John Galliano's Box of Crayons

John Galliano's Spring 2009 Haute Couture had all the usual elements of theatrical opulence.His shoes beget the same level of excitement as his clothes. This year his collection can be summed up as "Fantasy in Strings".The color palette is lovely and the shoes "very Galliano"!! May the GOD rain more shoes kissed with fantasy!!!

Oscar Matrons Meryl Streep & Sophie Lauren

A tale of two sisters of which one is a nun and other a fairy godmother!!


Oscar Ragamuffin Heidi klum

Heidi Klum, the glamorous super model who scaled new heights and carved a niche for herself, well I'm not taking all that credit away from her.But sometimes with so much success, one's ego plays the dare devil, convinces the self that neatly tailored clothes are for lesser mortals, while the gorgeous Heidi , who has hit a jackpot in the genetic lottery, only needs bales of shiny red tablecloth (found in some obscure restaurant in China town) slit at odd places and tied together with a bow!!! Heidi dear, time to visit a seamstress!!!

Oscar Ghost Melissa George

This is Miss Havisham attending the Oscars after being betrayed by her lover on her wedding day!!! Well the wedding dress was a victim of her rage and all that remained was the corset...

Oscar Devil Beyonce Knowles

The idea of a huge clipped rose on a figure hugging dress ending in a fishtail seems infallible, but to execute it on a fabric that seems so wrong even as a drapery, well it leaves a lot to be desired.Anyway, the devil too needs its share of fun too...


Oscar Fairy Sarah Jessica Parker

Or so she wants us to be believe!!!


Oscar Mermaid Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway's ethereal-mermaid-on-red-carpet Armani Prive dress with Swarovski crystals glittering all over it seems like an extended holiday in Glitter Land.Anne seems to to saying "Look, there seems to be something paler than me"!! Baby, a little color would do you a ton of good, what say?


Oscar Angel Penelope Cruz

With the Greek-goddess-descended-on-earth look, Penelope is one of those rare beauties, who beautifies a dress rather than being beautified by it.In this vintage Pierre Balmain she is enjoying one of those "Penelope moments of elegance" on the red carpet, wearing white and still managing not to look bridal or like a fairytale princess but every bit of a charming women that she is.Penelope Cruz, you are truly theAngel of Fashion!!!


Oscar Goddess Marion Cotillard

Look, a goddess at Oscars attired in Dior Haute Couture Fall 2008 dress !!!

Freida Pinto says "Jai Ho Galliano" at the Oscars

After courting various designer's handiwork to the innumerable award shows celebrating the magical journey of human optimism in Slumdog Millionaire, it seemed a perfect fantastical culmination for Freida Pinto to turn up at the Oscars in an equally mystically beautiful gossamer dress from John Galliano's Spring 2009 Ready-To-Wear collection.I personally adore this dress for the innumerable creative options that it throws open, inviting it to be dressed over contrasting colors like peacock green, fuchsia or black.The silhouette is a bit disappointing on Freida especially around the waist and that her stylist decided to go with the blue look throughout, doesn't seem to convey the eccentric quirkiness of Galliano thats so resplendent in this dress.

All I wanna say is "JAI HO GALLIANO"!!!

Happy Valentine's Day

People have different ideas of carrying themselves around on Valentine's day, while some in their over zealous effort to look their best (like the girl in the left pic) on D day try some crazy "maple syrup and lemon master cleanse" facial that leaves them so badly burnt that they have to hide their face till the next Valentine's day, others just trade their suits for one strewn with multi colored hearts(one for each of their innumerable Valentines of yore) and go about their business as if its just another day!!!

Whichever type you belong to, a Happy Valentine's Day to all my readers!!

Getting Dotty at Places...

Anyone else wants to adorn this House of Holland's Spring 2009 Ready-To-Wear dress?


Sharon Stone says J'adore Galliano

Sharon seems to be saying "I'm red and rocking!!". Another stunner from Galliano.

From Sofa to Bedroom ...

Before your neurons start firing crazy impulses, let me clear the air by saying that these spring couture shoes showcased by Roger Vivier are so vertiginous that they are ideally meant to be worn for walking between your living room and bedroom, considering that these shoes retail at five figures I'm assuming that even that walk would be a considerable distance. While the first shoe is a double decker made of croc skin, the second one is of 20 carat gold encrusted with diamonds on the bird of paradise so beautifully seated on the vamp!!! Viva la couture!!!

Valentine's Day Pick

Add a splash of color to your LBD on Valentine's day and dance the night away on Montmartre. And yes, I dare you to climb all the way up!!!


Haute Couture Brides of Spring 2009

What makes a haute couture bride? Bold, elegant and most important of all, wears the most extravagantly edgy wedding dress.Baring the affordability factor, tell me whether you can see yourself in any of these dresses on your D day?

Am I not a vision?

Hey, where is my bridal veil ?

What if he forgets the wedding?

I cannot wait to wed my prince charming!!

Not So "Hot" Couture

Can someone please point me to the sucker who would spend a six figure on a red piece of cloth draped over one shoulder?


Work or Leisure?

This reminds me of days when I'm torn between the idea of a leisurely swim versus a day at office.Any takers for the dress?
