Kareena In Vogue India: Decoded

Comment image 52

While her previous Vogue shoot was more diverse (in terms of styling and choices of outfit), the December shoot has Kareena in lots of sequin. If the red ‘Armaan by Sunaina Puri’ dress looks familiar, it is because she wore it to the Karan Johar show at HDIL Couture Week. We guess she got to keep it, except, we’d have loved to see her in that Manish Arora though! :P

    • No, the first picture has a small hint of a smile and the rest are the same damn *boring* expression! For once, I thought, the models looked better than her because she is way too skinny! The outfits are good, but they’d’ve been better if they’d’ve been carried off by curvier women!

      VERDICT — Outfits–7/10 | On Kareena–4/10

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE the outfits, especially the manish arora! Not sure why the bolly crowd still hasn’t really worn m.arora’s clothes or naeem khans….
    she looks scary in the first pic….

  2. Oh my gosh.. is this the same Kareena?? Just watced Refugee and she looked beautiful, so glowing and full of life. She looks a bag of bones here, the first pic esp makes her look emaciated. The Versace dress is stunninf though, I like the colour on her. Also love the ankle boots.

  3. i thought i’d never say this in a million years…she looks amazing!!! (never say never)
    love all the accessories- wrist cuffs, rings and necklaces.
    also love the booties she is wearing with the manish arora dress.
    i like the chanel and versace shots the most…like her posing with the hunched/arched shoulders

    • I agree, I think she looks AMAZING and I’m usually quite the anti-kareena. Love these pictures, especially the middle one in the bottom most row..she looks smokin’ in all of them! LOVE LOVE LOVE

  4. MW & Versace dresses are both cute , as for kareena the only thing that works for her is her eye makeup, otherwise her expression + body + clothes are not in sync with each other which instantly puts you off

  5. I love love love the versace …. the colour, the scales … pretty! mathew williamson is good too , just the right amount of bling … perfect for a night out

    not fond of the manish arora though … i think i’m the only one, but i’m not a fan of manish … some of his pieces i like but mostly he is just too eccentric for my taste. its less edgy more crazy. i would never put him on my wish

  6. The first thought that came to mind was-‘this is gonna give me nightmares-why did I come to this site so late at night’? No lies. She looks scary. Can’t believe that massive resources were probably-actually utilized to create this hideous shoot.

  7. Love love love it, one of her most confident and well executed shoots!

    Fab. Though versatility in expression would be appreciated. Creativity guys!!! But then one doesn’t expect that from Vogue India.

    Nevertheless the flair and confidence is on mark :)

  8. I must confess I have a soft spot for Kareena as an actress but the Lara pics set the bar so high that this cover really doesn’t do much – just proof that all the photoshopping in the world doesn’t help.

  9. Our Lady of Zero Land looks like she had a bad bout of food poisoning while the photographer was just so inspired by her pain!
    The last photo: Stomach cramps, the one over that:staggering out of the loo after half an hour of loosies, the one over this one: stomach cramps again. Next, trying to be glam while unable to get up from the pot, and finally, the very first photo: Kareena giving the come hither looks to the ambulance guys who are approaching with a needle and a bottle of saline drip.

    Dehydration, it’s so high fashion.

  10. Is vogue running out of ideas? i don’t usually buy fashion mags (the net is more eco friendly!) but i know that vogue comes up with really creative editorials and concepts…putting up a famous actor/model in front of a white screen doesn’t seem very innovative.

    They can blame the recession …but im not buying it! V.India needs to step it up!

  11. i seem to be in minority here.. but i just love her look in this feature. its very international. Her eye make up and hair is so carefully careless, its beautiful. I love the matthew williamson dress on her. And id like to add that she does not HAVE to change her expression in every photograph!! Its not an acting showcase here.. she needs to define and underline the clothes. Well done kareena!

  12. I like all of the dresses here ..but not Kareena ..she needs to eat .. there’s something very off about these pictures!!

    and agree with jujunye .. there is something vampire-ish about the Chanel pic!!

  13. i am a kareena fan but she is beginning to look the same now … boring …. i love her in the versace dress but the dress isnt my fav …. my fav dresses are MW,SM and gucci

  14. I’m a bad judge when it comes to covers. I want to say she looks fierce but then in the back of my mind I’m wondering if her effort to look ‘fierce’ is highly transparent? Can’t decide. Anyway, her persona in the Manish Arora reminds me of Sonam Kapoor.

  15. I am sorry but they need to shoot the stylist. Bebo has very masculine features, they need to soften it not exaggerate it so much she looks like a drag. Love the dresses. Bebo is trying too much here, and ends up looking as a drag! She looks sick and sad… The fall of star*

  16. She luks so scary..sumhow she doesn’t suit for gothic luks.. especially d first pic.. how did she even approve of this pic. I like d Gucci n williamson on her.. all dresses r beautiful xcept the channel one! So tacky n messy!!

  17. The first picture is terrible.. she looks scary ! I am a big fan of kareena and I think she looks awesome in Kurbaan. But this look is really too harsh, gothic, vampirish !
    She looks nice in the manish arora outfit and also in the last three. But the first… eeks !

  18. she looks pretty …but u know what i am tired tired ….really tired of seeing her face on practically every cover …toooooo much of over-exposure ……cant they get someone else …cant they be innovative in their ideas!!!!!

  19. Kareena I think has failed to carry this kind of look. She looks damn scary in the first few pics…it’s like someone sucked all the blood out of her! The last 3 pics are better…I still prefer her princess look in HiBlitz.

  20. She looks like she’s sick or something! I wish they had enhanced her skin tone to look a bit more natural rather then making her look like a ghost! She could be used as one of the actors for a haunted house with that look.

  21. what a waste. apart from the final 3 images the rest looks horrible. Is it just the quality of the images in the first two cases.. or are they really shot like that? fierce, edgy.. i don’t think so.
