  1. You forgot that beautiful plum red gown that she wore to accept an award in Germany. That was her best look ever!

  2. I'm so happy to see her more comfortable in her new role, she's gradually looking more comfortable in the royal lime light. Some beautiful looks here. Esp like the little grand prix dress and the brick-red for the Akris show. There was also a lovely beige ensemble she wore, for Monaco National Day 2011, with a textured skirt, long gloves... and the evening gown with the coat over it for National day 2012. So chic. Love it, even if it's beige. :)

    1. The beige outfit from 2011 is by Akris, so is the evening gown from 2012. Akris actually designed the whole wardrobe for the last two years, but 2012 is my favorite from the two!

  3. According to an interview of Charlene in December 2010 the green dress (33) was a loan from a friend. In the same interview she actually called the dress (together with red nail polish) "like a Christmas tree".

    1. Yes, I remember that interview, she said she was playing squash the whole day then wore the dress and painted her nails red. But that was one of the very first balls she attended, and I believe it wasn't a bad outfit at all!
      She has come a very long way, though!

  5. I love all of her looks. She has great style. The only royal I follow. People definitely need to stop hating on her and give her the attention she deserves. I totally agree.
