2009 was the last year Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie joined Prince Albert at the annual Arbre de Noel for Monegasque children at the Princely Palace without Princess Charlene. Right after the engagement in 2010, Princess Charlene has participated in the event every year except for 2014 as she had given birth to the twins only 6 days before the event.

True to form, Princess Caroline of Hanover donned a Chanel dress from the pre-fall 2009 collection

Although grey and black, the dress is anything but subtle and somehow almost as Christmassy and Prince Albert’s tie.

The dress has resurfaced on Ebay. This time new with tags and up for grabs for US$2,800. The dress’s original price is thought to be around $5,000. You can buy the frock from HERE.

If you had this dress, where would you wear it?
