Chic or Eeks? Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla at Cannes

Chic or Eeks? Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla at Cannes

Dear Mommy Aishwarya,

I’m happy you haven’t bowed down to the pressure of losing your post-pregnancy weight immediately after birth.

Aishwarya Rai Bachhan Cannes 2012

So while you can’t carry off a body-hugging evening gown (or more importantly, the snobbish designers won’t have samples in your size), at least choose an outfit that’s stylish and flatters you.

The gold work on this Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla outfit is a bit too jarring for me and the genteel folk at Cannes. You could have done with a lighter blouse  for instance.

Or how about trying on a looser silhouette- there are so many flattering designer dresses for heavier and curvier women. The A-line is always flattering.

Also, how can you wear an Indian  outfit and leave your ears bare? Earrings are the one accessory that pull an Indian ensemble together.

BTW, the makeup is gorgeous! Loved the eyes.

What do you think of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s ensemble at Cannes 2012?

Here’s a look at what happened on Day 1 of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Autumn/ Winter 2012.

All kinds of cocktail dresses

There were gorgeous metallic finish dresses at S&N Drape by Shantanu-Nikhil, while slinky satins with drapes and lower doses of bling made up James Ferreira’s collection.

Prints of the day

I enjoyed the rippled reed, lotus and lotus leaf print on moss and leaf greens at Anand Kabra, while Anupama Dayal did not surprise with her choice of florals and geometrics (among her faves going by earlier collections).

White, black and shades of nude

It’s amazing how white, black and nude appear different to each designer. For Vineet Bahl, a black canvas was the starting point, later moving on to earthier hues. (Below: Vineet Bahl)

At S&N Drape by Shantanu-Nikhil, the final set of garments were nude dresses with white embroidery, and they were gorgeous. And Anju Modi began with ivory and cream, and ended with black.

International influences

Sixteenth century Spanish toreros (matadors) provided inspiration to Preeti Chandra. The toreros wore elaborately decorated ‘Traje de Luces’ or ‘suits of light’. She transformed the toreros’ Trajes de Luces (suits of light) into feminine forms with dabka and intricate embroideries on silks. (Below: Preeti Chandra)

Meanwhile, Vineet Bahl used vintage Romanian shawls and antique Sardinian embroideries on 1960s silhouettes for the world traveller. The Indian touch came with neon accents with kantha work and stone work on brocade. (Below: Vineet Bahl)

Anju Modi explored the diversity of cultures and their similarity with inspiration from Uzbekistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan touching the Kutch border. The free flowing silhouettes were the hallmark of the collection, with ‘sarabara’ or loose trousers worn by Scythians transformed into cowl trousers. Hand-woven fabrics (raw silk melding with textured cotton) brought an earthy edge to the collection. (Below: Anju Modi)

Accessories of the day

Footwear grabbed the spotlight with sexy stilettos for the glam party girl at S&N by Shantanu-Nikhil and summery, girly shoes at Anupama Dayal. Meanwhile, the dangling earrings at Preeti Chandra reminded me of the 1980s and Spanish country women.

Bollywood Fashion: Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’s Kareena Kapoor dresses quirky, Imran Khan goes formal

Bollywood Fashion: Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’s Kareena Kapoor dresses quirky, Imran Khan goes formal

I watched Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu over the weekend, and found it a refreshing movie in more ways than one. The movie was fun, and the actors’ wardrobes were stylish, which is what you’d expect from a Dharma Productions film.

Kareena-Imran Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu

I was happy to note that Manish Malhotra (Kareena Kapoor’s designer for the movie) managed to bring an element of fun, quirkiness and style to Kareena’s wardrobe. Here’s a breakdown of Kareena’s look.

What Kareena is wearing:

Kareena plays a hair stylist Riana in Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. Now if you go to the salon I go to, you’d know that most young stylists have their unique way of dressing showing their creative side. Riana is just like that. She wears a range of colours, dresses casually, and looks like a chic mess. 🙂

Kareena in blue Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu

In Las Vegas, Riana’s staple wear is layered tops with a jacket and short skirt with dark tights (it’s winter). In Mumbai she wears jeans and tees with light cotton shrugs.

Key trends:

Striped tees: Simple striped V-neck tshirts are a huge trend globally (you see them more in Europe and US than in India). With these tees, Kareena gets an instant international look.Kareena striped tshirt- Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu

Jackets: It’s December in Vegas, so Kareena wears all kinds of outerwear- waistcoat, leather and fleece-lined jackets.

Kareena in waistcoat- Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu

Tight mini skirts and shorts: Kareena has curves now, but that doesn’t stop her from wearing denim and lightly-embroidered minis with black tights. Good news for us normal-sized girls.

Kareena printed scarf ek Main Aur Ekk Tu

Layering with colour mixing and lace: Manish Malhotra has very layered Kareena’s costumes by mixing colours. The looks are really colour-coordinated or matchy-matchy. Also, the ace designer has innerwear-as-outerwear a more relatable spin by giving Kareena camisoles and slips with lace on the neckline, then adding tshirts to layer. Loved that!

Accessories:

Jewellery: Kareena wears two rings on her right hand (one is a pearl) and a watch on her left. Her dangling earrings mostly comprise little charms like dull gold leaves.

Oversized bright bags: Yellow, fuchsia, blue… yum!

Manly shoes: No stilettos or sexy heeled booties for Riana, because she wears rugged men’s shoes! I loved the scene in which Kareena tottered around in Imran Khan’s shoes and complained they were too big. 😀

Scarves and stoles: Patterned and bright!

Kareena pink stole Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu

Hair and makeup:

Kareena’s hair is wild and astray, which she keeps in check with clips and pins. The red highlights suit her skin tone and style, while her lined eyes and light glossy lips keep her “real”. 🙂

Special Mention:

In the song Auntyji, Kareena Kapoor wears a gorgeous royal blue wrap dress that is feminine, classy and doesn’t reveal much (she’s out with her family after all). You can’t help liking that one!

Kareena wrap dress Ek Main AUr Ekk TU

Imran Khan’s look:

Styled by Shiraz Siddique, Imran Khan is all grown up in Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. Dubbed appropriately as a “tightass” by Riana, Rahul is formal and stiff. His colours are mostly black and grey and he wears only slim fit shirts, trousers and cardigans. That’s right, no jeans or tshirts for Imran Khan.

Imran Khan grey shirt Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu

The only hint of colour was the green V-neck cardigan Imran wears while hanging out with Kareena in Vegas.

But if there’s one thing I could steal from his wardrobe, it would be the light blue shirt with white collar he wore in Mumbai. Paired with khakis, that was as casual or semi-formal as Imran’s character could get.

Imran blue shirt Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu

Chic surprise of the movie: Statement neckpieces

Whoever thought Ratna Pathak Shah could be so convincing as a South Mumbai socialite? This talented woman plays Imran Khan’s mother with a chic hair do, lots of attitude and is always dressed to the T. Most importantly, she can’t do without her Louis Vuitton luggage, and has a penchant for oversized neckpieces, which she carries off with a high-brow pout and smirk.

My favourite neckpiece is the one she wears at the formal dinner she hosts, large baubles and all. (Sorry, couldn’t find the picture). But here she is on the way to the opera.

Announcing the Chic Cleanup Project

Announcing the Chic Cleanup Project

I have an embarrassing confession to make—I have too many clothes. And too many bags and shoes and jewellery.

From pants to night wear, I have them all. But most of all, I have a tonne of casual clothes accumulated over the years. Some chic things I bought during my trip to Spain last year (bags, belts, makeup):

Sometime last year, I told myself I couldn’t really buy any new clothes because I had no space for them on my cupboard. So shopping became an issue. I came back empty-handed from almost every trip to the mall. I’m not really a shopaholic and I don’t buy on impulse, so that didn’t bother me much. But I wanted the cute skirt and the feminine blouse once in a while. And most importantly, I wanted to be up-to-date.

How can fashionista be dress trendy if I have don’t have new clothes to experiment with?

So late 2011, I decided it was time for drastic measures. I had to change my approach to my wardrobe, my shopping, my fashion, my style, and life in general. And the bottomline was:

I needed to get rid of my old clothes and my old life.

And so the cleanup began. I have taken a pledge that’s something like:

  • I will purge my wardrobe of all the “bad” and unnecessary clothes
  • I will adopt a minimal approach to fashion, styling and my life.
  • I will complete this by June 30, 2012.

While typing this, I feel that this does seem a bit self-absorbed – doing a cleanup because I want to be trendy. But it’s now become more than that. It’s about freeing myself from the mess I see everyday and freeing my mind from the “too much” in my life.

Call it declutter, call it taking the Zen approach, call it what you will. It’s ultimately a thorough cleanse of my life and I’m determined to achieve it.

So here’s what I will be doing in the next few months:

  • Throwing or giving away clothes I don’t want or need
  • Shop as less as possible (been kinda successful with this so far)
  • Discovering what and how much I really need in my wardrobe (do I really need 15 tshirts, for instance?)
  • Adopting a “system” to make my life clutter-free and minimalistic
  • Blogging about my experiences and findings!

All I ask, dear readers, is encouragement, support and your tips.

Let the chic (and crazy) cleanup begin!

New Year Fashion: Dress your best to welcome 2012

It’s time to party and ring in 2012 in style! Dresses, makeup, accessories—confused? Here’s our party style guide for you.

Little Black Dress

I’m not going to bother saying the LBD never goes out of style (you already know that). But you can wear it differently: wear it in tiers or with detailing like lace, sequins and beads.

Bling for 2012

Bling works if you want it to work. Metallics, rhinestones and faux crystal embellishments are perfect for the party night of the year.

Bollywood Fashion: Chammak challo Kareena Kapoor shows us how to be a Diwali phataka

Bollywood Fashion: Chammak challo Kareena Kapoor shows us how to be a Diwali phataka

Happy Diwali, lovely readers! May you be as chic as Kareena Kapoor (or your favourite fashion icon)!

Ra.One releases today, and there’s no doubt that Kareena Kapoor’s Chammak Challo will be as big a draw as G.One’s superpowers. I’ve spent weeks trying to understand the secret behind Kareena’s gorgeousness in the song, and I think I’ve finally cracked the code. It’s all about the fashion!

Kareena Kapoor in RaOne

Kareena’s mindboggling curves have no doubt added a major oomph to her look, but let’s not underestimate the power of fashion to make you sexy. Especially when Manish Malhotra is the man behind the clothes.

After hours of painstaking notes, I’ve drawn some fashion tips from the Diwali phataka. Use these easy-to-follow fashion tips to show off your sexy side!

Fashion tip 1: Wear red

Manish Malhotra has dressed Kareena in an attention-grabbing colour and it’s a colour that suits her. The colour that suits you could be deep blue, purple or hot pink.

Fashion tip 2: The outfit is simple yet chic

The pre-stitched sari (or shall I say half-sari?) designed by Manish Malhotra has minimal embellishment, along the border. The focus is on enhancing Kareena’s body shape rather than making her look like an OTT diva or queen.

Fashion tip 3: Cover up, but only so much

The semi-sheer blouse Kareena wears is only half the story. As the song begins, Kareena’s wafer-thin pallu is firmly in place, till she decides to tuck it into her sari. You don’t need to go all-sheer to show off your figure, but just peek-a-boo at the right places could work wonders.

Fashion tip 4: Accessorise to your advantage

Kareena Kapoor’s sex appeal is enhanced with the choice of jewellery. The absence of a necklace draws attention to her collarbones, and the dangling earrings and nose ring pull you toward her face which is absolutely gorgeous. (Intensely-lined eyes, light lips).

Kareena Kapoor in Ra.One song

Tip 5: Set a trend

It’s been ages since I saw a young woman (who is not a bride) wear a bindi, and someone even told me that bindis are “out of fashion”. We hope Kareena’s bindi will make the humble red dot popular again!

Stay chic!

Bollywood Fashion: Sonam Kapoor dons a range of looks in Mausam

Even if you haven’t watched Mausam, we bet you’ve seen Sonam Kapoor’s gorgeous red gown and her salwar kameezes in the movie’s promos, designed by Kolkata-based Anamika Khanna.

Sonam Kapoor in Mausam- red gown

Sonam Kapoor in Mausam

Being a romance film, Sonam’s colour palette is soft yet vivid (the red gown and black are the strongest colours), her silhouette feminine, and her outfits easily gel in with the rural Punjab setting. Also commendable is the job done by Lovleen Bains creating authentic costumes  for the Punjabi village folk.

Here’s a look at Sonam’s various looks in Mausam:

In the first season (set in winter of 1992), Sonam’s Aayat wears plain salwar kameezes with Kashmiri-embroidered shawls with (she plays a Kashmiri). She wears her hair straight or ties it up cutely when she heads to high school.

Sonam Kapoor in Mausam-- Kashmiri shawl

Over in Scotland seven years later, Sonam’s got a quirky vibe with long curly hair always decorated with a flower, even in ballet class. Her clothes are super-girly as she wears long skirts and dresses, layering them with light cover-ups. Her makeup is mostly nude; her flaming red gown and lips a stark contrast to Sonam’s looks of the season. Sonam carries off the “red”ness with elegance and poise, looking absolutely gorgeous and graceful. (It was my “Woah!” moment in the movie). We also loved the white dress Sonam wore on a trip to the countryside.

Sonam Kapoor in white dress

Sonam Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor in Mausam

Then the storyline takes a serious turn, and the mood is sombre, melancholic and  doleful. Sonam loses her lover, her love of colour and “happy” clothes. Her colours are now black, blue and grey, and she covers her head with a shawl (not sure why).

Sonam Kapoor in Mausam

In the final season, Sonam is based in Gujarat and it was a pleasant surprise to see her in saris—bandhini and a printed one (we think it’s made from organic fabric).

Our favourite outfit in Mausam is the green sari Sonam wears when Shahid is coming over to dinner. The sari’s blouse has a crochet/ lace border and the fine thread embroidery done by hand is wonderfully Indian, contemporary and dressy, without being OTT.

Verdict:
While the movie is not much home to write about, some fashion lovers may be tempted to watch the movie for Anamika Khanna’s creations. Given the limitations of the character and the plot, the designer has done a good job, and a handful of the outfits are inspirational. However, if you really want to see Sonam’s best clothes, we suggest you watch Aisha again.

Bollywood Fashion: Katrina Kaif is edgy rockgirl in Mere Brother ki Dulhan? Not!

For those who haven’t seen Mere Brother ki Dulhan yet—Katrina Kaif attempts a rocker act for a few minutes in the film. Unfortunately, neither her performance as a rocker is convincing, nor is her look what we expect from a rockstar. However, the film’s costume design team has tried to give her a distinct look that resembles a girl walking on the wild side. (Note: The costume design credits for the movie list Rocky S, Harmeet Sethi and Neha Bhatnagar; we assume Rocky S styled Katrina Kaif. If you believe otherwise, please leave a comment below).

Katrina Kaif Mere Brother ki Dulhan

Dimple aka Katrina Kaif’s s style statement
As a girl on the wild side (more than a rocker chick), you’ll see Katrina Kaif in tight shorts and coloured pants with boots, printed tees and uncombed hair. But no unusual piercings, and the tattoo on her lower back was tame! One of the brands we spotted was the very British Jack Wills.

Katrina Kaif Mere Brother ki Dulhan

In the rest of the film, Katrina’s style varies. In couple scenes, she’s in patiala salwar and ill-fitting kurtis, in some you’ll see layered tight tank tops with cropped pants (like Kareena Kapoor in Golmaal 3). And in others, she’s wearing pleasant blouses. Her most unusual look was a floral dresses with tan boots. Bold pairing, we dare say!

Katrina Kaif and Ali Zafar in Mere Brother ki Dulhan

Katrina Kaif and Imran Khan in Mere Brother ki Dulhan

Accessories
Katrina has piled on colourful angles as she strums her electric guitar in Dhunki, and she sports dangling earrings when she “grows up”. They add a feminine touch and draw attention to her lovely face. We like her bang-on-trend long pendants and charm necklaces worn throughout the film.

Katrina Kaif and Ali Zafar in Mere brother ki Dulhan Katrina Kaif and Imran Khan in Mere brother ki Dulhan

Hair and makeup
As rocker girl, Katrina’s hair is wild, unkempt and dark. Her lips are mostly nude, though her makeup artist has given her intense smokey eyes both on the lid and below the eyes.

katrina-rockstar1

In the rest of the movie, Katrina’s makeup is mostly nude, and her hair is straighter. We especially liked the short-to-long bangs.

Our verdict on Katrina Kaif
While Katrina Kaif’s style statement in Mere Brother ki Dulhan is varied and a bit confusing, we did like some of the clothes she wore, especially like the feminine tops. We bet a number of girls will soon be asking where they can buy those clothes. And oh, while her acting performance is best left unrated, she looks gorgeous!

Imran Khan and Ali Zafar

What Imran is wearing: Mostly checkered shirts with plain white tees… yawn!

What Ali is wearing: T-shirts with blazers…huh? Bizarre!

What do you think of Katrina Kaif’s style statement in Mere Brother ki Dulhan—hit or miss?
