Yesterday the press release for the coming ball was published.
Gloria Estefan will be the star of the show. The press release
can be found here in a pdf version. The scene of the evening
will be a mixture of a "Miami Party" and a "Latin Summer".


The thread will be opened as the event approaches.

so the thread is now open!
Have fun reading and posting and enjoy the show! :smile:

I think we're all curious to see if the Casiraghi siblings will attend and the ladies's gowns. It's a shallow perspective but...:curtsey:

Yes, but today is the international horse show in brazil and athina onassis will attend it..
And Char told in her interview that she'll be there, too..
So let's see if the boys are in the Red Cross Ball.. I guess Pierre may go.

RubyPrincess168 07-31-2009 05:58 AM

I was really hoping Char would be there. I'm curious what Chanel frock she would've worn. I don't suppose there's some way she could make it back in time???

As where toilletes are concerned, i must confess that i'd like to see P. Caroline in an elegant, classical gown ( Chanel or not ), instead of those "strange" outfits she's been chosen in the past years for the Bal de la Rose. I'd like to see her again in a truly sophisticated and princely gown... :rose:

azure 07-31-2009 09:27 AM

Haha.. and not a black one.. that goes especially to char, in case she attends it :rofl:

At what time will the Ball begin this year? Im a few hours we'll know who attended for sure...Looking forward to see you all at our traditional "online ball".

Glistening Seas
:rose: we hadn't realized that charlotte would be at brazil this time round we thought her injuries would have kept her out for a while. however if she is that too is wonderful.

:thistle:we had hoped to see them at the ball with Caroline and hopefully stephanie.

:rose: PA and the boys never look bad at these although it's for certain the performers should make the show quite a lot of fun!

I hope it's not true but Caroline in not attending at RED CROSS BALL !

queenofthelight 07-31-2009 03:37 PM

Wow, Charlene Wittstock looks stunning in this bright red evening outfit!!!:eek::previous::smile:

Thank you very much, RADKER18, for these first photos from Red Cross Ball!:flowers:

monaco70s 07-31-2009 03:38 PM

Well it seems Princess Caroline missed this year's ball, just like she did in 1999 because she had given birth to Alexandra, but now what could the reason be? Both Princess Stephanie and Charlene look stunning. I wish Stephanie wasn't so tanned though.

RADKER18 07-31-2009 03:38 PM

Caroline is not there from what I can tell

Both Ladies looks Beautiful Love the red and The flower print dresses

May 07-31-2009 03:43 PM

Why is that? Does anyone know?:ermm:

sugarbaby318 07-31-2009 03:43 PM

Stephanie looks stunning!

monaco70s 07-31-2009 03:44 PM

Well it seems they're having the dinner outside in the gardens like last year and maybe the "ball/concert" will take place inside the Sporting Club. Anyone know how it will be this year?I think I see Elizabeth Ann behind Stephanie wearing a lilac dress in some photos.It's so weird Princess Caroline missed the ball, she never misses the Red Cross, only two times she missed it were in 1991 because she was in mourning and 1999 after Alexandra's birth.

Nathalie Cox 07-31-2009 03:48 PM

Oh! no Caroline and no Casiraghis!:nonono:

Charlene looks fine, the dress is wonderful, but i'm not sure if red suits her.
Albert looks good, and Stephanie as tanned as usual.

Boris 07-31-2009 03:52 PM

The top of Charlene Wittstock's dress is decidedly vulgar. Good color, but this - errhhh... breastplate is absolutely horrid.
Princess Stéphanie's dress strikes me as quite boring, but at least it's not tacky.
It would be rather astonishing if Princess Caroline (and children) preferred not to attend.
