Princess Charlene Rivals Kate Middleton As Most Glamorous Royal (PHOTO)

Kate Middleton better watch out because there's another royal who is nipping at the heels of her stylish crown!

Princess Charlene of Monaco made quite the entrance at Ralph Lauren's first runway show in Paris on Tuesday, which was a repeat of his Fall 2013 runway show.

The beautiful blond took the Duchess of Cambridge to the task wearing a floor-sweeping purple Ralph Lauren gown which featured a fitted bodice and a fishtail skirt.

Of course, no princess is complete without gobs of jewellery and the former Olympic swimmer didn't disappoint by wearing large gold-and-silver earrings, a matching bejeweled bracelet and a royal purple clutch.

Unfortunately, husband Prince Albert wasn't by his wife's side to witness her flawless appearance but we're sure he was busy with, oh you know, running a kingdom.

Since the prince couldn't board his private jet to Paris, we would have loved to see Prince George's mum as Charlene's date. Kate recently made a dazzling appearance at the Tusk Foundation Gala wearing a sparkly Jenny Packham gown which would have easily fit in with Charlene's fashion crowd.

Wouldn't you love to see the two princesses side-by-side showing off their glamorous gowns?
