I have been glancing back at pictures of her appearance at the Red Cross Gala from before she was married. It is lovely to see how both her style and demeanour has become more sophisticated.

I absolutely AGREE! It was a very hard week with difficult emotions to sort through. I give her a lot of credit for not grinning, as if nothing had happened. I think Charlene is working to define/live her role and I give her great credit for growing into it. She knows that she has a platform and, while I think she has decided to not be overt, she has also decided to act with decorum and purpose through her demeanor. And well done IMO.

I loved Charlene's dress. The colors were pretty and the style and fit flattered her. I like such styles on her.

I'm not a fan of Charlene's jumpsuit, but then again I've never been partial to jumpsuits in the first place. I'm not a fan of the white shoes with it either, but I do like her necklace. I love the colours.

although not a fan of jumpsuits myself, i still think she looks dashing. i love how the pants 'flow' and the deep blue hue of the outfit. great pairing with that collar too!

I love the top and flow, and color of jumpsuit but not that its a jumpsuit, or the stripes. Liked it a lot before saw was pants, and the side.

Not a real fan of the necklace. Fan of color but not the massai tribal feel I get.

I love it! You have to be really tall to wear it but she is and a great fit on the bodice too. Strapless so rarely fits well. Love the white stripe down the sides. Does the collar go with the dress or is it a separate piece?

Once again Charlene has treated us to her surprisingly fearless approach to fashion. I'm not usually a fan of jumpsuits, however, Charlene looks fantastic and I love the collar. In fact, I'd love to have a really good look at it. So from me, it's an A+ for sheer chutzpah.

I love it she can pull something like this off. Not many people could.

I like the top half and the colour, don't like the bottom half, in particular the white stripe but then I don't like the sport/leisurewear crossover to high fashion that's around at the moment. I suppose the shoes are a nod to the stripe but again not keen. I love the collar/ necklace - is it South African? I have a feeling she's worn it before or at least, something very similar.

Having seen more pics of the Leonardo DiCaprio event I've decided I quite like the dress after all! 😊

Again she surprises- not a lover of the length of the trouser leg but I love the dramatic necklace which works a treat with the bodice. I agree a sandal might have been better.

Not a fan of the shoe with the pantsuit at all. Not a fan of the length of pant leg either.

The color is beautiful and looks great on her skin...but really the outfit does nothing for her.

The pantsuit is not my cup of tea but I like the top and the zoulou necklace,

The dress she wore at the Leonardo Di caprio gala is beautiful and I like the jewellery.

The dress was from Armani, I hope she will go on to wear the choths of Armani.

I would have loved the jumpsuit except the length. Too short to be elegant. Love the collar!!

I too hope she sticks with Armani. He does wonders for her.

Its a miss for me. The jumpsuit is totally ugly would have been great as a dress. The hilltribe women jewellery looks out of place.

Her overall was great! I thought the white pumps looked lovely with the outfit.
