Waris Ahuwalia: Jewelry Designer + Actor
May I please say I have the biggest crush on him. BIGGEST!! I have so far only seen him on the web in the Satorialist or Jak&Jill kind of blogs and in some printed fashion magazines. He was strutting out of the tents with immense speed and I was at the coat check trying to get my coat when I saw him. I dropped my jacket on the floor and ran in front of him. First I asked if he had a minute to spare cause he looked like he was in a hurry and he said sure!! And then I babbled 10 sentences to him which all meant, “I love your style” in different words. And he was incredibly sweet and almost humbled to have heard my fascination with him. I love people who have made something of themselves but don’t loose their ground ever. I wish him all the best with whatever he does in life.
Rachel Roy: Model and Fashion Designer
Spotted at the front row of the Naeem Khan show I walked right upto her and I could almost feel her welcoming eyes. So sweet! I felt like hugging her, but ofcourse I like hugging everyone, and I had to behave so I did. She even wrote down what she was wearing for me in my book while I took pictures of someone else. If I sell her hand written note on ebay, will I make any money? BTW, she is wearing everything from her own line Rachel Roy and a Missoni Jacket.
Karan Johar: Bollywood Movie Director
I think at the entire NY Fashion Week he was the only Bollywood representative. Spotted at the front row of Prabal Gurung’s show I couldn’t help get excited at the prospective of seeing some Prabal stuff in his upcoming movies instead of Manish Malhotra designs and hence I had to go and talk to him. Again he was more than sweet and happily struck a few poses for me. After I took pictures of him and then settled down in my seat [which was right across from him but on the second row] I was thinking to myself, “If I were in India would I have ever gotten a chance to meet him so uninterrupted and casually?” Since I have been out of India for many years now I have no idea. Do you?
