Princess Charlene at the Red Cross Ball in Monaco on August 3, 2012 wearing a dress in white and gold. Not bad,
only the reflections of the material are a bit strange looking.

I love the idea of the dress: the combination of gold and white is a classic and usually works.
However, the dress itself looks badly executed - although it's probably an expensive designer piece.

The top is too glittery, and the back doesn't look good.
Back view
I don't like these shoes.

Am usually not a fan, but she looks pretty, makeup in the closeup is amazingly well done, her shoes give the skirt the look of a classical statue.

I think it is a pretty good look. She also appears to have become more relaxed over the past year about life in the spotlight. Jewel lovers will no doubt be disappointed but she is wearing a bracelet so there is some consolation for them too. Albert certainly appears quite pleased with his Princess.

I quite like the dress in general. The cut of the top could be a bit better, and I don't like the back, but the overall affect is quite nice.

From the front the shape of the dress is ok, but the gold just looks a bit tacky. The back of the dress is truly ugly and the Brigitte Nielsen hair doesn't help either.

Yes I am disappointed although I can see with all the sequins a lot of jewellery wouldn't work. I love the bracelet but it seems a rather odd choice with this look.

Is that what is happening there? I was wondering. Almost thought it was her make-up.

I like this. She looks great - and yes, very relaxed. Albert looks pretty happy, too. I always notice that people around the couple - especially when Charlene is present (maybe other times, too, but I notice it when she is center stage) - are smiling. Good sign.

I'm sad they are not still at the Olympics.

This look could have been one of her better styles IMHO, but the execution of the dress doesn't seem to be in high quality, and the back view is quite a disaster.
With sequins, their placement is everything. If they're just piled solidly on top of each other as they are in the top here, the wearer looks either - depending on the lighting - glistening wet like a fish fresh out of water or as if wearing a breastplate.
The ugly sequins' reflections on the face make this outfit actually unsuited to be photographed, and while I like the silhouette of the skirt, I believe it's again not very nicely made.
Make up quite nice, and a Brigitte Nielsen hairdo is unfortunately the only thing she can do with such short hair with bangs for a 'dressy' style...
The fact that she doesn't even choose to wear any of the grand jewelry she was given at the wedding for the occasion on the Monte Carlo social calendar which would be the most appropriate to do so is disappointing indeed.

I thought she looked good minus the back view. The color combo of white and gold works well. I like the cut of the dress but it could've been a bit more flattering, it somehow looked a bit shapeless, could be the style. The sequins on the top is fine but only if they didn't reflect color when light hit it.

Her shoes we simple, plain and IMO they looked nice with the dress.

The dress was poorly executed....she looks nice otherwise.

Really not liking the dress, especially the top and the back view. It's too much.

She's wearing a ballgown. By nature they are glitzy. I love the sequins, the glitz is amazing. I admire that she is confident enough to wear it, as I would not be. As for her hair, it suits her and I like that she hasn't felt she needed to have long hair to be femme.

My thoughts exactly. The back of the dress looks really badly tailored.

Don't like it. The top is weird looking and the back of the dress is quite ugly. I don't like sequins, at all. Ever. For me they are cheap looking, no matter what they are on. Skirt part isn't bad, but looks a bit shapeless, like it wasn't tailored properly. All in all not her best look.

I like it. She looks good in the dress.

A little bummed they left London though. They looked like they were having fun.

I don't think they had a choice about leaving London. I like the front of the gown, but not the back, either. Shows you that designers who get a lot of money are often worth nothing.
