Caroline was the ultimate disappointment, if I may say that. Leave her fashion aside, I could hardly tell if she was attending her brother's wedding or a funeral. Smile my dear! A large smile instantly removes 10 years from your beautiful face, here's a tip for all of you ladies. Her daughter was a dream, I must admit.

Why bring Grace into it ??
She did her best for Monaco. Without her, Monaco would be a failed state.
And her daughters have tried, in various ways, to follow her mum in sprinkling their own little bit of stardust on the Principality.

I did not bring Grace into, meaning something about what "job" she did in Monaco. I just shared my thoughts, comparing morher's/daughter behavior in a special subject (fashion sense at late 40ies), as a family behavior, independantly if they are princesses or not.

As if Caroline stood before her closet on the morning of the wedding, and only then decided what to wear, unfortunately being in a bad mood, chosing these ugly outfits.

Why attribute "bad mood" to her, when she might have been in a reflective mood, thinking about the three men in her unsuccessful love life ? How could anyone (in her situation) not think these thoughts?

This is about her clothes reflecting her mood, as you and Rosana think, right? Since her clothes for all wedding celebrations were truely unflattering, some would even say ugly, you could say she was in a foul mood, only if one follows your line of thinking of course, that is that she picked these clothes on the morning of The Day according to her mood.

But these outfits were chosen months and moths before The Day, of course. Get it? Utter nonsense, the mood thought. Caroline is losing it, fashionwise.

As for Caroline's fashion, we all move from place to place with our clothing. She's a mature woman now and has, perhaps, tired of the glamor. It is possible that she's just not that interested in her looks any longer. Been there, done that. How about you?

How about me? Do I agree with you? Have I been there, done that? Am I not interested in her looks any more? Am I not interested in my own looks any more?

I can't answer these questions. Caroline's alleged moods belong elsewhere. And I've never seen a single photo where Caroline looks ugly.

This thread is called "Albert and Charlene Guests and Fashions and the Holiday Celebrations".

One of the images that will stay in my mind are those of the children and young people. It was quite a contrast with the Grace nuptials with its grown-up attendants. I must say I preferred the younger Grimaldi kids. But it was nice to have Donatella Knecht there.

Worst dressed at the wedding was a toss up between Ira Von Furstenberg and Mrs Roberto Cavalli. One would think if your husband was a fashion designer you could do better, and if he designed this for you and said you looked good , divorce him or go shopping at Prada or Armani because he lied to you. Yeah, I think Mrs Cavalli came out on the bottom of the list narrowly nipping Princess Ira for the booby prize.

I so have to agree with you Pruts and possibly KittyAtlanta. I think Caroline is past her glamor days and does not appear to care much about her public appearances. She looked totally miserable at Albert and Charlene's wedding ceremony and the gown she chose for the evening reception was not only aweful and unflattering but also too far short to be elegant.

Not quite sure what you're getting at.

I reacted on the "how about you", which she apparantly asked to me!

I totally disagree with the idea that Caroline and/or Stephanie (or any of their children) are "not interested in their looks" / "awful and unflattering" and similar negative comments.

I bet that Caro, Char and the boys will shine at the Red Cross Ball - as always.

I do not think that Caroline is not interested in her looks anymore, either. I only find her choice of clothes becoming more strage by the day and often even unflattering. She used to have impeccable dress sense, but it seems to have left her or she bends her fashion ear to much to Lagerfeld. Stephanie is stylewise totally uninteresting.

As a woman who is aging (yes, I said it) I will put it out there that when I go out I don't much put as much effort dressing up as I did when I was younger. Back then, I would dress up to to go the mall/or grocery store...now its a beat up T shirt, some shorts (jeans/sweats in the winter) and my crocs. Which is shame because there are interesting single men there but I really don't care. Because I am there to do my thing. Of course, if its work and/or evening events I do dress up.

Why do I mention this? Well, I think as you get older sometimes you dress for comfort and not just fashion or looks. Quite honestly, I look at young girls now with the tight, crazy high heels..and I just say 20 years from now my dear. Twenty years from now your feet will revolt on you! I know of a young girl whose back went out because she has worn heels pretty much every day since she was a teen.

When necessary Caroline (and I) can look pretty darn hot. I don't think anything was wrong with Caroline's attire at the wedding, the shoes were not exciting but she probably wore them for comfort. Who wants to be in high heels all day when its hot?

As for her so called mood, well in the Hello! article that covered the wedding...they had a nice picture of her throwing a kiss at Albert when he and Charlene were walking down the aisle.
