    How do u like that on her? It looks a lot better on the models. She almost looks like she’ll be airborne any minute.

      yeh heaps better on the models, it looks more relaxed on them.

        exactly what i thought.. the top can look nice but if worn by the appropriate person… !

        Agree, it has to do more with proportion than anything else. Look at how the models are wearing high wasited shorts to exaggerate their legs so that the shoulders are balanced. Avanit is too top heavy, as well, to do this type of a shoulder.

          Gues P&P erre right. Not many would agree with them on this one. Neither do I.

            I agree. Ms. Birla is way too top heavy to pull this look off. If it were anyone else wearing this top, like Ms. Mirza I might have a different opinion.

          HAHA, actually I like it :) Just not on her with the way she’s worn it
          but I’m all for the new, I have a very open asthetic

    Some things should stay on the runway and this is one of them. She is an example of ‘fashion victim’.

      UGH! The phrase fashion victim still doesn’t work for me :/

        Ditto! may not be perfect but fashion Victim??? c’mon now. its generally the fashion ignorant who go around labelling others.

        1. Carol at | | Reply

          It is only the ignorant with a herd mentality that believes everything with a designer name should be worn off the runway.

          1. pdaervo at |

            But that’s just the thing isn’t? It’s not even about designer labes, the outfit isn’t unwearable (no peice is unwearable). It’s about her personal aesthetic, that doesn’t really fit with most of ours. To say that the fashion itself is the cause is what I don’t like about the phrase. She’s not a VICTIM. To me, it’s like saying anything other than traditional art isn’t beautiful :/ It’s not even about the designer, it’s about the idea.

        Absolutely- a total and complete FASHION VICTIM- this top is too whimsical to be worn off the runway- except by someone statuesque and immensly confident- Sonam kapoor is the only Indian fashionista wwho comes to mind.
        The make up , the hair and the bag (which is nothing spectacular by itself and even worse when combined with this top) all accentuate the feeling of a little girl wearing her mother’s lipstick and heels- or in this case, a fashion ignoramus in haute couture.
        I, for one, am sick and tired of her taking beautiful, radical peices like this one or the YSL jumpsuit and cheapening them with inappropriate accesories, hair and make-up. She should stick to simpler peices, visit a hair stylist to sort out that over-processed hair and choose a better shade of lipstick.

      SO VERY TRUE!!!

    I don’t think there is a better way to highlight this bag. So even if I don’t really care for the bag, I like the pairing.

    my 2 cents, the sleeves might work better on a cropped jacket than on a top. The close neck and the sleeves seem a bit overwhelming. The models look better also because they not too covered up other than with the top.

    The top is very avant garde and would have looked fab if Avanti had styled it well. She has the petite frame to carry it off.
    Somehow, Avanti always reminds me of Victoria Beckham.

    Why is she so orange? The lips look even more neon pink in contrast. A top that looks edgy on the models just does not work on her.

    I think it is a hard top to pull off, she looks fab!

      Hehe ! lol Lol

      I can’t take my mind off those Mickey Mouse ears now …

    that top looks horrible.
    lol @ sonia – mickey mouse ears indeed

    1. Rupal at | | Reply

      Totally agree…. PNP how could you possibly use the word “love” for this outfit.

  9. Sonal at | | Reply

    I thought no one will repeat this lipstick faux pas after Gauri Khan(at some film award function )But Avanti doesn’t believe in learning from others’ mistakes.And pairing a high end top with regular black trousers is no Fashion sense..it could have looked better with better bottoms,hairstyle,shoes,handbag ,makeup and expression!!!Maybe next time!

    I’ll have to ask her if I could borrow it for halloween. ;-p

    Maybe slim fit pants would have helped.

    Huh??? Watcha smoking???? This is a disaster!!!!!

    loveee the top!! remember loving it on the runway too!
    she should have left her bag at home as it distracts the otherwise edgy look!

    Make this in the Red Bull colors.. and caption it “red bull gives you wings!”

  15. Probster at | | Reply

    Heart the D&G top. Bad choice for bangle/watch and the BAG!! Wish the bag was solid and in a color that would pop all the black along with it….the trousers are OK…

  16. Siddharth at | | Reply

    The top is not made for common people, but only for ramp and only for models.. period.

  17. the mad momma at | | Reply

    you’re right P&P i dont agree. not everything edgy suits everyone or is necessarily pleasing to every eye!

    in this case i’m going with the fashion victim comment. not everything funky on the ramp will make a fashionista of you…
