Today, we have only Sonam and that also her twitter pic:-)
Sonam wore a sequins Jacket dress by Vizyon. From what I know of Vizyon, its a brand that brings together international designers in India and its not a designer's name.. I love sequins but a sequined jacket dress is tough thing to wear and those shoes aren't helping. Dont they ruin something that could have been really edgy and chic? That dress needs heels and an attitude to match..What do u guys think - yay or nay?
Who: Sonam Kapoor Where: (L) The Twilight Saga: Eclipse - Mumbai Premiere, (R) At Fever FM
So what do you think? Is she forgiven for yesterday's appearance? Sonam decided to do classy and chic today. The stunning blue dress is from CUE - a label by Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, which she wore with clutch and pumps. The simple but elegant black dress is from Whistles, accessorized with CD bag and black pumps...love the blue dress and CD bag:-)
Who: Ira Dubay Where: (L) The Twilight Saga: Eclipse - Mumbai Premiere, (R) At Fever FM
Two different events, same exact pose - the neck is titled at the same angle!! Someone has been practicing in front of the mirror:-) I think I am in love with the divinely draped Varun Bahl nude asymmetrical dress. Ira wisely didn't over-accessorize and completed her look with Grey printed peep-toes. Her Fever FM is nothing to write about..
Who: Amrita Puri Where: (L) The Twilight Saga: Eclipse - Mumbai Premiere, (R) At Fever FM
Wow, I am really impressed!! What is the budget for this movie's promotion?? And the sidekicks are better dressed than the Star:P I am having a tough time deciding which one I like better. The bright green bandage-style dress by Elise Overland or the floral print pink/purple dress..green, no, pink...no, green..
Who: Lisa Haydon Where:The Twilight Saga: Eclipse - Mumbai Premiere
One is lonely number:( Lisa was not present for the FM promotions but made it up at the premiere in an elegant Mandira Wirk dress with tulip hemline. Looks like a laser cut pattern and the shoes are really cool.
Update on Rhea's outfit : As per her tweet 'zara top, zara pants and shoes from ports 1961.oh and dads watch!'
Who: Sonam Kapoor Where: Promoting Aisha at 98.3FM Radio Mirchi
There is nothing specific awful about this outfit, its just there is too much going on with cropped top, jacket and pink high waisted pants. The bare midriff doesn't quite work for me. A case of trying to hard...
Just got a tweet from Sonam that her whole ensemble is from Topshop..
Who: Ira Dubey Where: Promoting Aisha at 98.3FM Radio Mirchi
I like the print of this dress. Reminds me of 'Color by Numbers' book u get for the kids - and she has all the colors hanging at her waist, nice!! Not sure why is standing in such an awkward manner. U think Sonam is twisting her arm for wearing a better outfit..LOL, just kidding....
Who: Rhea Kapoor Where: Promoting Aisha at 98.3FM Radio Mirchi
Cute camouflage print paired with black paints and pink shoes..Do you think pink shoes work here or should she have worn black?
Who: Gul Panag, Isha Koppikar, Celina Jaitely Where: Hello Darling music release
All of us are entitled to be stupid. Unfortunately, some people tend to abuse this privilege:-)
Who: Celina Jaitely
We have been after Celina to change her hairstyle and this is what we get!! Neck up, she is a hot mess - looks like a drag-queen. She also needs to go one size up for the skirt. I do love the print on the top - reminds me a lot of D&G rose print of this season..I would love to see a dress in that print.
Who: Gul Panag
Miltary blazer - $50, Skinny jeans - $29.99, Necklaces - $9.99, Laughing so hard that water spurted from my nose - priceless..
Who: Isha Koppikar
Ok, Isha is not that bad. Her sequins bustier is sexy and I love the contrast between metallic grey and orange silk. Her skirt has a terrible fit and the shoes are a no-no..
Sonam is back in town and will be a daily feature since she is going to be promoting her new film :-) She look chic in her shirt-tights combo which she smartly paired with a cropped blazer. Love her Balenciaga bag and oxford shoes..
Suneet Verma presented his collection on day 5 of Delhi couture week. Unlike other designer collections, his outfits were not very heavy on the embroidery but the emphasis was on brocade fabrics, layering and draping. Elaborate headgear was a central point and so was the use of tassels. The color range was jewel color tones, perfect for fall and in line with American/European fall colors. All in all, pretty well done.
Varun Bahl's collection was titled "Anastasia Found" and was an amalgamation of Russian and Indian designs - lots of capes, boleros, furs mixed with traditional outfits. Varun used a lot of velvet which he teamed up with heavily brocaded saris and lehengas. The color palette was jewel tones of burgundy, deep greep, purple. The whole collection had a very regal look and also included gorgeous headpieces. I think a velvet corset is going to be in my fall wish list:-) Here are my top picks:
Abu Jani – Sandeep Khosla's collection called 'Almost 24', was the Grand Finale of the Delhi Couture week 2010. The designers will complete 25 years in the business in 2011, and the title was an ode to this landmark. Their collection was divided into three parts - Abaan, a journey through floral thread embroidery; Sonaar, a homage to 'Sonar Kella', the book and film by Satyajit Ray; and Shabb, a gothic black form. The color palette was mainly whites and beige. There were only few pieces that caught my eye:( Shweta Nanda Bachchan was the showstopper in three-dimensional lotus motif dress. The dress is really over the top but then its a fashion show...
JJ Valaya's collection was inspired by the courtesan Alika and her quest for love. At this collection, he debuted the 'Alika Jacket' which he hopes will become a signature piece of the House of Valaya. It is a cross between jacket and shirt. What do you think? a must have? I love the last one done in burnished gold...and dont miss the exquisite lehengas!!
Manav presented his collection of Day 3 of Delhi Couture week. His collection was inspired by the movie "An Affair to rememmber" and consisted of gowns, saris and leghengas in bright red, metallic greys and turquoise. He mixed a lot of traditional embroidery with Swarovski crystals. The thing that struck me most was the dramatic headgear - I can totally see Rihanna and Lady Gaga hoarding them:-) "My brand is meant only for women who are bold and can carry any outfit with panache and confidence. I believe in dressing up like a true princess," says Gangwani. I loved the architectural details of his outfits and here are some of my top picks..
Anamika presented her couture collection on Day 4 and most of the outfits were in blacks, whites, beige with splashes of red. in There were a lot of funky collars - the last one reminds me of Vlad, The impaler:-) (aka Dracula). She did a mix of gowns and saris as well as jackets with tights in rich, luxurious embroidery. As per the designer "I wanted it to have practical volume, a regal normality." Some of my top picks from her collection.
Koel's ruffle sleeve top makes a major style statement and she pairs it with the cutest two-tone shoes. I would have picked a different handbag but she looks very polished. We have a winner here..
Who: Neha Dhupia Where: Mystery shampoo launch
Fabulousity overload!! Seriously, this woman can do no wrong. Not sure what I love most about this appearance - her shiny, glamorous hair or the dress color or the stunning design..
Who: Urmila Matondkar Where: Launch of Areopagus Spa
I haven't seen Urmila in long time and she isn't really rocking here. Other than the color, I am not sure I like anything about her outfit.
Who: Aishwarya Rai Where: Sightseeing in Rome
Aish plays it safe in a simple but cute dress paired with a blue handbag and white kitten heels. She is dressed down but still looks pretty..
Who: (L) Soha Ali Khan, (R) Laila Khan
Who: (L)Jacqueline Fernandez, (R) Sophie Choudry
Where: Manav Gangwani show at Delhi Couture week
I like Jacqueline's outfit best. Sophie's outfit is not very well tailored - something odd about the fitting. Seeing Soha after a loong time too and she scores in a bronze sari with a thin golden border. Laila's outfit deserved better shoes..
Pearls Delhi couture week'2010 did not have a lot of media coverage as a result its very difficult to get access to the collections. The timesofindia.com has the best coverage but all the images have copyright issues so wont be able to upload it on my blog:-( Do check out the website esp. JJ Valaya's collection which has gotten the best reviews.
A lot of celebs walked the ramp. Here are the pics.
Anil Kapoor, Ira Dubey, Lisa Haydon for Anamika Khanna
I like Ira's outfit - the embroidery is really exquisite and love the pop of red color.
Jacqeuline Fernandez for Raakesh Agarvwal
Nah, didnt like it at all..
Lara Dutta for Rina Dhaka
Is that a spider of her shoulder? This is such a item number outfit and I find it embarrassing that someone like Rina did this as a showstopper..
Kangana Ranaut for JJ Valaya
You guys know my heat beats for JJ Valaya:-) Kangana looks very different and nice but I am not feeling any love for this outfit. I find her jewelery more interesting:-(
I love everything about Twinkle's look - the big bow, the tailored black jacket, leopard print purse and nude pumps. I was a little iffy about the black jacket but I think it makes the bow more dramatic..What do u guys think? And, if u had to wear the exact same outfit, would u keep this bag or go for a brighter color(Silver??Red??Pink)..
Whoever said red to the last question, got her wish:-) Trisha wore a boring dress but she made sure she got everyone's attention with this red LV bag. It maybe a LV but it is pretty ugly to me in the current form..Maybe a classy beige wraparound/trenchcoat-style dress would have looked better..Ok so if u had to style this handbag, what outfit would u choose?
Who: Mallika Arora Where: Khatta Meetha
Cute dress + cute bag do not make a cute ensemble. Please dont ask me why:-) For a change, Mallika is not oozing sex from her every pore...
Who: Guest Where: Salt premiere
I dont care who she is or who she is wearing. I. WANT. HER. MARC. JACOBS. STAM. BAG...
Rohit Bal presented his collection on day two at the Delhi Couture Week'10. And his venue was the indoor swimming pool. His pieces are not online yet, only the last part which was pretty dramatic. I had to share it with you all..Top this, Mr Lagerfeld!!
