High Heel Celebrities: The Plunging Neckline – Charlize Theron and Deepika Padukone

Charlize Theron and Deepika Padukone are going head to head in my battle of the plunging neckline. A huge trend for 2016, popping up on the runways, bridal gowns and the red carpet. Got to say with their stunning bodies, these two fashion icons are working it!

Styling wise, both ladies did the updo and long chain, which works with the mermaid silhouette. However, I’m giving my vote to Theron because she rocked this outfit way back in February. Also compared to Padukone, Charlize’s softer look was more striking and effortless on the red carpet. Got a favourite?

High Heel Celebrities: Crushing on Athiya Shetty’s Monsoon Hues

Nothing matches glorious gloomy, rainy days better than Athiya Shetty’s monsoon hued wardrobe. I’ve had my eye on the long-limbed rising star and I’m crushing on everything she wears. Thanks to stylist Ami Patel, Athiya’s girl next door style has been elevated with classic stand out pieces that would look stunning on any girl. Glamorous, elegant and all in the shades of monsoon’s first shower. Here is a look at my favourite Athiya Shetty outfits.

Shoe Bites: Top 5 Positive Steps towards Happiness

Just turn on the TV nowadays and everything from the news to the series we watch are either violent, cynical or negative in nature. Things like this can effect a society as a whole, the more we’re exposed to a certain way of thinking the more we behave that way. The only ones who can change that is ourselves. Finding the positivity isn’t as hard as you may think. It’s the single-handed thing that will help pivot a day from bad to good, or on those horrible days – turn anguish into relief.

Positivity is so important as it brings you closer to your natural state – which is a happy shiny person. The fundamentals of happiness in my opinion are – 1.

Keeping that in mind here are my top 5 things to start you on your positivity journey towards happiness.

I’ve been so inspired by Pantone’s colours of the year recently, that I thought it would be great to do a recurring post inspired by colour. Any design student will tell you that after inspiration hits…the most amazing products, clothes, interior spaces etc. all come together from first making a mood board. It is essentially a board filled with pictures, quotes, textiles or colours, that focus on an overall theme.

This Monday I’m crushing on Pantone’s hottest (or should I say coolest) colour cobination – Rose Quartz and Serenity.

High Heel Celebrities: #IIFA Special Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha, Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Priyanka Chopra

IT’s IIFA TIME!! woot woot! As many of you know I’m not a huge Bollywood fan but I’m absolutely loving what stylists are doing to re-shape fashion in the Indian movie industry. The ladies are upping up their fitness regime and slipping into high fashion digs – Bollywood has never looked this good!

Shoe Bites: Epic Game of Thrones Style

Social meetings, dinner out with the boyfriend or even drinks with the girls have to be re-scheduled because it’s Game of Thrones night. It’s on every Tuesday here in India and nothing  comes between me and GOT. This love affair with the show doesn’t seem to be dying down and I kind of want to step up my ‘thonesy game’ – just watching isn’t enough.

The women in Game of Thrones have the coolest off-kilter style that any midieval fashionista loves. While I don’t want to look like a walking costume party, I do want to incorporate some dragon/armour pieces into my everyday wardrobe. Here are my top picks to achieve that thronesy style.

House Targaryen

The Dothrakhi khaki days are behind her and  I much prefer the new polished breaker-of-chains Daenerys. Clean lines, strong silhouettes and metallic jewelry, that is the dragon queen’s style. Opt for statement reptile-esque jewelry pieces paired minimalist clothing to get her look.

High Heel Celebrities: Amber Heard, Bella Hadid and Rita Ora

The iconic Jessica Rabbit dress is the ultimate in sex appeal and many celebrities have tried to ape that look – some were successful and some looked like Bella Hadid.

Celebrity #1: Bella Hadid

Wearing: Custom Alexandre Vauthier gown

Amber Heard and Bella Hadid wore similar dresses with one major difference – the amount of skin on show. Heard in that Ralph Lauren silk charmeuse dress with gorgeous “natural” looking hair was a knockout. Bella however was a different story, I barely managed to find a picture that wasn’t cringe worthy. Although she was wearing an attached matching body suit (red dental floss) underneath, at some angles a little too much Bella was on display. Yes, she is super smouldering, but the whole look was too contrived. I get it.. everyone wants to make a splash at Cannes, but I much prefer Aishwarya Rai’s purple lipstick fiasco to this walking (and posing) wardrobe malfunction.
