Not a fan of this look at all. I think it's too much. I especially dislike the ruffles.

I think the dress looks great when she is moving but the still photos make it appear lke some lost flapper dress recycled it's a shame the colour looks great on her though

I am not liking this look on her at all. Ruffles, sheer black on the bottom..all way too much going on. It lacks sophistication and elegance. I do like the color but that's where it ends for me.

I wouldn't wear it anywhere, but it's a short dress with sequins and ruffles coupled with platform peep-toes and heavy smoky eyed make-up. Many thousands of teenage girls will be vomiting on the pavements in similar dresses up and down the country on Saturday night. Only difference is theirs will likely be more figure hugging (i.e. at least one size too small for them).

I really like the color and style of the pink dress, but I don't like how it fits. It's way too loose around the waist. Her makeup and hair are really lovely though.

The blue dress is hideous. There is way too much going on with this outfit - sequins, lace, ruffles and bows on the shoes. It's all just a hot mess.

I often see a glimpse of Grace in her.

the anniversary picture looked a little too baggy but love the color.
the pink dress was a stunning look, her hair is what it should be.
the sequined dress was a little off, but good for trying.

Charlene in Berlin today.
- Complete outfit
- Close up 1
- Close up 2

I kind of like the upper part, but not with the black pants; the overall effect is too dark and bland.

Very casual outfit IMO and one would think it was a warm winter day.

Was this a formal event? She's wearing flipflops?

The official visit does not formally begin until Monday. Todays arrival was pretty much private.

She is wearing sandals not flip flops.

I love the top but not the pants or sandals.

Those certainly look like flip-flops to me. The outfit looks like something a middle-aged woman would wear to the supermarket. Odd choice.

That outfit doesn't appeal to me at all, especially the sandals/flipflops.

I think she looks good, I love the pants and top combo though I do wonder if she was sweating buckets.

Very sloppy appearance. I'm not liking anything, except her hair style. It looks as if she grabbed whatever was the closest in terms of reaching, put it on, and went on her merry way.

Terrible outfit. Even though they may be sandals, they look like flip flops and the whole grey top is awful.

Charlene herself looks lovely. I dont mind the grey top or pants but the sandals or flip flops is a big no-no for me. You should do better than this when arriving for an offical visit. Obviously there was kind of an official greeting, to turn up in flip flops or sandals that can be mistaken for flip flops is just sloppy.
