The dress was simple, nothing special, but nice. The color is nice too

I really don't like her pixie haircut - much prefer her with a longer styles it softens her appearance.
not in my opinion her greatest monaco national day appearance.

Every line is so cutting edge and the hat reminds me of the Roaring 20's. Too severe a look. Not at all feminine.

My guess is that the dress is by Akris. I liked sleek simplicity of the ensemble. I wish Princess Charlene diluted the look with a touch of beige.

I love the dress and the hat - very edgy. I just wonder if maybe sheerer (is that a word?) tights would have been better?

In the photos posted of previous National Day outfits I have to say my favourite was the very first.

The purple dress is beautiful but I don't like the hat.

In general, I like Charlene's National Day outfit. Love the color and the drop waist style of the dress. I do wish that the hem was the same length all the way around but since it is not a huge difference, I will over look that part. I think I like the hat - haven't quite made up my mind yet. It does have a 1920's vibe to it. Unfortunately it also brings to mind the swim cap I had to wear for swimming lessons when I was about seven. Of course, with Charlene, that would be appropriate.

Some larger, nice pictures of the day

The pix of Charlene and Albert and the twins are very cute, especially the second picture of Albert and his Mini-Me.

P Charlene looked just so chic and elegant today. Quite the opposite from her sisters-in-law! I particularly liked the colour and the overall style of her outfit. And not many ladies will be able to pull off that hat quite the way she does!

I thought her outfit was a huge statement piece(if that makes sense). I loved it. Loved her cloche hat as well. I don't find this style of hat to be the least bit severe. And I much prefer it to her new hairstyle.

I didn't care for the outfit. I thought the uneven hem was odd looking and the hat was just awful. All in all, not her best look.

I just had a conversation with someone about how we are a mere 4 years away from the 2020's. We were ruminating about the Roaring 20's, and here comes Charlene looking like she's wearing a cloche hat! The whole effect feels 1920's, and not in a bad way either, just very much that flavor. I rather like the cloche. Wouldn't mind it coming back into serious fashion. Certainly better than the pointless fascinators.

On my screen the hosiery is the same color as the dress. Very elegant.

Lol, Lady Nimue! I love your comments, but I fail to see the fashion sense of either 'hat'!! :) I find Both to be pretty bad and certainly not flattering to the wearer.

Well, thank you! Nice of you to say. You may be generally correct about this particular hat (it has inexplicable white netting) and doesn't sit totally like a cloche, of course. With the right bone structure cloches can be quite fetching, I think, especially the beaded, crocheted and jeweled ones. In fact, that's where I think all the jewels should go (rather than tiaras).

Apart from the white netting I love everything else about this outfit. She has her own style and always looks stunning

The color is nice but full view of the outfit is a miss.

The hat with the netting is not attractive, especially with the extra netting sticking up on top.

The uneven dress and the extremely large seam that matches the flow of the unevenness of the dress does not add anything to the dress.

The coordinated colors of her outfit is nice.
I especially like her gloves but the hat and the seam are what make the outfit a miss.
