Well, Caroline almost never disappoints me, although i´m fed up of seeing both mother and daughter in black.

And i don´t get what Charlene did to her hair, horrible, and being so tall!!

Charlotte looks gorgeous! So disappointed Eugenie is there. She seems really snobbish and I'm afraid it's rubbing off on Charlotte. I wish Charlotte would hang out with Valentine again.

Charlene has an 80's hairstyle -- if you lived in the era, you remember the tall bangs. It's part of the "theme" of the event. Princess Grace herself often attended the ball in costume and was criticized for her dress (and in once case had hair so tall she couldn't fit in the car). It's part of the part they play and simply a fun part of the theme.

In my opinion ,they look horrible.They have no taste,no glamour,no elegance.It is a pity to have money and dress so horribly.Caroline has horrible earrings and an horrible bag,of course the gown is horrible too.Charlene is bad combed and the gown is horrible and Charlotte also as always in black,horrible too.It is so sad to see them,it is a pity

Well Caroline isn't totally in black - just the jacket. I hope we get some better of her later in the evening

Charlene's dress is perfect for her figure, but that peacock detailing! And that hair! So close!

I like Charlotte's dress and it is also perfect for her figure in giving her a more noticible waistline, but I agree in wanting to see her in come sort of color. The absence of color does not count.

Pierre looks dashing, and I love the pictures of him escorting his sister in. The little smile, too? Oh, stop it!

I like Caroline's fashion choice this year, but not the bag. The bag is hideous and should have been thrown in the bushes. Everyone's wearing all black, though (though I expected as much from the men). Rock n' Roll doesn't always require black. Red? Dark Blue? Silver? Gold? Hm...

Prince Arbert and Charlene don´t look like a couple, no chemistry at all. It´s so obvious it´s almost ridiculous.

I love Beatrice's dress, so elegant! I like Charlotte's outfit, minus the earrings. I don't particularly care for Charlene's. The glove isn't necessary and I don't like the hair.

Other than that, everyone looks great!

Which is the bag versus the the flowers? What I've seen is a bucket type bag (looking closely) with earphones and flowers in it. That's the flowers the presented her. It has a Rock'n Rose logo on it.

and I looked closer. Caroline was not carrying a bag or purse. She is carrying the flower bouquet that is a helmet with headphones and flowers. Not beautiful but not a fashion accessory - just a prop of the event.

She only attended once, back in 1969 when they had a hairdress contest and everyone had to wear one. The Rose Ball isn't a costume ball (masquerade) despite it's changing theme, sure some people like to wear something like an accesory related to the theme.

I think instead of it being the Rose Ball, to celebrate spring and the social season in Monaco, it's looking more and more like a Black and White Ball, regardless if they change the theme.

Everyone wearing black is kind of getting merged with the decor, lots of black tonight in the Sporting Club. I think Beatrtice Borromeo is the most beautiful of the night.

Oh, okay. I thought it was one of those old-fashioned evening bags. My mistake!

where is Eugenie? I haven't seen her in any pics. She's not the blond girl that was in the group pic on getty.

I think it's a bit harsh to be so hard on Charlene. I think she looked just fine and she was making a huge attempt to support the event by keeping with the theme. Can anyone point to the designer of either of the ladies' dresses?

Beatrice's dress is too old for her. It's a great color on her (she's tan enough to not look washed out), but the floor length cut-out sleeves age the dress tremendously.

edit: Now that I can see the pictures more clearly, I really like Caroline's bracelets.

But the theme is rock and roll, not punk. She looks awful. From toes to head.
