Draped

42

For their events, these ladies went with draped-style dresses. Sania had on a great color and the grey pumps really worked for the look, but those tan lines were a deal breaker!

I do not get why Avantika picked this black dress with that odd drape hanging on the side. It overwhelmed her and was very unflattering. The only good thing about this look were the cheery yellow peeptoes.

  1. I think Sania looks great; the colour really suits her (yuck tan lines). Avantika though – sigh – the girl really needs to get a stylist ASAP. And whats with the kabuki make up?

  2. Tan lines are the hazards of being a sportsperson.. quite a distraction though here.. but that aside didnt dig her dress.. and didnt like avantika’s also any bit.. both pretty ladies and we have seen them do better…

  3. Dislike both the draped dresses but Sania’s pink and grey does have potential. Avantika! Why would you choose such an unflattering silhouette? It swallows you whole!

  4. i feel bad for sania. cant think of many ways to hide the tan lines. PnP – any suggestions?

    avantika malik always looks like she has too much foundation on. too much concealer. her lips looks pale. ghostly.

  5. i hope avantika burnt that dress when she got home that night. she would have looked better in just a top and jeans or trousers. more fitted clothes look better on her body type.

      • my sister has a similar body type to avantika – petite frame with big chest and of an average weight. and fitted clothes look a million times better because they give a shape and a silhouette. and she did try out lots and lots of clothes b4 coming to that conclusion. :-)

  6. This is ridiculous. So what if she has tan lines? It’s obviously from her outdoors practice. Everyone knows she’s a sportsperson.

    So she should spray tan those tan lines? Go out in the sun and get suntanned without her sports gear? What?

    Good for her for not doing either of those things.

  7. Oh dear! Both just awful looks. Sania must know about camouflaging those ugly tan lines with makeup…. And poor little Avantika looks both frumpy and exhausted.

  8. Another thing. I don’t think people in India particularly care about tan lines. It doesn’t really need to grow into the “basic fashion rule” there.

    There are enough ridiculous standards thrust upon women even without another western standard entering the fray.

    • I would press thousands like for your comment! i just wrote on similar lines (hope they publish)…and now saw yours too…
      For some reasons the whole tan issue really pissed me off…

      • Actually on second thoughts I agree. PnP, you shouldn’t have brought up the tan lines, it’s no big deal – it’s not a fashion faux pas and she is a sports star not a model and she definitely does NOT need to know how to cover up tan lines. Ridiculous is right.

    • Agree. It was a sports related party,in London.. so there would be many more sport persons with so-called tan lines. No big deal, i’ve been there n seen many. PnP – Cummon girls, you can do better than that !

  12. how is someone berating Sania for her tan lines different from someone who defends a “good” filmmaker or a brilliant actress for dressing poorly? HHC is all about appearances — yes, we’re shallow like that, but at least everyone’s measured by the same yardstick.

    • Totally Agree! It’s ok for us to complain about the tan lines bcoz this is a fashion blog, and it’s also ok for Sania to show up with them bcoz she is a sportsperson.

      • My sentiments exactly! Sania is a wonderful role model for young girls in South Asia and she is and should be applauded for that. Nobody resents her tan lines, but I’m sure even she will agree that they look do look yuck. I have scars from childhood on my legs (falling off bikes and trees) and I do wear short stuff, anyone looking at my legs would think ‘yuck’ but heck I’m proud of my scars. I had a happy, busy childhood. Go SANIA! :D

  13. wow those are some serious tan lines. maybe a little makeup to tone it down? tan lines are ok but her ankles/feet look a bit too weird here. Other than that like sania. Colour is fab! Avantika is so frumpy! Someone get her a stylist NOW

  14. We all can agree that tan lines are a professional hazard. Sania wears them with pride as she should. In this case, we didn’t like it because she had on a great outfit and the tan lines were too jarring and distracting.

    If she’d worn a gold cuff or perhaps ankle sandals, the lines probably wouldn’t have become such a focus. To each their own.

    I have a tan line too from wearing a broad watch but then I am always wearing the watch so it is mostly covered.

  15. uneven tan, sun burns are occupational hazards for sports personality. I do not mind them but she could have worn better dress instead of draping bed sheet. As for Avantika, she is suffering from 70s star wife syndrome. Hope Imran is not suffering from 70s star syndrome.

  16. Hi RS the silhouette which avantika is wearing really gr8 in actual. it is from the upcoming designer in Uk. But i feel that she is too short to carry off the length of the garment and so the dress and avantika both r looking bad.
