Mallika: Front Row At Fashion Week

BCBG Max Azria kicked off Fashion Week with an eclectic front row including Leigh Lezark, Lynn Collins and Indian actress Mallika Sherawat.

Minutes after walking out of New York Fashion Week hand-in-hand with designer Max Azria, Mallika Sherawat told DNA from NY that the famed designer will be crafting her outfits.

For the uninitiated, Max's fashion house BCBG MaxAzria is considered one of the most sough-after fashion houses in the world and his various labels are patronized by top Hollywood actresses like Angelina Jolie

"It was lovely meeting Max at the New York Fashion Week. It was him who had invited me. He paid me so many compliments and then said that he wants to design for me," says Mallika.

But apart from designing for her, Max is also keen to induct her as the Indian face of his fashion house. Sources revealed that Max has asked Mallika to walk the ramp for him for his upcoming show in Paris which the actress has readily accepted and has instructed her agents to work out the dates.

Confirms Mallika, "It will be an honour for me to represent such a talented designer who has dressed all the top Hollywood stars. Regarding walking the ramp for him, it's still a work in progress." Mallika and Max are set to have a meeting about the deal which might also see Mallika in print ads for the fashion house which would be published in leading fashion magazines.

Mallika attends Inglorious Basterds Premiere

Mallika Sherawat weared a scandalous dress for the premiere of Quentin Tarantino’s film Inglourious Basterds. The hot lady from Bollywood grabbed many eyeballs with her superhot black dress that appeared scissored off from her mid-riff to her thighs. And the Hisss Highness’s modesty was covered by what appeared to be black knickers underneath the velvety dress.
Mallika apparently had trouble deciding what to wear to the premiere. On the morning of the premiere, she wrote on her Twitter page: “What shud I wear 2 the Tarantino premiere 2nite? Wud sssomething ssscandalous B appropriate?”
Expectedly, she chose a scandalous dress and later even felt that she had gone too far with the outfit.
“Hangin out in th limo on th way2 th Inglourious Basterds premiere. Wait til all u Tweeps c the dress I’m wearing! I thnk I went2far ths tym!” she later tweeted

‘Jai Ho Los Angeles’: Mallika Honorary Citizen of LA

LOS ANGELES — Flanked by city councilmen Tom LaBonge and Jose Huizar, Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat was made an honorary citizen of Los Angeles during ceremonies Aug. 14 in the Los Angeles city council chamber here.

Calling her the “original Bollywood bombshell” who has taken “the world by storm,” and the first actress from the Indian film industry to be honored as such by the city, Huizar declared that Sherawat was being recognized for her “extraordinary career and her charitable efforts.”

LaBonge weighed in by proclaiming that Sherawat “is going to make people a better life, not only as an actor but as a humanitarian.”

Later, during the official photo session with composer Yanni, who has invited Sherawat to participate on his next album in India, LaBonge gave Sherawat his card in case “you have an problems on Second Street, Third Street or Fourth Street,” he quipped.

Upon accepting the award, Sherawat noted that the day for her was an “auspicious occasion” since it was the eve of India Independence Day, and expressed the hope that the “friendship between India and the United States continue as well as the collaboration between Hollywood and Bollywood in creating great art and cinema for everyone throughout the world.”

She concluded her brief speech by “dedicating this award to the millions of NRIs who came here before me, and this is how I hope to follow in your footsteps,” she said, adding that she plans to make Los Angeles her new home.

Given that “Jai Ho” has become the signature catchphrase from the Oscar winning film “Slumdog Millionaire,” “I will say ‘Jai Ho’ Los Angeles!” Sherawat said.

Now that she has become an honorary citizen of Los Angeles, India-West asked if she has any plans of officially becoming an American citizen.

“I think it’s on the way right now,” Sherawat replied. “Los Angeles is my home now, and I feel thankful and grateful for this acknowledgement. I’m really lucky. I must have done something right.”
