I agree, Scarebaby. It certainly is a scary time we live in.

I also thought that Charlene looked perfect for the sad event she was attending. Lovely and elegant.

Her look and dress was very appropriate for the event.

Charlene looked perfect. I am so sorry, Melina. Sometimes we feel badly, but it is just headlines. You have spoken of real people you know.

I did not want to sound controversial though. I just hoped to see at least the shoulder covered. That's all:flowers:

She looked lovely but I also would have preferred her shoulders covered in a place of worship. But then I'm old-fashioned like that and don't even like strapless wedding gowns...

It's not being old fashioned. Shoulders should always be covered in Church as a mark of respect and Charlene's were covered so I don't know what the problem is.

I agree. If Princess Charlène had her shoulders covered in Church, it would have been perfect. She looked beautiful but also for me a bit too bare for Mass. She is The Princess of Monaco, not a coincidental touriste popping into an old church. So my expectations are higher too.

Her shoulders(and all that matters)were covered, only her arms were bare. Really, at a sad time like this, is it necessary to split hairs over whether she was appropriately dressed? Of course she was, bearing in mind it is Summer in Monaco , her appearance was understated, fitting the sad occasion.

I'm sorry, it's not "splitting hair". We are all all entitled to our own opinions, and for me (and according to the technical definition of shoulders, which includes the joint on the upper arm), just a little cap sleeve or short sleeve would have done the job. This is a fashion thread and a discussion over appropriate dress code is relevant. So no, her shoulders were not completely covered. It was an official engagement; a religious ceremony in a place of worship. Apart from that the looked lovely.

She should of known better IMO. But so many disregard modest dress when they go to Church nowdays. She's just going along with the trend.

No, I think simply the idea of what is 'modest' has changed. If older women choose to have sleeves and covered hair, that is great. But no need to force out-dated fashion standards on a woman simply because she is royal. There was nothing immodest (revealing) or inappropriate about her black dress.
