Princess Charlene's Fashion

Worn in Week: Princess Charlene Wears Stella McCartney and Max Mara!

Yes, just like you read it, we have two new designer added to the list. But let's start from the beginning!


On August, 17 Prince Albert and Princess Charlene arrived in Norway for the 50th birthday, they both were dressed casually as they played some sports.


Later that night, the couple changed to their semi-formal evening attires to attend the evening celebrations. Charlene wore a repeated black Max Mara jumpsuit paired with a black clutch, a leopard shawl and her Walter Steiger black pumps.


The jumpsuit was first worn at the graduation ceremony of the International School of Monaco this year, I thought it was Akris back then but when they confirmed that they did not design it I had to search and it turned out to be the jumpsuit seen below.


Nina Doberv wore it in red as did the model above, Char's version seems to be a bit more satin-ish but many celebs have worn this jumpsuit and it seems to vary from one another. I like the new cuff Char paired it with, but I'm not sure if the jumpsuit is flattering on Charlene's physique!
On a different note: I think this jumpsuit is Max Mara too.




The couple arrived in Paroldo the next day where Prince Albert was made a "Honorary Citizen of Paroldo". Charlene repeated the shawl, the clutch and the cuff with a different suit/jumpsuit that she apparently didn't feel very good about as she covered it with the shawl the whole day, shouldn't she have covered those sandals, too?


Although I think it looks cute with the burgundy shawl (reminds me of Maxima for some reason), I think there was a wardrobe malfunction, I don't believe she'd normally go for an outfit like this (maybe I'm in denial?).


On September 1, the princess arrived in Saint Geours de Maremne in southwestern France for one of her Learn to Swim activities. Char wore a RED Nike jacket, a white a polo and a pair of pale blue jeans.


She later changed to that swimming thing for some much=appreciated cuteness with kids.


Later that week on the 5th of September, Charlene joined Albert in front of the Palace to play a match for the Masters of Petanque (Albert won).


And finally, earlier today (7th of September) Princesse Charlene de Monaco attended the Finales of the Monaco Petanque Masters 2013 with Melanie de Massey.


Charlene wore this new dress.


The illusion dress features two very strong trends this summer; the monochrome black and white mix and color blocking. The dress comes from the latest collection of Stella McCartney, and while I don't remember seeing Charlene wearing Stella since her wedding, Char said in 2010 that she'd like to see Stella open a store in Monaco.



You can shop this knee-length dress online from HERE for $795. It's described as:
  • Bi colour form fitting compact jersey dress.
  • Concealed back zip closure and knee length.
 And is made of: 84% Viscose, 11% Nylon, 5% Elastane.



 Charlene von Monaco kept her makeup simple with pale pink lipstick and eye shadow/ That's a perfect look, j'adore!

  1. I think that she is wearing 2 shawls as it was fairly cool that day. I think that I saw pictures of both Albert and Charlene with black coats soon after the above picyures were taken. She obviously thought that the weather was going to be warmer, hence the scandals. Her make-up was terrible that day.
    I like the black and white dress. But at that price, I would have expected natural fibres.

    1. Viscose is a type of natural fibre (processed from natural wood fibres).
      Today it is rather common to add 5% elastane to other fibres. It helps to keep the form of the garment when repeatedly washed - at least this was told to me when I purchased a pair of cotton jeans - with 5% elastane. (the label was Marina Rinaldi which is owned the same company as Max Mara)

    2. Viscose is considered a man-made fiber (see wikipedia). Production of viscose is declining because of the use of polluting solvents.
