In Just Cavalli

Deepika Padukone wore a pink leopard print gown to the Love Aaj Premiere in Gurgaon. She carries it off well. The gown priced quite reasonably at USD $995 for a Cavalli went on sale for a fab $348 at Neiman Marcus and not surprisingly sold out quick. Thanks 'fashionista' from 'Pinkvilla' for the ID.

Get your dose of 'Love Aaj Kal' fashion

Eros International have tied up with chain store 'Shoppers Stop' to bring forth a line of extremely reasonably priced apparel so you can channel Deepika or Saif's look from Love Aaj Kal. With tees priced from Rs. 499 and Deepika's comfy trendy tunics from Rs. 1299 this is a line that is sure to sell out fast. Run not walk to your nearest Shoppers Stop to check it all out in person. Unfortunately there isn't one in Melbourne so I'll have to wait to hear from my readers in India on the collection. You can read more about the range here.

Choo & True Religion spotting

Spotted Queenie Dhody at a GQ Bar Nite at Olives totting her Jimmy Choo Rio purse again that she teamed with a pair of True Religion jeans. If you like the jeans, you can buy the exact same pair on Revolve Clothing.

Freida and Chanel

Here are some fantastic shots that were taken when Freida Pinto attended the Chanel show at Paris Fashion Week. I've already drooled over the white dress in a previous post so best not to get there again! As can be seen from the pics not only was she lucky to be dressed in head to toe Chanel at the show but was seen carrying a Chanel purse and had a array of lust worthy jackets at her disposal. Jealous - hell yeah!!!


Got a favourite?

Deepika Padukone sure does in the form of her Miu Miu 'Pirite' gladiator sandals that she's worn the second time round now on her promo tours for 'Love Aaj Kal'. She pairs her gold flats with a Prada sling bag, which is the higher end sister brand of Miu Miu. You can get a shirred large version of the messenger bag from Blufly.

The long and the somewhat short of it

Within a span of 24 hours we see two versions of the same dress on and off the runway. Dia Mirza walked at the Blenders Pride 09 Fashion Show in Kolkatta wearing the floor length version and Asin wore a slightly shorter version in coral at 'Lighting a Billions Live' campaign. Between the two who gets your vote?

On a personal note: Delhi Moguls

In case my regular readers have been wondering why my posts have been sporadic over the past week or so, its because I have been working non-stop (in addition to my paying full time job) to help my husband launch his very own restaurant Delhi Moguls. It is probably our biggest achievement to date (and many more to come hopefully!) so couldn't resist sharing this news on my blog. If you are in Melbourne (or plan to visit), do come and check out the restaurant. Apart from the fab food and ambience you also get a chance to meet me in person i.e. if that works as an incentive ;)
You can find more info on our facebook group and the restaurant website

A sari again

Celina Jaitley's attire of choice these days seems to have shifted from miniscule shorts to saris. After donning a pink one, she now opts for a plain black sari at a promo event for her upcoming film 'Accident on Hill Road'. Her fondness for teeny weeny garments however continues, this time in the form of this barely there blouse.

Quirky Sari

Update - Turns out Geeta Ganju's saree is by Satya Paul. Thanks 'anonymous' for the tip-off. A similar style from Satya's collection can be purchased from her online store.

Spotted on model Geeta Ganju a quirky sari with a print that showcased Indian cinema's leading ladies. Love it or hate it?

Update - Turns out Mallika's wearing a Bebe sweater dress. Thanks 'Shruty' for the tip-off.
A big Eww to both Mallika Sherawat's look in upcoming movie 'Hiss' and the underarm sweat patch when she visited the Twitter headquarters in San Francisco.


Not Again!

Will we ever see the demise of this worn to death infamous Shantanu-Nikhil dress? As much as I want the answer to this question to be a resounding yes; Neha Dhupia's appearance at the Samsung washing machine launch negates it. You can catch Deepika Padukone wearing the same here.

For the Chic files

Love love love everything about Preity Zinta's look at the 'French National Day' celebrations in Mumbai right from her minimalist au naturel makeup to the beautiful champagne gold gown. My initial thoughts were that it's a Notte by Marchesa gown as it instantly reminded me of the one that I had seen on stylist Rachel Zoe a while ago but on closer inspection it isn't. I'm going to keep looking for purely selfish reasons as I would lurve to get my hands on one.

Harper's Cover Girl: Priyanka Chopra

In DvF

Update - Thanks 'A' for helping me find a runway picture of the Diane von Furstenberg dress that Gayatri's got on.

Spotted Gayatri Joshi in a summery DvF dress. Struggling to find a picture of the dress as its from an older collection but will update the post as soon as I find one.

In Herve Leger

The latest celeb appearance on Salman Khan's TV show 'Dus ka Dum' is by none other than Shilpa Shetty. And her choice of outfit is not surprisingly a Herve Leger Bandage Cocktail Dress. The exact same is available for sale through Bergdorf Goodman for USD$950.

In Saloni

Going through my daily ritual of reading my fav blogs on my iPhone during my morning commute to work, I spotted on 'Red Carpet Fashion Awards' the gorgeous Emma Watson in a gorgeous and very wearable red dress by Indian born and bred designer Saloni Lodha who runs an immensely successful label by her first name in the UK. You can read more about the designer here, whom I've previously featured in the 'Designer Watch' section.

Another Simi in the making

Is Vidya Balan another Simi Grewal (read obsessed with all white ensembles) in the making? At her most recent appearance doing her bit for the environment by planting trees Vidya was again spotted in yet another white anarkali suit. You can catch Vidya donning more white here, here and here.

Double dose of Hermes

Ridhima Kapoor opts to go with casual clothing at Vijay Arora's party at the 'Ivy' but OD'ed on Hermes with the logo belt and the Birkin.

Like daughter like mum

The Louis Vuitton obsession seems to run in the family with now Mama Shetty seen carrying the Louis Vuitton Suhali 'Le Talentueux' bag at Shatrughan Sinha's party for his film 'Aaj phir jeene ki tamanna hai'. You can catch Shilpa with some of her Louis pieces here.

Matching to the extreme

Sridevi features in yet another 'Matching to the extreme' edition; this time it being a case of brown overload. What's happened to one of my favourite stars I wonder? Can someone please bring her a DVD of 'Chandni' pronto to remind her of the timeless fabulous fashion she gave us on reel. Here's hoping for improvements!

A touch of citrus

At the 'Kambhakt Ishq' success party, Preity Zinta wore an all black ensemble which she brightened with citrus orange-black patent heels . You like? source

In Shantanu-Nikhil

This is the first pic released of Sania Mirza's engagement to long time friend Mohammed Sohrah Mirza so I'll update the post as more pics surface. For the engagement ceremony yesterday Sania Mirza wore an emerald and gold Swarovski studded lehenga by designer duo Shantanu-Nikhil. You can read more about the ceremony and the garement's design here. Congratulations to the couple!


Louis spotting

In one of Lara Dutta's latest magazine shoots, she's seen carrying the Louis Vuitton Kalahari PM which costs a neat USD$4840+taxes. Like the bag?

Not working

Whilst lavender is one of my favourite colours, this outfit of Soha Ali Khan is not doing much for me particularly because of her choice of tights and footwear. Your thoughts?


Classic and simple

At the launch of 'Beautiful Beginnings' Aishwarya Rai Bachchan keeps it classic and simple in a white camisole and a matching blazer with jeans and red pumps. You like her look?


In See by Chloe teamed with Birkin

Spotted Anu Deewan in the See by Chloe 'crayon' dress teamed with the baap of all bags (in terms of price anyways!) the Hermes Birkin at the 'Huggies Fashion Show' organised by Neeta Lulla.

Double dose of Matching to the Extreme

At the 'Kambhakt Ishq' success party we get served with a double dose of matching to the extreme.

Sari edition

Out and about recently both Pooja Batra and Celina Jaitley chose to go traditional in saris. Who do you think looked better of the two? My vote's with Pooja.

In Dolce-Gabbana with Chanel

Spotted Kahkashan Patel in a Dolce Gabbana leopard dress and carrying a Chanel quilted clutch at the 'Kambhakt Ishq' success party. The dress is on sale at Bergdorf Goodman for a measly USD$2337 if you would like to invest in one. The Chanel clutch I absolutely love (and own one too); Ridhima Kapoor has been seen carrying the same before.

Fashioned up

Akki blings it up in an embellished grey pullover teamed with matching shoes at the 'Kambhakt Ishq' success bash. Wifey Twinkle opted for her fail safe mantra of hair swept to the side, a sheath dress teamed with a clutch. Purple looks fantastic on her and like her choice of neutral accessories. As for Akshay if there is any man in B-town who can pull off bling its him. Your thoughts?

Rocking a maxi

Although Melbourne is a city known for its fashion the one thing I really miss here is colourful outfits that you see everywhere in India. I often attract a lot of attention at work when I don't wear the requisite all black but who the hell cares! So you now know I love colour and I lurve Amrita's colourful maxi. The Rayban wayfarers don't quite suit her face though and she could have done without the two cuffs mixed with the resin bangle as one statement cuff or a simple bangle on its own would've worked just fine.

In Shantanu-Nikhil

Spotted Neha Dhupia at the 'Puro' launch in a Shantanu-Nikhil suit which had the same cut and work as Malaika Arora's suit at sister Amrita's mehendi function. A lehenga version of the same has also been seen on Deepika Padukone. Your thoughts on Neha's look?
