Hits n Miss - Week of 25th Jan

Who: Mallika Sherwat
Where: Directors Guild Awards

Mallika hits all the right notes in this silver metallic body-con dress paired with silver gladiator shoes. Her hair is big though - step away from the hairspray, Mallika..And I would have gone with sky-high stilettos with this dress.

Who: Farah Ali Khan
Where: Ritu Kumar's event

Farah looks very sophisticated in this one-shoulder tulip dress in eye-catching blue. I esp. love the big flowers on the shoulder (reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw's flower brooches) and the same colored purse.

Who: Aanchal Kumar
Where: HDIL race

I was flipping thru the pictures of this event and the dress caught my eye - simple, yet so elegant. The simple silhoutette emphasizes her slim shoulders and the red lips are a nice touch. The clutch is perfect.

Who: Amrit Maghera
Where: Femina's unveiling of 50 most beautiful women

She does look genuinely happy to be at this event. On second thoughts, so would I be if I was one the 50 beautiful women in India.. I wonder if all 50 of them did a thank-you speech, hmmm.. Anyways, I digress - back to the dress. I love the sexy draping of this dress and the metallics on the shoulder. The clutch is a little big - two sizes smaller would have looked better.

Who: Anushka Sharma
Where: Femina's unveiling of 50 most beautiful women

Another silver dress - this time paired with black shoes. Anushka has changed her makeup/hair style and has gone from her demure look to a sultry one. I give her six months before "I will never wear a bikini but the scene demanded it":-) She sizzles here - certainly has the legs to pull this look.

Who: Kareena Kapoor
Where: Launch of Lonely Planet magazine

Kareena has gone for a minimalist look with this black and white halter gown. I wish she had accessorized - it would have taken the look up a notch. My number one rule when it comes to dressing is always, always wear earrings. Since she has pulled her hair back - hoops or dangles would have upgraded this look. She also needs to upgrade the man in her life but thats a story for another blog...

Oh no, what was she thinking!!

Who: Mandira Bedi
Where: HDIL race

This is a perfect example on how not to wear orange. The dress print is so tacky and the bag is all wrong. Mandira babes, you need to go back to ur sarees with spaghetti blouses.

Mid week round up

Who: Mugdha, Amrita Rao and Celina
Where: Shreyas Talpade's bday bash

I didn't like the egg yellow flip-flops that Mugdha wore.
Amrita Rao is on a mission to prove she is hot and sexy!! Like the dress and shoes but would have preferred the clutch in silver color.

Who: Shamita Shetty and Sophie
Where: Escobar launch

I really dig Shamita's outfit - simple and very classy..This is a very Jennifer Aniston outfit.

Who: Kareena Kapoor
Where: 3 Idiots success party

Love the dress!! I think she can wear a sack and get away with it:-) Those look like Christian Louboutin shoes.

Who: Chitrangada Singh
Where: Gaurav Gupta's Store launch

Wow!! She looks hot - not sure about the shoes though.

Shop the Star Style

I loved the Louis Vuitton dress that Malaika wore but unfortunately my budget does not extend to LV:-) Found something similiar at Lipsy - they do ship to US.

You can buy the Nicole Miller dress that Preity Zinta wore to the Stardust awards at Nordstrom and its on sale!!!

Steal Deepika's look without busting your budget with the Sequin Mesh slip dress from Shopbob and a black stretch belt from Express.

Hits n Miss - Week of 17th Jan

Here are my top hits and miss of the week.

Who: Deepika Padukone
Where: At the "Karthik calling Karthik" music release

Sequins was a big Fall/Winter, 2010 trend and this yellow sequins dress highlights Deepika's best feature - her legs. I love the stacked bangles (Spring, 2010 trend) and the black belt.

Who: Kangana Ranut
Where: LV store launch

She looks very polished out here. The beige skirt, shoes, silver bustier, purse - everything is perfect!!

Who: Lara Dutta
Where: Max Stardust awards
The necklace and earrings take the look to "wow"..

Who: Malaika Arora Khan
Where: LV launch

Malaika totally rocks this mini here.

Who: Shilpa Shetty
Where: LV store launch

There is a ruffle on the right hand side which is not very clear in this picture. Love the hot pink color and the gold shoes..

Oh no, what was she thinking!!

Who: Gul Panag
Where: Max stardust awards

I think the pic says it all:-)

Stardust awards

The Stardust awards were held last week on 17th Jan, 2010 in Mumbai. No idea who won what but there were lots of winners on the red carpet. I have rated them from 1 bindi ("What was she thinking!!") to 5 bindis ("I will kill for that outfit:-)"). If you do not know what a bindi is, click here.

Preity wore a beautiful blue dress accessorized with a silver clutch. Love the dress and the color.
Ratings : 5 bindis

The color looks good on her although I didnt like the purse.
Ratings : 5 bindis

Ratings : 5 bindis

Love the way Lara accessorized the white dress with red necklace/earrings..Boho-chic!!
Ratings : 5 bindis

This is a one-shoulder dress but because of the hair, we cant see it properly. She could have taken the hem in as its too long:-) Some stacked bangles would have looked nice.
Ratings : 4 bindis

The neckline is very pretty and so is the color, although her hair looks messy.
Ratings :4

I love the blouse color and her earrings. Bangles would have looked nice.
Ratings : 5

Ratings : 3.5

The dress is good but the embroidery on her bodice looks a little tacky.
Ratings :3.5

The blouse gives it a very "item" look.
Ratings :3

The dress could have done without the feathers and a clutch in black color would have looked better.
Ratings : 2

Didnt like the dress or the hairstyle. The shoes are also bad.
Ratings : 1

The dress is way too tight and it looks like she is hiding her flab with the purse:-)
Ratings : 1

YIKES!!! I am all for pushing fashion boundaries but this?? Its very garish..
