Cover Girl: Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor is back to her goddess stature with this two stunning magazine covers. Basically #winning

Kareena Kapoor Nov 2014 Cover Girl: Kareena KapoorIt is pretty clear that I am biased towards Kareena, but hey – we all have our quirks.

Mrs. Khan appears on 2 covers this month donning two very different looks. She stuns on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Bride wearing an opulent anarkali by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. This ensemble is just BEYOND. The side swept waves and red lips are the perfect finishing touches. She looks like a dream.

On her cover for Filmfare Magazine, she  takes a more modern approach wearing an interesting dress by Amit Aggarwal. I do love a good top knot + smoked eye combo, and it works really well with the directional dress.

I am tilted towards the Harper’s cover. The anarkali has me drooling.

Wedding Style: Solange Knowles

I’m pretty sure Solange Knowles just accomplished having THE most memorable bridal look of recent times.

main.original.585x0 1 Wedding Style: Solange Knowles Beyonce’s little sister (and Jay-Z’s frenemy) wore this insanely cool Kenzo dress for her wedding to Alan Ferguson. Her cream dress, designed by Humberto Leon, featured a floor-length cape. This dress is so unexpected and so chic, it really is a testament to how amazing Solange’s style is. Natural hair and sleek gold cuffs add to the contemporary feel of this look. I think I cried a little the first time I saw her wedding pictures.

I believe this is what the kids mean when they say, she slayed it.

It gets better. Her wedding portraits are UNREAL. So fashion.

Representin’: Mahira Khan in India

Ever since the “Humsafar” onslaught a few years ago (can you believe it has been that long?!) Mahira has been Pakistan’s sweetheart. Now, with international syndication, she has become the world’s sweetheart. The lovely Mahira is currently on a press tour in India, I don’t think she has a movie releasing there so I don’t understand this but ANYWAY. I have always had a soft spot for Mahira’s style game, she can go from super minimalistic, to vintage to glam in a heartbeat. Girl is a fashion chameleon. And of course her outfits are the best part of this press tour, for me at least.

Let’s have a looksie.

mahira khan in Muse Representin: Mahira Khan in IndiaMahira smartly chose all Pakistani designers for her appearances, which gets a big A+ from moi. We have so many gorgeous talented people in the country, it is about time people start seeing that.

For her first appearance, Mahira wears a bright, floral maxi dress by Muse. I really love this dress. It is bold, colourful and unexpected. And of course she looks great in it. My only gripe is the red lipstick. With so many gorgeous shades of pink and purple I would have loved to see her in with punchy pink lip.

Here Mahira wears a shalwar kameez paired with an embellished jacket (coatie) by the amazing Sania Maskatiya. I do love a bit of throwback, the vintage vibes are working for me.  A sleek pulled back hairdo and kundaan baalis complete the look.

To me, this feels like something you would wear to a family shaadi not a press appearance. It takes things a bit too far. The Sania Maskatiya look still had a bit of an edge to it, this one is just TOO traditional and TOO formal. It doesn’t work.

Beauty-wise, this is my favourite look so far – obsessed with the slick straight hair. Here Mahira is wearing a sheer embroidered maxi dress by Feeha Jamshed. I love this silhouette on her, she looks cool and modern but the Bahawalpuri embroidery lends a touch of traditional.

What do you guys think?

Obsession du Jour: Gold Tattoos

01d0d40d605a742f4143c0e1bfe594c5 Obsession du Jour: Gold Tattoos

For those of us who love the idea of body art but aren’t 100% committed to getting a real tattoo, and have gotten over the novelty of henna tattoos after growing up with mehndi, temporary gold tattoos offer a new way to explore your adventurous side.

I love that these can work as jewelry too. Give your accessorising a spin and try a Flash tattoo bracelet or necklace instead of the real thing.
