Its ok in an evening gown or at the beach but not for the type of events she is attending. I don't care if it is the Mediterranean, it is tacky.
She is wearing a cardigan as cover up .... she can probably take it off for more formal evening wear. She isn't doing anything "tacky" ... if she had appeared without the cardigan THEN maybe yes. The cardigan is clearly made to go with the dress since the trim on the sleeves matches the dress. There may well be straps under sweater. It looks like one of those clever day into evening wear outfits, IMO.

I love the dress and the color of shoes that she chose to go with it. Not sure about the cardigan. I think it covers up a good thing.

Love the outfit. The color looks lovely on her. I will say that she looks tired in these pictures.

I like everything about Charlene's look when meeting the Croatian President and his wife. She looked very chic and elegant. The style and color of the dress was very complementary and pairing it with the cardigan worked well. For me, the dress - in green - has a busy feel about it and the cardigan toned it down (as both are green, I think it is the change of fabric that helps to break it up). Her hair, the shoes and jewerly were perfect matches. I even like the colored nails!

Oh, and yes, I agree that a fringe suits her!

I am in total agreement with you on this. The ensemble was really very attractive. Great colour on her and the small layers gave it a very soft and feminine look. The matching jacket is really elegant and there is nothing about this outfit that immediately screams "my shoulders are naked under this because I really want to be "tacky"!

I am at a loss at the continual carping about Charlene being "tacky" or downright gauche. I think she is making a fantastic start to her life as the wife of a Sovereign. She is trying new makeup, hairstyles (love the fringe) and clothes styles. The green ensemble is really quite daring as not many people can pull off that colour and we rarely see anyone wearing anything quite so brightly jewel coloured unless it is on someone like Queen Margrethe, so Charlene scores on the adventurous scale and she does so effortlessly.

Boring but safe. It's a good choice after all.

She looks lovely. I love her hair style and earrings. The dress is elegant. I think a necklace would have livened it up a bit.

She is very good. Simple and classy. Her dress suits her very well. It remids me the drrss Pcs Letizia worn when the French President visited Spain.
I like Charlene. She has something on her very touching. A general elegance.

I would say, "Modern elegance" -- I like it!

The dress is pretty and elegant, especially the neckline. But why brown shoes?!

To me screen they look "bronze" not simply brown.

I agree. Dark bronze is a deep rich colour and looks very elegant. If she had worn black shoes I think it would have looked a little too funereal for her. If she had worn black strappy sandals it would have looked a little to "Cocktail Party".

Excellent choice. I think she nailed the situation absolutely correctly, from her hair to her signature one peice of jewellery, in this case a pair of beautiful pearl earrings.

I like the simple black dress on Charlene, wish she had worn a brooch or something!

I thought so too; the dress is nice but looks rather unrelieved. A pretty piece of jewelery would help.

(Also, I thought the shoes looked jarring; I think they should match the dress- or else be an extreme change, like purple or red. The brown doesn't add anything).
