Beatrice, who is the longtime girlfriend of the Monegasque royal, is a member of the ancient aristrocratic House of Borromeo - a family that has owned the Borromean Islands in Lake Maggiore, in northern Italy since the 16th century.

The floor-length dress featured a dainty racer-front, but the real talking point was the risqué back, held up by two barely-there cross-back straps.

Beatrice scraped her hair back into a bun and sporting minimalist jewellery to let the lavish haute couture look do all the talking.

As guests arrived at the lavish 187-room venue, attire varied from jaw-dropping floor-length gowns, to shorter summer dresses and sandals.

Male guests stuck to failsafe tuxedos, with one gentleman even opting for a fashion-forward scarlet jacket and black trouser combo.

Pierre Casiraghi is the 27-year-old son of Caroline, Princess of Hanover and the late Stefano Casiraghi, an Italian socialite and businessman who died in a speedboat accident in 1990 at the age of 30.
