It’s that time of year again! Monaco’s National Day, which typically means coats with a snazzy hat or two.
This year, Princess Charlene – our Char – went all dramatic in white head to toe, with a fedora and white gloves. Quite a focal point, although I think I liked the ensemble better once she removed the hat. I need to ask OrangeChia not to look too closely at Prince Albert’s uniform, because I do believe that is a blue and black combination.
The twins came out on the balcony to give a wave, and the beret is giving me a bad case of the ” I want that hat” blues. Jacques and his white gloves are quite an addition to the sartorial scene.
The Grimaldi Girls both appeared here, and I actually think Stephanie’s ensemble gets my win. I will forever want coats to cover dress hemlines, so I want Caroline’s coat to be an inch or two longer. Stephanie is purely great.
The rest of the gang made their appearance, and were a mixed bag in so many ways! UFO Nomore has identified the outfits of Beatrice, Tatiana and Alexandra as Dior. Marie Ducruet wore a Catherine Walker coat.
There is also some balcony baby action going on, in case you need a break from the onslaught of fashion with a capital F.
Albert continued his black and blue theme for the gala evening event, and Charlene flipped her ensemble and wore a black royal lady trouser suit. Caroline was in velvet Chanel.
You can catch glimpses of the rest of the Monaco team in the background here at the gala, representing in black velvet. New My Royals has few more photos, where you get better shots of the ensembles.
Coats, gloves and hats and velvet for evening – did National Day work sartorially for you?
