In Monisha Jaising

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.

From Real Life To Photo Shoot

For her Filmfare shoot, Kareena wore the strapless version of the Manish Malhotra sequin dress, seen first on Priyanka during the HDIL Couture Week. After a long time, this was a look we had loved on Priyanka (before she moved on to this).

Deepika on Verve India: (Un)Covered

Update: Ms. Padukone is wearing the dress and not the jumpsuit. Thanks ‘RK’ and ‘belle deese’.

The November edition of Verve serves up Ms. Padukone wearing a Monisha Jaisingh sequin jumpsuit fresh off the Couture Week runway. While I am not a fan of the design of the jumpsuit (the v-neck), angelic is what came to mind when I saw Deepika on the cover. Your thoughts on the cover?

Dressed-Up, Dressed-Down

The thing with Ms. Tandon is when she gets it right or even relatively right, she can really hit it out of the ball park. Relatively speaking.

Neither of these looks are much to write home about but she does don both the dressed-up and dressed-down looks rather well. Especially love the kurta paired with the jeweled minaudiere. A stunner she is, just wish her clothes would catch up to it.

Those shoes though, we’d have given ’em a miss.

The Zanotti Ladies

There are some Zanottis that I lust for but having said that, this pair has not caught my fancy. But, I also believe that sometimes you can make an accessory look good by pairing it with the right dress. Unfortunately, in these two’s case, neither made it work. Ms. Goel’s dress was too frumpy and I am not quite digging the pink with the orange combo on Neelam.

Who do you prefer, either or neither?
