#StyleDiaries: Day six: Neha Dhupia for Kingfisher Supermodel Hunt


Kingfisher Supermodel Hunt Day six

We had an early start to the day. So early that the hotel buggy looked like a king-sized bed to me for a brief moment. Then we went over a speedbump, which literally jolted me back to reality.

Kaftan Princess

Even when I don’t know what time of day it is, or where I am because I’m so sleepy, I still know you cannot beat a  kaftan for a Resort 2015 look. And this green number that simply shouts Sue Mergers, is really bringing out Neha’s hard earned Delhi tan.



When the wait for your team is longer than your supermodel legs.

Stylists tip: Belt up a kaftan dress and you have a perfect resort look. 

Neha’s kaftan dress is by Manish Arora.

Evening look(s)

Tonight, we needed to shoot two different evening looks for Neha. I was exhausted, but we had a long night ahead of us.

But first, we had a quick nap:

First look: Stepford wife turns singer extraordinaire

We dressed Neha up in a circle skirt, hoping the flounce would add some bounce to her steps. And, did it. I’m a believer, I tell you.


Stylist’s tip: One can never have too many black and white outfits. Never. A stack of pearls and diamonds never hurt a girl. These are by accessorize.

Makeup tip: And one can never use enough M.A.C. Lady Danger because, Orange lips = joy.

Neha’s outfit is by Shivan and Narresh and actually made in the same fabric as scuba suits. So even as she felt like she was sinking for lack of sleep, she was sinking in style.

Second look: Green and all geared up

After a quick chill session, we got Neha ready for her final photo shoot of the day.. or evening rather. Actually early morning of the day after, because we shot at 5 am. But doesn’t she look fresh as a forest?


A messy updo with smoky eyes are a recipe for instant glam.

Then before we knew it, it was 6 am, and the pumpkin was waiting to take us back to our beds. Did I say pumpkin, I meant buggy!


Neha’s dress is velvet and made by Manish Malhotra.

All looks are styled by Chief pyjama Chola aka Sohaya Misra. Makeup is done by Angeline Joseph.
