2013 brought with it new fashion
trends, be it neon colors, denim on denim, crop tops, trench coats or
tube skirts, B-Town saw it all. Most Tinsel Town celebs hit the
bullseye, but some went terribly wrong. BollyCurry gives you the
low-down on the worst dressed celebs this year.
Mukherjee and the color silver make a bad combination, if Karan Johar's
2012 birthday bash is anything to go by. But this time, Rani broke
another fashion rule as she wore a modified version of Donna Karan's
original dress at the GQ Men of the Year awards. Adding to the look was a
golden clutch, which was actually rather eye-catching on its own, but
combined with the dress, she broke the cardinal gold-silver rule and
resulted in looking like a Christmas tree.
Lesson 1 - Light foundation maketh a ghost.
Lesson 2 - Short clothes don't always equal hot!
went overboard trying to sell her sexy kitten look in 2013 and failed
miserably at it. The first chance to witness her failure was at Farah
Khan's birthday party where she wore a Herve Leger bandage cutout dress
that ended mid-thighs. While we like the pairing of hot pink heels, the
look in itself just was too much leg. Second came the Gothic avatar at
the curtain raiser of her first production, Desi Magic. We have
no idea what is happening here besides the fact that it is all kinds of
wrongness in one package. Time to relearn the lessons, Miss. Patel.
are nearly all good actors bad dressers? At the IIFA Rocks event,
Parineeti was seen in a Falguni and Shane Peacock dress that ended above
her thighs. It's a nice step out from her comfort zone but we're not
impressed. Wearing her hair down with a band to keep the bangs out of
the way was the wrong choice. A sleek ponytail would have served the
dress better. Those black pumps were also a major letdown. And can the
teapot pose please be a thing of the past!
Mrs Kapoor's love affair with the box office ended with Ghanchakkar. The affair with bad dressing, however, is for keeps. We're ready to pass off the gaudiness during the Ghanchakkar promotions
as being "in character" but nothing can explain the out of place
grandeur at Cannes 2013. Amongst her various outfits, the one that stood
out from the crowd for all the wrong reasons is the the Sabyasachi saree she wore at the screening of Young and Beautiful. The nath was too big and the bun too slick. Definitely not the standard of Cannes.
an Egyptian mummy to Mandrake the Magician, Sonakshi Sinha gave us a
lot of variety this year. Sadly it was all off-screen and none
too appreciative. Despite being a stunning gown, the Falguni and Shane
Peacock creation was definitely not for Sonakshi. The mish-mash of
electric colors in the Abu Sandeep saree is what really got our goat though. She can add these to the ever-growing list of 'what NOT to wear'.
Mrs Bachchan's Cannes hairdo was a pet peeve of ours. Of all the different sightings, the hairdo that accompanied the teal Gucci Premiere gown at the the premier of Cleopatra, is what made say "seriously?". The satin rich dress with those lush pink lips we pass off with reluctance. But
the updo, which literally sat like a bowl on top of her head, was just
plain weird. We'd have preferred this look more if the bun was softer
Ranveer Singh is the modern day Govinda. From the dhinchak dance steps in his latest hit Ram-Leela, to the busy and colorful shirts he wore while promoting it, everything was a match. At the Hello! Hall of Fame
awards, Ranveer attended branded in Vuitton - a striped suit with a
paisley shirt. It's fun and keeps us guessing his next appearance but
oh, how we wish he followed the "keep it simple" formula sometimes.
Stella McCartney is one name you must have in your wardrobe but even that couldn't save Sridevi from make-up mishaps. At the launch of Koecsh, her
badly concealed face had us horrified. But that wasn't the sole
issue. The heels that she paired with the striped outfit along with that
boring clutch were, well, boring! The mismatched accessories and
footwear are becoming more frequent in her recent looks and we're
We are all for quirkiness but Aamir's pop coloured collection of jeans is so last year. It all started at the Satyamev Jayate press
meets in 2012 when colored denims were the latest fad. Aamir, however,
refuses to go back to the basic blue till he's completed the 'perfect'
rainbow. To demonstrate the point, seen at two different events, Aamir
paired his coloured jeans with a too-short tee and also with a plain white kurta. We won't go into specifics but that hat and shoes need to go. Pronto.
it's a Malini Ramani, it's in Ekta Kapoor's wardrobe. We've seen her
wear the same black wedges and hair with the same dress in different
colors and at different events. Why does she insist on wearing this look
to death? Someone needs to get her to read what William Cowper says
about variety being the spice of life.
new year around the corner and the world preparing that dreaded
resolution list, we hope the above celebs' New Year resolution includes
keeping it stylish always. While we wait to see if they pick up a tip or
two, here's wishing the readers a happy and fashion-filled New Year!
