Charlene Scores Two Fashion Hits in Two Weeks
Did Charlene Wittstock take some fashion tips from her future sister-in-law Princess Caroline? If so, Prince Albert’s fiancee owes his sister a hearty thanks!
Normally, an event like the 4th International Peace & Sport Forum’s gala probably wouldn’t attract too much attention from the fashion blogs. But on Thursday, 2 December, Miss Wittstock transformed a typically uninspiring occasion, and dress, into an OH WOW.
It was the kind of elegant black dress that Princess Caroline often wears, and even the hair was worn in a “Carolingian” style. The jewellery, too, was tastefully simple and elegant. Besides her famous pear-shaped engagement ring, Miss Wittstock wore one other sparkler on the other hand, and a pair of emerald-pearl drop earrings. Even her satin clutch beheld an enormous bejeweled buckle.
The Huffington Post expressed astonishment that a floor-length, A-line dress with long sleeves and a “kinda turtleneck” could be worn so marvelously. The same report included a poll for readers to approve or disapprove of the look.
HELLO! magazine online reported: “The 52-year-old prince couldn’t keep his eyes of his stunning bride-to-be as they attended a gala dinner in the principality this week.”
The gala was held in the Salles Des Etoiles of the Sporting Club de Monte-Carlo to close the second day of the Peace & Sport Forum, which ended Friday, 3 December. Prince Albert, the sovereign Prince of Monaco, is a major patron of Peace & Sport. Earlier this year in New York, Prince Albert received a special UN Millennium Development Goals Award in recognition of his impassioned commitment to sustaining global peace through sport.
Miss Wittstock, who is twenty years younger than the Prince, appears to be kicking off her royal career as a fashion template with a bang. The eyes of the Huffington Post were certainly on her Armani-clad turnout on Monaco National Day two weeks ago.
Does this mean that Giorgio Armani, who Miss Wittstock has admitted is her favorite designer, is poised to supplant the long-reigning “kaiser” of Monaco, Karl Lagerfeld?Filed under Monaco Royals
