The first trailer for Nicole Kidman's turn as Grace Kelly in the Grace of Monaco biopic has debuted online.
Playing to the famous Puccini opera aria O Mio Babbino Caro (Oh My Beloved Father) used in the 1985 film A Room With a View, the minute-long teaser shows glimpses of Kidman as the Hollywood starlet-turned-princess.
Images of luxury give an insight into the opulent life Kelly lived as a member of the royal family in Monaco.

Set in 1962, the film tells the story of Kelly's involvement with Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle dispute over tax laws in the early 1960s.
Kelly married Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, to become Princess consort of Monaco in April 1956.
She died died in a car crash in 1982.
Grace of Monaco will be released in Australia on January 16.
