Balmainia


We’ve yet to see the tinseltown ladies pick up Balmain but until they do, we’ll keep ourselves happy spotting some on the non-filmi ones. Closer to home, Ms. Poonawala wore the same Balmain jacket seen on Gisele on the Vogue cover and in London, Priyanka Gill hosted a Diwali party wearing a Balmain dress with a heavy kundan choker. Am all about mixing it up but the heavy-duty traditional necklace didn’t quite work with the edgy dress.

P.S. Still have my fingers crossed and hoping to spot one (some day) on the ‘filmy’ crowd (and not in a magazine spread). Will it ever happen? :P

Seeing Double?


These two Jaya Mishra designs shown at the recently concluded Kolkata Fashion Week seemed to have borrowed heavily from past Chanel/Balmain/Alexander Wang collections.

Do you see what we see?

In Marios Schwab


Update: Ms. Kapoor was also wearing Balmain‘s studded sandals with the dress. Thanks ‘fashionista’ for the image tip-off.

On anyone else the dress would’ve looked like any other printed dress but on Sonam Kapoor the Marios Schwab 3D Crystal Print dress really shines. Love how she paired her dress with a pair of hoops and a Balenciaga bag.

Keeps it interesting, this one.

Gisele on Vogue India: (Un)Covered


We saw her in the Suneet Verma sari already and here is Gisele on the cover of Vogue India’s September edition in a Balmain jacket and a Tarun Tahiliani bikini. Hot! or not?

Heck, its Gisele. Hot all the way, for us!

The Worst Knock Off Award…


… goes to Genelia who wears a dress that seems to have drawn a lot of inspiration from Balmain’s Fall 2009 collection. It ain’t a style that anyone can pull off but if you are going to try, at least keep it edgy! It’s not like the dress was great (it was ugly actually) but the rhinestone sandals and the necklace (which is way too traditional) make Genelia’s look even worse.

This is a WTHeyyy for us, folks. What about for you?

Update: The dress is a Neeta Lulla. Thanks ‘ashima’.
