From the Sugah board ... they are truly dillusional!
"Caroline and Charlène seemed to love each others in this photo. I remember seeing a pic of the two in Paris Match in June-July when Caroline looked like she kindly complimented Charlène on her earrings in a very maternal way."
The entire evening sounds like a good idea poorly executed.
I can't believe Caroline let this happen. She was playing in the nightclubs at 17. Many of the swinging Londoners were also swinging in Monte Carlo at that time. Did she forget? So Lagerfeld dressed both Caroline and Charlotte. They should have been in Pucci prints. That's the first thing I thought of was the wild paisleys and swirl prints. The whole event was so "understated" that it missed the point of swinging. Were there any press comments on Pete Doughty? It looks to me like there were absolutely NO celebs or people of interest there. They supposedly had 1,000 guests. Really? There certainly weren't any young people there so I wonder what the older ones thought of ole Pete? What a disaster!
Maybe the swinging part took place after the ball?
Why doesn't Charlotte wear Gucci? She's their new poster girl and imo it's odd to wear something by a rival. Or is this a new variation on the do as I say, not as I do?
ETA: Public is ravingly enthousiastic: Charlene Wittstock and Prince Albert of Monaco: King and Queen of the Ball!
This year in Monaco, the prestigious Rose Ball was held under the theme of "Swinging London". And as always in the principality, they have not done things by half and the ceremony was simply sumptuous. While many personalities made the trip, those we found in the center of attention are of course honeymooners Albert and Charlene! The last time we had seen it was the Oscars, where they caused a sensation. But this is nothing compared to their participation in the Rose Ball. Lovers are more complicit than ever and their happiness is good to see! They have not departed from the tradition to take a ride on the dance floor and they seem perfectly honed to exercise.
Albert and Charlene, a royal couple who really knows how to party!
Welll, I doubt the number of 1000. They hardly made 800 these past years and this year they seemed to have attracted less people then in previous years. In order to get to that number they would have to go down with prices or eventually manage to attract people who draw the rich gawkers/wannabes. They did not attract anyone that anyone wants to brag about knowing. MC balls used to be international, attracting the in people of the time. Now it is a local affair for people who have to be there. Notice that there are no pics of the crowd. The most awkward pic is the one of Charlotte and friends on the dancefloor. They look as if the were lined up there. And it is not the crowd that CHarlotte is usually seen with, but also local friends like Maillots daughter. This is like looking in your local paper and seeing pics of the village ball. Only the outfits are more expensive, though none of them look it. The best looking people were the girls from the dance academy.
I think Lagerfeld's dress for Charlotte is like a pee-a-boo of a short skirt and hip top, but formalized by adding the sheer extensions. When you look at the core of it, she's wearing a mini. I like it. Albert is actually more radiant walking next to her. Of course, she's too smart not to feel a little used for PR and doesn't look particularly thrilled but she's being the good niece IMO. As always, I'm positively and thoroughly biased
Thanks refia for the photos. I wonder, are there any photos of Albert actually looking at Charlene? In most of the ones I have seen she's either clinging to his arm or hamming for the cameras, while he seems to be looking elsewhere. JMO.
gawd WHAT DOES caro have on?? trashlenes face is so waxy, if she is near a flame it will melt. LOVE charlottes dress, isn't it interesting her uncle looks happier and more affectionate with her than his concubine??? GAWD how sad how far this event has fallen, it used to have star studded, important people NOW it looks like wannabes and richetrashe. PITIFUL
