Being Human: Through The Decades

Comment image 39

For Salman’s charity, ‘Being Human’, the celebrities were out in droves showing their support both on and off the runway.

Each actress walked the runway representing one particular decade, starting right from the Twenties. And speaking of Twenties, it was Preity Zinta who walked in a look from her movie Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. Following which, Katrina did the Thirties in a Gauri and Nainika dress and Rani Mukherjee the Forties in a Manish Malhotra lehenga.

Bipasha walked in a Sunaina Puri dress representing the Fifties and Karisma did the Sixties in a Manish Malhotra sari. Anyone else have a Zubeida flashback looking at Ms. Kapoor? πŸ™‚ Sushmita did the flamboyant Seventies in Raakesh Agarvwal and the Eighties were all Priyanka’s channeling Madonna in a Sunaina Puri design. And finally, it was Kareena Kapoor for the Nineties who walked in Varun Bahl and mapxencaRS to INXS‘s Need You Tonight complete with a hat and whip..

  1. I believe Priyanka represented the 80s not the 90s, and she sooo rocked the look!!! Preity looked like the flamboyant 20s girl, and Karishma the perfect 60s yester-year actress!!! Kareena and Bipasha also fitted their parts, but I wish Kareena wore something else witht he favor of the 90s…nonetheless these 5 ladies looked gorgeous!!!

  2. liked all except 80’s & 90’s. they do not look much 80’s or 90’s to me while the other dresses are giving the vibe of the decade they are representing mainly karishma’s and sush.

  3. Preity n Kat look just awesome!!!flamboyant 20s n elegant 30s! they carried their looks so well!!!

    pretty much every1 looked good except kareena..she was fugly n that thing,..yuck
    PCs dress wasn’t so nice..but still she managed 2 pull it off..

  4. LOL, Preity sported this look in one of her songs in Chori Chori Chupke Chupke.
    Rani had this look in Saawariya, and Karishma had this look in Biwi Number 1. They all starred with Salman Khan in those movies!

    • Lol. Nice observation.
      1) Rani is my favourite here ! Awesome !!
      2) Karishma is sooooo cute !!!
      3) And Sush totally works the dress.
      4) Katrina – looks glam !

  5. Other than Bipasha and maybe Sushmita, I think the actresses don’t quite pull it off here (solely in terms of modeling the clothing). Bips looks fierce and I love the confidence Sush exudes. Priyanka looks her ‘try-hard’ self, Preity and Rani are mostly lost in clothing. Katrina looks like the ultimate wallflower and Kareena’s pout ruins what is otherwise an amazing pose.

    Karishma is in between. She looks and acts the part of the 60s but the pink color against her skin and the lighting wash her out.

    • totally agree! and the hairstyles does not represent the respective decades. waves on top of head in twenties, sleek straight with middle parting in 70’s, extra volume for 80’s, a sleek bob for 50’s would have suited much more.

      This is just a flop for me.

  6. iam all for charity and i tremendously appreciate this effort but its really sad that at the same time of the year when Paris Fashion week is coming to a close, we have whatever thats been happening in the past few days under the name of couture week, which again sadly, is one of the umpteen half baked fashion weeks that have cropped up all over the country..
    I wish bollywood and its people would leave Indian Fashion alone and vice versa. Period.

    • Couldn’t agree with you more. I can’t believe the things they do in the name of fashion. This is more Halloween and less high fashion.

      • ha ha!! so true!!just look at the state of them!!
        I am appalled how Fashion in India is going backwards!!
        I mean first v hav the neeta lulla anniversary show, and then a queeny dhody show, then a karan johar show and now this!!
        i mean what next?
        all arenas of public sphere like sports, arts, fashion, politics and business, just hav this specific group of bollywood ppl taking over.. I mean come on! really?
        these ppl are not just jacks of all trades but elephants who plunder whatever they step into! Rant over. Sigh!!!

        • Oh !! — so agree with you!!
          This Bollywood-ization of the Indian fashion industry needs to be stopped -NOW!!
          Otherwise, we Indian fashion industry is never going to make it’s place in fashion world and will NEVER be taken seriously!

          • Thats true. Bollywood has entered sports (eg SRK buying teams),
            business, politics, fashion and what not in general.
            It wld be nice if they stick to just charity alone.

        • My fave rant on this blog too!!! Like I’ve written about Akshay Kumar hosting a cookery show… why, because he was a line cook in some Thai restaurant. In that case, half of Hollywood qualify too…
          I completely agree with you, but what to do…

  7. Exquisit! I must admit I think Rani looks stunning and graceful, and the dΓ©coletΓ© of the outfit suits her very much. They all look beautiful, so proud of our leading ladies πŸ™‚

  8. I love the 30’s look (is it really the 30’s?) purely bcoz of the lady…Kat – how statuesque does she look! She has the style and look to carry such a strong color.

    Also the 50’s look by Bips – she nails the runway pout, what confidence!

  9. Wow Rani knows how to walk the ramp with grace! πŸ˜€ normally girls Get very nervous on their debut, but Rani seems so experienced! πŸ™‚
    Well all of them are lukin gr8. Well this show was The best of 2010 actually it was the best of all the shows! πŸ™‚

  10. can someone please explain to me how does kareena look 90s??? besides she looks terrible..the worst of them all. Priyanka does not look 80s to me..she looks like she went into naughty but nice ($ex shop) and wore the mannequins clothes. sush looks great. Karishma looks awesome!!! she stole the show for me. She’s just so much better than kareena..its a shame that she took early retirement. Bips looks the great. rani and katrina meh! and preity looked awesome

  11. Is the styling correct with respect to the decade they represent ? …. I am not too sure … something seems off …. anyone has any knowledge about retro fashion because mine is sadly lacking ….. Though to my ignorant self the dresses and decades do not match ….

    Any help please ?

  12. Bipasha and Sush really bring it! So fierce!
    Priyanka falls completely flat for me. That outfit needed a little more spunk and personality.
    The others are fun, but nothing out of the ordinary.

  13. Forget about the stars for a sec, shall we? The entire show looked to be SO cheap and horrendous!!! I mean, is that a 20’s outfit? Really? It looks like some half baked fashion research by a first year student with a bad library or no internet. That would’ve earned me a fail at design school for sure- and I wasn’t even a fashion student. The clothes, accessories, hair, everything… yuk.
    On the good side, the only one fitting the bill was Karisma Kapoor, and that was probably due to her doing Zubeidaa.
