Sensual Scent of Spring

Daylight saving starts today, it means Spring is closer than you think…but what is Spring without brilliant riots of colour? This photograph by Tarun Vishwa for ELLE’s July edition 2013 under the watchful eyes of the creative director Prashish More and fashion director Malini Banerji … reminds me of the sensual scent of spring with its gorgeous colours; royal blue, crimson, fuchsia and plum.

I must confess here that I really like Zooey Deschanel. I love the way she can be cute and sexy and funny all at the same time. Having said that, I haven’t really had the time to follow ‘New Girl’ so I don’t know how this picture fits into the series other than the fact that she appears to be a guest at an Indian wedding. However I wasn’t going to let a picture (or two) of Zooey Deschanel in a saree go unposted.

Formula One Saree (2013)

Sorry I’ve not been posting much lately, real life getting in the way I’m afraid, but hopefully I should be posting more frequently from now on. There’s a lot to catch up on so lets get started.

In October 2013 the Formula One Grand Prix ‘circus’ returned to India. Sarees seem curiously appropriate around this most glamorous of motor sports. This is Argentine-Japanese model Jessica Michibata, girlfriend of British driver Jenson Button, at a race day photo call at the McLaren team building. She’s wearing a gorgeous pink Banarasi saree. An elegant and demure look, with her hair tied back, and beautifully draped too. “I wanted to wear something Indian,” she said, “I have always loved the use of colours here.”

In the world that once was

It is as though she was meant to be there in that moment. The cool kiss of the stone steps upon her bare feet as she ascended into this bittersweet anatomy. Remnants of a world that once was. Not her own, but a world she feels. A world in which she belongs.
