Bal de la Rose du Rocher, Salle aux étoiles du Sporting de Monaco! Xx

On Saturday 23 March, honoring a personal request 
from HRH the Princess of Hanover, 
as President of the Princess Grace Foundation, 
Karl Lagerfeld dreamed up the Bal de la Rose 2013 
for the 150th anniversary of La Société des Bains de Mer.

He juxtaposed two contrasting moods for the event, 
opening with a lavish décor inspired by a Belle Epoque ball, 
and building up to a strong pop vibe by the night’s end.
Karl Lagerfeld also designed costumes for the night's performance, 
courtesy of the House of CHANEL, 
and illustrated the invitation and the menu.
