At the 2013 Princess Grace Awards Gala held yesterday in New York, the former South African Olympian swimmer turned royal was stunning in a rich dark-green taffeta gown, complete with an impressive ruffled high collar, by Ralph Lauren. Princess Charlene of Monaco looked the part of her fancy title and appeared poised and statuesque in the shapely dress. With her short blonde hair gelled back and a warm smile brightening her face, Princess Charlene looked every bit as lovely as her beloved mother-in-law.
