Is That You Illeana?

If you have been keeping up with the trailers, promos and songs of the movie – Happy Ending, there is one person that’s sure to catch your eye – Illeana D’Cruz.

She’s looking beautiful, happy, casually chic and so damn good! Illeana

So we decide to do what we do best. Decode her look and figure out how she’s looking so darn good!Happy Ending

She’s Bang On With Her Style
Usually, Bollywood ladies are dressed up way too much, and way too unrealistically (we have been moving away from this trend though) in the movies. Here is something where the stylist really got the edge. Illeana’s outfits have been kept chic, yet something we all can see ourselves wearing. Take a look at the pictures above, the blue Aztec dress (Aztec’s seen around so much, but how often have we even seen the celebrities wear them in movies) with the grey sweater, the white dress with a peach shrug with a belt and the blue jumpsuit are outfits that we all can see ourselves wearing.

On Spot With Trends
Because movies are usually shot months/years in advance, the style is usually not spot on. But here, Illeana is quite on target. We take a look at the trends that have recently been made popular, and the leading lady is already sporting them.

The Round Shades – They’ve made a comeback and how! In the last few weeks, we’ve seen more and more celebrity sport this style of frame and we’re loving it. And clearly, so is Illeana! She pulls them of well, and they bring a whole lot of sass to her overall look.

The Top Bun – Is something that the whole world is wearing, but for some reason, we’ve not really seen a whole lot of it in movies. Illeana not only brings the trend in, but also sports it well.Screen Shot 2014-11-21 at 3.16.48 pm

Realistic Hair & Make Up – Clothes aren’t the only things that have been kept realistic. The hair and make-up has followed that suite too! A move we definitely laud! Neutral tones and shades and the occasional red lipstick and smokey eyes complete Illeana’s look. They make up suits the occasion and she’s not randomly seen with pancake-d make up for just about anything!Screen Shot 2014-11-21 at 3.17.36 pm

The hair too, has not been well tamed. Not only does it go well with her character, it also imitates real life. Most of us would not spend time perfecting our hair for a quick lunch or a simple afternoon outing. And that is exactly what the stylist had in mind for Illeana too!

While hair, make-up and style have greatly contributed to Illeana’s look, we’ve realized it also extends to the personality her character has been given.Happy Ending - IDC - 10

The women, these days are more care free, fun loving and know how to have a good time. Most movies only attribute these characters to the male actor, but not the female.

Here however, the leading lady’s character has been very much made like you or me. She’s fun, she’s outgoing and she’s definitely not just a glam doll.

Her character seems to have minimal inhibitions and we especially adored the scene where she seems to be playing strip poker with Saif Ali Khan.Happy Ending - IDC - 9

This is definitely not an avatar we have seen the actress in before and are completely looking forward to the film, especially to see how her character plays out.

Also, is it just us, or do you really get in the mood of getting out and having some fun after seeing these pics?
