Caroline of Monaco shines brightly in a Chanel Haute Couture dress alongside Sharon Stone for Prince Albert’s evening
It was one of the most anticipated evenings of the year for Albert II of Monaco. The foundation that bears his name had everything prepared for the fifth Gala for Planetary Health, which changed places this year, from the Casino de Monte Carlo to the Prince’s Palace. The event is important for the monarch: it sums up an entire year of work for the Foundation and the presence of Hollywood stars alongside the Grimaldis helps raise funds to carry out its mission of protecting the environment. However, Prince Albert is going through a difficult time, with the absence of Charlene of Monaco, who is recovering from a serious illness in South Africa. The Princess of Monaco was therefore on the front line to comfort her brother and welcome the guest of honor, Sharon Stone.
The princess, wearing a Chanel Haute Couture dress from the Spring-Summer 2021 collection, was accompanied by her eldest son, Andrea Casiraghi. His daughters, Charlotte Casiraghi and Alexandra from Hanover, did not attend the reception, unlike a handful of actors and actresses, who came from both sides of the ocean. Starting with Sharon Stone, who kept smiling during the event, and who chatted animatedly with Caroline during the photocall. Alongside the star, who received a Foundation award for his commitment to the environment, many other guests paraded, such as Orlando bloom (who received the same award in 2018), the French actresses Melanie Laurent and Pom klementieff, the Spanish Jon Kortajarena, and the models Sofia resing and Frida Aasen.
From South Africa, Charlene sent a message via her social networks wishes the best to the event (which also involved the foundation that bears her name, including her brother Gareth Wittstock is director). During this time, Pauline Ducruet, the daughter of Stéphanie of Monaco, took the place of her mother, also absent, in the family photo, next to her fiancé, Maxime Giaccardi. A happy family photo but with one of the strangest mixtures that we have seen among the Grimaldis in recent years.
