The Fanaa actor looks beautiful in photoshoots. But if only we could say the same about her appearances at events

In the past few months, each time we saw Kajol on the cover of a popular glossy, we were beyond impressed. She looked like a yummy mummy and oh-so-tempting that it’s been difficult for us to pull our eyes off her. But this aura is kinda limited to her covershoots. So we started wondering why!

Then we realised that while posing for magazines, Kajol generally gives close-up shots so the entire focus is on her face and barely ever on her body. But maybe that’s not it. Kajol was never a size zero actor and yet she has always been loved on the big screen, more so for her girl-next-door looks and sexy curves. Then why does she wear unflattering clothes, we wonder. Here’s a look at her appearances that left us befuddled.

Recently, at the launch of a popular label, Kajol walked in a V-necked printed maxi and she had let her hair down in loose summer curls. No comments from our end. At a wedding ceremony, Kajol was seen in a Rabani and Rakha saree. Not only was her saree gaudy but even the accessories were so blingy that we were blinded by this look! At an awards function earlier this year, Kajol had chosen a Nandita Mahtani printed off-shouldered gown. She looked beautiful, no doubt. But it wasn’t much of a red carpet appearance, honestly.

We aren’t done yet. Kajol had stepped out in a Purvi Doshi outfit at a Kochadaiiyaan event. While we loved the bottoms and even the cut-out top, they certainly weren’t meant to be paired together. On one occasion, the DDLJ actor was seen in a shirt dress by Anushka Khanna but it don’t work wonders for her curves, given to its size and fabric. And the mother of all disasters was when we spotted Kajol at FICCI Frames 2014. She had stepped out in a Prabal Gurung pink dress. The dress would have looked nicer sans the off-shoulder bows. The dress would have looked much more graceful otherwise. Don’t you agree?

Well, there are many more such disastrous appearances by Kajol but on some occasions she has managed to please us too. During an awards function, Kajol was spotted in a Shantanu and Nikhil gown and boy, she looked so radiant that we were left speechless. Elegance personified, we must say! At a Mother’s Day event, this yummy mummy chose Payal Pratap separates with a skinny belt around the waist. She looked drop-dead gorgeous in this one….

So if only Kajol could dress like this more often. Or maybe be inspired from her photoshoots coz we know that she’s not just a pretty face. She could draw a leaf out of Sonakshi Sinha and Vidya Balan’s books and flaunt her curves with pride. What say, BollywoodLifers?
