Charlene looks lovely. The dress is pretty and very summery. Such dresses suit her well. I loved her hairstyle, her hair is at a much nicer length now.

She looks great! Her hair is a little longer and has a little fluff to it, which looks good. And she looks happy.

I'm still trying to decide whether or not I like Charlene's latest look. The colours are nice but at the same time I'm generally not a fan of jumpsuits so that's a big factor of my dislike.

I like it - it's summery and that kind of blue shirt material is very fashionable this summer. I think she looks good..

I am not a fan of her severe style these days but she does look nice in this picture.

I dont care for jumpsuits but this is so unflattering, especially all the pull of the fabric upwards.

From one extreme to another,the all black outfit is a tad severe and more suited for a funeral.

Really like this picture of her. Very classy minimalist look imo. So comfortable.

The black color is no more the color of funeral

I liked the jumpsuit which has beautiful colors, , I liked also the T shirt and pants of today
less the black top and pants but the handicaped persons were happy to see her with Albert

Her dress are longer and it is well.

I thought the jumpsuit was very elegant and summery, the red T and white trousers were nothing special but practical for today's more casual atmosphere - I liked the red and white Monegasque colours and the Red Cross logo.

I don't like the black - she wears it well but it's not really a summer daytime colour or enormously cheerful.

Waiting to see tomorrow's outfit - she normally has a bit of fun with her Grand Prix clothes.

The first outfit is nice and great for the occasion.
I don't have much to write home to about Charlene's second outfit however; I agree with the posters who have said that it seems too severe and also too dark for a warm day.

I tire of the whole black is a funeral color the fashion industry has made a whole business out of the little black dress. And it's not selling to funeral goers. Black is seen as elegant, clean, sharp, professional depending on how worn. One doesn't need to be in bright colors to look summery.

That said the black looks a bit hot. Hopefully lighter weight material. A lot of it for this time of year. But she looks nice

She looks a bit more cool and comfortable in earlier look.

No, bright colours aren't necessary to look summery but IMO she doesn't look summery here - perhaps if it wasn't head to toe I wouldn't have that impression. She looks sombre and it looks hot.

She looks wonderful - she always looks fabulous in red. I like the asymmetrical hem and how it drapes and sweeps and I like the pattern on the material.
