Super Dancer 2 taping on Monday saw Shilpa in a 431-88 By Shweta Kapur sari featuring a beaded and feather trim blouse and paired with emerald jewellery.

Sure she wears the look well but considering this is a TV show, did she really hold the pallu in the hand all through out? Or just put it on her lap once behind the judges table? One wonders!

A Separate(s) Story

Pairing her Ashish Soni jacket with trousers from 431-88, Mira attended a dinner hosted by Conde Nast last night. Red lip color and diamond jewelry from Nirav Modi rounded out her look.

Had the pants been all black, the look would’ve worked. But given the more formal top-half and the striped, flared bottoms, the look seemed rather disjointed. The pants did absolutely nothing for Ms. Kapoor!

Wearing a shimmery 431-88 top with black side-strap Zara pants, Neha taped another episode of Vogue BFF on Tuesday. The silver top with its fringe detail isn’t one I would be drawn to but by wearing it with those pants, the fringe doesn’t look as odd.

The only thing I find off here is the makeup. The concealer seemed heavy-handed. Like what you see?

Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017: Top 5 Looks

3

Having sifted through the usual winter party cocktail mix of faux fur, sequins, leather and big earrings, here are five new looks/trends that stood out from the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017.

Volume With A Side Of More Volume
Cocktail dresses are fine, but something has to be said to said about a woman in high waist graphic pants and a high shine metallic blouse. 431-88 sent out their ‘Studio 5’4 top tucked into a 70s style pant. The tuck in did the trick. And here I have spent so many days trying to ‘balance’ a voluminous bottom with a fitted top.

The Sculpted Sari
A contemporary style story set in a vintage backdrop, Amit Aggarwal is one of the most lusted labels on these pages. This season, we can’t stop staring at his saris. His signature moulding and cording, architectural/industrial vibe, high sheen and structure in his fortified weaves, now to wait and watch when those saris and bodices make an appearance on the red carpet.

Sheer Bomber + Dress
At a time when your fashion maverick-ness is gauged by the art of layering, and a statement dress just isn’t enough, I am totally stealing Falguni & Shane Peacock’s sheer bomber + dress idea. I may have to replace the sequin on the dress with something less sparkly like a stripe but am definitely prioritizing the hunt for a sheer bomber. This is just the perfect antidote to the times I refused to ‘cover’ the dress with a jacket, and a stole just didn’t make the cut. (TBH I did go through a phase when I thought draping a shawl over dress was genius styling. Feel free to judge me, I am too!)

The Big Mix
Every few months I resolve to be that fashion forward person who effortlessly mixes textures and clashes prints. Then, I just go back to wearing blue jeans with anything and everything. I envy the ease with which Gen Next designers Saaksha & Kinni mixed a sequin spangled skirt with stripes and floral.

Tug Of Tassel
Favored by everyone alike, from emerging labels like Monika Nidhii (in picture) and doyens like Manish Malhotra, what’s Winter/Festive without some tassel or fringe-induced drama? PS: Whether or not I get my hands on a fringed skirt or blouse, am definitely not taking off my tassel earrings this entire season!
