Stunningly ... Awful.

Gul is always reliable for a fashion flub or ten. She arrived at the launch of Anita Dongre's LivaViscose Collection at Phoenix Mills in Lower Parel rocking a pair of aviators. The shades were the only positive in her entire look. She's gone the way of SRK by pairing a scarf over her too short, midriff-baring tank, which, by the way, tells us she's "sexy" since her appearance itself says nothing of the sort. You know how I feel about acid wash jeans and to what decade they actually belong. The ultra low rise creates the unflattering illusion of short legs and a disproportionately long torso. Don't even get me started on her silver sneaks.The Match Patrol had a busy afternoon at this event. Sambhavana Seth wore what is actually probably a beach cover up as a top over denims. I'm not a fan of the halter here as it's too cas in the baby pink color, but I'm absolutely perplexed by the asymetrical hemline. For a top, the hem is like a foot too long. She paired her outfit with an all-too-matchtastic pink Guess croc bag with white and hot pink piping. I do like that she wore her hair naturally curly to the event - it's a welcome change amid the sea of blow outs. But the light pink eye shadow? Really? Overall, this look is too Pepto Bismol for me.While I actually like Isha's bright, summery AND by Anita Dongre dress, she's gone ahead and ruined it with a case of Extreme Matching with accessories that don't gel with the cas vibe of the dress. You've already noted Isha's odd white-rimmed shades above. Add to that her white watch, white bag and those cringeworthy white sandals and what do you have? A reverse sunny side up egg. Mad citations for this one! I can't really say which is a bigger crime, Extreme Matching or overall schlubbiness a la Gul. Any thoughts?By comparison to these girls, Neetu fared markedly better. Of course, she is seen here posing next to Gul, so take it for what it's worth. I like the color and ruching detail of her dress which is also an Anita Dongre creation. Plus, the length is very ladylike which is a nice bonus. She went minimalist with her hair, makeup and thankgod, her accessories. While I'm not a fan of her white strappy sandals, at least she made a bold choice of a color that "goes with" her outfit rather than matching her outfit. Any neutral shade like white, black or tan would look excellent here.
