Irish Green

StPatrick's revelers thought wearing green made one invisible to leprechauns, fairy creatures who would pinch anyone they could see (anyone not wearing green). People began pinching those who didn't wear green as a reminder that leprechauns would sneak up and pinch green-abstainers.

Myopic Princess

 Alfred Hitchcock's muse, Grace Kelly also captured the heart of Prince Rainer of Monaco at the Cannes Film Festival in 1955, and she went on to become a princess at the age of 26. She was one of Hollywood's golden girls, but also a veritable style icon remembered for a distinctive look that featured dresses by renowned Hollywood costume designers including Helen Rose and Edith Head, exceptional pearl and diamond jewelry, Herm├Ęs bags, Pringle of Scotland twin-sets and haute couture Christian Dior dresses.
