WHEN DIVAS GOT IT ALL WRONG
Fame is no guarantee to flawless style. Here’s what to learn from these celeb looks:
Who tricked this beautiful woman and put her into a wedding envelope? Sonam Kapoor creates a perfect rectangle in this outfit. The flared kurta-skirt ensemble makes her look short and broad.
LESSON LEARNT: Don’t pair two flared pieces together. It’s a recipe for disaster.
The easiest way to kill a great outfit is to find a poor fit. This is exactly what Vani Kapoor did to this brocade pantsuit. The fit and fall of the pants looks awkward, ruining a stunning outfit.
LESSON LEARNT: Check the fit, fall and length of your pants in the mirror. It doesn’t hurt to carry the shoes that you are going to wear with the pants into the trial room.
Kangana Ranaut rarely gets fashion wrong, but we are unhappy with this pick. Wrapping paper? Curtains? We wonder what was the inspiration. Bold stripes can be overwhelming when worn head-to-toe. In this case, we only get to see the stripes and not the one wearing it. Also, the way the dress folds on both the sides at the waist looks odd. And it’s too long for the actor.
LESSON LEARNT: Don’t get carried away by what you see on the ramp. Try the outfit, stand in front of the mirror, turn left, turn right, turn around before you make up your mind.
A heavily embellished outfit look can end up looking jarring if you team it with equally elaborate jewelry. Raveena Tandon didn’t need the necklace with the outfit. Just a pair of striking earrings would have been enough.
LESSON LEARNT: Forget jewelry when your outfit already has enough bling. If you just can’t do without jewellery, limit it to a beautiful ring or striking earrings.
Top knot has been trending but it doesn’t go with Anushka Sharma’s sari-blouse look. The hairstyle looks cute, but it would have worked better with a dress, gown or even pantsuits. We would have preferred something romantic and retro with her sari, like old Hollywood waves, soft curls or fingerwaves.
LESSON LEARNT: Always road test a new hairstyle before you wear it to a special occasion. Team it with what you’re going to wear and see how it looks.
The voluminous salwar doesn’t do a thing for Vidya Balan’s figure, the kurta looks crumpled and the cut makes her look stocky. Also, the chunky golden wedges are a bad pick, not meant to be worn anywhere by anyone, with any outfit.
LESSON LEARNT: Pick up flattering silhouettes that show off your curvy body, not the ones that make your frame seem larger.
Katrina Kaif’s satin slip dress looks crumpled and there is nothing great about the design. While the actor looked beautiful, this dress was something she should have restricted to the bedroom.
LESSON LEARNT: We know that it’s trendy to wear your negligee to a party, but you need to make sure your pick is gorgeous or else it will look like what it was originally meant to be – sleepwear.
