At the premiere of the film Blood Ties, Ash wore a full-sleeved, intricately embroidered anarkali which swamped her figure - an outfit just a shade less frumpy than the cream chikankari sari and embroidered jacket that we so hated last year.
Unlike the Elie Saab dress and Saint Laurent shirt-Zac Posen skirt she wore on day one, the Abu-Sandeep anarkali added kilos to her silhouette and created zero impact on a high voltage red carpet attended by French actress Marion Cotillard in black, white and yellow Dior and American star Zoe Saldanha in blue-grey lace Valentino.
When will Aishwarya learn to leave Abu-Sandeep to grace mom-in-law Jaya Bachchan's closet? Stick to Elie Saab and Sabyasachi, Ash.
Meanwhile, jury member Vidya Balan continued her series of sari embarrassments in red print, a red long-sleeved blouse, white beads and a white bag.
Between Ash and Vidya, it's hard to decide who looked worse. We're looking to Sonam Kapoor now to resurrect the Indian fashion flag.
