Front Row @ Versace Spring 2018

Many expected the front row of Versace’s Spring 2018 show to be celeb heavy, but tonight was all about celebrating an icon, so only a trios of stars were front and center.

I was very excited to be seated behind them.

Amber Valleta: I’m sure you’re thinking this tuxedo dress was a bit of a snooze, but this picture doesn’t tell the true story as the party was at the back. The open back was accented with chains for a true rock n’ roll Versace touch.

Charlene, Princess of Monaco: I have never been in the presence of royalty, so this was quite an honour. I was immediately captivated by how statuesque Charlene was. And even more so by her graceful manor and calming presence when the room felt so hectic. There was no diluting the spirit of Versace in this look, her highness perfected her ode to 80s Versace in a cut-out chainmail dress and biker jacket accented with silver medusa’s.

Lewis Hamilton: Now, it was 24 degree today – warmer in the venue – and Lewis was wearing a wool coat, cashmere sweater and leather trousers – not too dissimilar from those he wears on the racetrack. As a fellow weather cautious Brit who also travelled to Milan in leather jacket, I won’t judge Lewis too harshly, but you won’t be surprised to learn that after this picture he was quick to ditch the coat. His assistant/stylist shared that she pulled the look as she wanted something unique that no one else would’ve been wearing, before we shared a joke that sometimes you just have to suffer for a short period for fashion. Good to know that men share this sentiment too.

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Atelier Versace – 69th Monaco Red Cross Ball Gala

Princess Charlene of Monaco and Prince Albert II of Monaco attended the 69th Monaco Red Cross Ball Gala on Friday (July 28) in Monte-Carlo, Monaco.

Dripping in tiny silver sequins, this Atelier Versace custom-made jumpsuit is an exquisite example of brands signature glamour, which was inspired by the Fall 2017 collection.

We don’t always put the words modern and royal in the same sentence, but Princess Charlene’s look could easily grace any red carpet in the world due to its modern femininity, chic characteristics and brimming sex appeal.

The princess’s shimmering beauty was styled with a classic box clutch and strappy sandals from Versace.

I can see this on my BDOTY list. What are your thoughts?

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Christian Dior Couture – 2015 Princess Grace Awards Gala

Princess Charlene of Monaco attended the 2015 Princess Grace Awards Gala at Monaco Palace on Saturday (September 5) in Monte-Carlo, Monaco.

After the shock horrors of Naomi Watts and the Jeremy Scott premiere, I really needed this as a palate cleanser.

Her Serene Highness was elegance personified wearing a dark navy Dior Fall 2015 Couture gown speckled with red embroidery.

With royal protocol being what it is, the neckline was made less revealing, but I think this improves the overall look adding yet more elegance.

I have a feeling some might not like the hair, but I’m rather taken by this boyish-yet-still-feminine-style.

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Akris – Official Presentation Of The Monaco Twins

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Akris - Official Presentation Of The Monaco Twins

On Wednesday (January 7) Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco attended an event for the official presentation of their twins, Prince Jacques, the Hereditary Prince of Monaco, and his sister, Princess Gabriella, in Monaco.

Opting for winter white, the princess wore an Akris cashmere coat and a jersey dress custom made by Albert Kriemler.

Both pieces are gorgeous on their own, but factor in the tawny suede boots and buttery leather gloves and this is an uber-chic lesson in luxe winter dressing.

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Christian Dior Couture – 2014 Princess Grace Awards Gala

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Christian Dior Couture - 2014 Princess Grace Awards Gala

Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco attended the 2014 Princess Grace Awards Gala held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Wednesday (October 8) in Beverly Hills, California hosted by Dior.

The pregnant princess wore a Dior Haute Couture long white pleated georgette empire-waist dress.

I love how the dress goes from a fitted top to an ethereal, airy, billowing silhouette.

Everything about this look, from the hair and makeup to the diamond drop earrings, is so elegant and graceful.
