More Louis action at the Rock On premiere

Farah Khan was next in line carrying a Louis Vuitton bag after spotting a Louis Vuitton Manhattan GM on Isha Koppikar. The style that Farah is carrying is called the Mahina XXL. Wonder why she needed to carry such an oversized bag to attend a movie premiere! Love the bag nevertheless.

Give it up for Isha

Well done Isha Koppikar on the much needed speedy transformation! I really don't know what to say about her "look" (for the lack of a better word) at the Big FM appearance earlier on the week but I'm sure that word has got around to her already and hence the Cinderella like makeover at the "Rock On" premiere where she teams pin stripe wide leg pants with a fitted white shirt and finishes of the look with a Louis Vuitton Manhattan GM. Whilst the look is more suited for a work meeting than attending a movie premiere I'm just delighted at seeing the shift in her dress sense making it totally applause worthy!

Bhavna Pandey at the Rock On Premiere

Bhavna Pandey (Chunkey Pandey's better half) looked fab at the "Rock On" premiere in a T-Bags jersey maxi dress. It's more than a bargain at the sale price of USD $142.80 @ Saks online! Saks Fifth Avenue also offers worldwide shipping.

Chunkey Pandey failed miserably trying to be in sync with Bhavna - the lab coat like white jacket and the tacky hawaiin tee looked absolutely hideous!

Divya Khosla in Bebe

Our desi socialites can't get enough of US chain store Bebe. Divya Khosla seen in the Bebe rose garden jersey halter neck dress along with a patent black D&G clutch at the premiere of Rock On. Personally prefer the red/pink version of this dress.
This dress is no longer available for sale but get your bebe fix by checking out their newest arrivals.

Geeta Basra's white obsession

What's with Geeta Basra's obsession with white? Three consecutive public appearances in white ensembles. The realisation has probably started to dawn on her though as outfit number three on the extreme right has a bit of yellow sprinkled through it. Maybe she's slowly moving across the colour spectrum. Stay tuned to see what colour the next outfit would be!

Vidya Balan walks the ramp

Finally Vidya Balan gets it right in this gorgeous Anarkali creation by designer duo Priya & Chintan. The fit and the colours really suit her. Hopefully she takes some advise from these immensely talented designers now for her onscreen ensembles as well.

Amisha Patel looking fabulous in Meghan Fabulous!

Amongst the glitterati at Ritesh Sindhwani's birthday party Amisha shined in this fabulous Meghan Fabulous creation. Love the no accessory look so that the dress is the focal point with the breezy hair do.

Akshay Kumar's hot Louis Vuitton metallic loafers

Absolutely love Akshay Kumar's metallic Louis Vuitton Monte Carlo loafers that he was seen wearing at the Levi's 501 "Live Unbuttoned" launch. In case if you haven't already, don't forget to check out pics from the press shoot for the campaign where Akki looks equally hot sans the Louis loafers.

Rani Mukherjee's rare public appearance - hit or miss ?

Rani made a rare public appearance at Bhavna Somaiya's book launch unfortunately not dressed to impress. What I absolutely love about Rani is her love and endorsement of our desi designers in times when everyone else in the industry is dressed head to toe by international design houses.
Having said that though I am a bit disappointed with this rather drab suit. Rani loves wearing Sabyasachi and who doesn't love a Sabyasachi creation. Very much doubt it that this is one from his repertoire !
What do you think of Rani's look - hit or miss?

Priyanka Chopra on the cover of Vogue India

Check out Priyanka Chopra on the cover of the September issue of Vogue India in a new look. I think she looks great with the short hair do and the cover is very much on par with the publication's international much earlier established versions.
What do you think of Priyanka's look and the mag's cover?

Shilpa Shetty in Juicy Couture

Shilpa Shetty seen rehearsing for the UK leg of the Unforgettable Tour in a Juicy Couture velour tracksuit. Juicy Couture trackies are a huge rage in the US and are a favourite with Hollywood celebrities like Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton.
Shilpa is not far behnd her Hollywood counterparts as seen in this pic sporting one of the latest Juicy velour creations. The plum colour really suits her and I love the butterfly graphic with the glitter embellishment!
The same tracksuit is available for sale at Shopbop
Warning! These suits can be addictive so buy your first one at your own risk ;)

Can it go any worse?

I have no idea who this is and maybe that's a good thing! But here's a pic of this scary someone from the red carpet at the Maxim Hot 100 Bash. Can it possible go any worse - with the flouro pink dress, uncombed hair in dire need of colour touchup, burgundy lipstick and all of this teamed with ethnic Indian bangles and slip on mules!! She's also seen schmoozing with Deepika Padukone at the event so it is safe to assume that she has the moolah to hire a stylist! Does anyone know who this is?

Akshay Kumar's Levis campaign - Kinng's in da house

Here are some pics of Akki from the latest Levis campaign shot in USA . Seen here with US supermodel Sara. Riding high on the success of Singh is Kinng he's recently been signed on as brand ambassador for Levis. I'll just let the pics do the talking on this one :)
Is this really the man who turned 40 a few months ago??

Who wore it better - Deepika or Bipasha ?

Bipasha and Deepika were seen at a recent press junket to promote their latest film Bachna Ae Haseeno in their weekend denims.
I don't absolutely love either of the two looks but if I had to pick I'll go for Bipasha with the fitted skinny jeans and the classic white shirt as I'm not a big fan of the head to toe coordinating Deepika's done with the matching headband, t-shirt and jeans.
Who do you think looks better of the two?

And the psychedelics keep coming...

In close tow to Amisha Patel is Raveena Tandon in an equally dismal psychedelic print top. The cut is quite flattering on her but surely there were more options to choose from than going with this!
Just looking at the photo alone is making me dizzy!
Who do you think looks worse - Raveena or Amisha? Check out my post below to see Amisha's outfit.

Amisha Patel's psychedelic avtaar

Oh my! Never thought I would see this day after Amisha's makeover in Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic where she's seen in figure hugging belted dresses talking about Gucci and Prada bags!
A far cry from her character in the film is this horribly gone wrong outfit she was seen sporting at the 08 Comedy Awards.
I don't know where to start but I am trully disappointed with her stylist or lack of one for picking this pschedelic dress with the jarring floral print.
I know florals are in but rather than picking up something from the street markets of Thailand perhaps think of turning to the ever reliable Dolce & Gabbana who are showcasing some divine floral creations in their current collections; one of my favourites featured below Amisha's pic and available for purchase through Neiman Marcus.

Spotted - Christian Louboutin on Malaika Arora Khan

The absolutely divine Christian Louboutin black knotted pumps were spotted on the ever so chic Malaika Arora Khan. Loubies are inevitably the most sought after shoes by celebs worldwide with their signature red soles.
The style spotted on Malaika is from last season so your chances of getting one are probably only from Ebay.
Here are some recommendations from the current Louboutin collection for Malaika's shoe collection just in case she doesn't already own these ;) . Both these styles are currently available from Neiman Marcus and Saks .Both these department stores offer worldwide shipping too!

Bipasha takes inspiration from Bachna for Reebok

The above shot is from the latest Reebok commercial that teams Bips with Yuvraj Singh The styling for the Reebok ad is very much inspired from Bipasha's look in the first half of Bachna Ae Haseeno where she's seen wearing shorts and singlets teamed with vibrant accessories; my favourite being the red corsage she's wearing in the rain shot.
I love her look in the second half of the film even more where she's seen effortlessly channeling a desi Naomi Campbell complete with super lux gowns, holidaying in Italy and personal assistants working round the clock. I'm trying to find images of her outfits from the second half of the film but haven't had any luck so far.
Does anyone know where I can find some?

The couple that shops together ...lives happily ever after

Maybe this is what Kareena and Saif were thinking when they brought matching "Respect your mother" tees. The most talked about Bollywood couple have been spotted wearing them on a couple of occasions now (thankfully not together! ) doing their bit for global warming!

Who wears it better - Lara or Sonam??

Recently both Lara and Sonam were recently spotted (at separate occasions ofcourse!) wearing uncannily similar outfits. Both dresses are in similar hues of purple with the same ruffled neckline, sleeves and length.
Sonam's dress is a 3.1 Phillip Lim creation but I'm not entirely sure if the same is true for Lara's as it does seem a little bit more fitted than Sonam's. Or perhaps Lara just opted for a smaller size to give it a more fitted look!
Lara looks very ladylike in the fitted version which is perfect for the Rajiv Gandhi awards function that she attended. Sonam puts her own arty spin with the two strap headband making it the perfect look to be seen in at an art expo.
Both ladies finished off their looks with must have metallic clutches!
Which is your favourite?

Bomber chic - not quite!

What's with the lady with the million dollar smile wearing the most unflattering jacket on the planet!! Seems Madhuri Dixit decided to raid hubby's wardrobe and went for this oversized leather jacket which is doing her no favours at all.
Fitted leather jackets are all the rage currently and will continue to be over the year. For the fashionistas who are thinking of adding one to their wardrobe my recommendation is to steer clear of the style seen on Madhuri and go for this super soft Catherine Malandrino creation available from Team this with a basic white singlet, your favourite pair of skinny jeans and ballet flats and you are set to go :)

Preity flaunts Chanel

Couldn't resist posting this one due to my love for this Chanel classic.
Seen here is Preity out and about in LA during the Unforgettable tour flaunting my favourite classic Chanel quilted handbag. Not too sure about the outfit though with the safari style shirt and the ill fitted skirt! Chanel truly saves the day!
Would love to hear your thoughts on the outfit...

Elle Belle - Sonam Kappor

What's not to love about Sonam Kapoor featured on the cover of the latest edition of Elle India in eclectic green.
My other favourite pic from the magazine is this take on Marilyn Monroe in a Nakul Sen beaded black dress fit for the red carpet.
Sonam carries it with elan and adds her own stamp with her signature black nails.

Bollywood loves Bebe ruffle shirts!

It's no secret that our fav celebs are fans of the US cult chain store Bebe. I'm a big fan of Bebe myself for their distinctive and very stylish fashion at excellent value for money! Recently both Priyanka and Bips were spotted in the classic Bebe ruffle shirts which are extremely versatile to team with your skinny jeans and also perfect for work with a classic pencil skirt. Whilst Priyanka looks as if she had run out of time to get her hair styled I am equally disappointed with Bipasha's new hair cut and the red coloured fringe! To score one of these ruffle shirs check out! can help with organising shipping from bebe if you are based outside US.

Bachna Ae Haseeno - Deepika's hot DVF gown

Welcome to my first blog :)
Watched the movie Bachna Ae Haseeno last night- a visual delight not only for the exotic locales and Ranbir Kapoor but also the stunning designs that adorn the three leading ladies.
One of my favourites is the beautiful Diane Von Furstenberg gown that Deepika wears in one of the songs. The 100% silk Lipari gown has a tropical Birds of Paradise print all over it and is equisitely cut. As with all things chic this beautiful gown is now sold out worldwide but you can still score one on ebay at a fraction of the retail price!
