well THIS is interesting.
looks like whoever designed malaika arora khan’s black gown for the ‘jhalak dikhlaja’ finale was *quite* inspired by the mcqueen gown sjp wore the the london premiere of satc 2.
the cross-over two-toned neck-line, the nude area with black embroidery, the pleating on the bodice, the satin material of the skirt…purely coincidential?
i think not.
whoever the designer is was obviously not adventurous enough to emulate the shape of the skirt, or perhaps that would have been too much of a blatant imitation. and of course the dress on malaika generally looks cheap and badly tailored.
i ain’t preachin the high road here. i copy high-end designers all the time when i am creating my own outfits. you just do not expect PROFESSIONAL designers to do the same. it is a bit idiotic.
who advised you to pair those jewels with that dress? please shoot them in the face.
