Since joining MissMalini.com I’ve been to quite a few launches, but none like The Charcoal Project’s launch. It was a starry night, literally, as Bollywood’s finest turned up to support Sussanne Roshan’s dream of opening a one-of-a-kind interiors store. This massive store in Andheri, has two floors with an eclectic selection of products. I would say there are 3 distinct styles – classic, opulent and quirky. So whether you want an understated contemporary chaise or a bright loud statue, you’ll find it here. Personally, I feel that Sussanne has done a great job choosing iconic unique pieces, that will be the focal point for any home. It’s pure luxury and the stars who attended could tell they were amongst good taste.
Surrounded by so many Bollywood stars was a treat (more pix here), almost all of them look stunning in person and I’d dare to say sometimes they lose that charm and essence on the screen! I managed to annoy the crowd just enough to give you lucky readers a video with none other than gushing hubby Hrithik Roshan, a small byte with Sussanne herself and design guru Sandeep Khosla.
Sussanne Roshan looked every bit the belle of the ball in a black A-line dress and black pumps. Being in trend with spring/summer, Priety Zinta and Shilpa Shetty turned up in pink and teal dresses. Katrina Kaif, someone who should never wear make up, because she really doesn’t need it (my only wish – great skin!) wore a floral flowy mini dress with a thin brown belt and cute nude ballet flats. There were just too many stars to look at, spotted: Arjun Rampal, Shahid Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Preity Zinta Aamir Khan, Gauri Khan, Jaya Bachchan, Sohail Khan, Chunky Pandy, Abhu Jani & Sandeep Khosla, Hrithik Roshan, Rakesh Roshan, Shekar Kapur, Shilpa Shetty, Raj Kundra, Natasha & Fardeen Khan, Bhavana Pandey, Maheep Kapoor, Anaita Shroff Adjania and Sussanne Roshan.
