Princess Charlene of Monaco attended the Red Cross Gala in Monte Carlo on Friday, dressed in a shiny blue strapless gown with a layered top in front, much to the delight of fashionistas.

Princess Charlene, who was accompanied by her husband Prince Albert II of Monaco and his sister Princess Caroline of Hanover, walked the red carpet with her customary style and elegance. The 35-year-old princess, a former South African Olympic swimmer, completed her plain satin ensemble with a minimal number of accessories.

These included a pair of diamond chandelier earrings and very subtle eye makeup, in tints of blue. She also sported her latest look, the cropped hairdo. Charlene has been sporting a pixie cut for more than a year now, after she had her straight tresses swept back to form buns and a brief flicked hairdo.
