I don't mind the sporty look of these photos. As someone else said, the Monagesque princely family has always been a little different from other royal families. They've long been more likely to let loose in looks that are of-the-moment or suited to the occasion instead of always aspiring to look "timeless." For a princess who comes to them by way of being a very serious athlete and who has made sporting events and swimming lessons a mainstay of her current work, the occasional photo shoot in stylish workout gear seems on-message.

That said, I really don't like the fit of those tops. There's something about the way the mesh part flares out and splits up the side that looks clumsy to me. I also find it strange that she wore essentially the same top in two different colors rather than changing into an entirely different shirt.

For the arrival in Burkina Faso yesterday, January 10, Princess Charlene recycled a black outfit with culottes and a red bird detailing on the shoulder:

Princess Charlene's Fashion and Style Part 15: February 2017 -

It's rare to see Charlene recycle and I wouldn't have expected her to do this for a state visit. I prefer the earlier outfit.

I'm going to correct myself having just looked at the current events thread and found out this isn't a state visit. Howevere, I still think it's rare for Charlene to recycle.

I really like this outfit, especially the little red that just livens it up.

Impressively unique. Definite style. Not my style, but all hers. Nice.

She looks great - I like the outfit. Don't love her hair swept back like this.

Umm, I tried looking from different angles, but I still don't like the shoulder part.

A lovely choice for this occasion. I much prefer a less severe hairstyle.

It is nice she wore a dress in honor of the country who is receiving her and her,husband

I like this dress who fits her very well, her hair are more long .

What a great choice for this event. I'm so glad Char is filling such a unique niche in Royal Dressing. I never find her over the top and love her mix of classic taste crossed with pushing boundaries.

Just the stud earrings? And did anyone catch the shoe?

I am not a fan of either of her culotte looks. The pants look awkward on her, to my eye. That dress is gorgeous though, and quite the diplomatically appropriate nod to their hosts.

I'm not a fan of Charlene's latest outfit either. I want to like it, but it's not my personal cup of tea.

Charlene's evening dress was designed by a local Burkina Faso designer, Bazem'se Couture. He made it on a very short notice before the dinner!

Nothing from the visit made me go wow infact it was the opposite with most of the wardrobe choices.

Given the economy of Burkina Faso, this was likely deliberate. When it is easy to overdress in the country visited, I think appropriate that royals dress with sensitivity toward the average income of the populace. JMO.
