so.. another big boo-boo on stage. The Lakme India Fashion Week, had been launched with a big fanfare. And the bloopers are up and happening. but i d say tht the mistakes are not commited by the models but instead by the dumb fashion designers.
marc robinson said,"the designs are fine, the fittings are fine. whts gone wrong is the alteration. but tht happens" HAPPENS??
dude how'd u feel if ur tight pants tore right down the centre and displayed ur Kachcha to the world?? yeah i guess these models dont have tht big a problem abt it.. but i m sure they go through some heartburn. Carol Gracias' top/gown came tumbling down when the velcro parted ways and she held it up with her hands and walked on. kudos to Carol. not a change of expression from her. her face maintains the same detached look which all models wear. the same look which was on her face whn she entered. not a flick of an eyebrow and no jaw dropping, mouth covering episode. she coolly, smoothly, picks her top up, holds it in probable place and finishes her strut.
u can see her stoic face even in the pic, cool calm composed.(the pics not updating due to some technical error. will try again later)
meanwhile, Gauhar Khan's skirt ran a tear on the back right on ramp. she came, she walked and it tore. and she turned, twisted and walked off. When asked to comment she said, "its just coz this has happened consecutively from the last two days, is it getting so much media coverage. we r in this profession so we are used to it. its understandable." girl, even if it dint happen consecutively it would have been noticed. and we are nt chiding u anyway. its the designer at fault all the way.
a frnd of mine very aptly said, " in our business (advertising) if we make mistakes we pay with money, in theirs.." i guess the statement can be completed with in their business they pay with honour, if thts not too huge a term.
i can understand abt stage bloopers. they happen true enough. but u know, u cant really just stand by the side and grin foolishly and shrug and remark, "happens dahling". i remember the time whn during one of my dance shows, my students lehenga came trailing down. she bravely kept dancing on.. now she was nt eve a great dancer. but i had drilled into everyones brains, tht no matter wht happens the show must go on. yeah the idiom exists. and is in practice. in my last dance show, the one i was dancing in, my heel broke. i was doing a latin dance with one guy and only the two of us on stage. i stumbled (obviously) and carried on. we came third lost the first place but all the professional dancers who were judging the event applauded our performance the most. one time, my favourite students, bustier came of on stage, while she was doing the star prayer dance, the welcome dance. but she carried on too. the tiny tot was 10 years old. thts called a good coverup if ever.
another noticeble thing in the LFW was kajol. all ppl who know me, and know me well might remember that time of my life whn i was a crazy kajol fan. still like her, mind u, (dont u dare call her fat, black or ugly-u still cant do tht)but really. she walked on the ramp for some designer.. i m not sure who, and was wearing a really silly outfit. my mom said, "wht the hell has she worn and come on the ramp?? does nt she have any say or choice in the clothes given to her??" mm i defended her thn, but now thts a point. she really could have been given something much much better to adorn. and she s even become mindblowingly thin now. not fair.
