The little black dress has a rich history and you will be in the exalted company of Audrey Hepburn, no less - who made the black dress so famous.

But looking for the perfect black setup is not going to be easy. After all - every designer is not a Givenchy! Some will be too short, some will be too slitty, some necklines might actually touch your navel while some might presume that everyone who prefers a LBD is Audrey Hepburn. So unless you want to look smarty instead of slutty - try out all the LBDs you can get your hands on - there might just be the perfect one for you there somewhere!

BEST REVIEW - TOP 3 HARRY POTTER BOOKS

Who says Harry potter is just for teenagers? I have loved the series from day 1 and waited and waited for the books to come out when Rowling was in the middle of the series. However the movies dont really do justice to the complicated world of Harry Potter. They are good - but not really classic like the books. So if you have heard of Harry Potter - first read the books before getting hold of the DVD!

Watching India Win The World Cup 2011

(Some portions of the article originally published at Xomba.com - http://tinyurl.com/3ep62c4)
 
Is Tendulkar the greatest of them all? His teammates think so. They chaired him around the grounds and acknowledged his contribution to Indian cricket in public. I am sure no accolade in sports is greater than the one given by teammates - with whom one has toiled and sweated for years. It would have been pretty unfair if the 38 year old were to retire without THE Chalice in his hand!

This article is however just my first hand experience of watching India win the Cup - not on Tendulkar.


I was not savouring the win from a box seat with the celebrities at Mumbai Wankhede Stadium - but the view and emotions from my sofa seat at home, watching with friends was just amazing. India won the Cricket World Cup after 28 long years. We have grown up remembering the moment when a smiling Kapil Dev with Mohinder Amarnath beside lifted the trophy 28 years back on 25th June, 1983 - while firecrackers went off outside and the drawing room literally exploded! Then we have spent decades watching TV replays of the same images of Kapil Dev spraying champagne and lifting the trophy!

Now finally after a wait of almost three decades the images will be changed and hopefully India wont have to wait too long to savour another such moment of cricket glory!  Instead we will have replays of Tendulkar being chaired by teammates, the team all speaking for each other, Dhoni keeping a low profile and not really (or at all) hogging all the limelight - and everyone saying it is for Tendulkar. It is for India too.

The Man of the day is undoubtedly M.S. Dhoni. India's coolest captain by far. He is also the bravest, luckiest, smartest and the best. In four years of captaincy when he started out as the T20 Captain - Dhoni has got the T20 World Cup for India, Made India the No. 1 test team, won the IPL and ICL trophies for his Chennai team and now finally the biggest of them all - the Cricket World Cup with a super duper innings of 91! I think he should just retire and savour his victories - he has won 'em all!

Dhoni was undoubtedly brave today - coming out to play in the finals with India needing 160 odd runs with 3 wickets down. He was not in form, he wouldnt have been blamed if he had come down the order. Maybe he remembered Yuvraj's duck against Pakistan or just decided to tease the opposition with the thought of Yuvraj and Raina still being in the pavilion. Whatever, he decided to come after the third wicket fell and took the game away from Sri Lanka with an awe inspiring chanceless innings of class and bravery. lets not forget Gambhir's innings of 97 or the 83 runs partnership between Gambhir and Kohli. Zaheer and co too did a great job restricting the strokeplay of the openers while Sangakkara was snapped by team mascot Yuvraj Singh. Even Sreesanth had his use. He is apparently the team's lucky charm!

Just another thought that no one will be voicing - would India have won if Sachin had scored a century - unless Sachin carried his bat through. Some kind of atrophy seems to seize the rest of the team the moment the great man performs! All in all I am happy - the team still managed to win inspite of the moment of despair at 31 - 2!


Here is the India vs Sri Lanka Final scorecard of the ICC World Cup Cricket 2011 Finals.

India Win ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 - See Photos!

This has been an amazing Indian win in the Cricket world Cup!

For me the moments of the World Cup that stand out are

  • Dhoni coming out to bat at No 4 in the Finals after a torrid time throughout the World Cup and taking the team to a Wow win!
  • Kohli and Gambhir 80 odd runs partnerships after the glam openers were out
  • Zaheer Khan containing the dangerous Lankan openers
  • Yuvraj getting Sangakkara's wicket

and more moments from the month long World Cup

  • Yuvraj's fifties and gritty century before getting his fluency back against the Aussies
  • Yuvraj and Raina's partnership against Australia in the Quarter Finals
  • Zaheer Khan's bowling
  • Tendulkar batting throughout the Competition
  • Munaf Patel and Ashish Nehra's astonishing bowling spells against Pakistan in the Semi finals
  • Sehwag's 175 against Bangladesh
  • Sehwag and Tendulkar blitzkrieg against South Africa

Well done India!
