  1. Grace Kelly!! No doubt she had a “princess style”, heh, heh.

  2. Kim Novak’s character in Vertigo! Snappy little suits, especially the all black ensemble with the white overcoat.

  3. I couldn’t possibly pick just one but I’ve always loved Iris Henderson (Margaret Lockwood) from The Lady Vanishes.

    That coat!
    But there’s also Charlie (Teresa Wright) from Shadow of a Doubt.

  4. Grace Kelly – especially in Rear Window!

  5. Just a word for Googie Withers, (The Lady Vanishes) who died this week age 94 at her Sydney home.

  6. Grace Kelly, hands down. Though Kim Novak is a close second.

  7. Eva Marie Saint in North by Northwest.

    This is the film that was specifically responsible for prompting me to try and sew with vintage patterns. Love it and all of her outfits.

  8. Grace Kelley! I love her outfits from “To Catch a Thief!”

  9. My vote goes to Tippi Hendren in The Birds – rich socialite – every costume perfectly showed that!

  10. They are all so amazing how could I ever choose. It’s one of the reasons I love Hitchcock. I do think Grace Kelley is amazingly beautiful.

  11. Rina Costenaro

    i love Tippi Hedren in Marnie.
