What is Fashion? To some, Fashion is an art form; to others, it is almost a religion. But for most people, it is a way of utilizing clothing, accessories and such articles to enhance or hide one's features. One can use fashion to express yourself or to serve as an extension of your personality. Now how you want to present yourself depends on your choice of clothes. Fashion becomes all the more important if you are part of the entertainment industry. The television industry has some women who can make heads turn while some cause one to think, 'did she not look into a mirror before stepping out of the house?' Let's take a look at some of the well-known ladies of the small screen and see which categories they fall in.
Top 5 Fashion Faux
Although they look stunning and have captured one too many hearts, they still have their share of fashion faux pas moments.
Divyanka Tripathi: She is undoubtedly the most prettiest and innocent looking face in the television industry and looks stunning in a saree. But, when in western attire, Divyanka fails miserably! A classic example of this is the evening gown she wore at the Gold Awards held last year. In fact, the unflattering frocks she was dressed in, post her re-birth in Banoo Main Teri Dulhan, never did do justice to this pretty lass.
Barkha Bisht: A lady with a figure to die for, but somehow, she seems to be besotted with her legs. The kind of clothes worn by her for parties give you an impression that it must be truly difficult for her to sit, stand, dance or for that matter even breathe in them. Barkha also loves to recycle her clothes and accessories, be it her belts, purses or her trademark white boots. She features in practically every party ,so our advice to this belle would be, an overdose of anything is not advisable, so go shopping gal!!!
Juhi Parmar: Another pretty face in the multitude of talented actors who is set out to accomplish the impossible, prove that 'I can carry off western attire amazingly well'. But, to her and everyone else's dismay, she fails miserably time and again, be it her outfits in Star PLus' Antakshari or in Comedy Circus. She has lost oodles of weight in the last couple of months and looks gorgeous. However, we pray that she does some serious work on her clothes too, or she end up looking like a mythological character in some of them.
Shilpa Saklani: An actor who has it all, right from stunning looks to an amazing figure to her sparkling skin. Yet she features in this category. And she owes it all to her loud make-up and trademark white three quarters teamed with a pink tee that has her topping the charts for the most outrageously dressed actor in the industry, taking away all the charm she can exude. Our only word of advice, reduce the makeup and add a dollop of attitude.
Ekta Kapoor: Talk about television's badly dressed women and leave the Czarina out of it! Now, that wouldn't be fair, would it? Ekta is a prime example of what one should not wear when they are on the heavier side. We all know black is beautiful, but wearing it for every occasion just to hide a protruding bulge was never a fashion statement. Not to forget her added accessories consisting of a humongous sized purse, cushions or bolsters. And a question that always goes unanswered is why is Ekta so partial towards 'ghagras' for every event or party!
