Charlotte Casiraghi Photos: In a Gucci Ad, On Horses, and in a Summer Dress

Charlotte Casiraghi is the new face of of Gucci fashions, the company has announced. Her first ad is already appearing in magazines.

Who is Charlotte Casiraghi?  She’s the niece of Monaco’s ruler, Prince Albert, and the granddaughter of actress Grace Kelly.  

Her last name comes from her father, Stefano Casiraghi, who was killed in a power-boating accident when she was four. Her mother, Princess Caroline, raised her in France and shielded her from publicity for much of her childhood, but at age 25 she’s become a public figure on her own.

Her special passion is horses, and Gucci is big on horses, so it’s a natural fit.

This photo is from a jumping event held at the Club Hippique de Nice in southern France just last weekend. Note the cute little shin booties on the horse.

Here’s Charlotte Casiraghi leaping off of her horse at the same event. It’s not clear from our photo feed if horse-leaping was part of the competition, or if (as we guess) he balked at a gate and she fell off.

A shot from a moment earlier, before the leap. (Unless the horse was running backwards and she was leaping on, that is.) Everything worked out in the end, in any case:

Charlotte Casiraghi has actually been wearing custom-designed Gucci outfits in horse competitions for a few years

The difference is that now she’ll be wearing Gucci when she’s not on a horse. (Can’t we all say the same?) You’ve got to be pretty fit to wear those form-fitting white trousers.

Now for some non-horse-related photos. This is from the Gucci Museum opening in Florence, Italy last September:

Here she is a year later, at the 2010 Etam Lingerie Fashion Show held at the Ritz Hotel in Paris:

Paris, Florence, Monaco, Nice… she gets around. Good to know that someone’s living the life out there.
Gucci also released this super-slick video of Charlotte Casiraghi at the ad shoot:
Sure looks like she knows what she’s doing.
One more horse photo to wrap up, from the Gucci Masters Competition of 2010 in Paris:
