I don't get the point of making unkind comments about looks period

Fashion is one thing, something you can change. Looks are not. I agree Florestane, she is young and her looks will change but may not.

Happy birthday to Alexandra

I really don't understand the need to make unkind comments about people's looks when 1. that's the face they were born with and so the face they have is not something they can control and 2. they're still a child.

The person she is, is more important...
I agree. I also personally believe that everyone is beautiful in their own way. It doesn't have to be about the looks to make someone beautiful; it can also be about their personality. Judging someone based purely on their looks is quite shallow, for want of a better word, IMO. I'm not just saying this to add some positivity to the discussion; but I genuinely do think that Alexandra is pretty.

Alexandra is a lovely girl. She is different than her sister, but saying she is beautiful or not is subjective. Beauty is subjective. How can we say if she is beautiful or not ?

Please remember to stay respectful towards the people you discuss. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, unkind and offending judgements are not reasonable. Thank you!

Maybe she hasn't got the Charlotte look, but, although being the noblest of them all, she seems to be the most approcheable.

Her birthday is in 20th July. Why did she have her party so early?

Maybe to catch all the guests she wanted there before everyone heads off on holiday?

I know it's weird. Her brother's wedding is this coming 8th of july. So why have a party so near your brother's day? Also, there was another Hanover relative who just got married the same days and her father and 2 brothers and their girlfriends are all there but not her

No father present for the 18 years of his only daughter ? Unless well hidden, Prince EA was not there apparently.

What do people expect, EA will not attend the wedding of his eldest son either. Guess he doesnt want to show up among the Grimaldi crowd but party with his own buddies.

Just to add - Alexandra is not a classical beauty but a pretty girl for her age. She looks herself and not artificial what is a plus these days.

Looks like a relaxed and fun party, like the birthday girl.

I second the unnecessary comments about her looks. Plus I do think she is pretty, bright smile and approachable, and looks young for her age. Also if anyone is in doubt that she has her mom's looks only need to look at her Hanover brothers.

I'm impressed on how much Alexandra manages to keep herself out of public view. I'm not talking about her instagram and twitter accounts made private - even photos from her birthday party, whether made by paparazzi or posted on instagram by her friends, are mostly the photos of her guests, not herself. It is a little bit strange for me but also, as I said, impressive.

This is what has impressed me most about the Casiraghi kids and Alexandra. If you get bored long enough to end up in some European socialite's Instagram, you will see photos of Beatrice and Tatiana...as bridesmaids, with friends partying in a relaxed environment. But the Casiraghis, almost none. Pierre has a few photos due to his circle of friends and his races but Andrea and Charlotte would make you think they're recluses. We know Andrea shuns the media, so that's more understandable but Charlotte, in particular, for all her Gucci ads and paparazzi pics has even less social media photos than Pierre. I'm sure they attend events and all but I wonder if in parties they expressly tell people not to photograph them. I'm thinking Alexandra will be the same.
