Inside Grace’s wardrobe…

I love this gown of Grace’s! I don’t know much about it except that it had a long pink skirt and beautiful beaded bodice with ribbon straps and a matching beaded jacket. (Love those details!)

Grace wore it to the 1964 Red Cross Ball (bottom photo) and to royal wedding celebrations of the Infanta Pilar (older sister of King Juan Carlos) in Spain in 1967.
