Today, I am going to showcase what probably has been understated to our eyes. We might not consider her as one of our style Icons here in the Industry, but in the case of decoding it, she really is!
I am talking about the unconventional Kalki Koechlin. She always has been unconventional and she always will be. Be it her choice of film roles or her marriage to Anurag Kashyap, her choice of trousseau or her appearances. I am sure, you all would have noticed it in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara! I became her fan when I got this opportunity to read her writing columns in HT City. She is sweet, docile and witty as well!
So, let me decode her sense of fashion style in her recent shows.
1. Cannes Film Festival 2012: When we think about it, We probably be thinking Aishwarya Rai, Sonam Kapoor or more recently, Frieda Pinto. (Should I really want to mention about Mallika Sherawat? Anybody, up here for her?) But, true to my surprise, Kalki managed to draw good eye balls in her appearance. In one of the events, she was seen in a lehenga, beautifully adorned by Sabyasachi. And when we say Sabyasachi, we are surely not going to miss out the elegant golden work he always does with a nude appearance style. The net lehenga style saree is well complemented by the clutch she is carrying with her hair left loose. Although, I am not much in favour of the headband she is wearing!
In the other event, she was seen wearing a very statement piece by Christian Dior. Her hair are awesomely done, with a few strands graciously multiplying the elegance of her face. Her smile adds to her persona. The color of the gown is equally good. She keeps the funda of one statement piece at a time handy, and that is eveident by her oversized clutch. However, again, I am not very fond of the neck accessory she is wearing.
2. IIFA 2012: Whoa, she is back! She is seen with a Victoria Beckham Casual Gown in Fuschia. I like this color a lot personally! Kalki’s hairdresser clearly understands, owing to her sleeky face, her hair are supposed to be volume, and let loose over her face in layers. Full marks to the makeup done as well. Her lips are matte and intelligently painted. I do not really like super pouty or ultra glossy or “bleeding” looking ones.
3. Blender’s Pride Fashion Tour 2011: Kalki walked the ramp in Gavin Miguel attire. She really dared to try this. Considering her “size 0” figure, carrying this off literally meat some guts. I love her makeup her. Satiny finish with a radiant look. Her gown, of course without those extensions, is one beautiful piece. The blend of off white, beige and blue are creatively done.
4. India International Jewellery Week 2011: She was seen her with a lot of other celebrities. Now, I am very sure, Kalki does not really know how to do a catwalk, but ofcourse, I would not want to miss to highlight the radiance she carries off. The attire is off white, complete with lace work, and her look adorned with pearl jewellery. Her sweet presence adds to the whole look. This creates an interesting look. But, there must be good ways to get this draped.
So, this was it my buddies! I am on to notice her carefully in her future show-ups. But, one thing is for sure, with a 5 7’’ height, she really needs to either gain wait or get a good bosom!!
