She looks fine, but I will say that her wardrobe is very monochromatic. Beige, gray, white, black. I'd love to see some real color. A deep purple with a pair of white pants. A green with off white or beige. And yes, some jewels, any jewels would be really nice. We all know there are some available.

Great, just great. She puts all the color into one outfit that makes her look like a Popsicle. I will say before someone else mentions it, the shiny-ness of the fabric is probably much more due to the flashes than to the fabric.

Some of us asked for colour so I guess we shouldn't complain, but even if you make allowances for flash photography causing the shiny effect, it is still too much of a block of colour. Although she can look good in trouser suits, I don't think this is a good look .

There is too much of one color going on and too much of red is very hard to pull off. Even though she tried with color, this is a miss. The pants and jacket are just too shiny.

Yikes! Too much red. I was sure I would be defending her choice, because I love red, and particularly that shade of red, but it's too much, and overwhelming. I think a better choice would have been black pants and top and the red jacket as a feature.

BTW, are they Double Delight roses? That is one of my favourites, having a powerful, sweet fragrance. ETA No, it looks very like Double Delight, but is Jubile du Prince de Monarco, a 2000 introduction we know as Cherry Parfait, which is very hardy but only slightly fragrant, and therefore, IMO, nowhere near as desirable as Double Delight.

Oh my! Be careful of what you ask for right?!?!? This is colorful, just not in a good way. Although, I will say that this shade of red looks really good on Charlene, just not the right choice of fabric. Her makeup looks nice as well.

Whoa! Too much of a good thing! Great color on Charlene but she tends to overdo (or underdo, depending!). lol

->that´s certainly true, unfortunately shiny/glittery materials often look less attractive if they are photographed with flash:-( I am sure it looked better in real life.

I say "Hurrah" for chosing such a brilliant,dazzling colour - Charléne looks fantastic in red
The blouse looks lovely, I like the detailing around her neck,it looks very flattering and elegant.
She has the right body type to pull off such a daring look, I only have a little complaint because to me the blazer looks a little bit large, but we finally got to see some colour which is great!
Obviously Charléne likes monochrome and less ornaments and jewels at the moment. To me she looked very pretty and I am happy that she chose such a fine material and colour.

I like this color on her but the outfit itself isn't good. I love the Dior clutch.

Yikes, that's a bad outfit. It's way too shiny and way too much red. She should have ditched the jacket and shirt and just paired the pants with a white or back top. It would have worked much better than this red on red outfit.

Not liking the beige outfit. The color is so blah and boring. Her clutch is cute though.

Just to clarify-why/how is this outfit high fashion?

The red outfit reminds me of those polyester suits that were so fashionable in the 70s. She looks nice in this particular shade, but it's a bit too much of one color in this instance.

The first thing that came to mind when I opened the link and saw the photo was Liberace lives!

Nice to see Charlene in some color, but that outfit is a complete miss.

OMG.

Either Charlene is walking around looking like a breathing bowl of oatmeal . . .
OR . . .

She's walking around looking like an ambulatory tomato.

Oh.

BROTHER.
