In 1956, one of Hollywood’s most beloved actresses Grace Kelly wed Prince Rainier III of Monaco in what many referred to as the “wedding of the century”. Grace Kelly's wedding dress was designed by Helen Rose, wardrobe designer at MGM. The MGM wardrobe department made the wedding dress as a gift from MGM. The wedding gown was made from antique Valenciennes rose point lace, twenty-five yards of silk taffeta and ninety eight yards of tulle. Her veil was covered with appliquéd lace lovebirds and thousands of seed pearls.
