Style took centre stage at the French Riviera

Bringing on their ‘A’ game to the mother of all red carpets, the Indian stars stood their own at Cannes 2017.
The French Riviera is host to a multitude of exciting style moments every year when the stars descend at the Cannes film festival. This year was no different as the sartorial choices of celebs grabbed reams of news print at the ten day long parade of the world’s most fashionable movie stars.
While we saw a host of International celebrities walking the red carpet, the Indian divas too stunned us with their stylish appearances. Some of my favourites at this year’s Cannes were:

1. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

An epitome of beauty and grace, Aishwarya Rai’s sartorial choices every year at Cannes grab as much eyeballs as probably a blockbuster bollywood film would. She looked stunning as she channelled her inner princess wearing a Cinderella-esque couture gown by Michael Cinco. Truly a belle of the ball, I loved her off-shoulder fitted-to-the-waist plunging neckline ballroom gown. Poker straight hair & minimal makeup completed her look.

Her choice of the gorgeous red ruffled Ralph & Russo gown for her second appearance also grabbed headlines as she completely stole the show!

2. Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone hardly ever gets it wrong. Making an appearance in a sheer wine-colored one-shouldered Marchesa gown with shimmery floral work Deepika was on the ball completing the look in her Jimmy Choos.

For her second red carpet appearance, Deepika took monotone styling to the next level. The style queen wowed all in a deep green gown by Brandon Maxwell which featured a trail and sexy thigh-high slit! Hair neatly pulled back into a textured ponytail Deepika showed off her neck tattoo in this one shoulder gown.

3. Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor is a queen at Cannes and she knows it. A constant at the Cannes red carpet, she knows how to win the game — every single time. Sonam yet again slayed the Cannes red carpet in a soft blush coloured gown by Ellie Saab. Loved her radiant look, she definitely knows how to make a statement on the red carpet year after year!

Signing off in style Sonam wore a shimmering gold Ellie Saab gown and was indeed a sight to behold!

Summer spells lazy-yet-luxe holidays! Are you heading to your friend’s pre-wedding bash to the charming Abu Dhabi or planning a South of France getaway or thinking of soaking in the beauty of Capri islands? All of these travels entail comfort, chic and practicality. Needless to say that it’s crucial to pack your travel essentials – your trusty vanity case, swimsuit, a crochet and lace jumpsuit or a mini and of course a resort gown for the night of unapologetic theatricality.

Given the current socio-political gloom across the world, staying positive and radiating positivity are the two best things one can possibly aim to do. And the Oscars red carpet reflected this resilient spirit to stay strong and conquer the turmoil with a blizzard of head-to-toe gold looks radiating shine, optimism and happiness. Fringes, embroidery, 3-D beading, sleek polished hair and pink lips were some of the trends which emerged.

New Year means a brand new closet, a refreshing new personal style and some nifty finds. It’s time to create a new style vocabulary, break away from the trappings of tiring ‘trends’ and de-clutter your already-exploding wardrobe.

The party season is here and it’s time to channel your inner glamazon, let go of all the stylistic inhibitions that you may have harbored in the year gone by. Wearing a chignon slightly messy and a bold bright pout, I bet each one of you will own every room you walk into as you partake X’mas festivities! Capturing the spirit of the season, my new collection is an essence of today’s style junkie – fearless, confident and ready to take on the world. Picture a menagerie of styles which help you mix and match and play dress up and you’ve nailed my core aesthetic.

Diwali festivities are around the corner and it’s the time to go all out and embrace your convival spirit. The very mention of the festival of light brings to mind – elegant card parties, boisterous family sit-down dinners and fun late nights with friends. Laughter, banter, flower arrangements, flickering diyas and delectable delicacies – all make it truly an evening to remember.

A moment of gratitude

1

The sweat of the brow, the anxiety of meeting deadlines, the hectic schedules, the awry sleep hours, the umpteen meetings, the angst over whether things will go as per plan….it’s all over. Phew….Putting together an event is a great task and no matter how well in advance you start working towards it, the run up to the final evening is nothing short of sheer craziness.
