Karisma Kapoor

Just recently, the Bamla Foundation hosted an event for special kids, and gracing the event was none other than Karisma Kapoor. At the event, the actress threw the field open to questions from the media. But what caught out attention was Karisma’s revelation about her nephew Taimur Ali Khan’s first birthday plans.

When quizzed about the same, Karishma Kapoor said, “Yes Taimur’s birthday is arriving and it is a special moment for us. The family is really very excited and thrilled about the same.” When prodded further for details of what is being planned, Karisma went on, “We will have a family get together of sorts, and will not be having a big celebration.”

As of now, Taimur’s mother and Lolo’s sister Kareena Kapoor Khan is in Delhi shooting for the much talked about chick-flick Veere Di Wedding. The poster of the film was released recently and Karisma was asked about her reaction on the same.

Karisma Kapoor not only seemed pretty kicked about the film but was also all praises for the girl power in it. Sharing her thoughts on the same she added, “I loved the poster of Veere De Wedding. I think it has a great freshness to it and if I may say, it displays women power with all the ladies looking stunning in it. Besides the film also has a female producer, so full women power, which is fantastic.”

Veere Di Wedding features Kareena Kapoor Khan along with Sonam Kapoor and also Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania in pivotal roles. Directed by Shashanka Ghosh and produced by Ekta Kapoor, the film is slated to release on May 18, 2018.Read more at:mermaid wedding dresses | plus size wedding dresses

Flaunt your lehenga

Ditch the mundane lehenga for the upcoming wedding season. Wear a georgette belt with a flowy drape, sport cigarette pants underneath embellished sheer lehenga of soft net, experts suggested.

Fashion Designers Anu PD and Mini Bindra have listed few ideas:

Wear a georgette belt with a flowy drape and embellishments with your wedding lehenga. You can choose any colour that compliments your lehenga skirt and opt for heavy embroidery on the drape or even make it pleated as you may like it.

Colour blocking can be done with a nice stitched plain cotton silk shirt with flared lehenga of the same fabric with embellished motifs at the bottom or the border with heavy statement jewellery.

Make a very traditional outfit like a lehenga choli look trendy by adding a brocade or embellished collar, incorporating the flary or large sleeves trend for a Medieval look. Cold shoulder blouses have emerged as a staple in bridal wear collection.

Add oodles of drama by sporting a sleeveless jacket over your cold-shoulder choli , embellish the cold-shoulder detail with multiple pearl strands to evoke a by-gone era.Read more at:wedding dresses australia | bridesmaid dresses online

Bride Generously

A newly engaged woman is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a photographer to expand their portfolio by shooting a “dream wedding” for no charge.

Chloe Vandenberg of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada is in search of a photographer who wishes to seize a rare opportunity to create beautiful images that they can use in their portfolio for future marketing purposes. She has recently published advertisements on social media and in popular classified listings.

“We aren’t really interested in amateur photographers,” says Vandenberg, a 28-year old nurse. “We’re looking for someone with a good amount of experience, who would like to take advantage of a prime opportunity to create amazing photos that they can use to promote their wedding photography. It’s win-win: we’ll get beautiful wedding photos, and the photographer will be granted shared copyright ownership so that they can use our photos to generate more business.”

Vandenberg explained that she will be quite selective in choosing a photographer that fits her style, which she describes as vintage-modern portraits that are posed, but still candid.

She already has her entire wedding itinerary completely planned out. The ceremony will take place in a very dark church with stained glass windows and high ceilings, with the reception being held local community fire hall. She plans on applying her own makeup, to make sure she looks exactly the way she wants. She also indicated that her wedding photos are going to be the result of a group effort.

“We rented over a hundred tablet devices that guests will be able to pick up on the way into the ceremony. They can use them to take their own photos throughout the day. They’ll leave their tablets with us before they leave for the night. This way we’ll get to re-live our wedding day from the perspectives of each of our guests.”

To sweeten the deal, Vandenberg isn’t even requesting that all of the professional photos taken from the day be fully edited. “We only need a few hundred of the photos to actually be edited, and then unedited ones can just be given to us as raw files on a USB so that we can do with them what they please. My fiancé just started using Photoshop and he can do a lot of really creative things with filters.”

Vandenberg's offer to wedding professionals doesn't end with photographers. She is also on the hunt for a local caterer who can provide free meals for all of the guests by offering their finest seafood dishes, such as Atlantic lobster tails, beluga caviar, and bluefin tuna. "The free sample idea works great at places like Costco. The chefs will basically be getting free advertising for their services, and though I'm not paying them anything, I'm definitely going to tag them in a few of my Instagram posts. We're also looking for a hotel that wants to boost its ratings by offering free rooms to all our guests for the night."

Vandenberg published her ad six weeks ago and will be interviewing prospective photographers for the position beginning next month. When asked how many photographers had applied for the position thus far, she declined to comment.Read more at:wedding dresses perth | bridesmaid dresses

It’s possible to look stylish

Autumn is officially upon us and while that means we can finally bid adieu to sticky commutes, it also brings an entire set of workwear conundrums to figure out.

A whole new battleground, the creeping chill means your wardrobe can begin to feel a little tired but rather than starting from scratch, just one or two carefully curated pieces can make a world of difference and help fight those autumnal blues.

A good place to start is with switching out your sheer blouses for knitted tops, which you can pair with tailored trousers for the office when the weather takes a turn for the worse. Alternatively, keep the shirts but look to layering to keep you warm by wearing a jumper or cardigan over the top.

Likewise, investing in a new-season suit in thicker fabric makes for a modern interpretation of the classic working-week two piece. Here, you can either go high fashion with an oversized boxy fit or opt for something more figure flattering, the choice is yours.

That being said, if a suit is a little too formal for your liking, swish about the office in a pair of super-wide-leg trousers, a silk tee and plain white trainers.

Don’t rule out a floral dress either, as a trophy midi will quickly become the cornerstone of your new season wardrobe. A piece that takes all the hassle out of getting dressed in the morning, pair yours with knee-high boots and a wool coat to ensure it’s suitable for the cold months ahead.

Another point to consider when it comes to falling in love with your work wardrobe again is colour. While grey, black and blue are undeniably key colours you can mix and match with everything, it’s important not to limit yourself.

Instead, add pops of mustard, burgundy and duck-egg blue here and there – not only will they flatter your sallow winter skin but they’re also far more interesting sartorially too.Read more at:SheinDressAU | bridesmaid dresses

Celestial celebration

Dancers often are in a tight spot finding new themes and novel ways to present Natya Nadakams. Shangita Manoharan from Malaysia chose to present three popular divine weddings titled ‘Samyoga - Divine Union.’ Shangita and students of her company, Kalpana Dance Theatre, presented the work in Chennai recently, supported by ICCR.

Three wedding stories — Rama and Sita, Meenakshi and Sundareswarar, Valli and Murugan — were strung together and Shangita, who played the role of a Sutradhar, narrated the stories through dance.

Simple narrative

Beginning with the scene of Rama and Lakshmana accompanying Guru Viswamitra to the ashram, followed by Rama’s first glance of Sita in the garden playing with her friends to the breaking of Siva dhanush and the wedding sequence, the dance followed a simple narrative. The interest in the storyline slackened due to the lack of imaginative formations in the choreography. The sequences depicting Rama holding the Siva dhanush and a few theermanams at the swayamvaram looked out of place.

The presentation gained momentum with Meenakshi Kalyanam. The birth of Meenakshi, her training in various arts, her meeting with Siva, the blossoming of love and the thillana incorporated into the wedding scene unfolded one after the other in an aesthetic manner. Moving away from the classical mode, Valli Thirumanam with an interesting storyline, and music and dance movements based on folk style, was appealing.

The grand finale to celebrate the celestial weddings had a raas touch to it. At periodic intervals the lead pair of each story emerged from the group to bring about a visual link to the divine weddings. A little more attention to costume and styling would help in enhancing the production’s visual appeal.

The team with Shangita Manoharan (direction), P.T. Narendran (choreography), Va. Ve. Su (lyrics) and Hariprasad (music) needs to be lauded for its efforts.
