Overwhelmed

36

Avantika went traditional at the Delhi Belly success bash in a floor-length white anarkali. Many of you have voiced out time and again that Avantika never chooses silhouettes that are flattering. Most of the time we didn’t agree.

This time, though, we are jumping on the bandwagon! The anarkali was overwhelming on her and what made the look worse were those blue pumps.

  1. “most of the time we didnt agree”

    you guys just write any old gibberish dont you? not just on this post, but in general as well…why not just save your own time and skip the writing all together. Instead spend that time approving comments since its the only interesting part of the blog

    • In defense of P&P, what is with all the cranky readers. Omg this is a fashion blog, our opinions are supposed to be different. Quit getting on their case. For the past three years I have been visiting this blog and I have learned so much even though I live in Chicago, IL. It makes me happy to see P&P get more recognition in the Indian media. Fashion is their passion and it is so visible. If we didn’t have their blog; who else would appropriate blog about Indian fashion? I for one think you guys are wonderful and want to say thanks!!!!

      On an aside note why do I feel like Avantika and Gul hate their bodies and wear an silouhette that’s unflattering?

    • Completely agree with ‘l’.
      As for everyone calling HHC a fashion blog…please. I strongly urge you to look up some fashion blogs, the level of writing and the resources they draw their content from before calling HHC and their weak, silly copy a ‘fashion blog’.
      Pulling pap pictures does not a fashion blog make.

          • I LOVE HHC!!! it’s entertaining and even though i live in the u.s i find it relevant and i learn a bit too. It’s my fave blog and the only one i read regularly.
            LOVE p&p. and in their defense, they never claimed to be “experts” they’re just having fun… which is what all their readers are supposed to do while reading it, not judging and saying mean things… come on, why so serious!??! it’s fun!

  2. Please, please – Avantika, dear, get some help with your clothing! You (short and voluptuous) and your hubby (really tall) look like my ex and I did about 25 years ago, and I know it isn’t easy to dress for your shape and size. But there are loads of better outfits to wear for public events with photographers present! One good idea – don’t wear so much white. Two, don’t make people look down at your feet with odd coloured shoes, as you want them to stay focused UP – like at your face. I could go on, but really, get a stylist who actually likes you and wants you to look good!

  3. I have following ur blog over a year now and have noticed that as u guys have gain popularity so has attitude changed. You make it sound like u really don’t care wht readers think. I can understand it’s ur blog and stuff but if u r not concerned abt ur reader than why put it public ,why not just keep it to ur self?? If it is public means it will have comments of all sorts . Why don’t u answer them with politeness?? This is just a suggestion from my side .hope i don’t get ur sarcastic venomous reply :)

    • Of course we do. Else, we wouldn’t be allowing comments, at all. And then, the site wouldn’t be that much fun either. As for answering with politeness, we try our best but at the end of the day are humans. Things get to us, too. :) (Especially after a hard day’s work)

      • Excuse me for butting in P&P but I have this urge to! Yes, blogs are public because people want to show. Disagree on the opinion politely and you will politeness in return.

        But to assume that you have a right to not just comment on the issue/post at hand but also on the bloggers and their quality in a rude manner and that they must respond politely, is just unfair and also slightly delusional.

        P&P I don’t know how you humour people who think they can be rude to you and get away with it. I am far more caustic. At the end of the day you are blogging for your own pleasure – it’s not social service and they dont have a RIGHT to anything beyond what you give them.

  4. This does not suit you! too much white, try to avoid white, it makes you look bigger. Oh and the pumps need to go. Find clothes that wont overwhelm your figure.

  5. Go easy guys-you can tell from her body language that she’s not comfortable.Probably knows it’s not a good look on a very top heavy girl.

    P.S I wouldn’t accuse you guys of not caring about readers comments but I do think you have your favourites and that you delete comments that don’t favour them.Nuff said.

  6. She looks really big. In a pregnant way. Why does she choose such clothes? He always seems dapper and well turned out so maybe he should help her a bit.

    • I don’t think it’s an apt comparison. Imran is tall and lean so any random thing he puts on will look at least decent on him. It’s the same reason designers choose tall and lean models because anything will look okay on them even if it looks hideous on someone with a different body type.

      Avantika is short and heavy on top which means she really needs to find the right clothes. It’s much easier said than done. Unfortunately, it’s also about unflattering photo angles. The photographers taking her pics are all probably taller than her so it means they are looking down on her as they take her picture which makes her look even worse.

    • I agree… I thought she is pregnant too. And people are saying that imran is tall… I think he is as tall as Amir/deepika padukone…He looks taller only with Avantika…

  7. She needs to do herself a favour, get herself measured and invest in some good quality foundation garments…. also, she should leave all the quirky clothes/shoes to Aunt Kiran and stick to some nice, clean, fuss-free silhouettes that visually lengthen her body………… BUT she won’t! she’d be wearing an equally unflattering ‘designer’ at the drop of a hat!!

  8. Nothing about this look is likeable. She has such a pretty face, she should dress in a way that highlights her best features and not her worst ones. I remember seeing her in a short yellow lanvin number and she had looked lovely. If she wants to ‘change it up’, it should be for the better!!

    PS: P&P, sending a lot of love your way to get through the day. I love this site, love the blog, and am extremely proud of what you’ve achieved so far!

    • Lots more power to you girls. At the end of the day, it is your blog and your opinion. If someone doesnt like it, they dont have to read it, simple.

  9. Hugs P&P. I’m a little shocked at the hate comments: are they talking about the same girls who make my desk-breakfast infinitely more interesting? You rock my world.
    And avantika. *shudder*. Hugs to her too: poor girl is still learning what works for her and what doesn’t.

  11. Guys guys: if there’s one universal rule that applies to all women its this one- Woman wears baggy clothing and tries covering up tummy= preggers announcement coming up shortly. Check out ANY celebrity right before they announced the preggo news: same style of clothing and same pose. Ash in her baggy Elie Saab recently for reference.

  14. avantika looks pissed as hell as if someone forcefully put her into this horrendous outfit…i would be pissed too. Avantika get a stylist or change stylists if you already have one and p.s. you look much prettier when you smile.

    Also on a side note..whats up with the hate comments guys…this is the only blog that chronicles indian fashion off the runway without the added celebrity gossip, yes it might not be a hardcore fashion blog..but it is making india realize the importance of style and dressing your body type and plus this blog is aiding in making way for other indian fashion blogs. And as other people have said..if you don’t like it..don’t read it.
