Vidya Malwade wore an ombré dress to the Arjun & Anjalee Kapoor Fashion Show and while she was right on the money where trends are concerned, her dress itself left a lot to be desired.
Ombré refers to fabric (and now, even leather! Remember Prada?) having a dyed, printed, or woven design in which the color is graduated from light to dark and is a big trend..its been around for a bit now and is going to be big for Spring. We saw many designers incorporate the look into their Spring 08 collections!
Vidya’s dress just doesn’t have that clear color gradation, and, instead of the play from dark to light, the color tone stays dark and only varies in the color itself! And that strip of navy/black at the waist does nothing for the dress; the shoes, too matchy!
