Friday - - Editor’s Letter -

The stun­ning Gigi Ha­did made her de­signer de­but at Tommy Hil­figer’s New York Fash­ion Week and I was there to see it first hand. And guess who else I spot­ted at the event? Gigi’s BFF Tay­lor Swift look­ing stun­ning in Tommy Hil­figer and in­cred­i­ble thigh-high red boots. Fash­ion Ed­i­tor, Lindsay Judge I was in Meena Bazaar last week­end for some gold slip­pers to ac­com­pany my wed­ding out­fit (not my wed­ding but a very close friend’s). I’m trav­el­ling to Europe for the two-day ex­trav­a­ganza. It’s not my first In­dian cer­e­mony, but it’s the first time I’ve worn tra­di­tional at­tire, so this is go­ing to be a red car­pet event. Out­fit is pressed, phone is charged – so watch out In­sta­gram! Mark Setch­field, Art Ed­i­tor My best friend in­vited me over to her house for Onam cel­e­bra­tions. Fol­low­ing tra­di­tion, a beau­ti­ful flower car­pet adorned the en­trance. Dressed in south In­dian tra­di­tional at­tire, we sat on the floor to have lunch - rice, dal and ghee, an ar­ray of veg­gie dishes in­clud­ing an aro­matic sam­bar and plan­tain wafers - served on a ba­nana leaf. For dessert, a la­dle of warm Payasam. The feast was so de­li­cious I had two serv­ings of ev­ery dish. Teena Pun­jwani, Deputy Art Ed­i­tor
