After cancelling a handful of engagements, most notably the visit to the Netherlands, Princess Charlene made an appearance as a new rose was named after her.
For the occasion the princess repeated an Akris dress, many of you, eagle-eyed followers immediately recalled that Charlene has worn it last July for the first autism conference.
The dress is officially described as a “sleeveless short coat dress with front pleats”. and it comes from the Spring 2013 collection, you can see the runway version below in yellow.
I found this dress to be very reminiscent of the coat dress Char wore to the Fete Nationale in 2012, also by Akris.
One could barely notice the bump with those pleats. Brilliant choice, me thinks.
Charlene topped her dress with an Akris “sand silk faille trench coat with back pleat” that she has also worn before.
Her Serene Highness finished her look with soft makeup (that didn’t exactly hide how tired she looked) and her go-to pearl stud earrings.
