It’s ironic that actor Richa Chadda was spotted at a fashion event, considering she seems to have no fashion sense herself.
Her dress looks like the lovechild of a train wreck and colour vomit, but she still managed to muster all her swag and pose like she knows what she is doing.
The hairdo looks like it was made in haste and not much attention was given to texture. The stylist also forgot to do something with her curly baby hair we can see along her forehead line. Ladies, always remember when you’re straightening your hair please do not forget to straighten the baby hair along the forehead line and in the side bun area. Either straighten it like a pro or just go unruly.
The Charge Sheet
The base looks uneven and patchy while her lipstick is just too glossy for hot and humid weather. The unnecessary gloss in her lipstick and her uneven foundation is making us want to wash her face with cucumber facewash and start over. Too much gloss and shine in the summer, especially in the day is a big no-no. Try to keep things dry and matte as much as you can. Opt for powder to soufflé foundations and replace the glosses with matte lipsticks to give a clean look to your face. Wear tea tree moisturiser in the day for that cool, minty and dry effect on your face.
If analysed separately, the blazer and the flowery skirt aren’t really all that bad. The skirt would look good with a plain white T-shirt and give the celebrity the right mix of east and west with a dash of gypsy. Instead, she chose to pair it with a matching tube top and made things worse by wearing a dull gold tailored jacket on it. What in the world…? We are sobbing at the misfortune of this gorgeous dull gold flower jacket that has been worn in the ugliest manner ever. The jacket could have looked stunning, if only she had worn it with a black tank top and black jeans.
Thank God, we can’t see them..
Wear it like
Printed lowers with gold jacket
If you are really adamant on wearing a gold jacket with printed lowers, here is one good way of making it work. The key difference between this model and our fashion disaster is that the jacket in this picture is not see-through. There is no way one can pull off a see-through gold jacket with such a busy tank top inside.
Gold jacket with black pants and black top
Once you get past her ‘come hither’ expressions, you will realise that she aced the gold jacket on black top exam. The model’s jacket is somewhat similar to what Richa is wearing but instead of pairing it with a desi skirt and choli, our model here wore it with a black top and jeans and totally grabbed our attention.
Printed skirt with plain tee
This is one of the greatest ways to make printed skirts look cool. We appreciate the fact that Richa was trying to stick to the eastern side of fashion but obviously lost balance and eventually our respect. Ladies, please know that if you’re going for the fusion look, please refrain from overdoing it. Pairing a printed skirt with a plain top is the right way to make east and west work.
