While Manish Arora had 1500 glow in the dark butterflies sown into a gown, a model for Mina Perhonen opened show by cutting out fabric from her dress to reveal the the white butterfly company emblem. Alexander McQueen accessorized his outfit with a hat made of butterflies and Andrew GN had simple butterfly prints on his clothes.

There's a new book out, 101 Things To Buy Before You Die, by Charlotte Williamson and Maggie Davis! Of that, The Daily Mail has picked fifty items that no self-respecting millionaire should be without!
An interesting item that made that list, were handbags by Amishi which apparantly are very popular with the Bollywood types and are made with semi-precious stones and such! Take a look at some of them and see what you think...
And to read the rest of the list (Fifty items that no self-respecting millionaire should be without), go HERE
That would be Ms Xenia Ali who decided to wear animal print from head to toe! If you are wondering who she is as we were..don't bother researching... it ain't worth your time! We just wanted to profile her as an example of how you can go way wrong with animal prints.
The same shoes and belt on a black sheath dress would have been classic but Ms Ali's choice of clothes just totally killed the look.
The dress we hear was designed by an in-house designer of the White Feather Films production house but if the same guy helped Neha with the other outfit..the third strike is coming up pretty soon for Ms. Dhupia!
The book launch in question was the photo-essay book about Sunil and Nargis Dutt written by their daughters Priya and Namrata. As usual, not only were the who's who of Mumbai present but also making an appearance were their bags!
We (Well Heeled and I) couldn't stop "oooh-ing" the uber-expensive Bottega Veneta Lizard clutch carried by Gauri Khan. (Life is really good when you are SRK's wife!)
Below are pictures of Divya Khosla and Vidya Balan at the Bhool Bhulaiyaa press meet (left and right, respectively) and its hard to judge who was worse off! While Khosla's was downright blinding, gaudy and loud, not that I expected much else, but, Balan's look was just ugly and dated and its unforgivable that she works on looking that way when she has such an old-world, classic, conventional charm that she could use to her advantage!
I hate the cinched, pleating on her dress, its so unflattering but barring that, I love the silver grey of her dress which you know is a big trend for this Fall! And what is unexpected is her orange stole! Not a combination that immediately comes to mind but it totally works!
Whatever happened to an otherwise stunning Koel Puri at the press conference of 'Breaking News'? She wore a trashy crochet number, fugly pink plastic'y shoes with flowers on them and black nailpaint on her toes! And then there were black bangles on one hand, copper on another, a silver ring on one hand and a red one on the other!! Jeeez!
Chloé has a new bag out, the Chloé Kerala leather shoulder bag and it looks pretty good! It has a nice yellow'ish leather, the shoulder straps look comfortable and the gold hardware is pretty much the standard Chloé fare. While I like the bag, its shape etc, I could do without the equestrian themed charms! And the whole Kerala reference zoomed past me...
If you have been eyeing Angelina's green shawl and wondering how to get your hands on one, you have stumbled onto the right place!
Source This picture above is a classic example of how a great colored shawl can transform an outfit from casual to chic!
A shawl is much bigger than a stole and can easily substitute for a light jacket. I, personally, prefer to wear shawls cuz you can remove them easily. Jackets make me feel stuffy not to mention the constant headache of putting them on and taking them off. A good pashmina is a great substitute for a light jacket during fall.
Stay warm and toasty ladies with these great options!
Spotted Malaika Arora Khan in Bebe, AGAIN! She was dressed in a Bebe crinkle silk halter dress at Mid-Day's 'Zing' launch.
How does she wear the same label, from the same collection to three events consecutively? This is getting ridiculous! Someone, please point her to a Mall. And blindfold her when passing by the Bebe store!
Suneet Varma celebrated 21 years in fashion with a celebratory ball and fashion show and I must say I was really disappointed. Dominated by cutwork embroidery and mettalic hues, the collection was such a letdown.
I had so hoped to be blown away, considering the collection he presented at India Splendor back in August was so vibrant and regal! I gotta say it.. I totally hated it!
