Here's some of the gossip that came to our ears at the Couture Week.
Dieting? What’s that?
So you thought models starved themselves to stay thin and sexy. Model Bruna Abdullah surprised us as she was seen enjoying generous helpings of muffins back stage. Good going Bruna as we too are not fans of that calorie-counting ‘model’ behaviour. eh!
Who’s the showstopper?
Designer Anju Modi, who is set to showcase her collection on day 2, had a trouble with her supposed showstopper Karisma Kapoor. Modi clarifies, “Karisma was busy with her kids so we are now replacing her with a fresh Bollywood face -Shradha Kapoor.”
Brats day out
Designers Rohit Bal and Rahul Khanna were at their cheeky best. At Varun Bahl’s show the two jibed at the catwalking models and even remarked: “What is that walk!” The two were also seen giggling and copying the rampwalk of the models.
More goss from the Front Row
Restaurateur AD Singh was seen in an ecstatic mood while watching the shows. The reason: He happily told us that he and wife Sabina are expecting a son. At designer JJ Valaya’s after show party, Singh was overheard exclaiming to a group of friends: “We were really hoping for a girl but, yes, it’s a boy. We’ve seen it!”
FDCI president Sunil Sethi too showed his savvy style as he was spotted wearing designer geeky glasses with animal print frames. Sethi’s in tune with the current ‘it’ trend glasses showed that he too likes to add the the latest hot accessories in his wardrobe.
