I prefer her first outfit over the second (the dinner) but it is true that with Montblanc she looks always fine. As I always say imo elegant but simple is her best version of herself.
Uhm.. I don't find any of her looks inspiring!!!

Her mother is an elegant and lovely 60 year old woman. What's wrong about her?

What's wrong is that to me and many others Princess Caroline looks about 10-15 years older than she should at age 60.

She was one of the most beautiful young women of her generation but began to age unusually rapidly with sagging sallow skin usually associated with sun exposure and nicotine.

I agree however that even with the premature aging the Princess of Hanover could give lessons in natural elegance. She has it in spades.

Caroline looks like a regular 60 year old woman to me. And Charlotte is now in her thirties, she's not going to have the skin she had when she was 16 regardless of her smoking.

Few if any women have the skin of their teen years in their thirties.

But Charlotte is starting to have the "look"...saggy eyelids, tired skin tone, crinkly laugh lines around the eyes and she only entered her thirties a few months ago.and when she smiles her teeth don't seem white

Contrast Charlotte's complexion with the almost flawless one of her contemporary Stephanie de Lannoy who is two years older and who is a non smoker...there is a glaring difference imo.

Caroline also looks to me like a woman of her age - I certainly don't think bears any resemblance to a woman in her 70s.

I also don't recognise some of these descriptions of Charlotte - she doesn't have that rosy adolescent bloom any more but I think she looks just fine, in fact, she look happier and healthier than she has in a while. As for laughter lines - good, it means there's laughter in her life.

I agree Caroline looks 10 to 15 years older with the skin of a smoker. Of course the lung disease, emphysema will follow soon unfortunately.

Not everyone who smokes gets emphysema.

You must know some extremely well-preserved people if you think she looks like a person in their seventies.

That's what I thought as well, such a difference between the photos and that little scene!

Here's another gallery of that evening:

That white skirt is Giambattista Valli. First time in a long while she's not completely outfitted in Gucci for a formal event. I might be overreacting but does this mean her contract is done?

Let up pray moby, let us pray!

This is the first time in a long while(imo) that Charlotte has looked like the old Charlotte, radiant and beautiful.

If she's free, time for Valentino to make its move. Still my dream for her to be their House Muse and to wear those dreamy and romantic Valentino gowns.

Perhaps, but she has always been free to wear other designers besides Gucci. It's not an exclusive contract.

But yes, Valentino would be a far better choice. Craftmanship like no else.

Here are finally a few more pics of the Montblanc press conference at The SIHH - 27th Salon International De La Haute Horlogerie earlier on January 16:

I think it's also because Charlotte has led a not too healthy life. Smoking, nonstop tanning, but also a life of not too much purpose except one round of jet setting after another. It can become tedious and I don't think she's taken good care of herself. All that indulgence at a young age can really undermine the health of someone. By thirty, almost all our life choices and experiences begin to show on our face and body.

I do not agree. She, not overly exposed to the sun. perhaps, also to contract. she is not a chain smoker. Her mother, Caroline, was always exposed to the sun a lot, and still smokes a lot. Charlotte, has her face drawn, and no brighter as before, hardened features.

There are also other people who smoke but are not getting a bad skin. She can also use the most expensive and best face creams in the world, haha!

I am wondering, if she is living in Paris or in that small village out of Paris.

She is so beautiful in the casual pictures at the cafe!

Frankly she looks better than most people her age, smokers or non smokers, but not as good as gym rats her age. As someone pointed out before, she looked best with a few more pounds so her face fills out but for balance, that means more time at the gym which in all the time we follow her, we've never seen do (carrying yoga mats, jogging)! 😅

Thanks for the info.! That designer is my all-time favorite for Charlotte. To this day I cannot get over this dress he made for her:

She looks so happy & content nowadays and it shows. Love the pics of her & her little one.
