The overall look isn´t anything speacial. The color of the dress really washes her out. I would have preferred that her arms had been covered.

The thing is, I am sure that a lovely dress which would have been more age appropriate could have been designed. I am firmly in the camp that women of a certain age do not have to cover themselves in a burka ..... but please, this dress was just NOT the thing for her to wear. I am sure there were many fashionable women of the '20s out and about that could well have been a good model.

I don't understand why some consider the dress not "age-appropriate". I've seen photos of women older-much older than Princess Caroline wearing sleeveless. Nancy Reagan, Betsey Bloomingdale, the late Nan Kempner..all of these so called style mavens were late 60 and 70 something women who routinely bared their arms in the 80's.

Caroline is just 57. If she had toned, firm muscles nobody would call her dress age inappropriate.

I don't think it was inappropriate for her age. Just unflattering.

I totally agree with you, Moonmaiden! I think it would be an unattractive dress on just about anyone! :(

Caroline looked very elegant at the anniversary mass for her father

Her hair is getting very thin at the bottom though, I think she should go back to a shorter hairstyle. She looked good with it. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...0479e8036a.jpg

I'm sorry but we age everyone no one is exempt. I think her arms are fine so what they aren't the arms of a 21 year old. I think someone with no arms would love to have her arms. Aging is a part of life and I rather like seeing women looking natural and not filled with fillers.

Stunning!!! She is aging well and not ruining her looks with Botox and surgery. Love the jumpsuit, and the scarf is to die for....

Here is an article from Semana where we can see photos of one of the toilettes used by P. Caroline in Hyeres. In this article P. Caroline makes some interessting remarks about fashion and her relation with it. She says, for instance that she against fashion dictates, that today, some ancient fashion principles, like never wear white shoes after the 1st September or never wear diamonds before 5 pm , don't exist anymore... that today we have much more freedom,whereas before everything in fashion was codified. She also claims that P. Grace never wore jeans in her life and that her ( P. Caroline's ) generation was the first to enjoy such freedom regarding fashon and clothing...

Her comment about her Mother never wearing jeans is interesting. I could have sworn that I had seen pictures of her wearing them .... not often. Maybe she wore them as Grace Kelly and NOT Princess Grace of Monaco. :)
