We went to see the Project Bhutan Season 2 fashion show held at Termalingka yesterday and none was more envious than my daughter who cried that she wanted to be a fashionista. As soon as they began, I saw several guys clicking away with lenses that would have looked like rifles to my great great grandmother but nonethless, I took out my pistol and took some pictures myself. The show began with the kids gracing the stage and the audience oohhed and ahhed at the cuteness of it all, followed by determined young adults who tried their best to conceal the anxiety and the fear of being in the spotlight. But our adult models were the best...and to think we have a pool of such beauty and confidence, all in a blink of an eye and when Miss India 2011 and the Indian supermodel set the  stage on fire, they reminded me of Ostriches... although it's odd to be putting ostriches and fire in one sentence.

Of course, despite their laudable effort, there were few glitches as is wont to be in many Bhutanese events.  In the midst of the show, we were thrown a "mystery question  of the century" by the host when she said "Now we will have on stage a singer whose last name rhymes with Panda." Such moments remind me that beauty is hardly ever a substitute for wit.  The music stopped midway twice, leaving the models to fend for themselves, while one of them who appeared to me like the showstopper had a piece of dangling costume that is sure to have caught many disapproving eyes and I hope Paljor Gyabak will be a gentleman next time and let the designer exit the stage first.

Following are some pictures from the show but let me remind you that I am not a good one at photography..

This beautiful girl in the picture above was the reason why I had to tag along with her mom to attend the show at all but boy, I thought she was a bundle of wildfire and I was mighty proud of her.

The session in the picture above with ladies clad in what seems to me like a lady gaga inspired costume was a sizzler and better even, casts an interesting shadow. I only hoped for their sake that the headgears weren't too heavy.

By the time we headed home, it was 9.30 PM and our stomachs were roaring. Still, I was quite pumped up by the show that I must have been catwalking in my sleep and by the time I realized so, I was midway falling  from my bed and ended up going to work today with a sprained thumb...
