If Charlene was a reality TV or movie star I would give her a 10+. She has the height and body to nail this look.

But for a 39 year old princess, mother-of-two and wife of a Head of State?

No, no, no.

Charlene's look is simple classic elegance. I am certain a decent knockoff of this outfit could be found in some cheap Hollywood Boulevard boutique.

A few weeks ago we saw that metallic Brigitte Nielsen jumpsuit. I hope this is not the beginning of a disturbing new downward trend for the Princess of Monaco.

Looks like it's a grey jumpsuit:

Other than the slippers, I like this outfit. It's very milan esque.

I don't like that look either - not made for her age nor for her position/role as a princess. She can wear it, but it's been a really wrong choice for my taste.

This is just horrid. Maybe i'm wrong but I don't think a mother of two should be wearing this kind of outfit. It looks plastic and cheap.

I didn't mind the jumpsuit so much - I think it's the cut outs over the stomach area that make this look particularly tacky. And she does have an amazing figure but I don't think this dress is especially flattering around her middle area.

Charlene is very elegant and I like the dress and the jumpsuit

Oh my God, we are seeing a part of her skin !

we are in 2017 not in 1900; a princess can show her body , she is not nacked , some princess of Sweden showed us more than a little part of skin before her wedding

If we follow you, a princess must wear 'a burka'

There's a difference in showing some skin in a tasteful manner...there's another in wearing something that strippers would wear.

I see nothing tacky here, she is not nacked and you never saw strippers in your life ! and it is not fair to say that about the princess Charlene but here, on this forum, there are a lot of persons who are criticing Charlene since 2006, who don't love her and come very quickly to critic her
We are used to this

Charlene has developed a style that is elegant, practical and also, never boring - thank goodness the endless beige and neutrals are no longer her only colours.

However, by no stretch of the imagination is the Versace dress elegant...

I mean if any princess can wear it, it's Charlene. That said, I don't like it. Usually, designers send outfits to their front row attendees so it may not have been her choice!

She is the wife of a reining prince, mother of an heir and not the wife of a mud wrestler so it is more about her being elegant, chic and ladylike of which she is *not* in these outfits. There is a time and place to wear something like this and being someone in the public eye all the time , this is not the time. She looks trashy and cheap and not the elegant lady I have seen in the past. Again this is 2017 and time to dress for yr position in life not wearing a burka or being naked has nothing to do with it.

The grey suit is very professional and nice. It would look much better though if it was ironed, and perhaps a size smaller. She looks messy because of both.

Her hair looks better a big longer. And I love her trench

This most recent look is bad. And no it has nothing to do with her showing skin. I certainly have no issue with more modern looks. I have no issue with the skin. And I certainly wouldn't call her a mud wrestler.

That said the design is ugly. And the Material looks cheap.
