Christmas celebrations saw Natasha do black and white in an Emilia Wickstead striped dress and a Rahul Mishra mini. Loved her in the Wickstead.

You’ll remember seeing Poorna wear the same Rahul Mishra to the Vanity Fair Oscar party last year here.

  1. Natasha has a dearth of event/weather approriate places to wear her clothes to. She has a wardrobe that is meant for a red carpet event everyday but life is just simple on most days…time with family and friends. That dichotomy is always apparent when she dresses.

    • I really like how simply yet eloquently you phrased that. I feel like most people hate on natasha for having a couture filled wardrobe because of the ‘expense’ aspect which is unfair because everyone should spend their money how they wish. The main issue rather with her wardrobe, is from a practicality point of view. I can’t help but feel like the clothes overshadow the sentimentality of an intimate family gathering like this one.

  2. Doing a farm life themed christmas party (though she deleted that pic from her christamas pics) while the real farmers are dying on Indian capital roads is not cool at all Natasha.

  3. How is this fashion? I wouldn’t wear this even if I paid paid large amounts to do so.

    The first dress is awful with the huge bow behind. The second dress looks like a disheveled toilet paper roll.

    Why? Why? Why would anyone pay huge amounts to wear this?

    Did I not get the fashion memo? What am I missing?
    I will take some unanswered questions to my grave, I guess!

    • There are certain things you just get .Sometimes it depends on the stage at which you are consuming fashion. Imagine a person who likes to dress up simple would just not understand these silhouette , context and the hence the content. It is very similar to mom’s not understanding the utility of torn jeans. You just need to wear and feel and I can never explain it to my dad – oh my mom is very cool .Every year when the photos for the derby are in you should just see the comments . A lot many are not aware that OTT and regulars fascinators /hats are associated with races. I have seen people bashing the celebrities’ when for wearing the fascinators .The very same reason normal janta is not able to grasp the runway fashion – while it is mostly for the impact and showcase range (hence layering of like 4 -5 looks and designers later customize) .It is a culture thing to dislike anyone with wealth hence the riches are especially bashed. Content should be consumed in its universe and not compared with there are kids dying in Africa and you are spending so much ..!! I would wear both the looks in a heartbeat .I dont have that kind of money but heck trickle down theory – very soon it will reach the mases and then we all will wear the same and say mehh see the local brand can do the same when in reality someone innovated the exclusive product once . Also why does everyone has their panties in a bunch ? Fashion is fun , enjoy it , experiment with it , somedays you fail ,someday you look weird and somedays quirky – and let’s just all keep our fake banters for twitter.

  4. I think Natasha looks great in both outfits. Even the mini. She certainly has the figure for it.

    As for event appropriateness, perhaps this is normal for the uber rich?

  5. I’d love to be friends with Ms Poonawalla. Not to borrow her dresses, but for a covid vaccine 😛

    I’ve seen some rude remarks about her. If you listen to her speak, you will find her to be a very well-mannered, grounded person. Not everyone who dresses fashionably, extravagantly or sometimes even outlandishly, is a rich spoilt brat.

  7. Natty Poo (as seems to be her moniker around the celeb circles) explicitly stated in an interview that she will wear a ballgown just to walk down the street if she feels like it, and doesn’t care what anyone thinks. I guess same energy applies for how she dresses during the prosaic days at home. Her pics are excessively curated right down to the matching bespoke family sleepwear, so no surprise to see her appropriating the look of a Christmas gift herself, complete with bow on top. I understand she has money on tap, but so too do women like Priscilla Chan and Melinda Gates and they don’t present in persistent couture mode with CONSTANT garish, ostentatious, noveau riche displays of wealth like she does. Now I’m off to watch the interview of Mark and Priscilla in their home as a palate cleanser for simplicity and class.

    • So if one behaves in a certain way the other should also do the same? Individuality, personal preferences, interest doesn’t count? Does she need to live by your “good taste”

      • No she doesn’t. No one does. But the point of this blog is that celeb pics are presented and we give our opinions on how their fare on fashion. I’m not sure what mental leap you took to go from that to thinking that she needs to live by my good taste. It’s MY opinion that the constant flamboyant flashing of wealth is obscene and distasteful. There are people much richer than she is who don’t dress OTT every single day. There is just no “normal” picture of her ever. She doesn’t give a hoot that I think that and I don’t give a hoot about whether she changes her style. I just expressed my opinion on it. Do you get it, finally?

        • Lol you gave enough hoots to offer multiple explanations on why her style feels the way it does to you. Then you went ahead and compared her to Priscilla Chan and Melinda Gates- women who no one associates with fashion- couture or otherwise. You followed that by making clear you had enough disdain for Natasha’s style to actually go look for a Mark and Priscilla interview as a “palate cleanser.” Not only are you basically comparing apples and oranges; your whole opinion is centered on the premise of *how* these three women choose to spend their wealth. When others correctly point this out to you, you move the goalposts in the name of “I’m simply expressing my opinion.”

          • I completely agree with you here…And Ellemenn.. Maybe you didn’t mean to and so didn’t realise but what you have written here goes far beyond expressing opinion and comes out sounding very judgmental… And indeed the comparisons you are drawing are apples and oranges……

    • Not sure if “Mark” is the right one to emulate here, considering the havoc his SM platforms have caused. He’s not as simple as he looks. So… Maybe I’ll take NP with her over-exuberant taste, and instead thank heaven we have her husband’s Serum lab in India.

    • Mark Z..pls go and take a look at FB history ..
      Here is a woman who loves dressing up, loves doing her own thing, does a lot of good work on the side..why would anybody have grudge with that ?
      Not all women rich or not rich like dressing down. Each her own..if you like people dresses down walk down your neighbourhood street ..
      She owns her looks … any woman is free and should wear what pleases them….not what pleases other women

  8. How is it “garish, ostentatious, noveau riche displays of wealth” – she likes to dress well, she has the means to do it, and most of all, she wants to do it. Why compare her to any of the other folks you have mentioned – it’s her choice how she wants to spend her money.

    Her taste may not be your cup of tea, but target the taste in clothes then, not the person.

    • Yah that’s true.. I like her outlandish fashion ways even for the most normal days, doesn’t matter who she is but she likes being her extravagant self and it’s superb on her. I can’t imagine recognising/spotting Natasha poonawala in jeans n t shirts.

    • I’m not sure you understand the point of commenting or opining on style and fashion choices. We KNOW she has the means to dress expensively (not “dress well” as you state but it’s very revealing that you consider dressing expensively to be synonymous with dressing well). It is my opinion that her style is constantly excessive and “ garish, ostentatious, noveau riche“. My opinion is not YOUR cup of tea, but you seem to be targeting me for it. See? Your own argument can be applied right back to you. Nowhere did I ever claim that it’s not her choice how to spend her money, you constructed a straw man there. It’s 100% her choice on how to spend it and it’s 100% my choice to think she looks caricaturish, obscene and tacky most times.

  9. I love the white dress… with her shoes and bag, and just the right amount of jewellery… even the mask works well.. she wears it better than the model… high impact but effortless!

  10. Sorry but I don’t get this why cannot our celebs be dressed simply, sensibly etc. etc. Imagine if we did not have Deepika’s ridiculous airport looks, Sonam’s frocks and NatP’s bow wala dress, how boring would these pages become? Why will I come to this page if all these people start dressing like me which is basically kurta palazzo every work day and tracks on weekends???
