Colour Blocking with Iman in a Show-Stopping Design by Prabal Gurung – Fashionwidget’s GET THE LOOK Series


WHO: Iman

WHAT: Gordon Parks Foundation awards dinner and auction

WHEN: June 1, 2011

WHERE: Gotham Hall, New York City

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: We did not have Spring in New York City this year so we gladly welcomed this amazingly colourful Prabal Gurung Spring 2011 frock as soon as we spotted it on the red carpet worn by Supermodel Iman Bowie. It has been said that extremely beautiful women usually rely on their beauty to carry them through everything including fashion. That is not the case with Iman, a woman over 50 with a fashion sense that is as forward thinking as it is sophisticated and revolutionary. Many would argue that she is a beneficiary of the fact that she has been in fashion for a good portion of her life thus far but I say you cannot by style and you can buy class. You either have it or you don’t and this woman has it times 2. Beauty and grace with style to boot.

Cannes Film Festival DAY 2 – Best Dressed Star – Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan in Armani Privé


WHO: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan

WHAT: ‘Sleeping Beauty’ Screening at the Cannes Film Festival 2011 – Day 2

WHEN: May 12

WHERE: Cannes, France

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: She has  a served as a juror amongst the prestigious Cannes Film Festival jury, walked the red carpet for L’Oreal & AmFar, world premiered/screened four of her own films, dined with the elite in honour of Martin Scorsese and all this while flying a proud banner for India along the way inspiring many to follow in her footsteps. In fact, Aishwarya has been a regular on the Cannes red carpet for ten years now and it’s no wonder why this year she looks like she has truly come into her own. As we take a look back at her fashion triumphs and fails (2003 being the worst thus far) through the years, I think we all can agree that this has truly been a remarkable journey. Stunning in Armani Privé (a designer favourite of hers no doubt), Mrs Bachchan (jr) showed up on Day 2 with unflappable poise ready to play the fashion game yet again and this year, she’s in it to win it. A+
