Julianne Moore_GivenchyAraya Hargate_Ralph n Russo5682158cbDoutzen Kross_Brandon MaxwellBeautiful and talented people (and some brand ambassadresses) are convening at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival to celebrate movies with glamorous red carpet walks and even more glamorous parties. And it is also the time for ‘frock-watchers’ to judge, which star ‘killed it’ and which ones ‘f*#ked up’. It is a 12-days long red-carpet fashion gazing.

Mallika Sherawat_Georges ChakraKirsten Dunst_GucciGuess what, Mallika Sherwat is already there and was in Georges Chakra gown that was rather tame for her. She is there for premier of her movie – Time Raiders. The biggies from Hollywood are already in Cannes and were at the premiere of Woody Allen’s Cafe Society. Guess what trended on the red carpet? Well snakes and octopus! Julianne Moore looked sexy in a Givenchy gown embellished with Cobras and Araya Hargate donned a voluminous Ralph and Russo gown with Octopus tentacles waiting to suck you in. Blake Lively looked haute in Versace gown and her baby bump showed.

Bella Hadid_Dior_PhotoCallDaytime photo calls are more exciting than evening red carpet gala because at photo calls stars show more of their personal style. Like Kristen Stewart who recently broke up with her Parisian lesbionic DJ girlfriend is in Cannes too.  Instead of dressing up in some fancy frilly gown, she chose a Chanel cropped tight white tee shirt that clung to her boobs, befitting her sexual identity of late.

PZ Has ‘GoodEnough’ Reasons To Be Back In LA

Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia mess is seemingly heading nowhere. I know I will yet again get loads of flak from certain sections for writing this but then you gotta do what you gotta do. So PZ got permission to flyback to Los Angeles from Mumbai Police. 4th of July is a big thing in America and why should Preity miss it when her boyfriend, friends and family are in the US.

CRICKET-IND-BCCI-IPLGene Goodenough, the supposed boyfriend of Zinta was there at the Wankhade on the fateful day but is in no mood to come to India as an eyewitness. Cops are still trying. Among other witnesses presented by PZ – her makeup man – Jai Kanojia really won’t be taken seriously as an impartial witness. By the way I was pretty amused to discover that Preity took her makeup man during the matches. Really you need touch-up in a stadium???

Preity-Zinta-GunPreity Zinta has a childhood buddy who is pretty loaded, who too is in LA. He’s got some aura and he is Akash Aurora. This buddy is a pillar of strength for PZ and he made a killing during IPL 2 when he got the Digital Rights of the season for peanuts for his then Dubai based company-Netlink. Akash Aurora also came in as a sponsor for PZ’s team – Kings XI but then never paid up. Aurora did not really had a liking for Ness Wadia even when Preity was seeing Ness.

So when mommy, brother, boyfriend and chuddy-buddy are all in Los Angeles it’s natural that Preity Zinta will find LA a more familiar ground. Ness Wadia meanwhile is sticking to his guns and saying allegations made by Zinta are false. Seems facts will take time to unfurl. Ohhh…I just wish PZ doesn’t go the Mallika Sherawat way who god-knows does what in LA but is perennially there and is gatecrashing A-list parties and then Tweeting her selfies with Hollywood Stars. Mallika has a very rich ‘sugar-daddy’ so she’s having a ball in Beverly Hills. Even Zinta got herself clicked with Tom Cruise and buddy Akash Aurora. 



What’s Bollywood’s Style-Quotient @ Cannes 2013?

CannesFestival66Posterart590full01Sonam Kapoor_Nath UtaaroCannes 2013 is on and this year the festival will see the largest contingent from Bollywood as Cannes is celebrating 100 years of Indian Cinema. Bollywood stars who have already landed at the French Riviera are Amitabh Bachchan as the 12-Day Cannes Film Festival opened with the screening of The Great Gatsby, Vidya Balan who is part of the illustrious jury, the lovely Frieda Pinto and Sonam Kapoor who is there as one of the Brand Ambassadress for L’Oreal.

vidya-balan-in-cannes1vidya-balan-cannes-2013-sabyasachi-the-great-gatsby-screening_2Cannes Film Festival is keenly watched by fashionistas to dwell over the style quotient of divas from the celluloid. Vidya Cristian Mungiu, Naomi Kawase, Christoph Waltz, Vidya Balan, Daniel Auteuil, Nicole Kidman, Steven Spielberg, Ang Lee,Lynne RamsayBalan made three appearances, all in traditional Indian wear by Sabyasachi Mukherjee – one in a maroon lehenga (I particularly loved the simple Choli bereft of any gaudy embellishment), another in a lovely ivory saree paired with a brown blouse with gold embroidery on the shoulders and a final one in a peach coloured lehenga-styled in Mughal regality for the Gatsby screening. The final look was a little OTT for me.

Amitabh Bachchanamitabh bachchan_bling_cannes 2013Big B made a couple of appearances. The sporty/safari jacket that Bachchan donned was out of place. Rest of the Gatsby team were dressed up in greys and blacks. Bachchan’s striped blue Safari jacket and white pants and shoes did not compliment his natural style. And gawd that belt at the waist was a disaster. At The Great Gatsby screening Amitabh Bachchan was again the odd one out in his shimmering BLINGY jacket. Could have gone for a Bandhgala with sober embellishment if he wanted BLING.

Sonam Kapoor_Nose Ringsonam kapoor_cannes 2013sonam_freida_cannes 2013Sonam Kapoor please apna Nath utaar do. (No pun intended! Nath Utaarna also means losing virginity, which I am sure Sonam’s done with.) Our stylish diva too opted for an off-white saree (Anamika I think) with a lattice work full-sleeve jacket for Gatsby screening but that huge nose ring was definitely an eye sore. Another appearance in a scalloped  Anamika Khanna jacket with lattice work paired over high-waist pants was chic. She was also spotted with Frieda Pinto in a black and grey ensemble was nice too but I have my reservations over wether those gold danglers went with the look.

mallika sherawat_cannes 2013Oh yes Mallika Sherawat too was there at The Great Gatsby screening in an yellowish-orange sleeveless gown. Thank god there wasn’t any slits or sheerness or cleavage revealing elements in her ensemble.

Desperate B-Town Gals Strip-Down To Be In News

ameesha-patelVeenaMalikThe ‘Desperate B-Town Gals‘ have made stripping-down a ploy to stay relevant in Bollywood. You all had seen Ameesha Patel in those garters to announce the launch of her production house’s first film. She looked hideous rather than sexy. 

sherlyn-kamasutra-3dYou must have also seen Sherlyn Chopra doing the skin-show thingy for her MTV Splitsville show. But with Sherlyn showing skin is normal; seeing her clothed would be abnormal though. Here is the link to a video promo of her’s:

Tycoons And Their Trophy Gals

More and more business tycoons are going for ‘Trophy Girlfriends’ and splurging insane amounts on them. It is sort of becoming a trend with Desi Tycoons!

The most infamous tycoon and his trophy gal involves none other than  Mallika Sherawat. She lives in Los Angeles for the better part of the year. Mallika Sherawat has a penthouse apartment at one of the swankiest locations in Beverly Hills The Palazzo. Mallika’s two-story penthouse has a city view,  arched windows, city views, controlled elevator access (only she can use it to get to her penthouse), large private terraces and a personal swimming pool (5500 sq feet in area) with two levels a drawing, dining and kitchen below with two bedrooms above. And Roman soaking tubs. It even has an original Picasso painting. Now does Mallika earn enough to sustain such a lifestyle? The answer is a ‘NO’. The penthouse rent is paid by a NRI Tycoon based out of London and he is the richest NRI. Not only a penthouse, Mallika’s tycoon lover pays for her publicist, stylist and shopping and also allows the Haryanvi Sex Bomb the luxury of his private jet. In return Mallika has to make herself available to her billionaire lover at his beck and call, which fortunately is not very often as the tycoon needs to be very discreet.

The other business tycoon who has been smitten by the beauty of Hyderabadi lawyer cum model cum beauty queen – Vasuka Sunkavalli is from the Capital City. He had a live-in relationship for a long time with one of Delhi’s old socialite, which unceremoniously ended last year. Then this tycoon – who is in Infrastructure business had a short stint with an Afghani beauty but that too ended soon when the tycoon met Vasuki during Indian Grand Prix last year. If you still haven’t placed the man – well all I can say is that he is more known by his nick name, which is rather ‘Mousey’!

Yet another billionaire NRI is based out of London too. This man has a penchant for trophy gals half his age. In fact all the three tycoons have trophy gals who are half their ages! The London based NRI who is in mining and more is seeing Kanika Chandok and their alleged relation has costed Ms. Kanika her marriage. I had posted about her earlier. You can read it here:
