I think this may be one of Charlene's worst looks ever (for me). The dress is so boring and featureless, the flat, unstyled hair, the lack of jewellery... Seriously, I can't find any positive aspect about this outfit.

I'd have probably liked the dress if it were black-only, or black-navy blue, but he black-burgundy combination doesn't work for me.
And overall, too much black on this visit - and that's coming from someone who loved black cloths wise.

In my opinion the problem with this look is not so much the dress (though I also don't like it!) the problem lies with the hair. I mean honestly she looks as if she hasn't washed her hair for several days. And the lack of earrings is a pity. Really some nice pearl studs would have done sufficiently but as it is the whole look is really depressing. Not to mention her serious facial expression ....

ITA with hair and lack of jewels.
However, maintaining a neutral or pleasant expression over a long period is something she needs to work on. I had a friend who was often photographed at lectures/events, while she was paying attention to a speaker, and to not look stern or bored, she would put her tongue at the back of her front teeth to relax her jaw and have a pleasant look.
Constant smiling is too hard and can look fake, she needs strategies.

yes it is amazing, I wonder if they are informed about what will be worn. The look is a bit like the old communists ( I mean that kindly)

Why is everyone wearing black, was there a funeral we missed? While I understand black is always in fashion and is classic and so on, there is that moment when there is too much black and I think it hit this moment for me .

Princess Charlene on the second day in Poland, October 18, during an official sight seeing tour in Krakow, wearing a comfortable look with pants and a long cardigan - not too casual and not too elegant, right for the occasion:

Is that the same coat she wore in Lithuania? I really like this coat.

It's a very nice, slightly casual but still elegant combination.
The bright coral lips are a nice addition, but I'd have preferred a bit more colour or accessories. Would it kill Charlene to don a brooch/necklace/earrings - anything?

Yes, its the same coat.
I would've liked this look if she added a brooch or something for it not to look too plain.

Maybe . It looks to me like (and I am sure it's not the case, just my perception) she is trying too hard to show how much against the jewelry she is.
I am not talking about looking like a Christmas tree, but some small earrings and maybe even a brooch would look so nice with the coat and the turtleneck here. Oh well.

I don't wear much jewelry because of a metal allergy, maybe it's something like that? (however, there are alternatives in stone, textile etc, so there would still be options for some decoration :-) )

Maybe it is. But, as you said, there are alternatives. And, again, as you said, you don't wear much. Charlene wears nothing most of the times. That's a difference.

Brooch or even a necklace, worn on the coat or on the turtleneck wouldn't give her alergies. It would not touch a skin.

Really like the coat and trousers look. The only suggestion I'd make is that the turtle neck underneath be a brighter color.

Does anyone know if Charlene takes a stylist, dresser or hairstylist with her when she goes on official visits abroad? Much as I like her shorter hairstyle and some of her pared down outfits, she too frequently lacks the finish you'd expect of a First Lady representing her country.

Minimalistic yet elegant. I like the coat a lot!

Princess Charlene attended the 30th Princess Grace Award Gala tonight, on October 22, 2012.

She wore an interesting white gown with silver/gold detailing and lovely earrings:
- Complete look - Close up - Makeup and Jewellery

Earlier in the day, Charlene (along with Albert) were sighted leaving the Crown Luncheon held at Daniel Restaurant.
For the luncheon, Charlene wore an elegant red dress with a burgundy red bolero jacket, red clutch and nude heels.
- Complete look 1 - Complete look 2 - Complete look 3

I don't care for the evening gown, but I really like her make-up and earrings. I think the red dress looks very nice, especially in terms of color.

Day-time look in New York: I'm loving the colour on her (and the dress/bolero jacket), but the lack of eye make-up makes her look like a ghost. Erm...

Evening gown: Now that's what a modern-day princess looks like! Beautiful gown, hair, make-up. Those earrings are TDF! Just enough glam and chic to make the right kind of statement. They both look fab and happy.

Daytime look - nice dress, like the colour very much. Don't like the jacket thingy at all, looks very tacky. Her face is very pale, almost ghost-like.
But, she is smiling, and that's ahuge plus.

Nighttime look - pretty gown and, WOW, jewelry! Beautiful earrings and bracelet. The only minus for me is lack of bra what shows esp in the close-up photo.
