IIFA doesn’t have a RED Carpet, it has a GREEN carpet, and I’m sure there’s some pretentious environmental reason for this, because the only alternative is that it’s green because it’s a little sick of being yet another award show. So, what did they sport at Bollywood’s Best Reason to Travel to Some Phoren Place En Masse? Let’s take a look:
In Arpita Mehta
In my eyes, Madhuri Dixit can do no wrong. That’s why I killed Simon Cowell yesterday and borrowed his eyes so that I could do this objectively. I know na, I am THAT dedicated what to do yaar. Anyhoo, Mads, this doesn’t work for me, sweets. The print overwhelms the embellishments overwhelm the colour, and that hair is decidedly blah. I don’t think you have what it takes to become American Idol. BOLLOCKS. LOO. KNICKERS. Okay I am done.
I like Amrita Rao’s stylist. She tries. She *really* tries. I mean, this isn’t half-bad, but I don’t know about the hair, which has a very mane-y feel to it. Like I am expecting her to start singing Circle of Life any minute now.
He deserves a mention simply because suede bow tie? Such a cool touch to creatively mix up a boring old suit. Very like.
Maybe it’s just me, but if I have to stare at a bodice for five minutes just to figure out what the hell is going on with it, it better at least be a Sudoku puzzle. Also, her clutch is disappearing into her dress, like a two-year-old afraid of leaving mommy. So, I guess what I am trying to say is, the hair, the tulle, just. NO.
Only Shahrukh can make an arm sling look effortlessly sexy.
Jacqueline Fernandes in Roberto Cavalli.
I like how Abhishek Bachchan’s shadow is trying to protect Jacqueline Fernandes’ modesty… LOL J/K IT’S PARALYZED BECAUSE SOMEONE GAVE IT AN AWARD. But I digress. That is a GREAT dress on her, and the hair and make up are top-notch. Well done, Jacq. Have a Jadoo ki Jhappi on me.
A better pic.
I knew they were bringing the wooly mammoth back from extinction, but I never thought it would be so soon.
