Photos have been all over the internet and the press has been raving for quite a few days now. The reason is simply that Princess Charlene has looked phenomenal in her last appearance in Paris. I waited because I thought she would attend Prince Charles’s birthday and we’d get two amazing appearances, but Prince Albert has attended the birthday dinner solo.
In Paris however, the couple were all smiles together as they Mr. and Mrs. Macron at the Elysee. The Princess later joined Mrs. Marcon at Versailles Palace for lunch with other spouses including Melania Trump (who looked amazing in Dior).
What Did Princess Charlene Wear?
Oversized bow top
Houndstooth one-button wool coat
High waisted wide leg wool trousers
Mini ‘Antigona’ tote
What Do I Think of This Outfit?
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you would know that I prefer HSH in colour, but this time I’m all for the black and grey. On a day when the whole world remembers soldiers that gave up their lives, fashion should take the backseat. The occasion calls for a sombre look, but a princess among a group of first ladies (and first gentlemen) should also dress for her rank. This look delivers on both ends. The black and grey are subdued enough while the gigantic bow and red lipstick give the flair the Princess of Monaco should have at such a gathering. We’ve seen a similar retro hairstyle recently at the Princess Grace Awards. Perhaps the good reviews from everyone are the reason why the Princess opted for it again this time. The makeup is perfection!
This is the first time Princess Charlene wears Givenchy, a brand that I’ve been hoping for her to wear for years… maybe dreams come true after all! The House of Givenchy was deeply connected to the Grimaldis at a point in time. We’ll look deeper into the relationship the Maison had with Princess Grace at a later time. But for now, do you love this look as much as I do?
