2012 Met Gala

Rachel Roy made a desippearance at the Met Gala with a surprisingly low drama quotient. Trading in whimsy for tried and true, both Roy and Solange Knowles looked perfectly lovely if staid at the event. Known for drawing out designer's whimsy and showcasing fantastical creations, the Met Gala would have been an excellent opportunity for Roy to take some risks. Ah well, she did pick up the neon and peplum trends with the gown worn by Solange, so there's that.

Do My Eyes Deceive Me?

BOTH Mukherjee sisters looking fashionable and well put-together?! Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the ground. Kajol and Tanisha attended the Dadasaheb Phalke Awards in impeccably draped, not-at-all spangly or garish, saris. Now I can't tell what Tanisha's blouse may look like, but you know what? I'm feeling generous and Tanisha nailing a look is so rare, that I'm just gonna give her the W.

Oscar the Grouch Gives Fashion Advice

I suppose this is what the result would be if everybody's favorite curmudgeon gave Sonali sartorial tips at the Lonely Planet Travel Awards. And I gotta say, taking advice from a garbage can dweller, is probably not the best idea as the result is this trash bag-esque getup. It looks as if Sonali was trying to channel Rani's olive jumpsuit style. Unfortunately for Sonali, this one is a total miss.

Gajra Wali

She may be a tad boring from time to time with her three-quarter sleeve blouses and silk saris, but one thing is undeniable. Vids rocks the desi girl look at the National Film Awards. The gajra is such a nice touch to finish off her simple style.

PR Warpath

At least that's what it seems like, na? Chitra's been everywhere lately. Here she is unveiling her Vogue India cover. I gotta say, neons are not an easy trend to wear, but she does a rather remarkable job. The pink platforms are an unexpected touch of genius. My only quibble? Lose the colored lenses. They're freaky. Y'all know my position on the colored lenses.
