‘Abu-Sandeep’ the label celebrates 25 Years

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on November 9, 2011

Renowned designers Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla celebrated 25 years in fashion business in Mumbai where many celebreties were invited. The designer duo associated this big event with ‘Moet & Chandon’ and the party took place at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai. Here is a look at who attended this big event:

Mum-to-be Aishwarya Rai Bachchan suprised everyone by making an appearance at this event along with hubby Abhishek.She glowed in a Black & Golden outfit by Abu-Sandeep and marked a perfect 10 with flat joothis in the same combination. Abhishek on the other hand needs to ditch the leather jacket look where he is neither formal nor sporty. A clash between the 2 looks spells disaster on the red carpet……….Abhishek we love you more in a formal look, sporty look is just not for you.

Dimple Kapadia and daughter Twinkle Khanna also dazzled the red carpet  in their respective Abu-Sandeep outfits. Both of them have been muses for Abu-Sandeep and loved fabulous in this off-white ensembles.

Kudos to Twinkle for adding a ‘pop of color’ via her ‘Bottega Veneta’ clutch and Jewelry……………she did rock the red carpet.

Is someone trying hard to get attention of the shutter-bugs??? Well Sonali definitely got our attention when she posed in this mis-match saree outfit. The detail work on the blouse is beautiful but when combined with this saree made way for red carpet disaster. Not liking the look where the hair is a mess, the saree pallu is draped just for the heck of it……………..as for the Shristhi Behl and Ali Zafar they seemed to have a good time at the party….:-)

Sussane Roshan attended the event D & G lace dress which was unfortunately paired with wrong shoes & clutch. The nude peep toes and the huge clutch seemed out-of-place and made the look feel more bulky. Since the simple lace dress calls for more drama, Sussane could have paired this outfit with a glitter clutch and shoes in black.

As elegant as Kirron Kher is, at this event she looked a bit in a hurry with the hair & jewelry totally out of place. May be it was a bad hair day for Ms. Kher who is usually dressed in the most classic way. Still like her choices of saree and the way she carries them……….sigh.

Here is someone with ’18 till I die’ spirit…………….Queenie Singh has the body women of her age would envy but unfortunately her choice of teeny-tiny outfits makes her a fashion disaster. The element of grace is missing in her styling…………….Queenie needs to dress in a more elegant manner if she needs to make a fashion statement.

Making a rare appearance on the red carpet was Sangeeta Bijlani in a black lycra fit top and a sarong………….wait is that a SARONG on the red carpet…………….there you have another fashion disaster. The see through effect caused by the camera lights and the sarong which is better off for pool parties do make Sangeeta guilty of bad fashion choice. Such a pretty face…………..such bad styling….sigh

Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jessia came in hand-in-hand at this party where Mehr wore ‘Herve Leger’ bandage dress in peach while Arjun kept it simple in a blazer. Mehr had me on the color simple she either opts for black or white. This color choice is a pleasant surpise……..Love this appearance by her where the dress obviously takes all the attention and the accessories are kept simple.

Celebrity Sightings this week

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on October 21, 2011

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Baby Shower

Jaya Bachchan welcomed every guest for Aishwarya’s baby shower which was held at the ‘Bachchan’ residence in Juhu. She was seen wearing this beautiful pastel-golden motif saree [my guess Abu-Sandeep]. Love the saree though the hair needed a bit of help…………..on second thought since it was an event at her residence, so whatever complaints I have gets compensated by her graceful saree…….:-)

Bipasha Basu was seen wearing a ‘Manish Malhotra’ creation in pink & white…………..she did look gorgeous, love her hair but what was an eye-sore was Karan Johar dressed in oversized denim shirt and pants. A kurta would have done better work……………but the ceremony was meant for ladies, so can let Karan go off the hook for now.

Twinkle Khanna definitely knows how to dress for any damn occasion…………she looks stunning in this Abu-Sandeep designed kurti-churidhar along with a ‘Chanel’ bag and peep-toes. Two thumbs up for Twinkle who has always opts for classic pieces. A color like this would have not worked otherwise on someone else……………Twinkle simply rocks in it.

Neetu Kapoor also came in dressed in Abu-Sandeep outfit, Do I need to say anything about this beautiful woman who still looks charming at any given time…………….elegance, grace and poise……….Neetu surely has it all.

Also spotted at the event were Neelam and Manyata Dutt…………Neelam looks pretty in a blue-green kurti-churidhar, I do like Manyata’s peach saree but neck up the story is entirely different. Wish Manyata would opt for a new hairdo and avoid chunky jewelry even if they cost alot of moolah.

Designer Neeta Lilla along with her daughter Nishka in their own creations. The Kalamkari saree from Neeta’s recent collection looks amazing on her plus the chunky neckpiece works well with the outfit. Though wish to have a better pic of Nishka……

Poonam Sinha Also made an appearance at the ceremony in a green saree combined with a purple blouse…………Poonam has surely made color blocking work for her. Like this simple look of hers…….

It is not so often that one gets to see Saira Bano at events, but she did come to the ceremony in a red saree looking graceful as ever. I strongly feel that today’s actress lack elegance which was seen in yester-year actresses. Sigh……..

Spice Mobile Launch

Sonam Kapoor who is the brand ambassador of ‘Spice Mobiles’ was seen at it’s recent launch of mobile phones. Clean lines with this dress which she prepped up with a blue bib necklace & braided hair. She managed to look flawless especially after her black gown debacle. Good to see her bounce back with such a charming look.

Rockstar Promotions

Ranbir Kapoor and co-star Nargis Fakri have been busy promoting their upcoming movie ‘Rockstar’ in various cities. Seen here in a more traditional avatar of patiala salwar and kurta on both of them. If I had to pick one look it will have to be Ranbir’s attire in a khadi kurta with silk salwar and the ‘Ray-bans’. As for Ms. Fakri, the short A-line kurti with a patiala salwar is just too much of mess happening.

Johnnie Walker Jet Black party

Caught Bipasha basu partying the night with pal Deanne Pandey at Johnnie Walker Jet Black party held in Mumbai. Bipasha wore a Falguni-Shane Peacock creation in black which was the party theme color. She looks smoking hot in this sexy attire…….all heart for this look.

Schokolaade Launch at ‘Anita Dongre’ flagship store

‘Schokolaade’ desert cafe was launched at Anita Dongre’s flagship store in Bandra with Abhishek Bachchan as the ‘guest of honor’ along with celebs like Sangeeta Bijlani, Sonali Bendre, Sameera Reddy, Gayatri Oberoi, Pria Kataria Puri and host of others. In case you are tired shopping at the store, hop in at Schokolaade for a quick munch…….:-)

Abhishek Bachchan looke dapper in white shirt with denims but I wish he would appoint a stylist who tells him that a stubble is not always fashionable.

Celebrities at Lakme Fashion Week

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on August 23, 2011

Celebrities and fashion fraternity have always been like ‘Ying & Yang’……..one is incomplete without the other. Celebs have graced the runway every season since the inception of Fashion week, but what I find more interesting is to see them off the ramp and on the red carpet. That is exactly when my devil’s horn come out and mind spins into action mode. Let’s catch up on what the celebrities wore for the big event:

One got to see Karisma Kapoor on 2 days at LFW where she had come in to cheer for her neice and sister Kareena. Seen wearing a white ruffle collar top with blue denims and a b/w bag…….no one can do the basic white shirt better than Karisma. As I always say, Karisma is all about ‘Class’ and she reflect a good one in the above outfit…….

Though her look on the LFW -Finale Day could have been better since the top was more of a dress combined with skinny jeans………..I missed the glamour factor in this outfit. This one appears more of what one can expect Karisma to wear on a casual day……….for a Fashion Week, I wished she would have put on a more alluring attire to woo people.

Twinkle Khanna also attended the LFW where she was seen in a black & white attire……….nothing much to ponder over but I do like the ‘Scorpio’ brooch that she had accessoried her top with. Rest was too casual for a Fashion Week………ladies please dress up a bit more fashionable.

Neil Nitin Mukesh who came in dressed in a suit designed by Designer ‘Narendra Kumar’ looked undoubtedly handsome. The suit is all shimmer but other things are kept matt which works well here……..I am never in favour of men sporting a stubble on the red carpet, but in Neil’s case I make an exception.

Queenie Dhody had daughter Tiara Dhody for company at the recent LFW………..now here is the truth, they both look like they are best buddies dressed in similar style, unfortunately the hemline of Queenie is shorter than her daughters, talk about age-appropriate dressing…………..I am literally bored of seeing Queenie do the short dresses at every red carpet event………..need a change.

And I at last get my wish of seeing Ms. Dhody in pants coupled with a ruffle top and a ‘Hermes’ belt to grab the attention to that slim waistline. Like it for sure………..hope to see Queenie in more of these in future.

Also seen at Sabyasachi’s showcasing of his collection was Vidya Balan. Vidya is obviously wearing a ‘Sabyasachi’ creation. The peach blouse with a white saree reminds me of vintage fashion which a timeless beauty like her can carry off gracefully………though I am not a fan of her black potli bag……but that is just me.

Katrina Kaif choose a ‘Manish Malhotra’ creation when it was time for her to attend the LFW. We have seen this same look at the Filmfare awards where more than half of the actresses were dressed in floor length anarkalis. Not a fan back then, not a fan now either.

The ever so ‘Hot’ Sridevi confirms her star status every single time she steps on the red carpet……….despite the fact that she has not had a movie come out for more than a decade but she can certainly give new comers a run for their moolah. Sridevi attended Sabyasachi’s show in a Sabyasachi saree………..’Divine’ is one word for this ‘Diva’.

Amazing Celebrity make-overs

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on January 19, 2011

 I have always wondered how hard do the celebrities work at looking good???? Do they have a checklist which they follow every single time they step out of their residential door???? Or their stylist does all the running around to find that perfect look for them??? It is not that even they were born perfect……………….but in the course of time in this competitive high fashion world they have achieved perfection. Some people change their looks with time, reinvent themselves and once they find their signature style………………they stick to it for a lifetime. This is what exactly happened with these celebrities who looked just like another person but are one of the stylish people around.  

Saif Ali Khan

Way back then

  

‘Chote Nawab’ as he is called with love, started his career on a low point without any help from his family………..for years he stayed in the shadow of famous parents and an equally famous wife. But that did not deter Saif Ali khan from experimenting………….though the initial years were tough for him since he was always offered second lead roles in films. His long hair, loose ill-fitted clothes and bad fashion sense made things only worst for him…………..until ‘Dil Chahta hai’ happened. In comes Saif Ali Khan with a new shorter hair cut, clean-shaven look, and bit of muscle………..and what you have???  Women screaming their hearts out for this cute dude!!! He has gone on to look better and better and better with every passing day……………..he is the lead actor for big budget films, walks the runway as show-stopper and has a hot, hot Kareena Kapoor as his partner. Need I say any more about one of the best transformation in Bollywood history.  

Now

 

Shilpa Shetty

 

Before

Can you imagine our very own Shilpa Shetty looking like that in her before pic…………..I am glad that we get to see her in the ‘After’ avatar now. If I had looked at her earlier pic, I could have never imagined that this young girl would go on to become one of the most stylish woman with oodles of sex-appeal. Must say one thing, that Shilpa has worked hard not just on her bod, but her hair, her clothes, her face and her attitude………….Love every bit of it on her. She started out with a small role in ‘Baazigar’, was paired opposite all the famous actors on-screen but that did not do much for her image in the filmi dunia. She wore bright jhintak colours with bad hair and equally bad make-up. People said that her days in Bollywood were as good as over.Then in comes ‘Big Brother’ and her whole world changes…………….. thanks to designer-friend Tarun Tahiliani, the ugly duckling became a Swan at last. Offers stated pouring for Shilpa – fashion week, movies, launches, premiere, IPL team……………she was all over the place. I am glad that good things came her way since she is one of the soft-spoken and ever-smiling celebrities that I have come across. She deserved her long-awaited success.

After

    

Salman Khan  

Salman Khan in his earlier days

 Yes the young man in the pic above is Salman Khan during the earlier 1990s………………all bones, no muscles. Salman Khan started out in the movie industry as a simple guy you would love to take home to meet your parents……………..but over the years he has become a dread you would fear to take in front of your parents……………………please do not take my comments to your heart. But this ‘Dabangg’ has revolutionized so many fashion mantras among the common people, be it with his attitude, his style, his clothes, his sunglasses, hosting a reality show or his humanitarian project ‘Being Human’…………………………..he always does it in style. Over the years one has seen Salman turn from a gawky looking young fella to a Macho man fit for our Indian version of ‘He-man’. Many controversies shook his life, despite the setbacks Salman always focused on evolving his looks for his roles, taking up newer challenges. One thing commendable about him is that he never followed the herd…………………the crowd came wherever he went. He might not be my top favourite stars, but I still love to see him host ‘Big Boss’ and his movies………………maybe that’s why the phrase exists……You can love me or hate me, but can never ignore me. That is the reason why Sallu bhai features on the list of ‘Best Bollywood Transformations’.

Twinkle Khanna

Twinkle while starting out in Bollywood

 Twinkle Khanna is the daughter of Legendary actor Rajesh Khanna and beautiful actress Dimple Kapadia…………….know though she is also known as Akshay Kumar’s better half but Twinkle has established herself as a ‘Fashionista’ making to the ‘Best Dressed List’ all over the leading mags. Amazingly Twinkle never looked this good, the photo above does prove that to quite an extent. Curly big hair, sleepy eyes, frumpy baggy clothes never did much good for the lady. Today I can swear by her choice of outfits, hairstyle and accesories……………she looks like a million dollar buck. Thank God for the transformation, we have a ‘Diva’ on this list.

Twinkle in Verve Magazine as ‘Best Dressed’

Sridevi

 
Before

We have seen Sridevi since past 30 years go from an ugly duckling to a glam queen of Bollywood to finally becoming a ‘Graceful Swan’………………..I prefer her look in her 40s than her in earlier years. Long gone are the days of flashy lipsticks, huge bindis,traditional  kanjeevarams, ghajra as hair decoration, big jhumkas and in comes ‘Herve Leger’ outfits, chiffon designer sarees, subtle diamond jewellery and Jimmy choos to match her outfits. Sridevi has never looked better since she started out in Bollywood……………………can’t wait for her to make a comeback in movies. But she does make to my list of ‘Most Amazing Transformation’. She makes me believe that ‘Life does begin in your 40s’…………….at least fashionwise.

Best Dressed Women in 2010.

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on January 5, 2011

Considering that last year was full of fashion weeks and glamorous red carpet events, there have been many stylish women from across our country trying to look their very best…………….how many of them actually succeeded???? Well the number is quite low since many of our celebs are brand obsessed and never care to look if the outfit actually suits them well or not. There were however few beautiful women who got my attention when it came to dressing up for the event. These women have made it to my list of ‘Best Dressed for the year 2010’.

Karisma Kapoor

  

Though she is not doing films anymore, but she can still give other younger actresses a run for their money. The reason why she is on my list for 2010, is that she puts in a lot of effort to look good even during her pregnancy. I am truly her fan since my teens when I used to dance around her ‘Le gayi Le gayi’  song from ‘Dil to pagal hai’. Sister Kareena Kapoor too dresses to the nine every time she is on the red carpet, but there is an elegance in Karisma’s style. Whether she dresses up in a party wear or simple dresses down in her casuals, she still manages to maintain the ‘Wow’ factor in her look. She most of the times dresses up in Manish Malhotra’s outfits who has been a helping hand in transforming her into a Glam Queen. She is one of the celebrities who has inspired other women that motherhood does not mean compromising with looking amazing, hence in my list she will always be a top style ‘Diva’ of all times.

 

 Rani Mukherjee

Surprising isn’t it to put Rani Mukherjee on this list, but can anyone actually remember her not dressing up and looking good last year???? I simply cannot plus let us not forget that she was one of the first actresses to introduce us to the talented Sabyasachi Mukherjee on the silver screen. She has been seen at many recent events dressed in her very best looking better than ever. Long gone are those outfits which used to make her look older than her age. In comes the fashionable short dresses, pencil skirts, jump suits, flared pants, funky denim, unusual saree patterns………..loads of new addition to her wardrobe. And I must say that on her petite frame, I am loving her new ‘avatar’. She has been trying hard to make a successful comeback, with this style of hers I am sure people will be more than happy to have her back.

  

Kalyani Saha Chawla

Her name has become synonym with the brand ‘Christian Dior’ or ‘Dior’ for which she is the brand ambassador. Another feather to her ‘Dior’ hat would be styling Sonam Kapoor for the fashionable movie ‘Aisha’ with the glam outfits, shoes and bags to die for.  I have never seen her dress in anything obnoxious in any event………………her look is all the way sophisticated, classic yet very contemporary. She dresses in outfits which compliment her rather than just following fashion like the rest of the crowd. Maybe that is why she always stands out in events despite not being an actress.

 

 

 Malaika Arora Khan

 

Malaika Arora Khan needs no introduction where fashion is concerned. She experiments a lot and takes risks with her looks which very few people in the public would dare to do. Her style quotient is ‘demure’  in whatever she wears. If the dress is short, then the shoes & the clutch take centre stage, if it is an indianwear then the back and the fit of the silhouette will be given more emphasis than the rest of the dress or if it is a gown then the jewellery will be the focus. I cannot think of any dull moment last year when Malaika was not dressed up to our expectation. Her hair are done, her clutch and shoes is very much ‘In vogue’ and her make-up is flawless. Be it on the cover of a magazine or any red carpet event, all I can say that ‘Munni’ absolutely ‘rocks’.

  

Twinkle Khanna

Twinkle Khanna has totally revamped herself…………………..I remember the days when she had started in the film industry when she had the horrible hairstyle combined with the neon colour ill-fitting clothes plus to keep up to the expectations of her mother’s glamorous image in the movie industry. I am glad today when I see her in any red carpet event all dressed to kill. Today give her any dress to wear and she turns out like a queen wearing them…………her style includes knee-length dress in fabulous colours that compliment her skin tone, anarkalis or short kurtis paired with churidhars, pants with tops that usually emphasize the upper half of her body and loads of amazing designer jewellery. With Twinkle now following her mother’s footstep in style department, she definitely gets thumbs up from me as the Best Dressed Woman.

  

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor is like a breath of fresh air in this filmi dunia where style revolution is just getting started. I have never seen anyone wearing vintage Indian jewellery with western outfit and still look like a million bucks. I think style is something she inherits from her mother who is herself quite a ‘Diva’ though she does not come out much for red carpet events. Her penchant for designer wear makes every woman gush with envy plus her ‘to-die-for’ accessories like jewellery, shoes or bags………………..I can’t have enough of it. I actually look forward to her red carpet appearances since she always surprises me with her attire yet remains classic all throughout. At her age, she has got every style fundas right.

 

 Gayatri Oberoi

 

Gayatri Joshi nee Oberoi had made quite a charming start to her movie career with Swades then suddenly she disappeared to be married to renowned builder Vikas Oberoi and have two children. But I never thought that her come back as a socialite would be so pleasing to the eye. Gayatri is every bit of sophistication these days…………….she wears outfits with clean-cut, sober colours and is never too flashy unlike other wanna be socialites. She does experiment but never goes to extremes since she sticks to what suits her best rather than be fashion crazy. Cocktail dresses, pants, sarees, designer salwar kameez and churidhar are what she is mostly seen in. All I can say about her to other fashionistas is keep it simple yet elegant……. that too much of wealth does not mean you have to show it off to the limit.

  

Feroze Gujral

 Feroze is the quintessential ‘Fashionista’ since the time she first appeared in Digjam Suitings ads in late 1980s. I maintain one thing that she stills looks the same…………….I somehow find her growing younger as each day goes by. She is daring in her style but whatever she wears seem to suit her well. Gowns, skirts, flowy dresses and pants are her style must haves. she is also a writer for many leading newspapers & magazines. One of the few socialites from Delhi who I believe to be ‘est Dressed’on all occasions.

  

Princess Diya Kumari

Princess Diya Kumari from Jaipur might not be a regular on Page 3 but she has her presence felt every time she is on the cover of a leading magazine or in the newspaper supporting a cause. She is seen regularly in gorgeous chiffon sarees, in a Royal attire, a Salwar Kameez or a designer Sarees when posing for the magazines. Her Grandmother Rajmata Gayatri Devi was known for her beauty and fashion sense. Princess Diya Kumari seems to be carrying on the legacy. As elegant as she is, my wish remains to see her more often in social events where we can catch a glimpse of those amazing Sarees. I am sure that she will be a delight for many of our Indian designers who can design their best for her.

Who looked ‘Hot’ at the HDIL India Couture Week 2010???

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on October 12, 2010

There were few women who looked amazing on the red carpet of the HDIL Indian Couture Week 2010, rest everyone else left me high & dry with their styling. Let me make some of you understand that you need to take red carpet events seriously and it doesn’t matter if you wear a non designer outfit or a designer outfit…………….the final aim should be to look good no matter what. And please never go extreme with your make-up, hair or accessories……………too much is definitely not required here. Women who understood this fact have made to this list……………..see for yourself why they looked ‘Hot’………….

Twinkle Khanna

Twinkle Khanna has never looked better till date. Her transformation from a former movie star to a superstar’s wife has been superb. At HDIL India Couture Week 2010 Twinkle Khanna wore a ‘Kay Uger’ outfit with Alexander McQueen’s ‘The Britannia’ clutch for that much-needed pop of colour and those shimmer open toe heels. My Verdict : She looks like a vision in white and the outfit is very event appropriate.

Karisma Kapoor

Karisma Kapoor wore this amazing one shoulder top in red paired with black pants, glittery clutch and a black heels. Simple, elegant and to the point. Karisma definitely knows what good style is………………..her style never screams for attention yet manages to get plenty in subtle manner. I have maintain that she is one of the few celebrities in the Indian Fashion scene who knows what looks good on her and is not a fashion victim but a classic diva.

Suzzane Roshan

Check out Suzzane Khan in a glittery ‘Herve Leger’ bandage dress which is so different from what the other celebrities and wanna bes usually wear on the red carpet. I like the way this dress looks on Suzzane since she has kept the accessories to the minimum and let the dress do all the talking. No one else could have carried it off as well as Suzzane did……….

Sonakshi Sinha

Sonakshi in yellow was quite unexpected but what a pleasant surprise this is……………….this one shoulder Raakesh Agarwal outfit is absolutely complimenting Sonakshi’s skin tone. Plus she has just worn golden earrings to add a bit of glitter to this outfit. The shoes were kept in nude tones…………..on the whole love this look of Sonakshi.

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor is wearing a vintage dress which costs only US $25 but beats out any other designer wear. With her mother’s heirloom vintage neck piece and Valentino heels who could have rocked this outfit better than Sonam??? Sonam has made me believe that it is not necessary that fashion has to be worth thousands of dollars but a classic little black dress like this one can be red carpet appropriate if worn with proper accessories and hairstyle. This 1960s inspired look gets two thumbs up from me…………..Sonam you rock girl!!!!

How to dress in your 30s!!!

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on April 28, 2010

I have come across many people who dread the age 30 and crossing over for them is a big deal but honestly it is totally in your mind coz 30s is the next 20s. Looking at beautiful women in their 30s and still rocking the fashion scene, I feel age is just a number now and it is ok to let people know that you might be 30 years old but have become wiser, much more calmer with time. A woman in this age group is more confident about her body and comfortable in her own skin. Her skin glows coz her pimple face years are behind her and her wrinkles are yet to arrive………….in short she is in the best shape but that does not mean she does not have other concerns in her life.

A woman in her 30s is at her busiest stage in life whether it is about children, work, family, social life…………..she is always in a hurry. But nonetheless she has never looked more stunning since she is at a stage where she can blend the elegance with beauty. Gone is the age-old myth that a woman in her 30s needs to cover up……………if you have a good healthy body, go ahead flaunt it………..

Please remember to dress your age and not younger, coz you will end up looking like a big mess believe me since we all see such disasters on the red carpet quite often. Embrace the 30s and you would have never looked better in your entire lifetime. Indian silhouettes like Sarees and Salwar Kameez are evergreen whatever be your age but go in for well-fitted tailored pants, formal tops paired with denim, knee-length skirts, evening gown, long flowy dresses work for this age group. Say goodbye to mini-skirts even if you have the body to carry it off…………it simply is not age appropriate……..besides one can look even more sexy without showing off too much of skin. Go in for floral dresses for the summers teamed with a pair of shades, bag and flat shoes or sandals like gladiators strappy ones [avoid flip-flops unless you are at the beach] for day-wear, a smart formal top combined with a belt on top of a formal trouser/skirt and stilettos/kitten heels for office wear.

For a more casual look try going in for a t-shirt [no skin fits please] or a shirt with jeans as per your body type since skinny jeans might not suit all body type. Halter neck look great be it day-wear or evening time………….I even love to see women in their 30s wearing square and v-necks to focus on their collar bones and neck.  Evening gown or knee-length dresses work for this age group which makes one look alluring in a very classy way when worn with a small clutch and a pair of open toe heels. Open toe heels are my favourite be it with Indian or Western attire they look good any outfit.

Oversized bags should be avoided at any cost unless you are travelling go for medium-sized leather bag in a sober colours like black, brown and beige which you can match with maximum outfits in your wardrobe.  Also don’t forget to co-ordinate your bag with shoes and belts. Saree can be worn with halter necks for a glamorous look, Kurti chudidhars are a must-haves, Empire waist dresses are to die for………………Fabrics like chiffon and crepes work for this age groups……….One shoulder dress/top make a woman look ‘oh-so-fabulous’. Also one can try lace tops, wrap dresses and ankle length boots [avoid if you live in a tropical city]

Avoid too chunky or girlish jewellery [please no cartoon motif here] instea. d opt for silver and gold combined with diamonds or precious gems. Go for long chains, chandelier earrings, classic stackable diamond rings and bangles with western outfits whereas do wear heavy kundan jewellery like earrings, necklace and bangles with your Saree/Salwar Kameez since I feel this age can easily carry off heavy Indian jewellery………………..as a rule concentrate either on the outfit or the accessorises do not have both in excess. If your Indian attire has heavy all-over embroidery then go light on jewels and vice versa.

The photos displayed below are of the celebrities in their 30s who still rock the page 3 with their fashion sense and have never looked better.
