My thoughts:

Arrivals:


Princess Caroline with Princess Charlene? Prince Albert with Charlotte? Huh? Were Prince Albert & Charlotte running late and Princesses Caroline & Charlene got tired of waiting so they just decided to go? Where are the boys? And the usual friends of the Casiraghis? Where was Melanie in the official arrivals?

Outfits:

Princess Caroline: Totally digging it. 100% spot on! {Photo}
Princess Charlene: WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!?! It looks like she mixed up her events...and ditch the bangs permanently. You're not a toddler. {Photo}
Melanie: Black? Again? Really?? {Photo}
Charlotte Casiraghi: Playing in Mama's closet are we, Charlotte? Aren't we a little old for that? My first thought was that it was going to be something like in the movie, What a Girl Wants, with the Dress Amanda Bynes is given by her future stepsister with the brown thing over it and the really nice thing underneath and Amanda doctors it, cutting the brown thing to like a cape over the dress....but no. {Photo}
