Lending my style!!!!

 Styling is something I have always enjoyed but so far its either been me helping my sister with a styling job or just doing some friends a favor. So when ZYNG (Zoroastrian Youth For The Next Generation) asked me to style their annual calender for this year I was obviously a little hesitant. And considering the last one was styled by my style-guru and sister Anaita Shroff Adajania, I had some pretty big shoes to fill! With only two days of prep-time I had to call in a lot of favors from my designer friends and ended up with some great clothes by Shivan & Narresh, Sonya Vajifdar, Nishka Lulla and Shubhika Sharma. I also dug into my closet and packed all my favorite outfits and took off for lovely Alibaugh.  We decided to start the shoot with the beautiful Jenai Kavarana in all gold.We finished all twelve shots in two days and I think everyone has done a great job. Let me take you through all the images  and all the looks we planned.

First up we have our 3 boys Xereus, Rayomand & Rohaan . We wanted this picture to be all about the boys, so we dressed them down and just got them drenched. While we were shooting this picture I though it would be great to put this shot as January coz everyone's expecting to see a nice pretty bawi and then Voila!
Heating up February we have Dina, who I think looks like gorgeous Kamal Siddhu's younger sister. We shot this picture right next to the beach and wanted her to just look young and fresh. Shes wearing a lovely floral top and crochet waistcoat by Nishka Lulla.

Here we have Jenai in all gold. We just put her in this dull gold dress, added some statement jewelry and made her step into the pool. Hot...Hot...Hot!
For April we wanted something floral and summery, so I gave Arnavaz my all time favorite floral maxi and a gigantic flower on her head to complete the look. I bought this dress many years ago from fashion street for Rs 300 and lets just say it never fails to impress. I love how the dress and the flowers in the arch are all merging.
May is one of the hottest months so we got our dare-to-bare bikini model Ellen to heat up the calendar in this hot Shivan & Narresh monokini  with a bright coral colored kaftan over it.
In June we have the pretty pretty Anahita and Rohaan. We wanted to give her something edgy yet glamerous, so I gave her one of my favorites from Papa Don't Preach by Shubhika Sharma.

In July we see Maia in a hot Shivan & Narresh swimsuit worn with black shorts. I love how this looked turned out, love the big hair and the all back accesories.
Dilkhush looks stunning in this Sonya Vajifdar shaded purple gown. We teamed it with this amazing statement necklace which is another street buy ;) I'll let u in on a little secret , we folded the lining of the dress to make it look like it was all net.
In September we have Zenaika and Benisha both in Papa Don't Preach by Shubhika Sharma. I just love the colors in Shubhika's collection , everything just pops! love the acid green and orange together.  We kept the accessories to the bare minimal, just some cuffs and rings.
Here we have the sexy Alyssa looking super hot in this sunset shot on the beach. Shes in a Shivan & Narresh sarong with tonnes of bangles. 
The threesome - Rayomand, Scherezade & Xereus. I actually imaged this look very differently, I initially thought of having all 3 of them in suits like a full blown "man-style" story but unfortunately  my suit did not fit Scherezade,  so I went with my pencil skirt and Forever New waistcoat.  I love the drama that the red tie and shoes add

Last but certainly not the least we have me in a gorgeous Shrivan & Narresh purple and green maxi. Just look at the colors!!!

The ZYNG Calendar was launched on the 26th of January at Olive restaurant and bar by Boman Irani and Farah Khan . Here are some pictures from the event. Enjoy!
