Of Wedding Festivities

The Ambani-Piramal reception took place on Friday evening in Mumbai where the newly weds were finally spotted together. Surprising, the bride who wore Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla for her wedding and Manish Malhotra to her sangeet, opted for a custom lehenga by Valentino. Can’t say we are surprised.

The question is, will more international labels start catering towards the Indian market. We know Needle & Thread making a sari last year that was available on Net-A-Porter. Guess, time will tell!

Our congratulations to the newly weds.

Malaika helped audition models for the upcoming Lakme Fashion Week wearing a three-piece suit by Ashish N Soni with necklaces from Swarovski and gold Louboutin pumps.

I am a sucker for suits that fit well and by default, loved her here. Did you as well?

Of Receptions

Wearing her Mom’s sari which she seems to have converted into a lehenga (going by her IG post), Esha attended the Ambani-Piramal wedding reception on Friday evening.

I like the idea of transforming the sari but given the dull gold border, I wish she’d gone easy on the jewellery and the eye makeup.

Two recent appearances, two minis… A definite change from Indian-wear she’s been mostly favoring for promotions up until now. Wavy hair, non-statement-y lip color and platform heels rounded out her look both times. Sara wore both the multi-color Hemant and Nandita number and the sparkly beaded Topshop mini well.

Wearing a Tarun Tahiliani lehenga, Raveena attended another wedding in Mumbai recently. Diamond and emerald jewelry and a gold-toned potli rounded out her look.

She looked nice but really wish that blouse/choli didn’t have sheer sleeves… It single-handedly brings down the look a notch or two. If the purpose is to bring in some weightlessness (and I am only guessing here) to an otherwise heavy lehenga, why not just go sleeveless or with short-sleeves to balance out the weightiness of the outfit?!
