I like the colour of the green dress but I am not keen on either the design or the material (it looks like coat cloth) and I don't like the shirt underneath. The school outfit is fine in itself but a tad casual and once again, from the 50 shades of creige range.

My first reaction was to agree with posters above that P Charlene's outfit for inaugurating a school was too casual. But then I saw this video via Twitter:

http://royalcorrespondent.com/2014/0...-france-video/

It seems that the couple was scheduled to go down a mine shaft/dugout(?) or something...didn't see her emerge from there though and it looks in the video that she may have arrived seperately from the Prince (maybe still ill from the previous day?). So maybe the plan was to go down the hole and that explains the casual clothing...

The only redeeming element of this ensemble is rich green colour. The rest is just awkward.

I liked the outfit she wore to the African art exhibition, it looked great on her. The outfit Charlene wore to her visit to the Princess Grace Hospital is nice and simple. The green outfit looks nice on Charlene but it's not my cup of tea, and I do agree with the other posters about her latest outfit. Too casual for a royal engagement. I agree with assia, it looks like she's dressed for a walk in the garden rather than a royal engagement.

The first outfit is way too casual. I see some mothers at my school wearing similar things to drop off their kids (and then hit the stores), and the second outfit is a mess, safe for the color, which is quite lovely.

A sleeve-less coat? now I've seen everything. She looks like a tree. Bad outfit. bad choice.

Im not fond in a sleeveless coat but I have to admit that that is a lovely shade of green, on her and in general.

I agree, it is a nice colour on her but that's where it stops. There is something stiff and almost industrial about the fabric and it doesn't move with her.

The blue dress Charlene is wearing on May 17 in connection with a Vuitton show is simply bad. I usually like Charlene's outfits, but this one is really bad and it is waaaayyy too short. A mini that short would perhaps be nice at the age of 16-18, but, Charlene, you are 36. It simply looks bad.

Here is a pic of the dress redtulip is referring to. It's nice, but indeed a bit too short.

Thank you for posting the photo! - I think of Charlene as someone with a classy and elegant style, and a knack for choosing fabulous outfits that suit her personality (as I perceive it to be) and body type. This time she did something different.

Yes, not too keen. Maybe if the sequin line had been on the waist instead of just under the bust might have been more flattering. Like the cuff and the shoes she is wearing.

I love the colour, but that's about it. The dress is a little short for Charlene and I'm not a huge fan on the sequins.

Agreed - the shoes and bracelet are a nice non-matchy fit to the color of the dress. But the sequin block really called for less fussy pieces. And really short.

The dress is short, yes, but it's a fashion show and she has the legs to pull it off. She looks lovely imo.

She may have the legs, but it looks inappropriate and uncomfortable. I don't like the dress at all.

Oh dear I fear Charlene is going through another bad spell- hope she bounces back soon.
