In the film The Country Girl(1954) Grace Kelly played Georgie, a long suffering wife of an alcoholic actor, as her character started to lose illusion of future and desire of being beautiful, her outfits changed as well, and one of them was a cardigan sweater, a sort of granny styled cardigan: cable knit, long, slightly oversized, with cheap-looking plastical buttons.
In her another film Dial M for Murder(1954) released the same month of the same year, Grace Kelly as wealthy socialite Margot also wore an cardigan sweater: cashmere, fine knit, pastel pink, embroidered, and fitting.
And that is how Grace Kelly wore a cardigan sweater in her life, most of the times: fitting, fine knit, lightweight, the discreet pastel colors, mostly cashmere. And her favorite brand, is Pringle of Scotland, which makes cashmere cardigans for Queen of England every year.
Grace Kelly wore her cardigan above a shirt, a blouse, a dress, or wears it alone, tucking into her skirt, or simply just throws it on her shoulders, always looking effortlessly elegant. Even after becoming a mother, Grace Kelly loved wearing cardigan, celebrating her first baby Caroline’s birth wearing one and knitting another for the new born princess.
