As others said, (too) safe, simple, abit boring. No dazzle but I love the hairstyle & Charlene looked best of the Monaco ladies for me that evening.

I like the dress and the make up.
The hair is not my cup of tea but perfect for the occasion!

As for this ring:

It's the engagement all right but the eternity ring is new. Her wedding band is quite simple white gold and platinum.

I love this dress, elegant and simple. What it needed was some jewels. A brooch at the waist in front, a bracelet it would be perfect imo.

Great outdoor look for snowy conditions and I like the scarf as well.

The woman next to Charlene has got a scarf in the same style.
Maybe a gift?
Or a nice gesture of Charlene wearing a scarf in a national style.

Well melina, you can't pretend that everybody see her beautiful and perfect like you do.
She could have done better. Get used to other people's opinion.

It's like me saying that you never like what Caroline wears, which is true, you never do.

I don't like this dress, she looks like a sausage, but of course comparing to what Caroline was wearing, she was looking much better. I like though how she did her hair and the simple black headband contrasting with her blonde hair
I don't know what happened to Monaco's royals this year, their fashion in the Rose Ball was a total mess.

Yes, a woman with a traditional Lapland dress told that she saw that Charlene was having cold and asked from the people in her company, could she give Charlene a scarf. Charlene said yes, the woman gave her the scarf and Charlene was very pleased with it.

A very thoughtful gesture and the scarf goes so well with the coat, it could have been one of Charlene's. Thanks for this, LadyFinn.

The scarf is really nice, and gives the whole look a little bit of a personality. Lovely, overall.

Princess Charlene's a lovely lady, but I didn't like what she wore to the Rose Ball this year.

The dress was okay, but she has worn way better, especially last year, nobody but nobody could top her when it came to the fairytale magical dresses she wore, in particular that Swan type gown she wore to Prince William's pre-wedding dinner.

This one doesn't come close, but it wasn't bad either. However, the hairdo I didn't like, the bun looked fake, like she used a huge hairpiece, not natural. Though I know the 60's was all about those big puffy bouffant hairdos, lol.

Anyhow, she was still lovely, she's doing a great job as First Lady of Monaco!

I love it; it's simply, elegant and very flattering. Great hairstyle too.

- The dress
- Close up
- Hair

I think it's an elegant dress and safe for her figure. I love the hairstyle, she looks so sweet!

Exactly my thoughts!!!! Lacking of a bit extra glitter, especially on the ears

Boris, I couldn't agree more about the jewelry. If ever there was an outfit that SCREAMED the need for chandelier diamond earrings, this was it IMO.....

She's young and beautiful. She needs none of the 'overlay' that age needs to look dazzling. She looks free and natural - brilliant! I continue to be impressed with her style instincts. Letting that head float above those shoulders on her long neck - without distraction - pure poetry.

Reminds me of Audrey Hepburn.
