Charlotte Casiraghi & Princess Caroline In Chanel Couture – Bal de la Rose du Rocher

Charlotte Casiraghi & Princess Caroline In Chanel Couture - Bal de la Rose du Rocher

Charlotte Casiraghi also attended the ‘Bal de la Rose du Rocher’ in aid of the Princess Grace Foundation, which celebrated the 150th anniversary of the SBM at Sporting Monte-Carlo in Monaco on Saturday.

Every time I feel like I’m getting the obsession many people have over Charlotte’s style, this goes and happens.

She may be wearing a Chanel Couture Spring 2013 gown, but she looks like a pink fluffy bird to me.

The fuchsia-pink lips are too heavy, and the black accessories also weigh down the look.

All in all, this is an epic fail for me.

Charlotte Casiraghi In Elie Saab – ‘Cartier Exhibition’ Gala Presentation


Charlotte Casiraghi attended the ‘Cartier Exhibition’ gala presentation at the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum in Madrid, Spain, two weeks ago.

She opted to wear an Elie Saab Fall 2012 gown for the occasion.

Whilst grey is admittedly not my favourite colour, this silk-chiffon draped bustier gown with a matching shawl is beautiful on Charlotte.

Charlotte didn’t wearing the matching buckle belt; instead she accessorized with a stunning Cartier choker, a slate-grey clutch and shimmering silver sandals.

A chic updo and flawless makeup completed her look.

I have often wondered why Charlotte’s style is so well regarded, having never been that excited about her red carpet looks, but here, I get it.

You can buy Charlotte’s Elie Saab gown in coral from Boutique 1.

Beauty Trend Spotting: Beautiful, Beautiful Blue Eyes

Monagesque heiress Charlotte Casiraghi was bang on trend when she matched her eye makeup to her cobalt-blue silk Gucci gown this week.

Her inspiration surely came from the fall/winter 2012/13 catwalks where makeup artists used a profusion of azures, Yves Klein blues and ceruleans to create eye-catching looks.

At Anna Sui, makeup artist Pat McGrath traced on a thick line of electric blue on the eyelid, extending it slightly up and past the outer corners and at Stella McCartney she finished off the otherwise pared-back beauty look with a heavy coat of electric-blue mascara.

For Prabal Gurung MAC make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury applied teal hues to models’ lids using diagonal brush strokes to mimic the feather pattern of a bird, while at L’Wren Scott Lancome’s Aaron de Mey created a hazy sapphire eye by smoking navy liner along the upper and lower lashes and blending it up above the crease.

While many may balk at the idea, Tom Pecheux, Creative Make Up Director for Estee Lauder, assures us: “Blue eye shadow is flattering on nearly everyone—every skin tone, eye color, hair shade.”

For a more wearable blue eye M.A.C senior artist Keri Blair recommends using fluffy brush to apply M.A.C’s new Heavenly Creature Mineralize Eye Shadow in Bright Moon.

“Dampen the brush to achieve more opacity,” says Blair, “Or for a powdery, see-through finish, you can apply the product dry.” But the aim is to achieve a “watercolor-like wash” on the lid.

Next, for a dash of blue pigment, “Apply M.A.C’s Heavenly Creature Mineralize Eye Shadow in Sky using a soft angled brush, fashion a ‘v’ shape in the outer corner,” says Blair. “This adds dimension and gives a playful quality without being too graphic.”

Finally, to add more depth and definition along the upper lashes, use a black gel liner. Blair recommends M.A.C Fluidline in Blacktrack using a stiff angled brush.

“Follow the natural shape of your eye, keeping the line clean and precise but without a wing. A cat-eye is beautiful, but pairing it with teal shadow can make it look 1950s-esque and dated.”

Charlotte Casiraghi In Gucci – 2nd Annual Gucci Award for Women in Cinema

Charlotte Casiraghi looked simply amazing at the Gucci Award for Women in Cinema event at the Hotel Cipriani in Venice, Italy, on Friday.

Knowing full well that often less is more, Charlotte opted for a Gucci (naturally) one-of-a-kind cobalt blue silk gown.

The dress, which shows off her svelte athletic body to a tee, featured a cutaway neckline and open back.

Charlotte garnished the look with blinged-up earrings, black suede and patent high-heeled sandals and a black stingray Gucci clutch.

Gucci and Vanity Fair Cannes Dinner Party

Gucci and Vanity Fair hosted a dinner party at the Hotel du Cap followed by a party to celebrate the world restoration premiere of Sergio Leone’s ‘Once Upon a Time in America’ during Cannes Film Festival yesterday evening.

Salma Hayek, Naomi Watts and Gemma Arterton were joined by the following attendees:

Li Bingbing: The Chinese actress looked beautiful wearing a one of a kind pale blush kimono sleeved gown with black beaded sash belt. Her look was accessorized with a black Gucci clutch and Gucci jewels. An elegant updo and blush lip colour to match her dress completed her look.

Frida Giannini: The Gucci designer opted for a one of a kind black strapless silk crepe gown inspired by the Fall 2012 collection. With a black velvet waistband accenting her dress and a chiffon overlay, we got a pop of colour via her red nail.

Natasha Poly: The blonde beauty looked stunning again, wearing a one of a kind Gucci pale pink beaded halter neck gown with an open back and plunging neckline. Working a supermodel pose, she opted for kohl-rimmed eyes and a nude lip colour. A Gucci satin box clutch and champagne Gucci sandals completed her look.

Jennifer Connelly: The actress wore a shimmering emerald green Gucci one of a kind short sleeved cocktail dress. Her paillettes-covered dress was styled with a small Gucci gold box clutch, and black velvet peep toe Gucci ‘Delphine’ sandals from the Spring 2012 collection.

Bérénice Béjo: Where was this dress yesterday when Bérénice needed it? The actress wore a Gucci Pre-Fall 2012 gown which differs from the look book version which is sleeveless. Her much improved gown has a plunging neckline and emerald beaded embroidery around the waist. Emerald Chopard jewels and a wavy updo perfectly complemented her look.
