In Narendra Kumar

57

Monica went bold in a Narendra Kumar gown featuring a plunging neckline. While the gown doesn’t reveal the navel on the model, it (the gown) dips low enough to do so on Monica. If only, it didn’t. Would’ve loved the look then. As is, this look was an almost because she really looked great!

Am very curious though, to know your thoughts about the look. Let us know with your vote (and comments, of course)!

  1. if i had a body like that and i were her age, i wouldnt be shy at all. i’d be all in tasteful short and sexy dresses. having said that, this dress is not tasteful.

  2. My DH thinks this looks like something made out of a curtain. I think she looks smoking. (Maybe he’s just saying that as I’m sitting right here!!)

  3. Being able to see the navel in this dress makes me cringe! It’s ugly, trashy and plain weird. She needs someone like me on her side – I would have never let her set foot outside.

  4. a person lil less gifted up there could have been effortless.
    and that awkward “mother of god,i must make sure the balls don’t fall off my chest” posture is making it look worse..
    but the dress ain’t all that bad.she could have done better!

  5. The look would have been better if the neckline stooped at that mid strap..I would be scared to wear this outfit under the current conditions in the capital..

  6. its hilarious how most regressive indian women think! no wonder ur sons grow up to treat women like furniture. get ur minds out of the gutter! theres nothing vulgar at ALL abt this dress… its so beautifully elegantly crafted and fits her like a glove. whats wrong with navel anyway?! ur mothers show it off all the time with their sarees! it seems to me like monica seriously has some haters… maybe ur all stylists who shess rejected? :-/ #justsaying

    • applause. this site is full of super judgemental catty women i tell you.

      but hey they’re backwardness in thought has so much voyeuristic value. i come here sometimes to see what has unfolded in the hhc kitty party of naysayers.

    • this dress was not meant to show the navel and i think that’s what most people’s gripes were about it. for being such a progressive woman yourself, i’m surprised you felt the need to be so rude and make outlandish comments

    • And you, my lady Judy, are probably the stylist she has hired!
      There is nothing regressive in a dress looking wrong n someone…Monica usually looks nothing less than fabulous! This time, it didn’t work… That’s it.. There is no need to make a social agenda out of a navel display!

    • get ur own mind out of the gutter–did some indian dude kick you to the curb or something? ‘so beautifully elegantly crafted’? normally, no one seems to need to bring peoples mothers up on a celeb fashion blog, but since you did-did your’s drop you on your head at birth? the girl is half naked on the red carpet-ever hear of leaving something to the imagination?

    • This has nothing to do with a social agenda or “regressive” Indian women, Judy. This is just plain tacky. Plus, the fit stinks. Look at it on the model. That’s how its supposed to look. Most runway fashions like this are modified for the red carpet – modified, that is, to enhance the wearer, unlike in this case. If men appeared half nude on the red carpet, we’d be just as critical. Get a grip.

  7. Payal, I agree with you. I think she owns this look, but only until the fuzzy navel kicks in. I get a visceral feeling when I see that navel.

  8. HATE THE NAVEL DISPLAY!! It looks so vulgar and ghastly! What was she thinking? She has a fab body no doubt, but she could have gone with something better than this tacky display . .

  9. the fact that the plunge ever so gently and precisely cradles her (EW!) navel … makes it stand out even more! and i have an itch to go put a cork in it. WHY would anyone highlight their navel?

  10. As someone in the comments said, it would definitely go better on someone less heavy. The dress looks so sexy and chic on the model while it leaves very little to imagination while Monica wears it… Short of what Mallika Sherawat has worn in the past with her bare-it-all cutouts.

  11. I’m not reading this thread – but a friend from Canada wrote to me about it asking me how I “felt” about all the “hate”. I had no idea what she was talking about…and I’m going to refrain from finding out. But, I hope a few of you care enough to read this.

    I appreciate fashion. I am proud of my choices. I’m happy with the dress I wore, and I don’t mind if you don’t like it…that is entirely your prerogative. Whatever I do, I do with the utmost honesty towards myself and what I like – not what the industry expects of me. But, if you are calling me trashy…or slinging dirty words at me – especially in this day and age, in this particularly sensitive time where we need a heavy dose of female camaraderie….come on. let’s not be so regressive. that’s just plain silly.

    but, WOW – I guess this dress garnered a stir. Respect to High Heel. People definitely look out for your posts, and I think that’s great.

    • if your not reading this thread why did you feel compelled to post on it? ”if you don’t like it…that’s your prerogative’–no one asked you for your permission to express their opinion.’ let’s not be regressive’-oh,please. face it, you were trolling for attention in a cheesy outfit and got called on it.

  12. Monica seems upset about this post. Caught her complaining on twitter…..

    Monica Dogra?@Shaair

    Brought to my attention from a friend abroad. Disappointed in my favorite gender. And targeted unfairly. WTF.

    these women are calling me trashy…targeting each other and fighting. all over a dress. i find that pretty sad.

  13. necklines high or low
    navel or no navel
    dress or no dress
    few women will ever have as much spirit, intellect & style, talent, personality or character
    that the Monica’s of this world possess.

  15. so here’s the thing. i just watched the stardust red carpet. and came back to say … forget the navel … her modesty was being comprised otherwise due to lack of careful double taping .. i wonder how the poor thing spent the rest of her evening. stiff i’m sure. and the skin show doesn’t look as bad in the pictures as it does on reel.
