He usually wears a white tux for the Red Cross Ball most of the time.

I thought he looked rather pale, as well! Then again, compared to his sisters, anyone would be pretty pale, so who knows.

The Rose Ball is the ball that usually has a different theme each year. The Red Cross Ball never has a theme as far as I know.

Yes, that's true. Maybe they should think of a theme, though, because the Red Cross Ball seems to be getting more boring every year. Every successive year, the number of stars drops, the quality of the stars drops, and, of course, Caroline keeps on sticking to that dichromatic black-white thing she seems to obsess over. Seriously, we get it, lady, there are dual aspects of your character- you're deep, you're elegant. Now throw away all the black crap and wear some pink or some blue or something that doesn't make you look so damn matronly.

I guess we see things in a completely different ways, as I think Caro looked absolutely perfect this year, elegant, with the hairstyle I prefer on her, she seemed even younger than recently, and I think the dress was absolutely appropriate (and very beautiful). But I know it's all a matter of opinion:)

Definitly i agree!!! . She looked younger, more thin, elegant
I love her dress!! And i like her black outfits they look so good in her, and remember that Caroline is 47 (or 48?) years old and dark coluors are the best choise. BTW if one day Caro came to the Red Cross Gala with a pink outfit i´ll be disappointed .
And her hair is great, that hairstyle is my favourite too.

Wonder if anyone knows who performed in 1999 and 2000 to complete the list.
I think I know :) In 1999 a short version of the musical "Notre Dame de Paris" was shown and in 2000 Shirley Bassey performed on stage.

Black and white is always so elegant and just simply shows class. Also, Caroline looks great in black and white and she knows it - that's why she wears it so much. I think she was beautiful at the ball. :)

Thanks for the great photos everyone! I was out of town all weekend, and didn't see this until late last night, but I was too tired to respond.

It looks like a great time. I thought that Stephanie especially seemed very relaxed and in my opinion, looked better than she had in ages. And Caroline, as always, looked wonderful. Albert looked very daper in his suit. It seems as if the three of them truly enjoyed themselves. :)

My one and only beautiful Steph
She was sexy that night ( she always is) :p

( source: newscom)

BTW, she did dance with Albert. Albert made no sign to the musicians. After dinner he just stood up with all eyes on him then he went around Steph's chair to her right and asked for the dance. Steph was surprised because it was not planed. The musiciains had to improvise....
