Check out these saris by Nida Mahmood, “Queen of Indian Kitsch”. Love the contrasting colours and the bright patterns. The saris definitely stand out without all the heavy embroidery… I am loving how the models are styled…with casual hair and chunky jewelry. It makes for a very modern and chic look. However, if you want to have more of a traditional or classy look, pair it with some traditional Indian costume jewelry, and you’re set! (All images from Exclusively In.)

I came across this gorgeous look from Oscar de la Renta’s most recent collection shown at New York Fashion week. I love the drama, the volume, the elegance and grace. I would love to see an Indian interpretation of this look: maybe a beaded choli in a contrasting colour?

After perusing through the galleries on Lakme Fashion Week, I concluded I was not overly thrilled with the fashion. Some of the looks (e.g., Manish Malhotra) were overdone and offered no inspiration, and other looks were just weird. Below are the stand outs for me (all pics from Lakme Fashion Week):
Preeti S. Kapoor
Palavi Mohan (ok…all these dresses are SO ME! Exaggerated shoulders, tight, and short. It’s not for everyone, but I love this look!!! These would be awesome stagette options!)
I loved Mila on That 70′s Show and I loved her in the Black Swan. And I especially loved her look at the Oscars. Her hair was simple and pretty, her make up was fresh, and her Elie Saab dress was sexy and romantic.
I absolutely LOVE this colour on Mila. Her choice shows that going with a colour that compliments your skin tone and a dress structure that suits your body shape leads to better results than choosing a trendy colour or trendy shape. The same applies to brides!
Thank God for double-sided tape!
The soft curls, low bun, and side swept bangs are a modern homage to the vintage pin curl look. The hair also perfectly compliments the romantic feel of her dress.
Who was your favourite at the Oscars?

Love the colour combinations, the modern yet still traditional jewelry, the fresh make-up, and the bright pink bindi. She looks modern and vintage at the same time. Love it.

I’m also looking forward to the Oscars this Sunday! Hopefully, there will be lots of beauty inspiration to behold!
