The In Between Girls

ARGGGH what a crazy couple of weeks.  I find myself struggling to balance what I enjoy doing with my responsibilities and priorities.  Unfortunately, my responsibilities come first and pleasures like blogging, shopping, magazine reading and painting my nails have been put on the back burner until Winter break.

Since I am saving money by my lack of time to shop, i do a lot of outfit browsing to see what I want to purchase when I will have a chance, or even what I can ask for for Christmas.

*I have to put a new hair straightener on that Christmas list..old faithful is crumbling*

LookBook and Pinterest are just 2 of my favorite sites to check out how people put together outfits—click the buttons on the right to connect with me on those sites—a lot of the looks would never work for my body type but I take…

Kareena Kapoor opts for a Manish Malhotra Ensemble for her Wax Statue Unveiling in the UK

VA-VA-VOOM

Kareena Kapoor

After her rather bland working of a Dolce & Gabbana sequin dress on the red carpet at the premiere of her new film Ra.One, Kareena Kapoor turned it up a notch today at the launch of her Madame Tussaud’s wax statue. She successfully went the traditional route by wearing a maroon and beige embellished saree designed by Indian fashion designer Manish Malhotra which looked more flattering on her and in which she looked more comfortable and at ease compared to the D&G. Well done Kareena!

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.

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.
