Charlotte Casiraghi In Elie Saab – ‘Cartier Exhibition’ Gala Presentation

Charlotte Casiraghi attended the ‘Cartier Exhibition’ gala presentation at the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum in Madrid, Spain, two weeks ago.

She opted to wear an Elie Saab Fall 2012 gown for the occasion.

Whilst grey is admittedly not my favourite colour, this silk-chiffon draped bustier gown with a matching shawl is beautiful on Charlotte.

Charlotte didn’t wearing the matching buckle belt; instead she accessorized with a stunning Cartier choker, a slate-grey clutch and shimmering silver sandals.

A chic updo and flawless makeup completed her look.

I have often wondered why Charlotte’s style is so well regarded, having never been that excited about her red carpet looks, but here, I get it.

You can buy Charlotte’s Elie Saab gown in coral from Boutique 1.

    with a face like this.. it is almost impossible for her to look bad. that said, i wish she was wearing the belt and less matronly shoes. she still looks stunning though.

      +1.I find this color is a bit dull.

    Wow she looks effortlessly flawless, so beautiful. I think she has her own classy unique european style that only she can pull off.

    Ewwww, that’s disgusting, the model’s wearing the dress way too revealingly in the lower area

    She looks beautiful and the styling is perfect: the sandals, the necklace, hair&makeup…everything is great.
    But the runway gown is like my favourite colour, so personally I can’t help but wish she had worn that instead of grey (although it’s a good colour on her).

    Beautiful, classy, elegant! BDOTW already for me ;)

    I would never have pictured Charlotte as an Elie Saab lady (too much sparkle for her taste) but she chooses one of Saab’s simpler pieces. She looks quite amazing in it and that necklace completes it perfectly. Charlotte is a very beautiful lady (that face, that shoulder line) and also an innately refined one. I have always understood the hype around her and shared it. I think she and her mother are among the best dressed women out there.

    Gorgeous and very classy. I don’t miss the belt at all and tho the gown in gorgeous in the original color, it is just a gorgeous in grey. Can she still be considered for BDOTW even tho it was a couple of weeks ago? Hard to imagine what will top this for sheer class.

    • Nat39 November 6, 2012 at 18:40 #

      I don’t miss the belt either, it was a smart choice not to wear it as she had to showcase the Cartier necklace.

    • Linda November 7, 2012 at 00:36 #

      So elegant and beautiful. The colour is divine on her and she’s elegance personified. BDOTW.

    She looks pretty but I like the look book version color.

  11. Jessica Morris November 6, 2012 at 13:42 #

    Elie Saab gowns are beyond perfect!

  12. EmmaWoodhouse November 6, 2012 at 13:42 #

    OH my gosh I have never seen her look this beautiful. Flawless, and I’m glad the slit isn’t showing. It was unspeakably trashy on the model.
    Charlotte looks amazing.

  13. Emmeline November 6, 2012 at 14:31 #

    She looks gorgeous. I actually really like the color, I think it provides a beautiful backdrop for her necklace.

  14. Moxie November 6, 2012 at 15:43 #

    I like the green better, but the grey is elegant.

  15. Beta November 6, 2012 at 16:50 #

    she looks good. While the sandals are not my fave, she looks very royal here.
    I often find the Monaco royals love chanel too much, as in unhealthy, and the pieces they choose are often not particularly flattering. Out of them, my favourite style-wise is Charlene

  16. Pedro November 6, 2012 at 18:12 #

    She is soooooo gorgeous!

  17. Kathy November 6, 2012 at 18:22 #

    I wish she had chosen the dark green version of the dress from the runway, or even the salmon-colored one pictured here. Both are more exciting than the grey, which looks drab and it ages her. Nevertheless, she looks really stunning and I’m in love with the necklace.

  18. TeaAtTwo November 6, 2012 at 23:38 #

    I adore this look- I might have chosen a lighter grey clutch but neverless BDOTW stunning. Her best look since her Giambattista Valli dress at Monaco royal wedding.

    She’s one of the few aristocratic girl who is beautiful, for real. She’s the granddaughter of iconic Grace Kelly, I think it’s enough to be at the center of attention (if you think about all the fuss about an ordinary and usually bad dressed girl like Pippa Middleton…). I think she looks beautiful, here, great dress.

  20. Jess2 November 7, 2012 at 14:39 #

    She looks beautiful and regal! A really great look. I absolutely adore the coral and green versions of this dress!

  21. Amy November 7, 2012 at 19:08 #

    the green version would have been better but she looks regal

  22. Dhppy November 7, 2012 at 20:43 #

    Oooh! That was my first and last reaction to this. Ooooh!

  23. Mickey November 8, 2012 at 00:20 #

    I love the dress and she’s beautiful, but I feel like it doesn’t suit her…
