True...she is not being very lucky when it comes to interviews...let's see how this develops.

Now, explain to me that they are not trying to sell her as the next Grace...they are dressing her up like Grace all the time!

I find this picture a little sad - any character that Charlene has has been airbrushed away. Yes she looks elegant & yes the jewellery is stunning, but this portrait does not present an interesting individual, but rather as Nathalie suggests a Grace clone. I'm sad because Charlene is allowing herself to be presented in this way - she probably thinks it's the way to go & no one seems to be advising her otherwise.

I see no resemblance of CW to Grace at all.I seriously doubt that she is also imitating her. I highly doubt that Grace would have worn that necklace as it has "bling" to it. There are apparent differences in CW's approach to things. Grace had "magnetism" and CW has "charm" We are all constantly doing "Grace" things but we are not the lady herself.
In this portrait cover of CW which is tastefully done, I would have loved to see Cw with a twinkle in her eyes and an indication that a smile is on the way.

That does not look like Grace at all.

The photshopping is horrible. Why does her face look like that...she has more of a round face. I also agree that Grace would never wear anything like that...its too too much and Grace was minimal and classic. She showed a lot with less.

And for the love of all that is Holy....I am at a loss of what people expect people Charlene do and dress. She is a tall blonde...like Grace...Should she dye her hair...wear black all the time, etc.

People speak as if Charlene as if she has Grace pictures and dolls in her room and she lives to be Grace. Honestly, sometimes it looks like the only people bringing up the constant Graces references are the Grace fans and the press.

I maintain that the way Charlene is photographed here is a deliberate attempt to portray in the semblance of Grace. And no she doesn't "look like "her, but that is my point. I think the magazine has sought to picture her in this way, & for what ever reason Charlene has allowed this to happen. I don't for one minute think that she should dye her hair, or that she worships the image of Grace, but I regret that she has remodelled her looks to the extent that she has lost her individuality. (And Jaya, Grace did wear a lot of "bling" before the term was invented.)

Yes!! Grace would have worn that tacky dress and jewelry, In a disguise party!! Indeed, it reminds me of a picture of Grace with a veil and an enormous dress, I think it was pink, anybody remembers?

Now, that insuferable expression is something permanent in her face. I wonder if it is because of so many surgeries and botox that she cannot smile

For me...Charlene hasn't lost her individuality...its moreso of a woman who is about to complete a complete lifestyle change. She doesn't know what suits her.

Much like Diana when she first joined the BRF she is looking for a style that fits her. Diana towards the end of her life style wise was a total different person from the person who wore the blue suit in February 1981.

Yes but Diana was quite a few years younger than Charlene, & had much less than a year to get used to her life change. I think an interesting contrast could be with Crown Princess Mary who managed the change without losing her way.

Funny that one of the articles in this issue of Tatler mentioned along
side the front picture of Charlene is "In Praise of Social Climbing" !

Yes but for all intents and purposes...Charlene has spent the last several years in and out of a pool.....and therefore has had less of an occassion to dress up. With that in mind.....I think Diana and Mary upon their arrival to the world stage have more in common with Charlene.

Let's face it...unless you grew up being a part of the Social Register and always getting invites to the type of events that Charlene now finds herself in...you are going to be searching for a style.

In that sense she differs from Charlotte, Tatianna, Carolina Herrerra Jr., who grew up with money, and an expectation that they would have a public social life.

i am not going to join Charlene pity party she have been in Monaco long enough to make friend or find her way this just prove some of the people on this forum ideas that she was waiting for the ring first before she was willing to do anything. come on even princess Mary have friend i just saw a photo of her shopping and relaxing with her friends i think non of them are jealous of her becoming Queen of Denmark. if Charlene is not going to deal with her own issues in her own country Monaco how is going to bring gladmour and the respect and everything else that all other princess have done for their adopted country. she might as well hide in the palaces and keep worry her self pity. i am sorry where is the jealousy from Albert? i don't think they are any women who are line up for him expect if he is George Cooley. any who Monaco is a tiny country yes there is money but not a enough as in other country she is not going to be a Queen just a princess of Monaco, she need to relax get off her high horse and start find way to be life of the party not the one that hide at the corner feeling sorry for herself. if you want to make friends you need to make some adjustment in personality not just your body or faces that need the adjustment. p.s the she need to stop talking to the media instead find a way to turn this around less talk more action.

That Tatler's cover is horrible! Grace would look gorgeous on such cover but not Charlene. Charlene doesn't look like she. She should be herself. But I have to say she looked beautiful od Victoria's wedding.

Cool

Even if the Telegraph article took parts of her interview from Tatler, I would say that Charlene needs an advisor to help with interviews. For instance, Charlene needs to learn what to reveal to the interviewer and when to hold back and stay quiet or use diplomacy and tact. Even if her statements were possibly taken out of context, (sorry to use a tired cliche), she comes off as a bit whiny and petulant.

You know, it is not so so serious what she says, but what she thinks. She can learn how to handle the press, how to say what is correct. The important thing is she thinks people envy her, feel jealous. I think this woman needs to calm down and keep her feet on the ground. After all, she´s nothing on her own merit.

Rosana, do you really mean that CW is "nothing on her own merit"?

Perhaps that's what many people say about her, and, if so, it won't help her one bit.
On the contrary, it will make her very insecure and uncertain.

The only thing which she can rely on is the fact that PA seems really proud of her.

I know now, ecspecially in this tattler photo, who she resembles not Grace but that girl from the tv show "Friends" the tall one that acted kinda goofy. Take a good look.

The overall feeling if you will that i get from looking at this photo is that she is playing "dress up" her ranking, her wealth, her stature is not indicitive to being portrayed as a woman of substance. Whoever was behind this cover shoot really did a poor job, presenting her. Maybe it was her idea.

Come on, she was a member of a swim team, not a sociallite. Look at her nose, it looks like it was pasted on.
