I think Charlotte has probably known Virginie since she was a teenager. The same with Jean Rochefort, the French actor. They are old family friends from Fontainebleu who all love horses. Who wouldn't want to go to a premiere if they got the chance? Why does everything have to have a dark motive?

^ I know that this woman is ambitious: it's a fact, a very well known fact in french horse riding world. Some people are like this, that's life...
It's not an attack to say something I know about this woman, so I don't understand your last question. And to answer to your first question: she took the chance to go to this premiere, as anybody would (as I would!!). But she goes to it with Charlotte, to share her light, as she did at Dolce Vita projection in Roma, at Gucci Museum opening, etc. She's a fame lover!

Charlotte arriving at L'Arc de Triomphe restaurant where she had dinner with George Clooney (and also other people!) : http://www.purepeople.com/media/char...soiree_m723291
I can't believe that she still uses the grey pashmina she had when she was a teenager: I love it!!
Do you recognize her shoes? She already wore them at a Stella Mc Cartney fashion show, with a blue dress, a few years ago!

Video of Charlotte arriving at the premiere: we see her very quickly at the beginning, and then it is all about George. (http://www.gala.fr/l_actu/on_ne_parl...a_paris_244505) On this video we can see her walking (http://lci.tf1.fr/people/le-tapis-ro...t-6770591.html - first little video) I don't know what you will think about her... I know, optimistics VS pessimistics... But if she didn't want to be seen, she should have stayed at home. She begins to be really ridiculous when she hides herself at official events.

Kate all rich people are ambitious. That's how they became rich. That's how they stay rich. You don't think George Clooney is ambitious? He's just a very good people person ,so it's not as in your face.

Thank you Iceflower!
I think that she's beautiful on the second pic, and on the contrary, I don't like her on pics 1 and 3: that's the proof that a smile can really change a face, and make a woman even more than beautiful!
Am I the only one to not really like her outfit? I think that her tights are too black, and even if I love when she wears braid, this one (I think that in english, you say french braid?) is too simple for the occasion.
Charlotte seems to be less and less a professional rider, and more and more a professional socialite. She reminds the way she behaved at the end of the Felix era, and at the beginning of Alex's one. Lots of parties. Maybe it announces a new change in her life?

EDIT: PurePeople Gallery (http://www.purepeople.com/article/ch...-karl_a89646/1) On the first pic I think that she looks a lot like her mother.

I think it is just raining over her head! A normal reaction. The guy retired the umbrella. You see some next people still havethe umbrella in the same point where Charlotte has the head uncovered.
Patrick Poivre d'Arvor has also quite the same posture.

Only the Princess of Venise seems not to care about the rain.

She looks beautiful as usual. Most of the most beautiful women, when she has a smile in her face.
Her dress is...idk, i don't like it too much...her posture seem to have improved.

It's incredible to read people's comments on purepeople, or other websites!! Usually, Charlotte is criticised a lot as a snob spoilt socialite, and now that on the pics we see her smiling, people say that she's beautiful, nice, etc. It's so funny!!

I agree. She seems to have became miss socialite. Every day a different party..........well, I would not exxpect her to be stuck at home at her age and in her position.

I have noticed on one of PA's civil wedding videos and the Paris premiere video that lasers are being aimed at Charlotte; I guess from video cameras. I would find that frightening. You wouldn't know if it was a camera or a weapon. It also might explain why she is ducking her head down. You wouldn't want to look into a laser beam.

I like her latest outfit and the hair! The make up suits her really well.
Thanks for the pictures, Iceflower

I personnally think that this pic is one of the most beautiful pic of Charlotte I have ever seen. Her face is perfect, her make up is very luminous, it's even the first time I find her beautiful with make up (I prefer when she's natural). Her eyes, her little smile, makes her look amazing!
There is also a strong similarity with her mother, and even with her aunt on this pic.

I agree. As much as I HATE to say it, Charlotte's almost becoming Europe's Paris Hilton-without the drunk driving conviction.

Charlotte is nothing like Paris Hilton. That is insulting.

I fail to see the Paris Hilton-Charlotte Casiraghi connection.

Paris is/was rich trying to be famous. Charlotte is rich and well known. The only thing that they have in common (besides the fact that they don't have to have to work 40 hours for a pay check) is that they are young woman who come from money and are considered socialites. You don't see Charlotte seeking additional fame by appearing on a reality television show or being paid to open clubs, etc.

Sometimes I really don't get the ALL of Charlotte criticism...yes, she should probably focus on one thing in her life. Something that interests her and brings her happiness. She probably could give back to people who are not as fortunate (not that we don't know if she does this). But guess what, there are a lot of people her age (both rich, not so rich and/or poor) who haven't found themselves.

I also find it ironic that sometimes we (I am using the universal we) are critical of Charlotte just attending parties, fashion shows, events, etc and 1) we are actively seeking these pictures 2) we are critical of her receiving press but because of who she is (because of either her, her mother, grandmother or whatever) and not what she has done and yet we are still seeking information on her because of her family lineage and 3) if there are no pics of her doing anything (attending events, getting coffee, sitting on a bench or whatever) than people are wondering where the pics are?

And to top if off, we are critical of the life choices that Charlotte makes that let's face it....other than who she is and her link to the Monaco throne...she is a private person...she doesn't owe any of us any explanations if she sits in her room all day and eats chocolate.

ETA: Don't get me wrong. I understand that this is a discussion board and we are all here because we have an interest in Monaco Princely family and by extension Charlotte...I guess I just wonder what you guys expect from Charlotte (i.e. world peace, a noted philanthropist, etc.). I would also like to remind people that she is fairly young and she needs time to grow. Just because she is rich and well known....that is no different from you and I.
