I love the dress, especially the length and the flats! She is tall and slim enough with long legs that she can pull it off. It looks new and mod, imo

It's not completely terrible, but it's not a 'wow' either. I'm glad to see that at least it's not beige.

I think we have to accept that Charlene has her own ideas and is going to wear what she wants to wear. Her taste is for simple, fairly casual, styles and minimal bling. And looking at how Albert dresses I think he probably doesn't care too much about dressing up either and I suspect he thinks his wife is beautiful as she is. And I agree.

What's with her and the flats lately? I don't remember her wearing flats before, at least not at official events.

She might just feel more comfortable in flats. She has been seen in flats in the past at official events like 50th anniversary of the Stade Nautique Rainier, visit to Corsica, port of Grand Prix race, exhibition of their wedding outfits and many more official and unofficial events.

Princess Charlene at the annual picnic at the Parc Princesse Antoinette in Monaco today, September 13, wearing the traditional Monégasque costume for the first time ever (in a slightly different form) and looking very lovely in it:

Charlene looked lovely in the traditional Monégasque costume. I particularly liked the third photo of her and Albert together, a loving look.

She's worn a wide variety of outfits to this event over the last few years. She looks very cute. Both Grace and Caroline have worn national dress ( not sure about Stephanie) so she's very much following a tradition.

I've looked at other pics, but I can't find one with a neckline and shoulders as low as this version. It looks too revealing.

What does it reveal? Her lovely neck and shoulders?

Yep. That's all it that's revealed. There's no hint of cleavage. I think it's a bit of an optical illusion; because she has such broad shoulders there is a lot of skin exposed and it seems she's revealing more than she really is.

I think she looks lovely in that outfit, and I like the way she's wearing her hair, too. She and Albert look very happy together.

My sentiments exactly. She looks LOVELY, and I'm really loving that she put her own spin on the traditional costume. Why some people always have to be so critical and look for something negative is beyond me...

Oh yes, very shocking. In fact I was so shocked I ran to make sure the legs on the piano and other pieces of furniture were covered up and all the doilies in place on the arms and backs of chairs.

Charlene gave a nice spin to a traditional costume and I like the soft waves of her hairstyle. She looked lovely.

She looked lovely in the outfit and it was a very nice change. I also quite liked her hair, it looks so much better than it pulled back tightly.

I agree. If you wear a traditional/national costume, it should be worn as it is and not make odd versions of it.

how can you say that the costume must be worn like this way or not. You know nothing about the uses of the monaco and the south of france apart some photos of princess grace ?
There are many versions of this traditional costume . The most important paers of the costume are the dress rose and night stries at the low part, the black bodice and the slleeves the other parts are accessory. You can wear it with a crossed shawl ot with a bodice in one part or in two parts. one with a low decolletté or one in a part. There are also different versions for the men.

No matter, I think that here some people are not please to watch that charlene wore the traditional costume and they critic without knowing nothing. it it were Caroline and Tatiana, some here would have writte that they are wonderfull but it is Charlene than there will be always critics.
