Did you notice she's only wearing one ear ring?

And I agree with posters who have said before that Charlotte and Dimitri make a lovely couple. I hope for her sake that this relationship will go the distance.

It's theatrical and elegant at the same time. And I am willing to bet the boa was detachable for dinner and dancing afterwards.

I have been observing Charlotte at this Ball for over a decade, and for the past two times she has seemed so happy and radiant.

Whatever...or whomever. ..has changed her smile from that hard forced semi smirk she used to give photographers is to be commended!
I think the family has a lot of fun at this Rose Ball! It always has a vague fantasy theme without being a costume ball. The females of the family have in recent memory pushed the fashion boundaries at this Ball which I think makes it fun for them. Dressing out is always more fun than simply dressing up. Karl's presence has intensified that trend.
I also think they have a great time watching the dancers; year after year we get photos of the family ladies whooping it up next to the dance floor. And good for them/that. It makes for some very real and happy family photos. They don't get caught in awkward dance photos but there are lots of pictures of them laughing out loud. Not often required of princesses. But still, nice to see.

Charlotte has lost that worn/hard edge she had for so long, she's put a little weight on and seems very happy now.

I remember Caroline said some years ago that she is not opening the dance anymore, youngers do it. Maybe Pierre and Beatrice ?

As this is from the Daily Fail I'm going to take this with a grain of salt. It would be lovely news if true though; Charlotte and Dmitri seem very happy together.

Yes I did notice that after I posted that she was not wearing any jewelry except for her new ring. Someone on another board posited that this was to keep the earring on her left...the one closet to the boa, from getting tangled in the feathers.

But why not just wear smaller earrings in TWO ears? ?

Paris Match reports that Dimitri was wearing one earring as well. .perhaps in a show of solidarity with his fiancée?

She only wore one earring last year as well, on the side her hair wasn't brushed towards. It must be a thing...

Agree with you. Can you kindly explain why the Princely Family, who used to be there in the past years, are not attending anymore. Thanks a lot

I really rather love Alexandra's dress but paired with her fresh scrubbed very young looking face and casual pulled back ponytail it just didn't work.

I thought all ladies looked charming. It was one of the best balls -fashionwise- of the latest years.

I agree, very nice outfits, very happy persons !
The absence of Prince Albert was very obvious, though. It seems Rose Ball is a Casiraghi-Hanover object and not the whole princely family, although the event's benefits are for the Princess Grace Foundation.

It is THE Casiraghi-Hannover and Karl Lagersfeld's Event. I wonder how much the guests had to pay ?

It was so cool to see Afra Casiraghi Marchetti at the ball. And Charlotte and Dimitri of course. I suppose it was Dimitri's first ball? (I mean, I know his mother attended in the past, so maybe he attended a long time ago? But I'm sure if that was the case, someone would have found that photo evidence by now.)

In terms of a sense of overall happiness and excitement this was the most successful Rose Ball in years, imo.

Paris Match online has some fantastic photos.

Yes tatianacressida...this was Dimitri's Rose Ball debut. At last year's Ball the rumours about his relationship with Charlotte had just begun circulate and really picked up steam when Charlotte wore a gown that Caroline had worn while co hosting an event with Dimitri's mother.

I think Stéphanie's kids never attended Rose Ball. I doubt if they even attended Red Cross Ball. They only attend the Monte Carlo Circus festival.
