The bare skin and lips, filled in brows and thin black line on the upper lids would have been approppriate enough for both Grace Kelly or her aesthetician. Hair guru Guido Palau explains that the rich, lady hair:  "It's inspired by the 1950s but then becomes midcentury modern, which makes it such a sculptured look... It could be from the future but it also nods to the past."
