Gold Metal Style
If you haven't already rushed out and bought the July 2011 issue of Vogue, I suggest you grab it post haste. In addition to the lovely spread on cover girl Emma Watson, there was also a very interesting piece on princess-to-be Charlene Wittstock.

(Note: I did NOT say ugly. I said unconventional. And much more gripping than that damn boring Kate Middleton.) Here's an excerpt:
"I want to make Monaco one of the fashion capitals of the world. It would be wonderful to team up with some of my international fashion friends, like Stella McCartney and Ralph Lauren, and get the place buzzing with energy again... Grace Kelly forged a link between Monaco and the movie world, and I would like to create a strong bond between Monaco and the fashion community."
