Karisma Kapoor on Verve

Karisma Kapoor graces the cover of the latest issue of Verve magazine in the infamous Shantanu Nikhil dress! Think she looks lovely!

Spotted both Neha Dhupia and Anjana Sukhani (respectively in this order) in the same tie-dye dress. Will swap Anjana's pic for a full length version as soon as I find one. Source, Source

Taking matching to the next level

Don't know about you but I for one ain't going to follow in the footsteps of designer Malini Ramani going to the extreme of wearing a dress and bag made of the same fabric!

Neha Dhupia & Dia Mirza for Shantanu-Nikhil

Neha and Dia sashayed down the runway for designer duo Shantanu-Nikhil at the Chivas Regal Grand Finale. I'm not digging either of these two outfits. What about you?

Vikram Phadnis at Chivas Regal Fashion Week

Here's a few pieces from Vikram Phadnis's collection at Chivas Regal Fashion Week. The designer also had actor Minnisha Lamba walk the ramp for him in keeping with the tradition of having Bollywood celebs on the runway.

Minnisha Lamba walked the ramp for designer Vikram Phadnis on day 2 of the Chivas Regal Fashion Week. Personally the dress looks a bit too rich and I found other pieces from the collection much better. What about you? Source

Farhan Akhtar rocks on the cover of Andpersand

The mega talented Farhan Akhtar is featured on the cover of the September issue of lifestyle mag Anderpersand.

Rohit Bal at Chivas Fashion Week

It's no easy task to deliver two distinct collections in the same month! Here's a look at Rohit Bal's collection at Chivas Regal Fashion Week where Karan Johar also walked the ramp for Bal. Do you prefer the HDIL collection to this or vice-versa? I like pieces from both so I can't decide - loving the floor length maxi number with the cape from this one. What about you?

Karan Johar for Rohit Bal

The fashion season continues with now Karan Johar walking the ramp for Rohit Bal's show at the Chivas Regal Fashion Week.

Bling it up with Louis

Akshay blings up a rather drab outfit at the CNBC Awaaz ConsumerAwards with his hot metallic Louis Vuitton loafers which he previously strutted the catwalk in at the Levi's 501 "unbuttoned" launch.
Wife Twinkle who came out to support hubby more than compensated for hubby's drab outfit with another chic dress teamed with yet another large sized clutch. This lass sticks to looks that she knows works super well for her.

People Magazine - October issue

Here's a dekho at the cover of the latest issue of the Indian People Magazine. The cover has pictures of Dia Mirza and Deepika Padukon from the 08 IIFA awards and the recent appearance of Preity Zinta at the Toroto International Film Festival.

Shilpa who is usually seen in ethnic creations by Tarun Tahiliani opts for a Manish Malhotra sari to interview Abhishek Bachchan on TV show Big Boss. With a body and height like hers she looks absolutely fantastic and gives many a complex! Source, Source

More of Aishwarya from Vogue's glamour issue

Aishwarya has definitely upped the ante with this amazing Vogue photo shoot for their anniversary issue. The shoot was photographed by ace lensman Farrokh Chothia and styled by renowned bollywood stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania. Love love love it!

Aishwarya Rai in Vogue

Here's a look at the latest cover of Vogue India where Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looks super divine in a Christian Dior couture gown from their Fall 08 collection. Rai has a penchant for Dior gowns and Chanel jackets; you may remember seeing her in a red Dior gown at the 08 IIFAs where she looked equally glam. Think the cover looks fab!

Not working girlfriend

This outfit is just not working for me. Your thoughts?

Blinded by red

Surely the dress code at the music launch of upcoming movie Hello didn't state "head to toe" red. This outfit (for the lack of a better word) is very un-Amrita Arora like. What is it anyways - a floor length gown teamed with the dupatta of Amrita's favourite red suit or is it actually a salwaar kameez and Amrita had run out of time to get the length altered or perhaps she's trying to start a new trend of strange garb! Either ways its not working - the clutch is a Gucci mirror which was released last year but even that's not saving the outfit. Got a feeling that the pumps are Manolos but as I can't see them clearly due to the nature of this outfit can't tell for sure. Will look for some more pics to see if I can identify the shoes.

In the name of the father

Love love love the t-shirt Abhishek Bachchan is wearing in this picture which is currently up on Amitabh Bachchan's blog. I'm a huge Amitabh fan so I want one of these now. Please someone tell me that these tees are for sale. Call me daggy but I'll happily wear this tee with my new Sass n Bide black rats any day - in the name of Amitabh!

India Couture Week finale - Rohit Bal show

Apologies for the delay in posting about Rohit Bal's show which finished off the first ever India Couture Week on a total high. Instead of the usual bollywood celebs Bal showcased a sherwani befitted for a king on Olympic hero Vijender Kumar. The same sherwani was seen on Akshay Kumar in the Singh is Kinng. The collection was total couture and Bal has certainly raised the mark for his contemporaries.

The tiering continues

Twinkle we know you love your tiered dresses and look absolutely fab in them but this is three outfits in the span of a couple of months now which look almost identical. Perhaps take a leaf out of hubby Akki's style book and experiment a little bit the next time around! Sure you are capable of pulling of other silhouttes with equal elan and ease.

Manish Malhotra's collection at ICW

Loving Manish Malhotra's very wearable collection on the final day of India Couture Week. I'm off to India in four weeks for a much awaited holiday (and to attend weddings in the family!) and will certainly be taking these pics to my local darzi for inspiration ;) Especially loving the anarkali in the second pic.

Varun Bahl's collection at India Couture Week

Here's a look at the first few pics released of the Varun Bahl show on day 5 of India Couture Week. The styling bears an uncanny resemblance to Vallaya's collection in particular the feather fascinators and capes replace the fur boleros that Vallaya used. Your thoughts?

Sonam Kapoor - v model chic

Love Sonam Kapoor's ensemble at the Pallavi Jaikishan show which is very much inspired by the young models of the international runways like Jemma Ward and Agnes B.
Are you loving the look as much as I am?

A Big Thank You!

A big thank you to my darling hubby for designing my blog's lovely new header :) Would love to hear from my readers about what you think of the new look.

Fugly to the maximo

Oh my! Where does one start with this one. First you fumble in the dark and mistake a kurta for a dress and then you wear these stockings (it is debatable if this is the right term for these strange cut off things) with the chunkiest possible brick like open toe wedge heels! No sane woman should put her self through this even within the comforts of their boudoir leave alone at a high profile event! This TV mogul needs all stylists to come to her rescue right now!
