I think she looks nice.
Nothing spectacular, but it's ok for the occasion!

She has chosen well for this event imo - sophisticated and slightly understated. I agree with previous posters about the makeup - but it's undoubtedly helped by the fact that she looks really happy and settled in her role. I think she's a brilliant ambassador for Monaco.

I like Charlene's minimalistic style but this outfit is a miss for me, its not simple & elegant but simple & cheap looking.

I also think the dress is kind of plain and boring looking. Also the bust area looks weird

People frequently seem to describe the dresses worn by various princesses as boring. Could someone please explain what an exciting dress looks like. It is just cloth after all, so I cannot imagine cloth as exciting. A roller coaster ride maybe, but cloth not so much.

I like the dress. Charlene looks good in navy blue and the dress fits her well. Not necessarily boring, but safe. I think that it has to be remembered that she was going to a reception at Buckingham palace. She could have done something to her hair though, kind of flat and lifeless.

I like it, I gotta say i was a bit let down when i saw that it was a floor length skirt, but it grew in me. i like it now, the makeup and bracelet make me love it.

it might be a modified version of this Dior dress
I would have preferred navy shoes though.

I like the blue dress very much. It looks as though it may have been knitted to order. Notice how the flat knit turns into peat looking texture. Very unique.

Charlene's outfit looks more like a skirt and a top than a dress.

July 25, 2012 - Charlene at an event wearing a beige/tan skirt, tan top matched with a black jacket, Louis Vuitton red handbag and beige heels.

I think personally think she is tall enough to avoid those kinds of shoes. I dont understand the natural look, the boring hair do.

Love the Louis Vuitton bag; I have one very similar to it in black, but from last year's collection. It's really functional, not to mention - pretty.
The beige/tan top and skirt are not bad, but I positively hate the over-sized jacket and the unflattering shoes.

The color and style of the outfit is really uninteresting, but I guess it's fine for the event. I do wish she would have styled her hair though.

Not a very good look. The jacket does not fit her. Though, I love that bag!

The blazer is Olympic uniform I think and the beige might be uniform as well cos sometimes there is more than one outfit. I hope this is true because it's naff. The bag is good and team colour focused. The shoes are beyond comment.

Shoes are simply awful. The blazer looks to be part of the team blazers but she could have had hers altered to fit, imo. Then it would be fine.

That blazer is a bit on the bulky side, but the skirt and top are fine (even if they're in beige). The good thing about the jacket is that it adds a bit of a contrast. I really like the bag, but absolutely dislike the shoes.
