The event will be World’s first Online Shoppable Fashion Week and will reach millions of audience through www.iofw.com. Our Fashion Content Head and blog Editor- Karishma Kambo interviewed IOFW’s Celebrity mentor- Yami Gautam.

"jabong.org"There’s a shopaholic in everyone: Yami Gautam browsing Jabong.com!

Karishma Kambo:  Hi! Yami Gautam. It has been an incredible day today, and you are an inspiration for all the participants of India Online Fashion Week. So, I thought it will be nice to have a few words with you regarding the show.  We would like to know that how does it feel to be associated with India Online Fashion Week and Jabong.com?

Yami Gautam: I think it’s great!  That’s the reason we all are here. I have come here for this association because I think it’s extremely unique. It’s something that we will be seeing for the first time. It’s an online fashion week and which gives opportunity to the young budding talent. ummmm, showcasing their aptitude, not just this but the designer  wear clothes will become accessible to people. This is always happening of course through your world wide web. So, I think it was a new initiative and I was very excited when I got to know about it and I said Yes, definitely! I will have to be in it(ends with a big smile).

Karishma Kambo: Nice. So what does online shopping mean to you?

Yami Gautam: I think..ummm.. the first word which comes to my mind when it comes to online shopping is “convenience” for sure. I think it’s extremely easy. Ahh, because it’s just, u know it’s just a click away from you. So..and of course a lots of variety specially jabong.com has are thousand, and more than thousand actually! U know, High street fashion brands, designer labels, ethnic wear, sports wear, everything is available on the website. So, it’s listed, u know, with a lot of options and variety! So for me, it’s a mix of these things and I think that’s the reason why its come up as the most leading website in such a short span of time (karishma nodding in agreement..)"Jabong Shopping Online"                                         A beaming Yami poses for the shutterbugs

Karishma Kambo: Nice, so you have shopped from jabong? What are the favourites when you go online? What do you like to shop from jabong?

Yami Gautam: I think I have done a lot of purchasing especially shoes. Honestly, I wear a small shoe size. (Karishma and Yami both laughing). If I like something and then if in case my size is not available, then my heart also broke a couple times.(Yami and Karishma both laughs again).Shoes are something I’m really fond of.

Karishma Kambo: Ok! How does it feel to be a mentor for India online fashion week and what is one message you want to send to all the participants being the mentor of this event?

Yami Gautam: I think(with hand expression) mentor is a really big term. I don’t think I can really mentor(Smiling)

Karishma Kambo: You are just being modest, Yami? (smiling)

Yami Gautam: No, I’m not being modest(with a slight laughter)Honestly, I also don’t come from a fashion background. I’m not a former model or something. I just carry acting. but what I am gonna talk about is what really works for me despite not having that advantage of being a model yet walking on the ramp is an attitude(Karishma saying,right) This is about how comfortable you are with what you are wearin!  Ahhh, how well you can carry yourself. So! I’m gonna share this experience of mine with the participants and maybe you never know they have something to teach me. I think it’s gonna be more of interaction than mentoring. I don’t think they need any ‘gyaan’ from me and specially these days, I think everybody is more or less very groomed, very prim and proper. So, I think it’s more of an interaction that I am looking forward to."yami gautam  at Jabong.org"                                          In conversation with Yami Gautam

Karishma Kambo: That’s nice! That‘s what we actually think.jabong.com wants to focus on fashion for everybody. We believe it’s not restricted to few people! So, thank you!

You are looking really nice today (both smile) and what a lovely dress you are wearing. Would you like to talk about it?

Yami Gautam: Yes, the dress is by Farhan and Sanjana and I like it again because of the colors which is something really different. Its got a flamingo and I want something like that(laughter continues).it’s something quirky, very summery and again it’s a dress which doesn’t need to be accesorised much. So,I just have a single earcuff, just blow dry hair and just my personal shoes. So,yup.(Smiling)"yami gautam  at Jabong"                              Yami with Team Jabong at the IOFW press conference

Karishma Kambo: Nice, so! I just thought to know about your favourite evening look.

Yami Gautam: uummm…it depends on what function or if it’s a …..

Karishma Kambo: anything…like for a girl to just step out for an evening party. What would a young girl wear?

Yami gautam: I think maybe if it’s just a party, you know..maybe a short dress that could have a bit of sequin work. Nothing too daring, nothing too boring. The colors will matter but the fit is what really definitely matters. So, anything which is short, with a nice pair of stilletoes. I don’t like accessorizing too much. I think the fit and the color is really what matters to me.

Karishma Kambo: Nice (Yami saying YEAH with a smile) and a day outing or a lunch date?

Yami gautam:  A day outing or lunch date.. then I  will keep it very light, specially, summers are just around the corner. Much Softer colours and fabrics. It doesn’t burn your skin and you look nice. That looks very pretty, very breezy. So, I like soft colors like mint, pastel shades and I think the look is very nice, pretty and feminine.

Karishma Kambo: Thank you so much. We are very excited about having you as a part of India online fashion week.

Yammi gautam: Thank you, same here!

FIFA World Cup- Hottest WAGs

Things are getting hotter, at the FIFA World Cup, as players from 32 countries are fighting it out to make it to the knock-out stage. Football is never only about adrenaline-rushing action, and nail-biting finishes. Amidst the dazzling moves and clever passes on the field, we just cannot give the wives and girlfriends (WAGs) of the professional players a pass. Jabong Online Shopping has compiled a list of the famous WAGs of the 2014 World Cup edition that deserve your full attention:"FIFA World Cup at Jabong"From L-R: 1. Iker Casillas with girlfriend Sara Carbonero 2. Sergio Ramos with girlfriend Pilar Rubio 3. Cristiano Ronaldo and girlfriend Irina Shayk 4. Gerard Pique with girlfriend Shakira

Singing sensation Shakira drove football fans crazy with the World Cup 2010 theme song “Waka, Waka”, but her success didn’t just end there. The suave Spanish defender Gerard Pique, and Shakira have been in a relationship since then, and have even welcomed their first son, Milan! Here’s a picture of them at the Billboard Music Awards, as the crooning beauty turned up the heat in a body-hugging dress! Emulate her look with similar bodycon women dresses at Jabong, and watch on as your boyfriend chooses you over the big game!

The Real Madrid and Spanish defender Sergio Ramos may not be at the best of his game at the World Cup, but he sure clinched the top spot with his smoking hot partner, Pilar Rubio. A celebrity in her own, Pilar dons several hats as a model, TV actress, TV reporter as well as a designer!

Who says WAGs are only glamour girls? The Spain National team captain Iker Casillas’s girlfriend, Sara Carbonero was a Spanish sports journalist and TV presenter, when she met her now-boyfriend. I’ve got a serious girl crush on the FMH winner of the ‘Sexiest Reporter in the world’! The couple became parents to a beautiful baby named Martin, in January 2014.

The most enviable celebrity couple has to be supermodel Irina Shayk and her beau Cristiano Ronaldo! The sexy Russian siren has walked the ramp for several brands and posed for the last 6 issues of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The Portugal forward needs no introduction, and the duo has been steady since 2011.

Style check: GQ Best Dressed Men Awards 2014

The 5th edition of the GQ Best Dressed Men Awards 2014 was recently held in the Palladium Hotel, Mumbai, to pay homage to the most stylish men of our country. If you missed out, we bring you a breakdown on the country’s biggest sartorial achievers.  While we were pleasantly surprised to see the immaculately dressed men (well, most of them!), we got to give the ladies some credit too!"Women Shopping Online at Jabong"

Nargis Fakhri, stole the show with a risqué Namrata Joshipura sheer embellished dress, Bottega Veneta clutch and Isharya jewellery finished her head-turning look. A slick ponytail and bold berry lips, showed us how she completely owned the look! Emulate her look with the Dorothy Perkins collection at Jabong, and go from drab to fab within minutes! The ever-stunning Evelyn Sharma took the plunge in a riveting Anita Dongre dress, as she struck a pose for the shutterbugs. Preeti Desai, tried hard by accentuating her enviously perfect figure in the coral Gaurav Gupta gown. With a soft up-do, hoops and a cocktail ring, this look doesn’t quite dial up to wow us. Clad in a Veda Raheja dress, Amrita Puri is all smiles dimples, and sure kicked up on the sultry factor at the soiree. A black clutch and Badgley Mischka pumps completed her electrifying look. Speaking of electrifying looks, we are left in shock at Anushka Manchanda’s look courtesy Anand Bhushan! What was she thinking? Kiran Rao fared quite well in the Drashta dress, a welcome change from her mundane red-carpet choices."men shopping online at Jabong"1. Ayushmann Khurana 2. Rahul Khanna 3. Shahid Kapoor 4. Saif Ali Khan 5. Karan Johar 6. Amit Sadh

You didn’t think we would forget the men…eh? The fashion aficionados came out to play, as the paparazzi had a field time putting them under the scanner. The ‘Vicky Donor’ star, Ayushmann Khurana looked sleek in a well-tailored, blue Paul Smith suit, white shirt, brown shoes and a gold lapel chain-pin. The yellow-silver striped tie, and bright yellow pocket square, showed his daring side. It’s your turn to suit up with the formals collection at your favourite shopping portal for online shopping for men! We sure didn’t expect such a hideous look from the Nawab who is also gracing the cover of this month’s GQ issue! Saif Ali Khan, wore a Burberry black leather jacket, white tee and a pair of beat-up denims. Rahul Khanna looked dapper in a double-breasted plaid suit courtesy Gucci. He scores 10/10 for this classy, and confident appearance! Although his casual look was under-stated for the star-studded event, we got to give it to Shahid Kapoor, for his stand-out appearance. He looked smashing in a monochrome look, sporting a casual white blazer with a crew neck black tee, black trousers and suede shoes. Karan Johar failed to impress in his ill-fitting suit and trousers, while Amit Sadh shows us how Nehru jackets dramatically create an effortless and red-carpet appropriate swoon-worthy look.
