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.

 

Best Dressed at Vogue India Beauty Awards 2012

 1. Deepika Padukone in Dolce & Gabbana

Deepika attended the Vogue India Beauty Awards in full Glamourama mode wearing a shimmery gold & black Dolce & Gabbana dress. Big voluminous hair & gold cuffs completed her look. Veronica much, eh ? We see Deepika wear alot of golds as of late (See her look in Cocktail’s song ‘Main Sharabi’ & at Karan Johar’s birthday bash), and boy does she nail the look every single time. Loved it head-to-toe.

 2. Dia Mirza

Why O Why didnt Dia get this haircut before? Its almost transformed her into a whole new person. Though the dress and shoes were not so inspirational, however, Dia completely owned the look keeping it simple & chic, & letting the new hair do most of the talking.

3. Kajol in Ayesha Depala

Gone are the days when Kajol used to show up at the awards wearing just anything from her closet & a no-make-up,no hair-do look. Kajol has come a far far way into pulling her act together & giving us the yester years beauty queen back. She looked quite elegant in the nude Ayesha Depala gown & the hair & make-up complemented the look perfectly.

4. Nargis Fakhri in Roberto Cavalli

When we first saw Ms. Fakhri in this Cavalli tiered dress, we were on the fence about it . But lets just accept it, the more we see it the more it grows on us – thanks to the styling – very edgy & very comfortable , especially the centre parted hair . Oh and good clutch choice there.

5. Sonali Bindre in Christian Dior

Should we say this appearance of Sonali’s marks her ‘comeback’ ? It called for a refreshing change to see her work that body hugging embellished Christian Dior dress with a feminine messy updo & just the perfect make-up & accessories. Here s hoping we keep seeing more of the ‘new Sonali’ in future .

Karan Johar’s Birthday Party (Part 4) – AWA’s Worst Dressed List

Apologies for sounding like Simon Cowell , but we could’nt  help compiling a list of celebrities who stepped out looking plain Bad. We wont get into much details and let the pictures do most of the talking.

1. Priyanka Chopra in Dolce & Gabbana

Of all the people who made it to this list, Priyanka was least expected. Cant even believe its a D&G. The only thing that worked were the hair.

2. Genelia D’Souza in Jatin Varma

Despite the fact that neck up Genelia looks cute (thanks to the new hair)  , the dress was too much of a hotch-potch for us to approve. The black strappy heels were also a poor choice of footwear .

3. Rani Mukherjee

Rani looks gorgeous when she sticks to her signature style saris/dresses. But the white satin dress was just not the right pick for the event,especially because of the ill fitting . For some odd reason it gives maternity-dress vibes.

 4. Parineeti Chopra in Shantanu & Nikhil

We have seen the upcoming star in some really impressive appearances as of late. However, this one was a disappointment . We werent fans of the dress itself and the red lips made for an odd combination.

5. Raveena Tandon

What went wrong about Raveena’s dress was that it was too 1990′s. Think Raveena needs to re-vamp her wardrobe.

6. Shamita Shetty

Shamita’s cowl neck fuchia dress was too cliche’d to leave a mark . The chunnky black shoes and clutch also brought the whole look down.

7. Urmilla Matondkar in Manish Malhotra

Though neck up Urmilla looked nice, but the fit of the dress just was’nt in place.

8. Ekta Kapoor

Oh Ekta ! it wasnt a fancy dress show. Too much skin, thick casual shoes and an orange arm band wrapped around the wrist – what else could possibly go wrong.

Karan Johar’s Birthday Party – AWA’s Best Dressed List

Of all the celebrities who attended Karan Johar’s 40th Birthday Party on 25th May in Mumbai , surprisingly , there were only a handful who made it to our best dressed list & fewer still who blew us away ; many A-Listers trickled down to the worst-dressed category and some failed to make an impression despite putting in an effort.
This time AWA decided to do something different for you guys and so we clubbed the appearances into different categories (this post being the first). Read on and take note of who wore what.

Disclaimer : The results might be shocking. Read at your own risk :P

1. Kangna Ranaut in Burberry

So when we said ‘fewer still who blew us away‘ Kangna was one of them. Intelligent choice of color . Loved the sassy hair against the victorian look. Make-up & accessories spot on ! For the finishing touches , just the right attitude *pout*

2. Deepika Padukone in Prabal Gurung

We re so in love with the gold Parabal Gurung gown , that despite not having a full length picture of Deepika , we are ready to crown her as the best dressed at the party (we re trying to put together Deepika with the complete picture of Jennifer Lawrence who wore the same dress earlier this year) . From what we see, waist up , Deepika has blown us away !

3. Malaika Arora Khan in Roberto Cavalli

Though Malaika wore this Cavalli jersey gown for the second time (first time in Dec’2011 at the High Life Dubai interview – see below ) , we think she looked as lovely as she did back then. Change of hair & accesories and she was ready to rock the red carpet.

4. Karishma Kapoor in Herve Leger

With Lolo in perfect shape, donning a black patent Leger, our long lost love for the label has come to life again (thanks to the gazillion Leger appearances by Bollywood actresses). A Bottega Veneta clutch & Black Louboutin pumps were perfect to add to the drama. *love*

5. Suzanne Roshan in Dolce & Gabbana

F.i.n.a.l.l.y Suzanne decides to change her hair – and BOY did it work wonders for her – perfectly complementing the Leopard Print D&G gown. Suzanne looked like ‘The’ celebrity wife and we aint complaining about anything in this look.

6. Bipasha Basu in Arpan Vohra

Though this black tiered Arpan Vohra gown was simple & drama-free , it looked gorgeous on Bips (especially the sexy back ;) ) . Side swept hair, and a sparkly Gucci clutch completed her look. Of all the ladies who chose to wear black for the evening , this was our favorite.

Twitterati – Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor , the ‘it’ celeb of Twitterati , recently (and by recently we mean a few minutes – no kidding) tweeted a picture of hers from the L’oreal Paris India Headquarters. Wearing the new loreal lipstick called ‘sparkling amethyst’, Sonam talked about L’or Electric, the new range of make up she ll be wearing at the upcoming Cannes Festival 2012 !

For the event, she chose a brown Carven shirt , black jacket by The Row, cobalt blue pants by Sandro and Dolce & Gabbana pumps….. We loved the look HEAD-TO-TOE . See our anatomy of the appearance as we go ‘Inside’ her wardrobe >:)
