Princess Charlene of Monaco In Akris – Rose Ball 2014

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Akris - Rose Ball 2014

Prince Albert II of Monaco and Princess Charlene of Monaco attended the Rose Ball held at the Sporting Monte-Carlo on Saturday (March 29) in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

The princess wore a look from her favourite designer, Akris, selecting a one-shoulder navy Fall 2014 gown with swirling black accents snaking around her body creating an ‘S’ shape; she styled the gown with dazzling Van Cleef and Arpels ‘Ocean’ drop earrings (a wedding gift from her husband) and black pumps.

Once again, the sheer skirt prevents me from considering this for BDOTW.

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Ralph Lauren – 2013 Princess Grace Awards Gala

Princess Charlene of Monaco In Ralph Lauren - 2013 Princess Grace Awards Gala

Princess Charlene of Monaco continued her current love affair for all things Ralph Lauren at the 2013 Princess Grace Awards Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City yesterday evening.

This time she wore a high-neck dark-green taffeta gown from the Fall 2013 collection which recalls classic Hollywood glamour.

I know many of you are continually baffled by her showcasing her shoulders, but I love her stance that she earned them from her days as a professional swimmer.

It’s not Charlene’s style to opt for too much adornment; here she selects just a diamond-encrusted bracelet, with glossy lips and swept-back tresses completing her look.

Ralph Lauren’s Screening Of Hitchcock’s ‘To Catch A Thief’ Celebrating The Princess Grace Foundation

Ralph Lauren's Screening Of Hitchcock's 'To Catch A Thief' Celebrating The Princess Grace Foundation

Last night, Ralph Lauren hosted a special screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘To Catch A Thief’ at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The event, which was held to celebrate The Princess Grace Foundation, drew a crowd peppered with actresses, models, and one royal daughter-in-law.

Princess Charlene of Monaco: There to represent the Monegasque royal family, Princess Charlene of Monaco stunned in a strapless white jumpsuit by Ralph Lauren. While the structured bodice, skinny waist belt, and wide-leg silhouette gave off a distinct ’70s vibe, her minimalist take elsewhere (accessories, makeup, and slicked-back hair) kept the whole look decidedly polished.

Toni Collette: The Australian actress covered up in a black Ralph Lauren turtleneck dress, which also featured long sleeves and a below-the-knee hemline. Perhaps, to offset the conservative dress choice, she wore black cutout booties and styled it all with a gold, textured Louis Vuitton ‘Limelight’ clutch and mussed-up waves.

Coco Rocha: The model — who also donned Ralph Lauren for the evening’s festivities — went with an outfit straight from the designer’s Fall 2013 runway. The look included a white Victorian ruffle-front and puffed-sleeve blouse, high-waisted black sailor pants, and black pumps.

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.

Who Wore Christan Dior Better…Princess Charlene of Monaco or Jenna Coleman?

Who Wore Christan Dior Better Princess Charlene of Monaco or Jenna Coleman

Princess Charlene of Monaco took her front row seat for the Christian Dior Cruise 2014 presentation in Monaco back in May wearing a strapless navy-and-black striped dress from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection, which she wore with a round-neck black cashmere top to give her more coverage.

Jenna Coleman wore the same dress as part of a trio of Comic-Con looks when she took to the red carpet with her boyfriend Richard Madden for Entertainment Weekly’s annual Comic-Con celebrations.
The petite British star styled her look simply with black pumps and a chain-accented bag.

While I love that Princess Charlene made the look her own, I much prefer this dress as it was intended – strapless – so Jenna wins for me.
