Princess Charlene Celebrates Sainte Devote in Akris and Dior!
The 26th and the 27th of January mark the Sainte Devote celebrations in Monaco. Charlene missed the celebrations of Monaco’s patron Sainte last year because of a cold so this time it was quite a come back!
The celebrations started in front of Sainte Devote Church on the 26th where Prince Albert and Princess Charlene burnt a boat as the tradition goes.
Charlene wore a black Akris coat and a pair black thigh-high boots. Honestly,, I can’t keep track of Char’s boots, she has way too many! But I think she has a similar brown pair that she used to wear often.
The next day, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene went to the St. Nicholas Cathedral for a mass.
Charlene wore a herringbone trench jacket, a grey cashmere turtleneck top and a jersey herringbone pencil skirt all by Akris. This outfit is really more complex that it
looks, the different scales of the herringbone pattern give it an edge and make it look less boring, I also like that she opted for a plain top, otherwise it would have been way too much. Charlene carried a black Akris Ai pochette made of horsehair.
The pumps aren’t actually plain, patent pumps, they have a greyish overlay from the back that can be seen in the photo below (if you zoom).

The pumps come from the fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection from Christian Dior. A view of them in black and powder pink is below.

Finally, Charlene wore her hair in a soft side wave and wore neutral makeup and finished her look with her Tabbah diamond stud earrings. Her engagement ring was nowhere to be seen, but at least she wore her Cartier wedding band.
