All That Glitters…

Being Madhuri can only take Madhuri that far. A beautiful woman. Rather unfortunate clothes.

P.S: Look inside for pictures of the jewelry from the launch. Some of those pieces are absolutely lust-worthy; love them earrings.

P.P.S. She is wearing Varun Bahl. Thanks ‘Hitasha’.

In Twos- Part Deux!

Fashion Week saw two very different looks from Koel… One was a sequin dress (Varun Bahl?) which she paired with some blue heels and the other, a cropped top which Koel paired with Gaurav Gupta pants.

Now, which look of hers do you like? Like with anything else, neither is always an option! ;)

WLIFW A/W 2011: Day One (Part Deux!)

Monapali, WLIFW Autumn/Winter 2011

Embellished sleeves, collars and shrugs played a prominent role in this collection that included saris, anarkalis, dresses and jumpsuits. While the fabrics were interesting, the silhouettes were expected and the inspiration a tad tired. The bridge between modernity and traditional has been well tread upon, and in this case, it certainly needed more!

Pankaj And Nidhi, WLIFW Autumn/Winter 2011

While the geometric prints, bright hues and interesting silhouettes were in themselves great, the clever use of fabrics made this an instant favorite. Texturally rich and multi-dimensional, it sure was very appealing.

Geisha Designs By Paras And Shalini, WLIFW Autumn/Winter 2011

Somber colors with a dash of red and green made up the color palette. Referencing the planet, the topography prints as well the lava prints made for a change from the more soft, pastel-ey monochrome looks sent down the runway. Appliqué, dyed fabrics, textured shrugs and dramatic sleeves dressed up soft dresses, jumpsuits and flowey tops.

Varun Bahl, WLIFW Autumn/Winter 2011

While the collection sure was separates heavy with silhouettes including coat dresses, shift dresses, tops, jackets, trousers etc, evening-wear dominated this collection. Our favorites were the dresses with the voluminous skirts and the more classic below the knee shift dress, both of which thanks to the use of embellishment and texture were given an instant update. Even with the use of embellishments, clever pleating and textural details, none of it felt over the top; it was subdued and sophisticated.

Rishta By Arjun Saluja, WLIFW Autumn/Winter 2011

Severely structured. Menswear inspired. And multi-dimensional. This collection from Arjun Saluja cleverly used fabrics and silhouettes to create looks that were both sharp and impeccably tailored. Other than the usual suspects (grey, black, plum and brown), loved the use of the muted/pale green. Almost held a vintage appeal.

Being Human: Through The Decades

For Salman’s charity, ‘Being Human’, the celebrities were out in droves showing their support both on and off the runway.

Each actress walked the runway representing one particular decade, starting right from the Twenties. And speaking of Twenties, it was Preity Zinta who walked in a look from her movie Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. Following which, Katrina did the Thirties in a Gauri and Nainika dress and Rani Mukherjee the Forties in a Manish Malhotra lehenga.

Bipasha walked in a Sunaina Puri dress representing the Fifties and Karisma did the Sixties in a Manish Malhotra sari. Anyone else have a Zubeida flashback looking at Ms. Kapoor? :) Sushmita did the flamboyant Seventies in Raakesh Agarvwal and the Eighties were all Priyanka’s channeling Madonna in a Sunaina Puri design. And finally, it was Kareena Kapoor for the Nineties who walked in Varun Bahl and mapxencaRS to INXS‘s Need You Tonight complete with a hat and whip..
