I really rather love Alexandra's dress but paired with her fresh scrubbed very young looking face and casual pulled back ponytail it just didn't work.

I thought all ladies looked charming. It was one of the best balls -fashionwise- of the latest years.

I agree, very nice outfits, very happy persons !
The absence of Prince Albert was very obvious, though. It seems Rose Ball is a Casiraghi-Hanover object and not the whole princely family, although the event's benefits are for the Princess Grace Foundation.

It is THE Casiraghi-Hannover and Karl Lagersfeld's Event. I wonder how much the guests had to pay ?

It was so cool to see Afra Casiraghi Marchetti at the ball. And Charlotte and Dimitri of course. I suppose it was Dimitri's first ball? (I mean, I know his mother attended in the past, so maybe he attended a long time ago? But I'm sure if that was the case, someone would have found that photo evidence by now.)

In terms of a sense of overall happiness and excitement this was the most successful Rose Ball in years, imo.

Paris Match online has some fantastic photos.

Yes tatianacressida...this was Dimitri's Rose Ball debut. At last year's Ball the rumours about his relationship with Charlotte had just begun circulate and really picked up steam when Charlotte wore a gown that Caroline had worn while co hosting an event with Dimitri's mother.

I think Stéphanie's kids never attended Rose Ball. I doubt if they even attended Red Cross Ball. They only attend the Monte Carlo Circus festival.

They haven't and Stephanie hasn't attended since her father's death.

Who is Afra Casiraghi Marchetti? Is she in any pic?

She is Stefano's niece, daughter of his older brother Marco. She's the one in the silver and black striped dress in the group shot with Charlotte and Pierre and friends.

I stand corrected!

I thought one ticket costs € 800. And there is room for 1000 guests. So the first revenue is € 800 000 but then comes the costs...

Le Bal de la Rose a lieu chaque printemps, il est une ressource financière capitale pour la fondation (€ 266 000), ainsi que les donations (€ 214 730).

Meaning: € 800 000 - € 266 000 = € 534 000 for the costs of one evening with Monsieur Karl!



That is why I hate this sort of fundraisers. Just donate 800 Euro of your wealth, folks.... Then the Fondation Princesse Grace would have had € 534 000 more to donate!

Yes, but you miss one important point. That most of these people who paid 800 euros, 1600 for couple, they wanted to dress their best outfits and jewellery and to appear in one high profile event with the Monaco Princely family. As a side effect part of their money goes to a good action, but the main goal of spending this money is NOT philanthropy, is vanity and social appearance.

Absolutely true. Most of these folks are so awesomely rich. The ticket of € 800 is possibly the cheapest part of the evening, as they need a new dress for madame, a new suit for monsieur, jewels, shoes, hairdresser, the chauffeur.

They could simply donate € 800 to the Fondation Princesse Grace while just relaxing on their mega-yacht in the Méditerannée.

€ 534 000 of € 800 000 = 2/3rd of all revenue goes to the costs for a fancy ball...

Are the Casiraghi for you a princely family ?
I totally agree your posts.
