I agree with all the sentiments expressed here. This magnificent masterpiece deserved a much worthier and regal debut (worn as a tiara) -- although I'm really happy to finally see it on her (head). As much as I like PC, I do question her and her advisors' decisions/choices at times. Missed opportunity indeed, as Duc_et_Pair pointed out...

The way that it's placed on her head though -- and I'm in the minority here -- is quite interesting for me. Very modern. It frames her gorgeous face and works well with the short hairstyle. As for the Ocean Tiara itself... 1,200 stones (70 carats) and designed/made by VC&A... what's not to love!?

I am not sure how I feel about the picture or the tiara.
The point that the tiara has -in my opinion is so unflattering.
I personally think the tiara is so much better as a necklace.
I dislike the pose and the picture in general as she looks too seductive for me.
Charlene is one of the most beautiful royal consorts in Europe if not in the world. It's a little odd to see her in a pose looking as if she is wearing simply a silk blanket "that has to be help on".

I have to say I agree wholeheartedly. I think this was definitely not a good move and think that the Monaco Palace PR team need a kick up the proverbial for even countenancing it.

Charlene needs something to make her shine in her own right. At present she lacks gravitas and shoots like this don't help.

The last picture was the best. The most natural image.

I don't mind the new tiara, but tiaras as such are not my cup of tea, really. But I liked Charlene's wedding tiara very much; I thought it was very "Charlene' in that it was stylish and there wasn't too much of it.
I'm a great fan of earrings, and Charlene has some nice ones. But I also like her minimalistic style very much; it's simple and classy.

If she hadn't done the "sprawl" with satin (sheets?) appearing to wear nothing but the tiara it would not have been so bad, especially as she has never actually worn it in public.

That being said, I loved the way she wore it with the gowns. It was a unique style and very "Charlene". I wonder if we will ever get the opportunity to see it "in action".

It looks magical with those enormous diamond studs.

I find a tiara is something that requires long hair to sit nicely. For me, they don't work with short hair. And that's why I never thought tiaras looked "right" on Diana either. For a tiara, in my book, you need long hair!

The photoshoot is great, I just dont get that the tiara was included, Pamela Anderson hair doesnt look good with it at all.

All the photos of the princesses and queens have a lot of photoshop.

The photos of Charlene are beautiful.

Thank you for posting the link to the rest of the pics melina premiere. They confirm this is very much a fashion shoot. (Out of interest why in your post do you "laugh a lot")?

Thank you for the other images, Melina! :) It's a beautiful fashion set, and I love how the tiara looks with her short hairstyle. PC is so high fashion...

Agree with all the previous posters about weird outing of the tiara on common magazine, just wearing a bedsheet??
The tiara itself is unique and magnificent. I do think it suits her and can be worn many ways.

P Charlene looks beautiful and elegant in the pics where she wears the formal gowns with her tiara. I quite like this tiara, it is modern and different and designed specially for her. I would love to see her wear it for some formal occasion.

As to the pics appearing in "Hola", I think Monaco has always been slightly different to other Royal houses, maybe less formal...maybe this is why the PR team allowed this.
