Princess Charlene's Fashion

Princess Charlene in Ralph Lauren for a Cocktail Reception

Last week the Prince and Princess of Monaco welcomed actors and actresses from around the world at the palace for a cocktail reception for the Monte Carlo Television Festival.

Princess Charlene in a Ralph Lauren Spring 2015 dress 

Charlene went for a rather subtle gown from the Spring 2015 collection of Ralph Lauren.

The dress features military-inspired pockets and epaulettes. And right before it was about to turn into a huge meh, the dress turned out to be backless (It's the white one in the background here)!

And the couple gave us some cuteness to make me forget that the frock would have looked better with the belt from the runway... okay!

The Princess of Monaco wore tan sandals and red lipstick... etc. Let's skip to the earrings!

Princess Charlene in Graff Diamonds earrings.

The earrings are obviously from Graff (I got that confirmed) and that gave me a lot of ideas: Char has worn several earrings with the same hoops, the main stones at the end are set in yellow gold while the hoops are set in white gold. So I thought that maybe Charlene owns the hoops and changes the bottom stones every time for a fresh look. And I turned out to be.... WRONG, as Graff confirmed that the bottom stones are not detachable.

This is Charlene's second pair of Graff Diamonds earrings in a week, and it's worth about a million dollars. Whether they're a loan, a gift or a recent purchase she just made, we'll probably never know. But we'll discuss that next week in a post!

Did this dress make it for you or is it just too white?

Princess Charlene Wears Graff for the Monte Carlo TV Festival 2015

While Prince Carl-Philip was tying the knot in a pretty cool ceremony in Sweden, Princess Charlene was opening the Festival de Télévision de Monte-Carlo

Right on what she wore, I really don't know. This black draped dress is surely not Akris and it's not on the runway of any of Charlene's regular brands or on sale in any stores that I've looked. However, it might be a version of this Ralph Lauren or this Hermes. If you have any idea, do tell!

Princess Charlene in Hermes shoes.
Charlene wore the "Highlight" Sandals from Hermes. The shoes are made of suede goatskin and their buckles are gold plated, fancy, eh? You can order this foot candy from the Hermes store for £820 (I don't really want to know much that is in dollars).

Now to the important part...

The Princess might have missed a tiara event, but she made sure to throw us a bone, a bone worth $700,000...
These earrings come from Graff Diamonds, and are made of diamonds and rubies. Alanna Martinez from had the chance to try the earrings in March in 2015 at the European Fine Art Fair in Holland.

Since they're valued at around 700,000, it's quite safe to assume that they're a loan.

Do you like these earrings on Charlene?
