3 Ways Charlotte Casiraghi Channeled Her Grandmother, Grace Kelly, On Her Wedding To Dimitri Rassam
Set your eyes on the most beautiful newlyweds from Monaco, film producer Dimitri Rassam and Grace Kelly's granddaughter, Charlotte Casiraghi, who many consider to be the "most beautiful royal."
A big congratulations is due to the handsome couple who tied the knot over the weekend in a civil ceremony held at Monaco's Prince's Palace—the same venue where Charlotte's mother, Princess Caroline, and her brothers had their own civil weddings—and hosted some of European society's most elite.
Though touted to be Monaco's "event of the season," the wedding turned out to be a simple, private occasion enjoyed by close friends and family.
Those in attendance were Charlotte's uncle, Prince Albert II of Monaco, his wife Princess Charlene and their children Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, her brothers, Princes Pierre and Andrea and their wives Beatrice Borromeo and Tatiana Santo Domingo, and half-sister Princess Alexandra of Hanover.
The groom's half-brother Louis Giacobetti and cousin and fellow film producer Thomas Langmann were also spotted.
Completing the family were Charlotte and Dimitri's own children, six-month-old baby Balthazar, seven-year-old Darya (Dimitri's daughter from his first marriage), and five-year-old Raphael (Charlotte's son from a previous relationship).
Done in signature Monegasque style, the festivities continued into the evening with a post-wedding picnic held at the Palace's stunning terraced gardens with a panoramic view of the Mediterranean and concluded with a dinner party (with lots of dancing to vintage tunes from the 70s!) at the five-star Monte Carlo Beach Hotel.
Although Charlotte and Dimitri are now officially husband and wife, many speculate that a more glamorous, religious ceremony is yet to take place in the days to come—a tradition upheld by several of the bride's family members.
The South of France is a popular guess for Charlotte's avid followers as she had spent most of her childhood exploring its scenic locations.
However, more than the wedding itself, attention was mostly on the bride and her bridal looks that emulated the legendary beauty of her grandmother, an American actress who famously wed Monaco's Prince Rainier III in 1956.
Charlotte paid tribute to Grace Kelly, who was then became known as Princess Grace after her royal wedding, in more ways than one, each classy and worth taking note of.
The wedding dress
Charlotte's first look was a feminine number by Yves Saint Laurent (of which Charlotte has modeled for in the past) featuring dove gray lace brocade, quarter sleeves, and a trio of crystal-embellished bows, a look reminiscent of her grandmother's own brocade wedding gown designed by MGM stylist Helen Rose.
There might be decades separating Grace Kelly and Charlotte's weddings, but their similar choice of beauty looks for their special days proved just how enduring their sense of style is. Like Grace, Charlotte opted for a sleek updo done by Paris-based hairstlist John Nollet for her dinner party. Both women chose a fuss-free hairstyle paired with understated jewelry for an elegant finish.
This wasn't so much an ode to her grandmother, but an actual piece of jewelry Grace owned and was gifted with on her wedding day. Charlotte used the Cartier diamond tiara necklace to complete her second look for her reception and paired it with a white satin strapless dress by Chanel.
Charlotte and Dimitri wed after a 14-month-long engagement.
The pair had been friends for sometime and reconnected in the Christmas of 2016 before becoming romantically involved, their mothers being friends themselves, too.
They publicly announced their engagement in March 2018 after Dimitri proposed to Charlotte on a family ski trip and welcomed their first child together in October of the same year.
