It is perhaps the deception (though unauthorized!) which makes me say so bitterly: The Chanel show is just the trial of an imitation of what in former times Gabrielle Chanel has created.

Well I don't know! Albert is just Albert, tux or no tux, so nothing new there.

But the Grimaldi Women . . . Caroline looked like she was wearing a white sack dress and Charlotte, well let's just say the dress did not suit the occasion and was terribly aging, oh 20 going on 40!

As for Charlene, what can you say. It's either strapless or plunging neckline. Both is just soooooo Hollywood!

In point of fact, the ladies on the red carpet at both the BAFTA's and the Oscar's left these three ladies for dead, which is a shame because each one of them is very attractive.

All in all a very bland black and white event. Just when the world needs a little colour . . . . . .

Charlotte seems to be the next Cruella De Vil from the 101 Dalmatians...

Princess Caroline was always smiling but I guess she was obviously sad. Prince Ernst is still in hospital and Tatiana's father, Julio Mario Santo Domingo jr., that was also a good friend of Caroline's, has passed away in New York, just a few hours before the Ball!

Thank you for all the pictures.
The gowns are very beautiful, but maybe worn by the wrong people.

Soo-o-o glad to see the pics.
Charlotte's earrings were fabulous. lot's of different textures for the eyes in the dress. Texture is definitely in-style!!great job!!

The black version of that particular dress was more appealing than the orginial runway white version --although both pretty it's really a matter of preference, per se and the earrings made the outfit!!!

Guys are always handsome!!!! So, glad to see that Caroline's little Alexandra made it to the ball for a little r & r fun!! Certainly it must have been a treat to see all the fun!!!

So according to Giov Tatiana Santodomingo's father passed away! :( So that's the reason she and Andrea weren't in the Ball. My condolences go to her family.

Royrules I agree with your comments, Caroline looked better preparing the Ball than the Ball itself. And as for her tired look, among the family problems she had this weekend, preparing a huge party like this can be sooo tiring even if you have helpers.

The helmet wasn't a purse....it was the presented bouquet and takes the cake as the most UGLY bouquet I've ever seen presented to a royal at an event. I think it deserves it's own thread (kidding). I know everyone is mistaking it as a purse.

It is a helmet with (scratch that) they aren't earphones they are goggles attached with glue and roses around the brim. It's part of the "rebel" theme for Rock'n Roll but I think I'd have preferred something that didn't resemble a purse!

she bears a strong resemblance to Victoria Beckam with this look. I followed the Grimaldis for a long time they need something fresh- good for business!
So I'm not the only one to see a resemblance to Victoria Beckham...
I like Charlene's outfit, but not her hairdo. Anyway I think she's improved a lot.
Caroline's outfit was awful IMO. Charlotte wears the same old expressions: with hair down and with hair put up...

Well..so much to say.

I too am sorry to hear about the passing of Tatianna's family. That explains Andrea's absence....I am assuming that he is with Tatianna...and that's were he needs to be.

Not feeling any of the key ladies outfits. I agree that Charlotte needs to step away from the black a bit. I remember when I wanted to wear black to my prom (many moons ago) and was told thatI was too young to wear it. I know she isn't 18 but still.

No comments about Charlene's hair...it was very 80's so in that respect she is close to the theme.

Wow, Caroline's had quite a week in that respect. That explains the tired look.

I have seen a video on italian television about MONACO ROSE BALL. Charlotte is much more beautiful on video than in pictures if is possible. She has a wonderful face.

Looking at the various photo galleries, I find it interesting that there are pictures of Pierre & Beatrice both posed with their friends & dancing together, but none of Charlotte with Alex.

I would give credit to all of the ladies this year for trying their best. It would be hard for me to associate rock & roll with elegance in any way; it's more a one or the other type thing. That being said, I though Princess Caroline looked good (and kudos for her for showing up and displaying yet again what a trooper she is) and her and Charlene both seemed willing to get a little risky with their style for the sake of the theme. Caroline's dress was not exactly form-fitting but, as usual, I think she looked great (she's not a kid anymore). I thought Charlotte looked absolutely stunning, flawless as usual, and I don't think the dress was too dark, it showed up different in different pictures. I really loved the ones of Prince Albert and Charlene 'getting down' with their bad selves on the dance floor -you go! I won't name any names but am I the only one who marvels at how terrible fashion-designers always seem to dress? Maybe it's just me...

I am not surprised that Andrea was not at the ball. If I am correct he never attended Rose Ball, he usually appears at Red Cross ball. The same goes with Steph, she only attends Red Cross balls.
Question: where everybody saw pics of Alex Dellal, I couldn't find them

Andrea did attend the Rose Ball in 2007 and in 2006, you can find pics
of both balls in the older Rose Ball threads

Here are two pics of Alex, I'm not sure in which of the galleries pics of
him can be found..

** Alex 1 ** Alex 2 **
