Twenty Ten-Tastic: A Look At Some Stand-Out Moments!

Comment image 30

There’s no scene quite like the Fashion scene (you know there’s a show-tune that goes just like that somewhere out there) and here’s the lowdown on what caught our eye in the year that was 2010.

The year belonged to women who weren’t afraid of making a splash and owning what they wore; not a wallflower in sight. The silhouettes, the colors, the cuts and the designers were all as varied as the months they were spotted in and the women sporting them, but boy did they work the stiletto out of them!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had two amazing moments on the red carpet, once in an embellished Elie Saab gown and again in a Sabyasachi sari at Cannes. The pale-gold sari had us swoon. Also having her moment on the red carpet was Freida Pinto in a beautiful Oscar De La Renta cocktail dress. Accessorized perfectly, this green dress was by far one of our favorites on Ms. Pinto this year.

Giving the sari it’s due were Bipasha and Kareena who sported non-blingy, un-filmi and anti-christ to the sequins- simple woven saris. Love.

Ira in Manish Arora, Feroze in McQueen and Avanti in Ashish gave us the spunk and the fun. Speaking of which, Natasha did Dolce & Gabbana at the races, a look that must have made Fashion Gods neigh happy.

While, Katrina and Twinkle took on the churidaars with the former in a Tahiliani anarkali and the latter in an Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla chikan kurta, Haseena channeled an old-world vibe in her lehenga. All three ladies did glamour in an old world, charming sort of way which we loved.

Kangna had her moment in Dior, in a beautiful white gown with a Shirley Temple’esque do. Nothing cutesy here though, she brought the siren back to red carpet style.

Also in Dior was Kalyani who did the ladies who lunch thing, in yellow no less. Charu and Priya did Stella and Lanvin respectively and boy did they do ’em well. Gayatri in Gucci and Sonam in Cue rounded off this list. Perfectly.

Chic is when a woman is in harmony with herself” says Giambattista Valli… No words have rung truer in the year Twenty Ten. And now, on to 2011. Salut!

  3. love freida’s look….the sabya saree on aish is pretty but the hair is way too flat, i am sure she gave more gorgeous appearances than that…………

  4. Hi Payal & Priyanka,
    I enjoyed coming to your blog everyday without fail for the whole of 2010. Wish you both a very Happy New Year.

  5. hey, u haven’t added deepika’s gorgeous sabya, ndtv appearance….
    and u haven’t added dia mirza’s or any of genelia’s…or priyamani’s sabya saree, or rani’s durga pooja appearance or sarah jane latest one………

    • i guess this is highly inappropriate for you to say this…ppl have their own choices and they have a right to express that what you like somebody may not like and this is common sense….and their are times when aishwarya’s fan doesn’t like other celebrities so shouldn’t they think the same for theirselves….ANYWAYS HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    • @adara…..aishwarya rai made countless appearances this year including the international ones…..more than any other actress made this year….so if she has two on her credit its actually disappointing!!
      i dont think ash’s gold saree deserves to be in this bcoz of the accessories,hairstyling and makeup the look falls flat…also kareena kangna and haseena dresses are ok!!

  6. Awesome picks to sum up 2010! Thank you Priyanka and Payal for making our year that little bit more fashionable! Loved every post, every comment, and lots of laughs from the occassional WTHeyy!!

  10. Happy New Year girls. Thanks for being such an integral part of our lives. But I must say that the list was not half as exciting as it could have been .Most were very diplomatic and safe choices. Ash definitely doesn’t deserve being mentioned twice after such a disastrous year she’s had.

  11. Katrina doesn’t deserve to be in the list from what we’ve seen of her this year. This particular appearance is off too with the uber long anarkali and the totally inappropriate choice of footwear. I think the rest of the picks are pretty good though. Happy New Year to you girls and thanks for keeping us entertained :)

  12. Hello P&P, A very happy New Year to you… I read your blog almost every single day. Get to know the latest fashion trends whether I like it or not….Keep it up!
