Looks of the day

Who: Chitrangada Singh in Burberry Resort 2011
Where: At the opening of Burberry store

I dont have a full size image of Chitrangada at the Burberry store opening so till then, the runway picture will have to do:(

That out of the way, I just want to drool over Chitrangada. She is tres magnifique! What really blew me away was the color combination of soft orange with brown and then topped with red lips. She is the only one who can carry off this "window drapes inspired couture" dress:-) Dying to see what shoes she wore..

Who: Shazahn Padamsee
Where: Museum store opening

Another "meh" floral dress but Shazahn kept it interesting by wearing red hot peep-toes with it. Another reason to buy more shoes since they can totally make or break an outfit.

Mallika Sherawat - Oscars 2011

Who: Mallika Sherawar
Where: Oscars 2011

Mallika wore a dress that is pretty gorgeous and makes her look all elegant and classy. Even her makeup and hair is right, but she spoils the whole thing by posing with her chest out. In all the pics except one. I really think she cant help it!

No, I have no clue how she got invited to the event!

Aishwarya Rai - Oscars 2011

Who: Aishwarya Rai
Where: Oscars 2011

Aishwarya walked the red carpet at Oscars, 2011 in a bronze Giorgio Armani Prive gown. She paired the gown with Jimmy Choo Lana clutch. Smokey eyes and nude lips completed the look.

Have to say she looks like a goddess! I love the color of the dress and the dress itself is understated and yet so glamorous and sleek. Her makeup is just flawless. You did good, girl!

Weekend Roundup

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: Shahid Kapoor bday bash

Bed-sheet tied up with string or lovely grecian dress ?? You decide.

Who: Suzanne Khan
Where: At her "Charcoal project"

Suzanne kept it simple in a very feminine and flattering LBD in a classic silhouette - a close-fitted bodice and full-flare skirt nipped with a skinny belt. The pleating on the sleeve and tiers on the skirt add a new twist to the old classic. Love!

Who: Preity Zinta
Where: Suzanne Khan "Charcoal project"

Love is blind, so is adoration:-) I refuse to see Preity's washed out face or her common-place front-ruffle dress. I think she just rocks!!

Who: Katrina Kaif, Twinkle Khanna
Where: Suzanne Khan "Charcoal project"

Katrina succeeded in doing the impossible - making florals look as dull as the ditch water. And as if the dress wasn't depressing enough, Katrina paired it with drab brown accessories.
Twinkle also wore some dull colors but by adding a bright green bag and layered gold necklace, she totally elevated her outfit. All hail the queen of accessorizing!!

Who: Shilpa Shetty, Sophie Choudry
Where: Suzanne Khan "Charcoal project"

Wow, Shilpa's body is a work of art! Just one question - how do you sit in that dress or more importantly, breath?

A wraparound dress and a tulip hemline - both are my favorites and no wonder, I love Sophie's outfit. The color is great and I like her choice of accessories.

Who: Gauri Khan, Farah Ali Khan
Where: Suzanne Khan "Charcoal project"

Is that really you, Gauri? Gauri in something that is not bright orange, OTT or blinding us! And she is looking good! Gauri is hip and trendy in a masculine pants worn with a very feminine halter top. I just hope she keeps it up.
Farah also looks trendy in her slim cigarette pants worn with a loose white top and teamed with red clutch and red lips. Not sure about her hairstyle - I think its too teenagerish for such a sophisticated outfit.

Who: Rani Mukherjee, Genelia D'souza, Sonali Bendre
Where: Shahid Bday bash

Rani - Whoa, why is she so orange?Is she preparing to be a pumpkin in her next movie?
Genelia - Lacy leggings with a sheer blouse?? No one is that cute enough to make such an outfit work!
Sonali - She is having a serious relationship with bib necklaces and I am not complaining!

Airport Style - Black leggings

Who: Kareena Kapoor, Hilary Duff, Lauren Conrad

Who: Nicole Ritchie, Jessica Simpson, Kate Beckinsale

Who: Kim Kardashian, Kate Beckinsale, Clemence Posey

I know what I am wearing on my next flight! Don't they all look so glam?!?

Spotted around town

Who: Kangana Ranuat
Where: "Tanu weds Manu" promos on "Jhalka Dikhla ja"

Nice! Kangana wore a bright, colorful anarkali while promoting her new movie. I love the jeweled neckline and for once Kangana doesnt have the "rolled out of bed" hair and makeup. The dress looks a little OTT but its anyday better than what Kangana usually wears!

Who: Rani Mukerjee
Where: Indian Stroke association event

I am crazy about pencil skirts - they are truly versatile and always trendy! They look good on all shapes and sizes if worn and accessorized properly. A must-have in every closet.
Rani paired her pencil skirt with a slightly loose, lace top for a clean, simple look.

Who: Ramona Narang, Madhoo
Where: Laila Khan furniture shop opening

Color contrast - yellow with blue or blue with reddish-pink? I am with Madhoo on this one.

Who: Sangeeta Bijlani
Where: Laila Khan furniture shop opening

One penguin to another: "Dude, I think I have found my soul mate!I am in love!"

Red hot

Who: Kareena Kapoor
Where: Unveiling of Stardust issue

Stunning. Kareena is absolutely slamming in this sari-inspired gown! The draping is just divine and the dress accentuates her drool-worthy curves. When you want to make a statement you cant go wrong in red!

All in a day's work

Who: Kangana Ranuat
Where: "Tanu weds Manu" promotions

A polka dot blouse is the perfect perky complement to Kangana's perky "girls". The quirky pants are also cute but worn together and with some wild hair thrown in, make Kangana look like one hot mess!!
Kangana went for a tailored grey/brown combo for her next appearance but her whole outfit looks dull and I don't like the way her pants are tucked into her shoes.
I think the poor Gucci bag is trying to hide its face:-)

I really love my...

Who: Shilpa Shetty
Where: Araish Exhibition, FCCI wellness seminar

.. Vivenne Westwood Lady Dragon slingbacks! Those globes on the shoes are really hypnotizing- they seem to be calling my name:-)
The first outfit is too color-coordinated and the second outfit has put me off white jackets/blazers for ever!

Style roundup

Who: Amrita Arora, Raageshwari, Akanksha Malhotra, Namrata Barua
Where: Araish Exhibition

All four wore the most basic of outfits - jeans + white top but added instant glamor with $$$ designer bags. Love the color of the Kelley bag but also like brown against white (Raageshwari) and Amrita's top is cute..Well, I cant decide which look I like best!

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: At a wedding

This one is easy. Love the color combination, hate the pant style.

Who: Preity Zinta
Where: Adolfo Dominguez Store launch

Preity wore a black drop-down waist dress with a silver bow and red pumps to a store launch. Curly hair and heavy eyeliner completed the look. She will always look gorgeous to me but I cant help but notice that her skirt is crumpled and the fitting around her waist is little off:(

Who: Ayesha Thapar, Anupama Dayal
Where: Adolfo Dominguez Store launch

Ayesha - Dreamy, romantic dress paired with red lips and gold peep-toes. Perfect.
Anupama -Love the pairing of a tailored leather jacket with a floaty chiffon dress. The shoes just don't work for me. Its one more element fighting for attention.

Who: Sonakshi Sinha, Katrina Kaif, Chitrangada Singh

Who: Urmila, Urmila, Malaika Arora Khan

The good and the ugly

Who: Raageshwari
Where: At a comedy play presented by Jet airways

Isn't that skirt divine? Love the unusual print/embroidery on it. Raageshwari paired the dress with a silver BV and silver pumps. Not sure why she choose silver, would have preferred white peep-toes and deep blue clutch. Her hair looks weird too, so lets just admire the skirt and leave it at that.

Who: Shazahn Padamsee, Sophie Choudry
Where: Dr Rashmi Shetty party, Valentine's day party

Two great floral outfits - one for the day and one for night. Like Shazahn's better becoz of the vintage-y print.

Who: Esha Koppikar
Where: At a comedy play presented by Jet airway

All I see is the red Birkin. Esha's outfit doesn't live up-to the dramatic red Hermes. The way to fix this is to take it off and put something else on:-)

Anushka on Koffee with Karan

Anushka wore a cute printed dress to the show. The dress is given some sex appeal with a deep V neckline, while a fitted waist further accents her figure. She paired the dress with blush-colored t-straps which highlight the pink in her dress. Anushka appeared on the show alongside her co-star from her last hit movie, "Band Baaja Baaraat". Very predictable look (loose, casual hair and short dress is her trademark) , but I like.

I really love my...

Who: Shazahn Padamsee
Where: Shabana's Azmi bday party, Gitanjali store

..stripes and floral dress. Shazahn first wore this dress with red slingbacks and brown clutch. On the next outing, she paired the dress with black accessories. I like it with black accessories but would have preferred a smaller clutch. Which way did you like it?

Who: Priyanka Chopra
Where: Airport style bomber jacket, jeans and sneakers. Looks like this is Priyanka's travel uniform as both times she was spotted in this outfit at the airport. At least she changed her tee:P

Spotted around town.

Who: Priyanka Chopra
Where: "Saat Khoon Maaf" promos

We have been seeing this silhouette a lot lately and I have mixed feelings about it. It always looks like the person has tied a cape around the waist. The color is beautiful against her skin tone and the shoes also work but it will take me sometime to get around this style.

Who: Sushmita Sen
Where: Marigold Fine art event

Havent seen the fabulous Ms Sen in a long time. Love her chic outfit - the black accent at the waist gives definition to the look and totally elevates it. This kind of clean, streamlined silhouette looks best with simple, unfussy shoes.

Who: Chitrangada Singh
Where: "Lets Design" finals

Its great to see celebs embracing bright bold colors. Chitrangada looks gorgeous in a red, strapless grecian gown. The only issue with this style is that you look pregnant if the photographer catches you at the wrong angle!

Who: Neha Dhupia
Where: Elle cup and IIFA promotional event

Neha in a lace dress at an event. I am trying to figure out whats goin on near her neck area. It looks very clumsy and spoils the dress. Doesn't the reflection in her sunglasses give her alien eyes?

Who: Shradda Kapoor
Where: Elle cup and IIFA promotional event

Bold color, great dress and an overpowering hairstyle! The ends of her plait looks like rat tails and all I can think about is that she has some dead animal on her head!!

Red Carpet Event: Global Indian Flim and Television awards

Who: Prachi Desai, Sridevi

From her hair to her clutch to her gown color, everything is a winner here. Prachi looks fresh-faced and effortlessly polished. One of her best looks.
Sridevi is top-heavy and all this dress does is draw attention to her boobs. It looks like she is trying to cut off the circulation to her bust!! Great color, great dress but terrible fitting on the top.

Who: Sonali Bendre, Shriya Saran

Both sarees are stellar. Love Sonali's look better becoz of her top/blouse. You don't have to show a whole lot of skin to look good.

Who: Kajol, Zarine Khan

Kajol in a Manish Malhotra anarkali. Finally, she wore something that looks good on her!
Zarine Khan went for a fitted black/white anarkali and looks like she holding her breath:-) Does her outfit work for you or do you see Zebras?

Who: Vidya Balan, Mugdha Godse

Feeling no love for either of the two outfits.

Who: Ekta Kapoor

This is not a bad outfit for relaxing on a beach resort. For the red carpet, Ekta needs to ditch those ugly shoes and pretty much change into another dress:P

What do you wear to a Bryan Adams concert?

Who: Deepika Padukone, Preity Zinta

Deepika and Preity went for a laid-back, causal look in jeans, tee and shoes. Both look great and I love their hairstyles.

Who: Rani Mukerjee, Madhoo, Amrita Rao

Rani, Madhoo and Amrita upgraded their basic jeans with some glitter and sequins. Not bad, but a clutch to a concert??

Who: Anushka Sharma, Minissha Lamba

Anushka went for a tights + blazer combo and Minissha opted for a tulip skirt paired with a tee.
I like when people mix black and brown but the shoes look a little off with the outfit.
The colors of Minissha's outfit are pretty but am not a big fan of skirts at rock concerts.
