Wedding Dress for Grace Kelly (Sketch)
Movie actress Grace Kelly, a Philadelphia native, wore this wedding dress for her marriage to Prince Rainier III in the cathedral of Monaco on April 19,1956; Academy Award-winning designer Helen Rose, who had created Kelly’s costumes for the films High Society and The Swan, was chosen to design the gown, which was constructed by the MGM wardrobe department. In style and detail the dress was conceived to complement the “fairy-princess” image of the bride. A bell-shaped skirt of ivory peau de soie supported by three petticoats, a high-necked bodice of Brussels lace was re-embroidered so the seams would be invisible and then accented with seed pearls. Pearl-embellished lace also covers the prayer book, shoes, and cap, which is surmounted by an orange-blossom wreath. The circular silk net veil, especially designed so that the bride’s face could be seen, is decorated with appliquéd lace motifs including two tiny love birds
Happy birthday to one of my favourite directors, Wes Anderson!
"That’s personally what I want from the band; to be able to see the world with my sisters."
Give it just another couple months or so, then you’ll be ok. That’s what all the friends I do not like as much as you say.

Bassist Chris Baio explained to Artist Direct that the band’s name and the song Walcott originated from when front man Ezra Koenig went home for the summer between the freshman and sophomore years of college. He saw the movie The Lost Boys and wanted to make his own, east coast, New England version of the film:
“For two days he filmed this movie calledVampire Weekend about this guy named Walcott whose dad gets killed by vampires, and he travels up to Cape Cod to warn the mayor of Cape Cod that vampires are attacking the country. He only made it for two days, and then sort of forgot about it for a while. And, then, two-and-a-half years later, during his senior year, he sort of unearthed the footage for it, and made it into a two minute trailer. And that was about a month before the band got together; so when the band came together, we sort of took it and not over-think it. That, and the song ‘Walcott’ are the only connection to that movie.”
