15 Minutes with Charlotte Casiraghi: The Monaco Beauty Shares the Secrets to Her Royal Polish — vogue.com

Photographed by Mario Testino, Vogue, September 2010 Photographed by Mario Testino, Vogue, September 2010 Yes, there were the clothes—swirling seventies-inspired riffs on Italian boho chic in the form of a colorful fur gilet, plunging tunic, or crisp denim day dress—but when the lights came up after Wednesday afternoon’s Gucci show in Milan, all eyes were fixed on one front-row seat. In town to celebrate her role as the face of the fashion house’s new makeup collection, Charlotte Casiraghi was unmistakable in a fitted black sheath and a swipe of crimson lipstick. The 28-year-old Monaco royal, who has spent several years collaborating with Gucci as its official equestrian ambassador, was handpicked for the job by designer Frida Giannini—and it’s easy to see why. In the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott–lensed campaign, she is all smoldering sensuality. Off camera, settled into a suite at the city’s Four Seasons hotel the next day, wearing a Gucci floral-print top and jeans, she is fresh-faced and glowing with a hint of soft brown eyeliner (a staple in her basic makeup routine) and a bit of rosy blush. At close range, Casiraghi’s beauty is both striking and familiar: With her square, perfectly composed features, she’s a dead ringer for her mother, Caroline, Princess of Hanover;  at other times, her cinematic good looks call to mind the film star presence of her grandmother, Grace Kelly, in her Hitchcock days. In town for just 78 hours, Casiraghi will soon be headed home to her family—she has a nine-month-old son, Raphael, with actor Gad Elmaleh—and her beloved horses. “I ride almost every day that I’m not working or travel [traveling],” she admits of her devotion to show jumping, which she has pursued with intensity in recent years. She lights up when talking about her grey gelding, Tintero—as well as her love of a good lipstick. Here, we sat down to speak with her about her beauty philosophy, her favorite logo-free handbag, and the importance of being fearless with makeup.
