Princess Charlene wearing this stunning red Carolina Herrere gala gown, not evening dress but a gala gown, is amazingly beautiful and the devine skirt is evokes the image of a ball or gala with romantic music and women in gorgeous gowns twirling beneath twinkling chandeliers.

Not a fan. Do t like the shiny material or odd pattern, looks like snake shedding skin. I do like her earrings.

I don't mind the shorter hair and I like the new hair colour but she doesn't need to match her foundation to it - her skin looks sallow/yellow and there is a clear demarcation line. I like the dress and earrings although not convinced silver earrings go with bronze/gold. Do we know the dress designer?

Nope, does not work! Top marks for trying different styles, but this one is no the unqualified success some of her evening gowns have been.

Thanks - I'm not a big fan of Akris although I quite like this. I can't help wondering if the silvery colour might have worked better as a contrast.

I really do not like it on her ... I think that it is her hair .. IMO it is too short. I just think it is all not for her she needs a softer look and then perhaps the gown may not be "hard" looking

The dress doesn't look like it's by Akris, it's not their style but it's something different. Charlene looks nice in that color but the dress is nothing special.

Of course...her hair is too short. I prefer the longer, softer look. But I thought the gala gown was nice, showed off her perfect figure. And her outfit at the horse racing event was elegant and practical.

Now the horse racing outfit I really like. Chic abd modern.

Even when I hate what she wears, what I love about Charlene is she takes chances. Definitely very modern princess. Some other royaks take chances from time to time but not at her level.

Yes, it is a shame she has her hair so short, but it will grow if she does not cut her hair before
The dress is nice and the earings that she already wore at an event are stunning.I think that she needed a collar

To day at the charity Mile, I found her very nice and elegant
She was better than yesterday evening.

PCh's dress choice was really unfortunate. IMO, most women would look terrible in this type of dress. Her hair is too short. She can look nicely with short hair, but this style is too boyish looking for her.
BTW, who is the woman in green dress next to PCh?
