Ready to wear or couture? I still could not find her gown there either.& I checked both ready to wear & couture video collections. I have reviewed every periodical in sight& I could not find a gown of this nature attributed to the Maison. Would you have the kindness to give us the link to this if there is one?It is only fair to me a paying client at Dior that Miss Wittsock &I will not turn up anywhere in the identical gown.
many thanks
Dear Jaya, there is no need to worry! Charlene's dress was not from Dior. From what I could see it wasn't from any respectable designer. The dress looked cheap and poorly executed. I wouldn't be surprised if it was made by some unknown designer.

It would be interesting to see if a designer even acknowledges the dress. Not because the dress is bad. The dress is actually nice. I love the color. The worst thing to happen to this dress was to be worn by Charlene, someone who did not care enough to have the dress tailor to fit her. Tailor the dress and put it on a person who has deportation, style, grace, can walk without tripping and that coral dress would be a knock out.

probably the same South african designer as last time. Though Dior does have a few dresses that are reminiscent of what she was wearing, but the execution was different. And it certainly wasn't haute coture.

Well whom ever had designed "that" dress should sue Charlene for demages. On her it just looked like a sack of potatoes. JMO

I agree, the dress looked like it was from the store rack - not so spectacular color, too much fabric or not enouch fabric, or something and I'm not sure about the gathering thing in the front either.

Oh my -- well, she seems to fit right in with the rest of the bunch (except Caroline)

In pic #15, Charlotte, Eugenie, etc all have high-high heels on; Tatiana does not (flat sandles), so how tall is Tatiana? If the other women take their heels off, they're all about to her nose-level, correct?

i say she's about 5'10"-5'11". her mother is a model after all so maybe that's where it comes from.

Also, all of them have a huge issue with their hair. What a mess! Luckily for Albert he has no hair.
I completely agree on every point you have made here. The hair bothers me the most of it all, especially Andrea's, Tatiana's and Pierre's. Get some hair brushes!

They need to shampoo first. Very skanky hair! Looks greasy and stinky. I think also that both men are having their hair long to make it look abundant/cover the scalp. However, what this style does is emphasize how thin and sparse their hair is.

charlotte looked very pretty still, no thanks to her dress and her posture. i think eugenie, once again, 'outdressed' charlotte and company. my goodness some of the young women there looked like very pricey prostitutes, didn't they? :(
the men looked better, i've gotten used to the casiraghi brothers' hair and style. aside from them, the rest of the bunch looked, well, smokin' hot.

Yes indeed, their taste leaves plenty to be desired, but let's not forget that this was Monaco and a lot of women dress like that, even more so during special events in order to stick out. One woman was shown on TV wearing very long boots, hot pants, fishnet stockings and corsage top, sporting long black hair. She was shown walking to and from a yacht and the sports commentators couldn't help themselves. They were going like: did you see that? she looks like one of those latenight commercials followed by a phone number etcetc. That woman was probably overdoing it a little, but it was after all GP and Cannes nearby and then you get people like that, but even during normal summer season, women dress a lot more revealing then in other countries I have been to. And unfortunetly that usually looks cheap, no matter how much money was actually spent. A woman spending a fortune on totally ripped designer jeans still looks as my kids have put it: look mummy, that poor woman. she has all holes in her pants. Do you think we can buy her a new one?

It is about getting attention, no matter what kind. You have that as well in Hollywood were any publicity is good publicity. They are counting on us to forget what was yesterday. A lot of people do, except those whom they are trying to convince. To many of them Sharon Stone will always be remembered for spreading her legs in Basic instinct, but few will remember her occassional good acting (which apparently she has put ad acta since I can't remember any recent movie with her) because it is so rare. Whereas the majority of people will think of Sharon Stone the actress (though few would be able to tell you which movies) that campaigns against aids and adopts children.

I think they have long hair to cover their face, so they don't have to look people in the eyes.

Okay could we please get back on topic. Their hairstyles have been discussed well enough, and I think there are better threads to talk about those issues. You could also start a thread in the fashion forum.

Thanks for your cooperation,

For quite some time people have been criticizing her for dressing like 70+ woman, that she should change something, and then she wears something more "daring" and she's criticized again.

And one more thing, a mature woman like Caro who wears that kind of a dress confidently looks a lot sexier and attractive than any of those paperthin, anorexic models.
Totally agree. Caroline has always and continues to have a stunning figure and she looked marvelous. I thought the dress was great on her because it was balanced: short skirt, but a fairly high neck and 3/4 length sleeves; if it had had a v-neck and short sleeves, that would have been quite a different story. Also, I liked the way her jewelry pulled your eye to her upper body, not the skirt.

You sure it wasn't a call-girl? I seem to remember something about a trial recently. Some men from Nice were supplying escorts or call-girls, not to mention some decor dressing, to the rich and famous during the Grand Prix last year. From what I read it was a very lucrative business, so I wouldn't be surprised that someone filled the void, if only by means of a one-woman-business.

No it was not a call girl... some girls are ridiculous in Monaco... you can see them when you are here... I've also seen some children with Dior or Chanel ... for going to school.

Did Monaco have this reputation of superficial flashiness when Grace was still around? I know Monaco and the Grand Prix have been synonymous with opulence and affluence, but with some of the inputs here, it is obvious that the Principality's wealth does not excuse it from looking cheap.

What was the saying when Grace was there: Monaco a sunny place for shady people.

PARIS - Formula One's governing body cleared the McLaren team of any wrongdoing Wednesday in its 1-2 finish at the Monaco Grand Prix.
FIA opened an investigation Monday into possible rules violations after the team ordered Lewis Hamilton not to challenge Fernando Alonso in Sunday's race. Alonso finished first, 4.095 seconds ahead of Hamilton.
FIA dropped the case Wednesday after studying the radio traffic between the team and its drivers and the FIA observer's report from the race.
"It is clear that McLaren's actions during the 2007 Monaco Grand Prix were entirely legitimate and no further action is necessary," FIA said in a statement.
