Another Curveball!

71

The sun didn’t rise from the west, I didn’t wake up 5lbs lighter but things around me have definitely changed. First, Kareena in a non-Manish Malhotra and now the last person I would have expected to see wearing one, IS! Yes, Mr. Malhotra may have dressed Aishwarya for Endhiran but this is quite a first: wearing his design outside of films. What’s more surprising is that I like it on her.

Update: AB Jr. walked the ramp for Manish Malhotra at the benefit event which explains why Aishwarya wore Manish Malhotra. Not that much of a curveball now, is it. :P

  1. ROFL!!! I have given up on MM… but Abhishek actually makes Aishwarya look good in this picture.
    That velvet jacket and still stuck in that “3D glasses” mode wants to make me throw up… geez! move on already.

  2. 1 cotton candy on stick for me please….

    Like the makeup and hair and thinking that the dress would look good in the purple that is used in the sleeves instead of the pepto bismol colors…

    • the deeper shade of pink that the panels have been tied and dyed in would have looked much more elegant than the annoying shade of powder pink.

  3. Hmm..dont really find the either of their outfits comment worthy…at ALL…

    But…Is it just me or is ethnic wear (saris and salwars/ anrakalis not kurtis/ India-inspired dresses) making a huge comeback on the red carpet after about 5-10 years?

    Considering that most Indian Designers usually (and there ARE exceptions) design very mediocre (at the best) dresses with pretty clumsy silhouttes and a lot of Bbay socialites over accesorize and go OTT with the bling (which is much more tolerable with Indian clothes where ornate looks graceful) I think that this is a good thing.

  4. Now if only, only we could ban MM!!! Seriously if there is one person who is single handedly responsible for Bolly’s (sometimes) less-than-comendable (read: flashy and tawdry) dress sense it is him!!!

    I have no problem with changing it up, bikini blouses, tunic dresses etc ( only when they are tastefully done) but must we bastardize graceful, elegant Indian clothing with overdoses of velvet and very loud bling?

        • Totally agree!!
          MM is seriously responsible for great damage to people’s perception of ethnic / traditional!!

          What I do not understand is that why do these celebs run to MM for Indian wear .. like why ??
          What is it that they find appealing in his flashy / blingy / OTT costumes… and I deliberately use the word COSTUMES … the things he makes do not qualify as CLOTHES at all!!

  5. The fact that gold and bling is muted makes it work. The colour looks amazing against her skin. The changed hair is refreshing. She looks lovely.

  6. i am telling you telling this woman is preggers, first the way she hid her belly in the paa premiere in the black sari and the red lipstick (trying to take the attention away from her belly) and now this dress..wait and watch

    • Completely agree.

      The fat hair is on a slippery slope to Shahnaz Hussain craziness.
      And I’m not loving the oufit much either. For one, that fabric that cuts right above the chest makes her look deflated – come to think of it, I’ve never seen it look good on anyone. And again, as is ever the case with MM, there’s way too much bling.

      MM needs to study Sabya to learn how to use fabrics and colors intelligently, and how to do gold without blinding people.

  7. I don’t like pink personally but it looks good on her and I like the hair and makeup and shoes (those are some high heels).

    What is up with the nerd specs that all the guys are wearing?

  8. I LOVE the pink but not too crazy about the gold chudidaar. kinda tacky and takes away the sweetness from the pink. Aish looks gorgeous :)

  9. The suit reminds me of the one Karishma Kapoor wore sometime back …similar color and cut…and that one was MM too…mebbe Aishwarya should have checked tht out before wearing it…lol…

  10. VA VA VOOM! She looks fabulous! I think its the fit and the fresh silhouette which is working for her..more than the ensemble itself, which is the usual MM fare…

  11. The outfit it OK but I think she looks fabulous. I’ve always found that Ash has been the one person who can pile on the jewelry and the bling and still make it work. I think it’s that face of her’s, nothing can compete with that face.

  12. I just love Aishwarya. She’s always special whenver she steps out. I don’t always like her clothing but everything else makes up for it.

  13. Aishwarya always glows in colors, and the style is something we haven’t seen her in, which makes the look work for me. Plus she does have that je ne sais quoi that makes an outfit that would look rather meh on anybody else appear graceful and feminine.

  14. The outfit is strictly okay nothing fancy. But Aish makes it look good. She’s truly gorgeous. Why can’t AB junior wear decent clothes ..like even try? He has such fugly taste in clothes.

  15. found the dress quite tacky and typical looking…not like at all. and the make up is ghastly…..abhishek seems to be trying too hard to look chill but ends up looking like a pale replica of his dad.

  17. I actually like this MM dress on Aishwarya. P&P, could you guys find out more info on Shoes. They look Jimmy Choo to me but I could be wrong.

    thank you.

  18. For a change Ash looks decent, for me she looked the best wiping the floor in the Movie Guru wearing a Gujju style saree. Thank god for the designer who lent here this Shalwar Kameeze…

    Aby Baby, whats with those glasses? Playing the nerd doesn’t really suit you… Please stick to the style chosen for you in the movie Sarkar.

    Stop trying tooooo hard to be cool…

    Less is more!!!

  19. Ash – Sabayasachi does some good Indian clothes – Consult him for a finer classier wardrobe.

    If you want I can style you and save you from been STYLE BASHED!

  20. Absoultely gorgeous! Only one to actually make MM look good. Every time she steps out she looks fab and suited to each occasion. FAAAAAAAAAAB.

  21. I believe Ash has had a tiff and parted ways with her old fav, Neeta Lulla which is why she’s promoting MM now!Doesn’t look too bad, I think.
    If she IS preggers, we’ll all know soon, won’t we?;-D

  22. Ok, she looks good. I love the hair and makeup. I like the colour of her outfit. BUT….. and I usually don’t have a BUT to say for Aishwarya.. BUT… I HATE HOW the design just totally cuts right across the top of the bust. It just makes her (and anyone else who would wear something like this) look pregnant. I’m not saying she looks pregnant or she is.. but it’s cut to make everyone look like that. It’s so odd. Why did MM do that :S.

  23. Ash looks beautiful and more than anything else she is wearing a dress that is event appropriate . For God’s sake Kaifi Azmi was not a Night Club Owner for the other women to dress like they were going for a dance in his memory!!

  26. I find it a horrendously ugly dress but somehow she makes it look cute. I do so hate the mahogany hair though…makes her look like those old women in India who end up with orange hair because they repeatedly use henna to cover their grey. It’s not that bad on Aish of course but black hair brings out her striking features. Brown hair totally dilutes her looks. Bleh

  27. Ash looks much better than her recent appearances, esp Shilpa Shetty’s wedding reception, where her dress was hideous to say the least…Also, I for one think this salwar kameez is good..

    • I heard she injured her foot recently while dancing for her flick “Endhiran-The Robt” with Rajnikanth!
      may be that’s a mark!
      and no Ash will never go crazy like Angelina Jolie or Saif Ali Khan over Tattoos! She’s way too mature than them to have them!

  28. Hi P&P, please upload the pictures of the Mumbai Police Show where Aishwarya, Amitabh, Shahrukh, Shahid, Priyanka, Asin etc etc attended!
    Thank you so much, cuz Ash was looking smashing in that sari!!

  29. Reality check. She is attractive but nothing out of the ordinary. She looks like a washed out Rekha. Very cookie cutter and commercial for the masses. Boring.
