Not a fan. The dress looks like something you'd find at the Gap.

I like this dress, it is a summer dress in the style of the tournament of tennis, marine style , this event charity was a very relaxed event not a visit to a very important personality.

It would've been a nice outfit for the marine/yacht. I know its a relaxed event but it doesn't work for me for such an event.

I like this dress but she looks a bit too casual compared with the other guests.

It doesn't work for me either, dazzling. It really exaggerates her shoulders with the stripes, and not in a good way. It's a cute dress, but just not for her.

At the tennis she appearss to have just rolled out of bed she looks underdressed and though I like the dress it is more for the beach than an engagement carried out by a Princess IMO

Like the striped dress/maxi-shirt when she's sitting down a lot more than when she's standing (don't like the ehm 'boob-area'), but i guess you can never please everybody...

We'll I really like it. Considering one of the guests across from her was a man in tee shirt and baseball cap, she is certainly not underdressed. Also, what is like about the dress is that it seems to be a fresh take on the Breton shirt,this appears to be out of a crepe or some kind of stretchy material. I would love an id

I am with those who think the dress is too casual / better suited for the beach. Charlene's legs/knees look like the legs of an old woman.

I was surprised at how unbecoming her legs were also, Duke. Usually swimmer's legs are toned and attractive.

It is all a small-scale tennis tournament organized by private persons, not to compare with the tournament at the Monte Carlo Country Club (which is played this week by the way) attended by legends as Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. I think the Princess looked nice, just private.

I agree about the legs. These look pretty pale for someone living at the sunny French Rivièra and also skinny, the legs of someone on a too low calories diet, causing a decrease in musculature. Professional swimmers have used their body to intensive trainings and work outs, for years and years, often already in childhood. The Princess has ended her career. Her body never gets the same, almost daily, "workload" to burn a massive amount of calories. This means that probably the Princess has starved/is starving herself to compensate the loss of training intensity with a lower intake of calories. Not very smart. Often the body "eats" the musculature (by lack of body reserves as fat) causing a very skinny look. Of course that last part is purely for my own account. I am just guessing on base of what I see.

For the Hola shoot, Charlene wore Akris, Dior and a new designer called Stefanie Renoma.

I really love the black off-the-shoulder gown. Charlene looks very elegant in it.

It's fine for watching tennis, but she wasn't presenting any awards or anything right?

She looks smart but comfortable. Her hair is looking good too but she looks a little bit tired around the eyes?

Really simple, but I like it. Her hairdo is my favorite.

A shame she has to wear the identity tag, a scarf would have made this look for me.
