Designer Helen Rose - Classic designs that could be worn today

Nominated an additional eight times she was a favorite among the famed and wealthy. She also was trusted to design the wedding dresses of many, including Grace Kelly to Prince Rainier of Monaco and Elizabeth Taylor to Conrad Nicky Hilton.
