In Falguni and Shane Peacock

She's walked for the designer duo before at India Fashion Week and now Sameera Reddy graced Bungalow 127 at Kemps Corner in a floor length outfit by Falguni and Shane Peacock. Think the dress looks great on her and the colour is perfect against her skin tone.

Cost saving in times of recession

Bollywood celeb mags Jade (Nov 08) and Cineblitz (Jan 09) shared a photo shoot and almost identical pics of Deepika Padukone for their cover shots (thanks Bollywood Fashion Police for covering). And yes, its the same Shantanu-Nikhil lehenga that Deepika wore to the Toronto premiere of Chandni Chowk to China. The film bombed but glad to see that Deepika got the worth out of her designer lehenga by recycling it umpteen times.

In Shantanu-Nikhil again

When you like something you buy one in every colour seems to be Neha Dhupia's style mantra. She wore the same Shantanu-Nikhil maxi dress in red at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. Now she dons it in pink at the 'Helios' store launch in Bangalore - what colour do you think the dress looks best in?

P.S Could use some help in finding a full length shot of the dress.

Feeling patriotic

Your take on Mandira Bedi's super patriotic tri- coloured sari?

I'm usually not one in favour for ensembles resembling flags but I do like this one because the orange and the green are not over powering. It looks like a Satya Paul creation. Mandira Bedi Tri colour India flag sari saree source

Of flowers and stripes

Is it just me or both these outfits look very similar - with the flowers and the striped pattern?

Hot pants

Certainly not for the faint hearted or the conservative dresser; but if you are digging Kareena Kapoor's gold sequined hot pants you can get your fix with these Anna Sui Paillette embellished shorts . Kareena Kapoor Billu Barber Shahrukh Khan Anna Sui gold shorts

A vision in white or not?

Raima Sen walked for Rocky S at the 09 Gitanjali Style Fest. Whilst an all white ensemble is great for scorching hot summers I don't think this one is very well suited to Raima; makes her look short and stout.

Slumdog cast at 09 SAG awards

The Slumdog cast (Freida Pinto, Dev Patel and Anil Kapoor) came out dressed in their finest at the 09 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Here's a dekho, I'm ofcourse drooling over Freida's light purple gown!The minute I saw this gown knew it was a signature Marchesa which has now been confirmed by justjared who report that the gown is indeed by Marchesa, her clutch is by Roger Vivier and jewels by Martin Katz.

Update - Thanks 'anonymous' for letting us know that Malaika's maxi is by Bebe - not suprised as she's been seen in the chain store's creations on many occassions before. Found the dress in purple on ebay. What colour do you prefer it more in?

After some very questionable outfits recently (check them here and here) Malaika gets slight redemption in this maxi dress at a photoshoot. I have seen this dress before but can't remember the designer - as soon as I remember I'll update the post with details.

How to rock a premiere

I have always been partial to the asymmetrical one shouldered dresses (have countless in my wardrobe!) and this is truly fab; frills in the right shade and lurving the super hot heels!

On reader request - Preity's look at Slumdog premiere

One of my regular readers has requested that I do a post on Preity Zinta's look at the Slumdog premiere in Mumbai. So here we go..

The outfit certainly adheres to the dress code which I assume was black tie as there were lots of sightings in the traditional black tie colours of black and white. It fits her well and she carries it with aplomb like everything else; but I do think she went a tad too conservative as well. Your thoughts?

Bag spotting

Spotted Sonam Kapoor carrying a classic Marc Jacobs stam bag to the 54th Filmfare Awards press conference in Delhi. Think she looks fab as usual and the stam works really well with the outfit, the pulled back hair and fresh makeup. Sonam Kapoor sweater dress marc jacobs stam bag media press conference delhi

Update - Turns out Sushmita's outfit is a Nicole Miller Techno Metal Combo gown. Thanks 'anonymous' for the tip off and pinkvilla for identifying the dress!

Even the Fendi purse couldn't save this outfit made of aluminium foil! And yes, this is the same woman who was voted as most stylish in 08 by Cosmo. Oh dear!

The couple that shops together

After Saif and Kareena, it's Hrithik and Suzanne Roshan's turn to step out in matchy matchy outfits with their black jackets and jeans at the Slumdog premiere. Personally I'm not a bit fan of coordinating outfits with my partner but each to his own I guess.

Going white again

Afer donning a shorter and more fitted churidaar kurta at Daboo Ratnani's calendar launch, Vidya opts for a longer white churidaar for the Slumdog premiere. Think both looks work,do you have a favourite?

Sequins et al.

The young fashionista of Bollywood or the ageless fashion icon of Hollywood - who do you think rocks the all sequined dress better? Daggy looking Ashton Kutcher should not affect your judgement ;)

On an aside I'm loving Sonam's hair - very Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl!

Akki Twinkle

I'm not a big fan of tartan but Twinkle Khanna so rocks this one shouldered red and black tartan number. The fit is perfect on her and I'm loving Akshay Kumar's suit jacket as well. Truly the reigning fashion couple of Bollywood. Akshay Kumar Twinkle Kumar 09 FHM Style Icon Awards Source
