This is huge… And, we are over the moon! Vogue India in it’s March issue included us in a feature called the ‘New Influencers’… Wild right? We couldn’t be more thrilled and can’t believe we got included in the same feature that had names like Mawi, Prabal Gurung, Amit Aggarwal, Sonam Kapoor, Shilpa Chavan among others.

A biiig thank-you to Priya, Bandana and the entire Vogue team that worked really patiently with the extremely camera-shy us.

The biggest ‘Thank-You’ of all goes to YOU guys of course for continuing to show us your support!

    • Well, this is the first time I am seeing how you guys look. Seriously, for all the writing you do about other women…I am not impressed by your looks. Payal that white number makes you look round and loaded around the hips. You could do something with the hair? As for Priyanka, nothing special with the black dress. Better posture would have helped both of you look better.

      Will I see my honest opinion?

      • I cannot agree more. They neither have amazing looks nor a charming personality. And not jus that, they are arrogant too…i happened to bump into them a couple of years back at ‘Mango’ and heard them pass flippant (disgraceful if i may add) remarks about me and few other girls in the store. And i often notice them doing the same with a lot of celebrities too, even when they all without a Doubt look zillion times better than both of these girls.

        • Hi Zari,
          Considering Priyanka and I have been in India together at the same time just twice and both times never had a minute to step into the mall, we find that very hard to believe. Either someone pretended to be us or you mistook two other ladies for us. :)

    • Also, on a side note –
      I have been following for almost 2 yrs now i think… and through this time you girls have gained pretty famous.
      But you have not gone over board with the success. What i mean is, from then to now… i still feel like i am reading my girl friend’s blog.
      Thats why i think you have so many of us coming back. Great work!

  19. I would say I was surprised at how vicious some of these comments were, but I’m not. Its quite obvious from how personal comments generally get that a lot of bitter, jealous, unfulfilled people frequent this blog.

    Anyway, PnP you look gorgeous!! Given how reluctant you are to reveal your faces, you’re a LOT prettier than I expected both of you to be :-)

    I especially love Priyanka’s look, although in the spirit of fashion critique (and the fact that you often urge celebs to do something different with their hair+ makeup) I’ll say that Payal could have been a bit more adventurous with her hair and makeup.

    But the important thing is that you girls are getting some serious recognition for your work in a lot of places. Congratulations and you’re both gorgeous! :-)

  23. To ADD and be very articulate…. DK’s comment is soo soo mean…so you are clearly a person who focuses more on a product’s packaging rather than its features, qualities and performance. You dont believe in personalities but following trends and be one of the “wannabes”. External looks and appearance are so much important for such people that profound qualities, intellect are mere words.
    Payal and Priya are not only keen observers, have a classy taste, hardly mock anyone and also thier opinions and comments are well versed… very well put together everything… it is definitely an art and talent not everyone has and they deserve nothing but applauds.. Some ppl just njoy being nasty to others.

    Been a regular here for a while now.. and the fact that you girls keep it clean (not being vicious) keeps bringing me back.

    Wishing you girls more success and hoping that you retain your humility, like you have, so far. :)

  35. wow, and with this one post, the termites all crawled out of the woodwork, huh?

    I wonder what makes them think that you need to have a 24 inch waist to have taste and an opinion on fashion. The fact that they frequent this blog says that these trolls have an interest in critiquing fashion too. So why not put up their own pictures along with the comments and make it an even playing field, huh? I’m sure P&P as well as the rest of us wouldn’t mind seeing who these models of perfection are, who want to stone others.

    P&P congratulations on your hard won fame. You guys do an awesome job and even the OA knows that he is not to disturb me when I am reading HHC over my midnight cup of cocoa.

    That said, I do wish Vogue had made more of an effort with Payal’s hair. In this, I blame them, not you. Be it models or real women, it is the magazine’s job to make an effort with the way they look, particularly if it is a fashion magazine, not a newspaper.

    Again, congratulations and ignore the naysayers. This is the closest they will ever get to fame and success so let them touch your hem.

  37. I like Priyanka’s photo here and the difference between Priyanka and Payal is the confidence. Payal’s uneasiness shows.

    For a fashion site, you are never bitchy and you criticize in a very dignified way.

    Having said all that, I think if you guys are normal size( and to all the commentators here – these girls are normal not some abnormal stick figures), I would have expected you guys to be little more tolerant towards other people’s size as well.

  39. First of all, congrats! Mention in Vogue is great.

    That being said, I am disappointed with the styling and makeup in the pics. Granted you are not celebrities, but a more flattering ensemble and makeup and flattering pictures would have done a world of good.

  40. OK, I have to say this. For two women who comment on so many other people’s style, you two really disappoint here. Yes you’re not celebrities and do not have perfect figures or features, but surely styling goes beyond that and plays up your best and downplays your worst? You know that, right? The horrific dresses, the shoes and oh god the hair, the hair! And what’s with the unflattering makeup?
    You could have done so much better!
