It is interesting to see that in a few short months Charlene has changed direction with her style.

After years of cutting edge Armani evening gowns with sharp angles and the brittle elegance of deep, deep colours and an over-abundance generally of black and endless variey of strapless gowns and jumpsuits, it seems she is moving to a softer more luminous look than that of her previous milieu.

Her gowns are in more flattering neutrals, the materials softer, more feminine and flowing, almost romantic. Her hair is dressed in a softer, elegant, yet flattering style and her make-up too is gentler, more luminous and I for one am not sorry to see the back of the heavy-handed black eye-liner.

It was harsh and ageing whereas her overall new look is softer and more natural. She looks more relaxed and although I would love to see her smile more, she seems calm, relaxed, almost serene.

Within a few months she has morphed from;

I hope she can keep it up, although realistically we are in for a few more fashion Wows or Ouches in the next few years as she settles into her own unique style.

This is a truly lovely gown, I think the color is a little off for her, it blends into her skin, but I still think she looks gorgeous. Wow has she built up a trousseu (sp) fast!

She looks stylish, but a bit boring for me.

Caroline's outfit seems more appropriate for a picnic, but Charlene still looks good. Has she worn this before?

Very striking, these two different necklaces together, of Princess Charlene.

Nice outfit, but the color is too dull for Charlene. I like to see her in pinks and purples.

I have to agree that Caro's outfit is more appropriate for the picnic.Ever since the wedding Princess Charlene is more and more formal. This particular outfit is beautifully tailored but does make the new Princess looked washed out a bit.Since the fall collectons throughout the world ask for colour l it might be a good idea to punch something up with splashes of it.jmo

She looks really nice and that is a lovely outfit but not for someone her age, someone older. I really like her pearl necklace and how she wore 2 one longer than the other.

Princess Charlene brings touch of elegance at this sort of event, it is a very important event in Monaco. She is the princess sovereign and she decides what sort of dress code there will be, before Prince Albert was single and princess Caroline was the first lady now times changes with Charlene.
I like her dress and her light coat, She wears blue very well. and I like the necklaces.

Duke of Marmalade 09-11-2011 02:36 AM

Charlene looks classy and elegant and she easily pulls off such expensive and high quality outfits. For me she is easily the best dressed royal among her age group out there. Yes, the outfit might be a little dull due to the colour but I still prefer it a million times to those outfits of the "fashion victim" CPs who are either worn by labels and dont wear them, or fail on the part "how to dress as a princess" and dont think before getting dressed.

I agree. But if Albert wears tie and jacket Charlene can wear this coat ;)

melina premiere 09-11-2011 01:25 PM

Who can judge that it was not appropriate ? as I said , Charlene is now the first lady of Monaco and no more Caroline, times change, it was not a pic nic not with baskets and sandwiches, Charlene made no fault, she knew how was the dress code and she wanted to dress like this, Albert wore a tie and jacket.

It's a very elegant outfit.Love the color.

rominet09 09-12-2011 07:56 AM

Quite a nice outfit... she looks perfect !

blauerengel 09-12-2011 08:31 AM

I like her new look-soft colours,natural make-up that makes her look flawless and princess-like,she looks nice in her flowing silk dresses and she has a good figure to wear these feminine,elegant clothes! Maybe if she grows more confident she will also try out to wear coats that are a little bit more modern.The coats she has worn recently were well-tailored and had a beautiful colour but IMO seem a little bit old-fashioned. Fashion fromValentino or Elie Saab would look absolutely fabulous on her I`m sure...

Recent appearances certainly suggest this, and I for one am hoping it is an evolvement, a transformation into a princess. Charlene is a beautiful woman but has been a little too inclined to 'display' (for my tastes). So here's to her more 'demure' choices! :flowers:

A classic and elegant outfit!
