Stephane Bolongaro pays Tribute to Grace Kelly at the Musee de l’Automobile de Monaco

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I just came back from a short trip to Monte-Carlo and I was not there to gamble even thought everywhere you look your eyes fall upon a Casino.The artist Stephane Bolongaro threw a party to celebrate 90 years of Grace Kelly, that is how old she would have been had she lived.Grace Kelly grew up in Philadelphia and you all know the fairytale story from actress to Princess of Monaco. In her honour Bolongaro made a big sculpture of Grace Kelly and commissioned many artists to create art in celebration of Grace Kelly’s life. The event drew a large crowd, the double of what they were expecting hence I could not actually see most of the celebrities on hand like Victoria Abril, Linda Evans fromDynasty and Patrick Duffy from Dallas but I did meet La Toya Jackson.  We had a very short chat  but long enough for her to tell me she liked my Rouge Margaux coat. Later,
