BUT, it's a slow holiday weekend, and it IS a beautiful dress. TLo likes it more than Our Miss Cathy's. ( the powers that be WILL be checking their cards this afternoon..)
From HUFFPO MONACO — Monaco's Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene promised each other love and fidelity in an extravagant religious wedding Saturday attended by international celebrities and royalty, bringing new allure to the tiny principality known for its luxurious casinos and as stomping ground for the rich and famous.
The Catholic service followed an intimate civil ceremony Friday, which saw Charlene officially transformed from commoner into royalty. The marriage of the 53-year-old prince and the 33-year-old Charlene Wittstock, a one-time Olympic swimmer from South Africa who is now known as Princess Charlene, ended a three-decade wait for a new princess.
The last wedding of a ruling prince in Monaco was in 1956, when Hollywood star Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier III.
Saturday's ceremony was attended by guests including former James Bond actor Sir Roger Moore, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and bohemian designer Roberto Cavalli, of Italy. Thousands of Monegasque citizens cheered the proceedings while watching on large screens set up outside the palace, where both ceremonies were held.
Charlene swept along the red carpet leading into the palace on her father's arm. In her sumptuous boat neck gown by Giorgio Armani Prive, her hair pulled back in a swirling French twist and with only the lightest touch of makeup, she seemed to channel some of Grace's effortless elegance.
Everyone will be making compassion's with the real Royal wedding, and yes, with Princess Grace, it mattered........
with Mr. Armani in the audience.
All the young crown heads of Europe and Naomi Campbell with billionaire Russian in tow, wanted an early Summer weekend in Monaco. While the Cambridges rule Canada, the low key Wessexes made the wedding.
I do have one question about the wedding : Why was there a group of children from a road company of THE KING AND I following the bride up the aisle ?
MORE if you want from TLo ( very funny )and HUFFPo
One more comparison to the Cambridges, the new Princess chose to wear white to the party afterward. Again, a beautiful dress, you make the call.
