F1's Jenson Button is special guest at gala hosted by Prince Albert

26 MAY 2009
Formula One comeback kid Jenson Button just had time for a quick wash and brush-up before dashing to the royal ball held in honour of the Monaco Grand Prix winner with his beautiful girlfriend Jessica Michibata.

With the thunderous applause of the race crowd still ringing in their ears the young couple found themselves hosted by Prince Albert and his elegant companion Charlene Wittstock, uber elegant in a midnight blue, deeply decollet gown.

The evening was clearly the icing on the cake for Jenson, who's only the sixth Briton to win in the principality since 1950.

Meanwhile his lingerie model love, stunning in a flattering Herve Leger bandage dress, also seemed thrilled with the royal reception.

It wasn't a foregone conclusion that her guy would win, but luckily Jessica had packed the sexy, thigh-skimming number just in case.

She had reason to be upbeat - the 29-year-old Briton won four of the first five fixtures of the championship before Monaco and is enjoying the season of his life after a few lacklustre years.

Their night out must have been something of a reward for the 24-year-old beauty, who's the daughter of an Argentine father and Japanese mother, as she's been down in the pit lane at every event cheering him alongside his mum Simone.
