Poor Katrina Kaif. Even at the top of her game, with everything going for her, the only news we seem to hear about her these days is bad news. With our morning tabloid came trash-talk about how she is squabbling with boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor, only weeks after he allowed cousin Kareena to tease him about his impending marriage to Kat on national television. While that falls in the realm of conjecture, with no quotes to support the story, the attack on Katrina’s latest fashion foible is harder to ignore. At a function for police personnel held in Mumbai on January 18, Kaif wore Cavalli as she shimmied for an appreciate audience. While it all sounds amazing — how can a world renowned designer like Roberto Cavalli and an A-list actress make for a bad combination? — the reception Kat got from fashion critics was cold. And we’re putting it mildly. Too tight, too boring and not to mention tasteless, shouted naysayers, while critiquing Kat’s choice of clothing. No one offered her the generosity of accepting the colour worked and the deliberate lack of accessorizing was appreciable as well. Love it or hate it, you just couldn’t ignore Kat’s Cavalli gown. Not even in Italy did it miss being mentioned, with the Roberto Cavalli Press Office at Piazza San Babila in Milan putting its PR machinery into overdrive to announce that Katrina had stepped out in one of their eye-catching emerald creations. So, is this a case of gown gone wrong or green-with-envy gossip? We’ll let you decide.
