To just jump into that Steph-discussion: I just think that she is not a princess like all the others ( Leatizia, Mary, Mette,Victoria, Maxima....and I dunno who else) But she never was and probably she never will. What's the problem with that? I mean she doesn't even claim to be that kind of ideal-princess. Most people like her just the way she is, all Monegasques do, 'cause she's their little princess ( almost 40...) She's just an original,: frank, loyal, sweet, nice, helping, careing etc. ...at least thats how I got to know her and how she always behaved with me.
There's a little thing that appears to me by now: These men-stoties!!! I always thought: Well she was just unlucky in this for all the time..but now after that short mariage-intermezzo with Adans and having already a new guy...hmmm I dunno really what to think of this...it's a bit confusing and maybe also kinda stupid of her to jump from one relationship into another at her age with three kids etc....Until now I always saw and understood why she did the things she did. Today I'm a little lost ( Maybe I gotta talk to her....maybe we all should before judging...) On the other hand I think it is not necessary to understand every step Steph does. She's just a human beeing.People make choices all day...some choices are right and some are wrong....maybe her choice of Adans was wrong, even though she could have been thinking about it more carefully before marrying him ( at least I would have done so..I guess) But, see...I'm not her...we're different...and hey...this is her life. And whenever I met her and that kids they seemed to be happy in their life. Maybe it would be good for steph to calm down a little and understand that she doesn't necessarily need a man on her side to be a valid person. But she has to decide and live that on her own. She's old and clever enough to do so I believe.
So that's how I see this: You can critizise Stephanie's choices and make better suggestions or state what you would like better or not etc. but I also think it's a bit rude to say that she looks horrible and stuff like that. But I won't keep you from doing so (and I can't) because if this is your opinion..go ahead.
People have different tastes thats for sure but hey noone can reject that Stephanie has beautiful eyes ( can you?) and a great figure.
And why do you think that the Red Cross dress looks cheep: It's from Jicky, a famous french designer and friend of Steph...and maybe you should look on it a second time : It fits her...and the haircut is very original too...well, that's Steph...she just special ...not such a boring everyday 'I'm l-like -all-the-others' - princess...that's what makes her STEPHANIE....
After all she's extremly loved over here in Europe, especially by her own people.
You should go there and you'd understand the affection they have for their princess.
Because she does a lot of good. She works very hard for her 'Fight Aids Monaco' asso, for handicaped people,old people and kids. She does all of this with her passioned heart. Why should she learn from Caro? Maybe Caro could learn some from her lilltle sis...or maybe they should just stay the way they are...they're a great mixture...
I think part of the problem is people have unrealistic expectations on who and what Princess Stephanie should do and be. Being born with the Legacy of Fame" it must be hard for her and overwelhming at times and I'm sure she has resented it. think of the late JFK jr. people in the US and in the New York area put him up on such a high pedestal and have people who wanted to use him and just project their own baggage and then complain about his choices in personal life ( chosen carreer & wife) .
I don't think she is 100% perfect I also don't think she is mean or vapid and shallow as some of the aspiring NYC socialite are- the ones that "do charity work" to be in the magazines most of the money gets spend on food and flowers.
As for her choices in men she does have a bit of a loser streak ( it could be worse she could windup with Blackie Lawless !!! ) but what about the one Princess Mafalda (can't remember of what country) who was in last years Vanity Fair royals issue she's the same age and Steph and has kids with every guy and is on her 3rd hubby too guess it's o.k because she's a blonde. I'm not a big fan of Stephs'but I do think she tries her best as a daughter, and a mother and unfortunatly she will always fall short for some people.
:) ...Well, we all know, right...? :p ...Stephanie's the one for the guys...or maybe more: The one with the guys ..... So here I go and start this one with some of hose who did not only cross the Princess' ways but meant a whole lot more...or just a bit more...some more , some less:) ....
Steph et ses mecs ....
