STYLE FOR A STATE VISIT
A re-creation of an outfit Grace chose from the Lanvin-Castillo collections – a fashion house owned by relatives of Rainier. Made for her trousseau, it was designed to wear with the sash, star and badge of the Monegasque Order of St Charles. Grace wore the outfit when she met French President Charles de Gaulle on a state visit to Paris in 1959.
