    Though both the designs are elaborate and busy, i still like the one on Aishwarya. She looks beautiful in the first pic. The hair, make up is all nicely done. Preity is lovely in that purple one but the suit makes her so top heavy and the arm comes off looking like a big attachment with that velvet overload.

      The ones they showed(some time back) of MM on the ramp were so gorgeous. Particulary the lehengas. Why aren’t bollywood ladies wearing any of those?

    What is his obsession with putting 6 inches of velvet borders on everything …. one or two is ok, but every single piece ….. no one likes those …. its one of the most criticised aspects of his work but still he persists

      i agreee..what is up with the velvet..maybe he has a secret velvet fetish!!! :)

    very common. one expects more subtlety from a designer of this caliber.

    hahaha this isn’t even “in-your-face sexy”

    Preity fares better in the busy-ness…but man…

    this kinda reminds me of the rules for accessories that movies of the 90s went against…you know, wearing the whole bangles, earrings, necklace, tikka look…wearing them all over dresses you didn’t need it on?

    Preity looks nice.
    Nice makeup on Aishwarya, not liking the suit with so many colors & the shape is also a bit weird. It looks like a bodysuit in the middle.

    Wow! Ash in the first pic looks like she’s just won her miss india title
    that aside, she looks lovely and radiant and keeps getting better with age

    Love, love the colour of Preity’s dress. It suits her so well, and she looks so pretty. Now if only there weren’t so many embellishments on the dress.

    Ash looks nice, wish we had close-ups. Just hate the velvet border on the dress. The dress, without the border, would have been Diwali festive.

    I’m just happy to see my two favorite bollywood ladies looking pretty and radiant as they always do….sorry I’m biased!

    The dresses are overwhelming

    both the ladies look radiant neck up…but Oh Boy Manish Malhotra has totally lost it…ban those velvets NOW!

    I can’t believe you didn’t put up full length pix of Preity. I would have loved to see what she chose for her footwear which in all probability would have been a welcome departure from all the eyesores others put us through.

    P&P, remind us again — when DID MM do subtle-sexy?! ;)

      MM’s designs for Madhuri in Dil to Pagal hai were very classy and subtle. The simple chiffon sarees, the pastel salwar kameez, etc were so fresh. Where is that MM now?

    Ash looks like she’s dressed for a dance performance. (remember those mughal-e-azam dances?) MM needs to lose this velvet fetish FAST. But on second thoughts, why would he? The celebs obviously love the velvet since they are overdosing on it.

    i love both of them…Preity just looks radiant…love it

    i dont understand if desi clothes are not gonna be over the top then wat is it gonna b?

    i love it when desi clothes are like that. it;s fun, happy nd colourful.

    Even the most garish clothes can be worked if the colours are in sync. Preitys complexion and hair work beautifully against that colour.
    But Ash’s hair clashes with everything, the brocade, the work, everything!!
    ps. on a side not unrelated – I love how Ash’s mendhi is still strong from karva chauth… no washing dishes for the rich and famous hey!

    Despite those overwrought clothes, both the ladies look very beautiful, esp. Ash. I love the darker color of her hair and the make up.

    Actually like Ash’s dress. Its looks good on her and is appropriate for this festive season.
    Happy Diwali everyone :)

    No thanks for making the most beautiful women look like PERSIAN CARPETS!!! Its too much to take…

  25. bongbabe at | | Reply

    does anybody know how much these “outfits” cost?

    Ash’s expressions are hilarious – so dramatically tacky and so hindi-film.
