As both a royal of Hollywood and Monaco, Grace Kelly was a beacon of style who no doubt passed out her sartorial prowess to granddaughter Charlotte Casiraghi. The recently-engaged brunette definitely looks the part of a princess. But hold on a second — while statuesque Charlotte and her regal bearing regularly make headlines, she isn’t the only girl Grace could’ve claimed as grandchild. In fact, there are five Kelly girls changing the world today, and each one has a style that taps into a facet of their famous grandmother’s personality.
In fact, the flaxen-haired actress Jazmin Grace Grimaldi embodies the actress in her cool and carefree days…without even meeting her royal family for a decade. And who’s to say that with a slash of scarlet lipstick, Camille Gottlieb couldn’t pass as Grace’s twin, despite her penchant for cut-up t-shirts?
Look, no one could replace the timeless icon. But we’re happy to see that Grace’s legacy lives on in her fascinating granddaughters. And that definitely starts with their own sense of style, which suffice to say, is more extravagant than ours. What can we say? They have some high heels to fill.
Charlotte Casiraghi Style
Parents: Princess Caroline of Hanover/Monaco and Stefano Casiraghi
Everything that Charlotte, the 31-year-old equestrian beauty, wears can be described as one thing: epic. Secondarily, the princess is constantly covered in fresh foliage, weaving a palace garden into nearly everything she wears. Why? Well, Charlotte is the face of flower-foward label Gucci's Forever Now campaign, and there's a lineage there too. In 1966, designer Rodolfo Gucci created the flora pattern to dress up a headscarf...commissioned by none other than Princess Grace.
Jazmin Grimaldi Style
Parents: Prince Albert II and Tamara Rotolo
Though 26-year-old Jazmin grew up detached from her Monégasque relatives, her upbringing in the California sun had her growing up spirited and entertainment-obsessed. Now a New York resident, Jazmin is an actress-singer who mirrors her grandmother's more playful, Hollywood side.
"I love the pictures where she's quirky and smiling. There's one of her wearing a bathing suit, holding an orange on a stick, with these excited eyes," she told Harper's Bazaar. "She seems so natural and carefree."
Jazmin manages to capture a quirkiness in her own style, mixing in structured elements to balance it out. Best of all, her bubbly personality absolutely pops off every photo. Grace would be proud!
Pauline Ducruet Style
Parents: Princess Stephanie of Monaco and Daniel Ducruet
23-year-old Pauline's entire world is fashion, having graduated from Parson's School of Design and interned at Vogue. But don't expect any elegant Edith Head knock-offs in her clothing line.
"My parents never said to me, 'You have to do this, or dress like that," she told French newspaper Point de Vue. "They always let me do things in accordance with my personality. I’ve always been a little rock n' roll." (Her younger half-sister Camille has echoed this sentiment).
Sure enough, Pauline's neutral-toned outfits are worn with an air of nonchalance and a little bit of attitude. She's no Hitchcock blonde, but if you're able to carry a leather suit with full confidence, you're a lethal femme fatale.
Camille Gottlieb Style
Parents: Princess Stephanie of Monaco and Jean-Raymond Gottlieb
Mon dieu! Camille has definitely adopted aspects of Pauline's rock-n-roll looks, choosing to keep things a little bit more casual. 19-year-old Camille isn't afraid to wear a t-shirt or get a handful of tattoos, and yet she still loves to make a statement. She won't shy away from a set of mega-karat earrings, a pair of bold lips, or a pair of statement eyeglasses. And yes, though she's not as prim as Princess Grace, Camille grew up learning about the star from her mom.
"Every time my mother tells me about her, it's to say what an extraordinary woman and what an exemplary mother she was," she shared.
Princess Alexandra Of Hanover Style
Princess Alexandra of Hanover
Parents: Princess Caroline of Hanover/Monaco and Prince Ernst August
The 18-year-old Austrian granddaughter of Grace can be seen in soft, sheer blush tones for events and monochromatic, clean stripes for streetwear. Her silhouettes are often-free flowing, although that doesn't mean Alex — yes, she goes by that — is undisciplined. In fact, the teen wears many dazzling outfits when she participates in competitive figure skating. And may we just say it, out on the ice she sure looks graceful.
Princess Gabriella, Countess of Carladès
Parents: Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene
Alright, so at 3 years old Gabriella, one-half of Prince Albert's cherubic twins, hasn't developed her own look just yet. But keep an eye out for this little blonde — we're sure she'll inherit that Kelly sense of style soon!
