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+

Lackluster Lakme Fashion Week Had Us Missing Deepika Padukone

Lackluster Lakme Fashion Week [Summer/Resort 2011] had us missing the cat-walking days of Deepika Padukone, supermodel extraordinaire.

As the Summer/Resort 2011 Fashion in Mumbai, India draws to a close,  most fashion blogging mavens worth their salt find themselves scratching their heads and wondering when it all began in the first place? With most of the displayed collections leaving us with more of a feeling of “blah” rather than “oh-lah-lah” it’s small wonder that this fashion week came and went faster than that ‘Drive Angry 3D’ flick at the Box Office. Perhaps it was the absence of A-list show-stoppers we have become accustomed to gawking at on the runway or maybe the models just failed to bring that extra oomph to the collections. Sure you had your A-list guests like Kareena Kapoor at Manish Malhotra and Juhi Chawla and Urmila Matondkar at Anita Dongre’s show but still something was missing. Maybe it’s time for the next Anushka Sharma, Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone. Yes, before they were famous actresses, they all did time as runway models and always brought the house down at every show they did.  Maybe we need that “It” model to get us all excited about Lakme Fashion Week again, that one model we’ll all be talking about even after the trends, the glitz and the glamour. A tradition that certainly was missing from this season’s catwalk.
