Princess Charlene's Fashion

Prince Jacques Wears Fendi to the Grand Prix

As I promised on Instagram, I got news about Prince Jacques. on May 25th, when Jacques and Gabriella joined their parents to visit the racetrack. We've covered Princess Charlene's outfit before, but since then, I found Jacques' jeans.


The Prince was wearing a Mercedes-AMG Petronas Petronas shirt by Tommy Hilfiger and Ray-Ban sunglasses. The jeans are the most interesting part, though!

Mommy dressed the little prince in Fendi Monster Jeans. Why are they called Monster?

Because the cutest monster EVER is on the back pocket of the pair. You can see it on the Prince in the picture below.

What's not so cute about these jeans? They're $390. Well, they were as they're no longer available. I feel like Princess Charlene enjoys dressing up the twins. Maybe as she's shopping for them, she'll explore some of these designers for herself, too? Can you imagine her in a Fendi dress? ❤️

The Ultimate Guide to Princess Charlene's Grand Prix 2018 Wardrobe!

Last weekend was full of events for the Princely family of Monaco. Princess Charlene Of Monaco, Who had not been seen in a while, was the center of attention once again. Starting on Friday, the Chris And Princess of Monaco Visited The Grand Prix Racetrack where they met Lewis Hamilton (before he called the race "boring") with the twins.


The Princess sported a black leather jacket with a simple white top. Look at Prince Jacques in his cute little Ray Bans!


On her wrist, is a new watch that first appeared at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters in April. Safe to assume it's Rolex, what do you think?

The princess wore Dior sunglasses and her hair was done by Kevin Smeenk.

On the next day, The Prince and Princess of Monaco visited the pit lane. The princess was serving race driver realness with her outfit in a khaki jumpsuit/overall/coverall.


This khaki Ralph Lauren coverall work perfect for the occasion as they look exactly like the coveralls some of the drivers wear. If you're following us on Instagram, You'll find out that this ensemble is inspired by one of the pieces Mr. Ralph wore himself. However, this particular piece comes from the RRL line.



This Ralph Lauren coverall is described on the website as

Relaxed-fitting coverall made from stretch cotton twill. Inspired by 1960s US military flight suit with quarter-top front pockets and asymmetrical patch pockets. Waistband adjusters. Leather zipper pull. Snapped buttons. Drawstring hem.


La Princesse de Monaco paired this coverall with what appeared to be purple sandals. What a closer look, you can see that these sandals are actually multicolored. The colors are black, dust, and pecan with a bit of purple and pink. This little party on HSH's feet comes from Jimmy Choo and is called Holly. Holy, features a towering 5-inch heel and is now sold out.



Once again, the mystery watch made an appearance, Kevin Smeenk did the Princess's hair and THE PRINCESS DID HER OWN MAKEUP!

That same day, Their Serene Highnesses visited the visited the stands of the association of the physically challenged. The Princess repeated the same Diane Von Furstenberg Gwynne jumpsuit she wore last year to the same event. Did she forget or will this be the annual uniform for the visit? 🤔


That night, the Prince and Princess hosted a cocktail reception in the Palace. Unfortunately, the palace did not post any pictures of the Princely Couple... If any guest is reading this, please email me pics :P


The next day was equally busy for CharChar. By 11 am, La Princesse was dressed to the 9s and stepping out of her Lexus on a visit to the maternity wing at the Princess Grace Hospital Centre for Mothers Day. This where the princess herself has given birth to Jacques and Gabriella.


HSH visited the mothers of 8 babies and handed them presents and flowers. One of the mothers took to Instagram to share the present. Anyone know who the sainte on the pendant is?

Right after that, the Princess joined Prince Albert and headed for the F1 finals!


So many things happened this year, Daniel Ricciardo finally won, drank champagne in his shoe, offered the prince and princess a swig from the bottle, they fake-drank, and Vettel sprayed everyone on the podium with his Carbon bottle.


All very unprecedented, all VERY cute and shows how laidback the Grimaldis are!

Charlene's dress got very mixed reviews with people either loving or hating it, no grey area. Honestly, I didn't like the dress until I saw it in action, it's modern and flowed very gracefully as she moved in it. Charlene had never worn a maxi dress to the Grand Prix before, but with the fringed hem, the dress is very practical and looks very comfortable. To sum up, i'm on the Loving-It Team.

The dress is available on Bergdorf Goodman's website for $3,990, you can buy it from HERE.
Akris Anouk Superstripe Patchwork Envelope Shoulder Bag
Charlene paired the dress with the Anouk Superstripe Patchwork Envelope Shoulder Bag which also available on Bergdorf's for $1,390 and you can buy it from HERE.



The shoes are from Dior, but something tells me y'all already knew that. Char has several of those, something tells me the choice of shoes was a last-minute decision, especially since these shoes are from the 2015 collection, the Princess never wore them publicly though.
Dior pumps

You can score similar Dior pumps from Ebay for $375.


Kevin Smeenk was once again to thank for the Princess's hair. Char's makeup skills came in handy again as she did her own makeup. Her earrings are Cartier, and her Repossi engagement ring made a rare appearance.


Then the night came, and it was dark and full of beads (sorry had to!)

The couple looked really dapper, Char donned a black Ralph Lauren Collection gown with a black leather jacket. If you've been following Charlene for years like I have, you'd know this isn't the first time she wear a leather jacket with a Ralph Lauren evening dress. Remember the 2013 Rose Ball? Gotta say, I much prefer it this time around!

The gown comes from the 2017 collection. This is the collection Mr. Ralph showed with his collection of cars, so it's only fitting that Charlene would wear one of the dresses to a car racing event, right?

The simple dress is fully beaded and is not available online, but similar dresses from the collection appeared on Moda Operandi for around $12,000. WOWZA!

The earrings from the day race stayed, Kevin Smeenk put the Princess's hair in a big do (do you notice how lush and healthy her hair is now?) and Eugenie Lurvink did the Princess's makeup.

Guess Princess Charlene's Dress; 2011!

Can you tell who made this gown and where Princess Charlene wore it to?


Answer after the jump


Princess Charlene Wears Stella McCartney to the 2018 Laureus Awards

Prince Albert and Princess Charlene attended the Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco this year. You may remember the Princess's red Carolina Herrera gown and the Cartier earrings that she wore that year.


This year, the princess of Monaco chose to wear a white gown by Stella McCartney. The one-shouldered white gown is called the Kate, most probably because Kate Hudson wore it to the Met Gala in May 2017. Kate was accompanied by the designer, Stella, herself at the event. Now,  the dress is a part of the spring-summer 2018 collection and Princess Charlene is one of the first people to wear it. The figure-hugging dress is made of viscose and spandex and is also available online in red and black. You can now buy this dress on Farfetch for 5065 USD.


The only other time Princess Charlene has worn Stella McCartney in public was in 2013 when she attended the Finales of the Monaco Petanque Masters. 


This year, Princess Charlene chose to wear Graff jewelry. Her diamond earrings are from the Bombé collection. The only available picture of this style is of emerald and diamond version which probably would have also complimented the dress with a pop of color.


As of now, there are no high-quality pictures of the bracelet her Serene Highness wore to confirm that it's from Graff diamonds as well. To me, it looks rather similar to the bracelet Char wore the christening of the Seven Seas Explorer.

Serving as a pop of color, was the striking red lipstick the princess chose to wear to complete her look. A rather new side-swept hairstyle was the finishing touch on this ensemble.
This is Princess Charlene's first red carpet appearance since she turned 40. In fact, it's one of her first appearance of 2018 as she has been keeping a low profile lately. seeing her wearing Stella McCartney and looking this amazing, it makes me both impressed and sad that she hasn't been very active with her engagements for the past year or so. but all in all, this look will definitely be one of my favorites of all time. And they all seemed to be having fun at this awards ceremony!

P.S 1: have you noticed Prince Albert's white sneakers. All men attending the event seem to be wearing some sort of a sports shoe. Inside joke maybe???

P.S 2: You guessed right, we're definitely having a fashion face-off soon!



What about you, did you like Princess Charlene's Stella McCartney dressed as much as I did?

12 times Princess Charlene and Charlize Theron Looked Like Style Twins!


As our Instagram hits the 10,000 followers mark (thanks, everyone!), I looked back at Princess Charlene's style over the years. And man has A LOT changed since the first time I saw a picture of her. The Princess of Monaco has been in the public eye for 12 years (she started dating Prince Albert publicly in 2006). In these years, Miss Wittstock turned Princess Charlene of Monaco dealt with several stylists, hair and makeup artists, designers, colors, and hair-lengths. The only constant, however, is the fact that she has always looked like another South African belle, Charlize Theron. Sometimes more than other of course, that is why today, I wanted to share with you a dozen times Princess Charlene and Charlize Theron looked freakishly like each other's alter ego!

1. Princess Charlene at a Ralph Lauren show in Paris, 2013 VS. Charlize Theron at a Dior screening of Sleepwalking in New York, 2007


Hairstyle, makeup, earrings, and even features are all almost identical. Princess Charlene wins this one with her amazing purple Ralph Lauren Collection gown and historic jewelry, though!


2. When they both swept their short hair to the side and wore bright makeup!



Well, Charlize did it some 5 years earlier, but still!


 3. When they both showed their sassy side with a black headband!


Charlene wore this headband with an Akris gown for the Rose Ball in 2012, Charlize did it for IFP's 21st Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards.


4.  When they styled their hair flat with a black dress



Charlize was subtle with her simple hairstyle and natural makeup at the 2014 Academy Awards in a Dior Couture gown and Harry Winston Jewelry. A year earlier, the Princess of Monaco had the same hairstyle and makeup at the Atelier Versace Spring 2013 show in Paris.

5. On a casual stroll in the US!


Put Charlize's bag with Charlene's outfit and you've got a killer look!


6. When they both had messy curls!


Left: Charlene Wittstock in a red Terrence Bray dress for the Princess Grace Awards in New York in 2008. Right: Charlize Theron in Dior attending the LA Premiere of A Million Ways To Die In The West.

7. When they both had pixie haircuts and somber looks!


Can you spot the Dior Tribal earrings Charlize is wearing? Charlene has them in several variations.


8. When they both went 60's for Dior Haute Couture!


The South African beauties both had similar hairstyles wearing Dior. For Charlene, it was to attend the Dior show in 2013, for Charlize it was the Academy Awards in 2006 in Zac Posen-looking Christian Dior gown!

9. When they both took pixie haircuts to the next level, AGAIN!


At an interview, Princess Charlene revealed that her mother and Charlize's mother used to go to the same hairdresser in Benoni. Now you'd think Charlene and Charlize share the same hairdresser themselves (they actually don't). Charlize debuted this fierce hairstyle in 2013 at the Oscars. Princess Charlene followed her footsteps last year and had this very daring buzzcut to attend the AMREF gala in Monaco.

10. When Charlize Channeled Charlene for the Met Gala.


Charlize's entire look for the 2014 Met Gala (the James Charles exhibition) reminds me of Charlene. The gown black and white, Charlene's favorite colours. It's strapless. And the jewelry is major yet subtle and understated. Even the hairstyle reminds me of Charlene's visit to Germany in 2012.
N.B: Charlene's dress is not Dior, we were wrong all these years!

11. When Charlize stole Charlene's hair (but had way better makeup)


The real question here is: Charlene's Van Cleef and Arpels Ocean Necklace or Charlize's Chopard Garden of Kalahari earrings?

12. When they both wore gold metallic dresses and red lipstick.


Have to get this one to Charlene, though. The Ralph Lauren dress is perfection while Charlize's Tom Ford looks like a gold armor, fabulous wargear if you ask me!


Do you think there's a strong resemblance between the two South African beauties?

Princess Eugenie is engaged; my top tiara guess!

Buckingham Palace announced the engagement of Princess Eugenie of York to Jack Brooksbank earlier today. The Palace also released pictures taken today at the picture gallery in Buckingham Palace. First, let’s obsess over the handsome couple for a minute!

Princess Eugenie engagement



Second, let’s take a look at Eugenie’s gorgeous engagement ring

Princess Eugenie engagement ring


The jeweler responsible for this masterpiece is yet to be revealed, but we know that the stone is a rare Brooksbank sapphire that’s estimated to have cost Jack a whopping sum of 100k British Pounds.

Surprisingly, The Princess of York chose to repeat an Erdem dress that she has worn twice before.

First, she wore the Hetty embroidered silk-organza mini dress to pose for Harper’s Bazaar and another time for another event. The gorgeous dress originally retailed for $5,758 (sold out everywhere), but Eugenie rarely ever repeats clothes!

Princess Eugenie erdem dress


Thinking about Princess Eugenie’s wedding dress, I can’t imagine of a designer other than Vivienne Westwood. But I’ll leave dress speculation to a later time. For now, I'm putting all my money on one tiara .......


 The York Diamond tiara


Duchess of York wedding tiara


-->

The tiara was bought from the court jeweler, Garrard, and gifted to the Sarah, Duchess of York shortly after her wedding. Since it hasn't been seen since the scandalous divorce. And what's a better occasion to wear this piece of art other than Eugenie's own wedding? At least, I'm hoping so!


Which tiara do you want Princess Eugenie to wear?

Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella Christmas 2017 Fashion!


The Princely Twins made a couple of appearances in December in time for Christmas. The first was a visit to the Christmas village in Monte Carlo.



For this visit. Prince Jacques wore a Christmas sweater from the Disney store. The sweater originally cost $34.95 but is now on sale for $10.99 and you can buy it from HERE.

Princess Gabriella went a little bit more to the high-end side and wore a floral nylon coat with a fur trim by Dolce and Gabbana. The coat is now sold out but it originally retailed for $682. Last time this D&G coat was seen online, it was on sale for $409.
For the annual Christmas photo, the twins switched places. 


Prince Jacques climbed up the high fashion hill and wore an ivory white Gucci shirt that retails for $275 and you can buy from HERE.
Gabriella on the other side went for a modest, yet purely enchanting, red dress by United Colors of Benetton. The frock originally retailed for £35.95 but is now on sale £17.98 and is available on their website.
Seeing Gabriella and Jacques is always a treat for me. It's amazing watching them grow up from tiny babies (hyperlink) to the beautiful children they are now. I can't help but be concerned -from a modernist perspective- if the Gabriella is always in pink/red and Jacques is in neutral/blue just because they are expected to wear certain colours and styles based on their genders. Prince Albert and Princess Charlene said once in an interview that Gabriella likes pink, so I'm really hope she's not dressed to meet a certain stereotype!


What do you think of the twins' outfits?
