I think she looks terrific and that her hair is fine. It is darker than before, possibly her natural color.
I don't like black at the racetrack.
I agree with a previous poster that her makeup should be adjusted with the new hair color

Maybe a bit too dark but I love the sharp and clean cut, it suits her well. The hair is too short that it's unflattering IMO. The red lipstick doesn't suit her.

I love the jumpsuit and jacket - not sure that it was quite the right outfit for the event but whatever... she looked fabulous. The tailoring is superb. Her make up was much better than for the previous night.

As to her hair, I like both cut and new colour but can't help thinking that it would look better if she went back to less round face.

The dress is ok but it looks much better on the model, why did Charlene had the top changed into tank top style??

The race outfit looks too messy and baggy for the event.

This outfit is ok but I don't like her hair this short and wish the Princess would let it grow a bit and give it a bit of length which really suited Charlene.

I've always been a fan of PC's fashion choices, but so far this year she hasn't hit the mark (for me, anyway). That very severe hair cut definitely has something to do with it.

I like this and I think it fits in her wheelhouse. Granted, you would not see snake print this way on any other royal lady, but Charlene is bringing it her own way. And I doubt you see it again much on Charlene. But as a one off, it is not dreadful black in the winter, it fits perfectly, it's not the same old, same old and the fabric is very moderne. Yes, I agree the look is a bit retro, but the fabric is very today. How could you not know this woman is the Princess in the room? My goodness, can this woman wear clothes!

I'm not surprised that ugly dress is Akris. I hope she's not going back to their clothes as she's been dressing so much better since she stopped using them so much.

JMO, but hair is too short and too dark, even if it's her natural color. I think she looked better as a blond. I also do not like the dark lipstick, not flattering at all. (..)

I like the dress. I always try to see the couleur locale: this was no State Evenement but "just" a fundraising gala for AMREF. The dress was perfect for this occasion, to my personal opinion.

Not a fan of her Akris gown. Or her hair or red lips. Just too severe looking. And it is just getting worse.
