Grand Prix. So let’s see how Charlene did -in terms of dressing- over
that week and the few days before it!
very next day after the successful Dior show in Monaco, Charlene wore
her blue Dior suit as she accompanied Prince Albert on their visit to
Charlene accessorized her suit with nothing but black flats, most probably by Walter Steiger.
days later (May, 20th), Charlene von Monaco attended the World Images
Lova Closing Party in Cannes, Charlene later attended the Roberto
Cavalli yacht party.
the occasion, the princess wore a black Akris jumpsuit. This outfit
caused quite a debate as many thought she looked gorgeous while many
others thought the neckline wasn’t so princessy. I’m on the edge, but I
absolutely love the clutch, mainly because it’s green and probably by
Cavalli. Char added a blazer later (not by Akris), you can see it here.
On May 23rd, the Prince and Princess visited the port where the Grand Prix race was to take place.
Charlene wore a “Pastis
wool double-face sleeveless sheath with waist zip detail.” (Akris
words), (Does anyone know what pastis is?) Anyway, gorgeous colour and
I’m pretty glad she didn’t open the waist zip! Walter Steiger nude flats
completed her look.
Later that day Charlene and Albert attended a casual yacht party of some Indian doctor.
what you’re seeing is right, Charlene is wearing Burberry (yes that’s
the weirdest thing in this pic for me). A similar top is available on Farfetch for $196.
May 24th’s morning was the time for the princely couple to visit the handicap area as people there were watching the race.
I guess, and it’s only pure guessing, that Charlene de Monaco was wearing another Burberry!
identical, except for the buttons that can change from even one shop to
another. The coat above is available for purchase on Burberry’s website for $1,150 (after sale).
Later that day, the couple attended the Pierre
Frolla ‘Operation Poseidon’ at Fort Antoine where a diver restored the
flag, Charlene then presented her foundation’s ambassadors at the yacht
dressed in Akris top, gilet and button up skirt (she has a similar one
in a lighter shade). Although the colour is much of a MEH, I find the
contrast between the different fabrics interested and the overall look
is classy, flats continued!
They also had a night event that day! A Grand Prix party hosted by the Prince at the palace.
La Princesse wore an Akris spring 2013 dress, of course it was modified and lined, here‘s the runway version.
Char wore her go-to big Lorenz Baumer earrings.
May 26th was the day of the Grand Prix final race AKA the most important day in the Grand Prix weekend.
Prince and Princess arrived in a Lexus car which Charlene drove herself
(usually Albert is the one who drives). Also in attendance was Pierre Casiraghi, his girlfriend Beatrice Borromeo, Andrea Casiraghi and his Girlfriend Tatiana.
Charlene chose a “Fluo
pebblestone patchwork embroidery sleeveless dress”. I seriously don’t
understand why they use these hard descriptions, what about ” A
sleeveless V-neck dress with a checkered designs that echoes the Grand
Prix flag in a gorgeous neon pink”?
although Charlene’s dress caused a sensation all over twitter, her
fierce shoes caused a dilemma for me as I wasn’t able to identify them
for a few hour!
The gorgeous pair is Giorgio Armani, shown above in black which you can get from Farfetch.com for the price of $635. The cut-out T-bar sandals are described as:
slipper from Giorgio Armani featuring a wide T-bar strap to the front
with square cut-out detailing, a thin buckle fastening ankle strap, a
suede covered stiletto heel and a contrasting nude sole.
wore a cute pair of sunglasses which I’m not able to identify
yet/at-all, but they’re giving me Prada vibes, maybe you can help?
I absolutely love this look, Charlene always does something new for the Grand Prix, this time it’s both new and cool!
As usual, a dinner gala took place that night to honor the winners.
The Princess wore a “Calla trapezoid apron gown with horsehair detail” by Akris. This gown is a modified version of this Spring 2013 gown below.
Charlene wore a striking purple lipstick as she went jewelry-less except for a diamond bracelet which looks new to me.
like that Char tried a new silhouette which is really flattering on
her, but this attire falls flat after the morning’s outfit, nothing
Charlene wears can upstage her in pink… except purple, or a tiara.. or
I LOVED Charlene's pink dress. A winner, indeed!
Her purple lipstick was just daring enough, and made her evening outfit.
Re: jumpsuit. I don't understand how the neckline caused such an uproar. The Duchess of Cambridge has worn items with very similar necklines (ie Issa engagement pic dress, Jenny Packham Olympic Kickoff Engagement) several times.
pastis – to my knowledge it is a drink, but I don't know its colour
I love all of Charlene's clothes except when she wears the long wide pants. She always seems to look her best at the Grand Prix. She looked amazing at the Grand prix last year too.
Pastis is THE drink in France and hence in Monaco. It is distilled from anis and basically clear, but one drinks it mixed with plain with water (sometimes also some ice cubes) and then, with the water, Pastis becomes that milky-greenish colour. I loooove Pastis, it reminds me of the South :-), regards Barbara
one of my reader think that sunglasses could be DIOR :)
Just perfection!! Love every single outfit Princess Charlene wore last week. Adorable!
