Civil wedding outfit in light blue

Lovely colour and Charlene looks great, love the hairstyle and simple jewellery. The top part is fantastic but I am not fond of the long light skirt, looks too much of a nightgown and spoils the outfit a bit for me.

I read also that they were trousers. Even Letizia didn't get married in trousers LOL!

The color is superb. As usual, her hair and make up are perfect. I agree that a knee length skirt would have been better.
would have preferred a family brooch or choker perhaps

Great color but not a fan of the outfit.

Love the color. The rest is not my style at all, if it's a skirt it should have been in knee lenght especially if you wear it with a jacket.

soft colour but a bit dull. Dont like at all the outfit. The skirt reminds me of a nightgown. and the jacket doesnt fit with the skirt. Strange outfill in the whole. She wears much much more beautiful befor. The idea of a long skirt is not so bad. But this one failed to be interesting.

Thanx for the pictures, I think Charlene looks absolutely stunning. Trying to explain to my 3 year old she has to wait till tomorrow to see the wedding dress, and she's being really impatient LOL. Oh well, can't wait to see it. BTW Hello site has some brilliant coverage and all the details of the wedding, for those who haven't seen it yet. Everyone have a great weekend.

Charlene's outfit got full marks from me - that's gotta be a first :-)

Do we know the designer?

It's not a skirt. It must be a dress, but she wears a jacket.

If the dress was knee length it would've been perfect. but I love the simplicity of it!

I'm a little surprised by the design of this outfit for the civil wedding. Princess Charlene looks very beautiful and the colour is absolutely wonderful, but I think the fitted jacket and floaty skirt is quite a mature style to wear because I have seen mothers of the bride wear this kind of thing before. I agree that had the skirt been abit shorter and even the addition of a hat, it would have been nice. Still, it's her wedding and overall it's nice and elegant and simple.

I loved the color and the top half. Then I saw the bottom half and was deeply disappointed. It really does look like Grannie's Nightie!

I keep changing my mind about the total look but love the colour. I also thought she was wearing trousers at first when I saw the clip of them walking from the Palace. I kind of agree with the earlier comment that it had a slightly bride's mother feel to it. ( Not that bride's mother would wear trousers)
