Much agreement. I find it interesting that when I ask a Charlene detractor what she should be wearing, "they" either "don't know" or have no opinion.

However, I do agree with SemiSquare in that a brooch or other piece of jewelry (even a bracelet of substance) would add some pizzazz.

I am at a loss to understand why debate about Charlene's fashion and style is described in such vitriolic, personal, even intimate, terms when other fashion threads show that spirited debate is healthy and even fun!

So you don't like the dress! Actually, neither do I, but I do not feel the need to assassinate the poor woman's character to make my point.
So sorry, i didn`t mean to upset you...

great post. Charlene seems to bring out the ugly in some people. Not just here try the other board. I have never seen such malice toward someone. The funny this that the entire board over there is all in agreement with one another. Purely ridiculous

On this thread we are all "girls together", surely.....

I've seen much more vitriol in these threads which have been allowed by the moderators.

For instance, at the same time, on another thread someone is calling a woman "trash", and "tramp".....

I really like the simplicity of this outfit. She looks very classy.

You've clearly never been in the Princess Letizia fashion thread. Just wait until people start questioning Charlene's mental health or joking that Albert should divorce her solely based on her outfits.

There's nothing wrong with the dress. The dress itself is fine. It's the way she wore the dress. There was really no reason for her breasts to be pushed up in that manner. That look doesn't look good on anyone- princess or not.

Charlene has worn similar dresses without the same effect: Noblesse & Royautés » Mariage princier : concert au stade Louis II

Noblesse & Royautés » Albert de Monaco et Charlène au Amber Fashion Show

Noblesse & Royautés » Charlène Wittstock à une exposition consacrée à Nelson Mandela Even this dress, which is strapless AND has a cut out in the chest, seems less "look at my breasts" than the one she recently wore.

Congratulations to HSH on being named to Vanity Fair's International BEST DRESSED List...I think it's a very well deserved honor for the new Princess of Monaco!

That is exactly what i mean, it dosn`t look good on anyone- princess or not.
And look at the pic of Charlene with the same dress, without showing off the breasts, she looks so beautiful

I love this look on her...this is the Charlene I like to see.

Hummmm...Charlene's outfit, if worn by another recent royal bride, would be praised for its simplicity and respect for those less fortunate in troubled economic times.

Cartoon names for female body parts are distressing, especially coming from women.

My best girlfriend uses "the girls" all the time, but I ignore it. She thinks its cute, I find it sophomoric.

Sorry I didn't mean it the way it might have sounded to you.
"Hans and Franz" are the names Heidi Klum gave her boobs.
I wanted it to sound funny.
And I really think Charlene has good taste and fashion sense.

A lot of what "another recent royal bride" wears is equally derided (along with lots of other royals), so it's not just Charlene getting critisized for what she wears. People who are not fans of Kate would nitpick about that outfit had she wore it instead of Charlene.

i posted several clothing options for her, its back a page or two but im not the type of person to complain without giving ideas on how to improve a situation-just check it out and tell me what you think

I found your post (#115, I think) and all the selections are very nice...nice for another recently wed woman. The day dresses are very Kate. Although I like Kate, Charlene can do more dramatic clothing.

However, I do love the gown, but I like her in strapless so that nothing competes with her jewelry; which is (to me) the more important component.

Now, if she chose to just wear earrings (of a non-dangly nature) or no jewelry at all, that gown on Charlene would be the cat's meow!

Regardless of what one calls her breasts it doesn't change the pushed up look she has and honestly it's tacky....IMO she wasn't 'attacked' anymore then Letizia, Kate or even Mary (have you read that thread? Some seriously dislike her) but a spade is a spade and putting your boobs on display like that is far more vulgar then calling them 'the girls' . I didn't think the post was a character assassination at all.....just my opinion

for the sake of correct grammer-her showing the world her breast is in bad taste..ok im done with that subject can we move on unless the breast show up again then can we readdress it then?
now for her choice of clothing--im sorry but she should follow kate's look. yes its safe and might even be called plan but it works and she really needs to follow someone else's style just for now..imo

I could not disagree more. I love Kate's look... for Kate. It works for her and her circumstances.

Charlene is a completely different person, in a different country and needs to dress in a look that works for HER.

And I really don't like comparing the two AT ALL.

Well said. Two completely different and unique women in different circumstances. what works for one wouldn't automatically work for the other.

I don't like to compare Charlene and Kate either.
Charlene's job can not be compared to Kate's.
They don't share the same taste of clothes and they both have totally different bodies to wear different clothes!
Let's just hope Charlene goes on like she has.
I like her in black and I think Armani would agree on that
