Kings Of The Parties

Even though the game was lost (a T20 against the Kiwis), November 5 was to go down as capt­­ain-­bla­ster Kohli’s 29th birthday in the dressing room. That fiery stare and frantic pacing were dissolved thus, in the smear and blanch of fresh cream. But before that, on November 2, was Shahrukh’s birthday, traditionally celebrated by delirious fans before his Ban­dra house—some making the pilgrimage from across India. Impossible as it may seem, he turned 52.

How Things Work Here

Before he was recently outed as the head creep in Hollywoodland, Harvey Weinstein was just a topmost dog in the movie business. Here, on the sets of her dir­ectorial debut Main Hoon Na (2004), Farah Khan gives “Bollywood gyaan”, as she put it recently, to Harvey.

Climbing Up

The very pretty Aahana Kumra feels that, after her gusty, acclaimed performance in Lipstick Under My Burkha, she has to go forth and expl­ore other interesting roles, cha­­r­­a­­cters with identities of their own. To emphasise that point, or to just show us her sense of fun, she also posed thus for us.

Our Mary, Extraordinary

The gathering years haven’t slowed her punches, nor have they shrunk the circles she weaves around her opponents. Five years after her Olympic bronze, M.C. Mary Kom, now 34, has won her fifth gold ever at the Asian championships in Ho Chi Minh City. In 48 kg, she’s queen.

Inner’s The Outer Limit

Diamonds, sapphires, topaz...many a beauty’s heart has stopped down the ages at the tiaras, necklaces, earrings and bracelets studded with these pricey rocks. Now they will be put to (wasteful, if you ask us) use on the Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra, fashioned by Victoria’s Secret. Underneath is said article, as worn by model Lais Ribeiro.

This Too Happened

After a picture agency apparently tried to sell off pictures of her, with at least one of them in the nude, the mysteriously private Australian singer-songwriter Sia Furler took to Twitter to post the picture with an upbeat caption for her fans: “Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!”

  • 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.
