    1. Indeed! Classy makeup, great hairstyle and stunning dress and earrings. Albert needs a new tailor!

    2. Yes I agree fully, however her smile is missing.

      Delete
    3. MaryT, I look closely and I think that lack of broad smile is due to, perhaps, a recent "nip-and-tuck" ?
      She looks stunning all and all and this particular shade of green is great on the Princess. Beautiful!

  3. Ma princesse préférée porte une très jolie robe qui lui sied à merveille.
    Je la trouve élégante.
    Ses boucles d'oreilles sont tout simplement magnifiques.
    Quant à la coiffure,J adooore.

  4. Wenn ich mir die Fotos so anschaue, könnte man glatt meinen, Charlene hat sich kurz zuvor Botox o.ä. spritzen lassen.
    Schrecklich.
    Ansonsten: Frisur wunderbar, Schmuck und Kleid ebenso.

    1. WOW in big capital letters. But Prince Albert needs somme work at the gym and a change of tailor.

    2. Deadeggs - indeed. I wish he was on par with the elegance and glamour of his wife, instead he looks like a waiter at best. The fit of his jacket and trousers is really poor.

    3. Albert is fond of a full break on his trousers, though I would say that is much more than a full break. He might try a half break, just to wean himself down to a quarter break. He would look taller (and tidier) if his pants did not puddle around his ankles.

  7. That is a stunning ball gown and a nice color for Charlene. Love her hair, the texture of her hair seems to be fine and maybe just a bit thin; however she works to find a style that suits her hair and not what everyone else does. I so admire her style. She seems to have a certain mystic about her and holds a bit back -- good for her -- what an amazing lady.

    I love beautiful green dress. Incredible!

  10. Green is quite often a difficult colour, but this is a beautiful dress and well chosen. Now, a bright smile would be beautiful too!!

  11. This is just a stunning and welcome change for Princess Charlene! She's discovered color, a feminine hairdo, softer makeup colors, shapely tailoring - just wow, wow, wow! So often she has looked hard and frightening, but NOT now. Well done, Princess Charlene.

  12. Very beautiful I must say I thought her hair grew and she had a bun in the back of her hair but it wasn't and wish she had added a gold bracelet but it probably would have been too much bling. Overall its beautiful, where are the other members of the family ??

      But they don't normally attend the Red Cross Gala anyway.

  13. Bold color in a fluid fabric, soft make-up, and major earrings make for a winning combination.

    The world needs more capes.

  14. Fantastic look on Princess Charlene. She looks very regal. Hair, make up and earrings are on point.

  15. If anyone should be wearing a dress like this it's Charlene, with her height, broad shoulders and general statuesque figure...and my goodness she looks marvellous in it!
    It's an interesting shade of green, but I think it might have looked even more striking if it had been a deeper, jewel toned emerald green. Still, she looks fantastic in it. Brava!

  17. Pss Charlene looks like a Million Dollar. Best look ever and the color is great. The earrings are stunning. Now this is perfection.

    1. Easy. With approx. 1.4 billion Dollars in the bank it should be easy to fork out 12k for a dress. Well, not for an iron but the skirt of the dress was badly in need for one.

    2. Annoymous 8:25pm, nobody keeps that kind of money in bank. Networth means investments in property and assets

    3. Oh, really? You mean, they can't just go to their bank safe, dig out the 12.000 quid and leave? Pity. That's maybe the reason that the dress remained unironed. No cash left to buy one.

  18. Beautiful dress, beautiful color. Charlene's face somehow looks different.

  19. Charlene looks beautiful. The color and fit are perfect. She wears the gown much better than the model. Her earrings are all that is needed as a finishing touch.

  20. I agree this is a stunning look on Princess Charlene. She looks better than the model imo.

  21. I share the point of view that this dress fits very well on Charlene...but like Rainha Leonor, It lack the best of it: a wonderful smile.

    1. Agree with you and Rainha.

    2. I also agree. She does not look happy.

    3. Well, last but not least a discovered a lovely smile, while she was dancing with Albert! (on the later published pictures) She should smile a lot more, because she looks great when she does...

    4. Today on Tuesday 30th we could conclude that she did not look happy on Friday 27 because of the wedding on the next day, who knows?

  24. Great dress in an extraordinary color. And somehow she looks pretty different. Very attractive - with the certain glow. She should ????? The time will tell.

  25. Utterly stunning from head to toe. Love the soft waves in her hair, the drape and flow of the gown, the gorgeous Repossi earrings. Fabulous.

    Also, her smile wasnt missing - plenty of photos of her smiling.

    1. Agree her smile wasn´t missing. But the smile of others is missing e.g. Charlotte, Stephanie, Caroline, Pauline, Marie..

      Delete
    2. Would have been surprised to see Stephanie and family smiling at the Red Cross Gala given it was Louis civil wedding reception.

      Charlotte has never attended so why would she start now? She may also have been with Louis and Marie.

      Caroline also hasn't gone for years - it seems it's the Albert and Charlene show now.

      Delete
  26. Looking at the photos to start and then the ones where they're dancing I think she's just uncomfortable in the spotlight. She wasn't raised in these circles and if she's introverted which I believe both Albert and her are she will never appear fully comfortable. Further the media decides which pics to show and they'll always show ones where she's not smiling to remind you of the brouhaha at the wedding. That generates more interest. I also THINK she's just so different from his family that unless required they just don't interact much. Happens in many families.

    1. I think you just hit the nail on the head....... not everyone loves to be in the spotlight like e.g. Maxima. I do not like the latter’s over the the top screaming with laughter always and everywhere.....

      Delete
    2. Many other commoners married into royal carry themselves well; Maxima, Mary, Kate. Charlene was an olympian she had the advantage of being the spotlight from a young age, doing sports interview on camera. In the beginning, when she was his girlfriend she used to smile alot at these events

      Delete
    3. Being an Olympian in no way compares to being a princess. I think this would be very overwhelming for most people. Princess Grace, being an Academy Award winning actress, was accustomed to the spotlight. Charlene may have thought she knew what to expect, but living it was probably very different. That may be why she is exposing her children to it so young. Her own sister-in-law, Stephanie, doesn't smile often. She isn't even smiling in the picture at her son's wedding. We don't know what Charlene is like when the cameras aren't on her. It is very nice when we see her smile, but my feeling is that she probably has a lot of anxiety in those situations.

  33. La encuentro muy guapa. Siempre lleva modelos costosos pero muy minimalistas que no dejan ver su feminidad.
    Lo de la sonrisa no lo entiendo. En casi todas los actos de Mónaco sale muy seria. Sin embargo en los viajes que hace a Australia siempre está con la sonrisa en la boca
