Elizabeth Taylor’s very first wedding dress sold at auction this week for a whopping £122,000. This dress, worn by an 18 year old Elizabeth for her marriage to Conrad ‘Nicky’ Hilton Junior, is a classic Cinderella gown and shows off her teeny tiny waist to perfection.
The Hindustan Times recently held its annual award ceremony to crown the top twenty stylish men and women. A red carpet event attended by the Who’s Who of Delhi society, this was surely the night that everyone opened their wardrobes and declared they had NOTHING decent to wear!
Indian Celebrity, Esha Gupta featured in Manish Malhotra’s show
