by the way: all the fashion websites said good things about that turquoise suit/thing minus the wrap.
and they all praised her on the gown.

Akris's designs should not be called couture. Some of Akris's outfits look as if they came from a cheap department store. Many outfits look like experiments, half-hatched ideas trying too hard to be innovative. There are so many fantastic fashion houses available, hmmm

They were in Ireland? Oddly enough, living in Ireland myself I don't remember any media coverage of the event. I have no idea what she wore in Ireland or Japan.

Her Armani wedding dress was pretty nice, although the blue trouser suit thing she wore for the civil ceremony was awful. She just seems to have decided that Akris is what she prefers which is such a shame since I don't think I've liked anything they've put her in.

Im glad to see Charlene repeat an evening gown finally.

Some more colour is needed to be injected into Charlene's outfits but it seems she favours beiges

she was in Ireland, she wore these, and this (earrings and bracelet by Repossi), this, this.

I found the blue trouser suit very beautiful specially after taking the jacket off.
she now seems to be favoring Dior, but Akris is a house that can make her anything she wants in 2 days or something. there was an interview with Albert(the director of the house) and he was saying that she calls him asking for something to be in few days or so without much time for fittings. Akris had only 3 weeks to make her 2 outfits of William's wedding, and I guess that was because she and M.r Armani had a bit of a fight.
she's finding her way, she started wearing Louis Vuitton. I guess we'll be seeing other designers soon.

Unlikely, but this would certainly explain a lot about the way the Akris stuff looks.
Among the regular royal favorite designers, only Natan is worse in terms of quality.

Such an old outfit for such a young women. The color doesn't do her any good and going out without makeup doesn't help the look as she looks quite washed-out IMO. The sleeves of the dress is too wide and makes the overall look baggy. The overall also looks boring, a nicer belt and accessories would've worked really well.

The wedges are great! I think they are by Louis Vuitton.

That's a nice outfit though I'm not in love with the sleeves. It's a new and unique look to Charlene's wardrobe or atleast I haven't seen it before. I also like her wearing her sunglasses on her head, if it was a problem someone would have told her to stop it.

Her choice in fashion on this short trip was very strange.
Nothing new, nothing great.
It was ok but we all know she can do a lot better.

Maybe if it was an official state visit it would have been different.
Going to an automobil museum is not what I call representing my country.

^^^Thanks, those observations were wicked but on the mark. And I just noticed in some of the photos how much the bandage wrap not only accentuated her shoulders, but her chest as well. I can deal with the color better than this style.

Oh, it's just so easy to find fault with this woman, isn't it? Good time for me to make the Cambridge Cones comparison. Nobody is perfect.

As for Tom & Lorenzo, bless their hearts. If they got their hands on the aqua pantsuit, they'd be fighting over who would wear it.

It's not that it's easy, it's just obvious, just like the Cambridge Cones. These are detractions in the outfit that are being commented on.

Charlene looks good in the Olympic uniform, although I think I like the white loafers better with this outfit.

Nice look, its suits her quite a bit. I also like the red shade of the top against her. Such skirt lengths looks great on her.

Since the Tom & Lorenzo comparison of that aqua pantsuit to the very unfortunate 'Star Trek - Next Generation' costumes is not only quite witty but makes perfect sense as well, ridiculing the writers' sexuality is deemed an appropriate last resort to dismiss their criticism? How very unpleasant.

Ouch! I certainly won't want to be on the receiving end of their reviews of my attire (Heaven knows what they'd come up with ). Unfortunately, they are right on the money with the pant suit (though I do love the color). These things are very amusing to read, however, I don't think any of us would be laughing if these remarks were going in our direction. I'm not being a whiner, just making an observation.

I think she looks great in the Olympic team uniform. Her light complexion is suited for bold tones. Love how the red looks on her. Wish she'd wear that shade a bit more. And as for the hair, I don't see any resemblance to the late Princess Diana. I think Charlene looks lovely with that style; it gives her a youthful bounce.
