Maybe Diana will be perform Endless Love to open the Ball.

Charlene looks nice too, is it me or does her look seem a bit Grace Kelly in "To Catch a Thief". Virgina Gallico is there too.

I like Caroline's look, obviously all three ladies look OK comparing to last years.

There are several pretty little tug boats all coloured up with lights floating around the Sporting.

The fog coming down from Mont Agel is very thick. There is a lot of humidity tonight. The air feels almost wet.

I heard some of the music coming from down there. Now things got sort of quieter.

Why don't they smile? Are they unhappy about something? This is not a funeral is it?

All curves Caroline wearing her Chanel this year.Is that her trying to prove she is not a man? wow!va voom.........
She has put some weight on in all the right places...spectacular evening gown...and I like that entry of hers with Pa, arm in arm absolutely fab......
United we stand divided we fall....Just cannot help loving those Grimaldis.
Steph's gown was lovely.More later and on CWin her thread as more pics come over the newswire.

Let us give an honest answer:

When you see the bald man in his white smoking and the three ladies, would you think these are members of the Hochadel ?

Where are the happy faces?

Princess Grace would always come with a smile...

Is it me or is Charlene trying to appear like Grace with the hair pulled back and the white strapless dress - like the one in the lovely portrait of Grace in the hall of mirrors?

Lanvin gown of Princess Grace

{quoted material deleted for consistency - Elspeth}
The gown Princess Grace wore in the famous Ralph Cowan portrait is about twenty yards or metres of a confection by the House Of Lanvin.It had seed pearls in the bustier etc. quite the work of art.
Check with me in Cw fashion for commenatry on her gown.
thanks

I wish they had come with the kids, breathe some youth into this. I'll never forget Caroline's first appearance at 16, in Dior, flanked by her father and mother who let her have the spotlight that day, and a few months later, at the Rose ball, in white. Those were the days... And Caroline did smile, and what a smile !

Incidentally, has Princess Caroline attended all the Red Cross Balls since all her babies were late spring, early summer babies ? i can't remember...
I know she attended after her separation from Philippe Junot, and almost cried when Frank Sinatra sang that really sad song (forget its title). Well, I know this thread is about tonight, not decades ago. Still, some of you can probably relate...

Also, beautiful as Stephanie looks, she is beginning to look a little like her aunt Antoinette, same kind of slouch. (Or is Charlene really a giant everybody has to look up to ? Just kidding.) Nothing wrong with that, it's just that we need young people around !

Not like "To Catch a Thief" as Grace wore a special tasteful diamond necklace she brought to Monaco in all her scenes with the white strapless gown she wore in the movie and her hair was not pulled back into a chignon.
