Did you even bother to read the posts about what constitutes "Haute Couture" as opposed to "Fashion"?

That coat is truly horrid. Yet again more beige/camel or whatever you want to call it.

If Charlene is being styled, and fitted with custom made haute couture, she needs to sack her entire team. They're not doing her any favours.

The coat is a repeat, last time for some reason I quite liked it, this time, not so much. The whole outfit is a miss for me. Loving the new hairstyle though!

I don't know how to discribe this outfit. I have no words for it.
But her new haircut and her face are just lovely!

A horse blanket! Thank you, sesa, I was trying to think what it reminded me of but it just wouldn't come to me. I agree with you.

She also appears to be wearing cream bell bottoms that are simply too long for her. Are they 'in' now?

The jacket is a retread from the Japan trip. I agree, it does not look good unless it is perfectly aligned, as in photo #3.

That coat needs to go into the deepest recesses of a wardrobe and never, ever come out.

That collar is way too overwhelming for her; her head looks so small in proportion to it in the third picture. I'd donate it to the nearest horse stable as a blanket, as Sesa already commented it resembled.

I actually like the style of the jacket. A smaller collar would have made this outfit sleek avant-garde. Is the jacket by Akris?

When I saw this jacket first time she wore it weeks ago, I just hated it.
It has, however, somehow grown on me; the jacket appears to be quite comfortable, has a unique look I actually like the huge collar.

I like very much the jacket, she changed during the day the jacket with a rain coat I like also very much, I like her outfit she wore during the ceremony.
Charlene is beautiful, all she is wearing fit her very well.

In my opinion there's nothing haute couture about Princess Charlene's fashion choices of late; certainly not the colours, cuts (fit), fabrics or overall 'looks'. I'm a fan of hers and believe in her potential to shine, but she needs to fire her stylists/advisers without further ado. It's perfectly okay to develop a signature style that's uniquely her own, but it has to be a classic style that lives up to every occasion, complements her, and even more so, one that others would want to imitate. There have been some highlights in the past, but this year has certainly been a disappointment (to me) so far. Except perhaps her short haircut, which suits her.

I completely agree. The jacket is a mess. Don't care who's name is in the label.

It's not a bad looking jacket, she has definitely looked worse. But where is she that she would need to wear such a heavy coat?

(..) Anyway, while I would not wear it - couldn't wear it or want to wear it without a smaller collar - it's 'her'. Again it looks like gorgeous material. Cashmere?
