I can see if she wants to tone down the jewels and embellishments, but for the things of all things holy, she is representing her country, husband and herself.

I admit I'm totally baffled. To me it looks like she's gone out of her way to look horrible.
I'm sorry but come on.... the semi see-through of this weekend was unfortunate, there have been some bland outfits, but there have also been some great outfits, particularly when she's dressing casually or for visits with a lot of kids involved
No need for drama..

Wow! Now that outfit is stunning! Fabulous colour on her! Matching bag and earrings and even a bracelet. She looks terrific.

She pulled out all the stops, and I love it. The color and cut of the dress are great on her, and the jewelry is well chosen. Well done .

Hallelujah! Is this why you've been going without any jewelry Charlene? To starve us and then surprise us with big gorgeous earrings and a bracelet? The dress is divine, a fantastic blue/violet, terrific skirt, makeup that makes her face look so soft and great hairstyle, I like the volume lately.

Is it a Lauren dress?

Gosh. When she pulls out all stops she surely is a sight to behold. This is close to perfection. One of PC's best 'looks' of the year. I adore.
