Nicole Kidman as Grace KellyFameFlynet, Everett

Hollywood royalty meets, well, true royalty.

Photos emerged Tuesday of Nicole Kidman dressed up as Princess Grace Kelly, shooting scenes for the upcoming film Grace of Monaco. The movie, set in 1962, follows the tragic star, who hit it big in Hollywood before marrying Price Rainier of Monaco in 1956.

Kidman wears a short blonde wig for the role (we like it!), and will likely don a variety of vintage looks (like the yellow jacket she wore Tuesday) throughout filming. Kelly was known for her classic sense of style and often flamboyant hats, which we can’t wait to see.

Production is currently taking place in Menton, a commune in the southeastern section of France, not far from Monaco. Kidman’s husband, Keith Urban, has been by with the couple’s daughters, Sunday and Faith, during the shoot.

Grace of Monaco¬†also features Tim Roth as Prince Rainier, plus Paz Vega, Parker Posey, Frank Langella and Milo Ventimiglia. The film’s director, Olivier Dahan, also directed 2007’s acclaimed La Vie en Rose. Tell us: What do you think of Kidman as Kelly — do the women look alike?¬†

i don’t see a resemblance whatsoever. also, nicole kidman did not age gracefully at all.

I think Nicole looks amazing. She will bring a real elegance and charm to the role of Princess Grace. Bravo!!!!

Devara on

She looks more like Eva Marie Saint than Grace Kelly.

Although Nicole Kidman is gracefully beautiful, she doesn’t look like Princess Grace…my choice would be Heidi Klum, who is a model not an actress, but these days anyone who is famous can “act” in a movie…just saying!

julia on

she doesn’t look at all like her. they really should have picked someone much younger and fresher. what were the producers thinking?

sandra on

January Jones would have been a better option.

She will bring “elegance and charm to the role” GRACE was the epitome of ELEGANCE AND CHARM… Nicole will NOT do the role justice she is so annoying and frozen I wish she’d just stay in Nashville and live off Urban…

Diana on

January Jones would have been a far better choice!

I think Amy Adams would look just like Grace if she had on a short, blonde wig!

I think Amy Adams would like just like Grace if she had on a short blonde wig!
