Oh my god! we are seing her belly through the belt, what a shame.! what a skandal!
I do not like her hair as we saw last evening, but why saying something? the one person who could say 'no' was the prince Albert and he was happy whith Charlene at his side and a little pride. as they were in the stairs to go to their seats. It is not worse than the dress of Princess Stephanie last year at the Red Cross Gala last year in 2010. and the people of the country (last evening, they were in Menton, a french town) are used to watch wifes dressed as Charlene was. It is not because she is a princess sovereighn, she must dress like old ladies, she is young and beautiful it will not be the last times, she will wear a dress like this one she was wearing last evening.

I don't like it, simply because I think it looks tacky, not just because she's the consort of a reigning prince. But she is still young, so maybe she should wear all of these things while she still can!

Because it's a fashion thread and that's what this thread is for? If the argument you wrote above would be the argument all the time, why have a fashion thread in the first place? To put pictures only?

If I remember correctly, at some point at the French Court, it was fashion to expose the breasts.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

It is okay to call a dress "tacky", but we won't give someone nicknames like the
one you've proposed, that's offending. Princess Charlene will surely make more
fashion mistakes and she'll find some good looks, we'll see what developments
the future will bring.

Somehow ppl focuse more on fashion faux-pas than beautiful dresses/outfits...IMO Charlene chose very beautiful,classy,elegant styles in the past and the dress with the belly-cut-out did look very nice while she was standing,only when she sat down it looked a little bit strange. I guess semisquare is always dressed perfectly with a super body-shape and flawless hair *lol*
I have seen far worse things than a little bit of belly,so I don´t understand the whole issue...
Because Charlene is very tall and slim she can wear pretty much anything and for sure she has experts to help her find the right silhouettes and colours for her.

In reference to KittyAtlanta, it was also the fashion during the French Empire and Regency England to wear dampened muslin dresses. No small wonder that the fashionable world succumbed to pneumonia or "a chill". Imagine walking around in wet clothes all the time. Also in the French court there was a trend for rouged nipples at one time. I read waaaay too much history......

A bit behind on this topic.

I didn't recognize the wedding dress brunch at all with the necklace added to it. It's amazing how just one accessory can make a outfit seem different. Charlene looked good both times, but I prefer the necklace look.

As for the cut-out dress controversy. It did make me think of Paris Hilton at worst, Blake Lively at best, but I don't think Charlene should be labelled as tacky for wearing it. Usually, she wears very safe, very boring, very predicable Armani fashion. This dress, with its nods towards Versace and Gucci, is sexy, daring and different. As for it' not being princessy, lets remember that Princess Diana wore TONS of cleavege baring gowns/cocktails dresses the last 2 years of her life and nobody thought she looked not-regal. And, as has been mentioned by others: nudity and body-baring is nothing new where court fashion is concerned. Also: if Charlene is tacky, what does that make Stephanie? While Charlene has her misses, at least she tries to dress the part of stereotypical princess fashion most of the time. When was the last time Stephanie made anyone think 'princess'? (I like Stephanie, but not her style sense It makes a mockery of royalty and fashion.)

I like that she is recycling clothes, although I bet it frustrates fashion insiders given that Kate does it too.

I have been an avid reader of anything concerning past fashions and clothes, and I never heard of something like that... I know that there was a lot of cleavage exposure some times, but they didn't go as far as to show the breasts themselves!

its make princess stephanie's choice not all of them but a lot of them tacky...but this is a form on charlene's dress

in regards to princess stephanie choice of clothing ..yea a lot of them can be called tacky but this is a form on charlene not stephanie
and in regards to kate recycling her clothing..imo the issue is not the repeat of clothing but the choice,if its correct for them event she is attending, and if it shows way to much skin..she can repeat all of the clothes til the cows come home but if its showing almost all of your breast and you already have large breast then its vulgar imo
again this isnt about kate but charlene...all of this is said with love and kindness so pls dont take offense at my wording

Well I'm an "elderly type" and I thought she looked terrific, maybe not the best she's ever looked but quite fine. I haven't seen her ever look tacky or vulgar. I think everyone has their own opinion of what is vulgar when it comes to the cleavage issue, but as I said IMO she hasn't come close to vulgar.

I Agree with Cordelia and Melina; some of you are acting like this is the freakin 1950s! There is defnitely not too much cleavage. What is with people thinking that every slit down a woman's chest equals too much cleavage; a slit does not necessarily mean over abundance of breast. I think the dress was ok, it definitely looked better when she was sitting down. As for her belly showing, I swear it had to be like 2% of her entire stomach; oh my call the Princess police. I think she wore the dress better at the Nelsen Mandella event than this recent one. I was thinking to myself a few days ago that I wish she would wear her hair down more; and now she has. I just wish it was in some form of style.
