Fashion Police: Sloppy (not so) chic

Kiran Rao arrived at the press meet of Ship of Theseus in Mumbai, looking like a fashion disaster.

July 24, 2013

Dhobi Ghat film-maker Kiran Rao may be the wife of Bollywood’s Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan, but it seems like she almost never cares about what she wears. She arrived at the press meet of Ship of Theseus in Mumbai, looking like a fashion disaster. Here is what she did wrong:

The charge sheet


We’re really curious to know why Kiran wore this hair at a press meet, where a big turnover of paparazzi and journalists were expected. It seems like she’s balancing a bird’s nest on top of her head.


For Kiran, we are guessing washing her face is enough. Her washed-out face and the oil shine on the T-zone looks messy. Is that lip balm, Ms film-maker? If Kiran wanted the no-make-up look, then she should have gone for a nude lip colour and rouged her cheeks a little. Her face looks lifeless without make-up.

Accessories & Shoes

She wore silver disk earrings, black wayfarers and a chunky silver bracelet. Except for her specs, nothing else looks good. Kiran paired her tights with a pair of chappals which looked drab. A nice pair of black pumps would have been her saving grace.


Okay, we understand that ‘artists’ have a quirky dress sense, but that doesn’t mean you throw on whatever you can get your hands on. While this olive green silk jacket might have looked lovely paired with something else, not ironing it and pairing it with these clothes is a disaster.

Underneath her jacket, she’s wearing a black, sorry excuse for a tunic, paired with black-and-white geometric print tights. Her ensemble is the best example of good separates paired together in the worst possible form.


What we can’t seem to digest are those cobweb-inspired sandals. With all the beautiful flip flops and slippers available, why would one ever opt for these?

Bail out!

Kristen Stewart

Maybe Kiran should take tips from Twilight star Kristen Stewart, who knows the right recipe of pairing a jacket with print pants. She looks fab!

Cara Delevingne

Model Cara Delevingne looks smoking hot in this olive military jacket. She paired it with the right shades — white and black. Her leather pants are a stunner!

Kate Beckinsale

Actor Kate looked uber chic and trendy in this casual attire comprising plain black tank top and black-and-white print pants.
