Isha Ambani sangeet will see dance performance by BFF Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra will be performing at Isha Ambani's (R) sangeet in December this year.

Priyanka Chopra and Isha Ambani are the best of friends. Isha was part of Priyanka’s bachelorette party in Amsterdam earlier this year, and before that, Priyanka and her fiance Nick Jonas were at Akash Ambani’s engagement party in Mumbai.

In September this year, Priyanka was among the very few guests who were at the Ambanis’ party for Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s engagement at Lake Como in Italy.

Now, buzz has it that Priyanka Chopra will be performing at Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s sangeet, that is to take place in December this year.

Filmfare quoted a source as saying that Priyanka’s performance will be part of a group and that they have already begun preparing for the big day.

Mukesh and Nita Ambani’s daughter Isha is getting married to Ajay and Swati Piramal’s son Anand in December this year and the families have already begun the celebrations.

Isha Ambani kicked off her wedding celebrations with a dandiya night over the weekend.

Before that, the Ambanis offered the first invitation card of daughter Isha’s wedding with Anand at the Siddhivinayak temple in Mumbai last month.


On Tuesday (October 30), the Ambani and Piramal families announced in a statement that Isha and Anand are tying the knot in Mumbai on December 12 this year.


Isha and Anand’s pre-wedding festivities will take place on December 8 and 9 in Udaipur. The Ambani and Piramal families will partner with with artisans and craftsmen to integrate local culture and traditions into the festivities.

The Ambanis and Piramals are throwing a lavish two-day party for their close friends and family members in Udaipur on December 8 and 9. Several Bollywood stars are expected to perform at the two-day festivities. Reports also say that American pop sensation Beyonce will entertain guests at the sangeet ceremony.

Anand Piramal proposed to Isha Ambani at Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra earlier this year

In September this year, Isha and Anand celebrated their engagement over three days at the picturesque Lake Como in Italy. The Ambanis and Piramals hosted 600 guests from all over the world at the lavish three-day parties in Italy this year.


Isha and Anand are celebrating their pre-wedding ceremonies with their friends and families in Udaipur on December 8 and 9.

On December 12 this year, the grand wedding is to take place in Mumbai. The Ambani residence, Antilia, will most likely be the venue for the couple’s wedding.


A statement from Mukesh and Nita Ambani and Ajay and Swati Piramal on October 30 evening read:

“We are delighted to share that the marriage of Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal will take place in the residence of Shri Mukesh Ambani and Smt. Nita Ambani in Mumbai with family members and close friends on 12th December, 2018. The ceremonies will be performed in accordance with Indian traditions, customs and culture.

“During the weekend prior to the wedding, the Ambani and Piramal families will host their friends and family in Udaipur, where they are partnering with artisans and craftsmen to integrate local culture and traditions into the festivities.

“Both families seek the blessings and good wishes of everyone for Isha and Anand as they start their journey of togetherness.”


The Ambani and Piramal families have been friends for over four decades now. Isha and Anand were childhood friends who fell in love with each other. Mukesh and Nita Ambani and Ajay and Swati Piramal’s friendship dates back to the 70s. It was at the Piramal house where Mukesh Ambani courted Nita.


Kendall Jenner tops Forbes’ list of best-paid models again

1. Kendall Jenner: US$22.5 million. She has contracts with adidas, Calvin Klein and Estee Lauder. 2. Karlie Kloss: US$13 million. The new host of reality TV show Project Runway has deals with Estee Lauder, adidas and Swarovski. 3. Rosie Huntington-Wh

Kendall Jenner drew flak earlier this year when she said she was not like other models who said yes to any runway job. Her counterparts in the industry said they needed work to pay the bills.

But her decision to be selective and pace herself has not hurt her earning power.

For the second year in a row, Jenner tops Forbes magazine’s list of best-paid models, with US$22.5 million (S$31 million).

Her income is almost double that of Karlie Kloss, at No. 2.

Chrissy Teigen and Rosie Huntington-Whitely are tied at No. 3 in the list which computes earnings between June 1 last year and June 1 this year.

The list is peppered with well-known names even as The Fashion Spot gave the thumbs-up to the fashion industry’s efforts to embrace diversity and inclusiveness.

For instance, 27.9 per cent of the models who sashayed down last year’s fall runways were women of colour, the highest proportion since the publication started to monitor the data 21/2 years ago.

The industry has also opened doors to plus-size and transgender models on the runways.

But the runway is still a relatively small platform to take flight, earnings-wise.

Pundits say the names on Forbes’ top 10 list fly higher because of their ability to land contracts outside of runway work, with a big lift coming from their mega social media presence which appeals to advertisers.

“It’s easier to make runways more diverse because you’re casting anywhere from 25 to 50-plus models for a show, versus maybe a handful at most who would get cast for campaigns,” Ms Tyler McCall, deputy editor at Fashionista, told the Broadly lifestyle portal.

“Runways very often do not pay at all, or pay in something called ‘trade’ – which just means the brand gifts the models clothes for labour.

“So while it’s easier to have progress on the runway, that’s not going to result in any big pay cheques. Those ad jobs and contracts from big paying companies still by and large go to thin, white women.

“To make the top earners’ list more diverse, advertisers would have to start looking outside the typical pool of models (usually ones who are already pretty famous or Instagram famous) for projects and long-term partnerships.”

But it is doubtful if advertisers are willing to make such switches any time soon.

This year’s top 10 list saw Adriana Lima, Ashley Graham and Liu Wen missing the cut, with all three earning just below Forbes’ US$8 million cut-off.


Unhealthy Lifestyle May Up The Risk Of Diabetes; Diet Tips To Stay Healthy

Unhealthy Lifestyle May Up The Risk Of Diabetes; Diet Tips To Stay Healthy

According to a study published in The BMJ, night shifts clubbed with an unhealthy lifestyle can put you at particularly high risk of type-2 diabetes. It is well established that unhealthy lifestyle behaviour like smoking, a poor diet and little exercise, and being overweight or obese increase the risk of type-2 diabetes. Shift work, especially night shift work, has also been associated with a greater risk of type-2 diabetes. However, the researchers believe this to be the first study to look at the combined impact of an unhealthy lifestyle and rotating night shift work on risk of type-2 diabetes.

For this study, working rotating night shift work was defined as working at least three-night shifts per month, in addition to day and evening shifts that month. Unhealthy lifestyle was defined using four major factors: being overweight, being a smoker, doing less than 30 minutes of exercise per day, and having a poor diet.

Over 22-24 years of follow-up, 10,915 of the 1,43,410 nurses reported having a diagnosis of type-2 diabetes. For every five years of working rotating night shifts, the nurses were almost a third (31 percent) more likely to have been diagnosed with type-2 diabetes.


9 Things To Buy On Black Friday That Will Save You Money

Most of us are pretty irrational when it comes to our spending habits. We don’t think twice about small daily purchases — but if a price tag crosses a certain threshold, we start to feel uncomfortable about our buying decision.

This mindset is not good for your bank account. Small purchases are usually low-value and have a very short gratification period. Larger purchases, while a bigger investment, usually pay for themselves and continue to improve our lives over time.

With all of the holiday sales starting, now is a great time to start thinking harder about the things you buy.

This Black Friday I challenge you to rate purchases in terms of value and long-term return. Avoid picking up a bunch of cheap things just because they’re a “great deal” and go for items that will improve your life and save you money next year. Here are nine examples of purchases that check both boxes and are even better buys on Black Friday.

1) Restaurant Gift Cards

You probably don’t have every weekend planned out for 2019 but one thing I can guarantee you’ll do is eat at your favorite restaurant.

On Black Friday, many restaurants offer a bonus gift card when you purchase a certain denomination (you’ll see deals like buy a $100 gift card and get an extra $20). This is a great way to lower your food spend in 2019 without changing your eating habits. Just check the fine print as some “bonus” gift cards will need to be spent by a certain date.


2) Fitness Equipment with Live Classes

Fitness classes are a great way to stay in shape. But they can get expensive. A spin class costs $20 on average, and that price can be even higher at some studios. Attending class three times per week means you’re likely spending at least $250 per month or $3,000 per year on spin class.

If attending classes in person isn’t a priority for you, then purchasing an at-home solution can help you meet both your fitness and financial goals.

Fitness equipment with live classes, like a Peloton bike, are often viewed as fancy and expensive but when you break down the costs, they are usually much cheaper. Peloton’s 0% financing options currently allow you to pay $58 per month for their equipment and $39 per month for their membership. That means your all-in cost is about $100 per month — or less than half of what you’d pay at a studio.

3) Blender

That post-workout smoothie from the shop next to your gym might be great for your health but it’s destroying your food budget. Splurge on a fancy blender instead and make your own at home to seriously cut costs.

Even a top of the line blender like a Vitamix (starting at $289.95) will pay for itself in a few months if a smoothie stop is part of your regular routine. As a bonus, owning this new appliance may also inspire you to make your own almond milk or soups and further reduce your food spend in 2019.

4) Cooking Equipment and Meal Kits

Millennials are known for our love of dining out but while fast casual restaurants and delivery services are extremely convenient, they’re often not great for our health or wallets.

Learning how to cook a few of your favorite dishes well can save you tons of money and calories. Plus it’s a pretty useful life skill to have.

A great way to get started on your cooking journey is to opt into a meal-kit delivery service like Sunbasket or Blue Apron, both of which are currently offering $60 off. Their easy-to-follow recipes and home delivery make cooking a breeze for even the most novice of chefs. And if you need basic cooking equipment to get started, there are countless Black Friday deals you can take advantage of.

5) Wardrobe Staples

The avalanche of promotional Black Friday emails from retailers have already started. Most people open those emails, spot a few things they like, and make an impulse purchase. When the item arrives, they maybe wear it once or twice and then forget about it because it wasn’t practical or something that they even really wanted.

Just because something is on sale doesn’t mean you should buy it. (Repeat that three times.) Instead, take advantage of low prices by buying high quality wardrobe staples that will constantly be in rotation and can handle the wear.

An easy way to determine if an item is worth buying is its cost per use. Divide the cost by the number of times you think you’ll wear the outfit in a year.

6) Coffee or Espresso Machine

If you love your morning Starbucks run, this is not for you. But if you get annoyed every time you see a $5 latte listed on your credit card statement, then investing in a top quality coffee or espresso machine can save you a ton of money.

You can replicate exactly what the barista is doing at your favorite coffee shop, but for a fraction of the cost. And since you control the inputs, you can even get your daily brew to the point where it tastes exactly how you want it to.

7) Sports Equipment

Repeatedly renting sports equipment like a paddleboard or ice skates can get expensive. If there’s a hobby you enjoy that involves equipment rental, tally up how much you’ve spent on your rentals this year. Chances are that if you rent often, it may be cheaper to buy. And owning may incentivize you to indulge in your hobby even more than you already do which should make you happier.

8) Annual Park Passes

Paying an admission fee every time you want to visit one of your favorite places can add up. Getting a discounted annual pass to your local national park or theme park means you’ll always have a fun place to go and your cost per visit will go down.

Save Your Wardrobe Fashion App Promises Double Whammy Of More Streamlined & Sustainable Living

Ever since Japanese ‘organizing consultant’ Marie Kondo’s consistently best-selling 2011 opus The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up de-cluttering has become an international obsession, part of a pseudo-spiritual quest for more meaningful living. And with good reason; according to the UK arm of US weight loss business Weight Watchers there is currently at least £10.5bn of unworn items in Britain’s wardrobes. While part of that figure comes from too-wishful thinking (the extra pounds never shifted, the clothes that never fit) there’s also the more significant story of too much stuff presenting a simple lack of visibility, clouding our judgement regarding what we need or want to buy next. The result is a vastly unsatisfying cycle of irrelevant things and increasingly flabby shopper-brand relationships.

Reclaiming the peace of mind that comes with neither wasting precious resources or your own cold hard cash is what London-based Save Your Wardrobe Co-Founder Hasna Kourda, an economics and corporate strategy graduate and a former luxury fashion sales assistant, is banking on: “When I worked in retail I saw a massive loss of trust between consumers and brands because people constantly felt they were being given the hard sell, not serviced according to what they really wanted or needed. Part of the aim of this concept, which fundamentally remedies the fact most people don’t even know what’s in their own wardrobe, is to re-build loyalty and create relevancy, which will raise sales figures if not numbers of ‘things’ sold.”

The app, which is free to users (brands will pay for the data/insights it delivers) is rooted in the building of an entire virtual wardrobe. This happens in two ways to encompass both new and existing items. Firstly, using advanced computer vision tech users can photograph their existing clothing which the system will then categorize, in most cases even establishing the brand. Secondly, users can allow (ostensibly via Google GOOGL +0.21%permissions) their digital receipts to be automatically read. Assuming the brand in question is affiliated to SYW via an AP the system will recognize the SKU, allowing it to register every detail including size, color, and date of purchase. A 30-day cooling period will adjust the data should items be returned.

In order to avoid the system becoming nothing more than a backwards-looking personal fashion filter bubble -rendering it much harder to offer suggestions or predict new influences – SYW is currently working with vast fashion shopping network ShopStyle’s database of brands so users can also browse a vast number of brands to create product wish-lists. Later, it will also tap into users’ social media activity to flesh out their profiles still further.

The system will also be connected to users’ calendars, so it knows, for example, when they’re due to go on holiday, and to where, or when they have a job interview coming up and will send them product recommendations. Users have a dashboard showing both their curated selections of clothing for various occasions (“playlists of outfits”) as well as their full digitized wardrobe, generating an enormous sense of control.

For brands investing in the concept as a tool to help them plan, produce, market and/or buy more accurately, the critical factor is that it will provide a window onto tastes and preferences, grouping users into clusters and micro segments – essentially people exhibiting similar desires, behaviors or attitudes. Because it straddles multiple brands it’s a more realistic reflection of real life; the non-brand-monogamous consumer at play .

A second layer, devised to take the intelligence offered to the next level, is the introduction of a suite of core services – dry cleaning, repairs, re-sales and alteration – that Kourda believes will spotlight how users feel about their clothing. It will, she suggests, present a kind of longer-than-usual narrative for products, understanding them not as single purchases but an ongoing story that reflects the attitudes of their owners. “This is where online fashion retail has become slightly unstuck,” says Kourda. “It doesn’t present the full picture of searching, buying and aftercare over time and nor does it tap into the notion of buying mindfully.”

Furthering the notion of a more mindful mode of operating in general, drawing on her own experiences of luxury selling, Kourda believes the app’s success will lie in “assisting not annoying people with relentless alerts. It’s about understanding the key moments. For that reason, we won’t be pestering people by sending notifications [that appear outside the app, on users’ home-screens]. We believe that getting the timing right is what will create a ‘sticky’ system’.” No ads, nor sponsored content affirm a commitment to useful engagement over mercenary marketing.

As with any algorithm/machine learning based system the more parties involved and the more data is accrued the more pertinent the suggestions. “There is an opportunity here for real relevancy, rather than creating product and then working out how to sell it to people,” says Kourda. “We want people [customers and brands] not to think of store as cash machines chasing money but places for amplified experiences and connections. Customers want to feel ‘seen’, they actively expect it.”


Louis Vuitton’s cruise show: sculptural silhouettes and iconoclasm

A model presents a creation by designer Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton

The white gravel hill path that winds around Joan Miró’s sculptures in the grounds of the Fondation Maeght, near Antibes in the south of France, was not just the catwalk for Louis Vuitton’s cruise fashion show, but the inspiration as well.

“I thought about what a woman would wear in this environment,” said designer Nicolas Ghesquière. His answer? Thigh-high trainer-boots, their latex stockings attached to sporty double-soled sneakers, worn with acidic silk dresses to flutter in the pine-scented breeze.

The clothes were extraordinarily beautiful. (The shoes were just extraordinary.) This was Ghesquière who, last week, renewed his contract at Louis Vuitton after five years, doing the intensely chic futurism that he does best.

After a ready-to-wear collection in Paris fashion week 10 weeks ago notable for being within the guardrails of bourgeois – Madame Macron-friendly, some noted – this cruise collection saw a return to Ghesquière’s signature look. (Think left-bank sculptress crossed with Luke Skywalker.)

Iconoclastic modernism linked these clothes to the art around them. Proportions snagged the eye in the same way as the Miró and Giacometti pieces that dotted the lawns: the inverted-triangle proportion of a broad-shouldered jacket, the angles of a dress snipped at one ribcage. Modernism was always his point of view, said Ghesquière after the show. Of the sculptural silhouettes, he said: “You always fight with gravity when you design clothes. You want the clothes to be light, to be suspended, to move with the body of the woman.”


The Fondation Maeght, founded by art dealers Aimé and Marguerite Maeght as a temple to the work they loved, is “a love story between a family, artists and architecture,” said Ghesquiere.

The 1964 opening-night party remains the stuff of art-world legend: Ella Fitzgerald sang jazz and Alberto Giacometti, who designed benches and door handles for the building and huge pieces in the courtyard, looked on while smoking a pipe.

Fifty-four years later, Louis Vuitton’s party for 600 guests brought some of that glamour back. As well as actors Emma Stone, Léa Seydoux, Ruth Negga and Sienna Miller for the front row, the house flew in a shaman, hired for an undisclosed fee, to keep the rain away.

Bruised-blue skies held off for the duration, with torrential rain beginning half an hour later as models, now changed into jeans but still bearing the fire symbols painted on to their brows by makeup artist Pat McGrath (“to symbolise a community of women”) danced under the trees.

Ghesquière’s success at Louis Vuitton has been to boost sales while also raising the tone. Cruise fashion shows, in which fashion superbrands lay on jaw-dropping spectacles to impress their glamour upon a global audience, can seem crude in tone.

Ghesquière deftly elevates his cruise shows by choosing a modern architectural masterpiece for each venue. In this way, Louis Vuitton’s bombastic extravaganzas are pitched, instead, as a cultured world tour.

The Fondation Maeght, whose distinctive half-pipe roof has been variously likened to a skate ramp and to the horns of a bull, followed venues which have included Bob Hope’s spaceship-styled home in Palm Springs, the Mac Niterói gallery in Rio de Janeiro, and the mountaintop Miho Museum near Kyoto.

With this collection, Ghesquière said, he tried to balance classicism with excitement. “We all dream of making timeless clothes, of having timeless style, but in fashion you also want to be in the moment. You have to react to now.”

The Miami-esque colours were his response to the Fondation Maeght’s 1960s colour card. Cat-shaped clutch bags were a collaboration with the British fashion editor Grace Coddington, whose eccentric style was an inspiration for the season.


Fashion vs. function: Jamie Stelter on why flats are a medical must


People always ask me about my shoes. Most people want to know where I got them, but some wonder why I would ever go on air without wearing heels.

I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2003.

“Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory arthritis,” explained Dr. Harry Fischer, Chief of the Division of Rheumatology at Mount Sinai Beth Israel. “It’s usually joints that are tender and swollen and painful, red. It’s usually certain characteristic joints, often small joints of hands and feet.”

I’ve been working with rheumatologist Harry Fischer at Mount Sinai Beth Israel for about 10 years. In that time, I’ve had fusion surgeries in my neck and foot.

But, it was a total ankle replacement that permanently took away some of the flexion in my foot.

That means no high heels.

That’s why you’ll always see me in flats or sneakers.

“Comfortable shoes are the most important thing and I think sneakers are very comfortable. Sneakers with a good arch support, you know sometimes shoes that are wide enough and comfortable enough with enough support,” said Dr. Fischer.

It’s taken years of tinkering with medications and diet and exercise regimens to be where I am now — healthy, strong and walking without pain.

But, not everyone has artificial joints or chronic disease. Maybe you just have achy knees. Thanks to brands like Margaux, finding the right shoes is easy.

“The beauty of this brand is that they’re custom made for you and will fit to your specifications to a T,” said Erica Russo, fashion director at Bloomingdale’s.

Russo recently showed us around “The Heart of Shoe York” — the new floor at the Bloomingdale’s flagship store on Lexington Avenue and 59th Street where flat shoes come in every shape, size and color.

“Fashion is having a love affair with flats. There are just so many options from the mules, to the loafers, to the sneakers, there really is something for everyone,” Russo said.

So whether you have a medical issue or you just want to be comfortable.

“Flats are not going away. They’re just going to continue to evolve and get more special,” Russo added.


A new batch of Moto G7 renders spotted online

It is admittedly a bit early to be discussing the new Moto G generation in any depth. Still, rumors have already started pouring in, including an alleged release time frame of Q1 or the beginning of Q2 2019 and even a set of rumor-based renders.

A fresh new leak, straight from the quite reputable Twitter of one Steve, a.k.a. OnLeaks, appears to confirm many of the design traits. It consists of a huge amount of renders of what is said to be the Moto G7, showcasing a curved glass back design and a new, distinctive “teardrop” or “waterdrop” style notch. Said display is expected to boast a 6-inch diagonal, topping that of the current Moto G6. Hence, the 157 x 75.3 x 8mm (9.5mm on the camera module) Moto G7 is expected to deliver an improved screen to body ratio as well. That’s even with a still fairly wide bottom chin. After all, the Moto G line is a fairly budget one.

While on the topic of the display, upon closer investigation, we can clearly see two cut-outs next to the selfie camera and a microphone hole on the bottom chin – elements missing from the earlier set of renders. This attention to detail does instil more confidence in the authenticity of the design. Plus, this new bath of pictures clearly shows a Type-C port on the bottom and a 3.5mm audio jack.

Lenovo has been experimenting quite a bit with the Moto family in recent years, notably skipping the Moto C, M and X lines in 2018. Quoting another reputable industry source, the G7 might come in a record four variants, probably to make up and simplify the overall Moto lineup. As per rumors: The vanilla G7, pictured here, joined by a G7 Play, G7 Plus and G7 Power.

These are all well-known Moto monikers, which do allow for some speculation and extrapolation of the order they should appear the the Moto G7 family. Though, anything is possible amid this Moto G restructure. As far as we currently know, the regular Moto G7 will come with a 6-inch, FullHD+ display, 4GB or 6GB RAM, with 64GB of storage and an undisclosed octa-core Snapdragon chipset. Other alleged specs include a 16MP + 5MP main camera setup and a 12MP selfie snapper. The whole device is powered by a 3,500 mAh battery and will run Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.


Mukesh Ambani offers daughter Isha’s wedding invite at Puri Jagannath temple

Mukesh Ambani offers Isha Ambani's wedding invite at Jagannath Puri.

Mukesh Ambani offers Isha Ambani’s wedding invite at Jagannath Puri.

The Ambani family is all set for Isha Ambani’s wedding to Anand Piramal on December 12, and they are leaving no stone unturned while seeking blessings for a happy married life of their daughter.

After offering their prayers and Isha’s wedding invite at Siddhivinayak Temple in Mumbai and trekking to Kedarnath-Badrinath to do the same, Mukesh Ambani has now seeked blessings from the sibling deities at Jagannath, Puri.

He was in Bhubaneshwar for the Make In Odisha Conclave 2018, and headed straight to Puri from there to offer Isha’s wedding card.

Mukesh was accompanied by Puri collector JP Das, Superintendent of Police Sarthak Sarangi and his family priest Raghunath Gochhikar.

This is what Mukesh said about his visit to local media people in Puri:

“I consider myself blessed to have had a darshan of Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra. I invited the sibling deities to my daughter’s wedding ceremony. It is part of our tradition to seek divine blessings during marriage ceremonies and other welfare works. I had earlier visited Kedarnath and Badrinath with the wedding invite.”
