Agree 100%!!!

I'd like to add, to me the dress looks ill fitted/too big on Charlene. But she looks very alive & alert, not so semi-paralyzed like on other events.

You know, that's probably what I liked most in Charlene's appearance during this event; she looked alive and happy. I did think the dress suited her, but her glowing appearance was far more fetching.

wow she is 5'11 that is tall, she must be the tallest princess ever, but that pink dress look blah but i love the colour, any she seems happy with was great compare to the oscar maybe she was happy because of the 800 people that were there to see her, that is a cool turn out!!

Charlene at a swim training center in Australis

Outfit by Akris. Like the pink dress this suit blends too closely with her skin tone IMO and look slightly to big on her arms. I like the hair and makeup.

I like the color on the model much better since Charlene's outfit looks too washed out.

Well I'm going to have to be the loner on this one. I think the peach/pink dress Charlene wore was very unflattering, bordering on ugly. I also hated the way she styled her hair, and from the pictures I have seen it looked like she had raccoon eyes. I will say that the shoes were lovely.
The suit is better than the dress, though the hair, skin and color of the suit are a little too similar. Despite this, Charlene looks beautiful as always.

I like Charlene's pink dress! She looks good imo. Also happy to see her smiling.

If the color of the suit were a little darker, Charlene would have looked absolutely fabulous. The beige blends in with her natural coloring, and makes her look rather washed out. Otherwise, the look is nice.

The pink dress, and the gold sandals, are way over the top for a small town in Australia like Bendigo. Being "properly" dressed as a royal has often more to do with being in sync with an audience than personal finances.

Her genuine smile and cheerfulnes enjoying what she's doing is what comes thru though despite her being overdressed.

I agree as well. She looked nice in the suit though.

I have to agree and I'm sorry to say, but I didn't like the pink dress at all. The color is nice, but the cut and all just doesn't suit Charlene with her broad shoulders. Hairstyle and make-up look a bit sloppy to me and all in all the outfit is rather too glitzy for my taste. And I actually love glamor and I also actually like Charlene's style. Dunno what it is, but it seems all wrong to me.

Nevertheless, she seemed very happy.

To me the suit looks very dull, the shirt underneath should have been a different colour. Not liking the lose cut, trousers look too big while the closed top looks too tight.

The suit is nice in color & style but I find the jacket a bit too tight when closed.

That is such a pretty, elegant outfit but since she is always in the neutral colors I would've loved to see that suit in a plum color which would've also looked just as nice.

Yet another bland, forgettable Akris number. It's just so boring.

I think the style of this outfit is great.
But it could have been a stronger color, red or dark blue.
I love Charlene's legs!!!

Both pants suit and dress looked odd on her IMO the trousers too long I think and the coat ill fitting. The pink dress made here look huge not fat huge and the shoulders particularly badly fitted ... custom made they say mmmm

A nice suit, but a dull color.
