he best of Bollywood swear by him for their red carpet outings and he can never be too far from glamour and glory. In a career spanning over a decade, Rocky S has not only become synonymous with glamour and edge but has also established himself as a designer who does not follow norms. From muses such as Bipasha Basu and Sushmita Sen to dressing international stars like Beyonce Knowles, he has done it all, and in this video, he talks, what else, but fashion!
f you liked watching Pyaar Ke Side Effects, you are going to love its long-due sequel even better. This hilarious comedy about marital woes stars Vidya Balan and Farhan Akhtar as a married couple desperately trying to rekindle the spark in their romance and make their marriage work. While Farhan is back to his casual avatar after a drastic makeover for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Vidya leaves her traditional sarees behind to slip into smart western wear.

s summer inches closer, hemlines go shorter. But it looks like the swish set is not letting go off their sleeves, instead preferring to keep them full-length or long enough for the fabric to kiss the wrists. Wearing this style statement on their sleeves (pun intended) gives us glam girls the freedom to experiment with the length of our hemlines. Perfect it for a dazzling red carpet statement or go for a demure design for the workplace.
While Gwyneth Paltrow scored some sizzling brownie points with Saint Laurent’s LBD, Taylor Swift went for glam shine with her Zuhair Murad rendition. In anticipation of spring, Kerry Washington slipped into a soft pink Stella McCartney ensemble. Closer home, Parineeti Chopra opted for polka dots on her long sleeve-short dress while Lisa Haydon oozed elegance in her outfit. Singer-VJ Anusha Dandekar opted for some feathers and fun with her cobalt blue dress.
On the runway, Lebanese designer Elie Saab sent his models out in bejewelled dresses, in his trademark textured and iridescent designs. From Valentino, the colours were earthier instead of the ephemeral while Victoria Beckham’s designs were more fun and frolic, steering away from the regular red carpet prescription. Aneeth Arora (Pero) had the quintessential Indian summer in mind when she added long sleeves to her floral designs while Sanchita kept hers cool and casual.
If you are more inclined towards a cleaner look, keep accessories to a minimum. You could opt for delicate charm bracelets dangling off your wrists to add an extra dollop of elegance. To look like the belle of the ball, step into a pair of stilettoes or induce some extra glamour by donning a pair of shiny metallic sling-backs. And if comfort style is more your thing, you could pair your attire with a pair of smoking slippers. In terms of pairing a bag with your dress, steer clear of large hobos and instead opt for dainty clutch purses to complete the look.
No points for guessing that this trend could be your best bet to enter the season’s coveted dress circle.

ith winter on its way out, can spring be far behind! Embrace the warmer evenings with gusto as you start peeling off some layers of clothing and show off some skin. And what better way to go daring with dresses that are barely-there on your back.
The focus seems to have shifted to the behind, with celebs sending the mercury soaring as their necklines take a plunge at the back – both at red carpets as well as public events. From Priyanka Chopra’s edgy leather dress to Sonakshi Sinha’s elegant gown, and from Amy Adams’ barely-there halter to Emma Watson’s avant garde look, the spotlight right now is on showing off bronzed shoulder blades and back.
It’s the element of surprise that makes the backless dress work so well. You can have a demure neckline up-front but viola, you turn into a sexy kitten as soon as you turn your back. Pick a dress with an interesting cut-out detail for a party, a fun cross-back dress for a brunch date, or a sexy halter dress when you want to be the centre of attention. A slashed-back top is what will set the mood at a music festival or a rock concert.
To play a little further with this trend, experiment with fun hairstyles like a top knot or a messy bun, or even a side braid that lets you show off your statement making outfit.
But you might want to skip this trend if you are not blessed with a perfectly toned back, but even if you don’t, there are plenty of options for you. Lace panels on the back give you enough coverage, while still revealing a hint of skin. Take cues from Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s emerald gown with a lace behind if you want to give this trend a shot.
Spring is in the air and let the gentle breeze caress your skin, girls!

unk has inspired fashion for decades, reflecting an attitude that is strong, often rebellious and sometimes downright scandalous for the conventional clotheshorse. Recent outings on the runway raised eyebrows with screaming mottos splayed across T-shirts. Going in the right direction to bringing out the punk side in you, these tees are definite conversation starters.
If this trend is giving you cold feet then the bevy of A-listers rocking it will totally nudge you towards embracing it. From Halle Berry to Katy Perry, most celebs have sported a tee with fun text on their public outings. Whether it’s Chris Martin rooting for saving the planet or Salman Khan spreading a social message through his Being Human tees, this trend is definitely on an upward swing. Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra could have not done it better with their motto tees too.
Designers like Zoe Jordan and Paul & Joe boldly printed their brand names across tees, while Kenzo opted for sending a message to help protect the environment. The runways of Ashish, Versace, Devastee and Maison Martin Margiela were funkier with statement slogans.
Tees are sexy and cool, perfect for the warmer months of the year. Style yours to look laidback or dress it up with pumps for a look that is more chic than chilled-out. A long tee can be worn over leggings or just throw on a pair of jeans or shorts with sneakers. There are no limits when it comes to how you can work this trend. But you wouldn’t want to mortify relatives at a family gathering with mottos too bold sprawled across your chest.
So when going punk, remember to wear your attitude on your sleeve and your message across your chest!
