Beatrice Borromeo channels elegant Grace Kelly on wedding day

At both her civil ceremony and religious wedding, Beatrice Borromeo had no less than five outfit changes. The Italian beauty, who has married Princess Caroline of Monaco's son Pierre Casiraghi, made one glamorous appearance after another.

On Saturday she walked down the aisle at her and Pierre's second wedding in an ethereal ivory gown designed by Giorgio Armani.

Royal watchers were quick to note that Beatrice' dress was reminiscent of one worn by another style icon of her time, Grace Kelly, who would have been her grandmother-in-law.

The late American actress was married to Prince Rainier III, but sadly passed away in Monte Carlo in 1982. Grace was the epitome of elegance during her time – not dissimilar to 29-year-old Beatrice.

Fast forward a few decades and Beatrice stunned at her religious wedding, which took place on her family's Borromean Islands.

The bride selected a gorgeous lace dress from Armani's Privé collection, which featured a round high neckline and demure three-quarter length sleeves. To complete her bridal look, Beatrice swept her blonde locks into an understated bun.

Her look was comparable to when Grace stepped out in 1955, to attend a Cannes Film Festival party. It was during this period in May that the Hollywood star met her future husband, Prince Rainier III, when she was in fact still dating French actor Jean-Pierre Aumont.

A photograph taken at the party showed Grace wearing a beautiful dress that featured a nipped-in waist, round neckline and long sleeves – similar to Beatrice's wedding dress.

Beatrice and her long-term love Pierre married for the second time on Saturday 1 August on Lake Maggiore. The ceremony took place on the private Isolino di San Giovanni, but lucky residents and tourists were able to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds as they headed to their reception at nearby Rocca d'Angera.

Making their way to the castle by boat, Beatrice again showed off her sartorial prowess in a second Armani gown – a silk tulle evening dress that transformed the statuesque blonde into a Greek goddess.
