Princess Charlene does look lovely at the Grand Prix gala dinner, especially her hair and makeup. However, I am not certain about the dress and shoes. Something is not quite right. The bodice and skirt of the dress do not work well together and the shoes are not complimentary to the outfit.

She is so elegant in her choices. I always hope for 1 more piece of jewelry but this is not her style.

Very nice all 'round. Her hair is growing out fast - she'll be needing a trim. Short hair, when growing out, gets gnarly at a certain point - but she's doing fine with it. Wonder if the short hair is a permanent choice or something she was just trying out. We'll see.

P.S. Charlene also looks radiant - she is oozing pure relaxation and happiness.

Charlene herself looks great, I like her hair & jewellery. I dislike the shoes and the top part of the dress is very odd / plastic.

I'm not sure I like the dress. The skirt with its' different lengths is throwing me off. The dress is a miss, at least in my eyes. Her make-up and hair are great.

I agree. There was something really off about the cut and proportion of this dress. Actually- I thought there was something off about everything she wore this weekend. I can't figure out her style- at the Jubilee weekend in England, she looked fantastic and so elegant. Is it the tailoring that is different?

The recent black evening dress - The skirt part looked like it was a lining or made from cheap material, it was also too shiny. The whole dress didn't seem to be Charlene.

The sequined top is alright; it's the waist and material of the skirt that look odd to me. I don't mind the asymmetrical hemline, but don't care for the black and beige shoes even though she was probably picking up the colors of her top. But I do like her hair and earrings.

iDK if only the upper part is visible right now, but from that pic alone I think she is wearing a pretty outfit and I especially like the color. Her hair looks very unglamorous though.

You can see almost the entire dress on newscom, you have also a photo of profil.
I like the color of the dress, she has yet a tired face cause of her sore throat of the end of the last week end.

The dress looks fine but it's a pity we can't see it clearly.
Dark blue is a great color for Charlene!!
