Charlotte Casiraghi In Chanel Couture – 2012 Monaco Rose Ball

Charlotte Casiraghi attended the 2012 Monaco Rose Ball in Monte Carlo on Saturday night.

The photos from this event weren’t great, but the photographer can’t be blamed for how bad this Chanel Spring 2012 Couture dress looks on Charlotte.

It’s unflattering in every imaginable way as it appears poorly thought out, poorly made and poor constructed.

I didn’t like the dress on the runway, but even with Charlotte’s minor modifications she couldn’t save this look from making her look boxy.

As the party got going, Charlotte removed the top part of the dress which improved the look somewhat, but it is still the worst dress I have seen on the red carpet this year.

And to think women pay hundreds of thousands of pounds/euros/dollars to look this bad.

Who Wore Giambattista Valli Couture Better? Charlotte Casiraghi or Sarah Jessica Parker

It looks like I was wrong as Charlotte Casiraghi was actually the first person to wear a look from the Giambattista Valli Fall 2011 Couture collection.

The Princess wore her blue strapless bustier gown and cape whilst attending the official dinner and firework celebrations after the religious ceremony for the Royal Wedding of Prince Albert II of Monaco and Princess Charlene of Monaco last month.

Her gown was accented with a jeweled belt which we didn’t see on the runway when the show was presented a few days after the wedding ceremony.

SJP wore the same dress in red tonight on the red carpet for the “I Don’t Know How She Does It” Moscow Film Presentation with simple gold Fred Leighton jewels.

I want to give this to SJP as she showcased this gown so perfectly tonight, but I love the addition of the jeweled belt and the soft blue colour so Charlotte wins for me.

Who Wore Chanel Better? Diane Kruger or Charlotte Casiraghi

Diane Kruger continued her winning fashion streak when she chose to wear this beautiful Chanel Spring 2011 Couture dress to attend the Sidaction Gala Dinner in Paris back in January.

The pretty pink off-the-shoulder dress which features a tiered skirt, pearl details and a black bow accent was snapped up by Diane just days after the dress had been presented.

Diane accessorized this look perfectly with an embellished black clutch, black peep-toe heels and diamond and black resin bracelets.

The beautiful actress styled her hair in a chic up-do and wore smoky eyeshadow.

Charlotte Casiraghi wore the same dress to attend the Royal wedding of her uncle Prince Albert earlier this month.

Charlotte styled the look similar to Diane, opting for black accessories including a dainty clutch and strappy YSL sandals.

She wore her hair in a twisted bun and added an intricate headband which has a black veil attached to it.

Charlotte definitely looks pretty but I’m not a fan of her shoe choice or the veil.

It’s never easy to compete with Diane, but once again she wins for me because I love how the dress fits her body plus I prefer her accessories.

Diane’s confidence and elegance are just too hard to compete with.

Monaco Royal Wedding Guests

Naomi Campbell wore a one shoulder Alexander McQueen ombre floral embroidered dress to the Royal Wedding of Prince Albert II of Monaco and Princess Charlene of Monaco at the Prince’s Palace of Monaco.

She accessorized with an matching fringed shawl, an Alexander McQueen skull clutch and a peach coloured fascinator.

I was starting to tire of seeing fascinators as we’ve had an overload of them since the British royal wedding, but I love how this one complements the floral embroidered and the bottom half of her McQueen gown.

Charlotte Casiraghi In Gucci – “Il Mondo Vi Appartiene” Dinner

I’m going to be very honest and say that I’ve never quite got the fascination with Charlotte Casiraghi.

Her Gucci front knot dress from the Spring 2011 collection which she wore to the Il Mondo Vi Appartiene’ Dinner in Venice Italy yesterday evening does nothing to change my mind.

Clothes always seem to wear her and I would even go one step further to say that she doesn’t appear to be that interested in fashion.

This Gucci colour-block look with a gold obi belt makes her shoulders appear very broad.

Charlene Wittstock has broad shoulders, but it’s never an issue because she carries herself so well.

I’m wanting Jennifer Lopez, Zoe Saldana, Gemma Arterton, Olivia Wilde or Blake Lively to save this look for me because Charlotte fails to excite me in this look.
