The universe was set for the richest and the most prestigious sporting event in the country, the Signature Indian Derby 2013. Glamour, shine, money, sport and class showered in plenty.
And on the other hand, remarkable and commendable for their rigorous training regime, swimming, sessions on the treadmill and high maintenance unique pieces of equipment, the horses trained to show off the effort and class it required to be there. Not just in training, these horses are also being pampered and groomed, to give their best and look their best at the Indian derby.
We fluttered around like little buds spotting celebs, sexy cutouts, flashing backs, the Burberry, Prada and LV handbags, and creditable amounts of make-up. And what more can add to the shine and glamour than a fashion show by worthy names, Rocky S and Pria Kataria Puri. Shuttling in the midst of this high octane glam, we manage to spot quite a few divas attending the event like Aditi Rao Hydari (looking absolutely stunning in that shimmer gown), Poonam Pandey, Bruna Abdulla, Deepti Gujral, Shamita Singha amongst many others.
Infectious opening, exhilarating silhouettes, fleeting excitement and high voltage shine, the event was a marvel on its own. The race was obviously a winner for those who attended this for the first time, and the billowing drapes, diaphanous fabrics and frayed tassels that complemented the Indian bronze skin perfectly, won our hearts too!
