The ugly: Neha Dhupia at a fashion event
OURTAKE: Trying to pull off tattered boyfriend jeans and that jacket at the same time backfired for Neha. There’s too much going on, and even the safe black accessories don’t help tone down the look.
The bad: Sai Tamhankar at an awards event
OURTAKE: The Marathi actor’s gown has an awkward torso portion that makes her look boxy. It’s a pity, because the colour looks great on her. We’d have loved to see a well-draped upper half, just like the bottom.
The good: Shraddha Kapoor at a film event
OURTAKE: The young actor looks cute in her short, fitted dress. The blue shoes, which complement the pattern on her outfit, are a great choice.
The good: Kangana Ranaut at a film screening and Deepika Padukone at a film promotional
OURTAKE: Both took a casual approach, and we love how simple their looks are. While Deepika's look is an expected one, Kangana made hers unusual by leaving behind her signature structured bag and tying her hair back.
The bad: Diandra Soares at a fashion event on August 20
OURTAKE: The model looks like she threw on a nightie to cover up a ramp outfit.
Most of us take our fashion cues from what celebs wear. But do they always get it right? This weekly column puts their looks under the scanner.
The bad: Ileana D’Cruz at a film screening; Shraddha Kapoor at a film event | OURTAKE: Ileana’s whole ensemble is badly put together; On the other hand, Shraddha’s makeup and shoes are perfect, but that dress looks like a tacky mix of leftover lace and printed material.

The ugly: Kareena Kapoor Khan at a film event. | OURTAKE: If you manage to get over the tacky blouse, you’d notice that even the drape of Kareena’s sari is a sloppy mess.
The bad: Vidya Balan at a promotional event. | OURTAKE: The three-shades-too-light foundation isn’t the only thing Vidya needs to get rid of. The stylist, who’s clearly inspired by Bunty Aur Babli, should top that list.
The ugly: Sonakshi Sinha at the trailer launch of a film on April 2 | OURTAKE: Looks like Sonakshi got carried away by the kiddie theme of the film and decided to dress like one herself. Adding those boots makes her look more silly than edgy.
The good: Ileana D’Cruz on the sets of a reality show on March 25 and Kangana Ranaut at an event on March 26 | OURTAKE: Kangana’s the girl of the moment, with everything going her way. She’s even making an otherwise-tacky bandage dress look this good! This casual, not-too-accessorised look is just right for summer, and Ileana nails it.
