Well, after reviewing the complete slide-show pics for this 'classy event', all I can say is that this simply was the epitamy {Inappropriate comment removed}Or 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Tasteless'.

Caroline should be told she is a 51 year old woman, not a 21 year old club girl who thinks dressing up in Halloween black coffin interior (with her post-Easter fuschia pink pursie) with her breasts shamefully on display is in any way elegant. Her hair (in close-up) was a mess.

Charlotte, whom I always professed to be 'very cute' but not gorgeous, {Inappropriate comment removed} by the Karl Lagerfeld "Vere zis black - you vill look vunderbar and sooo klassy' team, as she looked, again, like a 21 year old woman eagerly wishing middle-age would ring her Paris/London doorbell. Her lipstick was too bright, too red - too much. Did she go 'bobbing for strawberries' prior to the event? And what's with Pierre's hair, or lack of it? Is he a skin-head wannabe?

The 'travelling freak show', led by uber-neurotic Karl Lagerfeld was on fine and full display, what with the Marilyn Manson wannabes and the Euro tarts, whose make-up was, what, 3 layers deep? {Inappropriate comment removed} did anyone get a load of the 'entertainment' on stage for the evening. I felt as if it were the Eurovision Song Contest goes to Monte Carlo. By the way Karl, for a designer, you sure as heck wear the SAME get-up to each and every event. And will someone tell Herr Lagerfeld that sunglasses at night indoors is just plain ridiculous?

I will say that Charlene looked quite nice - understated yet elegant - but the proverbial adolescent Albert should finally grow up and make a decision.

I'm sorry, people, but this whole evening just reeked of utter {Inappropriate comment removed} plain and simple.

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.
That was my first reaction, that at the last minute they decided to switch dresses. I have not been able to see a good photo of Charlotte´s dress without the little coat. But they tried to disguise according to the ball theme. Charlotte all in black with the mouth red and the hairdo, like an old spanish duchess in Seville. Caroline is in that terrible age when you still do not realize what have done the claws of time. She was disguised, too, like attending a "movida madrileña". Now she must give that dress to her daughter, who should modificate it.

I'm going to venture a guess and say that dress was probably less revealing in person. Or I'm sure she would have noticed otherwise, someone would have mentioned to her the transparency of the dress beforehand I'm sure? I have a feeling it was more the effect of the flashes from the camera that acts like an X-ray? I'm sure people have seen pictures of someone wearing a dark heavy sweater that looked fine in person untill you see a photo and all you can see is a white bra underneath, that is only apparent under the flash! There are a couple pictures of Charlene at different times in a black sweater, people thought it was her breast you could see through the sweater, but it was just the white bra visable under the flash! I think that is why Carolines dress seemed more diaphanous than perhaps it really was? Live and learn! There is a close up picture of Charlotte at the table and you can see how lovely the table setting, the colors, and all the flowers actually were! I have a feeling in person the event was probably very nice, perhaps it was just not captured as well with the lighting?

I don't care for Princess Caroline's gown this year but I don't hate it either. The real problem is that her boobies sag terribly-as is natural when one is past fifty-and that dress really shows it. But her hair and makeup look great. Caroline is and always has been my style icon. The fact that she can pull off even a mess like this thing shows that she is truly timeless.

Charlotte?? She is waaaay too young to be going for the "haute" look she tries so hard to do. She is a classic beauty and would look much better in a classic ballgown. Her hair and makeup are simply flawless, stunning. And please God please don't let her be pregnant. It's hard to tell in that outfit.


Charlene blew me away. She looked beyond gorgeous, skin, makeup. Her gown is just beautiful. It's hard to believe that this is the same young woman who was hopping around a couple of years ago wearing those tacky lace up halters, hair flying all around. She takes the beauty prize this year, IMO.

I`m not sure but I think Charlottes dress is also see through. You can see her panties in this pic. Mister Lagerfeld really should get busted for this ball desaster. :)

From the dinner
Charlotte Pierre and Melanie Group Group2 (the girl with Caroline's dress is suposed to be Laura Duchemin, no idea who she's)


This group is strange. I can recognize Juliette Maillot, Eugenie Niarchos, Melanie, gaia repossi and i've seen gregoire in another photo. But the others?Who are they?Who is the girl wearing Caroline's dress?And the girl with the curly hair (at left in the first photo)? And the one next to Eugenie in the first pics on other posts?

Where is Andrea and Tatiana? And why aren't the Dellal's here?At least Alex? Lately Charlotte is always with them!?!And Cecile? Did her and Char cut their relations?
Charlotte is simply beautiful beyond belief. She is amazing to look at. Now that I take a second look at her gown, I think the jacket can be removed, and the undergown is strapless. It's not as bad as I originally thought it was!

Thank goodness she left that awful Alex dude at home. Blech.

Johnnie! I am holding my sides with laughter at this post. I can't disagree with a single word.(except tht I think Charlotte is a great beauty, not merely cute!) Charlotte and her "red lollipops"lips well I think it's the only shade of lipstick she owns. At least it appears that way because it's the only one I have ever seen her wear. The only time I saw her without it was at Prince Rainier's funeral.

I actually like Char's jacket. It's very "Tudor." I would have loved to see it with a fuller skirt. Yes, it's black and boring, but I love the shoulders on the dress. It would be cool to see the jacket paired with jeans too.

As far as everyone else, Caroline should be fined for wearing that monstrosity. It's one thing to buy couture but for goodness' sake! Less trim, less feather, less everything! Tailor the dress to suit your needs (and your age, eh hem).

Midnight blue is a lovely color on Charlene. Besides the fact that she looks old for her age, she looked nice.

You think Charlene looks old for thirty? Hmmm. I would have agreed about a year ago but either she has put herself into the hands of a great aesthetician or she has a helluva makeup team. Her skin looks flawless now, not the weather beaten freckled mess it used to be. Caroline's I-smoke-and-worshipped-the-sun-in-my-youth skin looks dramatically improved too.

Even the models and actors/actresses seem to stay away. It looks like Stephanie is a no show when Caroline is attending and the other way around - what a shame. Does anyone know whether she was at Marchais with her kids for Albert's birthday party??

The guest list gets worse every year. I think the last time they had some real star power at either the Rose or Red Cross Ball was when Rainier was still alive. Albert and Caroline better get to work VERY soon to restore the glamour and prestige that these events once had. It will probably never get back to it's 60's and 70's heydey when Grace and Rainier were around...but how many years in a row can Shirley Bassey be the headline performer???

Well, the Ball looked fun.....but, both Caroline's and Charlotte's dresses missed the mark - and, it appears that Caroline didn't have a bra underneath?! You would think Karl Lagerfeld/Chanel could have designed a dress that would show the decolage area, but have support built in?!

I didn't understand Caroline's gown this year at all. I hated her dress last year too. That silver thing made her look like the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz.

As I said before, she has just enough elegance to carry off even monstrosities like those but I sure wish she'd get back to her old classic look for evening. Maybe she is going thru some type of mid-life style crisis!
