Bollywood Fashion: Katrina goes floral, Shilpa gets it right

The who’s who of Bollywood attended Sussanne Roshan’s The Charcoal Project launch on February 27.

While the guests checked out the imaginatively-designed, 14000-square-feet interior design store and its décor products, we checked out the fashion quotients of the Bollywood actors in attendance.

Hrithik Roshan, Jaya Bachchan, Pinky Roshan, Sussanne Roshan

Hrithik Roshan sports a smart jacket, Jaya Bachchan opts for a bright sari for a change, Pinky Roshan is too frilly and ruffly for us, while Susanne Roshan opts for the safety of black. What we like: Susanne’s eye makeup—smart way to add colour!


Karan Johar in his geeky glasses again! Wonder why wasn’t he wearing those in Koffee with Karan? And now that Mr Johar’s fitter than before, why not wear a sharper suit?


Katrina Kaif doesn’t bare much, keeps her hair natural, looks well… pretty!


Shilpa Shetty very, very rarely goes wrong in a body con dress. Liked her shoes—the tie-ups are the feet’s equivalent of bandage dresses!


Didn’t Shahid Kapoor just turn 30? Or was that 13? Dude, growing up means wearing clothes your age and going formal at an event where your industry peers and “seniors” are present.

Fashion News: Sabyasachi is Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week finale designer

Sabyasachi Mukherjee will be the grand finale designer at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) Autumn/Winter 2011. WIFW kicks off on April 6, 2011 and the grand finale will be held late night April 10.

Arguably Bollywood’s favourite designer (Rani Mukherjee and Vidya Balan are his diehard fans), Sabyasachi will also create an exclusive line for Wills Lifestyle that will be available at the brand’s stores across India.

Our request to Sabyasachi: We know you’re a design genius, but please please please, could you shock and awe us this season? We’ve got sore eyes from seeing your same ol’ designs at every wedding, sangeet and Bollywood event. Thanks already.

FYI, Tarun Tahiliani was the finale designer at the previous season of WIFW, with Shilpa Shetty as the showstopper. Here’s a peek to refresh your memory:
