Princess Charlene Style Steal of the Day: Akris

This Akris jacket is rather special, Princess Charlene wore more than once to important occasions. The first important one was in 2012 to the opening of Alain Ducasse's restaurant, Louis XV.

Pauline Ducruet Launches Own Fashion Brand

Followers of Pauline Ducruet on Instagram may have seen this post






The daughter of Princess Stephanie of Monaco with her friend Maria Zarco have launched their own fashion brand, Altered. Only a few of their designs have been seen, but it seems that their designs are young and modern. Here Pauline is seen modeling one the designs.





It's unlikely that any royal lady will be seen in their designs except for Pauline herself and her sister, Camille. But it's really nice to see that Pauline, the New York fashion student is taking such an entrepreneurial step!

Do you like their designs so far?

Princess Charlene Wears Akris to the UEFA Champions League

A couple of days ago the Princely Couple attended the UEFA semi-finals match between Monaco FC and Juventus FC at the Louis II Stadium.

Princess Charlene Black Akris Cape


Turning out in a typical Charlene look, the Princess Charlene of Monaco stayed true to her fashion sense in a black Akris cape and black pants. The cape is no longer for purchase but I believe it's the same as the one worn by A Girl in Boston in the picture below.

Black Akris Cape

I like the outfit, but I'm very confused by Charlene's cape, especially that she has an almost identical Akris cape that she has worn twice in 2013. My theory is that her closet is now so big that she forgot the clothes she already has and just buys new ones!

Princess Charlene's style

Contrary to what several websites are saying, Princess Charlene was not wearing an Alhambra bracelet. Char wore a Vintage Alhambra Bracelet Watch. If you look at the closeup, you will see the dials. 
Princess Charlene Van Cleef and Arpels Watch

The Van Cleef and Arpels creation is made of white gold and mother of pearls with 8 motifs. An Alhambra watch would set you back a little over 15,000$!

What do you think of this multiple-cape-from-the-same-designer situation?

Royal Fashion Face-off: Queen Rania VS. Viola Davis in Fendi

Last month, Queen Rania visited the Phi Science Institute in Amman. The Queen of Jordan wore a Fendi virgin wool coat in brown with purple lining and paired it with Etro pants and an Alexander Wang shirt. Jimmy choo pumps were the finishing touch to the look.


In September, the second episode of Season 2 of How to Get Away With Murder aired and Viola Davis AKA Annalise Keating was wearing the same coat in a few scenes. Annalise's version was paired with a blue dress and black accessories.


I honestly prefer Queen Rania's styling. It looks super comfortable yet very sophisticated with how the belt is tied and just a hint of purple showing. But it's time for you to decide....

Princess Charlene Dazzles in Cartier Diamond Earrings

On Valentine's Day, The Prince and Princess of Monaco attended The Laureus World Awards in Carolina Herrera. But the highlight of the outfit for me was not the dress, it was the earrings.

The pearl and diamond earrings are vintage Cartier and were worn by Debra Messing to the Emmy's in 2007.

The earrings (or similar ones) were auctioned off by Christie's in June 2016 and were sold for over $62,000.
The earrings were described on Christie's website as "of tapering form, each pavé-set brilliant-cut diamond panel with pierced detailing and single cultured pearl accent, suspending a diamond-set fringe, post and clip fittings, 11.1cm, with French assay marks for gold, in Cartier case."

Another celebrity has worn these earrings a couple of days ago. But you'll have to go to the Instagram page to find out who that is 😛

Princess Charlene in Carolina Herrera for the 2017 Laureus Awards

Earlier tonight Prince Albert and Princess Charlene attended the 2017 Laureus Awards at the Salle des Etoiles in Monaco. The Laureus World Sports Awards is "held annually, celebrating the most remarkable men and women from the world of sport along with their achievements from the previous calendar year." You might remember Charlene had a recorded segment at the ceremony last year.


The outfit:

Princess Charlene wear red Carolina Herrera ball gown

For this year's ceremony, The Princess of Monaco donned a red silk faille Carolina Herrera gown. The off the shoulder frock has straps, a V-neckline and a ball skirt.

The colour is excellent for an event that falls on Valentine's Day (Happy Valentine's Day, BTW ❤️️). But Something about the bodice and the straps make me feel uneasy. 

The skirt is such an unusual silhouette from Charlene though and I absolutely love it!

Charlene paired her red number with a silver pair of Romy pumps by Jimmy Choo which you can buy from HERE.

I am waiting for better photos of the jewelry to ID it. Montblanc is a sponsor, so maybe that or maybe she is debuting her newly acquired birthday present ;)

Who Wore Dior Better; Princess Charlene or Donna Paulsen?

The blue Dior dress we discussed a few days ago seems to have been popular. Princess Charlene wore the frock on June 16th, 2015.

Sarah Rafferty, as Donna Paulsen, wore the sleeveless, half-peplum dress on a Suits episode that aired on July 8th the same year. Donna donned the same number once more for the first episode of season 6 of the blockbuster TV show.


Now that you've seen them both it's time to decide....

Princess Charlene Wears Carolina Herrera to the World Rugby Awards 2016

One Sunday, The Princess of Monaco attended the World Rugby Awards in London. During the ceremony, Princess Charlene announced that she is bringing the Awards which have been held since 2001 to Monaco for at least two years. So now we can put on our calendar a black tie event on November besides the Fete Nationale *clapping*!

What Charlene Wore

for the event, La Princesse de Monaco donned a red organza gown by Carolina Herrera. I love how the pleats and tiers make it very elegant yet the buttons give it a casual look. The bow belt on the side is perfection as well. The dress is available on Farfetch for $5,990. I think Carolina Herrera and Charlene make for a good sartorial combination.

We don't have clear photos yet to know for sure what jewelry she wore, but the earrings look like repeated Graff and I guess the necklace is, too.

Are you as happy as I am to see Charlene wearing Carolina Herrera again?

Princess Charlene in Dior to Meet Monaco's Athletes

Prince Albert and Princess Charlene met with the athletes who are to represent Monaco at the Olympics this year in Brazil.

For the occasion, the Princess of Monaco donned a dark navy Dior jumpsuit that from a first glance might fool you for a dress.

Charlene paired her extraordinary jumpsuit with the Dior asymmetrical d'orsay pumps she wore for her twins' baptism in 2015. The off-white color might seem odd until you see this.

An even more odd white insert, there's also a pocket there.

Beside her everyday pearl earrings, Charlene de Monaco wore a traditional South African Zulu beaded necklace. This kind of necklaces is usually worn in weddings but in Char's case it was worn to add a much needed pop of color and a reminder of her heritage, well played!



You can buy a similar necklace for 65 Rand (about 5 dollars) from earthafricacurio.com

Princess Charlene Christens the Seven Sear Explorer in Hervé Léger

"I bless this ship, Seven Seas Explorer, and all who sail on her," is what Princess Charlene said when she christened the most luxurious ship ever built. Charlene is the godmother of the ship that is planned to set sail on July 30th.




For the occasion, the Princess of Monaco chose the Sophia Metallic Foil Mermaid Gown from Hervé Léger. While the designer is not a usual choice for her, the frock is definitely true to Princess Charlene's style. And my I say it fits her like a glove!



The dress is currently on sale at Net-a-porter for $716, you can buy it from HERE.



Charlene paired the figure-hugging dress with Manolo Blahnik sandals and a repeated silver clutch, my memory does not serve me as to whether the clutch is Dior or Chanel, I'm leaning towards Dior, though.




I have been waiting for better pics to be able to identify the jewelry worn by the Princess of Monaco, but apparently this is not going to happen. The bracelet is giving me serious Cartier vibes anyway.


I can't help but compare this number to the last (and first) Hervé Léger dress Charlene wore which was in 2010 to the Russian Night Gala in Cannes, 6 years can do wonders really!

Princess Charlene Wears Celine to the Mare Nostrum 2016

Firstly, I would like to apologize for disappearing for all those months, work and school haven't really made it easy to have time to post. But I'm back covering Princess Charlene's fashion.


Since you've all seen Charlene's latest outfits (and know who designed them), we'll skip them for now and take a look at this outfit she wore earlier this month to the Mare Nostrum.

Princess Charlene Celine Mare Nostrum



The Princess of Monaco wore a Celine resort 2016 shirt blouse with a waistband that you can shop on Italist for 401 euros.

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.

Princess Charlene Fashion Dior Kids

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.

Dior Shoes

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.

Princess Charlene Dior dress 2015

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.

Princess Charlene and Daniela Schadt Germany 2012

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 ;)
