Princess Charlene wore half of the Akris Spring/Summer 2012 collection, she attended the show in Paris with her mum shortly after her wedding, and the collection itself was inspired by Monte Carlo.

The dress was shown on the runway in forest green but Charlene had it made for her in orangey brown, why? Don't ask me! The dress is now on sale on the The Real Real for $87, this is less than 10% of its original retail value. Quite a steal, no?

I honestly much rather the runway version to Charlene's, that green is very cheerful. An important thing when the dress is loose-fitted, don't you think? You can buy the dress from HERE.

This dress was one of many Roland Mouret creations the Princesse de Monaco has worn in the past two years and one of my favorite on her (mainly because of the bright, summery colour)

2009 was the last year Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie joined Prince Albert at the annual Arbre de Noel for Monegasque children at the Princely Palace without Princess Charlene.

Vogue Arabia Unites Queen Nazli's Great Granddaughter with the Most Famous Necklace in the world!

In the October 2017 issue, Vogue Arabia has a very unique and moving feature. Amina El Demirdash, one of Egypt's brightest artists and the granddaughter of Princess Faika graced the pages of Vogue in a black peplum Elie Saab jumpsuit and, most importantly, Queen Nazli's Van Cleef and Arpels necklace.

Queen Nazli's grand daughter wears Van Cleef and Arpels necklace.

Amina was photographed by Julian Torres -who has photographed many celebrities including Catherine Deneuve- at the Hôtel de Crillon in Paris. The necklace is now a part of Van Cleef and Arpels' estate collection along with several other pieces from the Egyptian royal family. The feature included a tribute by Amina to her ancestors, especially her great-aunt Princess Fawzia who passed away in 2013. In fact, Fawzia's wedding was the reason her mother Queen Nazli commissioned this necklace along with its matching tiara.

The necklace was sold in the renowned Sotheby's sale of Queen Nazli's jewelry in New York to an unknown buyer after she had gone bankrupt. The necklace resurfaced in 2015 after almost four decades in the dark at yet another Sotheby auction. The much-publicised auction saw the necklace being sold for 4,282,000 USD. Luckily the buyer was Van Cleef and Arpels which has featured the magnificent work of art in several exhibitions since acquiring it.

The necklace compromises of around 600 diamonds weighing almost 300 carats. The last known time Queen Nazli wore this parure was to her youngest daughter's, Fathia, wedding in April 1950. Ironically, this wedding would eventually lead to Queen Nazli's bankruptcy within two decades. The tiara has not been seen ever since the 1975 sale and whether it is still intact is unknown.

El Demirdash admitted that the life of her family before the revolution was "something of a jigsaw puzzle". Her grandmother, Princess Faika married Fuad Sadek who upon their marriage received the title Bey (Equivalent to Earl in England) in a small ceremony at Abdeen Palace in 1950. Over 65 years later, Amina herself got married in a more lavish ceremony in Italy.

Amina, despite being at the heart of the art scene in Egypt, has rarely ever mentioned being a descendant of the former royal family. Her aristocratic beauty and serenity do serve as a reminder of the family that captivated the attention of the world with its members' legendary beauty. Her artistic gift echoes her great uncle's wife's (Queen Farida) talent as a painter and Farida's uncle the world-renowned Mahmoud Sa'id whose paintings have always captured her eyes. In one of the pictures of the feature, Amina wears Queen Nazli's necklace with a simple Mugler dress and an Alexandre Vauthier blazer. A way that her great-grandmother would have never imagined her necklace to be worn. Breathing youthfulness into an almost century-old necklace while breathing in the legacy of a family that will not be forgotten anytime soon!

Steal Princess Charlene's Style: Dior Coat to Meet the Pope

In January 2013, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene traveled to the Vatican for an audience with Pope Benedict XVI. For her first meeting with a pope, Charlene was the first Monegasque Princess to be granted the Privilège du Blanc; the privilege to wear white when meeting the pope.


Princess Charlene's Dior cream lace and knitwear coat has recently resurfaced on Ebay and is offered for US $808.89.



The coat is made cotton, polyester, and viscose with a round neck and a belt and you can buy it from HERE.

This coat was the highlight of a look that saw a milestone in Charlene's tenure as the princess consort of Monaco and I love the idea that while Charlene's is probably hidden at the back of her closet, someone will pull off this look for a different milestone in their life!

Princess Charlene Wears Atelier Versace to the Monte-Carlo Gala For The Global Ocean

Last night the Prince and Princess of Monaco attended the Inaugural Monte-Carlo Gala For The Global Ocean which is Presided by Prince Albert and hosted by Global Fundraising Chairman Milutin Gatsby, the inaugural “Monte Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean” honored Leonardo DiCaprio for his outstanding actions for the preservation of our Planet. You may remember that Prince Albert and Princess Charlene (in Armani Privé) attended one of Leonardo's gala's last year.


For the event, Her Serene Highness wore a strapless black gown by Atelier Versace (Confirmed by the Palace).


While the frock was made especially for the princess, the skirt portion complete with a very high slit hidden by one layer of chiffon looks a little similar to this look from the Fall 2017 collection.


The intricate embroidery on the bodice has not been seen in any collection because is out of this world!

The only thing I don't understand is why pair a dress with GOLD details with the SILVER sandals that seemed to be killing your feet a few days earlier at the Versace fashion show in Milan, but this look is by far Charlene's best in so long so I'm not going to complain. Not even about her wearing only one of her Cartier stud earrings!

UPDATE:

In the picture below, you can see that Char's dress also has silver embroidery on the bodice, which may explain the choice of silver shoes... So no complaints from me!





What a difference a few days make!

Princess Charlene Takes Milan by Storm

After years of shying away from fashion shows, the Princess of Monaco finally reemerged to Milan Fashion Week starting with Armani.


For the star-studded fashion show (Cate Blanchett was there among others), the Princess donned a jumpsuit based on one of the Pre-Fall 2017 looks and a stone-colored trench coat.


Charlene accessorized with python print flats and an Ecurie bag which you can buy in black for USD $1,935 HERE.


The next stop for the mother of twins was at the Versace show. Donatella's tribute to her brother who passed away 20 years ago.


For the historic show, Her Serene Highness, the Princess of Monaco went all out in one of her edgiest looks ever. The metallic dress is almost too risqué with the cutouts that go all the way to South Africa. The dress is a true tribute to Gianni and everything he stood for. And while it's rather flashy bordering on trashy even, if there is any royal who can pull it off it's our Char!



Charlene paired the dress with a black biker jacket which is actually from the men's collection and you can buy it for $5,500 on Farfetch.


We'll soon take a look at designer creations for next spring and imagine which royal will wear what!

Do you think Charlene's cutout dress was edgy and fierce or just a little too much?

Princess Charlene at The 2017 Red Cross Gala: The Jewelry

You know all about Princess Charlene Atelier Versace jumpsuit that she wore to the Red Cross Gala last month.

A post shared by VERSACE (@versace_official) on


What you may not know is what jewelry the Princess of Monaco has worn.

Charlene de Monaco chose a pair of 1895 earrings from Cartier. The enormous stud earrings feature a brilliant diamond that's about carats. The price of these earrings is only available upon request!













These earrings are different from the 1895 radiant cut stud earrings that the Charlene wore to the Red Cross Ball in 2015.


Keeping everything else minimal, the Repossi engagement ring made a rather rare appearance.

While I look forward to a dose of jewelry every year at the Red Cross Gala, I can't imagine the jumpsuit with any more jewelry... Do you?
