Disappointing, I mean pants! The color might be nice but the ace at the bottom of the wide pants is just wrong and as DoM said, looks like a night gown. The jacket is more of a cardigan jacket (one of those really light jackets that pass for sweaters). The overall just didn't work for me and I was expecting something more glamorous, more Princess type. Headpiece was also missing, big disappointment as well.

I hope tomorrow she does pull it off well.

There was an article last month or so saying that Charlene commissioned Akris & Armani are doing outfits for Charlene for her wedding. It didn't mention who did which outfit but it was mentioned that Armani was doing the dress therefore Akris must of done this.

Love the colour and think that both the dress and jacket are lovley-they just don't work very well together IMO. I think the jacket looks like a daytime suit jacket and that's an evening dress. However, I don't think it's awful and I agree that her hair, make-up etc are perfect.

Actually I thought that Charlene would wear another kind of outfit, overall she looks pretty.

The dress is nice, and would probably look even better without that jacket!

I think so too. It moved quite beautifully aswell. But it wasn't a dress, but a one-piece pant suit. Just with very flowy fabrics around it to give it a dress effect.

...and the only hat around was the strange thing worn by P Caroline - I would have hoped for more.

...and I don't like the idea of trousers here - although they don't look like trousers at all.
BUT - very nice colour - and she looked radiant and happy.

I really like what Charlene wore and think she looked beautiful. From what I can see of the british papers (still haven't seen the Irish yet) it's getting very little coverage. The two kates (Middleton and Moss) are taking over.

With the jacket/blazer, it looks like Princess Bea chose her outfit. Without the top, the dress is rather nice but unwedding like. I do wish she would forget Armani because Georgio's clothes wear her.

I think Princess Mathilde and Mary were lovely but what's with Maxima and Mette Marit wearing white/cream/ivory?

I am not surprised for one of the 'kates' - because she is a British Royal Duchess and her country would prioritise her engagements. But the Monaco wedding is well covered with the French and Monaco papers.

Yeah, they're pants. You can get a better glimpse of them in these photos.
