Once again, H.R.H. Princess of Hanover, President of the Princess Grace Foundation, together with her friend Karl Lagerfeld, have designed the concept of this year’s 2018 Rose Ball.
In this way, the 64th annual Rose Ball in the Salle des Etoiles at the Sporting Monte-Carlo will be welcoming ‘New York’ this year.
When Karl Lagerfield thought about how to best celebrate the magic of Manhattan, the illustrator and humorist Sempé, world-renowned for his albums and subtle New Yorker covers, came to mind. That’s how Lagerfield created his ideal skyline, based on one of Sempé’s illustrations.
For this exceptional evening, the Salle des Etoiles will be transformed into an otherworldly ballroom perched atop a skyscraper, offering through the bay windows a view of New York as seen and drawn by Sempé. The tables will be decorated with pink and grey satin tablecloths and centrepieces overflowing with roses in all different colours.
The next ball is scheduled for Saturday, 30 March 2019 at the Salle des Étoiles, Sporting Monte-Carlo.
