The black and both of them here are lovely and a far better choice than the ball which I am still trying hard to get over..

I agree with you. The black outfit is very elegant.

This suit is very pretty, although for me a little boring. But much better than some things that I've seen. A colored or textured shirt under the suit would have been nice. Or even a really cool necklace. Her make up looked better, no so over done.

I agree. Some jewelry would be nice. But, she is lovely.

A scarf, necklace or brooch would have broken up that unrelieved black.

She looks quite elegant though I agree with some of the others, some kind of jewel, scarf etc would have been nice. But Charlene has made monochrome her signature style as Princess.

I agree with the monochrome style, it's a great observation although I prefer to see her in pastel colors.

Yep, this is the Charlene I like. I just prefer to forget last week's ensemble.

I think monochrome in pastels or even strong colors would be lovely on her. When it's monochrome black, it definitely could use a shot of a color accessory, or at least jewelry!

I think you will just have to accept that Charlene is not a big fan of gilding the lily with lots of bling, which judgng from my nieces of a similar age is not unusual. When I asked them why they never wear any of the jewels they inherited or received as gifts they told me that such jewels were more for older ladies and that they rarely wear more than stud earings or a gold chain. Pearls were definitely considered "old lady" but for a really grand event they would wear small diamond earings at most.

Her suit is nice but it would be better with a necklace.

We saw she had beautiful jewels, and it is a shame she does not wear them.

I hope she will wear the 'ocean' one day, princess Grace wore tiares during some ceremonies since her death her daughters did not wear anymore tiares. It is a shame.

Who's wardrobe did she borrow this from?

It is way too big for her. And black? Why black? There is a whole palette of colour waiting for her - and she chooses black.

Or maybe that was all that was in the wardrobe of whoever she borrowed this from!

Depending on how close to the ring they were sitting and how bloody the fight was, black wouldnt show the blood.

good thought but it is awful. I wore something similar in c1979. But if I was 32 now, I wouldn't

That coat is too big, too long and way too dowdy! That reminds me of my maxi coat I wore back in the '70s, but at least mine was fitted and had a cute faux-fur collar.

I share your thoughts here. This is one horrid look. I think the coat would have been lovely if it were fitted properly, and a bit shorter. A scarf of a nice, bright color would have been a great addition too. Like you, I'm wondering where exactly she obtained this particular 'creation'.

Again, completely agree (though I've never seen a maxi coat, but I'm sure yours looked lovely on you [it certainly sounds like it was a really nice piece]).
