Gorgeous dress! I'm loving all the detail work on it. Her hair looks great too!

I'm underwhelmed by that black coctail dress she wore to the exhibit..while nothing is wrong with the cut itself.I just find it so flat and boring..also,I can't understand her aversion to put on one big statement jewelry.A diamond brooch,or her diamond bracelets would've been nice.A smashing accessory could always enliven a boring dress imo.

I love this dress. I think she should wear this style more often - it play down her broad shoulder.

I like this black dress
much better than this one

The first dress is so classy, elegant cut, doesnt need anything else while the second one is quite plain, not liking the big ruffles.

Two little black dresses in a row was a bit uninspired. Loving the hairstyles though!

I couldn't agree more.
The first pic/dress is more stylish.
The second one, especially from the backside, is very plain and by Albert wearing a bow-tie and a white shirt it's sort of inappropriate for the occasion IMO.

The first black dress is okay, however a plain black dress like this must be assessorised properly with something substantial like a good size brooch. I do not think the single string of pearls is enough here. Her hair looks lovely and the overall look is good. I do not think the second dress is right for her at all. The fabric looks cheap and the dress is not nearly sophistoicated enough for Prince Albert's bow-tie look. Maybe an elegant necklace or brooch would have "lifted" this outfit.

Bow ties are not restricted to formal wear. Albert is wearing a suit, not a tuxedo at the second set of photos.

Charlene could wear, IMO, a paper bag, with or without jewelry, and look teriffic.

Whatever Charlene wears she always looks stunning; every inch a Princess.

I'm agreeing with those who have stated that the first black dress looks better than the second. The first one is indeed more classy and elegant.

I like the first black dress as well; it's your simple, classic little black dress. I wouldn't have been averse to seeing a brooch or a long-stranded pearl necklace, though, and perhaps a pearl bracelet. And I'm loving her hairstyle in that photo; it softens her features and is just a flattering look for Charlene.

Princess Charlene at the Parish Saint-Martin' Centenary Anniversary Celebration Mass on November 13,
2011 in Monaco, wearing a beige dress and a black coat.

A litte colourful highlight is missing, maybe a little scarf or a coloured necklace, brooch or something like this.

I can't really tell about the coat because of the watermark but really doesn't look good with the dress. She looks very washed out.

not really a good look. Bad hair, hideous dress and coat

She likes to wear black these days
And she looks like she didn't care for a perfect hairdo.
But I like the whole outfit.

She doesn't look bad at all (to me anyway). The only improvement I could suggest is a darker color for the dress.

I do quite like the outfit but I just think she looks very washed out and under the weather.
