Aamina Sheikh at Seedlings movie premiere

It’s been almost a year when we last saw Aamina Sheikh wearing ELAN to Lamha / Seedlings movie premiere - Back then it was the movie’s world premiere, this week it was the Pakistan leg. The  lead actress was snapped wearing an oriental print dress from the Label’s ‘Ode to a Nightingale’ collection that was showcased at the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week earlier this year (Read our review of the collection here ) . A soft Chignon , black crochet clutch & red lips completed her look.

Firstly, we’re glad that Aamina is someone who always puts in an effort into her public appearances, and experiments with a wide variety of silhouettes & designers ( see earlier ones here Ayesha Hashwani , Saamia AhmedMaheen Karim , Nabila ). Secondly, it was a great pick for the event in question considering Khadijah Shah herself chose to wear this at the PSFW’2013 red carpet. Thirdly, she looked nice especially the hair & make-up ( done by Bina Shah) looked great on her.

Last time, this is how we had ranked all three looks :  1. Runway  2. Aamina  3. Khadijah . This Time we’d say : 1. Khadijah   2. Runway  3. Aamina . Would’ve given it to Aamina had the sleeve fitting been taken care of, the pumps were replaced with strappy sandals & the hem would have used a few more inches.  Do you agree ? How would you rank them ?

On a side note, who is this fabulous girl next to Khadijah in the picture above ? Ahem – Yours’ Truly in a MUSE cloudprint maxi ! :)

Sara Loren – Murder 3 promotional Tour

Sara Loren Who ? It’s alright if you’re thinking ‘ Hell No ! That’s Mona Lizza’. Well, apparently that’s her new name and we could’nt be bothered any further. Anyway, Sara Loren who is on a promotional tour for her upcoming movie Murder 3 these days has been snapped at various occasions in some rather blah outfit choices. For the Movie’s first look in Mumbai, she opted for a polka dot pussy bow blouse with black minis, a leather belt & peep-toes. It was cobalt blue body-con ( Leger?) at another event & a layered black lace dress at the press conference in Mumbai.

Dont think we need to ask now which one she fared worse – or do we?

Of monochrome & pop of color – Kareena Kapoor promotes Heroine

Recent promotional rounds for ‘Heroine’ had Kareena Kapoor put in appearances in separates & short dresses in monochrome and/or bright colors. While we loved the dash of coral by way of the Rachel Roy skirt in look no. 2 , the green shirt dress (look no.1) & the black & white floral patch jacket (Buy here) by Rajesh Pratap looked stunning. Loved the top-knot in look no. 4.

P.S. See all of Bebo’s previous looks from Heroine promotional tour herehere.

Fashion Round-Up Kareena Kapoor’s promotional tour for Heroine – Part 2

It is pure delight to see Kareena Kapoor evolve as Bollywood’s leading fashion & style icon as Heroine promotional tour gains momentum ; something which has been lacking on her part in the past. With a line up of outfits completely different from each other by way of cuts, colors & prints, it was surprising to see Bebo pull off each one almost perfectly. Two thumbs up for her stylist Tanya Ghavri.

Here’s your look at some of Kareena Kapoor ‘s best fashion moments from her promotional tour. (see the earlier ones here). We can’t take our eyes off her in looks 1, 4 & 7. What about you?

P.S. She’s wearing BCBG Viviane Beaded Blue Dress on the sets of Comedy Circus (look number 2) & Mara Hoffman in for the Dubai leg of promotions.

Kareena Kapoor in Halston Heritage

After a fair share of short hemlines & eastern silhouettes , it was a flirty pink & black Halston Heritage maxi for Kareena at Dubai promotions of  ’Heroine’. We loved the pop of color on Bebo after a long time .The black sandals & Aquamarine earrings added finishing details to the look. Lovely !

P.S. Also spotted on Sophia Bush earlier this year -see here. We certainly liked Kareena’s version more, that is minus the belt !

Fashion Round-up : Kareena Kapoor for ‘Heroine’ promotions

While Kareena Kapoor is busy promoting her forthcoming film ‘Heroine’ these days, we keeping a keen  eye on her outfit choices for each of her appearances. From fashion’s point of view the film looks quite promising, and so does the promotional tour – So far so good . Here’s a fashion round-up of Bebo’s promotional tour so far:-

1. In Dolce & Gabbana : The floral shift dress looked absolutely lovely on Kareena  and compared to other appearances this was one of our personal favorites – very chic yet classy.

2.  In Falguni & Shane Peacock  & nude Loubs We certainly appreciate Kareena for opting for longer hemlines as of late & she wore the dress almost perfectly with a sleek ponytail & nude Christian Louboutin pumps. Although we re still unsure if it could have turned out better minus the the necklace. She was styled by Tanya Ghavri.

3.  In Osman YousefzadaWearing one of the outfits from the designer’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection (buy here) , Bebo stepped out today for another promotional event . The necklace brought the an otherwise great look down & should have been omitted altogether. Loved the hairdo. She was styled by Tanya Ghavri again.

4. In Manish Malhotra Anarkali For the music launch at the Siddhivinayak temple, Kareena was spotted in a a lime yellow Anarkali dress by her long time friend & favorite designer, Manish Malhotra. The color works wonders on Kareena’s skin tone & we couldnt help but drool over her.

5. In Manish Malhotra (again) The Indian Idol appearance of Bebo saw her in the same colors & the same designer as at the music launch. Betwen the Anarkali & the Sari , its hard to pick a favorite but for us the Anarkali wins by just a little margin since the sari was a Manish Malhotra clich’e.

6. In Pernia Qureshi Wearing Pernia Qureshi from the Pernia’s PopUp Shop , Bebo looked fun & playful in the double collar pleated dress (buy here).  As much as we loved the dress on her, the black pumps were a killjoy ; it would have been so much better had she opted for Tan pumps or peep-toes instead. Tanya Ghavri again.
