Karl Lagerfeld Adds Art Deco Twist to Monte-Carlo 2015 Rose Ball

By Paul Joseph

The 61st edition of the prestigious Monte-Carlo Rose Ball takes place later this month, with proceeds once again going to the Princess Grace Foundation for young artists.

Hosted at the Salle des Etoiles event hall at Sporting Monte-Carlo in the heart of the principality, the Rose Ball is attended each year by a star-studded roll-call of high-society guests.

Each year the event adopts a different aesthetic theme and this year it has been designed by world renowned German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, a personal friend of H.R.H. the Princess of Hanover, President of the Princess Grace Foundation.

Together they came up with an Art Deco setting complete with mirrors amid matt gold and white tones, thereby paying tribute to one of the art world's most elegant artistic and architectural movements.

At the entrance, this Art Deco ambience will be evident thanks to the symmetrical arcades in beige and black trompe l’oeil marble and the retro photo exhibition of sumptuous bygone evenings at the Salle des Etoiles.

The Monte-Carlo Rose Ball was formed by Princess Grace of Monaco in 1954. This year’s edition takes place on 28th March.
