In Nikhil Thampi


At the launch of her new jewellery line, Shaheen was seen wearing a Nikhil Thampi oxblood blazer gown with jewellery from her line, but of course. Considering it was a jewellery launch, I am guessing the sleek do was to show off the jewellery but am on the fence about it working with the gown itself. Especially with the gown having that one-sided off-shoulder detail.

Just me feeling that way?

In Payal Singhal


While at a recent event in Mumbai, both Shaheen and Shibani lent their support to the designer by sporting Payal Singhal separates.

At the recently concluded fashion week, Shaheen was photographed in a SVA Couture sharara, one that she paired with a graphic tee from H&M. With her hair pulled back in to a ponytail, she rounded out the look with gold-toned jewelry and a Saint Laurent bag.

She made the look work.

Star Speak, By Shaheen Abbas: A Note To Every Woman Who Has Felt She Is Not Skinny Or Beautiful Enough


Star Speak is an ongoing series of columns, penned by celebrities we are used to seeing on these pages. This is their space to write about their take on fashion, the fraternity and whatever else catches their fancy.

This week’s column comes from jewelry designer, Shaheen Abbas who shares four life lessons that will serve every woman well. You can follow Shaheen on Instagram here and on Twitter here.

For every woman who has felt she is not skinny or beautiful enough: life lessons from someone who has been there, done that, and emerged (a little bit) wiser.

I used to be one of those women, who would feel guilty for having zero control over food and berate myself for all the junk food that I ate, get pissed at the mirror over the slightest hint of a frown line, and obsess over those few extra kilos and grams on the weighing scale. How flawless I looked in that bodycon dress was the only (and truest) measure of my beauty, right? So damn wrong!

Why are we women so hard on ourselves? The abs are never washboard enough, the arms never lithe enough, the skin never glowing enough… it’s like we take some sort of perverse pleasure in brooding over our flaws. We are addicted to bashing ourselves over our appearance. We’ll say YES to crash diets, unsupervised workouts, and complain about how “fat” we are, but it’s always a NO to the beautiful person that stares back at us in the mirror.

Something stirred inside me during the last year of being in my 30’s (I turned 40 this March, in case you were wondering!), and yanked me to a state of self-awareness. I decided to say a giant “F**k you!” to all these unhealthy insecurities that weigh us women down. I mean, after 14,600 days of dealing with these doubts and worries, it was about damn time that I felt like I had enough! If I wanted to celebrate myself (and not just the number of candles on my cake), there was no better time than now. So here I am.

Wearing Payal Singhal suits, both Shaheen and Shweta sat from row at the designer’s show. Gold-tone jewelry and silver-toned heels finished out both their looks. Can’t say we were big fans of either outfit but there’s no denying, Ms. Tripathi was the one to fare better. Shaheen’s outfit does great disservice to her.

P.S: Shweta’s jewelry is by Suhani Pittie and Shaheen’s clutch is from Bottega Veneta.
