Green Carpet at IIFA 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on July 7, 2013

IIFA Awards 2013 started in Macau this past weekend. ‘Indian Fashion Police’ brings you the lowdown of the looks on the green carpet of this event.

IIFA-Deepika

Deepika Padukone looked uber hot in a¬†coral floral all-over metallic beaded chiffon wrap-front gown from Naeem Khan’s Spring 2013 collection. Have to say that she has found the perfect designer in Naeem……….with his stylish designs, Deepika can seldom go wrong. Love this look on her.

IIFA-Deepika2

Deepika was also spotted in a Naeem Khan outfit at the IIFA technical awards as well. The beaded top was paired with pants that had a skirt overlay and was a unique choice for the red carpet. What was right that Deepka took a risk which was paid off with the correct styling. Demure choice…….ladies please learn few lessons here. ūüėČ

IIFA-Madhuri

Madhuri Dixit opted for soft pink & blue ‘Manish Malhotra’ anarkali for the IIFA Technical Awards. The outfit spoke loads about style on the red carpet and did not need much styling….the light colours looked beautfiul on Madhuri. Like this look for sure.

IIFA-Madhuri2

Jade by Monica & Karishma designed Madhuri’s outfit for the main IIFA awards. Though I love the black & golden combination of this lehenga but the drapping part spoilt this look entirely. Wish would have drapped it in a more neater way rather than kust putting the pallu over in a jiffy. The hair & the jewels were glorious with this outfit.

IIFA-Anushka

Anushka Sharma was dressed in ‘Roberto Cavalli’ gown in white but the no accessories look felt too plain for a glamorous event. The hair too was lame as was the missing bling. A white pristine gown is a perfect canvas to experiment with matt gold jewellery or colour stone. Add some glam factor to this look Anushka……


IIFA-Sridevi

Sridevi opted for a sequin studded off shoulder gown for the big nite and boy did she look awesome on the green carpet. The side swept hair, stone embellished clutch, red lips and a pose to match said it all. This is how one should look on the red carpet…….Absolutely Glam!!!

IIFA-Neha

Neha Dhupia always stands out in a stylish manner at any event………….even at IIFA she was no exception as she walked the green carpet in ‘Anamika Khanna’ anarkali paired with black pants. The lace detailing of the outfit was elegant ¬†and Neha kept the jewellery to the minimal. The hair ¬†& the make-up blended well with this look………..Adore it on her.

IIFA-JAc

Jacqueline Fernandes also went all glam in this ‘Roberto Cavalli” outfit in shimmer gold. Love the vintage Hollywood-style hair that gave alot of focus on the d√©colletage area. For the event this look is definitely one of my favourite.

IIFA-Amrita

Amrita Rao in a shimmer gown as well failed to make any impression in this outfit. The hair was messy & not stylish, there was nothing new in her make-up and the look was devoid of any eye-catching accessory. Need Amrita to find her signature look. 

IIFA-Vidya

OK we have seen Vidya don Sabyasachi looks on the red carpet but watching similar looks over & over again is not that exciting at all. ¬†Even in Sabyasachi’s recent collection there is so much of beautiful colours & designs………..so why not opt for those Vidya instead of sticking to dull colours. As for IIFA, Vidya is wearing ‘Sabyasachi’ ¬†lehenga.

IIFA-Huma

¬†Huma Qureshi decided to go black in this outfit by designer ‘Nikhil Thampi’ ………..not at all excited about the accessories which Huma opted for with this dress. I do like Huma’s hair & make-up but the nude lips with the chunky cuff & nude peep toes did nothing much to call this look amazing. So much experimentation in terms of shoes & accessories could have been done on this silhouette….sigh!!

IIFA-Lisa

Lisa Haydon in ‘Namrata Joshipura’ gown………something in this outfit reminds me of the term ‘Gothic’ ¬†but Lisa manages to make this look good on the green carpet. The braided hair compliments the look perfectly………..like it.

IIFA-Divya

Divya Dutta made a pretty picture in red saree at the IIFA awards…….even though this might not be the best look seen till date, Divya does look beautiful in this saree and this one of the good looks seen on Divya in a long time.



IIFA-Minissha

Minissha Lamba in ‘Ayesha Depala’ gown which had feather touch, was paired with a metallic belt. The look was not that great and wish Minissha would have opted for another outfit altogether………..this one made her look more like a blanket than glamorous.

IIFA-Shahid

IIFA-Shahrukh

What is the most common mistake that Indian actors make when they are dressed on the red carpet………they forget or absolutely ignore to shave off the unnecessary stubble when they are wearing a Tuxedo. Please go all clean when one wants to wear a tuxedo on the red carpet……….cleaner the look the better dressed one looks.

Red Carpet at TOIFA 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on April 7, 2013

Times of India Film Awards or better known as TOIFA was held this weekend in Vancouver, Canada. IFP gets you a glimpse at the red carpet of TOIFA and how our stars fared on it.

Photo Courtesy : http://www.businessofcinema.com & Indiatimes.com

TOIFA-ASHABHI

Abhishek & Aishwarya pose on the red carpet at TOIFA complimenting each other’s style in Indian wear. Aishwarya was dressed in a green anarkali by ‘Sabyasachi’ while Abhishek was spotted in a bandhgala. As a couple they looked nice but I still¬†believe¬†this look would have been much more glamorous.

TOIFA-Nargis

Nargis Fakhri dressed in a glittery ‘Komal Sood’ gown posed in style. On someone else the gown would have been a total wash-out but Nargis looked ‘Hot’…………..especially the¬†fuchsia¬†pink lips.

Toifa-Pri2

Priyanka Chopra dazzled in a black & golden ‘Arpan Vohra’ outfit at TOIFA………..this one is definitely one of her best red carpet looks. The dress is sexy, her side swept hairstyle is fashionable and the make-up is beautiful. Wish Priyanka would continue these amazing red carpet appearances in future too.

TOIFA-Neha

Neha Dhupia knows how to work a ‘Sabyasachi’ outfit. IFP loves her military inspired look which was definitely a tough one to carry but Neha pulled this look off with sheer elegance. The pulled back hair, flawless make-up and minimal accessories…….. ūüôā ūüôā

TOIFA celbration

Ileana D’cruz shares a joke with Prabhudeva on the red carpet………here I actually felt that Prabhudeva looked way better than Ileana who is usually dressed perfect. Maybe this was her day off………………not liking the gown or styling of this look. ūüė¶

TOIFA celbration

Ranbir Kapoor has finally heard IFP’s plead to woo us on the red carpet…………….the man looked dapper in a three piece suit and trimmed stubble. This is definitely how we want a star to be seen on the red carpet. IFP has got at least this wish fulfilled………sigh!!

TOIFA-SG

Shahrukh & Gauri Khan wanted to paint the town red………..well at least their appearance did feel like that. Shahrukh finally opted for some colour by wearing a maroon dinner jacket while Gauri wore a ‘Tarun Tahiliani’ saree. I do like ¬†Gauri’s hairstyle which is a refreshing change & it works with this outfit.

TOIFA-Aditi

Aditi Rao Hydari in a ‘Gauri & Nainika’ gown could have been a match made in fashion heaven…………..unfortunately the reverse happened. I cannot pin point if it was the shiny fabric or the colour that did this look in……..wish the gown would have been in¬†fuchsia colour. Maybe it would have worked……………at least for now this look spelt¬†disaster.

TOIFA-Anushka

Anushka Sharma wore a suit again on the red carpet…………not that IFP has any complains since she looked so good with those hair bangs & red lips. Anushka was the ‘Host’ for the evening along with Ranbir Kapoor so I think they had a dress code to follow for this event……….but a fabulous girl like her deserves to be seen in couture gowns & Indian-wear………there is always a next time.

Renault Star Guild Awards 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on February 18, 2013

Star Guild Awards held in Mumbai and hosted for the very first time by Salman Khan [can’t wait to watch that] ……the red carpet had many Bollywood haseenas strutting in their designer wear. IFP takes a look at who wore what at this event.

Renault-Priyanka

Priyanka Chopra opted for Shehlaa Khan glittery outfit that she paired it with what seems like a ‘Pinky Saraf’ clutch and blue-golden sandals. The look which was again in pastel colour did not stand out plus the shoes made the look even worse. Just not feeling this styling which could have been way better.

Renault-Anushka

Anushka Sharma manages to do a 360 degree turn around on the red carpet when she walked in in a saree, pulled back hair and jhumkaas. The ‘MAnish Malhotra’ saree looked good on her but it was the earrings that IFP is absolutely in love with. Anushka rocked this look especially after seeing her in series of mini dresses & gown.

Renault-Ekta

Ekta Kapoor was promoting her upcoming movie ‘Ek thi Daayan’ by wearing this one shoulder ‘what-to-call’ ¬†outfit. Pair it with space jumping shoes and voila you have a modern day style diva from hell. As good as her movies are and as much as money she makes from them, she could afford the best in fashion to style her. Sigh……

Renault-Vidya

Vidya Balan again opted for ‘Sabyasachi’ but this time there was a twist in form of shimmer blouse. The blouse alone is somewhat too loud but Vidya seems to have played this look well by combining an understated saree & avoiding heavy jewellery. A good look but not one of her best for sure.

Renault-Eleana

Ileana D’cruz wore a floral ‘Dolce & Gabbana’ outfit which seemed too busy with the print & net combined. Plus the hair too was not ¬†working with this outfit. Wish Ileana could have opted for simple silhouette than this one.

Renault-Aditi

Aditi Rao Hydari in a peach ‘Payal Singhal’ saree looked as if she put the entire look in hurry. The big curls with the draping of her saree spoilt this entire look which could have been so elegant if styled differently. This look lacked grace in it……….not liking even a bit.

Renault-Hema

Hema Malini wore a ‘Neeta Lulla’ saree in pastel which was just too shiny for me. But Hemaji worked the look with her choice of clutch and diamond jewellery. On anyone else the look would have come across as garish but not on Hema Malini.

Renault-Neetu

As much as I love Neetu Chandra’s yellow saree, it is her halter blouse & make-up which makes me¬†twitch.¬†¬†The saree could have been paired with a contrasting brocade blouse with short sleeves rather than a stringy halter. The foundation appeared too light on her face than her neck…………wish Neetu would wake up from a bad dream.

Renault-Sonakshi

Sonakshi Sinha in a ‘Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla’ design which did look elegant on the red carpet but with the designer dupatta trailing the floor, Sonakshi should have worn it better. The look lacked colour since the accessories, the shoes and the outfits itself were done up in pastels. Wish Sonakshi would have added emerald or ruby earrings for that ‘pop of colour’.

Renault-Sophie

Sophie Choudry who is immaculately dressed on the red carpet, seems to have take a day off………Sophie wore ‘Alice+Olivia’ gown in black combined with a red lips. This outfit which had sheer skirt, screamed for bold accessories. A contemporary neck-piece might have worked better. Not a fan of this look which was evidently too simple & boring.

Renault-Sridevi

Sridevi in ‘Sabyasachi’ lehenga which was an unusal choice for the red carpet but definitely an excellent one. Sridevi combined this outfit with a potli bag, dangling earrings & a side swept braid. Love this look on her which was classy, sophisticated and beautiful.

Red Carpet at the Filmfare Awards 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on January 21, 2013

58th Filmfare Awards were held at Yashraj studios in Mumbai. Ranbir Kapoor & Vidya Balan walked away with the leading actor awards, yet again. Annu Kapoor & Anushka Sharma took home the filmfare for their supporting roles while Barfi was awarded the ‘Best Film’ award. Many congratulations to the winners………….now getting back to our fashion business, Filmfare Awards are a big deal for fashionistas as it sets the tone for the year ahead in terms of celebrity fashion. IFP takes you through the red carpet of this event & reviews the fashion.

Photo Courtesy : Bollyone.com

Filmfare-Deepika2

Deepika Padukone in a demure Prabal Gurung…….with a body like hers I feel she did absolute justice to this outfit. On anyone else this gown would have looked trashy but Deepika wowed me…….the fit, the cut [especially the cut work], sheer draping, ¬†no accessories, coral lips and hair tied up. Deepika is back to rule the red carpet for sure. Love it…….. ūüôā


Filmfare-Ileana

Ileana D’cruz wanted to shine for the big nite…..she did bag the ‘Promising Newcomer’ Award for her role in ‘Barfi’. This ‘Roberto Cavalli’ outfit reminds me of the glittery 1970s where sequins were very fashionable. Not a fan of this outfit, but Ileana did manage to tone the look down with tasteful jewellery, clutch & shoes ¬†to match.

Filmfare-Ranbir2

Ranbir Kapoor dressed in all black three piece suit which did look vintage especially the button detail on the jacket. I wish Ranbir would surprise us with much more fresher looks especially in Indianwear. The stubble & the all black attire is turning a bit boring. He is a fine actor of this generation, but would love to see him rock the red carpet too. SIGH!! ūüė¶ ūüė¶


Filmfare-Priyanka

Priyanka Chopra has been wearing alot of colour lately but never expected her to wear something so loud. The colour with so much of glossy sheen was simply over the top……..add the trail of the gown & we ¬†have a Prom Queen. Hate this look on Priyanka though neck up she did look very pretty but the outfit is altogether a different story. ūüė¶ ūüė¶ ūüė¶



Filmfare-Alia

¬†Alia Bhatt making a graceful appearance in ‘Manish Malhotra’ lehenga in which she looked pretty. But why opt for something so safe, why not experiment a bit with your style???

Filmfare-Anushka

Anushka Sharma made me remembered the 1960s era where the flower power was on its rise and the winged eye-liner trend at its peak. The canary yellow colour is lust worthy and the entire looks spells vintage. She is wearing a ‘Victoria Beckham’ gown. L-O-V-E in capital for this look………that aside, ¬†Anushka would look wonderful with a fuller figure though……what say people???

Filmfare-Chitra

Breaking away from the conventional lehenga & anarkali style, Chitrangada Singh made me proud in this ‘Anand Kabra’ outfit. The side swept braid, vintage jewellery and the colour all get browny points from IFP. Chitrangada has been a risk taker on screen as well off it and her style shows positive signs of the same.

Filmfare-Minnisha

Minnisha Lamba in a Krishna Mehta pastel outfit………….with the lack of some bright colour this look was a total wash-out on Minnisha. I wish she would have added the colour in form of jewellery or bright coloured lipstick. I did see this collection of Krishna on the runway and also liked it. But not liking the way this outfit was styled on Minnisha. Sigh…:-(

Filmfare-Neha

¬†Neha Dhupia wore a ‘Victoria Beckham’ outfit in black with hair accesories to highlight her look. I do like this look but wish she would have added some more drama to her look. The plain outfit of hers is like a canvas which Neha could have made look a lot more glamorous with addition of a belt to match her jewellery. ¬†Nonetheless simple look works as well.

Filmfare-Yami

¬†Yami Gautam in a ‘Tarun Tahiliani’ pastel lehenga…………waist up she does look pretty but it is the detailing on lehenga which was not needed. The corset type choli would have looked better if it was paired with a plain net lehenga. But hey, that is just me……….do you like this look of hers???

Filmfare-MAdhuri2

Madhuri Dixit Nene went all glam in this shimmer blue ‘Alberto Makali’ ¬† ¬†…………..she has taken a risk opting for this gown and unfortunately this one comes across as too flashy than classy for me. ¬†I wish she would have given one of those ‘Dior’ looks in which she looks heavenly………shimmer in subtle proportion looks good but too much can spoil the entire look.

Filmfare-PArineeti

Parineeti Chopra seems to be taking a liking to Gothic looks coz her ‘Rajat Tangri’ dress goes feel dark to me. On Parineeti the dress is a misfit…………just not feeling this satin attire. Wish Parineeti would have opted for a more colourful appearance that go all black in satin. I find this look totally dated. ūüė¶ ūüė¶

Filmfare-Sridevi

Sridevi in coral ‘Alberta Ferretti’ gown is a surprise for me……..fortunately it is a pleasant one. Though this might not be her best looks till date but the elegant manner in which she carries off this look is superb. Pairing the outfit with a Judith Leiber which works well with her outfit, IFP is happy to see Sridevi take risks. ūüôā ūüôā

Filmfare-Vidya2

Vidya Balan in her trademark ‘Sabyasachi’ saree posed along with her hubby Siddharth Roy Kapur. Though we have seen the check saree on her earlier too in a different design, I wish Vidya would opt for something out of the designer’s new collection. It is boring to see her don the same look while taking no risk. ūüė¶

Filmfare-Raveena

A cocktail saree in black & green looks beautiful………top it off with hairstyle with tight curls and you have a recipe for style disaster. That is exactly what Raveena Tandon did to this look. ¬†I do like her outfit but her hair……..please someone tell her hairstylist to have some mercy. ¬†ūüė¶

Filmfare-Urmila

Urmila Matondkar in her ‘Manish Malhotra’ style did manage to look good after a lonnnnnnggg time. She absolutely had me on the colour of her outfit plus the styling was in sync with her attire. Absolutely like this one ūüôā

Filmfare-Aditi

¬†Aditi Rao Hydari went the saree route in this Gaurav Gupta……….she looked amazing in this grey shimmer saree that gave a very gown like feel to the look. She kept the look understated with minimum accessories………one of the few looks given by Aditi. ūüôā

Filmfare-Shahana

¬†Amongst the celebrities who opted for traditional attire, Shahana Goswami was a delight to see. Dressed in a ‘Sabyasachi’ black lehenga, she did look glamorous and perfectly styled for the evening. The hair pinned up in a bun, the red lipstick and only earrings look works for me………what about you???

Filmfare Nominations Bash 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on January 15, 2013

Filmfare Awards Nominations for the year 2013 ¬†were announced in Mumbai. ‘Barfi’ leads in the nominations and IFP hopes it wins the award for ‘Best Picture’. IFP takes you through the red carpet of this nominations bash to see how well the celebrities were dressed.

Photo Courtesy :MSN India &  Bollywoodlife.com

FF-Priyanka

Priyanka Chopra wore a white ‘Dior’ with a glittery clutch to add the zing to this look. ¬†Love the hairstyle with bangs and love the way Priyanka looks classy. ūüôā



FF-Alia

Alia Bhatt in a peach gown which had floral bodice that she could have flaunted with her hair pulled back. Plus the bronze oversized clutch does not compliment her look at all. I do prefer her Screen Awards outfit over this one. ūüė¶

FF-Anushka

Anushka Sharma wore a ‘Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna’ ……..waist up she does look nice but the pants & the shoes are another story all together. It would have been preferable if the top would have extended as a knee-length dress. Sexy stilettos would have helped too to glam this look for a red carpet event.

FF-Sridevi

Sridevi went the rouge in this chiffon top in balloon sleeve teamed with high waist trousers. The top, hair & make-up get our thumbs up but the¬†length of the trousers & the fur clutch bag were the spoilers. A smaller clutch & a knee-length skirt might have worked here. ūüė¶

FF-Imran

Imran Khan in a grey suit looked amazing…… IFP loves the way Imran is always dressed fabulously at events. Liking this look at the way for sure ūüôā

FF-Sonali

Sonali Bendre in a Manish Malhotra anarkali which came as a surprise since she usually opts for well-known designer duo. She did look pretty in this outfit and IFP thinks she looked elegant. ūüôā

FF-Deepika

Deepika Padukone opted for wide leg trousers with a sequins jacket ……..unusual choice for red carpet but IFP has no complains. Deepika can carry off this look with sheer ease……..the hair, make-up, clutch & the outfit blend well. Plus she looked different & comfortable in this look.

FF-Ranveer

It sure has been a long time since IFP last saw Ranveer Singh on the red carpet. Dressed in a basic black suit & a beard to go with it! After seeing his casual looks in the past, this one surely looks good on him. Hope Ranveer continues his suited booted looks in near future too. ūüôā



FF-Aditi

Aditi Rao Hydari wore a fuchsia ‘Gaurav Gupta’ gown but the pose seem too stern for such a beautiful outfit. Love the outfit and the hair but a cuff or bigger earrings would have look glamorous. Sigh!

FF-Ileana

Ileana D’cruz was spotted wearing a BCBG Max Azria one shoulder gown, the shades of blue were indeed soothing. The loose curls are what that are a mismatch with her serene outfit. Hope she would have tied her hair up in a pony or an updo. As for the outfit, I do like the gown due to its colours.

FF-Sophie

Sophie Choudry in ‘CUE by Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna’ outfit looked smoking hot. The outfit had glittery accessories & shoes to complete the look. Sophie can surely carry the sheer neckline well without looking tacky. ūüôā

FF-Raveena

Raveena Tandon in a Manish Malhotra Anarkali………….She did look pretty waist up but I felt Raveena could do way better than this look. Seeing her in Anarkalis has become a routine. How about adding sarees & gowns to the collection?

Hello! Hall of Fame Awards 2012

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on December 14, 2012

IFP reviews the formal black carpet in this case at the Hello! Hall of Fame Awards 2012.

Photo Courtesy : Koimoi.com

Hello5

¬†Madhuri Dixit Nene entered this event in a black ‘Dior’ gown with hair doneup and make-up kept simple. She does look pretty but wish the silhouette especially the skirt part of it was not pleated instead a slimmer fit would have worked wonders for Madhuri. Nonetheless adore her on & off the red carpet. ūüôā

Hello4

Katrina Kaif was also awarded the Hello! award where she wore a purple leopard Dolce & Gabbana print gown. This lady is effortlessly beautiful but her style needs loads of drama. I wish to see Katrina in more structured outfits than just in doll like dresses. Sigh! ūüė¶

Hello8

Anushka Sharma in Roberto Cavalli monochrome print outfit left me a bit disappointed. Firstly the outfit is too plain and required¬†accessorizing¬†plus the old fashioned hair. This look gives me the feel of a gown without any glam quotient. ūüė¶ ………..Not a fan of the dress.

Hello7

Sridevi along with hubby Boney Kapoor & daughter Jhanvi were spotted at the awards. Sridevi opted for a Prabal Gurung gown which was a dream….though I would just add that the messy hair braid was not desirable here…..Sridevi still managed to wow me. ūüôā ūüôā

Hello6

Ranbir Kapoor in jodhpuri pants & a jacket………….nice outfit but wrong occasion. How I wish he would have combined a jodhpuri jacket along with the pants to complete this formal look. Not a fan of the stubble as well. ūüė¶

Hello3

Arjun & Meher always make a good looking pair at any red carpet event. Arjun in his basic black suit was complemented by wife Meher’s golden sequin gown. Though not a fan of the gown but Meher sure makes this look work.


Hello9

Sonali Bendre opted for this bright coloured saree with a nude colour sequin blouse. I am taken aback by so many colours in one outfit……….this one is way too filmy for me. ūüė¶

 

Hello10

Sussane Roshan in a leopard print ‘Dolce & Gabbana’ outfit. For the occasion, this dress fits the bill. Thank lord that Sussane kept this look gracefully simple is minimal accessories. Like it… ūüôā

Hello11

Priyanka Chopra received the Hello! Award in her Dolce & Gabbana gown…………Every red carpet event I am sure to spot Priyanka in pastels………….Wish she would opt for more lively colours as seeing her in pastels is getting way too boring for me. ūüė¶

‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ Premiere

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on November 14, 2012

 

Yashraj Films Diwali offering ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ premiered at the Yashraj Studios in Mumbai. Displays of Movies directed by Yash Chopra adorned the canvas on the red carpet. In the memory of the late director YRF had this showcasing where all the bigwigs of Bollywood attended in order to pay their respects to the great film-maker. IFP gets you the update on the red carpet of this event.

The leading ladies of this movie looked goo posing on the red carpet along with Shahrukh Khan. Anushka wore a blue, shimmer gown by designer ‘Roberto Cavalli’ while Katrina stuck to her favourite ‘Tarun Tahiliani’ saree style gown in golden. Out of these 2 pretty ladies, I am wavering more towards Anushka’s red carpet style…………but Katrina did look beautiful. SRK was dressed in a tuxedo and posed with the cast, wife & friends.

Gauri Khan also opted for a ‘Tarun Tahiliani’ saree style gown in blue. The clutch looked out of place with this outfit……though Gauri did work the outfit well the styling of this look could have been way better.

The entire Bachchan family attended this premiere. Amitabh & Jaya Bachchan were dressed for the occasion with Amitabh opting for a tuxedo while Jaya wore a graceful saree from her personal collection.

Abhishek & Aishwarya posed for the cameras where Aishwarya opted for Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla design…as for Abhishek he went for a bandhgala in black. I wish Aishwarya would not start opting for more fitting silouettes since she has lost so much of baby weight. Wish to see her flaunt in beautiful sarees……………have seen too many of these¬†voluminous anarkalis on her off late.

Sridevi and Boney Kapoor walked in for the premiere……..sridevi looked glorious in a peach, shimmer saree [my guess – Manish Malhotra]. ūüôā ūüôā She matures like red wine with each passing day.

Madhuri and Dr. Shriram Nene attended the premiere, where Madhuri was in a pink saree while Dr. Nene went for a casual look with a dinner jacket over denims. I wish Madhuri would experiment more with her hair……….maybe an updo for a change ūüôā

Preity Zinta was the sunshine at this premiere……….she looked beautiful in a canary yellow saree with floral motifs all over. IFP does like the outfit plus the colour scores browny points from me………:-)

Aamir Khan made an entry with wife Kiran Rao. Aamir seemed to be experimenting with a new style of combining a vest with baggy pants……….unfortunately the pants were what went wrong in this look which he topped off with ankle high boots. ūüė¶ As for Kiran…………no complaints for her look which was neat & sleek.

Hrithik roshan was present with his family too. Posing here with wife Sussane who was dressed in a pink Abu Jani – Sandeep Khosla anarkali. Dress whcih I do like……….it is the oversized clutch which I don’t like with this outfit. As for Hrithik……….formals might have looked better on the red carpet……….:-(

Akshay Kumar & Twinkle Khanna made an appearance post their new baby girl was born. Twinkle wore an Abu Jani – Sandeep Khosla design as well in beige & bronze but it was the big hair that made the look go wrong. The emerald earrings and Bottega Veneta clutch is classy but not crazy for this look. :-(. Akshay Kumar did look dapper but it were his shoes that made me sigh…..SIGH.

Imran Khan who has donned a mustache and looks every bit like a Haryanvi but still handsome. Wife Avantika was trying to channel vintage look with the hairdo & outfit. IFP does like the saree but the hair messed it up. She is young and should bring out that image of hers than try to look older than her actual age……. ūüė¶

Rani Mukherjee was in her signature style – ‘Sabyasachi’ lehenga . Rani did look nice in this outfit especially with the pearl strings. on the red carpet IFP likes this look of hers….:-)

Sonam Kapoor in Elie Saab gown for the premiere……the outfit is beautiful but on Sonam it comes out to be heavy and voluminous. The gown does was beautiful¬†detailing¬†though but the entire look is not working on Sonam.

Rekha was all glam & glitter at the premiere in a golden Kanjeevarem saree. I would love to get into her wardrobe just to see her awesome collection of Kanjeevarem sarees. Though the colour is too bright for me…………..it works on Rekha. No complains here ……….:-)

Parineeti Chopra opted for a ‘Gauri-Nainika’ gown in black……………this structured gown ¬†required more definition in terms of styling. The hair is too soft for this outfit o=plus the clutch adds to my woes…………..a sharp hairdo combined with demure make-up should have done the trick………and swap that clutch with a shimmer one please. Not liking this look one bit…….. ūüė¶

Juhi Chawla was accompanied by her husband Jai Mehta. Juhi also stuck to her signature style of anarkalis with wedge kolhapuris……..I seriously wish to see Juhi in glamorous sarees and beautiful kurtis rather than see her in this look every time…..another sigh from my end. ūüė¶

Mini Mathur has me drooling over her saree choices…………at the premiere too she wore a beautiful white saree with colourful border. ¬†She poses here with her husband Kabir Khan…………IFP likes her look as she manages to stand out of the crowd. ūüôā

Ameesha Patel looked good in a white gown with dangling earrings and a shimmer clutch. I think this might be one of her better looks in recent days………IFP likes. ūüôā

Ritu Kumar’s unveils the ‘Panchvastra’ Collection at her New Store.

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on February 10, 2012

Ritu Kumar Launches New Flagship Store at Raghuvanshi Mills, Mumbai where the New Couture Collection ‚ÄėPanchvastra‚Äô Unveiled. Here is an exclusive IFP look at this glam event.

 

Celebrated designer, Ritu Kumar announced the launch of her new Flagship Store in Mumbai at the Raghuvanshi Mills, Lower Parel over a Couture Presentation, co-hosted with Vogue Magazine, on Thursday 9th February 2012.

The designer‚Äôs much anticipated couture collection titled¬†¬† ‚ÄėPanchvastra‚Äô¬†is a representation of the many personalities in a woman and is infused with the signature Ritu¬†Kumar embellishments that the designer is internationally recognized for. The collection is delicate and feminine with a vibrant colour palate comprising strong hues and bright, bold shades. The use of mirrorwork, along with gota¬†and zardosi embroidery, lends a regal look to the collection.

¬†The presentation in Mumbai revolved around 5 main characters ‚Äď Ganga, Draupadi, Kunti, Amba¬†and Gandhari, showcased beautifully over an instore¬†showing by models.¬† The finale garment from this breathtakingly dramatic new collection was worn by none other than the statuesque Anushka Sharma.

Anushka wore a co-ordinate of an expression of Punjab and its colours and aesthetics of saffron, fuscia and orange. The lehenga is a tie dye co-ordinate with cypress motifs ranging from rich fuscia to saffron of the golden fields of the Punjab. The blouse is a Phulkari embroidery with ghunghru embellishments co-ordinated with an antique Phulkari bagh or odhni.

 Purity, seduction, swayamvar, exile and darkness are the predominant themes running through this eclectic collection. The first mood, purity is brought to life with hues of white and peach that have been woven together beautifully to convey the essence of the sequence. Seduction is displayed with bold and rich colours, with burgundy standing out as the strongest colour tone. The palace of illusions segment is represented by an exquisite use of Swarovski crystals on embellished and extravagant garments. Exile, as the fourth sequence brings forth a mélange of colour with the use of orange, gold and fuschia. The ensembles signifying darkness comprise vivid and beautiful dramatic pieces in black, gold and indigo.

The evening brought forth an eclectic mix of people from the world of fashion, art, theatre, design and business.Seen admring the couture collection and congratuation Ritu Kumar were Reena Wadhwa, Camelia Punjabi, Chhaya Momaya, Monica Vazirali, Nisha Javeri, Kunigh Singh, Shibani Agarwal, Akanksha Agarwal, Kailash & Arti Surendranath, Kriti Soni,  Mandira Bedi, Shaheen Abbas, Nethra Raghuram, Sangita Sinh Kathiwada, Shruti Seth, Anjana Sharma amongst many others.

¬†Speaking on the occasion, Ritu¬†Kumar said, ‚ÄúPANCHVASTRA is a collection with a rare synthesis of fashion, craft and inspiration. The costumes have a rich feel, which emanate from India‚Äôs oldest and richest crafts researched over the last 45 years. What adds a newer dimension to the collection is the more contemporary yet aesthetically sound interpretation of the same idiom by Amrish¬†Kumar. This takes the collection from vintage costume to an aspirational younger offering giving it a rare synergy recreated for a newer generation”. She also spoke about the importanc of preserving India’s rich embroidery and craft traditions.

The new Ritu Kumar flagship store spread over 2600 sq feet is a sprawling space beautifully done up to have a blend of contemporary Indian architecture and heritage, modernly styled-looks that befits the  designer collections it houses.

GQ ‘Men of the Year’ Awards

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on October 1, 2011

GQ magazine gave away ‘Men of the Year’ awards in Mumbai………………..and we¬† had to write about who wore what and how did they fair on the red carpet. So here we go……..

Shahrukh Khan has been voted the best dressed man in India but I sometimes wish he would experiment with a bit of color rather than always playing safe in black. Though he does look good in his statement black tuxedo complete with push back hair.

Mrs. Khan of the other hand is definitely a graceful dresser……..Gauri was seen at this event wearing an ‘Emilio¬†Pucci’ lace¬†dress, Judith Leiber¬†clutch and Jimmy Choo shoes. I like the fact that she did not go all matchy-matchy with her accessories instead opted for a silver clutch & nude open toe heels. Simple, elegant and absolutely appropriate for the event.

Farhan¬†Akhtar seems to have forgotten the essential of these Tux……………the bow-tie of course. A handsome face like him definitely would have looked better styled if he had taken a little more pain in completing the evening look……………rather than just walking in without the tie.

Anushka¬†Sharma was seeing wearing this green ‘Dior’ gown with loose curls on one side…………I am not much into this color but I cannot deny the fact that Anushka¬†looked absolutely amazing. On anyone else the outfit would not looked so good, but Anushka sure makes it work.

Freida¬†Pinto posed for the shutterbugs¬†in this ‘Versace’ gown………….unfortunately the sequin-feathered¬†tail gown could not make Ms. Pinto stand out in the crowd. In a single colour, the gown had too much detail work which did no justice to Freida’s petite frame. I wish she would have chosen one of her knee-length dresses which she is able to work so flawlessly.

It was a surprise to see Prateik¬†in a suit looking dapper plus with a pretty arm candy!!…………now that’s ice-cream with cherry on the top. The lady in question is British model Amy Jackson who will be seen in India films soon. As for Prateik, please¬†dress this way for red carpet events, casuals are best left for time-out with buddies.

Deepika Padukone looked glamorous in this gown [my guess is Ramona Narang] but the shoes were just so wrong on this outfit. I wish she would have opted for strappy heels instead of pumps. The hair, the make-up and the lady all do look fabulous, but one wrong thing can make the entire outfit look bad.

We might have to wait to see Siddharth¬†Mallya carve a niche in the business world, but this man definitely rocks on the red carpet. I do like his sense of style and the effort he puts in to look good at every event. Even here he looked neat in these tuxedos……….some established bollywood stars should make a note on ‘how to dress’ for glam events.

Imran Khan never makes a mistake when he has to dress up a formal event. I suppose his style at GQ event speak a lot about his sense of style. Love to see him in well tailored¬†suits and tux…………perfect 10 on 10 every time. As for his wife Avantika, she did look pretty in her red wrap dress and bronze peep-toes.¬† Except for the hair, I do dig her outfit………….nice.

‘Vision in White’ is how Simi¬†Garewal likes to keep her style………..no doubt she looks incredible and absolutely defied aging but I do wish she would add more color to her styling in form of accessories. All white can be boring at times………..:-)

More pics coming your way.

Vogue Beauty Awards 2011

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on July 30, 2011

Vogue India and Mickey Contractor come together every year to celebrate the Vogue Beauty Awards 2011, of course we have loads of celebrities making their presence felt at this event. Here is your low down on who wore what and how did they fare???

Anuskha Sharma

It is jumpsuit galore these days…………Anushka’s choice for the event was also a jumpsuit by Stella McCartney. She rocked this look which was sophisticated yet perfect for the event. The satin jumpsuit added loads of elegance to her pretty looks plus the strappy shoes were a perfect fit with the outfit. All I can say that it is casual but appropriate for such a fun event.

Madhuri Dixit

And I fall in love with Madhuri Dixit all over again………..this is how this beautiful lady ought to dress up and enter fashion events. She looked every bit graceful in this black gown with earrings to add that touch of ‘bling’……….I would have added a cuff too, but nonetheless Madhuri works that gown superbly. Do check out her ‘Vogue’ cover this month…………I am all eyes the way she has been styled……….she looks like a ‘Diva’ in true sense.

Dia Mirza

Dia Mirza opted for this shimmer top dress [I think it is a’Vince’ outfit again] and basic black open toe pumps for the night……she did look cute and that is what we are not looking out at the red carpet event. Since she is going thru the sequin dress pahse, I feel Dia can definitely do better than this.

Feroze Gujral

Feroze Gujral came in a black and white off shoulders gown with a traditional ‘Matha Tikka’………..I wish she would have given it a miss since just the gown works for me……..a cuff or a neck-piece would have given a glam look. This mix of traditional with the west somewhere did not gel well.

Shraddha Kapoor

Shraddha Kapoor is going places these days with walking at Couture Week, as the face of ‘Lakme’ and now at Vogue Beauty Awards…….usually one sees her dressed looking fun and ready to party. But this off shoulder gown in brown made me cringe my nose………..I prefer the Shraddha who is ready to experiment and take risks with her looks. This one is way too simple for my taste……….does no justice to her pretty looks.

Tisca Chopra

Tisca Chopra also went for the safer route by opting for black gown but somehow failed to make an impression with her style…..The Alexander McQueen clutch is the only pretty thing in this entire ensemble……….I truly believe it was the length of the gown where the entire look went wrong……….the hemline should have been a wee bit lower to cover those platform shoes……..better if she would have opted for high heel pumps without platforms. ¬†Alas such a pretty lady….maybe it was not her day.

Simone Singh

Simone Singh wearing a James Ferreira gown is a good combination………..the satin outfit stood out of the rest………the hair, the unique pattern of the dress, the cuff and the shoes……………..I feel she looks pretty when all of these are combined together. One someone else the dress might have not looked that great………Simone did absolute justice to the ensemble.

IIFA Awards 2011 – Green Carpet

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on June 26, 2011

The Final day at IIFA Award 2011 arrived with so much of craziness all around. The entire Bollywood is have a ball at Toronto and making it’s presence felt in the far west. We have gotta see what the star looked like on the Green Carpet at this event………….even Hollywood celebrities turned up for the event………now that’s what I call Glam……

Shahrukh Khan

King Khan we know that you loooooooovvvvveeee black whenever you are on the red carpet, in this case the green carpet…………..but please give us a surprise once in a blue moon. He arrived in a basic black suit with a black shirt and to top it all a black tie………….he does look dapper, but I need a change from the routine………..seriously.

Bipasha Basu

Bipasha Basu looked every bit Glam in her Ramona Narang outfit in beige with golden accessories and coral nail paint. Though I feel the dress was just too short for the event but I am glad to know that she did change into a black gown afterwards before appearing on stage. Nonetheless she does justice to this outfit and looks great. Only she could have carried this outfit off with such an ease……..

Anil Kapoor and Hilary Swank

 

Handsome man with a beautiful woman as an arm candy are always a ‘Hit’ on the green carpet………….and Anil kept both these elements in his mind. Thank god he opted for a black suit with a golden beige tie looking every bit like a gentleman…….seems like he did take tips from beti Sonam…..:-) As for Hilary Swank, perfect is the only word for her.

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra wore a ‘Manish Malhotra’ Summer collection for IIFA………….a white lucknowi detail work lehenga with silver gotta and a velvet blouse to add the much desired pop of colour. Love the outfit but it falls flat due to the styling part….. I wish she could have gathered the ‘pallu’ and left it on her left instead of drapping it across. But Priyanka does look pretty when it comes to her make-up and hair.

Malaika Arora Khan

Malaika Arora Khan came in to shock me with her choice of outfit…………a one shoulder lace number with a cut out waist pattern spoiled the look for this beautiful lady. Plus the heavy earrings did no good either. The hair, the accessories, the dress, sadly looked disastrous on Malaika. Let’s just say that it was not her day at the IIFA Awards.

Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma also came in as a surprise to me when she dressed up in a ‘Sabyasachi’ saree for the event. I had expected her to go in for a demure gown or a short dress…………..sadly this ensemble did not¬†excite. Seen this before on other actress as well¬†but Anushka looks pretty as ever. She even took home the trophy home………maybe Sabyasachi is lucky for the leading ladies of bollywood???

Sonakshi Sinha

Flawless, flawless, flawless is my review of this pretty young star…………….the all shimmer dress in black, a Bottega Veneta clutch and a pink flowers in her updo was what I am looking out for a red carpet look. Sonakshi just delivered that look effortlessly looking like a million bucks. Love the dress, the styling and the make-up. She gets two thumbs up for getting it right with her 1950s look on the red carpet……..

Sridevi 

Woooooooooooohhhhhhhhhoooooooo, Sridevi is such a Diva in this red gown which reminds me of aValentino due to the drape of the gown. The pulled back hair updo look, the diamond accessories, I am all eyes for her, even at this age she looks better than ever………….young ladies entering the filmi duniya, go take some lessons from her on how to be a star at any age.

Shilpa Shetty

Shilpa Shetty in an off shoulder black gown is a good idea but add in a chucky necklace and a bright large purple clutch with lace shoes…………….then you have the recipe for red carpet¬†disaster. But this time around hubby Raj Kundra looked good in this understated look…………Shilpa should have ideally ditched the clutch, opted for a ruby & diamond neck piece and wore a Jimmy Choos for this event………….I am sure she would have looked heavenly.

Sharmila Tagore

The gracious Sharmila Tagore was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award which made me think that she is way too young to get this award. I mean look at this pic above and you will¬†realize¬†that she still looks amazingly beautiful more than the actress these days. The saree, the jadau necklace, the simple hair & make-up…………….one word for this Diva – ‘Classic’. She is the Audrey Hepburn of Bollywood for sure.

Genelia D’souza

Genelia D’souza came all dressed in a Gaurav Gupta gown for the event, though I am not that impressed by the detail work on the one shoulder pattern plus the layered trail on the side……….I must say that Genelia still looked pretty in this outfit. The beige-golden colour and the hair were appropriate for such events, just the clutch somehow seemed out of place. I do expect Genelia to give us better red carpet look next time around.

Cosmopolitan Fun, Fearless Awards – Red Carpet Review

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on March 7, 2011

The well known Cosmopolitan magazine had organized a Fun,Fearless Award events in Mumbai with many A-List celebrities gracing the red carpet. For our dish of the event, let’s see who fared well and who was a disaster on the red carpet.

Kareena Kapoor

Somebody who looked different has to be Kareena Kapoor in a beautiful peach colour with shimmer ‘Elie Saab’ gown. She looked very cute but wished she would have tied her hair up since she is wearing a halter neck. But nonetheless this look works for me since it is chic yet effortless…………Like it from the short dresses that she usually wears at such event. Refreshing change for once….

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan


The lady in black i.e. Aishwarya wasnot looking exactly what I would expect her to wear. She is into wearing pants off late but all black looks very boring on her…………black trousers with a smart top with some ruffles would have looked good on her plus more colour with some open toe pumps. But hey that is just my opinion………………For someone who had rocked the red carpet at the Oscars, this is way too ‘bland’……more colour required here.

Imran Khan & Avantika

Imran Khan walked in with wife Avantika, both dressed in black with Imran wearing a neat black suit and a clean shaven look while Avantika went for a very lady like ‘Gauri & Nainika’ gown. Love the simple look and think that as a couple they look great. For the event this style is very appropriate given their young age. Like it………..absolutely.

 

Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma wore this simple black gown that actually lacked imagination……………….for an event where one can be dressed in fun colours and fashion forward designs why go retro with simplicity. I would have liked her wearing a knee length dress like a ‘Prabal Gurung’ in bold colour coupled with killer heels………….Not liking this since have seen her do much, much better earlier. She has the bod, the grace and the naughty eyes………why not flaunt it???

 

Malaika Arora Khan

Malaika Arora Khan who is dressed to the nines on the red carpet, this time around seems a little out of place with straight hair, traditional Indian jewellery, the bandage dress and the shoes……….especially the shoes which is ruining the entire look. I do love her jewellery but feel it would have looked better with the gown in same colour rather on this short dress. For now, not into this look………….hope to see a great one in future.

 

Ramona Garware


Ramona’s dress colour reminds me of egg yolk or mangoes and not fashion forward. The colour simply washes her out with the blonde hair and the peacock blue open toe pumps. Even the all gold bling is not able to save the look. A darker shade would have worked but this is not my cup of tea………anybody liking this look???

 

Masaba Gupta

Designer Masaba Gupta looked quite dapper in the black short dress with matching shoes and a turquoise blue clutch to add that pop of colour. The sheer fabric detail at the waist does get our focus but in a subtle manner, just wish if she would tie her hair up and experiment a bit with longer earrings. Like the look which is age appropriate and just right for the event.

 

Shahid Kapur


Unfortunately I cannot find the handsome Shahid Kapur in this pic………..what I see here is someone who has come straight from work and is tired to dress up for the event. The¬†stubble, no belt, the unpolished brown shoes and the crinkled pants……………need I say anymore. For someone who looks good, this is unfair……….next time Shahid Wrap up the shooting hours before in order to dress up for the red carpet or drop coming to such events if you wanna be dressed like that. Hate it………..

 

Neelam and Sameer Soni

Did somebody wrap Neelam in a silver foil and present her on the red carpet???? Yup that is what they did………..the newly weds though look made for each other, their dressing is not very appealing. Sameer Soni walks in wearing a blazer and denims, a style which I quoted as ‘out of fashion’ in ‘Fashion for Menswear‘…………….read this site Sameer!!! As for Neelam, the dress is too flashy for she oozes loads of grace & elegance. Wish to see her in a more diva-like avatar in pastels, peach and pinks.

 

Simone Singh

 

Peaches and cream is what I call Simone for her flawless skin, she came dressed in this shimmer number combined with black leggings. I like her look for it is glamorous but very stylish……….I like the way she dresses up at certain event and is totally comfortable in her skin. Though personally I would have worn stud earrings instead of a chandelier ones which Simone is seen wearing here, she can carry it off well. Like this ensemble………

 

Ranveer Singh

Leather jacket that too folded, pressed in half, faded denims and the red shoes coupled with bad hair do……………..a perfect recipe for red carpet disaster. Ranveer Singh simply forgot to see the mirror before leaving his home…………… his boots might be any big label but with the jeans tucked in so badly they spoil the entire look. A talented actor but definitely needs a stylist when it comes to red carpet………anyone interested in applying for the job????

Big Star Entertainment Awards – Who wore What???

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on December 23, 2010

This one was a very first award ceremony by Big FM & Star¬†network¬† which did have loads of star power due to the presence of A-list celebrities. Let’s take a look at who wore what????Also featuring the best & worst dressed Celebrities………

Malaika Arora Khan & Arbaaz Khan

Malaika¬†& Arbaaz¬†do make a perfect pair together, but what sets them apart has to be their dressing style. On one hand Malaika¬†dresses to the nail and on the other Arbaaz¬†walks in wearing a ripped jeans paired with a black blazer. Arbaaz¬†please dump the ripped denims¬†by wearing something more posh. By the word ‘posh’, Malaika¬†is wearing a black¬†dress by Victoria ‘Posh’ Beckham¬† but the nude colour heels spoiled the show completely. Love the clutch with the dress¬†though.

Tina Ambani

Tina Ambani¬†seen here¬†in a rare appearance especially at a film award dressed to party away the nite………unfortunately the attire just lacked the elegance. I would have loved to see her in a designer knee length¬†dress in full sleeves¬†that would emphasize the positives like her pretty legs. The shimmer halter top makes her look too top heavy which in turn takes away the grace of her personality. Hope to see her steal the show again in future the same way¬†when she ruled the silver screen.

Anushka Sharma

Riding high on the success of her recent film ‘Band, Baaja, Barat’ …………….Anushka¬†made her presence felt in a geometric print short stretch dress looking ‘HOT’. And wowww her killers heels again in geometric pattern with her sexy legs complete this glam look. Another plus for this look is¬†no flashy jewellery¬†which would have taken the focus away from this outfit. ¬†For the award event, this is definitely a red carpet outfit for a woman in her 20s.This daring outfit is from ‘Versace’……………of course. My verdict : Best dressed in western wear

Amitabh Bachchan & Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Amitabh¬†Bachchan¬†accompanied by bahu¬†Aishwarya¬†also graced the occassion¬†by wearing a simple black suit with a striking red tie. But isn’t double breasted¬†suits very 1990s???? He does seem to carry it off wellbut¬†seeinghim¬†in a bandhgala¬†is always a dream come true. Aishwarya¬†who came in as a surprise though not a pleasant one since this ‘Manish¬†Malhotra’ saree is too much of a mess. Plus the saree draping is a disastor…………….maybe she was in a hurry. The clutch simply disappears in the identical dark background. No offence to the designer, but the ‘Sabyasachi’ look suited her much better.

Vidya Balan

I am loving this lady’s new avatar, thank you Sabyasachi!!!! Vidya¬†Balan¬†has finally found her signature look. Who else could have carried of this bold check that too in chrome yellow and black. I don’t think anyone would have been able to do justice to this outfit, better than Vidya. The minimum ‘Ambi’ detail work on the border of the saree adds the required ‘glitz’ to the saree. The mogra¬†gajra¬†is definitely this season’s ‘must have’ hair accessory. Kudos to Vidya¬†for experimenting with saree and taking fuuuuuullllll advantage of her ethnic looks. My verdict : Definitely the Best Dressed in Indian attire

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.
