MARCHESA “India Inspired”

First, CHANEL and now MARCHESA.  India has been the root of inspiration for both fashion houses this year.   Marchesa did a beautiful job of using the brocade fabrics and showcasing fine elements such as embroidery, which are a huge part of Indian Design.  They not only used the fabrics, but put their unique twist on showcasing the sari and ghagra choli style.  However, this definitely calls for a face off.  So, I will soon be posting pics from some of my favorite Indian Designer (JJ Valaya, Anamika Khanna, Sabyasachi), who I believe deserve this prestigeous of a platform and make outfits that require so much attention to detail.  Coming Soon…❤

FALGUNI & SHANE PEACOCK

How Intricate yet Powerful are these designs by Falguni & Shane Peacock?  Falguni & Shane Peacock are a husband and wife duo from India, who have worked very hard to create an identity and name for themselves in Bollywood and Hollywood. Their designs are very “ROCKER CHIC” as I like to describe them. I cannot WAIT to rock one of their creations myself.  They signify everything I believe a woman should exude …POWER, GRACE, ELEGANCE, FEMININITY, & EDGE!  It’s all in the “DETAILS”  Every piece is carefully crafted with sequins, feathers and leather to give that feminine yet edgy vibe. And the endless option of silhouettes…AH-MAZING! Truly inspirational pieces of Art.  This is what I call IDENTITY , STYLE  & SWAG! Once you have one of these on you’ll be sure to feel like …”The Sweetest Gal & the Baddest Babe” all in ONE! LOVE LOVE LOVEEEEE❤

Waris Ahluwalia -Front Row @ Tory Burch Fall 2012 Mercedez Benz Fashion Week

House of Waris Jewelry

I am in LOVE with the Tory Burch Fall 2012 Collection.  The rich colors, detailed work and chic designs are to die for.  But, what I love even more is the Fall 2012 LookBook which features Actor/Jewelry Designer Waris Ahluwalia looking dapper as usual.  Not only did Mr. Ahluwalia grace the Fall 2012 Lookbook, but he also took front row at the Tory Burch Fashion Show during Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week.  I do not know what caused the collaboration, but I am loving it because there are so many talented individuals within the Sikh community who are making their way into the fashion industry.  It inspires me to keep working harder at my goals and maybe someday I’ll be front row😉

Waris Ahluwalia is the designer of House of Waris.  He was born in Amritsar, Punjab and grew up in Brooklyn, New York.  He may still be the underdog, but his collection is definitely one of a kind.  Hence, why celebrities like Rihanna and Chloe Sevigny can be seen wearing his pieces.  If you’re interested in purchasing/browsing his collection, you can view the links below and “like” his Facebook page for daily updates! Also, be sure to check out/shop Tory Burch Fall 2012.  It is one of the most beautifully designed collections of the season.

LACE UP GENTLEMEN

Dress Shoes and Bright Laces

Here’s a little treat for all the Gentlemen.  While reading Wall Street the other day, I came across this upcoming trend in the male market….COLORED SHOE LACES!!!  I think it’s a brilliant idea and one of the most inexpensive ways to be fashion forward.  Major Menswear designers like Brioni (In the Pic Above), Cole Haan, and Dunhill have incorporated the trend into their classic dress shoes. I love love Lovee trends that are Simple, but make a Statement.  Also, the kind that transform into “Style” Statements.🙂

A few tips on how to do this fun trend?  If your wardrobe is subtle and you’re a simple guy, try starting out by doing lighter colors like pastels.  And if you’re daring, I say go for my personal favorites like Royal Blue or Reddish Orange.  It all depends on your personality.  Just make sure to stay away from other loud accessories when you rock this look. Just let your Shoes Lead the Way😉

KIM KARDASHIAN

NEHA DHUPIA

Kim Kardashian

Deepika Padukone

Peplum is definitely the Hottest and Fastest growing trend in both the East and the West.  It is a Keeper and can be worn in so many different ways.  It’s timeless and classic.  So, don’t shy away! Experiment and have fun because I assure you, it’s here to Stay!

Kim Kardashian is looked up to as a major trendsetter in the States & always one of the first to embrace an upcoming trend.  However, I was pleased to see Bollywood Actresses Neha and Deepika rock it similarly. But ofcourse, the major question is…..”WHO DO YOU THINK WORE IT BETTER?”🙂

Victoria Beckham Graces Vogue INDIA

VICTORIA BECKHAM Vogue India 2008

I know this is old news, but I just had to share because she is my Favorite Style Icon! I could not emphasize enough how much I admire Victoria Beckham. And to see her grace the cover of Vogue India is a pretty big deal.  Mrs. Beckham never plays it safe.  The beauty of her style is that even though she has categorized herself into a certain type of look, she never fails to deliver something New and Jaw Dropping.  So, when I saw this cover & the insider pics….my jaw literally dropped! Even though she is wearing a Sari that is so feminine and foreign to her daily look, it looks effortless and her attitude and personality STILL shine through. This definitely puts Indian Fashion on the Map because there are so many talented Desginers that produce breathtaking pieces of art.  So, if you want to see more, stay tuned for more updates and never seen before Indian Fashion! =)

AGENT PROVOCATEUR

KIM KARDASHIAN in Agent Provocateur Swimsuit

DEEPIKA PADUKONE “Bollywood’s Hottest” in VOGUE June 2012

AGENT PROVOCATEUR has been the swimsuit of the season this Summer.  Celebrities from Hollywood to Bollywood have rocked this “James Bond” look as I call it.  It’s sexy, bold and daring.  The cut outs and the color combinations are so refreshing after seeing the same ol’ basic “sexy” bikini advertised daily. While looking for swimwear this summer, I was very disappointed and wasn’t pleased with any of the stuff in the stores.  Then, I came across these pieces of art and fell in LOVE!  I instantly dreamed up myself wearing one of these, in a James Bond movie on a Mission. Quiet an Imagination I know !😉

Victoria Beckham


Victoria Beckham is wearing a dress from her own Collection and Rocks it!  I am in LOVE with the Color and the Strap Details.

Everything from the Hair, the makeup, to the accessories look effortlessly chic.  Victoria Beckham’s line is a close representation of her own personality and style.  The fitted dresses, with simple cuts, attention to detail and clenched waistlines are feminine yet bold.  This is a woman who is beyond trends and knows how to make a statement by following the principle of  “less is more.”
