I have to say she has been looking very haggard lately, but she is lovely in these photos. I don't think one can fake the fondness for cats that appear in these photos. I think probably she has a fondness for all animals. I have to say that red spotted tabby that got more than one photo is stunning!

I love these pictures - she seems to be enjoying herself....one criticism (and, I have few), I think the leopard print fur coat (even if faux) wasn't the right choice for this event, since most of those attending are animal lovers...other than, that, she looked lovely!! I like the cat in Pic #2

I understand your criticism, but I am fond of faux animal prints and I am rabid about my domestic kitties. Somehow when I wear the faux prints, I feel I'm doing homage.

When real fur is worn (farmed or not), I am very mournful.

Hmm. About the animal print clothing, it's only the design, isn't it? It's not the same as actually wearing the skin or the fur of an animal, faux or not. I used to be OK with the faux furs, but then I read the Stella McCartney/Charlotte interview and Stella, I thought, made a very good point. She said that if you wear your faux fur, a lot of people can't tell, and even if they can't, it's what it represents that is objectionable. And Charlotte asked Stella if it was ok to wear a vintage fur like from your grandmother, and Stella said, yes, in private sure, but if you rock it out in public, no one knows that it was your grandmother's, so it's like giving the whole industry your blessing. So I guess it's the same with the mere animal print? It's the representation? I guess you can look at it two ways: 1) that it represents "wearing" animals skins, 2) that it pays homage like Horseygal says. I'm on the fence with this one. On the one hand, I think it's harmless, but I can understand some who say it's the representation of wearing animal skin, and that's kind of creepy. But it isn't as bad as actually wearing the skin! I HATE the alligator leather industry. That's truly vile! Right up there with the snake skins and other reptilian skins. Why would you just kill an animal to take its skin and make it into a handbag? People say, "Well, don't you wear leather shoes?" Well, no, actually I don't~! I wear synthetic leather or canvas shoes. And it's NOT the same as carrying around an alligator skin Birkin that EVERYONE with a brain knows was made from the sacrifice of an alligator, who actually DIED so you could have that friggin' handbag -- I mean, not so you could eat or anything, just for a handbag! THAT is a crime. Much worse than the animal print but again, I can understand where you're coming from, iceflower.

I like the style of the dress on the rack, but even though I think Caroline looks fantastic in every other way, I don't think the dress suits her as well as other dresses. It just isn't one of her better ones, imo. Besides, animal print thing aside, I do think it's kind of ugly.... It's beautiful on the leopard, but for me, it doesn't translate the same way onto human attire. At any rate, it is cool to see her with cats. I love cats myself. On 60 minutes yesterday there was an incredible story about the jaguars who are endangered and they have the most of them in Brazil, but the 'most' is even quite small...... The camera crew got some amazing shots of them, up close, just sitting down sunning themselves! Amazing! Unbelievably majestic feline!

I am animal lover, and pescaterian, and love the leopard print, but as long as the print is faux I say bring it on as I love the leopard print & wear it quite a lot, I have a Birman & Siamese which are seal point and feel quite proud when people comment....yes I love cats and I think that is what Princess Caroline is trying to say with the leopard print coat - nothing more - nothing less

Her leopard coat is ugly. I hate those kind of leopard jackets, bags, blouses etc. What is this thing about animals she attended?

I remember seeing a picture in ParisMatch of her walking a cat on a leash, in Paris, when she was nine or ten or so.

She looked fun I think for this engagement still wish she would stop smoking and put on a few kgs as her closeups are less then great but she's coloured her hair and think she looks okay here. Do people still do that walk cats like dogs ?? Haven't seen that as you say for a long time selket.

I don't like this haircolor, it is so very very much brown, it basically screams RECENTLY DYED FOR ZERO GREY. A little less on the pigments would have been so much more natural.

I love her hair color. It's HER color I mean it really suits her and pulls off her magnificent blue eyes. She does well to dye it, beacuse I would never want to see her with grey hair!

If this was an International Cat show it seems like an odd choice to wear a leopard coat!
Leopard is a BIG BIG cat, no?
But thats just me.

I think she could look awesome in grey hair - just not quite yet!

I think Caroline is recycling earrings that she wore in 1985 on her ski holiday.
I remember a very cute picture of her and baby Andrea cuddling and Caroline was wearing heart shaped earrings that looked very similar.
The pic is on this page at the bottom left, but the earrings aren't visible: http://i19.tinypic.com/66e4h1x.jpg
