Princess Charlene in Dior for the Cover of Paris Match

This week's Paris Match has a feature on Prince Albert's environmental activities with the Prince, the Princess and the Princely Twins of Monaco on the cover. The photo was taken at the Musée Océanographique de Monaco.

The Princess of Monaco repeated the cream culottes she wore earlier this summer for the Women in Leadership Summit with new pink beige top and cardigan. I'm not sure who made any of these three pieces but the culottes were thought to be by Akris back when she first wore them.

Charlene's heels however are absolutely Dior. You might remember these satin pumps from the visit of the president on Montenegro to Monaco in May 2014. The suede version of these perspex-heel pumps is still available on the Dior website in black and suede for £550, you can buy your pair from HERE.

I really love the fact that the princely twins have already been to the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco, it's just so adorable. As for their outfits, I think it's safe to assume that they were in Baby Dior, don't you think?

Princess Charlene's Wears Dior to Gareth Wittstock's Wedding

Earlier this month, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene attended the wedding of Charlene's younger brother, Gareth Wittstock to his longtime girlfriend, Roisin Galvin who wore a beautiful Pronovias gown.

Princess Charlene in Dior Gareth Wittstock Wedding 2015 Princess Charlene wore a modified version of a dress that's been seen twice before.

The gown first appeared (with Graff waterfall earrings) in 2011 at Yorkshire Variety Club's Golden Jubilee Ball (left) then in Germany in 2012 for an official dinner hosted by president Joachim Glauck. The dress was identified in 2012 as Dior and so was the dove grey clutch Charlene carried that night.

There is that particular photo in Germany in which the partner of the president, Daniela Schadt steps on the train of Charlene's gown, perhaps that's why the Princess of Monaco decided to get the frock reworked?

Princess Charlene Graff Diamonds necklace

Back to the wedding: Charlene wore silver Chaos Cuff sandals by Manolo Blahnik which you can buy from HERE. The earrings and necklace were confirmed to be Graff Diamonds, though no further information or photos of them were provided and, of course, whether they're a a loan or the property of the princess. But honestly all I care about is that Charlene has provided so much bling in one night!

Give me the gown version of this number, the necklace, the earrings and a new diamond tiara and you'll have me swearing that I've died and gone to heaven. This is not the first Dior dress that Charlene has played with. Stay tuned to know about the other one ;)

On top of it, Charlene wore a strapless coverup that she let fall while surfing. A straw hat and a pair of Dior So Real sunglasses completed the beach-perfect look.

Dress of the Day: CAPUCCI Dress

I ran into this dress by Capucci on Luisa Via Roma a few days ago and I haven't closed the tab on my browser since. The array of colours is just too beautiful!


This is a one of a kind overlapping plissé organza mini dress. Cinzia Minghetti, Capucci's designer, designed a small collection exclusively for Luisa Via Roma with only one piece of each model which explains the €6470 price tag!

Who Wore Haider Ackerman Better: Princess Charlene or Tilda Swinton?

Back in July, both the Princess of Monaco and Tilda Swinton wore the same Haider Ackerman jumpsuit.

Princess Charlene wore this jumpsuit to pose for Paris Match while Tilda wore it to the New York premiere of Trainwreck.

Since the photo of Princess Charlene is clearly edited, I can't make a decision as to whom I prefer in this lovely jumpsuit. So the decision is all yours this time, too.

Princess Charlene in Haider Ackerman for Paris Match

Back in July, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene were featured on Paris Match to mark his 10th jubilee.

The jumpsuit comes from the Fall 2015 collection and is now available on Net-A-Porter for £1,519.

Who Wore Valentino Better, Princess Charlene or Queen Maxima?

Another fashion face-off for the red Valentino jumpsuit Princess Charlene wore for the Red Cross Ball last month.
Queen Maxima Princess Charlene Valentino red jumpsuit
This time it's Queen Maxima who donned the frock to attend the opening of the new season of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam.

Valentino red jumpsuit

I have to hand it to Charlene this time, too. The jumpsuit needed simple earrings and accessories in a different colour, that Char delivered. But it's the bow that sells this outfit on Charlene to me. Maxima on the other hand chose matchy-matchy shoes and clutch and dangling (man are they gorgeous!) earrings that looked rather messy with her hair. But still, the choice is yours. So do tell me...

Shoe Saturday: Salvatore Ferragamo Sculptural Heel Sandals

I'm totally in love with this pair of sandals from Salvatore Ferragamo.
Salvatore Ferragamo black gold and silver Heel Sandals
They're just perfect for a night out this fall. They're screaming Crown Princess Victoria to me, but they would turn any of Charlene's all-black frocks into an interesting, avant-garde ensemble.They're available on Salvatore Ferragamo website for $1,950.

Would you wear them?

Princess Charlene in Christian Dior Couture for the Princess Grace Awards 2015 in Monaco

The spotlight was on Monaco once again this year for an amazing bash at the Palais Princier as the Princess Grace Awards Ceremony was held there for the first time ever (at the request of the Princess of Monaco).

Prince Albert and Princess Charlene at Princess Grace Awards 2015

Robert Redford, the legendary actor attended the ceremony to receive an award from the Princely couple.

Princess Charlene in Dior at Princess Grace Awards 2015

For the grand occasion, Princess Charlene brought back the glamor to Monaco with this beaded Christian Dior Fall 2015 Couture gown. All those red hearts/flowers are actually tiny beads and sequins resting on a black bed of (guess what) beads.

The gown wasn't changed much for Charlene from the runway, just the neckline didn't have that third opening thingy, and I guess the back is the same. Backless frocks are Charlene's go-to style now.

I find this photo very dramatic, very French-chic, very serene... Now in the jewelry department...

Princess Charlene in Graff diamond and Ruby Earrings

A new pair of earrings for our dear Char. This time from Graff Diamonds. The earrings come from the Bomb collection and contrary to what some websites are saying, they're made of diamonds and rubies (not pink diamonds).

Graff Diamond and Ruby earrings Princess Charlene of Monaco 2015
Given the values of the other Graff earrings Char has worn, these ones would probably cost in the range from $200,00 to $700,00.

Princess Charlene at Princess Grace Awards 2015

This outfit is a total win for me, It's very glamorous, yet true to Charlene's identity and style. May I also point out that each outfit comes with a new piece of jewelry that fits it perfectly? I mean, the other Graff ruby earrings she wore earlier this summer wouldn't have achieved that look with this gown. Thumbs up for Char all the way!

Do you like this look as much as I do?

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better, Princess Stephanie or Princess Iman?

Princess Iman of Jordan has been stepping out to the limelight recently, accompanying her mum, Queen Rania, to several events. One of the latest ones is the MEDEF Summer University Conference in Paris. Queen Rania was dressed in a Givenchy dress, Louis Vuitton bag and Dior earrings and gave a speech.

Princess Iman wore a version of the Contrast Corset 1/2 Circle dress by Alexander McQueen, a dress that we've previously seen on Princess Stephanie of Monaco.

Princess Stephanie paired her dress with a Balenciaga Mini City bag and flats. Iman on the other hand opted for a cardigan (understandable since the dress is sleeveless), a beige clutch and a pair of Sergio Rossi Puzzle Caged sandals that I'm sure most girls would die for.

I really like Iman's outfit, it's classy and appropriate for an Arabian Princess, I think I'll have another royal to put on the radar. But I also like how Stephanie looks in the dress (I choose to ignore the fact that it's a tad too short), I mean this is one of Stephanie's best. Plus, blue is one of my two favorite colors (you guess the other one!).

So I'm leaving in this your hands to decide...

Dress of the Day: Shay's Couture

A few months back, I attended Cairo Couture Collections, the fashion event (organized by Fashion Zone) that included so many of Egypt's and MENA's up and coming fashion designers. Now, months later, I'm still enchanted by the beauty of this wedding gown from Shay's Couture.

Simple design? Yes, but the dress is so majestic, so light and breezy it felt like a cloud of grace. I keep on imagining it in powder pink worn by Princess Victoria for the Nobel Prize.

It's dresses like this that make me really excited for season two of Cairo Couture Collections in October.

Do you like this dress as much as I do?

Who Wore Valentino Better, Princess Charlene or Julia Roberts?

Who doesn't like a fashion face-off? This time it's between the Princess of Monaco and the legendary, Julia Robets. Julia has worn the jumpsuit first in 2014 to the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Charlene wore it last month to the Red Cross Ball in Monaco.

I really like how Julia paired it with the black clutch and wavy tresses, but I have to hand it to Charlene here for turning the scarf into an ultra-feminine bow on the shoulder, the better fit and the huge Cartier cuff, for sure. But now it's time for your opinion!

Princess Charlene Wears Cartier for the Red Cross Ball 2015

You might remember the red Valentino jumpsuit Princess Charlene wore last month to the Red Cross Ball in Monaco. The Princess of Monaco was also adorned with a new pair of stud earrings and a bracelet.

And while I couldn't identify the earrings, the diamond bracelet is from Cartier.

Cartier Maillon Panthère cuff bracelet

The cuff bracelet comes from the Maillon Panthère collection which is named after the Panthère jewels, Cartier's icon. It's made of 18K pink gold and 1,302 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 30.28 carats.

 Maillon Panthère cuff bracelet Princess Charlene

Princess Charlene seems to be growing fond of Cartier as she sported her diamond and pearl earrings more than once this summer, but it's no surprise really since even her wedding band is Cartier.

This diamond beauty costs $236,000, whether it's a loan or a new addition to her collection is something for us to debate here in comments!

Beatrice Borromeo in Valentino Couture Wedding Dress

Wedding bells were ringing yesterday in Monaco for Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo. The couple that has been dating since May 2008 announced their engagement last March and are to have a religious ceremony next week in the Borromean Islands which, as the name suggests, are owned by Beatrice's family.

A photo posted by Valentino (@maisonvalentino) on

For the occasion, the bride chose a Valentino Haute Couture wedding gown designed by Creative Directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli (Unlike Princess Madeleine's wedding dress that was designed by Mr. Valentino himself).

Beatrice Borromeo wedding dress

Beatrice Borromeo's wedding dress is made in pale pink and gold lace silk chiffon. As hard to get as photos from the wedding are, the royal wedding doesn't seem to have been so private after all as Monaco Matin has photos from the bash in today's issue, with one on the cover.

Guests of the wedding include all of the Grimadli clan, with Prince Albert and Princess Charlene in the lead. So it wouldn't be too hard to believe that Princess Charlene wore Valentino for the Red Cross Ball last night as a compliment to the bride's Italian roots. Especially since Beatrice's uncle, Count Matteo Marzotto, is the former president and director of the Valentino fashion house.

From what I can see, I really like this dress, it's elegant and effortless and the pink works like magic on Beatrice's complexion. I also love the purple flowers in her wavy hair and natural makeup.

Beatrice had another Valentino Haute Couture wedding gown for the night gala, this time a sleeveless ball gown with hand-painted blue parts all over it. You can see it in this video

So what do you think of the wedding dress of Beatrice Borromeo?

Princess Charlene in Valentino for the Red Cross Ball 2015

After attending the civil wedding of Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene headed to the Salle des Étoiles in Monte Carlo for the 2015 Red Cross Ball.

Princess Charlene Valentino

We still don't have any pictures from the wedding, so we know nothing about Beatrice's outfit so far. But luckily, we have photos of Charlene from La Bal de Croix Rouge and I could identify her ensemble shortly!

The Princess of Monaco chose a red Valentino jumpsuit from the Resort 2015 collection. The jumpsuit is made of silk crepe and features wide-legged trousers and a one-shoulder cut.

The frock comes with a scarf that Charlene has tactfully made into a bow and placed it on the shoulder (Which made me think the whole thing was Lanvin).

Colour? Check. New Designer? Check. Edginess? Check. BLNG? Check (We will discuss Charlene's sandals, new bracelet and earrings later).

Are you as happy to see Princess Charlene in Valentino as I am?


Princess Charlene in Akris for a Photoshoot

Earlier this month, The Princely Family of Monaco gave an interview to Hello! and posed for them in the gardens of the palace.

The couple talked about how different the twins are and how fast they're growing.

This is the twins' first ever feature on a magazine. You can also notice that Baby Gabriella is wearing a super cute necklace! #FirstPieceOfJewelry.

In his teeny jeans and sneakers, Prince Jacques was proclaimed as the most active of the twins.

For the photo shoot, Charlene de Monaco wore a white Akris Metallic-Striped Wrap-Front Dress.

The dress is now sold out on most stores but

Princess Charlene in Manolo Blahnik BB pumps.

Adding a bit of interest to the simple frock, Princess Charlene paired it with coral Suede BB Pumps from Manolo Blahnik which you can buy from Barneys for $595.


I think it's perfect for a day in the Princely Gardens (If you're being photographed)

Did the shoes do the trick for you?
