Lovely outfit but I wished of her pumps to be more that shade of her outfit.
Her clutch is by Dior.

Wow. I just noticed how heavy her makeup is. :ermm:

I like her outfit, her mantilla is very beautiful

Pranter 01-18-2016 11:49 AM

Interesting that she wears a white mantilla...usually (and it's not a rule) married women wear darker colored veils.

It is not the sujet of this board here Pranter, it is the fashion board but only the catholic Queens consort and catholic princesses consort are wearing the white ,it is the privilege of the blanc, they are wearing white mantilla , it is the protocole.

Yesterday I read an article speculating as to which Charlene would wear when she met the pope today. Appearantly only 7 or 8 Women can wear white when meeting HH. It has to do with being Catholic and the spouse of a Catholic King or Prince. If Maxima met the Pope she would have to wear black even tho she is a Catholic Queen and her husband is King ( but not Catholic).

Yes. Daily Mail has info on the custom.

Approaching this from a purely fashion point of view, these are my thoughts on Charlene's outfit:

I can't stand when she wears cream, beige, greige, neutral bleuh so guess what? I don't love it. What I do like is when she wears white - proper achingly bright white - because I think it looks amazing on her. So, I love the mantilla. With the pop of bright lipstick it looks fabulous.

However, I also don't like mixing white and cream because I don't think they go.

The coat - apart from the colour - funny length. Either go more tailored and considerably shorter or keep it loose but long enough to hide the hemline of the dress. That annoying couple of inches below the coat is just wrong.

So, to sum up - a mixed bag for me. Others, will disagree, I'm sure. 😜

Pranter 01-18-2016 04:25 PM

Ah gotcha...I didn't realize she was meeting with pope Francis. I know about the 'privilege of white' ...that makes sense then.

She looked beautiful but I wish the veil was the same cream color of the coat and the coat covered the dress underneath. Her makeup was fantastic, but too heavy to meet the pope.

An exquisite and refined outfit. She looks lovely.

Princess Charlene is very beautiful. And i love the Mantilla.

Marty91charmed 01-19-2016 05:29 AM

Charlene looked really stunning and elegant for the meeting with the Pope!

Elly C 01-21-2016 11:18 AM

I really don't like this outfit even though I think she carries off an elegant look. It is a combination of the mixture of cream and white, the shape of the coat and the rather heavy makeup. I know I'm in the minority, but I don't think it is a particularly flattering overall appearance.

Not at all. Several people have said similar things, me included. I really don't like white and cream together and I don't like Charlene in cream at all.

Countessmeout 01-21-2016 01:05 PM

I like the outfit, minus the gloves, but the makeup is way too much IMO

MARG 01-21-2016 07:14 PM

:previous: I have a agree. Charlene's makeup almost always looks spot on but on this occasion it looked like it had been applied with a trowel!

Perfect Charlene as usual !!
