Cannes Fashion Alert: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan Silences Her Critics by Flaunting Her Curvy Figure in Elie Saab at the Cosmopolis Premiere

Cannes Fashion Alert: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan Silences Her Critics by Flaunting Her Curvy Figure in Elie Saab at the Cosmopolis Premiere

In Elie Saab, sincerely a stunner, Aishwarya.

In the modified words of American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift…”One day, she’ll be strutting it on the red carpet and all you’re ever gonna be is mean…why you gotta be so mean?”

That was for all the sad netizens* of the world whose negative words caused this woman to be a number one trending topic last week, all because she gained a few pounds to bring another life into the world six months ago.

Our insane addiction to rail thin figures and unrealistic beauty ideals needs to come to a sreeching halt when we see others embrace the skin they are in. Most especially when the majority of people hiding behind anonymity of the internet will never achieve such ideals and are most likely in worse off shape than the people or person they are focusing their negative energy on.

Fashion Query: Kim Kardashian – What Was She Thinking???

HOUNDSTOOTH FAIL?

After excelling herself so well this week with her New York City Sidewalk Style, what could Kim Kardashian have been thinking by donning this over-the-top ghastly looking houndstooth poncho ensemble? It looks like maternity wear gone awry? Is Kim K trying to fan the flames of  a ‘pregnancy rumour’ ahead of the tabloids? She topped off her look with a charcoal birkin and black Christian Louboutin knee-high heels but any way you slice it, this look is still a no.
