Princess Charlene of Monaco at the Oscars

So, after some speculation that they would be there, Princess Charlene and Prince Albert did indeed showed up at the Oscars tonight. According to their representatives, they were guests of Robert Iger, the President and CEO of Disney. What’s the connection? Well, a statement from the couple’s representatives explains:

The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and Disneynature signed a global agreement in 2010 to help raise public awareness through films and documentaries on the emergency to protect the environment.

Clearly, they weren’t about to say no to the opportunity. The princely couple was also at the Montblanc Champagne Brunch held  at the Hotel Bel-Air on Saturday. The brunch showcased the Princess Grace of Monaco Collection:

At the Oscars, the couple didn’t go in through a side door, they walked the red carpet and took part in some interviews. Charlene was in an Akris dress and this is the most she smiled as far as we can tell from all the pictures we’ve looked through.

Maybe she should talk to Kate about chilling out and trying to enjoy herself; it’s really too bad that she seems to feel perpetually uncomfortable. It really doesn’t do much for all those rumours she tried to escape before her wedding. This was her general expression the rest of the night, even when the cameras panned over to her and Albert sitting in the audience:
On a happier note, let’s take a step back in time to when Grace Kelly won her Best Actress Oscar in 1955 for The Country Girl wearing my favourite Oscar dress of all time. It was designed by Edith Head and I even got to see it in person at an exhibit in Rome a couple of years ago. I might have even touched it when the guards weren’t looking. It has still retained that beautiful blue colour:
 Hope you enjoyed the Oscars…
