If anyone should channel Grace Kelly, it should be Jazmin Grace Grimaldi.

The 23-year-old paternal granddaughter of the Hollywood icon is making her official debut into the public eye with a Harper's Bazaar fashion spread that pays ode to Old Hollywood glamour.

In the shoot styled by Joanna Hillman and photographed by Michael Avedon (grandson to Richard Avedon, who photographed Grace back in the day), the eldest daughter of Prince Albert II of Monaco wears a series of elegant looks from designers such as Carolina Herrera, Vera Wang Bride and Ralph Lauren Collection. Her hair is styled in a blond bob, much like her late grandmother's, and her makeup kept elegant and simple, putting her milky complexion into the spotlight.


Jazmin, who is currently living in New York and pursuing a career as a singer and actress, says she was introduced to Kelly through her films, citing watching "High Society" as one of her first and fondest memories involving her grandmother."

"It was the first time I realized we had a connection. I'm passionate about acting, singing, and dancing," she told the magazine. "I saw that in her in this movie. It was a real goose-bumps moment for me."

She also reveals that when she was little, she didn't realize how big of an impact her grandmother had made.

"When I was little, my mom would show me photographs of her, but I didn’t understand that she was this huge icon," she revealed. "I love the pictures where she’s quirky and smiling. There’s one of her wearing a bathing suit, holding an orange on a stick, with these excited eyes, she seems so natural and carefree."


And though she has only recently connected with her father (Jazmin's mother had a brief relationship with the prince and decided to raise her daughter out of the royal spotlight after she gave birth), she has travelled to Monaco many times to spend time with the prince, his wife of four years, Princess Charlene, and their children.

This isn't the first time Harper's Bazaar has tapped the grandchild of a Hollywood icon for its pages -- last year they enlisted Emma Ferrer, granddaughter to Audrey Hepburn, to cover their August 2014 subscriber's issue.

If Emma's success following the spread is any indication, we have a feeling Jazmin will be one to watch!
