LAHORE – Bachaana Music Launch

Sanam-Saeeds-Bachaana-Poster-Release-Date-Announced-1

Hello all you lovely people!

I was recently invited to the music launch of the upcoming Pakistani film, BACHAANA. Knowing my love for social events and selfless support for local cinema, you can imagine I would not have missed it albeit the severe jet -lag after an 8 hour flight! BACHAANA, as the name suggests is a romantic comedy that is packed with a lot of action and the story is based on cross cultural relationship and how eventually love transcends boundaries…as always! 😉

Oscars 2015 – Fashion Roundup!

Jared Leto poses on red carpet_getty imagesThe world around us is changing at a fast pace. Most of the men and women I know, do not take Vogue and GQ as their fashion bibles. Individuals, today dress up to accentuate their bodies in the best possible manner instead of blindly following every new trend.

Oscars need no introduction. Perhaps the most coveted night in Hollywood where all the film fraternity gathers to celebrate the movies magic while the world examines their attires among other things. Interesting I must say! 😉

This year there was no Ellen DeGeneres SELFIEE or a pizza delivery so we shall move our focus right back to fashion! (more…)

Cannes Film Festival is held in Cannes, France every year. As the name signifies, it is a festival of movies of all genres from all across the world including Hollywood, Bollywood, Documentaries etc. The Festival is extremely popular and is considered to be one of the most prestigious and highly acclaimed in the fantastic world of films. 2013 Cannes Film Festival is currently going on, May 15th to May 26th 2013. I would have gone but its an invitation only event and I still haven’t made that many contacts…not yet 🙂

Celebrities on the Cannes Red Carpet and movie screenings are an absolute delight to watch and drool over. Not because they are celebrities but because of the attention to minute details of their red carpet look.

I have compiled a list of my fav, not so fav and worth mentioning fashion statements from Cannes 2013.

Sonam Kapoor (bollywood actress)

I cannot remember the last time, I fell in love with an outfit instantly. At first glance. The dress by Dolce & Gabanna complements her style beautifully. This is my most favorite look so far!

Sonam also  wore a vintage white and gold creation by designer Anamika Khanna, complimented by a trailing baroque-effect jacket. Loving the look Sonam! 🙂

Irina Shayk (model) looked gorgeous  in pink as she stepped out in a beaded Elie Saab gown with a plunging neckline.

Izabel Goulart (model) looked like an absolute delight to watch as she swayed in an embroidered green gown with full sleeves. I am drooling over this dress by Emilio Pucci.

55 year old Sharon Stone looked lovely in her white gown with a small trail by Cavalli. The dress had a gold snake detail on the back which gave a very striking look to the entire outfit and in a very good way! 🙂

I have never understood Paris Hilton’s style or the lack of it 😛 (no offence intended). The hotel heiress had the Barbie doll look as she walked the red carpet in a pink sequined mermaid gown.

Karolina Kurkova (model) was looked super hot in a black cut-out gown Roberto Cavalli fitted gown.

Chunky nose-rings were quite the fad especially with the Bollywood Ladies. I love nose-rings and these traditional naths (nose-rings) look great but somehow Sonam (on right) pulls them off better than Vidya Balan (on left). What do you think?

Julianne Moore looked ravishing in a  showstopping Dior gown. The black bustier top and the satin lilac skirt were the perfect red carpet look. The photographers caught her feet and since then they have bashing the 52 year for having one of her toes out of the shoes. Take it easy guys! She must have been in pain so give her a break. Next time, please Julianne check your shoes before donning them to such a high profile event

Cheryl Cole looked splendid in a Zuhair Murad maroon gown but but but what I loved the most was her hair!

Eva Longoria looked lovely in a pastel green Atelier Versace gown. However, she suffered from a wardrobe malfunction or deliberately  begged for some attention with her no-underwear show! And she ensured that the world knew she wasn’t wearing any…oh boy!

She lifted her dress to avoid tripping while climbing the stairs and ‘accidentally’ showed her crotch to the world, however, some claim it could be a skin coloured underwear and all this was a desperate publicity gimmick by the 38 year old ‘Desperate Housewives’ star…

Ashwariya Rai is a usual face at Cannes since the past couple of years as Loreal’s ambassador. She has been panned by fashion critics over the years for her disastrous Cannes looks. She has managed to come up with great looks so far and some really what-were-you-thinking-when-you-picked-this-design remarks by fashion pundits

I fell in love with the white Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla floor-length anarkali with colourful heavy embroidery. Loving the clutch and nail polish as well! WOW!

Biscuit tray dress – Yes! I am not joking. A model wore a  flowing gown made exclusively of biscuit trays. I wonder who ate the biscuits? 😉

Short or long dress? or both? haha Paz Vega couldn’t decide between a short or long dress, so she figured out a way to wear both. Or maybe her best part is her upper thighs? 😀

Last but not the least, my all time Cannes favourite look is Princess Di’s Dress that she wore to the Cannes Film Festival in 1987. It was designed by Catherine Walker, taking its inspiration from the style of Grace Kelly.This dress was auctioned for £81,000 in 2011.
