i used to have a crochet on lara...

...but then she went knitted herself a new look with it.
although my sources tell me that she merely took her grandma's table mats and stuck them back and front. considering her husband turned out in jeans for arguably the industry's most paparazzi-friendly event, she figured she wasn't going to try too hard, i guess.

table for one

neha dhupia seems to be all set for the after-party dinner.
table cloth: already wrapped around waist.
lace runner: dude, are you bling or something?

i guess if she's going to use both those things after, it's safe to say it's going to be dinner for one.

self hi maine le li aaj

sometimes it takes a critic (i'm not dignifying myself with that title) to take down what stars try to pass off as couture.

sometimes--like with kalki and her camera-printed night suit here--woh khud hi apni le lete hai.

aaaaaaaaaaa! chic nahi banaya

himesh reshammiya has answered that age-old question:
what do you do with all the badges you ever collected from school onwards? why, put it on your jacket, of course.

that, along with torn jeans and silver sneakers means, dear himesh, that nobody is going to want to sing jhalak dikhla ja to you.

bhat ya? bhat kinda fashion tamannaah is this?

some people desire to get on to the red carpet in a dream lbd.
others desire to be draped by a designer of their dreams in the most stunning gown ever.
but it takes a special kind of tamannaah to want to buy a sequin curtain from the sarojini nagar market and turn that into your red carpet skirt.

ivy league fashion

i can't quite put my finger on what it is with this outfit.
is it that sonam is wearing a gauze curtain cloth?
or that she looks more wax than model?
maybe it's...ya, i think, it's the fact that she likes a trellis window with ivy growing all over her that's creeping me out a just a little bit.

fitted for the occasion

what do you do when you have a photo-op for an event that's about being the best dressed but all you have is gladiator shoes and ... fitted sheets?

we've all been there.
we open the wardrobe and we can hear the wail welling up: "i have nothing to wear!"

well, folks, you need to stop being whiny and be resourceful like richa chadha.

first you take one site of the fitted sheet and make one layer. then you take the other side and then the third. you don't even need the fourth side.

and, voila.

imported from lajpat nagar

i think adah sharma is an escaped mannequin from home saaz in lajpat nagar / delhi.

i know what you're thinking.
"it's possible that she's wearing a curtain but even someone like her can't be wearing a pink curtain, can she?"

you don't know delhi people's tastes (i know that's a strong word), do you?

but i'm glad you at least didn't question why a home furnishing store would have mannequins draped in rugs and curtains. in case you still need proof of that (beyond adah sharma's picture above), this is from home saaz's website (incidentally, their slogan is "satisfying the soul..."):

karan tackier

who the heck is that, you're probably asking, and why is he even featured here (or maybe you're not asking that).

karan tacker is one of those now-you-see-him now-you-don't kind of television actors.
and true to form, he's trying his hardest to become an optical illusion here. and while doing so, he's working the "tackier" into his name quite efficiently.

all in all, we're probably better off when he's in his now-you-don't-see-me mode.

origami carpet

main hoon gupta rani
badi sayani.
but even i am puzzled
as to what i've rustled
to wear on the green carpet
it looks to me like it's a carpet
although you might think it's origami.
batao, is mein to kuch nahi hai na kami?
