Oh I See

19 Feb


By this point, she’s just fucking with us, isn’t she?

Or else she ran over Ritu Beri’s dog, spilled ink on her gazillion dollar Persian carpet and stole her boyfriend. Animosity of this sort (not content with the above, she also wanted Vidya to wear crystal eyelashes) argues one seriously pissed off lady.

    lol Poor Vidya Balan! Inspite of the utterly ridiculous outfit, I still think Vidya looks cute. Ritu Beri, you aint succeeding, so GIVE UP and let the poor woman have a nice wardrobe.

    *puts on Antaryami hat*

    Well clearly, Vidya did something very paapi to Ritu in her previous janm. So now Ritu is taking badla. It is the Karmic cycle, you see.

    *nods sagely*

    Seriously though, do designers not recognize a short torso when they see one? Doesn’t say much about Ritu Beri’s ability in this case…I can actually see someone like Bipasha or Sonam (taller, not as curvy, and proportionate torsos) look rather regal (OK OK, regally mourning, but still) in this….

    Wasn’t RB responsible for the horrible clothing worn by the Indian athletes at the Olympic opening parade?
    Just seems to underline my opinion that in Delhi, anything expensive is automatically considered good! 😀 😀

    She also kinda reminds me of the various bedouins in Bollywood films like Helen’s acid green outfit in the Mehbooba song (Sholay). The jingly jangly stuff at the ‘kamra’, and the weird bell sleeve thing is same, no?

    I have seen the dress before. i think ash wore it in khakee dil dooba song(where ash looked good)/some one wore it in that mvoie josh.(someone did not look good)

    And love M’s comment above. Unless, ppl have mannequin type body they cant wear designer stuff, what good is the designer then.

    OH MY GOD! In shrieking ‘Janice’ voice.

    Ritu Beri and Vidya Balan are both mad. Poor Vidya does need a concerned, sensible designer, who can work with her good points. And she needs to stop being so desperate to appear glamorous.

    Vidya must have been one papini in a previous life or leads an alter identity of dog-killing-bf-stealing super biatch in this one..why else is the entire designer fraternity up in arms(shreds??) against her…

    Really what were they thinking???

    Oh my God. Vidya, call me, honey.

    Would someone please give this woman a real stylist who actually wants more than a curvy-shaped hanger for clothes designs that no one (but Vidya!) will wear?

    I don’t know if she did anything to Ritu Beri’s dog on her Persian carpet with the boyfriend involved in some capacity (okay, you can stop visualizing RIGHT NOW), coz it’s not like the rest of the world has figured out how to dress this woman up nice.

    So the other plausible theories are:

    * She got piss drunk one night, watched The Devil Wears Prada and Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic back to back, passed out on the couch, woke up the next morning with a killer hangover and decided that she wanted to be a good girl and go to heaven.

    * There’s a “Crash Test Dummies for Designers” gene, and only she and one third of the people attending the Grammies every year have it.

    * Her fairy Godmother is a drag queen. (Frankly, she’d look better dressed up in a pumpkin. At least the PETA folks would love her for it.)

    I vote for all three. (After one of my hard disks crashed recently, I’m a big believer in backups.)

    To be fair, I did like how she looked in Parineeta. I don’t think the movie was anything to write home about (neither of Pradeep Sarkar’s movies have worked for me), but she looked wonderful. Maybe it’s because you can’t go far wrong in a period costume.

    You know what they say about karma… it always comes back to mess up your wardrobe 😉

    See: my grandmother was right after all! All women look good in Saris! 🙂 I think VB is one of those women who look good only in a fairly limited range of clothing styles…but suffers from wanting to be seen as up and coming…(probably!)

    I must say I ADORE Ramsu’s theories…they make perfect sense, and yes, as another one beset by a crashing computer, Backups are crucial!

    BV – From the neck up, she’s lovely (and bhagwan bhala kare she didn’t go for the crystal lashes). From the neck down is another matter entirely.

    Pitu – the difference between Helen and Vidya here is that Vidya looks like Helen’s daimaa.

    M – short torso?! That’s what you took away from this? Someone even with Ash’s height and figure would look like a hag in this. And besides, RB is an indian designer who makes clothes for Indian women with too much money, which means she MUST be styling for er, short torsoed women. Have you seen some of those Punjabi ladies in Delhi? 😀 price tag = teh good, yes. If only she could stick to sarees.
    And yes, she’s the one who designed those things and she’s gonna design again for the Commonwealth. She’s gonna design EVERYTHING. Between her and Manish Malhotra designing those neon outfits for ICL, those poor athletes want to know what they did in their past life!

    [paging antaryami Pitu]

    Sachita – what good is the designer? Good for laughs of course! 😀 But Ash’s dress was a Spanish flamenco style outfit, this is some Lehenga of Despair.

    Banno – I know she has some good points because, as Ramsu points out, I saw them in Parineeta. But as the years pass it’s becoming increasingly hard to remember them. 😦

    WSW – papini 😀 I just don’t understand it.

    Ajnabi – if only she would call you! If only she would call SOMEONE other than her stylist.

    Ramsu – I personally blame Amitabh Bachchan. Apparently he once made the mistake of saying namaste to her rather than saying, hey baby how’s tricks when he bumped into her somewhere and she instantly got afraid that she was getting the behenji tag. And voila! these messes.
    However, I like your theories better. I vote for 2, 3 and I in that order.

    Amey – Wht Vidya taught Me…”

    What rock are you living under? 🙂 No designer, Indian or otherwise, makes clothes for “normal” women…and yes, VB is a normal body type for Indian women…
    M (who’s having flashbacks of all of Jaya Bachchan’s ‘orrible outfits…..isn’t Abu Jani her chosen torturer, er. designer? – ‘nother normal woman suffering for her sins…)

    Good theory. It’s actually “Heyy Babyy, how’s tricks?” but I’m not inclined to quibble 🙂

    I wouldn’t blame AB (Sr or Jr) so quickly. One of them said something similar to Rani once and she got a leather shoes, blindfold and a whip. (Got the reference?)

    M – naheeen! Yeh jhoot hai! Actually, no, you’re right, but at least some designers try for normal women, it’s just that their conception of normal women is somehow dowdy – like Issac Mizrahi and Liz Claire (or should I say Tim Gunn?) and Donna Karan. Oh and Laura Ashley. How could I forget Laura Ashley?

    Rramssu – Good 😀

    Amey – I’ve said alvida to all that.

    February 23, 2009 at 11:33 am

    Why? Didn’t AB say “heyy babyy” to you?

    What the heck is she wearing. It looks like a Flamenco outfit on drugs or something. Or a whale.
