It does seem like charlene can never win when dealing with this topic. I remember at the Red Cross Ball when she was clearly the best dressed there and someone complained that she looked like a movie star more than a Princess. WTH! She looks great when compared to her frumpy sister's in law yet she gets criticized for being too glamourous.

I couldn't agree more.
She certainly has more fashion sense than Stephanie and Caroline.
And maaaany other royals!
Imo Stephanie looks cheap and Caroline boring!

With Princess Charlene, we will never be bored, she has tasts of fashion that you have not . For me it is a difference of tasts between, the anglo saxon and european fashion culture But, she does not wear cloths that you buy in an ordinary shop, girls, the clothes that she is wearing are of big designers, Armani, Terence, Akris or Lagerfeld (see the civil ceremony.), She likes also to be a little sexy. we see a little part of her belly through her belt and it becomes a shame, how old are you ? I ask myself ?

A pretty dress (? - or are these wide legged pants) although not liking the cut of the neckline. Much improved look on Charlene incl hair.
LOVE this dress, neckline especially, and the wide pant legs - looks classy but also very comfortable. Charlene has the knack - if that's what one can call it - of wearing her clothing - her clothes don't wear her.

Hmm, odd
Looks great IMO. Refreshingly casual cum formal. To have a body like hers - I'd flaunt it, too. Slim but boff - brimming with health and beauty. She makes whatever she wears work. IMO never has made a step wrong yet.

Well put, a little sexy but not too much. Perfect for Monaco

I almost have to see her walking in this dress to see if it is pants or not. I love the dress on her. It was also nice to see her wear something that she hasn't worn in the spotlight before.

Too bad she didn't wear some jewellry with the black outfit. It would have helped her not look so... er... bare. Some gold jewels would look good to accent her gold belt.

I agree, nothing new here but at least she has made an effort with a new hairstyle. The dress fits well and is a classic piece. Its a putty she doesn't put effort into jewelry at events as her look always seems to be missing something.

Charlene looks classy from head to toe but I agree that a necklace is missing.

The black dress is nice and simple. She looks lovely, the problem is that she always looks like a small child at church that was being made to do something they don't necessarily want to do. Many of us adults have learned how to "fake" a look of enjoyment at events that we'd rather not attend, maybe she should learn this skill and learn it quickly.

I think that might have been me. Or at least I was one of the backers of that complaint.

When I first started following her post-engagement, there was a of an anti-Charlene negativity and I did, and still do, agree with some of the critiques (education, speaking the language of Monaco, too much plastic surgery) and it bled over into how I saw her fashion-wise.

However, in the months since the engagement was announced, and the wedding, I've been informally learning more about her. I think she is more accomplished than what she is given credit for and I do think she genuinely cares about Monaco. Plus, she's honest about her fashion history, which appeals because there are many a famous folk who won't even admit to getting fashion advice.

I still think she has a way to go because she becomes truly stylish, but I now like and look forward to seeing her fashion originality: a luxurious but breezy glamour.

I like the simplicity of this outfit. She looks really nice, and the wisps of hair that she has framing her face make her look youthful.

Only thing I would have done different is to put on some jewelry; her shoulders and chest look very bare.

Oh yes, Charlene does look absolutely lovely. The fitted back strapless dress is so chic and elegant. I love the way her hair has been softly pulled back. A very beautiful look indeed. However, I do agree with a plain black dress like this one, some form of necklace would have been very complimentary.
