Gangland tales, all glammed up
A little less conversation, a little more action. Or so it was at the red carpet of the first HT Brunch Dialogues – Conversations With Indian Cinema, where the glitterati showed their often effortless and sometimes cultivated sense of style. As usual the women had a leg up over the men (literally) but the boys couldn’t be overlooked either. The fashionable knights of the evening were actor Prateik, who looked smashing in a monochrome black look, broken only by the sequinned joker print on his Armani T-shirt. Then there was John Abraham sticking to a crisp white shirt, strategically frayed blue jeans and unheeled black sneakers.
Not far behind was designer Narendra Kumar who looked dandy in an inky blue blazer, paired with scarlet pants, white T-shirt and tan lace-ups. But surprise, surprise! Manoj Bajpayee looked drop-dead-dishy in a Shantanu & Nikhil textured black bandhgala. (We couldn’t have wanted more!)
The ladies ensured that the evening was a Pink Crusade with many sporting it in several different shades. While model Dipannita Sharma looked creaselessly statuesque in a magenta Nachiket Barve one-shouldered creation, Amy Jackson contributed with an asymmetrical dress by Giovanni and spiked Christian Louboutin heels. And Konkana Sen Sharma took the ethnic route in a pink sari, a green blouse and a potli. Then there were the ladies in black like Kangana Ranaut who worked a tiny lace dress without a single accessory. Ekta Kapoor was in a beaded Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla sari (the extra small, toe-sticking shoes remained the same) and Aditi Rao Hydari looked classically cute in a ruffled black dress with nude slingbacks. Now, that’s what you call a red carpet success!
