According to a recent French biography about Princess Grace, Grace K. and Jackie K. couldn't stand each other. Let alone the competitive beauty and look thing, they were two sugar babies born in 1929 who managed their way up to the top and married princes charming. But Grace was always ahead and Jackie could never ever stand it. In 1957, she used the same Caroline name for her daughter but she'll have to wait the end of the 1960s to get a luxury brand bag named after her, the Jackie O Gucci bag, whereas Grace obtained it right away from Hermès in 1956. And so and so.  Icons' lives can be so harsh sometimes…
