Monaco was magical!

Here I am at the Dubai International airport, waiting for my flight to Mumbai. I have still to recover from the magnificence of the charity ball organised by the Grimaldi family in Monte Carlo. Ever since Princes Grace started this tradition, The Rose Ball, as it is popularly called, attracts the top international names across the board and is one event that  strongly marks the  crowded Monaco social calendar (over 600 events in 365 days!) and heralds Spring. Well... we all know what happened to Spring in Europe this year! But I was lucky to enjoy two very sunny and glorious days at a destination that defines glamour. The Ball itself ,was designed by a legend - Karl Lagerfeld. And was his tribute to the Belle Epoque. Naturally, it was opulent and creative, extravagant and magical. I tried hard to meet Monsieur Lagerfeld, but the security cordon around him was impoaaible to crack. I also tried to grab a few shots of the exqisitely stunning Princess Charlene - same story! Toh kya hua? The India table was well represented. We wore our beautiful sarees with pride. Our Ambassador looked pleased. Princess Diya Kumari of Jaipur looked splendid in red.And we also had a  wow-wow Bond Girl ( Casino Royale) at our table, all thanks to Patrick Medecin, Monaco's Ambassador to India.  I have a feeling, India and Indians will be the new darlings of this jewel of a Principality soon. As of now, I spotted several Chinese billionaires. And of course, the Russian Oligarchs clad head to toe  in Sable. Mink. Silver Fox. Chinchilla.
Great pics coming up. Raise your hands and say, "Oui!"

Hello Shobha,

Hoping to see more of you in those upcoming pictures. It's just that I have rarely seen you wearing sarees except one or two talk shows..even there only the your upper torso was visible as you were seat.

Looking forward :)
