Princess Charlene and Princess Gabriella share a special fashion moment


Princess Charlene and Princess Gabriella of Monaco made a glamorous appearance at the Montecarlo Fashion Week Prizes on Tuesday, 24 May. 

Princess Charlene revealed her daughter’s participation in the event slightly in advance, posting a picture on her Instagram account portraying the two of them all dressed up and ready for the event. 

The caption reads: “I loved every moment preparing my Princess for her first official event. We’re looking forward to a great evening at the fashion awards,” accompanied by a red heart emoji. 

Both mother and daughter were sporting pieces by Monaco-based designer Terrence Bray, which Princess Charlene paired with Stuart Weitzman shoes and Repossi earrings. The jeweller is also the one responsible for designing her engagement ring. 

The two Princesses handed out prizes to fashion brands that have shown themselves to be particularly sustainable, with names on the jury including Sara Sozzani Maino and Terrence Bray. 

It is not yet known if any family members will be present, but over the next few days, Monaco Fashion Week will see another “royal” moment, as Pauline Ducruet, Princess Stephanie’s daughter, will present a collection from her brand Alter. 

Monte-Carlo Fashion Week is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2022 and has been increasingly focussed on sustainability and rewarding high fashion brands that deliver quality products without compromising the environment. 

The event is returning this year in person after it had to be cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to health safety concerns. For the occasion, the opening fashion show, which showcased the work of Abdul Al-Romaizan’s Ramzen brand, was held in the magnificent Monte Carlo Opera, one of the principality’s most iconic places, which also hosted Prince Albert and Princess Charlene’s wedding reception. 

Princess Charlene has been patron of the Monte-Carlo Fashion Week since it was created ten years ago, which makes it even more special that she chose to bring Princess Gabriella with her in a show of how much this event means to her.
