These photos of Princess Charlene of Monaco at the Red Cross Ball last week caught my eye, especially when I realized she is not wearing a gown but a strapless wide-legged sequin-festooned jumpsuit! It is by Versace and I have to say, I love it. It seems exactly the kind of evening couture piece that Donatella Versace and her team would dream up and I think it’s a great edgy look for Charlene!

Anyone else out there think Charlene bears a slight resemblance to Sylvester Stallone’s former wife Brigitte Nielsen here? I’m seeing it in the hair and the height and the strong shoulders.

I liked this green jumpsuit that Ivanka Trump wore during the G20 Summit in July. I thought she looked very sleek in it, and I loved the pairing with sky-high black heels, a small black clutch and very simple jewelry, what looks to me like a gold openwork cuff and maybe earrings. I also like the extreme side-part in her hair!

I don’t own a jumpsuit but after seeing these photos of Charlene and Ivanka I wonder if it’s time to keep my eyes open for one.
