Aishwarya vs Mallika Oscar Smackdown

Last year at the Cannes film festival, who would have thought that Mallika Sherawat would have been Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s biggest red carpet nemesis? There was no escaping the Hisss star, who when not parading around the Croisette with a 220lb python was wearing frothy layers of Dolce & Gabbana or posting pics of her new bestie Salma Hayek.

So it was probably with more than a little perturbation that Mrs. Rai Bachchan realised she would have to face her again at the Oscars held last night in Los Angeles (anyone else wondering how Sherawat wangled an invite?). Again, while there’s nothing technically wrong with Ash’s outfit—it is Armani Privé—we’re always a bit underwhelmed by how stylists tend to underplay her curves. We’re also not loving this brownish-bronze shade, which shimmery though it is, is probably one of the last colours we’d have chosen for Rai Bachchan when she has a whole sea of Hollywood A-listers to compete with. Sherawat, on the other hand, went for the right colour, and strange double shoulder strap notwithstanding, actually looked pretty good. Though she could have pulled back her hair for something a tad more elegant; it is the Oscars after all. This round, we call a tie.

    Aish looking dhol she has to work on her body neither people though her like garbage.

  3. To us, Mallika looked absolutely fab neck up…her earrings and her face. As much as we do agree that she picked a better colour than Aishwarya, we aren’t fans of the slit or the dress in general. Ash by default wins our vote for the outfit but neck up – completely plastic. Or is it just our opinion?!
