Neither of these two latest outfits are to my taste. I have never regarded Charlene as a "slave to fashion", but the latest appearance strikes me as something gimmicky and designed to draw attention- not the elegant Charlene I admire.

We are used to this
I don't read it as critique on *her* but on her clothing, that's not the same thing. For all we know she was asked to wear this outfit because she's on front-row and didn't have her say on it.

Actually styling wise overall (clothes and makeup) this outfit works better as a whole than the baggy outfit, and she certainly has the body for it. Wouldn't have chosen it myself for her, too tight and shiny, but i don't know what else people were wearing at the show so maybe it was quite fitting in that setting

As you say, it isn't a criticism of her or her work - I don't like the dress and I think it's cheap looking but I think most Versace is cheap looking. I don't think it flatters her either.

The silver Versace dress was horrible,what on earth was she thinking and more suited to a dreadful celebrity and not for the wife of a reigning monarch.

Kaia Gerber looks just like Cindy Crawford at Vogue Italia | Daily Mail Online
It seems "shiny" indeed seemed to be the keyword for the Versace show

Vogue just published an article saying that Charlene was one of the best dressed at the Versace show!

Her jacket is actually from the mens collection

Yes, lots of people like the look - I've seen quite a few admiring comments on various different sites.

Different strokes, different folks - life would be boring if we always agreed with each other.

Ain't it the truth. She's become more edgy in her dress (goes with her hair that she wears so well). Designers like that.

I'm not a fan of Charlene's latest outfit at all. The dress is much too "blingy" for me and I don't like the slits on the front.

I'm with you on that. Designers like someone in the public eye willing to wear those kinds of ensembles, but I honestly don't think they are attractive in the least.

Beautiful! Love her hair in this picture. When there is some length it makes all the difference imo.

I like this a lot! And this is one of those times I'd like to see some impressive, bold modern gold earring rather than the excellent huge diamond studs. I hope she is wearing a great bracelet, too, but I doubt it.

I don't want to open a side discussion comparing other royals, but I do appreciate that Charlene changes her makeup look regularly. It's a subtlety that not many follow but is indeed part of fashion trends. So it's fun to see that bold red lip (that I love) receding for the fall season for Charlene. Even if I like the red lip better on her - I appreciate that she is changing things up.

And this is unabashedly off topic, but I loathe that cookie duster on the Hubby! Not that he cares what I think.

So we are all satisfied, because I dislike the red but love the neutral.

we all know Charlene can rock the princess of monaco look, as she does here

she could have added a necklace but that's nitpicking.

The first picture shows an angle of the dress we didn’t see earlier.
