You read my mind, I thought pearls too.
However, this dress, the fit, and color are really perfection!
Not to mention the shoes!

I love it when Charlene steps out looking as did! The navy was a great choice - very simple and elegant and classic and beautiful, yet the texture made it fun. And the fit was flattering. I think she accessorized it well, but a little more bling would not have hurt .

As far as I know we have mostly commoners in roles of royalty - or as royal spouses - these days. There is Mette-Marit of Norway, Mary of Denmark, Daniel of Sweden, Maxima of Holland and that is just a few.

Most of the royalty we are appreciating on this site were 'ordinary [...] who married well.' Most of these ordinary people were not 'born to be a fashion plate,' either. But being a fashion plate is not genetically determined - anybody can rise to the challenge if given the time and where-withal to focus in that way.

In Charlene's case, she is demonstrating a very classy style - you may not like her style, that's fair, but for some her minimalist style is 'very Chanel' - "Dress shabbily, they notice the dress. Dress impeccably, they notice the woman." The way Charlene is dressing we are most assuredly noticing the woman.

I think the dress is a little boring, but her make-up is lovely.

She looks good, actual color which is strong like this suits her way better than pale colors.

I also liked yesterday's look, very elegant and lovely!

Today, June 16, Charlene has chosen a sportive look, she visited the Monaco Rugby Union Club and wore wide black
pants and a black t-shirt, not best looking but comfortable for a round and easy to change (see the club's t-shirt),
so it's been perfect for the occasion:

I must admit that her look is quite disappointing and recycling this dress again after such a short period since it was first worn and wearing a very similar 2 dresses (black skirt with a different top part & the sky blue).

I was really hoping she wouldn't wear this black dress again. It is one of my least favorite. The shorter hemline in the front makes the dress look so strange. It's like they ran out of material before they were able to finish the dress.

I don't mind the graduated hemline (how apropos given the occasion) as much as I do the starkness of the outfit. Again, some jewel or a colorful accessory might have brighten up a dark look for a happy occasion.

Charlene is a handsome woman - a beautiful woman. She is always lovely. She has a model-like presentation - she has the body for it. I am one person particularly fond of her minimalist style - yet in this case, especially in that 1st picture, it feels way too 'casual' for the occasion. In the 3rd picture it seems to be okay - but not otherwise.

I appreciate that she may be trying to dress 'quick and easy' but she needs to start thinking this through a bit. I have to agree in this instance that some jewelry would have sophisticated the look, a diamond choker, anything - and if not jewelry, an elegant scarf.

Yet, even having said all the above, this is so 'her'. It's starting to be hard to vision her any other way. Men, after all, have it this simple - why not the woman?

This is a very nice dress that fits well on her, she seems to be taking a liking to this style of skirt and I like to see her run with it. The hair is dissapointing, but I can look passed it.

I agree its a strange outfit for the event, seems she missed the dress code. I would expect a nice coat with dress or a short dress or even nice pants with a dressy top. I thought the heels were the best part of the look

The article says it is an Akris dress. Thanks so much for posting the images and articles. I love the dress, the graduated hemline, and the way it focuses attention on the fabulous sandals!
Something was needed in the upper area, jewelry, scarf or something.
It seems that it is a very dressy look for a graduation, but we don't know what time it was held or the circumstances, other than it was held at the Palace.
