She's been married less than a year and you already thought that time enough to think all was lost?

That's the spirit!

Isn't it amazing? She looks like a goddess, I am not exaggerating! I wonder who designed that gown?

Charlene looked nice at the luncheon - a very elegant and sophisticated choice in a great color for her. It was, however, too shiny for me. I like the shoes, but I am undecided whether they complemented or made the look one that was a little too blue. I liked her hairstyle.

At the dinner she looked absolutely gorgeous...stunning! Wow. Gown, hair, makeup, jewels, shoes - Charlene perfected classic elegance and understated glamour, sophisticated femininity, and regal presence. It is not only my favourite look from the night, but - for me - also one of her best...so very, very beautiful.

Dress Back View

From all sides Charlene looks regal and elegant - and mature, nothing wrong with that. She reminds one of a serious born-to-the-cloth princess.

Absolutely gorgeous!
I don't even mind the dress is pale beige / light pink; it's really beautiful and elegant.

Charlene looked great.I liked both outfits but my favourite one is the pink one.
She looked fantastic in it.Pink is really a very nice colour on blondes:Charlene,Mette Marit,Mathilde
I love her short hair but I think I will get bored with it within a few months

This is the dress she should've worn at the Oscars, rather than at Buckingham Palace. The dress itself is ok, although the top of it emphasises her broad shoulders. I don't quite know what's going on with the hair, but at least it's better than the 1980s bouffant from lunchtime.

I just can't quite get past the feeling that she's trying too hard here, which is odd because for most of her marriage she's looked like she's not really trying at all. (..)
But, at least there was no beige, so that's an improvement.

I thought she was the most elegant lady at both Windsor and Buckingham Palace. She really rose to the occassion.

She should've had her roots done before the event. If blonds aren't going to be super disciplined about getting them touched up on a regular basis, they should just stop dying it and go natural. Mette-Marit has had a similar problem before also. Dark roots with blond hair is just always unattractive.

Wow Charlene in this dress really shouldn't be photographed with Camilla. It really just makes Camilla's dress look even less regal and more unattractive. That night Charlene was like a star whose brightness consumed those around her.

Blonde hair is not like gray hair. In adults it does not spring from the scalp brilliant blonde but rather darker and when it sees the light it gets lighter. Any woman with totally blonde hair at the roots gets it out of a bottle!

I agree, Charlene looked fantastic. Love the dress and especially its cut, simple yet elegant and sexy. Perfect!

Charlene obviously dies her hair a lighter blond colour. She had clearly visible dark roots yesterday, which means she's not getting the colour renewed soon enough to minimise the unsightly line between light blond hair and darker brown non-died hair. Here she is in 2007, no dark roots showing here:

I must be blind as a bat because all I see is that she has lost the excessively tanned look, for which her skin will thank her in twenty years, and she wore a much lighter and softer pink lipstick that had a satiny effect which makes her lips appear a little larger.

I've read that the current trend among the rich and famous is to have black roots dyed in and then have the rest of the hair coloured the desired shade of blonde, the purpose being to give the impression that the client is a natural brunette with no greys. I have noticed over the years that Camilla has had very black roots which I have always been perplexed by so perhaps this is the reason. I'd also like to say that I am equally perplexed at the regularity with which some posters enter this thread with nothing but vitriole to say against PC. We are all here to give opinions about things but I don't know why some people make a point of commenting negativley about royals they don't like.

IDK, unless she overoutlined her lips, they definitely appear plumper to me and somewhat alter her appearance.

Perhaps that there stands to be a hightened interest in what she wears? The British Royal Family attracting global media covereage unlike most other royal families.

Charlene really gets it right in Britain. Classically understated and demure. A complete vision of elegance. She plays to her strengths and wears softly subdued colours and shades that flatter her beautifully.

The dinner appearance is one of my favorite looks from Charlene. She does seem to being growing into her role as princess beautifully.
