Other than Audrey Hepburn, nobody ever wears a white shirt so elegantly like Grace Kelly. From crispy white to soft pearly white, from structured poplin to fluid silk, from the simplest button-down, to the most frivolous stand-up, Grace Kelly can make a white shirt feminine, whether rolling up her sleeves or keep them cuffed. And with the help of a silk scarf around her neck or on her hand, she can transform the plainest white shirt, even the less flattering short sleeved white shirt.
And when she wears a chignon with the white shirt, the shirt is not a piece of garment any more, it becomes a ceremony. Only Carolyn Bessette, the daughter-in-law of Jackie Kennedy, can wear a chignon with white shirt like her.
