Milan Fashion Week - DSquared 2 Autumn Winter 2010

I love Dsquared. I always have. Not as much as Tom Ford, Lanvin,Versace but I still do love them.
It is the return of the Vamp in the autumn /winter 2010, with the vibrant red lip, fur and a colour palette of black white and red.
It's the return of the Femme Fatale!

(images from

Im loving the Blumarine leather take on a trench coat, the biker jacket paired with body con dresses with gentle ruching as well as the departure from the edgier looks with a pale body con dress with a train.

Harper's Bazaar India - Anniversary Issue March 2010 Katrina and Hritik

An odd couple choice for an anniversary cover. While the Vogue anniversary cover of Kajol and Shahrukh made sense owing to their on screen chemistry, this one is just plain odd. I must admit this is the best look Katrina has on any fashion magazine cover. The outfit is age appropriate, makes her look fashionable, a MUCH better cover than Vogue.

Kala Godha Festival 2010 part Deux

Some of my pictures from Kala Godha. (incase your wondering what does kala godha hindi it means black horse, due to a statue of King George V on a black horse duing british occupation.)
All pictures by me:

2- Frames - denoting the slain police as well as army men. ( Thats my personal favourite picture)

3- A bunting seller.

Kala Godha Festival 2010

India has had a rich history in art,literature,music and dance. Off late its slowly degenerated. The annual Kala Godha festival is a treat to the eyes as well as the ears. Some of the best art is on display here as well as eclectic music and provoking plays. It is indeed sad that the government has decided that Kala Godha is a now a silence zone threatening the festival. They fail to realize the festival is platform for emerging artisans as well as established ones to bring their art to the masses.

Photographs by me- :
1- Collection of clay dolls

2- Art display of old Cassettes

3- Dolls inside a a cubicle

4-The giant bell.

Elle Cover Feb 2010 :- Freida Pinto

I personally love Elle India. I think it's one of the best Indian fashion magazine out there. Their content is wholesome and not a bit pretentious. I also like the fact very very few covers are lifted compared to Vogue.
Her position on the cover is a bit distracting with her hip being in focus. Im loving the red text and the yellow masthead. I do wish they had picked a better image from the rest of her editorial which is alot more promising.

Item of the Week - Fendi Cherry Sandals

See through accessories were a big trend for Spring Summer 2010 with Fendi, Prada and closer home Mandira Wirk. However on my lust list is the Fendi Cherry sandal.Made from plexiglass, leather and tulle this shoe is a piece of art.
