Last night Prince Albert, Princess Charlene and -surprisingly- Princess Caroline attended the Monaco Red Cross Ball.

Caroline turned to Chanel as usual in a Spring 2013 couture piece,
Although I really like blue on her, I’m not a fan of this gown, it looks
as a see-through dress worn over a white dress. Great makeup, hairdo
and jewelry, though. The earrings belonged to Princess Charlotte.

have to say that even though I wrote this title mainly as a joke, I
find Charlene’s look very much surprising and deserves to be called
The only familiar thing about the gown is its
silhouette. The Colour (I can’t believe it, either) is turquoise and not
the “Charlene Blue” we see on her every now and then, the bodice is
pleated somehow to keep it a bit interesting!

it might look like a design by Akris or Ralph Lauren, it’s actually by
the new French designer Patrice Papa (confirmed by The Palace).

is based in Monaco and is yet to open his atelier, there isn’t much
information about him but the first dress we’ve seen from his work was
the dress worn by Celita de Cárdenas to the Rose Ball earlier this year which is probably where Char has seen him,
I have the sketch of Charlene’s dress but I can’t publish it without
his permission, I think over the next few months -hopefully- we’ll see more of
his work!

wore giant new earrings, from afar I thought they were turquoise
but in this close up they seem to be made of very light-coloured aquamarines or some clear stones. We don’t know
who made them except that it’s NOT Montblanc, we’ll keep you updated if I
get a confirmation.

What do you think of Princess Charlene’s and Caroline’s looks?
