    A face (or two) to the website! I’m going to hunt you guys down… To say hi. :)
    I must be honest though (And I mean it in the best way possible…I thought you were a couple of middle aged women, married, possibly blingy and an exquisite range of hand bags to go with it all)

    But you’re young! (ah, you’ll get there some day!)

    Cheers to you guys, my guilty pleasure. :)

    Keep them posts coming you guys!
    All the love and luck in the world.

      My thoughts exact…thought u guys were some middle aged women…but my my i was wrong

      1. Adara at | | Reply

        HA! If you followed the blog closely you would have had umpteen clues that say they are in their late 20’s and are married. ;-)

          Sheesh, okay. Uhm…I’m sorry?

    Also, In my opinion. You guys should do a fashion entry on each other! We want to know your style! Everyone who’s with me say Ay.

    Hugs back at you both…. Congrats! This is HUGE.

    We finally get to see you both. You gals look so sweet, and are tough enough to send shivers down the designers and celebrities.

      On another note, are they kissing up to Gauri Khan? “Always, always gets it right?” NOT.

          That was my thought exactly. Kudos to you guys UNTIL…the Gauri Khan caption.
          After that I began to dismiss the credibility of the whole article.

    congrats, we can finally put a face to the name. I must disagree with some of the other individuals who made the list. Gauri over shadowing her husband? not a chance. I like Gauri, but she can never over shadow her husband.

    congrats girls… for making the fashion power list!
    the text tho… i object to it… makes it seem that you guys prefer bitchy comments… when more often than not i’ve seen you being super kind (even to those who least deserve it). even your whatheeyyyss are pretty gentle :)

    um….i know i am probably the only person here who thinks this, but being put in a fashion power list with anu dewan and avantika birla is nothing to be happy about.

    especially if you are fashion bloggers who presume to tell your readers what is tasteful and what is not!

    anyway, i’m happy that you’re happy :)

    Congratulations! Great work, guys!
    On a different note, I too disagree with Gauri Khan’s inclusion on the list. Nothing against her, but her presence at Indian fashion shows can’t be of much real significance; she never wears anything but Cavalli and other foreign labels. Furthermore, her taste is often rather suspect. Twinkle Khanna would have been a more justifiable presence on that section – not only is she stylish and tasteful, but she also wears lots of Anamika Khanna and Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla; she is definitely more of an arbiter of fashion on the Indian scene.

    It is rily nice 2 c u girls.. now I understand Y u were hiding from us all these days. U girls look so so ordinary with zero fashion sense. Looks like You girls live ur fantasies by criticizing others… U knew u were going to be featured in Vogue n dis is d best u cud look?? lolz..
    Anyway… I don want to congratulate jus for the sake of it.. as someone already mentioned.. having been featured along wid Anu, Avanti n Gauri, U don have many thing to be happy about.

    4. lush at | | Reply

      And what exactly is wrong with being South Indian? You talk like being South Indian is a disease….. don’t forget the worlds most beautiful woman is Aishwarya Rai ( and before you argue that shes not I don’t mean it literally…. but if you do a search on the worlds most beautiful woman on google her name comes up first), anyway my point is if you talk about anyone from any part of India like this North, South, East or west you need to get a life buddy!

      1. ABC at | | Reply

        omg… all those who hv commented upon my remarks.. i m really surprised to see UR OWN NARROW THINKING… wen did i say tht being south indian, obese or middle aged is a crime… or those kinda ppl dnt hv fashion sense… all i wanted to say ws tht, since PnP nevr showed their pics, so i used to think tht may be they r obese… n no doubt abt their fashio sense… bt i thought tht may be they wd be under impression tht it wd be best to disguise themselves in tht situation… n it turned out to b tht they r nt obese n are infact r very b’ful… n yes, wen i said south indian.. i meant tht frm their choice of saris, it is quite apparent they belong to south india.. as most of ppl in north like blingy things with bright colors… n nw let me tell u one thing… i m north indian n my BF is south indian, n i do hv a lot of south indian frnds.. so i very well knw the ups n downs of both communities… n PLUS I NEVR WROTE ALL THT IN ANY SUCH INTENTION.. u totally misinterpretd my comment, n gave it a differnt meaning by focusing on south indian part… n well, all thsoe who think tht i need to get a life… i just want to say one thing…

    Hi P & P,
    Congrats on the Vogue List! Also, don’t worry about the negative comments, because you know you have truly arrived when people have both positive and negative opinions on your blog. Enjoy the accolades and just lock away the negative feedback (especially if it’s mean spirited). I don’t always agree with your analysis, but really appreciate the space you have created to discuss fashion of South Asian celebrities and artists. :)

  61. sorry ! at | | Reply

    I am sorry guys, but I don’t know how and why you both made it . IT IS VOGUE ! They should lift their standards. You both are gossip meddlers who provide gossip to some very very voracious people. It should have been Ambika Anand and/or Vinod Nair. You are a tabloid blog with a very , very lousy grammar.
    I think Vogue knew that you would post this up on your blog, and who wouldn’t mind getting free marketing ?

    1. swati at | | Reply

      They are there because they run what is probably India’s most famous fashion blog. Because they bring fashion to the regular people who don’t have the money to spend on couture, who don’t move around in birkin circles but still have an opinion on it because, well because they all love fashion and beautiful clothes.

      As for gossip, two words – I WISH! …. whenever i tried to sneak in gossip on actors, my comments got deleted … If anything, your criticism should have been that they don’t allow any gossip and kill half the fun of it all! … just imagine hundreds of girls (and some guys) log in every day to see who is wearing what and don’t even get to share any naughty gossip …. Criminal.

      And if vogue wanted to get free publicity, wouldn’t they have featured a lot more of the fashion blogs floating around ? … And they would have been better off choosing another blog because i distinctly remember P&P criticising their un-inspiring covers more than once ….

      Seriously, i’m sure there are a couple of legitimate faults with HHC. but what you have listed is just plain silly. Come up with something better and then we will talk.

    2. NotSorry at | | Reply

      I second that. Plus they kiss Vogue’s ass a lot. That’s why they feature all the pseudo-socialites like the Birlas, etc.

    3. RucHii at | | Reply

      4 questions…
      1) Vogue desperate for free marketing..??
      2) Were you featured in one( or more) of the WTheyys..??
      3) Jealous..??
      4) Why you wasting your time on this ‘tabloid blog’..??

      Lighten up man..!! neither Vogue nor HHC is bout world peace..!! SMILE :)

    4. Sal(SS) at | | Reply

      Bitter much? HHC has NEVER been about the gossip, which you would know if you actually paid any attention to its content. Seriously, all your allegations seem so flimsy and reek of bitchiness. HHC has never claimed to be about an academic point of view on fashion; the girls have always freely and cheerfully admitted that they’re doing this for fun. And they’re doing it mighty well, I’d say. The coverage of the fashion weeks and other major fashion events in India is meticulous, P and P never seem unfairly biased. and yet are unabashed about their opinion, and it’s all done in a light-hearted, joyous spirit. As for their grammar, I can’t help but point out that people who live in glass houses shouldn’t be so eager to cast stones. “Gossip meddlers”? “A very, very lousy grammar”? If I were you, and so very anxious about grammatical precision, I’d have proofread my comment before posting it. I admit that the grammar on HHC isn’t always perfect, but then neither is the grammar on The Sartorialist. The girls manage to keep their content readable, interesting and informed, and I give them major props for that.

    5. eclat at | | Reply

      I don’t want to nit-pick or be nasty about the people you mentioned, but, I like HHC so…

      #1 Gossip meddlers? “A” very very lousy grammar?

      #2 Ambika Anand is no style maven. I think she needs to correct quite a few pronunciations of her own. I’ve noticed on her show that she mangles the pronunciation of almost all the brands she name drops. In any case, the fashion input is probably more from Mohan Neelakanthan than the lady herself, so if anyone needs to feature, it’s him.

      And finally #3. Vinod Nair- are you kidding me? Have you read his blog on the Hindustan Times page? I remember when he first began, he wrote “courgette” or something instead of “cleavage”!!! I called him out on it in the comments section. Of course, it was never approved. Now of course, that post itself has been deleted.

      P & P: This comment may not pass yr rigorous screening. Pls feel free to edit, but do post the pertinent bits!

  64. Sin at | | Reply

    Congratulations! You truly deserved it! Just becoz they included Gauri Khan or some other celebrities who don’t deserve the space doesn’t mean your inclusion is any less worthier. You know fashion and everybody here learnt atleast a thing or two here about fashion from you. I can’t believe some people here are saying that this is a gossip blog when you have such strict rules about talking about anything other than fashion. I also cant believe that some people here thought that you were obese just because you didnt want your pictures plastered all over the website. This is a blog about fashion, designers and what celebrities are wearing and if P&P want their privacy, we should let them have it.

    It was really nice to put a face to all these posts and you guys are really pretty but putting up more pictures of yourselves and posts about your personal style is your choice. We love you with/without them! May you get more mentions, (even exclusive articles of just you guys) coz you truly deserve it!

    1. sri at | | Reply

      true that! just becuz PnP are fashion critics doesnt mean they have to be fashionistas. we have film critics, that doesnt mean they have to be good actors or know acting!
      to be asked to show their closets or personal style or their pics(when they dont want to) is simply putting pressure!
      want to congratulate P n P and hope u continue posting on the blog in the same manner or better. Do what u like to do guys, that is analysing fashion sense of celebrities and showing us good clothes, bags and shoes. if u go off the track we will still suck it up. kudos!
