P&P could you please ID the clutch that Gauri Khan is carrying in this post on your blog? I can’t find it anywhere and am sure you ladies would be able to help!
Gauri Khan At Manish Malhotra Fashion Show
Vrinda, Gauri Khan was carrying a Valentino clutch… It was a special edition clutch released celebrating the revered house’s 45th Anniversary celebrations!
On paper, its a clutch am more likely than not to dislike, yet somehow I don’t! Not a fan of rosettes and those pearl accents, yet I like how its all come together in this clutch; especially how it stands out against the black of Gauri’s dress. :)
YUM!!! YUMMY!!! I looove this clutch… its got this, I dunno, old-school quality about it. Something I’d imagine Hema Malini to carry in the 70s. I’m a geek.
aw shame. i’m assuming vrinda likes this purse, way to go shoot her down p&p, by saying that you should probably hate it!
lol@PeachBellini. P&P are just trying to give hints– on how to color coordinate–to wear a black outfit with this clutch. ;)
On Gauri ,it’s not photographed well making it look flurry. Upclose,i like it. But no way i would carry one.Maybe for my mom.
What I meant was it was a clutch I would normally hate (rosettes, pearl accents?) but I don’t! Coz it somehow comes together really well!
loves it! the contrast between the black outfit and the red clutch is so pretty. Kinda like having red lips on a monochrome outfit.
It’s a beautiful bag but it should be worn with a formal dress or gown. Gauri does not do it justice with her casual look and shiny makeup.
This clutch is beyond terrible and now my eyes hurt. Its not the color thats bad but those rosettes!!!
its an interesting clutch. its not something i would buy but its ok…
Why is Gauri Khan ALWAYS so shiny? Get her some powder to put in that clutch!
ewww.. why put the shiny face back in front page. i would agree on the contrast but apart from it, the purse is just wee bit better than her black outfit.
why she looks so oily???
I could tell that that was what you were saying Priyanka so don’t fret :) (hopefully Vrinda can tell too though aha). Yea I like it..(the clutch).
Love the clutch………dunno why she is so oily……and yes it should have been carried with a formal dress.
haha no worries priyanka, i was just trying to be a wiseass ;)
i actually think this clutch is do-able, if it weren’t for the pearl accents. hope vrinda manages to get her hands on it.
Ummm…the clutch sorta kinda reminds me of those red velvet “thrones” that were very popular in weddings in the 90’s. Ahh…childhood memories ;P
The pearl accents could have been given a miss. Agree with PeachBellini on that one.
Sachita, you are correct. :)
Oh my! So much shine on her face. What and why does she do such stuff to her skin?
just totally love it! its like a wokr of art or something!
very YUMMY CLUTCH
Would you all stop saying “oily”, that stuff is the moisturizer she’s using, it makes her face shiny. Face wise she looks really good but that’s too much black in all that dress for that little red bag to do anything significant. Alone though, yeah, the bag is really nice.
nice clutch. this isn’t a recent picture and she’s sorted out the shine on her face since then.
Hate the clutch. No matter how they are dressed up, rosettes always look SO tacky.
errrrmmmm no thanks
It’s light reflecting make-up. It looks fine in person but photographs badly.
Not sure about you guys but Valentino’s line of bags this season are to die for. The bags are almost orgasmic beautiful….no they ARE orgasmic beautiful ….with lots of detailing like rosettes (especially rosettes), pleating etc…I think even minimalists like me would fall head over heels in love. They are just so chic, beautiful, elegant without looking too girly…
I mean aren’t you getting bored of the usual croc/patent permutations and combinations?
Given the grandeur of the clutch, I would have paired it with a more formal, but still understated navy dress. Gauri’s perpetually shiny skin is something that perhaps is the result of botox, which tends to give that slightly oily look. But I could be mistaken, as others have mentioned that light-reflecting makeup causes the same effect. Either way, I would love for her to develop a more matte look with thicker, more natural brows. She’s an attractive woman with strong features that are unfortunately overshadowed by bad makeup choices.
@Divya: :D If only clothes/accessories were truly capable of inducing orgasms: the world’s population of males would be rendered obsolete! Jokes aside, I, as someone who gravitates toward classic cuts and deep, rich colors, love this clutch. I actually prefer my clothes to be the backdrop for more expensive accessories.
Love the clutch.
She never wears any other color ,itseems.
Strapless or black is her only thing…
