The Enchantress of Bollywood

Doesn’t Aishwarya Rai Bachchan look stunning on the cover of this month’s Elle India?  She looks ethereal here in a dress by Rohit Bal, one of my favourite Indian designers.  Unfortunately, I don’t have a copy of the magazine in Canada to be able to share more. But, I think these pictures speak a thousand words about Ash’s classic beauty.

Bringing Bollywood Home

Bollywood Couple CushionBollywood Lady Cushion

It’s almost Diwali, the festival of light, and these kitschy pillows from Urban Barn are making me smile.  They are perfect for adding a bit of Bollywood glamour to any lounge space. Who doesn’t want Aishwariya Rai or Hrithik Roshan gracing their home?  The sequined pillows show the Bollywood superstars in their decadent costumes from the 2008 Jodhaa Akbar period film . Rekha who ruled Bollywood long before today’s ‘it’ girls is also not forgotten.
