When I wrote about 2.5 Kilo arms of Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan many trashed me for being mean and talking about body parts of the Bollywood divas. I can live with it but the thumb rule of fashion is that one should wear an ensemble that compliments their body and not wear something just because it is in fashion. Blindly succumbing to a fad is not being fashionable. It’s being a sad fashion victim!
A big-buck couture gown by a famous couturier neither does justice to the lady wearing it nor benefits the designer if the ensemble does not compliment the diva’s look. There is no doubt that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is beautiful, gorgeous and classy. Nothing can take that away from her. But when she wears a body-hugging tiered gown by Oscar de la Renta that pushes out her fleshy bits around the under-arms, it is definitely not fashionable. (I have posted a picture by Getty Images so that you don’t accuse me of photoshopping!)
Fashion should not be followed blindly. Make your own fashion statement rather than succumbing to the aura of big-ticket couture labels. I liked what Richa Chadha wore – the powder pink Gauri and Nainika ensemble. Keep it simple ladies!
