The "Sanjana" in Ash is back!

Remember the "Hi, I am sanjana" pepsi ad. Remember how gorgeous that model was. That was the pre-bollywood, pre-missworld Aishwarya Rai. And whatever happened next to her was all a meh, atleast in my head. Because Sushmita Sen happened. And if there's any team, I am Team Sush. I think anyone growing up in the 90s know what I am talking about. This was before there was even a Team Edward or a Team Jacob ( Aah...Kids these days ;)) . So, there was this unintentional Team Ash and Team Sush that happened. Team Ash was more about the looks and Team Sush was more about beauty with brains. And I, like any loyal team member constantly found fault in whatever Aish's next move was. From her acting skills to her we-are-just-friends crap with some of the actors to her turning into an all-out bahu of Bollywood's first family. She was an easy target. I mean, have you seen those sack-looking Anarkalis that she was seen in all the time? BUT, and it's a big BUT, let's pause and take a look at this pic.


Louie's "Fat" girl

I don't watch Louie, but from what I have seen of Louis C.K in interviews, he comes across as a funny guy. I watched this clip that is doing the rounds on the internet and it's being heralded as the most honest and heartbreaking TV scene. Here, have a look.

I just did not see the clip as heartbreaking or heroic. Let me break it down for ya.

First of all, I don't know a single guy who doesn't want to hold hands with a fat girl because she is fat. And let's face it. She is not fat. She is not thin either, but she is not break-the-door-to-get-her-out-of-the-house fat. So, the issue here is not even about 'fat' girls. Because being fat is not abnormal and not an issue unless you are being bullied in highschool. Then my friend, those bullies deserve a whack in their heads.


What would Audrey Hepburn wear?

I remember when being stylish meant being yourself and making use of whatever was available in your closet. I remember that because I used to be one of those people who could put together an outfit without having to consult magazines (I am talking pre-google days here) or follow celebrities. Heck, In fact I thought I had better fashion sense than some bollywood celebrities! And then something happened. I started following fashion trends online, on TV and magazines just to keep a tab on what's happening out there. I didn't realize that I was getting influenced by what I read and what I saw. And as much as I would like to believe that I still stood my own when it came to style, I could see that my outfits were put together keeping in mind what people would think than how I felt wearing them.

Well, I have decided to get back to the basics, to trusting my own instincts when it comes to style. And like I tweeted , "When in doubt, ask yourself what would Audrey Hepburn wear?" .
