Remember a few years ago when the movie Bunty& Bubli came out and everyone was obsessed with Rani Mukherjee's clothes!?? That movie had influenced Pakistani fashion in such a big way from the sleeves (cuffed quarter sleeves), shalwaar to the length of the shirts, oh and how can I forget the neck line? I specifically remember my darzi telling me that everyone was asking for the turned neck line (or whatever you call it) that Rani was seen wearing in the posters and movie itself. There have been various other Bollywood films that have influenced trends in Pakistan as well over the years.
The other day I was watching an item song Kareena and Salman did for their new movie 'Bodyguard' on YouTube and I was horrified at the clothes she was wearing. Kareena always has the most stunning make-up and clothes in all her films, but in this particular song she commits one faux pas after another.
I just couldn't help but worry if her look in 'Desi Beat's' will influence our fashion scene. Short shirts are coming back, but I hope they don't get this short. I don't even know where to begin on the colour combination of her clothes (blue,silver, pink and cream all in one outfit??:s) . Who designed her clothes? Doesn't she always hire Manish Malhotra?
Don't get me wrong she is stunning and and she wears the most breathtaking saris. One of my favourite costumes Kareena has ever worn is the black and gold lehnga she wears at the end of 'Falak pay chal'. I <3 it in a big way. I also love the blue and white one she wears in the beginning. I love the contrast they did with the yellow duppatta over it.
So what is your take on 'Desi Beats'? Are you in love with Kareena's non-fashionable moment? Are you some one who is going to be influenced by it or will you stay away from it?
