Ouch! We can’t afford Malaika Arora’s jacket even if it were on sale


We saw the entire Khan-daan grabbing dinner on the occasion of Helen’s birthday at a popular restaurant in the city. Arpita Khan Sharma, Sohail Khan, Arhaan Khan and even Iulia Vantur made the day memorable for the birthday girl and posed for the paparazzi in high spirits. But the one who hogged the limelight at the bash was none other than Malaika Arora (sorry, Iulia) who made our jaws drop with her uber chic casual look.

When it’s Malaika, things have got to be spicy, right? This time too, she turned heads in a stunning combination of embroidered jacket and denim, both from Alice and Olivia. Well, the moment we got our hands on her pictures, the studded blue denims with flared bottoms caught our attention. The length of the jeans looked awkward, and we really wish it was a bit shorter. So, we can’t really say that we liked them, but the actress more than made up for the disappointing pants with her killer white bomber jacket with embellishments (it was love at first sight). It just took the look a notch higher in a jiffy. The impressive floral embroidery and silver detailing on the zipper and sides made it perfect for casual dining with family.

Now, here’s the interesting part. Or shall we say the disheartening part? We tried to find the jacket online with an intention to buy it (secretly hoping that it was available at dirt cheap rates) and got to know the fatal price. The Alice + Olivia jacket is available for approx Rs 54,000, which is the discounted price and it costs approx Rs 90,000 originally. Boohoo! Malaika spent a good ninety thousand on just a jacket? Celebrities and their extravagant lifestyles. Sigh!
