I'm bored today...Surfing the web I have founded a lot of nice dress..

IMO Charlene is a very nice gril (she is tall, blond , with blue eyes..) What I think is wrong, is her way to appear.
If you are the wife or official companion of a head of state, you must be elegant and formal.

I don't belive that elegance is due to how many money you have.
You can be elegant also with dresses that are under 500$.

Elegance is when you choose the good dress for the event you will attend. If you are the official companion of a head of state, you cannot wear a dress that make you similar to a las vegas stripper!!

So, I chosed some dresses that can fit good to Charlene.
This is the style that I would like to see on the future princess of Monaco...

(!!!! all dresses are btw 99$ and 400 $ and please note that I'm discussing only the style and the cut... not the color that can change as per personal taste)

ladymichelle your choice of dresses shows great taste and i would venture a little further to say that with a little bit of leg work anyone could fine something very close to your choices at the 2nd hand store(aka thrift store) esp if u r small.
i love how the white blouse with the black a-line skirt would hide her enormous shoulders and would give her a nice shape but maybe she likes dress in her own way.

Thanks Lady Michele great choices and it shows how Charlene with a little help could have looked lovely. You know it seemed this time that she has trying to hard to be glamorous and just failed at it and ended up looking like a vegas girl instead. And there are so many people who would have loved to give her free advice!

yeah...free advice because my butt is truely tired of her vegas show girl look. not that i have given her any real advice except run when u see a tanktop because u look like a linebacker please dont wear that style of top ever again.
who really should be helping her is her special friend cause he looks bad bring a girl out who dresses tacky-yeah folks i said tacky...hmmm i like the sound of that... tacky...tacky...tacky..tacky.....
anyway it doesnt matter what we say because if it does get to her ears i cant picture her putting that advice into practice.
imo the way she carries herself in the pics i have seen-tells me she is very please with her look and doesnt need to change. again imo

And why shouldn't she be pleased with her look? Too many (I am actually very ambivalent about Charlene) people she looks fine. and too others not so good.

Sometimes she is okay and sometimes not okay. I actually think that Charlene dresses like her age group (not that everyone her age dresses like that but you get the point) but she dresses trendy. And she might be okay with that.

Charlene's so called style problem IMO is the following:
1) Some people don't like her and will find fault with everything she wears.
2) Although she is not a Princess...she is following in some very hard footsteps (Grace and Caroline are EXCELLENT Fashion ICONs). I can't imagine anyone these days who could stand up to the pressure. Even the so called fashion icons---Jackie O...Audrey Hepburn...Princess Diana...Caroline of Hanover....had one particular designer that they "stuck" with. But they too had a couple of missteps.
3) Charlene in some occassions dresses trendy..and somestimes trendy is not a good thing for some of the events she attends. The events are more conservative in nature...that's why some of the pics that Lady Michelle provided went over so well :)
4) She might not have found her "grove" yet. Unless you have a professional stylist (and then we would hear more cries of her being a kept woman...but thats a topic for another thread)....sometimes people don't find their style until later on life. I am 38...and it hasn't been until recently that I found a style (less trendy...conservative yet somewhat classic) that I think shows me in a good light. That means for the last 20 plus years...I thought I looked great and well...I didn't!
5) Charlene's body type. She does have a swimmer's body. Broad shoulders(not to criticize just an observation)...nice legs....good abs...is she also long waisted? She is not going to find anything off the rack..and might have more of challenge to find things that look great.
6) Maybe fashion is not that big of thing to Charlene. Some ladies like to dress up and spend a lot of time shopping and putting together a wardrobe...maybe she isn't one of them.

Again..these are just my opinions.

Hi Zonk,

I'm 26 years old, so, I'm on her age group... I do not think that Charlene is trendy.... As I already say, she is a very nice girl (except for wrinkles!!).

I'm very young but due to some personal reasons (I'm the "official companion" of a soccer player, and I'm working as event manager and assistant of a politician) I changed my style.

I do not have the body of Charlene (I'm only 1.64 mt), but in the past I had some weight problems (I was a little bit chubby!!) and I learned to choose my dresses...in order to look better!

I feel good with my self when I wear my jeans and my t shirt... But I cannot do it everyday...
You can be trendy also on jeans and T shirt... ( 3 years ago I met on Miami J-LO, and she was wearing a pair of jeans, and a withe oriental embroidered t shirt..a fendi big bag and a pair of withe flip flop... she was very very trendy)

There are some moments when you Know people will pay attention to you, and expecially if you take part to officials events...
When you became the wife, or the companion of a person that is always in the eye of the camera, and you chose to appear next to him, you must know that the first thing people will do is look to your style ( from head to shoes...).

I chosed these pics because I would like to show, that is not too difficult be elegant and classy, the keyword should be semplicity....

I agree with you when you say that nobody can survive to the pressure to be compared to jacki'o , caroline, and Grace... The secrets is study these women and take examples....

Sometimes Charlene remember me a scene from Bridget Jones film.. the one when she goes to family formal event...dressed as a Bunny... (Palyboy Bunny) ( the problem is that Bridget didn't know that was a formal event...but Charlene knows it!!!)

What people will think if one day I will take part to a show seated next to the major of My city...with the same dress Charlene wears at Amber Fashion Show?

You are right, probably she is working on her style.. but no, for me she is not trendy. She is cheap. ( the dress of amber show, the green dress on the balcony GP last year, the dress on the beach of some days ago... )

My grandmother always says that your dress must show respect to the people you will meet.

M.

Charlene Wittstock has neither style nor fashion and she is not royal so I don't see the point of discussing her looks here.

i like reading postings and sometimes taken part in posting since she is prince albert's "something or other". so, she is in the public eye and should be criticize for her looks and dress. and if they do get married,she better get use to it.
its not hard to dress nice just kept the kis method in mind. which is keep is simple.
it would be nice to have a challange of who could dress the nicest with play money,play event and then vote. i think everyone out here would do a good job because we would take the time to find out what the event is for.
imo charlene dresses more to be notice.and all attention is not good attention which is someting i dont think she can tell the difference, well people i would write more but i have to do house work..

Would you rather talk about Jodie Marsh?


So, Charlene hasn't found her sense of style yet. Nor has she found a good stylist, but at least she's trying to find her footing when it comes to fashion. At least she isn't wearing this little number to an event.


If she did, then I could understand some of the complaints here.

Bork is a performance artist who thrives on things like this outfit. Charlene is not a performance artist. I don't what she is these days to tell you the truth.

That's not an excuse. A bad little get-up is still a bad little get-up.

Bork or Charlene? The Bork dress gave many a comedian a lot of material for jokes by the way. Saturday night Live even did a spoof of it. Bork thrives on the attention and uses fashion as an expression of her performace art. That dress worn at the oscars (I think that's where she wore it) created a media frenzy. She got what she wanted besically.

Well if Charlene is a former Olympic swimmer she definitely has to have wide shoulders and a strong muscular upper body. Also if she's a former Olympic swimmer, she probably had other priorities while training for the Olympics than keeping her shoulders a nice slim feminine size so she'd be more attractive in an evening dress.

Not every woman is that interested in fashion. It doesn't necessarily mean they don't get it; it may mean that they don't care. Princess Anne of Great Britain comes to mind.

hi lillia
i would wear a white eyelet halter sun dress with an aline skirt which would end around my midcalf. white looks very good against my skin. my shoes would be a natural cork color with an ankle tie of fabric-fabic tie would be a natural color. my heels would be about 2in tall. i would wear a blue torquoise bracelet and matching earrings. and a natural & white color wide brim hat. made of straw, of course.
and my hair would be in a simple knot and stright hair bangs.
i would carry a hand bag with a strap that would hang on my wrist.
the bag would be funkie but not over the top.
and yes i have great taste and i would look good & u know that, lol

sounds lovely, semi.

Do you think CW could carry it off?

whoops! oh my --- you said the dress would be a halter top...

I have to revise that a little bit.

ok: here's a suggestion that may work with her shoulders (but I don't know, a think a professional stylist would give better advice than me on that)

Betsey Johnson Ruffled Sleeveless Dress*-* Daytime*-* Neiman Marcus

or these might work too (maybe)

Laundry by Shelli Segal Printed Jersey Dress*-* Shop By Silhouette*-* Neiman Marcus
Chetta B Tunic Dress*-* Shop By Silhouette*-* Neiman Marcus


these might work:
MICHAEL KORS Cashmere Scarf & Dress*-* Michael Kors
MICHAEL Michael Kors Safari Dress*-* Michael Kors
MICHAEL Michael Kors Shirtdress*-* Michael Kors

St. John Knits © Copyright 2002-2007

maybe Bill Blass from the 2007 collection would be good. what do you think?

thx lillia
i like all of the dress you pick but i dont think they would look good on charlene. because of her muscluar build plus the dresses seem better on someone who is young not someone going into their thirties.
but that just my opinion
