The red bag outfit is awful too awful actually nothing else can be said about it .... things are getting out of hand with Charlene's outfits of late I am bewildered.

I dont mind the heels, have seen much worse on Charlene. The hair would look nice in case it was styled, but not like this.

Maybe she likes being taller than Albert

Princess Charlene at the reception at BP ahead of the Olympic Games. The proportion is off on this pantsuit.

Maybe a close up will change my opinion, but this outfit leaves me cold.
Minimalistic style is one thing, but this is just bland and boring.

The suit looks like pajamas with the jacket IMO. T

From what I can see, I'm not liking this outfit. There's something off about it - it looks likes the jacket is too big or something.

I don't like this outfit I love the colour on her but I think a dress or skirt would have been more appropiate IMO

Why? Slacks are just as appropriate and she looks very nice and understated. Smart.

Top-to-toe lace including lace pants is a look very rarely seen on any woman in public...
...and seeing this outfit, it's quite perfectly clear why.

A good thing that she somehow managed to change on her way to the opening ceremony.

I like the top, it has interesting details. The jacket is also very elegant but I dislike the pants.

Is this a jumpsuit?
The color doesn't do her justice nor does the size too big jacket. Her flat hair style doesn't look good, some volume and pulled back is much nicer on her.

I also find it very elegant, wish we had a better picture. Think the color is fine.

Can't believe that I'm saying this, but I actually like the outfit. The color is understated but the texture of the top and pants make it very interesting. She looks elegant and cutting edge at the same time. Well done Charlene.

Here's a better photo of the outfit. After seeing a close-up, I still don't like it. I think the color washes her out and I dislike the pants - it looks like she's wearing a lace tablecloth.

I'm really not liking this look. Lace pants are a bit much. The color is the usual that we see on Charlene, and it's a bit on the boring side. Her hair looks really lovely.

I didn't even recognize her in the picture. I'm not liking the look at all.

I thought she looked very sleek and elegant at BP. Job well done.
