At the Grazia Millenial Awards, Deepika was seen in a head to toe green look from Ashi Studio. Sure, the color was striking and Ms. Padukone being her looked nice but the more I look at her pictures (especially ones where she is only showing off the back), it feels like she has just wrapped a very shiny blanket/comforter around her. And once I had that image in my head, can’t unsee it.
Are you recovered from Cannes red carpet yet? We have, even if for the most part it left us generally meh. If there was one thing that stood out to us, it was the sheer number of white-toned gowns we saw during the film festival.
White is a great pick since it tends to really pop on the red carpet, and when done well, it’s high on impact. But on the flip-side, flaws seem exaggerated too. All said and done, Diana in her Amit Aggarwal sari was our favorite for toeing the ‘sari-but-contemporary’ line well. A close second was Sonam whose tuxedo was definitely high on impact, it’s a pity then that the fit on those pants let her down (see what we said about the flaws).
How did you think our tinsel town ladies fared? Have a favorite?

Day two on the red carpet saw Aishwarya in a feathery white gown by Ashi Studio. After yesterday’s outing, this felt like the safe fallback and while I like a white gown because it stands out on a red carpet a lot more, the heavy eye makeup was a bit of a downer. It looked nice in the closeups but too racoon eye-ish from far away.
Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of this other big fat wedding celebration taking place in Hyderabad this week. Shriya Bhupal (creator of the Shriya Som label) is getting married to Anindith Reddy on Friday and for her pre-wedding functions, the designer has been keeping it quite interesting by opting more for international labels.
