IIJW 2013 has a new venue this year…………the show opened this weekend in New Delhi. India International Jewellery Week started off in Mumbai and is now set to go to other cities of the country. With designers & leading Jewel houses of India come together to showcase their best at this prestigious Jewellery show.
The show started with Sonam Kapoor inaugurating this event………..Sonam is the face of IIJW and does true justice to her job as the ambassador in the most stylish way. She wore a colourful lehenga by designer Anamika Khanna combined by jewels created by Sonam’s mother Sunita Kapoor. IFP is in awe of this entire look which was not over the top blingy yet had sophistication written all over. LOVE!!!

‘Dabangg’ has finally released……………….the much awaited movie had its premiere held in Mumbai with all the cast present. I must say these days Salman definitely can be named as our modern-day Dharamendra which is what I can make up from his Dabangg trailer. Getting back to the red carpet affair of the premiere, many celebrities were dressed in black…………………honestly all black with no colour is very, very disappointing. The lead actor of the movie Salman Khan was dressed in a black shirt & black jeans with an aquamarine stone stud belt. I am no fan of Salman but I know that he could have done much better rather than going in for all black. I would have preferred him to come in his ‘Chulbul Pandey’ avatar rather than just another guy thing. Sallu bhai…………get a bit hip will you.
Meanwhile the leading lady Sonakshi Sinha was dressed in a black & golden ‘Vikram Phadnis’ outfit, which I felt was too long…………….I would have preferred this outfit with a churidhar instead and some amazing heels. The velvet trimmings at the base looked a bit too much though………but the golden detail work on the bustier was note worthy. The browny point here was that Sonakshi was able to carry off the dress well and with sheer elegance. On the whole the outfit did not scream for attention yet was very subtle.
Malaika Arora Khan aka ‘Munni’ in the movie looked hot in a Roberto Cavalli Dress but the red Bottega Veneta clutch and those hideous shoes made a perfect look bad……………….wish she would have replaced her shoes with a bronze colour peep toe heels and a black clutch……………..though I am digging those big earring which give a fresh look to the outfit.
Amrita Arora on the other hand looked fabulous in a brocade kurti with long slits which was also designed by Vikram Phadnis…………..the fact that I like here is the pop of colour that the ‘Rani’ pink & golden sleeves are giving it to the outfit. Love the hair, the kurti & the matching jewel buckel shoes.
Tabu also made a rare appearance at the premiere of ‘Dabangg’ wearing a one shoulder black with white trimming gown. This long thing is not doing any justice to Tabu’s bod and her height…………..and the shoes were better off with an Indian attire………….they are just not working with this outfit. On the whole, this is a mess-up from the ultra glamorous lady.
Bipasha Basu took a U-turn by turning up in a saree at the premiere………………not that I am complaining but the saree look somehow did not work for me neither did the hair. The white net saree was bad enough with the white & golden trimming but turned out worst with the brocade blouse. The hair looked equally messy……………….it was not a day for Ms.Basu…………..Sorry but not liking this saree look which was created by designer Rocky S.
Arbaaz you are the producer of this big movie and wife of glamorous Malaika but your outfit is not speaking any of those things…………………….you are definitely fearless or let’s say ‘Dabangg’ in this get up but it is ok if you dress up this way when you are on the set making a movie…………….this is a premiere and I am not impressed with this laid back style. You have to work alot on your handsome looks……………..please get some help from your wife.
Salman’s younger sister wore a jumpsuit in chocolate colour with a halter shimmer neck and a ‘Bottega Veneta’ clutch but unfortunately the entire look is too much of matchy-matchy with the shoes, clutch and watch. Plus the colour is down playing Arpita’s skin-tone. An outfit in beige or aquamarine blue would have worked wonders for this petite lady. Better luck next time………..
Sridevi also made an appearance with her daughter & hubby wearing a beige ‘Herve Leger’ bandage skirt and a knotted shirt with a waist jewel in gold and a ‘Mcqueen’ clutch……………..but the end result was a a bit disastrous with the ‘out of bed’ hair, the skirt being too tight and short [I wonder how comfortable was she] and the shirt made it look more appropriate for day wear rather than night out one. On the whole Sridevi has an amazing toned body and look at those fabulous legs…………….I am sure she will find a better way to flaunt them.
Looking at the pics of these two lovely women, all I can say – smart tops, but wrong bottoms………….Dia top’s in black with a touch of silver sequins on the sleeves is adorablebut pairing in with black tights was a wrong idea……….wish she had paired it with skinny blue jeans, would have looked better. Juhi’s kurta is quite a relief from the blacks other people were wearing, but the brown trousers were not too hot though. Wish she would have pair with black trousers or fitted denims.
Minisha Lamba came in dressed in white in a pretty white knee length dress with matching Mary Jane design shoes…………and errrr a red Louis Vuitton bag which screamed for attention. The shimmer red LV bag would have looked better with black or blue but not white. I would have preferred Minisha carrying a small clutch instead of carrying her entire make-up kit bag. Not at all subtle………infact too showy. Where the outfit was a deal breaker, the bag marred the entire look.

‘Life begins after 40’ holds so true for many women………maybe since in your forties a women finally gets a lot of time to think about herself since the past 2 decades she has been thinking about family, work and career. The 40s age era is about getting to know yourself better. Her focus is now primarily on finding an identity for herself apart from her family. Unfortunately I have seen women dressing up in their 40s as if they are still in their 20s. The fact of the matter is that the more you try to dress younger the more older you end up looking. There is no harm in aging gracefully……..
I like the fact that Indian have started adopting western wear in their wardrobe combining it beautifully with Indian pieces. Best example can be an Indian Kurti with a trouser or a knee length with Indian Jewellery………..this trend has actually caught the eye of the global fashion arena. A woman in her 40s has a strong personality which should also reflect in her dressing. My style for a woman in her 40s would be defined shoulder patterns, boat necks, trousers [loads of them in different colour], a little bit of layering to soften the look, fitted tailored jackets, Kurtis in beautiful Indian summer colours, well fitted Salwar Kameez, an elegant Saree with embroidery emphasis on the border or the pallu……….
I also love to see the women of this age group dressed in gypsy skirts which are long flowy silhoutte coupled with fitted top preferably in sleeveless and long earrings…………….this gypsy look is ‘oh-so-desirable’ when you remember the ‘hippie era’. If you wanna go classic opt for a satin tunic top with denim or trousers and simple accesories. Another favourite of mine would be long sleeve blouse on top of a skirt or trousers. The chinese collars with detailing work if you have a long slender neck else stick to round or v-necklines. Under any case avoid too tight outfits if you don’t wish to be on the ‘trashy dress list’.
If you are more inclined towards Indian outfits go subtle when it comes to choosing embroidery on the fabric or matching your jewellery with your outfits. Wear a saree or a chudidhar but with delicate accessories, please leave the heavy jewellery out for big occassions…………..it is necessary to have some glitter but not all over. There are women who want to go under the knife once they see the first signs of aging…………relax even with wrinkles a woman does look beautiful and wise. Attempt to wear neutral shade or lighter shades which reflect gorgeously on your skin giving it an instant glow. Include colourful silk scarves over formal wear or style it the way you want to. One can include beautiful mules in their shoe collection apart from stilettoes or flats.
As for bags I have seen many celebrities carry the ‘Birkin’ bag which I honestly feel is highly over-rated both in terms of fashion and price. If you wanna look your best it is not necessary that you will be able to achieve that look only by buying the most expensive designer brand. Get creative and stop following the entire herd over specific brands………..in fact find what looks good on you. Funnily the most well dressed women have always opted for lesser known brands and made them famous by wearing them on the red carpet. Originality might have it’s risk but if it works, the entire world will sit up to give undivided attention.
Some famous Indian celebrities whom I admire for their style and looking good after so many years. Believe me it is a lot of hard work to look this good in your 40s……………..but it is possible.
