I'm usually very very careful critisizing Charlene for she is new at this, et c, et c, but I have to say; What the hell was she thinking???

I really like, and would wear, the twinset. The skirt is a really bad choice. As for no makeup and less-than-perfect hair, I admire the confidence she has to go that way.

Was the couple able to actually interact with kids? If so, then yes, comfort is the way to go (though I still dislike the ensemble).

Yes, there's something to be said for dressing how you like, no matter what others say. Definitely brownie points for Charlene.

The whole outfit is a disaster to say the least. The colour is awful, especially for a public person. It is the colour of diarrea. The cardigan is too long, wear a belt if you must wear it. The skirt would be fine on another planet.

Why does she wear those long skirts/trousers all the time, is she hiding a leg condition of some sort? Or perhaps doesn't want to go through the ordeal of vaxing all the time?

and what is the deal with Albert's neoncolour sneakers!

That's true.
But the outfit looks horrible.

I posted in the wrong thread (paraolympics) that I think Charlene has replaced Mabel as the Worst Dressed Princess.

Charlene looks quite comfortable but she looks unkept and there is no shape to her outfit, she should've worn something better .

.

For an UEFA Super Cup match in Monaco today, August 31, Charlene has recycled a dress that has been criticised before The transparency problem remains but as to the light conditions it looks a bit better and the rest of the styling - hair and make-up - fits better this way. Still a skin-coloured underdress or one in the same shade of red would have been recommendable

After the previous horror, this red dress is a breath of fresh air.
I really like the look and all the minor flaws are forgiven thanks to the gorgeous red lipstick.
Charlene's makeup and hairstyle look way better and more sophisticated than they did back in July.

The only thing that's nice about the dress is the color. It actually doesn't wash her out.

The red dress is simply stunning! She looked beautiful.

But yeah, what was with that frumpy, wrinkled beige outfit? She's a princess of a very wealthy country - she should look the part at all times.

What a difference a day makes. Most of you are too young to remember this song.

I actually really like the dress, the color of it and style, make up and the hair. It all works very well but not for the event, a bit too dressy.

She looks way better in it this time then when she first wore it. I hardy remembered the dress.
