Me, personally, I'm rather shocked than excited!

And Charlene at the christening of a new police boat:

Maybe she can wear the beret she spotted in the picture above from now in both inside and outside?

One word : no!!!
I even not go into the suitable or non suitable discussion for a reigning Princess consort..
Simply for a woman in her age, ugly, and not elegant. I am speechless.
And you know what? I would even prefer a total bald, like princess Caroline years ago, or Demi Moor in the movie..
But this half finished, is like she had skin issues in some parts of her head.
The soonest is grows, the better is.

I don't mind if anyone wants to cut his or her hair the way she did. But usually someone does this to make a statement. Not because to look better! No one looks better with a haircut like this, certainly not 40 years old.
Is she doing this because she feels imprisoned? and this is one of the ways she can break out
Wonder what her husband thinks of it.
So for me the question is not is it nice or not but WHY?
(..)than this " I don't care about anyone and anything haircut"

Even though I don't completely agree with the hairstyle; I admire her for breaking away with tradition. It suits her and in some photos it emphasises her beautiful eyes. Anyway it's not the end of the world. Her hair will grow again in a short time.

Feeling like a prisoner breaking free

It's a hair cut people. The beauty of hair it grows back and usually quickly. Its not like she got a face tattoo or altered her body in some severe way.


Maybe she has this crazy idea that a Princes is more then ball gowns, pearls and curly hair with tiaras. You know a modern princess, not fairy tale?


I think its awful. But seriously nothing earth shattering and scandalous.

Try a new hair cut (and the result isn't good). That's it. (And it may happen on you or me.)

While I don't like it, it's very "Charlene", she is a pretty edgy person after all.

Okay. Then I expect you to applaud with equal enthusiasm when in your country the Duchess of Cambridge escorts the Queen, with a fancy hairdo after a "treatment" with a razorblade.

Thank goodness we have the Princess of Hanover as the reigning best dressed Princely lady of Monaco ,Charlene's fashion and style has been on a downward spiral and its now hit rock bottom.

No comment from me on the hairstyle but does anyone have any information on the print Coat she is wearing at this event? I would like to see a full picture of it. I hear it may be by Dior, not sure?

OK, we all know she's not a conventional royal and if Stephanie would have done it nobody would have blinked an eye, in general I don't mind an undercut for women, there are a few nice celebrity examples (eg Scarlett Johansson) but in this case, Charlene doesn't have the hair structure to pull it off.

On this forum I see comparisons with Princess Caroline. But when the Princess of Hannover appeared with a shaven head, it was because of sudden temporary hair loss (alopecia areata), usually caused by a disbalance in the autoimmunity system.

i'm not a fan but i admire her for sporting whatever style she wants, and kudos to her husband for being supportive. had it been another royal i'd probably not think it is appropriate but let's admit it, monaco is not the traditional monarchies of spain or UK so she has way more leeway to do as she pleases, even with a non ortodox hairstyle. good on her for feeling confident to do it.

Well Grace and Ranier were traditional and so are Caroline and Albert. Stephanie was the only family member who was off the wall in her style and behaviour. Let's face it, C's hairstyle isn't edgy it's ridiculous looking. She is the wife of a head of state for goodness sake. Can you imagine her with this stupid hair welcoming another head of state like the Chinese President to Monaco, it's a totally unprofessional look at the very least.

I don't think Charlene is too bothered she has always done as she pleases over the years and the Viking Princess look is part of all that.

Yes she was brave to do it yes but does it befit the wife of a reigning monarch no in my opinion plus she looks silly.

The coat is indeed by Dior, part of the Cruise 2020 Collection. Here you can see a full view:

I don't find it an attractive style, but after all, hair grows.
It's most likely temporary.

How do we know Albert was "supportive" of his wife's bizarre new look? I have suspected for many years that Charlene does pretty much what she wants, regardless of the feelings of her husband or the Monegasques...and that this is a key factor in the dynamics of the marriage.:ermm

Can you visualize this look with a tiara? Thank goodness she doesn't wear them. It would look like a cartoon.


ETA: Don't care for the Dior coat either.

HSH Princess Charlène's new haircut either reminds me of a soccer hooligan or the defunct Dutch "gabber" subculture that included shaven heads, Australian training suits and bomber jackets.

Experimenting is one thing, but whether it fits and, in her case, is appropriate, is another.

Her hair as the wife of the head of state it is unacceptable. Can yo imagine this with a tiara? not to mention to meet other head of states ? What ever is the reason it is out of place. but then again she is not the hard working Princess like the other ones in the rest of Europe. She doe more or less what she please.
