Strapless not a good idea to emphazise these huge shoulders. The white pants look quite ill-fitted.

Agree with you...I don´t like most strapless dresses and tops & I don´t to wear them because I´m always afraid they don´t stay where they should *lol*

Not too keen on her latest outfit. The jeans look like they're too big, and the strapless shirt is not doing her any favors.

Ooooh, noooooooo! Not her best outfit, for sure. That hideous flared leg must be coming back into fashion. Letizia wears it, now Charlene...who is next? I mentioned a couple of months ago that the '80s were returning. Hope everyone either likes that very unflattering trouser style...or learn how to sew, quickly. LOL

Charlene´s outfit at the lunch was totally wrong for the event. She looked like from outer space. A glittery strapless top that didn ´t suit her at all.

Im not a fan of strapless for royals at an official event or during the daytime. The top looks more evening look that daytime. She looks like she is going to trip over in those long pants which don't flatter her. Charlene does tend to do better at more official engagements than at normal official events IMO.

I wonder how Charlene got those huge shoulders. People say it is from swimming but I have no idea how that could affect the width of your shoulders. I must say the top makes her head look abnormally small. Anyway, I think she looks great and even if she does have broad shoulders it is very rarely that she doesn't make it work. The color of the shirt goes very well with her skin tone. The only thing I would change is make the shirt longer down and make the pants tighter around her waist. I think she looks rather good.

It is a very pretty top and it goes well with the white trousers. A nice day look. However, I felt the trousers were too long and spoilt the look somewhat. A simple necklace and earings would also have completed the outfit as her neck and shoulders do look very bare in the photograph.

I believe that it come from strong exercizing-swimming. Stephanie also has the same type of enomeous shoulders. Usually quite all swimmers gor broad shoulders.
This is the reason I hate when Charlene wears strapless tops, orizontal lines show ALL the width of her shoulders. In opposite, vertical lines make he upper body look smoother.

Although this isn't a favourite outfit for me, looking at the other female guests she appears to have got the dress code about right. The colours are very Riviera chic. Perhaps a long necklace or even a pashmina would have helped take the emphasis off those famous shoulders

I don't think it's flattering on her.

Her wardrobe seemed pretty in tune with other guests at the event. Seems to have been a relatively casual event.
Can someone please explain why women in particular seem to have such a problem with Charlenes shoulders/athletic physique. Her body looks great to me.

There is no problem with the shoulders but there is no need to emphasize them, either. Strapless tops or dresses do exactly that, the outfit is reduced to ALL SHOULDERS, and the wide stripes emphazise even more.

Princess Charlene at an event in La Turbie, France, today, September 29, 2011, wearing a combination
of a recycled top, coat and pants in light colours. The highlight of her outfit is the buttonhole, without
it it may have looked boring, but this way it looks great altogether.

Or it could be DNA. I don't think it's that big of a deal. She has a gr8 body.

The pants she wore with that strapless top look too big on her.
