Princess Charlene's Fashion

You Will NOT Believe Who Made Princess Charlene's "Casual" Poncho!

Princess Charlene visited the Columbus Art Gallery in Monaco last month. There, SAS La Princesse de Monaco met Mikhail Baryshnikov, the world-renowned ballet dancer. Mikhail is, however, better known for his role as Alexander Petrosky, the studio 54, artist lover of Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and The City. The guy that she waited for in the mille-feuille Atelier Versace gown at the hotel, remember? Anyway, Mikhail is very involved in arts as he opened his namesake arts center in New York in 2005.

Charlene kept it simple with a crisp white blouse with a necktie, dark jeans, and a poncho. The poncho the Princess of Monaco chose is the Rocabar from Hermes in gris.

Hermes Rocabar poncho Princess Charlene

The Hermes stable is made of 90% merino wool at 10% cashmere and features a leather detail.
You can buy it online for a whopping 1,325 USD from the Hermes website. Aside from the price tag on that poncho, I'm enamored by this look, it's simple, sophisticated and different than most of Charlene's everyday looks. Do you agree?
