Surabhi Chauhan
New Delhi, December 31, 2010
Is it the touch of King Midas that has turned the tinsel town ladies vouching for golden looks this winter? Actor Olivia Wilde, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra and Eva Mendes glitter in various styles of dresses in different parts of the world to make our list of the Golden Girls. Gold is a metallic shade with a tinge of colour yellow that glows when light falls on it. It therefore makes good sense for the glitterati pack to don this colour in front of the flashing cameras and sparkle in the limelight. We ask a panel of fashion experts - stylist Nidhi Jacob, editor for Grazia India, Mehernaaz Dhondy and designer Raakesh Agarvwal, guide us to invest in the perfect golden look of this season.

Mehernaaz [5/10]
“Eva has the body you want to see. The dress is a bit ill-fitting and does not compliment her body type.”

Nidhi Jacob [6/10]
“Love the colour, the golden yellowness of it, especially on her. I would’ve however, done away with the jarring cocktail ring and added a cluster of varied bracelets.”

Raakesh  [5/10]
“Eva is fab, but this look is a disaster. Is she trying to hide a baby bump? I do like the ruby ring & minimal makeup.”

Mehernaaz [8/10]
“She is living the return-to-disco-glamourous trend. Party-season perfect.”

Nidhi Jacob [4/10]
“I admire her courage to step out in that sheet of sequins. Love the Studio-54 vibe. The gold clutch is so unnecessary! A matte leather one would’ve worked better.”

Raakesh [5/10]
“She is looking like a gold tart — bad makeup, too much of matching gold accessories, ill fitting sleeves. I think this much of gold is kind of drowning her and a bit of skin is needed here.”

Mehernaaz [7/10]
“Pretty, lady-like, Katrina has worked hard on her body and it shows! I wish she would experiment with her hair.”

Nidhi Jacob [4/10]
“I like the black hem to the full skirt, but the sash on the waist makes it a tad too young. Also I’d replace the predictable peep-toes with high-heeled brogues.”

Raakesh Agarvwal [6/10]
“I think Kat has taken the entire barbie doll image too seriously. A simple body-con gold dress would have been much nicer.

Mehernaaz [7/10]
“Nice sari, though “desi girlish”, she works it well. Not so mad about the hair. A messy up-do perhaps?”

Nidhi Jacob [6/10]
“Love the nude hue and the fact that it is not a run-of-the-mill saree. However, the hemline is dragging on the floor; It’s a case of invisible feet!”

Raakesh [8/10]
“Love most of the look: the lip colour, the shade of the gold and the style of the saree with prepleated pallu. Just a change
in the hair-do and earrings could have gotten her a 10/10.
