Fashion Friday: High Society (1956)

Searching for inspiration to complete your 1950s vintage look? Settle down with a style icon for an afternoon. 

Last week I wanted to be Audrey Hepburn. This week I'm dreaming of being Grace Kelly. (Hint next it'll be Katherine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story. High Society is a musical remake of that film.)
