Being the showrunner of her famous label, The House of Masaba, Gupta shows up to work in her casually chic attires that includes oversized shirts and breezy AK-OK kaftans.


But hey, when someone says partay enter Masaba- the glam grenade! Sultry satin gowns with plunging necklines or sheer billowy tops with pearl bralette, she makes every outfit look regular, spiced with generous serves of chunky accessories, her glorious curls and not taking much effort to hide her acne scars! Be real and keep it HOT! 


Neena ji brings the house down with her backless blouses, floral sarees and popping accessories.

Age is just a number, no?

Essaying the role of a key investor of Dhairya Rana in Gupta's firm, Neil's character oozed underline hotness in tailored suits, sleek ties and geek glasses. Oh, but we would love to see him in leather jacket stint again (not just dinner dates) *wink*


Superstar's wife turned therapist, Pooja had her issues of her own but her style statement didn't. Fuaxy printed gowns and kaftans, chunky jewellery, loud makeup and voluminous hairdo, she aces the game like pro. 



Jogi, a happy-go-lucky guy who hates pretence and fake decorations, had a major influence in Smaran's style statement. Loud prints, vibrant stripes and florals, delectable tattos teamed with causal flip flops and moppy hair did all the talking. 


Portraying Gupta's BFF Gia in the webseries, Rytasha make for a casually chic girl in fancy oversized shirts and popping accessories and much ease with occasional bling!

Also, is it just us who digged that ‘Masaba’ ring? If you did too, welcome to the group!


Those who are well versed with the showbiz and fashion world will notice some noteworthy cameos from both the film and fashion fraternity. Stylist Tanya Ghavri made for a blink-and-miss shot in the first few minutes of episode 1…

While Kiara Advani’s self-obsessed version of herself tickled our funny bones. And for sure the delectable Masaba leg show number! 

Farah Khan in a spectacled, bossy verison of herself seems like a spectacular treat for our eyes. 

Even though we couldn’t relate to Shibani Dandekar’s artsy references, her sound style statement made a strong case.

Blurring the lines between reel and real, this one is a highly recommend homegrown series binge, keeping your inner fashionista satiated. Can’t wait for its season 2 already!
