These are the five words Time magazine once used to describe Grace Kelly. The first half of the twentieth century was a time when Emily Post, the classic American expert on etiquette, encouraged women to wear gloves in their everyday lives, for both casual and formal affairs. In the fifties, wearing white gloves were not common in Hollywood, but Kelly, who was always properly dressed, wore her white gloves as part of her signature ladylike style.
