The Two Sided Story

She (Jacqueline Fernandez) first went totally OTT with that crazy, funky and loud orange dress at the 'Hello' magazine party. And then she surprised us by going elegant and understated, but with the just the right amount of playfulness for a Hotel launch.

Surprised and liking it, we are keeping our eyes out for this one, we are.

(Maxi)mum Print

Spotted Rosa and Perizaad Zorabian at two different recent events wearing Maxi dresses, a huge trend... I wish Perizaad went with a different color/print, didn't think it flattered her too much, but can't say have any complaints with Rosa's outfit!


Perizaad Zorabian

This is a Spring/Summer trend that am absolutely loving, its so flattering for all body types and can so easily be dressed up or down... And with the amount of vibrant colors and prints out there to choose from, just makes it perfect!

A trend thats totally caught on among the celebs... Will you be wearing Maxi this season?

Can You Spot The Original?

Two of the shoes below are designer creation worth more than $700 and two of the shoes below are knockoffs for under $100!

The question is that can you spot the original pieces?

P.S. Some of you already know what the brands are and the knockoffs.. but to make this more inneresting, I hope that you refrain from mentioning it in the comments! Thanks!

Way More Of The Same!

A White Out vs A Black Out!

Sameera and Kangana decided to go monochromatic recently, except neither could make it work!

Sameera as usual had to screw up with bad footwear. Kangana's satin bustier could've worked if she just hadn't paired it with cotton pants that although were black, they were a totally different shade! A contrast like that neither looks good in person nor in pics.


Is There Such A Thing...

... as wearing a Sari bad? There must be because Miss Afghanistan, Vida Samaszai sure makes it seem that way! Now, we totally do appreciate her for wearing a Sari, don't see too many of those anymore, but its just the way she wears them... too much of sexuality and not enough of grace.

I think our favorite non-Indian to wear a Sari continues to be Liz Hurley, only cause she does it with so much ease, grace and poise!

Tied And Dyed

None of us are strangers to 'tie-dye', but I shudder to think it can be worn the way Fergie did! For me it was way overdone and tacky but I do know of some people who think it was hippie-chic and that she pulled it off... I of course beg to differ, what do you all think?

I love the way Berardi did 'tie-dye' for Spring 08 ready to wear... now thats the way to do it! Love.

Feed 2

We told you about Feed bags a while ago, and now there's Feed 2!

'FEED 2' bags not only raise awareness about child hunger, but also raise funds for the UN World Food Programme’s school feeding program. Each FEED 2 bag sold, provides a year's worth of lunch meals in school for two children in need. (Feed 2 bag has a number 2 on it to represent the two children it will feed) And, the bag is made from 100% organic fair-trade material and is fully reversible.

What a great cause!

Buy Feed 2 Via Harrods


Animal Print - Two Ways

Raveena wore a boring top and a even ghastlier bag at a recent event while Jacqueline Fernandez went totally chic and teemed her dress with animal print pumps... The animal print that did nothing for Raveena's cause, totally elevated Jacqueline's outfit to a whole other chic level....

Dressing Beyond Her Age..

.. is Nandita, who sure gets brownie points for going traditional at the Tribeca Film Festival, but loses a lot more for latching on that granny shawl over a sari! Just makes her look so much older.

"Before The Rains" Premiere

"Ramchand Pakistani" Premiere

You just have to take one look at Konkona to know that it can be done! And be done great!


Too Much Of A Good Thing?

Yup, we know Hrithik's got a smokin' bod and a lil' eye-candy never hurt anyone, but when getting styled identically for two different covers, someone should've spoken up! Either the stylists didn't realize or turned a blind eye for the greater interest ;)

But what's Mr. Roshan's excuse, he was there at both places wasn't he?!?

Oh, why complain!!!

From Drab To Fab

Maheka Mirpuri sure brought it up a notch at the ELLE magazine breast cancer awareness drive! Well, compared to the pink monstrosity that she wore to the unveiling of her summer 08 collection ‘Expressions’, anything would have been an improvement. But, got to give credit where credit is due and though I am tired of the overdone Burberry plaid...her handbag actually works with her look!

Speaking of Burberry bags, I wonder how long it'll be before we spot the strong editorial favorite and this season's IT Bag, Burberry Warrior bag on celebrities here...

Twice As Nice!

Can I say that I am hating the bag she is carrying to the White House dinner! Someone ever heard of a thing called a clutch!?
