Charlene Wittstock In Akris – Grand Prix de Monaco

There are very few things that are certain in life. Victoria Beckham is unlikely to smile, Renée Zellweger will always wear Carolina Herrera and the other was Charlene Wittstock would wear Armani, but that appears to have changed.

Charlene Wittstock, fiancée of Albert Prince of Monaco, wore Akris custom ensemble for events surrounding Monaco’s Grand Prix this weekend.

The Princess-in-waiting first Akris look included a black stone appliqué corseted bustier with black silk chiffon pants and the Akris ‘Alice bag’ which she wore to the Amber lounge.

For the Grand Prix qualifying race the following day, she wore a sand Akris bustier with a matching skirt and tan sandals. This was a very refreshing relaxed look for Charlene.

That evening at the JetSet Party on-board a yacht, Charlene opted for an Akris one-shouldered silk jersey dress sans shoes. She accessorized with a pearl necklace and a matching clutch.

A printed voile day dress and Jimmy Choo sandals was the perfect day look for Charlene as she attended Grand Prix on Sunday.

The finale Akris look was a stunning olive paillette gown which she paired with an Akris ‘Ai’ bag.

Charlene sure does know what looks to wear for each occasion.

Each look was presented with the type of effortless elegance we expect from a Princess.

    I’m pretty sure they’ve already announced it will be Armani. But I love that she finally branched out to a different brand here. I love the olive gown and would like to nominate it for BDOTW :)

      Ditto…and I do love all the other outfits on her, especially the printed voile day dress pictured beside the olive gown. She looks cool, quietly confident and very modern in all these outfits.

    She looks so elegant always. I think she’s could give a few pointers to Kate Middleton (although I do love Kate’s style anyhow.)

    This woman leaves me cold. She sucks the life out of everything she puts on

      Me2
      she looks old for her age!
      sooooo matured! Lifeless and ultra classic! …in short boring!

    I LOVE the golden dress, it’s amazing!

    Akris is a brand that doesn’t get enough love on the red carpet so im glad she wore a lot of it here.

    Her fourth dress is Jason Wu:

    I think this post shows that she looks better in Armani

    • Fashion Critic May 31, 2011 at 20:14 #

      All the dresses are by Akris. Whilst that dress is similar, it is not Jason Wu

      • Marvel May 31, 2011 at 20:23 #

        Okay. Just thought it might have been that dress :)

        • Fashion Critic May 31, 2011 at 21:22 #

          it is similar :)

    • Luis May 31, 2011 at 20:43 #

      Very very similar…

  8. Rebecca Z May 31, 2011 at 20:10 #

    She looks great in all these looks
    ks, in my opinion, but I am dying for those tan sandals. Are they Akris as well?

  9. TRCunning May 31, 2011 at 20:11 #

    I love that they all fit her body type – she’s an athlete with broad shoulders and she always seems to have trouble dressing in a way that flatters.

  10. Verena May 31, 2011 at 20:22 #

    Akris really doesn’t get enough credit. They have been consistently great for years. Wasn’t Charlene’s outfit at the Royal Wedding by Akris too?

    • Fashion Critic May 31, 2011 at 20:30 #

      Yes it was

    • noo May 31, 2011 at 20:50 #

      according to some royal fan sites she wears alot of akris, she wears it by day and armani by night. i feel so jealous writing this :D

  11. Luis May 31, 2011 at 20:42 #

    Thank god for her, SamCam and Michelle Obama.

  14. Lucía June 1, 2011 at 11:13 #

    I love every single look :)

  15. Alina June 1, 2011 at 11:19 #

    She looks beautiful in all the looks.

  16. Annel June 1, 2011 at 14:54 #

    Someone used to be a swimmer there. But I actually think she makes broad shoulders look elegant. Not always an easy job.

    • ahot June 1, 2011 at 23:25 #

      Nah, not so sure about this one”makes broad shoulders look elegant”. Especially after her diet for the weeding. Sometimes she dresses dem shoulder well, others not so. That voile dress does nothing for her. Maybe it’s the print.

  17. Raquel June 3, 2011 at 14:42 #

    She looks great in all those looks and she tries to wear what flatter her broad-shoulders-narrow-hips better. What I really like about Charlene is that she doesn’t try to cover her shoulders and pretend they don’t exist, she embraces her body, goes strapless, one-shouldered. Sure it helps that she is very tall and slim, but overall, I think she rocks her broad shoulders.
