Ekta Kapoor has been paying close attention to her clothes lately, but there are still no signs of her ditching those notorious platform chappals
As 2010 turned 2011, producer Ekta Kapoor changed out of her gym clothes into flattering dresses and maxis. It wouldn't be Ekta without multiple religious bracelets and the smudged tika, but the new clothes are bringing out a flattering feminine side we like. Next step: Getting rid of those black cross-band platform sandals she seems to have had in utero.
Kyunki kaftan This kaftan dress, by designer Malini Ramani, started it all. All of a sudden, Ekta had a waist and legs and she no longer looked like a tired school-run mom. The hint of the tika is still there and she lead us on with a change in footwear. Not fair, Ekta.
Starting problems Ekta came upon the loose silhouette and stuck to it. Though the colour is too dull, and the hair could be better, it really flatters her curves more than a few shift dresses she's been seen about in. The bling could be turned down, however, which she did as her relationship with the maxi grew closer.
Maximum maxi This one-shoulder maxi by Malini again sure is flattering, and knows that - she's gone out and bought one in every colour variation. Our vote goes for the pink version that lights her up. She wears them well too, with minimum accessories and a fresh face. And the platforms are back.
Bullseye She really hit the nail with this Ramani - gorgeous colour, the right amount of sexiness, with subtle support for her assets. We'd tell her to get one in every colour, but she's probably done that anyway. We're imagining this with nude peep-toes instead of the co-ordinated fugly platforms; and a sight more make-up - a bit of blush and gloss would be enough.
