Charlene's dress reminded me of that dress...but Diana's was more of figure hugging dress. But not in an offensive way. I did love Charlene's jewelry and I agree about her hair...its not that exciting...so she is rather limited. But she is showing improvement...and I think her shoulder's are her best asset...she should always wear dresses (weather appropriate of course) where she can show them off.

Oh, yes- I remember Diana's blue Cannes Film Festival gown! I thought that dress did not flatter D's figure because she had a rather thick, boyish waist that was accentuated by the fit of her gown. But I did love the color and style.

I agree about CW's style. I think she is improving and hopefully has put herself into the hands of experts. I love her shoulders, I'd show them off as much as possible if I was her!

too am relieved that CW's stylist put her hair up for this occasion. With few exceptions I think an upsweep is best for evening, especially with strapless dresses and especially when one's hair is that kind of texture.

Hopefully CW has put herself into the expert hands of Chanel and we have seen the last of shiny halter tops like the one a couple of months ago. With the right guidance, I think she looks fantastic.


I agree. However, I don't believe Chanel would be a good match for Charlene.

Looking at her body type and understated style (as seen from the recent Rose Ball event) I believe designers such as Proenza Schouler, Alberta Ferretti, YSL, and perhaps Zac Posen would look lovely on her.

We'll just have to wait and see, right?

On second thought I think you are probably right about Chanel....I like all the designers you mentioned and I love Armani too!

Yes, exactly, I forgot to mention him (although somewhere in this topic I mentioned that she would be a perfect candidate for his Prive collection.) Also, I do believe Charlene would look amazing in some items from Valentino and maybe, just maybe, Emmanuel Ungaro.

Valentino would be perfect for her broad shoulder, narrow hipped build! I can't seem to form a memory of Ungaro's style and would have to check out the website for that fashion house.

Honestly, I think Charlene looked very pretty with that beautiful white dress at the Bal de la Croix Rouge. I like simple things and her dress was crisp, elegant and classy. She did a great job with the ruby and diamond earings and the ruby and diamond bracelets. Her hairdo was classy and elegant and she needs to start looking more elegant as the future princess of Monaco. She seemed very sweet, poised and refined. I give her a 10.

I 100% agree..she looked amazing, the best I have seen her look so far. The white gown against her tanned and beautiful shoulders had an awesome effect, and the ruby and diamond accessories were simply perfect.

Brava!

Hair and Gown

Generally speaking when one's gown is contoured to the body or straight as was Cw's and not wide skirted the rules say to wear ones hair down and when the gown is wide skirted to put the hair up......that is the only faux pas I saw in the appearance of CW at the Ball.

Have to agree about the black coat and the colour being unbecoming on CW. I mean she does not suit these things like Audrey Hepburn did.Her make up makes her look washed out,pasty or something like at the Ball.I think Cw should cut her hair short and discover a new designer to design especially for her if possible.She is almost thirty and she should know a couple of things about colours & the aesthetics that would be definitive for her by now.No one can do this for her; she has to want it herself and she hasn't got that impeccable taste factor because no one has admired anything which she has worn as yet and she could have had a trademark accessory even going already.Cw's style is still non-descript,flat and one dimensional and she has not studied herself to discover what is best for her.
I do not think she is a Chanel gal at all.
The black gown at the Mandela function did not hold me much by inspiration not did it take my breath away.I would like to see CW in an evening gown with long sleeves.I would like to see her sporting a stole.I wish she would stop sporting black as she looks awful in it because she is too fair for it.
Good Luck..

well...

well ...

Not bad the dress of the gala with mr Mandela...
She reminded me an ex gf of PA... The american Alicia Warlick...( year 2001)

Surely the dress looks better on Charlene

I give to Charlene a 7 ... Go Charlene Go, you can do better!

Yeesh...that pink Grecian one-shouldered gown was sooo pretty. But the effect was all negated with that HAG HAIR!! What was CW thinking...her hair looked like she just rolled out of bed! It should have been pinned up!

I like her style and her new haircut.
After the 'elegant chique' Princess Caroline and the 'casual' Princess Stephanie, Monaco will hopefully get a 'less is more' Princess Charlene.

Charlene could easily pull off some lovely pieces if she goes for the right piece. Her evening wear does nothing for her. They are just plain boring. Yes, she might go for the right color but what about the cut? Strapless dresses do suit her, halter neck dresses dont, they make her shouldres look even wider.
So far this dress is a winner too me. Looks like a Dior Couture but I doubt it.Also this was a winner and this peach/pink Dior

Charlene has been looking pretty amazing these days. Recently she attended the Golden Nymph Awards Ceremony in Monte Carlo with Prince Albert. Click here to view several photos of the lovely gown she wore.

I for one adore Charlene's sense of style. Classic, yet with a touch of fun and modern. She's so tall and has a wonderful body and does a great job dressing it. I can't wait to see more. Could we dare hope to see a wedding dress on her one of these days??? I'm sure that it would/will be stunning.
