Femina Style Diva PuneA night to remember

MUMBAI: Everyone has their own style. No matter what your look, there’s an inner stylist making decisions for you. Malvika Sitlani took home the top honours at the second edition of Yin Yang Femina Style Diva Pune. Here’s a look at the events of the dazzling evening

The Yin Yang Femina Style Diva Pune, 2013 turned out to be a show that left the audiences wanting more. The event was aimed at unveiling young and aspiring fashionistas, and to assist them to come into their own—stylishly. We were looking for that chic, well-dressed woman who knows the difference between being a trendsetter and a trend follower. Like the first edition, the call for entries received an overwhelming response. Finally, 16 stylish girls were chosen. These fashion-forward contestants were mentored by supermodel-turned ace choreographer, Achla Sachdev, who taught the finalists to hold their own on the ramp with poise and confidence. The 16 contenders were also groomed in articulation by Eva Pavithran, associate editor, Femina.

The first round put the contestants’ creativity to test. They had to style outfits from their own wardrobe. From a skirt made out of a lungi to a gown designed by them, the girls impressed not only the judges but also the invitees who were cheering for them throughout. For round two, the girls walked the ramp with clothes designed especially for them by Pune-based designer Seema Singh. Round three saw the contestants flaunt their accessorising skills to match the gorgeous resort wear designed by Pria Kataria Puri. The finalists wore beautiful gowns designed by Babita Malkani for the last round, and the judges asked them fun style-related questions.

The evening saw amazing performances by Illuminati dance troupe. Stand-up comedian Rohan Joshi had everyone in splits and Usha Uthup brought the house down with her amazing vocal skills. Our esteemed panellists consisted of actor Jaqueline Fernandes, director Abhishek Kapoor, actor Yami Gautam, Tanya Chaitanya, editor, Femina, Dr Madhu Chopra of Studio Aesthetique Jitesh Pillaai, editor Filmfare, Hrishikesh CEO & Director Yin Yang a project by Pashankar group and Vishal Singh GM Hyatt Pune Kalyani Nagar.

Tanya Chaitanya, editor, Femina says, “Femina Style Diva provides a great platform for young women who love playing dress up and have an innate sense of style. They may not all end up in the fashion industry, as we had an interesting mix of contestants this year—from physiotherapists and singers to dance choreographers and investment bankers. Yet, they were all given an incredible opportunity to showcase their own personal style. We at Femina believe we’re making the world a stylish place.”

The event was attended by the whos who of pune including designers Nivedita Sbaoo, Moushmi Sanas, Nafisa Hashim, author Sudha Menon, fashion photographer Sameer Belvalkar, Pranav Ganbote, Minoti Makkim, Santosh Deshmukh & Rishi Nath from Piaggio, Mr. Anand Bhede from RB Group India, Rekha Dubey CEO of Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital, Sheetal Biyani, owner of Sheetal Creations, Paloma Ganguly of Bikram Yoga, Dr. Santosh Katekari of ADHI , Cawas Pundole of Ct Pundole ,Tina Varma director Charus Advertising, Chandrakala Sanap renowned makeup artist, Rohit Navale, director, Sinhgad Institutes, Sanyogita Ramanan of Gold’s Gym and many more.
