Dressed Down, Dressed Up

Comment image 43

Lakshmi and Queenie were both in Stella McCartney at the Vogue Beauty awards but when it came to their looks, it was poles apart. Lakshmi went with a dressed down look in a McCartney jumpsuit paired with orange kolhapuris, a look that I loved!

Queenie went for a dressed up look in a blue Stella McCartney gown. I want to like the look, but the black belt and the side-swept curled hair made this look much too pageanty.

  1. love the jump suit and orange K or lakshmi, the less said about queenie the better, the worst thing about her look is the dolly parton hair and make up

  2. Yep, Lakshmi looks fantastic.
    Queenie on the other hand looks so bad that I almost feel sorry for her. The makeup, the hair, the cleavage – absolutely atrocious. And I’ve said this before, have we ever seen her in anything non-bling-sequin-jing? Really, woman.
    Hands down one of the worst-dressed women ever.

  3. i love, love lakshmi’s look …. i wish i had the height to carry off this jumpsuit ….. i never like jumpsuits, but this one i have fallen in love with

    errrr…… the other look reminds me of the bar dancer in the early 90s movie

  4. I love the concept of Lakshmi’s look- white jumpsuit, pretty cool orange kolhapuris. I just don’t like how it fits her, it kind of sits like a bag ruining the whole look.

  5. wow wow..how stunning does laksmi look..but then again she can look like a goddess in almost anything…with that height n near-perfect bone structure…

    • I agree! Lakshmi looks pretty average to me.
      Queenie comparatively is pretty even at 40+. It is just that her make up is always so over the top. She has this clown make up on always and it looks terrible. She really needs to dress her age.
      In pic above if she toned down her makeup 70% and used a more elegant hairdo she would still be able to pull it off.

      • Maybe by “Indian Standards” (*sarcastic voice*) fair, round face, fair, average height, fair, light eyes, fair, full-figured, Menon is “average” or “overrated”.
        but by international standards – tall, lean, chiseled, high cheekbones, Lakshmi is way ahead most of them :P

        You ROCK lakshmi!!!

    • Bleh, guys…
      I don’t think this even worth responding to, but I’m going to anyway.
      Lakshmi has a totally unique face with a fantastic bone structure; a regal, different and very strong kind of beauty.
      Despite the problem with body image, I love the models of today because they’re so strangely beautiful; it’s a good environment for the “embrace what you have” movement.
      This isn’t even supposed to be about beauty, this is about fashion/style x.

      • pat on the back for pdaevro, for telling it like it is! Lakshmi is beautiful (thank god the naysayers here are actually a minority); re: Queenie, since i can’t say anything complimentary, i’d rather not say anything at all.

  6. Resort wear should be worn like resort wear – without too much add-on bling – otherwise the look just comes out weird – which is why Lakshmi fares better than Queenie who’s always maxed out in every aspect – hair, makeup, belt, shoes, jewelry, I applaud her for having the energy to dress up all the time.

  7. Lakshmi’s too under-dressed. It is an awards function, at the end of the day. You don’t walk in like you were lounging around.
    And Queenie’s look may have worked if she’d toned down the make-up. But I don’t think she knows what “toned-down” means. So I’ll let her be.

  8. Queenie looks right out of a rishi kapoor movie,where he is singing a song with guitar on stage and people like her are dancing all around

  9. Whats with Queenie’s face- looks scary and did she do her makeup in the dark???
    As for her obsession with putting a belt on everything she wears- give the security blanket a rest!

  10. Queenie’s is about to break into some disco moves from the 80’s – saare jawaan aahaa naache naache!! saare haseen aahaa naache naache!!
