Day one of IIFA Utsavam festivities saw Rakul in a lilac SVA lehenga, one that she wore with diamond jewellery from Dyamor. While she looked pretty, I wish the lehenga didn’t have that black lining peeking through.

Minor gripe but the issue is once you see it, you can’t quite unsee it either.

Wearing a SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi gown, Juhi who features on Better Homes And Gardens’ cover this month, helped unveil its latest issue. Earrings from Anmol Jewellers and a cocktail ring from Jet Gems completed the look.

Though Ms. Chawla looked nice, wish we’d see her in something more tailored, less flashy and just a tad more contemporary.

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.

Pairing black separates with a SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi jacket, Juhi attended Divya Dutta’s book launch. Her choice of accessories for the evening included earrings from Aquamarine.

Personally, we weren’t big on the jacket, nor did we think the ott earrings were necessary. That said however, Juhi made the look work for her.

Sophie visited a local Ganesh Utsav pandal on Friday wearing an orange SVA lehenga and earrings from Amrapali. While I like the printed skirt, the choli with that big dot design looked really awkward. And it was even more in your face because Ms. Choudry wore her dupatta on the arms. Just me feeling that way?

That isn’t to say Sophie didn’t look nice. She did.
