They’re not as cute as unlikely animal friendships, I grant you that. But I can make it up to you! Because in Classic Hollywood, it was a really small world.
A REALLY small world.
What this means for us is that there are records of fashion icons meeting and even hanging out–fashion icons that you would never, ever (ever) put together.
Let’s start slow. Here’s a pairing that isn’t world-rocking, but is still gorgeous to see together: Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly
And here they are actually talking!
I like to imagine that Grace just told Audrey that she’s so pretty, and Audrey is now saying, “No, YOU’RE so pretty!”
Okay, now let’s play some dominos. Here’s Grace with the woman a lot of people thought of as American royalty…
Grace really made the rounds, because here she is with Elizabeth Taylor–not once, but twice, decades apart!
Is your mind boggled yet? Well, hold on, because we’re about to pivot from “people Grace Kelly knew” by moving on to…
Have you ID’d our stars yet? Here, we actually have Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor together…
And here they are again, playing “who wore it best?”
Let’s wrap this up with a photo of a meeting I bet you never knew happened.
That’s right. Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. Twinsies.
Now, if I could only find a picture of Grace Kelly, Barbra Streisand, and a goat cuddling a kitten, my life’s work will have been completed.
