The ever-elegant Princess Charlene of Monaco stepped out at the star-studded Red Cross Gala on Friday evening, and as usual, she didn't disappoint with her stunning formal gown! For this year's event, she chose to stand out in a vivid green Marchesa Notte number, with a gorgeous caped silhouette that's certainly royally-approved - the likes of the Duchess of Sussex, Queen Letizia of Spain and the Duchess of Cambridge are all fans of the look, too. Charlene also noticeably went for a beachy blonde updo - perfect for a hot summer's night!

The princess enlisted the help of one of her favourite hairdressers, Stephane Madinier, for the party - who memorably did her hair for her royal wedding back in 2011. Makeup artist Rubi Long was responsible for her flawless beauty look, which she kept light and natural with a peachy nude lip. As for jewels, Charlene chose to repeat her Repossi drop earrings, which feature statement pearls.

This year's choice is quite the world away from the royal's 2018 look, when she arrived at the gala in a plunging Versace gown covered in glittering beading. Another modern detail to her look was a diamond ear cuff, which she teamed with a winding bangle-style bracelet as her only jewellery pieces – letting her dramatic dress do most of the talking.

It looks like colour was the theme of 2019's gala, however, since a number of the star-studded guests arrived in bold gowns. French actress Karin Viard looked incredible in a colour-clashing purple and pink gown, while Princess Constance of Bourbon-Parme also chose a bold purple ballgown. Shirley Bassey also made a glamorous appearance in green, while John Legend was also amongst the star-studded guest list, performing on the night. Another special moment came when Albert and Charlene took to the dancefloor for a spin, as per tradition - it looks like the royal couple had the best time!
