The Princess Grace Awards is a national program dedicated to identifying and assisting emerging theater, dance, and film artists who are at the outset of their careers or at early stages of professional development. Working in conjunction with nominating schools and non-profit companies, Princess Grace Awards recognize the talent of individual artists in theater, dance, and film. All nominees must be nominated by a school department chair/dean or company artistic director. Self-nominations are not allowed. Award winners are selected annually by panels of experts in each field. Panelists review written material in advance of coming together to view visual materials and discuss nominees. Panelists rotate yearly and are selected by the chairs of theater, dance, and film, based on their knowledge and experience in each field.
Princess Charlene of Monaco, 44, and her husband, Prince Albert II, arrived in New York City for the Princess Grace Awards, named after the Prince’s mother, actress and Princess Grace Kelly.
Princess Charlene once again stunned attendees with her lavish attire. On the red carpet she wore a couture gown by the Monaco-based designer Terrence Bray, with a floral art print in various hues. She adorned her evening gown with diamond jewelry by BAUMER Vendome.
