Why do women have such a problem with a woman having athletic shoulders? Men certainly don't have a problem with them, and they are beautiful shoulders .

We are who we are. That's it. She is a swimmer. Has broad shoulders. She is, also, stunning. The gown is nice, and she has earrings on. Should satisfy many. Do I love the gown, it is fine, she has worn better which was criticized. She looked lovely.

Haha, linebacker.
I do like broad shoulders in women that are slim and tall. They can look very elegant. She was a swimmer, after all.

She looks very elegant. I wish that I had her shoulders and height. She looks nothing like a linebacker.

The color of the dress is pretty, but I don't like the style of the dress at all. Her earrings are lovely though. Overall she looks nice, but this look doesn't blow me away...she has looked better.

You took the words right out of my mouth!

Also, she does have broad, muscular shoulders, but I (and, I suspect, more than a few people) would give my eye teeth to have the figure she has- plus, it doesn't look out of proportion because it's a column dress.

Geez!

Sorry, but IMO that is a ridiculous statement. She is graceful, she is athletic, and she is all woman.

I really don't care what you think of my opinion, I think her shoulders are unattractive and her worst physical trait. There are women who have broad shoulders and women who have overly large shoulders like Charlene. I'm not going to stop having an opinion or stating it just because it irritates you. I find it ironic in a thread on a board that is about nothing but how someone (mostly women) physically looks yet with one non praising comment certain people cry foul.
Some people think Kate's hair is too long and that she is too skinny, some hate the way Victoria wears her hair, I've even heard some talk negatively about Mette Marit's tanning habits and what tanning has done to Stefanie and Caroline; me? I think Charlene has linebacker shoulders.

Not really. Swimmers shoulders maybe.

She had those shoulders before she was a swimmer. They are what made her a good swimmer. She is beautiful and well dressed.

Absolutely agree -I love the color of this one, though.

But the difference is you can change your hair, you can change your weight and you can change your tanning habits.

How is Charlene supposed to change her bone structure? Yes when you train you increase muscle definition but everyone can still feel the bone at the widest part of their shoulders.

You regularly complain about Charlene which is your right to do so and I can understand complaining about hair, clothes, makeup, jewellery etc but I don't understand the constant criticism of her bones!

The style and fabric is a bit outdated to me but I must say the color and style works very well on her. This is such a strong color that she pulled off well. Her make up was lovely, soft and fresh. Amazing earrings to complete the look.

What a beautiful blue. Good colour for a summer ball.
She looked radiant and happy.

I don't know if I think she looks good because I am thrilled to see some jewels or if in fact she does look good!!! I love the earrings but I am not certain they are great with this gown ... I am not a fan of the gown in that same colour theme that is now her trade make ie boring IMO. She really needs to find her fashion feet IMO BTW what's a linebacker!!!!

I like Charlene's dress this time better than her boring beige ones in the past. She's very timidly making fashion strides, but at least she's making them, it seems. She looks pretty, while Caroline looks wow!!, even at her age.

A linebacker is, in American football, the toughest guy on the field. Traditionally, they are big, broad shouldered and quite scary-looking.

So according to you you can only point out an unattractive physical trait on a person that they can change? Well that is not my rule especially considering I don't want them to change nor am I pointing them out so that they will change. It's their decision and their bodies they can do whatever they want with them. But as long as Charlene keeps showing off her shoulders Im going to notice them and that I find them to be her most unattractive feature I'm not going to praise them.
You can't have a thread talking about a persons looks and style ad expect everyone to be in love with them.
