Princess Charlene's Fashion

Worn in Week: Princess Charlene Wears Akris for her First Appearance after Pregnancy Announcement!

Last Saturday, Prince Albert, Princess Charlene and Princess Caroline attended the reopening of the Princess Grace Rose Garden. The garden that was created in 1984 had been closed for 9 months for a makeover as it celebrates its 30th anniversary.

After cancelling a handful of engagements, most notably the visit to the Netherlands, Princess Charlene made an appearance as a new rose was named after her.


For the occasion the princess repeated an Akris dress, many of you, eagle-eyed followers immediately recalled that Charlene has worn it last July for the first autism conference.

The dress is officially described as a "sleeveless short coat dress with front pleats". and it comes from the Spring 2013 collection, you can see the runway version below in yellow.

I found this dress to be very reminiscent of the coat dress Char wore to the Fete Nationale in 2012, also by Akris.

One could barely notice the bump with those pleats. Brilliant choice, me thinks.

Charlene topped her dress with an Akris "sand silk faille trench coat with back pleat" that she has also worn before.

Her Serene Highness finished her look with soft makeup (that didn't exactly hide how tired she looked) and her go-to pearl stud earrings.

Do you like this look as much as I do?

  1. she is gorgeous. cannot wait to see the babies ( and maternity wear)

  2. She does seems to be thicker at the waist.

  3. In the new pictures at the yacht club, Princess Charlene's face seems fuller. She looks much younger as a result. I think that the morning sickness is now over and she is starting to swell (especially with twins) in the face and at the waist. Is that maternity wear that she is now wearing?

    1. I doubt it's a maternity dress, I've looked everywhere to find the dress, no luck though!

    2. In this video of the yacht club at 2:09min, the wind blows Princess Charlene's dress against her tummy and you can see a little bump.
