The exhibition, the first of its kind in Azerbaijan, features over 200 pieces including the most favourite vehicles of the Princess. The latter ones were presented to the broad audience for the first time in Baku. The exhibition also dispays a variety of Grace Kelly’s garments from her movies, as well as the ceremonial dresses she wore once she became Princess of Monaco. The history of each costume along with interesting facts related thereto are also available. Paraphernalia of Grace Kelly also includes her favourite shoes, necklaces, gloves, and handbags. Grace Kelly’s garments and accessories presented at the exhibition further reveal the character of a personality that succeeded in becoming a true idol for millions.
