So was the dress stitched up from the table cloth or did the left-overs of the dress fabric go on the tables?
Matching the color scheme in such a blatant way does not exactly result in the most subtle or elegant effect...
you sum it up perfectly...i couldnt place it but wow...dress in a way to match the decor..now we'r in high school or at a wedding?

I believe that unfortunately, it's not just a matter of heavy mascara; the Princess appears to be wearing false eyelashes which are too thick, too black and too exaggerated - close up:

Disappointment for me, Charlene has looked much, much better last year, super elegant and classy.

This year, everything seems to be loud, flashy & TACKY. Matching the deco to Charlene's dress, omg! Its all too much, colour & different fabrics of the dress, ocean tiara as a necklace, Grace reloaded hairstyle, but nothing works together.

I was so impressed with their wedding, where the motto was LOOK AT ME but in such an elegant, regal and classy way, yesterday it was LOOK AT ME again, but very cheap & B-celebrity.

At least she is not using heavy lower liner. Her effect at least with that looks like there was a sufficiently light hand in application.

She is stunning, though - I think. Well done IMO.

Duke of Marmalade - you have a good point there.... What happened to the regal creature on her wedding day ???

The answer, alas, is that the above creature never really existed.
The lady has a mind of her own....

I love the colour of the dress, but I wish it was a flowy dress instead of a fitted one. I also wish she'd keep out of the sun.

Last year she was just perfect. Make up, dress...
This year is ok for me but not that breathtaking as last year!

I like the dress, but it looks better on the model than on Charlene.
I also think her face was too shiny.

But she looks very happy and in love with her prince.

To be sincere,I do not like at all Charlene's outfit worn at Red Cross Ball 2011.First of all,the dress it 's nice,but it doesn't suit Charlene,who is a nordic type of beauty,this colour would have looked better on a brunette.Besides this,it wasn't nice to see that the colour of Charlene's outfit,who is actually Princess of Monaco,coincided with the colour of some tableclothes.

I really think she looked beautiful, agreed that the color would be better on a brunette and would have liked a dress color that went better with the necklace.

If you can't wear some sparkle, false eyelashes, shine and LOTS of diamonds in Monaco, then where? Check out the attire of the other guests and her sisters in law.

Charlene looks beautiful! Absolutely gorgeous. Love that color on her . She looks so much like Grace Kelly.

The overall look is lovely. I like the colour of her dress (blondes always look good in pink) and at least she's covering up her bossom. I also like the way her hair was done. And of course the diamond necklace (ocean tiara) looks fantastic. Diamonds go with any colour.

I like the corset-like detailing on the bodice of the dress. Does anyone know does it come in other jewel like colours such as: sapphire blue, emerald green and amethyst purple?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

i have to say charlene looked faboulous in her fucsia dress. it completely suits her! besides, i wonder if they knew what colour she was wearing since the decorations are also fucsia! :)

what surprised me though is that her skin seems badly damaged by the sun (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-F7N1cSiCD1.../s1600/229.jpg), with darker spots. of course it doesn't show in every picture but it surprises me that she didn't take better care...

princess victoria seems to have the same problem (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-RRshsJ9EWt...na_6283883.jpg)

I don't think it's damaged by the sun.
She's got freckles and she used more make up in the past but after honeymooning in the sun maybe she thought she doesn't need so much make up and the spots just shined through.
