Just another party

It’s a dry day today. It’s a Friday and it’s a dry day. Thanks a lot Maharashtra government. Don’t you have potholes to fill and streets to keep clean? This has got nothing to do with the post but since it has ruined my weekend I thought I’d spread the joy.

So Sanjay Kapoor threw a bash for his Bollywood buddies and I swear I cannot find what the occasion was. Maybe he knew beforehand that today was a dry day and decided to party well in advance. Good on you.

Karisma Kapoor

You know my thoughts on jumpsuits but do you know how I feel about jumpsuits with torn sleeves? Not very favourably. What’s the point of them? You either have sleeves or you don’t. This one would have made a great jumpsuit if it had a halter neck. Her shoes are the best part with the bright blue base. Just that I did not know that we now match our eye shadow to the bottom of our shoes. Thanks for that, Karisma.

Adhuna Akhtar

I’m not sure how I feel about leather. I think I like it in small doses as a belt or watchstrap. But an entire dress might be pushing it. How sweet of Farhan Akhtar (more on him) to match his shoes to Adhuna’s dress. Or wait, is that dress made of rexine!?

Sohail Khan

That’s a misleading message Sohail Khan’s gotten on his tee. The man does not try. At all. Not in life, fashion or work. That might actually be a good thing. One less talentless brother to deal with.

Dino Morea

Dino Morea was on kebab serving duty.


Bling ring unsettling

I recently witnessed the miracle of a cat giving birth in my drawer (long story) and somehow this is an even bigger mess.

Neha Dhupia

Neha Dhupia, like all of us, does have her moments of clarity where she looks elegant and well styled. Neha, however, like the rest of us, also has moments of utter misjudgement. Like the time Anuya had seven shots of tequila and danced to Kajra Re in a very short skirt. At her cousin’s wedding. In Satara. But we don’t talk about that.

The jumpsuit, I believe, was originally designed by a sadist as an instrument of torture. S/he loved watching people squirm in their seats holding their pee in. Then s/he tripped people as they sprinted to the loo while trying to first locate and then undo the zipper and then peel the entire garment which, by the time, was too piddle too late. And just like the other instruments of torture – the corset and stiletto – the jumpsuit too was adopted as fashion.

But I digress. Neha wore this sequined nightmare to a jewellery awards jury meet. Like there was not enough bling already. The cut is obviously not flattering and why does she have chicken wing sleeves? Sequined chicken wing. I can’t take my eyes off her hips, it’s that fixating. WHAT IS GOING ON THERE?

With that a long overdue Neha Dhupia post comes to an end. I wish I had nicer things to say. Ha.

Hold on, there’s more. At the same shindig…

Yami Gautam

Yami Gautam wore a gown in a pretty pink. The entire look of it, though, feels like something you’d wear to Hetal ben’s sangeet just to be ‘mod’.

Mahima Chaudhry

Mahima Chaudhry is suffering from Vidyabalansari-itis.
