Chic or Eeks? Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla at Cannes

Dear Mommy Aishwarya,

I’m happy you haven’t bowed down to the pressure of losing your post-pregnancy weight immediately after birth.

Aishwarya Rai Bachhan Cannes 2012

So while you can’t carry off a body-hugging evening gown (or more importantly, the snobbish designers won’t have samples in your size), at least choose an outfit that’s stylish and flatters you.

The gold work on this Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla outfit is a bit too jarring for me and the genteel folk at Cannes. You could have done with a lighter blouse  for instance.

Or how about trying on a looser silhouette- there are so many flattering designer dresses for heavier and curvier women. The A-line is always flattering.

Also, how can you wear an Indian  outfit and leave your ears bare? Earrings are the one accessory that pull an Indian ensemble together.

BTW, the makeup is gorgeous! Loved the eyes.

What do you think of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s ensemble at Cannes 2012?

Guess who wore a Rs 17 lakh sherwani?

Akshay Kumar!

While shooting for Master Chef India in Udaipur, Akshay Kumar donned this diamond- and pearl- studded sherwani by well-known designer Abu Jani. The outfit was selected by his fashionable wife Twinkle Khanna, who no doubt wanted Akshay to look like royalty when he met the king of Udaipur, Sriji Arvind Mewar during the shoot. (The episode was shot in his residential palace).

Here’s Akshay with the king:

Must say we’re dazzled by the sherwani and the crazy price tag!
