In MapxencaRS

Rhea Kapoor took in the Anamika Khanna show in a MapxencaRS jacket which she paired with a white button-down shirt, black skirt, tights, patent wedges and an Anusha Lalwani clutch. We love the jacket and think Rhea wore it well; you?

Sonam On FHM:(Un)Covered

Styled by lil’ sis Rhea, Sonam graces the cover of FHM India’s Mar edition. Quite disappointed by the cover, the blue strip layout and the typeface kills the impact of the pose and the styling. The shoot pics (see inside) fare much better.

LFW Winter/Festive 2010: Gen Next Show

The Gen-Next show is one of the more anticipated shows of LFW. Over the years, the Gen Next show has created so many stars that this year LFW is dedicating one show to the past participants that include Kallol Datta and Nachiket Barve to name two. This year’s show featured six designers, of which three of them were duos and one presented a mens-only collection.

One of my favorite collections was The Daily Rag by mother-daughter Megha & Pragya. You’ve got to wonder if Peepli Live had anything to do with it because newspapers was their inspiration and it featured on dresses, jackets and gowns that came in neon colors. It was kitschy to the core ( and a bit reminiscent of Nida Mahmood) but some of the separates would spice up one’s wardrobe.

Jelin George showed a black collection consisting of gowns, dresses and hot pants featuring a lot of sheer, opaque and mirrorwork. Jelin took a more restrained approach with the mirrorwork and the end result was fabulous. All the pieces were sexy without going overboard.

Ruchika Sachdeva‘s collection Biomechanics kept the color pallette simple sticking to whites, greys and black. Tie & dye, metallic striped along the hip featured prominently throughout the collection. Our favorite was the long dress with the embellished cropped jacket.

Sisters’ Riddhi & Siddhi presented a collection inspired by famed architect Daniel Libeskind. Architecture being the inspiration, one saw a lot of origami pleating, exaggerated shoulders/hips in dresses that ranged from greys to blues. The piece that caught our eyes was the strapless number with the pocket-edged hemline.

In direct contrast to their label’s name (Wardrobe 101), Fazal & Akanksha’s went futuristic with their collection that had neon lit outerwear, plastic pipe sleeve detailing, leather patchwork and cord work in earthy tones. Definitely not everyone’s cup of tea.

Zuilee (by Juilee Bendkhale) presented a collection that was marked by drapes/winged sleeves using soft material like chiffon and jersey.

In MapxencaRS By Riddhi & Siddhi

Earlier this month, we posted Parvathy in a MapxencaRS dress and just days later, she once again was spotted in another dress by the same label.

Looks like her love-affair with Riddhi & Siddhi‘s ruched dresses started back in Jan with that green dress… It’d be nice to see her sport a non-ruched dress for a change… yes Parvathy, they make those too!

Ruched dresses or not, it’s time Ms. Omanakuttan quit those super-pointy gold shoes.
