Celeb Style Weekly: When The Fashionistas Fail
The good news is that this week we didn’t have to cover our eyes in despair at the fashion choices of our dear celebrities. However, the week was far from perfect. Two of our favourite fashionistas, Sonam Kapoor and Esha Gupta, disappointed with their outfits—but saved themselves from the turkey of the week (dis)honour. That one was reserved for poor ol’ Parineeti. So, without further ado, here’s our weekly round-up of who wore what.
1. Shilpa Shetty

Mrs Kundra looked elegant and graceful in her salmon Tarun Tahiliani sari. With her natural makeup and sleek hair complementing the outfit well, a long gold necklace finished out her look. Simply love!
2. Kangana Ranaut

Also going simple was Kangana, who wore a muted Michael Kors skirt with a plain white shirt, tan belt, brogues (which gave the outfit that stylish twist) and a Louis Vuitton tote. We’re digging the fact that the actress felt confident to go completely bare-faced and still stood out due to her gorgeous smile. Yes, Kangana, makeup is overrated!
3. Sonam Kapoor

Oh, how the mighty have fallen! Sonam attended a recent party wearing Dolce & Gabbana and paired it just as on the runway. While the outfit may have worked on the ramp, it looked severely mismatched off the runway. Adding to the woes was Ms Kapoor’s trademark statement jewellery, which in this case just made her look overdressed. Sometimes it’s okay to go simple, Sonam!
4. Hrithik Roshan

The Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai hunk has resorted to wearing fedoras of late, which we’re not complaining one bit about. We love a man who can carry off a hat well, and Hrithik has nicely paired them with some cool, casual looks. Plus, with all the rumours about his personal life floating around, it’s a smart move to keep a hat handy to avoid any unwanted attention.

She may still look like a million bucks (and dress like it, too), but what’s going on with those super-long trousers that look like they were created for a 6ft model (Deepika Padukone, anyone?) Why must you kill a perfectly classy look with such a minor mistake? Next time, ask us—we’ll be happy to share the number of our neighbourhood darji.
6. Sania Mirza & Kareena Kapoor Khan

Two gorgeous ladies, two similar styles. To our uber-pleasant surprise, both women wore their pencil skirts beautifully. Sania deserves a round of applause for her hair and makeup, while Bebo (who’s nailed that bit already) looked fabulous in those gold Saint Laurent Tribs shoes. Dressing well for your body shape, ladies!
7. Esha Gupta

Denim on denim is a trend we’re totes on board with, but this is not what we’d envisaged when we showed you how to wear it. Next time, refer to our stories, Esha!
8. Sushmita Sen

Ooh la la! Ms Sen gave us a dazzling look in her clean-cut black-and-yellow salwar kameez in Kolkata. Her loose hair and minimal makeup took it up to that next level. Here’s to more such looks from Sush!
And the turkey of the week goes to…
9. Parineeti Chopra

This poor girl just can’t catch a break, can she? Between the shiny gold corset, long skirt, dazzling gold bangles, bright lips and that maang tikka, there was just too much going on for us to process this outfit at all. Remember what mommy told you, Parineeti—when in doubt, remove one piece from your outfit.
