This dress is unbelievably inappropriate for an official "princess" event IMO. Too bad because I love the color.

If the dress had a lining the same color it would have been wonderful. Love the color and the cut, but being able to see whatever was beige/white underneath was not a good look. She does look happy in the pictures though. That has to count for something, right??

The only thing I don't like about the dress is the see-through aspect. The color and cut are perfect.

Yes, the fit is fantastic. I just can't get over the see-through portion. She does look happy here.

She needs to look in the mirror before she goes out....see thru garments?? That should never happen.

I love it - it looks like a lining to me that we're seeing. The full effect is likely not obvious from a snap. Let's face it, Charlene is bringing her own way with style and what is 'appropriate'. It's a new world. With her, the old rules do not apply. She is always upbeat and fresh in a modern but not too trendy way. I think she's getting the balance right. It's always interesting to see what she's come up with.

I think she looks great - good color, Great Hair, nice make-up and just all round looking very fine. Well done, Charlene!

I'm with most other posters - great colour but the transparent part doesnt look good, it accentuates the but far too much.

in that dress she looks a bit like a 16 year old gymnast from the former communist east european countries (except that she is not flatchested enough).

I agree with most members, love the color and cut, not the see-through part. Terrible!

That dress is just ugly, as are the shoes.

her but? Is there a picture of the dress from the back? I can only see that it accentuates her breasts.

I really disliked her lace pantsuit and while the color of her dress is beautiful, the transparent aspect is not a good look even if that's a lining beneath.

Doesn't look see through or transparent at all to me, more like a sparkly embellishment or pattern on a rose coloured dress. Rather attractive IMO.
