The dress is fine and as XenaCasaraghi says it somehow doesn't draw attention to her broad shoulders. But, I wish she would wear some different colours. It's almost always beige or black.

The dress is all right, and Charlene can pull that type of style off. She looks nice.

You should see what people are saying about these short dresses in Catherine fashion tread.

I agree with you if they want to wear short dresses let them whether or not it in fashion. They are not showing us anything distasteful. If you got legs flaunt them

I can't make my mind up about the one shoulder dress - another view of it might help. The shortness doesn't bother me. it's more the minimalist style - in this instance it doesn't quite work for me but I don't know why ( perhaps the lack of colour again)

It doesn't work for me either, Elly. Can't put my finger on it. Perhaps it's because I've always thought one-shouldered dresses should be reserved for evening. It looks funny in the day time.

I thought the dress was a little too short but I like it.

I thought for a day event this dress looked too formal, especially when Charlene is standing beside a person who's wearing a flack jacket and T-shirt. It would have been of more interest as well if the fabric had some design or pattern to it.

personally I dont care a fig what she wears. She is tall, slender and pretty. She can pull of almost anything. I just wish she would DO SOMETHING WITH THAT BLASTED STRINGY HAIR!!!!
Sorry! as a stylist with 25 yrs experiece, it bugs the heck out of me to see someone with tons of potential and them not making any bit of change. A little bit a layers, some soft waves would make a world of difference to her face and to the clothes she wears. oh well! I know people are afraid of change and maybe she is one of them!

Bad hair seems to be the constant thread amongst the princesses.

Yes, it would be nice to see Charlene vary her hairstyles more; I like when she wears it down and curling softly around her face. That's a lovely look for her.

Love the coat on her.
I wish she would experiment with more colors though.

LOL. Charlene is wearing a blue dress and she's covering it with the beige coat we already saw at the Christmas Village in Monaco.
Charlene, please give us something to talk about...

Beige color should be forbidden for such a blond person. Caramel OK, but this beige! It is so sad.
Is she stopping to wear Armani?? He has nice grayand "earth" colors, very nice for her.

That's what I was wondering about too. Or Lagerfeld? With them Charlene seems to risk a little bit more.

I like the coat, but a darker color would have made her look even better.

Maybe she's playing it safe considering the critiques on the Duchess of Cambridge!

Very pretty color and I like the cutout with the bow. I'm assuming the watery blobs on the dress are a result of the copyright across the photo and not the fabric itself since I see it across her arm.

What an attractive detail to the back of this dress. The hairstyle is also very pretty
