It is a fantastic dress but for an official welcome ceremony of a head of state, I expected some more decorum. Something more 'dressed', preferrably with hat and gloves. After all Charlène is HSH The Princess of Monaco. Her sister-in-law Princess Caroline for sure would have spiced it up!

But the dress on itself, apart from this specific event, nothing wrong with it.

Princess Charlene's Fashion and Style Part 11: November 2013 -

Just looking at the photos on the current events thread, and I do agree that perhaps a jacket plus a handbag might have been appropriate particularly when you look at the appearance of the wife of the president and also bearing in mind the formalities of the occasion with the inspection of the guard etc. But it is still a lovely choice of dress for the visit.

The more I look at it, the more I like Charlene's dress. It fits her well.
At first it seemed to me that the dress is all white, but thankfully not. A combination of a black-and-white is really nice.

I love this dress & the heels, very classy, whether it's the right attire for this specific event I dont know. I'd chosen a more formal suit.

Love the dress but as others have said it is probably not formal enough for this event. I would like to see the dress again at a different event.

The heels are by Dior. I assume the dress as well as very similar styles where shown in his collection. I love the dress and the fit but I don't like it in the color, its too crisp white for me for such an event.

I agree, the dress would've been more suited to a sporting event, such as a tennis match or the Grand Prix. That aside, Charlene looks elegant and the dress itself is nice, apart from the black strip on the side.

Princess Charlene in a nice black dress at the African art exhibition "Myths and Rites" in Monaco on May 7:

On May 8 she visited the Princess Grace Hospital wearing a dress in creme, that also looks good on her from what can be seen:

I like both the black sheath and the cream/beige one. No frills elegance, which seems to be Charlene's stock in trade "look".

I like the little "bolero" look at the top of the black sheath, but her hair is too severe. The beige is typical Charlene.

Smart, tailored work wear which is what she is doing, but essentially boring blah. I wish she would wear more bright colours - she can really carry them off well.

Yes, way to casual. Looks like something I might run errands wearing.

You are right. The ensemble is simple and understated. However, it seems to be more appropriate for some non-official activities.

Yesterday, May 14, Charlene was in Aurillac, France, wearing a new outfit in green - the colour is great, but I would have chosen another top underneath.

I really don't get her sometimes. Did she not look at how Albert was dressed and think to herself, well perhaps I need to have a rethink?
