I think "sheer opulance" is a Monagasque by word, and they do it very well. Charlene's personal style seems fairly minimalist, and Albert is quite casual, but for a state wedding in Monaco opulance is the way to go.

I might be out of line with this because I'm chiming in on this discussion so late but..... I wish she could have worn the tiara in this video at her wedding. It is so unique, sleek, minimalist and elegant at the same time, and it looks so good on her!!!!!

I am up and down on my feelings on this wedding dress.

I thought it is a nice dress but not original.I am not a fan of jewels on a wedding dress since I prefer classic and timeless wedding dresses.Also,I am not a fan of the trains.

Neverless,I am not a fan.

I agree that the dress is unoriginal and a standard Armani dress, but I for one did like the crystal designs down the front of her gown and it was nice to see a watteau train which is not a usual choice for bride whether royal or not. Perhaps the train that extended from her feet shouldn't have been the exact length of her train from her shoulders. The dress was unorignial, but the two trains idea did provide a unique feel to the overall outfit. While she was walking down the aisle the two trains seemed "too much" but when she was at the alter, I believe they spread the trains out in opposite directions and it ended up looking very beautiful.

I saw the the gown of princess Charlene at the exhibition at the oceanic museum. I never saw a so beautiful dress with so many crystals. Her two trains were very royal. Armani made a wonderfull work. For me it was the most beautiful bride of the year. Nobody else

Well, at least the two gowns can get some money and publicity for Monaco, all over the world.

Totally agree. While I haven't seen the dress up close, for me, it was exquisite and perfect for Charlene.

Kate Middleton's was lovely, CP Victoria's was gorgeous but Charlene's was WOW !! (in my opinion).

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Readers' Top 10 Wedding Gowns: #8. Princess Charlene of Monaco

Like I said before, not a fan of this dress as I think it is not original and it's a very typical Armani wedding dress. Though, it's not horrible either. I like the neckline of the dress. The details of the gown are interesting but, not a fan of jewels on wedding dresses. Really dislike the two trains also. Not sure if I like the veil. I do however think her hairstyle is fantastic. I prefer that she wore a tiara but, her hairpiece is stunning. Overall, not a bad wedding dress nor a great wedding dress in my opinion. I would not put this in my top ten nor anywhere near it.

I am surprised (judging by most comments about it) that Charlene's dress would make it to a top ten list!

Like the author of the blog I also wonder what happened to her relationship with Armani...?
