Hotelier Vikram Chatwal, the ex husband of Delhi socialite – Priya Sachdev was arrested on 2nd April at the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport with an arsenal of drugs hidden on his person, in his crotch and in his bag. Chatwal’s association with drugs in nothing new. He was also at a drug rehab hospital in Mumbai few years back and many US Tabloids have many a times reported Chatwal and his BFF – Lindsay Lohan as coke-buddies.
Vikram Chatwal was booked on one count of trafficking (6 grams of heroin) and seven counts of possession … including cocaine, buprenorphine (an opioid), clonazepam (a sedative), alprazolam (Xanax) and lorazepam (muscle relaxants), ketamine (a horse tranquilizer) and weed.
According to the police report, Chatwal admitted to cops that he illegally purchased and possessed the drugs.
Wearing the latest couture outfit or wrapping yourself up in latest fashion labels head to toe doesn’t make you fashionable. Yet our so-called fashionistas do just that so very often. Preparing this list of ‘fashion victims’ was difficult as had numerous suggestions. In fact I have totally avoided the new breed of crappy Page-3 types that find space in out newspaper tabloids as they don’t even qualify to be called ‘fashion-victims’. So Sapna, Dimple, Pushpanjali, Salloli, Vandy, Meenakshi, Ramola, Sangeeta, Kanchan, Preeti, Mamta and the types, you are spared. Will probably create a section – ‘fashion assault’ sometime soon.
A fashionable lady for me is somebody who knows her assets and flaws and dresses accordingly. The fashion victims I listed here are simply ignoring that basic factor about dressing up. Look at Nita Ambani. She looks graceful in a sari or an Anaarkali but what on earth made her wear these apron-type dresses? Nita you can go-back 20-years on Cover shoot courtesy airbrushing but not when it comes to dressing. Same goes for Sunanda Tharoor. She looks pretty in a sari but hey please make sure your blouse doesn’t have a wet patch around the under-arms. The dhoti-salwar is ugg! And Gauri Khan…that bronze look and cleavage show is getting a wee bit too much. Satin is an unforgiving fabric that reveals every bump and roll so if you wearing one, you better keep your posture taut.
Sonam Kapoor is the darling of the desi rag-mags. She’s been on the cover of almost all. But I feel at times Sonam go-overboard to flaunt the esoteric labels she has in her closet and look like a ‘pelican’. Remember her boobs almost spilled out of the Gaultier gown? Her broad shoulders aren’t flattering too in bare-shoulder numbers. Tanisha Mohan too has a wardrobe that any woman would envy and yet at times she wears clothes that can’t help but being labeled as ‘fashion victim’. Priya Sachdev in a sleeveless number is a disaster. I had written about it earlier here. Those unsightly folds around the armpit are better kept covered. Don’t you think so?
And what do I say about Queenie Singh? She has gone so much under the knife that she looks like a shriveled up raisin. Wearing short dresses doesn’t make her look fab. In fact those bony knee-caps stand out as an eyesore. Plunging necklines are fine but what about the saggy boobs?
It is not a secret now that Karisma Kapoor and Sunjay Kapur are getting divorced and the matter is in the court. In fact fashionscandal.com was the first to break this news way back on the 3rd of August 2012 when the post highlighted Sunjay Kapur’s new lady-love – Priya Sachdev. Here is the link to that post: http://wp.me/p1C8a1-13y
What actually led to the separation and the eventual divorce of Karisma and Sunjay Kapur? If very-very reliable sources are to be believed they were silly little domestic issues. Karisma would throw tantrums if she found her babies’ toys strewn around the house or see the tri-cycle of the kid in the lawn. These were primarily the main reasons between husband-wife tiffs. Come-on Karisma a household with kids will have toys strewn around or a tri-cycle left on the front lawn. What’s the big deal??? Any household with kids usually have toys all around. In fact it shows that the house is happy with happy toddlers full of energy. This obsession about things in order in a household with two infants is a bit too much.
Then the Bollywood bug bit Karisma Kapoor and she moved base to Mumbai. A marriage is difficult when husband – wife are leaving under separate roofs in different cities. Nothing much was achieved by Karisma in the so-called ‘second innings’ in Bollywood. All she managed was a C-grade movie that disappeared silently and some random advertisements deals selling rice. I wonder what’s the the future of Madhuri Dixit Nene’s return to Bollywood. Poor Dr. Nene left his medical practice to shift to Mumbai and be a house-husband. This Bollywood kida is dangerous. Once bitten, you can’t stay away from it!
Did I forget to mention Saasuma’s role in the whole Karisma-Sunjay splitsville saga? Oh well, being the dominant mother she is, Babita was a constant irritant in Sunjay and Karisma’s life. It is better to end the marriage that’s so bitter. Hope Sunjay Kapur and Priya Chatwal (who are virtually living in) will have a lasting marriage if they wish to tie the knot.
Well the whole town knew that Priya Sachdev (Priya and Vikram Chatwal are officially divorced now) is dating the much-married Sunjay Kapur (better known as Karisma Kapoor’s hubby) but they denied and often came out with statements in the Press that all is hunky-dory between Sunjay and Karisma.
The much-in-love couple – Priya and Sunjay earlier used to make separate entries to a party and also make separate exits. But last Saturday at Gaurav Karan’s party, Priya and Sunjay Kapur were like teeny love-birds. All through the night they wouldn’t leave each other’s hands and often get lost into each other’s eyes. If I believe my sources Priya has moved in with Sunjay Kapur.
So now what’s Karisma Kapoor gonna do? Still claim all is perfect between her and Sunjay Kapur? A marriage doesn’t fail because of the man or the wife. Both are equally responsible. Informed sources believe that Karisma married Sunjay Kapur on a rebound after her marriage alliance with Abhishek Bachchan fell through. I got lot of calls and that gave me tons of information. Babita, mother of Karisma and Kareena is a very interfering mom. Be it film producers, directors, boyfriends or a husband, Babita often rubbed them on the wrong side. Karisma though married in Delhi never really could give up Mumbai. And the addiction of Bollywood is something that stars can hardly give up. Probably her plans of rejoining Bollywood was too soon post marriage and motherhood. I would say Madhri Dixit Nene timed the Bollywood allure well. She is making her comeback only after her kids are grown up and family life is on a smooth track. Karisma sure did make a hasty return. Resultant her Bollywood return bombed disastrously and marriage is in the docks. It may not have been easy for Sunjay Kapur to comeback to an empty house month after month.
Anyway I am no marriage counsellor and the love birds – Priya and Sunjay were spotted last night at The Library Bar in Leela. This time the duo made separate exits once they discovered many shutterbugs were around. Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya???
Here is Fashionscandal.com’s second much-awaited list of the terrible-terrible fashion victims of 2011. This LIST too has been compiled from the suggestions made by readers and the names that appeared the most has been featured.
The first bunch of Fashion Victims are those who don’t dress their age. Gracefully ageing is so much more classy than acting like a Teeny-Bopper when you are fifty. Ramola Bachchan, Neeta Lulla and Reynu Taandon tops this list. Ramola Bachchan needs to do get rid of that scarlet red lipstick. It is too taarty! She also wears dresses that don’t compliment her body. What’s the point in showing those podgy knees and rolls of flesh around the armpit in shot dresses or off-shoulder ones? High time Neeta Lulla should gets rid of that fringe she has been sporting for decades. And she too has this habit of dressing up like a teeny-bopper. Reynu Taandon loves to wear her own creations, which may look nice on young women but definitely not on her own self. And yes she needs to look less caked-up on the face.
Then we have horrors like Anjalee Kapoor. She totally ignores what clothes suit her body-type and wears clothes that reveals all the flab at wrong places. Anjalee Kapoor seriously needs some professional fashion advice. Madam Tanisha Mohan should know money can’t buy her style. She has very broad-shoulders and extraordinarily flat derriere but still loves to wear off-shoulder numbers that show her masculine broad shoulders. Those Herve Leger dresses that she loves doesn’t flatter her figure, rather exposes the flat derriere. Priya Sachdev (Or is she still carrying the Chatwal name???) doesn’t have a flawless, smooth and taut armpits but she somehow loves to wear clothes that bare those unsightly armpits. I had mentioned this earlier but then she thinks she is a Diva.
Genelia D’Souza may have a baby-face charm but she has major cellulite problem and hence should refrain from wearing anything short that bares the orange-peel effect on her thighs. Queenie Singh may be a fashion icon to many but as I always believe – ‘money can’t buy you style’ – the expensive designer labels can’t make her look good. She looks kinda haggard, all pulled up and sorry to say, very masculine. Laila Khan Furniturewala and Natasha Khan too look hideous in form-fitted clothes as both don’t really have a figure to flaunt. And Preity Zinta…she is curve-less. I don’t see a waist. Zinta should stick to A-Line silhouettes!
