A Touch of Grace

Deep down, past the cynicism and hurt and emotional walls most of us carry, I think nearly every woman has the image of Grace Kelly (or a similar representative) in their head as the ultimate, though unreachable, female aspiration. It’s less about her than what she embodied - style, elegance, femininity, charm, intelligent flirtation, and, if you’ve watched The Rear Window as many times as I have, a desire for love and a hint of danger. My thanks goes out to the Princess of Monaco for the inspiration.
