Princess Charlene of Monaco’s sartorial archive is a treasure trove of tailored designer suits, bejeweled dresses and regal corsets that have long contributed to her reputation as being one of the best-dressed royal ladies in the world.
Rewind to the noughties, when Charlene (née Wittstock) was still courting Prince Albert of Monaco, and her wardrobe was a colourful collection of vampy mini dresses and backless numbers she’d rarely be seen in now she’s a Monégasque royal
Back in 2008, Prince Albert and his then-girlfriend Charlene attended the Equestrian Show Jumping final of the Beijing Olympic Games.
Looking bold and beautiful, the South African swimmer looked effortlessly glamorous in a red satin mini dress adorned with an ornate print.
The blonde beauty stood out from the crowd in her backless number, which featured an elegant high-cut bodice and collared neckline.
The princess-to-be swept her blonde hair into a sleek French pleat, highlighting a set of delicate pearl earrings and her glowy, natural makeup look.
Nearly two decades on, Princess Charlene of Monaco’s standout outfits still catches the attention of royal style fans who can’t help but admire her unrivaled sartorial prowess.
Earlier this month, the mother-of-two joined her husband at the 74th Red Cross Ball in Monaco, where she enchanted guests in a glittering floor-length ball gown from Akris and Van Cleef & Arpels earrings from the ‘Romeo & Juliet’ collection.
“She looks wonderful here. The dress is beautiful and these statement earrings actually work with the look. I’m loving the darker hair as well,” penned one fan on Instagram, as another wrote: “She looks gorgeous! The dress, the earrings, the smile!”
“The subtle sparkles and silhouette look stunning on her!” chimed in a third fan, as a fourth wrote: “Wow, I hardly recognized her. She looks fabulous.”
Along with her ever-evolving style, Princess Charlene has become somewhat of a chameleon when it comes to switching up her hairstyles.
From shoulder-length Barbie blonde tresses to her famous icy pixie cut and brunette crown, there are few hairstyles the Princess of Monaco hasn’t tried over the last decade.
