I love the pink dress. It looks absolutely delightful on Charlene. Her hair style suits her.

Looks like I'm in minority, but while I like the colour and style of the dress, I hate how it sits on Charlene.
It doesn't compliment her figure, at least in my opinion.

As far as style is concerned, in-between Armani and Akris, between rather overblown, rather too casual and rather refined, I don't see a true Charlene signature style yet.

The remark about Akris clothes being 'mediocre' is IMHO correct; they constantly try to achieve an haute couture look but have neither the originality nor the high quality and craftsmanship that should go with it; for me, there is always something missing, and I find that the designs often try to achieve an elegant simplicity which ends up as sheer blandness.
Steering away from Akris would be a great move for Princess Charlene's style, I'd say.

She does look stunning. She has chosen a very minimalist style. Very little jewelry, very sleek looks. Very elegant. Her hair looks great.

Princess Charlene at the Louis Vuitton boutique at the Place Vendome in Paris on July 3, 2012.

- Complete look
- Close up of the dress
- Hair, jewellery and makeup

Love the dress. It's quite bold and although normally I'm no fan of glitter and sequins, Charlene managed to balance sparkle and elegance.

It's very 1980s ballerina. Was she going clubbing afterwards?

You'd wear that clubbing? Far too posh.

An unflattering dress in a design that has too much going on - the sequins in two colors glistening like glue, the rows of ruffles looking stiff and oddly quilted, yet another transparent ruffle at the bottom: Less would have been more.
It’s an uneasy mix of flapper and yesteryear’s disco queen... the sequinned rectangle in the front apparently does not go all around the upper body and makes Charlene’s torso look massive.
IMHO anything but elegant, no hair style today either - a clear miss for me, and disappointing after yesterday’s beautiful appearance.

That shiny monstrosity is over the top. The shade of blue would have been lovely on Charlene if it was shimmering and hurting my eyes. No, this one is a miss for me. It's something one may possibly wear to a nightclub or better yet, an 80s disco.

Well, Charlene pushed the envelope a bit. I give her credit for trying, and I actually like the sequined portion of the dress but not those ruffles. It would have been a better look if the dress was all sequined. The top portion around the neck and shoulders looks incomplete without the sequins; I don't like that black part and there looks to be an odd blue stripe going down the side. Somewhat a mishmash of fabric and style here. But the deep blue is an absolutely gorgeous color on her and those diamond drop earrings are to die for.

I'm in the miss camp too. Apart from the colour (royal blue/black) I like nothing about the style of the dress, hate the platform shoes and the overall "heroin chic" style & make-up. Doesnt look good on Charlene, at all.
