Hyeres, Hyeres, Hyeres

Just a quick note to let everyone know that I am still alive. I've just had a fantastic long weekend in the southernest city in provence, Hyeres where I was fortunate enough to visit the festival, I even got to have a long conversation with the Sartorialist. I am pretty tired still and want to save my postings until I can actually write again but this is a teaser. Apologies that I'm so late but what can I say...I'm lazy.

Bollywood Sexy Actress Mallika Sherawat’s sexy pole dance

Hot Mallika Sherawat never misses any opportunity to woo her audience. Many times, her seductive body movements made guys fall weak in the knees. In Kamal Hassan’s Dasavatharam, Mallika is again going to awestruck everyone with her
sexy pole dance.

She is quite excited to perform this new dance form which she has never tried before. Her inquisitiveness about pole dance is so high that before shooting she did a thorough research about the dance, consulted many books and watched videos of expert polo dancers. When she had shaken her body in Maiyya Maiyya for Guru, she was highly appreciated and the same choreographer Brinda has trained her for the pole dance.

Brinda appreciated Mallika’s co-operation. They completed the song in two days without any tensions and barriers. Brinda describes the song in the following words, "The song has been framed to seduce Kamal Hassan where Mallika will be heading some other dancers in the background." Madam M never hesitates to do dance movements however vulgar and awkward it may look. Controversies stuck her in every step but she boldly faces any harsh comments.

Bollywoods Hot Actress Kareena to act in Telugu film

After conquering Bollywood, ravishing Kareena Kapoor is heading towards south. Grapevine buzzed that Kareena will act in Telugu film opposite south star Pawan Kalyan in his next flick Puli. Director SJ Suryah and producer Singanamala Ramesh have approached Kareena but she is yet to give her consent.
Pawan Kalyan and Ileana’s Jalsa is doing well at the box-office and the filmmaker now wanted to cast a popular Bollywood female lead opposite him in his next film and so they have selected Bebo as she is the most happening actress of hindi cinema. The movie will have both Bollywood and Hollywood connections. Hindi film cinematographer Binod Pradhan will handle the camera and AR Rahman will compose the music of the film. The action sequences of the film will be directed by a Hollywood action director.

Kareena have a bagful of Bollywood assignments and if the filmmakers are able to convince her then it would be a great achievement for them. The director and the producer are anxiously waiting for her reply.

Bollywood Hot Actress Celina Jaitley says Cheerleaders can't wear saris

Cheerleaders being wrapped cricketer being slapped, Is cricket turning into a Tamasha? Bollywood reacts...
Celina Jaitley: "No I don't think cricket has become a tamasha. I think everything that's happening at the IPL is being turned into a tamasha. Sreesanth being slapped is very unfortunate. I feel that the spirit of sportsmanship which makes every sport noble is now going out of cricket. Sad.
Hema Malini: "Yes, cricket has become a big tamasha. The dignity of the game is completely lost. Cricket by itself is so engrossing. Why does it suddenly need women to cheer on the players and the public?

There's absolutely no need for such distractions. The Indian public had no clue about such entertainment (cheerleaders) before this. And now there's slapping during the game! I am shocked.

Urmila Matondkar: "I don't think cricket is turning into tamasha at all. It's just that cricket has turned more glamorous exciting and bigger. As for the cheerleaders I don't think they serve any purpose at all. We don't need to copy the West blindly."

Naseeruddin Shah: "It's been heading towards that direction for a while. But hasn't everything becoming a tamasha? Look at the daily news."

Mahesh Bhatt: "The triumph of entertainment and the death of cricket. In the desperate effort to entertain our entire existence has become grotesque.

Sonu Sood: "No I don't think so. People in this country have a tendency to overeact. Cheerleaders add glamour to the sport. So why not treat it that way?
Don't spectators enjoy the presence of these cheerleaders at football games abroad? But here there's bound to be a reaction to everything that's new. Sad. What happened to Sreesanth was not right.

I agree cricket has become more of a tamasha less of a sport lately. At least to me it's no longer exciting.

Aryan Vaid: "I've always been a huge cricket fan. Nothing can take away from its popularity. Tomorrow it may can turn into a ras leela, it won't matter. It will continue to grow in popularity.

As for the cheerleaders I don't want to play a spoil sport. But I don't understand the need for so much flesh display. The IPL is a tamasha. And that's what sells. Ask Rakhi Sawant and Mika about it ha ha.

Chitrangda: "I really feel it's more a tamasha than a sport. All I hear are numbers involved in the money-spinning market. I miss the real sport, the real use of talent and the genuine intention of the sport. I'm afraid it's being played for the love of the money and not the game."

Kushal Punjabi: "Firstly this is hardly cricket. T20 is a completely new format. All the rules have been changed, so why not go the whole hog and make it a fun-filled event with cheerleaders, celebrities, the works?

As for the slap, fights happen in every sport. So let's not get carried away. Let's just enjoy the tamasha and let's be entertained. We are an entertainment-crazy people.

Muzzamil Ibrahim: "I've played cricket under 16 and on national level. Cricket per se incites passion. No need for cheerleaders and other props to set the pulse running. It has to be some non-cricketers who have turned into a money-making circus.

Ashish Chowdhary: "Well cricket is meant to be entertainment for all. And cheerleaders are a fun part of it. We don't need to ape the West. But it's entirely up to the organizers what elements they want to bring in.

But please let's not bring in the moral police. There's more nudity happening on tv. We get offended in the country for the silliest of reasons. As for Sreesanth's slap it's a matter between two team mates.

They's understand their bonding better than any of us. If Sree complains it should be looked into. If he doesn't we need to mind our own business. Emotions always run hight during sports events.. If cricket has become a tamasha I love every bit of it.

Samir Soni: "Certain frills might have been added to the cricket format to broaden the fan base. But that apart the game continues to be intensely engaging.The slapping incident is unfortunate.

But such things happen in any sport so why single out cricket? About the cheerleaders the less said the better. Cricket being big in our country everything about it gets blown out of proportion.

Prakash Jha: "Ha ha. Market pressures will turn everything into a tamasha. There's much more of it coming up."

Riya Sen: "Cricket as a game has a huge credibility attached to it. Some peculiar situations may arise. But nothing can take away from its charm."

Tusshar Kapoor: "Everything is turned into media entertainment these days. With so many channels on the air the appetite for controversy is insatiable."

Koena Mitra: "The slapping on the field was an ugly situation not expected from a sportsman. But I'm sure this incident is just an isolated one.The Indian team has such unity it's impossible for them to fight with one another.

As for the cheerleaders, they can't be dressed in sarees on the field. Come on! Some politicians are again wasting their time fighting a bogus issue.

Rohit Roy:"Well T20 is meant to be a tamasha kind of cricket in any case. It's the perfect blend of cricket and entertainment with Bollywood ka tadka.Quite like the baseball games in America.

The incident between Bhajji and Sree, however unfortunate, proves that cricketers are not taking the game lightly. I'm hosting the Jaipur leg of the tournament.

I've seen the matches from close quarters. Let me tell you they're fought tooth and nail. As for censoring the cheerleaders, that's another example of moral hypocrisy that exists in oir country.

Neetu Chandra: "No I don't think it's a tamasha at all. Rather it's a celebration of cricket and I'm sure the ILP will be like the Olympics of cricket.

It's amazing to see so many professionals apart from sports persons making the IPL happen. I hope everyone puts aside personal issues. Because the whole world is watching India."

Marchesa Fall 2008 Collection and Its Architectural Inspirations

Marchesa's Fall 2008 Collection paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth 1. It is mainly composed of evening gowns and cocktail dresses. The colour palette was mostly black, purple, red and ivory, with the one pale blue one-shouldered gown. Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig used ruffles, rosettes and lace.

The gowns were gorgeous, aren't they? But I'm sure you'll love them more after visiting Trendinista blog. Jill Sherman, author of the blog, studied the designs of Machesa's gowns and she was able to compile photos of the gowns with spires and pagodas that somehow looked like them. You'll never believe this, at first glance you'd probably think that the gowns were inspired by these architectural designs.

To view the rest of the compilation, visit Tredinista blog.


Flair Magazine April 2008: Hollywood Dreams with Flavia Oliveir

Have you seen the April issue of Flair magazine? Well, it has a spread featuring model Flavia Oliveira with an editorial title "Hollywood Dreams". Flavia portrayed an image of an aspiring model who seeks stardom, finds rejection, romance, publicity, boredom and personal epiphanies along the way.

In these photos, you will see Flavia smoking Nat Sherman Fantasia cigarettes in bright, spring-colored hues and holding a bottle of whisky. Do you consider cigarette and whisky as glamorous and fashionable accessories to an outfit or they're just self-destructive ?


Bathing Suit Lust: Zimmermann's Avalon Butterfly Suit

($242, Avalon,
To be sure, $242 is a lot for this bathing suit, by Aussie label Zimmermann, but it does come with a halter strap, and that's worth at least eight bucks! Very Golden Girls glam. Also, I don't really have $242 sitting around, but I do have some eggs ripe for the harvesting! Do you think Wink barters?

Another sweet butterfly motif Zimmermann suit:
($196, Zimmermann, Shopbop)

Will Broome For Topshop

Designer/illustrator Will Broome has illustrated for Marc By Marc Jacobs (he had to have done those robot designs), and his Topshop collection of tops with creepy-cool cartoon faces is now available. They're playful without looking too ridiculously young and '80-ish without treading into dangerous Hammer pants territory.

My two faves:

(Apprx $43 USD, Top Shop)

(Apprx $49 USD, Topshop)

+ Also, per Nylon, Topshop now ships to the U.S. YAY!
+ ALSO Also: Topshop New York is closer than ever to reality! Praise Jeebiz!

She is one of the popular actresses in South India after her hits her remuneration also goes high. Sources say that Nayanthara is opting for higher salary after the film Billa!!! Her salary grows up to 1Crore.

Illeana charged Rs.1Crore as fee to act for the film Bhale Dongalu and the film went Box Office. In the same manner Nayanthara is having a good time in Tami Film Industry and there is more chance of beating Illeana’s remuneration.

Bollywoods Hot Actresess Minnisha and Bips feel to make cute pair with Ranbir Kapoor.

Her role in ‘Shaurya’ won her accolades not just from fans, but also from the critics, and now Minnisha is ready to make a comeback to mainstream Bollywood with ‘Bachana Aae Haseeno’.

Minnisha has replaced Katrina Kaif in the movie as Kat did not find the role to be impressive; Ranbir Kapoor will be shown romancing Minnisha in ‘Bachana Aae Haseeno’. Minnisha has earlier paired with Abhay Deol, Jimmy Shergill and Rahul Bose, but her pairing with has not been termed as the perfect ‘jodi’ just yet.

Minnisha is however; sure that audiences will love her pairing with Ranbir as the two look really cute together and also; share a great on-screen chemistry.

Now, co-star Bips has also been claming her ‘jodi’ with Ranbir to be #1 in the flick which is the remake of the Hollywood blockbuster ‘Bachelor’.

So, if Bips-n-Minnisha’s claims turn out to be true then, Deepika sure has to keep Ranbir away from these Bollywood babes and express loud, “Ranbir honey, Bachana from these Haseenas.”

Bollywood Actress Neha Dhupia is Glow Baby

Neha Dhupia is glowing these days. It may be love, but the girl is also looking forward to the release of four films — Singh Is Kinng, I am 24, Chala Murari Murder Karne and Raat Gayi Baat Gayi. However, she is quick to give the credit of her glowing skin to the plenty of water that she drinks. "I drink lots of water, exercise and do yoga. Also a body massage is perfect to rejuvenate and relax me," says Neha. Well, Ritwik, sadly you have no hand in her glowing skin. Is someone's heart 'squashed' now?

Bollywood Hot actress Rakhi Sawant gets back silicone implants

No matter how much personal the issue may be, item girl Rakhi Sawant never hesitates to bare her heart to the public. Whether it is Mika’s controversial kissing or getting her boobs silicon implant, she opens her heart to all. Her daring and outspoken nature bagged her the controversy queen title. She evokes what she feels is right with least botheration what trouble her statement would invite. Rakhi who had removed her breast implantation for a show would again get it back as her next project demands so.

She had removed it during the dance competition Nach Baliye where she grooved with her baliye Abhishek Awasthi. She again felt the need to increase its size and therefore is undergoing this surgery. During her chat with Karan Johar at Koffee With Karan, she had candidly spoken out about undergoing cosmetic surgery for her lips to give a seductive look.

Today, Rakhi tops in the item girl list. She has been signed by Yashraj banner to star opposite Shahid Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee. Her career graph is ascending higher with every passing day.

bollywood Actress Deepa’s sex video leaked out

If one recalls, Shahrukh Khan was featured opposite Deepa Sahi in Maya Memsaab in 1993. The film had some obscene sequences and so the censor board had released the film with some cuts. Before it was out in the market, they had deleted the intense love making scene between Shahrukh and Deepa. But after 15 years, to everybody’s surprise that deleted scene is leaked on the internet.

On Friday, the hot video was out on the internet. In the film, Deepa played the role of Maya who had an extramarital affair with Lalit played by SRK. The film carried some hot scenes between them. Deepa was totally unaware that the video was leaked and instead she said that no scene was objected by the censor board and the film went without any cuts after being rework by the revised committee.

Shahrukh who was busy with his IPL remained unavailable for the comment. He even did not reply to the SMS that Deepa had sent him and neither called her up. Director of the film and husband of Deepa Sahi, Ketan Mehta too claimed that no scene of his film had been cut by the censor board and so there arises no question of leak out of sex video.

Bollywood Actress Kareena’s lap was beeing comfort for Saif’s son

Saif and Bebo are getting ready to embark into a new life with the blessing and acceptance of all. Despite her busy schedule, Kareena finds time to spend with Saif’s children Sara and Ibrahim. She not only presented Ibrahim his favorite video games on his birthday but was caught by the media with Saiffu’s son sitting comfortably on her lap on their way to the stadium where Mumbai Indians took over Deccan Chargers.

Surrounded by numbers of media persons, Saif drove his car to the venue with Bebo sitting beside him and Ibrahim on her lap. They all gelled very well. Wedding bells may ring anytime as both the families have accepted their relationship and moreover, they declared that their marriage may take place post Tashan.

The hot duo had taken a short break from their daily routine and flew off to Maldives to spend a romantic time in each other’s arm. Saif and Bebo are packed with lots of assignments and returning from Maldives that would again resume their work. Unfortunately, Tashan, which is special to both failed to click at the box office.

Bollywood Actresses gets into business too

If the men are doing it so are the women. From opening restaurants to starting hotels, actresses are also blurring the lines between the worlds of Bollywood and business.

While actors like Mithun Chakraborty, Shah Rukh Khan and Suniel Shetty are thriving in the business world, their counterparts Sushmita Sen, Aishwarya Rai and Preity Zinta are also giving them tough competition.

Sushmita was probably the first to turn entrepreneur when she set up her company Sensazione in 2006. Through her company, she plans to open a chain of hotels, lounges and spas. Besides, she has acquired 12,000 sq ft of space in Kolkata for a 'lifestyle zone', which apart from a huge open space will house a nightclub, a restaurant and a cigar lounge.

She says frankly that she was tired of being an actor and business had always been a second career option.

"Had I not been an actor, I would have been an entrepreneur. The lounge bar in Kolkata and my dream project, the spa, are all part of my effort to touch people's lives," the actress has been quoted as saying.

Sushmita has other plans too.
Under the banner of her production house Tantra Entertainment Pvt Ltd, the ex-Miss Universe also wants to make meaningful films. Her first venture is "Rani Lakshmi Bai - The Warrior Queen". The actress, who is directing as well as acting in the film, is currently busy with the pre-production work of the historical epic.

Miley Cyrus' Photo Shoot and Interview For Vanity Fair

After receiving some violent reactions, Vanity Fair officially released Miley Cyrus photos and interview for the upcoming issue of the magazine.

In the said issue, Miley was photographed with a blanket for a semi-naked effect. She also had a photo shoot with her father, Billy Ray Cyrus done by Annie Leivobitz in Calabasas, California.

Entitled as "Miley Knows Best", Vanity Fair aimed to know how she manage to be relatively normal between sold-out concerts, multi-platinum records, and a hit TV series, Hannah Montana; not to mention paparazzi on her tail and tabloid editors praying for her to pull a Britney.

Here's a glimpse of Miley's answers during the Vanity Fair Interview:

On Sex and the City: “It’s my favorite show! I love it! Obviously not the scenarios. But if you watch Sex and the City, like the way the friends are, the way that it’s dry and they all have distinct characters—that’s a thing we try to do on our show."

On the semi – topless photo shoot: “No, I mean I had a big blanket on. And I thought, This looks pretty, and really natural. I think it’s really artsy. [And] it wasn’t in a skanky way.… And you can’t say no to [photographer Annie Leibovitz]. She’s so cute. She gets this puppy-dog look and you’re like, O.K."

On whose career she’d like to follow: “Before, I’d say like Hilary Duff. But there can’t be a thousand Hilary Duffs. Then that doesn’t make Hilary special. And there can’t be a thousand Miley Cyruses, or that doesn’t make me special. That’s what a star is: they’re different. A celebrity is different. So, no, mostly I want to make my own path.

On being well-adjusted to the fame and public attention: “That’s just my personality. I don’t get shaken or stirred up over anything. Which can be a problem sometimes. I’m just, like, so no emotions. I just don’t let things faze me. I’m very much like my dad. My dad’s like this.”
