Liz’s Indian Avatars


I must say, I was inspired to do this post after reading this rediff post. It got me intrigued after reading it, as to how many times Mrs Nayar been sporting the look.

I must say, after the first few times, the woman has mastered the art of carrying the pallu stylishly!

Saawariyaaaaaaaargh!


The stars were out and about at the premiere of Saawariya, but these stars made it here for all the wrong reasons…

To begin with, Priyanka Chopra shows you how not to do Brocade. I mean really, trifle much, don’t you think? There is so much pattern going on there, makes me almost dizzy!

And then, the lovely Amisha Patel. Someone tell me how does one manage to match their lipstick down to the teeniest tint of their outfit?!

Oh boy! Lovely outfit but don’t think the silhouette’s doing much for Ms. Mukherjee.

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!
