Bollywood Update: Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor Cover Filmfare for Teri Meri Kahaani

Team TMK

Yes, she did it again (see: https://fashionwidget.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/cover-girl-an-open-letter-to-fashion-actress-priyanka-chopra-23/). Ex-Miss World Priyanka Chopra yet again has graced the cover of Filmfare magazine with that now signature hand-on-hip pose but at least this time she has company in her ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ co-star Shahid Kapoor to make things interesting. The pair appear on the July 4th, 2012 issue on international newsstands now.

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!

Cover Girl: An Open Letter to ‘Fashion’ Actress Priyanka Chopra

Cover Girl: An Open Letter to 'Fashion' Actress Priyanka Chopra

Dear Priyanka,

it has been nearly four years now since your award-winning performance in ‘Fashion’ as the iconic supermodel Meghna Mathur. Who can forget the epic final scene, where Meghna walks the runway during Paris fashion week as the showstopper and she reaches the end of the runway, pivots and strikes that signature pose? Yeah, much like the modified version you have been using on magazine covers since 2008.

The point is, having just viewed you on the cover of the June 2012 edition of ‘Hello Magazine – India’ (pictured), I think it’s safe to say that the time has come to bid adieu and retire the hand-on-hip-tilt-to-the-side pose. Sure this is a great way to trick the camera into creating the illusion of a smaller waistline and yes it does make you look as fierce as Meghna but it is time to let go PC. You are already tiny and gorgeous, no illusions needed. Now open up your bag of tricks and dig for more poses.

Love & Light,

Fashionwidget

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: Priyanka (seen here at the April 5th, 2012 unveiling of her upcoming film ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ in Mumbai) had been doing so well on the red carpet until this beautiful red mis-step which I happen to prefer on the Lanvin model. The dress is great but just not on PC who has managed to make such a statement piece look rather matronly and unflattering.

Ganesh Hegde Weds Sunayna Shetty – Congrats to the Newly Weds + Fashionwidget’s Fashion Review

Bollywood Wedding Fashion

WHO: Bollywood Celebrities

WHAT: Ganesh Hegde weds Sunayna Shetty

WHEN: June 5th 2011

WHERE: Mumbai, India

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: First and foremost, congratulations to ace choreographer Ganesh and his wife Sunayna Hedge. We wish them all the best. Now on to the fashion statements that caught our peepers as have now become second nature on the wedding red carpets these days. Maybe the blogosphere is partially responsible for this new trend as we do pay attention to them whenever these events take place. I have always maintained that it is tacky to show up at someone’s wedding, dressed to take the attention away from the bride (anywhere in the world) not just in T-Town Bollywood.  A certain celebrity who recently tied the knot and opted for a low-key wedding (and who shall remain nameless) said that she/he would rather avoid a tamasha (Hindi: circus) style wedding altogether and I have to say that I cannot blame her/him given what wedding ceremonies have now morphed into for the Hindi film fraternity. Case in point the three lovely ladies featured in the photo compilation above, while Shamita Shetty should be considered part of the celebrant brigade (as it was her cousin Ganesh getting hitched) so her super flashy saree and skin show is excused, she was happy for her cousin I guess. But what is Priyanka Chopra’s excuse? And what does Sophie Choudhry have to say for herself dressing this way? IT’S A WEDDING!!! Not a movie premiere or music launch + respect your age if you are no longer in your early twenties or a teenager. I’m sure there is a way to drap this style saree without showing so much skin.  Just because there is a red carpet and the paparazzi have shown up does not give you the right to turn another person’s ceremony or event into a “tamasha” that’s just not cool. You dressed okay ladies, just not for this event. That said, I loved the ever classy Shilpa Shetty (pictured below) who came dressed for the occasion.  Once again, congrats to the newlyweds from the entire Fashionwidget team.

A Jumpsuit With Priyanka Chopra’s Name On It

It’s no secret that Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra is currently trending the jumpsuit look and over the last year or so, the actress has sampled them at her red carpet events in nearly every variation imaginable. As a matter of fact, her most recent jumpsuit sighting was just last week in Mumbai at a Nikon event (where she was crowned brand ambassador) during their latest Nikon Coolpix launch.

We must admit, we were not too in love with her look at the event which is why we were psyched when we spotted this flesh-toned belted flared-pant jumpsuit by Salvatore Ferragamo during the brand’s Spring/Summer 2011 Collection showcase in Singapore. Perfect for Ms. Chopra don’t you agree?
