Style Speculation: Chanel Spring 2012 RTW

Chanel is one of those lines that you know will always include some princess-appropriate options - it's just in the blood - and Karl Lagerfeld's icy dream of a collection doesn't disappoint. Though we are most guaranteed to see the line on firm Lagerfeld favorites Caroline and Charlotte, loads of royal ladies have at least a little bit of Chanel in their closet. And that makes our little speculating game all the more fun...

Chanel Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear
Potential royal models:
Charlotte Casiraghi, Princess Caroline
The above styles I think are candidates for Princess Astrid of Belgium and Infanta Elena, and maybe even Princess Charlene; after choosing Mr. Lagerfeld for her civil wedding ensemble, I'm hoping we'll get a little Chanel in with her Armani/Akris mix. They'd also be great on Queen Sofia or Queen Paola, and if we could get any of our Natan princesses to switch camps for this stuff instead I'd do so many jumpy claps I'd probably hurt myself.
This set of looks I'd love to see on the younger royals that have a little more fun with their style. Charlotte Casiraghi to be sure, but also Princess Beatrice or Princess Madeleine. Maybe even Charlene, if she really means what she says about turning Monaco into a fashion capital.

See the whole collection here.
