Beauty secrets behind Charlene's princess bride look

Monday July 4, 2011

Princess Charlene, in keeping with her trademark style, chose a simple and understated look on the day she stepped into Monaco’s royal circle.

She wore a low, deconstructed chignon and subtle make-up to match her beautiful Armani gown.

And her unassuming look allowed her natural beauty to take centre stage.

The bride opted for a simple veil, forgoing a tiara.

Instead she sported a silver, floral encrusted brooch in her hair, lent to her by Princess Caroline. has asked professional make-up artist and creative director David Manilo to give us the lowdown on Charlene’s simple yet sophistcated look.

David said: “Her hairstyle was quite straightforward.

"At the front where she lacked a tiara they’d taken a lock from the front right hand side and swept it across her forehead.” 

“Meanwhile, the back of the hairstyle was a low bun wound with loose curls, crowned with a glittering hairpiece in the form of a bouquet of flowers which attached at the nape."
