Look at the nose, please! They've gifted her with Giorgio Armani's surgical nose.
Eeek! Why must they relentlessly "perfect" her? It's ridiculous, like they just can't help themselves. Crazy Anna Wintour, green-lighting those pictures. While leaving any trace of her personality totally obscure, to boot.

I don't think she has changed that much. Prior to 2007 every "formal" event she attended with her mother - she basically let her mother take the reins and she was happy following. Now that she attends on her own, I think she is very cautious on her behaviour. If she were to smile directly looking at a camera, she would inevitably be inviting the photogs to take more pics of her. Similarly, if she would be more open with the press, there would be endless requests for interviews and more Qs regarding her personal life.

And regarding some previous comments about her possibly being bored - I don't know about that. Every time you see personal pictures - hanging on the beach or skiing - she seems very happy. And how can she not? This girl has everything - family, friends, love, money & good genes!

It would have been nice seeing her take a hands-on approach towards something, but she seems fine floating around. Whatever suits her..

Yes, i agree with you in that part. But i was referring about her face and what comes out of it, not only in the events she attend. She hadn't attended any event during her teen years in order to compare
I feel that she has changed. Her attitude and behavour have become more moderate, she is more non-demonstrative in front of the cameras/public (according to the pictures we see) but in her teens and her early 20s, she was breathtaking. Now she is just beautiful. I don't know if this attitude is just the reason (i don't think so) but there it is this undefined that's coming out of her.

Well imho it's called "growing up". She's become more mature, and will eventually settle down soon enough & have kids, just like her mom did before her, and her mom before her, & on & on & on...

It's just a part of life, she nor her brothers can stay teens & twenty-somethings forever, one does eventual age & grow old, it's all a part of life, and death despite how hard the media wants one to stay young forever, their abhorrence of getting old, and this abnormal fixation on youth.

One can only hope that Charlotte grows old as gracefully as her mother has done, and doesn't end up as a sad caricature of herself the way some do when they try to stay young forever.

I agree with Nadine. Teenagers are just more bubbly than adults. They have no responsibilites.

Well FanofMonaco I agree with you, but what kind of responsabilities could Charlotte Casiraghi have? I think none. And I am not expecting her to have any very soon, when you're in such position ( daughter of a famous princess, granddaughter of a Prince and of an A-list actress turned royal, ultra rich paternal family, fame and money since the minute you were born......)what should you do with life apart from enjoying it?

Exactly. They girl is only 24 and you are talking about ageing gracefully! She's got friends, love, a loving family, plenty of money, a passion for art and horses... And not responsabilities whatsoeaver in the horizon.
All she has to do is enjoying life!

She is still 24 guys..come on! What responsibilities..(?) i dont understand..she has money, her family and so on that Ver Friedel and trepstrep already mentioned and i don't wanna repeat.. Well, actually age doesn't play an important role because people in her age work in order to earn money and be independent because their family cannot support them economically or because they want to be independent and live their own life. I can see no renspobilities to Char or any other rich girl/boy. I am not mean or sth but that's the truth. What i said in my previous comment has nothing to do with her "busy" life that made her look like that. She lost sth from her face. Maybe i'm the only one that notices that. There are some people who keep having this special thing they had in their teens and hasn't faded (yet).

It looks like she has several jobs to me. She attends some of the events in Monaco. She goes around getting free publicity for Monaco. She always goes to events like film festiivals, fashion shows, and art events that are Monaco's market niche. She has 3 horses so she probably rides at least 3 hrs a day. She helps PC raise money for the family foundations. And she does Ever Manifesto once a year. I think she also gets paid to use certain phones, watches, sneakers, fashion houses, ski jackets, Uggs, etc. She might also have been an influence in getting Gucci to sponsor the Masters in Paris. The GCT may pay her or at least let her compete for free in return for the publicity she generates for them. I think she stays pretty busy.

And this is what you call a job? Being paid to use top brand things? A job requires some kind of effort to make a living. It is sad, but none of the Casiraghis has excelled in any activity. I thought this was Caroline´s intention when she decided to raise them out of the spotlight. Eventually, they turned into more shallow, unproductive way of life. I don´t blame them. I don´t know what I would do in their situation. I wish one of them had taken responsibilities seriously, so that PA does not have to make this farse to have a heir.

Well, if that's a job then i don't know how to call the daily life of someone else who has to wake up at 6 o'clock in the morning to go to her/his job, return to her/his house at afternoon or sometimes at night, earn little money, has to grow the children (or earn so little money that she/he can't even live properly. And that thing is repeated again and again every day. Come on! Yes, she is busy. But not that busy so that she cannot breathe or have time to go on holiday and so on.. I can't stand listening that Char or any other rich girl/boy works! She attends fashion shows and shows in general..that's very tiring and stressful..i understand.. She is getting paid to wear some brands..This is not a job actually. The previous example i wrote comes from the daily life of many people. These people sometimes have to work from a young age to earn their money because their parents cannot support them financially. And some people have to do two jobs in order to earn enough money fo their life. And those examples are all around us. And i know people who do two jobs and have time for nothing. Well, that is what i call Busy people. It is ridiculous to say that Charlotte works. Riding is a hobby for her, i don't think that she spends so much time on it, according to her results.
I don't blame her either. She is born having a secured future and a rich family. That's okay. There are many rich people who do the same as her.

I don't blame her at all either! I would neither work if I was in her position!
But she certainly doesn't need to keep on doing any of the activities she does in order to sustain herself, so I wouldn't call it working either.
Everything she does (fashion, art, horses) she does it for fun. If it were too stressfull for her she could just quit.

It is very diferent from some rich people who manage big enterprises with dozens of employees and may worry about the people who depend on them.
On a professional rider with a big estable.

She's just an amateur in everything she does (and she is right to be so, life is to be enjoyed), and has no responsabilities at all. She will be a teenager all her life is she wants to.

By your definition all athletes, actors, musicians, artists and models are not working. I think most people who are very successful are passionate about what they do whether they are an actor or a CEO of a large corporation. The truth is we don't know how many hours or what activities Charlotte does because she and the people who know her never talk about it. The only time we see her is when she is involved with some kind of public activity or on vacation. The same for Andrea and Pierre.

How so?
Athletes, actors, musicians etc GET PAID/EARN MONEY from he activities they do.

Charlotte doesn't. That's the big difference.
Spending money on horses and going to a couple of parties so that Gucci keeps on helping you paying for the horseys is not a job whichever way you want to put it.
Charlotte doesn't work. She just fills her time with plesurable activities. And nothing wrong with that.

Well, her entire schedule makes her 'busy' in order keep her preoccupied with something, anything. Since she's convinced she's not like other socialites, heiresses that she hangs out with, she tries to be perceived as the one with a 'job', workout body, focus on her face. Everytime I see her she seems to have 'Life's been so bad to me!'. IMHO, her horseriding career is a flop. So if anyone is going to tell me she has solid work ethic...

The thing is that she might feel a bit obliged to the whole legacy and her mother's faith in her, and since she's said that she's superbsmart and hardworking, she tries her best...

If I were her, I would not even bother with that. Whole world knows how ridiculously lucky and loaded she is, so why bother? You won the lottery Charlotte, have fun. Seems you're not born to do anything else, learn to live with a zest. That's my advice.

That's what life is. Right now, there's a harsh blizzard outside of my window. And I see frostbitten welders working like crazy since 7. That's a job. And afterwards, they don't have this look on their faces.

I agree La Bouche Dor. But let´s not be so harsh to Charlotte. I don´t know how long she trains every day. It depends if she is amateur or professional. I don´t pay much attention to her horse riding career. Professional sportman work hard every day, and when they are not supported by their governments or family, they have to get an extra job, which is not the case.

A job doesn´t have to imply extreme physical effort. You can write and have a job. Anyway, we are talking about royalty. Did her mother have a job, or her grandmother? Or did they only carry out some duties? I would say royals do not have a real job. There can be some exceptions, though. I´m convinced that attend openings and galas, receive presidents or participate in a charity organization is not a real job. They are rich and have the priviledge to choose to study or not, to work or not. The important thing, whatever she does, is that she does not feel she lives an empty shallow life, like their socialite friends seem to do.

Grandmother Grace Kelly had a job, she was an actress for what, ten years? Well at least she had a schedule and put an effort in something.
Mom, Aunt and Charlotte herself don't have even the slightest shadow of what we define a job.
So what? What would you expect from someone in her filthy rich position, as I wrote before?
I do not want to be an hypocrite, I do not blame Charlotte for not having a job. What job could she do, by the way?
An office one?
Secretary? Lawyer? Real Estate agent? Come on.........
She is lucky to live off her wealth ,and she does well.

Being an actress is not an easy job because you have no idea if you work tomorrow, if you take the 1st and best role, and if you have many fans. The same goes for the athletes and the singers and the painters and the photographers bla bla.. It's totally different, because they try to make money, become famous but even if they reach the top, noone promises them that they won't fall someday.
