In Monisha Jaising

Comment image 35

Update: Ms. Padukone was not wearing the grey dress in Verve. Thanks ‘belle deese’.

Verve sure had one popular editorial… Katrina Kaif wore a dress used in that shoot and so did Deepika Padukone. Innnnteresting.

Ordinarily, we don’t see Ms. Padukone in a dress as risqué as this one so it sure makes for a change. However, am on the fence if I actually like it (the dress that is). We do like that she kept it minimal and let the embellishment on the dress do all the talking. The color looks good and the nude’ish/dewy make-up really works on her… but the dress itself doesn’t seem like it’s working on her. Like I said, on the fence.

On an aside, how gorgeous does she look in that shoot?! Love.

  1. The dress is very edgy but i think she should have has a dramatic makeup. The dress is rather plain, and some smokey, stand out eye makeup would have helped great.
    Now with the nude makeup it doesnt look complete. There is no “focus” point on this whole look, neither her face, not the dress.

  2. Ha ha that bra looks like some actresses like saira banu in 70s using it.. Dress is nice, love the color… OR are they two cornettos inside?

  3. This dress is perfect for her!!
    This look & her look at ‘Love Aaj Kal’ Premiere in Gurgaon (Just Cavalli dress) are my faves ^_^
    I wish she would dress chic & sexy more often rather than cutesy.

  4. Really P&p? I think she looks AMAZING! This is possibly one of her best looks, she looks HOT. I hate when people wear sexy dresses and have “sexy expressions on” which she totally does not.

    • I completely agree, she could have gone terrible wrong with this dress. The fact that she has kept things to a minimum helps, although I would have preferred a tad more make up and may be better pulled up hair. She rocks on the cover of Verve, love the hair piece. love the make up and dark nail polish.

  5. I am in the minority here but I like it on the ramp a lot more. DP just doesn’t have that oomph factor to carry it off even if she has the body. Others like Lara, Sush and Shilpa display that confidence and it carries them really well. Here it falls plain flat except in the shoot photo.

  6. Looks much better on the model. This is an edgy outfit and deepika should have kept it that way rather than formalizing it with her shoes and hair. Love the shoes and hair on the model.

  7. This girl is pretty period. i like the color but the dress works better on the ramp because of the fit, needs a little more looser fit unlike in deepika’s case where it is all stretched out.

    but it is elegant dress. Thanks P & P.

    99% of the cases, dresses work on Ramp better than real life.

  8. PnP this is NOT the dress she wore in the shoot. I have the magazine, it says the grey dress was a gaurav gupta jersey dress.

    The cutouts on the dress were a disaster waiting to happen but Deepika elevates it to a whole new level of class.

    What can I say? She’s gorgeous, statesque and has teyes I wouuld kill. *Dies in envy*

    Apparently, the cornetto or pointy style bras, a la Marilyn Monroe, are coming back into style. Remember it being showcased on one of the international fashion sites. As are high waisters- trousers/skirts, so a lot of the lingerie is also following the trend

  10. I’m in minority too. This is an eewww for me. I agree with Charan there isn’t any focus point. & the edgy bra part is…. Its better on runway.
