When Black Is "Blah"


    Even a gorgeous Sushmita couldn’t spice up this black dress at the DVD release of the movie “Samsaara”. Someone remove that belt from the dress and hand her a steam iron to remove the wrinkles and then we might have something good in our hands!

    And I don’t understand this obsession of flimsy ribbon belts on outfits. So ugly!

    1. Hi,
      Ribbons, stoles, long scarves and thin stripped pieces of cloth will make it to the next trend of what was earlier the belt. (broad, then thin, then like a brocade, etc…)
      I have seen ribbons on many dresses, kurtis and tops in B’bay and i only see the trend picking up – often these misplaced-looking faimilar strings are used to elevate, attract or just to give a flowing look to the attire.
      eg. black hosiery top paried with navy blue pants – with a deep almost matt orange colored strip running through the hooks and ending up with a bow on the side. at first, it may not appeal to the eye, but it looks different, by that i dont mean bad diff!

      Ps. I liked your take on designers dressing ugly – i have my share of ‘how could she’also. “:)
