Not a fan of the top of Charlotte's dress. It just emphasizes the boniness and not all that flattering on her. The lower half is beautiful.


Beatrice looks every inch a princess. She almost always gets it right.

Thank goodness she isnt wearing the present one. That gown Caroline has on is the most hideous thing I have ever seen at a formal event.

Yes it's different, this event tends to be rather theatrical & and over the years Caroline has certainly worn some interesting gowns

The dress of Princess Caroline did wonderfully fit in the theme of the ball: the Wiener Secession (Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and the likes). The pattern on the Princess' gown reminded to that.

The dress of the Princess of Hannover was really fabulous.

This is the dress: picture

The floral pattern is often repeated in designs of the Wiener Secession: picture

The geometric top pattern is also a standard theme of that style: picture

Two years ago I was in Les Baux-de-Provence (yes, the place of which Prince Jacques is Marquis des Baux) and in the stone caves there (Carrières de Lumières) I have seen the best exposition in my life ever. HUGE pictures of Gustav Klimt and other artists of the Wiener Secession were projected in crystalclear HD quality on the walls and floors of the caves and it just blew me away, with heavenly music from that period. Since then I am a fan of that art form. This was how it looked in the caves below Prince Jacques' marquessate: picture.

Princess Caroline lives just two or three kilometres furtherer from Les Baux, in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. I am sure she has seen that exhibition as well. Maybe se became insprired by this exhibition for the Rose Ball?

Although it's an unfluttering dress, I have to admit that she can "support" it on her. I doubt if other woman could "wear" it.

It all looked like a great evening and night, wonderful to already see Beatrice so shortly after the baby's birth and what a nice idea that Charlotte recycled her mother's dress!


Here are some more great pics:

As you said on another thread, Princess Caroline is not your cup of tea, and you move on without saying nothing.
Unfortunatly your comments are really bad and envious as well. Caroline looked faboulus in that dress she is wearing. It fits very well with the Rose Ball theme. Did you ever heard the Wiener Secession, Klimt, etc? As far as Charlotte is concerned, even without being Princess she looks every inches a Princess, the dress is simply amazing and is a Caroline's one (2000). I appreciated a lot Beatrice first public appearance after giving birth to little Stefano only 3 week ago. She knows very well what royal duty means.

100% in agreement. The Wiener Secession is so much nicer as theme than An Evening In Cuba or something.

I remembered the very same quote!

I can see why Caroline's dress wouldn't be to everyone's taste - personally, I love it - the history, the design, the fun and sheer OTTness of the whole thing. I can't see how Charlotte's very simple dress can be described as a clown's.

Oh well, each to their own.

Yes, it was fabulous and I loved the fashion. I didn't have a particular problem with the Cuban theme last year, I just didn't get a Cuban vibe from either the decor or the clothes. I think the Viennese Secession lent itself better to this kind of themed event. I did like last year because Caroline had her whole family around her.

There were a lot of negative comments about Pr Carolines dress - but I have to say, I like it. It is a dress with a twinkle and a smile- and really a nod to the Viennese style of Klimt. (Being Austrian, I was growing up with the famous pictures....). AND - given her age - I thought she looked fantastic! Well done !

Why is the Daily Mail asking where Charlene is? Millions on people around the world would have seen her on TV last night so it shouldn't have been THAT difficult for them to have found out her whereabouts, jeez!
