Deepika at Youth Icon Awards: A First Look

Comment image 26

Sporting some big hair, Ms. Padukone walked the ramp for Manish Malhotra at the Videocon Youth Icon Awards where she won the award for Fashion Icon of the year. We love Ms. Padukone but a fashion icon award really didn’t make sense. To us, at least.

  1. I love big hair, but this is a little too much. I guess People Magazine gave the best dressed award to Sonam, so Dee gets the fashion icon award !!! to balance things out. MM clothes are a little too flashy for my taste,

  2. P&P sometime things dont make sense to us coz we tend to get focused on things around us and hence miss the larger perspective.
    Ill tell you a smal conversation with my little cousin (16) who lives in India. In a conversation she had mentioned as to how deepika’s clothes can be emulated just about from anywhere..and this is the reason she always looks for what deepika’s wearing coz she can quickly get the same look from nearby stores whereas others can be just watched and sighed. I couldnt argue with her ;).

    • I guess…but does that mean that designers are emulating Deepika? Personally I veer FAR AWAY from western clothes from the homeland. But really, is it THAT hard to do something other than jeans and a tank?? Is THAT what STYLE is??? An icon doesn’t really have to be emulated either, do they?? Grace Kelly and Dita Von Teese are my main fashion icons…and yes I do TRY to emulate them, but that doesn’t mean I’m in Christian Dior 24/7 (or at all).

      • You are right pdaervo. but see the age group she influences.
        One cannot deny it. Young indian girls in non metros are just begining to get fashionable (or whatever) and they are highly influenced by young stars. Tee and tank may not appeal to us but to them it does.

    • So if she is so easy to emulate and her clothes are so common place, why is she an icon? I understand the 16 yr old’s sentiments…I was like that in her age too.

  3. These awards have become a big joke. anyone and everyone gets an award. It is like a consolation prize.Ok so you don’t get an award in one awards ceremony , not to worry some other random award will be given to you.It is sad that even padma shris are handed out to just about anyone. Back to Deepika..I am not sure whey she is still around. She cant act , looks average and has a terrible diction. She is a good model though.Why do we have these actors as youth icons?? honestly there are so many people to look up to in science , sports , media.

  4. ugghhh….while the lehnga choli isnt as filmy or flashy as some other MM creations, Deepika’s hair is a disaster! i don’t think big hair can be flaunted very easily and what’s with that lion’s mane look?

  5. I like MM when its a wedding event or special occasion and his earlier work before he started having bling in everything. He dressed Aishwarya in Mohabetein and to me its one of her best looks and dressed.

    This outfit is something a bride should wear on her wedding day. Deepika winning a fashion icon…, I do think her style can be emulated easily but to me her style is very ordinary.

  6. I think when it comes to the indian youth (I am a 16 year old as well), they see whos more popular rather than who wears it better. The young crowd really have not much of a sense when it comes to high fashion. Can’t blame them. Personally, my vote would’ve went to Sonam.
