INSTANT STYLE: Get Jacqueline’s looks from Roy now!

In her latest film Roy Jacqueline Fernandes plays a double role with each character dressed in a distinct style. Here are both the looks decoded, and how you can get them.

Jacqueline Fernandes as Ayesha Aamir, film-maker

Jacqueline Fernandes in Roy

Clothes and accessories

This bohemian film-maker loves her crop tops, loose blouses and shorts (she is in sunny Malaysia, after all). Her accessories of choice? Geeky glasses (they come on and off), stacks of bracelets and open sandals. She also accessorises with dangling earrings or the quirky-cute studs. And oh, the few times she’s at work, she’s in a comfortable cotton shirt.

Hair and makeup

Jacqueline’s hair is coloured and carefully unkempt to complement her boho look. Makeup is minimal in a number of scenes though sometimes you will spot a hint of lip colour.

Chic Jewellery Trends: Gold gets a twist, diamonds still rule

What image comes to mind when we say “gold jewellery”? Aunties loaded with bling, boring decades-old designs and weddings, right? We felt the same, till we saw some interesting new gold jewellery late last week.

Contemporary gold jewellery is about using the precious metal as moldable clay, focussing on intricate and delicate designs with special attention given to craftsmanship.

For instance, at the recent India International Jewellery Week 2011, jewellery designer Pallavi Foley made gold into wearable art. She twisted and turned 18K gold in unexpected ways, creating 3D forms, graceful drapes and waves and dramatic movements. Her latest collection is seems fun to wear. In the pictures below, Pallavi has used fresh water pearls with gold.

And at the India International Jewellery Show 2011, the World Gold Council presented a selection of jewellery especially targeted at young Indian consumers. The selection comprised pieces from Amrapali Jewellers and Derawala Jewellers.

Meanwhile, diamonds continue to be a girl’s best friend as we saw at the Gehna Jewellers show last week. Here is Angela Jonnson in a gorgeous tiara, cuff, ring and necklace.
