From the February, 1956 Harper's Bazaar-String Beige.

'The lightweight spring wool suit, further lightened by its cut- the hip bone jacket, the flare-pleated skirt- and a twist of marigold silk tucked into the collar.'

Grace Kelly,pictured wearing the same suit, is about to depart the US for her wedding to the Prince of Monaco.

Grace Kelly was a big fan of Ben Zuckerman, and asked him to design her several suits and outfits for her wedding in Monaco. Apparantly Mr Zuckerman was so overwhelmed by this request that his spring season clothing of 1956 were late. Another well known outfit by Zuckerman worn by Grace Kelly is the navy dress and coat that she wore when arriving in Monaco.
