Charlene looks great, imo. and not ridiculous at all.

Charlotte on the other hand...such a shame she continually wears ridiculous dresses.

Royals ? For the most part the ball is attended by new multi millionaries and celebrities or pseudo celebrities.

Oh dear! Charlene looks a mess. OTOH, I don't know who Sylvie Tellier is, but she looks stunning.

I am never done scratching my head with the Monaco Royals. In the case of Charlottle, for example, one wonders why she can't just date a boy her age, is it so difficult? You know, common sense tells most people that being with a guy so much older more often than not will not work but the Grimaldi's always seem to make life hard for themselves.

She is not a Countess. Her father is a Count but he never married her mother.

This is interesting. Charlotte glared (pouted?) at the cameras. Over and over. Charlene took off the ecru leather bomber jacket to unveil a Marilyn Monroe top covered by a silver spider web of a bolero? With eye make up that puts Pippa Middleton to shame (actually, not to shame, maybe).

Karl Lagerfeld had the best posture of the bunch, in photos. I realize that the family each is deeply into their own thing, but this family at this time would bring the Revolution to England if that were where they reigned.

And I just want Princess Caroline to stand up rather than hunch. Vive Monaco, I guess. God bless their rulers for supporting various European economies.

Beatrice looked lovely but I wish her hair was up. She can stand and sit straight too.

Beatrice definitely looks the most elegant in those pictures. Charlotte is a beautiful but the dress is not the best choice..it looks like part of it got ripped off.:( As for Charlene, oh dear. She used to dress much better before, I wonder what has happened..
I also miss Stephanie,what a pity that her daughters don't make an appearance. It might add some glamour that is needed..Gone are the days of glamour and elegance..I remember a younger Caroline who was absolutely dazzling and of course who could forget the beauty of Princess Grace?

Agree completely.
Charlene - my only explanation is, that she arrived with her Harley Davidson

Except for gorgeous Beatrice, the Ball was a disappointment. One good thing though, Charlotte looks happier than ever before.

Although I agree that maybe this is not Princess Charlene's best look, she still looks beautiful. The dress is not spectacular, but the the top part with the bolero and choker detail suits her. It is something different and together with her makeup creates a lovely effect.

I am, however, disappointed with overall coverage of the event. There's a lot of attention on Gad and Charlotte, and no pictures of the dancing...yet.

Sylvie Tellier was Miss France 2002. Nowadays she is the general director of Society Miss France and of Miss Europe Organization

Beatrice is not a countess. Her father is, but Beatrice's mother and him were never married.

Just can't resist posting a pic of a Rose Ball in Grace's day. ( I think this was her last one). Yes times have moved on, and the current Monaco royals can look wonderful at times, but imo Grace always looked good.
