St. David’s day gala on the 1st of march at the Hotel De Paris in Montecarlo.
The gala that was hosted by the Monaco Wales Association headed by Mark Thomas, Prince Albert’s close friend, raised 75,000 euros for Fondation Princesse Charlene. Last year, the gala’s auction included a bid on a private swimming lesson with Princess Charlene, according to Monacolife.net, this year the bid was on a wine tasting and barbecue for eight people at the country home of the Prince and Princess (Roc Agel?) during the Monaco Grand Prix,
Charlene was reported to have joked that the prince will do the cooking
while she will need help with the washing up. More photos of the event HERE.
Dawn Boyle, the founder of the House of Thara presented the princess with two crystal bottles of perfume full with HOT’s (House of Thara) two creations, Pink Gold and White Gold. Dawn who wore a Wolford
cocktail dress told us that Charlene prefers Pink Gold because it’s
inspired from the East and tends to stay on clothes all night.
You can order your own Pink Gold and/or White Gold from HERE.
the evening, Her Serene Highness donned a spectacular Christian Dior
gown. Dior’s PR seems to be pretty busy with the fashion week and the
Oscars so the confirmation this time came from the Palace who did not
confirm the designer of Charlene’s jewelry!
You might remember the pattern of Charlene’s bodice from the Dior pumps she wore to the MONAA gala last November.
the photo with Dawn the dress appears to have a draped back, the whole
frock reminds me of the other Dior number she wore to the 2012 Red Cross Ball even though this time’s frock is clearly based on looks from the fall 2013 collection. I really like the draping on the skirt and the textured fabric.

The earrings and the ring were both worn at the Monte Carlo Boxing Bonanza last month, I still don’t know who the designer is but it’s not Van Cleef and Arpels, Cartier, Montblanc, Tabbah or Lorenz Baumer. Any guesses? Let me know!
On the 5th of March, Charlene de Monaco attended the Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 fashion show in Paris where Nicolas Ghesquière showcased his first collection for the brand.
Charlene wore a huge black jacket, leather pants and pointed-toe pumps.
Good news 1: I love the makeup. Bad news 1: I hate everything else (except the bag). Good news 2: Louis Vuitton will show the resort collection in Monaco Next May!
