Charlene looks trés chic, I love the dress but am not a fan of the shawl/cape. I like how it's a different shade of blue to the dress, but the patterns put me off a little.

I'm wondering if she is alright, she is looking rather dark under her eyes and I don't think it's make up.

She's the mother of twins! Even if she has a nanny or two, I'm sure she is probably like any new mother and doesn't get much sleep (especially if she's breastfeeding them, that's something that doesn't stop, even at night until they are a little older). I'd say she looks pretty great for a new mom!

The first photo at first glance reminded me of Grace. There's a very different "aura" about Charlene since she became a mother - A couple of years ago I would never have imagined her developing he persona she now has.

Haha, you are responding to a mother of two and grandmother of two so I am well aware of all the issues. The babies were born in December, they are not newborns. This was not a criticism, it may just be the shadows in a picture OR her makeup but I do think (on the overhead display) that she indeed looks VERY tired. I hope it is just that it's shadows.

She is, indeed, very different since the babies have been born. Both in a good way and in a way that is just different. For me it's the overdone make-up, and in these three pictures she does look very tired. She's continuing to keep her 'look' simple. It's something she can get together very quickly (imo) but she has both joy and some worries methinks. So it is. Life, and maybe the baby-blues?

You read my mind. The photos of Charlene at her prie-Dieu and on the palace Balcony gazing down at the crowds at Mass could be Princess Grace herself. Charlene's transformation began almost as soon as she became pregnant and is nearly complete.

She is amazing now, with a confidence and serenity that I've never seen before. I think her outfit for the Fete Dieu celebration was perfect.

The slicked back hair is not my thing.

The Princess was in her very own house and looking down from a gallery above. She was not leaving her house and not in public. She was more than appropriate dressed (covered shoulders, skirt on knee length), just watching down from her own balcony, between the soup and the potatoes, so to speak...

Love your description! :)
Yes, she was appropriately dressed -- I did not question that. It was merely not to my personal liking, that's all. She looked very pretty and poised though.

Princess Charlene at the opening ceremony of the 2015 Monte Carlo Television Festival today, June 13, wearing a black dress. Although I'm not excited about the cut of the dress, I think she looked great:

Normally, I don't really like Charlene in black but I think she looks great here - hair, make up and jewellery is lovely. I like the cut and draping on the dress. A win for me...

I like Charlene's dress & look but the shoes are all wrong.

Yes, just looked at the shoes more closely - they're a bit clunky.

She's lost the puffiness of the baby-weight in her face, and her face is radiant. She is so animated these days! Lovely to see that. I don't notice her dress. It looks like she's not paying much attention either. Great ruby/diamond earrings.

Just a year ago, Charlene would have looked pretty nondescript in this dress, but her new found confidence shines through. Love the earrings too.

Makeup is a little heavy and I am not crazy about the hair, but the Princess of Monaco is looking her usual dazzling self. I love the black dress!
