In exemple last year in Lagerfeld exhibition, Charlotte showed up with all her family & Eugenie, but this year, in Didier Ludot coctail, which is the only socail party she appreared, she was alone with Felix.

Do you think that it has something to dor with Felix(they are always ONLY the two), or with her studies??? OR it is just a simple coincidence???
If you look at some of the photos posted of the Didier Ludot cocktail party in the previous thread, you can see Eugenie in between Felix and Charlotte, in the background. She was also in photos with Charlotte this summer.

Yes, and his mother is a famous art collector. Charlotte found a good "acceptable" boyfriend. Remember at her age, her mother had Junot, I'm not sure that princess Grace jumped from hapiness...... If you look at their faces at Caroline's wedding, they look quite sad...... The story proved that they were right...

Sorry to ask again, but nobody answered my questions. Does anybody here know where Charlotte met Felix? Is Felix a student too and if so what does he study? Do you think he is as brilliant as Charlotte? She must be really intelligent and disciplined to get such a great bac mark.

Apparently they are family friends, but I don't think anyone knows for sure where or how they met.

BTW, I've read that Felix' mother is a manager of a high profile firm...

Hi
You may be right, my source was Point de Vue, this summer's article. Apparently Mrs Winkler is very well known in these Art cercles. Nevetheless, being Art collector does not empeach you to be also Manager. In any case, Point de Vue pointed out that Charlotte & Felix have really the same friends-social environment, and the same cultural orientations. Do not forget that Caroline a a lot of friends among the fashion and antic & collectables world, Karl Lagerfeld, and also this famous (I forgot the exact name, Jean.... Grange) well known architect - antiquair. So it's normal to know Felix' mother.
Ciao

Thank you for responding to my questions. Didn`t they start to date about one year ago, around the time Charlotte began with classe preparatoire? Maybe they are in the same school.

You're right Lea. :)
By the way, I think Felix was also on that famous Chanel party organised by K. Lagerfeld, but in a "shy" way, being away from photographers:p since they were "fresh" couple..but have to found that photo where I think is Felix behind Charlotte.

Yes, I have noticed that, too. It is definitely Felix behind Charlotte. Nobody knows how long they have been dating, but they were holidaying together in Italy in the summer of 2004.:)

I wanted to comment on Charlotte's friends, but forgot to do that in my last post... The last time Char has been photographed with Valentine was in October 2004 when she went riding in Fontainebleau. For a long time, my opinion has been that Char and Val were never really that good friends. (This is really only my opinion, or rather the impression that I have gotten based on the pics we've seen. I know that there are people who disagree with me on this, and I respect their opinion.)

How come I think they weren't good friends? Well, I have never seen pics of them, say, together out in the town. I have never seen pics of them shopping, sitting at a café, walking on the streets chatting... I have only seen photos of them together at equestrian events, which has led me to believe that they were on reasonably good terms, but were never willing to socialize on their free time. In the photos I have seen of them together, Charlotte doesn't really seem that interested in talking with Val. There are photos where I think she seems to be downright miserable in her company (imho), such as the GP d'Amerique photos from 2004.

The people that I think are Char's true friends are Eugenie, the blond curly-haired girl and one of the Maillot girls (not Juliette, but the other one). The blond girl must be an old, trustworthy friend of hers, because there are photos of the two of them walking together in Paris, with Char's arm thrown on the girl's shoulders. I don't know what it is with Juliette, by the way. Even though Char kisses her on the cheek in the birthday photos, I get the feeling they are not that close...

in reply to Miau's comments

Finland rocks! One of the characters in my book is from Turku.

But about Charlotte's social circle........... What you say about Valentine makes a lot of sense. I also sensed something from the Grand Prix d'Amerique 2004 pics. I wondered if Char was upset by Val's very friendly behavior to Pierre.

So you think the girl in the pic with Char's arm around her is Eugenie Niarchos, then? Or is this another Eugenie? I'll have to see that pic again, as I don't remember thinking it was the Niarchos heiress. I think the Niarchos heiress is most certainly a true and longtime friend of Charlotte.

When you say "the other Maillot," I think you mean Marie-Christine? It seems like she and Charlotte have reconnected. Maybe they are both studying at Lycee Fenelon. I always assumed the Maillots grew up in Monaco and went to school in Monaco, but I think it's possible MC is in Paris now for her further education, and this close proximity to Char has brought about a reunion of old friends. Wasn't MC the girl Char had her arm around in the St Remy 1999? (1998?) pics?

I think Juliette must be someone Char likes and has known for ages, but her sister must be Char's friend, and they have a relationship akin to "my sister's friend," and "my friend's sister".

Here's the photo..Felix on left behind Charlotte..You're right, Miau, they were last summer together in Italy..But is definately that is one year they're together or close to that time..


(fotobank)

As for her passing/not passing exam, we can only wish her all the best. She is very intelligent girl, demanding on herself (which was already said in this forum, connected with her grandmother's words), and probably aware of percentage of people-students who pass that exam..There's no doubt she'll give best of herself to pass (as other students do too), and we can't do anything else then just wait and see.. And wish all the best not only toCharlotte, to all students which will be in same situation! :)

Yeah, that does look like Felix, Ianna. If it is, they were so discreet. He was surely her "date" but she arrived alone, knowing pictures would be taken. No one photographed her leaving, so perhaps and Felix beat a retreat via a more private exit (on a side street or behind the building). It would be fun to imagine they had a little "date" after giving a polite appearance at the party. Maybe they went alone for a sandwich at a cafe and a chat to get to know each other. :)

It could be ...After they "fooled" photographers and made them reporting she was there only with Mom, brothers, close friends, they definately deserved a cafe or sandwich:p :)

In your book? You're writing a book? Now that's interesting! Turku is definitely a great place, full of beautiful architectural specimens and a smell of history lingering about... It was once the capital of Finland, you see, and the first city ever to have a university in Finland. I was supposed to move there at one point in my life, but sadly, fate decided otherwise. Not that I am complaining, I have a house of my own these days. :)

No, no, I expressed myself pretty badly there. Eugenie and the girl with the curly blond hair are two different people. Only that I can't remember - to the death of me - the name of the blond girl. I've head it a couple of times, but I can't dig it up from the vast reservoirs of my memory.

I don't know if the girls' names have ever been confirmed. So, you think that the dark one is Marie-Christine Maillot (the one who was once mistakenly called Melle) and the slightly fairer one (in the plunging dark dress in the pictures from the party organized in her father's honor and the "birthday girl") is Juliette?

About a week ago there was a post here that had a link to a forum similar to this one that was devoted specifically to Charlotte's fashion. Does anyone have that link? I love her fashion style and would be interested in information about where to buy some of the items she wears.

But what I don't understand is if he was her date, why didn't she meet him in the lobby? There are pictures of Char standing in the lobby of Hotel Pozzo di Borgo, still with her jacket on, and her friends in the background leaving their clothes and bags before entering the party. Felix is nowhere to be seen. And suddenly, he's standing behind her in one of the pics.

It's very hard to imagine that two people in love could keep their eyes (and hands ) off each other and keep apart for the entire party. Char was even seated next to prince von Thurn und Taxis (?) and seemed to have fun with him - not Felix. In the table photos there's no sign of Felix, either. That is, of course, IF they were in love. You're right, even if they had holidayed together they could have still been just friends at the time. Someone said that they moved in the same circles, so maybe they just happened to bump into each other at the Lagerfeld party and got even more interested in each other there. Maybe they got chatting and realized they had a lot of things in common. But wait, how come they didn't realize that already in that secluded house they were renting during their holidays? How come the first thing we ever know about the guy is that they went on holiday together? Then there's a long pause in their relationship, and Felix basically only reappears in the beginning of 2005???

Hi
Point de Vue said that Felix was alreay with her in her birthday party and they visited Tuscany together. Maybe in Lagerfeld party, they really wanted to keep the secret and they did not approach during the party, to keep the secret. Charlotte very often appears in photos laughing and talking with male friends, so if Felix did not approach her during the party it was really on purpose....
I saw some photos of them in Paris walking and kissing in the street, it should be on the "deep winter", may be in Jan-Feb..
They kept the secret from the paparazzi, until their story became serious and nice.
Good luck to them
Christine :)

I've mentioned thefashionspot.com, some days ago, maybe you mean that. In the "star style" part there's a thread abou Charlotte, +one about Pierre and one that compares Andrea with Prince william. But this board is not only about them, there's soo much stuff, I love it.
