They have different types of diamonds. I think Charlotte earings diamonds look like a big necklace she used two years ago for the Nijinsky awards.

I liked Caroline's jacket, but not so much the sack dress underneath. Charlotte look nice, but I agree that she's much too young to be wearing so much black to formal events. Surely Mr. Lagerfeld can run up something in a color besides black and white? As for Charlene, I liked her dress and she really took a chance with her hairstyle, which is admirable. But when is Albert going to make things official between them?! At least the Royal Family always seems to have fun at the party! It doesn't seem stuffy.

I noticed a difference on her eye area which led me to presume
that a minor medical operation in order to see better sideways
could not be ruled out of question. Apart from that, it seems
that she has lost weight recently.

Caroline sure played it safe this year after last year's debacle!
I wish that Charlotte would wear some color other than black - she is young and should celebrate in younger, bright colors
Charlene made an effort - she is magnificent - her gown was gorgeous. Her hairdo reminded me of the hairdos worn by Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis in the 1980's
when she was so wild and known as Princess Gloria TNT!
At least with Charlene at his side, Albert looks more dashing. Let's face it, he has no
style or panache.
And I am glad that Charlene was not shoved into the background.
This year's event looked much more subdued than in previous years. The guests looked more high class.
But poor Princess Camilla of Bourbon Sicilies - she always looks like a kewpie doll!

Caroline organises the Rose Ball - Stephanie is a no show
Stephanie organises the Circus festival - Caroline is a no show.
It seems the principality has certain strictly separated sections without social intercourse between the sisters. Absurd considering the size of the principality and not to the best of it at all.
My personal opinion of course!

Of course, Caroline and Charlotte are going to wear Chanel as Karl Lagerfeld is so tight with the Monaco royal ladies - he was even at the Ball.
The Chanel daytime wear is impeccable - those suits! - and I wish that more royalty in other countries would wear this label. Eveningwear can be hit-or-miss -
Charlene bucks the Chanel trend and wears other designers - she has an athletic build and is not frou-frou or girly - Armani looks great on her.

I forgot to mention in my last post, that I thought they guys looked great as always.

Charlotte and Princess Caroline looked great. I didn't like the bracelets that Caroline wore or the fact that Char wore another black dress, but they still looked great.

I also thought that Beatrice & Juliette looked fantastic.

Any yes, Princess Caroline looks even better in her day-to-day wear sometimes that when she dresses up.

Thanks in advance.
Both Princess Stephanie and Princess Caroline have been often quoted as saying that they'd prefer Prince Albert to married sooner rather than later because they want to retreat from the "need" to be in the public spotlight.

I think they are trying to split the duties of the "first lady" right now in deference to their brother.

Princess Stephanie, in particular, seems to relish the private part of her life (and has since she was a child). She's said repeatedly that she hates the Princess part of her life and no doubt she dislikes attending the balls.

Many of us (me!) look up to her and would love to see more of her... But that apparently does not make her happy. Her appearance is becoming rarer at events where it is not absolutely necessary.

Link # 1 posted by agogo, shows Charlene with her hair down. Did her hair went down by itself or she went to ladies room and combed it. But she looks quite pretty in that pic.
I like the tables decoration. I have feeling that it was very well planned ball. The performing group (I'm not familiar with them) supposed to be good one, the theme was great, IMO, the whole decoration was perfectly matching. I feel the ball was much better in reality than it appears in pics.

And did Albert put his glasses aside? No.
I think the first photo by agogo is from another occasion.

I think that photo is from the 2008 Rose Ball (a much better look for Charlene IMO)
