Well that is pretty much what she is. No offense to her, or anyone in that position, but she is a wealthy girl from a wealthy family who haven't had to earn their keep.

It might have been scrapped.
She is only 24 and even if she doesn't do a paid job in her life if she chooses one or even a few charities to dedicate herself to. I'll be very impressed.

She is very Grace. Sometimes Caroline occasionally Stefano but lately all I see is Grace.

She looks awesome though. She could've picked better shoes though.

Oh I was sure it was Valli's, maybe just not from that collection then or I could be mistaken then. Sorry

So serious in the first pic!
It's like she has lost that something that used to make her special in her teens. Now she is a very very pretty young lady, but before she was gorgeous.

Good point, Ct. I', not so sure she'll find that thing that she'll be fully happy with. She's not the headstrong girl, and everyone already had classified her as a 'mommy's girl', 'superbwhole package'. She's like a trophy for a guy. She craves the attention, she was lucky her mom is Caroline. She provided her with a proper attention, so she doesn't have self-esteem problems, but to me she seems a little insecure, especially when she's around cheery, relaxed people. Then, she's the's giving off that 'geez, i'm so annoyed with this whole thing' attitude. I think it's her way to make up for the lack of real strenght of character.

Yes. i agree with you. She had something special in those years. I liked her till 2006. In 2007 and now she has changed a lot.
Though, she is still very nice!

Lets get back on topic.

The purpose of this thread isn't to analyze Charlotte's personality, her character or whether or not she has any issues. Unless someone has read a psychology profile on Charlotte or has actually met her to come up with these impressions, everything else is pretty much speculative.

Future and all posts that don't relate to Charlotte's Current Events will be deleted without notice.

Exageratedly photoshopped pic. I don't like it at all. That's not Charlotte's face.

Beautiful pictures, but she sort of lacks of " sparkle" if you know what I mean.

Agreed. They made-up and air-brushed the life (and real body) out of her, she looks like a mannequin. But what else could we expect from VOGUE?

Actually they made her look worse than a real life mannequin! The computer face is bad enough, but in the pic where she is standing by the horse her head is bigger than her torso and her shoulders wider than her hips. So scary!

Testino is not even that great of a photographer. More a fan of Mikael Jansson, Mert & Marcus and Inez & Vinoodh. Testino makes pretty and boring portraits. That's all.

^ Testino's more known for being the man about town, he's been in the business for a long time and knows pretty much everyone. He likes to shoot big time, elitey people.

So, if the close-up with the "biggest fake eyes a living human being ever had" is stupid and the pic byTintero with the "hand bigger than waist, american footballer shoulders and cutted off flesh from hip" is downright laughable, what do you people think of that one:

http://i36.tinypic.com/jv5cag.jpg

Look at the nose, please! They've gifted her with Giorgio Armani's surgical nose.

I know!!! The pictures in Vogue were awful. They made her look like .... not herself at all. She was, like you say perfectly, a mannequin, a caricature of her real self.

It's true, Empress, that Mario Testino is not *that* great. I mean, sometimes he is great. Like his photos of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997 were great; those were actually,surprisingly natural, for Testino pictures. But he is a fashion photographer too, and they're photos are often manufactured to death, until a person is barely recognizable. As in Charlotte's case.

But it makes sense that Vogue got a fashion phototog to do this because it was for Gucci. It was all for Gucci. Paid for and done by/for Gucci. And fashion houses always prefer mannequins to real people.
