Princess Charlene of Monaco In Ralph Lauren – Ralph Lauren Dinner

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Ralph Lauren - Ralph Lauren Dinner

Ralph Lauren hosted an exclusive viewing of his Fall 2013 collection and a private black-tie dinner in celebration of the patron sponsorship and commitment to a 2-year restoration program of L’Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France yesterday evening.

Princess Charlene of Monaco looked breathtaking wearing a custom bi-colour purple strapless Ralph Lauren gown inspired by the Fall 2013 collection which featured a flattering fitted bodice and a voluminous floor-length skirt.

Wearing opulent jewels – as every princess should – she styled the rest of the look with a purple clutch to match her gown and flawless makeup.

On previous occasions I have loved her dress but haven’t been too enamoured with her hair styling, but at this slightly longer length she’s able to play with her hair more and create this sweeping updo.

    Swooning over the color and the earrings.

      Me too.

    Love this. She usually favours such drab (non) colours that I almost didn’t recognize her, she looks much more stricking in this rich colour!
    BDOTW nominee, I say, even if I’m not normally a fan of strapless gowns.

      Yes, I love it too–I’m not a big fan of strapless gowns but this is a beautiful look from her–one of her best ever!

    I hate this look.
    I don’t understand why she always wears strapless dress, I dont’ think this kind of dress is flaterring with her shoulders.
    Her hairstyle is awful and the clutch is not working.

      I agree about the shoulders. But she’s wearing colour and earrings. I’m sold.

        I don’t like her shoulders either but I read a couple of weeks ago that she is particularly proud of them (remember, she was a professionell swimmer back in the day). Maybe this explains why she’s always showing them off.

        I like her styling here very much and the colour of the dress is beautiful.

    I never really like whatever she wears but she looks gourgeous here, nice color on her. I like the hair and looove the jewels.

    she looks amazing. BDOTW nominee

    This is truly impressive – the striking colour, the fit, the dramatic full skirt and jewels, Charlene has the stature and presence to show off this gown to its full effect, it’s a showstopper. BDOTW worthy.

        I agree, she looks truly REGAL!

  9. Lara October 9, 2013 at 20:34 #

    Ditto on the BDOTW nomination.

  10. Yeliz October 9, 2013 at 22:21 #

    LOVE it. She looks flawless and BDOTW worthy no doubtly.

    Have loved her since her swimming days. Yeah Charlene, you look great.

  12. Prudence October 10, 2013 at 03:39 #

    I really do not like this. I agree that strapless dresses are not the best styles for her and I hate the dress itself. The whole bottom part looks messy and ugly. The only good thing about this look is the color.

  13. KatieKate October 10, 2013 at 04:15 #

    I think she should be proud of her beautiful, broad shoulders, long neck, and lovely posture. She looks like she could have been a model. I love this look from h2t. What a striking dress. The color is terrific. The fit impeccable. BDOTW-worthy, indeed!

    The thing I like the most is that for the first time, she doesn t look unhappy and uncomfortable. Don t like the dress much, but she s glowing, I even thought she might be pregnant…

    She looks stunning. I’m delighted to see her in an opulent tone after so many neutral/pastel shades. Also her shoulders are fine, she shouldn’t hide them away.
