The French Riviera is the quintessential sweet spot, bringing together film and fashion. The Cannes Film Festival, known for sheer sartorial spectacle and star power, engaged the A-list as the ball gowns got bigger and the jewels brighter. Day 1 saw the feathery side of fashion, Katrina Kaif’s red carpet debut and man candy floating around the picturesque French boulevard
Today, one of the highest paid actresses in Bollywood, Katrina Kaif is sitting pretty with coveted brand endorsements, big-budget films and foot-stomping item songs in her kitty, as she fuels many fantasies. Post Chikni chameli, in early 2012, she sizzled across the silver screen in her sensuous number Ishq shava in Yash Chopra’s last magnum opus, Jab Tak Hain Jaan. The 29-year-old reel diva chats with Shraddha Jahagirdar-Saxena about the power and highs of being in the movies
The past year was rough. The dreaded ‘R’ word popped up everywhere. It was the survival of the fittest and the cheapest. Women bought relatively inexpensive items. Lipstick sales were good. Fashion sales were not (at full price); so tabs were slashed. Designers restrategised and redefined haute. Boyfriend chic (borrow his clothes since you have no new ones), vintage (borrow grandma’s for similar reasons) and power shoulders (intimidate at work-place so they do not fire you) rose to prominence. Even couture in Paris offered (hush hush) ‘package deals’ to their loyal customers. Suddenly, apparel was available at almost lipstick prices. What joy… let us buy everything!
