Bollywood Fashion Update: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan’s Yummy-Mummy Sidewalk Style

Not that it should matter to anybody but Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan appears to be steadily losing the baby-weight she had infamously received so much flack for following the recent birth of her daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan. The Indian actress and former Miss World has often be spotted in a long black Mullet shrug-coat (pictured) which seems to be her go to fashion accessory in light of her newly fuller figure and I have to say it is very flattering. In my personal opinion, when a person does not shop for a lot of clothing in a new size/shape they are in (especially following weight gain), it seems to indicate an eagerness to get back to the figure they once were. Hopefully, when she does people will realise that she owes them nothing.

Sidewalk Style: Penelope Cruz Expresses Her Love For Espresso Head-To-Toe

Sidewalk Style: Penelope Cruz Expresses Her Love For Espresso Head-To-Toe

Attending a screening of ‘From Rome with love’ last evening in New York City, new mum and Academy-award-winning actress Penelope Cruz sent temperatures rising (seriously, it was like 100° yesterday) in a skin-tight lacy (if I had to guess, Dolce & Gabbana but correct me if I’m wrong) espresso-brown mini dress. What I love most about this look is the fact that everything matches to a tee (shoes, clutch, dress, hair) and the length of the dress is just right. This looks like a woman who is comfortable in her own skin and therefore does not feel the need to try so hard at all. In fine form, Mrs. Javier Bardem.

Go Penelope!

Sidewalk Style: Kim Kardashian Gets Peplum-ed in Paris

Parisian Style?

Kim K.

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: Kim Kardashian is very stylish but this look begs the question. Beige can be a very cruel colour on curvy girls as there is nowhere to hide unless you are wearing a beige ball gown. Perhaps, a body sculpting silhouette would have been more flattering (and not to mention forgiving) on the well-endowed Kardashian. The doggy-collar chain in on-trend but I’m not sure I like it with this ensemble and I also would have preferred colourful strappy heels instead of playing it safe in typical noir.

Fashion Update: Solange Knowles Stuns in Yellow + More Fascinating Looks from the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Fashionwidget’s Favourites

Karolina, Solange & Kate

Zoe & Padma

June, Hilary & Selita

From Zoë Saldaña’s noir sheer cut-out Prabal Gurung to Solange Knowles in a yellow and white Marni mini, the fashions of the CFDA fashion awards were certainly a hot topic for discussion this year. I especially appreciated the understated elegance of Padma Lakshmi’s intricately detailed Naeem Khan gown, in a sea of colourful statement ensembles, I think she managed to stand out in black just like Zoë Saldaña. June Abrose glittered in silver sequins. Hilary Rhonda colour-blocked in cut-out perfection and Selita Ebanks was a vision in white. With the absence of Lady Gaga (a previous CFDA fashion award recipient) who stole the show and not to mention all the attention last year, there was room for all sorts of fashion statements this year. Fashionwidget, narrowed it down to the nine pictures as seen above, we also loved Devon Aoki in her amazing red and black Alice+Olivia strapless gown. Unfortunately, our photographer was unable to snap a photo of her. Never fear, I will re-blog or update this post if I stumble upon a photo of her (in the dress) that I can legally upload.

Sidewalk style at its bodacious best. I really don’t know about the heels ms. Longoria sported last evening but her hair, makeup & little black dress were simply killer!

Sidewalk Style: Jessica Alba Pumps up the Style Volume at the Gas Pump in Beverly Hills, California


Jessica Alba

Fluid Longline Blazer - $130 -

Tie Neck Blouse W/ Studs White - $99 -

Mother The Looker mid-rise skinny jeans - $195 -

Jimmy Choo Brown Embellished Leather And Snakeskin 'Vivienne' Platform Sandals - $1,356 -

Victoria Beckham Cat Eye-Frame Acetate Sunglasses - $195 (£124) -

One of the reasons why I love Jessica Alba’s style is because she seems to dress to please herself and her like-minded peers i.e. she dresses for women (which simply means she dresses in a way that other women can appreciate and be inspired by) also a reason why she is featured on Fashionwidget often. I particularly love the way she had paired this easy breezy chiffon blouse with the skinny jean then balanced off with a rolled-up cuff blazer and peep-toe pumps to create a look that is appropriate enough to show up at your child’s school in or at a business meeting yet fascinating enough to land you a spot on the ever critical best dressed list.
