Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan dons Classic Sabyasachi Mukherjee at the Bvlgari Hotel Launch in London

Fresh off her most prolific Cannes Film Festival visit yet, Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan walked the red carpet alongside the likes of Isabella Rossellini and Florence Welch Tuesday night in London, England as a special guest for the opening of the new Bvlgari Hotel and Residences.

The actress looked regal in black, off white and gold gown complete with a matching net shawl, dressed up with a black & gold Bvlgari Serpenti minaudière leather clutch (£3120, Harrods, Tel. 00 44 20 7225 6611) and MEDITERRANEAN EDEN ring in 18kt yellow gold with peridot and pavé diamonds (call Bvlgari Tel: 44 (0)20 7872 99 69 for price).

Her gown (or anarkali as it is known in India) was designed by legendary Indian fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee and you can shop his latest collection here: http://www.sabyasachi.com

LADIES IN RED

Tiwa Savage

Nollywood superstar Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde hobnobbed with the likes of Thandie Newton, Tiwa Savage and Amy Willerton at a recent OK! Magazine event in London, England. The obvious theme of the night was red and what better way to make a fashion statement than to arrive dressed in red on the red carpet? It’s a bold move considering you will most certainly be competing with the carpet but I think these ladies pulled it off. Shop the looks below.

Kareena Kapoor in Dolce & Gabbana at the Ra.One Premiere in London (Fashion Query)

RA.NONE :(

Kareena Kapoor in D&G

Pros: Flawless Makeup. Clear Skin, Great Figure and the dress accentuates that.

Cons: The dress makes her look matronly. She should have picked something more fun or perhaps stuck with something traditional like an anarkali or a saree. Something bright, come on Kareena even the Queen is a fan of bright colours. Another distraction is that this D&G gown has been worn by too many fashionistas before her and better.

Kareena Kapoor (2011)

A premiere at the o2 arena in London is considered a big deal. The international media are guaranteed to be there, the red carpet will be grand and the world will be watching. I’m not sure but I am willing to guess that this event marks Kareena Kapoor biggest movie premiere outside of India. As far as I know, she has never been to Cannes (as an actress anyway), she has never escorted any of her films to an international film festival (unlike some of her fellow Bollywood actresses who happen to be seasoned international event veterans) like Aishwarya Rai, Bipasha Basu, Shilpa Shetty or Preity Zinta and I’m quite certain that she has never been to the Oscars or the Golden Globes. For all the afore-mentioned reasons, I am willing to cut her some slack for the choice of attire she decided on for the Ra.One premiere.

(L-R) Shah Rukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor & Arjun Rampal

The fact that she is a novice on the international event circuit will not stop me from asking why she opted for such a matronly look that too with a dress that has been worn so many times (and possibly better) by others and it won’t stop me from pointing them out either. So here goes nothing…

SAME D&G DRESS DIFFERENT GIRL

Perhaps Kareena should take notes on how to appear A+ at an international event from Shilpa Shetty (pictured below), who wore a similar D&G gown to the IIFAs in Canada earlier in the year.

Let’s hope Kareena dresses better to the unveiling of her wax statue at Madame Tussaud’s in Blackpool on Thursday (October 27th) stay tuned.
