  1. The color of this dress is great, but what is that thing sticking out, this is horrible. It looks like the large slip is sliding down,also the boots I think is a no no. This of course is OMO.

    1. We wait for a long time for the day she wears color and then she wears this!

    2. The colour of the dress and the makeup are perfect but imho the cut of the dress isn´t flattering on Charlene and on top the boots are speaking another language.
      She can do much better.

  2. I am not sure if this race has anything in common with the Kentucky Derby in the US, where women wear outrageous hats and unique outfits in good fun, but Charlene's outfit looks mostly like a costume, and not a very flattering one at that.

    1. Confused, but you may be on to something with the Kentucky Derby or ladies day at Ascot which is headed in the same direction. Beautiful 50's vibe until it gets to the dust ruffle.

    2. The shredded rag jumpsuit and matching turban would suggest you are on to something. She was wise to stand next to that mess. It makes her look quite chic by comparison.

  4. Oh well in the minority here but I like it. The blue is stunning on her and I think it contrasts well with the black. Possibly some elegant shoes or sandals might have been better than the boots but she's definitely making a statement. Can can anyone?

  5. Do you remember the movie “Can Can?”

  6. I agree with Ninius and Myriam.

  7. A dress more suitable to dance the French-cancan than to pray in front of this monument

  8. What was she thinking!? She looks as if she came from a Western saloon and will start Cancan any moment. The boots are just horrible.

  9. Charlene is so beautiful, but fashion-wise she can sometimes be her own worst enemy. We've seen her in some pretty strange outfits, but this one has to be one of the strangest.

  10. I love it, the sleeves could use a little trim, otherwise great for the occasion.

  11. I usually like the way she dresses but everything about this outfit is just wrong, from the can can type skirt to the boots with a wedge heel. What was she thinking but she does looks good in blue, I can say that.

  15. I don't know what was going on here. This was a mess all over!

  16. I am very impressed to know that Turffontein Racecourse in Johannesburg, South Africa is one of the best racecourses in the world the same as the Royal Ascot in UK and Dubai World Race in Dubai, UAE.

  17. In anglo-saxon culture, race meetings like these are "fun" days. For the women, it's almost like a fancy dress party. Fashion, mode etc are not respected and you just do your own thing and have fun. I think Charlene seems to be well into the swing of things. I hope a good time was had by all.

    1. Thanks for stating this. I’ve been furious reading comments from people who don’t know the proper attire for this event.

  19. Deadeggs ,est-ce un concours de la robe la plus laide ?

    1. Not at all. Crazy styles, fun dresses, eccentricity (both with hats and dresses) are the order of the day. The women give Dior, Armani etc a day off. Charlene is respecting the anglo-saxon culture of a fun day at the races. Thanks for respecting this tradition Charlene and I hope you and everybody else had a great day with lots of laughs.
