Rose Ball - March 23rd, 2013

* *

This is the thread dedicated to the Rose Ball 2013.

It will take place on Saturday, March 23, 2013 at 8 pm.


On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Société des Bains de Mer Princess Caroline has asked designer Karl Lagerfeld to conceptualise the "Bal de la Rose du Rocher".

Karl Lagerfeld decided to play with the strong contrast between a classical ball in the style of the "Belle Epoque" around 1900 and a conclusion of the evening in a pop aesthetic.


* *


The thread will be opened when the event approaches,
in the meantime take a look at the previous threads, with pics and information about the Rose Ball
in 2012, 2011, 2010 or at the special thread A Retrospective: Rose Ball - Monaco.

Woh, what a good start... loving Charlotte's hair & makeup, and the gown is beautiful.I didn't think Gad would be so prominent in the arrivals. I think it's the first time they have appeared together at an official event.

Charlotte's beaux of some months now and in his other guise, a French comic actor.
Just caught pics of Caroline and Charlene, and I'm afraid it's downhill imo. Although Charlene is obviously responding to the theme (which I like), I really don' t like the outfit. Caroline is wearing mainly black and it's rather boring at a first glimpse.

I gathered he was her boyfriend. But where is he from, what does he do, if anything?

I don't think the outfit improves without the jacket either.

Definitely one of Charlene's worst looks ever.
It borders on the ridiculous.

You're right, that's terrible. One thing I am not a fan of either is her hair style...I preferred it a bit longer.

Gad looks a bit like a young version of Andy Williams

What is the theme of the ball?

Charlene looks very odd, nothing fits with another: hair, make up, outfit...

It is a special year celebrating 150 years. Karl Lagerfeld is in charge this year According to the website "He will mix music and imagery from the “golden age” in France with the latest in rap, hip-hop and soul." Probably why Charlene has embraced so many styles.
