Mallika at Cannes 2010: Wall Street Premiere

88

Seems like the one-hit per day is really happening (the hit belonging to Ash).

I love Mallika in this nude bustier frock dress. It is such a stand out color on the red carpet and she looks so good and I love the detailing. But, how awful are those tie-up sandals. Am guessing she wanted to go for romantic/edgy look but those sandals are just an eye sore and complete deal breakers.

P.S. Why does this dress look so familiar. Am having another deja vu moment. Update: That’s because it is a Dolce & Gabbana and we’ve seen it on Carla Gugino and Eva Herzigova. Thanks Protyasha!

    • Totally agreed !!
      How on earth did a designer actually think that that dress could be flattering on a woman ????
      How on earth could a woman decide to think the same and wear it ?!

      I dont know whose crime is worse.

      And the hair…! I better stop here…

      • “Actually think that that dress could be flattering on a woman”
        That isn’t the concern when it comes to Avant Garde, she’s not exactly going shopping, she’s on the red carpet. That dress is ultra chic!
        Although a less voluminous hairstyle would’ve been a good foil to the dress.
        And maybe metallic pumps/peep toes. The booties make her legs look a little bit stumpy.

        • H – i agree… the dress is cutting edge fashion for the red carpet … not as experimental as a lot of them out there… but pretty daring for the red carpet.
          BUT…mallika is not a “cutting edge” kind of a personality. Hence the whole jarring effect of the dress and the person. You should check out Carla Gugino in the same dress and u’ll appreciate this dress a lot more

  3. She looks like the ‘Red Queen’ from Alice in Wonderland!

    The dress is edgy but the hair+makeup are nightmare-inducing. The shoes on their own are very, very sexy!

  4. I love MS but I am really dissapointed, I really expected to see her in a slithery sexy designer gown..I don’t like this whole outfit – from hair to toe. She looks like a BetseyJohnson’s ” runaway” model…sorry!

  5. With all her other film festival looks ever…this one is actually nice..There i said it..and THE HAIRDO actually isn’t that bad at all..I am truly amazed at myself for saying this..But for once she doesn’t look oh so bollywood (READ –aishwarya a couple o years back and the recent miss padukone, i mean i am all for the pretty saris but that particular one wasn’t red carpet friendly) .Yes the sandals are a bit of a let down but hell she for once Looks quite NICE

  6. I can only hope that a professional stylist did not do this to her..on an aside.. i think this women needs a posing coach the smile is freakishly the same in every single pic

  7. Oh my God, the expression is so funny! I can’t stop laughing.
    The dress itself is weird. The shoes, accessories and hair make it even worse.

  8. Oh dear, where to begin? Let’s start at the top and work our way down…

    1) Not really feeling the hairdo, but girl at least get your roots done!
    2) That manic smile has to go.
    3) No need to jut your girls out so unnaturally, we know you have ’em!
    4) Are you hiding an elephant under that skirt?
    5) Those shoes are horribly tacky.

    Even Aishwarya’s stylist could make you look better, and that’s really saying something!

    • Aishwarya criticism for Cannes is so exagerrated. Over the years Aishwarya’s appeances have been fine except for that one year when she went with the Neeta Lulla designs. And I think this year has been one of Aishwarya’s best.

      • I completely agree with you Aly, everyone harps on Aishwarya’s appearances at Cannes and it is over exaggerated. Other than the one year with Neeta Lulla with a few odd dresses and the one time she wore the silver cut out dress I think she’s always looked great.

        • C’mon it’s natural that people pick on Ash’s look. People tend to have very high expections on her given that she is so stunning and has access to the most expensive and exclusive designers in the world .And being grromed to be the way she is ( to be read as ‘ Confident in the way to dress and look) for the beauty paegents…it’s fair we pick on her.

    • Can’t get past the “manic” smile either….

      she looks frozen with that smile in every pose….either too smug or just in awe to see the bulbs go off…like a deer caught in the headlights…with the smile…

  9. Oh please! cut her some slack. She looks nice in that nude dress…like the hair too…its a risk that worked. It kinda suits her quirky image…
    Let’s not talk about the shoes…hehehe….of all the great shoes in this world, that one had to be picked….Jeezz

  10. I like her shoes & thats pretty much it. & I have a feeling her shoes are by GUCCI. & her dress may be DOLCE & GABBANA.

    • The dress could be Dolce and Gabbana since Scarlett Johannson wore a very similar dress to an event last summer, (though the detailing is different, the colour and structure is identical). That would account for the deja vu!

  11. im thinking the dress is a vintage viviene westwood!? and her shoes are fabulous on their own not when paired with that dress…poor thing!

  12. I echo the sweeny todd comment! Too madhatter for a red carpet event! She needs to keep her smile limited.. isnt that too wide??

  13. I don’t like *ANYTHING* that I see here.. hair, dress, smile or shoes… “WHY OH WHY Mallika you have to take risks every single time…” She has a great body, she should have chosen something elegant and classy… why try to be “different” and “noticeable” every single time? Also she has to change her expressions now.. each n every red carpet pic of MS looks the same smile-wise..

  14. i wouldnt have minded it with different hair, and maybe edgy heels, but maybe in black? It’s too matchy otherwise.

  15. I think she wanted to be edgy with her hair too but with the wierd smile… she just comes across as a umm.. crazy lady. I don’t mind the hair really, or the dress or the shoes but why (why…) the bizam look always?

  16. she’s at least not promoting light eyes and light hair by wearing light contact lenses and coloring her hair blond. she’s being pretty much herself and that’s what I like about Malika Sherawat! being fake and posing as someone else doesn’t win anyone anything. I like Malika for being so daring and so much herself. that’s her way of smiling or posing..had she tried to change her smile or her way of posing then she would be someone else and not Malika Sherawat. Good or bad but that’s Malika Sherawat..if people really want to see someone else then don’t expect Malika to be someone else :)

  17. She’s daring to be playful with her own deep dark brown eyes..not wearing contact lenses like Deepika Padukone. as far as her smile is concerned..someone complained that she should limit her smile but I think having a carefree smile is a winner. if she had limited her smile then she would have looked fake.

  18. Please stop posting anymore pictures of our Bollywood babes on the Cannes red carpet. Why are all of them going for the weird and the OTT! All of them are cute and have great bods but have managed to get it all wrong this time. Mallika looks ridiculous in that Alice in Wonderland outfit, those godawful shoes, that BIG hair and that frozen smile and she’s such a pretty girl too! Oh, the trauma you are putting us through!!!!

  19. everything about this look reminds me of something helena bonham carter would wear. i’m on the fence, on the one hand, it’s good to see bwood celebs take risks and wear different stuff. on the other hand, i’m not sure mallika’s made it work.

  20. What a nice surprise…Love the dress and it’s calming color. Not digging the hair, nor shoes much, and wish she had more of a Natural smile. Looks forced.

  21. Does Mallika remind anyone of Helena Bonham Carter????
    Anyway, the hair and shoes are awful. the dress is a tad better but really not that great.

  24. I don’t mind the hair but the frocky dress & shoes ae a letdown. Thecolour of the dress is fab though. Wish it was a gown instead.

  25. I think its edgy and fun! A refreshing look after all the steriotypical gowns. However, they could have been less ( or rather more ) creative with her hair. Looks and feels like a nest.

    I love her shoes, just wish she had not paired them with this dress.

  26. No No No No – its hurts just to look at this !! And to think I used to find her so earthy and sensual some years back !!

  28. She looks like the nightmare from Elm Street —-who told her to look like that? Plus the smile is making it 10 times creepier….she looks like she’s escaped from the loonie house

  30. I think she looks cute and fun!!The shoes should have been more delicate to go with her.The shoes look similar to Eva Herzigova’s Giuseppe Zanotti heels but who’s are they?

    • I am in agreement with you. She does not look all that bad; her look to me is fresh, playful and bold. I think the shoes actually makes the look wholesome.

  31. Am all for freedom of speech but I do think it is very insensitive to say things like she looks as if she has escaped from a loonie house etc….Do criticise the celebrity in question but why compare them with what your ideas of how people who live in asylum look like.Mental illness is a disease and I think it is in very poor taste to refer to people who suffer from it in such a way.
