This article could have easily been headlined as ‘What were they thinking’ but fashion is subjective blah blah (and we were warned). But even in the trial of softening the blow, we are digging dirt and it’s only for you. Because God knows, even with all the help in the world and an entourage of people picking outfits for them, Bollywood, at times, does get fashion as wrong as it could go. Unflattering clothes apart, sometimes celebs overdo/underdo it and nothing hurts us as much. Apart from that, stars who opt for style as a chore fall flat on their face and then there’s no saving them. Yes, there is always another day, another fashion outing but once spotted, you gotta call a spade, a spade. And we are at it again, doing the dirty job for the good of all.
Anyway, we have cropped a list of a few divas who stumbled and fumbled with their ensembles this week. Despite being bonafide show-stoppers, even leading ladies can chance upon days that just wouldn’t do them justice and this is proof. From Kareena Kapoor Khan to Deepika Padukone and from Sonakshi Sinha to Taapsee Pannu, here are the actors who made it to the worst-dressed corner.
Kareena Kapoor Khan
Kareena Kapoor Khan is Bollywood royalty and there no two ways about that. But not every day can be slay-day, you know. For in a recent case of airport spotting, KKK played it cool and casz with a Chanel dress and white kicks, black over-sized shade, you know the drill. But it’s the questionable denim jacket that has us on the wrong sleeve of hand. Guess the Begum was in a hurry?
Deepika Padukone recently took us on a trippy light show when she posed in a Alberta Ferretti ensemble for an event. An even though we love tints, the style was so unlike DeePee that it stuck out and not in a good way. Also the gem Valliyan earrings seemed like a misfit with the made-to-look ombre outfit.
Taapsee Pannu often takes the unconventional route and we are usually rooting for her. But the actress was recently seen wearing a Sonam Luthria skirt and blouse with an embroidered waist coat. While the intricate and fine details made for a pretty sight, the look didn’t give Taapsee the halo or glow she deserved. Nothing we have not seen.
Sonakshi Sinha has made it to the list for two reasons and it’s time we discussed! The first is an ensemble from the house of Chola and while we love the modern day twists to ethnic settings, the look didn’t sit well for many reasons. The blouse deserved a better skirt and vice-versa, the accessories were the sore thumb(s) and don’t even get us started on the footwear.
Talking about the floral dress by Johanna Ortiz, while we did like the vibe, the belt marred it all. Agreed that there wasn’t much scope for accessories on this one but why not experiment with hair and make up? Too drab, if you ask us.
