Celeb Style Weekly: Bare Is Everywhere
The ‘herd mentality’ syndrome of our dear ol’ Bollywood never ceases to amaze us. Ever since Kangana Ranaut dared to go bare (on her face, dearies), everyone seems to have caught on to that fever. And while some managed to pull it off (they probably referred to our story), others had us scrambling to cover our eyes. Makeup is there for a reason, people! Use it! Here’s our weekly round-up of what our celebs are upto.
1. Tamannaah Bhatia

We’ve been seeing a lot of this pretty actress lately as she promotes her new film with co-star Akshay Kumar and most times she hasn’t disappointed—this appearance included. Tamannah looks lovely without a shred of makeup on and the printed green Turquoise & Gold shirt dress played off beautifully with her radiant skin tone. This is fresh face done well!
2. Sridevi & Gauri Khan

Mrs Khan and Sri were recently spotted leaving a party sans makeup, but we can’t say they fared very well. With just a berry shade to highlight her lips, we couldn’t help thinking that Sridevi’s pretty Maison Martin Margiela blouse needed some more slap to stand out. As for Gauri, those strange-length, ripped jeans and tack white top have just completed the disaster that is this look. Collective groan!
3. Kareena Kapoor Khan

This one came as a surprise to us, too! The usually immaculate Bebo looks completely washed out in her ‘fresh-faced’ avatar. Combine those scary dark circles with KJo’s matching pout and we get a constipated look that even Hajmola can’t take care of.
4. Rhea Chakraborty & Vaani Kapoor

We know what you’re thinking—enough of the bare faces already. We hear ya! But that doesn’t mean what’s coming next is pretty. Rhea’s bralet and skirt outfit was in desperate need of a dupatta (next time, just borrow it from us, sweety) while Vaani’s dangerously-low ‘nightie’ dress (we can’t believe Nikhil Thampi is responsible for this) had us scrambling to get her some double-sided tape. Ah ladies, why do you trouble us so?!
5. Raveena Tandon

Not usually known for keeping it classy, we were very pleasantly surprised to see Raveena looking gorgeous in this eye-catching anarkali worn with a large bindi and flawless makeup. Simply love!
6. Rani Mukerji

Oh my God! Rani is definitely giving the BTM (that’s behenji-turned-mod for all you uninitiated souls out there) vibe in this strange combination of ill-fitting pants, grey top and blazer, and THAT shade of lipstick. What makes the look even more dowdy is the tightly worn hair. This poor lady is SO in need of a style intervention.
7. Kiran Rao

How does Mrs Khan end up looking so casual yet effortlessly stylish at the same time?! We’re absolutely digging that tie-dye skirt paired with the checked scarf and Converse shoes. #win
And the turkey of the week goes to…
8. Aaran Chaudhary

We wouldn’t blame you if you went ‘who’ (that was our reaction on hearing his name, too), but that was before we did a double take on what he was wearing to a film launch. We wonder which CIA surveillance mission this man is undertaking with those combat boots, camouflage pants, dark sunglasses and black beret.
