Wish List Wednesday!

16

Slacked off on these Wish Lists, didn’t we? So without much further delay, (drumroll please) here’s one!

Ms. Saran was an easy pick for the series. Beautiful woman, unfortunate sartorial choices. She tends to favor a certain kind of sari, a certain kind of dress… And if not stuck in that rut, the hair and make-up seem to let her down. Below is our wishful indulgence… How we’d love to see her in any/all of ’em! Some are bit of a stretch but, think twice why don’t you?!

Shriya Saran

It’d be great to see Ms. Saran pick Indian-wear that wasn’t the tried and tested, her go-to sheer and/or blingy options. Styled differently to work off the runway, each of these looks would look great on her. A soft braided updo and a statement necklace with the sari-inspired Tarun dress or the Kotwara one with the dupatta worn more casually and plaited hair would make for such a great change!

L To R: Anju Modi, Krishna Mehta, Kotwara By Meera Muzaffar Ali And Tarun Tahiliani

We’d love to see more pared down, minimalist tinged looks on Shriya. There is no reason to fall back on bling for every Red Carpet appearance, is there now? Look at that JJ Vallaya gown, impactful without assaulting the senses. How we’d love to see that off the runway!

L To R: Shantanu And Nikhil, Swapnil Shinde, JJ Vallaya And Deepika Govind

It can’t always be floor-sweeping gowns, can it? These looks below are worthy of their moment and, we know with just the right hair, make-up and accessories, there’s no reason why Shriya can’t have a moment in them. That Namrata Joshipura look is practically made for Shriya. And look, it’s not tacktastic. (P.S: The Joshipura skirt could be yours!)

L To R: Pankaj And Nidhi, Rohit Gandhi And Rahul Khanna, Namrata Joshipura And Adarsh Gill

We know Ms. Saran loves her maxis, wish she’d try some quirky printed ones too. Like the Rimi Nayak one. You are young. And you only live once! ;) It’d be great to see her in an easy-breezy dress like the Anita Dongre one too.

And now, this is the part where we cross our fingers!

Wish List Wednesday!

12

You didn’t think we had forgotten, did you? This week, the beautiful Ms. Dixit is up.

Though it’s easy to miss, Madhuri has given us quite the range on these pages. It’s just that the misses have out-numbered the hits often times earning her a one word critique- dated. We believe majority of the blame lies with the hair, when the clothes are okay that is.

This was a fun exercise, indulgent at best. While some of these looks are a no-brainer for her, for others, you may have to leave your imagination-hat on for just a second longer. With the right hair, make-up and accessories, there’s not one look below that we can’t even envision on her. Some slightly modified of course.

Wish List Wednesday!

24

Excuse us while we indulge ourselves a bit! Every Wednesday we’ll do a Wish List… Of looks we’d love to see on some of the lovely ladies featured on these pages.

As we even begin to put these together, we realize there are just sooo many looks and designers to choose from, we are overwhelmed even before we’ve started. Luckily for us, we are suckers for some goold ‘ol Fun, and Fun this is. Do remember, we are just going to pick ’em as we remember/recall ’em. And we’ll only be picking looks from Indian designers and from collections that are most or more recent.

So starting off the series with… Priyanka Chopra.

Priyanka Chopra

Ms. Chopra more often than not, sticks to neutrals. And when she does do color, it’s almost always deep, berry tones. Prints are not something we’ve seen her gravitate to. Keeping that in mind, here are some looks that are just outside of her comfort zone but not thaat big a leap that’d she’d be too wary of ’em.

L To R: Rimzim Dadu, Sanchita, Tarun Tahiliani, Shrivan And Narresh


L To R: JJ Vallaya, Raakesh Agarvwal, Nachiket Barve And Anaikka


L To R: Manish Malhotra, Shantanu And Nikhil, Tarun Tahiliani And James Ferreira

If however Ms. Chopra was inclined to do a complete 360…

L To R: Bodice, Gaurav Gupta, Pankaj And Nidhi And Sashikant Naidu

P.S: Who would you like to see featured next week? Tell us!
