Princess Anunciata in Venice

Turns out Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie aren't the only ones visiting Venice this week (more on that later on): Last night, the Hereditary Grand Duke's cousin Princess Maria-Anunciata of Liechtenstein was among the guests at the dinner of the Fondazione Cini, Isola Di San Giorgio hosted on the occasion of this year's Biennale, the very same reason Guillaume and Stéphanie are currently in Italy. Anunciata is pictured above with Prince Charles-Henri de Lobkowicz, whose mother is the niece of the brother of Anunciata's great-grandfather, and Corinne Ricard.


  1. The photo of Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie above is just beautiful - it has such a timeless quality. If it were in black and white and I didn't know better, I'd think she were a Prussian princess in Potsdam, an Archduchess in Vienna or some Grand Duchess in St. Petersburg in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. That hat is such an unusual shape, but to my eyes, it's tremendously flattering to HRH Stéphanie.

  2. The black coat is all right. I can see why it's been recycled. I don't think the sleeves needed the darker black section though.

    Oh my. That taffeta is something. It's not flattering on Princess Anunciata or GD Maria-Teresa. At least there's less of it on Princess Anunciata.

    Brown hat looks good on both GD Maria-Teresa and HGD Stéphanie. Lovely photo with the snow falling.

    Except for the wrinkly fabric, I like the yellow dress. Princess Tessy had the advantage of better lighting and accessories. The yellow didn't look as bright when Princess Alexandra wore it in winter. I didn't like the hat or gloves.

  3. I think the fur (or whatever it is exactly around her neck) helps a lot with that. Somehow it all comes together while I didn't like the fur/hat/dress (especially colour of it) combination on MT very much.

  4. I agree with pretty much everything you said. While I liked the hat on both MT and Stéphanie, I liked much better with what Stéphanie wore the hat. Not too into the brown/lilac combination on MT. The hat Alexandra wore for the wedding was actually also worn by her mother before that. See this post:
