Drama Queen and ‘Mean Girl’ Lindsay Lohan hasn’t had enough of Chatwal Khaandan. After being spotted smooching and doing lines with Vikram Chatwal at his hotel Dream, Lilo made a sour face and rudely confronted Priya Sachdev at the Dream Downtown on Wednesday night, saying with obvious disdain, “You are his wife?”
Lindsay had been staying at Vikram’s house and even installed her hairdresser in the baby’s room, but was told to leave before Priya arrived from India with their daughter a few days ago. In fact Pop-in-Law, Sant Chatwal tried to order Lindsay out numerous times.
Lilo and Priya confrontation happened when Lindsay found out Vikram was hosting a dinner at the Dream, and turned up with a friend at the hotel’s Electric Room. Priya was subdued and calm but Lilo was playing out her ‘Mean Girls’ role in real life. Sources say that Lindsay Lohan never knew Vikram Chatwal was married.
But I think Vikram Chatwal is to be blamed for it all. He flew Lohan to town before New York Fashion Week on his jet, and they’ve been repeatedly spotted partying together. Papa Sant Chatwal is a worried man because now Priya, the separated wife of Vikram can really claim a huge-huge alimony when the divorce settlements come up.
Sunjay Kapur’s lucky that he has never been caught red-handed or clicked by the paparazzi with Priya Sachdev!
New York Fashion Week where top designers showcased Fall-Winter 2011 Collections drew to a close with a definitive fashion statement – Long, Lean & Ladylike! Among the oddball indicators of the economic future, hem lengths are one of the more popular. Urban lore says short skirts reflect a bullish stock market and hems drop when people get down on their luck. New York Fashion Week wrapped up yesterday and, one of the take away messages is longer hems are here to stay. Ne fret pas: That doesn’t mean we’re in for another meltdown. In fact, the industry has been showing signs of a turnaround. Nevertheless, hems lowered in the middle of the downturn and longer silhouettes seem to be having a lasting effect on fashion.
Except for a nod to the ’70s last season, Marc Jacobs has been playing with a more demure, sophisticated look for a few seasons now. For fall 2011, he showed grown up silhouettes reminiscent of Dior’s New Look from the ’40s in futuristic materials such as a metallic rubber, fur and cellophane. Donna Karan’s ‘look for the boardroom’ (her forte) was clearly enamored with ’50s silhouettes for today’s all-business woman. Tippi Hedren and Grace Kelly are the two names that best describe the Hollywood glamour Karan managed to add to her working girls. Carolina Herrera who claims to be inspired by “real women” presented simple trousers and dresses with a real woman in mind. Straight ahead; nothing fancy; very wearable, except for flourishes like a high-necked fur collars and wide-cuffed leather gloves. Even the bad girls – Mulleavy sisters at Rodarte took to good girls — Prairie girls. Inspired by the film Days of Heaven they showed gowns that billowed with wheat prints lining their hem. To that, they added craft-like quilted apron dresses and floor-dusting coats.
That’s not to say that partying ’70s references have disappeared altogether. Michael Kors’ fall collection is solidly rooted in the disco era. To prove the point, Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder mixes blared as long, lean gowns with deep V-necklines sailed down the runway. And the ’70s have largely dictated the modern trouser: high-waisted, loose and flowing — a very welcome respite from years and years of skinny.
Well Tom Ford certainly got off to a cracking start in 2011, uploading images of his new eyewear campaign, which co-stars Abbey Lee Kershaw. Now comes a video of that top-secret debut Tom Ford womenswear show which was presented to a tightly-edited throng of just 100 at New York Fashion Week in September 2010, with highly restricted camera access. Ford has spent a lot of time talking down the new digital news domain, telling US Vogue, “I do not understand everyone’s need to see everything online the day after the show”. Now that it’s crunch time for Ford’s collection to hit stores, fashionscandal has little doubt he is thrilled that social media is spreading the buzz. Just click on the link below to see the video!
