If it’s about health and fitness, you can always count on Bips to have a say. Here she is on the cover of the latest issue of Atelier, clad in black denim shorts and a black short sleeved lycra top looking like she is ready to whip us all into shape.

Cannes Last Call: Arjun Rampal in Rohit Bal with Supermodel wife Mehr Jessia-Rampal in Tarun Tahiliani

Cannes Last Call: Arjun Rampal in Rohit Bal with Supermodel wife Mehr Jessia-Rampal in Tarun Tahiliani

With all the fuss of the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival, which came to a close this past Sunday, it’s easy to have missed some great fashion moments in between. Speaking of great fashion moments I missed, Indian National award-winning actor Arjun (a former model) who is also the brand representative of Chivas (a co-sponsor of the film festival) walked the red carpet with his supermodel wife, Mehr. For their debut, the handsome couple stuck with the patriotic theme (as showcased by fellow Indian Cannes attendees like Kalki Koechlin and Aishwarya Rai) by wearing home-grown designers this year. On point, Rampals, well done.

UK Fashion Update: Kelly Rowland and other Best Dressed Stars at the 2012 Glamour Women of the Year Awards

UK Fashion Update: Kelly Rowland and other Best Dressed Stars at the 2012 Glamour Women of the Year Awards

TOP THREE BEST DRESSED:

1. Kelly Rowland was sincerely a stunner in Maria Grachvogel. The gown fit her like a glove, hair….perfect, makeup…perfect, jewellery…minimalist perfection. This is how you win best dressed.

2. Eva Longoria, fresh off her impressive fashion run at Cannes this year and considering all of the designer outfits she has worked through in the last week, it isn’t surprising that she rang up BFF Victoria Beckham to dress her for this event. Not too crazy about the shoes (style) but the nude tone make her legs look longer. This is how I love to see Eva, not in those overwhelming ball gowns.

3. Jessica Alba in Alexander McQueen. Perhaps Sonam Kapoor should have put a hold on this gown for her sophomore turn at Cannes this year? It seemed she was so hell bent on wearing black and look how the equally gorgeous Alba pulls off her own gothic on nude statement. Like I said, no one looks bad in McQueen. Watch and learn, Sonam.

Breaking Fashion: Supermodel Deepika Padukone Covers Vogue India – June 2012

Breaking Fashion: Supermodel Deepika Padukone Covers Vogue India - June 2012

I have seen some pretty tacky people thrown onto the cover of Vogue India in recent times, something that would never fly if Anna Wintour were running the show. Thankfully, we can all look forward to the month of June in vogue now that it has been revealed that next month’s cover girl is our favourite supermodel turned actress Deepika Padukone. Grab a copy as soon as you can. Fashion ON.

Fashion Update: Sonam Kapoor Fairs Better in D&G at Winners Dinner but Too Little Too Late?

Sonam Kapoor in D&G


Seen here at the winners dinner party hosted by Dolce & Gabbana, Ms. Kapoor appeared to attempt to redeem herself from the ill-advised and poorly executed McQueen gown she had worn earlier in the evening on the grand Cannes red carpet. This however, came too little too late as fewer people saw her appearance at this small dinner party’s red carpet than her entrance at the steps of the palais des festivals. In my opinion, she should have worn this lovely red head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana look on the grand red carpet. Very prima-donna, very prima-ballerina. Yes, she was painfully going toe-to-toe with the red carpet but it was a battle could win and did. The fashionwidget is pleased.

Cannes 2012 Finale – Bollywood’s Sonam Kapoor’s Red Carpet Report Card

Cannes 2012 Finale - Bollywood's Sonam Kapoor's Red Carpet Report Card

debatably Bollywood’s hottest new top-notch fashionista, Sonam Kapoor (who arrived in Cannes a week before she) walked the red carpet during one of the final film premieres on that last day (day 12) of the festival. She wore an ill-fitted (an ill-advised) gothic noir sequin-embellished-applique-nude-lined gown by the house of Alexander McQueen and it just did not work for me.

Ten Things That Went Wrong With This Look:

1. The model looked better wearing it on display and it burns me to say that because I hardly ever prefer anything on a runway model over a fashionista on the red carpet.

2. Kapoor looked as if she is drowning in fabric, why does the model have cinched waist definition and not the actress? Wasn’t she fitted for the dress?

3. Why this dress? Kapoor arrived in Cannes early enough to have had something custom-made or at least go to ten fittings for the dress she chose.

4. Blotchy makeup with the concealer peaking through from beneath the foundation did nothing to help the look. As a L’Oreal spokesmodel, her face should have been flawless. Are you kidding me? Even Jane Fonda came “flawlessly” correct and she’s 74!!!
FYI: The makeup you represent got you on that red carpet, Sonam.

5. The way the flash from the camera hit the nude lining helped underline the unflattering silhouette, perhaps black lining underneath the gown would have worked better. It’s a request that I’m sure could have been accommodated.

6. Tall, skinny and beautiful…so why pick a black dress anyhow? She wore a black and white Jean Paul Gaultier for her Cannes debut last year, why not switch things up? I expected more from her.

7. She looked tired, was our go-to Bollywood fashionista overworking it at Cannes this yeat?

8. Lack of accessories, although I have to say that in such a busy and heavy on the detailing gown, she might have gone overboard if she tried to accessorise.

9. I wish I couldn’t see her shoes underneath the lining, it messed the looked up further in my opinion.

10. The fact that she went wrong in a McQueen dress…I mean, who goes wrong in McQueen?

Cannes Update: Hot Mamas Reese Witherspoon, Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan and Jackie Appiah

On day 11 and the eve of the grand-finale of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Hollywood’s Reese Witherspoon (curves and all) joined the red carpet parade of beautiful actresses on maternity leave. In a thin-multi-strapped blue empire-waist Versace gown, a visibly pregnant Witherspoon walked the red carpet at the premiere of her film ‘Mud.’ Also, beaming with motherly pride this year at Cannes were Bollywood’s Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan in Elie Saab on day 10 and Gollywood’s (Ghana’s film industry) Jackie Appiah in JiL Boutique on day 3.
