The Princess of Monaco at her gorgeous, glamorous best-I'm loving it!

P Charlene looks amazing: not only in a stunning dress, but also happy, healthy and suntanned.

I think this is also a very beautiful pic of P Jacques, smiling away. His shirt has the logo of the expedition.

It's a beautiful dress, but seems an odd choice for this event.

Beautiful gown and colour on Princess Charlene,plus her hair looks so much better with a bit of lenght in it and less severe looking.

Charlene wore a glittering jump suit tonight with spiky blonde hair. She carries it off very well, IMO.

Not a fan of this on her. I like the color but not the style.

I don't like jump suits on anyone.

I do like how she finds ways to experiment with her short hair, though, and I love this spiky style. I wouldn't have thought you'd be able to change styles much with hair that short but she proves me wrong.

P Albert must have gone weak in the knees at the sight of his wife in this outfit! Absolutely breathtaking! Versace, I believe.

But maybe I would prefer her hair styled differently: still off her face, but a little softer, like at the Herculis meeting.

I do like her make up which is not too dramatic.

Yes - in a year when we have seen a lot of red lip, this was a lovely pink.

And JMO, but if I cannot tell it is pants without seeing a photo of her walking, then it avoids all the "jumpsuit" issues that most of us loathe.

I also think there has been a major callback in fashion to deco looks. The beading on this is IMO Deco. So it's trendy and maybe not everyone's taste. But not a train wreck, given that context.

Yes, I agree. At first glance it does not look like a jumpsuit at all. Much less than the red one she wore 2 years (?) ago. It is so wide at the bottom and if it falls softly then one cannot see a jumpsuit at all. She seems to like this style since their civil wedding. And whether it is a jumpsuit or a gown she still looks spectacular.

I cannot deny that she is drop dead strikingly glamorous in that outfit. How could she not be? Charlene checks all the boxes and would look great in a burlap sack.

The problem is that she looks like a starlet on the red carpet who is trying way, way too hard to make an impression, not like the glamorous but ELEGANT Serene Highness of Monaco that has blown me away for the last six years.

Oh well. I bet she got everyone's attention her.

I totally love this look! It's so glamorous and on point, and really shows off her athletic curves. She's an "Amazon"; and I love how she asserts her own (and very unique) style. Princess Charlene, you rocked that room!

I don't love the look per se, but it is perfect for Monaco and she looks fabulous in every way, jumpsuit, hair and makeup.

Yes it was Versace.

For me not her best look for the Red Cross Ball!

I don't like this "Charlene as Brigitte Nielsen" -look at all. The jumpsuit is too tight and Charlene's make up is horrible. She looks cold and unhappy, a genuine smile would have done wonders.

The red dress was beautiful and simple.

The metallic pantsuit, well, it looked unflattering (the massive shoulders) and uncomfortable (the waist). I immediately thought of a mixture between Brigitte Nielsen and X-men's Emma Frost, not in a good way.

Not sure if 'that's Monaco' is always an excuse for an over-the-top outfit.

The red was fantastic. She looks a tad over dressed though compared to others.

The ball was horrible. Would be slightly better if gown not jumpsuit but not much. She looks like a character from sci if movie. I usually like her hair, definitely not one who thinks pixie cuts are mannish, but the spikes just add yo the badness of this look.
