The best dressed royals at the 2023 Monaco Rose Ball
As far as stylish royal occasions go, the Rose Ball is the cream of the crop. Created by Princess Grace of Monaco in 1954, the annual event takes place every March and provides an opportunity for international high society individuals to gather in an ambience of "radiance and festivity" and, naturally, dress to the nines.
Since the charity celebration was set up by the former silver screen star, it has blossomed into quite the must-attend occasion among the global elite. This year's celebration, held at the Salle des Étoiles of the Sporting Monte-Carlo, is the 67th edition of the annual event and centred around the theme of 'Bollywood', as selected by the Princess of Hanover.

Guests' outfits were nothing short of utterly lavish, and Princess Caroline, who gave her dear friend Christian Louboutin free rein to bring his vision to life, led the way with a stunning silver midi dress.
The lustrous piece featured a pink tinged V-shaped neckline with matching cuffs, waistband, and hem detailing. Princess Caroline's dress was part of luxury maison Chanel's AW12 collection and looked elegant alongside a similarly hued woven clutch by Isabel Deckel as well as crystal-embellished suede pink slingbacks by Christian Louboutin.

Another royal guest who brought the glamour was Princess Caroline’s daughter Charlotte Casiraghi. The 36-year-old wore a glimmering slip-style gown from Chanel's SS23 ready-to-wear collection which featured a frothy, feather-trimmed hem. The Monégasque royal styled the piece with shiny baby pink opera gloves, a white lambskin chain wallet, celestial diamond earrings and glitzy silver platforms.

Aristocratic journalist Beatrice Borromeo, who is married to Princess Charlotte's son Pierre Casiraghi, injected the scene with a sense of gilded glamour with her outfit. The 37-year-old looked characteristically chic in a shimmery tiered maxi gown and a statement headpiece. Beatrice, who is a global ambassador for Dior, opted for a piece from the luxury label's Resort 2023 collection. The off-the-shoulder gown featured puff sleeves, a semi-sheer bodice, a lace skirt panel and flecks of gold all over the fabric.
