I feel like I’ve said this before but you know you’ve arrived when the entire glittering world shows up to your boutique launch in Juhu, right Vikram Phadnis?! In fact he’s teamed up with my sorta namesake Malini Agarwalla from Malaga (she designs bags) and last Saturday they decked out 3000 sq feet in his favorite shades of gold and beige  stocked with signature lines of Indian formal and bridal collections along with exquisite bags, footwear and accessories from Malaga. This venture also debuts Vikram’s exclusive prêt collection for men. (The boutique even houses an in-store wedding consultation studio in association with Dream Kraft.)
Spotted: Amitabh Bachchan, Abbas Mastan (yup, they seriously dress like that*), Sonu Nigam, Amrita Rao, Sridevi (in Neeta Lulla) and Boney Kapoor, Katrina Kaif (in Vikram Phadnis) with Alvira, Govinda with Narmada, Arshad Warsi & Maria Goretti, Fardeen Khan, Harman Baweja, Ramesh Taurani, Arjun Kapoor, Hussain & Tina, Malaika & Arbaaz Khan, Rocky S., Mandira Bedi (always looking wow), Rohit Roy and Divya Datta.

Psst! Looks like Malaika Arora Khan was wearing a gown that almost identically resembled Shilpa Shetty’s gold wedding reception outfit. What is it about that girl that makes the diva’s wanna do a ditto?

Sonu Nigam

Also wtf just happened to Sonu Nigam? He appears to be pulling a Benjamin Button all on his own, but in his case going from half-way decent (albeit slightly geeky) looking desi dude to the life-size version of a member of fraggle rock! Lol.
