In Vivienne Westwood

Comment image 49


Wearing a Vivienne Westwood, Priyanka attended the premiere of Isn’t It Romantic on Monday evening in Los Angeles. I know the snug fit at the bust might be a deal breaker for some of you, but because she looked so good overall, it wasn’t one for me.

Loved her here. So, tell me, was it a deal breaker?

  1. Not exactly a deal breaker but definitely #boobfatigue. The top part is not just snug but weirdly designed as well.
    The make up and hair are amazing , so is the bottom half of the dress..love the colour,the print and the drama it brings to the outfit.

    • I majorly agree with the #boobfatigue hashtag. Could not be more on point. Yes every woman has every right to show how much skin as she wishes, I think that is a statement we all agree with. But is it necessary to show so much cleavage constantly in order to look good? Is that the only way a woman can command attention with her outfit? It seems like Ms Chopra and her stylist have been following that logic for her recent film’s promotions. Am I advocating for Ms Chopra to go covered head to two? Absolutely not. Do I think it is necessary she shows half her boobs whenever she makes an appearance as of late? Also, absolutely not.

  2. Yes, a deal breaker. Not for the obvious skin show but how ill-fitting and weird the top part is. The bottom half is so beautiful – silk, mustard and gorgeous. The top half is so so so bad. It really brings down the look despite the makeup, hair and lighting.
    I don’t think I’m a prude but PC makes me one. I want to tell her to cover up!

    On another note (leading to the might-not-get-the-comment-published territory): I wonder how these Indian stars are comfortable with such exposure. Now now before you get on my case by saying stars in India dress in revealing clothes too – I refer to all of them. Coming from a culture where one didn’t usually wear such clothes, I wonder how the families (mom esp.) feel about such pictures. Do they ignore it?
    I’m all for classy clothes with some hint of cleavage or a tease. but this is too much.

      • Among recent studies suggest that in India Pakistan and other south Asian countries. Our dads generation are the most watchers of porn and sleazy movies.
        So of course they would like to cover their daughters up to save their own insecurities.

    • It’s dirty/ cheap only if you think it’s dirty and cheap. I live abroad and women and girls wear shorts, bikini’s, off shoulder, cleavage showing clothes with confidence. They feel safe and not judged. Families do not feel dirty if their daughter god forbid, wore a short dress. No one is thinking along those lines. Beyond a point yes they will be judged here too, but Priyanka’s dress is not cheap…unless you feel it’s cheap. In India all our attention is on the woman’s body, talk about repressed sexuality!

      • I live abroad as well and may I tell you even for girls in school there is a strict dressing code. For instance no shorts can be more than 2 inches above knee. During their dance nights no cleavage revealing clothes, backless dresses etc. If it is dirty/cheap it is so. “Revealing clothes” are not synonymous to “progressive minds or country”. Unfortunately this is what majority of these celebrities think as they have no clue where to stop as they were not educated about foreign fashion growing up in our desi culture.

        • Yeah even I live abroad as well and the common westerners don’t show the body like Bollywood celebs. Only celebs in Hollywood dress in such level of revealing clothes. Wearing shorts and short dresses is common in India too, many regular people wear it.

        • Think about it- no one should comment on a woman’s right to dress /undress/ less dress.

          A man can pee out in the open without judgement but there is mass panic if half a boob makes an appearance!

        • Read my comment again. I said after a point it is frowned upon here too. And priyanka is not a school girl who needs to keep her skirt 2 inches above here knees. But a grown woman who can be responsible for her own decisions. Ofcourse there are rules for kids, they need to be protected. All I am saying a woman’s body is not cheap.

    • God saved us if all of us (living and the dead) decided to live as per what our fathers/mothers think is right. Would have just stopped evolution!
      I am sorry, but this is outright regressive thinking!

      • So glad someone said it! There’s nothing wrong with #boobfatigue in terms of switching it up, but all this ‘what would your parents think’ etc. garb is so backward minded!

        • Would you (not you specifically, I mean a common person from India) then be comfortable wearing this? Why or why not? If yes, would you do it in India?
          If no, why not? I’m genuinely curious.
          I think the author meant, “what would your parents think” as a way to deal with the different value system one grows up with vs. one works in? Would you abandon the original notion of modesty completely for another just because this is the West ?

          • Okay so my personal preference doesn’t favour risque outfits generally, but hypothetically if it did, and if you’re asking if I would wear it in the context you suggest, then for a red carpet appearance I think I would. Because most people don’t dress up the way they do at red carpets in their day-to-day life so going all out for one night can be fun, and you are in a space where you can experiment and dress however you want.
            Regarding the ‘what would your parents think’ comment, I have no issue with people respecting their parents’ respective sensibilities, but my point is – how can people speak for other people’s parents? Like it’s no one else’s place to suggest that anyone else’s mom/dad could be uncomfortable since you can’t know. I can vouch that they’re probably just proud of them (because achievements matter more than outward appearance), and even our parents’ generation had to have been different to our grandparents’ one, so it’s not like they aren’t familiar with times changing. Hope that kind of answered what you were asking.

    • Their families are proud of their achievements. I’m sure PC’s mom is ecstatic that her daughter is so successful and well respected in her profession. I really don’t think this comment is appropriate for this blog. Please take your regressive thinking out of this page and dump it somewhere else.

      P.S. If you have a son/daughter, please let him/her dress up the way they want to. Just let them be. Instead of focusing on his/her clothes, please ensure that you raise a good human being.

      • If you think skin show is the only measuring yardstick of “progress” then it is your prerogative. If you believe boobshow is the way woman can command attention to herself, then it is your thinking and every other opinion doesn’t have to be regressive.
        Calling out a bad dress and excessive skin show is part of fashion and very much a part of this blog. You don’t have to be so acerbic in asking people to “dump” their thoughts elsewhere.
        Clothes are important in society. That’s the basis of all this fashion talk and even this blog. Being a good/bad person and dressing up are two DIFFERENT aspects of a person and no one is talking about how good/bad PC is as a person. IMO both are important and a big part of raising/being a human being.
        The comment was on how an Indian family would suddenly accept this type of exposure. I’m sure she is proud of her and so are all of us which is why it is so sad that she is resorting to skin show to command attention when not many in Hollywood themselves do that.

        • ‘ Skin show’ shows your regressive thinking more than hers! Her skin her choice? Look how Definition of modesty has changed since our grandparents … to parents to our generation! What was once unacceptable is acceptable now.

          So maybe you you are still offended by a boob…. others are not!

  3. The fit at the bust was obviously intentional, as much as it is a signature Vivienne Westwood. I loved this look, more so if you watch the videos and see this in movement.

  4. Ill fitting outfit, waist up looks like she is choking and bursting out at seams. The make up was not up to her mark. overall a disaster.

  5. yes it is a dealbreaker, she looks ready to pop. it just looks painful and silly. Nothing wrong with wanting to show cleavage but this looks like she is wearing a size too small

  6. The boob-show is definitely a deal breaker here. It looks super odd. Like the dress minus the bust fitting and her makeup is absolutely awesome.

  7. The tight fit at the bust is a problem because it distracts from the flow of the dress -given that there is so much bunching on the skirt, it would seem that that should be balanced by clean lines up top – instead, the tight fit is making it bunch up at the bodice as well. If the bodice were let out just an inch or two, it would lay comfortably and flow nicely. And in fact, VW’s other corset dresses do lay comfortably up top, so this seems to have been an issue of the stylist not having the dress adjusted to PC’s measurements probably.

    Beautiful colors, though – perfect for her skin tone.

  8. PC looks pretty of course but I hate the gown. Not liking the colour in the bottom half and material in the top-half. Fit of the bust is a different issue altogether.

  9. I think the problem is most western designers do not know how to design for the indian bodies. We have big boobs and a tiny waist. And in PC’s case she has broad shoulders. She looks amazing and a superstar but the fit of the dress could be better.
