Step Aside, Kate Middleton: Princess Charlene of Monaco Is Slaying Royal Style Now
Kate Middleton has long been a royal to watch, especially when it comes to her fashion choices. The Duchess of Cambridge is known for her literal sartorial decisions and modern updates on classic silhouettes. However, she isn’t the only royal getting attention right now for her style. Princess Charlene of Monaco stepped out in a daring ensemble over the weekend that just might change how you think about princess style.
The former Olympian attended the 69th Annual Red Cross Ball Gala at Sporting Monte-Carlo with her husband, Prince Albert II, on Friday in a stunning, silver-sequined jumpsuit.
The custom Atelier Versace, which she accented with a bold smokey eye and tousled, slicked-back locks, is a decidedly more fashion-forward silhouette than traditional royal style. And it’s just the latest example of her sartorial prowess. Check out some of her other gorgeous looks below.
1. Green Glory: The princess wowed in a floor-length, one-shoulder dress as she awarded medals at the Diamond League athletics series in Monaco this month. She topped it off with a big, bold, and colorful necklace reminiscent of her home country, South Africa.
2. Glam Gal: Her Serene Highness may have been attending the Monte Carlo TV Show festival, but she was the one stealing the show in her bright red gown.
3. Resplendent in Red: The princess definitely knows how to work the red carpet, and you can bet all eyes were on her when she stepped out in this creation.
