The outfit is rather 'blah'. She needs more color.

I have always liked her in pastel shades - I think she has chosen wisely for this event.

I think Charlene has a lot of "French Chic." Being an individual, she has, of course, adapted the timeless look to suit her tastes.

As for not liking her "1960s" hair. Other women in her family wear their hair in that awful 60s style of long and straight, so she has just chosen the style from that era that suits her.

I don't understand all the negativity, but I do understand that some need to put her down to make themselves feel better.

Go! Charlene.

Or they simply don't like the clothes or the hair without the whole psychology impact there you mentioned. What I don't understand is why is it so hard for Charlene fans and supporters to understand someone may simply not like what she wears or how her hair looks without putting whole "some need to put her down to make themselves feel better." there.

How stating "I don't like what she wears" or "I don't think she has the French touch / chic" is putting her down is what I would like to understand. It is, after all, the fashion thread on Charlene, so her fashion is what we discuss here. Some will like it always, some it like it sometimes and some will never like it. But you (and some others) should respect opinions of others and understand that opinions vary and not all here will be as fond of Charlene as you are.

I don't think of Charlene's style as French.
For me French style is Inès de la Fressange or Caroline and Charlotte.

Charlene's style is clean and simple. Less is more. Her style reminds me of Carolyn Bessette Kennedy who wore a lot of Calvin Klein and Yamamoto.

Anyway, I love seeing her at the Armani show and hope she'll wear his clothes again in the future.

I think she's wearing Roger Vivier shoes.

I agree with you picking Ines de la Fressange as an example of french chic and that charlene resembles the late Carolyn Bessette Kennedy.

I love everything about this look, Armani is perfect for Charlene, she should make them her first designer.

Charlene looks simple and minimalistic but classy at the same time.

But would I have chosen this outfit for a fashoin show? Probably not.

Albert and Charlene attended yesterday at a charity gala organised by the Monaco Wales Association in Monte Carlo.

Charlene looks lovely. The dress is otherwise very beautiful, but I don't like the top part of it.

I like the dress

is it a dress of Armani? because it is the style of this designer, naked shoulders and the side of the dress.

Charlene looks beautiful in this dress. A nice simple dress that suits her figure really well.

A pair of pretty earrings would've been nice.

I don't like the dress nor the color. I also don't think Charlene pulls it off. She looks better in color, this is too boring for her IMO.

I wish she'd wear some color...I guess her style is just more monochrome but she would look better with some color. She tends to 'wash out' with all the pale clothing.

She looks lovely at the Welsh gala - she sticks to a style that she likes and works for her.

Oh yeah, I'm definitely with you on this one. I am developing a bad case of Bag Envy!

I looked at the strapless gown and thought, oh no that's just not "Royal Princessy" enough. Then I looked again and remembered the photo's of the late Princess Margaret and her strapless gowns. They were elegant, they were her, and they didn't make her less of a Princess.

Charlene's style is minimalist and she knows what suits her, and with her regal carriage and enviable even tan, strapless looks amazing on her. She wears the gown, the gown does not wear her. She looks totally at ease in her own skin and in her own style.

She did. Really lovely diamond studs. With her hair style she really can pull off the "less is more" dictum.

Got it in one. This is one classy lady and with every official appearance she seems more and more relaxed and confident. A perfect consort in fact.

She looks lovely. I don't think she, personally, cares for jewelry. And that is her preogative.
