Caroline and Charlotte look OK, boring but not bad. Charlotte could have worn something more interesting given the r'n'r theme, but not Balmain, as someone suggested, I don't think she has the right attitude for it.
Charlene looks...as if she walked out of Marc Jacobs latest show

Pierre steals the show once again

Prince Rainier knew that he needed a family to present to investors and the world and he did that to perfection. I wonder why Prince Albert dosent get this- the family "look" should be quite diffrent by now. Caroline's children wasnt raised to represent the principality.

Is this supposed to be a compliment? I cannot think of anything tackier than that woman.

As interesting as your question is, it can't be discussed in here or else we could get shut down or have posts deleted. You might want to ask your question in the PA sub-forum.

Youngest generation looked the best this time. Charlotte was just gorgeous. Yes, she was wearing black again but I don't find her boring at all, she looked stunning. Next stunning woman was Beatrice, who is a real beauty and her dress was wonderful. Pierre was cute like always.

Caroline did not disappoint me this time. Last year Red Rose ball she was dressed for the theme but her dress was so revealing. This time her outfit is perfectly matching the theme and fortunately dos not show too much body. Caroline's jacket and especially handbag and earrings are just perfect idea: funny, eccentric and eye catching so exactly like 1980s should be.

Albert is just Albert, as a guy he did not have much choice in outfit.

Charlene looked awful. Her hair is just horrible. I know it is 1980s hairdo but it is just bad. The dress is indeed theme matching, not so bad, but Charlene looked really bad in it. It emphasized her manly body.

Albert made the same mistake about protocol like always bringing Charlene and entering with her in first row and then sitting her next to himself, so nothing new here.

I hate, hate, hate Charlene's hair. What the heck was she thinking with that?

I like Caroline's dress. It's a lot more demure than what she did last year, and I think she purposely went to the complete opposite end of the spectrum because last year's dress was so badyly recieved.

Beatrice's dress is matronly, and, to me, it looks like she borrowed it from Princess Antoinette! But I was really surprised to see her there. I guess Beatrice and Pierre are kind of serious. They've been dating now for almost a year!

I hate that Stephanie doesn't come to these.

I think the fashion winner is Melanie! I lover her gown!

OMG, it is so funny, those bracelets are champagne bottle toppers. I like it, I admire Caroline's idea, she made a lot of effort to be dressed for the theme and she did this with grace and humor.

I agree that she presents something interesting. I would not say that she resembles Victoria Beckham with this look, but I would describe her look as fashion forward. When you try something new and unpredictable, there is a big chance it will be criticized. But the courage to look for one's fashion identity is something I appreciate.

As much as Charlotte looks lovely in her gown, it is predictable. She is a beautiful girl, but there is that yawn factor, nothing in her look enhances her beauty or the importance of the event. Sure she has a gorgeous face and that it doesn't need as much adornment, but as Princess Grace demonstrated in those so missed glorious years, a ball is a production event! Especially since Monaco gets its share of attention mostly only during balls and social events.

It really is a matter of taste, but I would as a matter-of-factly say that Charlotte Casiraghi is a more beautiful woman that Charlene Wittstock. But I would predict that it is Charlene who would generate more pictures or interest in the general public as seen in published photos because she took a bigger fashion risk. Neither good nor bad, but for a small country and a "minor" royal family such as Monaco's, any kind of press is good.

Pixilated - I agree with you. Princess Caroline's gown looks plain and unfinished without the jacket and purse. I think that Charlotte's dress just does not photograph well. Probably because the dress is all black and the photographers are not that close.

Caroline looked so young in those pics. I agree that without jacket her dress was plain. Although I like Caroline's look this year, I think she should wear the belt with this white dress, the chain belt that a model wearing the same dress had during fashion show, would be a good idea.

I have to admit that I have seen these ladies look much lovelier than they did this year. I don't like the flaps/pockets on the side of Carolne's dress, her outfit looks better with the black jacket. Charlene wore a lovely dress but I have doubts about the hair, a bit of a 'hair-raisering' experience.

Here are some very nice and interesting pics of Caroline before
the ball, on March 27 and 28 pics were made during the preperations
for the event. It's great to see how much Caroline is involved in that
and it's nice to see all those people behind the scenes who prepare
such a big event like the Rose Ball.

Caroline of Monaco with Stephane Bern and Maryan Sachs at the
last-minute preparations for the 2009 rock and roll-themed Bal de
la Rose, "Rock n' Rose", to be held at the Sporting Club of Monaco :

I am not in the least impressed by the looks of either of them. Especially Caroline, who still is the most beautifull of them all, could do a lot better for herself!!! She has lost it a bit these last few years, I am sorry to say, her dress sense, that is. Or she is relying far too much on KL, I do not know of course, but her glamour is gone. This white dress is shapeless, hopeless, maybe interesting on a model, but not on an over-50-year-old -but-still-gorgeous-woman, who is made totally sexless by it.
