While a dhoti can make you look incredibly sexy, the undesired folds and creases after 5 minutes of roaming around in a dhoti can  make the outfit look very drab. The solution? A ready to wear, pre-stitched dhoti!!! Yes, as simple as that. Fashion designer Anita Dongre dolled up actor Purab Kohli and sultry siren Sangeeta Bijlani in dhoti outfits. Take a cue and follow suit…

Exclusive pics: Supermodels Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and actor Demi Moore don outfits by Indian designers at Jodhpur bash

You must, by now, know that British supermodel Naomi Campbell and her Russian boyfriend Vladimir Doronin are in Jodhpur, celebrating the latter’s birthday. We know that Naomi is 42 years of age, but Vladimir’s age is not as known as his famous girlfriends. We wonder if the number of candles on his birthday cake were the equivalent of his age and if anyone bothered to count. Anyway, what’s important is that the high profile couple decided to party with their famous friends in the land of royalty – Jodhpur as they stay in the stunning Umaid Bhavan Palace. Sources from Jodhpur, however, say that they don’t understand the hype surrounding these ‘celebrity firangs’.

Most in the hospitality sector in Jodhpur have no clue who Naomi Campbell is or Kate Moss, for that matter. “Some firang actor or model,” they divulge. But being experts in the hospitality business, they know how to take care of VVIP guests, whether or not they recognise them. The most recognised by the staff, however, was designer Manish Malhotra and they loved him. Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger performed for the couple and guests present. Naomi and her model friends, Kate Moss, Karolina Kurkova, Hollywood actor Demi Moore and others donned creations by Indian designer Manish Malhotra. Naomi even wore a colourful Indian ghagra choli by Manav Gangwani and a white ensemble from Manish’s Mijwan collection for a brunch do. Here are some pics yours truly managed to lay hands on…

Don’t let stretch marks bother you. Learn from actor Zareen Khan

Zareen Khan

The intention of this post is not to embarrass the lady in the picture, Bollywood actor Zareen Khan, but to show scores of commoners that actors are ‘real’ people too, facing problems like any of us would. Bollywood, especially, is full of stories of actors who weighed 100 kgs before they shed more than half of that to join the movies. The best part is that they make it sound so easy! Actors like Sonam Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Jackie Bhagnani, they all talk of how overweight they were before they decided to lose it all, and seduce the camera. But somehow, one always tends to imagine that actors have it easy. It probably has to do with the fact that they camouflage their weaknesses well. Silky tresses, perfect pout, silky skin with porcelain texture to it, actors are every man and woman’s envy.
Actor Zareen Khan was one of those who no actor would imagine to carry in his arms and dance around trees, thanks to her weight. But her new found figure has not come without its share of hidden hazards.
Look carefully, and you’ll see her bosom and arms covered in stretch marks. Luckily, Zareen has a fair complexion which makes these marks go unnoticed initially.
I know dozens of people, both fat and thin, struggling with stretch marks on various parts of their bodies. Most of them sulk and blame these stretch marks for their lack of confidence and low self esteem.
I say, hats off to Zareen, who always puts her best foot forward, despite having to bear with these much-dreaded stretch marks.
