Princess Charlene and Ivanka Trump in Jumpsuits

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!

You can see that it is indeed a jumpsuit! Getty Images.

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.

Love that Charlene kept the jewelry simple with big diamond studs. Getty Images.

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.

Hi Jill,

Charlene and Ivanka look great in their jumpsuits. Very 70's. I wore jumpsuits in the day & loved them.

Yes,Charlene does resemble Stallone's ex-wife Brigitte Nielsen. Very difficult to wear that very short, off the face hairstyle. A beautiful face certainly helps; and, both Charlene & Brigitte filled that bill.

The Charlene outfit barely makes the jumpsuit designation on a technicality...her look could do with a bit of softening...perhaps she & Fat Albert (with an 'F') should reallocate gym time and carb consumption.

Ivanka always looks good but count GSL in Melania's camp.

Hi Rosie! I think Charlene looks so great in this evening jumpsuit and I really like that she has kept her hair so short. It suits her. I wish she would break out a little more of the Van Cleef & Arpels I know she has access to or owns outright but you know I am greedy that way lol. xx

Hi GSL, well I don't know what else to call Charlene's outfit, it is not a dress since the bottom half is actually a pair floaty pants. I am going with jumpsuit. Also, you are so mean, I'm laughing but are you also calling Charlene fat? I think not! I know people are not fans of either one of them but I am keeping an open mind about them both (Ivanka too for that matter) and I don't speculate about their marriage. It's nobody's business but their own. The kids are gorgeous. I have read in several Grace bios that of her three children, Albert was/is the easiest to get along with and the most good-natured. He certainly seems very solicitous of, and complimentary toward, Charlene when I see them in interviews so I hope they are both happy and that Charlene made a good deal for herself. Now if I can just see more jewelry on her...

How's your summer GSL? What do you think of this administration so far? xx

Charlene should do fewer shoulder presses and Fat Albert less chocolate eclair reps.

Hi GSL, what??? But I think Charlene's shoulders look amazing! She still looks like a swimmer! xx
