Worn in Week: Princess Charlene wears Akris to the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters

Last Friday Princess Charlene attended a Monte-Carlo ATP Masters Series Tournament tennis match and met Roger Federer who gifted her signed rackets that are going to be auctioned for the benefit of her foundation.


Charlene wore simple pants with a 2-button blazer and white top accessorized with her Armani ballet flats that she has worn to the same event last year.


Surprisingly, Charlene wore a name tag. Her soft makeup was done by Pablo Ardizzone.

On the 20th, the princess joined Prince Albert and Elisabeth-Anne de Massy to watch the final match between Stanislas Wawrinka and Roger Federer. 


 Wawrinka won (perhaps Charlene should have made him sign a racket, too).

Princess Charlene wearing Akris

Charlene wore an Akris suit which consists of a crisp white double-breasted blazer with wide-leg pants where the fabric is actually kind of rolled to create the effect. While the silhouette of the pantsuit is something we're used to with Charlene, the interpretation is quite unique.


Charlene's nude pumps are most probably the Gilbert pumps from Jimmy Choo



Char usually wears the Agnes or Vikki pumps, but I think this pair is less pointy and more rounded.



You can buy them from HERE.

Princess Charlene's makeup

Once more, Pablo Ardizzone did her makeup with Radiant-Orchid-coloured lipstick, Pantone's 2014 colour of the year. J'adore! But for the Grand Prix next month I need to see COLOUR!



What did you think of Charlene's looks?

Princess Charlene Covers Hola Magazine!

As you all know by now, Princess Charlene covered this week's issue of the Spanish Hola Magazine and wore the Ocean tiara for the first time. I am sorry I haven't posted about that earlier but one of our readers promised to provide a translation of the interview (the feature is on 24 pages) from Spanish to English but ended up running late, so I will be updating this post with the translation of the interview. If anyone of you is interested in translating, please contact me (in a comment or at AkramAlNagdy(at)gmail(dot)com) and I will send you the feature.

Below we'll see some of the photos taken by Vanessa von Zitzewitz.


Many thought Charlene was in bed sheets for the cover, but actually that's a Dior satin dress.


Charlene wore it and apparently another Dior dress in the same color for the setting. She paired it with a drop dead gorgeous Graff bracelet shown below in the white and yellow diamond version.


Charlene was shot wearing the tiara with two other Dior dresses.


I have to say I'm quite impressed by how the tiara looks, it's quite big and substantial, I'm also impressed that Stephane Madinier could create a hairdo suitable for the tiara with Charlene's short hair. Char paired her tiara with her Cartier heart stud diamond earrings.


The other dress is so not what you'd expect Charlene to wear!

 
Full skirt and boat neckline, I'm still surprised!


Charlene also posed in front of the Musée Océanographique in the Akris gown she wore for the Grand Prix gala last year.


She posed in the same place wearing a white Akris coat and either new or VERY old -huge- stud earrings (she's worn a similar pair like 5 years ago), I'm not posting that photo though :P


Hola didn't miss the opportunity to shoot in the most popular part of the palace, the main courtyard.


A few photos were taken at the horse-hoe staircase with Char wearing a spectacular Dior high-low cashmere and satin dress.


The feature in which the princess has let Hola get into the intimacy of the palace got even to the princely pool and to Charlene's office where she posed for a couple of photos wearing a repeated, long Akris skirt and white top.


So the princess uses an Apple laptop, hmm.


Finally, Charlene was photographed gazing into the distance wearing a dress/top by Stefanie Renoma. It's the first time -to my knowledge- for Charlene to wear this designer and I absolutely love the color on her. Will try to know more about this piece (and designer) in the future. The natural makeup for the entire shoot was perfected by Pablo Ardizzone who you'll get to know here in an interview soon.


I'm absolutely thrilled to finally see Charlene wearing the Ocean tiara which I think looks great worn. I'm also very tempted to start a Charlene jewelry-pedia here, what do you think?


What do you think of the shoot? And the tiara?
