I fear that is a Chanel dress. It reminds me the ones worn at PA wedding.

First I thought it is an iridescent blue taffeta, but instead of iridescent it is just a little little little bit indecent, but not naughty....

Yuck, this reminds me why I hate everything that Chanel Couture has to offer these days.
She's much better off with Valli, or even Gucci.

The dress has already been identified

Horrible as the dress may be, Charlotte wears it much better than the model.
Chanel really isn't what it used to be.

I like the dress minus the weird ruffle thing at her waist. I don't mind the neckline or the see through bottom, but that thing around her waist has to go!

Its quite odd, most especially around the waist.

Charlotte should stop wearing Chanel Haute Couture. Really.
I understand she is friends with Karl and all, but c'mon, she has lots other designers she could use!
The colour was lovely, but the shape and material...i don't know.
I liked her hairdo though.

Awful dress, just because one is thin and beautiful doesn't mean everything looks good on you.

Washed out color for such a young lady IMO. I don't really care for the dress, she wears it better than the model but it doesn't suit her. I would like to see someone much taller in it. I also think that the bottom part shouldn't have been sheer, the blocking of sheer and not I think shortened her.

As bizzare choice as Caroline. Of course in Charlotte's case, her face saves everything.

So true, when you look at her face it just overshadows some of the questionable outfits she wears!

PC of H's design did look like a 60's dress. One of the few that did.

The color is stunning, it's like her eyes color, but the design is ugggh. If this is how the haute couture should to be, I perfer then to wear an ethnic dress bought from a bazaar, it will look more sophisticated ;-)

I actually like the dress. It reminds me of the sea... its colour, its transparencies make me think about the water blue, it's shape moving around Charlotte as swinging waves... even the ruffle around her hips remind me of the foam bordering of the waves. I don't know, a certain sense of freshness comes to my mind every time i look at the dress...

This description makes me think that the dress might perhaps fulfill its true potential best when worn by a model in a commercial for a new shower gel.
Due to its rather unappealing expressions, IMHO Miss Casiraghi's face didn't make up for the shortcomings of the dress on this occasion:

Unfortunately, a grim face and an unattractive gown don't make a good mix. The camera can't always catch her smiling and appealing!

Not a fan of the dress but I love the makeup and hair. The hair is perfect.

I have to be honest when I first saw Prince Albert with that older lady I didn't know who she was?! Then a close-up revealed a young lady. Charlotte Casiraghi to be exact.

I like the dress, but like somebody else mentioned previously it resembles the one she wore at Prince Albert's pre-wedding concert, a white one, which I thought too young for her at the time, and too frou-frou. Now this one is the same style but too old for her, lol. Anyhow, between the two, I prefer this one. :)

Still, nothing and I mean nothing compares to the fairytale princess one she wore at Prince Albert & Princess Charlene's post-wedding Ball. That one ranks second to my all-time favorite royal gown ever ~ Princess Diana's pale blue fairytale gown in November 1981 ~ period.
