For fashion-lovers who keep watching re-runs of Sex and the City in the hope that some of the main character, Carrie Bradshaw's stylish looks rub off on them, there is reason to rejoice.

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker has just launched her clothing line, Bitten for the clothing store chain Steve & Barry in Manhattan this week.

Parker and Steve & Barry's, best known for its inexpensive college apparel, are hoping that the Bitten line stands out, given its cheap prices.

While other celebrity lines sell items for up to $100 or more, nothing in Bitten's 500-piece collection is over $20, and sizes range from 2 to 20.

"I loved the idea of mass accessibility. Democratisation of fashion was very appealing to me when I was thinking of this line. I wanted women of all races, backgrounds and sizes to enjoy fashion.

"The name Bitten comes from being ‘bitten' by the theatre bug," revealed Parker at her launch. And by the looks of it, the unprecedented sales in just one week of the clothing line's release, this style diva seems to have bitten the fashion bug at the right place, at the right time with her affordable yet chic classy designs!

Uber cool Just caught a glimpse of the JW Marriott Hotel's superbly produced in-house magazine U and I must-say it was impressive!

Actress Lara Dutta has never looked better than she did on the cover of this stylish issue.

The fashion feature with the country's top models shot by Jatin Kampani and styled by the multi-talented designer Gavin Miguel was definitely the icing on the cake. Only wish the magazine's weak content matched its high style quotient.

The dull amateurish articles need to be spiced up to match the otherwise snazzy magazine.

Society sting Every time I read or hear about another ‘Society' drug racket, I'm saddened because most of the guys involved are such sane people othewise.

Seeing DJ Aqeel arrested in Dubai last week on television was one such shocker. One of the most-liked guys in the industry, Aqeel's success story has been phenomenal.

From selling recorded cas settes as a teenager to becoming the country's most popular DJ, he man aged to establish him self right on the top, and in no time.

Both professionally and personally, he's got the most perfect life-a beautiful wife, lovely kids and a super-successful career. Genuinely a nice guy to work with-always smiling and helpful. Hopefully, he gets out of this ugly episode unscathed.

Chinese whispers The newly opened China House at the Grand Hyatt is perhaps one of the best Chinese eateries the city has witnessed in a long time.

Love the way the lounge area becomes a party zone after dinner gets done! Great decor, nice food and the friendly ambience are a huge plus.

The only downer is the unprofessional service of the waiter who served me my glass of Coke and had to go back twice to check its price, in order to correct the four-digit bill he gave me for the aerated drink!
