Ashley: Part Deux


The YouthAids Benefit Gala “Faces of India” was an interesting night. While Padma Lakshmi and Miss India Puja Gupta decided to wear dresses, Ashley Judd looked gorgeous in a silk purple sari! And this time Ashley had the bindi on in the right place!

Limited Edition Dior ‘India’ Saddle Bag


John Galliano designed 12 limited edition Dior Saddle Bags, those inspired by Mexico, China, Russia among others! But what interests us, is of course the ‘India’ saddle bag!

The nudge at an old-world elaborate nose-ring isn’t lost on anyone and while a little garish ,and I do wonder why most Indian inspired things are, its fun!

John Galliano in honour of his 10th anniversary at the house, designed 12 saddle bags, each paying tribute to the 12 countries that have inspired him during his time with Dior! While a little loud and over the top, they are still being touted as good investment pieces!

Of course the news of these bags is trifle old but the reason I write is, I saw a lady at the Delhi airport carrying a bag that looked remarkably like the saddle but very, very Indianised and when I went up to her and asked if it was Dior, she said “Nahin ji, GK se liya hai”! (No, I got it from GK)(*GK, a marketplace in Delhi) :) And ‘that’ turned to ‘this’ post!

On an aside, I just got into India! And in true High Heel spirit the first thing I did was to buy Vogue India at the airport! (Family has mentioned therapy but we are working on it!)

Eeeks Ekta!


How do you ruin a good grey dress. You wear nude panty hose and put on slides! That is what Ekta Kapoor did at the Zee Rishto Ka Utsav event.

Here is a tip for you, Dear Ekta. Never wear open toe shoes if you are wearing panty hose! And get rid of those ugly slides too!

Aishwarya In Christian Audigier


Just when we were wondering “where in the world” is Aishwarya… we spotted her at the Beyonce concert sporting a casual look. But this casual look doesn’t come easy on the wallet. The tunic that Mrs. Bachchan is wearing can set you back a whopping $165 and that is because it is a Christian Audigier.

If have no idea who Christian Audigier is, he is the man behind all the craze that’s Ed Hardy. We don’t have to tell you how many people are already wearing Ed Hardy these days in Bollywood, you can take a peek here and here!

Get your own CA “Barbwire” Tunic here.

Tannishtha Transformed


We caught Tannishta Chatterjee looking pretty good in an Alberta Ferretti black cocktail dress that she wore to the premiere of Brick Lane.


For a woman who wore clear bra straps(a big no no!) under a halter neck dress, she definitely has come a long way. Hopefully, all the international exposure will do good to her fashion style.
