Well if you're familiar with her Charlotte and her background then there's nothing new in the article that you don't know. But if you're not familiar with or her family then this is new. People here in the US may remember Grace Kelly as the American actress who married a prince but how many know her grandchildren. I'm sure they're familiar with Caroline, Albert and Stephanie but Charlotte and her brothers? I don't think so.

The picture with Charlotte riding and the last picture are my favorite.

What's silly is trying to make excuses or pretend to be as good in any task as someone who devotes her life to it.
Yes, absolutely. And I recognize that in spite of their money, they have began a career, which not everyone does.

I think they all do jobs anyway. We just see them only at leisure, when they are at cafes with friends, on yachts, walking dogs. They don't generally do their "job" activities in the open air so we can't see Pierre reading up on Engeco, or Andrea making a fresh pot of coffee for the deputy ambassador from Qatar (just kidding on that one! I don't actually believe that's what he does! Just making a point, and I think I've made it.)

I like your sense of humor if Andrea wasn't "the Casiraghi one" ,he would DO THE COFFE for sure

True enough. It's a bit like that interview Caroline gave when she was younger - if she wanted to get rid of the paparazzi all she had to do was walk into a book store. And it's like I said on the other thread - the "in-between" stuff isn't interesting to the media.
I like the thought of Andrea making coffee though!

I'm sure this has been discussed somewhere but if someone knows please what brand of riding boots Charlotte favours or wears mostly? I know Faglioni boots are what a lot of professional riders wear.

Wow, she's so beautiful in that pic! Long time I hadn't seen her looking so stunning. Blue is her colour.

Faglioni? It's the first time I hear the name.
Most intensive riders (amateur and profesional both) wear handmade, made-to-measure boots, often by small artisans, not necessarelly by big popular brands.

In any case, I'm 99'9% sure Charlotte's boots are made by Gucci.

Pardon me, I misspelled the name, and they're actually boots for polo riders titled Fagliano. You can see them here if you wish.
Welcome to the Polo Splice Web Site

Sorry if this is Off-Topic.

Thank you trepstep for your reply, I figured Charlotte probably had her boots custom-made (if you can afford it, I agree with this) and to know they're Gucci...well I long for a pair!

Hi, I didn't knew Fagliano either, but from what I see in their web the specialise in Polo, and truth is I don't know anything about that sport, that's probably why I never hear of them before :-)

Anyway, those boots look awfully expensive not to be custom made! I wonder who buys them? For that price you can have a specialized artisan make your boots specially for you.

He probably gets them for free for wearing/endorsing them at polo matches, but Prince Harry wears Fagliano boots.
I think they're absolutely lovely. I will look into having some boots custom-made for me, that would be .

Charlotte is a very stunning lady. I think she looks more beautiful in the random pictures that the paparazzi snaps of her than the posed pictures that Testino took of her for US Vogue.
Yeah, she does! You're right. In the Vogue pictures, she doesn't look like herself at all. She looks like a wax figure of herself.

There is no doubt in mind that since she signed on with Gucci, her boots are Gucci. Everything from head to foot is designed and customized for Charlotte, by Frida Giannini for Gucci: shirts, jackets, vests, jodhpurs, boots. And her belts too. I guess the helmet also...

I posted this here but as my post was moved, it doesn't make much sense. The boots are definitely Gucci. Charlotte has a special collection designed just for her. The caption in Vogue said, "In Gucci Special Collection for Charlotte Casiraghi and Gucci customized boots."

^Yah, I saw that I think. Thanks, Thecia. It's a pretty neat trick of Charlotte's, don't ya think, having Frida design these things one-only things for her and then Gucci calls it the Special Collection for, and only for Charlotte Casiraghi, so don't even bother going to harrass the salespeople at Barneys or going on the Gucci website to find it! I mean, if you shop at Barneys even.... like I do, yeah, right, OK!

Hello there.
This is a brazilian video (in portuguese) about the International Jumping in Rio. Among the interviews, many local brazilian actors and some riches. Andrea Dellal gives an interview, and we can see Charlotte at 7:33, unaffortunately only for a few seconds. :(
