Princess Charlene Glitters In Gold, Has Fashion Battle With German President's Partner

Who? Princess Charlene of Monaco

Where? During a state visit to Berlin, Germany

What? The Princess of Monaco - accompanying her husband, Prince Albert II of Monaco - went all out for a state dinner in Berlin last night, arriving in an utterly elegant gold brocade gown.

Unfortunately for Charlene, Daniela Schadt, the partner of the German President, had also opted to wear a golden gown for the evening - hers a lace-sleeved taffeta ball gown.

Well, it's a brave woman that goes up against Princess Charlene in a fashion battle and comes out fighting.
