    Sister needs to go easy on the push-ups ;)

      hahaha….just what i thought…

      Seriously! Push-ups really not going with this outfit. Her boobs are popping out in a very weird way, and that’s taking the attention away from the outfit.

    i think she looks gorgeous.. anarkali & makeup included:)

    I actually AM loving the make-up. It’s the HAIR that’s giving me the jilts!! she should’ve had pulled it up in a bun.

    never thought i’d see this much cleavage on an anarkali….

    1. Anita at | | Reply

      i know.. right? too much – it’s like rohit bal couldn’t let an anarkali be an anarkali

    Let’s save the push-up bra for a layered tank/distressed denim premiere look, shall we?
    I somehow can’t believe this is a Rohit Bal design (been taking Manish Malhotra lessons have we Mr. Bal?) and that he allowed her to walk out in that particularly hideous outfit styled and made-up like she is…*sigh.

      He himself looks quite dapper though. :)

    omdz itz about time she takes her hair out the bun, nice anarkali but i just think with the way the duppata is drapped it makes it looks like theres too much fabric going on! she does look nice tho, including the shades of make up :)

    Huh. My first thought – “Queen Guinevere ran away from the Renaissance Faire and discovered bindis.”

    oh its just a press conference…i was like yikesss another disaster at the Cannes…fingers toes its all crossed…really something prettier?? i mean this looks so drab..and boring for someone so young…and anarkalis are nice but all the time…last i saw her at the om shanti om premiere in London and she was wearing a red one i think….(correct me if i am wrong…i might be)…but nooooooooo no more anarkalis …everyones wearing them…so over done!

    I think she looks great (though eerily like Sushmita Sen in the last picture) but wish she would dye her hair back to one color… the lighter bottom half makes it a little mullet-y. The dark makeup suits her with this outfit, IMO.

  14. Andrea at | | Reply

    Aw, man. I absolutely love Deepika but this look is fail all around.

  15. arpitha at | | Reply

    I think she looks great with the bindi….I also like the anarkali (for a press meet) but would liked it little shorter.

  16. Sim at | | Reply

    she came from a shoot maybe

    Good lord that is ghastly in every respect: dress, hair, make-up…

    Is there some unwritten rule that young Indian actresses must look like clowns at Cannes for the first couple of years before getting their proper outfits out? I still haven’t forgotten the horrors that Neeta Lulla inflicted on Aishwarya all those years ago.

      lol so do i!:p

      but wish Preity was thr too..cz she sure would have been a breath of fresh air..as she rarely makes a mess like these 2 ladies seems to have..

  18. Sparkle at | | Reply

    I think the makeup makes her look gorgeous and suits the dress.

    At first I didn’t think it was an anarkali because I can’t see the churidar.

  19. lavanya at | | Reply

    i feel the make up was fab (considering she has a dark skin tone) the-bronze-plum look is justifiable but the hair – NO NO.
    Anarkali as said by someone – is overdone and even if u gotto wear it, its always better if u show a lil bit more of the churipants and lesser of U KNOW WHAT!!

    Judging from some of these comments, you have influenced your readers so much that they have begun to take an immediate dislike to velvet on anything!

    –Ugly dress

    –Hideous make up

    Can’t believe she is representing India…

  22. adorableonyourvanity at | | Reply

    her make-up ages her 5 years easily. and the dress is hideous.

  23. Bhavana at | | Reply

    was it really necessary to match the maroon on the anarkali to her lips??? really makeup artist..really??

  24. FashionB at | | Reply

    Doesnt she resemble isha deol little bit ?

    Anarkali-OMG what version of anarkali is this -Gown +anarkali…

    Dupatta could have been of light thinner fabric,rather than curtain or bedsheet.

    Anarkali length-OMG…I am sure she is nt wearing any underpants.Doesnt need one.

  25. Kanira at | | Reply

    What horrendous makeup! Just look at the closeups…

  26. Hema at | | Reply

    I think Rohit Bal wanted to look nicer than Deepika…maybe some sort of competition going on and …Rohit wins. Ghastly makeup, terrible outfit and boobs peeping out to check out the action.

  27. SK at | | Reply

    good to see rohit bal all recovered.
    great outfit… badly worn.

  28. seema at | | Reply

    so blahhh…im sure we can do better! deepika has such a good body why does she insist on hiding it with these drab clothes?? terrible. she looks ten years older. and the hair is so off-putting.

  29. kismet at | | Reply

    her usual make-up is stunning why change it to this awful look, the foundation is sooo wrong!

    someone save deepika from this now before she steps on the red carpet! Please let her saree be nicer than this.

    Really I should not be liking something that looks like its dragged out of Umrao Jaan’s closet – but for some inexplicable reason – make-up and push-up apart – I am kind of digging this Moghlai look.

    No doubt I will soon wake up and smell the coffee.

  31. Nogina at | | Reply

    I actually lovin it. those pastel colors make her look dull. this make up, though very eighties, lookinn great.

  32. padma at | | Reply

    make up is bad, anarkali is kinda random too.

  33. KT at | | Reply

    She looks divine! Perfect indian beauty! Outfit is hideous but she carries it with utmost grace and I am not a deepika fan at all!

  34. Aditi at | | Reply

    Just dont liek the make up .. Oh wait dont like the dress either !!!!

  35. monika at | | Reply

    where is the churidar….lol

  36. Anita at | | Reply

    Rohit Bal can do so much better than this one. Like the OTT pushup. I think its her lipstick which is making her look too old. There is just too much bronzer, dark eyes and dark lips. Something’s gotta give. Hope the final red carpet design is worthy of Ms. PAdukone. This lady has one of the fittest bodies in the industry and poise to rock the red carpet.

    BTW…Bal looks dapper.

  37. Gris at | | Reply

    Isn’t the Anarkali…toooo long ?? eh… ppl… :p try better..

  38. akaa at | | Reply

    If this is an anarkali, it needs to go shorter at the hem, and shorter with the neckline too .. that’s too much of cleavage for an ethnic dress!!
    Deepika is what – 5’10” or something.. and she’s drowning in all that fabric.. So, what was the intent behind this kind of a design??
    Just HOPING the sari is not a disaster too!!

  39. Lalitha at | | Reply

    the makeup is waaaay too heavy/dark for her.

  40. preety at | | Reply

    oh what is she wearing who decided the lenght of this anarkali this outfit does nothing to impress n she looks like a child in a grown ups clothes ..not good

  41. Vanaja at | | Reply

    Deepika looks ok overall. Rohit himself looking quite dashing, resembles so much of Sean Penn in this look.

  42. jyot at | | Reply

    not worth an international appearance. looks dated to me. in late 90’s we had anarkali phase and velvet and dark maroon make up. soo baasi. please something fresh, u r in ur early 20’s deepu!!

  43. kanika at | | Reply

    Push up bra with Anarkali – SO not right !
