The shade is a bit pale and dull but Charlene can pull off these sombre colours very well. She does look absolutely lovely and the gown is most flattering. Princess Charlene is of course wearing a bracelet and earrings from the Montblanc Haute Joaillerie Riviera Collection. Exquisite.

I like Charlene's dress but I prefer the darker colours for her

Charlene is so lucky that these neutral colours look positively luminous on her. I love the avante-garde style of the dress with it's original neckline and handkerchief hem. Her jewellery, as always, discreet and drop dead gorgeous.

Charlene is not afraid to ring the changes in pursuit of what suits her best and I have to admit, I love that she is moving away from the very "Hollywood" strapless gowns and into very interesting "Royal" territory.

Is this Armani? It is a beautiful dress and fits her figure perfectly.

Though I ADORE the jewlery she is wearing, some colored stones, perhaps a nice, discreet, aquamarine necklace,earrings and bracelet would add a touch of color.

The wider shoulder straps really suits Charlene. She looks gr8! Her hair looks good too.

I really liked Charlenes dress but not in that color. It had a nice flow when she walked and the straps on shoulders were nice and thick which didn't make her shoulders look so broad. This dress would've been lovely if it was in black, or a rich purple/blue or even a really dark green.

Unfortunately not everyone looks good in deep purple or green or any other deep colour.

I am not surprised that it is a Akriss dress, she wears very often dress of Akris, the dress I like more was the dress she wore at the evening at he wedding of Prince William and Catherine .
for one time, she did not wear a black gown.
Charlene does'nt wear many jewellery . I like her earings.

If you look at the Arkis Spring 2011 collection, you find a few similar dresses to the one Charlene wore but obviously hers has been altered, but the style and idea is there.

And not everyone looks good in neutral colors or nude colors like what Charlene tends to go for
