Sensuous threads


She is known for her sensuous, flowy kaftans that can accentuate any body type with oodles of elegance. Designer Pria Kataaria Puri is known for her signature lounge and resort wear in India and Middle East region, and as she completes her 16th year in this industry she feels that fashion will always remain her first love.
Juggling her time between Delhi and Mumbai, she feels that for all these years in the industry her passion for fashion overpowered all the challenges that she had to face. She says, “When I look back, I honestly feel I haven’t really faced too many challenges as my love for fashion has been so great. I credit my success to my strong upbringing, my family, positive attitude, strong belief in myself, my work and my team that runs my offices. I feel my greatest challenge was to introduce resort wear in India, whereas globally I introduced the Indian resort wear to the international buyers. My memorable milestone in my career was to meet and design for my favourite pop icon Madonna.”
Pria, who recently styled Priyanka Chopra and Mahie Gill for Apoorva Lakhia’s Zanjeer remake mentions how it was a great experience to work for these style divas. She reveals, “All my film celebs are fun to style, however styling Priyanka Chopra has been both fun and challenging as she has a very strong sense of style. While styling for both Priyanka and Mahie I had to understand and study their characters in the film and design accordingly. For Priyanka her wardrobe is very global, she’s seen sporting high fashion international brands to high sheet brands to specially crafted Indian outfits. Mahie on the other hand plays a divalicous mole – she is sensual throughout and looks very glamourous. She will be seen wearing a lot of resort wear that I designed keeping in mind her look.”
Pria, who is currently working on her next collection for Banglore Fashion Week is also planning to hold a charity event in Geneva coming November. Even though she has a busy schedule, Pria feels her me-time is very important for positive outlook. She adds, “I like travelling and learning about new countries and their cultures, besides skiing and horse riding. My family comes first for me and next is work. I am also a very organised person.”

Monsoon glow
Let’s welcome the monsoons with a nourishing skin regimen. From dry, flaky, to unbearably oily skin, the season has traditionally had its share of nightmares for women and men alike. Infections are on the rise. Give your skin the perfect pampering it deserves with treatments from Kaya skin care.
Purifying tea tree: With the prime ingredient being tea tree oil, made from leaves of the tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) in Australia, this essential oil is rich in antimicrobial and antibacterial elements. It works brilliantly on sensitive skin, leaving it acne-free and glowing.
Rejuve Cocoa: This is another extremely popular as summers inflict upon your skin tanning and severe dehydration. The Rejuve Cocoa is rich in ingredients like Vitamin A and other antioxidants with astringent properties, accompanied by cocoa that deeply moisturises your skin, giving it firmness and glow.

Celebs and their oops moments
Awkward moments are a natural part of everyday life. Though these moments can take you by surprise, when it comes to celebrities, they become all the more

Miley Cyrus: shares her most embarrassing moment: "I was skipping down the corridor at school thinking I looked really cute in my Mary-Kate and Ashley skirt, when I decided to jump. I jumped in the air, my skirt ripped and I fell flat on my face. All of these cute guys who I was trying to impress saw it, and when I looked into the mirror, my head had a bump the size of a golf Ball! I had to go to the nurse and I got in trouble. It was a harsh day!"
Angelina Jolie's absurd moment: Her skin-tight black leather pants split down the back while she was on the red carpet for the London premiere of Beowulf; meanwhile she also stepped in a big wad of gum.

Ashlee Simpson:
During a live television performance on Saturday Night Live, Ash’s band accidentally started playing the wrong song which included the original vocals. Ash reacted by dancing like she was at a hoe-down and ran off stage!

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
