kareena kapoor is popularly known as a diva in bollywood, i guess she does walk around with a certain air of bitchiness about her – i ain’t gonna lie, that’s precisely why i love her.
in the style department, kareena’s outfits are rarely anything to write home about. but she always manages to look good. i guess when your skin is all bright and dewy you can pull off just about anything.
at the premieres for her movie ra.one (possibly the most talked about film this century) kareena looked good, but failed to dazzle. have a look.
:: dubai ::
kareena chose a manish malhotra sari for her big premiere in dubai. does anyone else feel like they have seen her in this look a million times? a sheer, heavily embellished, strappy sari? yes of course. kareena’s bright pink sari has a navy blue border with gold embellishment. a teeny velvet navy blue blouse finishes the ensemble. unfortunately i couldn’t find a full-length photo so we really don’t know what was going on in the lower region.
she does look beautiful but i was hoping she would pick something and knock it out of the ballpark. this seems like something she’s worn to many many events. this was her big moment to shine.
:: london ::
for the london premiere, kareena did a complete 180.
this seems like the first time i am seeing kareena in a gown for a red carpet event. the bollywood star shimmered in a strapless sequined column gown by dolce and gabbana. the gown has an embellished black belt at the waist which was probably meant to give it an extra kick, but ended up looking borderline tacky. this dress is va va va voom, but kareena is not living up to its amazingness. it might be the angle, but girl looks like she’s got the shoulders and arms of a linebacker. the dress is a bad fit at the chest, the shape is all weird and is making her look much wider than she is.
kareena has been accused of stepping out on more than one occasion with raccoon eyes, but here she opted for lighter makeup. her skin is glowing, as is the rest her face. but i do feel that this dress is one that warranted a sexier, smokier eye for a more glamorous touch.
oh and those earrings!!! i am lusting after those gorgeous diamond and ruby (?) teardrop earrings. so so gorgeous.
also the ponytail ages her.
all in all, i would have loved to see a star of her stature really bring down the house by choosing something totally insane (like this) and making sure everyone remembered her. while the dress is gorgeous, it looks like something we have seen before and will probably see again. i’m kinda feeling let down. this is kinda upsetting.
and here’s an extra pic for all you srk fans, ignore his uber tanned makeup
