Chanel Dresses at the Royal Wedding
Chanel was the royal family's designer of choice at this weekend's wedding in Monaco. Two of Prince Albert's nieces wore Chanel dresses, which were both incidentally worn before by Hollywood celebrities. I find this quite strange, as these princesses-in-waiting have access to the world's best couture collections and the most exclusive designs. Why would they chose to wear outfits that were previously worn, and to Monaco's most anticipated event in the last 50 years?
Charlotte Casiraghi, daughter of Princess Caroline, wore a Chanel Spring Couture 2011 dress to her uncle, Prince Albert's wedding this Saturday. The blush pink off-the-shoulder dress has a tiered skirt, pearl buttoned bodice and black bow on the hip. Actress Diane Kruger first wore the dress almost 6 months ago, to a gala in Paris. Both ladies paired the dress with black clutch bags and high black heels. Charlotte's sandals are by YSL and Diane's are Jimmy Choo. I think Diane looks more polished, as the dress fits her better.
Pauline Ducruet, daughter of Princess Stephanie attended the wedding in a dress from Chanel's Spring 2011 RTW line. The sky blue fringed tweed dress has a Lemarié feather trim skirt. Emma Roberts wore the dress first in March, during Paris Fashion Week. Both girls paired the dress with white clutch bags. Pauline wore strappy white sandals and a skinny belt, while Emma chose metallic silver Brian Atwood heels. Emma rocks this dress, she has the personality to pull it off.
