We first saw this Rajat Tangri on Chitrangda back in Feb. Yesterday at the unveiling of I AM She contestants, past winner Ushoshi donned the red gown too complete with her crown and sash.

As great as Ushoshi looked in hers, we’re a tad bit biased towards Chitrangda. :P

From Runway To Photoshoot To Real Life

Less than two weeks ago we saw Sonam sport this Rajat Tangri dress for a Filmfare editorial. On Thu night, Ushoshi wore this dress in real life pairing it with grey (Alexander Wang Jac look-alikes) sandals. I am guessing Ushoshi wanted to play off of the grey of the skirt but those sandals do not work.

Golden Girl!

The gold dress wasn’t that bad. Subtle sandals and a black clutch (and far less gold bronzer) and Ushoshi would’ve fared better. But as is (especially that eye-searing pink against the gold), this look is a WTHeyyy!

Seeing Double

Now, now, now… this is quite interesting, isn’t it? Miss Universe aspirant in a gown that is heavily reminiscent of a Saab… Who’d have thunk!

We couldn’t possibly begin to imagine how the designer who put this gown out would even begin to defend it, but we sure would love to hear it!

Update: Well, HT Cafe picked up on our story and asked stylist Rajat Tangri. Read his comments below in the article.

Poll This!

For the past several years, designer Ritu Kumar has been dressing up Miss Indias for the National Costume round but this year (post Sushmita Sen taking over the selection process for Miss India Universe), the costume has gone a different route. A very different route.

Ushoshi’s gown this year was designed by Kolkata based designers Dev R Nil who on suggestion from Ushoshi dropped the traditional sari/lehenga idea and created this piece inspired by the national bird: the peacock.

Yes, it is quite drastic and may find very less takers but I don’t think I could take yet another cutout-choli design from Ms. Kumar! As for the gown itself, it is too in-your-face-peacock. Here’s hoping over the years, we get better!

What’s your verdict on the design? Love it or hate it?

P.S. Catch Ms. Sri Lanka in a more toned down blue costume inside.

P.P.S. ‘apurva’ reminds us that the design seems eerily similar to the Marchesa Spring 2010. An homage to Marchesa (or McQueen) or badly executed (or well executed depending on who you ask) inspired gown.
