The Main Man

Today, the fashion Industry will be losing it’s main showman, Jean Paul Gaultier. He who turned fashion into theatrics and runway into broadway, draws the curtains on his long and  illustrious RTW fashion career. If you have been following me since I started my blog (ok! just ignore my year long slug period), you would know that it was initially called Runway or Broadway. The name was inspired by the shows I had watched and the pictures I had seen from his runway extravaganza which were more than just a catwalk, they were performances. My thesis was in fact titled “Runway or Broadway” – A study on how theatre influences fashion and vice – versa.  I have always been in awe of the theatrical presentation of his shows and his knack at grabbing everyone’s undivided attention. He is an entertainer and I am looking forward to seeing his pictures from today’s show and what new tricks he will be pulling out of his sleeves.

I haven’t  blogged  in a  long time now, but I needed to put it out there how this man motivates and still continues to inspire me.

And I kind of met him too ;)..haha. Dreams!

Blow-Up

4 Apr

The movie is a mod mystery, but the fashion  reflected in it is a treat to every fashionista’s eyes. Even though the movie didn’t do much for me, but the fashion definitely caught my eye. The colors, outfits, moods of the characters were sexy flirtatious and fun. Fashion, when London was swinging in the 1960’s. The story revolves around a frivolous photographer played by David Hemmings who comes across a crime scene while taking a closer look at few f the pictures taken by him. Veruschka plays the supermodel of the movie and projects bold fashion way ahead of it’s time.  She poses for the photographer in a sequined dress with slits on both sides(no sides literally).

I love the clothes worn by the models during a scene when they are being photographed by David Hemmings. Absolutely love the head piece , the make up and the colors.  aahhh the fashion in 60’s.

I love everything about the picture above. The weird poses, the set, the monochromatic crazy outfits.

Jane Birkin played a wannabe model who wanted to come into spotlight. Did you know the Heremes Birkin bag is named after her?.

Mint Obsession

5 Jun

I Love mint. It’s eye pleasing and fresh. The color makes me happy but can you believe it that I don’t own a single piece in that color?!. Boo! So for my current blogpost, I asked my friends to send me their  minty pictures as the obsession continues to grow. Look how gorgeous mint looks on them.

You got to love Elisa Nalin. No one can color block like her, be it pastel hues or bright colors , she knows how to put them together. The boyish charm, the retro glam and the girly fun..she has got it all.  And the hair?!! How many of us can sport that hair and look effortlessly chic.

Another Lady whom I have been obsessing about is Taylor Tomasi Hill. Her unique style has always caught my attention and my pinterest board cant just get enough of her. Love the way she layers her outfits making a fashion statement each time, always giving an impression that she threw some pieces together and ended up looking absolutely fabulous.

Sonam In Cannes

28 May

Sonam is a stunner , already established that. I love the Alexander McQueen gown she is wearing, great choice for the red carpet. In some pics though it feels like the dress is wearing her and she could have done better with the hair. Maybe she should have tied it up and showed her neck off a little bit. However the dress is fabulous , love the intricate details . All in all, very ladylike, very Cannes.

Doesn’t she look like a party princess??. Absolutely gorgeous in a head to toe ensemble by Dolce and Gabbana which she wore for the Loreal Paris closing ceremony dinner.. And they made maching shoes just for sonam.. Love the 60’s feel in the dress . She is totally working it.

Chor Bazaar

14 Apr

A lot has changed since I got back from the UK. From the always so fashionable country to a town in India where fashion isn’t really a subject of discussion. And now I am finally in Mumbai, India’s big city to make it large(hopefully). In terms of fashion Mumbai is somewhere between New York and London. Casual chic , sometimes bohemian would be appropriate to describe the fashionistas here. I will be soon posting street style , where you can see it for yourself.

So, I have heard a lot about the chor bazaar here , the famous thieves market where tourists as well as  locals visit daily to discover antiques and fascinating quirky little things. I decided that I must go there and experience it for myself. Hence, my friend Sweta and I set out to explore chor bazaar . There are rows of little antique shops where they sell everything ! old fans , vintage jewellery, grandfather clocks, box cameras, Victorian furniture , rusty lunch boxes, lanterns , musical box,cat eye glasses, absolutely everything. If you love to collect antiques , it’s the best place to visit and get your pieces at a good bargained price.

Camera Love

Lookie ! what I found..LV in one of the little run down shops. Fake ofcourse!  Was so amused that now, I am a proud owner of this piece, not to worry, I am not going to carry it. Just cherish it.

Fancy Little things

Attar shop near chor bazaar. Was totally fascinated. Sweta ended up buying the fancy attar bottle . Don’t miss out on the designer names.

What an amazing day. Inspirational and well spent!
