Princess Charlene should have a reality TV show called Keeping Up With Princess Charlene… or maybe it should be about me trying to keep up. Because the Princess of Monaco has been out and about so much lately and I’m loving it, especially since there’s a gown involved. Last night the Princess delivered.
The Peace and Sport organization aims to build peaceful communities through the power of sport. This may sound familiar as the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation also aims to build communities through sport and ensure that children grow up to be the best they can be. That explains why Mr. Gareth Wittstock, the Secretary General of PCMF (and brother of the princess) signed a partnership agreement with Mr. Joël Bouzou, President and Founder of Peace and Sport between their institutions. It will be interesting to see what comes of this agreement in the future.
The Peace and Sport Forum & Awards have been held in Monaco several times. Princess Charlene has attended twice before this year, both in black.
Miss Wittstock wore a black, backless gown by Akris and pearl and emerald jewelry.
La Princesse Charlene de Monaco was in head-to-toe Dior. This backless dress, first worn to a magazine photo shoot, would reappear several times over the years since then.
Princess Charlene seems to have accessorized the LV frock with her Dior slingback pumps, also worn to the TV Festival in June.
The Repossi pearl ring made a come back and the Princess also wore her big diamond and pearl earrings which she had made from old jewelry by a private designer a few years ago. I like the simple hairstyle. There’s something in the makeup, though, that makes her glowing, can’t put my finger on it!
I don’t think anyone could disagree that this is an elegant look. Whether it’s memorable or not is another argument. This is a dreass I can see HSH wearing often (if she did wear anything often). A statement necklace, coloured shoes, or even a belt and you’ve got a totally different look. That said, I always prefer it when the Princess wears colours and she’s been treating us to several colours lately. The problem is, the more I see Princess Charlene out and about, the more I want to see her at more events!
The Arbre de Noel will take place on the 18th at the Palais Princier. As usual, children of the prinicipality will be welcomed with gifts by the Princely Family. Princess Charlene skipped the event last year, but hopefully she’ll be this year as she’s always so happy around children!
What do you think?

The slit in the long black dress is too high for Royalty.
In the picture where Princess Charlene is sitting you can see all of her leg almost up to the bum. This is not a royal dress..
The short black dress looks very nice though.
Louis Vuitton is not a royal couturier. His skirts are too short and his slits in long dresses are too high. Princess Charlene should abstain from wearing Louis Vuitton.
The slit goes up to her midthigh when she’s sitting down ;)
the dress is long with long sleeves, don’t you think it needed the slit to make a bit sexy and young?
I also feel that the slit being so high is not royal, even if the wearer has a good body. As I’m not that familiar with the designer, if that is his “specialty” then perhaps it should be pointed out to him what is not appropriate for a royal lady?
It’s ready to wear. Meaning it was bought from the store, not designed especially for HSH.
Ready to wear, that is exactly the problem. Charlene should have custom made clothes that are appropriate for her standing. She is no longer a South African country girl, she married into a royal house of Europe and should be clothed accordingly. Otherwise she will constantly have bad press, and rightly so. Europeans are rather snobbish.
