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.
