Pauline Ducruet sits front row at Paris Fashion Week

Pauline Ducruet brought a royal touch to the stylish proceedings at Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old, whose mother is Princess Stephanie of Monaco, stepped out in an elegant cream dress and a glittering statement necklace, completing her outfit with a chic short-sleeved cape and chucky black boots.


Fashion student Pauline arrived at the grand Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild with her friend Margaux Fouchere, who brought along her adorable dog.

The stylish duo and their furry friend then took their places in the front row to see French designer Alexis Mabille's Autumn / Winter designs hit the catwalk,

The collection seemed to capture Pauline's imagination and she was seen taking pictures on her mobile phone as the models walked the runway.

This is not the first time Pauline, who studies fashion at Istituto Marangoni, has attended Alexis's show with Margaux.

The royal and her friend were spotted watching with interest as the designer's Spring / Summer collection was unveiled in September 2013.

Pauline moved to Paris last year with her boyfriend, former footballer Paul-Noël Ettori.

The couple, who first met in 2011, when Pauline was 17 and the sportsman was 21, are both busy pursuing their respective careers - Pauline in fashion and Paul–Noël as a model and an actor.

Alongside her studies, Pauline regularly carries out official engagements with her mother Stephanie.

The mother-daughter attended the International Circus Festival in Monte-Carlo in January and were guests of honour at a charity gala late last year.
