Elle’s angels

Pink was the colour of choice at the Elle Carnival for a Cause at the Taj. This much-awaited event on the social calendar was abuzz with the women busy shopping and the men drinking. Well, a few good men were also seen browsing through the fashion racks.
It’s nice to note that, through its Fashion Joins Hands Against Breast Cancer initiative, Elle augments work in the area of breast health under the auspices of the Ogaan Cancer Foundation which supports the Women’s Cancer Initiative – Tata Memorial Hospital. Participating designers and brands included Eina Ahluwalia, Masaba Gupta, Da Milano, Gaurav Gupta, Estee Lauder and Za. There was also a silent auction featuring designer merchandise from famed brands like Hermes, Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton.
Of course, the carnival mood prevailed in the 70s-themed look with supporters to the cause like Deveika and Suresh Bhojwani, Nimrat Kaur, Diana Penty, Mandira Bedi, Nisha and Vikram Raizada, Sabina and A D Singh, Narendra Kumar, Sabina and Anil Chopra, Jatin Kampani, Ujjwala Raut, Clint Fernandes, Waluscha De Sousa, Parveen Dusanj and Anjhula Mya Bais enjoying the Saturday high-noon experience.
Tarot-reading, fortune-telling, manicure booths, photo corners and children’s games formed part of the activities. The Taj laid out a lunch buffet and the bars were abuzz with Peroni, Grey Goose and Bombay Sapphire cocktails. After that it was time for siesta.
