Grace Kelly's gowns are taking centre stage at a British museum.

Dresses from films such as High Society and Rear Window feature in the new exhibition at the V And A in London.

The exhibition dedicated to the screen siren turned European princess, Grace Kelly: Style Icon, opens on Saturday.

Included is the gown she wore to accept her Oscar in 1955 as well as the outfit she wore to her first meeting with Prince Rainier - her future husband - later that year.

As Princess Grace of Monaco, she favoured gowns by couturiers such as Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Yves St Laurent, whose work is displayed.

The actress was killed in a car accident in 1982. The exhibition continues from Saturday until September 26.
