The theme for the Rose Ball 2010 next month has been announced!

It will be "Morocco Rose Ball" a ball dedicated to the wonderful
country of Morocco! As every year Princess Caroline has chosen the
theme and has asked her friend the decorator Jacques Grange to
create the decoration for the Salle des Etoiles.

Oriental roses, vases specially produced in Morocco, colours insprired
by Matisse and other surprising elements will create an oriental atmosphere.

Here's the official announcement in French:

** Bal de la Rose **

Henri Matisse is one of France's most influential painters, and Princess Caroline applied her usual flair and panache in choosing his work for the Rose Ball.

His work is inspired by, first, a visit to Moorish Spain, and later to Morocco itself.

I have to admit I'm awaiting Caroline's dress with trepidation - the last couple of years' couture have been a bit disappointing - especially compared with Caroline's accustomed good taste - or does she use the Rose Ball to show another side of her?

I think that's possible, in view of the current joint Morocco-Monaco building projects!
PA was over there last November for a visit, to lay the first stone for the "Jawhar Hotel Spa et Residences", worth 100 million euro.

What is the possibility that Stephanie might attend? I know it has been a few years since she was at the Rose Ball, but perhaps she might as a sign of support for her sister in what seems to have been a pretty horrid 12 monthsfor Caroline Realistically I guess there isn't much chance.. but you never know.

Here's some really tiny pics from Wireimages:

Caroline's hair looks... short? Her dress reminds me of that other she wore a while back. I like it though. It suits her.
