Drowning In Velvet!

66

For the photocall in Paris, Aishwarya wore a long velvet coat over grey pants. (Well, that’s all we could see.)

Didn’t mind the short jacket but this coat is way too much velvet for our taste. Perhaps, if she had left it open, it might have looked better.

  1. Guys, can you please find more about the watch? I know she endorses and wears Longines but they’re way out of my range. I’m digging the “chunky” watches that can be seen on so many celebrities these days.

    any idea what watch she’s sporting?

    thanks

  2. well firstly she looks okay overall, make up could be better as in it’s to obvious not the flawless look.

    Isn’t it an inside photo, so why the coat?? she’s wearing it like its her dress, most actresses would leave it open so the outfit can be seen.

    not fan of velvet anything much. didn’t like the small jacket either.

  3. @ rashmi,

  4. She is lovely to look at…but the clothes are a miss for me. Wide leg pants w a long heavy coat almost to the ankles…???? With Ash’s body type she should wear straight leg…not wide leg and not v skinny pants either (the latter 2 would only make her look extra wide at the hips). Anyhoo…that face can override a multitude of fashion/style donts.

  5. @debs even i thought of jolie when i saw the second pic of aish! i think its the winged eye liner or the way she’s looking into the camera.. so similar!!
    her outfit could have been better.. but ya she’s still the most beautiful girl in the world!

  7. Actually it looks elegant in the pictures on the celebrity photo sites. Paris had a bad storm today and is very cold so maybe the velvet is to keep warm.

  9. her face and hair look 1000 times better than that silly ponytail.. as for her outfit, i kinda like what i can see of the pants, dont care much for the smoking jacket (for that’s what it looks like) – I want to see her blouse… it looks pretty..

  10. This look actually works for me – there’s something edgy about it. The velvet is not gaudy, the trousers are stylish, and the overall effect is interesting, unconventional and chic.

  12. That’s one ugly coat… Nobody should ever wear so much velvet (I wouldn’t wear even the small jacket… velvet looks really unclassy)!

  13. i’ve never understood her dress sense, it’s quite boring. maybe she’ll evolve with time and become one of those elegant older women like catherine deneuve. regarding her beauty, it’s too perfect for words.

  14. Ash looks like she’d cried her eyes out? Well I don’t know what it is but he eyes look puffy and she looks very tired.

    Othervise, its a nice look/coat… though I must say it looks like she’s drowning in her “heavy” ensemble.

  15. lol, I’m the reverse of the majority here; I think her outfit is kind of elegant (I like how she combined a long coat with an even longer skirt) but her face looks very very tired and not at all beautiful here. Poor girl must be traveling herself crazy for the premieres/promotions of this movie.

  17. She’s been dressing really bad lately and I blame the weight gain…im going through that phase when you gain like 10 lbs out of the blue…and nothing fits..sucks. BUT c’mon Aish you look like a box…

  18. Horrible.. also her choice on make up in the movie was very bad.. she looked so dark.. she pulled of her role as the actual pink panther theif very well..thank god there was no overacting! but this dress definately overdone

  19. I wanted to add to that: I am sure the PP people made her look dark on purpose; that is what would make an Indian actress such as Ash look exotic. They did the same in ‘The Last Legion’.
    I also think that’s a big reason why Freida is a much bigger hit with the Western public than Ash; whatever is different and exotic, is interesting. In India, Ash is interesting because she is sheet-white and blue-eyed; in Hollywood, that’s no big deal. ‘Typical’ dusky looks such as Freida’s on the other hand are considered new, interesting and gorgeous.

  20. Gayatri 15- thanks for runing the movie for the rest of us who have NOT watched it; as for Ash, she looks stunning in ANYTHING…even here. It’s so funny to me, how people comment on the littlest things about this beautiful woman- she has unsymmetrical eyerbrows? LOL give me a break guys…and more than anything…give this beautiful woman a break…she’d look good in a potato sac!

  21. i sometimes support ash, but this is too much of a disaster here! She is pretty as it is(even wehn she puts on wieght or loses weight), it must really be hardwork to ruin it like this.

  22. I totally second Kimz604’s thoughts. This woman is beyond beautiful and yet other women pick her apart like it’s a hobby. I’m sorry, but no one featured on this site, no one commenting on this site, and no one in Bollywood OR Hollywood can come close to the utter perfection in beauty that is Aishwarya Rai.

    People are often frustrated with her fashion choices…but regardless of what she wears, regardless of her “back fat” ,her “wrinkles”, her accessories, and her “fake” attitude, she is so breath-taking and I am so proud that she and I are a product of the same beautiful country.

  23. i agree… Ash Rai is gorgeous notwithstanding her make-up/clothes/whatever else. she looks exhausted here, & in recent photos, also starting to look her age – mid-30s – but there’s nothing wrong with that. as someone said above, wait till all the nitpickers here get to that age & start panicking.

    also, this outfit looks good on her. i’d bet the coat is an Armani, given how much velvet he uses in his creations.

  26. First comment @ Rashmi – i think that’s also a Longines watch she’s wearing. she’s hardly seen in anything else. u can find chunky types in more affordable brands like Swatch, Citizen, Espirit etc…

  27. @ not a sheep! Should we be like.. omg she’s so pretty, she’s perfect in her physical appearance, doesnt matter what she wears. Plz..We got our opinions too.. We never denied she’s beautiful, but we think she wears absurd clothes at times, and we say that.. whats the comments section for, anyways??? For just praising someone? Whatever u said is what u think, but i think there are plenty of other well-dressed AND awesomely beautiful celebs here..

  28. well i’m thirty and i dont see why this is age-ism. most of these actresses get by on the basis of sheer looks and not talent. so if that is what they offer – its what they must be open to being criticised on.

    if she is criticised for back fat or neck wrinkles – heck, what else is one to observe – its definitely more entertaining than her acting skills or lack thereof!

    that said – the site is here to talk about fashion. how you look is part of it. if we’re talking feminism and ageism – this isnt the place for it i guess…

    and yeah – i’m going to be 31 this year – and i wont even get into the argument about looking as good as her at 35. its her job to look good in the glamour business. not mine.

  29. I wonder why is she caked up! Her makeup was so muct better in the Martha show. I have seen her pics of this event over the internet – and – the face looks so much whiter when compared to the neck.

    She did the same to herself on the Premier too.

    I wish she toned down her base to a minimum. She doesnt have to look white. I am sure she is very fair and does need to cake up to look whiter.

    And
    @ Ash is bashed because her PR alsways paints her as a Perfect.

  30. i just saw the promotion show on the french TV … u can catch it on youtube .. type

    le grand journal aishwaryarai on youtube …

    she actually looked so elegant with the coat on .. its looks kinds tacky on the pics but in real its so diff on her…

    poor women she must be traveling a lott … they are just zooming on her eyes all the time .. she looks so tired .. and they even talked about the color of her eyes on show and steve martin was all in praise abt her professionalism ..

  31. Ahhh come on. Of course we pick on her and defend her in equal measure. It’s part of the love! :)
    She looks stunning as always, but I don’t like the combination of the wide leg, and long closed coat. Doesn’t work!

  32. Not intending to offend/bore anyone here on this site, but just feel that as long as no one is trying to dress mutton as lamb, age needs to be kept in perspective and not harped on about constantly.

  33. @ ritu, dev patel was also slathered with paint to make him look darker than he actually is in the movie. when i go shopping in london to buy make up, the bimbos at the counter always recommend darker shades than what i actually am. what’s with these people?

  35. @anokhi; i know right! :(

    Renu: ‘And
    @ Ash is bashed because her PR alsways paints her as a Perfect.’

    That is SO TRUE dear. I’m sorry, but I don’t find her perfectly beautiful. Not at all. I am sure this will put me in the ‘nitpicker’ category, but her nose has always appeared unattractive to me. And that’s not a ‘small detail’; it’s in the center of her face. Overall; seriously! She’s a pretty woman but that’s about it. There are far more beautiful girls out there, but:
    Ash’s ‘most beautiful woman in the world’ PR + India’s obsession for anything Caucasian-looking= a national deification of Aishwarya Rai.
