Who’s Hot Who’s Not (IIFA 2008)

Written by on July 14th, 2008

Abhishek and Aishwarya walked IIFA’s green carpet as usual, hand in hand. Thus, I’ll critique their fashion statements together. Firstly, Abhishek looked amazing sporting this black tux on his newly toned body. Aishwarya on the other hand, looked quite disappointing to me. The red Dior gown is too big and weird on her that she […]
