As for the whole inane "shoulder debate" some of you need to get off it. It's old. Boring. And makes those who obsess over it seem petty, trite, and downright insecure about themselves. As a result, they pick on another for "fun."

I agree with this completely!!! I actually applaud Charlene for being courageous enough to go for a very simple look -- a chic hairstyle, subdued make-up, and a gorgeous and tasteful gown. Earrings or a necklace may have enhanced the look, but I'd rather see her simply put than inappropriately overdone or looking like she's trying too hard.

And as for her shoulders, give her credit -- she's an athlete, her shoulders developed out of years of training for her sport. For those critical of her wearing shoulder-bearing dresses, well, what would you suggest? It's just so weird that Stephanie, who has very broad and athletic shoulders herself, does not get this much criticism if she wears halters or strapless dresses. And Charlene actually looks more proportionate than Steph because she is taller and therefore balances her shoulders.

Stephanie really has the same athletic shoulders as Charlene. I think Charlene looks like the people of the Kelly-Clan. She is blond, big and athletic. Maybe it`s one of the reasons why Albert is attracted to her.

I like her dress, but I think it was inappropriate for the theme of the ball. And she should have worn some jewellery. She looked out of place because she didn`t match with the other guests.

Does she really get money from Albert? I´ve never heard this before.

Baron Jean-Léonard Taubert-Natta de Massy

I noticed in a group photo it is mentioned that Baron Jean-Léonard Taubert-Natta de Massy is next to Melanie.
First time that I have seen him noted. He is Albert's godson and Melanie's half brother.

Caroline looked like a drag queen (no disrepect meant to drag queens) in one of Almadovars movies. If I went to pick up a date for an event like the Rose Ball and found her dressed like that I would have gone stag. It was grotesque, especially on a woman of a certain age. The original version was only marginally better. She will certainly appear on several worst dressed lists at year end.

Unfortunately Rosana that isn't a coat that is the dress. I too am overwhelmingly dissapointed. I agree that I don't understand at all why it seems that Caroline and Charlotte wear whatever Karl gives them and only that. It takes away from their personal styles and just makes me more irritated at Karl. He just seems so arrogant and shallow...I adore many things from Chanel, but he is not one of them.

On the other hand, Charlotte's makeup is great. Does anyone have a picture of the back of her head. I would really like to see her hair.

Thanks for the pics and the information, i thought it was a coat. I don´t understand that Morticia look on a 21 year old girl. And this is the first time i don´t like Caroline´s dress.

In the Gallery of pictures above there is one of Charlotte whispering in Caroline's ear, I can just read the caption: "Mom, you're b**bs are showing"! referring to Caroline's flimsy top of her dress.

Your right Princess mahala I saw those pics where you can see her back. my mistake then, but how peculiar that she didn't take her little coat off for the pictures. I'm sure the dress is probably much more beautiful without that odd jacket.

It's like Caroline and Charlotte switched dresses! Each of their dresses would have been better suited on the other person. And Caroline looks like she isn't wearing any "supporting" undergarments underneath hers, which is a shame she needs it. But then again it would've pushed her bosom up into the see-thru part of the dress.

PHOTOS : le Bal de la Rose version Almodovar, c'était olé olé !


" Le traditionnel Bal de la Rose s'est tenu hier soir, à Monaco. Comme nous vous en avions déjà informé il y a quelques jours, Pedro Almodovar et la chanteuse déjantée Alaska sont venus donner un air de Movida à cette soirée qu'ils ont pour le moins "décoincée".
Un décor coloré et décalé, des drag queens, Stéphane Bern arborant un boa rouge, un concert de Luz Casal, un tour de chant improbable de l'actrice Rossy de Palma et du réalisateur espagnol, un miniballet de la chorégraphe Blanca Li... C'était la folie sur le Rocher !
Parmi les inconditionnels présents aux côtés du prince Albert et de la princesse Caroline, de son mari le prince de Hanovre et de Charlene Wittstock, on retrouvait notamment Karl Lagerfeld, Betty Lagardère, Christian Louboutin, Victoria Silvstedt et Shirley Bassey.
A noter, l'absence de la pincesse Stéphanie...
Retrouvez toutes les photos de cet soirée caritative à laquelle la présence requiert, en général, une participation estimée aux alentours de 750 euros par personne."

In english (euh ...)

Sorry to say this but it must be the worst outfits Caroline and Charlotte have worn to a Rose Ball. Caroline's bag was the best piece of the outfit. Charlotte' s outfit reminded me of Nanny MacPhee's outfit all that was missing was the hat. Charlene, stunning.
