Elephanta Tales

16

If you live in London, you’ve probably noticed brightly colored baby elephants all around the streets. These baby elephants are part of the Elephant Parade, a conservation campaign that is trying to highlight the crisis faced by endangered Asian elephant.

Corporations, fashion designers and artists came together to put this project together and there are several of them featuring Indian influences too. From the design world, designers Abu-Sandeep, Manish Arora and Tarun Tahiliani have one of their own. From the arts world, Nilesh Mistry got to design not one but three.

But, the most surprising part of the parade has got to be that all the IPL Teams also have one of their own. Where India is concerned, Cricket does trump everything else.

Catch all of the designs inside and thanks ‘Kirthi’ for bringing the parade to our attention.

P.S. If you can’t cover it all (considering they are spread out all over the city), you can catch all of the elephants on the official viewing days at the Royal Hospital Chelsea on the 25th, 26th and 28th of June. Get more info Here.

Wearing It Again

Both Aishwarya and Sussanne attended Laila Khan’s Wedding reception wearing not only Abu Jani/Sandeep Khosla outfits but also ones we’ve seen them donned before and between the two, much preferred Sussanne because I like the pink on her and also liked that she went without a necklace this time. (You can catch the previous appearances here and here and a closeup pic of Ash from the reception inside.)

Aishwarya made an appearance (with father-in-law AB Sr.) at Shilpa’s reception wearing the same Abu Jani/Sandeep Khosla pink anarkali seen on her back in 2007 at an event in New York. The color looks great on her but those rhinestone patterns are still a turnoff. (or maybe I hate it more just because it brings back memories of a certain Ms. Balan from Filmfare Awards.)

Wearing It Two Ways

Now that Ms. Khanna’s given us two different looks keeping the accessories (the B Romanek clutch and pumps) common, which look do you prefer? The one in the purple Badgley Mischka or the white Abu-Sandeep.

Aishwarya and Abhishek at IIFA Awards 2009

Like Sonam, Aishwarya also seemed to be saving the best for last because this Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla sari was a sight for sore eyes after the Nachiket Barve frock that we saw on her on day one. As for Abhishek, his suit was great but the gelled spiky hair was a put-off, for me atleast.

Check out new pictures from the IIFA 2009 Fashion Extravaganza at The Gallery.
