The Olympics meeting was between Annecy (France), Munich (Germany) and Pyeongchang (South Korea).

The latter won.

Earlier, in the Plenary meeting, PA was asking questions to Jacques Rogge.....

It is a meeting with the Presdent! You cannot dress as if you were going to the beach!!

Too true. However, she -- or rather, her dress sense -- is not going to be judged on his inadequacies and shortcomings. I sincerely hope that she puts some thought into what she wears for official appointments, or at least seek some professional advice.

I for one see nothing wrong with what the Princess of Monaco wore when meeting with the President of South Africa. The white crochet evening gown was a perfectly respectable choice.

Respectable, yes. But she keeps accentuating those lethal shoulders at every opportunity.

LOL !!! That's below the belt.... if you pardon the pun....

Well, both of them have brought it on themselves. Wives and mistresses can be very expensive and time-consuming. But even PA probably would not find the time to indulge his penchant - compared to the South African gentleman....

I like her outfit a lot. This material is one of my favourites and it's really summery.

Her shoulders will always be considered a prominent feature in any evening gown she wears. It's unavoidable unless she consistently covers them which may or may not bring them more attention.

And why should she cover them? She's clearly comfortable and confident in herself which is great. Though in saying that I don't seem to notice them so much anymore, and think she's forming an appropriate style for her shape.

There's nothing much she can do about them in any case, and to a degree she can 'accommodate' them but realistically, it's best people get accustomed to her swimmers build and learn to accept her shape for what it is.

For those that care, that is..

as a clothing designer, I can heartily assure you, there are many ways not to draw attention to her shoulders- which are a "prominent feature". For starters, of all the possible necklines she could choose, none is worse than accentuating her shoulders than ( unfortunately ) the style that she wore here. She may be comfortable in it indeed( many of her swimsuits I am sure have the exact same neckline!)- but- I have to agree- this neckline is one she should avoid at all costs.
However, I have to say, the dress in of itself, is quite nice and appropriate for the location and all. Crochet may be "casual" to some- but this is a lovely lined dress- and I can heartily assure you cost quite the pretty penny. Short of that neckline- I think it's a lovely selection!
