The hair style is so reminiscent of Grace - deliberate?

^It is. I don't know why are they trying to sell her as a Grace look alike. They should help her to find her own style.

This woman gives me the impression her closet only has summery clothes... Anyway, this LBD was just wrong. It looks quite odd and doesn't flatter her figure at all IMO. The sandals are the opposite of elegance (you name it...).

Now this outfit is stunning, I adore her hairstyle. But don't think the dress and the hair match.

She's wearing a 50s style cocktail dress, so a typical Grace Kelly hairdo could have been the right idea, but...
...BUT the hairstyle is executed very badly, the dress is more 50s Monroe than 50s Kelly, it comes in a very weird wet-looking fabric, it does not fit well, and it throws the fact that her plastic surgery up front was a bit excessive right in your face:

I totally agree, the LBD on it's own is nice, but it doesn't fit her very well. And the hair

I have no strong objection to Charlene & I think she is a very attractive woman, but I can't quite work out what kind of look she is trying to achieve. She has had a few years to both get used to appearing as Prince Albert's escort & experiment with her style, but I'm finding her style an odd combination of Hollywood glam & paired down blandness!

I'm not sure what's going on with Charlene. Just when I think she looks stunning, she pulls out an inappropriate dress and sandals. I just think it's too revealing. Is she trying to be seen or something?

Totally agree with your observation Boris. Ms Wittstock to me never gets a dress tailored to her figure and she does not know how to accessorize. She does look like Ms Monroe. Charlene looks tacky.

I have always said "threadbare " Charlene- she reminds of Vegas. and not Monaco. It has been numerous years and the mistakes continue- Norell said when in doubt wear a skirt and blouse with sleeves and Cw could have worn a chiffon blouse and skirt and how about some earrings of any kind?
This is somewhat 50"s but it does not remind of Ceil Chapman who designed for Monroe.The hairdo with the amateurish dippity do curl is more fourties than fifties.Cw's eyebows need definition and the dress is too short. It looks like a " slip" it needs a jacket or shrug of some kind. I get the feeling that Cw thinks she is "sexy" in these outfits and that is not what is called for at all. I wonder if she will ever wear sleeves ever except on a coat of somekind? THis dress would have looked much better with a chiffon scarf thrown across the neck backwards.
Cw has big feet and from the side the plastic surgery on the chest makes it look like a shelf.........Liz Hurley antithetically looked fab.. .

No speculation about plastic surgery please, that's beyond our knowledge!

I'm very sorry, but I find the photographic evidence obvious and hard to ignore. Therefore I would not define it as 'speculation' at all.
Miss Wittstock in a similar LBD four years ago...:

I see no elegance in this, just "Hollywood". I like her hairdo though.

Nothing special here IMO. Hollywood glam? She wished!

Imo she looks like she tries too hard, the dress doesn't fit her in breast area, and the length of the dress is awkward. The hair is awful but better than in the last event.

She looks like a Hollywood c-list, not A-list at all, so she doesn't even get the Hollywood glam well

unacceptable.
I didn't say us women are a clock, I said we are on a clock. You've never heard of the saying, "her biological clock is ticking"? It was meant as a joke. No need to admonish me.

Not liking this dress. Too tight, too blue, too something. Just not a good look for a woman that has such a great body.

I liked the dress she wore at the GP gala. The colour, the model.
