KJo Has To Use KRK???

imageOMG…People are so opinionated about KJo. Just read the comments guys!

Good Lord! Weird are the ways of Bollywood. The fracas between Karan Johar and Ajay Devgn is shocking. I mean who takes help of an idiot like Kamaal R Khan to trash a colleague’s movie??? Absurd!!! Though I have always felt that KJo has a nasty streak in him, which he hides well with his overtly jovial ways.

Some Great Fashion From The Capital

MG_Bal_SundayStandardThe past week we in Delhi had a double dose of good fashion. First we had a sneak-peek at Rohit Bal’s ‘Gulbagh’ collection for the forthcoming Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2015 and then we enjoyed Manav Gangwani’s extravagant Haute Couture 2014 show. You can read my take on them in Sunday Standard. Here is the link to the ePaper: http://epaper.thesundaystandard.com/350106/The-Sunday-Standard-Delhi/05-10-2014#page/4/1

Bal_WIFW FinaleMG_SundayThank God we don’t have B-Town walas like Karan Johar pretending to be a fashion designer and creating a capsule-collection for Vero Moda. It was just a styling job, which was actually done by Anaita Adjania but K Jo laughed all the way to the bank. Jabong, an eCommerce site also played the Bollywood gimmick by signing on Alia Bhatt to do a line for them. I think they are just aping the model initiated by High-Street fashion biggies like TopShop and H&M. ECommerce fashion retailing business is plagued by sites peddling fake stuff so I personally have an issue with that.

Anyway Delhi is the fashion capital of India and we enjoy some real fashion here!

Fashionable GULABI GANG

The moment I saw this picture of actor cum activist Shabana Azmi giving a standing ovation to Olympic Medal winning gritty boxer Mary Kom as she sashayed down the ramp, the words GULABI GANG sprung up in my mind. Two powerful ladies in PINK (GULABI) fits the bill to the ‘T’. Waaaddyaa say???

The image is from Shabana Azmi’s NGO, Mijwan Welfare Society, hosted a fashion show, Mijwan Sonnets in Fabric 2012. The show highlighted craftsmanship of Mijwan’s female population through Manish Malhotra’s designs.

And yes it seemed like all of Bollywood was on the ramp, especially the two directors from the now-famous Rs. 100 Crores ClubRohit Shetty and Prabhudeva. Oh yes…how can I forget B-Town’s darling Karan Johar. He too walked the ramp in a red thingy, which looked like a ‘Bandmaster’s’ uniform. How could you don that K Jo???

 

Katrina Kaif Dazzled in Manish Malhotra @ Couture Week

A personal opinion – some Indian designers do not take criticism sportingly. I feel they should and that way they can raise the bar higher. I have often been asked: 

  • “Do you have any problem with XYZ designer?’
  •  I ask, “Why do you think so?” 
  • “No you have been critical of his/her work”.
  • I say, “If I am critical of his/her work that doesn’t mean I don’t like him/her. It is purely the clothes.”

Yes guys there is nothing personal when a scribe opiniates critically.

Manish Malhotra had a grand show on the penultimate day of PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2012. And then he had boisterous support from B-Towners like Karan Johar, Suzanne Roshan, Sheetal Mafatlal, Kajal Anand and Shaina NC rooting for every creation of his from the front-row.

Malhotra’s collection was ‘pretty’ and I am sure he will mint money out of this collection. Katrina Kaif looked gorgeous in a gold lehenga with pink borders and skimpy gold choli. But Manish I thought the choli could have had a snuggy fit. Also the layering of sheer net or Tulle was bit dense that almost hid the ornate ensemble beneath. The layering could have been more sheer. Felt like the net layer was more a cover to protect the garment from dust. What do you say???

K Jo is Thrilled for Roping in the Trashy Paris Hilton for His Show

Desperate to give his show Koffee with Karan- Season 4 an international flavour, Karan Johar has roped in the trashy American ‘Good-for-Nothin’ Socialite, Paris Hilton for his show. Wonder why Paris? Couldn’t he get anyone better or is it that Karan Johar is enamoured by Paris Hilton? On the other hand Simi Garewal managed to interview the biggest pop star – Lady Gaga!

Anyone who’s seen Paris Hilton on any late night chat shows in the US knows she can’t string two interesting words together to save her life, and does little but giggle in a breathy teenager’s voice. What could have possibly made K Jo think that she was a good choice of guest on his show? If this were Meryl Streep or Matt Damon coming to India or even pop-star Akon then Karan Johar would have been able to claim a massive scoop in getting an interview with them. Why is he rolling out the red carpet for someone as boring as Paris Hilton? He’s gone nuts!
