What’s with those hideous slippers, Ash?

At the Bachchans’ press meet recently, the media turned up in hordes waiting to get a glimpse of the mother and the baby. But while Beti B was nowhere in sight, new mum Aishwarya Rai Bachchan did say a sweet and desi ‘namaste’ to the waiting crowd. She may be pretty grace personified, but why oh why did she have to wear those clunky silver flip-flops and wreck the elegant image?  

We agree comfort is the first priority for the actor who delivered her first baby just about a week ago, but the sexy mother should realise that she’s still considered one of the style icons in B-town, preggie, extra-curvy or not. We loved that pastel Anarkali she wore and have nothing but kudos for the demure look, but those slippers….he bhagwan! If she’s really looking for comfort, aren’t there a whole lot of stylish and sophisticated options in that category too? Ash definitely needs a reality check when it comes to styling herself as a yummy mummy, especially now that she’s planning to make a comeback to the silver screen and get back to the entertainment grind by January, as was the story when the Heroine brouhaha happened. We suggest this hot mother make the most of her indefinite break and overhaul her footwear collection without wasting much time. Well, Ash, if we again see you in those clunky silver slippers that you wore to the hospital to deliver your bundle of joy, or even something remotely similar to that, we might just gift you a list of fashion dos and don’ts as a happy motherhood present. Trust us, this is only because you are worth it!
