Ram Leela

27th November 2013

I saw Ram Leela last week and had to post some stills. I absolutely loved the film- the cinematography, choreography, music and performances were just so dreamy and the costumes- what can I say- they made my jaw drop! Hats off to Anju Modi and Maxima Basu – they’ve both done an incredible job. They have managed to add a contemporary feel to the looks while celebrating traditional Gujurati craftmanship and textiles. Maxima was in charge of costumes for the principal cast including Ranveer’s wardrobe and some of Deepika’s ( the costume in the first pic was by Maxima). The rest of DP’s costumes were by Anju Modi. I read a fab interview with Anju Modi by Couture Rani about the film’s costumes- def worth a read!

My Fave Trends at PCJ Delhi Couture Week and India Bridal Fashion Week

30th August 2013

All these back to back fashion weeks are making my head spin! So, I’ve decided to in the words of John Legend- ‘to take it slooowwww’ that’s why I’m here posting a trend report on PCJ Couture Fashion Week and India Bridal Fashion Week when everyone else is already in the thick of blogging about Lakme Fashion Week. Ohhh Well! And yep I’ve put together both fashion weeks in the report because no matter how many times the organisers say there’s a huge difference between both I’ll disagree.

SEXY BACK
It was all about the sexy back at both Fashion Weeks. The prettiest examples were from Manish Malhotra with demure front necklines with open or low backs which just looked sooo yum.

WHITE & GOLD

White and Gold was trending all over the catwalks and I love these bold White and Gold looks. Who says you need colour to make a statement?

JERSEY SARI

Jersey Sari’s have been around for a while but these super hot incarnations needed to be shared. Seriously how super sexy is the master of drape- Guarav Gupta’s sari? I just can’t get enough of this trend and yep I’m still pining over the Sonaakshi Raaj sari Deepika Padukone wore recently!

JACKETS/CAPES

Layering in general was a big trend at both fashion weeks. There were cute bolero shapes at Rohit Bal and JJ Valaya and longer jackets over saris, pants and gowns at JJ Valaya, Raghavendra Rathore and Meera & Muzaffar ALi. Capes were also all over the place with the most directional at Anamika Khanna and pretty sheer capes at Masaba Gupta @ Satya Paul

THE ETHNIC MASH UP

I can’t think of a better name for this trend than- The Ethnic Mash Up. We’ve already become accustomed to the humble sari getting an injection of youth with pop art prints via the likes of Masaba Gupta and Aarti Vijay Gupta and then of course the jersey sari via the likes of Guarav Gupta and Sonaakshi Raaj. This reworking of the traditional continues with some exciting mash ups.

Wedding Weds: Bridal Updo inspiration

21st August 2013

I’m in the midst of wedding hair trials so have been collecting plenty of inspiration to take to my appointments. For the Hindu wedding I’ve been looking at low bun options for two reasons- firstly the Mr. and I are around the same height (I’m 5’9) and secondly I want to have my dupatta draped over a low bun rather than the top of my head. I think the later option would just look too severe on me.

A note to all brides with dark hair (without any highlights) when looking for inspiration remember that any styles on brides with highlights (esp blonde brides) will look very different on you. All the different hair tones add more interest to the hairstyle. This is not me saying to go get your hair dyed! just to be aware of the differences!

2012: Indian Fashion, Trend and Style Review

1st Jan 2013

It’s review time! Here’s my Fashion, Trend and Style report for 2012

MY TOP THREE INDIAN FASHION SHOWS

It was an exciting year for Indian fashion in 2012 and here’s my fav three catwalk shows of the year.

1st PLACE: SABYASACHI

I adore Sabya’s work and the collection he showed at Delhi Couture Week simply took my breath away. To read more click here.

1st Jan 1

2nd PLACE: NAMRATA JOSHIPURA

I love the understated luxe that Namrata brings to her collections, her show at WIFW includes some of the hottest trends for S/s 13. To read more click here.

1st Jan 2

3rd PLACE: RETARDED VELVET

Both WIFW and Lakme Fashion Week have really championed new talent this year and Retarded Velvet are one of my fav new ‘ones to watch’ there print ROCK. To read more click here.

1st Jan 3

MY TOP THREE TRENDS

There were many trends in 2012 and I’ve struggled narrowing the selection down to my fav three. What do you think of my choice? would you have opted for something else?

1st PLACE: PEPLUMS

Everyone went peplum mad in 2012 (including me!) the super flattering style was worn by many celebs and these three looks are gorg.

1st Jan 4

L-R Neha Dupia in Victoria Beckham, Esha Gupta in H&M & Sonam Kapoor in a Jelin George skirt.

2nd PLACE: LONG GOWNS

Ohh there were soooo many red carpet events this year and these stunning gowns really made a mark!

1st Jan 5

L-R Anushka Sharma in Roberto Cavalli, Deepika Padukone in Gaurav Gupta & Frieda Pinto in Alexander McQueen.

3rd PLACE: POP ART PRINT SARI

The sari got a big injection of fun this year with these fun pop art prints which celebs went mad for.

1st Jan 6

L-R Hazel Keech in Aarti Vijay Gupta, Soha Ali Khan in Masaba Gupta, Sonam Kapoor in Surendi by Yogesh Chaudhary.

MY TOP THREE STYLISH INDIANS

1st PLACE: SONAM KAPOOR
Sonam has been wowing us with her stylish looks for the last few years and her 2012 choices have been amaaziiingg! Not only has this gorg lady been flying the flag for fashion at home but outside of India too. How amazing did she look at the Elie Saab show in a Deepti Pruthi sari? I also love the Anamika Khanna draped sari pant look she’s been championing recently, this girl knows how to start a trend!

1st Jan 7

L-R Anamika Khanna, Unknown, Deepti Pruthi, Cavalli

2nd PLACE: SAMEERA REDDY

Sonam had better watch out because Ms Reddy is hot on her heels! Her fashion choices before 2012 were suspect and I’m guessing there’s a rather talented stylist behind her fashion transformation but regardless of the reason- one things for sure she looked HOT in 2012. I LOVE the fact she’s supported Indian fashion labels this year from Shivan & Narresh, Kallol Datta, Nishka Lulla and newbies Huemn.

1st Jan 8

L-R Shivan & Narresh, unknown, AM:PM, Shivan & Narresh

3rd PLACE: DEEPIKA PADUKONE

Deepika always looks good but this year it just seems like she’s stepped it up a gear. Her off duty style of oversize tees, skinnies and chunky jewellery always works and her red carpet choices have been YUM. The red Gaurav Gupta gown, the green Gauri & Nainika gown and the stunning Dolce & Gabbana gold skirt all get an A* from me.

1st Jan 9

L-R Sabyasachi, Gauri & Nainika, Abu & Sandeep & Dolce & Gabbana

Cocktail: Deepika Padukone wardrobe

3rd August 2012

I finally got round to watching the summer blockbuster Cocktail and what did I think? Hmmm Saif Ali Khan as a playboy in a love triangle who changes when he falls in love? Sound familiar? yep its the same old character he plays over and over again but nonetheless it was enjoyable enough. The real star for me by far was Deepika Padukone’s wardrobe. Anaita Shroff Adajania the film’s stylist just nailed it and Deepika’s feisty character Veronica got the hottest looks from a mix of designer brands (yep there was a Burberry moment or three) to High St brands (I spotted French Connection and All Saints) I’ve picked out my favourite looks but couldn’t find any clear full shots in her eve looks : (

And I think some of Veronica’s styling has spilled over into Deepika’s real life because her wardrobe has been yum recently especially the super hot gold maxi she wore at Vogue beauty awards

Vogue India June: Deepika

14th June 2012

I had to share this gorgeous Vogue shoot with Miss Deepika. I love her look in this series. The soft boho styling paired with bed head hair and coral lips really suits her (I sometimes think her stylists over do her look- too much of the bronzer + berry lips and really grown up gowns- she’s so young! she can leave all that for ten years down the line!!!)

The only shot I didn’t like in this series was the one that made it to the cover. It was Deepika in a cut out Agent Provocateur swimsuit I didn’t like it so I’ve decided not to post it! Come on Vogue leave the swimsuit covers to the lads mags!
