So here’s a peek at the Cosmo India Max Fashion Icon Hunt 2014 National Finale in Delhi that I hopped across to attend. Remember what a blast we had at the Delhi finals? Well this was an even bigger production with all the bells and whistles of a fashion show and then some: think comedy, live tunes, fabulous people and an #OscarSelfie!

Oh and I’m sure you’ve seen the stunning Kalki Koechlin in a staggering Gaurav Gupta gown already, here’s how to get that look! (And don’t you just love GG’s intensely goth Instagram pose?)

I even got to host a table for some of my favorite Delhi peeps, Sujal Shah, Surelee Joseph, Sujata Assomull, Jaideep Sippy and my mommy! (Gautam Kalra & Malini Ramani you were missed!) Bombay bling made it to Delhi that night in the shape of the delightfully OTT Imam Siddique who immediately became besties with my mom :)

Thank you Smashh the Salon for making my hair look this well behaved (even after I subjected it to a 2 hour nap on my flight!)
