Morocco Rose Ball
Salle des Etoiles – Sporting Monte-Carlo
The “Morocco Rose Ball” will be held on March 27th in the Salle des Etoiles at the Sporting Monte-Carlo. Presided by HSH Sovereign Prince Albert II and HRH the Princess of Hanover, the evening is organized in aid of the Princess Grace Foundation.
For the 2010 edition, HRH the Princess of Hanover has chosen the theme of Morocco and asked her friend, interior designer Jacques Grange, to design and supervise the decoration of the Salle des Etoiles. He has endeavored to convey the very essence of this fascinating realm by placing the emphasis on the original simplicity of the Orient, featuring the light and traditions of Morocco which cast their spell on artists like Matisse and Majorelle, and inspired great films in the 1940’s and 50’s such as the cult movie, “Casablanca”.
It is in this refined and exotic atmosphere that guests attending the “Morocco Rose Ball” will enjoy a show taking oriental arts of the stage, both traditional and contemporary, to their peak. Refinement at every moment, in the bewitching ambiance of a large international hotel in the 1930’s… A subtle blend of artistes from East and West, screenings of rare footage from the Cinémathèque of Tangiers and many other surprises, to create a unique and totally unforgettable atmosphere.

Charlotte Casiraghi, daughter of Princess Caroline of Hanover and Monaco, granddaughter of Grace Kelly, is growing up to be quite the beauty.
She is strikingly like her lovely mother, and sometimes when smiling, looks the picture of Grace Kelly but with brown hair.
At just 21 years old, she is emerging to be a role model of beauty and style.
Here are various photos I found around the Web:
Good genes run in the family.

Prince Albert of Monaco and his sister Princess Stephanie attended the inauguration of an exhibition to mark the 25th anniversary of their mother’s death.
Grace Patricia Kelly was born in Philadelphia in 1929. She moved to New York to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and worked as a model while in school. She went on to star in several movies directed by Alfred Hitchcock and won an Academy Award in 1954 for The Country Girl playing opposite Bing Crosby. In 1956 she left Hollywood to marry Prince Rainier of Monaco. They have three children, Caroline, Albert and Stephanie.
The exhibit features many of Grace Kelly’s dresses including her stunning wedding gown, a gift from MGM, designed by costumer Helen Rose.
The exhibit runs in Monaco until September 23 before it moves on to London.
