Love it, love it, love it, ALL of them
I love Caro's dress, sometimes it looks not so flattering in pictures but I believe when we are actually there ( I wish to ) it must be beautiful.
Charlotte finally looks mature and elegant, georgeous... she is trully Grace
Charlene is beautiful, I get used to her type of dress (one shoulder) and I think it suit her perfectly and her broad shoulder hmm .... I think its sexy
I dont know about Beatrice dress, but I'm just dont get it, the color, motif, earings, hair too "bling-bling" she looks pretty though
Finally, my favourite in this party is ANDREA, the present Andrea remind me of young Andrea (1992/1993???) with short hair, handsome, glad he choose to get his hair cut coz he got this "serious" look
Overall, I love this year Ross Ball
Hopefully in next couple years, we'll see Louis & Pauline as well
Then Alexandra & Camille.... OMG time flies to fast
Greetings!!!

Caroline looks stunning this year, lovely colours in her dress and she wore the same earrings she wore to the 1997 Rose Ball

Princess Caroline's handbag

Has anyone noticed this yet? I was wondering why Princess Caroline chose a red handbag for the rose ball. In keeping with the Moroccan theme, she chose a bag that looked like a FEZ! A Fez is a traditional red felt hat that was popular during the Ottoman empire. Zimbio photo number 180 clearly shows that Princess Caroline's purse is a upside down Fez.

Haha, I didn't even notice that agogo. I guess I shouldn't be surprised - last year she used a motorcycle helmet. Caroline seems to have this way of just making everything tie into the theme without it being obvious. I've no idea how she does it but she does. I'm slowly warming towards her dress as well. The more I see of it, the more I like it.

The best during this year ball: inviting Lalla Joumana. I don't know this royal , but it is so great to see some royal at the ball. I don't recall any royal people at Rose Ball.
Awesome to see all Casiraghi siblings. Tatiana and Andrea seem almost attached recently. I mean they are together everywhere, maybe wedding soon?
Charlotte looked wonderful, dress nice.I saw this dress on some fashion model, and Charlotte looks much better in it But the best dressed was Beatrice. Everything she was wearing was perfect: dress, shoes, her hairdo. BTW, did she make her hair dark? Melanie disappointed me this year. She usually dress nicely, but this time her black dress does not flatter her and her hair seemed a mess.
Caroline looked lovely, her dress was matching the occasion, the same her colorful jewelery. I like her short hair. On the other hand she could be more regal. She looked really nice, but I know she could do better.
I was really hoping that Albert will not bring Charlene this year. It was always against protocol to bring the woman who is not even a fiance to official occasion. But this time, when they invited Moroccan royal, it is even worse.
Charlene dress was overall was nice, the same her jewelery. But it was not dress for her, she lacks feminine body, so she looked bad in it. The dress was too revealing. Summing up, Charlene did not look good, and the dress was wearing her.

The ladies look stunning don't they?! They have all gone for something a little different this year, it seems. LOVE Charlotte's outfit, she has matured in the face and looks stunning!

I really like Tatiana's look.
Caroline looks radiant.
Charlotte looks great in the light colors, but I don't like her hair.

I love Charlotte's look, understated glam through and through.

Andrea's looking good, love that his tux fits him well, which isn't often. Anyone solved the mystery of his shoes? Doesnt he wear those everytime he attends the ball?

Beatrice was dead on perfect!!!!! she was the " belle"
Caroline looked very nice
Charolette to me the dress didnt suit her- a nice dresss over all
Charlene dress very sexy too sexy if you are escorting a head of state to a official function especially when there was visiting royalty. In my opionion she was trying too hard... An escort to a reigning prince should be demure especially if u are a princess consort applicant. Why do Charlene walk in with the prince and his heir????????
Melanie need some fashion help

The Morrocan princess probably didnt see so much skin in her entire life I loved her gown as well

I liked Charlene's look the best. Charlotte's dress while unflattering would have looked much better had the straps been made from the same fabric or a different color they aren't working together. The same applies for Caroline's dress, while I like the style the color of the straps distracts from the over all look.

Charlene, Charlotte, Tatiana, they all looked more self confident this year.
Beatrice's dress must have been purchased in Morocco, since her maternal grand mother countess Marta Marzotto spends a great part of the year in Marrakesh, where she owns a palace. However it looks great on her.
I do not like Caroline's dress instead: it makes her look old.
I didn't expect to see Simona Ventura at the ball. Perhaps after getting Ivana Trump to go to the "island" (sort of a "Survivor" with celebrities), she will manage to get Charlene over there too...

I like all the gowns, but in my opinion, the best lady at this ball is Beatrice Borromeo. She looks really gorgeous and her dress is stunning and very apropiate to the Morocco subject !!

This is what I meant about Charlene's dress, way too sexy. It is not a dress one wears at so official ball. She should know this already. But what is the worst, she was here. She has no official status, so she even should not be at the ball.
BTW, Charlene make up was very bad, it looked so artificial. Her hair was bad too, it looked greasy.

-Caroline is wonderful: incredibly nice and colourful happy dress, well chosen earings, make upo, hair do!. Love her.

-Beatrice is absolute perfection. You need a body like hers to pull of such a dress and she is absolutely amazing. And she is so pretty and elegant. Stunning.

-Charlotte is blah. It's not an ugly dress, just the same boring baggy Chanel dress we've seen on her like a zillion times. She doesn't seem to be able to find a middle ground between sexy and boring/prudish. Learn something from Beatrice, girl! Yo can be elegant withouth needing to hide inside a white/cream or black Chanel baggy thing.

-Tatiana is the same as always. Looks as if she's wearing something she found in the flea market. It's too obvious and boring.

-Charlene looks vulgar, imo. Like a second rate hollywood starlette with very tacky taste.

And the BIG question:
why does it look as if Charlene and Charlotte had gone shopping together and got hold of the same piece of fabric and had both their dresses made out of it?

Beatrice had the right look for the event. So did Caroline. I love the earrings and the glowing smile.

The Casiraghi boy handsome. I'm glad Andrea finally chopped off that long stringy hair he was wearing for a while. It also looks like he put on some weight, which is good. He no longer looks emaciated.

Charlotte: beautiful face as always but I'm not sure about the dress.

Charlene: she looked good but the "look' is what I typically see on Nancy O'Dell of Access Hollywood. She hasn't nailed that refined, elegant look just yet. BTW, if you look down on page 3 towards the bottom, Charlene has this big smile. Is it just me or does it look like she had her pearly whites rebonded?

My opinion about the 2010 outfits : Beatrice has chosen a really appropriate gown for the event . The ethnic pattern is a wise move for a ball inspired in Morocco.

I don´t like Charlotte´s dress but her shoes are "spectacular".

Charlene : Correct , the dress is nice but ...one can see her effort to "seem elegant" and that is not enough if you want to succeed such an icon as Princess Grace of Monaco.

Caroline : Correct ,too many colours imho. And I´m afraid I see sadness in her eyes.
