The family of Princess Caroline of Hanover was well represented this Thursday, May 5 on the beach of Monaco. The sister of Prince Albert II attended the Chanel Cruise fashion show, surrounded by her daughter, one of her daughters-in-law and one of her nieces. The actress Carole Bouquet, mother-in-law of her daughter Charlotte, was also present.

Princess Caroline of Hanover and her daughter, Charlotte Casiraghi, “roll” for Chanel, and have done so for many years. Friends of the late Karl Lagerfeld, they remained loyal to the French fashion house after the death of the famous designer. Charlotte shares a passion for literature and philosophy with Virginie Viard, the new creative director of Chanel.
This Thursday, May 5, Chanel moved to the Rock. The haute couture house was the first to launch its season of cruise shows. It was impossible for Caroline and her daughter to miss the event. Everyone still remembers the arrival on the catwalk of Charlotte Casiraghi on horseback, during the last Chanel show during the Paris Fashion Week. Charlotte is also the muse of the brand.
For this Chanel Cruise 2022, the beautiful world had moved on the beach so appreciated by Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld. Vanessa Paradis, Sofia Copola, Tilda Swinton, Kirsten Stewart, the K-pop singer G-Dragon or Abd al Malik, were seen with their feet in the sand (or rather in the pebbles). The guests were sitting under umbrellas at the Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel.
With classic tweeds revisited, accessories designed for the activities of the French Riviera, an ensemble ideal for a casino night and a terrycloth ensemble for the beach, the artistic director of Chanel “interpreted and conceptualized Monte Carlo’s favorite pastimes, between the Grand Prix and tennis tournaments,” says Vogue.

The fashion show was attended by female members of the Monegasque royal family. Princess Caroline, 65, chic and sober, wore a white top and pants with a scarlet blazer signed Chanel, as well as a pile of large gold necklaces and pearls.
Surprise, Princess Caroline of Hanover arrived with her daughter’s mother-in-law, actress Carole Bouquet. Carole Bourquet, 64, is the mother of Dimitri Rassam, husband of Charlotte Casiraghi. Princess Caroline and Carole Bouquet are both grandmothers of Balthazar Rassam, son of Charlotte and Dimitri. Balthazar is in 12th position in the order of succession to the Monegasque throne. Caroline is in 3rd position and Charlotte in 11th position.
Charlotte Casiraghi, Chanel muse, accompanied her mother and mother-in-law to the fashion show. Charlotte wore a set of jeans trompe-l’oeil with quilted effect. One of Princess Caroline’s stepdaughters, Tatiana Santo Domingo, wife of Andrea Casiraghi, was also present, wearing simple jeans, a white shirt and a blazer.
While adhering to the casual dress code, Pauline Ducruet, daughter of Princess Stephanie and niece of Princess Caroline, was the latest female member of the Grimaldi clan to accept the Chanel invitation.
Pauline Ducruet is a fashion designer herself, heading Alter Design, an increasingly visible brand. Pauline Ducruet, just 28, is 16th in the order of succession to the Monegasque throne and is the latest to make the list.
