Toni & Guy "Hair Meet Wardrobe" Launch Event & my Outfit for the night

The last few days passed by in a blur...Some moments distinctly etched in my brain, few are vague. The one thing I am most certain of is that the Toni & Guy event was beyond amazing! I have never seen a promotion on this big scale and an event where you truly enjoy and not just hold wine in one hand and make some awkward small talks and shake hands. It was a night of warm hugs, meeting wonderful people, celebrating, and enjoying to our heart's content! Now, let me clarify this in the beginning only, the event was much more fun for us and here's why: It happened in Mumbai!

A few weeks ago when we received a personalized invitation to the Toni & Guy Launch event in Mumbai, we took it as one of those misguided and less informed PR's mails, who are not aware that we reside in Delhi. That happens a lot! We humbly RSVP'd in negative only to receive another email which stated that the PR company and their client Toni & Guy will be hosting us for the event. And from that moment till now, this PR company has surprised and pleased us at every turn.

We were flown out to Mumbai and made to stay at a five star hotel, Taj Land's End. From booking a cab to and fro, to providing all sorts of luxury and comfort during our stay, the brand and the PRs have left a very impressive image on us. What added a cherry on the cake was when we got to know that we were the only bloggers they had hosted from Delhi! That is kinda big deal for us and we are really thankful for even getting considered the best among so many amazing bloggers from Delhi! Now, all that being said, let's talk about the event itself...

The most celebrated British Hair Brand TONI & GUY HairMeetWardrobe finally launched in India and how! The event happened in Mumbai in Taj Land's End Hotel in the most fashionable way possible.

The Brand Ambassador of Toni & Guy, who is probably the youngest brand ambassador of all times (and dare I say, super funny and cute as hell!), Mark Hampton is one of the hottest names to emerge into the session styling limelight in years. Vogue Italia, Harpers Bazaar, POP, plus a host of designers from Vivienne Westwood Red Label to Todd Lynn have tapped into his unique creative vision for their editorial pages and global catwalk shows. Edgy, cool and always three steps ahead of the rest of the style crowd, his rapid ascent up the rungs of fashion is down to his ability to carve out looks that combine an urban street vibe with a couture finish, taking designer inspirations firmly in hand and perfectly matching hair with wardrobe. Mark lives the TONI & GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe philosophy of Dressing from the Head Down and he intrinsically knows what will work to make a complete look.

The Official Fashion Stylist for the brand was none other than Manish Arora. No introduction needed here! [ And in case, you have been living under a rock and you DO need an introduction of this most celebrated and famous Indian Designer then here: He is the most celebrated and famous Indian Designer! And oh yes, he has worked with Paco Rabanne and has done several shows in Paris and is my favourite!]

Three Indian fashionistas – the glamorous Malaika Arora Khan, classic beauty Soha Ali Khan and casual yet chic Anusha Dandekar walked the red carpet in three timeless looks curated by Mark Hampton. Each of these divas embodied the theme of a chic TONI & GUY HairMeetWardrobe range, namely - Glamour, Classic and Casual.

Anusha sported a casual top knot (which you all know is my favorite go-to hairdo!), Soha wore elegant side-swept waves and Malaika looked dazzling with her glam playful curls! These girls were full of energy at the event and combined with witty Mark Hapton and sweet Manish Arora, kept the crowd giggling and clapping all the time!!


The host of the event, Shibani Dandekar, was a delight for the sore eyes and looked so sexy that she "almost" stole the show from these three celebs! Kudos to her makeup and hair stylist as well the drop-dead gorgeous Manish Arora S/S'10 dress she flaunted!


Themed on the concept of ‘HairMeetWardrobe,’ and the three timeless looks – Casual, Classic and Glamour - ace choreographer Shiamak Davar, beautifully brought to life the brand’s philosophy through a themed musical performance. At the musical, Anusha, Soha and Malaika performed as showstoppers for their respective themes.


The dance troupe of Shiamak Davar did an astounding job and we were mesmerized during the whole performance. The musical performance was titled "Life of a Fashionista" and it portrayed the same brilliantly!


What followed after all the partying was dinner and dessert...well, we skipped the dinner for desserts and why wouldn't we when the dessert table look like this filled with all the delectable delicacies you can ever imagine! From Apple Crumble, Chocolate and Red Velvet cupcakes to Macaroons, Kiwi Tarts, Chocolate mousse and even candies and gummy bears, everything was amazing!

That's how our first course looked...and the second as well!

My Outfit for the event:


After a little pondering over which look I wanted to flaunt on the night out of Casual, Classic and Glamour... I chose Glamour as I love my curls, smoky eyes and a sexy body hugging dress. Always have, always will! It's kinda my fail-proof choice for night events...I wore my new Steve Madden Wedges so that I will be comfortable throughout the night and these babies didn't fail me all night...

Here's to one of the most memorable nights! Cheers!
