You really can't get better that this classic Chanel, but I think PCaroline doesn't look too good. Better make-up,hair...something. She looks rather hard IMO.

Agree, to me she looks quite hard as well. The outfit is just perfect. But her hair and make up...
She looks very matured in the last months, so this hairstyle is quite unflattering for her and a bit frumpy too.

Caroline looks amazing! The whole outfit looks wonderful but maybe a better hairdo or a nice hat would've complimented the outfit better

Caroline looked really nice, the coat fitted perfectly and the detailing on it was just perfect, the dress underneth looked lovely with it not showing too much.
The hair was nice but the make up didnt look so good, she looked pale and tired, no color.

The outfit is wonderful, stunning actually (love, love, love the jacket)! But everything else is, well lack of a better work, yuck. Her hair and makeup were just not good at all. She looks much older in these latest pictures that I have seen her.

It happens when women are around 55, suddenly the skin looses its elasticity and if she will not opt for plastic surgery (which I respect) it will be the new Caroline, a middle aged woman. Also when you are very skinny which Caroline is, (the picture adds 10 pounds) you tend to wrinkle faster than those of us with some fat

Apart from the dark hosiery Caroline's Chanel ensemble is amazing!

I love the tiny seed pearl trim of the coat and the shoes...just not the black hose.

Talking Glistening Seas

How dee-lightful believe it or not, we were hoping someone would post close ups of Caroline's outfit. What a truly magnificient outfit on her. Talk about regal looking indeed-y.

She opted for a more natural look which is wonderful perhaps if she would add a hair decoration or hat etc. However all in all the hair was very elegante!

However, the simplicity of the hairstyle made the dress the attention grabber and it looked simply elegante and very regal indeed. It was a truly grand outfit! Did anyone catch a close up of the shoes? Also we would love to have close ups of the gown worn at the opera that evening as well!

I see where Caro's hair may have needed help with her tresses but then again she was chic with her chignon standing on the balcony and at the opera amazingly co-ordinated as always. Caro is an icon of sophistication and one of the best dressed women in the world.Her clothes allude to a certain classic style she has beyond trendy fashion itself.

Caroline is usually dressed to perfection, not only that she has the right connections (Chanel etc) and the budget, but also the style / elegance / grace / charisma to pull off one of the most regal look among royal women.

However, Caroline has aged in the last months BIG TIME. All of a sudden her true age shows massively, as if she was spared for 5, 10 years and all of a sudden the tragedies show, maybe it has to do with the latest trouble, the rumoured difficulties in her marriage, now she looks as hard as her sister, Stephanie.

Agreed Duke, Ive noticed a certain tiredness about the Princess lately. Poor thing. Does she still smoke? But I think, even as she ages, she will do it with her innate style and elegance.

I truly loved the outfit P Caroline wore- its looks fantastic on her!

When I perused the photos, I was struck how SAD Caroline looks to me. (dark circles under the eyes, tired expression, tightly clinched jaw.....)

It reminded me a little of the pictures of her at her mother's funeral, I wish her peace!

As pictures taken during this year's summer holidays show, she still smokes.

In general, I find Princess Caroline's style vastly overrated. She certainly was something of a style icon in the 1980s and 90s, but during the past decade, I have rarely been impressed by her fashion choices, and especially during the past few years, there were more misses than hits.

While her Chanel ensemble at Monaco's National Day was beautiful, her heavy fur at the opera looked cumbersome instead of luxurious, and also somewhat inappropriate in the midst of an unusually warm autumn.
The sleeveless dress underneath with its pleated 'bib' effect is quite dull and unflattering, resembling something like a World War I nurse's uniform.

Unfortunatley, I think the smoking is really showing on Caroline now- how sad for such a beautiful lady, inside & out!

I found her too flashy in the eighties and nineties.True her fur which was probably Grace's coat was cumbersome but I thought her white Chanel gown was chic along with gloves& earrings.It needed a special coat of its own especially designed for the occasion.It maybe time to relinquish Chanel.I thought Caro's hair was purposely long and pulled back to reflect her matriachal status as "mater familias."
However she did not have a deep cleavage and was sensibly attired although she failed to hit the fashion ball out of the ballpark.

couldnt agree more Duke and as i tried to say before, these last few months haven't helped her at all. caroline looks more like her mother these days but awfully tired and unhappy. stephanie is certainly from the grimaldi side in her looks.

Princess Caroline of Hanover arrive at the National Day Gala at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco (19/11/2009).

Princess Caroline looks stunning, fashionable and very beautiful.

I agree.She looks stunning with the authentic chinchilla fur and the long white gloves,Grace was so fond of,and she wears lovely earrings with The "Tour Eiffel",she has used many years ago and I love them.In my opinion,she would look better with dark lipstick,and clairer hair ....

It is difficult to see how you can uphold both the fashions of CW and caro in the same sentence.
Now Caro upholds the the Grimaldi fashion front. right. Everything of Caro's here is mismatched .jmo There is no allure in that.
