In Nikhil Thampi


Aditi walked the IIFA Utsavam green carpet on day two wearing a Nikhil Thampi lehenga from the designer’s latest collection. The navy lehenga with its all over embroidery did feel busy but Ms. Hydari pulled off the separates with quite ease. Credit for that goes a lot more to her.

In Twos


Aditi attended the audio launch of her upcoming movie with Mani Rathnam first in Chennai wearing a Tarun Tahiliani anarkali and then in Hyderabad in a Raw Mango lehenga.

While she looked pretty in both, I really liked the Raw Mango look. It’s not easy to pull off a milkmaid braid.

In Shriya Som


Aditi attended the Ritz Style Awards on Sunday evening in Chennai wearing a one-shouldered Sriya Som gown. A tousled ponytail, exaggerated brows and a pink lip finished out her look.

I loved the pairing of the floral embroidered gown with the floral Topshop sandals. It added a nice visual interest to the look that was quite unexpected.

Like her appearance here?

The Seven Somethings


While many of us are still struggling with the February Already syndrome, India’s first fashion week of the year has come and gone. Held at Mumbai’s JioGarden from February 1- 5, Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017 transported me to a mostly Mai Tai state of mind. I say mostly because sometimes I found myself in a sangeet.

Anyway, a little over a week later and here are the seven things that I still find myself thinking about…

1. You Go Gen Next!
Starring a bunch of talented designers, LFW’s Gen Next Show kickstarts each edition. Some of these debutants go on to launch super successful labels, others win coveted awards and a few manage to do both. Two labels that caught my eye this season were Soumodeep Dutta for his unmistakable Bengal school of fashion vibe and Poochki for their billowing breezy separates.

2. The Exploding Galaxy
Not the Samsung phones but just the ridiculous number of stars that descend down on one fashion week. (The ridiculous number of fashion weeks is a whole other column). Sushmita Sen, Bipasha Basu, Tabu, Diana Penty, Malaika Arora Khan, Daisy Shah, Padma Lakshmi. Sophie Choudry, Vaani Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari, Nimrat Kaur, Preity Zinta, Swara Bhaskar, Ayesha Takia… Showstopper. Overkill.

3. I Need Some AM.IT In My Life
Patola fused into plastic in AM.IT by Amit Aggarwal’s collection aptly titled Seamless. His pieces occupy the top 10 spots in my wishlist. Discarded saris, signature metallics and green means (and end) of fashion, this collection makes the right noises and looks equally fabulous. Now if only I can pre-order one of those dramatic pieces. And then find an OMG enough place to wear it to.


4. DeBo IS A Thing
Thanks to my blogger friends Priyanka and Payal who very helpfully coined the acronym DeBo (Desi Bohemian ICYMI), I am now convinced more than ever that DeBo is legit. Especially since nothing else seems to describe some looks from Label Ritu Kumar’s Maharaja Pop.

In Forever New


Aditi did black head to toe at the Dangal Success bash in a Forever New dress, Saint Laurent clutch and Steve Madden sandals. Did the look lack punch or did you like the simplicity of it? I fall in the latter category.
