I have such a fierce admiration for the glamorous Charlotte Casiraghi of Monaco that I often assume everybody shares my fascination. Last night, my friend D. (author of the excellent TV blog TV Junkies Unite–please check it out) disabused me of that notion!
Like Kate Middleton, who I’ve had on daily Google Alert for years, I have Charlotte updates blasted to my inbox daily–just to make sure I’m not missing anything fabulous worth blogging. (Okay, and also because I like looking at pretty pictures of my favorite celebs. Sue me.) When I received updates yesterday about Charlotte and her brothers Andrea Casiraghi and Pierre Casiraghi co-hosting Monaco’s annual Rose Ball (Prince Albert and Princesses Caroline and Stephanie are in mourning following the death of their aunt Princess Antoinette), I was all excited.
“Isn’t she gorgeous?!” I trilled, showing D. my Blackberry like a proud aunt.
“Eh. I don’t get your fascination,” she responded. “Actually, I think she’s really horsey.”
What the what?! Worlds were rocked. Minds were blown.
Charlotte doesn’t look her best in these photos–completely understandable, given the recent death in the family–but I still think she’s one of the most gorgeous women on the planet, and a total Angelina Jolie doppelganger. (No? Just me..?)
