An iconic French designer who gave the world elastic strips of fabric knitted together to make girdle-tight dresses or the sultry Bandage dresses, Hervé Leroux has passed away at the age of 60. He is famously known for his legendary Hervé Léger fashion house and the inventor of the fashion style which has been adorned on the red carpet by glamorous divas of the entertainment and fashion industry.

It first debuted on the runway in the fall of 1995 worn by the likes of Karen Mulder, Cindy Crawford, and Eva Herzigova, the original pieces then were not fully designed the way we see them as body-con dresses today. Later in 1998 when Max Azria and Co. acquired the company they went on a quest to find the vintage collection through ebay sales and private parties to create the exclusive piece that so many of us flaunt today.

Bandage dresses are staple as LBD’s in the wardrobe so much so that it is an excuse to show-off and flatter those feminine curves!

The Legacy of Space Domination – Star Trek Beyond

Star Trek Beyond

The alien bashing crew has arrived with yet another complex masterpiece that has blown away the young and old audiences alike. Star Trek Beyond the highly anticipated sci-fi franchise legacy has finally arrived in India. Studio Talk has exclusively pioneered the promotion of this delectable series with engaging activities and created a new age buzz among the Indian cinegoers to lap up this space age madness. Caught between deep space adventures vs. stellar affinity the spectators are loving the #StarTrekinIndia experience and enjoying the outer space augmentation.

ip

The series is the first sci-fi directorial venture of Justin Lin; the movie packs an admirable punch of guns and galore with the space age twist just like his previously directed action packed mayhems on the big screen. His crafty ability to shoot insane dialogue-heavy scene, innovative action sequences, and the knack of delivering a daring spectacle out of the cast makes the movie a highly successful must watch of the season. The tragic passing away of Anton Yelchin a month before the movies release have not affected the popularity among the scores of fans who have waited this long to relish the space vision of the Enterprise, his legacy will live on forever etched in the minds of millions.

Star Trek Beyond Attraction

The ruddy task taken on by the Enterprise to throw all intergalactic forces threatening to cause a galaxy pandemonium works bombastically in their favour. The musical score is fitting and badass especially the track Sabotage which directly portrays the essence of the storyline. Among the cast we have the eye-candy Chris Pine, the sultry Zoe Saldana who can sizzle on screen with her presence. The surprise package is newcomer Idris Elba as Krall the reptilian evil mind who contradicts the very foundations of the Federation. Each of the characters essays his portion with ease and aplomb.

This new age cinematic cult promises a dastardly plot waiting to unfold in the realms of above and beyond. It captures the imagination of every Star Trek fan and deviates from the traditional story- telling adding a much richer interstellar fusion of emotions and exploit.

One McCainlicious Soiree !

Karisma Kapoor at McCain Snack Party

Childhood is always a crazy phase and even crazier are the memories of wanting to be like your favourite actress. I have always admired Karisma Kapoor’s style and grace and imitating her came naturally, I even had a pinafore dress stitched by my mum which had a huge heart saying ‘Dil Tho Pagal Hai’ (Imagine! I proudly wore it on the streets much to the amusement of the passerby’s).

Now that I have grow out of that mad phase I still remain her ardent fan and plus a die hard foodie so when I got the invite for the McCain Snack Party it was like a match made in heaven. There I was in full attendance at the Hyatt Regency, Mumbai on the 15th of December. A special thank-you to Indiblogger team for making my dream come true.

McCain Snack Party

The evening was a fun-filled experience; emcee Nikhil Arora had everyone in splits with his acting and mimicry skills. The audience regaled themselves in the lavish atmosphere by tasting unique and easy McCain recipes cooked by Chef Tushar (did you know you could dish out a lip-smacking dessert with French fries).

To those with a sweet tooth here is the recipe for the French fries dessert:
Ingredients:
1 pac McCain French Fries
2 tablespoons Honey
2 tablespoons Maple Syrup
2 tablespoons Chocolate Syrup
Dry Fruits for garnish
Method:
Deep fry the French fries in oil. Sauté with honey, maple syrup, and chocolate syrup in a pan till they turn crispy. Garnish with dry fruits and serve hot.

On Stage with Karisma Kapoor at McCain Snack Party

Of course the highlight of the evening was the photo session with Karisma Kapoor and we were pleasantly surprised by the framed memory we received at the end of the event. Not to mention the buffet treat that awaited us, all in all it was an unforgettable soirée which I am going to cherish my whole life.

I know we may look like a bunch of jobless promoters who love self-adulation on social platforms but trust me if that comes with attending cool events like a star and meeting inspirational people then I’m a Proud Blogger! BNLF (Blog Now Live Forever) was an amazing experience, imagine being amidst the crème de la crème of the blogging scene in India and realizing that you are actually sane in following your passion for writing. Earlier my mother used to think that I could never make a living out of writing but after attending the BNLF event (she managed to sneek in during the last session when the Legend Bruce Dickinson was on stage and even clicked the above snap!) she says “My God! you people are celebrities!”. Such is the power of Blogging my Mom is now my Fan!

BNLF Mumbai

This magnum opus stage actually rocked an opening concert from the Indiblogger band Blunder in the Code which obviously set the jive mood with Another Brick in the Wall- Pink Floyd. Then came the inspirational sessions from Indian as well as international delegates. These were not actual lecturing sessions but they were laced with humorous experiences and anecdotes from Purba Ray, Anshul Tiwari, Arnab Ray, Kanan Gill, Preeti Shenoy, Jeff Bullas, Christoph Trappe, and Bruce Dickinson.
