We applaud celebrities who break sartorial rules on the regular and dare to take risks. Having said that, the riskier the outfit, the higher the chances of it going south. In the age of Instagram, it's not the best when you do end up failing, especially when you are one of India's biggest TV producer.
Yes, Ekta Kapoor stepped out last night to celebrate one of her shows Yeh Hai Mohabbatein having done 1500+ episodes, and her #OOTN could've used some more thought. The producer was wearing a one-shouldered maroon piece that was half-gown and half-top with jeans and... peep-toe wedges (you read that right).
Here she is with YHM star Divyanka Tripathi.

No wonder *Kya! Kya! Kya?!* was our first thought. Ekta worthy, no? Jokes apart, right off the bat, you see those wedges and know they were a bad idea. If you're wearing a gown-like top with wedges, which are anyway a thing of the past, it's not going to be a success.
In this picture with Anita Hassanandani and Karan Patel, Ekta's black and white filter couldn't save the outfit either.
Next thought. 'So. Much. Ruffle.' Even though that isn't always a bad thing (we love ruffles), Miss Kapoor chose the wrong fabric and silhouette for all that ruffle to be a good thing. That synthetic shiny blend looked tacky and didn't do anything for you, Ekta, and neither did the fit.
Maybe if she had picked chiffon and gone with a longer, more flowy silhouette, it could have turned out differently for Ekta. More importantly, she should have kicked off those wedges and slipped into heeled sandals or sleek pumps instead. Here's how it could have looked.
The silver lining, though? Ekta Kapoor did get the dramatic reaction she loves to get, didn't she? Speaking of drama, Ekta's Kausatii Zindagii Kay 2 is coming out soon. Who's excited? We know we are!
