Carlota Casiraghi turns 36 this Wednesday at a time of tranquility and serenity in her personal life, of great public exposure and an unstoppable agenda. Gone is the time when the daughter of Princess Carolina of Monaco fiercely defended her privacy at all costs, restricting her outings to the maximum. The new Charlotte not only walks the runway for Chanel or appears in the horse race, but dazzles at private events and has returned to the most important official events in Monaco, supporting her mother, Princess Caroline, and her uncle, Prince Albert, in some institutional appointments in which alsoOne of her children and her husband, the film producer, Dimitri Rassam, with whom she celebrated three years of marriage in June, have appeared.
She is happy, full of projects and continues to be one of the ‘queens’ of style with her chic, her beauty and her magnetism that has made her an ambassador for Chanel. All this without abandoning her philosophical, literary and feminist interests. In a debate on reading and women that took place in the fall on the figure of Virginia Woolf, she said that: “she fought all her life to challenge the conventions of her time and defend the ability of women to write and create ”.
she dares with everything and has also made the leap to the airwaves through a podcast, Les Rencontres, in which she spoke in the spring like never before about how the death of her father, the remembered Stegano Casiraghi, affected him. “For a child who loses a very young father, at a time when memory is not yet formed, it is a great challenge that should not be trivialized”, she assured in an interview in the French magazine Les Inrockuptibles. The loss of her father was decisive for him to take refuge in literature and try to find answers in books and philosophy.
However, this last year, if there is something that the sister of Andrea and Pierre Casiraghi has surprised, it is with her return to the Grimaldi Palace. Carlota attended the Monaco National Day after three years of absence on November 19. She returned in a big way, with a most avant-garde metallic dress-coat and with her son Raphaël, who will be nine years old in December, and who is the result of the relationship she had with the actor Gad Elmaleh. She had not been seen in this act since 2017, but she wanted to be with the Monegasque monarch supporting him, along with the rest of the family in the absence of Princess Charlene, who has been away from the public scene for more than a year due to an ear, nose and throat infection.
Later, and with 2022 already under way, Carlota once again left us speechless when she combined two of her great passions: fashion and horse riding. She walked for Chanel in an unprecedented show at Paris Haute Couture on horseback. It has not been the only high-impact appearance of her in a design-related act. In May, wearing a denim look from the French house, Grace Kelly’s granddaughter once again became the center of attention at the presentation of the Cruise 2022/2023 collection. At the appointment, she coincided with her mother and her mother-in-law, Carloe Bouquet, as well as her cousin Pauline Ducruet and her sister-in-law, Tatiana Santo Domingo.Days later, she appeared spectacular at the Cannes Film Festival in a midnight blue dress with a hatler neckline and a bow with a side parting.
Spring has been especially intense for Carlota who at the end of May went with her brothers, sisters-in-law and nephews to the Formula 1 Grand Prix. She also took her little Raphäel there and she once again stood out with a mini dress. Days later she coincided with them again at the wedding of some friends in Rome, in which she was accompanied by her husband, turning the streets of the Italian capital into a parade of glamor.
One of her most recent appearances occurred a month ago on the occasion of the 2022 Rose Dance where, wearing a set of white pants and a false bob, she participated with her husband supporting her uncle Alberto and her mother and even dared to jump the dance floor with her sister Alejandra de Hannover and Beatrice Borromeo at a gala whose theme was The 20s, the return.
