Princess Charlene of Monaco In Stella McCartney – 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards

Prince Albert II of Monaco and his wife Charlene, Princess of Monaco attended the 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards on Tuesday (February 27) in Monaco, where a host of sporting heroes and heroines also took to the red carpet.

Charlene was looking ever so graceful wearing a Stella McCartney Spring 2018 white gown which possessed many of the British designers signatures: refined tailoring, a fuss-free silhouette and a muted colour palette.

While I love the relaxed, yet glamorous nature of the dress which she amped up with some stunning jewels, I was a little taken back by her hair on this occasion. I love the style, but not the royal roots.

But nothing is more shocking than the sight of Prince Albert wearing sneakers with his tux. I know it was a sports awards, but it not a great look for a middle-aged man.

You may remember that Kate Hudson wore this same gown to the 2017 Met Gala.

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Akris – Monaco National Day & Gala

Princess Charlene attended the Monaco National day celebrations on Sunday (November 19) where she opted for two gorgeous outfits.

Appropriately wearing royal-blue, her custom made coat – fittingly sumptuous in velvet – was designed by her favourite brand Akris.

The regal air really kicks into gear when you observe her accessories which included navy suede pointed heels, an asymmetric hat and gloves.

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Ralph Lauren – 2017 Princess Grace Awards Gala

Princess Charlene of Monaco attended the 2017 Princess Grace Awards Gala at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Wednesday (October 25) in Beverly Hills, California.

I love the autumnal aura surrounding this raspberry Ralph Lauren Collection Pre-Fall 2017 gown.

Elegance and glamour are two things we always expect from Princess Charlene, both of which she delivers on this occasion.

Often Charlene’s shoulders are focused on, but on this occasion the off-the-shoulder element creates a nice balance.

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Atelier Versace – ‘Monte-Carlo Gala For The Global Ocean’

Princess Charlene of Monaco has been making the rounds at Milan Fashion Week, but on Thursday (September 28), she was back in Monte Carlo, Monaco for the inaugural ‘Monte-Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean’ which honoured Leonardo DiCaprio.

With another example of infinitely graceful elegance, she donned a sweeping Atelier Versace gown.

The metallic embroidery of the bodice provided just the right nod to edgy elegance, with her cropped, platinum pixie ensuring a sense of cool modernity.

I love how effortlessly she wears this look, not complicating it by a multitude of jewels or dramatic makeup.


Front Row @ Giorgio Armani Spring 2018

The front row of the Giorgio Armani Spring 2018 show on Friday (September 22) during Milan Fashion Week paid homage to the designer’s impeccable tailoring with suiting reigning supreme.

Amber Valletta: The model demonstrated suiting needn’t be stuffy with a grey one-button jacket and coordinating wide-leg trousers. Round-toe shoes echoed the relaxed fit of the grey suit. Although, I find myself missing a pointed-toe.

Princess Charlene of Monaco: Making another appearance at Milan Fashion Week, the Princess exuded elegance in shades of grey. A wrap top and cuffed trousers were topped with a dove grey trench. Warm grey accessories dabbled with different textures completed the outfit. It’s a shame about the creases on the pants, because this is neutrals and layering at their best.

Cate Blanchett:
The longtime Giorgio Armani fan and campaign star brought some colour to the FROW with her burgundy and white dogstooth pantsuit and coordinating checkerboard shirt. There are so many striking elements in the ensemble from the jacket’s structured shoulders to the witch-y boots, but my eyes are drawn to the quirky round glasses with statement brow bar.

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.
