The Ballooning Trend


Summer of last year saw Cameron Diaz totting the fabulous and oh-so-happy Marni balloon bag in yellow, and its popularity seems to be riding just as high even now! And most designers seem to have caught onto the shape… look at the Balenciaga and Gucci bags from their spring 08 collections…

While I like it, its a great casual, day-bag, the only thing I find inconvenient about this shape is that anything you put in the bag seems to collect at the bottom and it takes major rummaging to find something! But then again, maybe its just me!

Maxim Mavens


There was Malaika on the pages of Maxim. And now, there’s Kim Sharma. Who worked it more, is a question easy to answer!

Malaika, much hotness. Tasteful.
Kim, dancehall eighties. Yawn.

Size Matters?? A Faceoff


Thats a picture of Katie Holmes and Shweta Bachchan, both carrying the extremely coveted Hermes Birkin bag in red…

A Birkin, is a Birkin, whats not to love?

But, and there is always a but, I just think that Katie’s Birkin is a bit too big! I mean really, it does take the ‘over-sized bag’ thing a bit too far! It is obscene! Shweta’s on the other hand, is “just right”!! I know, I feel like Goldilocks too when I say that, but really!

Whats your take?

Vision (Hardly) In White : A Faceoff


Both Rituparna and Neetu Chandra went with white leggings and diaphanous white tops with asymmetrical lengths as far as their choice of outfits go, and, I really can’t say who was styled better because both were, umm, well lets just say, it didn’t work!

But, if you just had to choose who’d you pick?

Did we just stumble upon a trend though? Look what Priyanka Chopra wore to a recent event…

Bloom’ing Love


If you thought that influences of the ‘garden-variety’ were limited to the clothes in the Spring 2008 collections, you are wrong! The inevitable happened and the influence tipped over onto accessories as well.

Thankfully, not much of that happened because no matter what they say, I just don’t think lugging around a floral bag that costs $$$$ is fashionable! But some of these shoes were cute (ooh, Blahnik!!)…as were some of the pieces of jewellery that I saw, again, emphasis on ‘some’!!
