It's not often that Aishwarya Rai and Gauri Khan find themselves in direct competition. After all, Aishwarya is a global mega star and heroine of some of Bollywood's most iconic films, and Gauri Khan is, well, a housewife.
But owing to this weekend's big Bachchan birthday blowout, they've both found themselves on a variety of best-dressed lists. So which of these ladies looked the best on the red carpet?
Gauri: Cheap, Tacky "Style"
For some reason Gauri Khan is constantly held up as a style icon. Maybe she's had some good days, but her appearance at Amitabh Bachchan's birthday celebration wasn't one of them. Her one-shouldered leopard print dress/jumper looked like something someone's crazy grandmother would wear for "formal night" on a Caribbean cruise. Her big hair turned the look into something straight out of the '80s.
Aishwarya: Elegant But Boring
Aishwarya's been a bit off her style game this year as she's struggled with a bit of stubborn baby weight, preferring voluminous suits which hide her figure to her sexier pre-pregnancy looks. She showed off a slimmer waistline this weekend but stuck to her tired standard of Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla. While the cut of her cream-colored suit was flattering, the color bored. It was still heads and shoulders above Gauri's look, though.
And the winner is...
So who wins the style award this week? The fashion media got it right when they skipped over Gauri and Aishwarya completely and lauded the simple beauty of Chitrangada Singh's blue-green gown. Chitrangada's appearance at the launch of this month's Women's Health magazine cover was absolutely perfect: fresh, sophisticated, and breathtaking.
