Unhappy

well i don't like this year rose ball dress, lastyear was good on her, these year it seems not to be my cup of tea. it will be best without the flower or the bust almost falling out.

The fashion expert of Svensk Damtidining, Lotta Wretman, thinks that this dress is designed by Isabell Kristensen, who is a friend of prince Albert. She had also designed the "WWF-dress".

OH MY i agree boris EVER!! the one sleeve just looks silly, i might like it with short sleeves (doubtful) what's the busy design on the front, it faintly looks like a hand of cards??? princess haya looks very pretty, love the dress color, i'm going to check her thread for the front. it will be interesting if a fashionista can identify the designer of this frightful frock.

Perhaps it is Prince Albert who chooses her clothes.............He does not always display impeccable taste.......He looks comfortable next to her.....sometimes he even smiles....

I didn't notice the one sleeve on the photos in their current events thread.

I didn't mind the dress until I saw the one sleeve it would have been so much better if it was just sleeveless.

Who designed it??

Sometimes just because it a designer outfit (if it is?) doesn't mean it is good.

That dress is in the Top 3 for UGLIEST EVER.

Charlene is a pretty girl but for some reason she has been looking very gaunt or even ill lately, wearing quite unflattering clothes. Too bad as she could do so much better.

I love Charlene's dress that she wore to the Rose Ball! I love the flower - it added just the right touch and a bit of whimsy plus it is one of my favorite colors. She looked lovely!!

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
Whilst not being madly striking, so far so good.

Charlene seems to be a sort of "hit-or-miss" type of gal...when she looks good she looks SMASHING...and when she looks bad she bombs big time.

That one-shoulder thing hits all kinds of new levels of bizarre! And she shouldn't lose ANY more weight, it doesn't look good on her tall broad shouldered frame at all.

Bingo! You have it in one!

I think a lot of women do not take their body shape into account when either dressing or dieting. In this case Charlene has a quite angular frame and any further weight loss will make her look far more broad and boney than she actually is.

Prince Albert & Charlene at Princess Grace Awards Gala, October 15, 2008 in New York City.

IMO the dress is pretty but not on Charlene. I wonder why she constantly dresses shoulder-free - as an ex-professional swimmer she has the shoulders and the body shape of a man. Massive! The hairstyle is not very flattering either - what is her strategy, to look as much as Charlize Theron or Sharon Stone as possible?

i totally disagree - i thought the colour was lovely on Charlene and i really like the style as it was a departure from her traditional halter-neck gowns. I like the soft curls - it mage the appearance very old hollywood glamour. And her earrings were divine

IMO Charlene looks stunning the in the red dress, her hair and makeup are beautiful and the jewels are to die for. Grace and beauty all rolled up into one. Albert better hurry up and marry this fabulous woman!

The dress is very beautiful, but I completely agree with you about her shoulders. She has a very strong body, and her shoulders are very large. IMO, she should try to avoid the shoulder-free look.
