Oh! Pretty Women

Now this is a reunion we have been waiting for. The ’90s was when supermodels became superwomen, and grew ever larger before our goggled eyes. A tribute to Versace brought a throwback: Carla Bruni, Claudia, Naomi, Cindy and Helena, reprising a golden age in glittering silver. And our times? Fancy Kendall Jenner? Really?

Just Dragging On

It’s late, and the two club-hopping friends just needed a smoke break. But, even in the Big Apple, a furtive lensman was keeping watch on the casual Ranbir and gorgeously gowned Mahira Khan. The usual social media baloney ens­ued. Next time, guys, just take a break in Tallinn.

And Your Purses?

Priyanka and Sofia Vergara, dressed in gold and less, have reasons to link arms and say che­ese. They are in a top-10 list of the highest paid actresses on US telly. For sceptics who only grudgingly accepted her crossover, glamour int­­act, hear this: she grabbed $10 million this year. 

Need The Glove, Sach?

With senior players, on every field that is, seizing the broom and sweeping with gusto, Sachin had to  grab hold of poor Arjun, some brooms and head off to Bandra. Some ‘anti-litter’ talk before the cameras, a few poses, and he had earned his accolade.

Selfie Hands

With that loping run-up, perfect yorkers, the ine­v­itable clutch of wic­kets and the highest ODI tally, what more is left for Jhu­lan Goswami to ask from goddess Durga? At a mar­que pujo in Calcutta, Jhu­lan sum­moned up her girlhood, about how, inst­ead of coveting a few new dresses, like her friends, all she wanted was bowling spikes. That’s why she’s a champion. 

More Flowers Please

A 1950s-’60s aesthetic? Movies like Girls! Girls! Girls! and South Pacific? We don’t know yet, but Taapsee Pannu in Judwaa 2 might have been subject to a splash of vintage swimwear for a reason. Mean­while, Taapsee is worried if this would go well with her ‘image’. Can anyone please put her mind to rest?

This Too Happened

The Kardashian family won’t stop getting bigger! After reports of Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy, it’s
confirmed that it is Khloe Kardashian who is expecting a child with Tristan Thompson. The 33-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and the 26-year-old basketball player began dating a year ago.

  • Italy, all of a sudden, has overtaken Provence, Switzerland and grand European chateaus as the destination for celebrity Indian weddings. Preparations were afoot at the Villa del Balbianello on the impossibly picturesque Lake Como for the nuptials of Deepika and Ranveer, a duo who looks no less handsome than the fancy environs of their grand day on November 14 and 15. We hope Como lives up to their dreams.
  • Shillong-based Big-Ri (left) is a sharp card, a founder of hip-hop group Khasi Bloodz. Meba Ofilia’s style—note the robust armbands—is also steeped in hip-hop and R&B. The music they make together, like the edgily rusty Ambassador they choose as a prop, takes you unawares. The duo won the Best India Act for Done Talking at the 2018 Europe Music Awards, held in Barakaldo, Spain.
  • It’s curious that Sachin should be made ambassador for UNICEF’s ‘hand washing initiative’ and packed off to roofy Bhutan. But, ever the sportsman, he’s taken it in a batsman’s stride. The beneficiary is Bhutan’s national cricket team, and this lanky, teenaged batter.
  • Haute, they have always bel­ie­ved, is a seven-hued thing, and the cause of the LGBTQ has alw­ays been dear to the fashion fraternity. A parliament of forty designers conjured up the ‘Rain­bow’ show to celebrate the rec­ent junking of Article 377. Red mascara and blue-glittered coi­­ffure caught the eye; so did a message of love across a bare back.
