Front Row Fashion


Wearing Manish Malhotra, Huma and Urmila attended the designer’s Couture show in Delhi today with both wearing floor-length anarkalis.

We already weren’t fans of the stark white embroidery against the maroon but what made things worse for Huma were the finishing touches. The open hair, the lip color and worst of all, the black pumps.

Sure, Urmila fared a bit better in her ornate gown but the sleeves looked a bit odd. Or maybe it is these pics.

India Couture Week 2014: Manish Arora


As much as it is part of the designer’s aesthetic, look past the ott styling for a minute. Then put aside your notion of kitsch. Now look at the clothes, just the clothes. Nuanced and wonderful, we were captivated by Manish Arora’s presentation at Couture Week. Yes, it lacks the quiet, earthy sensuality of a Sabyasachi woman or the feminine, flirty romanticism of the Manish Malhotra woman but what it does pack by the bagfuls is strength. And a whole lot of personality. Can’t wait to see some of those dresses off the runway. Stat!

In Hema Kaul


Amrita picked a similar dress from the same designer (Hema Kaul) that Neha Dhupia sported at the very event. Quite the coincidence! Pin-up inspired hair, oxblood lip and silver pumps finished out Ms. Rao’s look at the Awards.

While Neha had success with hers, I can’t say the same for Amrita. The color didn’t quite photograph well and the length seems a bit much on the petite actor. A couple of inches would’ve made a welcome difference! Props for trying something different but the look isn’t quite a ten.

In Hema Kaul


Wearing a full-skirted lace and tulle dress from Hema Kaul, Neha attended an Awards event last evening. Wearing her hair up, she finished out the look with soft make-up, jewelry from Anmol, a white minaudière and nude pumps. She looked great!

In Nandita Mahtani


Tara attended the awards ceremony wearing a white Nandita Mahtani jersey gown with a diamond and ruby necklace and earrings, both from Gemfields.

While the white gown provided a great backdrop to showcase the jewellery, the sash detail felt rather overwhelming on Tara’s petite frame.

Waist up, she looked great.
