Chanel's head honcho Karl Lagerfeld has once again partnered with the Bal de la Rose, designing and revealing the beautiful new invitation (pictured above) for the Monte Carlo event set to take place at the end of this month.

Despite the fact that a dedicated Lagerfeld exhibition will open in Bonn, Germany on Saturday, the 81-year-old creative will be miles away in Monte Carlo to celebrate with Prince Albert of Monaco and Princess Caroline of Hanover, for the annual event which raises money for the Princess Grace Foundation.

Lily Allen has been revealed as the night's performer, with Lagerfeld noting: “She gets a very funny outfit.”

'La Rose Art Deco' is the official theme for the event, which will take place March 28 at the Salles des Étoiles at Le Sporting Monte-Carlo.
