*Phew* day two on the Mumbai leg of the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour was action-packed (both on and off ramp, more pix here) I have to say props to the #BPFT PR and organizers for setting up face time for all the press with the designers and their show stoppers. Which is why we got one-on-one’s with Kalki Koechlin for Gavin Miguel, Raveena Tandon for Ramona Narang and Ranveer Singh for Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna (dunno why Anand Kabra didn’t have a show stopper.) Just like we did on Day 1, my fashion expert will give you a run-down shortly but for now here’s my fly-on-the-wall perspective; especially the one thing that cracked me up and the one thing that made my day! Plus all the odds and ends in between that make up a day in the life of a lifestyle bloggerista :)

The press. The press kills me. In the dedicated press room where – before each show the celebrities come and go (talking of anything but Michelangelo) I have watched seasoned TV presenters ask the most inane questions ever! It’s embarrassing but very very funny. Seriously guys, my fellow paparazzi have got to start doing their homework (or if that’s too much to ask) at the very least take a cue from this blog and never repeat any of the following questions…
P.S. Did anybody get my T.S. Elliot Prufrock reference, hmmm? *Lol*
Journo: We are here with Kevin and Kalki, how do you feel Kalki?
Gavin: Er.. that’s Gavin.
Journo: Oh I’m so sorry, Gevin <still not Gavin!> and Kalki, how do you feel Kalki?
Journo: Kalki, so tell us how do you feel? Are you nervous that you might fall?
Kalki: I hope I don’t fall and mess up the show!
Journo: (to Gavin) Do you think she will mess up the show?
(Dear Journo, you did not just ask that question.)
Journo: So tell me Kalki, three actors you would NOT want to walk down the ramp with.
Kalki: Come on now, what kind of question is that?!
Journo: Is your collection Soul-full Gavin? How do you feel in this dress Kalki, like a Goddess?
Kalki & Gavin: *roll eyes*
Questions to Kalki: 13 v/s Questions to Gavin: 0
Journo: Oh extremely sorry Gavin.
Gavin: It’s Bollywood all the way! *Lol* (I don’t even need to be here.)
And YES he said that he and his sister love my blog yaay! Now I have a huge crush on him too :)
