Of Film Festivals


Aishwarya was one of the many celebrities attending the Indian film Festival of Melbourne this past weekend. Ms. Rai first met up with an MP wearing a black Sabyasachi anarkali and then later changed to a velvet navy one (by Rohit Bal? ) for the Awards Ceremony.

A flag-hoisting ceremony the next day saw her in a custom Manish Malhotra anarkali. Of all the three, while this outfit was the most glittery, it was the one we liked best. Wearing the hair up had a lot to do with it.

We don’t have better pics yet but from what you see, which one was your favorite?

India Couture Week — The Roundup


FDCI’s India Couture Week 2017 recently wrapped up in New Delhi and that means we got a good look at the upcoming bridal trends! ;)
Celebrating its 10th edition this year, the event was everything that you would expect. Larger than life sets; sequins and shimmer; swanky venue; weighty FROW; Bollywood show stoppers; Rohit Bal’s signature floor grazers, each more voluminous than the previous and a glittery Manish Malhotra finale starring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh.
Seven days, 14 designers and at least 500 looks. Read on to find out why Manav Gangwani and Rina Dhaka stole the show. Just kidding! Here are some highlights of the week that was.   

I was not kidding about the bridal trends and if there is one trend that is clearer now than ever, it’s that the lehnga-choli can be well on its way to an extinct combination. Worn with lehngas and saris, these new age capes, cold-shoulder blouses and trapeze tops are so forgiving. Breathe (or eat) easy, would-be brides!

Anamika Khanna opened this year’s event with an installation titled Happily Ever After at The Kila in Seven Style Mile. Segmented into Welcome Lunch, Mehndi, Cocktails and Wedding, the collection amalgamated traditional Indian techniques with a modern Indian vibe, with twist and turns that Anamika is known to pull off. Pretty pastels to fiery reds, intricate embroidery and heirloom Benarasi textile interplayed with her spectacular silhouettes… I can go on and on. In short, everything made it to my lust list.

It’s not couture week, if you don’t spend time obsessing over saris. It wasn’t tough to narrow down my list. I love the maximalist-minimalist vibe of Rahul Mishra’s Parsi gara embroidered, organza scallop sari and I know Monisha Jaising’s sari-inspired gown will be seen on these pages soon. Gaurav Gupta’s pre-draped sexy Grecian sari was showcased in a lovely new mauve and Sabyasachi turned to his quintessential red matka. (Though he skipped India Couture Week for an Instagram reveal, you can’t ignore Sabya when talking about the sari.)

Okay, can we take another moment and talk about Shweta Bachchan in that white shirt? Paired with a Manish Malhotra skirt and accessorized with a gripoix buckled Chanel belt, she worked that look. I know some of you liked it and some didn’t, personally I thought that white shirt made for quite a fashion moment and I will be taking mine out soon!

In Sabyasachi


Aditi was seen at the Vogue Wedding Show in New Delhi wearing a floral hand-painted Sabyasachi sari. Keeping it simple, she finished out her look with kundan drop earrings and a middle-parted ponytail.

She looked lovely!

In Sabyasachi


Wearing a Sabyasachi sari with jewellery from Vasundhara, Lakshmi attended a wedding reception in Hyderabad on Thursday evening. While she looked sweet, wish the hairdo was a bit neater and she’d skipped the necklace.

In Twos


Wearing a Reve By Khushali Kumar gown, Tulsi Kumar attended the IIFA Rocks event last evening. For the main awards event underway tonight, the songstress picked Sabyasachi to wear.

Midriff bearing, volume-heavy both looks might have been, but that’s where all similarity ended. Of the two, no prizes for guessing, the appearance in Sabyasachi had our vote. The bodice on Reve…Tacktastic!
