Who’s Got The Look

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The past few weeks have seen many celebs flaunt their style sense – or the lack of it


Aishwariya Rai Bachchan
Fashion.Indian Link
Wearing a Michael Cinco gown, Aishwarya swept the Cannes red carpet in powder blue. The light hue in a voluminous silhouette reminds us of Cinderella. Is it a bad reminiscence? Not at all! The hair and make-up all fell in place. She was a delight to watch.
Sonam Kapoor
Fashion.Indian Link
It was an Elie Saab gown for Sonam Kapoor at a Cannes appearance this year. The blush pink with a hint of diamantes was very flattering on Sonam’s skin tone. We’re usually not in favour of belts on gown, but this one framed Sonam’s hourglass figure just right.
Deepika Padukone
Fashion.Indian Link
It was a very sharp and fiery-looking Deepika in a Brandon Maxwell gown. The styling gave the Grecian gown an edgy twist. Dramatic eyes and Chloe Gosselin velvet sandals added to the drama. Not sure if the green out-swept eye-shadow will be a trend-setter though.
Aishwariya Rai Bachchan
Fashion.Indian Link
Aishwarya deserves to be on the ‘Got It’ list for the second time thanks to her radiant smile and that red Ralph & Russo gown! A tiered ruffle gown can look a bit gimmicky or kiddish, but not this one. The fitted bodice worked well with the flared out number.
Shruti Hassan
Fashion.Indian Link
The only actress to bring in the Indian attire in all its glory at Cannes this year was Shruti Hassan wearing an AM:PM label. The serenity of white with minimalist styling and accessories came across as a breath of fresh air.


Shraddha Kapoor 
Fashion.Indian Link
Sporting a Shift label beige and pink dress, Shraddha looked lovely neck up. Further down, the patchwork pockets, the length and the random appearance of a double tone on the bottom makes the look all too confused and incoherent.
Shriya Saran 
Fashion.Indian Link
First, the silk sari isn’t anything to write home about. To add to it, the brocade blouse did nothing to elevate either the garment or Shriya’s look. One of those rare times when a matchy-matchy route (here the blouse and sari) would have worked better. Hair could have been tied back in a low bun.
Richa Chaddha 
Fashion.Indian Link
Is it tomato ketchup or table cloth that Richa has decided to sport? Whatever it is, we are heartbroken to see such a talented actress make a huge fashion blunder. The dress does nothing for the actress; if anything the top makes her look frumpy and disproportionate.
Urvashi Rautela 
Fashion.Indian Link
Urvashi was at Justin Bieber’s Mumbai concert but looked like she was at prom night or a cocktail event. A music concert calls for a more cool, dressed down vibe. If she swapped the white dinner jacket for a boho knit or a cape, the look would have screamed ‘cool’.
Aishwariya Rai Bachchan
Fashion.Indian Link
After scoring top marks at her other Cannes appearances, Aishwarya’s Yanina Couture gown slid her down on the fashion scale. The colour is lovely but the two-tiered gown looks frumpy, a stark comparison to the multi-tiered gown above. Ruffled tiers are great only if they appear in numbers and are shorter in size!
