In Twos


Two different events saw Ms. Gupta in two different draped looks. For the promotions of Fan, the actor wore a Payal Khandwala skirt as a dress with woven boots. The screening of Nil Battey Sannata was more of a casual affair and there she was seen in a Rimi Nayak draped dress and white Forever 21 brogues.

Think she did good in both? I sure thought so.

In Rimi Nayak


Amrita attended a function at a school wearing a Rimi Nayak blazer. The blazer featuring Bengali typography was paired with a white top, blue denims and a necklace. She looked great.

Wish List Wednesday!


Slacked off on these Wish Lists, didn’t we? So without much further delay, (drumroll please) here’s one!

Ms. Saran was an easy pick for the series. Beautiful woman, unfortunate sartorial choices. She tends to favor a certain kind of sari, a certain kind of dress… And if not stuck in that rut, the hair and make-up seem to let her down. Below is our wishful indulgence… How we’d love to see her in any/all of ’em! Some are bit of a stretch but, think twice why don’t you?!

Shriya Saran

It’d be great to see Ms. Saran pick Indian-wear that wasn’t the tried and tested, her go-to sheer and/or blingy options. Styled differently to work off the runway, each of these looks would look great on her. A soft braided updo and a statement necklace with the sari-inspired Tarun dress or the Kotwara one with the dupatta worn more casually and plaited hair would make for such a great change!

We’d love to see more pared down, minimalist tinged looks on Shriya. There is no reason to fall back on bling for every Red Carpet appearance, is there now? Look at that JJ Vallaya gown, impactful without assaulting the senses. How we’d love to see that off the runway!

L To R: Shantanu And Nikhil, Swapnil Shinde, JJ Vallaya And Deepika Govind

It can’t always be floor-sweeping gowns, can it? These looks below are worthy of their moment and, we know with just the right hair, make-up and accessories, there’s no reason why Shriya can’t have a moment in them. That Namrata Joshipura look is practically made for Shriya. And look, it’s not tacktastic. (P.S: The Joshipura skirt could be yours!)

L To R: Pankaj And Nidhi, Rohit Gandhi And Rahul Khanna, Namrata Joshipura And Adarsh Gill

We know Ms. Saran loves her maxis, wish she’d try some quirky printed ones too. Like the Rimi Nayak one. You are young. And you only live once! ;) It’d be great to see her in an easy-breezy dress like the Anita Dongre one too.

L To R: Soup By Sougat Paul, Rimi Nayak, Anita Dongre And Rajesh Pratap Singh

And now, this is the part where we cross our fingers!

Rimi Nayak, Debarun Mukherjee: LFW Summer/Resort 2010


Drawing inspiration from the ‘Sailor’ isn’t something new… sadly neither was Rimi Nayak’s execution of it.

Her collection ‘Azure Amour’ that drew upon the theme of the ‘sailor’ and ‘his sweetheart’ saw of lot of blues and whites naturally, with looks that ranged from heavily nautical to Grecian silhouettes. Some of the pieces were interesting but it mostly left us wishing for a fresher take on a ‘done-that’ theme.

Debarun Mukherjee, Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2010

With an inspiration like ‘chanachur or Bombay Mix’, a mixture (snack) popular in Kolkatta, our interest in the collection was piqued. But what came out of Debarun Mukherjee’s collection called “Miracle Mix” was one big disappointment. The color palette was mostly a mix of rusts, browns, mustards and burnt oranges and the silhouettes seemed rather uninspired. The embellishments and embroidery just seemed so dated. Perhaps the only thing interesting about this showing was the goody bag with the mixture packet. Yum.
