In Manish Malhotra

Wearing a Manish Malhotra sari, Sophie attended Ganesh Puja festivities at Sanjay Dutt’s house. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Ms. Choudry in such a sari and while I liked the sari on her, the blouse though, not so much.

At the Ambani Ganesh Chaturthi festivities, Jahnvi was seen wearing a Manish Malhotra lehenga with diamond and emerald jewellery. So far, we haven’t seen this Kapoor delve too much into makeup and we aren’t complaining either.

The fact that she keeps her makeup more on the natural side helps with such looks. It doesn’t look too garish.

Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017: Top 5 Looks

3

Having sifted through the usual winter party cocktail mix of faux fur, sequins, leather and big earrings, here are five new looks/trends that stood out from the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017.

Volume With A Side Of More Volume
Cocktail dresses are fine, but something has to be said to said about a woman in high waist graphic pants and a high shine metallic blouse. 431-88 sent out their ‘Studio 5’4 top tucked into a 70s style pant. The tuck in did the trick. And here I have spent so many days trying to ‘balance’ a voluminous bottom with a fitted top.

The Sculpted Sari
A contemporary style story set in a vintage backdrop, Amit Aggarwal is one of the most lusted labels on these pages. This season, we can’t stop staring at his saris. His signature moulding and cording, architectural/industrial vibe, high sheen and structure in his fortified weaves, now to wait and watch when those saris and bodices make an appearance on the red carpet.

Sheer Bomber + Dress
At a time when your fashion maverick-ness is gauged by the art of layering, and a statement dress just isn’t enough, I am totally stealing Falguni & Shane Peacock’s sheer bomber + dress idea. I may have to replace the sequin on the dress with something less sparkly like a stripe but am definitely prioritizing the hunt for a sheer bomber. This is just the perfect antidote to the times I refused to ‘cover’ the dress with a jacket, and a stole just didn’t make the cut. (TBH I did go through a phase when I thought draping a shawl over dress was genius styling. Feel free to judge me, I am too!)

The Big Mix
Every few months I resolve to be that fashion forward person who effortlessly mixes textures and clashes prints. Then, I just go back to wearing blue jeans with anything and everything. I envy the ease with which Gen Next designers Saaksha & Kinni mixed a sequin spangled skirt with stripes and floral.

Tug Of Tassel
Favored by everyone alike, from emerging labels like Monika Nidhii (in picture) and doyens like Manish Malhotra, what’s Winter/Festive without some tassel or fringe-induced drama? PS: Whether or not I get my hands on a fringed skirt or blouse, am definitely not taking off my tassel earrings this entire season!

At Manish Malhotra’s show, Richa was photographed in a sari by the designer. Skipping jewelry, she rounded out her look with side-swept hair and a box clutch. Ms. Chadha looked lovely!

Wearing an embellished Manish Malhotra dress, Dia sat front row at the designer’s show. Big hair and metallic ankle-strap sandals rounded out her look.

Both the choice of dress and its styling made for an interesting change of pace. That said, am not sold on the look. But Dia by virtue of being Dia, fared better than most others would have in it; she almost made it work.
