The Highway actor recently said on Koffee with Karan that the Ishaqzaade heroine needed a little help when it comes to her fashion statements…

A few days ago Alia Bhatt gave a piece of advice to rival actor Parineeti Chopra on Koffee with Karan 4. The Student Of The Year star made a snide remark when Karan Johar asked

whom she would gift a style guide to. Alia did try hard to be polite, apologised and then blurted, “I do not want to offend anyone, but Parineeti Chopra needs help with her fashion sense.” And we totally agree with the petite beauty. We loved how Pari promptly agreed with Alia’s suggestion and responded with: “So true, I need them (styling tips). I’m learning and getting better, though.”

We totally love Parineeti for being spunky with her roles – she’s fab, makes magic on the big screen and becomes her character with utmost sincerity, However, we really wish that the Shuddh Desi Romance actor would take styling tips from her cousin Priyanka Chopra. While the Exotic babe is a fashionista and gets it spot on perfect almost every time, Pari tries to plays safe and yet fails, especially when it comes to colours, patterns and cuts – sometimes they are plain boring; other times, they crash disastrously. We bet you will agree with us after looking at a few of Parineeti’s recent appearances…

Black magic: So we know that black is the colour for a not so fragile looking Ms Chopra, but hey, you cannot go wrong with it, hai na? The actor has work black often, and even though the colour works wonderfully on most people, it fails to cast its magic on PeeCee’s cousin. Whether it;s is the horribly creased netted satin black high-slit gown or the black jumpsuit teamed with red peep toes and scarlet lips, neither sizzled, both fizzled. Pari’s look was way too drab for her bubbly personality!

Desi gal: The Hasee Toh Phasee actor chose a Sabyasachi Mukherji creation for an awards function in early 2013, and we must say we wanted to hide our cameras before a bad picture could be taken. The full flowy skirt and that embellished headband totalled a strict no-no!

Little black disaster: Wethinks Pari-baby better avoid wearing LBDs, at least until she learns to manage one; she just cannot stand or sit pro’pah’ly. Remember when she appeared on a popular comedy show to promote her film Shuddh Desi Romance? She looked quite uncomfortable and kept pulling her dress down to cover her lady-bits, but occasionally failed at that too!

Getting it right: One time this Chopra babe impressed us with her fashionable avatar was at the IIFA awards. The Ishaqzaade actor looked gorgeous in a black Nikhil Thampi off-shoulder gown. Her cazh hairdo and scarlet red lips earned her brownie points.
