The phrase 'fit for a princess' has never been more apt.
Princess Charlene of Monaco took show-stopping to a whole new level on Wednesday evening when she attended the Princess Grace Awards in New York.
Dressed in a sumptuous Ralph Lauren gown complete with ruffled regal collar, Charlene looked like she'd just wandered out of an 18th century banquet, in the nicest possible sense of course.
In terms of accessories, Charlene smartly kept them to a minimum in the form of a diamond bracelet. And her hair? Her blonde locks were swept into a sleek chignon, allowing the dress to make maximum impact.
Jaw-dropping doesn't even begin to do this look justice. We'd love to see Duchess Catherine giving this sort of style a whirl.
