"Grace was very, very serious about her film career. Then she became very serious about her career as a wife and mother and princess"
-Grace’s Fifties-era PR representative, Herb Steinberg
Twenty-six year-old Grace and her prince married in two ceremonies: the first took place at the Grimaldi family’s castle overlooking the Mediterranean and the second, a Roman Catholic mass, was held at Monaco cathedral. But the new princess hadn’t left behind her Tinseltown roots: her wedding gown – which used hundreds of yards of silk, taffeta and antique lace, along with thousands of tiny pearls – was created by MGM Studios designer Helen Rose.
