The top 3 of the best:
Beatrice
Charlotte
Caroline

The worst ever:
Charlene
Sometimes she seems forgetting that she is a Europe Princess and not a cheep L.A. starlett.

After looking at these photos IMO it's not even so much clothing as "posture"... all the current ladies in Monaco do not have great posture (especially Charlotte)
From the current set only Beatrice Borremeo seems to know how to "stand"

Beatrice was definitely the belle of the ball. She looked absolutely stunning and by far looked the best of the ladies in the royal party.

Stephanie hasn't attended the Rose Ball for years now. Last time she attended was in 2003. It's the Red Cross Ball she attends regularly.

Beatrice was the best. She has a inner elegance whatever she wears.

Oh yes, that's exactly what crossed my mind when I saw her.. lol First I thought maybe it was the new theme, but was proven wrong lol

As for Caroline, she did look radiant and beautiful. Just not too wild about her dress.I remember her when she was younger and her gowns were exquisite. She was as elegant as her mom..Charlotte looks a lot like Caroline and would have been a hit if the dress would not have looked ripped off..
Also looks like the family of princess Antoinette was not present .. Or maybe I missed them.. Hope to see some dance pictures as well.

Caroline was radiant as always, Charlotte pretty, Beatrice gorgeous. Just the Princely couple was dull as dishwater

I think the Rose Ball is always one of the tackiest of the season in Monaco and putting Kaiser Karl in charge just made it more so. Perhaps if he had just stuck to a Belle Epoque theme instead of trying to blend Belle Epoque with Pop the costumes would have been better.

Yes, glamour was at its peak those days... The wardrobe and the hairdos
of the ladies, the decor... Considering that this is the Rose Ball, i hardly see roses in the decor. Pitty...

Beatrice is a goddess of beauty and elegance. Always tres chic, when she wears a jean or a gown. And her body posture is perfect. She' s like a swan.

Exactly. She is like a Boticelli painting, but in the meantime modern.
I dream to see her marying Pierre. She will be the most beautiful bride ever, the only one who could equal Grace Kelly.

Karl's shoes are terrible for this event. Very dusty, not shined at all.

I think you have put your finger on the problem. The pics from The Daily Mail ( which include the first we've seen of the dance floor) just underline your point.
