Preity Zinta may be missing from Bollywood but was spotted at Milan Fashion Week last night. Is she going the ‘Sonam Kapoor’ way??? Well PZ was with Manav Gangwani, designer cum luxury biz (Infinite Luxury) entrepreneur at the Roberto Cavalli show.
Dressed in a jacket cinched at the waist over a slit-skirt, Preity Zinta looked chic. In the photograph that was taken outside Cavalli show the other girl with Manav Gangwani and Preity Zinta is Simrin Choudrie in a fur coat. The trio were heading for the Pucci show next.
So will it be ‘Fashionista in Milan’ by Preity Zinta after ‘Ishq in Paris’??? By the way what happened to ‘Ishq in Paris’? Any news about it guys???

Versace entered India with a franchise agreement with Sehgal Brothers. But the marriage did not last long and in November 2012 Versace terminated its contract with Sehgal Brothers. The arrangement soured because Sehgals couldn’t live-up to the terms of their agreement with Versace. In fact the finances of Sehgal brothers were so mismanaged that they defaulted in paying rent to DLF Emporio. What could have been more embarassing for a luxury brand that the store’s electricity supply is cut-off?
Since Versace terminated its contract with Sehgal Brothers, speculations were on that they will sign-up with Genesis Luxury or come in as a 100% subsidiary. But now through reliable sources we have discovered that Versace has finally inked the deal with Infinite Luxury.
Infinite Luxury owned by Sahiba Narang, Manav Gangwani and Rahul Kapoor is rapidly acquiring brands and growing to be a strong player in the luxury retail business. The group kicked off with introducing Roberto Cavalli and Cavalli Caffe into India. This was followed with tie-up with Italian knitwear giants – Missoni and and the brand known for its eclectic prints – Emilio Pucci. Add to that Versace and that makes Infinite Luxury holding licenses of five uber-luxe brands for India.
Well Kanika Chandok is a NRI – a Londoner who gets fancy things written about her in Indian Mags and Dubai glossies. A mother of three – Kanika Chandok has separated from her hubby – Raj Chandok and is dating a Money-Bag – Anil Aggarwal. She is a typical ‘Trophy Wife’ material who claims to be “doing something great with Pucci.” You know what great thing she did with Pucci? Well Kanika Chandok managed the launch of Pucci’s flagship store in London. But ignorant scribes write, “Sharing a close relationship with fashion house, Pucci, Kanika is currently working on exclusive collaborations with the respected label.” I sent few mails to the Pucci HQ and got a rude reply that the Label has no collaborations with the mentioned lady.
I believe that Kanika Chandok is friendly with our Desi Queen Bees and expect to see lot more of this multifaceted bag-hag in Delhi and Mumbai soon.
Well this thing is bit dated. Recently Hello Mag co-hosted a Derby affair at Mumbai’s Race Course at Mahalakshmi. Nothing great to write home about the do. The usual splattering of stale Page 3s but what caught my attention was three women wearing same outfits (with a slight variation in colour) at the do. It’s a fashion disaster. Isn’t it???
Just see the pix below: Simone Singh, Hello editrix, Ruchika Mehta and a Poorna Patel, the daughter of our Civil Aviation Minister, Praful Patel who is also the IPL’s ‘Hospitality’ Manager wore identical outfits. Seems like the ensemble was part of the invite. My learned readers of this blog enlightened me that Pria Kataria PuriI is the designer of these Pucci(sh) print kaftans (which I feel are perfect for women who want to hide unsightly bulges) with slits on the sleeve but it seems to have caught the fancy of Mumbai dollies. Anyway I always thought Delhi is way ahead when it comes to fashion!
