You can find several pics in the already posted galleries. Here's one for example, not that close, but still good for a mother-daughter comparison
Lovely dress, however, women of a certain age need to wear sleeves .... as evidenced by this lady and Princess Carolina.

^^^. Agree, although both of them are wearing lovely gowns...they need to be wearing sleeves. Nice to see P Alexandra there for the first time, but really a shame that P Steph, her kids and P Charlene could not attend.

I was really looking forward to seeing Stephanie's pretty Pauline and I had high hopes that she would attend this year...she seems to have raised her profile.

But I don't think any of the Ducruets have ever attended the Rose or Red Cross Balls.

As they haven't attended any of the balls yet, I somehow doubt we'll ever see them there. And if it did happen, I think they would much more likely attend the Red Cross Ball as that's been Princess Stephanie's favourite one during the last years ( I think the last Rose Ball Stephanie attended was in 2003).



Here are two more galleries - with two lovely pics of Alexandra and Pierre dancing:

I wonder why the Palace didn't announce Charlenes absence but some journalist. She was listed to attend, after all.

The third sister is married to a Prince Von Furstenberg and the forth one to an Italian Count.

It was my wonder too. Usually the princely couple/Pcs Caroline enter first, followed by the Casiraghis and the de Massy. But no pic of pcs Alexandra's entrance. Unless she came later. This year I noticed there're a few official pics of the entrance.

Her eldest half sister Isabella is married to an Italian Count, an oil baron; her other half sister Lavinia is married to John Elkann the owner of FCA (former FIAT); and her youngest half sister Matilde is married to a German prince.

So Donna Paola was there. This means that the two lovebirds are officially engaded to marry, although there hasn't been an announcement from Caroline.

Seems like Caroline ignored Paola. Perhaps she hoped in a richer or noble daughter-in-law or both. Besides I think Caroline doesn't like the idea of having Bea's grandmother, who was sentenced for fraud, among her in laws.

I've noticed that Pierre and Alexandra seem to be quite close.

Maybe Alexandra only came for the concert?

Beatrice's brother married fashion designer Marta Ferri.

One of the Casiraghi cousins was dancing with Charlotte. Has anyone ever seen a photo of Charlotte dancing with anyone other than her brothers or females? Seems odd. I do remember reading that she danced with Jean Rochefort, but he is old enough to be her grandfather.

Ditto, ditto. It does have a 'vintage' feel to it, and she is amazing. She'd make a potato sack look elegant.

Charlotte's hair and makeup, amazing. Her dress...I was hoping Gucci had exclusive rights to dressing her. I wonder if she knows she doesn't look her best in Chanel. Would be lovely if she recreates that Giambattista Valli light blue gown that made her look every inch a princess.

I think she looks amazing in Chanel day wear. The beautiful ivory chenille suit with matching hat that she wore to Albert's Investiture as well as the powder pink dress edged in black that she wore to his Nuptial Mass were Chanel, and I was crazy in love with both of them.

It's the evening wear where things are a little less impressive.

Yes the Gianbattista Valli gown was a fairy gown. A pitty she never worn it again. I presume it was a loan she never recycles her evening gowns. I presume they are all loans. She just wears them once. She gives them back and she forgets them.
I never ever saw her twice with the same gown. Never.
All the other "real" royals own evening gowns, they recycle them and they modify them. I think Charlotte, having not a real official role in Monaco she considers not needing evening gowns. Once or twice per year, if needed she just chooses one from Chanel or elsewhere. She wears it for a couple of hours and returns it.
