Ok so 'People' magazine came out with their annual best dressed issue,and since I did'nt entirely agree with their choice of the ten best dressed(I mean while I do think Twinkle Khanna dresses well and what not,she is most certainly not THE best dressed celebrity India has to offer),so I decided to come up with my own list of India's most formidable dressers.
First on our list is stylist extraordinaire Nidhi Jacob.This woman makes everything from bad 80's hair to geeky glasses work for her.With her slouchy cardigans and floral skirts/dresses, Nidhi takes granny chic to a whole new level.
Next on our list is Roohi Jaikishen.If this woman looks this good at 40+,I can only imagine how smoking she must've been in her heyday.Roohi is not your run of the mill socialite/industrialist's wife and hence steers clear of logo emblazoned handbags and tacky shiny designer garb.Instead she opts for age appropriate ensembles accessorised with statement pieces.
Priya Kishore deserves to be on this list for her hair do alone.I mean who else can pull off a Rihanna-esque shaved-off from the sides mohawk so effortlessly.This elfin beauty can make the simplest of tank tops and mid waisted dhoti pants look extremely elegant,teaming them with quirky jewelery and accessories(courtesy her store Bombay Electric I'm guessing).
(the one on the right,like duh)
Next we have Delhi's very own blue eyed boy,Vogue India's junior fashion editor Edward Lalrempuiia.In my opinion,he's popularized the whole preppy look in India(or in Delhi atleast),and that is why nowadays you see every second person sporting horn rimmed glasses and rolled up sleeves.While I think that Mr. Lalrempuiia is somewhat inspired by Karl Lagerfeld when it comes to dressing up,kudos to him for pulling it off,because like I say even imitating takes a lot of hard work(and good taste!)
Ok so when it comes to Sonam Kapoor,I really could'nt care less whether it's her own sense of style that shines through or her stylist's.Either way I love all most all of her sartorial choices(on screen or off).
And now since I am strapped for time and there are lots more seriously stylish celebrities and regular joes out there(like LOTS more),I will keep updating you on them in subsequent posts.So, peace out and until next time.
