In Elie Saab

82

As part of her brand ambassador duties, Ms. Rai attended the 163 Prix de Diane Longines race in Chantilly, France today. The actress paired a peach Elie Saab dress with a sequined loose jacket (also by Saab).

As exquisite as the jacket is, I wish that Ash had paired it with a more fitted dress than a flared one. The combo makes her look so much bigger than she actually is. The color, though, looks beautiful on her.

    • There is something abt this look that is actually making me stop and appreciate her beauty!! I mean most of the time when I see her pic on HHC I take it for granted that she has a beautiful face and my attention is grabbed by either something that she is wearing or her hair color etc.
      This time, her face stands out !! Maybe because the color is suiting her?
      Maybe she looks really comfortable in that dress?
      Maybe no redcarpet pose?
      Maybe she is well rested & relaxed?
      Or
      Maybe I finally got over my jealousy and accepted the
      fact that I am not going to be called the world’s most
      beautiful woman (No, not even by DH… His vote goes to Ash…)
      :D

      • Thank you Desimon! When it comes to Ash, I always feel that it’s more a case of jealously than anything else… I am not a big fan, i dont agree with many of her clothing choices, infact her jacket here is huge, but I wont deny the fact that the color looks fabulous on her, the hair, makeup and the hat look great and she looks relaxed. ( if I were her,I would be saddened by the fact that so many women choose to make the most irrational, unkind, vitriolous comments on her clothing choices…no breaks for her:))

    • Can’t agree with you more!she is just drowning in that attire..and she poses really awkwardly..at Cannes n here! She does such a deservice to herself. A huge dislike:(

  1. though the color looks nice, the hat should have been different color say white or rose pink, to breakup the all peach look.

    • The whole look is very similar to what Fan Bing Bing wore at Elie Saab Fall 2011.
      (The makeup & blush somehow reminds me of a ‘jokers’ makeup :-) )

  2. hat is nice. but big hat plus big dress , plus shiny jacket, and heavy makeup like that for the racetracks is really over the top. her style reminds me of an italian granny going to a wedding reception.

  3. i agree about the fit (pregnant perhaps?). the hat is so lovely, but she’s not owning the look. it’s like the hat is wearing her and not the other way around.
    her face on the other hand is a whole different story. so ethereal and beautiful!

  4. She’s nailed it. So gorgeous. So ethereal. Lovely. I simply love the colour on her. Don’t think it makes her look big. She has a beautiful, healthy body. She isn’t the skinny type. Thank god for that.

  5. the jacket is indeed beautiful…for my 64 year old grandmother. this reminds me of the time lara dutta looked like mother teresa during her wedding day.
    i mean you are rich enough to own a mirror…use it.

  7. Color looks great on her e..though its matchy-much for me…dress shoes ,makeup..everythig same color.
    She is looking too mature and big.

  8. the entire look is too matronly (save for the footwear) for someone her age. the saving grace is that fabulous face, should have gone easy on the blusher, though. she looks as if she is expecting!

  9. I like her look. More importantly I admire her for the fact that she doesn’t feel the pressure to look and be skinny. Its time women are encouraged to be what size they want to be rather than only skinny. And to get a famous celebrity endorse it proudly is I think truly admirable.

  10. the dress is beautiful but i think someone like sonal kapoor,whos very skinny,can carry it off well…aish needs a stylist and some one to do her hair…

  11. Unless she is pregnant, she has NO excuse for looking like that. You guys are way too nice in judging her, but are unfairly biased against Kareena (who defi has a better style quotient)

  12. ummm… so i take it she isnt goin to be the “i-am50-and-still-so hot” kinda woman. Pretty and all, but is it me or does she look old/tired/plump even? she is aging gracefully yes.. BUT SHE IS ALSO ONLY 37! Why does she look like she’s given up!? all she shld give up thou is her stylist. For a woman this beautiful… gaah!

  13. that dress is too voluminous for her. she’s swimming around in it. she has such an amazingly beautiful face. i just hate that colour she’s wearing. it’s so bland.

  14. Ellie Saab + Ash should translate into something mindblowing. This is the exact opposite. I want to take her hands and pin them to the sides. The hat does nothing for her.

  15. don’t think this look suits her………. I guess Longines & Loreal has put Aishwarya on the world stage and it has done her good eh! Well I think she’s dynamic away, she deserves all the accolades she’s amassed.

  16. She looks terribly matronly and looks very uncomfortable wearing the hat.

    She looks very conscious which is not a good thing..you have to own the style and rock it in place of looking like you are dressed for a fancy dress competition.

    Plus the blush on her cheek makes her look more cherubic than usual and she looks like late 40s..

    Tsk tsk, someday she’ll get it right
    Right now she’s getting away only becauser she’s naturally blessed with good looks

  17. Ash chose a good colour, but overall the outfit has added years as well as pounds. OTT blush on her cheeks as well. I wish someone would help her with her wardrobe.

  18. Why is she dressed up like the ” Queen Mother”!!!! The whole attire looks cumbersome on her inluding the garrishly huge hat.

  19. Love her or hate her, you just can’t ignore her. I love it when you post Ash related posts because then we have so many comments. She seems to evoke strong reactions among us readers. My verdict is for “mother of the bride”. She looks like Queen Elizabeth.

  20. did she put her makeup on with a trowel?
    i love the colour on her though, better than her last Elie Saab at the Cannes fest.

  21. well the hat kills the dress for me..she reminds of the heroines in mid 80s with matching dress and hat..she could have opted for a more chic fascinator..but she’s a beautiful woman..
