Love, Love the gown and jewels! But like the other posters I just find her hair too short and severe to be attractive.

it's almost an undercut like Ronaldo and other footballers are wearing these days. too extreme for a woman.

Only someone with Charlene's carriage and bone structure can carry such a hairstyle and at the same time look elegant and sophisticated.

Just because she has the features and bone structure to pull of this kind of hair cut/style, it really does not suit her. If she just maybe put some kind of effort into styling it, it may work. fluff it up, put ssome kind of curl on the top, gel it back, anything...it would be a vast improvement than laying lying flat and stuck to her head. ugh!

Duke of Marmelade , some footballers are wearing also ponytails as Kate and other princesses!
Charlene was very stunning at the council board and at the gala
She was very smart and sophicated

Some like her short hair other don't like, and hair are growing but during these last days she was very elegant and stunning

I love that Charlene has her own style. That she Doesnt go for the traditional tiara friendly royal hair we see among other Royal women. Two of my favorite royal ladies hair wise are Charlene and Letizia when she has her bob. But I feel they suffer the opposite issue. Letizia hair looks worse when she lets her bob grow out too much, and its in awkward between stage. Charlene is the opposite, she is fabulous with a pixie but she seems to go too severe. Even an inch longer would do wonders

As for this outfit, the top reminds me of a bathing suit cover or 80s workout

But the skirt looks amazing, love the colors. A nice jacket over the shirt would have pulled it together and hid the awkward cut of the top.

I struggle to find anything sophisticated about this look. I loathe the top. This is a definite miss for me.

I love Charlene. She is a stunning woman. This outfit is ugly. And, yet, she looks well.

Princess Charlene had a meeting with the former mayor of New York on October 25 in a Roland Mouret dress:

Love both her nyc looks. She can pull off anything, the hair, checked skirt, you name it. Very sophisticated looks.

Love or loathe, it's her unconventional fashion choices that makes her the most interesting Royal to follow, fashion-wise. Personally, I think she's a style goddess and very stunning woman. 💕

Yes, I enjoy following her fashion more than any other royal lady and would never have thought it from the early days before she married Albert when there was little evidence that she was going to take risks and mix things up in the way she has done.
Would like to see a full length view of this latest dress.

I think Charlene tried the "princess" look and decided it just wasn't her. Her clothes have almost always been pared down and quite elegant but her hair was sucking the life out of her. She looks to have fine hair which is very hard to put up with any real finesse.

I truly believe that was one of the few updo's that made Charlene look wonderful but think the aigrette had a lot to do with it.

In this last one, the dress was amazing but the hair was a dead loss with her hair dressed so close it was almost scraped back!

It is interesting to note that when the hair got the chop out came the earrings and they were, and continue to be, as stunning as indeed does her more streamlined yet dramatic fashion. She also discovered dramatic lipstick!

Since the birth of the twins, I think she is more into "wash and wear" and hair she can do herself in as short a time as possible.

Yes thank you for putting this together. I agree the long hair didn't really work for her, but I really liked the fringe in the first pics. I remember one of her early appearances with the twins when she wore her hair in this way and I thought she looked fabulous.

One thing I think we can be sure of with Charlene. If you don't like her hair right now, don't despair as she will surely change it! I really enjoy this about her personal style.
