The dress on Antara is from Anuj’s Fall 08 collection called ‘Eyelet It Be’. The collection was all about multi-functionality where each piece of square or rectangular fabric could be turned into varying lengths just by using the eyelets to hold the sides.
You may recall Anuj Sharma playing with the concept of ‘versatility/multi-functionality’ with his Spring 2010 collection titled ‘Button Masala’ as well.
Antara had a great start with the hair and the dress, wish she kept it edgy and hard… but she had to go and lose the plot with that clutch and those shoes. Especially those shoes. It’s a ‘Not Quite’ for us.

After Adhuna, we spotted Amala wearing a kalamkari dress/tunic from Asmita’s Fall 08 collection. It doesn’t surprise us to see her don fellow Hyderabadi’s clothes especially considering Asmita styles her husband (Nagarjuna) in almost all of his movies. What does surprise us however is that we haven’t seen Amala wear more of her! :p
While we love the tunic/dress, we do wish Amala paired it with a different set of pants. The beige totally washes out the print and makes it all fall flat.
On an aside, Asmita’s Fall 08 collection with all of its stunning kalamkari pieces has been one of our favorites from all that we’ve seen of the designer, and though the collection may be seasons old, the work/craftsmanship itself is timeless and we can’t wait for more celebs to discover/be spotted in it.

Unless we missed the ‘Nandita Mahtani For Sir Alistair Rai’ press release, the uncanny similarity between the two is pretty discomforting!
Update: Perhaps I should have been clearer… Nandita’s collection came first!

Spotted Deepika Padukone in what seems to be a Mandira Wirk dress at her upcoming movie’s press conference! We thought she looked rather lovely in her pink dress! You?
Below are two versions of the dress, one which highlights the bodice detail, and the other the bottom-half that led us to think her outfit might be a Wirk!
