Charlotte Casiraghi, fifth in line to the throne of Monaco and granddaughter to Grace Kelly, may not wear the crown of the sovereign city-state (yet), but Gucci has a prime role for the equestrian-loving princess in the meantime: She will serve as the face for the house’s highly anticipated cosmetics range due out in September, reports WWD. It’s not Casiraghi’s first gig with the Italian label, as she previously joined forces with creative director Frida Giannini to develop a riding collection exclusively for her horseback-riding endeavors and fronted its Forever Now campaign, where she posed with well-groomed ponies and glossy golden retrievers. Here’s hoping the royal shares the spotlight with more baby animals in the brand’s new beauty ads.
We’ve always been a little enamored with Charlotte Casiraghi. The Monegasque princess’ lineage alone is enough to enchant: the second child of Princess Caroline and the late Italian industrialist Stefano Casiraghi, Charlotte’s grandmother was much-loved American actress Grace Kelly. A renowned equestrian champion, Casiraghi also has a Gucci campaign to her name—a partnership that makes perfect sense considering the Italian brand’s sponsorship of the Paris Masters, an international horse jumping competition that took place this weekend. Casiraghi was on hand at the event both as a presenter and a competitor, during which time she donned an interesting accessory: black nail polish. There’s something downright proper about the fashion darling, who seems more comfortable in riding boots than stilettos, so we were shocked—and subsequently impressed—by her bold manicure move (editor’s note: Black lacquers, like NARS’ new Andy Warhol Nail Polish in Back Room and LCN’s varnish in Caldron, offer a slightly unexpected twist on the influx of Fall’s dark glamour-inspired bordeaux bottles). Thoughts on the royal’s tips?
The young Euro set showed up runway-side last night at the Etam Spring/Summer 2009 lingerie show to see a collection designed by Natalia Vodianova. Apparently Eugenie Niarchos and Alexia Niedzielski forgot to call dibs on who got to wear their Boho headband to the evening’s festivities, but as far as we’re concerned, neither hair accessory held a candle to Charlotte Casiraghi’s crimson lip and rosy cheek.
