So Not: Kate Middleton in a knee-length Issa dress
Wow factor: The length, it adds to the elegance.
Shweta Nanda dressed up in a floor-length vivid red Issa gown on a recently-aired episode of Koffee with Karan, where she appeared with dad Amitabh Bachchan. And she looked lovely in it. The colour, a pure red, complemented her dusky skin and was appropriate talk show wear for the daughter in law of on of India's most prominent business families. It brought Tinseltown glam to the talk show.
Ouch Factor: A lack of glam, especially for a princess-in-waiting.
Sure, the Issa dress is pretty. But should a princess-in-waiting wear it to her first official outing? Kate aka Catherine Middleton chose to play it safe when she picked the simple Issa dress for her engagement announcement. It even matched her sapphire and diamond engagement ring. Let's hope Kate learns to take more fashion risks, like her fiancé's mother, Princess Diana did.
