When Grace Kelly was crowned Princess Grace of Monaco, Hollywood met royalty. As an actress, she has inspired generations with her on-screen presence and off-screen style. As a princess, she has always been known for compassion, generosity, and love for the arts.

A fierce champion of women’s empowerment, child welfare, and equal rights, Grace Kelly was determined to leave the world a better place than she found it—making her a global trendsetter whose influence is everywhere.

She is celebrated for the forward-thinking ideas she’s brought to the world of fashion, and to the world at large. Anyone who knows Hermès knows the Kelly bag—that now-famous Sac à dépêches—that she used to block the paparazzi in her early days as a princess. The modern trends she has set in motion are everywhere you look—from Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen wedding gown to Penélope Cruz’s tucked waves at the Oscars. 


Her knack for spotting up-and-coming creative talent led to the Princess Grace Foundation—USA, one of the world’s most prominent funds for artists in film, theater, and dance. Past recipients include Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M Chu; actor and Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac; Grammy- and Tony Award-winning performer Leslie Odom Jr.; and American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Isabella Boylston.

Grace Influential is the place where Grace Kelly’s purpose and passions cross paths. Where the art and design of New York City, the luxury lifestyle of the French Riviera, and the changing faces and voices of modern Hollywood meet. Where the stories and styles of Grace Kelly continue to inspire.

I would like to be remembered as someone who accomplished useful deeds, and who was a kind and loving person.
