Gossip girls and the swish set

The gossip girls gathered at the bar. Well, they were there at Luna Nudo high up St Regis, sipping their wines and cool cocktails and catching up in good cheer. Men had a tough time trying to edge in for a drink, but then nobody was complaining, for it was a damn good sight to see the lovely ladies.

It was delightful designer Pria Kataaria Puri’s party to launch her sizzling new collection called Pera Bella. Mahima Chaudhary, Rashmi Nigam, Sana Khan, Konkana Bakshi, Shama Sikandar, Pavan Anand and many more were there.

Guests gushed at the sheer splendour of the 25 near-life-size clay sculptures portraying ballet and contemporary dancers, all three-dimensional translations of his extensive oeuvre of photographs of the performers, bringing alive the power and beauty of the human form.
