The only thing I like about this gown is the shade of grey, but it doesn't look that great on Charlene. I think she would have looked better in a brighter color (and a different dress).

I don't care for this dress at all. The color is all wrong and I don't care for the little sheer capelet around her shoulders. Charlene could do so much better..

I think this is the nicest evening gown she has worn in a while. I also like how she changes her "look" be it make-up, hair whatever rather than seeing her styled the same way all the time.

I like the dress, the style and color. The thing that ruins the look is definitely the face and makeup; probably the worst she has ever looked.

I love this dress, brighter makeup would have helped her skintone, but I think it is beautiful!

I find the dress to look not so great on princess charlene and there is something a little off, but I can't put my finger on it....

Princess Charlene chose a gorgeous gown for the Rose Ball.
I love it; it's simply, elegant and very flattering. Great hairstyle too.

Another big disappointment from Charlene in a row. This dress doesn´t suit Charlene at all, and the hairdo doesn´t suit to the dress. Strapless gowns don´t look good on Charlene, and this doesn´t make an exception. If the dress would have been all black, it would have looked much better.

A very safe und utterly boring choice of dress... at least it's not in greige.
The hairdo is supposed to reflect the 'Swinging 60s' theme I guess, but it looks slightly comic on her.
I don't quite understand why she is so underbejeweled, what's with all her new jewelry - still on display for the tourists?

I see nothing elegant or Royal looking about this simple gown. Boring is putting it mildly.
I also wish she would learn to stand up straight.
Agree with Boris re her lack of jewels... She needs to step it up in that department.

Is this a new ring, or she has worn it before?
EDIT: Quite disappointed to say that it's her engagement ring. I thought it was a different one.
Thanks to Baroness of Books for providing the picture of the engagement ring from the same angle.

I'm not liking the dress. Perhaps if it didn't have that gold bit on the top it would have been all right. The whole looks is just off, in my opinion.

I like the dress of Charlene, she is the woman who wears the most beautiful dress , she has the hair do that the women wore in the years of the swinging London. the theme of this ball. The fringe fit her very well. She is really very beautiful and smiling .

Here's the same ring on another occasion, taken from Charlene's jewel thread:

I don't like the dress - it looks like a bandage across her chest - and the lack of jewels; surely not everything is on display for the tourists. Didn't she wear an interesting pair of earrings just the other night? And that strapless gown just cries out for some bling on her neck and a bracelet would not have gone amiss, either. I truly dislike her hairdo as well.

The whole appearance of Princess Charlene reminds me of empirical Jane Austen, which I like very much ....by the way, where did I hear once, that young beauties do not need jewelry.....
