Also In Manav Gangwani

19

Even though designer Manav Gangwani didn’t show a collection at the IIFA Fashion Rocks event, he still got to dress up almost all the ladies at the IIFA Awards.

Kim wore a silver jersey gown with a silver Jimmy Choo candy clutch. Yesteryear’s actress Zeenat Aman (who was awarded a lifetime achievement award) wore a black satin gown with lace sleeves paired with a black clutch. Raima wore black chiffon gown also paired with a black clutch.

Kim does stand out for the sole reason that her dress has more pizazz because of the silver color and even though it’s a very simple design, it’s much better than Raima’s slouchy drape that really isn’t flattering. I would have preferred Zeenat’s gown without the one-sided shoulder detail but wow, she still looks so regal.

In Alexander McQueen

Malaika paid tribute to late designer Alexander McQueen by wearing a gown from his Fall 2007 collection. If the gown looks familiar it is because it was first featured in Vogue India worn by Gauri Khan, who also wore it in a maroon version at the launch of Lap (see here).

Am really surprised there are no full-lengths anywhere of Malaika.

In Manav Gangwani

Am on the fence about Kangana’s look in this Manav Gangwani green gown. The empire-waist makes her look tall and statuesque but in the close-up pic, her makeup and hair looks so worn out. Blame it on the weather?

P.S. Those earrings look lovely which makes me wish all the more that she had pulled back the hair.

Well Suited?

Can’t say there was a clear winner among men on this green carpet but there were definitely two very clear losers.

We love that Salman always adds a ‘Being Human’ element to his attire (this time it was a tie) but who can see the tie when they are distracted by that odd blue shirt with the black collar. Saif tried to make his very casual outfit formal by adding the pin-stripe blazer but my reaction is “why bother”. The blazer clashes so much with the v-neck.

Hrithik repeated his Kites London premiere three-piece suit but thankfully didn’t wear the NY premiere mini-tie. :P Vivek was quite an upgrade from last year, but my vote has to go to Anil in his two-piece. What IS his secret???

In Rocky S

It was a Rocky S gown for Dia Mirza at the IIFA Awards green carpet. I have odd feelings about this gown because it feels like a lehenga-choli stitched together (kinda like a ready-made-stitched-sari). On Dia, I like that she pulled the hair back to match the old-school vibe that the gown has but the jewels don’t quite gel with it.
