Freida Pinto at the "The Last Airbender" premiere

Who: Freida Pinto

Who: Dev Patel and Freida Pinto
Where: "The Last Airbender" premiere

Freida wore a stunning green Oscar De La Renta (Resort 2011) dress to the premiere of M.Night Shyamalan's "The Last Airbender". Love the folds of this dress and what a fab color!! I cant take my eyes off her:-) She paired the dress with black shoes/clutch and gold earrings...A winner all the way..

Fashion Faceoff

Who: Rani Mukerjee, Kourtney Kardashian
Where: (L)Sabyasachi store opening, (R) TLK Fusion’s New “Kardashian Retail Project” press conference

Now, that's something you dont see everyday. Rani vs Kourtney!! Who would have thought:-) Neck up, there is no contest - Rani looks gorgeous with simple makeup and hairstyle. The olive green jumpsuit looks good with both black as well as brown accessories...But somehow, the length isn't right on Rani and Kourtney could have skipped her blazer. What do u think?

Who wore it better?
Rani Mukherjee
Kourtney Kardashian
Dont make me choose!!
Yuck, neither!! free polls

Bag envy

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: IHLS game launch

I have been lusting after this Chloe Paraty bag ever since I saw it in Vogue. Isn't it marvelous?? It doesn't quite flow with her outfit which is pretty smart and trendy. The floral top is from French Connection. I love the belt but not sure why she took my advice and wore Suri Cruise's ballet shoes:-) Black shoes would have been better as right now the shoes and bag are clashing..

You can buy the top here and the bag here.

Event: IHLS Ahmedabad promotions

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: Promoting IHLS in Ahmedabad

Aha, I was partially correct - Sonam went for curly/wavy hair for her Ahmedabad promotions. She could have proven me completely correct by doing a Lady Gaga - wearing the stunning silver blazer with a cone bra and skirt made out of real hair:-) Instead, she wore it with boring beige pants and a white shirt, sigh..

If you had the gorgeous silver blazer, how would you style it? My options -- A black pencil skirt + kitten heels would look chic.. So would a black bandage dress as the blazer would tone down the sexiness of the dress... A texture contrast with lemon yellow chiffon dress..

Okay, lets now predict her next appearance. I say she will go bald and will channel Suri Cruise:-)

White is the new black

Who: Tisca Chopra
Where: Gemfields Retail Jeweller India Awards

What: DVF Peggy Foldover clutch

Tisca wore a simple, elegant dress with beautiful side ruching and draped neck for a jewelry awards ceremony. The dress fits her perfectly, giving her an hourglass figure. The length is a little long for me (maybe she forgot to wax her legs??)...I am totally drooling over her DVF bag and the clutch's color contrast with the cream dress... Lets just ignore her gold cutout shoes..

You can buy the clutch, here.

Who: Queenie Dhody
Where: Gemfields Retail Jeweller India Awards

This could have been a cool look if she had skipped the boyfriend blazer and the belt. You dont have to wear all the trends at the same time, Queenie..

Who cares about Ujjwala's oomph (size 0, shiny/glossy hair, stunning cheekbones and perfect nose - yuck, how ugly) when we can have her dress!! On Sale!! Click here.

Another day, Another hit look

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: Promoting IHLS at Delhi

Sonam wore a Audrey Hepburn inspired Club Monaco dress which she "quirked" (her words) with Alexander McQueen yellow skull flats..And she had yet another hairstyle - do love the dainty hairband and the bow necklace is a nice touch. Now that she has done her hair straight, in loose knot, messy side braid, updo with hairband and has channeled Audrey Hepburn, what do you think she will do next?? I think it will be wavy/curly hair and Lady Gaga's clothes:-)

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly at Nawaz Modi Singhania's art exhibition

Who: Raageshwari

Raageshwari wore a chic dress with a sheer net overlay and she played it safe by sticking to same color accessories. Better safe than sorry:-)

Who: Sophie Choudry, Vidya Maldave, Pooja Batra

Three cute dresses completely spoiled by choice of accessories. Sophie wore a Alexander McQueen dress which she accessorized pretty well with her clutch. She then completely killed the look with those ugly shoes and bling bling necklace. On the other hand, I love Vidya's necklace but whatever look she was going for, she missed due to her tacky shoes and handbag..The less said about Pooja's (she is still around??) shoes, the better..Someone send them to fashionista rehab!!

Who: Sabina Singh

Fashion victim, someone please arrest her!! Seriously dude, lime green and neon pink?? and arrrgh, those shoes!!!

Genelia in Manish Malhotra

Who: (L) Genelia D'souza, (R) Aishwarya Rai
Where: (L) CNBC Awaaz Consumer Awards, (R) Retta Suzhi music launch

Genelia wore a white/pink Manish Malhotra saree which is pretty similar to what Aishwarya wore for Retta Suzhi audio launch. Ash was also wearing a Manish Malhotra. Genelia saree has an silver embellished border that was not there in Ash saree..Everybody including designers are into recycling..Good for the planet, good for u:-)

I have always found Genelia very vivacious and she looks cute in her sleek pony. But whats really hot is her blouse/top design!! I am on the fence regarding the saree but with the sexy blouse and minimum accessories, I think she carries it off well..What do u think? Is this blouse going to start a new trend?

Event : IHLS Dubai promotions

Who: Sonam Kapoor

Sonam wore a Black Chloe dress and a Grey Vivienne Westwood while promoting I Hate Luv Storys in Dubai. I love her perfectly, imperfect hair in both the appearances - the loose bun is really chic. A lot of people have commented on her makeup and yes, it does appear chalky/a shade lighter than her skin tone... Great dresses, a pity we cant see her shoes..

One hand in the pocket..

Who: Prachi Desai
Where:Promotion of 'Once upon a time in Mumbai' , International Cricket game launch

Prachi wore every similar dresses to different events and even posed in the same way on the red carpet. I liked her white dress but this Grey one is drab and the shoes are really yuck..She needs to stay away from "Buy one, Get one free" deals..

Sonam and Bipasha on Indian Idol

Who: (L) Sonam Kapoor, (R) Bipasha Basu

Sonam and Bipasha appeared on Indian Idol episodes (Bollywood version of American Idol) to promote their forthcoming movies, I hate Luv Storys and Lamha, respectively.

Sonam wore a Manish Malhotra saree and this is her first time in a saree outside a movie. Her top/blouse with dull gold concentric embellishment is to die for. The top ( longer length) on its own would look fab with dressy pants:-) The saree is also gorgeous and the scalloped edges make a major style statement..Since there is so much going on in the saree, I would have preferred a simple spaghetti top and saved this one for a different saree..

Bipasha wore a white/gold anarkali during her appearance. She totally rocks the outfit and looks very summery cool and chic. The shoes are iffy and I prefer peep-toes with anarkalis..Both wore big traditional earrings..

Saved the best for the last

Who: Imran Khan

Imran, the 'hero' of IHLS:-), accompanied Sonam on Indian Idol promotion..Dayum, he is smoking HAWT. We swoon!!!

Shop the summer trend - Dress shorts

I am really amazed at how the fashion media/marketing have taken something so common and staple as shorts and made it the hottest item this Summer. I mean we all own at least one pair of shorts, right. But noooo, its only now that it is fashionable to wear them..All those past Summers, boy, were we so uncool:-)

I have picked some dress short and combined them with different tops for outfits that you could wear to a dinner date. Happy Shopping!!

Where: Promoting "Aisha" at FM Fever

Sonam is putting us to sleep in this simple but tad boring grey dress. Not very found of her shoe choice either..Have you noticed that Sonam is always smiling? I dislike people who are this happy. Something must be wrong with her:p

Events: Rajneeti Success party

Who: Raageshwari

Va-va-voom, Raageshwari is all old school glamor in this high waisted pencil skirt that accentuates her waist. She pairs it with a stunning red button-down shirt and cute high heels. I am so happy that she didn't go for white shoes! A simple but very classy, feminine look..

Who: Mehr Jessia Rampal

Mehr wore a cute white top that is sexy and alluring yet prim and proper at the same time. It does look a size too big but she looks good wearing it with black skinnies. Talk about making a grand entrance AND exit !!

Who: Shazahn Padamsee

I am not feeling any love for this uninspired animal print dress and equally boring hair. The shoes are pretty fierce but somehow are not going with the outfit. I would have preferred deep red peep-toes or red clutch - some color to put life into this animal:-)

Who:(L) Tareena Patel, (R) Guest

Red-orange is a tough combination to pull off and even though Tareena's outfit looks like she slept in it, I do have to say she got the color shades right.
Totally digging the Halston-like dress on the guest. No to the golden bridal clutch and shoes...

Who: Amrita Rao

Whaaat??? sigh, somewhere a village is being deprived of it's idiot

Sonam at the launch of latest Filmfare issue

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: Launch of latest issue of Filmfare

Sonam wore a Sass and Bide (Australian designers) gray and ivory print jersey leggings with gold, silver and black beading. The leggings are pretty funky and make a loud statement. The best way to carry them off this is by pairing it with a simple solid top like Sonam does...

You can buy the Sass and Bide leggings here.

Who: Tanisha Mohan, Ayesha Thapar
Where: Zara Delhi opening, Night with Canali

Given a formal occasion, what's your style? Will you go in for an understated elegance in a classic LBD and bright red lips or would you go all out for a glam look in a LGD (Little Gold Dress)? Both ladies look good. Ayesha paired her LBD with an equally classy 2.55 Chanel bag. On the other hand, I am a little surprised with Tanisha's choice of brightly colored bag..

Spotted around town

Who: Shazahn Padamsee
Where: Luxury Lounge Launch

When did the acid wash jeans from 80's come back? I am all for recycling but shouldn't certain styles be left in the past? I am too distressed to notice her cute aquamarine necklace, brown jacket and how she matched her hair color to her jacket:-) A mix of 80s nightmare and 90s chic..

I really love my...

Who: Nishka Lulla Fuchsia pumps. Nishka has worn the same shoes but she has styled them very differently with each outfit. They may not all be great but I am impressed by her creativity. Since the pumps are so much neon, I like them best when worn with white.. Will you wear such bright pumps? If yes, how would you style them?

Update: Nishka just corrected me that these are in fact not the same pair but 3 different pink pumps!!

Weekend round up

Who: Rekha, Hema Malini, Jaya Bachchan
Where: Gautam Rajadhyaksha's book launch

Golden saree, heavy jewellery - Rekha as usual was dressed up as a bride even for a book launch. Talk about being over dressed:-) Hema and Jaya kept it simple in white outfits. I like the thin silver hemline in Jaya's Abu-Sandeep outfit.

Who: Praveen Dusanj, Haseena Jethmalani, Guest
Where: Royal Rajasthan Charity Dinner Gala

I love the color combination and floral print of Praveen's saree. The print is accentuated with golden embroidery. Cute spiral curls..
Haseena looked very elegant and classy in her white ensemble. Her outfit looks like chikankari work. Totally digging the flower in her hair and her golden clutch.
More than the outfit, the vintage looking clutch of the guest caught my eye. The clutch ties the whole outfit together and gives the guest a very regal bearing.

A short story

Who: Shreya Saran
Where: Nishka Lulla and Masaba's design preview

No, I have no clue why is Shreya wearing Miley Cyrus's shorts. Most importantly, why would anyone want to dress up like Miley Cyrus in the first place? Fab Prada bag, though...

Who: Padma Lakshmi

Finally, Padma Lakshmi in an outfit that looks great on her. She looks polished and the whole outfit is a do except for the purse - the color doesn't seem right..What legs!!

Events: Brides of Mumbai Exhibition

Who: (L) Sophie Choudry, (R) Sherlyn Chopra

Sophie and Sherlyn wore the same shade of aquamarine to exhibition. Sophie wore a saree with tacky gold border and was totally over the top. Sophie, its an exhibition not an actual marriage, doh!! Sherlyn wore a anarkali style dress and fared much better. I like the top part of her dress - the long, fitted brocade..

Color me Orange

Kajol at a book launch

A rare sighting - my fave actress, Kajol at Gautam Rajadhyaksha's book 'Chechere' launch. She is preggers with her second child and is glowing!! What a gorgeous smile. Wish she did more movies, sigh...Pregnancy does strange things to you - like make u wear terrible outfits:-) This Manish Malhotra design is perfect for covering ur bump but the panels and the gaudy hemline are a complete no no...

Magazine Covers - June 2010


Actors aka People who are taking over the world..wait, dont they already rule this planet:p

Marie Claire - Diandra Soares, Nethra Raghuraman
Bazaar - Nethra Raghuraman
Elle - Tamara Moss
Vogue - Jacqueline Fernandez
FHM - Deepika Padukone
Femina - Aishwarya Rai

I am in love with the Elle cover. Tamara looks fierce and has been styled fabulously!! The only scary part is that her thighs are slimmer than my arms:-o Memo to self: Stop eating chocolate brownies, in fact just stop eating!!

Marie Claire has also been styled very well - drooling over the silver sequins dress - but with the background being the same color, looks a little washed out. Can you help me ID the remaining two models?

Harper's Bazaar - Dreamy concoction of a dress in pale rose color and the necklace is an object of desire but together they just fizzle.

Jacqueline Fernandez and Deepika both work it for the cover.

Both Aishwarya's look gorgeous on the Femina cover but its slightly weird..It kinda gives an impression of narcissism which may not be what they were going for...or were they:-)
