Princess Charlene's Fashion

Princess Charlene Wears Stella McCartney to the 2018 Laureus Awards

Prince Albert and Princess Charlene attended the Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco this year. You may remember the Princess's red Carolina Herrera gown and the Cartier earrings that she wore that year.

This year, the princess of Monaco chose to wear a white gown by Stella McCartney. The one-shouldered white gown is called the Kate, most probably because Kate Hudson wore it to the Met Gala in May 2017. Kate was accompanied by the designer, Stella, herself at the event. Now,  the dress is a part of the spring-summer 2018 collection and Princess Charlene is one of the first people to wear it. The figure-hugging dress is made of viscose and spandex and is also available online in red and black. You can now buy this dress on Farfetch for 5065 USD.

The only other time Princess Charlene has worn Stella McCartney in public was in 2013 when she attended the Finales of the Monaco Petanque Masters. 

This year, Princess Charlene chose to wear Graff jewelry. Her diamond earrings are from the Bombé collection. The only available picture of this style is of emerald and diamond version which probably would have also complimented the dress with a pop of color.

As of now, there are no high-quality pictures of the bracelet her Serene Highness wore to confirm that it's from Graff diamonds as well. To me, it looks rather similar to the bracelet Char wore the christening of the Seven Seas Explorer.

Serving as a pop of color, was the striking red lipstick the princess chose to wear to complete her look. A rather new side-swept hairstyle was the finishing touch on this ensemble.
This is Princess Charlene's first red carpet appearance since she turned 40. In fact, it's one of her first appearance of 2018 as she has been keeping a low profile lately. seeing her wearing Stella McCartney and looking this amazing, it makes me both impressed and sad that she hasn't been very active with her engagements for the past year or so. but all in all, this look will definitely be one of my favorites of all time. And they all seemed to be having fun at this awards ceremony!

P.S 1: have you noticed Prince Albert's white sneakers. All men attending the event seem to be wearing some sort of a sports shoe. Inside joke maybe???

P.S 2: You guessed right, we're definitely having a fashion face-off soon!

What about you, did you like Princess Charlene's Stella McCartney dressed as much as I did?

12 times Princess Charlene and Charlize Theron Looked Like Style Twins!

As our Instagram hits the 10,000 followers mark (thanks, everyone!), I looked back at Princess Charlene's style over the years. And man has A LOT changed since the first time I saw a picture of her. The Princess of Monaco has been in the public eye for 12 years (she started dating Prince Albert publicly in 2006). In these years, Miss Wittstock turned Princess Charlene of Monaco dealt with several stylists, hair and makeup artists, designers, colors, and hair-lengths. The only constant, however, is the fact that she has always looked like another South African belle, Charlize Theron. Sometimes more than other of course, that is why today, I wanted to share with you a dozen times Princess Charlene and Charlize Theron looked freakishly like each other's alter ego!

1. Princess Charlene at a Ralph Lauren show in Paris, 2013 VS. Charlize Theron at a Dior screening of Sleepwalking in New York, 2007

Hairstyle, makeup, earrings, and even features are all almost identical. Princess Charlene wins this one with her amazing purple Ralph Lauren Collection gown and historic jewelry, though!

2. When they both swept their short hair to the side and wore bright makeup!

Well, Charlize did it some 5 years earlier, but still!

 3. When they both showed their sassy side with a black headband!

Charlene wore this headband with an Akris gown for the Rose Ball in 2012, Charlize did it for IFP's 21st Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards.

4.  When they styled their hair flat with a black dress

Charlize was subtle with her simple hairstyle and natural makeup at the 2014 Academy Awards in a Dior Couture gown and Harry Winston Jewelry. A year earlier, the Princess of Monaco had the same hairstyle and makeup at the Atelier Versace Spring 2013 show in Paris.

5. On a casual stroll in the US!

Put Charlize's bag with Charlene's outfit and you've got a killer look!

6. When they both had messy curls!

7. When they both had pixie haircuts and somber looks!

Can you spot the Dior Tribal earrings Charlize is wearing? Charlene has them in several variations.

8. When they both went 60's for Dior Haute Couture!

The South African beauties both had similar hairstyles wearing Dior. For Charlene, it was to attend the Dior show in 2013, for Charlize it was the Academy Awards in 2006 in Zac Posen-looking Christian Dior gown!

9. When they both took pixie haircuts to the next level, AGAIN!

At an interview, Princess Charlene revealed that her mother and Charlize's mother used to go to the same hairdresser in Benoni. Now you'd think Charlene and Charlize share the same hairdresser themselves (they actually don't). Charlize debuted this fierce hairstyle in 2013 at the Oscars. Princess Charlene followed her footsteps last year and had this very daring buzzcut to attend the AMREF gala in Monaco.

10. When Charlize Channeled Charlene for the Met Gala.

Charlize's entire look for the 2014 Met Gala (the James Charles exhibition) reminds me of Charlene. The gown black and white, Charlene's favorite colours. It's strapless. And the jewelry is major yet subtle and understated. Even the hairstyle reminds me of Charlene's visit to Germany in 2012.
N.B: Charlene's dress is not Dior, we were wrong all these years!

11. When Charlize stole Charlene's hair (but had way better makeup)

The real question here is: Charlene's Van Cleef and Arpels Ocean Necklace or Charlize's Chopard Garden of Kalahari earrings?

12. When they both wore gold metallic dresses and red lipstick.

Have to get this one to Charlene, though. The Ralph Lauren dress is perfection while Charlize's Tom Ford looks like a gold armor, fabulous wargear if you ask me!

Do you think there's a strong resemblance between the two South African beauties?
