So it would seem like ALL of Bollywood showed up to launch designers Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla’s book. And like these things usually go there was a lot of bling, bandhgalas and Bachchans. Here’s how the evening looked from where we were sitting…
There’s a lot going on here in terms of the embroidery and colours which are always plenty in an Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla creation. And is that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a FORM FITTING kameez? Finally someone talked her out of those anarkalis. Have they stopped taking Abhishek out in public because he’s been a bit of a disappointment?
Now that, right there is the definition of an actor – talented and uninhibited. Tabu rarely makes fashion news – good or bad – but this one time she’s got it right. The kameez is heavily embroidered so she smartly skips the jewellery. The wild curls just add to everything.
The beautiful, soft yellow on Deepika Padukone gets its wicked edge courtesy those sparkly shoes for which I am willing to sell my tainted soul. The loose bun with the flower popped in it gives her a desi good girl vibe but lord, those shoes are something else. Will God forgive me if I pray for these tonight and not my family’s happiness?
Simi Garewal got to the shindig straight from mass. She stopped getting it right a long time ago. And what exactly is she wearing?
In my last post about Sussanne Roshan I blabbered on about how she almost gets a look right but there’s always something amiss. Well, looks like I’ve been proven right. Yes, modesty is one of my virtues. I love her dress. It’s got the bling that, basically, was a prerequisite at the event but if Deepika got her shoes bang on, Sussanne’s not could have been further from the mark. Her stylist probably suggested this pair so that it would not draw attention from the dress. But they look sad and beaten like they just ran a marathon in the rain.
When Kangana Ranaut received the invite that, I’m guessing, said that attire was strictly Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla, she flipped the bird and promptly ran to her three-room closet (a long standing fantasy of mine) and whipped out this highly inappropriate-for-the-event checked dress. Then to spite everyone she slipped on a pair of cat eye glasses. What got everyone’s goat was that while they had trouble during the bathroom break, Kangana just hopped on and hopped off like any other day.
