Princess Charlene of Monaco is widely recognised as one of the best dressed royals in the world. The South African-born royal's immaculate style is defined by her refined elegance, luxurious taste and enviable fleet of designer garments. 

Since becoming a mother to twins Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, the wife of Prince Albert's sartorial prowess is a modest reflection of her senior position in the Monegasque royal family - but that doesn't mean the former Olympian can't have fun with her outfits!

Princess Charlene rocked a seriously daring cut-out midi dress dripping in crystals and sported her signature platinum blonde pixie cut. The royal, then in her thirties, looked phenomenal in the glitzy number which showed off her toned midriff.

Adding drama to her look, Princess Charlene rocked her low-cut slinky dress with a leather biker jacket and towering silver heels.

It's not the only time Princess Charlene has stolen the spotlight rocking head-to-toe sparkles. In the same year, the royal attended 69th Monaco Red Cross Ball Gala, one of the most glamorous occasions in the royal's calendar, and stunned in a spellbinding sequin jumpsuit.

Princess Charlene is a fan of sequins

Complimenting her sheer flared pantsuit, the royal wore her blonde cropped hair in a slick voluminous 'do and rocked daring smokey eyeshadow. And for this year's occasion, the former professional swimmer turned heads at the illustrious fundraising event in a spellbinding tunic dress layered with a sheer overlay adorned with glittering crystals.
