Rose Ball

This is my first post and I may have messed up. Do the Duke & Dutchess of Calabria attend the Rose Ball. Don't they live in Monte Carlo.

Though I haven't seen them at a Rose Ball before, they did attend this year's festivities. The Calabria's have several homes. I know they have one in Monte Carlo and Rome as well as somewhere else.

Well, it is definitly an attention grabber. Yea, I dont think that dress would be work anywhere in the world besides a circus.

I think her hair and clothes are always over the top. She would be pretty if she would tone it down,

I can't figure out whether it's the color or the cut. I think maybe the cut of the dress would look better if it were all black and the colors of the dress would look better on another cut. But together, they really are distasteful.

Judging by his expression, it looks like Charles agrees with you Danielane: http://s2.supload.com/image.php?get=014601_5.jpg

I think she mistakenly thought the event was Monaco Circus, not a Rose Ball. It certainly did not match with the theme, which is Reggae, and certainly an "attention-getter" attire...

Seeing as to how she probably pays the bills in the marriage, I doubt he's going to complain about anything she wears.

Well, this is what certain press writes.
According to an interview with an Italian celebrity, whose name escapes me now, she referred to this person, so that he could introduce her to a noble single man, because she wanted to add a coat of arms to her name and fortune. She's the daughter of a rich businessman, who died nearly a couple of decades ago. This is how she'd met the man she married.
He had been only just dumped by a well know Italian anchorwoman, instead.

I don't know the reasons behind their marriage, but she's loaded.
