Sari Style.

I was glad to have a few traditional sari sighting before the year ended.

Hema Malini and former South Indian actresses Lissy and Poornima ensured that I had my fill of red silks. Even with the monogrammed LV, I think Lissy looked absolutely gorgeous, and the addition of jhumkis upgrading the look.

Changing it up! Chitrangada Singh.

At the Maxim Issue Launch, Chitrangada changed up things a bit in way of styling. This look got me interested for two reasons.

After what seems like gazillion glammed up looks for the promotion of 'Desi Boyz' its good to see the actress don a different silhouette. And I love the bouffant hair do and strong make up. Good to see that she is having fun with fashion. Who would have thought I'd say that about a Gauri and Nainika outfit!

Celeb Travel Style - Victoria Beckham.

World's most stylish celeb traveller (according to me) rocked another travel look last week at LAX.

Dressed in head to toe black - Victoria wore a black jacket with delish details from her own line, paired with signature Christian Louboutins and a VB bag.

You know I dig her travel style, but this is channelling chic - big time.

In DKNY - Karishma Kapoor.

Remember the fab lip DKNY print outfits we have seen on Tulissa Contostavlos and Liv Taylor?

Karishma was spotted wearing a much casual version of the same print attending the midnight mass. Like? meh? Or alright for the occasion?

In Victoria Beckham - Sonam Kapoor.

Kicking up the promotions for her upcoming movie a notch, Sonam rocked her second Victoria Beckham look in the last fortnight.

The Tangerine dress paired with a statement necklace and golden T strap heels were bang on the style mark and the chic updo complimented the over all look.

Remember when Neha Dhupia wore a VB dress with a statement necklace that some of you weren’t too sure went with the vibe of the dress? Sonam has the look pat down, methinks.

In Etro - Kareena Kapoor.

First thing that I noticed was, the hair is different! ( for those who are new on here, I have a constant gripe about Kareena's poker straight worn hair)

Attending the midnight mass, Kareena was dressed in a Green Etro print dress. I do not have a full length pic to see how she finished the look, but aside from the eye sore of the Ruby neck piece, the actress looked good.

Instant Like! Prerna Goel at HT Mumabi's Most Stylish Awards.


Thanks to Prerna I have one more fabulous red carpet look before this year ends. The socialite looked breathtaking in her draped one shoulder Donna Karen gown. I loved everything about this look, the barely there make up, romantic updo and the accessories.

She was most definitely the best dressed and most stylish of the evening.

Kangna Ranaut at HT Mumabi's Most Stylish Awards!

Never one to go with mediocrocy, Kangna changed up things again at the HT event, this time dressed in a sculpted shouldered LBD.

I liked the strong shoulders and strong make up in theory, but I wish she had played down the eyes a bit, the hair and dress was sharp enough. That said, Kangna looked good, once again.

Anushka Manchanda at HT Mumbai's Most stylish Awards.

My biggest gripe when it comes to drape dresses have always been that the drapes often tend to come off as clumsy or it overwhelms the wearer.

No such complaints here. At HT Mumbai's most stylish Awards, Anushka rocked a draped look from Shivan & Naresh from head to toe. She looked Fab!

In Alexander Wang - Sonam Kapoor at Farah Khan's House Warming Event.

Sonam has been on a style roll of late, with one noteworthy look after the other.

At Farah Khan's housewarming bash, Sonam was dressed in a two toned dress by Alexander Wang paired with McQueen clutch and Stella McCartney heels.

In Gucci - Hilary Swank.

Missed posting this sighting of Hilary in Gucci Spring 2012.

Love the play of colors and the laid back glam feel , although the star is wearing an out of season look.

Jumpsuit Wars - Sarah Jane Dias & Twinkle Khanna.

Black Jumpsuits with eye grabbing accessories set the mood of style for both Twinkle and Sarah at their respective events.

Sarah's jumpsuit look was tied together well with a candy pink clutch and curls, while Twinkle kept her look monochrome with an addition of a statement neckpiece and a McQueen clutch. They both looked good, with me leaning a bit more towards Sarah.

Gone Bollywood - Arpita Khan.

For both her recent appearances, Arpita went traditional and a bit bollywood inspired.

Considering the events in questions were birthday party of her nephew and house warming of Farah Khan - one feel the looks were a bit OTT and more suited for a wedding. That said, I think she looked better in the pink and blue.

Androgynous Trend - Bhavna Sharma.

 Spotted model Bhavna at the D 7 launch rocking the androgynous look. The model has the trend bang on, love the addition of Mary Janes and messy hair.
 The fact that she steered clear of any obvious feminine touches to the look only adds to the fabulousness.

In Victoria Beckham - Sonam Kapoor.

I would not have pegged Sonam as a Victoria Beckham gal, but knowing the versatility she displays on the fashion front, I guess we would have had a sighting on her sooner or later.

The dress looked great on her and if you ever needed a reason to believe that VB's body con dresses does wonders for one's body, just look at that waist!

The Black Brigade! Dia, Kareena & Piyanka at Big Awards.

It was back to basics black for the leading ladies of Bollywood at the BIG Awards.

Styling wise, I liked how Dia carried her overall look, the braided hair and silhouette flattering on her, Priyanka a close second in her one shoulder gown paired with straight hair and strong eyes. On Kareena the hair as always got in the way, and the chunky heels didn't help either.

Dia, Kareena and Priyanka are wearing Rocky S, Namrata Joshipura and Monisha Jaisingh respectively.

Doing the Man Trend - Sandra Bullock.

The latest celeb to join the list of stas who have been sported in the very trending man trend was?

An unexpected star - Sandra Bullock. I did a double take when I saw the pictures of Sandra from the NY premiere of her upcoming movie ' Extremely loud & incredibly close'. The actress was dress in a sculpted satin Alexander McQueen suit with a plunging neckline, wide legged trousers and two figure flattering patches at the belted waist.

With her hair styled in a sleek, open style and red lips, I loved this look, she looked extremely stylish and incredibly sexy.

In colored Denims - Sonam Kapoor & Amrita Rao.

Spotted Sonam Kapoor and Amrita Rao do red denims at their recent dos.

Both opted to go the layering way, Sonam, with an asymmetrical navy jacket and white shirt while Amrita went with a grey jacket and black cami combo. I think both of them looked stylish. How pleasant is it to see Amrita so put together.

In Gucci - Blake Lively.

Answer to how to incorporate gold elements into a fabulous day look was this picture of Blake Lively.

Blake was dressed in a buttoned up white blouse and gold pleated skirt (both from Gucci Resort ) paired with black pumps and a sleek ponytail. Like.

F3 - Fashionable, Fun & Fearless - Poorna Jaganathan.

I do like a girl with a definite take on fashion and is not afraid to show it.

Poorna most certainly have a very individual style, and the more I see it, the more I like it.

At the Kiehl's launch (Thank god they are finally here!) the actress wore a  sheer skirt with sequinned panel from Cue. I love this look; she carried it off brilliantly, the boxy clutch a perfect accessory.

Who wore it better? Raveena Tandon & Natasha Poonawala.

Spotted Raveena attending 'Dirty Picture' success bash in a Roberto Cavalli gown first seen on Natasha at the Dior event.

Who do you think of these ladies wore the gown better? Ideally, I would have preferred both to have a side swept/ wear hair away from the face to show off the one shoulder details, but the way things are, I prefer Natasha's look a tad better, thanks to Raveena wearing her hair in curls.

Rooney Mara at 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' NY Premiere.

At the NY premiere of her upcoming movie, Rooney Mara did the Goth - meets -pretty girl number again, this time in a black Prabal Gurung dress with sheer, cut out details.

I loved this dress on the actress, perfectly styled by Louboutin Mary Janes, Lacquered hair and red lips. Her blunt bangs works very well with the overall look, I love how she eases in the hair with her fashion choices.
