Events: Hello magazine Hall of fame event

Who: Deepika Padukone

That is one gorgeous necklace!! I wish I could say the same about Deepika's dress. The skirt is soo big and puffy that I bet it can be used as a parachute in case of emergency!! I do like the concept of bows but it is not well executed.

Who: Kareena Kapoor

Looks like Kareena got dressed in a hurry - she just grabbed her bedsheets and added some drapes and a skinny belt!! The color of her dress is nice..

Who: Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar

Honey, you are supposed to keep your guy on a leash not yourself!!

Who: Kangana Ranaut

You have to see a lot of ugly dresses before you get a beautiful one!! Love the dress and I am really mad at Kangana for spoiling it with those shoes!!

Who: Aishwarya Rai

Aishwarya wore a blue Elli Saab Spring 2010 dress to the event. Will have to wait for full length pics to see how she killed another couture dress:-)

Who: Sonali Bendre

Sonali looks chic in a beautifully embroidered (kahmiri) salvaar suit. She wisely lets her dress take center-stage and kept her accessories to the minimum.

Events: Sahara sports awards

Sridevi, Jacqueline Fernandez, Sonakshi Sinha

I like the color of Sridevi's dress and her wrap. The cut of the dress doesn't really flatter her and its little too wrinkly at the waist. Sridevi's knees aren't her best feature and she should wear outfits that hit her below/at the knees. The clutch is cute but her shoes are soo wrong!!

I think calling Jacqueline's dress OTT will be an understatement!!

Sonakshi looks cute in her sunny gown paired with red lips and spiral curls. Dont quite like the sash on the dress - always remind me of beauty pageants contestants!!

Who: Dia Mirza
Where: (L) Sahara sports awards (R) Vivek Oberoi's wedding

I love the high-collar blouse and the gold polka dots look great but then the sari becomes too busy. Not a big fan of braids done with such a formal outfit...

Dia is cute as a button in the pink lehenga at Vivek Obersoi's wedding. Love her outfit and hair although I would have preferred a burnished gold Bottega Veneta ..

Sonam Kapoor at the Espirit store

Who: Sonam Kapoor

Sonam did the dress + blazer combination for the Espirit store fashion event. She accessorized with pearl strands, flower brooch, Chanel bag and lovely blue pumps (Steve Madden??). I think she went a little overboard with the accessories and could have easily skipped her pearls. Her hairstyle looks a wee bit weird..

Best Dressed of the Month (Freida Edition) - Oct' 10

First things first, BDOM for Sep'10 was Freida Pinto and she is now on our Hall of Fame.

Freida had a busy month promoting her new movie at the various film festivals. She wowed us on the red carpet with one winning look after the other. She had three great looks this month and it doesnt seem fair to have just her in the BDOM poll for Oct. So let's do two polls - one Freida edition and the other - the regular one.

Left: Look1, Center: Look2, Right: Look3

Freida's best dressed look is :
Look1 in Alexander McQueen
Look2 in Marchesa
Look3 in Christian Dior free polls

Sonam Kapoor in Prabal Gurung

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: Bombay Times 16th anniversary bash

These are the best pics I have and yes, that's Sonam Kapoor!! Pin-straight hair and smoky eyes give her a very chic and polished look. Neck up, she is fabulous..
She wore Prabal Gurung to the anniversary bash. The pics are too unclear to make a call on the dress. Iffy on the belt - maybe a skinny belt would have been better??

A post of few words...

Who: Deepika Padukone
Where: Rahul Bose sports auction

We are having such a decent run on the red carpet but I guess the call of the bridesmaid dresses was too strong to resist!! And is having target practice pattern on your chest the fashion this year?? Its not on mine but please shoot me!!

Who: Raima Sen
Where: Mansoor Khan makeup lounge launch

Someone, somewhere is missing a tablecloth!!

Who: Koel Puri
Where: Rahul Bose sports auction

Talk about making a dramatic entrance and exit!! Exactly what a dress should do for a woman:-)

Who: Guest
Where: Rahul Bose sports auction

Elegant and chic - I like!!

Dia for Rocky S

Every week is some fashion week or the other!! This week is Indian bridal week and Dia walked the ramp for Rocky S. She looks beautiful in an exquisitely embroidered lehenga. Not sure if the color is bride appropriate but I am ready to fight tradition for this one:-)

Freida Pinto at Doha Tribeca Film Festival 2010

Who: Freida Pinto
Where: "Miral" premiere at Doha film festival

Freida wore a floaty, turquoise Christian Dior Resort 2011 dress with Jimmy Choo shoes to the her movie premiere at the film festival. The dress has a beautiful embellished bodice and Freida did her hair up for a sophisticated look . She looks polished but the color doesn't really work for me.

Who: Freida Pinto
Where: At Doha film festival

This is more my style. Love, love her Dolce and Gabbana lacy dress which she teamed with Ferragamo shoes !! The color is just awesome, the neckline draws attention to her delicate shoulders and the ruching accents her tiny waist. Easy, breezy hair completed her look..

Which look did you like on her?

Mallika Sherawat at Doha Tribeca Film Festival

Who: Mallika Sherawat

Of the two appearances Mallika did to promote her movie at the Doha film festival, I am going with the metallic gold one. Its pretty good and the skirt falls beautifully in fluid movement!! She could have done with some accessories other than her idiotic smile...
The black cut-out gown is sooo Mallika - making sure no once misses her "assets"!! Doesn't the boob covering remind you of target practice?!!?

Looks of the day

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: Unveiling of "Dog send- The story of Simba" book

Sonam put her own spin on vests by layering two of them and pairing them with brown skinnies for a chic downtown look. A pulled-together look with minimal accessories.

Who: Raima Sen
Where: MAMI closing ceremony

Raima in a very eye-catching sari. Love the shading on the sari and the contrast border with bright pink. Interesting color of the blouse - a blue would be too matchy and pink too bright - black looks good.

I really love my...

Who: Ira Dubey t-straps and also black skinnies!
And did you notice, her legs are in the same angle/pose in all the pics which are over a period of time!!?! Whoa, this is deep:-)

Blue is the new black

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: BBC "Knowledge" magazine launch

Sonam wore an inky-blue peplum dress to a magazine launch. The dress is just perfect on her and the ruffle at the waist delicately accents Sonam's long and lean frame. She paired the dress with silver metallic peep-toes and shiny, side-swept hair...Love!!

Who: Malaika Arora Khan
Where: Gillette 30 day challenge

Malaika in a blue one-shoulder Grecian dress with metallic embellishments which perfectly compliment her willowy figure. Since she was wearing such a notice-me color, Malaika kept the rest of her look simple and opted for a classic pair of silver peep-toe pumps.

Who: Neetu Chandra
Where: Mokssh wine launch

Neetu wore a strapless blue maxi-dress which she styled with a beautiful silver clutch and silver bell necklace. The accessories bring a sense of luxury to her otherwise plain-jane dress.Wish she had gone for better shoes and hairstyle!!


Sari Style

To give you a little background, Ashutosh Gowariker's new movie "Khele Hum Jee Jaan Se" is based on the 1930 Chittagong uprising against the British rule in India. The film portrays Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Sikander Kher as revolutionaries ready to do anything for the sake of freedom.
At the music release of the movie, the leading actors were dressed up "in character". Most of the guests also were in sari - "Bengali" style...

Do you like period dramas? Is this movie on your "to-see" list?

Deepika Padukone, Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan

The festive season is in full swing with the countdown set for Diwali - festival of lights. Here are some celebs dressed in their fine silks. Each one is looking beautiful in their own way and hope everyone gets what they are praying for :-)
Me, I am praying for world peace;-) An unlimited expense account will also do..
Shilpa Shetty, Twinkle Khanna, Guest

Gayatri Joshi, Bhawna Pandey, Karishma Kapoor (@ Manish Malhotra fashion show)

Deepika Padukone: Two looks, One day

Who: Deepika Padukone
Where: Kingfisher Calendar event

Deepika's color of the day was pinkish-nude and she did two outfits - long and short:-) The draping is fabulous on both dresses but the first one is more classy and showcases her curves in a more sensuous way. Both outfits are screaming for accessories - bib necklaces, bracelets or glitzy clutches.. Do love her red aviators but that dress needs different shoes..

Kangana's Photoshoot for Harper's Bazaar (Aug 2010)

Love all the outfits in this shoot. The pairing of silver sequins with red pumps is really brilliant and something I am gonna try come this festive season. This first dress (nude Valentino) was also seen on Jennifer Aniston.
Kangana has been photo-shopped beyond recognition in the second pic, first row!!

Aishwarya' photoshoot for Conde Nast Traveller

Shot in Paris, this was for the first issue of Traveller, India edition.
Simple and classy!! The sheer polka dot dress is by Dolce and Gabbana. It was also seen on Marion Cotillard for UK Harper Bazaar (Aug 2010) and Eve Mendes for "W" Magazine (July 2010).
This brown hair color is so much better than the red one Aishwarya has nowadays..

Kareena Kapoor for Filmfare

Filmfare is not a fashion magazine but a bollywood gossip and news magazine so was not expecting great clothes. The photo-shoot was done in Morocco.
Kareena is looking pretty and her flawless skin caught by eye..
Is Kareena wearing a macrame curtain in the last pic?!!

Would you rather...

..tear ur hair out looking at celeb faux pas or play a game!!

I say lets play a game and give our tresses a much needed break:-)

Here is second round of this game. In case you missed it, here's the first time we played it.

Would you rather...
..wear a long, flowing anarkali or a shorter, perkier one.

..wear dots or stripes. demure Simran being wooed by her Raj in "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge" or watch crazy talkative Geet in a part comedy of errors and part romance movie- "Jab We Met".

..confidently strut in stilettos or sashay effortlessly in wedges.

...start your day with coffee or tea.

My choices
1) Long anarkali
2) Dots
3) Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
4) Stilettos
5) Tea!!

On a separate note, couple of weeks ago the fabulous Tanvi did a "Take 10" post on me - I answered 10 random questions. Do check out her fabulous and stylish blog!!

Freida does it again..

Who: Freida Pinto

Stunning. An exquisitely-made strapless frock with a jeweled sweet-heart neckline bodice. Freida wore a pink Marchesa dress to the "Miral" premiere at Abu Dhabi film festival. She accessorized with a gold Roger Vivier clutch and shoes. She went for soft curls and nude makeup. Love everything about this look including the color..

Raveena at Tommy Hilfiger Childrens Store launch

Tommy Hilfiger India recently launched their Childrenswear Stores with a lavish event at the Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. Raveena Tandon was at the event with her son Ranbirvardhan.
Raveena is in Tommy Hilfiger dress and nude cutout shoes. I like the double breasted dress and have to say, this is one of the better appearances by Raveena. She looks chic and polished...

Its a famine of color!!

Who: Chitrangada Singh
Where: Roopa Vohra collection launch

Chintrangada's outfit is nothing to write home about but what really caught my eye was her pendant and perfectly coiffed big hair..The pendant is not very tasteful and I am going to leave it that...Her hair and makeup is perfect for a big shindig..

Who: Bipasha Basi
Where: Vera Moda model auditions

Bipasha finally experimented with her hair and its....... bad!! Why did she style her hair into a turban (Tipu Sultan, anyone)? And she can afford to wear real black pearls - why did she pile on these tacky plastic beads? and why did she wear such manly shoes?

Its very important to ask 'why' becoz without scientific curiosity we would not have scientific discovery. And today's scientific discovery is --- money doesnt buy you style!!

Who: Sophie Choudry
Where: Madame showroom opening

That a very interesting take on LDB with the belt and neck in the same print. I have a feeling its DIY - Sophie has taken a strapless LDB and tied a long scarf around her waist and then around her neck with the knot behind her neck..All you, DIY Queens, let me know if this works and how it looks..

I am not going to try since I am quite capable of strangling myself!!

Events: Vera Moda fashion show

Sushmita, Shilpa, Bipasha and Dia walked the ramp for Vera Mode. All wore LBDs except for Shilpa who wore black satin skinnies. Shilpa also rocked a black military jacket. All look fabulous and the outfits are pretty wearable including Bipasha's which can be worn for clubbing..

Which outfit is your style? I can totally see myself wearing Shilpa's ensemble. Also, Dia's since she balances her sequins with a plain skirt...

Who: Sushmita Sen

Who: Shilpa Shetty

Who: Bipasha Basu

Who: Dia Mirza
