You’ve already seen a few of Ms. Chadha’s looks from the red carpet, here are the rest of the ones she sported while at Cannes, each very different and better than the other.

Are you able to pick a favorite? We sure can’t. It’s a four-way tie for us between the Rohit + Rahul, Giles and Nupur Kanoi.

Richa, whose film Masaan is being shown at Cannes in the Un Certain Regard category, attended the photocall today wearing a strapless Giles dress from the Fall 2015 collection. After Cate Blanchett, who wowed in a gown a few days earlier from the same collection, Richa is the second to wear a dress from the collection at the festival. The choice of designer was quite unexpected but we have no complaints. After seeing quite a few Saabs, this made for a very good change!

Showcasing the abstract print dress even more was the updo, simple necklace and nude pumps. She looked fabulous.

Spring 2013: Behind Bars

5

Barely into Fall, Spring 2013 fashion is upon us. And so, let’s talk Stripes, shall we?

As a woman of girth… What, not very pc? Okay, as a woman of curves, I have always held a bit of an obsessive fascination with stripes. I was told you can’t wear ’em and so naturally, I always have. You know, the same way we were told to stay off the bad boys? So bad, SO good.

Spring 2013: Christian Dior, Balmain, Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana

I love stripes. Both the nautical and jailbird variety. But, they don’t always work on you, you know. They add width, those horizontal ones. Vertical ones, more forgiving (but not entirely, not always). Then what’s the trick you ask? The one size fits all answer of course, figure out what works for you. And if Spring 2013 is any indication of things to come, you better be well on the path to self-discovery already.

Spring 2013: Giles, Michael Kors, Christopher Kane, Rachel Zoe

Personally for me, the trick lies in mixing stripes. Not only does it create a graphic geometric effect, it also is dizzyingly flattering. The other, play a game of peek-a-boo. Pair a horizontal top under a jacket/cardi and you should be okay. Even those of you whose, umm, cups runneth over. Either way, give it a shot.

Spring 2013: Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, Etro, Oscar de la Renta, Moschino

French seaside, classic Americana. Retro. Vintage. It’s hard not to romanticize stripes or denounce their classic appeal. Or work in a pop-culture reference to make it (even more) current. But what am wondering is, 2012 is already winding down? Where the hell did the year go?
