I think Charlene has done very well in the past months. She has a great body and access to top class designers and usually choses - or is advised - designes that suit her. I liked both wedding outfits.

As long as she stays away from hollywood style dresses and stuff that emphazises her shoulders she is easily among the best dressed royals on my personal list.

Yes I totally agree with your post Duke, very well dressed, but I prefered someone like Maxima, who is not always well dressed and she is brilliant, vivacious, smiling if not laughing, warm, etc... where Charlene is totally ... absent. She is engaged for nearly one year, she got plenty of time to adjust her position, for me I prefer someone maybe less well dressed but with personality and charisma. So Yes she is very well dressed, but that's really all that she has. I'm really really disapointed because I used to really love her and was so happy for albert, so the disapointed is greater for me. Princess Grace was so radiant and had a so beautiful smile. Life seems to be not so beautiful if you look at Charlene. What sad sad appearance

Charlene seems to be quiet and shy and to me there is nothing wrong with that. I think you would have to sit and spend time with her to know what her personality is like. As for her being engaged nearly a year and being used to her new role, she is probably aware that people are watching and judging every move she makes and comparing her to Grace that can't be easy.

Yes I agree with Rosapru. She has come on leaps and bounds in the last twelve months & has worn some very elegant clothes, but as yet we have only had the odd glimpse of a natural rather than forced demeanour when on "duty" . I really hope she will grow into her role, but I can't help thinking that the Royals who have this ability to "shine" have it from the start & just get better at it as the years go by.

I think we can already say "typical light Charlene colours" white jacket with a light
blue dress - I like it, only the earrings are not of my taste in that combination.

Any pictures of the dress without the jacket. I do like the look on her despite the fact that the white doesn't quite match.

Both jacket & dress are lovely pieces and very elegant but a pity she did wear a jacket over that dress as the jacket has covered up what looks like detailing on the dress.

Hmmmm...she looks exquisite in the second photo, but I am not sure about the fit of that pale blue dress...that looks like the jacket she wore with those beige pants a few weeks ago?

Someone compared CW's personality to Maxima's..I mean seriously...I like Maxima but can anyone imagine her as Princess of a place like Monaco??

Maxima is emotional and exuberant, but she is not elegant at all imo.

And in reverse CW may be too low energy for some, but I think she oozes serenity and elegance.

In other words her personality is perfect for a place like Monaco.

No one has commented on her holding on to Prince Albert, that must be a first!

Well, this is a fashion thread, so there is no need to comment on that

Jemagre, I think she didn't take the jacket off during the event, the agency has added
more pics in the meantime (see the couple's current events thread), but none is without
the jacket.

Very nice, soft colours. I like the dress and the jacket, not sure if I like the two together though.

Charlene looks pulled together and is crisp. But the light colours do wash her out a bit.The hemline of the dress is too short and needs to be taken down two inches so as to be able to bring her back into focus.LOvely gold earrings.

Does anyone remember that dark emerald green evening gown with sequins that CW wore to one of her first public appearance in Monaco?

She received a LOT of criticism for it, and it was shortly after that Armani and his team took over her wardrobe....she has not appeared in public in jewel tones ever since.

So I am wondering if CW has decided, or been advised...to stick with a neutral palette due to her very fair coloring and to avoid jewel tones altogether?

Charlene Wittstock yesterday, May 18, at the presentation of jewels in Monaco.

So far there are only pics of the upper part, but I think it looks good on her,
the colours and print and the well-chosen accessories are nice. Her favourite
dress cut as to the naked shoulders , she seems to feel comfortable with it.

Yes I like this look, but most importantly she looks far more relaxed and comfortable.

This week Charlene has recycled her dots dress from April, this time without a coat, for my
personal taste it looked better together with that coat as the dots are a bit too much for
her.


** Pic ** Same dress on April 23 **


And today, May 19, Charlene attended the amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS Gala in Antibes, France.

A very elegant look!

Charlenes gala dresses are great, simple, elegant and very fitting. She should stay away from bare shoulders though, this dress offers an elegant design in that respect.

PERFECT. PERFECT. PERFECT... She is beginning to rival CP's Letizia and Maxima in glamming it up for evening events!

CW...please no more botox on your mouth..if that is indeed what you have done.

I don't know ANY women who look good or normal after using that crap.

Love it. I like the detail in the upper part of the dress, even the crystal(?) belt.
