Karolina Kurkova at the Sao Paolo Fashion Week looking a little less than perfect, which is okay if your are not on the ramp but otherwise a no no. She was never really a super skinny girl but with the cellulite and stuff, it looks kinda terrible.
I know its a little late now and Im overdosing you with Lakshmi Menon but I really cant help it, she is the new 'it' girl. Anyway here is the Givenchy campaign, a little birdy told me that she is shooting with Steven Meisel and Peter Lindberg, I assume its for Vogue Italia since these guys shoot majorly with them. We love you Lakshmi!!!
With all the black friendly vibes goin on these days in the Fashion Industry, even Givenchy joined the gang starting the show with three dark skinned girls and who else but our very own Lakshmi Menon opened the show and looking ferosh. She also did the Jean Paul Gaultier Mens Spring Summer 09.
Its that time of the year again when one starts to incessantly watch FTV to catch the new collections or log on to style.com for the latest feed. Funny how soon they come again and again and again. Especially now that the designer's are showcasing their resort collections in full force, it seems like there is no end to fashion weeks. But these are happy times as always. So to start , here is the Burberry show. I truly adore Christopher Bailey for what he has done to brand and how he continues to do it every bloody season. I'm in love with the summer trenchs and the scooped necklines of the jersey tops plus lots of cardigans in various lenghts and most of all, the mustard colour that he has used on some of the jackets and tops. Personally, not my favourite Burberry collection but nevetheless great wearable clothes.
Way before the Lakshmi’s and the Ujjwala’s ever made it big internationally, there actually was an Indian model who did all the big International shows during the late 70’s. Her name is Kirat Young nee Kirat Bhinder, 5’11, born in Delhi and rasied in Dehradun, who had a chance meeting with Mr Laurent himself while on her holiday in Paris and immediately started modeling for him. The then 19-year-old was urged by a French journalist Dominique Brebec to go see Yves Saint Laurent, who was then scouting for fresh faces for what was to become a revolutionary collection from the YSL house of fashion. Young worked with him for 12 years and also modeled for big labels like Chanel, Armani, Versace and Valentino. She has also apparently done shoots for French and US Vogue also. Kirat is now a well regarded jewellery designer for Oscar De La Renta and Valentino and lives In Paris.
If you've cut yourself and are really bored of those loyal plain old bandaids, then here is the perfect solution. Brazillian designer Alexandre Hercovitch has collaborated with Bandaid to bring you the most fancy bandaids for those awful cuts. Sigh! I wish they could heal faster too. So if any of you or your friends are going to NY, you can buy it at Opening ceremony or in Brazil.
Her name is Sonia Dara and she is all of 18 yrs. She is American but of Indian origin. She was featured in Vogue India April 2008 shot by Sophie Delaporte. Here is the editorial and some more pictures of her.
First of all, I'd like to apologise for not updating the blog regular enough. Its been a little hectic lately and I've been a little lazy too. So to make up for it here are tons of new Lakshmi Menon pictures. The first two pictures are from the French L'Officiel for May 08 and shot by Jon Compson and the rest are shot by Benoit Peverelli but for which magazine I dont know. Refreshing to see her shot by some other photographers even though I think Prabuddha shoots her the best.
Looks and accessories that I would love to rock this season
Love love the burberry trench, the Alejandro Ingelmo red shoes, the fit of the suit Adam Kimmel suit, the Raf Simons sunglasses and the Adidas candy watches. How I wish I had money to buy all these things. The shoes definitely are on my "To buy" list.
