Eagerly awaited – Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly

January 6th, 2014


The publicity stills and on-set photographs have got people pretty excited about a film set for release in March. ‘Grace of Monaco’ is a film about Princess Grace, formally Grace Kelly, and is set during the early 1960s, a period when the Princess considered returning to Hollywood filming in Hitchcock’s Marnie. This was not a happy period in time for Princess Grace, and by focusing on this particular time, we get to see the not-so-happy ever after behind the fairytale wedding.

In the film Grace is played by a modern Hollywood goddess and style icon, Nicole Kidman. I’m a huge fan of Nicole for both her acting and sense of style, she is fabulous in ‘Moulin Rouge’,’ The Others’ and ‘To Die For’, but I’m not sure how she will play the role and whether she is right for it. Beautiful and glamorous, and tall and elegant, I can see why Nicole was chosen, but I’m still not convinced that Nicole will be anything other than herself doing an impression of Grace. The funny thing is, I would’ve preferred to see Naomi Watts in this role (rather than in the poor Diana film.).

All this said, I’m still looking forward to seeing the film, if only for the fabulous recreations of Grace’s Princess style. This is regal Grace we will be looking at, during her Marc Bohun at Dior period, and the evening dresses that have already been revealed are as spectacular as we would’ve hoped for.

    Waaaa, I can’t see how Nicole was a logical choice for this? Charlize Theron maybe? Naomi Watts I could see too, or January Jones or Rosamund Pike. I like Nicole, but I do agree that she is always kind of ‘Nicole’.

    By the way, those fabulous full skirts from Coast have given me the urge to splurge…

    Think Sharon Stone would’ve been a better choice, she resembles her much more.
