Fashion 2013 - Debarati Chatterjee


I am not a Fashionista! Neither do I take pride in being the best dressed in a gathering. I am a novice when it comes to the crazy obsession of dressing up for the 5 days of Durga Puja because I am what my cousins in Kolkata call ‘Probashi’. But what I am, is an admirer of a lady dressed in a classy ethnic wear! I love western wear, Oh I do! But what I lust for is a beautiful silk sari with gorgeous ethnic design in luscious colors with an up-do, ‘mogra’, ‘jhumkis’ and ‘kangan’. Oh the vision! But how often do I get to try the look or see the look living in North America? Maybe 2-3 times in a good year but definitely once! Once on the 2 days of Durga Puja!

I follow the High heel confidential, a fashion blog for the Indian celebrities. So over the past few months I have been collecting photos from their blog that I thought were good looks to try for the coming 2 days of awesomeness.

Not that I am following these to the Z and I don’t expect any of you to either but if you like something and do manage to follow it, rest assured I will be the one giving you those lustful stares in the room.

So, without further delay, here are few of the looks I loved

1. For the Nostalgic women like me who think puff sleeves is the cutest thing ever, below is style sported by Raima Sen. The simple girl next door look with cute side swept knot and ‘Saira Banu’ style flowers pin-up is refreshing and is perfect for a Day Look


2. Bipasha Basu below sporting a sari am not a big fan of! But I love the colors and the hairdo. I love how she styles her look with just the hair, blouse and the big colorful bindi! The colors can change but it’s the style I am drawing your attention to. 


3. My next favorite is this lovely lady Samantha in a beautiful yet simple black kanjeevaram with an extremely contrasting blouse. But look at how beautifully put together the look is. The simple necklace, mogra, round bindi and a beautiful smile. I love how she kept the rest of her look simple so that all you notice is her elegance.

4. The fashion in vogue in the ethnic market is the ‘Lehenga-Sari’. Here are two very different looks appropriate for two very different body types. You choose what suits you but take note of the lovely side swept hair style and the minimal jewelry. Statement earrings/ jhumkis and a lovely smile is doing the trick for these beautiful women.



5. Lovely pastel colors in flowing chiffon and georgettes again with minimal jewelry but interesting hairdo and dramatic blouse cuts, Kajol sure displays a look I would love to see women sport more often. Classy, elegant and yet surprisingly sassy!



6.  And then there are these color block saris with gorgeous blouses for the young at heart and for the ones who can carry these off. Again I would be the first to pay you the compliment you deserve.

7. Now last but not the least, for the few like me who will end up sporting a chudidar or to the more in-fashion people are the below two simple looks but with lovely hairdos

So those were some of my favorite looks and I hope you will like them too and try some.

PS: I did not mention the clutches or the potlis because I am not a good judge of those particular accessories. But what I am good at is paying the compliments where it is due and to appreciate some daring fashion sense.

So, Go Ladies! Dress up and enjoy all the attention! Oh and before I forget, all pictures courtesy

Signing off,

Debarati Chatterjee 



I am from a small town in West Bengal called Rishra where I rarely lived! I have always been a Probashi in love with the idea of Bengal of the literature. I have forever been jealous of people who can think, write and express their thoughts and feelings in Bangla because, though I take eons to read a sentence in Bangla, I rejoice every time I manage to read one and understand it. Otherwise I can speak 4 Indian languages including Telugu. I love reading anything that is NOT non-fiction, philosophy and self-help. I enjoy writing and cooking! Oh and I love rains :)
