In J Mendel

24

Priyanka attended the Bazaar 150 anniversary party on Wednesday evening in NYC wearing a J Mendel printed gown featuring a keyhole neckline. Don’t know about you but I was left feeling quite underwhelmed by this look. It felt very one-toned which could’ve been easily resolved with a dark burgundy lip.

What did you think of her look?

Double The Bibhu Spotting

It was double Bibhu delight on Gossip Girl’s latest episode ‘Touch Of Eva‘. Bibhu Mohapatra‘s creation were spotted for the first time on-screen and it wasn’t just Katie Cassidy wearing one. Also wearing Bibhu (sort of) was lead actress Blake Lively. We say sort of because it actually is a J.Mendel design that Bibhu worked on during his years at the design house.

Here’s to many more sightings of Mr. Mohapatra’s designs and something tells us, we won’t be left waiting for too long!

A Grecian Ode

There were a lot of Grecian influences on the runways this season (in Spring/Summer 2008 collections) and the ‘Toga’ was most apparant. Why, the fashion doyenne herself, Priya Tanna, editor of Vogue India, was seen flaunting the silhouette in a Tarun Tahiliani created ensemble, few months ago at the Vogue India launch. (picture, above)

A Toga is essentially a loose flowing outer garment, which in the ancient times, was worn by Romans, usually, made of a single piece of cloth that covered the entire body leaving the right arm bare. And, most designers in their collections re-interpreted this flowing silhouette which really is a very flattering drape.

Here’s just a quick peek at different designers’, different takes…
