No, don’t worry, none of them are hurt or injured. It’s just that there’s yet another quirky style that has invaded B-town for quite a while now

Though it’s a pretty old trend, the ladies do dig this convenient outfit out of their closets every now and then and flaunt it. Sussanne Roshan and Nargis Fakhri donned it recently. And so have many others in the fairly recent past. It’s a trend that’s derived from an era in which even our great-grandfathers didn’t exist. Herve Leger came up with the bright idea of showing off womanly curves by creating dresses made of bandage-like strips, body hugging enough to flaunt hourglass figures. And these Bollywood beauties have taken to them big time and don’t mind looking like stylish Egyptian mummies. We just hope a palaeontologist doesn’t carry them off to a research lab to explore what lies beneath. But then, not much would change – the industry may just run short of a couple of hoity-toity members…

Some of the actors who have donned this interesting bandage look at various events….
