One of our favorite royals-to-be, Charlene Wittstock, stepped out at Aras an Uachtarain in Dublin, Ireland on Monday along with her fiance Prince Albert II Of Monaco and Irish President Mary McAleese and her husband Martin.
And it appears that Char (can we call you that?) brought back the tailcoat -- wearing a black number we'd love to borrow over an oatmeal-colored pantsuit. She accessorized with an embellished and tasseled clutch.
In the evening, she donned a slate gray, one-shouldered gown to attend a State Dinner at President McAleese's residence.
Take a look and tell us what you think.
