Milan Fashion Week, which culminated on February 26 this year, is inarguably among the 4 biggest fashion weeks globally. Four of our desi fashion influencers made their mark at the event this time, wowing everyone with their jaw dropping looks.

Here’s a quick look at our fashionista influencers who made heads turn at Milan Fashion Week.

Masoom Minawala

Masoom Minawala, our very own global influencer who is a regular at the biggest fashion weeks, was in attendance and slayed each look with her distinctive style. These are her three signature looks we were specially floored by:

Who could have thought anyone can come even close to the way Kendal Jenner carries a cut out black dress! Although Masoom Minawala’s outfit by Roberto Cavalli is far more demure in comparison to Kendall’s bold edition, it’s definitely an absolute showstopper.


This take on a power suit by QUA is giving what it is supposed to give – a total boss babe vibe! There is only one thing we don’t agree here. Masoom captioned it as “Female Harvey Spector”. Nope, she is a total Jessica Pearson in this one. (Trivia – For those who don’t know – Jessica Pearson is the boss to Harvey Spector in the web series Suits)

Bow-gate as DietSabya said will blow up in 2024 and Masoom seems to subtly agree (wink wink!) and we cannot stop gushing over how fabulous this ensemble by Mach&Mach looks on her.

Pavitra Sagar

Pavitra Sagar, the face of StyleMuse, is one of the popular lifestyle and fashion personalities of India, spotted at various fashion events in looks that truly set her apart. Pavitra Sagar attended multiple shows during the Milan Fashion Week and wore outfits by Indian designers, styled with accessories that are an absolute conversation starter. Our favourite three looks of hers from the Milan Fashion Week can be simple categories as Maximalism at its best.

In this Deme by Gabrielle look, it looks like it took a village to get her ready– in a good way. It is absolutely chaotic, the make-up, the shoes and don’t miss the bag. Didn’t we say earlier accessories that were a conversation starter? As they say, only she can make this Werk!


What better way to represent India than in a Sari. Pavitra wore this Sari Inspired 431-88 dress by Shweta Kapur and styled it with an exaggerated sequin jacket. (We won’t dare compare it, but it does come close to a look from Rekha’s modelling sequence from Khoon Bhari Maang.)


Pavitra sagar - the reelstars

She said it herself and we surely agree. In another maximalist look, Pavitra is making it her signature style. Black & Gold works, ALWAYS & Pavitra is making More & More is never enough, believable. This look is not inspired by MOBWIFE aesthetic. If you ask us, we will say this is an exact representation.

Juhi Godambe

Can be counted among the OG Fashion Influencers of India. Juhi has been attending fashion weeks year after year and taking the fashion level a notch higher each time.

Give her a skimpy grey metallic lil number and black boots and watch her turn the streets into a fashion runway and strut like a supermodel. She attended the Diesel show in this look.

Dressed in this Tanieya Khanuja number, Juhi exudes Parisian aesthetic. The fit is amazing, the matching of the dress, shoes and the bag is a perfect amalgamation that can be done by only a fashion veteran. Isn’t it giving a Emily in Paris vibe?

Cool, Effortless Yet Chic & Elegant. Juhi attended Bally’s show dressed by the brand and she looks ready to take on any and everything. Be it attending a fashion show or making a quick run for coffee and croissant. 

Masoom Minawala, Pavitra Sagar and Juhi Godambe, each of these ladies stepping on the fashion scene at International Fashion Weeks are not only strengthening their presence but always giving a platform for established as well as up and coming home grown brands of India. That’s why we couldn’t be proud enough!

The 77th Cannes Film Festival has officially begun. With each passing year, the globally recognized film festival is not only eyed by cine enthusiasts but has also, in a way, become the biggest fashion runway. The biggest brands across the globe mark their presence along with their ambassadors. Furthermore, the French Riviera acts as a perfect backdrop for designers. Moreover, muses to showcase brilliance through couture, hair, and makeup. Rahi Chadda, a recognizable name in the luxury segment, is a Cannes regular. He is the first brown male ambassador for DIOR Beauty.

There are some people who pioneer in carving a niche for themselves. However, taking it ahead to make a segment for a much wider audience to try. Rahi has been this person when it comes to fashion. The flair with which he carries every outfit that he wears only depicts how naturally it comes to him.

Here are some of Rahi’s looks from Cannes over the years that have stood out and showcased his fashion prowess:


Rahi Chadda walked the red carpet for the opening of Cannes this year. Moreover, he continued to slay hard with his fashion game.

Dressed in a monochromatic look by YSL, Rahi turned heads on the red carpet. The look styled by Alioune ( @aliounebf ) is polished, the glam (Dior Beauty) is on point, and the jewels (Damiani) are jaw-dropping. He continues to highlight inclusivity every time he attends global events.

For his second appearance, he is dressed in LUAR. This look works as he is attending the premiere of the Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga World movie. Besides, The look is suited for this crazy, edge-of-the seat kind of movie. (If only it delivers as hard as Rahi’s looks.)


Rocking red on a red carpet is not for everyone, but Rahi clearly knows what he is doing. Dressed in Homolog Paris, Rahi Chadda styled by Adele Cany (@adelecany) went all out to make this look the talking point. The suit with frill extensions and embellished detailing, matched with the standout neck piece. Furthermore, worked in sync for him, and he took it a notch higher with the hairdo. 

If there is something you will always find in his closet, it is flared pants. Furthermore, we were not surprised when Rahi chose this look by Roberto Cavalli. This would have been an easy pick for him.


You cannot go wrong with Maison Valentino. Rahi looked fresh and radiant in this all-white number. The sheer top with floral detailing is perfect for a day in the French Riviera. This look is understated yet impeccable.

After he gave the perfect day glam look, he stepped out with a perfect night look as well, dressed again in Maison Valentino. He captioned this look “We’re serving representation, inclusivity, and fashion,” and we couldn’t agree more. He owns this look hands down, and Asians across the globe would be elated. Besides, to have him be the face of Asians at the prestigious event.

Rahi is a Cannes regular now, and with his looks, we sense a pattern that is true to his aesthetics. However, He makes sure to give us one out-and-out chic look and one strong look. Both of which are buzzworthy, experimental, and portray his personal style. The pieces he wore depict his love for embroidery and textures. He loves to have fun with fashion and takes his part in representing the community very seriously. However, which shows in each of his appearances.

Influencers Who Slay The Stylish Mom Look!



masoom minawala pregnancy - the reel stars

“There’s no way I’m going to go shopping in the maternity aisle” said Rihanna when she got pregnant. She rocked some of her best looks showing off her baby bump. Post-baby delivery as well, Rihanna continued to slay in her fashion game. There’s still a lot of stigmas around how a to-be mom or new mom should dress up. Thanks to our ReelStars who have embraced motherhood recently & who are to-be moms, they are paving the way for making the mom’s life look stylish too. It doesn’t have to be a stereotype. Yes, it has to be functional & comfy but it doesn’t have to be uncool. With Mother’s Day around the corner, here are some of the ReelStars who are loved for their fashion game as they continue to serve the perfect “stylish mom look”.

Aayushi Bangur

If we had to categorise Aayushi’s style it would be comfy & chic, & not necessarily in the same order. Aayushi recently celebrated the 2nd birthday of her daughter and it is noticeable that she continues to stay chic. Besides, we love the matchy-matchy outfits of this mother-daughter duo.

Urmi Daga

Urmi is a true fashionista. Her Insta-feed is filled with pictures that can easily be a mood board for varied mom styles. Be it Desi Girl vibes or Pinteresty, she never disappoints.

 Alanna Pandey

If the WEST has the Kar-Jenners, we have Alanna when it comes to giving unmatched aesthetics. From her wedding to her pregnancy announcement, everything has been captured & made to mom look absolutely insta-worthy. She continues to globetrotter with her husband & continues to smash the maternity fashion scene. 

Natasha Luthra

She embraces her every curve & looks determined to give her followers multiple stylised options which they can opt for in their journey. From Suits to sequins to saris, she has donned everything with so much oomph.

The OG Desi International Influencer who doesn’t seem to catch a break, after strutting through fashion weeks. Furthermore, she toured for her new book launch “She’ll Never Make It” (Can’t wait to read it).

She recently announced she is expecting her 2nd baby & it should have come with a disclaimer. Moreover, because we are sure it is going to be a fashion-filled riot of looks. Some of her 1st pregnancy fashion looks are still unrivalled.

Mothers are all-rounder. Everyone around her has portrayed her like that & whether she wants it or not, she likes it or not, she goes with the flow of sticking to everyone’s expectations & pushes to be an all-rounder & almost every time she makes it happen & we (conveniently) believe it. She doesn’t have to. 

It’s 2024, and thanks to pop culture & influencers sharing their experience openly. However, the message is reaching a much wider audience that moms don’t have to do it all.
