In the lives of royals, one’s never too young to wear Dior! Princess Charlene of Monaco had the French label design the christening gowns for her adorable twins at their baptism on Sunday (May 10). This was one of many details the hands-on mom planned for the special day.
Charlene decided upon Baby Dior for her little ones, and made the sweet move to wear the same high-end French designer as her son Prince Jacques and her daughter Princess Gabriella.
According to HOLA!, the fashion house created bespoke outfits for the twins, which consisted of long, flowing cotton gowns that came with matching bonnets.
Only the finest would do for Prince Albert and Princess Charlene’s children, and the dresses were finished off with delicate pleating, Calais lace trimming and floral embroidery.
Adding a personal touch to the outfits – and allowing well-wishers to distinguish the five-month-old twins – Jacques and Gabriella’s respective monograms were sewn onto the gowns.
Each baby also had a personalised dummy bearing their own name, with Gabriella given a pink one and her brother Jacques a blue one.
The day may have been centred on Monaco’s royal darlings, but doting mum Charlene also took centre stage. The South African beauty, whose family had flown over for the special ceremony, looked radiant in a skirt-and-jacket ensemble by Dior Haute Couture.
Charlene stayed true to her chic minimalist style, opting for a cropped, three-quarter length sleeve top and matching fifties-style skirt. The royal seemed to be channelling her husband’s late mother Grace Kelly, by wearing elegant netted gloves, a pillbox hat and drop pearl earrings.
Royal fans were quick to note how overjoyed Charlene looked on her children’s special day. The former Olympic swimmer was moved to tears during the ceremony, when her son was first christened over the baptismal font, followed by her daughter.
The affectionate mum enjoyed a moment with her twins at the end of the service, when she was seen bending down to the tots who were being carried by their nannies, and cooed and showered them with kisses.
Following the baptism, Charlene and Albert presented their twins to the people of Monaco on the steps of the cathedral, after which the babies were driven back to the palace while the new parents travelled by foot, greeting members of the public along the way.
