Marina Bay Sands Grand Ballroom
For one night only, the glitz and glamour of the Monaco municipality was brought to our shores for the opening of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation Singapore branch. A fund-raising gala was held, themed Ball in Monaco, and attended by their Serene Highnesses Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco. Singapore's high society came dressed in their finest to enjoy a four-course dinner prepared by three-Michelin-starred chef Guy Savoy. The night's programme also included a fashion showcase by Chinese couturier Guo Pei and an impressive ballroom dance performance by society sweetheart Chiang Yu Lan and her dance partner Domen Krapez. To raise funds for the foundation, 13 items — including an Andy Warhol artwork donated by Prestige — were auctioned off to the highest bidders.
