How Shahrukh became Gaurav in the movie Fan

SRK-Fan-Gaurav-mould2

Enchanting prosthetics and a lot more efforts brought to screen helped in to bring live to Gaurav.  Hollywood make up artist Greg Canon created the whole 3D prosthetic makeup look. Greg said, “Normally he take 10-15 days for such transformations but he had to do this in just seven days.

Prosthetic is the process of using prosthetic sculpting, molding, creating and casting techniques to make advanced cosmetic effects.

Perhaps, it is not just SRK who should enjoy all the credit for Gaurav – VFX technology, digital enhancing, prosthetics and a lot more effort together with Khan’s engaging acting skills brought to screen the character that is now ruling hearts.

To fortify a realistic grade that worked with the emotions and story, over 500 hundred hours were spent grading the VFX plates and fine-tuning for the grade of the movie, Ken added.

Gaurav’s making and character required a lot of research and prosthetics makeup. The irony was, Gaurav had to look alike yet different.

It almost took Shahrukh khan four five hours daily to put on silicon based prosthetic makeup which is created by Oscar winning makeup artist Greg cannom. That’s how Shahrukh turned into Gaurav and wins accolades.

The art of dressing upon floral design

With spring setting in, floral designs are back in vogue. As the weather gets warmer dark shades of the winter are replaced with soft pastels, heavy materials replaced with lighter fabric and florals hit the racks again to bring out the warmth in dressing. Floral designs have inspired designers through different eras in creating attire that makes a style statement. Be it in the form of huge flowers in a flowing maxi dress or small flowers in the casual shirt or using an ornate flower brooch to wear on the fancy saree, floral designs can be worn on just about any occasion.

Whether you choose to wear that georgette maxi dress with huge floral print or that pretty floral top or the latest skinny leggings with floral print there are many ways to get the floral dressing right to go with the spring look. Here is a simple guide to refer to when choosing florals so as to highlight your feminine side subtly without overdoing the flower power.

Picking the size of floral print you choose to wear:

If you have a tiny built you can go ahead and choose the dress or the top with bold floral print. This helps in adding to your persona giving you a bolder look which would be subdued if you went with tiny florals. Similarly, if you are on the heavier side, you may want to go with smaller floral prints that give you a smaller appearance. Flowy tops with soft fabric go great with small floral prints and look chic too. Younger girls should opt for smaller to medium size floral look why the older women would go with the bolder florals.

Accessorize:

Floral print accessories are awesome to try when going for the floral look. Sunglass frames, hair bands, bandanas and scarves, belts, shoes, purses and whatever you can imagine can be experimented with. The trick to being remembered here is to be subtle and don’t go overboard with the floral print. For instance, a plain peach dress will go great with a pair of floral stilettos, but a floral dress and floral stilettos would make you look like a flower garden.

Create your own edgy style statement:

If you have the right body frame and are willing to go with a powerful floral look, go with a pair of denim or white shirt paired with floral leggings to make your own style statement. Floral shorts with plain t-shirts of pastel shades are a great trend to look out for to get the chic look. Be creative and mix and match to create a look that you will own.

Go floral bohemian style:

Dressing floral for the beach party, experiment with different hair accessories to go with your floral party dress. From wreaths to floral hair pins to using actual and real flowers, style as you please to get the right floral look you desire.

While florals are almost a blind trend for women to follow, always remember to be subtle to bring out the best from your design and try to go neutral rather than being stark. This is two keywords to remember when wearing upon florals designs.

Sustainable Fashion: A debatable topic: Green is the new black

Eco fashion these days is highly debatable. Sustainable fashion is a new revolution to fashion industry. Eco fashion is done with a motive to enhance the purchaser awareness of social and environmental concerns on the clothing manufacturing sectors.

Sustainable fashion can best be bore in by creating sustainably designed products which inflates the longevity of a garment. There are certain reasons behind the formation of the sustainable fashion movement and one of the major reasons is the rapid fashion phenomenon. According to the various research reports, low-cost clothing flies off the shelves faster, so now the brands have started focusing on cheap garments with short lead time. Recent studies conducted on carbon footprints in the United Kingdom were actually triggered by excess clothing bought by customers, which dangerously increases the rate of carbon dioxide emission into the environment, setting off alarms in those uprooting for sustainable fashion. People want to buy more garments every season even after knowing the fact that they are going to discard it at the end of the season. With this blog we aim to put a light on Consumers psychological behaviour which has to be changed to implement the sustainable fashion movement.

 Motive of debate

Sustainability, by definition, should meet and pile up with current generation needs without compromising future generations. The major trial in sustainability is the cooperation of all suppliers of individual components. They have to be ethically secured and accountable for various arenas like labour to transportation from factory to retail outlet, aftercare and disposal of garments.

For the fashion industry, green is the new black to focus on sustainable practices. According to a site source, “Several incidents in the twentieth century helped the rise of conscious consumerism. One is the fire in a Nike factory in Indonesia due to poor working conditions, resulting in protests and boycotts by employees and the media. And now Twenty-four years later, Nike is one of the leading companies in implementing sustainable practices.

Brands like Levi’s have showed implementation into the lifecycle of their garments to raise consumer awareness about sustainable fashion. A case in point is Levi’s Care Tag For Our Planet initiative and several big brands like Gucci, Calvin Klein, MK, Stella McCartney and Puma are also stressing on sustainability.

Ouch, Concerns of fashion industry

After the oil and gas industry, the fashion and textile sector is the most polluting, because each stage of a garment’s life cycle threatens our planet and resources. To produce a kilogram of cotton which is equivalent to one T-shirt or a pair of jeans requires more than 20,000 litres of water, one of the major resources. About 8,000 types of chemicals are used in the conversion of raw material into garments. If some clothes do not sell or when they go out of style, they land in giant landfills, adding to the pollution. So love you planet and join hands in sustainable fashion plead.

Fashion for Skinny and Curvy girls

Women can spend hours in front of the mirror trying to figure out what attire suits them most. Fashion trends come and go but to wear your own style statement is to understand your body type and wear the fashion that compliments you. While every woman dreams of having a combination of the perfect waistline and the perfect curves, very few actually have it. Respecting your body type and dressing accordingly is what your personal fashion is. Here are style tips for the skinny and curvy girls that go a long way in creating your own style statement.

For the skinny girls:

For many you are an object of envy. While there are people struggling with weight issues, you may be dealing with complexes of looking too thin. For the skinny girls, there are a few style checks that go a long way in wearing your personal style statement.

Loose and baggy clothes are a strict no:

While you may think loose clothes add a little weight to your skinny figure, they actually make you look like a hanger. And hence, opt for clothes that flaunt your body. If you find clothes are not available for your size, it would be worthwhile to alter them and stitch them as per size to fit.

Fabric:

Fabrics that cling or are thick both work great for skinny figured women as they tend to accentuate their figure.

Colors & prints:

Dark colors especially black make women look slim, so avoid it. Go for lighter shades with huge prints like florals that add curves around your frame. Horizontal stripes are also a great option for the skinny girls.

Dress pattern:

You are lucky that you don’t have to worry about picking up that flared dress. The flares and layers in tops and in skirts are a great way to add an illusion of curves. Also chunky accessories make you’re otherwise tiny frame some weight.

Hiding thin arms and legs:

Sleeveless can be best avoided by skinny girls as it makes the arms look very thin. Go in for three-fourth sleeves, blazers and puffed sleeves to avoid highlighting very skinny arms. Similarly for the legs, go in for pants with a little flare at the bottom, such as boot cut. Shorts that puff up around the hips add on the curve factor for the skinny girls.

For the curvy girls:

Being plus size can be very demoralizing sometimes when it comes to picking the right fashion. Here are a few handy tips for the curvy girls that would definitely help you in picking clothes that highlight your curves.

What to wear:

Jeans and skirts are the best bit for the curvy girls. Tight jeans hug the curves at the right places giving legs an overall skinny look. Similarly, A-line or pencil skirts give you an overall leaner look.

Pattern:

Oversized clothes are nothing short of a fashion blunder, but the key her is to get loose clothes that do not cling. This just means getting the right size between oversized and tight to fit and highlight your figure right.

Colors and prints:

Dark colors and small prints make a great combination for the curvy women. However, you can select bold prints as long as they don’t make you look huge.
Undergarments: Invest in the right kind of undergarments as they are the foundation for your outfit. Right undergarments can actually help camouflaging the ugly bulges.

Fabrics:

Avoid fabrics like wool that make you look bulky. Go for soft cotton that would not stick to your body and will leave you cool and comfortable even for the hot seasons.

Skinny or curvy, there is very little you can do to completely transform your body type but dressing as per your body requirements in what fashion is all about. Most importantly, fashion works for you only if you are comfortable in what you wear and confident about carrying it, after all, being a true fashionista is all about being what you are.

Graduates: What to wear to an Interview

‘Dress to make an impression’, the phrase makes sense for every dressing but holds a lot more significance when it comes to graduates going in for an interview. It is important for a graduate to dress smart, as you want the people on the other side of the table to take you seriously and not consider you a kid just out of college.

While being fashionable and trendy is one thing, it is important to not let fashion take over the better part of you as the objective for an interview is the interviewer should remember you and not your attire. Smart and crisp fashion are the keywords to remember when it comes to interviewing fashion for graduates or anyone for that matter. While what you present as your achievements is one part of the interview, one needs to ensure that how you look and dress works in your favor by presenting you in the best possible light.

There are some checks that a graduate should bear in mind so as to not wrong with the interview dressing.

1.How to dress:

You have seen people wearing serious business suits when they go for business meetings, this should be your foundation when you start thinking of your interview attire. An interview is not the place or time to experiment with clothes, accessories or perfumes. Avoid stark and bold patterns, funky jewelry, contrasting colors and an overdose of your favorite perfume. Look neat and tidy. While every industry dressing demands are different interview basics remain the same. Being creative is okay but being formal is a must.

2.What to wear:

For the boys, it’s okay if you don’t want to wear a formal suit but a smart formal shirt with well-fitted trousers is a must. Jeans is a no whether it is for the boys or the girls. Accessorize with a smart belt and matching shoes and ensure you wear your formal socks and leave the funky ones in your wardrobe.

how-to-dress-for-an-interview

For the girls, formal skirts, button shirts, formal trousers are all great to go with for interviews. Be careful on the colors and be subtle. Another important point to remember is to completely avoid tight, ill fitted or too short dresses when going for an interview. Ensure your clothes are well ironed. Accessorize with comfortable formal shoes and keep the jewelry simple and minimal. Avoid wearing accessories that make a lot of sound as that can be very irritating and distracting at an interview.

dress-for-an-interview

3.Hair and Makeup:

For the men it is best to avoid goatees, stubble, long hair and beards. It is best to go with a clean look well shaved, short hair neatly gelled and combed. For the ladies, again hair should be neatly combed avoiding open hair. Women tend to fiddle with their hair and hence pulling them back into a ponytail is the best hairdo for an interview. Go easy with the makeup. You are just a graduate and young, stick to minimal makeup that makes your natural shine. The dark smoky eyes are not for an interview. Energetic eyes with a simple dash of kohl and eyeliner and well-defined lips with neutral or formal lip colors are the only makeup that you would need for an interview. However nervous you may be, get a good sleep previous night as you don’t want to carry puff eye bags with you at the interview.

What you wear at the interview will be interviewer’s first impression of you and your personality and hence take time and effort to get it right. Most importantly, wear your confidence and a bright smile which will be your biggest winner at the interview.

A Positive Mind Helps You Lighten Your Skin Tone

Mahatma Gandhi once very truly said, “a man is a product of his thoughts”. Coco Chanel, the icon of fashion and fragrance also withheld the belief that real and long lasting beauty comes from within which is further enhanced with proper training as long as one feels good and confident in his own skin and wears a positive attitude. Many other icons have carried forward the belief that ‘happy girls are the prettiest girls’; all of them reiterating the importance of letting happy and positive thoughts dwell in your mind rather than give room to negative thoughts in your mind and soul.

It has been scientifically proven that a positive mind and approach to life leads to a healthier and radiant skin. Positive thoughts and relaxed minds are like a vitamin boost for your skin and helps as an immunity booster for the skin.

To understand the relationship between positivity of mind and the wellness of your skin, there are some basics that need to be understood:

1.Your skin mirrors your emotions:

Do you ever feel that you get your ugly acne and unjustified boils whenever you are feeling sad, or negative. The PH of the skin suddenly goes for a toss when our mind is not in the right frame of mind. Stress and negative thoughts even darken your skin tone far more than what the UV rays of the sun can. While human mind can never be free from problems, it is important to balance out negatives with positives. When you know you are stressed, it becomes all the more crucial for you to practice simple breathing and meditation exercises. These stress relieving exercises are known to have a deep impact in calming the mind by increasing the oxygen supply in the body.

2.Stress and anxiety affect the skin color and the body energy levels:

Deadlines, exam pressures, dealing with relationship problems are very few of the many stress and anxiety issues that affect our minds. Did you know every time you are stressed or your mind thinks negative, it puts your internal system of a hormonal rollercoaster that first thing impacts your skin tone. Negative emotions make your body resilient to stressors and affect your body’s ability to release neurohormones that combat the stress hormones. These hormones as the result give your skin a tired and worn out look and make your energy levels go down immensely. The next time you see the dark circles increasing you know the root cause lies within.

3.Positive thoughts substitute the world’s most powerful skin cream:

To stay young and beautiful, you don’t need a botox; to keep your skin spot free, you don’t need a spot corrector; all that you need to inject is your mind with some positive thoughts. Positivity of mind is the best help and remedy to obtain clean and problem free skin. Exercise, morning walks and everything that can help you relax will leave your skin feeling fresh always. Staying hydrated helps you wash away toxins that build negativity in your system and also help in keeping the skin fresh and young longer.

4.Positive thoughts are a result of positive habits:

Positivity of mind is not different from positivity in practices. What you practice will determine the health of your body and mind. An individual who practices healthy habits produces far more stress fighting hormones than the ones who don’t. Breathing negative habits like smoking, only harm your body and mind’s stress fighting ability, in turn, affecting your skin and system. Always wear your self-confidence and look at yourself as the best solution for your own problems.

Always remember doing what you love will help you stay positive and happy and hence invest most of the time in doing what you are passionate about. Staying happy and positive is the best that you can give your skin and your beautiful skin will only stay thankful to you for the same.
