Princess Charlene at the Monaco Red Cross Ball 2018

Albert & Charlene at the Red Cross Ball 2018. A nice photo of them!

It’s always fun to see what Princess Charlene wears to the annual Monaco Red Cross Ball and I think this may be one of my favorite evening looks I’ve ever seen on her! I read over at The Royal Couturier that Charlene wore Atelier Versace to the ball, held on July 27, 2018. The silver evening bag is by them as well. I love the intricate beading on this dress so much, along with the dégradé color. The people who create these gowns are extremely talented and Charlene wears this dress very well!

Love the back bodice detailing of this dress! Photo by Stephane Cardinale/Corbis.

The full shot. Stunning!

Note the simple studs paired with an ear crawler!

Earrings both simple and edgy!

Love the diamond bangle too.

I was glad to see that the jewelry look was all about diamonds and of course Charlene mixed it up a bit, pairing tiny diamond studs with a diamond ear crawler on her left ear. I also loved the simple diamond bangle and I wonder if that is her amazing (and huge) engagement ring on her left hand, which I wish she would wear more often. It’s clear by now that she prefers to keep it pretty pared down in the gem department most of the time but I do love it when she gets her big diamond ring out! The Royal Couturier says it’s by Repossi and thinks the rest of her jewelry is too. You can read her full write-up here. A lot of the photos I used in this post came from The Daily Mail and their article about the event is here.

Magnificent beading, great bag, and is that her e-ring I spy?

I do not know if Charlene has a stylist or just works with designers within individual fashion houses (maybe both?) but I continue to love how she dresses for her position, body type, and personal style, whether she is making the selections herself or with the help of an assistant. This dress is another winner for me, it looks good on her from every angle and in different lighting. Check out how beautiful it is on the dance floor under the pinky-purple lights!

Let me know what you think of Charlene’s look!

GSL--Really? Are you serious? You don't like her name??? What's wrong with Charlene? Maybe you prefer it pronounced in the French way? I thought Albert had lost a pound or two but apparently you don't agree ha ha ha. How are you? xx

Hi Naomi! I love the dress so much. The couture workshops of Versace (and any other house) are filled with the most amazing artisans on the planet to my way of thinking! How are you? xx

Hi Becky! I would like to try on a crawler sometime and see if I could pull it off! xx
