In Stella McCartney


Delhi socialite Neeva Jain wears a Fall 2009 Stella McCartney dress with pointed boots, mimicking the runway look except that instead of wearing the thigh-high boots she goes for regular below-knee ones. Considering the dress falls above the knee, would have much preferred it if she had worn the dress with tights and pumps and skipped the shawl. It distracts from the bow-tie detail of the dress.

    • exactly my thoughts.. and while we in Delhi love to drape a shawl around but I cant understand whats this one doing for her… neither keeping her warm (it comes off in the second pic) nor being used as an accessory…


  1. Horrible..
    Clearly a case of show-off .. with those boots(I believe some high-end designer) , the dress and the Birkin….
    And what’s with the shawl .. she could have carried a mono-chromatic one atleast .. but no she had to show off her Jamawar too!!


    • I’ll give you she’s badly dressed in this picture, but lets not conclude that the poor woman is a show-off :-)

      Most of the women featured on this site wear high-end designers, either Indian or International. When somebody moves in circles of people who wear big brands, has the money to afford designer gear and has access to designer shops and sites, its not unusual that they end up buying clothes from premium labels. I mean, I know I would.

      That hardly makes you a show-off, you must remember that a lot of people at the event she was at were also probably wearing big brands (Christian Dior’s Kalyani Chawla, Charu Sachdev who wons the franchise for Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney in India, Sanjeev Kapoor of Genesis luxury). Also the boots are clearly because she is trying to copy the runway look. And the dress is not monogram-covered or expensive-looking in a obvious way at all

      And most Delhi women will wear a shawl with ANYTHING, and there is this mentality amongst some women that a Jamawar is exquisite (which is true) and therefore it goes with anything (which, like in this case, is NOT true)

      And given the number of Birkins I’ve spotted on this site and other mumbai/ delhi party pictures, I highly doubt that it is considered exceptional amongst the company she keeps.

      I agree that all together it looks a bit excessive but I do not think she was trying to show-off, just trying to look her best.

      P.S: Maybe she IS a show off and I could be totally wrong, I just do not think that it is okay to look at a few pictures out of context and conclude that she is show off. I dont mean this to be personal or offensive to you, so I hope you do not take it that way :-)


      • Oh wow, how I agree with you.
        I know Neeva Jain vaguely.
        She’s just not the best dresser, thats all. She isn’t a show off either. The money she has today has come to her with a lot of work and effort and she knows better than being flashy about it. That way, she’s really humble.
        Just a case of bad taste.
        A stylist wouldnt be the worst thing.


  2. omg overload overload overload. just too much happening: the limp hair, huge sunglasses, unsightly pearl drop earrings, the shawl, the pointy boots and the print. not to be mean, but with her well endowed figure, it just looks Too Much.
