Grace Kelly, Princess de Monaco - (detail) - 1956 - Photo by Howell Conant - @Mlle

On the boat to Monaco. When Grace arrived and descended from the boat in this outfit, people were unhappy that the hat blocked the view of her face.

Not a lot of old style elegance in bathing gear anymore...love this photograph.
