I think completely the opposite - I think she carries off bright colours extremely well so I love the bright lipstick. That's why I hate all the neutrals she swathes herself in, I don't love her in black either. I think they make her look washed out and ill.

I don't mind the short hair but I did prefer it just slightly longer.

I hate, hate, hate the boots - they may well be the height of fashion and costly but I just find them cheap looking.

Hey ho, if we all agreed it wouldn't be much of a discussion board! 😊

The black outfit is definitely the better of the two looks. Again I don't get her and the gloves.

I don't think the scarf in the gray outfit was part of the dress, just the same color. I could be wrong but it looks too big and odd places to be part of the neckline of the dress. I guess I could be wrong.
Yes, I've just looked and I think you're right about the scarf and dress being separate - quite like it/ them minus the yucky beige stuff.

Also, I've seen some better lit pictures and realised the black is actually navy - which is slightly better than black but still a bit stark for my taste.

In the Grey/beige outfit she just looks washed out, tired and [weirdly] OLD... the radiance after the immediate birth of the twins is gone..

The Black is MUCH, much more stylish, but her foundation looks piled on !

Wow,what a fabulous style on the what I see as the navy coat. What great placement of pleats, any ID? Terrific over the knee boots only she can wear as well as the great new haircut. Nice change from all those helmet heads.

I think the second outfit is more severe but very elegant and it fits the occasion, after all!

I like the navy outfit as it is very appropriate and stylish for the occasion. I don't understand why she wears fabric gloves instead of leather which look soo much richer.

P Charlene looked chic and elegant as ever. Because of her height and slender figure just about anything she wears looks good on her. I also don't mind the grey/beige ( that works surprisingly well ) or navy colours. But to me, the style is just too similar for two consecutive days: big scarves, gloves and knee high boots. Two rather different styles would have been nice imo.

For me who was present to the two cérémonies and saw P Charlene, she was very elegant and she was perfect .

And she is the most elegant princess of the gotha, she is really the princess sovereign now.

The black coat is gorgeous but it's all so boring. Black, beige, gray on repeat.

I like the two St Devote outfits but I agree about the repetitive neutral palette. That said, she looks so good in those high boots. Because the hairstyle is quite severe, it can both enhance and spoil her look. It needs a very carefully chosen palette and shade of make up to pull it off. Too heavy, and it is quite ageing and unforgiving, but get it just right and she can look stunning. The harsh sunlight of the Rome visit plus the lighting in the Vatican palace didn't help.

Usually love everything she wears but not liking her latest look. Hair much too short make up too strong and I'm not a fan of the oversized coats. Hope she gets back on track soon.

I love this entire ensemble. The navy colour really suits her and I love her take on fashion. The coat is gorgeously gored and ultra feminine but the neckline owes more to fashion than sense, Charlene's remedy is both elegant and practical.

The boots are very elegant and look to be suede as do her matching gloves. The ultra-short hairstyle frames her gamine look so well and the lipstick makes a wonderful statement.

I love her hair I think it looks good on her. It is also easier to manage than long hair.

I found it interesting to see how the bulkiness of the scarf in each outfit alters her apparent proportions across the shoulders. Looks better-balanced in my opinion

I go back and forth on HSH's haircut, but the cut and tailoring of that navy/black coat almost makes me faint with pleasure. It is simply gorgeous...perfect!

I am totally on board with Charlene's gamine hairstyle. It is uniquely her and suits her very fine features. But the coat . . . gorgeous, perfect, I love it. Actually, there is nothing I don't like about this ensemble. Charlene is definitely her own woman when it comes to style.

I think gamine suits Charlene too, but something rubs me wrong about the back of her head....it looks almost flat as a board. Too severe or something.

But from the front it's great!

My thoughts too. It's much too short at back

This could be a photo-shoot direct from a fashion magazine. As such, it has it's chic, but something about it is not appealing overall on a personal level. Feels very stand-offish. Unusual.

While it's her choice, I do agree that the longer length in hair, still short, but more soft, was far more appealing and 'accessible'. It's almost like she's a different person these days since the birth of the twins. Interesting impression created imo. I hope it's a phase.
