    As critical as I have been of her past tent-clad appearances, I really like her here. She looks lovely, almost ethereal.

      I think Photo #3 is photoshopped. The cheeks and undereye are remarkably different from Photo#2. And no, its not the angle.

      Agreed! I had totally given up on her. But you’re totally right she looks way better here and far younger as well good for her!

    She looks gorgeous!!! The strategically placed belt defines her waist and gives more shape to the silhouette. The wavy hair is a welcome change from her usual straightened hairstyle.

    These guys here at HHC are the most biased people around. They have to put Aishwarya down no matter what. Why don’t you guys upload pictures of how you both look?
    P.S: yes you aren’t going to publish this!

      Shocked to see the personal assault on PnP, by people who have obviously no qualms in enjoying the hard work put in by PnP, but lack the basic graciousness to handle differing opinions without getting personal.
      You folks really need to go get a life!!!

      Lol. Aren’t P&P celebrities themselves now? So what’s wrong with someone not liking how they dress up, etc. Don’t dish it if you can’t take it ;)

      1. Saya at | | Reply

        Valid point. ;) As for Aishwarya, I think she looks lovely. There are going to be 100+ comments on this one and that seems usual when Aish gives any good look. She must be sure laughing at some of the comments. :D

    Baby steps in the right direction!!! She hasn’t looked so stunning in quite some time. Hope this is just he first of many more super looks for the most beautiful woman on earth.

    You guys are so biased. The woman looks amazing here. Best she has looked in ages!!! The face, hair, look , it all works

    All that jewellery and none notices it. She probably defeats the purpose of a brand amabassdor for a jewellery brand, when it is only the woman you notice. Isnt it?

    Already excited for Cannes :-)

      True that! Though there is so much on display on her not a word about it. :D

    2. Ahot at | | Reply

      Nah, I am sure brides & women all over the country will try to get their hands on everything she is wearing, even if it´s only the bootleg version of it! So, win win for everyone! :P

  12. RM at | | Reply

    She looks great, love the hair! The last picture reminds me of her in Taal for some reason.

  13. sree at | | Reply

    Definitely her best appearance in recent times! So youthful and stunning! She can still give all the younger actresses a run for their money with just her face alone.

    She looks lovely!!
    P&P, seriously, you guys need a reality check…..

  17. rhea at | | Reply

    she looks gorgeous…. fab… look…. after a very long time u see her so elegant, pretty… and loved the black anarkali
    seriously if kangana would have worn the same thing in the same hair and make u.. you guys would hv given thumbs up…
    y not the same for this beautiful lady… v biased…

  18. Slc at | | Reply

    I think she looks absolutey lovely. I like the hair and makeup. The anarkali is nicely fitted too. Love that necklace.

  19. Srilalitha at | | Reply

    How gorgeous she looks, The hair makes her look young… she is glowing!!!

  20. Neha at | | Reply

    Aishwarya looks breathtaking and half her age! ! Everything from top to bottom is so perfect. P&P , you always had complains of her boring straight hair, now when she has changed it, and trust me that’s a unique one too, you are again critical. She looks royal and no words are enough to describe how fresh and pretty she looks. You both need glasses, with reality check stamped on it.

      Lol +1.
      They are totally biased when it comes to ash. Maybe because she doesn’t come out looking like a fruitcake in every appearance.

    3. Ahot at | | Reply

      lmao @ the glasses line. I am totally going to steal it for further use! :D

  21. A.dot.2.many at | | Reply

    Love the hair, makes her look so young. The anarkali isn’t overwhelming either

  22. MT at | | Reply

    I dislike the hair as well, though considering the point of comparison is her earlier look, I’ll take this.

    Also can I say that it’s pretty pathetic (read incredibly pathetic) that people resort to personal comments and accusations of “bias” just because you have opinions they don’t approve of.

  23. sukh at | | Reply

    Aishwarya is looking infinitely better, so much so that I’m checking out her pictures again and again.She’s fixed her makeup too, and that lip color looks pretty on her.

    Also, yougaiz , I wasn’t aware that fashion blogging is a beauty contest. Or anybody with a different opinion needs to be silenced with ‘You’re just jealous and also your hair stinks!’ That kind of stuff can be left for electioneering :) P and P are lovely ladies, but frankly we all come here to gawp at Aishwarya and Kangana and Sonam, not critique people who run the site.

    After a long long time Aishwarya gives a look I like. Not a fan of the star, but I love how she looks here. Welcome change indeed!

  26. Food Poisoned Attorney at | | Reply

    She does looks so fresh -faced! The suit is a big yes…and looks lovely.

  27. DYE at | | Reply

    She looks GORGEOUS finally !!! SO so so much YOUNGER!
    PnP, even though i disagree with your opinion right now, if you don’t like the hair.. its your opinion.. hell.. it’s your own blog! please don’t let these people put you down.. dogs bark!!!

    You’ll ROCKKKKk!!!

    1. Adara at | | Reply

      Dogs bark…You’ll rock? Bwahaha. Oh good lord! I haven’t laughed this hard even in any of the clown appearance of some celebs on HHC. Thank you for that. :D

  28. chez at | | Reply

    Y all the personal comments. Everyone is entitled to their opinions.

    Aish looks beautiful.. Such a refreshing change from the boring anarkalis teamed with the boring straight hair. She looks regal!

  29. Neharika at | | Reply

    I love the hair and makeup…What I dont like is the anarkali…Looks like she just changed her hair makeup and walked out of Jodha Akhbar set….She definitely looks younger…

  30. DramaMama at | | Reply

    First up, she looks fine. And since she hasn’t looked fine in ages think people are overreacting and acting rather vicious towards PnP. They form make personal comments on anyone and think calling then oily or cringing at their pics is downright crude. Just my two bits here. Really shocked to see the hate.

  31. Adara at | | Reply

    Gorgeous she looks. Black & gold done in the right way. That last pic, wow!

  32. smruthi at | | Reply

    LOL at the comments above…its beyond funny…i mean yes…she looks stunning…regal…and much yoounger…but that doesnt mean the dress and the hair go together…especially to a launch event that tooo on a sunny day….the dress is fab on her and so is the hair…but together..may be no…simple…

    and blogging is abt personal taste…where does bias come from. ?? what will they get if they praise sonam and dont praise Ash ??? nothing…so please…lets just share views and not stoop to such levels…

    Two people who can do no good in eyes of P&P – Aishwarya Rai and Vidya Balan..best part is that they don’t seen to give a damn :)

    Sorry, this is way post-event but just wanted to say that I have disagreed with HHC many a time but seriously, personal comments like THAT are just rude and rudeness is unnecessary. If you have problems with their looks or hair or whatever, don’t come here. It’s so simple. I enjoy and appreciate the ‘time pass’ this blog offers me. Back to Aishwariya: I like the hair, it does make her look young however, the whole look seems overwhelming and too much.

    Looks better than before!

    While I like the make up and the hair… I am still tired of the huge tent dress. I wish it would go away for good!

    LION KURTA… LION HAIR? shahnaz hussain biopic anyone?

  39. Malaise at | | Reply

    Dislike the hair. Looks unkempt and dry to me. The outfit I suppose is a welcome change from the others she sports which look like she could harbor a family of midgets under it. That face,though, could be covered with zits and she would still look beautiful.

  40. Jiminywiminy at | | Reply

    Loooooooooooooooooooooooooove! Ash looks so royal. Also I did notice the jewellery, and the dress is the perfect foil for it. Best she’s looked in ages.

  41. FG at | | Reply

    The last pic looks good. i love the outfit and the jewelry. but honestly that hair do is suited for a photoshoot. it doesn’t do her justice in reality. look at pic 2..
    The anonymity of the internet brings out the worst in people. follow the mantra that if you cannot politely disagree , then don’t post.

    So glad to see this winner from Ms. Rai! I had given up on her. We all know she prefers yards of fabric and tent-like silhouettes, so while she didn’t veer too far from that aesthetic, what a difference the belt and slim sleeves make. Props for changing up the hair too–an overall lovely look. :)

  43. Falguni at | | Reply

    In fact loved her refreshing look. She experimented with her hair rather than regular waves, big chunky gold jewelry . Reminds me of Aishwarya 10 years back. 10/10 for this one.


  44. hema at | | Reply

    Those comments were harsh! But that said, if you bill yourself as a fashion blogger, people EXPECT you to be…well, fashionable!:-). Your fashion writing career is based on picking apart celebrity fashion (you have to admit some of your comments are wayyy harsher), so in your pictures if you appear poorly dressed or “oily” yourself, you are bound to draw criticism and lose some credibility. You need to walk the walk!

    Ash may have finally got hold of a good stylist. I did not expect this turnaround at all- if ever.

    The last pic is giving a serious Deepika in Cocktail vibe. ME Likey! :)

  46. Fashionizta at | | Reply

    O my I’m shocked by the long list of personal attacks and some outright ridiculous comments. Being an old time reader I just swing by to see Fashionable India thru PnP’s eyes but the tone of some comments are truly appalling and surprised that its not moderated.
    As for my lovely Aish dang girl the real you is back. So happy to see the new hair style and the toned makeup and for the first time I noticed the jewellery Least this time she lived up to the brand ambassdor title. ‘Jodha’ style luv the detailing as a belt, on the sleeve and neck. Hope to see her in short sleeves soon.
