Well it seems that Prince Albert was in his office last night (or at least his office lights were on) so I think he's not in Davos thus probably having dinner with Charlene somewhere. Although I am no fan of hers I will at least wish her a happy birthday.

There is an article about Charlene and Albert's visit to Austria in the latest YOU magazine. Nothing new in the article just that they met up with Gerhard Berger and left on on New Year's Day.

I have scanned in the few pictures that are in the magazine (a few different ones) to Imageshack but I am having a problem adding a link to the forum. So if anyone can help please let me know. Thanks

The Zululand Observer (http: //www.zululandobserver.co.za/article12.htm) had an article about swimming results and says CHarlene was beaten in her event by someone almost have her age and they referred to Charlene as a visiting SA swimmer. Not sure exactly the date of the competition but it was this month.

If anyone is interested the formal dresses that Charlene wore to the functions she attended last year was from a South African designer (I think someone did post about it before so sorry if the info is duplicated). You can look at the press gallery there are magazine covers and articles of Charlene and Albert.

Not a problem. Although IMO he had a quite a few designs that I personally thought would have suited Charlene better than those that were chosen.

I think it speaks to her training efforts.

Some of the wedding dresses in his collection are lovely. I wonder if that is a preview of the one she would wear?

I agree, I think the third wedding dress is very pretty.

I have hosted the photos that I scanned via Photobucket so I hope the links work. (Moderators: if I have not linked correctly please delete the links, Thanks)

Photos from article in YOU Magazine. (see my previous post)

Charlene at Amade reception as HRH Princess Caroline's Guest

I have just reviewed the pictures in Point de Vue Images de Monde of Miss Charlene Wittstock as photographed at the Amade reception in South Africa escorted by Pierre Casiraghi.She was invited by HRH Princess Caroline.and sat across from her as is the French tradition.Miss Wittstock entered after HRH Princess Caroline which I thought was unusual and a breach of protocol.
Her attire and comportment do not impress me. The evening gown which Miss Wittstock wore had a plethora of turquoise and black sequins flashing from a bustier that was halter. .Halters are to make the bustline look more compact.That is an area Miss Wittstock need not compact anymore for the sake of symmetry. Further I could not reconcile the plunging neckline, the bareness of the gown with the cause of the reception which was children.Miss Wittstock was especially trim[also interpreted as cachexis] but forgot to sport large earrings to take away from her aquiline nose which was rather protruding in profile. Her hair upswept in a French role empasized the bones of her physiognomy instead of enhancing them.Updos are usually reserved for ladies who have Venusian profiles like Princess Grace.Finally I could not reconcile the flashy entrance,the orgy of sequins with the cause of children and felt that perhaps Miss Wittstock lacks maturity,sobriety, should alas be less self interested and thus declasse. Miss Wittstock who has humility did not make this apparent on this occasion. Amade is for underpriviledged children and the attempted glamour of Miss Wittstock on this occasion looked like an orgy smiting the souls of those needy children everywhere.Instead of appearing as an amabassadress for the cause of those children whose arms are outstreched Miss Wittstock appeared like a beauty pageant contestant.To paraphrase Mr.Blackwell at his best Miss Wittstock looked like a Hawaian Bar Mitzvah and the spotlight was on her instead of the cause of Amade. JMO.

I couldn't agree more. Her gown was entirely inappropriate for the occasion. She was trying to hard to call attention to herself instead of calling attention to the cause. I believe Miss Wittstock requires a large dose of humility and a larger dose of class and sophistication. She should have used her hostess, our dear Princess Caroline, as an example on how to dress and carry herself at such events. Will CW ever learn?

big hair,a lot of sequence spells..........

imo its spells looking for attention. its a shame she would a dress in that fashion to a children benefit gala. what in the world was she thinking? oops i guess she wasnt thinking about anything other than herself.
(again people imo)
imo -its like he has no common sense hanging out in public with a girl like her or allowing his family to do things in public with her.
if this is "the one" i hope she is worth it because they are all looking like a bunch of nuts-imo people, so dont get upset

I think it was mistake to invate Charlene to AMADE gala. She has taken all attention from Princess Caroline and her charity.
