Deepika, The Grand Marshal

24

Deepika attended the India Day celebrations in NYC as Grand Marshal and wore Manish Malhotra, Tarun Tahiliani and Shantanu-Nikhil.

The sari had the typical trademark design of Manish Malhotra, which we just saw on Shilpa and I wish there was a full-length pic of the Shantanu-Nikhil lehenga, because we rarely see their traditional designs.

I personally thought the Tarun Tahiliani lehenga was too heavy-duty for a day-event, but what say you?

P.S. I searched quite a bit and couldn’t find clear full-lengths of all outfits. If you do, do drop us a line.

  1. Nah, American desis love heavy work, love bling. I think we’re more responsible for the persistence of the ridiculously tacky rhinestoned and sequined georgette sari than saas-bahu soaps. This is why I’m getting married in India. If you shop here you will be paying $500-$1000 on the the above-mentioned garbage.

    Of course, Deepika doesn’t look like garbage. My word, that girl is soooooo beautiful. The first picture is total beauty queen status. Love this girl’s looks and body. I’ve never seen her in real life, but I would assume she moves regally.

  2. The first one immediately made me think red white and blue (which is funny for an India Day Parade)
    …I don’t partucularly like Manish Malhotra so the saree is pretty blech for me
    The ‘Tarun Tahiliani’ Lehenga is pretty but a bit too much and the ‘Shantanu-Nikhil’ Lehenga looks pretty but…still maybe too much?
    She looks pretty too, but I think she should have went with (what I’m assuming) is her natural hair from the first pick all the way (she looks so pretty) she has the whole extentions-framing-boob thing going on…
    bah…i still have a girl crush on her :)

  5. love the manish malothra sari.it looks so gorgeous with the red and blue.

    btw.i think priyanka was the greatest grand marshall so far after bipasha and deepika.plus priyanka always dresses simple and very beautiful.

    but deepika is still gorgeous.

  10. Sunny, she is even more beautiful in person, and very very down to earth. On ramp she is fab, and lovely skin, lovely smile…million dollar smile, and she does not choose her clothes apparently has a stylist (who sometimes should be sacked)…Tarun, S and N and Manish gave her these outfits to wear, and except the first saree, all the rest have been done to death…. I mean that literally.

  11. I totally agree with Jia. She looks very indian, yet I think she has an international face and international appeal. I really think she could have gone very far in modeling, perhaps farther than now when she has transitioned into acting. I could see her being a huge supermodel like Miranda, Gisele (ok maybe not as big as Gisele but you know what I mean). I love her outfits, they probably HAVE been done to death but I reckon this is the best they’ve ever looked! I love the lengha during the day.. might not have been TIME appropriate but it was event appropriate.

  12. Oh but I really really wish she would lose those ugly contact lenses. Sooooo ugly. It ruins everythinggggggg because of the “im trying to look white/like Ash” feel they give her.
