In Givenchy

Ms. Poonawala looked great in her Givenchy peplum dress at the recent event. Hair worn up, a python clutch (Givenchy?) and Christian Louboutin spiked sandals completed her look.

Love the addition of those gold Loubs. Completely made an otherwise safe look, pop!

In Givenchy. And In Pucci.

At the Fashion Week, spotted a Givenchy tee (love!) on Bandana which she paired with denims, wedges, a metallic cascade jacket and her signature aviators.

On Sabina it was a Pucci dress that we spotted which she paired with an off-white scarf. Loved the pulled back hair, scarf and rolled up sleeves; bummed that we don’t have a full length pic though!

What do you make of their appearances?

In Twos

It was back to back blazer/jacket+dress look for designer Nandita Mahtani on day four and five of the HDIL Couture Week. While the blazer/jackets themselves were very interesting and we love pairing dresses with them, the dresses Nandita wore them with made both looks fall quite flat! The military cropped jacket would’ve looked better with denims/tank as would the white blazer with a longer dress.

Oh well!

P.S Nandita is carrying a Givenchy clutch with the olive jacket.

The Classics

Fashion and movies have gone hand-in-hand, sometimes to have given us icons and at others, iconic moments…

I have always loved the black-white-and-grey of movies as well as the effusive Eastman color. And all that came with it. Impeccable style being one. Katherine Hepburn, Liz taylor, Dorris Day, Grace Kelly, they all had IT but that’s for a follow-up post… For now though, here are some of my favorite snapshots of Audrey Hepburn movies that her friend and designer of choice Hubert Givenchy played a leading role in.

Sabrina (a movie I love) was the movie it all began with, the association between Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn. The strapless ball-gown that Audrey wears in the movie after returning from Paris was designed by the Couturier and is one of my favorites. He later went on to design most of her costumes… A fortuitous meeting during the course of a shoot that led to a lifelong association and friendship between a soon-to-become style icon and a then young couturier!

Audrey Hepburn’s understated style and quiet sophistication/elegance remain uncontested. You haven’t forgotten the opening sequence of the movie Breakfast At Tiffany’s, have you? Givenchy and she, the dream-team!

And speaking of movies I love… Funny Face. Love it so much.

The all black look of Hepburn’s (from the movie) in cropped pants, black top and ballet flats inspired so many looks and was instantly memorable. Remember the Gap ad?

But, what I really loved were those Givenchy gowns. Swoon. The Givenchy wedding dress that she wears towards the end of the movie was just plain something else!

If you haven’t seen the movie, you must. In fact, go on and see all three (again)… so fun. I know I want to.

I will leave you with this really fun clip and even more fun song from Funny Face… Pay attention to the lyrics, it’s bound to make you smile.
