Where’s my English husband?

Lady Diana Spencer at Goldsmiths Hall, her first official function during her engagement to Prince Charles in 1981.

Wearing the famous strapless silk gown, before she stepped out of the car, her fiancé proudly told waiting photographers, ‘You won’t believe what’s coming next!’.

Grace is behind Diana

Which is more important in a movie: enjoyable characters, or an engaging story? Can you enjoy a movie if you don’t sympathize with any of the characters? What about if the story is too predictable or unbelievable?

My favorite movie is Rear Window. I can watch that movie on repeat until the cows come home.

I mean just… Grace Kelly

I was introduced to Rear Window by my junior year speech teacher at Earl Warren High School. She asked us watch the movie on silent and write down what we thought the movie was about. Then she let us watch it with sound. The results were that everyone knew what it was about. I guess that would mean it was predictable, but I view it as being acted and written well. The actors were able to express the story through body language and words were not needed. The acting chops displayed in this movie are so rare now. Which is sad because that makes good movies hard to find.

When Rear Window was released, strong women were not popular. Maybe my feminist side is tingling, but Grace Kelly represented to me how a woman can remain classy, yet still exhume strength. She helped her photographer boyfriend catch a murderer! Back in Kelly’s day, that type of gumption was unheard of.

I don’t like gloves. Yes, I know Grace loved them. But the idea just doesn’t appeal to me… maybe being from a tropical country has something to do with it. So not royal of me, right? :(

Really? I love gloves! They’re super elegant in various lengths and really take an outfit to the next level. I can see why you may not want to wear them in your climate, but some perks about them are they protect your hands from sun damage and protect them from elements to keep them soft. They’re a great accessory, too, obviously. If you wish to like them, maybe you could try a really breathable light pair in a bright color with a sun dress and hat. Nothing wrong with disliking them, even as a Grace fan, though :)

Visually speaking, gloves distract me from the main outfit. And, on the very few occasions I wore them, my hand movements were extremely restricted - I couldn’t do a thing! Of course, during a very cold winter - which we practically don’t have where I live - I’d beg to wear them, but out of sheer need!

Well, Grace, all I can say is…
