Yesterday Dior’s Cruise 2022 show took place in Athens, a resplendent and joyous celebration of all things Grecian. One of the biggest IRL fashion events since the pandemic began, the show saw a roll-call of fabulous guests in attendance, from the A-list to the royals. One such guest was Beatrice Borromeo, the stylish wife of Monégasque royal Pierre Casiraghi, the grandson of Grace Kelly.
A long-time friend of the fashion house, and a brand ambassador since the beginning of 2021, Borromeo epitomised Grecian goddess glamour in a stunning golden fringed gown with beaded round neckline, with her hair swept up into a Hellenic plaited bun to show off her dazzling earrings. Meanwhile her handsome husband looked equally as dapper in a navy suit and sunglasses.
The royal couple had left their two sons, Stefano (named after Casiraghi’s late father) and Francesco, at home for the evening, instead enjoying a glamorous date night à deux.
They were married in 2015, with multiple celebrations across both her native Italy (including on her family’s namesake island) and Monaco, with the fashion-forward bride wearing five different gowns.
Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri chose Athens due to its status as the cradle of Western civilisation and of European arts, tweaking the house codes and Hellenising them. There were white trouser suits, draped dresses, sporty bar jackets and drawstring parachute dresses.
Other friends of the fashion house from within the House of Grimaldi include Casiraghi’s mother, Princess Caroline, and his half-sister, Princess Alexandra of Hanover, Caroline’s daughter with her third husband, Prince Ernst August of Hanover.
