In this photo everyone else seems to be wearing black, so perhaps there was a dress code. Although it would be nice if Charlene would wear other colours such as red or peach more often as IIRC she wore a peach dress at the Grand Prix this summer which looked great on her. I'm guessing that her favourite colours are black and beige . However the outfit is nice in general.

She looks elegant, even if the outfit is black again. Well, at least she's matching with the rest of crowd...

There is a dress code - nothing to draw attention, skirt preferred but not short, no make up. It varies by church/location, but my guess is that since she was meeting the patriarch, decorum prevailed and black was a good choice. At least her jacket did not gape open (ahem )

Here are pics of Charlene and Albert at the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow. Charlene is wearing a lovely grey gown which initially appeared to be very low cut, but it's not.

This is her duty and it is expected that she does it well. Most of her outfits seem careless. We all try to dress appropriately for our jobs. I fail to understand why she does not put more effort and thought into her job.
I completely agree with that. However, the way we express our opinions -- the 'tone' / choice of words -- is important, so as not to be perceived as intended in a bitchy manner. I, too, have been disappointed many times by her fashion choices, but her appearance at the LV show was certainly not one of those cases. She looked perfectly fine, IMO. In fact, the look was very trendy/current.

On another topic, I really liked her latest appearance at the ballet in Moscow -- hairdo and all. But I can just imagine what a field day the 'royal style gods' are going to have... hehe

I hate to tell you both, she has a duty to represent her country, how she dresses is personal. As for people dressing appropriately for work, I hate to differ from the ugly, sometimes outrageous outfits I see on not only women, but men, at many different types of work. She, always, looks, lovely, some styles better than others,, but it is not a duty........many royals, have looked dumpy, dowdy and what not,, they have survived and they have done their "real" jobs, well.

The black pantsuit is fine. Nothing to get excited about, but not inappropriate. Would I have preferred her in a skirt? Yes.

The dove grey dress she wore to the ballet is interesting. I don't really like it, especially the weird sheer turtleneck thing, but in certain photos it looks better than others. It seems to look better when she is moving, not standing still. It's not a dress I would choose to wear, but it certainly seems to express her style. Her hair looks nice with a bit of volume, and I like her makeup.

I like the dove grey dress. It suits her. I absolutely LOVE her hair with the extra volume. It softens her look and is very flattering.

How she is dressed for official and high-profile events and the image that projects of Monaco -- which she represents -- is very much part of 'duty'. There have been a number of occasions where she did not do well, and there's no denying or justifying that, considering the resources available to her. On the bright side, when she gets it right, it's really a pleasure to see her. I can't help to wonder who her stylist/stylists are... He/she/they ought to be a little more consistent. Or fired, even.

I quite like the dress worn to the ballet ( though the coat/cloak she is wearing in the arrival photo doesn't do it any favours). I agree the added volume to the hair is a very nice style for Charlene. Judging by what everyone else is wearing for the previous religious engagement, wearing black seems to be appropriate and dignified, so I don't have a problem with her wearing black again. And this is why I think some of us have a different view about Charlene's fashion and style. IMO when you represent your country, your personal taste and choice has to take second place, and you should do your homework about what is the dress code. So far, on this visit, Charlene has appeared well groomed and a credit to Monaco.

I wish Charlene had worn a dress while meeting the patriarch.
The outfit at the ballet is odd but looks good on Charlene and would be great for some other event, but unsuitable for the wife of a Head of State at an event at an official visit abroad. Her hairdo isn't a success.
Charlene looked so good at the fashion show, why she can't do it at an official visit, that is a mystery for me.

I really like the grey dress she wore to the ballet. Not a big fan of the hair but I can't have everything!

I'm posting this pic of Caroline and Charlotte at a gala yesterday because coincidentally they are both wearing the colours Charlene has worn recently (grey/black), but unlike Charlene, both have fantastic accessories /jewellery that make the outfits work.

Albert and Charlene attended the Bolshoi last night.


The color is not that flattering but the gown is fine. I love her hair.

Like the hair, quite like the style of the dress but I don't think the colour does her any favours - I think it makes her look washed out. I really don't like her make up especially the lipstick - she looks like she's channeling Barbie.
