66th Cannes Film Festival – Day 2

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on May 17, 2013

Cannes13-Freida2

After an adventurous Day 1, Indian celebrities brought in Day 2 with a lot of style. But it was Freida Pinto who took the cake on Day 2 with her vintage inspired look. Freida looked absolutely like a Hollywood starlet in this grey gown by ‘Sanchita’ topped with 1920s inspired hairstyle. One of her best looks so far at Cannes for sure.

Cannes13-Sonam3

Sonam Kapoor again surprised people in this voluminous ball gown by Dolce & Gabbana. Love the colour of the outfit plus the fact that Sonam kept the styling simple & let the print do all the talking. Though I am yet to see a look that makes me go ‘WOW’ but this is pleasantly different than her earlier red carpet looks.

Cannes13-Vidya10

Cannes13-Vidya11

The day is never gonna be complete without Vidya Balan’s red carpet appearance………..Ms. Balan who again opted for Sabysachi added alot of jewels by designer ‘Pankaj Surana’. Not a big fan of nathani on Vidya since it seems to be an extra add-on which was unnecessary. The look might have worked better without the nathani as the necklace looked alluring on this silhouette. As for the outfit…..no complains at all. No one could have made Vidya look so elegant as Sabysachi did.

66th Cannes Film Festival – Day 1

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on May 16, 2013

66th Cannes Film Festival went on floors with the star studded première of ‘The Great Gatsby’ where Mr. Amitabh Bachchan walked the red carpet with the cast of the movie.

Cannes13-AB2

But I was sorely disappointed to see him in a sequin studded dinner jacket…………truly wish he would have opted for a simpler silhouette than opt for too much of shine.

Cannes13-Vidya6

Vidya Balan was seen in a Sabyasachi Lehenga on the red carpet of the opening ceremony. The draping of the dupatta definitely spoilt the entire look………..wish the draping was done more neatly……..even better if Vidya would have worn the dupatta on the side & not covering her head. As for the jewels & the outfit I have no complains at all.

Cannes13-Vidya4

I loved the saree look of Vidya at the photocall of the Jury at Cannes. The look was by Sabyasachi & jewels by Amrapali but love the sophistication it had. Wish Vidya would have worn this look to the red carpet………….sigh.


Cannes13-Freida

Freida Pinto walked the red carpet in a sorbet pink colour Gucci gown…………..as for her petite frame I found the gown a bit too overwhelming plus the hairdo did not do any good to her look. Freida would have rocked the red carpet if she would have left her hair open and shortened the length of the gown a wee bit.

Cannes13-Sonam

Cannes13-Sonam2

Sonam Kapoor wore ‘Anamika Khanna’ & a nathani by ‘Sunita Kapoor’………..the lace saree was combined with a  beaded jacket. The look had a very international feel to it but I thought the nathani made the look ‘too desi’. A pair of studd earrings might have worked better. But we do know that we can only expect something new from Sonam every time she walks the red carpet. 


Cannes-FreidaSonam

Also spotted were Sonam & Freida together before walking the red carpet. The two beauty ambassador of  L’oreal did look fashionable. Sonam is wearing a saree by Huemn and earrings by Suhani Pittie.

Cannes13-Mallika

Mallika Sherawat in a golden colour gown & looking all polished was a shock to me since she did look pretty. Though not a fan of the gown but Mallika’s hair & make-up plus the way this entire look was put together was worth a note. Hope to see a classy Mallika emerge at future sightings on the red carpet.

L’oreal Paris Femina Women Awards 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on March 20, 2013

Starting since 2012, L’oreal Paris & Femina magazine have collaborated to honour Indian women who have made a difference to our society by their work. Women who have been achieved extraordinary feats in their lifetime were nominated for these awards. IFP takes you through the red carpet of this event held in Mumbai.

LFWA-Ash

Take a beautiful ‘Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna’ gown, have hair & make-up done………then pop in a day wear blazer to spoil the entire look………..that is what Aishwarya did at the event. Aishwarya who is always impeccably dressed seems to be eager to cover up her post baby body. It is a personal choice, but please don’t wear clothes that look like a tent on the red carpet.  Seriously I am disappointed this time around.

LFWA-Sonam

Sonam Kapoor dressed in ‘Atsu Sekhose’ gown and vintage hair + make-up walked the red carpet at the event. Though the lace bodice combined with printed skirt might not appeal in the very first look, but the styling got me convinced that Sonam did look beautiful. Love her shoes which were so understated but so fashionable.

LFWA-Aditi

Aditi Rao Hydari was dressed in ‘Anand Kabra’…….the hair & make-up teamed with the short anarkali looked good on Aditi but it was the salwar that bothered me. I wish Aditi had combined these anarkali with a pair of straight leg pants rather than these voluminous salwar.



LFWA-Mini

Mini Mathur decided to ditch her saree look and opt for a western look in this sheath dress which she combined with a ‘Bottega Veneta’ clutch, a funky neck-piece and golden heels. Black stilettos might have looked better with this outfit but Mini was able to carry this look of well.

LFWA-Neha

Neha Dhupia combined 2 designer pieces together for this look. ‘Anaikka’ top that had detail-work on the neckline & ‘Ranna Gill’ skirt. Now that was something new seen on the red carpet and I must say that Neha looked really good on the red carpet. Only few people can take fashion risks on the red carpet, Neha is sure one of IFP’s favourite.

LFWA-Shabana

Shabana Azmi was the red carpet surprise of the evening as she walked in wearing a ‘Manish Malhotra’ outfit. Love her new hairdo which made her look so fresh……..Shabana donned a bright pink colour which women at her age might shy away from, She looked elegant and IFP is loving Shabana’s look for the evening.

LFWA-Richa

Richa Chadda wore golden shimmer ‘Vizyon’ outfit  paired with matching heels………….I must say this is one of her good appearances on the red carpet since a long time. I do like her neat, sophisticated look which she worked well……..maybe a bit of ‘pop of colour’ was required but hey that is just me.

LFWA-Sakshi

Sakshi Tanwar also made an appearance at this event in a saree which had phulkari motifs at the border. Sakshi accessorized the look with earrings, kangan & a ring. She looked beautiful in this outfit and it is a relief that she stayed away from the usual beaded ‘soap opera’ style of saree.



LFWA-Vidya

Vidya Balan in her signature saree style attended the event but I am not in awe of her look which had too much printed combined in one outfit. The zari border print saree would have worked better if paired with a black blouse instead. Hope to see Ms. Balan in churidhar kurti look for a much awaited change.

Finale at India International Jewellery Week 2012

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on August 24, 2012

Highlights of the closing ceremony at IIJW 2012

‘Indian Fashion Police’ has crossed over 2 million visits and what better way to celebrate but with a new post that features beautiful ladies like Madhuri Dixit Nene & Sonam Kapoor. Both the bollywood Divas walked the runway at IIJW 2012. Madhuri & Sonam wore Anamika Khanna outfit but it was Madhuri all the way for me. She looked absolutely amazing in this outfit which spelt ‘royalty’ all the way plus the magnificent jewels from PC Jewellers completed the look.

PC Jeweller’s Balram Garg and Madhuri Dixit at the Finale show at IIJW.

Sonam Kapoor channelled the ‘Rajasthan’ with this look of hers. The jewels, the outfit and of course Sonam……..a perfect combination for the face of IIJW. Love!

Celebrity Hairstyles

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on July 5, 2012

Celebrities dress in their most stylish designer outfits on the red carpet, but many A-List celebs forget to style their hair that can make a huge difference to their looks. These days many women opt for poker straight hair which does look neat, but that is a trend which more than half the world is following. IFP lists downs four Indian celebrities who always have something new up their sleeve in terms of hairstyles. How they inspire us fashion wise and why they stand out on the red carpet? IFP explains you why………..

Bipasha Basu

Mirror, Mirror on the wall…………..who has the best hairstyle of all? Well if I were the mirror, ‘Bipasha’ would be the name that would echo from my mouth. Call me crazy about Bips but this lady has definitely set some standards on the desi red carpet. From straight layered hair to loose curls, she has a new look every single time she steps out of her house. Off late Bipasha has been seen sporting a side swept braid or ponytail along with her casual outfits. All of Bipasha’s hairstyle looks have been created by hairstylist Sapna Bhavnani…………be it the red hair extensions, short bob, side swept fringe……..we think Sapna continues to do an amazing work on this pretty lady.

Deepika Padukone

Deepika is not just a pretty face, but she gives a lot of emphasis to her hair. The brand ambassador of ‘Parachute’ haircare, Deepika is always spotted wearing different hairstyles, on & off the screen. Earlier she was seen in wavy hair that spelt beach look but the lady has been showing off more sophisticated hairdos at recent events. IFP loved to see Deepika in chignon on the Cannes red carpet that spelt ‘C-L-A-S-S’. She has been styled by many leading hairstylist in India, but the team of b:blunt have been her ‘go-to’ stylists. Deepika experiments with her hair a lot and usually wears them down. Her signature look would be the tousled wavy hair which goes well along with her casual look.

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka started out with the boring long hair but boy she is a delight to see on the red carpet. She made layers super trendy in the movie ‘Dostana’ and continues to pleasantly surprise us with her fierce hairstyles. She has thankfully ditched the bollywood style big hair and opted for sleeker looks. She even went short with an angled bob which made her look even more demure. These days one can see Priyanka sporting a bouffant ponytail for a casual do but she goes all glam with voluminous hair with loose curls for any big event. She has been styled by Javed Habib, Savio John Pereira and Sapna Bhavnani. IFP finds her gravitating more towards 1960s & 70s look for her recent appearances.

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam is not just about dressing up but also loves to experiment with her hairstyles. As a brand ambassador of L’oreal, she has the best team to create her new looks wherever she goes. She wowed us with her pinned up ringlet hairdo at Cannes 2011 dressed in a ‘Jean Paul Gaultier’ gown. Curls, twists, updos, finger waves, hair loops, vintage hair or even Victorian era hair………Sonam has tried all styles on her hair. IFP likes the look where her hair is styled away from her face in a sleek bun or a ponytail.

Cannes Film Festival 2012 – Finale

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on May 28, 2012

At the end of Cannes this year, IFP has been surprised by unexpected red carpet appearances…………..many new Indian celebs walking at this  event have made an impression fashionwise. So for the finally we finally got to see Sonam Kapoor on the red carpet………….was she able to take our breath away………let’s find out………

For the finale Sonam had opted for Alexander McQueen outfit that had left us with one question………………Why did she ever choose this outfit for the most prestigious red carpet event of the year???? She had Dior, Chanel, Naeem Khan, Valentino and so many other designers to select couture from but why this???

It’s not that we don’t like the gown but it does nothing to this brilliant fashionista……………the only saving grace is her hair & make-up. I wish Sonam would have opted for a structured gown that would do justice to her frame. This one is surely a forgettable look………..need more glamour factor.

Sonam Kapoor also made an appearance in a velvet ‘Dolce & Gabbana’ dress which was styled in a very vintage manner for the finale dinner. The hairband, the long earrings, all made the look classy. IFP likes it for sure……….this look was adventurous and better than her day look.

IFP also caught a Cannes look at Arjun Rampal & missus Mehr Jessia. Arjun looked absolutely like a prince in Rohit Bal’s Jodhpuri pants & jacket attire, but it was Mehr Jessia who stole the look in beautiful Tarun Tahiliani. As a couple IFP adores their red carpet ready look.

Cannes Film Festival 2012 – Day 9

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on May 25, 2012

Finally my wait is over…………..and I am delighted to see Aishwarya Rai Bachchan take on the Cannes red carpet for the 11th time in a row. Now that is a hell lot of experience for anyone. Aishwarya stunned us yet again with her style options this time around when she attended the amFAR’s  ‘Cinema against AIDS’ event at Cannes yesterday.

Aishwarya opted for a beautiful ‘Abu Jani – Sandeep Khosla’ ensemble which was a combination of a pastel color saree and a heavy detail work blouse. I am impressed at the ability of the designer to make Aishwarya look so beautiful in this Indian attire. I am in awe of the detail work on the blouse which had a lot of traditional zaridosi work and chikan-kari work on the saree……………..It was ‘Indianess’ at it’s best.

As for people concerned with Aishwarya’s weight issue…………….why consider it at all when she still looks this good. People please give some respect to a new mother who has many things on her mind apart from just looking good. Find a better way to waste your time than to discuss such petty issues since we all face similar things at some point of time.

So far this has been my favourite appearance at Cannes 2012. IFP also spotted Aishwarya in a more casual appearance for a photo shoot at Cannes.

Aishwarya opted for ‘Angelo Katsapis’ outfit for daytime………..the black and white ensemble put together with side swept hair. Simple yet very international.

Among other Indian celebrities, IFP spotted Kalki Koechlin in a ‘Sabyasachi’ outfit, clutch and hair accessory. The bejewelled hair band might seem a bit out of place but I still feel no one could have carried off it so well with an Indian outfit as well as Kalki did. IFP likes her style on the red carpet and the fact that she is different from the other usual pouting celebs.

Sonam Kapoor looked pretty in a Naeem Khan polka dot outfit while attending the Chopard & L’oreal bash at Cannes. She added a pop of color with a burgundy clutch. IFP likes her classy look in this outfit and wish to see her in more ‘Naeem Khan’ looks in future.

Mallika Sherwat was also at the amFAR event, I feel she has found an affinity towards the pastels and nude colors. She was dressed in Ali Mahdavi outfit that had a hoodie………………but I am surprised that she could carry this off with such an ease.  The vintage style hair and make-up add the much needed glamour to this outfit and she looks much better all covered up……..:-) IFP gives this look of Mallika a thumbs up and appreciates her effort for trying something new on the red carpet every single time.

Cannes Film Festival 2012 – Day 4 & 5

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on May 22, 2012

After the hype created by Freida Pinto on the red carpet, there has not been anymore Indian celeb spotting on the red carpet that would have made us sit upright and take notice. Mallika Sherawat who should have created the buzz after Freida, seems to have been gone unnoticed by the shutter-bugs.


Mallika Sherawat wore a nude color gown with a sexy back and gave a peek of her bosom, but does it impress us fashionwise…………….. unfortunately not. The hair is too big, the outfit lacks class and just not fond of the skinshow either ways.

On the other hand, Sonam Kapoor attended the Gucci-Vanity Fair Party in Gucci ensemble, beautiful earrings and hair styled short which pratically destroyed the entire look. Still waiting to see the full length pics of hers to decide if this look worked or not???

Right now I am just thinking if Aishwarya Rai Bachchan would bring in some refreshing change on the red carpet. Sigh….

L’oreal Paris – Femina Awards 2012

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on March 24, 2012

L’oreal Paris collaborated with India’s leading magazine ‘Femina’ for an award event this week. The event was held in a fashionable style at the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai. Here is a look at the red carpet of the event.

Priyanka Chopra wore a ‘Gauri-Nainika’ outfit for the award event in fuchsia color. She toned down the look with white open toe pumps and sparkling diamond earrings to give the entire focus on this lovely color. IFP loves this look and thinks that Priyanka rocked on the red carpet.

 Sonam Kapoor never fails to surprise me on the red carpet………………..the fact that we love her is simply because she is always different than the rest of the crowd yet looks fabulous in any ensemble. At the L’oreal Paris – Femina Awards, Sonam opted for a beautiful Anamika Khanna saree combined with an interesting blouse that had a lot of detail work. We are loving this red hot look on Sonam………

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was also at the event with mama Vrinda Rai where both mother-daughter got the award for being the ‘Woman of Substance’. Aishwarya was spotted in a geometric print churidhar while Vrinda Rai opted for a graceful pink saree. Not a fan of Aishwarya’s look since the big prints made her look much more heavier than she actually is………..as for her baby weight, every new mum has the right to enjoy motherhood and shed weight leisurely………..so why let Aishwarya be any different.

Lara Dutta also made her red carpet appearance in a beautiful ‘Rocky S’ saree. The pista green with a golden saree made her look pretty as ever and the new mum definitely glowed on the red carpet. Like the look and will wait for her future red carpet appearances eagerly.

First look at Ms. Ranaut and you are taken back to the 1960s era where Audrey Hepburn ruled the fashion scene with her style. The LBD combined with a signature ‘Dior’ bag, nude open toe pumps and a pearl neckpiece is very vintage but unfortunately I cannot find our very own Kangna in it. Honestly I think channelling a style icon through your dressing is like paying  a ‘Tribute’ to them, but loosing yourself in their style is a threat to your own fashion existence.

Dia Mirza opted for ‘Anita Dongre’ design in blue & white. She combined the weave design with silver accessory and a basic black clutch…..unfortunately the look would have been better for a dinner party or evening out with friends. For the red carpet, wish Dia would have gone a bit more glamorous.

Is it just me or does this pretty lady always turn up well on the red carpet at every event. Sophie Choudry looked gorgeous in this ‘Ramona Garware’ gown in fuchsia pink combined with a black & pink fancy clutch. IFP gives her two thumbs up to Sophie for always being so stylish and elegant at the same time.

Green was the color of choice for Queenie at the event…………….the fish scale detailing with a glittery clutch and basic black open toe pumps work for her well. She wears this Diane Von Furstenberg outfit well and after a long time have I seen her look pretty on the red carpet. IFP likes it mainly because of the rich emerald color…

Model Dipannita Sharma went the more adventurous with this ‘Masaba Gupta’ saree in camera print. Funky prints are surely ‘in’ this summer season and Dipannita surely wears this outfit well. Just wish she had skipped the metallic hue clutch and opted for wooden bangle instead to complete her look.

Actress Poorna Jagannathan opted for an elegant ‘Dior’ gown and a monochrome clutch in B/W to match with the outfit. After a series of red carpet miss outs for Poorna, it was pleasant to see her look beautiful on the red carpet. IFP is all eyes for her…….:-)

Best Dressed 2011

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on December 1, 2011

Every year ‘Indian Fashion Police’ picks out the ‘Best Dressed’ people in India. Had many celebs on my mind who stood out on the red carpet but only few managed to make it to this list. We tell you why these people made it to this list, so here goes….’BEST DRESSED 2011′

Sonam Kapoor

This pretty lady has made us proud at Cannes 2011 with her choices which stood out of the usual. She is fresh, ready to experiment with her looks and head-to-toes a style diva. I love her fashion choices so much that I am featuring her in this list second time in a row. Sarees, Anarkali, gown, trousers, dress…………dress her up in any outfit and she makes it rock.

 

Imran Khan

Men in Bollywood have competition when it comes down to style………….Imran who is from this generation of actor not only entertains well on the silver screen but dresses well on the red carpet. His style is young, sophisticated and fun……….all at one which he always manages to get right. This year we have seen Imran in a bandhgala during his wedding, suits, tuxedos, casual wear and managed to rock every ensemble……that’s why he makes it to this list.

 

Sophie Choudry

Surprise, surprise………….Sophie Choudry who lately has been seen more on the red carpet this year was one of the few women who knew what looks good on her. Her emphasis is always more on the outfit while aceesories & shoes are kept simple. She is one of the few celebs whose dressing style does not scream for attention. She carries every silhouette with utmost ease and grace.

Freida Pinto

She has been making waves in Hollywood………..not just for her films, but for her red carpet appearances. She is young, smart and very fashionable when it comes to her style. Love the designer outfits she chooses everytime she has to attend a big event………..the hair, the accessories, the outfit and the shoes……….she gets it all right.

Twinkle Khanna

Mrs. Khiladi, we are a fan of your style……..despite leaving movies, Twinkle still manages to grab attention on every red carpet event for the outfits that she wears. Now here is someone who dresses her age and thankfully is not obsessed with looking like a teenager. Twinkle’s style is all about color……..she surprises you by wearing the most bright color and she looks absolutely stunning in it. She picks up the most classic outfits that do just to her body, adds in a bit of bling and voila……….Twinkle to ready to make heads turn. And oh she also has Akshay Kumar as her arm candy at these events…………….do we need any more reasons not to feature her here??

 

Siddhartha Mallya

Siddhartha Mallya might be just starting out with his appearances on the red carpet but he sure looks good. He takes dressing up quite seriously be it a casual party, a major event or a cricket match. He is young and has a long way to go before he is a bonafide celebrity, but for now I have a feeling he will make a lasting impression when it is about fashion.

Dia Mirza

If I was ever asked to define the looks of a princess, Dia would be my answer. Sweet, elegant and charming lady knows how to dress well for every occasion. She can carry off pastels with the same grace as any bright color. I have never seen her dress like a christmas tree unlike many celebs………..her style is minimalistic & classic. Plus she always has a smile on her face which is the best accessory.

 

Rahul Khanna

Rahul Khanna might not be that big on the movie scene, but he sure knows how to impress the ladies with his style. I admire the way this man takes risks with his fashion choices. Who else can carry a shiny dinner jacket and still look awesome. Even when he hosts any event, he looks way better than the top celebrities. ‘Effortless’ is the word I use to describe his sense of style.

Celebrities who work the ‘Gown’ trend

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on November 14, 2011

Bipasha Basu

Bipasha Basu should be known as ‘The Body’ of Bollywood as this lady has transformed herself  from flab to fab and continues to do better. She looked amazing on the red carpet whenever she has donned a gown…………she has the grace and of course the looks to carry off  this silhouette with utmost ease. Hence she makes it to our list of the Bollywood celebs who work the gown trend so fabulously.

Freida Pinto

Freida Pinto who has been making waves in Hollywood for her style and looks, definitely does justice to the ‘Gown’ trend. Her choices of designers as well as the color & the ‘fit’ of the gown. IFP does give 2 thumbs up for this lady who has the poise to carry off a gown and is able to woo everyone on the International red carpet.

Dia Mirza

She might not have many Bollywood ‘hits’ under her belt, but she is definitely a ‘Hit’ when it comes to her look on the red carpet. She makes the simplest silhouette look amazing on the red carpet. The hair is perfect, the  jewelry awesome, the dress is gorgeous………..sheer perfection. That is why she makes it to this list.

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam made us proud with her choice of ‘Jean Paul Gaultier’ gown at the Cannes and continnues this trend at home too. Dress her up in any designer creation and she carries it off flawlessly. Plus her selection of accessories, shoes and clutch are ‘to die for’. A true fashionista, she can transform from ‘Vintage’ to ‘Contemporary’ in no time. She always adds that elemnt of ‘fun’ in every look of hers and has been the most refreshing change on the red carpet.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

She was the first ‘Indian’ celebrity to walk the Cannes red carpet wearing a gown and evven after 10 years she works this trend fabulously. Aishwarya made other ladies take this silhouette more seriously since her Miss World days and has experimented with so many styles. From Armani Prive to Roberto Cavalli………..he has dressed in the best designer ensemble and turned heads everywhere she went. I don’t think this list would be complete without her.

Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone who was a model before she entered Bollywood, looks alluring in any gown. Her tall, slender stature is best suited for this silhouette. She has tried many gown styles like one shoulder, off-shoulders, halter neckline and we have digged every single look of hers. She has also walked down the runway in numerous gown creations by the leading designers of India.

Hello! Hall of Fame Awards 2011

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on November 10, 2011

Hello! magazine had organized ‘Hall of Fame’ Awards at the Trident hotel in Mumbai and all the fame monsters made their presence felt wearing the most stylish designer. A glimpse of the red carpet of this event.

Deepika Padukone looked red hot in this feiry red ensemble by designer ‘Gauri-Nainika’………the structured hair do, the make-up and the dress of course, all looked fabulous. L-O-V-E this look…………..this is what celebs should look like when they walk down the red carpet at any award event.

Kajol walked the red carpet in a ‘Manish Malhotra’ saree but had me on the earrings which were somehow not looking well co-ordinated with the outfit. Wish she would have opted for chandelier jadau earrings and cut out the net sleeves. The saree though was a pretty one. The clutch is of ‘Malaga’ by Malini Agarwala who has also featured in our ‘Interview with Designer’

SRK who I think would be dressed in a Karan Johar-Varun Bahl creation worked the 3-piece suit well. I dig his choice of sleek suits which are always well fit and stylish. Black remains his color of choice but how about trying Monochromatic prints for a change?

Sonam Kapoor walked the red carpet in a Gucci gown which somehow felt flat on this lovely lady. Have seen Sonam do better but here the  ‘out-of-place’ hair spoils the entire look plus the oversized clutch is no good either. Wish Sonam would have opted for a pulled back hairdo and a glittery tiny clutch for complete her look.

Karisma knows how to stunn fashionistas when she walked in wearing this LBD. She remains my eternal favorite celeb who knows what actually looks good on her. The pulled back hair works well plus the make-up is subtle. Karisma is looking every bit ‘Divalicious’. See her full length pic below and be a judge about the looks of the 2 pretty ladies

Women love men who are always sharply dressed………………………..no wonder why we cannot get enough of Rahul Khanna. Only he could carry off this shiny grey jacket and make it look so good. Me liking this look…………and you?

Jacqueline Fernandez wore a ‘Givenchy’ feather dress with a lace belt but funnily even her hairdo is styled like the feathers. She looks stylish and does absolute justice to this outfit. Like it……..

Madhoo in a ‘Herve Leger’ outfit but the bright color clutch is quite a distraction. The print ‘Herve Leger’ is enough to grab attention……………..the ‘pop of color’ was not needed. Other things aside,  Madhoo does look good in this outfit.

Queenie Singh in a ‘Jatin Varma’ dress certainly looks good. Thank god she did not opt for one of those short dresses……..this print dress from Jatin Varma’s  recent collection compliments her body yet makes her look like a ‘Diva’………..Way to go Queenie.

Gayatri Oberoi wore a black off shoulder gown with emerald jewelry but the improper fit of the silhouette marred the entire look for this beautiful lady. Plus the accessories and the clutch are not of much help too. But I do like the fact that Gayatri dresses up very gracefully on the red carpet.

F1 Rocks After Party

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on October 31, 2011

The buzz of Grand Prix Formula one is on a high in India with the opening of Lap Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida. It is for sure a glorious moment for racing sports in India and to celebrate this event UTV stars had organised the After-party at the racing venue. Lady Gaga was there to entertain the guests which had the creme-de-la-creme of the Page 3 world. We had to get the glimpse of red carpet to you………..

Deepika Padukone was all sparkle on the red carpet at this event and looked ‘H-O-T’………the sequin dress with a nude open toe heels and a tiny clutch. The hair, the dress, the shoes…………………love the look for such a fashionable event.

Perky Sonam Kapoor came in with designer Manish Arora wearing one of his designed creations. I am for sure not digging this look since the sequin dress is paired with golden leaf earrings…………..it is somewhat appears like a mis-match. The look was vintage inspired, but a more demure look would have suited the theme of the event. The pretty dress ought to have been paired with a crystal neck piece or eye-catching accessory. Though Sonam This is too plain on the lovely Sonam…………..sigh.

King Khan who must be definitely on a high post the success of Ra.One, looked pretty tired when he came to this event. Wonder the travel promoting his film did take a toll on him………….he is in a 3 piece black suit……….same old in black………..SRK please give us some color.

Preity Zinta also went the sequin mode with satin gloves…………now tell me who wears a satin gloves these days?? Even Brides have chucked this accessory………PZ wanted to make a style statement but sadly this look falls flat. Wish she would have donned a gothic look to rock the red carpet.

Lady Gaga performed at the after-party wearing a ‘Tarun Tahiliani’ outfit and a veil………………this outfit which has been seen in a saree version on the red carpet, was modified in a shorter version. But the net stocking with the ankle-length boots………let’s face it with Lady Gaga, nothing should be surprise people anymore.

Bipasha Basu came in a Falguni-Shane Peacock outfit which had a trail behind……………Like the short version from the front, but the trail seems unnecesary. The hair would have looked better in a pulled back look………I do appreciate Bips for the fact that she experiments with her outfit choices and has the guts to flaunt it on the red carpet.

Actor Imran Khan made an appearance with wife Avantika where surprisingly Avantika took the limelight in the style section as Imran donned a sloppy look. The sweater with a tie and denims with a stubble are ‘no-no’ on the red carpet. Imran we love your look in a crisp suit, this one is way too lame. As for wifey, love the sophisticated look combined with a stylish animal print clutch.
