I really like Caroline's hat and the color of her dress.
I would have liked it to be a shorter dress though.
Her face and hat remind me of her looks in the 80's.
Alexandra looked stunning too.
Actually I liked all the looks of the families.

If the dress were knee length and she wore heels, then presto -- 80's Caroline! Which is always a good thing.

Ye Gods, Stephanie looks like she's 100 years old, and that sour expression doesn't help.

Neither Caroline nor Stephanie have really aged well. Their skin looks leathery and tough, and it makes them look about a good 30 years older than they actually are. I don't leave the house, even if it's just to walk my dog, without slathering on SPF 75, especially in the summer when it's hotter than nine yards of Hades.

Both of them would look much, much better if they took better care of their skin.

I could not believe how aged and hard Stephanie looked today. Like the old sole of a leather shoe. How sad.

She looks horrible, unfortunately. Aged and weathered.

The sisters' facial skin look at their brother's civil wedding today, is very irrelevant. To criticize wardrobes is acceptable, to criticize their dual leathered appearances is not. The fact is after years of dealing with hateful, unnecessary tabloid trailor-trash talk and serious crticism from the masses about everything they have publicy done, have finally taken their toll on HRH Princess Caroline of Hanover, Hereditary Princess of Monaco, and her younger sibling, HSH Princess Stephanie of Monaco. I am glad all of you look use 75 SPF sunscreen always, and are such youthful in appearance. Just post a close-up of yourselves from an HD digital camera, and we can compare!
I am sure their many thoughts included various family members who have passed on and IMO, I am glad they kept their composure - for their own sake! I hope this entire family is blessed with the best still yet to come!

I am sorry to say but I agree with the comments regarding Stephanie and Caroline. Neither have aged well, but Stephanie looks a lot older then Caroline. I thought her outfit was nice, but too tight, she actually looked slightly pregnant.

They have not aged well or wrong, they have aged. They are 54 and 46, it is a complete nonsense to say they look about 80. They have fully enjoyed the Mediterranean sun, and how lucky they are! At least they have not filled their faces with botox like some women in their 30´s have already done.

As this is the Fashion thread I will say both sisters looked absolutely stunning. Caroline gave her outfit a particular look with the original hat and shoes. I also liked Charlotte, Alex and Camille. I almost don´t care what all these women wear. Everything looks good on them.

After viewing the very first pictures of the family and guests about 2 hrs. ago now, my first thoughts were the following:

1.) Princess Caroline has outdone herself ~ perfect ensemble ~ and that turquoise blue color looks the best on her, brought back visions of my hands down favorite outfit of hers back in the 80's: http://cdn.theroyalforums.com/forums...1&d=1066080587

2.) Princess Charlene has *it*....another winner....perfect for the civil ceremony; a solemn but also joyous occasion. I love how calm, cool, and collected she is; I would've been sweating and acting nervous, but not she! She has what it takes to be a princess. And the clothes she wore today prove that; they highlight her stunning blonde beauty with emerald green eyes. What a joy it will be to watch her over the coming decades ~ SALUT!

3.) Charlene's mother appeared like a vision on the balcony ~ my first time seeing her and I was blown away! ~ it's obvious where Charlene gets her good looks from. :) Nobody does it better than Nordic beauties like these two. Though I think the young Elizabeth Taylor was/is the most gorgeous woman to have ever lived, there's nothing like natural blondes, nothing. Brunettes have nothing over them. Jmho.

4.) What I saw of Pauline's outfit was gorgeous! Too bad she didn't make a full appearance on the balcony. Imho she has overtaken her cousin Charlotte in the looks department. Young, fresh, straight out of the schoolroom. Here's hoping she maintains that flawless youthful complexion.

5.) Princess Alexandra & Camille were surprises and delights! I loved seeing them both together on the balcony, and little Alex's smile is truly a joy to see, especially when her much loved uncle Prince Albert appeared in the throne room.

6.) Charlotte, Andrea, and Pierre were sophisticated and gorgeous, as always, not a hair out of place. They could pose for GQ or a fashion magazine anyday. All the time I see them together I'm reminded of the young Barrymores back in the 30's.

***ETA: but I have to be honest, Charlotte disappointed me a bit, she's not aging well unfortunately. Her best years were when she was a teenager. And the dress she wore proves that. Here's a picture of her only 6 yrs. ago: http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/TnE1P...otte+Casiraghi

And now compare that gorgeous Chanel outfit to this one today (makes her look like a grown 30 yr. old woman trying to wear an 18 yr. old's clothes): http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-qQsYveqoX-...2222222232.jpg ).

Sorry to say but all that horse riding and not wearing a hat to protect her skin has aged her prematurely. Women nowadays, don't they know that tans look not only unattractive, but make one look like an old leather prune. I miss the days of Princess Diana and her youthful peaches & cream complexion when she first married: http://suchanevent.files.wordpress.c...na-wedding.jpg ***

7.) Everybody else was lovely as well, including Charlene's two brothers, the maid of honor, the dashing handsome best man, relatives, guests, etc. etc. etc. It was a joyous occasion, one I feel honored to have witnessed in my lifetime. :)

NOW ONTO THE RELIGIOUS CEREMONY!!!!
