Esha Deol – Bharat Takhtani Wedding

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on June 30, 2012

After days of preparations, Esha Deol & Bharat Takhtani tied a knot in traditional South Indian style at the Hare Rama Hare Krishna mandir in Juhu, Mumbai. The wedding ceremony was a pleasant mix of South India & North India where the bride was dressed in Kanjeevaram saree style lehenga and the groom opted for a sherwani. The outfits for both bride & the groom were designed by Neeta Lulla………..she sure made Esha look beautiful on her D-Day. Designer Neeta Lulla combined Kanjeevaram sarees to create the look for Esha.

Father of the Bride – Dharamendra & mother Hema Malini welcomed the groom and the other baaratis at the entrance of the mandir. Abhay Deol & his partner Preeti Desai attended the ritual as part of the family. Preeti Desai wore a fabulous peach Anita Dongre saree and looked gorgeous in it. Hema Malini also wore a Kanjeevaram saree which was redesigned by designer Neeta Lulla.

Many A-List celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Neeta Ambani, veteran actors Manoj Kumar & Vyjayanthimala, Vinod Khanna, Shaina NC, Rani Mukherjee, Madhoo, Poonam Sinha, Fardeen Khan and many others. Just a glimpse of who attended the ceremony.

Esha Deol – Bharat Takhtani’s Sangeet Ceremony

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on June 27, 2012

A wedding in the B-Town is just what we fashionistas needed in this dull month of June where most of the celebrities are out shooting or enjoying a holiday. Esha Deol is all set to tie knot with her beau Bharat Takhtani. IFP gives you an exclusive look at the event and the celebrity red carpet style.

The couple were dressed in traditional Indian attire….Esha wore a beautiful orange lehenga designed by Rocky S while Bharat complimented her look in a blue & golden velvet kurta. IFP says they both make a cute pair together.

Mom Hema Malini caught our eye in this dazzling Neeta Lulla saree. The color, the detail work and the lady……IFP loves it all. The only thing we would like to ignore is the shining pink clutch which we find a bit out of place. But Hema Malini’s grace makes up for it.

Abhya Deol and Preeti Desai also attened the celebrations where Abhay looked dapper in a basic black suit, Preeti looked fabulous in ‘Anita Dongre’ lehenga. IFP gives a thumbs up to this couple for dressing perfectly for the occasion.

The newly wed Riteish & Genelia Deshmukh were also seen at the Sangeet. Genelia opted for a Neeta Lulla designed Lehenga. IFP likes the color combination of pairing a nude color with a bright maroon choli. Even Mr. Deshmukh looked good in the suit……….hoping to see more fashionable looks from this couple on the red carpet.

Actress and Page 3 celeb Madhoo also opted for a lehenga though IFP feels the corset choli is not gelling too well with the red lehenga. Wish Madhoo would have opted for a short sleeve choli instead of a corset fit one.

The sen sisters were seen at an event after a long time. Though fashion wise, we are liking Raima Sen’s anarkali style more………….Riya Sen did look cute in her Anarkali ensemble. Wish she would try out new hairstyle than stick to the same ol’ hair since the past decade….IFP thinks she desperately needs a fresh look.

Ranveer Singh who was seen partying after ages since his injury. The best part was he did not disappoint us fashionwise……….Ranveer wore a ‘Manish Malhotra’ designed Bandhgala in black and had grown a beard to complement his look. IFP likes to see him in this Indian look…………..

HDIL India Couture Week 2010 – Day 5

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on October 11, 2010

Arjun Khanna

Guess which Bollywood cutie made his way on the ramp at HDIL India Couture Week 2010???? I was happy to see Abhay Deol all dressed up as a cowboy rearing to go………..the only hitch here hat there was no horse available for him at couture week……..hee hee. Nonetheless, Abhay walked the ramp as show stopper for designer Arjun Khanna’s menswear collection which Arjun showcased at HDIL India Couture Week. While Abhya looked cute, can’t say the same for the rest of Arjun’s collection. I found some pieces a bit too dramatic…………imagine a guy wearing a purple velvet blazer and entering a party. I would never go near that fellow unless he was Hrithik Roshan……….call me old-fashioned but the velvet blazers were too much in name of fashion. Though the blazers in brown, grey blazer with velvet vest work for me and the bandhgalas were also commendable………..on the whole this collection was a mixed bag for me. Neither too great nor too bad is what I can say………










Shahab Durazi

Shahab Durazi’s collection was seen after many years and I am glad that he has not lost his elegant touch. Despite being away for the glare, I feel he is one of the few designers who knows his work well. Arjun Rampal looked more like a model the way he did way back many years, in this Shahab Durazi outfit which he wore as a show stopper. The collection was primarily for women, included skirts, blazers, gowns, flared pants and many more. The colours used in the designs were muted and very much suitable for the upcoming winter season. There were also beautiful red gowns seen in this collection which were perfect for any red carpet event. My verdict : Loved the clothes which had a very international feel to it, yet were very fashionable & wearable.











Rina Dhaka

Rina Dhaka showcased her latest collection on Day 4 with Anushka Sharma walking as show stopper for her. Day 4 has been dedicated to ‘Being Human’ charity cause hence I am featuring Rina Dhaka’s collection for day 5. The collection consisted of sarees, kurtis, pants, cocktail dresses, skirts………..the title of the collection was ‘Entanglement’ but I could see that in designs as well…………….few sarees were beautiful but the rest of the clothes were a bit dated. My verdict : Not a big fan on this collection.

GQ India Mens Award 2010 – Red Carpet Review

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on September 28, 2010

GQ Mens Award event was full of glamour quotient which is what makes this blog tick………….I love to see our very own Indian celebrities on the Red Carpet, where they all are dressed up to rock the fashion world. This time around Indian GQ Mens Award had Hollywood presence as well with the legendary John Travolta who is visiting India currently, posed for the shutterbugs. Let’s kick off with who wore what at this event……….

Abhishek & Aishwarya Bachchan

Abhishek and wifey Aishwarya have been voted as the most powerful celebrity couple in Asia by E! News Asia, I am a believer since no red carpet event is complete without the cosy twosome. Abhishek Bachchan wore a three piece black suit with a red tie to add that pop of colour………………… complaints about him since he is looking absolutely dressed for occassion and very much like a gentleman. Whereas I felt Aishwarya’s gown to be a bit dull……..the grey colour though was gorgeous but the bodice part is where things went wrong. The neckline cut in steps and the glitter part did not do much on the glamour part of this gown plus with the hair swept to one side………….I am not a fan. My advice to Aishwarya is that she is one of very few women in India to carry off glamorous outfit with an ease so please don’t be too simple.

Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan who was dressed in a Tuxedo also rocked the red carpet scene and was on a high with the Peepli Live selected for the Oscars from Indian Cinema………………this time around I wish his moviewould get the international accolade since I honestly believe he is one of the few Indian who uses his celebrity status for the betterment of our country. Coming back to his red carpet style, I like the fact that he went all formal for the occassion but feel the seams of his pants were too tight when worn with those shoes. Maybe it is just me????? But on the whole I am all for this avatar of Aaamir with hair neatly styled, the one button tux are smart……………Mr. Perfectionist gets a thumbs up for me. Hope the young guns of Hollywood follow him when it comes to dressing up for the occassion.

Priyanka Chopra

The vivacious Priyanka Chopra was all glam in the beige strapless gown…………….though the shiny satin in that colour is something I would personally avoid but Priyanka is able to carry off with ease. Though many fashionistas hated this look, I say it is glamorous, sexy and the colour is doing good on Priyanka’s complexion. So I am for it since I feel this woman oozes loads of sex appeal and has a great body so why not flaunt it. Go Pri………….Love this look. Priyanka won the ‘Woman of the Year’ award too………..

Abhay Deol and Preeti Desai

Abhay Deol seems to be inspired by Boy george’s early 1980s look…………………I like his individualistic sense of style but the shiny shoes with the loose tie and the fitted pants that don’t match his blazer………… wise it is not how I would have dressed up for a GQ magazine Mens Award……………..this style would have worked for MTV music awards but not here. Sorry Abhay, you are an amazing actor but this get up is just not for me. Funnily Preeti Desai looked all dressed for the occasion in the Little Black dress, ruby red lips and those killer heels. For sure this lady has a sense of style and knows it is always better to emphasize on one thing only when you are on the red carpet.

 Ranbir Kapoor

 The Youngistaan heartrob Ranbir Kapoor was all dressed up in a Tuxedo which could have been fitted better since the suit seems loose at the waistline, the sleeves were too long and the bow tie was a bit limp. But what I wish Ranbir had shaved off and looked neat since one needs to put a handsome face on in those tux. So please tidy up next time around when you are all dressed up and show off your good looks to the world.

Dino Morea & Nandita Mahtani

Dino Morea might not be a big star in Bollywood but when it comes to style, he sure knows what looks good on him. I like his no tie, no bow look since he has kept it simple in a black suit and a white shirt with black piping on the button section. The outfit is neat and right for the event…………………whereas Nandita whose dress I simply love, made the wrong shoe choice. The animal print would have looked better on black, browns or beige but not on this blue. The one shoulder dress with detail work on the shoulder is beautiful but the shoes destroyed the look. I would have preferred a matt gold strappy shoes that match her clutch as well.

Arjun Rampal & Mehr Jessia

Mehr And Arjun both dressed in black was too much for me this time………………Of course Arjun looked pretty decent except for his tie which I felt was not required and the collar was unable to hide the tie.  Rest nocomplaints about his suit but I expect Mehr to wear more colour on the red carpet. She has am amazing body, alluring heigth, beautiful features…………… what is stopping her from wearing colour and look drop dead gorgeous on the red carpet. All black outfit with a ‘Chanel’ waist chain is doing no wonders here…………….

Chunky & Bhavna Pandey

Chunky Pandey who surprisingly looks quite dapper in this suit and a tie that matches his background well…………I like his look for the fact that he has kept his entire suit simple in one colour but added a pop of colour through his tie. While wife Bhavna looks quite mis-matched with the animal print clashing with the florals. I wish her outfit would have been of one print only……………either all floral or all animal print. Mixing both is not giving the desired ‘fabulous’ look……….thought the shoes and matching ‘Bottega’ clutch give an understated look and work well here.

Simone Singh

As lovely as Simone truly is, this jumpsuit is not for her………………..the greenish blue satin jumpsuit with hideous pockets on the side, the shimmer jacket accompanied are a recipe for disastor. The only thing I like about this attire is her ‘Tiffany’ key pendant which looks elegant even against that colour. I wish Simone would have skipped her jacket altogether, wrn the jumpsuit alone and accessoried with a stylish cuff and a pair of earrings complimenting her pendant. Plus my advice to all would be to avoid pairing golden and silver hues in a single outfit…………….make only one metallic tone work while you dress up.

Queenie Dhody

Socialite & Jewellery designer Queenie Dhody walked in with beau Farhad Taraporewala dressed in tiger print sequin studded gown………………… eyes went wide open looking at the mess. Honestly if a woman is over the age of 40, it is sbetter to use animal prints in subtle measures like on the rim of a dress or jacket, on handbags, in form of scarf, shoes…………..the key is to keep it minimal. This is too loud for Queenie……….the big black clutch, the old Hollywood style hair, the sequins…………..all of it is too much. I would love to see her in pastels with a hint of shimmer.

Sheetal Malhar


Did someone just go for a walk on the beach, lost her way and ended up on the red carpet of GQ India Mens Award???? I think that has to be Sheetal Malhar…………..unfortunately the dress, the pearl necklace and the shoes are pretty…………but not appropriate for the event. The leather bag is also to some extent a spoiler in this attire…….would have loved to see sheetal in a Grecian inspired gown instead of a short summer dress.

Parmeshwar Godrej

Yyyyyyeeeeeeeekkkkkksssss…………….that is my reaction seeing Parmeshwar Godrej in this ensemble……….all I can say is ‘What was she thinking???’ The black shiny leggings, the net bodice, the low cleavage, the boring stole, the shiny pumps, all might be big labels but they ain’t looking good here. My request to Ms. Godrej is to tone down a bit and stick to graceful vintage outfits which are plenty in market. A woman like her will look amazing in a ‘Chanel’ rather than this hideous dress.

Rahul Khanna

Rahul Khanna definitely looks suave in this attire………………..hands down he is looking polished, sophisticated and handsome. Need I say any more for Rahul who is dressed in a two button Tuxedo which has an excellent fit…… far this is my favourite look for GQ Mens Award. Rahul also hosted the event for the evening.

Anusha Dandekar

Anusha Dandekar wore a very colourful sequin dress made by Shane & Falguni Peacock has hotch-potch designs like the peek-a-boo cleavage, the black hemline, shimmer all over reminds of the song ‘Shiny Disco Ball’. But Anusha still managed to look amazing in the dress……………..maybe body language can make a world of difference. The belt and the shoes get her out of the brink of being badly dressed and the side swept ponytail puts the focus on her face rather than the glittery dress. Still not a fan of the dress, but adore Anusha in it.

Rahul Bose

Good things come in small packages………….well that is what I can say after looking at Rahul Bose who looked perfect in a grey suit adorned with black buttons, silver tieand balck shoes. The fit is proper, the hair is sleek, the tie stands out well……….the actor has never looked better. I am loving his style……………..No one could have done grey better than Mr. Bose.
