It's not finding the fault; it's describing what is seen.

You don't know that. And making fun of their sexuality isn't quite nice.

Have the Olympic uniforms always been so ugly? I saw a segment on the US uniforms and they looked like bad ugly school uniforms.

The shoes alone are absolutely tragic. I think I was wearing shoes like those as part of my school uniform when I was about 11.

Why is she wearing the Olympic uniform anyway? Is she competing?

Statesmen, royals, etc. do wear the blazers, T-shirts, uniforms of their nation's olympic team as a show of support. It's nothing new. In fact they are given these uniforms as presents. I remember, King harald and Queen Sonja were given the rather funky pants of the Norwegian curling team and were quiete amused by the pattern of those trousers.(http://www.murketing.com/journal/wp-...1266252221.jpg) We'll be seeing lots and lots of royals doing the same thing in the coming days. So, PCharlene was in fact doing what she was supposed to do.

I think the outfit is the usual uniform for sports events, skirt, blazer etc. Its ok. The shoes are positively ugly though, very school mamsell-ish.

As for Princess Charlene outfit at the presentation of Monaco's team, it's kind of cute; reminds me a preppy school uniform.
The shoes are ugly, but I assume they are part of the uniform as well, so she didn't have much choice.

I doubt you will find too many of the female athletes walking into the Olympic Stadium wearing their Jimmy Choo heels with their uniforms.

Which is why I said she didn't have much choice.
Save for the turquoise thingy (which I hated ever since it made its first appearance months ago), I generally do like Charlene's understated choices.

On the other hand, the lack of jewellery is trying because I'm a jewelaholic (a term I'll continue using until it makes an appearance in Oxford dictionary), but Charlene appears to be completely indifferent towards them. If I were in her place, I'd probably don tiaras to do my shopping!

I think one of the requirements of being a princess is that the lady must love and wear jewelry!

As for the Olympic gear: Whenever those Olympics come up, I'm shuddering in advance at the thought of the ugly stuff the designers of team wear will produce this time...
Because the poor female Royals will inevitably be seen in clothes perhaps flattering for six feet tall male athletes (if flattering on any human being at all), but certainly not for them.

Wow I really don't recall all these ugly outfits, probably because I just check out who is winning and the swimming and gymnastics then leave.

Princess Charlene visited the South Africa's swimming team for the London Olympics 2012 during a training session in Monaco
on July 18, 2012, wearing pants and a top. Nothing special but it works for the occasion.

As iceflower said, nothing special but appropriate for the occasion.
The shoes though - I wouldn't necessarily wear high heels to a swimming pool; the floor can get quite slippery sometimes, so not a wise choice.

I agree about the shoes and I also do not like the top, it reminds me of a summer pyjama top.

It's a tank top. It fits the occasion. She looks fine.

I used to have a top in that material in fuschia pink; it was loose, comfortable and casual so this is appropriate for the venue she was visiting. I think flats or sandals would have definitely been safer on a slippery surface, though.
