Khan was born in India and grew up surrounded by the beauty of the country’s culture, architecture, history and design. He cultivated his vast knowledge of textiles under the watchful eyes of his grandfather and father. They are both well-known in India for designing intricate clothing worn by the royal families. As a child, Khan recalls being mesmerized by the beadwork produced in their workshops. From a young age, he always knew he wanted to be a part of their intensely visual medium. When he moved to the U.S. in his teen years, he interned for Halston, which is where he absorbed the ethos of modern restraint and the secrets of draping and cutting fabric to create a clean, elegant, timeless silhouette. Between the opulent but aesthetically opposite worlds of his father and Halston, Khan’s style was nurtured and his aesthetic was born. He also has a bridal line. Today, his clothes are sold at top stores globally, including Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Ask the actor what made him realise that Akanksha was the one for him and he replies, "It was the first spark I felt when I met her. I have worked with many good-looking people, but meeting her was different. I knew instantly that this is the girl I would want to spend the rest of my life with. One thing led to another and now we are getting married," he says, adding, "Akanksha is fun-loving like me and we have similar sensibilities. In a way, she completes me. I am reserved, while she is more social and outgoing."

For their trousseau, the couple has steered clear off matching their outfits. "We have planned everything together, right from the venue to our trousseau, and no, they are not colour co-ordinated." Their wedding card has generated a lot of curiosity. It has their caricatures on every leaf. He informs, "I didn't want a run-of-the-mill wedding card. Being a little creative, I decided to make it funny and cute at the same time. My concept for the theme is the release of a big film, which Akanksha executed."

While they have taken a 20-day off from work, their honeymoon will be delayed. Gaurav says, "Both of us are stuck with our TV commitments. Honeymoon will have to wait as we will be visiting our relatives after the wedding. We plan to go on a long honeymoon once we get some time off from work."

Fashion photographer Sarah Moon launches Nars beauty collection


If successful branding is all about story telling, then a new collection from make-up brand NARS should be a sell-out. It brings the work one of fashion’s most distinctive but enigmatic photography talents, Sarah Moon, to a new audience. Moon once worked with Guy Bourdin, and her style is as distinctive, if less well known than her legendary mentor.

Together with the brand’s founder, make-up artist and photographer, François Nars, Moon conceived and art-directed the range; from the colours to the packaging to the theme for the campaign; inspired by imagery from the 1927 film, Metropolis and the idea of transparency.

For those not familiar with Moon, she came to prominence in the 1980’s and 90’s. Her work is painterly and otherworldly, like forgotten daguerreotypes unearthed from the 19th century. Nars himself says, “she works in a very specific world; very intimate, full of softness and beauty – like a dream world.”

Though the two had never met in person, they had mutual friends and Moon was aware that Nars was a fan, as Patti Wilson, (who also styled the campaign) told her, and eventually brought the pair together. Speaking of Moon as one of his photographic heroes Nars said; “I was obsessed with [her] work. I was looking at magazines constantly when I was younger, trying to figure out how the makeup and lighting was used.”

The products themselves cover everything needed to create a theatrically romantic look – matte eyeliner pencils, eye and cheek palettes in dusky pinks and reds, fluttery false lashes and matte lipsticks in various deep tones.

Moon described the process of product development; “we talked about the idea of a kind of mist around the eyes and worked from there. Nothing too obvious, nothing too strident. Just enhancing the woman’s natural features.” Above all, she said “We wanted to tell a story of an authentic woman. Any makeup she is wearing is never a mask. We really collaborated to find this woman that was delicate, yet strong and always very modern.”
