The Seven Somethings

11

While many of us are still struggling with the February Already syndrome, India’s first fashion week of the year has come and gone. Held at Mumbai’s JioGarden from February 1- 5, Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017 transported me to a mostly Mai Tai state of mind. I say mostly because sometimes I found myself in a sangeet.

Anyway, a little over a week later and here are the seven things that I still find myself thinking about…

1. You Go Gen Next!
Starring a bunch of talented designers, LFW’s Gen Next Show kickstarts each edition. Some of these debutants go on to launch super successful labels, others win coveted awards and a few manage to do both. Two labels that caught my eye this season were Soumodeep Dutta for his unmistakable Bengal school of fashion vibe and Poochki for their billowing breezy separates.

2. The Exploding Galaxy
Not the Samsung phones but just the ridiculous number of stars that descend down on one fashion week. (The ridiculous number of fashion weeks is a whole other column). Sushmita Sen, Bipasha Basu, Tabu, Diana Penty, Malaika Arora Khan, Daisy Shah, Padma Lakshmi. Sophie Choudry, Vaani Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari, Nimrat Kaur, Preity Zinta, Swara Bhaskar, Ayesha Takia… Showstopper. Overkill.

3. I Need Some AM.IT In My Life
Patola fused into plastic in AM.IT by Amit Aggarwal’s collection aptly titled Seamless. His pieces occupy the top 10 spots in my wishlist. Discarded saris, signature metallics and green means (and end) of fashion, this collection makes the right noises and looks equally fabulous. Now if only I can pre-order one of those dramatic pieces. And then find an OMG enough place to wear it to.

4. DeBo IS A Thing
Thanks to my blogger friends Priyanka and Payal who very helpfully coined the acronym DeBo (Desi Bohemian ICYMI), I am now convinced more than ever that DeBo is legit. Especially since nothing else seems to describe some looks from Label Ritu Kumar’s Maharaja Pop.

In Rubin Singer

Padma Lakshmi was one of the many celebs to attend the Elton John Aids Foundation Benefit in New York and for the evening event picked an strapless Rubin Singer creation. Going the match route, she paired her orange gown with a coral necklace from Fred Leighton.

She looked gorgeous!

In Naeem Khan

In her silver sequin Naeem Khan gown, Ms. Lakshmi literally sparkled on the Emmy red carpet on Sunday evening in Los Angeles. Was it in a good way though? Not quite.

I don’t mind a statement gown but in this case, it was just too much bling overload. Picture the same gown in a sleeveless v-neck version and I think it would’ve worked way better. I also felt the hair and makeup was a bit lackluster. We’ve seen Ms. Lakshmi do way better.

Were you a fan of the gown?

Padma Lakshmi on Elle:(Un)Covered

Top Chef star Padma Lakshmi graces Elle’s May cover wearing an Hermès maillot with a printed Missoni cape. I can’t remember when was the last time we saw Ms. Lakshmi on the cover so this cover sure made for a nice surprise.

In Romona Keveza

Host of Bravo’s Top Chef, Padma Lakshmi literally glowed on the Emmy Awards red carpet wearing a strapless Romona Keveza. A satin gown is very very hard to pull off but what works in her favor is that color. A bold red lip and a pair of diamond chandelier earrings completed her fabulous red carpet look.

Am still picking up my jaw from the floor.
