Grace Kelly Covers Tatler In Iconic 1955 Edith Head Dress (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

She may have passed away in 1982, but Princess Grace is having a moment. The princess of Monaco is the latest cover star of Tatler, with one of her most iconic photos peering back at readers of the December 2013 issue.

The icy green dress on the cover is by Edith Head, the most influential costume designer who outfitted Grace Kelly in movies like "To Catch A Thief." Grace wore the green frock to the 1955 Oscars and was later photographed in it by Life magazine.

Now it's landing on newsstands once again, as Princess Grace enjoys an uptick of popularity. The Philadelphia-born noble and actress is the subject of a new exhibit, "From Philadelphia to Monaco: Grace Kelly Beyond The Icon," at the Michener Museum in Doylestown, Pa. And just this week, Princess Charlene of Monaco, who's married to Princess Grace's son Albert, honored her mother-in-law's memory at the Princess Grace Awards Gala in New York City.

Charlene even wore green. Check out Princess Grace on the gorgeous, nostalgia-inducing Tatler cover below and see more at
