I love the suit (assuming it's Chanel; shoes too?) - but, agree that for someone her age, the skirt is a bit short. Now, maybe she's making a "look at me, I'm single and beautiful" statement - to which I say GO FOR IT!! However, even though she has the body to wear couture, sometimes, dressing in the wrong age category brings out your true age.....sorry.....

I agree with you Tosca. P. Caroline looks beautiful, fresh and youthful. However, a longer ( just a little longer ) would have bring more balance to the whole outfit.

Agree that a longer skirt would have looked more elegant. She looks fine, though. She has great legs for her age. I don't know why she would wear a skirt like that. I mean, I know (and she probably knows of course) that she can pull of that skirt, but i thought that she knows about elegance too, and at her age, even if you have the greatest legs, you should wear a little longer skirt.

Fondation Prince Pierre - the five shortlisted writers.....

Dominique Bona has already had two literary prizes, the Prix Renaudot in 1988, and the Prix Interallié in 1992.
Her book for the FPP is a biography about Clara Malraux, the widow of André Malraux, ex-minister under Charles de Gaulle.

Dominique Bona - EVENE Dominique's biography
Clara Malraux - Dominique Bona - Livre - EVENE About the book
André Malraux - EVENE
Short bio of André Malraux

****************************

Emmanuel Carrère has several prizes to his name. His family is Russian. He is a film critic
Biography:
Emmanuel Carrère - EVENE
His quotations:
Emmanuel Carrère - Ses citations - EVENE

Three more to come...

...Number three of the contenders:

Jean-Paul Kauffman: got the Prix de la Langue Française in 2009
Jean-Paul Kauffmann - EVENE

Olivier Rolin - ex-revolutionary, journalist with Libération and Nouvel Observateur.
Writes about history, geography, capitalism and monotheism.
Olivier Rolin - EVENE

And finally, Danièle Sallenave: winner of the Prix Renaudot, also jury member for the Prix Femina (a bit like our Orange Prize) - must be interesting to receive prizes and also handing them out.

I love Caroline´s whole outfit at the Prince Pierre Foundation meeting . The suit is classic whatever the skirt lenght is .... Why can´t a woman in her fifties wear a short skirt?
Good for her !!

I agree, Caroline is able to pull off what a lot of women her age (or otherwise) wouldn't be able to. That part of your leg above your knee isn't the easiest to show off , especially as you get older--Caroline still has great legs. Maybe for an event like that a bit longer skirt would work better, but Caroline almost all of the time looks great, no matter what she wears. I like her, and she is single and beautiful--I say more power to her whatever she wants to do.

The annual marathon of books starts again !

Council members have been reading the books between June 16th and August 27th.

There's a new category: bursaries for the best two literary critics.
There's also a get-together in the shape of a "thé littéraire" - a literary Tea Party - at the Louis Notari Library, and this venue will also see the Bourse de la Découverte (Discovery Bursary) on Tuesday September 28th.

It's time for the International Contemporary Art Prize by the Fondation Prince Pierre de Monaco. Since 2005, the Prize has been presented for a contemporary art work by an emerging artist.

I wonder whether FPPM has been represented again at the Paris Book Fair 2011 - or rather "Le Salon du Livre" ?? I haven't found anything .....

Tomorrow are the Awards, right?
Have any of the Casiraghi ever been there for the Awards?
Are Albert or Charlene attending?

Caroline looks very nice. Blue is a nice colour on her.
