Lakme Fashion Week

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.

F.Y.I
1)gauhar khan already knew that the zipper of the skirt had some fabric caught on to it...it wasnt proper....not for walking atleast...till she was standing still it was ok....but the designer lascelles symons says that he himself asked her to go ahead "PRAYING" that nothing would go wrong.so we know..who is to blame...i wonder who will buy his collection.....you wouldnt want your zipper to be undone if you are going to buy creations from a designer after paying filthy amounts of money.....and gauhar khan also handled it pretty well.....she couldnt do anything....if she hadnt put her hand it would have stripped of completely and that would have been a worse situation to handle...atleast she got to know that the zipper came undone

2)this is what tapur chaterjee (read most demanded twin model) has to say about the wardrobe malfunctions "everyone's under so much pressure during the show.such things happen.its not a big deal i think we should forget about it."
well this gives us a glimpse of how selfish people in modeling industry are.it happened to your colleague....so before you say 'its not a big deal and lets forget about it" think twice...bcoz if it happened to her it can happen to you....then we will see who forgets.....

3)my dear....please do not stab me in my heart by calling MR MANISH MALHOTRA 'some designer'.....he is the one who has been dressing kajol to make her loof half decent after her atrocious dressing sense off screen....and somehow she has a knack for choosing the worst creations of any designer...what she wore was ugly...her style is anything but impressive....if she was give to me for a day....oh man...i would make her look fabulous...against her wishes ofcourse...and you must know if you like kajol so much that she and manish happen to be the best pals.....thats one more reason why i am going to ask him to design my wedding dress......lol...

Its sad what happened !! Carol's always been my Star face. We've all had embarassing moments in our lives. If you've had one you'll know what i mean. If you havent your lucky. sometimes they're devastating.. they're considered a part of life. we could say a thousand words to console her but no one could ever feel what she felt upstage at that very minute. I adore her courage. lets.. everyone forget about it and make it easier on her.. Time's the best healer !!
