On a recent red carpet, Esha smoldered in a custom Nikhil Thampi dress. Bardot-esque hair and make-up and a pair of fringe sandals rounded out the actor’s look. No two ways about it, she worked that look, head-to-toe.
Nikhil Thampi, the designer of her gown created this as an an homage to the recently deceased master couturier Azzedine Alaïa. Tell us what you think of it in the comments section below. Personally, while we love the idea of a hat-tip, this close a re-production blurs the line between an inspiration and straight-up reproduction. And if the idea going in was to re-create a look that close to its inspiration, then it veers in to the costume category. Yes, Esha looked hot. But the gown itself has us feeling… Let’s just say we are still processing how we feel about it.
