Satyug Gold launch party

I love the pale gold and baby pink of this two-tone sari from Manish Malhotra's "Mijwan" collection. The ivory thread embellishment pops against the pink. I'm also a big fan of the blouse style - a bit of a boatneck in front, with a traditional scoop neck in back. Excellent coverage without an ounce of dowdiness.

"Gulaab Gang" premiere

I so wish I could ban this footwear from Juhi's closet. Not all feet are meant for kohlapuri wedges. Juhi's chudidaar kurta is sacchrine-sweet. The rosettes being an obvious ode to the film, and perhaps a wink at the audience since her character is not-so-sweet. La Dixit's floor-length anarkali is fairly standard fare for the diva. A statement necklace would have been nice though, as the neckline of this one isn't mega-embellished itself.

Desipolitan has crossed over to the dark side

I'm referring to Pinterest, of course. You'll notice that I've enabled pin-it buttons on my images to help fuel your addiction to Pinterest. Additionally, I've put together a number of boards you might want to check out (all you dulhans might want to take a peek at my Shaadi Story board for a little Bolly-style wedding inspiration). I've also added an easy link to my side bar if you'd like to follow me on Pinterest.

Cheers!

More from "Men for Mijwan"

Mmes Jaya and Shabana made an ever-so chic appearance. Together, they presented such a wonderful contrast. Jaya went the chikan salwaar suit route that she often favors, and went all cream and beige. Shabana, went the total opposite route, in a boldly colorful Manish Malhotra sari. Lovely.

And I would be remiss in concluding my posts on this most worthy event without at least one photo including the men behind "Men for Mijwan". Here you go then:

Freida Pinto for Free People

While resident glam doll Priyanka is the new face of GUESS, famously laid back Freida is featured in Free People's seriously stunning print ads as well as appearing in Free People's short film "Rangeen". I think they couldn't have picked a better rep for their boho vibe than this natural beauty. Beachy waves, barely there makeup, gorgeous complexion. Freida's perfect in her latest role!

Do check out the film, by the way. It's short, sweet, and visually stunning (ahem, I'm talking about the locale, people, not Freida's hottie co-star, Thomas Bull).

"Fugly" trailer launch

Ashvini looked every bit the boho artiste at the launch of her production house's forthcoming venture. She completed her breezy look with chappals and chunky jewelry. Hell, she could've been wearing a potato sack, but she had me at analogous color. I adore the magenta-red combo - you'd think they'd clash, but they don't!
