It’s all about the bling in my October Vogue India story. The magazine’s fifth anniversary issue has five—count ‘em, five!—glam covers featuring Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, and Deepika Padukone, and inside I interview the likes of Naeem Khan, Prabal Gurung, and Azeeza Desai Khan of Atelier Azza for a story on decorative embellishments sparkling on the runways. Don’t miss this issue!
Hi folks – sorry for the delay, but now that means I have not one but two Vogue covers to post.
Check them both out, and tell me what you think!
Micato Safaris has won T+L’s annual World’s Best Award for top safari outfitter for a whopping nine years. So when they designed my recent South Africa adventure, I knew I was in for a treat. Read on for my recap to see just how great a treat it was!
My newest story in July’s Vogue India will give you the scoop on precollections – prefall, resort, and other “in-between” lines. Check it out, and also check ME out — that’s my curly head on the contributors page!
…So this is crazy.
A fun video my friend Asma Sethi and I made during the festivities at Sana Ahmed and Mohsin Memon’s big fat Indian-Pakistani Muslim wedding in St Louis a few weeks ago… has gone viral!
We had cameos by all of our friends who flew in from New York, the groom’s parents, the imam, a baby, and many others. See if you can spot me! (hint: sometimes my hair is curly, sometimes it’s straight)
When I was in South Africa two months ago, the locals I was hanging out with told me I should read a book by their friend, Azad Essa. Essa is Al-Jazeera journalist whose book Zuma’s Bastard, a hit in South Africa last year, was updated and released by HarperCollins India in April as The Moslems Are Coming. I came back to New York and made quite a spectacle out of myself, bursting out into fits of maniacal giggles while reading it on the subway, in parks, and at countless other very public places. This provocative, witty book is definitely my pick for summer must-read – check out my Q&A with Essa to learn more.
During my epic trip to South Africa last month, I paid a visit to local superstar chef Bruce Robertson‘s lovely beach house, where he hosts two exclusive (and delectable) lunch seatings a day. Here’s my recap of this intimate affair.
