Bal de La Rose 2014: Princess Charlene Wears Akris

Russia might be the reason for many debates these days, but for Monaco, it's the theme of this year's Bal de La rose.


The usual set of the Gramildis attended the glamorous affair!

Princess Charlene chose a blue Akris wool and silk georgette gown from the Fall 2014 collection with S ribbons. Below we see it on the runway in "Cordoba grey"



 she paired it with repeated black pumps and a black clutch.


Neutral makeup and a simple hairdo completed Charlene's look. I'm counting on you guys that you've noticed that she wore her Ocean earrings which are a part of the Ocean wedding gift made by Van Cleef and Arpels. I like this look minus the sheer part of the skirt, it's pretty confusing!


Princess Caroline wore a Chanel Spring 2014 Couture gown and coat (or robe?).


Having had a recent skiing accident, the Princess of Hanover opted for Chanel trainers and used a walking stick to help her walk.


Caroline's hair was styled in a soft wavy low updo and those earrings I know nothing about made another appearance and although they're not my favorite, I think they go very well with the outfit which is not my favorite, either.


Charlotte, too, opted for a Chanel frock from the same collection which was slightly altered from the runway model.



I don't like the balloonish part on the top of the gown but I absolutely love the wrap.


Miss Casiraghi kept everything else minimal with simple makeup and a tiny necklace.

  1. I thought Beatrice Borromeo by far looked the best of the ladies although I am happy to see Princess Charlene wear the ocean earrings and a non-neutral colored gown. I really dislike when Princess Caroline and Charlotte allow Karl Lagerfeld them.

  2. I don't like at all Beatrice, I feel tha th e colour of dress doesn't suits her. Now for, Princess Caroline, she had better chosen something more appropriate to her style. Charlotte's outfit is not the best at all, but she is very beautiful.

  5. Beatrice the best of the lot. Class through and through. Princess Charlene was stunning. Hair, makeup and earrings were great. Dress nice, but with a solid skirt would have been better. Caroline looking frumpish. Sneakers not a good idea. She should try pumps rather. Charlotte looked greasy. Makeup not nice. She looked like she had stepped out of a sauna with a glossy sheet around and her and sweating. One of her rare blups's

  6. I thought Princess Charlene was beautiful from head to toe. My only frustration was the sheer part of the dress...thought it detracted from the total look, which was still amazing.
    Thought it odd that Karl L. was front and center, so to speak, in the last photo. Perhaps he was Caroline's escort. Just weird.

  7. also thought Princess Charlene looked best. Her dress has shape,good color and is rather as exquisite as she is. The rest of the Monaco ladies are all beautiful and more interesting than most royal houses . well dressed with style
