This year ball was just sad. A lot of tacky dressed woman. Of course Victoria S. looks vulgar like always.
Last year I was disappointed by the ball, especially by those blue topless dancers. This years no nudity , decoration is very nice-wonder if anyone paid attention.
But what makes this ball less than exciting are guests and how they dressed. Red Cross Ball is losing its glamour.

Obviously it had to be ok with Charlene too. I didn't like Nicole's hair but I thought her dress was really interesting.
I really don't want to argue, but I think the war just started. Based on Nicole's past actions and her recent charity activities I believe she just started a indirect media war with Charlene. NC is here because everyone can come here-it was not invitation ball, everyone could buy a ticket-$1000 or something.

BTW, Charlene dress was really nice, same as her hair and make up. It looks like they (Monaco PR) treat her image seriously because she looks good in pics recently. But she still has problem with pulling this all together- proof: wet bottom of her dress. She probably can't carry a dress with train.

Stephanie was just looking horrible. She looked as if she just came back from performing a show in Las Vegas.

It is a second Red Cross Ball in the row without Caroline. Monaco needs her, especially at such occasions.

If PA invited Nicole I'm glad. The ball was boring and no excitement at all. PS look like she didn't want to be there. CW think it all about her. PA just was there.

Stephanie's 'chest boost' is really awkward and I hope she didn't have a boob job.

Why not? If she likes it. CW has done everything possible in her face; if she could, she would do anything possible in her body, because, really, there´s no dress that can fit her.

I think Stephanie looks very much Caroline in that dress.

Stephanie has magnificent legs-just like Caroline-but she spent waaay too much time in the sun, and damaged her skin with cigarette smoke...also like Caroline.

Her body type is similar to CW's. I understand having one's breasts lifted and enhanced after reaching a certain age, but Stephanie appears to have gone a little overboard.

And that dress looks like something a drag queen would wear...not a good night for the Princess at all.

CW's otherwise flawless appearance was marred by the soaking of the hem of her gown...how the hell did that happen??

They both look wonderfully happy. I am looking forward to their wedding next July. Charlene will be wonderful for Monaco, Prince Albert has chosen someone he loves and Princess Grace would have loved her too I am sure.

Charlene is dignified and elegant and has never behaved badly unlike some other members of the Monaco family.

Some of the comments about her are not really acceptable....

I really liked Charlene's dress, and really disliked Stephanie's even though the dress is totally her style. It's visible that Princess Stephanie had plastic cirurgy on her breasts, while Charlene had some work also done on her face, recently when I was watching some old and new photos of her I realize that she done something to her breasts, they defenitly look bigger.

WOW! Charlene is looking more beautiful each time I see her dressed for a very elegant occasion. I liked everything, her dress is simple but so elegant (beige is a pretty color for her), the jewelry is gorgeous (the earrings are driving me crazy combined with the bracelet and ring), her makeup and hair made her look so strikingly beautiful. She has turned into a swan and to becoming one of the most photographed women in the world. I cannot say the same for Princess Stephanie. She needs to improve her choices just like Charlene has done. Prince Albert and Charlene seem to be happy and in love. They will make very good host and hostess as Princes of Monaco, I do believe that. Charlene has come a long way and I'm pleased with her transformation.

The more I look at the pictures, the more I think Charlene was the best dressed and the most beautiful at the gala.

It's in the zimbio gallery on the first page of this thread, not sure if
the following link will stay: Nicole Coste.


Here's a gallery from ppe and an article from HOLA:

I think if Charlene can get the "royal treatment" in terms of having stylists, make-up artists and haridressers, why can't Stephanie. Stephanie is a born royal who grew up royal and she is looking worse for wear, though i think she's cool. As far as Charlene's dress wardrobe, in my opinion she looks best in dresses that don't cover her arms and shoulders as she is much wider than the average woman.

Don't get me wrong, I hope to look half as fit/toned as Stephanie when I am 45 years old! However when I am 45, I hope to be dressing a little more age appropriate, instead of trying to look like I am 20! Charlene is 13 years younger than Stephanie and shows so much more class and style in her dressing. IMO, it seems like Stephanie needs some attention!

What a wonderful expression Tosca, I'll have to keep that in mind. Thanks.

To the poster who said the trio never attend, yes they have but not in the last couple of years. When Caroline shows up so do they. When she doesn't, they don't either.

The more I look at Stephanie's dress the more I soften toward it...it's the top part with those straps and that tacky cleavage which sinks it!

Stephanie is Stephanie. No one can EVER accuse this woman of being phony or untrue to herself.

As for Caroline's children, I always love to see them, they are so delicious. But they were at the Rose Ball and the Grand Prix...and will probably be at the Fete Nationale in November...perhaps they feel that they have done their "bit" for Uncle Albert already and don't want to interrupt their summer holidays?

Same as Princess Caroline...in addition to the Rose Ball she was also at the St Jean Feast...she and her children maybe want to cede the spotlight to Albert and his fiancee?

The wonderful thing about this family is that no matter what is going on behind the scenes, they pull it all together in public...and has anyone else noticed that there is ALWAYS someone on hand to help Albert..if not Stephanie then it's Caroline or her children. And don't forget Aunt Antoinette and the Levine cousins.

So their absence last night doesn't bother me that much.
