Breaking news! Her Serene Highness is feeling blue! No, not sad – how could anyone be sad on National Day, the grandest day of the year in the Principality? – literally BLUE.
Along with the rest of the Grimaldi family, Princess Charlene emerged from the palace in a cobalt blue velvet custom designed Akris coat with navy blue satin details. A bold move that garnered a few side eyes and had me humming the tune “she wore blue velvet”.
Underneath the Princess opted for a simple velvet shirt-dress accessorised with navy blue leather gloves a navy blue suede pumps.
What really set the look off was a navy blue hat worn tilted to side like a society lady from eras past also designed by the house of Akris. Minimal makeup with a coral lip and simple diamond studs complimented this simple but stunning ensemble that the photographers couldn’t get enough of.
Stepping out of the Cathedral on the arm of Prince Albert, the sun accentuated the crispness of the velvet as excited watchers gleefully captured the scene on their phones.
Princess Charlene has been a supporter of Akris for some time now attending the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in London in a grey coat from the house and posing for her official engagement photos in a pale silk green gown.
Princess Charlene, this is one for the stylebook!
