Priyanka In L’Officiel India: Decoded

89

Now that all the pictures of Priyanka’s editorial have surfaced, what’s your verdict on it?

While I think big hair and harsh make-up was way too overwhelming and didn’t do justice to the the outfits, Priyanka loved it. She thinks that the whole editorial has a very retro-power-woman vibe albeit updated! And since an editorial isn’t just about clothes but a ‘story’, the model (make-up, hair et al) adds that extra dimension to it.

P.P.S. You can catch the pale pink gown in the last pic on Priyanka at the Next Gen Asia Launch Reception Here.

  1. Don’t like it. She looks to be trying way too hard as usual.
    I think Priyanka does a lot of stuff just to “keep up” with some of the newer actresses instead of trying to make some sort of impact and do something she feels passionate about.

  2. The hair is very Dolly Parton-esque and only really works well in the 2nd to last picture with the pink dress. But the clothes are gorgeous!

  3. PC has a certain damsel-in-distress vibe to her and that makes this fierce woman look fall a little short. I think Bipasha would have pulled this off much better.

  4. What an awful looking photoshoot. They actually managed to make her look unattractive. Priyanka tries way too hard to be edgy and never looks comfortable.

  5. GAH! what happened to my comment? It got chopped!
    AS I WAS SAYING, <3 the makeup (am currently into the va va voom) and the hair…in it’s short form
    Short hair (above the shoulders) just suits Priyanka better, whether it’s flat, volumnous or somewhere in between
    ALSO, I hate the contacts, dark eyes would have been so much…sexier

  6. Yuck. The shoot is nice but the model is all wrong. Priyanka Chopra’s face has the same Katrina Kaif problem. No matter what you do, they always look the same. Though Katrina is way better looking.
    Love the Ferragamo gown and the white pant suit though.

  7. I TOTALLY agree with Priyanka! Weird because I thought the EXACT same thing as I scrolled through these pics and then read your comments, Payal. Gah, I missed Piggy Chops’ head full of hair. She looks fierce.

  10. do not care for the outfit on the cover and the white suit. The rest of the outfits are great, but the hair ruins the whole look. BIG head small frame the proportions are wrong.

  11. naa.. the hair and the makeup spoiled it for me too.. some of the dresses are uber chic.. but the heels! oh the heels!! i wonder if she sprained herself during the shoot!

  13. I love love love it!!! This is what editorial should be. The hair is exagerated but that’s kinda the point. Do the pictures have a kind of eastman colour feel to them? Or is that just me? Even if it is just me, that extra touch makes these pictures that much more genius.

  14. It’s a different look altogether.. I say … she looks very Amy Winehouseque with the big puffed hair and eyeliner.I hope she keeps this look only for photoshoots and not real

  15. =D

    I just can’t take this fashion spread seriously. The ginormous hair? The sleazy 70s vibe? It’s over-the-top and crazy, and it’s totally intentional. I love spreads like this one, simply because they’re fun! I think many designers and photographers have the tendency to take themselves too seriously, which results in the models having to wear strange clothes and stand in awkward and uncomfortable poses, all for the sake of “haute couture”.

    Like Rezia, I think this was a brilliant editorial, and definitely unique – something that many other editorials tend to lack.

  16. I second Priyanka on this. I think it’s a really good editorial, the big hair, crazy make-up looks really good since the entire vibe is very retro. I love the close-up picture, Priyanka reminds me of Helen in that picture.

  17. You know, I’ve always thought that Indian women have fabulous hair no matter what, but Priyanka alone has dispelled that for me. Even with stylists, professionals- it’s just bad!

  18. OMG! I love Priyanka here. And look at that awesome hair. I’m not a Priyanka Chopra fan so my gushing is quite honest and honestly, I think she wears the clothes much better than the models on the ramp.

  19. O.M.G

    the cover pic and the one next to it!!!i cant get over the fact that her legs looks so alarmingly THIN! almost to the point of looking like chopsticks :O

    i like the photoshoot but priyanka lacks the oomph

  20. Fantastic, fierce, fhenomenal! PC does have a stamp on it. I like the feminine pink on her, where she looks like a powerhouse instead of a pansy. I love the greenl’officiel cover pic. PC is another rare desi who can carry off western apparel beautifully! Sonam is another who can do so as well.

  21. ditto @ anoo .. On first look I thought it was Amy Winehouse.. but then realized that’s PC… She looks good.. but everytime I look at her photoshoots .. i just wonder HOW THIN IS SHE!!!

  23. I like the clothes and the make-up/hair, but the shoot is ruined by the fact that PC has the same expression and tilts her head in exactly the same way in every single photo.

  24. Ooh I love the big hair and makeup, though I wish she had shaken it up a bit..with all that hair and makeup and those gowns, she still succeeded in making this one boring spread! Come on Priyanka!

  25. I loved the spread. I think I can see what she means by it being fun to work the big bouffant-ish hair & the loud makeup…..hey when you know you can’t work it in real life, what’s the harm in playin retro doll when an international mag pays you to do it?? I think its a fun spread, quite different from the usual sleek ponytail/straight sheen/wild curls/out-of-bed hair route that most go with all the time. And the oufits are snazzy!! I especially liked the pantsuit – I think P.Chops has carried it off quite well, and only few can. And am lusting the pale green animal skin tote featured in the 2nd pic……awesome!

  26. love the clothes except for the white pants. Also the short hair looks great and sexily stylish. I wish they tried to capture her from other angle instead of only from her right face side……very monotonous creatively.

  27. the big hair in pic 2, 4 and 5 make her look awful, like a LION!! if it was a jungle/african theme it would have worked, not here.

    But saying that I do like the ultra glam spread, she just doesn’t look that great except the cover she looks good there, but strangely the same outfit and hair etc doen’t look too good in the standing pic?? why priyanka???

  30. I sought of like this shoot but only because probably its a one-off thing and I haven’t seen her look like this before……. but then I am looking at some pics now and YES! I haven’t really seen her look like this before! In some pics she doesn’t even look like her normal self… i am talking about the photo on the cover and the 5th one in particular. This entire thing could have been done better..maybe a bit classier and not so much in ur face slapstick retro!

  31. @premrogue : ’tilts her head in exactly the same way in every single photo’

  32. she looks stunning…..minus the hair…if they did that hair for one pic it would still be okay…and i hate her for being so skinny…its not fair:(

  33. I like the clothes. The hair is just not cutting it for me. Too big, too wannabe-ish, too plasticy… I understand that she was prolly going for that plastic larger than life look… but it just doesnt work for me… Her look in every frame just looks so ‘calculated’ it loses all charm..

  34. I used to love Priyanka, but for past 6 months I think she has entered a disaster stage she looked horrible during filmfare awards and has been posing with weird hair styles and clothes in these shoots, she needs a good lesson from a senior Miss World Aishwarya Rai, Aishwarya rose to popularity not just because of her looks but because of her personality and careful selection of clothes, I dont know any other woman from the Indian film fraternity who has been on Letterman, Oprah, Martha Stuart, Cannes and so on and so forth Aishwarya’s fame is enormous and I doubt if anyone else would ever reach that, and if Priyanka continues to dress horribly with such make up and hair then she is not going to get anywhere.. learn some style and grace from Aishwarya.

  35. Style and grace from Aishwarya? I can’t stop laughing. Priyanka doesn’t need to learn how to fake a personality, or a British accent sorry.
    Priyanka looks really good! I don’t see any other actress pulling off this look.

  36. I LOVEE the whole retro vibe of this photoshoot! It totally screams ‘bored, rich, trophy wife from the ’70s’!! LOVE how they styled her too, she looks like a real model her, having fun, looking confident and beautiful. Unlike her other photo shoots, where she’s just standing there posing awkwardly, this one actually tells a story…and i love how she looks and poses in every dress

    @ siddharth – Thsi is a photoshoot for a magazine, she’s meant to look over the top LOL And if there’s someone who Priyanka shouldn’t learn styling tips from its Aish. Aish has to be the most boring dresser ever…and the more i think about it, Priyanka is pretty boring too when it comes to her style…she only dazzles in photo shoots like this

  37. The clothes are lovely, the colours are beautiful, the makeup and hair are edgy but it doesn’t work for Priyanka. While she is a pretty girl, her look in each shot seems too stiff or awkward. There is a natural joie-de-vivre that is missing here.

  38. Why is her face always angled the same way in almost all her pictures..?Not just these pics but also in other photo shoots…!

  43. she looks fab HOTT!! She has carried off the green out fit superbly well! Love the 2nd outfit and 7th outfit! Her outfit seems to be blending with the color of the dress in the 2nd one. she looks fab in the 4th and last pic. She reminds me of amy winehouse may be because of her hair style esp in the 3rd pic.The bag in 5th and 6th pic is nice.Over all Fantastic!

  44. Who DOESN’T “try too hard” in everyone’s opinion? I think Priyanka looks great in most of these shots. Beyond great. I love the hair, makeup and styling and most importantly I love the cover!

  45. Amazing clothes. Especially love the second dress.
    She looks kinda possessed in these shots. I prefer the shots where she’s not looking in the direction of the camera >_<
