Yes, and it's such a perfect color for a Mediterranean country. She also looks much more relaxed in this photo as well compared to the engagement one.

Charlene looks like she's wearing a bed sheet in that photo. It emphasises her broadness.

I love the official portrait! The dress is gorgeous (color and style-wise).

That is a pretty dress, I wish I could see more of it and from different angles. Pretty color as well.

I love the color on the official portrait, but I think the waist embellishment makes her figure look a bit strange- almost pear shaped.

Love the dress, too, and the color - so delicate - Charlene's style, simple, clean lines, beautiful fabric and always elegant as a result. The whole picture is well-crafted with the background and flowers and all, too. Albert is looking pretty sharp.
I know a lot of people really want and love to see Charlene in deep jewel colours like the rust coloured dress but I think she looks fabulous in the more etherial deep pastels. Her Engagement and wedding ensembles come to mind. In this latest photo she looks wonderul, she glows and as Tyger said. she looks Majestically at ease. What more could a woman want!

I love the burgundy dress on Charlene. And she looks great in her anniversary photo.
Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

she's dazzling , hair and makeup are amazing , i think we can assume that she's Dior head to toe , also she's not wearing her wedding ring , but wearing another ring perhaps by Dior too, anyway I'm glad she attended. it was a deep wish , and the collection is amazing and simple , I guess Charlene would really like it , and will choose some pieces of it(hopefully)

Close up
I suspect she's had a trim (just to even things out) but it's been left at a perfect length. I wonder if she is going to leave it here - I think it's perfect. I agree about the make-up - beautiful. The earrings are an interesting choice of color given the color of the outfit - probably chosen to go with her eyes.

This might be one of her best looks since the wedding - the dress soft, sleek and elegant, the overall appearance very sophisticated, a sophistication which all her (too) many Akris dresses try to achieve without succeeding, IMHO.
Whoever did her make up and hair in Paris knew exactly what s/he was doing - in the past, this has frequently not been the case.

I think this length of hair is nice on her, any shorter and it doesn't really work. I actually love her dress - cute and color. Very pretty and quite elegant. I usually don't like this color on her because it washed her out but it works this time on her because of the make up which is quite nice. One of the really nice overall looks.

Wow she really looks stunning in these pictures. Am I the only one who sees a ressemblance to Princess Grace here ?

A beautiful fit and the ruffle isn't overdone. I really like her in form-fitting clothing; she has a stunning shape. A bracelet, dangling earrings or necklace would have looked lovely, but her hair and makeup are impeccable.
