Albert's Charlene is the epitome of a princess-in-the-making in NYC

16 OCTOBER 2008
It's the second year running Charlene Wittstock has accompanied Prince Albert of Monaco to New York for a high-profile gala.

And the elegant South African once again made a dazzling impression on the city's movers and shakers, among them Hollywood stars Glenn Close, Ted Danson and Christopher Walken.

Charlene, a former Olympic swimmer with a sure sense of occasion, wasn't a bit overawed by the glittering company which had gathered for the presentation of awards founded in honour of Albert's former actress mother Princess Grace.

Mingling with guests besides her tuxedo-clad partner, the royal sweetheart sparkled in a one-shoulder scarlet gown. She completed the show-stopping look with a striking new hairdo. Her blonde mane had been styled into soft curls about her face instead of her usual chignon.
