There are two tell tale signs  at Lakme Fashion Week 2013 that show you are not from Bombay. First – when photographers are going crazy scrambling to get a picture of someone you dont recognise:

You cannot for the life of you recognise the socialite or industrialist, or P3 personality! So yr all like:


The second tell tale sign is when you see Bollywood, and everyone around is just non chalant and all , you are like “OMMGGGG I dieee”.

Which is exactly what happened to me. But i mustered up the courage to actually go and talk to some of these gorgeous ladies and here is what they had to say.

Neha Dhupia is definitely the camera’s darling. She poses, she smiles, she answers questions, she poses again ! I loved her makeup yesterday!!!

So i went to her and said:

Me : “Hi Neha, Im the official blogger for Lakme Fashion Week 2013 Winter Festive. Can i get a quick pic?”

Neha : “Sureee . Sit right here. But who will click? “- She gestures to a person sitting behind her “Oh Hes a photographer he will click”.

Me: “Okay so P&B wants to know what is your beauty secret? How come your skin is always so glowy?”

Neha “Drink lots of water. Just stay hydrated”

Me: “Noooo please dont say that. All my readers specifically didn’t want that answer”

Neha: “Umm ok, then drink a glass of wine. It puts a flush on your cheeks and a smile on your lips”

Ok. I tried.

Beauty Look for Neha : Dewy Foundation, lots and lots of smokey grey eyeshadow both under the lower lash line and on the eyelid., Peach pink blush and pale pink lipstick
