Fashion ID: Princess Charlene in Tibi

As we had a flashback yesterday for Princess Charlene's birthday, let's have another one today, this time to just a couple of years ago.


Princess Charlene wore this dress in July 2013 to attend the 150th anniversary of Monte-Carlo SBM.

As the title says the high-low sleeveless silk dress is from Tibi. This color-block style was actually quite popular that summer and was sold in different colors for around $675.

I honestly knew about this dress for so long but I was never excited to post about it as I wasn't a fan of how it looked on Charlene. the styling fell flat with the Stuart Wetizman wedges and tan Akris bag and the few pictures available made the Princess of Monaco look weirdly proportioned, but well, it's a new brand added to the wardrobe of Char anyway, no?

What do you think of this dress?

Princess Charlene turns 37: A look back

So as Princess Charlene of Monaco turns 37 today, let us take at her as a toddler.

Baby Princess Charlene

These photos were published by the Daily Mail who interviewed members of the Princess's family (I'm not quoting/publishing/rereading/mentioning that interview).

Young Princess Charlene and her mother, Lynette.

The photos show Princess Charlene as a tiny toddler with her parents. The photo with her mother is my favorite, it shows that Char was all eyes and proves that she got her spectacular looks from her breathtakingly beautiful mother.

So tune in tomorrow for a tiny fashion revelation from a couple of year back!



Happy birthday Princess Charlene!

Prince Albert and Princess Charlene (in Akris) Present Their Twins to Monaco

 Earlier today, Monaco was all festive as Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco made a balcony appearance to present Prince Jacques, The Hereditary Prince of Monaco and his sister, Princess Gabriella.

Those who watched the live stream of the event might have noticed that Prince Albert was holding Prince Jacques and stepped into the balcony first while Princess Charlene, holding Princess Gabriella waited a mere second before joining him.

The Prince and Princess stayed on the balcony for just a few minutes as it was quite cold for the newborn twins before getting back inside the palace.


The Grimaldis joined on the balcony in (almost) full force. Right now we have photos of Princess Caroline of Monaco who wore a beautiful leopard coat and a blue dress with what seems to be a new set of gold jewelry and Princess Stephanie who did NOT wear a scrunchie!
UPDATE: Princess Caroline's jewelry belongs to her mother, Princess Grace (PIC), thanks to Maridje.

Charlotte Casiraghi was also there. This time with her boyfriend, Gad ElMaleh. Andrea Casiraghi, Tatiana and Pauline Ducruet were not seen, though.

Spotted in attendance were Charlene's brother, Gareth Wittstock and his girlfriend, Roisin Galvin. I'll be updating this posts with more photos when they become available.

After the balcony appearance, the Prince and Princess of Monaco went to the Place Du Palais to meet the gathering crowds. Albert and Charlene shook hands, hugged and even kissed many of the residents who gathered to celebrate the occasion. On the live stream you could hear people saying "Congratulations" to La Princess de Monaco and her replying "Thank you".


Talking fashion, Princess Charlene chose Akris for the happy occasion. Albert Kriemler designed "a snow-white cashmere double-face coat" and a jersey shift dress.


The Princess teamed her outfit with Akris off-white gloves and a pair of grey/tan boots.


I think the boots are the "CHICBOOT" from Stuart Weitzman but I'm waiting for better photos to have them officially IDed


Charlene von Monaco completed her look with her pearl stud earrings and a simple makeup.

And in case you haven't noticed, The Princess debuted a new hairdo today, I love the fringe!


After leaving the Place Du Palais to the Palace, The Princely Couple returned to the balcony to greet the crowds one more time.
I thought Char looked really elegant and extremely happy today if quite tired which is very understandable given that she had a C-section less than a month ago.



One last note, @JerushaRaath on Twitter spotted the protea among the flowers used today, a nod to Princess Charlene's home country, South Africa. Sweet, no?


Are you as excited as I am for the baptism on the twins?
