Found/Off The Runway

In Alice+Olivia

Renu Chainani, owner of the store Eastern Treasure in Mumbai, was spotted wearing the same Alice+Olivia dress seen also on Malin Akerman and Kourtney Kardashian. Loved the clutch but hated the gold slip-ons.

Poonam Bhagat attended the last night of HDIL Couture Week in a Spring 2009 Gucci dress that she paired with a tan clutch and pink Louboutin platform pumps. While others go overboard with matching their accessories (read: match the shoes to the bag to the jewellery), I liked that she matched in a subtle way.

P.S. Poonam is Sheetal Mafatlal’s sister.

Fresh Off The Runway

When the first sets of pics came in, I was thoroughly pleased to see Mehr not in black, a color she wears quite so often. But more pics came in and turns out that she did wear black on arrival and then changed into a Monisha Jaisingh dress that was shown during the Monisha show. (Am guessing she did it after Monisha’s show ended.)

I wish we’d get more of the Monisha looks from Mehr than the dowdy black one.

Update: The dress is a Jenny Packham. Thanks ‘Disha’ for the ID.

Wearing a sequin beige dress with pink Mirrored Louboutin pumps, Ms. Zinta finally gave us a look worth writing home about. This is the PZ we know and go gaga about. Loved it on her. You?

P.S. Her dress looks so familiar, anyone know what it is?

After seeing Mehr in this Chanel dress, you can’t but not like it on Anu as much. Yes, I know it is not fair to compare a photoshoot with a real life picture but even if I consider Anu on her own, she didn’t do good. The hair was bad and the blush too much. For once, I would really like to see her pay attention to her hair too.
