I HATE that Akris dress. With the changes (via a vis runway), the top and bottom look like two different dresses. The slit in the skirt looks like kids started pulling on either side of the original skirt and pulled the slit open. The fit on the shoulders is ridiculous.

I loved, what on my computer was the blue gown. Stunning. The white whatever it was the designer needs to get another job and I didn't like her hair. The4 last outfit was lovely and she looked great.

I would have liked the dress better with the original length. Didn't much care for her hair style. I loved the wink from PA. :)

I think sh looked amazing!

Runway ** Charlene's outfit
Okay, so standing pigeoned toed is not very elegant, but those shoes sure beat the flats on the runway or (worse) the trending dreaded white running shoes!

I am not sure what she is doing with her hair, it looks great from the front, but the back, not so much. I hope she isn't trying to grow her hair out again because she really looks terrific with it in it's original short style and has seemed to find an amazing number of different ways of changing things up.

With her hair styled short she looks stylish, elegant and formidable. With it long she seemed wan and frail, so fragile she looked almost breakable. No, the drastic chop heralded a whole new Charlene in both style and sassy attitude and I am not quite ready to part with that quite yet.

I don't like the Akris at all yuk!! and the Dior is questionable for me I hate the nude shoulder thing and the cut at the front I like the model ready for tennis look does the dress justice IMO

The deep navy long gown was fabulous, I thought and the casual look with the white jeans was nice. I'm afraid I absolutely loathe the white dress, it's just a mess IMO.

I agree with the previous posts... thw white dress was atrocious... all those fringes were unnecessary and did nothing for her...

Thank heavens...I'm not the only one who thinks that dress should be burned at the stake.

I liked it. The Princess' beautiful figure was framed and it was an appropriate dress for watching a Formula One Grand Prix in the own backyard... It was decent and at the same time daring. My compliments.

I agree, that blue gown was amazing. Very disappointed she missed the Sunday gala but this look was a great consolation prize. I also want to add that I remember she wore those earrings in the very early days of her marriage and I loved them then as well. She also wore a yellow and white diamond pair of the exact same design and I wondered at the time if it was one pair with interchangeable stones or two different pairs. The main question however was whether she owned them or whether they were a loan. Now they have appeared again nearly 4 years later I am thinking it's the former and I hope I'm right because they are just stunning.

I think we must be the only ones who did not like Charlene's white dress...she made headlines with it. I still don't care for it, but way to go Princess Charlene!

It is notable how they cropped the photograph to avoid showing the unusual arch of the dress in front. (Not even HSH Princess Charlene can make me like this new 'trend'/style. I can only shake my head in disbelief that she's opted for this bit of 'showmanship'). I can't help but imagine the Duchess of Cambridge wearing such a dress. The reaction would be riotous methinks (and in my heart of hearts, I'd agree). Curious difference.

Charlene is much more high fashion Kate is very predictable high street. Two very different styles one French one English one is not better than the other. But I do love to see what Charlene wears

I don't the difference is curious two different women with two very different styles. I like that Charlene tries new looks.

As you say, I think the two ladies have very different styles. Charlene is certainly more high couture, whereas Catherine is a lot more classic elegance.


However, I don't buy the High Street bit. Catherine is rarely ever seen in High St clothes for higher profile engagements now. Increasingly, her clothes are bespoke, from UK based designers.
