The 69th edition of the Red Cross Ball attracted more than 800 guests on Friday, including the actress Monica Bellucci and the actor Francois Cluzet. Conspicuous by his presence following his fourth victory in the Tour de France was Monaco resident Christopher Froome. Also in attendance was the founder of Solar Impulse, the solar-powered round-the-world aircraft project, Bertrand Piccard.

Undoubtedly the star of the evening was HSH Princess Charlene, resplendent in a strapless silver dress. At the head of the annual charity event was, of course, HSH Prince Albert, this year sporting a burgundy tie.

Tickets for the Gala cost €1,200, which included entertainment provided by Jinsen and Christine and the Queens. The traditional firework display rounded off the night. The Monaco Red Cross is a major donor both in the region and worldwide. Recently, among many other donations, the association has helped immigrants in Ventimiglia and victims of the earthquake in Nepal.
