French Model Laetitia Casta Unveiled as the New Face of Dolce & Gabbana Perfumes

French Model Laetitia Casta Unveiled as the New Face of Dolce & Gabbana Perfumes

You know, just the other day I was going through some old photos of the annual Cannes Film Festival and I spotted Laetitia Casta in quite few, walking the red carpet for L’Oreal (the official sponsors of the festival). I wondered why we hadn’t seen or heard from her in recent years (busy with family life I’m sure… she has three kids now).

Well, if you are a fan of perhaps the most popular face to grace those famous Guess advertisements then you’re in luck. Luxury designer brand Dolce & Gabbana recently unveiled the 34-year-old model as the new campaign ambassador for their line of perfumes.

Welcome back, Ms. Casta!

Bollywood Fashion Update: Double Fashion Assault on Sonam Kapoor via Priyanka Chopra and Cousin Parineeti!!!

WHO: Priyanka and Parineeti Chopra take on Fashion Icon Sonam Kapoor’s style

WHAT: Fashion Showdown

WHEN: June 9th

WHERE: 2012 IIFA Awards in Singapore

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Sonam Kapoor’s debut on the international scene at last year’s Cannes Film Festival was a big deal for the Indian fashion circuit and perhaps even globally as many international designers such as Prabal Gurung, Victoria Beckham & Jean Paul Gaultier (whom she wore for her debut) began to open their eyes to the baby fashion darling. That said, stylists for both Parineeti & Priyanka Chopra must have known what the were doing when they decided to place both actresses in statements already made by Kapoor. Excuse me while I gasp, if no stylists were involved. I think Priyanka wearing the Dolce & Gabbana dress (previously worn by Kapoor at Cosmopolitan’s Fun & Fearless Female Awards) is actually forgivable because in the long run designers want their clothes to be worn by as many people as possible. It is her cousin Parineeti’s fashion faux pas that took the whole ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’ thing to a whole other level. SHE IS WEARING A JATIN VARMA THAT LOOKS LIKE A PLAGIARISED KNOCK-OFF OF THE JEAN PAUL GAULTIER KAPOOR WORE AT CANNES…LAST YEAR. Should stars be caught wearing knock-offs? Should designers dressing stars be caught allegedly borrowing from other designers? It is one thing to do something like this on a regional level but at an award show that takes place at an international venue where the foreign press is invited? There are pictures on Getty for crying out loud!

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.

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…

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.
