In Gaurav Gupta


At an event for a brand that she endorses, Ms. Koechlin was seen in a fiery red Gaurav Gupta gown.

There wasn’t much to fault, the gown paired with the soft updo and the red lip made for a great look.

Shimmer And Shine?


Aishwarya made a rare appearance at Manish’s party wearing a Gaurav Gupta shimmery gown. Unfortunately, with the hair worn the way she did, the gown pick seemed like a wasted opportunity.

With a face like that, I’d wear my hair in a ponytail or top knot, all the time. :P

What did you think of the shimmery outfit?

India Couture Week — The Roundup


FDCI’s India Couture Week 2017 recently wrapped up in New Delhi and that means we got a good look at the upcoming bridal trends! ;)
Celebrating its 10th edition this year, the event was everything that you would expect. Larger than life sets; sequins and shimmer; swanky venue; weighty FROW; Bollywood show stoppers; Rohit Bal’s signature floor grazers, each more voluminous than the previous and a glittery Manish Malhotra finale starring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh.
Seven days, 14 designers and at least 500 looks. Read on to find out why Manav Gangwani and Rina Dhaka stole the show. Just kidding! Here are some highlights of the week that was.   

I was not kidding about the bridal trends and if there is one trend that is clearer now than ever, it’s that the lehnga-choli can be well on its way to an extinct combination. Worn with lehngas and saris, these new age capes, cold-shoulder blouses and trapeze tops are so forgiving. Breathe (or eat) easy, would-be brides!

Anamika Khanna opened this year’s event with an installation titled Happily Ever After at The Kila in Seven Style Mile. Segmented into Welcome Lunch, Mehndi, Cocktails and Wedding, the collection amalgamated traditional Indian techniques with a modern Indian vibe, with twist and turns that Anamika is known to pull off. Pretty pastels to fiery reds, intricate embroidery and heirloom Benarasi textile interplayed with her spectacular silhouettes… I can go on and on. In short, everything made it to my lust list.

It’s not couture week, if you don’t spend time obsessing over saris. It wasn’t tough to narrow down my list. I love the maximalist-minimalist vibe of Rahul Mishra’s Parsi gara embroidered, organza scallop sari and I know Monisha Jaising’s sari-inspired gown will be seen on these pages soon. Gaurav Gupta’s pre-draped sexy Grecian sari was showcased in a lovely new mauve and Sabyasachi turned to his quintessential red matka. (Though he skipped India Couture Week for an Instagram reveal, you can’t ignore Sabya when talking about the sari.)

Okay, can we take another moment and talk about Shweta Bachchan in that white shirt? Paired with a Manish Malhotra skirt and accessorized with a gripoix buckled Chanel belt, she worked that look. I know some of you liked it and some didn’t, personally I thought that white shirt made for quite a fashion moment and I will be taking mine out soon!

ICW 2017: On The Runway


The India Couture Week recently concluded in Delhi and as expected there were plenty of showstoppers from the cinematic world. Some fared well, some not so quite. Yep, we’re looking at you, Huma.

While Shilpa wore her brocade gown well, I wasn’t a fan of that puffy blouse. Alia sure shimmered in her Swarovski top but what was going on with that skirt? Between the color and the rosettes, we were not fans. Not one bit.

Between the men, Arjun had our vote in the classic velvet.

Who were your favorites?

Catch the rest of the folks inside.

In Gaurav Gupta


For her appearance at the IIFAs, Bipasha picked a Gaurav Gupta gown. With her hair slicked back in to a ponytail, she rounded out the look with a striking red lip.

If there was anyone who could’ve pulled off this gown, it was her. And neck-up, you just can’t fault Ms. Basu. But, and there’s a but coming, she lost us at the dress. The peekaboo navel through the sheer panel just made the gown look so dated. We weren’t fans.
