I loved the gown...very dance hall girl-ish. The cropped mac would have been happier at home, but the dress was fab. I think Kate would look great in the dress!

Without the biker jacket the gown was actually quite nice.

The dress could be really beautiful-with the proper hair and makeup. But her makeup looked wan, her hair was a non-starter...

And the jacket? All I can say is 'huh?'

I am unable to imagine what conversation one would have wth oneself prior to deciding to wear the leather jacket over that evening gown to the Rose Ball the gown itself was fine nothing amazing IMO but the jacket OMG.
I did however like her makeup and at least she wore some lovely earrings.

I'd say you can't go wrong with the red dress which is kind of too basic and boring IMO, but Charlene's version is very risky, and I love that she took such a risk and that she followed the theme, some reader in my blog told me at the man who started SBM was called Francois Blanc, that's why Charlene's gown was in blanc (white).

Why honour a man who started SBM? That is like honoring Mr. Hilton for starting the Hilton hotels. She probably wore white for the same reason as many on the red carpet. It is in.

At first I thought Charlene looked terrible, but compared to some of the others, I guess she wasn't so bad.
Did Charlotte steal that dress from Bjork and dye it pink? It looked just like Bjork's swan dress!
And Caroline looked like her dress was made from upholstery.

What's wrong with Charlene's sense of style? She doesn't seem to have one at all. Her outfits are either boring or very unattractive. She seldom gets it right (or at least close to right).

I have no idea who advised her to wear what she wore, but she should definitely never listen to that person again.
The biker chick jacket / ball gown / Roman gladiator combination was the worse I've seen on her so far.
For someone who is claimed to be a minimalist and not fond of jewelry she put on quite a bit of it (even if it's fake and part of the dress). Also, I am still waiting on the glamour she said she was bring back to Monaco. If that's her attempt, I would suggest she stops...

A horrible look. It could have been quite a nice dress, but she managed to destroy it with all the wrong additions.

Hair and make-up completely to not match the dress, maybe the make-up matches the biker jacket, but the hair is off either way.

I think you're being a bit harsh. Her sense of style is avant grade, not traditional. I think she can and should make better choices, too, but we have to recognize that we're dealing with different rules with Charlene.

I rather like Charlene's look sans the jacket. But with the jacket... I'm just not a fan of anything leathery worn with evening gowns.
Then again, I am glad she is finding her own style and wears what she likes - whatever anyone else (me included) thinks of it.

I don't think I was being harsh. I just think Charlene seems not to have a sense of style. Boring or unattractive outfits are not avant garde. And she gets it right when she wears suits, usually, which are very traditional clothes.

Different rules? She is a Princess, after all, the rules are similar when it comes to fashion to all Princesses, and Charlene has made so many mistakes it made me to believe she has no sense of style herself and really needs a help of stylist. And from what I read, I am not the only one to think so.

Charlene visited a hospital in Nice, France, today, March 27, wearing a simple, elegant suit in black:

For a charity concert yesterday evening she also wore a combination in black:

I think she has a pretty definite sense of what she likes-"power" pieces for evening, more modern silhouettes for day; even her red lip is very on-trend right now, which tells me that she is interested to be in the moment fashion-wise.

I rarely like what she wears, but it's because her tastes and mine are very different. That's what I meant about different rules- I'm not sure PC is ever going to dress like the other royal ladies.

There are no rules for dressing in the royalties. The rules are made by royalty watchers as us. As we are ordinary watchers, we find fabulous the dresses that our favorites princesses are wearing and horrible the dresses that the princesses we hate

Many here do not understand that this ball had the theme 'belle époque and pop' and do not recall that princess Grace wore one year a dress of SHeherazade with a mask.



But the stylists or the fashion sites find that Charlene was elegant and fabulous. Huffington post found fabulous the gown of Charlene;

I hope she will never change her way to dress nor she will never listen conventionel people like many here because she would become a very boring person.

Princess Charlene is a person without scandal, she was not divorced or had no child out of a wedding like some person in the family of Grimaldi. She had no advices to receive of nobody apart The prince Albert and she has the dignity of a princess

I think we will have to agree to disagree, and I am fine with that. We all have our own views and opinions on fashion. I don't see too much of a sense of a style in Charlene, but it also may be because my taste is different. Red lips were almost always pretty popular, I think

Thank you for explaining the different rules sentence, now I get it, and it makes sense.

I wouldn't agree with you. I think there are some types of rules and protocols as to how a Royal Princess should dress, what to wear and what to avoid.

Why do you always bring the hate argument? Why can't you understand someone can simply not like what Charlene wears without any personal feeling toward her? Are you saying when you don't like other Princess' dress is it because you hate her? That's weird. I fully understood the theme of the Ball, yet, I still do not like what Charlene decided to wear. And I am allowed to, without you telling me that the reason I don't like it is because I hate her.

Also, why would I care what Huffington Post or other sites or other stylists have to say about what they think about Charlene's dress? I posted my opinion, my own, based on what I like and think, not on what fashion sites tell me to like or not like. I would like to believe I think on my own, not basing my opinions on fashion sites opinions.

I would also like to know what your second to last sentence have to do with Charlene's fashion... Divorce or a child out of wedding is not a scandal, you know?

Lastly, you don't know if she receives advices from Prince Albert only, or if she has a stylist or a lady to advise her.

You act as if you knew Charlene personally and as if defending her at all costs was your life mission. Lighten up, girl. Life is not all and only about Charlene's fashion or her actions; for all I know she caress not for mine or yours opinion, we are all just having fun here.

It would be nice if she started wearing earrings and adding some color to her wardrobe. Other that that, I think she's pretty stylish in a Grace is Monaco way.

She has a take it or leave it attitude; somethinmg unequivocal about her approach . I loved when she was attired by Armani.Princess Charlene is Las Vegas meets Hollywood.This lady cannot be prompted into submission.Hope to see something better received in August at the Ball.There is not a hint of the traditional Grace in her.For Belle Epoque meets pop this looks fine
