I adore the cream suit. It looks fantastic on her. Wouldn't change a thing. The Taupe/bronze dress is not my favorite. It's not Charlene at all. I just don't think the dress would look good on anyone. I actually love the color on her though and the fabric is very nice.

I think Charlene's caramel suit was fabulous. Original, elegant and the perfect length. Love the gloves and shoes.

The evening dress was beautiful but I think the harsh makeup clashed with the sublte colour of the velvet and made both seem to clash with each other.

Her daytime make up was so perfect I have a hard time understanding the need to apply thick black eyeliner that looks like it has been applied with a trowel!

What an awful dress, not helped by the horrendous make up and what seems to be gallons of wax or grease in her hair. Although I have to say that, for me, Charlene's outfits are generally overshadowed by the fact that she looks unhappy and uncomfortable almost all the time.

Horrendous velvet dress and wrong choice of colour.Akris design and colour palette rarely flatter her(except her daytime outfit,which I think was gorgeous)...and coupled with the horrible eye make-up,she ended up looking like a vampire at the opera house,argh!

That's exactly what I thought.
I don't like these black eyes. And I would have loved more bling bling.

I love this gown and her whole look, very chic IMO. Color is tough to wear but its a stunning gown.

I loved the daytime outfit but dislike the velvet gown. My thought was that the top was too bulky for Charlene, I didn't like the color for her and the harsh makeup is not a good look at all. I also didn't care for all that goop in her hair.

Don't know what to think. Maybe a tiara would have helped here. The colour is not one of the best and the fabric is very heavy for an evening gown.

Hope so much to see the Lorenz Baumer tiara one of these days.....

Her daytime outfit was lovely but missing was a hat or headpiece.

Evening gown went wrong, the style, the slit and the longer back part didn't work well. The color was even worse to start with, it was not her color nor is it a color of someone of her age.

I like the dress. With tiara and sash it would have looked good, I think. Don't like her hair and make-up.

I don't really like the outfit mostly due to the fact that I don't like beige/peach. But Charlene does look immaculate and to the people who complain about her hair they should be happy about this style. She looks so chic.

Very chic outfit Charlene is wearing.
Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

The suit is so Japanese royal style - Empress Michiko wore lots of similar designs. Perhaps Charlene got the inspiration during her audience with the Empress.

THIS. Her daytime outfit and makeup were sheer perfection..all she needed to do for evening was apply an extra coat of mascara and fresh lipstick!

Her evening gown was beautiful, hair and makeup not so much.

Princess Charlene looked fine. My guess is that the outfit is by Akris.
Luv everything about the beige outfitt including the gloves.
She looks so fresh and happy in those photos.

I like the grey/black suit, chic & professional. The little black dress is superb!

It looks like I am the only poster who doesnt like the cream daytime outfit, I find it horribly oldfashioned, hate the visible zipper and the cape around the arms. The skirt is pretty but doesnt really match.

To say something positive, great shoes!

The evening outfit looks great but I dont like the fabric and the colour. Horrible eye make up.

All in all quite disappointing compared to what Charlene can pull off!

The beige outfit for the Monaco national day is absolutely beautiful. Chic, elegant and so very classical. I do love cape style jacket. What a lovely look for Princess Charlene. I just feel she could have done something a bit more interesting with her hair to compliment the outfit.

agree about the hair. It wasn't a good style for the outfit.
