Royal Outfits of the Day: May 17

These two outfits don't really have anything in common, other than the fact that they are bright. Bright and discussion-worthy...

Princess Charlene launched the American branch of the Princess Charlene Foundation in California last week.
Is this why Charlene wears the neutrals all the time, so that when she does bust out a bright color, it will knock you right over? Because this stopped me in my tracks. Orange! What a fabulous color for her, and the sleek cut of the dress is right up her alley.

The dress is another surprise, a Roland Mouret design instead of one of her regular labels. Her Los Angeles trip was pretty much all RM ensembles, actually (see galleries here and here), which prompted me to spend no less than 20 seconds googling (#research) whether they're a sponsor of the charity. No matter - I want to see more.

Elsewhere around the globe, Crown Princess Mary seemed to be wearing a basic blue dress, not too remarkable but a great strong, bright color anyway. Or so I thought...
Crown Princess Mary attended a reception at the Australian ambassador's residence for the Copenhagen Women Deliver conference.

The jumpsuits and the culottes have united, and they're coming for us all. Save yourselves.
