VOTE: India's WORST-DRESSED women!

     Next

Next

On November 15, we asked you to vote for the nation's most stylish fashionistas. Now take our poll on the worst-dressed!

It just goes to show you, all the money and fame in the world can't necessarily buy you a great sense of style!

In the following pages, we bring you ladies who make faux pas after faux pas with each red carpet appearance -- vote and let us know who you think fares the worst!

Mallika Sherawat

We start off with Miss Malli, who obviously misses the whole point of wearing clothes altogether -- they're meant to cover you up! But in her bid to show off her admittedly fab curves every single time, she ends up a disaster.

And on the rare occasions when she has tried to downplay the skinshow, it's downright hilarious -- but here we'll just let the pic do the talking!

Rani Mukherjee

For awhile there, we thought Rani was upping her game in the style stakes. But it didn't last too long and she's back to doing what she does best -- frumpy, off-trend and predictable.

Queenie's penchant for all things designer is well-known. But if she'd get off the bling-thing, tight-fitting wagon, she'd be doing herself a favour.

Groan. This one's beyond help -- for Rakhi, any skimpy outfit that screams of poor taste is a hot favourite. And that's just the way she likes it!

Vidya Balan

Poor Vidya -- she's been dissed for her style so long, she's left with just one. Sabyasachi saris. And sometimes, even those go awry, as you can plainly see!

Avanti Birla

No sympathy for you, Avanti! It's time to dress the part of a classy, wealthy businessman's wife, instead of an eccentric teenager. But wait -- the wealthy businessman's wardrobe needs help first!

Prachi seems to have a hard time putting it all together -- either it's the outfit that's outdated, or the accessories, or both. Time to page a stylist, dear -- you've got enough well-dressed competition to care!

Another beauty in love with bling -- Urmila sometimes has us reaching for glares. It's called 'making a statement', so take your cue from that instead of having your ensembles shouting from the rooftops!

Come to think of it, we've never seen this starlet in anything that's half-decent. Are you listening, Kash? Oh, wait, she's not -- another wardrobe that yells out too loud!

Didi is not expected to be red-carpet ready. But keeping your hair neat, draping a sari well, ensuring it's not crumpled and selecting appropriate footwear instead of rubber chappals is expected of the nation's leaders!

She's got killer curves alright -- but Zarine's sense of style is also killing us. Since her looks take after Kat, maybe her clothes should too!

Ameesha is mad about brands -- but it hardly shows. Mainly because her choices are always wrong! Time to move in the direction of unique and show-stopping, instead of skin-showing!

The same goes for this light-eyed B-Town cutie. Maybe Celina and Ameesha are in a contest to see who can dress tackier and flash more flesh while they're at it!

A veteran designer -- in love with semi-sheer leggings, worn under frumpy frock after frumpy frock. We just don't get it, Neeta. Why?

When Mads dons ethnicwear, she's a vision -- but when she goes Western, we want to turn away. Up the ante, ma'am, because you're back in Bollywood!

Sigh. Another huge talent -- who believes in even huger clothes! Kads needs to exploit her appeal, but she murders it with her voluminous red carpet choices.

Bips either looks ancient when she's channelling old-world glam (like this blah red gown), or then takes it over the top with cut-away clothes that spell t-a-c-k-y.

She tried sati savitri style, it didn't work. Then came the fiery femme fatale bit and that didn't work either. You know what will, Amrita -- an introduction to world fashion. Open up a magazine already!

And finally, we have the CM of UP, who seems to be the only lady in the world with a closetfull of the same outfit in a host of blah colours -- a potato sack salwar kameez. And she has got to stop wearing socks inside of her slippers! We firmly disbelieve the rumour that she sent a jet to Mumbai to collect footwear for her -- we're yet to see a sign of it!
