Kareena Kapoor-Khan closed the winter-festive 2021 edition of FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week by wearing a stunning dress by ace designer Gaurav Gupta yesterday. Her strapless, mermaid-cut gown was embellished with silver and taupe bead detailing all over the body and had a statement neckline. We were totes dazzled by Bebo’s charm and Gaurav’s artistic finesse that went into the making of his sustainable ‘Redifine’ collection. Take a look:
The actress’s ramp walk for the designer was quite an iconic moment because she turned a showstopper for him after six years. While a lot has changed since 2015 in Kareena’s life, her confidence to rule every space she’s in has defs not and we are glad about it. But, it seems that a few netizens are having a hard time accepting the fact that Bebo is defying the stereotypes associated with age in our society.
From charging fees for a project that is at par with her male contemporaries to accepting roles that have nothing to do with her age, the actress is challenging ageism against women in the entertainment industry. Sadly, certain netizens still cannot do away with their regressive mindset and have the audacity to troll the diva. Here are the things they have been saying about her age, look and body after her LFW 2021 walk and we have so many questions about it:
It’s funny how often words that are actually meant to address people respectfully—aunty, chachi, didi—are used to age shame people. Also, we wonder why people are so obsessed with ‘doing things at the right time’? What’s is this elusive ‘right time’ and who made these rules? While we are at it, let us just say that it was an amazing time for Kareena to walk that ramp and leave us dazzled with her charisma.
Bebo has had quite a year and we gotta say, she’s slaying it! Kareena and Saif Ali Khan welcomed their second son, Jeh, on February 21. The actress opened up about her second pregnancy on International Yoga Day on her social media handle and shared her postpartum experience. She wrote in the caption, “Now after two babies and four months postpartum… this time I was just exhausted and in too much pain to get back but today I’m slowly and steadily getting back at it.”
While Bebo is accepting the changes her body has experienced after her pregnancies, it seems that certain netizens cannot. Well, we just have three words for them—get a life! She looked gorgeous in her shimmery, body-hugging off-shoulder gown and it’s a look as iconic as it can get.
Body shaming, age shaming or trolling anyone for any reason is simply unacceptable. Instead of spewing hatred online, we suggest that netizens appreciate Kareena for reigning over the industry by her own rules.
