Turns out Ash was wearing a Cavalli indeed. After seeing the short version, the length increase does seem like an afterthought! (Like a lot of you mentioned!) ;)
Thanks ‘claire’ for the tip-off!

Aargh. How can someone go so wrong with such a hot color! The length of this gown is so wrong (and I hope it is just this pic) but I can’t believe I am seeing a hemline! Tsk Tsk.
Me no like. You?

the shape of the dress is not flattering at all…
OMG I can see the inner babydoll…tsk tsk
whats in the middle?? thigh area? :S this is baddd.. although she looks pretty!
jezus … she killed it … Im just watching it on TV ,…
media here in germany is going GA GA over her beauty ..
it’s funny here .. they are referring her as the angelina jolie of INDIA …
its pink panther … i think thts why she choose PINK … :d :d
She looks a bit puffy. Like the makeup. The dress is not fit for someone of her calibre and status. She can do better. But the color is nice.
hemline!!!!…. Biiig NO NO….
Dont like the dress at all…
But she kinda look pretty here.. I liked her makeup and the color really suits her
Ummmmmmmm……kinnda weird. The color is lovely though
its a beautiful color and it looks smashing on her! Her makeup is gorgeous and the face looks STUNNING. But whats up with the cut of the dress? C’mon!!! Am I seeing inner wear through the dress? why does something have to be wrong in what could have been a perfect look? SIGH….
OK.. she is a joke! a pretty joke.
why is everyone reffered to and want to be ” the angelina jolie of..” you’d think she’s the biggest star ever or something!!?? even beauty wise there have been and is others better than her.
Jessica alba, salma hayek etc.
ok she looks like she is gonna fall outta that dress. And it looks like a jazzy nightgown.
What a weird dress!! Face looks so stunning, but below that is a lot of nonsense. Who the hell designed this dress, how could they do this to hot pink?
That embroidery in the middle looks like a heart. Maybe she’s all dressed up in pink and hearts for V-Day?
Love the hair and makeup but the innerwear showing through and the weird length are very distracting.
the color totally works…top half f hers luks perfect… the color is totally rockin on her.. de gown itself Sux biiig tym …. Wish it was in a different cut or shape !!!
ronan exactly it’s not the inner wear I mean wth, she’s not insane? It’s actually a secod frill as you spotted correctly…
I WAS AT THE PREMIERE! And it was great, I must say I was never a Aish fan, but I must say I really like her now, she looked lovely, the gown looked very nice in real life, all in all very good!
It is soooooo freazing cold here in Berlin, I don’t know how she managed to walk around there for 10min or so in that dress….
@ Suzie: Ditto!
what is that thing in the middle, in the first pic it looked like a shadow of underwear lol, and she is so PREGNANT
i was surprised to how she cold wear a gown like that in this freezing cold .. i came out to fill my car tank .. it was freezing for the two minutes ..
even in newyork dad told me it was cold too .. remember the FERRITE gown she wore at the newyork premiere …
i dont get how could these women wear these gown in the freezing cold … ??????
so who is the dress by… kinda curious.. the in between frill lor whatever in the middle that looks her slip is showing ..ooks funny/weird … and cleavage is literally OTT.. somehow the fit there seems odd..
I’m telling you, there’s no excuse for this travesty except that they had to hunt for a loose baggy dress at the last minute – however gaudy and tacky – that hides the baby bump.
Did they shorten the dress at the last minute. the seams look very badly done. And how is the dress staying up, I wonder. two sided tape must be..
she’s got to be pregnant. nothing else explain the odd choice of clothing. but she is glowing.
This is my first time posting on HHH but this really compelled a response… WTH is she thinking wearing that thing?! It looks like a really bad nightie- shapeless and just ugly! Aish was never been known for her fashion sense but this really takes the cake… I can’t stop laughing.. how can such a beautiful woman look so bad?!
nice colour ….
but why her mouth is always wide open while laughing ….. i wonder :) ??
She needs to hire Freida’s stylist!
her gown is looking like the brown one Angelina Jolie wore in cannes when she was pregs….
OMG she needs to be on Whheyyy the list
This is definitely a dress made by her favorite indian designer .. whats her name Neeta Lulla? Reminds me of her first appearance at Cannes
if that doesnt scream MATERNITY, i don’t know what will! and why o why is the innerwear on display? :(
she really has a most exquisitely beautiful face. abhishek is a lucky guy. the colour is lovely too. i agree that the dress is very strange but i’ve seen people wear worse things.
Aish looks awesome, the pink looks fab fab fab on her!!
If its not a hemline, as Dilara and ronan puts it,.. then I quite like how she looks. love the color the makeup.
and yes, pink looks very good on her
this hairstyle/color does suit her tho…and i think she got those side swept bangs to cover up her over arched left eyebrow
I don’t like this AT ALLLLLLL!! In fact, I’m quite annoyed with Ash and her wardrobe choices lately. This woman gets more attention than any Indian actress out there and she, somehow, mostly goes over the top in regards to her outfits. If a designer chooses them for her, then does she not have ANY say about what they’re picking out for her?!? Ugh! Annoying. I realize this might sound like a over-reaction but I’ve been her fan ever since her modeling days (and later she converted me to liking her as an ACTRESS as well– well, post Raincoat).
When will she understand that ON HER minimal and natural = best?
sorry for hyperventilating.
she looks gorgeous..
yea but she still looks so stunning. and i like the top of the dress and the color. the hem line is really silly and i dont understand why its there.. but over all… i think she looks gorge!
that pink’s reflecting against her skin and making her glow. she looks stunning but that’s a BAD gown:-) i like her earrings.. i prefer this cleavage over the black dress cleavage in NY…
I know one thing that overall she looks absolutely stunning! Here I am not talking about just her *face* but just the overall appearance! She is shining here..in a good way! I was little confused about the frill thing but when a commenter said that she saw her in person and this was a frill..besides I like the free flowing shape of the dress as well..she rocks!
She looks stunning here. except for the hemlinenothing at all wrong here. phew wat a relief. and i agree she looks prettier than angelina jolie.
Aish is just so gorgeous and stunning, it never matters what she wears, she could wear a gunny sack and roll out of bed and still look dropdead stunning!
I think she looks gorgeous!!! And funnily enough, I like the dress too – I don’t see where the weight criticism is coming from.
OMG EWWW!!! This dress is so unflattering! This girl doesn’t have any curves and she should be wearing something that gives her that! This looks like a maternity dress. Good color but seriously, why can’t she ever get it right?!!
this looks like a valentine special/gift(of course for AB baby) to me! [ink and heart – what else can you ask for?!whats with the stitching in the middle – a big ewwwww!
From the bust up she looks great. I really like the detailing on the chest area. But wtf at the rest of it? That random frill in the middle, the weird length, ARGHHHHHHHHH. SHE CAN DO SO MUCH BETTER.
oh maaaan…for the first time i think her hair and makeup and the choice of colour are amazing
but the dress is soooo awful
why why whyyyyy
such a stunning colour
I think she definitely got the makeup right… and Pink looks VERY good on her. Her skin is looking gorgeous. I zoomed in on teh photos at 400% and still cant make out that its a frill. From the front, I must say, it does look like the hemline of a babydoll to me. but I just saw a pic of the back and it does look like its part of the dress. What a silly design idea to cut the gorgeous length of the dress in half!
And then there’s that hemline…there is just no excuse for that sad story. I think Ash has very bad luck when it comes to clothing.
Other than that she looks like a milliion bucks!!!
Maybe it was originally a short dress and they just added more cloth at the bottom to make it long for her?
goshhh aishwarya is just soooo pretty! totally lovin the color on her. the makeup and hair are just right. dress shape is a bit weird but i can ignore that cuz she just looks so beautiful
ASH IS PREGGY.. THATS FOR SURE…!!
is this woman pregnant, i thought the makeup with that suit was bad and hence her face looks so filled in, but even here she looks sort of fat around the face, a very preggers look, good for her if she is though
She is not Pregnant. I just saw her in a tight tube dress in Tyra show. She looked horrible with the black tights and boots (kinda like “Pretty woman” in her job , you know what I mean )
Also, Tyra kept calling a girl Huja instead of Puja.
Aishwarya looks stunning although I don’t like the dress. She is glowing and her skin looks amazing closeup.
She should wear bright colors more often.
Hideous dress as usual from Ash. This woman has no taste, style, class, or talent. Lucky for her she has a pretty face. Looks can take you very far as we can see.
That is one of the ugliest gowns I have ever seen. Off-shoulder gowns do not suit Aish at all, and she doesn’t help matters by standing like a wrestler.
She looks pregnant, loose fitting flow of the dress kind of makes it obvious. Also she has the glow and blottedness. Or if I am wrong, it might be the PMS time for her.
Oh BTW she does look beautiful, gotta give that credit and this pink suits her.
I agree with Mariam, I think it was orginally a short dress (or babydoll nightgown!) made longer by adding more fabric. And dyeing fabric to match is easy enough in India. I can’t see another reason for having a weird seam in the middle of the dress.
hate the dress, love the hair, nothing new about the makeup, & though she does look beautiful the dress is nothing gorgeous.
I think she looks superb! (and I usually can’t stand her lol) I just wish she wouldn’t desperately heap on cleavage in all her western appearances! ok ok so it’s her cleavage and she can do with it what she wants but…i dunno, i just wish she hadn’t.
I love the color and style of the dress but it totally doesn’t make sense why would there be a seam in the middle. How could she in her right mind wear a dress altered to make it longer. There are so many pretty designer dresses that she could have got in her sze. This is a major letdown.
she so frgn beautiful. its not fair:(
i dont mind the dress. except the middle part. waist up..its not bad waist down its a disaster!
SHE LOOKS STUNNING..neck up!
her hair, her makeup, her face.. looks so gorgeous.. but thats about it!
the dress looks like a night gown..
that frill sure looks weird.. but i dont mind this gown.. its very desi in its appeal
I agree that the pink suits her very much (even baby pink!) and she looks like a feast for the eye for sure. As for that hemline showing, I have been thinking about it. It is quite possible that it was intentional, perhaps to give a lilttle flirty look, but obvipusly it didn’t really have the desired effect as we can see from our reactions here. It does seem odd. I am just ignoring it now. :)
it looks like she’s wearing a blingy mumu…
She looks HOT!
What i really would like to know is,WHO IS HER STYLIST??..Or,does she style herself? How does she manage to get it wrong repeatedly in one aspect or other?? She has such wonderful physical attributes and she always seems to do everything she can to make herself look bad!…when a frieda pinto can look so smashing in every appearance why cant aishwarya rai?
The dress, if made well, would have looked GORGEOUS and added to her lovely hair and make-up… but here’s what I think, the dress started off as a short version, she wanted to wear it, but wanted to wear it long… so the extra fabric was sewn on, with a ruffle added so it wouldnt look like a plain old seam… and, as this was probably done last mintue, the hem was tucked in on her and stitched into place… oh GOD! … for God’s sake, get another gown already! … The colour and embroidery is lovely though… any idea who’s gown this is?
I see some baby fat on her.. she is so pregnent. The color is FAB, her face is Gorgeous written allover.. but the rest we shall pass !!
if the that Color Pink could ever speak.. it would CRY !!
the color is fantabulous on her skin
she looks gorgeous as always.. i mean can a woman look this perfect?
but she needs to tone down
CHUNKY comes to my mind when i see her… she looks inflated (literally!)
or maybe she is pregnant.. that wud explain the glow
SHE LOOKS PREGNANT!!!!
aaahhh!!! what an awful outfit!!!! Ash has gone back to being herself!!…reminds me of her cannes wardrobe disaster in early 2000…too much clevage…and that pink is so not a great color for a red carpet!! it blends too much with the carpet per se! if the woman is pregnant then
there are plenty of meternity wear that look class…take for instance what angie wore!
Ash looks like a (T)rASH here!
Hemlines are in.
The silhouette of the dress just sucks. But that being said it’s not that bad.
She should’ve however gotten a manicure :S
wow…I mispelled like every other word in my first comment -_-
time for bed!
I think she looks great and the gown is stunning on her…except for the length and that weird thing around the thigh area…
The hemline showing (tsk indeed!) The length so very improper as well. The colour and the cleavage sexy! What is with Steve? First that light brown suit which I am sure was in a colour strictly worn by men in my grand dad’s days! Now brown shoes with black? Is this type of dressing deliberate to keep up a funny image? Btw I hope she gets a good Hollywood project when ppl begin to spot her
is she PREGNANT? she is wearing such strange dresses since few days… but I got to say she is looking lovly.. no matter what…
Fuschia pink looks hot on aishwarya…the dress of course is more suited if you wanted to look hot in your third trimester. Lesson learned, Aish, you need to pick hot colors, they suit you, but capitalize on well-cut clothing. If possible, use a stole, or something sheer around the arms. She is a stunner, but can be a drop-dead stunner with the right ensemble.
I scrolled down through this blog..and i just had to comment again because her picture is so captivating.. she looks SOO beautiful…wish that seam wasn’t there.. then it would have been perfect.
My GOD! what is this? dress after dress, it’s more disappointing!! the color suits her but the design is just too much to bear!!
HAS ASH OR HER DESIGNERS NOT BEEN WATCHING ALL THESE AWARD SHOWS LATELY??? where is the inspiration? what’s up with such a VAST cleavage exposure?
I don’t get this woman at all!!!
The hemline!!! and it seriously appears as her under garment if you look closely!!
my oh my, what a beautiful color but what a DISASTROUS DESIGN!!
…one last thought… i don’t think she is pregnant AT ALL!
Check out her belly in the tight tunic she wore on Martha & also in the black fitted gown 4 the NY premiere. She cant all of a sudden have a “second trimester belly” in a matter of days! It is all just weight gain… she has been out of her exercise routine since sometime with all her tours and shooting in jungles. It’s all showing up on her now.
Aishwarya is usually horribly dressed..though these days she was changing her dressing for the western side – hollywood to be exact(remember the annes disasters?) And she did it again – Ash you really dress like trash!
this dress looks soo much familiar to the BLUMARINE dress TABU wore on VOGUE !
im guessing its BLUMARINE or some other western designer.
so doesnt look like cavalli ! for some reson i doubt that
I must say – every Aishwarya post gets the maximum comments –
see i told u….Have a post on ASH n u have over 100 comments gauranteed………loving her in d color…gown perse is very average
you can check out the dress on the cavalli website (it’s number 17). they have a black and shorter version but it still has the weird line towards the middle.
i much preferred the other hot pink cavalli dress she wore last year at cannes!
Wow, awesome! So she can actually get a Cavalli wrong too!!
Tsk..Tsk.. just bad dress luck.
…the black shorter cavalli has a better hemline by the way…doesnt look like a ‘tuck’ and ‘sew’ to me.
However, I must say, she definitely picked the right color…or did Roberto simply send one in ‘pink-panther-pink’ for her?
If you see the Roberto Cavalli website, you wonder why she/ her stylist did not choose No.12 and had to get the black one elongated and in hot pink. The #12 dress is pink and black and would have looked superb on her…
She wore a hot pink nighty, especially in the length and cut.
And people, we “bashers” are not commenting on her face, which all of us agree about being exceptional. Fashion goes beyond the face – it is a combination of dress, body (dressing for your body type, that is), accessories and above it all, attitude.
I saw Aishwarya’s picture from Berlin on a lot of western celebrity sites where her hot pink ‘valentine’ dress was praised. I don’t like the dress in either color or length but a lot of style folks did apparently.
I need to ask amico mio bob (roberto) why he added those ugly extensions to the baby doll…Ash could have carried off the short version. She has a good pair of stumps. As for the top, she should have worn a diaphanous stole. Shoes, could have been a silver stiletto(for those who bring out the daggers) she would have done well. opinions?
Steve Martin looks like he so doesn’t want to be standing next to her in those pics…
woah!! girls too much discussion/debate! LOL its justa dress and ash……well the dress IS really bad with a capital B, but she does look nice, but i hate the ‘grin’!? on her face …..and she should have tried something from mathew williamson or armani(which she s a big fan of) or even balmain, if she wanted to look foreignlol or edgy or simply elegant ….. but then again i sometimes wonder how ash would ahve looked if she hired rachel zoe…..OMG FIRE WORKS!! FREWORKS I TELL U !!!!! LOL XD ..but yea bad dress
How in the world did anyone let her in public with that AWFUL tailoring job!?????
this one wins for MOST comments i’ve ever seen on hhc!! =)
(yay for #130?) lol
i think the pink stands out better than the black, and her skin looks really good.
even tho i dont like the dress itself, the colour is REALLY nice on her.
*yawn* so basically, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. end of argument. geez lol.
This looks like a nightgown & I hate the way she is flaunting her cleavage. The dress is so ill fitting on the top.
She does look pretty though!
I totally agree! No. 12 is stunning!
something not right about the dress…esp. the silhouttee… of the slip i guess…..not happenin
I think there should be a post on what she should wear and how she should wear from head to toe prior to her international appearances. We can vote and give suggestions then blame each other. LOL
Does her stylists or someone from her circle visit this site? Raise your hand. LOL
the short version is so adorable… I’d love one similar to that.
I am still tryng to figure out whta is that line beneath the gown, I am sure a lot of people were asking the same quesiton when they saw her in the event
You would think that the supposedly ‘most beautiful woman in the world’ would have designers all over her but that just shows you its not all about beauty, but also confidence and personality…both of which she doesn’t have LOL
Oh yea forgot to say…her boobies look awesome! She needs to let her puppies out though they look too constrained :P
well..looks like some people love her and some hate her. but the fact that my post is the 150th one on this thread goes prove that nobody has the b***s to ignore her!!!
i think her whole look here has started to grow on me..she looks happy and real..as much as she can :)
K: ” *yawn* so basically, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. end of argument. geez lol.”
LOL ! ! Thats right, “Geez” !
she is out in her night gown…BAADDD!!!
wat the hell is she giggling at???..Steve Martin & Reno seems normal..she is so plastic..
