    perhaps a diff color rather than boring ole purple would’ve worked out great. the sketch looked fab so it is the color making a problem. it’s almost OTT for me with that bright purple.

    i’m loving imran;s shoesss lol

    A different color and a slimmer person wearing it would make the gown as luxurious as its sketch.

    the sketch doesn’t look like it was made for her…
    I know how it feels to be that short- and that shillouette will not work and it was poorly made with bad materials (poor thing, I almost feel bad)
    almost, because she has MY MAN!!…jk
    I love Imran’s look too :). he likes quirky things (he is quirky) and it fits him
    to be quite honest, this is the first time in a LOOOOOOOOOOONG time that I am looking forward to the Filmfare Awards- all becasue of him!

    I think it was meant to be much sleeker from the bust area and near the tummy… probably all that fabric or the wrong body type isn’t bringing that effect on Avantika (..who is she anyway?) The sketch i agree .. luxurious. Also, was the cleavage meant to be a bit more different?

    the sketch is beautiful……..what happened??!!! I almost always hate purple other then eggplant colour. Wonder if they had stuck to one colour it would have helped.

    Looks like a cheap prom dress.

    shouldnt she get some points for trying to be a bit different maybe?
    but yeah doesnt really work

    Eggplant or lavender or purple or violet..the bands of color are not v pleasing to the eye.
    an ombre version might have been much better…where the color darkened/or lightened in degrees.

    dis might have looked good in a magazine spread but in real life it is disastrous

    wow! the sketch is simply fab but it dint translate into reality at all. that dress is meant for someone much taller. avantika is way too petite (like me!) to carry that off. plus, the colors of that gown r unflattering. i am thinking olive and other shades of green. OR shades of chocolate and beige. yumm!

    Imran looks cute. dont like the shiny shoes.

    Could you pls cover more people from the filmfare awards please? There are such good pics of Aishwarya Rai available on the net. There is Rekha who I believe is wearing her saree from the Om Shanti Om song and hairstyle from Zubeida. Same jewelry even. Then there is Sushmita Sen in anther black something. Please put up these pics too.

    its just such a perfect case of bad execution!! i mean the white and lavender bands as hhcreular puts it are faaar apart.. !! rich colours wouldve looked so much better, such a shame

    I have known her for 16 years, Avantika that is, she is a tiny little girl, so a voluminous dress on a small girl was not a good idea. I blame the designer, she would have seen this for herself, the dress is pretty, but it overwhelms the little girl.

    the dress in the sketch is really nice. i am so jealous of avantika because she’s dating imran whom i have a huge crush on and she used to date ranbir kapoor who is also totally scrumptious. how can one person have so much luck?? not fair!

    @ adit, how does she do it? what’s her secret?

    the sketch resembles what sarah jessica parker wore at the oscars

    the sketch is beautiful… i even love the colours (though a rich colour would have been a better choice) but its just the wrong silhouette for her body type… its a dress for someone with a long torso and even longer legs… the dress is supposed to nip in at the waist and then flair out.. with her it looks like cloth wrapped around… and unfortunately it also needs a tiny waist..

  20. zara at | | Reply

    Yay to all the fellow petite girls! I sympathize with Avantika because we share similar body types – I’m very petite, with a short waist and long legs, and top-heavy as well. It’s difficult to find dresses that are accommodating enough at the bust but fitted well at the waist unless they are tailored perfectly. I do think a sleeker silhouette in a deep purple would have been a better choice.

    I must admit, though, that it’s nice that Imran’s girlfriend is so “real”-looking; as in, she’s not the typical model-type.

    @kg, becos she is an intelligent nice person

  22. ambreen at | | Reply

    she used to date ranbir more than 10 years back..

    as for the dress, we all live and learn :) she is a lovely girl, i would say Imran is a lucky guy!

    lol @ kg…i think her mom owns studio 18.

    i dont think she looks that bad. the dress is okay..but looks nothing like the sketch..i think if she was a bit taller it would have looked just fine.

    aww Imran looks yummy…

    she has imraan as her best accesory…what else does she need? lol she might not be looking her best, but she looks usually cute!

  26. Enigma at | | Reply

    Oh…Imraan is such a cutie pie! :)
    the sketch reminds me of SJP’s gown..

  27. monika s at | | Reply

    the gown is fab…but its not for her body type..coz she is 2 short..
    Imran looks amazing..just 2 good..even i love his shoes…

  28. U at | | Reply

    If the lower part of the gown hadn’t been so stiff it would have worked so much better..

    LOLOLOL this dress looks like it’s not done yet!

    sketch looks nothin like wt it ended up

  32. Fatima at | | Reply

    colour isn’t right, but i think the material is totally ewrong for her…the sketch looks more flowy and the material hould have been softer, not so stiff!

    imran is tooo cute, oh if only…

  33. Sonia99 at | | Reply

    Its an ugly dress. The tailoring is ghastly, especially at the top. I think good tailoring can make a short, stout person look good, but sadly that’s not the case here.

  34. Shweta at | | Reply

    she is dating imran?? boohoo *cries in frustation and jealousy* im jealoussssss lol ok jk the end…the dress doesnt seem like it was made for her…and wrong colours as well

  35. monika at | | Reply

    wrong body type here for such a dress.

  36. nandita at | | Reply

    Even I read the story in mirror before the event – but bah, the dress doesn’t do anything for her, washed out her personality even more! Bad colour too!
