Princess Charlene Of Monaco In Akris – 2012 Oscars

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.

Princess Charlene Monaco In Akris – 63rd Red Cross Ball Gala

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.

Cameron Diaz In Akris – “Bad Teacher” European Promo Tour

Cameron Diaz continued to promote her new, “Bad Teacher” in Europe this weekend.

In London Cameron opted to dress casually for the photocall wearing white J Brand ‘Major’ skinny jeans with a black top, an Ann Taylor gold bracelet and black Casadei pumps.

During the rest of the promo tour she wore Akris exclusively.

For the Berlin photocall Cameron wore an Akris Spring 2011 pale sage silk shirt dress, which she teamed with Sergio Rossi tan sandals and a 3.1 Phillip Lim belt.

At the “Bad Teacher” Germany Premiere, Cameron wore an Akris Pre-Fall 2011 black double-face tuxedo halter jumpsuit with silk-satin lapels.  Her jumper was paired with black satin Casedai pumps.

Her 3rd Akris look of the weekend was worn on the German television program, “Wetten Dass.”

She wore an Akris cotton denim bateau-neck short romper from the Spring 2011 collection with nude pumps.

These looks aren’t anything to get excited about. It’s clear that the objective was for a low key approach to this promo tour.

My favourite is the pale sage skirt dress.

I would’ve liked the tuxedo jumpsuit had Cameron opted for a belt as it appeared on the model to give her look a more definition around the waist.

At the end of the year this will receive the “Most Underwhelming Promo Run of the Year Award.”

Nice, but nothing to write home about.

Rose Byrne’s sold “Bridesmaids” to me; Cameron fails to do the same with “Bad Teacher.”

Charlene Wittstock In Akris – Grand Prix de Monaco

There are very few things that are certain in life. Victoria Beckham is unlikely to smile, Renée Zellweger will always wear Carolina Herrera and the other was Charlene Wittstock would wear Armani, but that appears to have changed.

Charlene Wittstock, fiancée of Albert Prince of Monaco, wore Akris custom ensemble for events surrounding Monaco’s Grand Prix this weekend.

The Princess-in-waiting first Akris look included a black stone appliqué corseted bustier with black silk chiffon pants and the Akris ‘Alice bag’ which she wore to the Amber lounge.

For the Grand Prix qualifying race the following day, she wore a sand Akris bustier with a matching skirt and tan sandals. This was a very refreshing relaxed look for Charlene.

That evening at the JetSet Party on-board a yacht, Charlene opted for an Akris one-shouldered silk jersey dress sans shoes. She accessorized with a pearl necklace and a matching clutch.

A printed voile day dress and Jimmy Choo sandals was the perfect day look for Charlene as she attended Grand Prix on Sunday.

The finale Akris look was a stunning olive paillette gown which she paired with an Akris ‘Ai’ bag.

Charlene sure does know what looks to wear for each occasion.

Each look was presented with the type of effortless elegance we expect from a Princess.

Akris Spring 2011

The Akris Spring 2011 presentation delivered the clean crisp staples we expect from the Swiss fashion house this morning during Paris Fashion Week.

Albert Kriemler made a shirt the most important piece of this collection.

This shirt was paired with shorts, skinny pants or skirts.

We also saw leather gilets, shirt dresses, wide-leg pants, chic jackets, A-line dresses and billowing skirts with asymmetrical hemlines were presented on a mostly neutral colour palette, but we were also treated to a beautiful selection of floral print silks, sand, khaki, electric blue and denim.

The relaxed looks were so simplistic and elegant. This collection for the woman who wants to look chic and sophisticated without revealing too much of herself.

I was slightly confused by the Walter Steiger wedges.

They had a footbed which pointed downwards which I can imagine would be quite difficult to walk in, but the models did so with ease.

The other key accessory were the bags.

We saw the relaxed cervo called the ‘Ai’ bag which was carried like a clutch, and the ‘Anouk’ was a clutch which also had a long shoulder strap wrapped around the models wrist.
