Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Celebrities, editors, designers and even royalty were seated in the front row of the Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture presentation held in Paris, France, this afternoon.

Mélanie Laurent: The French actress was my favourite from all the attendees at this event. I’m most in love with the printed bell-shaped tiered skirt which she styled with the same satin blush sleeveless top from the runway. I’m not missing the necklace, but I would’ve preferred it had she tied back her beachy wavy locks.

Princess Charlene of Monaco: Dressed in head-to-toe pink Dior, the Princess looked uber chic even though I wish she opted for a belt.

Anna Dello Russo: The editor-at-large for Vogue Nippon has always been fearless when it comes to fashion, but I’ve never seen her show off so much skin. Dressed in a hot-pink Fausto Puglisi Spring 2012 dress with cut-out details and an elaborate gold-embroidered detail, the look is styled with all pink accessories including a Valentino clutch and YSL shoes. TMI or fearless fashionista?

Princess Charlene of Monaco was in Bendigo, Australia, this weekend to open the Grace Kelly: Style Icon exhibition, which was held in the Bendigo Art Gallery during the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.

She wore a Johanna Johnson custom dress.

The blush-hued dress with a low-cut back and beaded Swarovski crystal-embellished trims is beautiful, but I can’t help feeling like embellishments are a tad OTT for a daytime event.

Also, for one so broad shouldered, should Charlene really be wearing a dress which does nothing but accentuate them?

This look leaves me with so many questions.

What do you think?

Silver Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals completed her look.

Princess Charlene of Monaco and Prince Albert II of Monaco attended the 2012 Oscars, held in LA yesterday evening.

The Princess wore an Akris couture gown created by designer Albert Kriemler.

Her white lace stripe mock neck sleeveless gown with a keyhole back was teamed with a matching mini Akris ‘Allegra’ bag.

Her appearance at the 2012 Oscars marks the first time a member of Monaco’s royal family has attended the event since Grace Kelly won her Oscar in 1955 for best actress.

After giving birth to her first child, Marion Cotillard made a return to the red carpet for the New York premiere of her hit movie, ‘Contagion’.

The face of ‘Lady Dior’ was of course wearing a look from the French brand, donning a black lace dress with a nude underlay from the Fall 2011 collection.

She styled her hair in a braided updo and kept her hair and makeup simple.

Princess Charlene of Monaco attended the Princess Grace Foundation Annual Gala in New York City earlier this month wearing the same dress.

This is the second princess we’ve had on a WWIB? poll in so many weeks. It’s ironic how both were the second person to wear the look after an actress.

Princess Charlene also kept her look simple, styling her hair into a wavy updo.

I love Princess Charlene’s sophisticated style, but this look fell flat on this occasion so Marion wins by default.

Princess Charlene of Monaco was joined by her husband, the Prince of Monaco, as they attended the Princess Grace Foundation Annual Gala which was held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City yesterday evening.

Princess Charlene wore a Christian Dior Fall 2011 black lace embroidered gown which she teamed with a black mink Dior clutch.

Even with the embroidered details, I still find myself not liking this gown.

Unlike some of you who have issues with her broad shoulders, my issue is that the gown is overly fussy, especially on the skirt.

I would’ve preferred the Princess to wear something more classic.

Diamond drop earrings and a side-swept updo completed her look.

Princess Charlene and Prince Albert II of Monaco hosted the 63rd Red Cross Ball Gala at their Monte Carlo home on Friday night.

The Princess provides me with some much needed glamour after a very lackluster Teen Choice Awards, wearing an Akris strapless gown.

Her fuchsia silk strapless gown with fishtail hem and fitted bodice of silk chiffon pleated appliqué was teamed with a matching Akris Anouk clutch.

A Van Cleef & Arpels necklace (a gift from her husband) and a chic chignon completed her look.

The dress is gorgeous, the colour is divine on her, but whoever is did her ghostly make-up needs to be sacked immediately.
