Through the Eyes of TIM WALKERb5675-magdalenaf

Manish Arora delivered an avant garde Indian wedding collection for the bride with an attitude

Two back-to-back fashion weeks that were held recently in the capital – PCJ Delhi Couture Week and India Bridal Week – stand testimony to the fact that couture in India caters largely to the big fat Indian wedding. With the exception of a few designers who showcased some body-hugging gowns or light evening saris both events were high on trousseau and glamour. So couture creations that are meant to be bespoke, customised and hand-crafted “one-of- a-kind” creations were basically runways replete and overflowing with seriously

Costume: Actresses Jane Fonda & Minka Kelly Transform Into American Icons for ‘The Butler’

Jane Fonda in 'The Butler'

From sketch to real life, Jane Fonda evokes former first lady Nancy Reagan (The Weinstein Company)

Lee Daniels’ The Butler” spans eight decades and depicts a spectrum of characters that could make any costume designer’s head spin: from a rural African-American field worker (portrayed by Mariah Carey) to a boozy-yet-stylish ’50s lady (Oprah Winfrey — whose character traverses all of the film’s decades as the wife of longtime White House butler Cecil Gaines) to iconic first ladies including Nancy Reagan (Jane Fonda) and Jacqueline Kennedy (Minka Kelly).

From Fonda to Reagan
In the film, 75-year-old Fonda is in close replicas to the real clothing of ’80s-era Nancy Reagan. “She loved red,” Ruth Carter, costume designer for “The Butler,” told Yahoo! Movies of Reagan. “A very vibrant tomato red — coined as ‘Reagan Red,’” said Carter, who mimicked the designs of Reagan’s favorite designers, including Bill Blass. Carter even replicated a gown Reagan wore to a state dinner.

It’s not only the clothes, but Fonda’s hair — which was coincidentally already in the right cut to play Reagan — and her makeup transformed the Oscar winner into a convincing facsimile of the former first lady.

But that doesn’t mean there wasn’t any drama in assuming the role. Fonda managed to avoid a wardrobe catastrophe, Carter recalled, on her first day of filming: one of Fonda’s costumes went missing — and she was only scheduled to shoot for a few short days. “I was walking on pins and needles.” But Fonda made it work, swapping a costume intended for another scene while she waited for the missing outfit to arrive (and it did, as a frantic Carter actually flew it in). Close call.

Minka Kelly in 'The Butler'

Minka Kelly brings a Jackie Kennedy outfit to life in ‘The Butler’ (The Weinstein Company)

For Minka Kelly to pull it off as the stylish Mrs. Kennedy, Carter knew she had to pay attention to detail. “My main focus was to make sure the pink Chanel suit she wears when the [JFK] assassination happens is perfect,” said the costume designer. “Of course we want Jackie Kennedy’s look to be as iconic as it was in real life.” — >

cuff1_thumb_600x400

First we had the statement necklaces and those have been around for a long time, there are still a bit around but not like in the beginning. But of course they couldn’t be around for a long time, in the fashion industry a thing ( clothes, accessories) will only be able to be around for a short period of time before it gets replaced by something else. And that is what is happening now with the statement necklace and the neck cuff… well sort of. Is the neck cuff going to replace the statement necklace?cuff2_thumb_600x399

 The neck cuffs have been spotted in a lot of collections of top designers like Michael Kors and Céline.
