Well, it happened again. My invitation to Prince Albert of Monaco's wedding the other day was apparently the victim of another bureaucratic foulup, this one considerably more disappointing than the oversight that kept me from attending the April affair in England. After all, this one was in Monaco, and the event promised to be as much flashier as the former Miss Wittstock's bridal train was longer than the former Miss Middleton's. And it was considerably longer.
Surprisingly to me, the clothing in Monaco looked better to my eye than the garb the guests wore in England, though that may have been simply due to the higher proportion of glitterati on the guest list. Most of the men who were not wearing somewhat unfortunate cream colored uniforms wore morning dress (France's President Sarkozy was a conspicuously under-dressed exception) in one form or another. Prince Michael of Kent's was the traditional light gray suit for summer weddings. (Photo: Getty)
The other European royalty in attendance were generally in black coats with gray striped trousers. Georgio Armani's however was gray. (Photo: Associated Press)

It would have been a great people watching weekend at the Casino. Oh well.
