Say 'I do' To Grace Kelly Barbie

The epitome of elegance and sophistication, Grace Kelly lit up the silver screen as an Academy Award-winning actress, won the affections of Monaco royalty and thrilled the world as a charming, fashionable princess.

Now Barbie doll — another multifaceted beauty — pays homage to this global icon with the exquisite Grace Kelly Collection, which captures her timeless appeal as a movie star, bride, and real-life royalty.

The dazzling series debuts, quite appropriately, with Kelly’s first appearance in Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief. In the lavish 1955 romantic thriller about jewel heists on the French Riviera, Kelly — herself a rare gem — 'catches' the eye of a former cat burglar (Cary Grant) at a hotel casino. Kelly steals the scene and our hearts in her ravishing Edith Head-designed gown.

To Catch a Thief Barbie doll, designer Robert Best, in association with the Princess Grace Foundation, has perfectly recreated this delightful movie moment.

A year after filming the Hitchcock classic, Kelly returned to the Riviera for the Cannes Film Festival, where she met and fell in love with Prince Rainier of Monaco. The Grace Kelly Collection celebrates her next magical role as princess with two gorgeous Silkstone dolls.

Grace Kelly Bride doll wears a faithful reproduction of her intricately detailed wedding gown. The dress features a fitted torso with a sweet row of pearly buttons down the front, while the lengthy train incorporates a lovely lacy insert. The long tulle veil is trimmed in lace, and this beautiful bride carries a small ivory prayer book in one hand and a Lily of the Valley "bouquet" in the other. Her face paint is suitably subdued for the occasion, with simple pearl earrings adding a sophisticated final touch.

Grace Kelly The Romance doll features two of her best-known outfits, including the fabulous floral-print dress she wore in Cannes.

Fans can say 'I do' to Grace Kelly Bride doll and swoon over Grace Kelly The Romance doll. There's more in store, too — watch for Rear Window Grace Kelly doll in February 2012.
