There is room for any kind of personality in beauty and elegance. Charlene will be "The discreet charm of the aristocracy" (Bunuel' sslightly different film title). Other queens were very impressive, each in her own way. What a delight to be exposed to so many cultures, each in its most refined incarnation.
Oooh, that's a nice post, love the words and agree!

Princess Charlene at the annual charity soccer match in Monaco on May 22, looking lovely in a simple,
casual look right for the occasion:

You were right though; the buttons do look lovely. They save the blouse from being overly formal and boring.
Overall, nice look on Charlene.

Nice outfit for the event, and I really like the navy sweater with the accent buttons.

I like the two shades of color on the front but I am not fan of such prints on outfits. Her overall looked nice, simple and appropriate for the event.

Really liked Charlene's look at the evening reception at Buckingham Palace - the dress was lovely and yes she stuck to he rpastel colour but i think this time is worked perfectly.

Wasnt so keen on the satin blue suit for the Windsor Castle lunch

Her sandals look invisible which are pretty cool.
I like her jacket but I do like her pants, the shade is off. A more tan colored would've worked nicer.

The last two outfits were disappointing imo. I hate the two-coloured jacket and the last outfit I found too casual, Albert is in a suit after all. Ugly shoes.
