Vision (Hardly) In White : A Faceoff


Both Rituparna and Neetu Chandra went with white leggings and diaphanous white tops with asymmetrical lengths as far as their choice of outfits go, and, I really can’t say who was styled better because both were, umm, well lets just say, it didn’t work!

But, if you just had to choose who’d you pick?

Did we just stumble upon a trend though? Look what Priyanka Chopra wore to a recent event…

Bloom’ing Love


If you thought that influences of the ‘garden-variety’ were limited to the clothes in the Spring 2008 collections, you are wrong! The inevitable happened and the influence tipped over onto accessories as well.

Thankfully, not much of that happened because no matter what they say, I just don’t think lugging around a floral bag that costs $$$$ is fashionable! But some of these shoes were cute (ooh, Blahnik!!)…as were some of the pieces of jewellery that I saw, again, emphasis on ‘some’!!

A Spring Swirl


A heavy dose of petals, leaves, stems and all kinds of flowers were seen in collections of various designers in their Spring 2008 Ready-To-Wear collections! ‘Floral’ never looked so good before!

Some were seen on very structured outfits, some on not as much, sometimes the colors were a vibrant multi-color explosion of palette and then sometimes there was the dulled monochromatic play but still just as vibrant!

I have never been one for anything floral but how do you say no to Oscar De La Renta or Carolina Herrera? Have you seen those outfits?

Of course, not all that I saw was good (that Valentino outfit!!), but for now, lets only dwell on the fashionably divine.

Officially, Overdosed


Purple was the color du jour at the Halla Bol Premiere and we’ve seen this color surface again and again, and we didn’t call it a season favorite for nothing!

Saw Shahrukh Khan performing at the Airtel Bindaas concert in a Purple velvet suit and can now officially say he has ended my love affair with this season’s strong hue single-handedly! That characterless top that Ayesha Takia wore to the Sunday press meet didn’t do anything in its favor either!

Vest’ed Interest


I saw this picture of Ayesha Takia at the unveiling of BIG 92.7 FM’s ‘Chipak Ke Jeeto Winners’ and her outfit totally reminded me of Kate Moss. Not Ms. Takia, just her choice of clothes.

Vests have been going strong for a while now, seasons and seasons actually but no one put them on the map as much as Kate Moss did. It became one of her (many) signature looks and she sure wears it with élan!

Of Ms. Takia the same can’t be said. On paper it works fine but when you look at the above picture, something is quite off. Maybe its that cheesy high pony? Can’t quite put my finger on what ruins it for me! Of course, being compared to Moss (below) doesn’t help either!
