Not Quite

As awesome as these two ladies are, some effort on the red carpet would’ve been nice… Especially considering how everyone else at the same event was dressed to the nines! A kurta or a tee paired with denims was just too casual.

  1. Dang. I like KSS *so* much. Would love to see her really dressed up, especially in Indian clothes (a la Aaja Nachle, especially the Laila Majnu portion). She still looks so pretty! <3

  2. I love both the looks, although not for the red carpet. But why is there a red carpet for the nomination announcement? Are they just creating new events?

    • Thanks! It’s cute…she accessorized well too. KSS’s hair/makeup looks good.

      Too casual for a red carpet event, but seriously how many red carpet events are there in the hindi film industry? It’s a little ridiculous…

  3. Love Shruti’s outfit – for a day event.

    A bit underdressed for an award show. —but I guess it’s okay given she is one of the youngest in the industry…if not THE youngest. Very young people look naively cute doing such stuff at such events (IMHO). Maybe a few years later…might be inappropriate. For now, its probably okay.

    But she does carry herself well.

  4. I love how simple yet `put together’ Konkona looks here. Something has to be said about her inner confidence and standing up to a personal sense of style. Why should there be a red carpet stereotype? Whats the fun if fashion too narrows down to particular parameters? where is the fun in that?

    • I think there are many ways that KSS could have stuck to her style, without necessarily being so casual (think Kiran Rao, quirky, personality-filled, yet always aptly stylish). I mean, those jeans are something one would wear on an everyday basis, not to any sort of event. Even if she’d just paired the same kurta with a pair of well cut trousers, it would have still been “her”- not expecting her to turn up in a Bebe mini, after all. She looks “put together” maybe for watching a film with friends, but for an industry party, no!

    • I agree!! I totally forgive her all her kurtis, unironed pyjamas and what not, JUST because she is intelligent, talented, opinionated and a wonderful actresses as opposed to the usual bland cookie-cutter bollywood barbie dolls who can do little more than play demure or gyrate to item songs

    • Agree whole-heartedly! There are too many red-carpet rules governing everything. I am actually glad she wore that stunning black kurta. If only Konkona had chosen different denims! Or a churidar maybe.

  5. i like both the looks, and sometimes i think when ur supposed to be an an event/party and ur really not in the mood, such wear can be okay…
