The last time i heard it was 1000 Euros a ticket...now that is expensive!!!>____<

anyhow, stephanie looks really bad. and caroline, nothing really wow about her outfit. it's a pretty boring affair that could have been remedied had the new grimaldis decided to show up.

Just wondering, how does one know whether the Red Cross Ball was a marvelous or boring event based on the photo stills? I mean, unless one was present at the ball, how can one really tell that it was a boring affair? The Red Cross Ball had always been a great party. Sure, it would have been nice to see photos of either Charlotte or Andrea at the ball but for what? To satisfy the media hunger for new photos of them? Just curious, that's all.

Stephanie at Red Cross Ball

I loved seeing Stephanie at the Ball at all, given that she has boycotted/been excluded from it in recent years. And I also thought she looked terrific. Her evening wear choices can be a bit dicey. Often they empasize the wrong things -- her swimmer's broad shoulders, very muscular arms, or boyish waistline. But I thought this dress suited her well, and I liked her hair not being scraped back tightly as it so often is. I just wish she would wear it a few shades lighter. :)

oh i don't know for sure. i'm sure it's not boring if you're an ultra rich person because parties like the red cross ball would give you a chance to further your connections, and exchange a few, mundane, uninteresting quips with other ultra rich persons... i should know, my father was once a diplomat [he dragged me to balls/ social gatherings] and though i can't recall having attended a party as grand as the RCB [and i have attended some fair share of social events especially in eastern europe, southeast asia], i can't imagine how it would be different. probably more famous faces in it than other parties but then if you spend a few minutes with those people it's either you get stifled by their egos or they get farther and farther away from the image they project and before the evening ends you always wish you were somewhere else. i just can't imagine how another charity ball could be more interesting. unless of course the grimaldi kids are there... %-))))))))

and yes, it would have been nice to see charlotte &/ andrea at the ball not only to satisfy the 'media hunger' but truthfully the hunger of paparazzi patronizing people like us who very much want to see charlotte in a wonderful ball gown for a change instead of the usual jeans or bikini and to see andrea wearing a tuxedo instead of those bohemian clothes he's always in and of course, his hair neatly combed.

It would be nice to see the kids at a fancy function. It is always fun and easy on the eyes to look at youth in their prime. Anyone descended from Grace and Ranier are blessed (or cursed) with incredibly good looks. The camera loves them.

Notice how the paparazzi do not photograph as often the royals who are frumpy, dowdy, or just plain not so attractive. (I'm trying to think of which royals those are. Many in the British RF are okay, even cute, but not insanely classically beautiful like the Grimaldi folks.)

I think Charlotte, like her mother in her youth, is stomp-down, head-turning, eye-catching, jaw-dropping gorgeous. Cameras follow people like that.

Plus, I think after all the scandals of Stephanie and Caroline, and the disappointment of Albert not marrying or having children, for whatever reason, royal watchers like us have high hopes to admire the future of the young Monegasques. I, for one, want to be happy and excited for the younger generation there. I hope they make good choices with their good fortunes and are mindful of their reputations and other people's boundaries.

Caroline, Albert and Stephanie (together), Pictures and News Thread

Thought I'd start a thread on all the news and pics of the siblings together.

I must admit I think Stephanie looks very nice with her hair like that. I'm usually a Stephanie basher, but she is quite attractive with her hair normal looking.

I think they worked on this project last year too. I wish Stephanie would lighten
her hair and not wear black it just makes her look older and more masculine.But at least she hasn't gone back to cornrows.

I agree with that, but I'm just relieved she stopped that curling Lionel-Richie thing. That was horrifying

I think that Stephanie looks very pretty in that last pic. She looks happy and healthy. I like her dress as well.
