I just find it odd that Charlene appears to be inappropriately casual in her dress on this trip. IMO, that is just not right at the consort to a head of state on a trip of this nature.

I think both she and Letizia subscribe to the same school of thought about daywear which is casual and inappropriate for the occasion. This dress is just so wrong in cut, color and style and I wouldn't wear it anywear, let alone on a state visit to Germany!

I agree with you. Leitizia is often quite under-dressed, though never when she is representing her country with another head of state.

That's a bad look all the way around.

It seems like it's too big for her body!
She seems like a tourist who visited Germany
But i have seen worse outfits than this.

I love the color of the outfit, it is really harmonic on her face, but this outfit is something that keeps someone in mind (because of the color and the weird style it has), so i don't think it is a perfect choice for wearing it so soon If you consider that she wore it just a month ago in the GP . Maybe after some time from the Grand Prix, it would be better.
Anyway, i think it is too out of place for the atmosphare.

I still like it, but I think it looked a bit better last time together with a different hairstyle:

I looove her appearence!
At least she is so chic that helps her clothes to look better on her if they are themselves not that good!

She is starting to look really questionable.... IMO the what is going on here question. I am stunned the looks are more for shopping or a casual private affair than something formal like a visit to another country and the no makeup little glamour ... I see some "charming " patronising comment about getting one's "jollies" somewhere else in an earlier post and though I 'm certain this comment was not suuposed to sound as terrible as it read, I am certain that Charlene is able to do a whole lot better than she has of late.
Albert's comment that he likes he look better without makeup and so on her been taken to new hieghts here ... what is going on and will it stop she looks awful IMO.

I like the turquoise pantsuit and especially the evening gown. The beige outfit at the museum (automotive museum?) not so much. Not bad for her first official (not state) visit as Princess Consort but I am sure she can do better as she demonstrated in the UK this spring and in Berlin in the autumn. I don't mind the lack of jewelry which seems in keeping with her personal style and with the times. It is still early days in building up her working wardrobe and figuring out what she likes and doesn't like.

The beige from today is another disappointment. With those sleeves she looks like she could take flight. It actually also looks as if one of the buttons is about to pop open; as if it's too tight on her.

Is it possible that she is intentionally going without much makeup, jewelry and more casual due to the economy in Europe currently??? IOW, could she be downplaying the "glam"?

No, I don't think that's it at all. I think she's just not into baubles.

I may not personally like some of her outfits, but I don't think it's appropriate for her to wear her sunglasses on her head on official visits.

You took the words out of my mouth . I've noticed that about both of these women as well. They can pull out all the stops when it comes to evening engagements, but seem to miss more than hit during daytime. As for the shirt-dress, it's horrendous. Looks like an over-sized button-down shirt with a belt in the middle. I won't wear it anywhere public (maybe use it as lounge-wear at home), because it's absolutely unflattering.

I agree about the sunglasses on the head thing, really too casual.

I actually like the beige dress and sandals, but can't abide the no makeup. Minimal makeup to look "normal" in person rather than for the camera is one thing, this appears way too casual.

She's in Germany whose economy is growing faster than any other in Europe, so I can't imagine that's it. If she was in Greece or Portugal I could understand it, but not in Germany.

There seems to have been some sort of falling out with Armani who used to successfully dress Charlene almost all the time. At some stage that all changed and she now favours Akris, whose outfits are generally awful.

I don't like this last outfit, but the other two were lovely. She is very undertstated and can be, because she carries most thing off so well.
