Barbara Mori Was Bald When Considered For “Kites”

It was expected that Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori are threatening to set celluloid afire with their sensuous pairing in ‘Kites.’ Hrithik Roshan, though, recalls how he practically recoiled when he saw his prospective female lead for the premier time.

Apparently, Mori… was practically bald when Roshan Jr. clapped eyes on her! The actress had just finished canning sequences for a Spanish flick ‘Cosas Insignificantes’, wherein she enacted the mother of a young child who suffers from cancer; her cine character shaves off her child as mark of empathy to her son.

Mori, however, managed to convince the Roshans that she’d be able to grow her lustrous mane back within the six month span mentioned… or supplement her tresses with hair extensions.

Director Anurag Basu and Roshan Jr. were convinced like a shot that she’d be their female lead for ‘Kites’. High flying faith, eh?


John Abraham’s Bad Luck !

The craze for this actor in bollywood is still unbelievable, but actor John Abraham is proving unlucky as far as his films are concerned. Now, the latest is that the actor’s upcoming film with David Dhawan has been shelved for the moment. HOOK YA CROOK, which is produced by UTV and has John in the lead, has been shelved since the producers think that the product is not up to the mark.

This will be the second time John’s film is facing such a situation. Earlier his film with Nagesh Kuknoor met a similar fate after it got shelved.

Though, John is considered to be among the top actors in bollywood, but it seems his luck is not in top form at the moment.

Unquestionably street savvy, this Porsche Design shoe revs the engines of the fast and the fashionable. With clean lines, a unique heel counter, seat print patterns and top stitching, all that's missing is four wheels and a gas pedal.

A first glance to this sneaker is like a gold sneaker and without taking a look at the outsole. The Adidas Porsche Design S2 can be your own personal luxury vehicle that will fit your feet and your personality to .

On closer inspection, the Adidas Porsche Design S2 sneaker appears to be more of a driving shoe that promises to provide you hours of driving fun. If you do a lot of pedal and metal pushing, then keep your feet comfortable with this pair of sneakers.

The Adidas Porsche Design S2 comes in a white upper, white tongue, and white laces. It is accented by the black Adidas three-stripes, which is modestly displayed on the side panel as a proud reminder of the brand.

The midsole of this driving sneaker is a mix of black and white. The black sole has the metal Porsche Design emblem. Look under and you will see an ebony undersole with the unique white stripes design and the words Porsche design prominently displayed below that.

The only drawback was lack of arch support. But then again, I didn't go for the comfort, instead the unique design.

A small Adidas logo is displayed on the heel of the show. This sneaker is a great companion for all-day driving at less than $100.

McQueen's Death hurts Fashion World

Yes, there are other big names: Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney and Paul Smith come to mind. But the sudden death of Alexander McQueen leaves a gaping hole at the center of London as well as the world fashion universe.

McQueen was Britain's shooting star, a man who helped make London cool again in the 1990s. And his personal history helped inspire others.

The son of a London cabbie, the youngest of six siblings, McQueen was a product of the streets, not a posh dilettante with a wealthy family to back his fashion whims.

Now he is gone, due to an apparent suicide that has not been confirmed by his family or the police. And fashion insiders don't see any heir apparent to the enfant terrible who turned catwalk shows into memorable works of performance art.

So what left behind was two unseen collections: one to be shown at Paris Fashion Week and one that was meant to be presented on the day of his death announcement, for his secondary line McQ.


Top 10 Tips on Proper Business Attire for Men

In my whole working life, being in work or attend business functions, parties or dinners, a proper dressed up is always a plus point than under dressed. In this session, I would like to share the TOP 10 tips on what we should wear in such environment.
  • Choose a conservative suit in navy, black or gray either pinstripe or solid. The quality of the material speaks as loudly as the color and can make the difference between sleaze and suave.
  • A solid white or blue dress shirt with long sleeves offers the most polished look. The more pattern and color you add, the more the focus is on your clothing, rather than your professionalism.
  • Ties should be made of silk or a silk-like fabric. Avoid the cartoon characters and go for simple and subtle if you want to enhance your credibility.
  • Socks should be calf-length or above. Make sure they match not only what you are wearing, but also each other. A quick glance in good light before heading out the door can save embarrassment later in the day. Check for holes as well if you'll be going through airport security and removing your shoes.
  • Shoes should without question be conservative, clean and well polished. Lace-up shoes are the choice over slip-ons or flip flops. Don't think for a minute that people don't notice shoes. Many people will look at your feet before your face.
  • Belts need to match or closely coordinate with your shoes. Once again, quality counts.
  • Keep jewelry to a minimum. In a time when men sport gold necklaces, bracelets and earrings, the business professional should limit himself to a conservative watch, a wedding band and maybe his college ring.
  • Personal hygiene is part of the success equation. Freshly scrubbed wins out over heavily fragranced any day of the week. Save the after-shave for after hours, but never the shave itself.
  • The accessories: briefcase, portfolio and pen. When it comes to sealing the deal, a top of the line suit, a silk tie and a good pair of leather shoes can lose their affect when you pull out the ball point pen you picked up in the hotel meeting room the day before.
  • The finishing part of the whole attire, be confident on your self and carry a good looking smile on your face.


2010 Men Hairstyle Trends

Well, everyone are wondering what will be mens hairstyle trends in 2010? In our own opinion, here are just a few of men hairstyle trends in 2010.

Short Man’s Hairstyles
High and Tight, Fade, Spike, Clipper Cut and Crew Cut, whatever name you want to call it. We reckoned that by far the most popular man’s hairstyle in 2010 is the High and Tight or Fade.

Characterized by a closely cropped clipper cut around the sides and back of the head with just enough hair on top of the head to comb, this man’s hairstyle with its many variations accounts for about 50% of all popular styles today. With just a little bit of gel to spike up the top, mess it up a little or finger into place, this man’s hairstyle will only take you seconds to achieve.

While you may have to get it cut more often, about every three weeks or so, the ease of styling this man hair cut is what makes it a favorite among busy men today.

Medium length, textured Men’s Hairstyle
2010 hairstyle trends for men have a lot of texture and the same is true for medium-length styles (about 3 to 4 inches). These styles resemble the classic man haircut of the past, but step it up a notch by using extreme texture and color to bring it all together.

Most styles use a great deal of razoring and texturizing with notching scissors. To style this man’s hairstyle pomade usually works best. Work product through dry hair and finger into place.

Long Men’s Hairstyles
While most men do not wear their hair down their back anymore, the long man’s hair style has made a somewhat shorter comeback. Perhaps the most recognizable example that we can related to this men’s hair style is Ashton Kutcher. Long, textured and disheveled, this man hair cut is gaining widespread popularity. Again, this man’s hair cut requires a lot of texture and works best with pomade.

As you can see, the man’s hair style in 2010 is far from boring. Gone are the days of cookie-cutter barber shop man haircut. :)

A star was born in the 1930’s when Walt Disney produced his first animated feature. The movie was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and the music was outstanding.
