Looks of the day

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: "Thank you" promos in Dubai

Beautiful colors, great accessories and glossy hair cant hide the fact that the dress looks like a fancy window dressing. I bet the drawstring around Sonam's neck can be used to lower or hike up the hemline like the window dressing it so resembles:P

Who: Lara Dutta
Where: "Challo Dilli" first look

I like this from the waist up. The hair and makeup are lovely, as is the color of the jumpsuit. The gold belt adds a glam touch. If this were a dress, I would have loved it. Of course, because it’s a jumpsuit, I just can’t fully embrace it.

Who: Shraddha Kapoor
Where: Y Films for youth launch

Shraddha is looking very chic and classy in the black brocade skirt( Zara??) and red top. I do like the socks but cant make up my mind regarding the shoes. What do you think - do the shoes make or break the outfit?

Who: Sarah Jane Dias
Where: "Game" promos

Sarah in a hot pink dress with blue shoes and white clutch. I think the blue shoes was a great idea but not happy with the execution. Some other style maybe??

Who: Madhuri Dixit
Where: "Maha Challenge"

Graceful as ever!

Blue Reign

Who: Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon
Where: At the semi-final screening at Shahrukh's Mannat

Both, Karisma and Raveena, wore blue to support the Indian Cricket team at the Cricket World cup semi-finals. Karisma went the comfy route with velour jumpsuit and a drool-worthy blue Birkin. Raveena was polished in a silk shirt with jeans. I think they both look lovely. If India had lost, I am sure I would have said something else;-)

Who: Amrita Rao, Rani Mukherjee
Where: "Love U..Mr Kalakaar" promots, Novotel hotel

Amrita's dress is cute but I think its a wee bit long. Rani's dress is trendy but she has styled it pretty badly. Silver jewelry would have worked better than pearls and the hairstyle is just very un-sophisticated!

Who: Anushka Sharma, Suzanne Roshan
Where: Parachute oil shoot, At the semi-final screening at Shahrukh's Mannat

You really cant go wrong with blue and white skinny jeans, can you? Well, they both did with bad footwear. Ankle up, yay. Shoes, nay!

Magazine Covers - April 2011

Grazia - Kareena Kapoor
Marie Claire - Genelia D'Souza
Vogue - Ashika Pratt
Harper's Bazaar - Giselle Monterio

Kareena in Dolce & Gabanna S/S 2011 which is pretty similar (not the same) to what Giselle wore for the Vogue April 2011 (French) cover. She has minimal makeup and looks fresh. I like her cute pose but the background is a letdown! Grazia does a lot of these multi-shaded backgrounds which never work for me.

On the other hand, I love the Marie Claire yellow background and the colors of Genelia's outfit. The cover is like a color block effect. Only wish everyone would stop posing like Sonam Kapoor.

The Vogue and Harper Bazaar cover are the best covers I have seen in a loong time. Both, Ashika and Giselle kick ass and make me wanna grab the issue and hit the gym:-) What I also liked was that the mastheads are the same color as the outfits. It kind of pulls the covers together.

Now, a sneak peek into Glamour, US May 2011 edition. Glamour has put "three of Hollywood's biggest rising stars" (Glamour's words, not mine) Emma Stone, Freida Pinto, and Ashley Greene on three different covers. Freida is wearing Peter Som. Flirty!!

Which cover did you like best?

Weekend Roundup

Who: Aishwarya Rai
Where: FICCI Frames 2011 awards

Love the soft pink color but the saree isnt very striking or glamorous. Her pink makeup is perfect with the outfit.

Who: Vidya Balan
Where: FICCI Frames 2011 awards

I have given up hope of seeing Vidya in anything other than Sabyasachi but its good to see her in a color other than red or white. The green is stunning and the outfit is like a visual punch to the eyes. She needs to fire her makeup artist since the foundation isnt the right color and the yellow bindi is a really bad idea.

Who: Sonakshi Sinha
Where: FICCI Frames 2011 awards, FICCI Frames 2011 press conference

After the pleated shorts disaster last week, Sonakshi redeems herself in these two outfits. She is elegant in the white/gold outfit. Her printed blue/white outfit is just "wow"!! Love, love!! And her side plait gives her a youthful look. My only complaint - such a beautiful dress requires sky high stilettos :-)

Who: Kiran Rao
Where: FICCI Frames 2011 conference

Ha, Kiran decided to dress like a "normal" person! Have to say I like it!! Hopefully, she will return to her old style otherwise I will have to no one to make fun off:-) wait, we still have the Celinas and the Ameeshas...

Who: Malaika Arora Khan, Amrita Arora
Where: Polo match

I think the two sisters have great potential as con artists. One can dazzle and blind everyone with her age-defying hot body and the other can carry out the crime. Don't you think? I mean, was anyone looking at the horses at this match? Do they even remember which horse won??

Who: Amrita Rao
Where: Somewhere over the weekend

Fab or Fugly?

A post of few words...

Who: Anushka Sharma
Where: FICCI 2011 inaugration

Love the color but the silver embellishments give it an El Cheapo look. Perfect for a raunchy onscreen item number:-)

Who: Kangana Ranaut
Where: "Game" Promos

A beautiful, summery dress completely spoiled by Kangana's choice of shoes.

Who: Tisca Chopra
Where: Shaina NC Jewellery launch

Love the clutch and shoes but the dress is like a shapeless sack. Even the addition of belt doesnt help.

Who: Amrita Puri
Where: UTV bindass new show

Stunning color, cute smile and perfect shoes. Black shoes would have looked very harsh.

Who: Soha Ali Khan, Celina Jaitely
Where: Does anyone care?

The blazer+jeans combo is nothing new but the stripes t-shirt reminds me of prison uniform. Doesnt work for me.
Great dress, atrocious makeup! Celina looks ghastly! New witch in town??

Looks of the day

Who: Vidya Balan
Where: WWF event

Vidya wore a multi-colored anarkali which is kinda growing on me. I mean, I dont think I will wear this rainbow dress but she looks graceful and carries it off pretty well.

Has her nose been always this big? or is it a bad pic?

Who: Sonakshi Sinha
Where: Provogue event

Sonakshi signed on as a female brand ambassador for Provogue today.
Seriously, who will take fashion advice from someone who has a front wedgie? How difficult is it to fit shorts that fit you well? or is it the case of "I-need-to-pee-real-bad"?? hmmm..
(Her orange face is not a bronzer overdose but case of bad lighting.)

Who: Kangana Ranaut
Where: At her birthday party

Speaking of orange color, whats more orange - Kangana's hair or her cute dress? I hope someone gifted her the phone number of a good hair colorist!

Spotted around town

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: Sameer Dattani's wedding

Looks like color blocking is on everyone's mind! Sonam wore a bright and loud saree that beautifully demonstrates the use of contrasting colors to create a color block outfit that screams Spring ( and Holi)! Her hair and makeup is also perfect and I like the wrinkled effect in the fabric.
Sonam is wearing Masaba.

Who: Jacqueline Fernandez
Where: Akanksha NGO event

Another color-block outfit (Masaba??). The colors are on the cooler side in this outfit and the top is very boho-chic but something is off. Not sure if its the length of the top or the style of the pants.

Who: Avantika and Imran Khan
Where: Sameer Dattani's wedding, Svenska dinner party

Great taste in men, terrible when it comes to clothes:P

How do you wear your Tod bag?

Who: Deepika Padukone, Sophie Choudry, Kiran Rao

Who: Suzzane Roshan, Tisca Chopra, Zoe Saldana

Who:Debra Messing, Angie Harmon, Diane Kruger

Who wore it better? Red wrap around dress

Who: Sarah Jane, Raageshwari
Where: Force India event, Swarovski dinner event

I like red with gold as well as red with black but don't like Sarah's shoes or her messy hair. Raageshwari does look all pretty and demure in her outfit but Sarah's lipcolor is perfect with the dress..Tough choice!!

This is for you - Japan

We all watched in horror as waves of destruction swept over Japan. And even though we can't undo this horrific event, we all can try and help the recovery. We may be divided by geographic lines but we all belong to the same race (the human race). All for one. One for all.

Tomorrow, I will be participating in this very special event set up by Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours to help raise awareness and funds for Japan. We are observing a day of silence - no blog posts on Friday. Let's do whatever possible, however small to help our friends in Japan. Even prayers will do.

To donate, go to Shelter Box via For Japan with Love, or to the Red Cross, here or here.

(Do check with your company HR website if they do company matching.)

Spotted around town

Who: Priyanka Chopra
Where: Nikon Coolpix camera launch

Genie Pants Jumpsuit - didnt even know these things existed! They do look comfy but peeing is going to be a major pain, no? Anyways, I digress...Back to Piggy Chops - love the necklace. The shoes are pretty too but look a little discordant with this outfit. Her foundation is the wrong shade, too.

Who: Monikangana Dutta
Where: At Neeta Lulla store

Please tell me how is this girl a model??
Are there no mirrors in her house?? If Priyanka overloaded on her foundation, Ms. Dutta skipped hers. And hon, blotting paper is available in most places - invest in it.

Who: Preity Zinta, Deepika Padukone, Guest at LFW 2011

Who rocked the trilby hat? A rhetorical question, no? Preity!!!

Who: Amrita Arora, Suzanne Roshan
Where: Paul and Shark launch

Who rocked the black/blue combination? This you can answer truthfully without any fear of retribution;-)

Celebs at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2011

Who: Bipasha Basu

I like Bipasha's new long hair - it gives her a softer look. The color of the dress is so fresh and I like her choice of shoes. The fit of the dress esp. near the upper body is a little off as it gives her a slouchy look. Either that or she skipped wearing a bra:P

Who: Tisca Chopra

Tisca is perfectly polished in an asymmetrical floral dress paired with an orange Balenciaga clutch. The orange bag helps pull the orange in the dress and provides a nice visual contrast . Her hairstyle adds to the sleek sophisticated look. I like!

Who: Sarah Jane Diaz

Suddenly, she is everywhere, no? The grey masculine pants are so cool but not sure if its the length or her shoes that totally spoil the look.

Who: Raageshwari

Raageshwari in a Satya Paul dress from last year's collection. Is it too early to make my X'mas wish list? I am completely drooling over this dress.

Who: Sabine Chopra

Sabine continues her adventure in Sabyasachi-land. I am a big fan of exposed zippers craze but not the fly zipper!! That is just eeeww..And did Sabyasachi gift her his entire collection??

Who: Suzanne Roshan, Minissha Lamba

That is one dull, boring dress on Suzanne. Minissha is slightly better becoz of the belt detail and her bright red shoes.
