All the world loves a princess, and since Kate Middleton showed up on the scene, the media has gone into a royal frenzy over her. Everything from her hair to her shoes (and now her baby bump) is ogled and praised. But what about the equally, if not more lovely, Princess Charlene of Monaco? This South African beauty is a knockout - tall, blonde, and a former Olympic swimmer who has the grace of a dolphin. She always look fabulously chic, whether she's attending a black tie event, sitting in the front row at Paris Fashion Week or doing charity work.
The biggest difference between Kate and Charlene's looks is that Kate looks very, very styled. Big curly hair and heavy makeup are her trademarks. Charlene, on the other hand, keeps her look natural and timeless. Her makeup is usually soft, light and feminine (no harsh and heavy black eyeliner here!) but from time to time she will glam it up with a bold red lipstick. She is a big fan of updos and, before her famous hair chop, was nearly always seen with her hair rolled up into chic chignons and buns. Now, with her short Diana-esque hairstyle, she looks even more sophisticated, and doesn't have to bother with an intricate updo to get her hair off her face!
This fancy hairstyle is pulled back and pinned to one side to form this fantastic updo perfect for any special occasion. This look will need time to re-create and product for hold and shine. What are your thoughts on Princess Charlene of Monaco? Does the princess outshine the duchess?
