Pierre isn't hiding his girl or his family, Thank You Very Much!

But Monaco's Palace Guardians might have some objections to this carefree living being exploited....

No, no! He's not hiding a bit of himself. When Pierre does anything, he does it on his terms, and that means enjoying his life regardless of those pesky paparazzi. Notice the Grimaldi-crest patch on his Nike parka! For Valentine's Day, he whisked his bella, Beatrice Borromeo, off to St. Moritz. The photos of the couple's trip were first posted on the Swedish website, Svenksdam, in the wee hours of Tuesday, 15 February. However, just a couple of hours later, they were removed! Suspect Palace intervention, anyone?

Charlotte lends her name & face to support her friends

Charlotte, albeit taken off guard, strikes
a pose with Olivier Zahm
One of the tantalizing qualities about Charlotte Casiraghi -- the things that drives the Casiraghi effect -- is her mystique. It's the wonderment she inspires by the mere act of evasion. "Are you here for fashion week?" asks a awestruck gossip columnist who happens to come within spitting distance. "No, I'm here visiting friends," says the Monegasque-Italian belle as she breezes away. No, she said. She hadn't come for fashion week, but she came to "visit" her friends, and, well, Fashion Week was happening, so! There was Andy Valmorbida and Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld's thing. And then there was the Purple Magazine crowd (Olivier, Alexia, Elizabeth) to show support to. It's good to have Charlotte for a friend, isn't it?!!!

Events attended by Charlotte in New York during NY Fashion Week
  1. Retna party: The Hallelujah World Tour, presented by Andy Valmorbida and Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld. Thursday, February 10, 2011. 
  2. Waris Loves You party, presented by Purple magazine in honor of Waris Ahluwalia. Thursday or Friday? Charlotte is said to have attended this party, though there hasn't been any photographic evidence, apparently.

The Mannequin Princess
Beautiful Presenter. A bit like turning letters on Wheel of Fortune. Only a classier spin. It is the Monaco Grand Prix, after all!

De facto Princess
Dynastic Duty Calls! Uncle Al's accession and enthronement in 2005 and Monaco's National Day (November 19) are such familial obligations for Miss Casiraghi, who is #3 in the Line of Succession.

Publicity for Charlotte = Publicity for Monaco
So all her publicity should be positive! Because Monaco's economy relies on the principality's image as an exclusive, luxurious, fantastic (but always pristine) playground for the rich and famous! Imagine if Charlotte acted like Alice Dellal!! No, no!! The image that is wanted for Monaco is one of glamour and elegance.

Flawed Princess
Occasionally, not often, Charlotte gets it very wrong. Like wearing the wrong dress to a State dinner. This dress would have been more appropriate for a Paris fashion week party and hanging out with Dasha and Oly! But for Uncle Al's enthronement dinner? Not so much!

Amid Runway Royalty, a Real Princess Goes Unnoticed | The New York Observer

OK, the New York Observer's Daisy Prince says, "Wake up, people!" But Daisy is the one who needs to get a clue! Check out her recent report on Charlotte's barely-noticed breeze through @ the Retna fashion show in New York City.

Read Daisy's Report: Amid Runway Royalty, a Real Princess Goes Unnoticed | The New York Observer

Daisy, Charlotte is not the daughter of Princess "Stefanie" of Monaco! Her mother is actually named Caroline, and there isn't even a "Stefanie" of Monaco! Perhaps you meant Stephanie, as in Charlotte's aunt?

According to Daisy, Charlotte gave her a quick answer to the question, "Are you here for fashion week?" Charlotte replied, "No, I'm here to see friends."

Oh really? Such as? Andy and PC Valmorbida and Mary-Kate Olsen? Well, that's who were in the snapshot on Daisy's report.

The "RETNA: The Hallelujah World Tour" was organized by Andy Valmorbida and Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, son of Paris Vogue's now-ex-EIC Carine Roitfeld. The Valmorbida brothers, half-breed Italians from Australia, are businessmen of the art and fashion worlds. Andy has been romantically, or sexually, or some otherwise linked to Lindsay Lohan. PC is the founder of the Prism gallery in Los Angeles and has been linked to the "Rolling Stones' kid" Theodora Richards. So is PC dating MK now?

Side note: PC Valmorbida is one of Pierre's fave chums.
