India International Jewelry Week 2013: Photos and Review

Indian International Jewelry Week 2013 kick started last week in Delhi. Instead of a week long affair, it was held over 2 days. And now it will tour all over India. Honestly I don’t get the point of so “full” outfits and there’s just too much going on. One just can’t pay attention to the jewelry.

Sonam Kapoor wore an Anamika Khanna orange floral lehenga. As usual my attention is on something which has got to do nothing with the ocassion. Come on Anshita, focus! Focus. Right. So the  jewellery (yes now I’m talking) was from her mother, Sunita Kapoor’s collection. See this is why I was looking at the lehenga, there’s nothing in the jewelry to talk about!

Lara Dutta wore jewels from Amer Collection by Birdhichand Ghanshyamdas Jewellers in an electric blue gown. Gawdy!

Chitrangada Singh walked the ramp for Hazoorilal Jewellers. Now the necklace is nice and I want to have a better look at it. Why has she kept her hair lose and covered half of the pretty necklace with her hair. Why. Are the stylists complete idiots or what?

Yamini Gautam showcased jewelry for Rio Tinto. Now this is nice. And here you get to see what the designer is trying to show. Take a lesson stylists.

Neha Dhupia walked the ramp for Gitanjali Jewels. Now what’s the point of a “Jewelry Week” when the outfits are gonna take all the attention. Half of her necklace is inside her blouse. The earrings are hidden behind those blow dried hair. What are we supposed to look at!

Now there s one peice I actually like and I don’t know who is this from. Apparently, nobody wrote about this stunning necklace because she is just a regular model and no bollywood super star. Let’s call her The Girl In The Emerald Necklace.

Shriya Saran : HOTNNESS!! Why do you have such kickass body?!  Yellow never looked this sexy on a dusky girl, Ever! Oh yeah yeah she walked the ramp for Shuddhi Jewels. Don’t miss the burnt orange lip. or the 60s hair braid. or the winged eye liner.

Yeah yeah I was about to come to the jewelry too.

 Ummm…hasn’t she taken androgynous a bit too far?

I found a pic of her’s last year at IIJW i.e 2012. The Girl With The Fantasy Necklace…isn’t she?

PS – All pics taken off the internet. no ownership over them.

Founder and Editor-in-chief, VNA. When she is not moonlighting as the editor, you can find her watching american sitcoms and movies. She is a huge lover of literature, instagram, snapchat and food and could possibly be more passionate about these than makeup!


  1. I know wut u mean….why cant they all walk out in black outfits with the hair tied up high…Showcasin jewellery after all….wut is the point wen as it is u have to squint ur eyes to see the designs and on top of it you get glazed out due to the outfit/makeup/hair…..why ppl why?!?

  2. i think this was one of the dissapointing shows. Chitrangada who is otherwise a bombshell looked so ugly in this strange hairstyle…it dint do justice to the jewellery and the dress.I
