In Chanel again - Kirsten Dunst.

Kirsten Dunst wore another Chanel Spring white in Istanbul, this time around a stunning concoction of lace, beads and a yummy tulle bow.

She also did wayyy better in the shoe department, pairing the beautiful dress with silver Mary janes. Remember her nearly there appearance in Chanel couture at Cannes?

Kirsten completed her look by carrying a black clutch and accented the white dress with red lips.

In Purple - Bipasha Basu & Neelam Kothari.

At the Kolestint promotion, it was a Purple dress memo for Bipasha. Aside from the fact that we love the color, the look had nothing to get excited about.

The fit of the dress seemed a size smaller; the wrap/bandage satin one shoulder dress has been done to death in Bebes and Karen Millens and BCBGs by Bollywood, Bipasha needs to rest that trend. The gunmetal heels failed to bring any upgrade to the look either.

Neelam attended the Kashish Film Awards in a Purple and hot pink dress which she paired with nude heels, although the look had nothing new to write home about, Neelam wore it well and looked good.

LBD Fail! Raveena Tandon.

The former actress attended the Double Dhamal event in a one shouldered black dress and the look is a perfect example of how bad styling can ruin an otherwise decent appearance.

The silhouette did not look too bad on her, but the pagenty hair, the silver sandals and silver drop earrings totally killed the look for me. A sleek pony tail/ pulled back hair, subtle make up ( read less filmy) and simple black pumps would have saved this look from being a FAIL.

Model Watch! Mashoom Singha & Saena Shaikh.

Models Mashoom and Saina attended the Reveilo bash in Mumbai. As far as the off duty, at party sightings were concerned, both were nearly there looks.

Mashoom wore a grey tunic with tangerine belt and tan heels, the combination, in theory had me so excited, but the pairing was off with the length of the tunic and the way the belt was tied.. The tunic a tad bit longer and a well tied belt would have had me singing a different tune.

Saena opted for a printed black dress and red lips; both looked great on her, but brought it down many notches by her not so exciting footwear choice. A pair of pumps, flats or ankle booties and this would have been a winner.

PS: Saena is wearing the ' Dandy Dash Ruffle dress' from FCUK which was also spotted on Achla Sachdev earlier.

Fabulous in Salwar! Juhi Chawla.

How beautiful does Juhi look in this pale green Salwar and off white Kameez!

I think this is the best we have seen her in a really long time and I love it.

Celeb Street Style - Gwen Stefani.

I mean, Gwen Stefani has to have a bad day right? Bad dress day/Bad hair day or Bad make up day? Doesn't look like it.

Gwen was spotted rocking in two different street styles, one in a white top and plaid wrap pants and the other in a somewhat bohemian chic style in a printed maxi skirt, white tank and denim jacket.

She had both the looks pat on, most would have opted for a fitted white tank to balance the voluminous wrap pants, but on Gwen the loose fitting white t worked just the same.


Gwen is carrying a Louis Vuitton Monogram Aviator Bag.

Wearing Prints - Jennifer Love Hewitt & Kangna Ranaut.

It was brilliant summer ready printed dresses for Jennifer and Kangna, in their last sightings.

Jennifer wore a Victoria's secret strapless maxi dress in white and blue, with tiers at the bust and hem. She kept the rest of her look in a summer friendly way - tied up hair and sunglasses. The look would have been a FAB, had it not been for the very disappointing choice of Converse shoes with the very feminine dress.

Kangna looked equally summer calling and fresh in her Marc Jacob-esque (the white and blue apple print dress) dress which she wore off the shoulder. I love that Kangna lets her natural hair be, and don't confirm to the bollywood norm of straight hair. 

Kangna carried a mini Birkin while Jennifer carried a Loius Vuitton bag.

In Prabal Gurung - Molly Sims.

At the World Ocean Day, Molly Sims looked very fetching in a Prabal Gurung dress.

The dress had a bow bust and a fitted waist for the most delish details. Molly let the dress work on its own, pairing it with nude heels, black clutch and soft, wavy hair.

Aside from how great Molly looked, have you checked out the Prabal for J Crew collection to see the most fabulous bow blouses? I'm in love with all of them and had a tough time making up my mind on the one that I wanted.

Love is the word people, Love.

Celeb Travel Style - Charlize Theron & Fergie.

Turning the style quotient at the airports were Charlize and Fergie, giving us some notable travel style tales.

Charlize's travel gear had black tights, grey T shirt and a black leather jacket which she paired with nude booties from Louboutins and Nude bag by Prada. She kept the look unfussy and sleek in a low pony tail and completed the look with sun glasses.

Fergie’s travel style was envy inspiring, in a printed T shirt and skinny denims combo which she wore along with a red leather jacket.  She finished the look with luxe accessories - bag from Hermes and studded heels from Christian Louboutin.

Fergie was wearing a printed T shirt from Balmain.

Urban Chic! Gwyneth Paltrow.

The stylish Gwyneth Paltrow gave us another great look in her unerring - minimalistic -chic fashion.

Dressed in an ivory shirt, linen jacket and khaki skinny cargos combo, Gwyneth worked a great separates look, pairing the outfit with tan Givenchy heels.  Of late, she has mostly been spotted in dresses and stunning heels and this is a break from those, one that’s equally trending, never the less.


Wearing Prints - Kittu Gidwani, Pooja Bedi & Tisca Chopra.

At the Aereopagus Spa launch, many showed up wearing prints, most noteworthy being Kittu, Pooja and Tisca. Kittu wore a saffron print dress and nude heels, Pooja opted for a white floral dress while Tisca went with a floral print jumpsuit.

My least favourite being Pooja for the unfortunate choice of foot wear and bag, I quite liked Kittu's look although very simple, the color was yummy and she wore the dress well. Not too kicked about the bag choice, again.

As for Tisca, I liked the pulled back hair and addition of Tangerine heels ( First a Fab sari look, followed by office chic in white and blue, now this, I like that she likes to change up things) but something about the prints just seemed overwhelming.

Celeb Street Style - AnnaLynne McCord.

You know how much we love a celeb who can dress stellar when she is off duty. AnnaLynne McCord has been spotted all over NY , bringing her A game to casual street style. From boho to retro and contemporary, Ms.McCord has everything under control, even stylishly repeating some accessories..

Opting for mostly high street labels, AnnaLynn managed to work each of this looks thanks to her clever pairing of footwear, complementing accessories and stylish separates.

Left - Alice + Olivia blue dress, yellow belt, Ray Ban sun glasses, Studded oxford shoes and Miu Miu hobo bag.
Second Left - Calvin Klein gold dusted skinny pants, Mocha leather Jacket, Fedora, Christian Louboutin shoes and Miu Miu hobo bag.
Right - Floral top, flared denims and Miu Miu hobo.

Left - School girl inspired look, white shirt, blue skirt from Alice + Olivia, striped tie, nude cardigan, Miu Miu bag and Aldo 'Craver' heels.
Right - Alice + Olivia white blazer, white tank top, blue denim shorts, red flats, red beads, Ray Ban Sunnies and Miu Miu Bag.
Third - Grey maxi dress, flip flops, Ray Ban sun glasses and Miu Miu leather hobo bag.

Left  - Retro inspired look - blue denim shirt knotted at waist, flared white jeans, Aldo heels, stacked beaded necklace and Miu Miu bag.
Right- Alice + Olivia dress, Christian louboutin heels, multi strands of beads.

I dig all her looks and how she mixed up her separates by adding spot on accessories and creating looks that would make any fashionista proud.

One Girl - Two looks. Fergie.

Fergie seemed to have been in a BCBG phase in the last two weeks, giving us two fabulous looks from BCBG Max Azria.

At the Billboard Music Awards 2011, she wore an edgy dress with bandage and studs details, and looked luminous in a yellow BCBG gown at the fifi Awards.

I loved both her appearances; Fergie rocked the dramatic dress with tons of smouldering attitude with perfect attitudes match. She carried an Alexander McQueen tassel clutch and black pumps. For the second look, the softer make up and feminine hair worked along with the blue clutch against the cheery yellow.

A short(s) Story - Sophie Choudry.

At the launch of Aereopagus Spa Launch, Sophie attended the event in a printed bow blouse and dusted pink shorts.

She paired the outfit with off white wedges and 'D bag' by TOD's. I think Sophie looked good, the tan shade of the bag nicely tying up the look.

Doing Floral! Asin & Divya Dutta.

I was yet to meet a floral that I didn't like, all this season. Till I saw Asin's and Divya's take on floral, that is.

Asin wore a floral skirt to the 'Ready' promotion, which she paired with white top and black pumps. The white top really was an odd choice - it was unflattering on Asin, the color and the design along with the wide black band of the skirt doing nothing for the lovely actress. Now, a black/white top with structured shoulder, with an open neck and a thinner band and we would sing a different tune.

Divya's black accessories weighed down the whole look, wasn't a fan of those sleeves on her either.

Asin - now running

In Chanel - Kirsten Dunst.

Kirsten Dunst dazzled in an Ivory Chanel Resort 2012 attending the label's Pre - Fall presentation on Istanbul.

She worked the bell sleeved dress with retro inspired curls, Chanel cuff and red lips. I think she looked great and it’s one more look well done to her credit.

Who wore it better - Jordana Brewster vs. Nicioe Richie.

Jordana Brewster was sported rocking summer style in a lazy day dress, flat sandals and sunnies. The below the knee sleeveless dress was also worn by Nicole Richie earlier.

Do you have a favourite?

I think Nicole and Jordana wore it well in their own style; Nicole rocked the bangs, sandals and bright bag look while Jordana looked great too.

The dress is Winter Kate.

Black and White Style - First Ladies's way! Carla Bruni & Michelle Obama.

France's first Lady and expectant mom-to be Carla Bruni - Sarkozy and US's First Lady Michelle Obama are both noted fashionistas, Carla known for her classic style and Michelle for her non confirmed and chic sense of style.

Both ladies wore a combination of Black and White outfits on their recent outings, Carla during the G8 Summit in Deauville, France and Michelle for a visit to Oxford during her recent visit to UK.

Carla wore a tweed white dress and a tweed black coat from Chanel, which she paired with Black Louboutin kitten heels. Michelle, in her true style opted for Alexander McQueen top from the Resort 2011 collection, which she paired with black cropped pants and white and gold dual strap belt by McQueen.

Carla looked lovely, but the combination of McQueen and Michelle was too good to beat, although I couldn’t find pictures of how the back of the white tunic looked on her.

What do you think?
