Get the look: Bold in gold

When Deepika Padukone wears something as bold as this number, you can’t help but admire the woman’s guts.


August 10, 2012

When someone as stunning as Deepika Padukone wears something as bold as this Dolce and Gabbana number to the Vogue Beauty Awards, you can’t help but admire the woman’s guts. The actor did not only manage to rock a daring look on the red carpet, she also bagged the night’s Best Dressed Award.

Hair

Deepika stuck to the phrase ‘sensuality of an Indian goddess’ and kept things dusky. She chose to emphasise her brown eyes by outlining them with black eyeliner and keeping her eyelashes dramatic with fake lashes as well as heavy mascara. The key player in this look, however, is the bronzer. Get your hands on a Bobbi Brown or Mac bronzer and evenly spread it on your face. Just add a tinge of mauve blush to avoid looking like a metal statue.

Outfit

Padukone glammed it up in a figure-hugging Dolce & Gabbanna strapless black and gold ensemble. You can find a similar, slightly shorter skirt at Mantra (around Rs3,000) and a black bodice at Debenhams (Rs3,000).

Accessories

She accessorised her ensemble with a black clutch and gold cuffs. You can find similar  pieces at Accessorize (Rs2,000).

Shoes

You can find something like Deepika’s black peep-toes at Charles & Keith (around Rs6,000).
