While we are gearing up for a super stylish 2014 (we wouldn’t have it any other way!), we are also engulfed by a sense of fashion nostalgia as the end of this year inches closer. 2013 was indeed a year of several fashion hits, misses and moments that made us sit up and take notice. So, we bring you a roundup of everything that had tweeting, hash tagging and obsessing over at brunch with our fellow fashionistas-in-crime this year!
Luxemi adds Amrapali to their designer roster
Celebrity favorite, Amrapali Jewels made their way to Luxemi’s designer directory with exclusive, one-of-a-kind pieces curated especially for us!
Vidya Balan causes an uproar at Cannes
Actress Vidya Balan made it to the prestigious jury at the Cannes Film Festival alongside Ang Lee and Steven Spielberg among others. Woot woot! Her red carpet appearances — styled by and dressed in Sabysachi — however were bit of a snooze fest. Turns out there is a thing as too much Sabyasachi. Who would have thought?
Tarun Tahiliani’s Cannes crusade
Veteran designer Tarun Tahiliani was handpicked to showcase at the prestigious amFAR 20thCinema Against AIDS benefit gala and fashion show held at Cannes. His beautiful Cannes crusade saw supermodel Karlie Kloss (and many more) strut down the runway in a liquid gold draped sari gown.
Luxemi gets featured on BuzzFeed
Thanks to the raging sari rental trend, being fabulously designer clad at a wedding need not burn a hole in your pocket anymore. Our founders discussed what makes this concept tick on BuzzFeed this year.
Priyanka Chopra turns Guess Girl
Back in Bollywood, it was definitely the year of actress-turned-pop star Priyanka Chopra. PC, as she is fondly called, kick started the year chartbusters in collaboration with Pitbull and Will.i.am and topped it off by snagging the title of the latest (and first Indian) Guess Girl — photographed by Bryan Adams for the brand’s holiday campaign.
Marc Jacobs moves on from Louis Vuitton
Tanishq’s buzz worthy commercial
Tanishq’s TV commercial supporting remarriage (plus featuring a dusky model), got the brand major props for making a strong and positive social statement. It’s definetly a step in the right direction!
Selfies whip up a storm
Oxford Dictionaries proclaimed ‘selfies’ as the international word of 2013. So now when your granny asks what is this selfie (for the nth time), you can safely hand her a dictionary and be done with it (sigh of relief)!
Gap + Warish Ahluwalia
The nath makes a comeback
Heirloom, old-school desi jewels made a major comeback, with the nath (nose ring) leading the way. Everyone from Sonam Kapoor and Vidya Balan to Kajol were seen giving it their unrelenting support.
Black and white take centre stage
Goodbye sindoor red bridal wear! Indian brides finally opened their trousseau trunks and wedding closets to make way for white and black ensembles (a color hitherto considered inauspicious).
