Kalki’s Top 5 Indian Looks

 

kalki's best indian looks

Actress Kalki Koechlin is not your regular mainstream Bollywood actress. It’s safe to say that she has broken the mould of typical starlets who are often reduced to mere pretty props in big budget films — the hero’s sidekick on his adventures. How so? Well, here’s a young actress who can play a  prostitute in her debut indie movie Dev D. with as much ease as she can portray a high maintenance girlfriend in a mainstream flick like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Add to that how she is always using her stardom to support pressing women’s issues in society, and you have an actress who is more than just her designer wardrobe and item songs. You can always trust Ms. Koechlin to keep things interesting. And that’s exactly what makes her tick.

The same can be said about her style as well. Hipster cool just about sums up her repertoire and she is always known to add an individual twist to everything she dons. While we know all about her love for upcoming Indian designers, especially Nimish Shah of Shift, and her penchant for experimental western silhouettes, we decided to spotlight her traditional wear choices instead. One thing is certain — her style isn’t boring!

White Wonder

Kalki looks ethereal in this white Manish Malhotra floor length number, but it’s clear to see she consciously stayed away from the heavily embellished anarkalis the veteran designer is generally associated with. Minimalistic chic is the way to go.

Black Beauty

When it comes to Indian designers, this actress of French descent has a strong affinity for all things Sabyasachi. Not many can pull off this overwhelming lehenga with its floor length top but Kalki manages to sail through effortlessly. Learn from her and when mixing several elements be sure to keep your jewelry and make-up minimal.

Luxemi Pick: Our Black and Gold Benares Print Lehenga by Mallika Mathur mirrors the same aesthetic of this Sabyasachi stunner.

 

Indian Punk

This Nikhil Thampi saree gives the six-yard stunner a punk update and Kalki does ample justice to it. We love this look right down to the last details — the cinched belt, offbeat brooches and kathakali print. (Read more on sprucing up a sari here).

Luxemi Pick: Wear this Gold Sequined Saree with our Black Brocade Blouse by Wild Orchid and a black petticoat.

Color Burst

This Laila Motwane lehenga, which Kalki wore for her wedding festivities, is as girly as it gets for her. We love the mix mash of colors — so fresh and vibrant!

Luxemi Pick: This Scarlet and Purple Lehenga with Gota Work by Laila Motwane is as close as it gets to Kalki’s bridal ensemble of choice.

 

Red Alert

Kalki’s all-red asymmetrical kurta and churidar makes a fuss-free statement. It’s a causal look she wears pretty effortlessly. It’s perfect for a mehndi function or festive dinner affair. Team it with a color blocked clutch for added impact.

5 Indian Designers To Watch Out For

5 Indian Designers To Watch Out For

L to R: Ridhi Mehra, Sougat Paul, Papa Don’t Preach, Frou Frou and Ikai

We aren’t going to lie, we love ourselves some beautiful creations by veterans like Manish Malhotra, Tarun Tahiliani or Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla — but we also believe in keeping our eyes on the newbies who foray into the industry. One of them could very well be the next Sabyasachi, right? As the industry opens its doors to embrace upcoming designers, it’s exciting to see the burst of talent out there. These new entrants aren’t afraid of pushing the envelope, have interesting stories to tell and are quickly creating a signature identity to reckon with. This week, we turn the spotlight on 5 particularly noteworthy ones who have caught our eye.

Frou Frou by Archana Rao

Archana Rao won the 2012-13 Vogue India Fashion Fund award, so naturally, there’s no ignoring her. Launched in 2011, the label thrives on minimalistic, understated and contemporary designs, reminiscent of an era gone by. Be it her western ensembles or Indian renditions, Rao’s efficient creations are tailor-made for the woman who prefers making a statement with subtly in a sea of OTT sartorial choices.

Ridhi Mehra 

5 Indian Designers To Watch Out For

Delhi-based designer, Ridhi Mehra, has created quite the splash ever since her debut in 2012.

5 Ways To Spice Up A Sari

 

Sprucing up a conventional saree

Sari: Neeru Kumar, Jewelry: Luxemi

Elegant, versatile and always event-appropriate, saris are all that and more. As much as we love our six yard desi wear staple, we can’t help but feel that wearing them the same ’ol way can get monotonous at times. That’s why we dug around to bring you five exciting ways to amp up your sari looks. From simple spruces to plain edgy, pick the style that best suits your personality. Rest assured, boring will be wiped out from your sartorial vocabulary once you adopt one of these ingenious styling suggestions.

Cinch it with a belt

Sprucing up a conventional saree

For those who would rather not go overboard with the experimentation, adding a belt is the easiest way to spruce a sari. Take your pick between a traditional kamarbandh and an edgy western-looking belt, depending on the sari in question. What’s more, apart from being wildly chic, this style also creates the illusion of a narrower waist.

Try a different drape

Sprucing up a conventional saree

The regular pallu drape can sometimes be yawn inducing, don’t you agree? So why take that route when there are so many more interesting drapes you can have fun with. Wrap your pallu around your neck instead of throwing it over your shoulder or bring it to the front and pin it on the other shoulder. The sky is the limit when it comes to draping!

Add a jacket or cape

Sprucing up a conventional saree

Sonam Kapoor and Anamika Khanna have collectively made this the most preferred way to add a contemporary twist to a traditional sari. The buzz created by Ms Kapoor’s cape sari worn on the Cannes red carpet this year indeed bears testimony to the fact. So if you’re wearing a heavily embellished sari, throw a sheer cape over it. An embroidered jacket over a simple chiffon sari is also a good way to go.

Skip the old school blouse

Sprucing up a conventional saree

Play around with your blouse to give an old sari an instant update. From a long corset blouse, Bengali style full-sleeved version, cropped jacket blouse, asymmetrical hemline blouse or one with interesting back detailing, there are so many options to choose from.

Wear the pants

Sprucing up a conventional saree

Take this inspired styling idea from runway to reality at your next desi soiree. Who needs a petticoat when you can wear pants instead! Take a cue from some of our favourite gen-next designers and team your sari with churidaars, wide legged trousers or even skinny jeans!  While you’re at it, slip into sneakers for a fitting sporty luxe avatar. Are you game?

Get The Look: Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt in Vogue

Vogue India, September 2012

Bollywood’s newest entrant, 21-year-old Alia Bhatt, hasn’t just wowed critics with her acting credentials but has also quickly climbed fashion charts to become a celebrity style favorite in a short time. Considering she was groomed by Karan Johar and that her first magazine cover was Vogue’s September 2012 issue, did you really think it would be any other way?! We love this spunky young gun’s no-holds-barred attitude and fuss-free approach to fashion — she knows she’s a looker but doesn’t try too hard to hog the limelight — and that is exactly what makes her a winner in our books. Here’s how you can snag her style in three simple ways!

Color Crush

Alia Bhatt in bright colors

When in doubt, wear a statement color! At least that’s what Bhatt swears by. She doesn’t seem to be one to go overboard with prints; instead keeps it simple in bright solid colors for utterly fuss-free looks. Throw on statement accessories to complete your outfit when opting for something similar.

Luxemi Pick: Dusty Pink Mukesh Saree with Bronze Feather Border

 

Crop It Like It’s Hot  

Alia Bhatt in crop tops

This newbie shed oodles of weight for her Bollywood foray so it’s no surprise that Ms. Bhatt has taken to flaunting her freshly toned midriff in a smattering of crop tops. Whenever she turns to them, she makes sure to maintain a delicious balance between neon pops and netural hues.

Luxemi crop top

Luxemi Pick: Gold Stretch Satin Blouse with Embellished Neckline by Kavita Bhartia

 

Layering Love

Alia Bhatt in layered indian wear

Bhatt’s petite frame demands that she add more dimension to her looks, which is why she is often spotted in layered Indian wear — and that, more often than not, translates into dhoti pants with a kurta and vest.

Luxemi Pick: Coral Red Tie Front Jacket Salwar with Floral Embroidery

What To Pack For An Indian Wedding

Packing for an Indian wedding

The Great Indian Wedding stands for fun, frolic, festivity and fashion. And as picture-perfect every frame looks once the celebrations have come to a close, only we women know how much planning and prepping goes into looking the way we do. Packing for an Indian wedding is no mean feat and we bet you’d second that. So as we gear up to dive right into the wedding season, we present a handy checklist of all that your suitcase(s) needs to hold!

Occasion appropriate outfits

It’s not as simple as packing two dresses and heels to match. Celebrations are generally spread across 2-3 days and involve a host of events. It’s best to keep your looks for each as varied as possible — after all, no one should accuse you of being sartorially boring! For instance, a flirty sharara is perfect for a mehendi while a lehenga fits the bill for a sangeet. Opt for a traditional suit for the pheras and change into a smart sari for the reception. It’s best to plan well in advance and make sure you discuss your sartorial choices with friends and family who are attending too.

Packing for an Indian wedding 

A back up outfit

You never know what will go down once you reach the wedding venue. A tear in your lehenga or a forgotten blouse that renders your new sari useless are common mishaps. Hence it’s always best to carry a spare outfit to avoid such damsel-in-distress moments.

Bling Bling

An Indian wedding without a blinding display of jewelry? That doesn’t sound right! Be sure to pack some stunning baubles to match your ensembles. Jhumkis, maang tikkas and hand harnesses are au courant favorites.

Packing for an Indian wedding

Mix, match and play around for functions like the sangeet, mehindi and cocktail. However it’s best to slip on a diamond or kundan set for the reception and pheras. And don’t forget to carry a selection of clutches to complement your attire.

Packing for an Indian wedding

Comfortable footwear

We all know how easy (or not!) it is to walk around in a sari. And 6-inch stilettos, especially if you’re not used to them, isn’t going to make the task easier. Embellished wedges or flats are a more sensible way to go.

A Fix-It Kit

It takes a lot to hold that sari, chic bun or lehenga dupatta together. So make sure you pack ample safety pins, bobby pins, a pair of scissors and a needle and thread. Double-sided tape is a savior to keep that plunging blouse or maang tikka in place while band-aid is a must if you’re breaking in new shoes! If you borrow from us, we’ll send over a Luxe Pack, which contains bindis, safety pins and a beautiful saree bag for you to keep.

Hair styling products and make up

Overslept (blame it on those shots) and now you’re running late for the morning function? A simple blowout with soft curls or a messy yet chic top knot is a fail-safe hair do. Also, make it a point to coordinate with your friends before you pack hair styling appliances like a hair iron, hair dryer or curling tongs and designate who should carry what. As for your make up, turn to smoky eyes and bright lips for a night event and keep it fresh and dewy for a day function.

Pack right

Now that you’ve gathered all the things you need, make sure you pack them in an organized fashion. Preparing a list with details of each look will keep any last minute confusion at bay. Pack function wise. That way you’re less likely to forget something. Designate separate cloth bags to each outfit to avoid them getting entangled, taking on the color of another piece or just getting ruined in general.

Hits And Misses At IIFA 2014

We’re suckers for red carpets, but you probably know that by. After all, there’s nothing a fashion lover looks forward to more than a chic red carpet sighting — a proclaimed ‘style icon’ actually living up to the title she has been bestowed with. So we decided to turn the spotlight on the hits and misses from India’s annual destination award ceremony, IIFA Awards, held at Tampa Bay this year.

IIFA red carpet

Bollywood’s top three leading ladies were easily our favourite red carpet hits too. Deepika Padukone, it seems, can do no wrong. She looked refreshingly beautiful in her red Zuhair Murad gown offset by berry lips. Moving on to one of our favorite desi girls, Priyanka Chopra. The US could well be called her second home (what with her booming music career here, and all that), so there was added pressure on Piggy Chops to nail the perfect look. And disappoint, she did not. She was a vision in that Monique Lhuillier stunner — elegant and simple but definitely not boring. Kareena Kapoor stepped out of her comfort zone with her daring Armani number, and for that, we give her extra props. And it helps that she always has her dashing prince for arm candy.

IIFA red carpet

Dia Mirza was another favourite. After all, how can we fault a winning Sabyasachi creation? To her credit, the actress wears the floor length anarkali well too. Aditi Rao Hydari, another rising style icon, did ample justice to her vintage look in Gauri & Nainika.

IIFA red carpetAnd then there were those who left us a tad disappointed. Richa Chadda’s Falguni & Shane Peacock sheer gown just just didn’t work. Don’t get us wrong — we’re all for flashing a little skin and some experimentation but something was seriously amiss with her look. Parineeti Chopra’s Nikhil Thampi outfit may have been perfect on paper (you should know that we are still lusting over Thampi’s LFW collection), but it did not translate as well as Chopra and her stylist would have hoped. And then there was Kalki. There are many looks that this hipster actress can work, but her Gaurav Gupta ensemble was not one of them. We have to say that its overwhelming silhouette left us pretty underwhelmed!

So, while we spotted our fair share of ‘yays’ and ‘nays’, we couldn’t help but notice that the styling, in general, was safe and sometimes bordering on uninspiring this time. Award season fatigue, perhaps?

Nonetheless, tell us about your favourite IIFA looks in the comment box below!

Celebrity Wedding Planner Candice Pereira On Styling Your Wedding

img_31172

As brides begin to get increasingly involved in their own wedding preps, stylized weddings — one with a coherent theme, motif or color running through all the functions is fast gaining momentum. So, we roped in Mumbai-based Candice Pereira of Marry Me — The Wedding Planners, to help you style your weddings with inimitable charm. We say, read on first and thank us later! Wink wink.

More and more brides are opting for a coherent style running through the entire wedding — from outfits and invites to decor. What’s your take on this?

When designing and planning for your wedding, it’s great to pick one element to run through your events. This binds the whole celebration together! The first glimpse would likely be on your save the dates and invites which set the tone for the wedding and what’s to come. Then of course, you move on to the decor, stationery, entertainment, cake design, food, cocktails, gifts, clothes, lighting, ceremony details, mehendi design and so on.

How would you suggest brides go about styling their wedding? How should she narrow down on one style?

First think about the kind of wedding you envision or what your dream wedding would be like. Think about things you, as a couple, love as well as your favorite colors. Then with all this in mind, you can move on to picking your venues. Your venue should lend itself to the look of the wedding, so that it all fits together seamlessly.

What are some of the most common styles that seem to be popular at the moment?

Every bride wants to do something different. We have had brides who have picked a certain motif which was used everywhere from her sari, to her cake, lighting and gift boxes with personalized ribbon. Anything vintage-inspired is a favorite with me! Other than that, one can also opt for a colorful ‘mela’ style set up, Great Gatsby, old school English charm. You could also pick a print — Aztec, chevron, ikat — and tie that in with every aspect of your wedding. Innovative use of pearls promises an elegant celebration as well.

Tell us about some of the most interesting wedding styles you’ve worked on recently?

We recently personalized table numbers for a guest’s sit-down dinner. Every number was related to a fact you didn’t know about the couple. These was very interesting for guests to read and it ended up being great conversation points. We also recently had another bride, whose beautiful wedding sari border (a very unique weave) was incorporated everywhere — right from her stationery to her wedding cake.

How much is too much?

Its never too much if it’s done in a subtle and tasteful manner. The little details are what guests notice and will remember.

Snag Jacqueline Fernandez’s Easy Chic Style

Jacqueline Fernandez in Femina

Jacqueline Fernandez, Femina

Of all the foreign beauties that have recently made Bollywood their home, Jacqueline Fernandez is easily one of our favorites. And no, we aren’t saying so because of the PYT’s movie choices. The only thing we have eyes for are her sartorial choices and it seems like this doe-eyed beauty can do no wrong. Her repertoire clearly proves that she’s not afraid of taking fashion risks and can make just about any look her own. That coupled with her disarming smile and prominent pout ensures that she ticks all the right boxes with her style file every single time. We decode this stylista’s looks and show you how to snag her style.

Red Alert

acqueline Fernandez wears red

One look at her Indian wear choices and it’s clear that the Sri Lankan expat has a soft spot for shades of red — be it siren red lehengas or maroon saris and salwars. And why shouldn’t she? The color indeed is very becoming on her and her flawless complexion. Get a similar look with our Scarlett Saree with Rich Gold Border cinched with a belt.

Pop of Prints

acqueline Fernandez wears prints

Fernandez is not one to shy away from a generous smattering of prints either. From Surendri’s pac-man and fish motifs and Moschino’s playful prints to more demure florals, she sports them all with effortless ease. Luxemi’s Painted Saree with Zari Border by Satya Paul will allow you to channel her inimitable je nai se quoi as well.

Desi with a difference

Jacqueline Fernandez wears different cuts

What stands out is Fernandez’s affinity towards offbeat Indian silhouettes. The been-there-done-that same ‘ol styles are definitely not for her. You’ll always find a statement element on her; be it a tulip hemline, sharara pants or asymmetrical cuts. Luckily for you, this Orange Salwar with Asymmetrical Hem by Nikasha is quite similar to what the starlet prefers!

Top of the Crop

acqueline Fernandez wears crop tops

Crop tops, anyone? Our bet is that this Bollywood belle will be game for one (or many). She has been seen wearing midriff bearing tops on more than one occasion after all. And with fab abs like hers, can you blame her? You too can flaunt your toned abs courtesy our Bronze V Neck Stretch Satin Blouse by Kavita Bhartia.
