Olivier Dahan: Grace Kelly And Nicole Kidman Have Similar Struggles

Olivier Dahan Nicole Kidman Tom Cruise Keith Urban Prince Rainier Alfred Hitchcock

Director Olivier Dahan says Nicole Kidman was perfect for 'Grace of Monaco' since they shared similar marital struggles.

The filmmaker's latest project opened the Cannes Film Festival earlier this month and tells the story of the former Hollywood star's (played by Kidman) struggle to be the perfect royal while battling her own identity and wanting a film career.

Dahan believes Kidman - who was married to Tom Cruise, who practises Scientology, before she wed Keith Urban - can relate to her alter-ego since she struggled with a ''power underneath the person''.

Jordan's Wedding Named One Of Most Stylish Ever

The wedding of Jordan and Peter Andre has been named as one of the most stylish of all time.

Upmarket bridal magazine Conde Nast Brides has named the Barbie-Pink ceremony the ninth most stylish in its list of the top 50 chic weddings ever.

Beating the cool white Yves St Laurent trouser suit worn by Bianca Jagger in 1971, the magazine had to hand it to Jordan for doing her own thing: "Jordan's Swarovski-crystal and tulle wedding dress transformed her from C-list to A-list overnight. Whether you love it or not, you have to admire her for living out her fairytale dream."

More predictably, the nuptials of classic Hollywood beauty Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956 was named the ultimate in bridal glamour with Aussie star Nicole Kidman taking second place for the elegant one-shouldered gown worn to her wedding to troubled rocker Keith Urban last year.

The ex-wife of Tom Cruise, Nicole beat Katie Holmes in the magazine's style rankings. Katie wore a classic Armani gown to her nuptials to the Mission Impossible actor last year but couldn't do better than Jordan's huge pink gown, one-foot-high tiara and fairytale-style wedding carriage.

Prince Albert Set To Wed?

Charlene Wittstock Prince Rainier Nicole Coste Naomi Campbell Claudia Schiffer

PRINCE ALBERT of Monaco's bachelor days are numbered following reports the European royal is set to wed former South African Olympian Charlene Wittstock. Blonde Wittstock, 28, has become a constant companion to Albert in recent months, accompanying the Monaco leader to the Winter Olympics in Italy and at the Monte Carlo Grand Prix last month (MAY06). Insiders claim the potential bride-to-be has been shopping around for an engagement ring and has reportedly met with BERNARD BARSI, the Archbishop Of Monaco, to discuss wedding ceremony plans. Reports of an upcoming engagement come after a difficult year for Albert, who took over from his father Prince Rainier as Monaco's ruler last year (05) following Rainier's death. Just weeks after Albert's coronation, he was forced to acknowledge he had fathered an illegitimate son with Togolese air stewardess Nicole Coste. Another love child emerged earlier this year (06) when Albert recognised 14-year-old JAZMIN ROTOLO as his daughter from a brief romance with a Californian waitress. The 48-year-old royal has had a string of high-profile girlfriends, including supermodels Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer.
