Well I can't contribute to the discussion of the papz at all, since I live in the great white north and there are close to none up here!

Having said that, Charlotte looks 'off' in some pictures. Yes it's most probably due to the fact that she is shy, discreet (as some of you put it) and obviously has a dislike towards people taking her photograph. BUT in the odd times where she does make an appearance, then she should at least attempt to not show such disgust. You know pose for several pictures, have the hair out of the way, (smiling is optional) and when done walk away.

I'm sure she has had people offering her guidance in how to deal with the attention. Even though it seems that she is annoyed or surprised by it. Which is odd because attention towards her would only increase as she gets older and people are curious to see her as her own identity and not just as the daughter of princess Caroline.

She covered her face...seems likw the journalist too doesnt like to be harrased.. We expected her to get use to the attention, she was being photographed since the beginning, be a cover girl for few magazines, but she looks shy, nervous infront of camera...I'm sure she just like a normal person who amuse with the attention but dont no how to react especially when she's alone and without her family.

Luckily she wears black tight inside....

She is a younger 21 than her mother's 21. Charlotte reminds me so much of young Stephanie sometimes. I know I've said that before but it strikes me again so strongly. I'm impressed also by the comparatively low-key presence of Charlotte and her friends at the event (no poses with Karl). One wonders if we should expect a certain intern to write about it for the 'Sindy'. But she was not wearing a press pass....

Iím not sure that, that would be such a great thing to be honest. I actually thought that Charlotte appeared rather young in those pictures. When compared to Watson (who is only 17) she appeared to lack poise and self possession. But then Charlotte is very young, and she hasnít chosen to be a public person. She is also smack in the middle of the all partying, very little sleep stage of life.

Thanks for the nice pics and the video Casiraghitrio!
I do agree Charlotte looks younger than her mother at the same age.

It's great that she was attending the Chanel event as a friend and patron, instead of for the paper (sans press pass). As I mentioned before, hopefully they will not press her for inside scoop on the lives of people she's grown up with, or her parent's friends - that would be a shame if they were simply using her.

In fashion, everyone uses everyone for publicity. Sindy knows the power of Charlotte, and Charlotte knows the power of Sindy, and the power of Chanel, and vice versa. They all help each other. That's how life works, actually, not just in the fashion business, where it's just more apparent.

I agree too, in the 70s'(and 80s' too) young girls tried to look older with their clothes, I remember that, I am 8 years younger than Caroline...today it seems to be opposite; everybody is trying to look younger, it is the society costume, I guess...

I do think though that it's not just the clothes and makeup. Caroline was so poised from such a young age, she seemed essentially an adult from her mid teens on. Put her next to 35-year-old Philippe Junot when she was 21, and they didn't look that shockingly inappropriate as to age. The same would not be true of Charlotte - he would definitely come off looking a lot more like a cradle robber!

Well, let's not forget - the makeup and style of the 1970s & 1980s was much more severe (thinly plucked eyebrows in the 70s made anyone look older; overdone make up of the 80s also aged people). Now, the make up is lighter and meant more as an accent of various features, less to create an obvious look (again, heavily made up eyes of the 80s), so Charlotte looks age-appropriate in her make up for events. She wears her hair in a more natural way, which helps to show her true age (not teased and overprocessed) - at the time, the look of the 70s and during the 80s was the norm, so Caroline looked great (then), too - to look at her now, and compare is humerous, because she always looks great....even when she looked overdone!

It would be a good point, horseygal, if talking about someone other than Charlotte perhaps.

I agree with selket, though, because with Charlotte it goes beyond makeup. It's her essence, very youthful and schoolgirl I guess, and just different from her mother's more diva essence. I am not using good words to explain what I mean. Caroline was like a sex kitten. Charlotte is like..... maybe "ingenue" (sp?) is the word for Charlotte.

On that vein, I never understand Karl Lagerfeld comparing Charlotte to Bardot......

Well she has the same mouth as Brigitte Bardot, and the same exquisite French Pout of some French girls. I believe he called Charlotte a cross between Bardot & Brooke Shields. Sienna Miller I think looks like Bardot (sans Bardot's exquisite mouth). I saw Bardot on a cover of a book recently, and for a moment I went, oh look there's Sienna Miller.I think Langerfield may have had a point though, if you superimposed both their faces you may get someone who looks like Charlotte. I do wonder how Charlotte is finding socialising in London, because I found the partying atmosphere in Paris (in my teens), very different to the one in London. Then again she obviously runs in exceedingly different circles to me. However, I wonder if she has been mildly shocked by the huge emphasis placed on drink in London; I never found that to be the case in Paris.

^ What's the party atmosphere like in Paris? Is it more of a drug scene (if so, then I'll be sure to stay away from the clubs of Paris now that I am of age)?

yes you should stay away from clubs if you know about the drug scene, rows and such..but it can't be all clubs are bad...even in my place there are lots of clubs that are safe enough for girls (and boys!) coming of age to go there and have fun..and there are several clubs that are bad enough that i wouldn't dream to walk on its street alone..

I am not sure if I'm the one to answer that, me, and my friends at the time, were/are uninterested in drugs, and I never saw class - A drugs in Paris. In general a lot of the clubs (and there was a huge diversity in clubs, something to suit all tastes) were open all night, most clubs aren’t in London, people drank a lot less alcohol than they do in London, were a lot more openly amorous in clubs (then again I have spent most of my life in England/Ireland, so really what am I comparing it to). I don’t know about Paris, but the pills and cocaine scene in London is rampant.

I think she must be shocked! The wonderful thing about Parisian drinking is that they savor and enjoy alcohol (and food for that matter) as it should be savored. But in most other places, I presume from your posts in London and I can say certainly here in the US in many cities, there is a tendency to abuse alcohol. I never knew a French person who abused it. But most Americans I know abuse it. And if the likes of Prince Harry of Wales is any example of his fellow London club-goers, then the London scene sees lots of abuse too.

Now I don't know about the drugs, that is other than alcohol. Because I never have exposed myself to any kind of "drug scene" anywhere. So I don't know what it is like in Paris versus London. I am not a club person at all. I have been to clubs on rare occasions, but I keep it to a minimum because the club scene in general is distasteful to me.
