From January 2015 to 2017 Valerie b. was the exclusive Hair Makeup and Wardrobe stylist to HSH Princess Charlene, The Princess of Monaco.
She met the princess for the Ste Devote celebrations in 2015 and grew a collaboration that led Valerie to create an image fit for all official and private outings: all Palace ceremonies and events, humanitarian missions for Fondation Princesse Charlene, sport events, galas and balls. Also for all Palace and press photos/videos.
During that time Valerie cut and coloured Her hair – using a balayage technique she mastered in the US. For Her makeup applications she collaborated with Dior Makeup to create a timeless and distinguished look, and Her red-orange lipstick became a trademark many recognised: check out this article written in 2016.
She also designed the Princess’ wardrobe and collaborated with Christian Dior Louis Vuitton Celine Armani Couture Haider Ackermann Cartier Graff Chayto and Mikimoto to create unique styles for events.
She also occasionally cut HSH Prince Albert II’s hair, and helped style Him as well as their twin children – Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella – for the Monaco Palace’s official Christmas photos in 2015 2016 and 2017.
