Princess Charlene and Prince Albert wished their Instagram followers a happy New Year as they shared a short video clip to social media. Charlene looked stunning in a sparkling dress.
For the New Year’s video, Charlene opted for a brand new dress from Swiss fashion label Akris.
Charlene owns many garments from this brand, but this sleeveless, floor-length dress was new.
Called the Metallic Lurex Cotton Crochet Embroidery Gown in Silver Ecru, the dress costs €5,490 on the Akris website, or £4,865.
Charlene kept the rest of her look simple – with her peroxide hair slicked back in its usual style.
She said: “Princess Charlene is undoubtedly a huge supporter and fan of Akris. She loves wearing their clothes and despite being quite a private royal, she has uncharacteristically publicly praised the Swiss Fashion House.
“It’s easy to understand why. Akris is a prestigious and truly authentic third-generation family-owned business. A rare gem in an industry where so many great fashion houses have been bought by huge corporate entities.”
Royal fans commented on Charlene’s look, with many praising her, while one was unsure of the colour of the dress.

However, user @scarfie1 said: “I do wish Charlene would wear some colour all these monotones wash her out. Okay she may not feel like colour but a pastel would be nicer. She never looks truly happy, definitely a troubled woman.
“Pity the children are dressed in black/grey.”
The royal watcher added: “Wish the children didn’t wear black and grey. They’re not children colours.”
User @frog06000 added: “Very dark and serious ‘grown up’ clothes on the children. Not a fan.”
Rosie McGuire, however, said that Princess Gabriella’s outfit was “cute”. She added: “She’s adorable.”
Gabriella was dressed in an Armani two-piece – her jacket and dress were matching.
The jacket, called the Kids Cropped Bouclé Jacket, featured a collar and a zip.
The dress, on the other hand, had a black bodice with a grey neckline and a grey skirt.
