The Rose Ball

On Saturday 25 March 2023, the Rose Ball will take place under the Presidency of H.R.H. the Princess of Hanover. This annual event raises funds for the Princess Grace Foundation.

A little history...

Created in 1954 by Princess Grace of Monaco, the Bal de la Rose (Rose Ball) is now an annual event that takes place every March in the prestigious Salle des Etoiles at the Sporting Monte-Carlo.

The glamorous gathering of the international high society illuminates the Principality with glitz and sparkle for an evening of festivities.
The Bal de la Rose is a symbol of razzle-dazzle and maintains the fascinating legend of Monte-Carlo that it helped to forge. The aura is such that it attracts many people who wish to be part of the dream and enchantment of Monaco.

Between tradition and modernity...

A radiant spectacle in a fabulous decor, the Rose Ball has a different theme each year with artists and new trends. Big names help organise the creative aspects of the event, such as  Karl Lagerfeld and more recently Christian Louboutin, choosing the theme of the evening (Havana, the Viennese Secession, Manhattan or Les Années Folles), the floral decoration, and the dinner, always with the approval of H.R.H. the Princess of Hanover, in an atmosphere of pomp and sparkle with an almost surreal dimension. 

From glamour to generosity...

The Ball is not just a social event or another excuse for a party. It is first and foremost an internationally recognised charity event with all proceeds and other exceptional prizes (sculptures, paintings etc.) going to the Princess Grace Foundation since 1964. This foundation’s vocation is to help people and children in need by developing humanitarian and philanthropic projects. 

Coming this year...

This year, the celebrated fashion designer known for his iconic red shoes, Christian Louboutin, will be creating a unique atmosphere for the Ball on the theme "Bollywood", in the charismatic Salle des Etoiles.
