Nexa X Shilpa Ahuja @ YouTube Fan Fest, Chennai!

Check out my collaboration with Nexa, featuring Ignis at YouTube Fan Fest, Chennai with Live FB video, carXfashion photo-shoot, and my experience!

Fashion and cars have a close relationship. Fashionable people seem to love cars! And cars seem to be promoted and photographed with hot models! And it’s no surprise that I was quite excited to get the opportunity to collaborate with Nexa at YouTube Fan Fest, Chennai that took place here last Sunday.

Being one of the main event sponsors, Nexa had a lovely stall there, with a brand new and blue model of Ignis, 2018’s It-car for the millennials. The event was going to be quite an evening, with some of South India’s top YouTubers coming for performances and meet and greet sessions. And as I can’t speak or understand Tamil, I wanted to get to know them, listen to their music and get this cultural experience. I was even excited to check the car out!shilpa-ahuja-ytff-chennai-nexa-ignis-collab-youtube-fan-fest

fashion-lifestyle-blogger-car-shoot-shilpa-ahuja-nexa-ignis-indianPeople often think that being a fashion blogger is all about getting dressed, putting makeup on, taking selfies and putting them on social media for likes! But to me, that’s just 1% of my job. As an entrepreneur, it’s a 24×7 job in journalism involving duties from being a CEO to company spokesperson to HR head and mentor to your team to last-minute public appearances! And much, much more! None of that is complaint-worthy, however, when you love doing what you do.  interview-feature-tv-model-shilpa-ahuja-nexa-blogger

It’s quite a blessing, in fact! It was also so great to meet some of our readers, fellow media industry people and the Nexa team. interview-shilpa-ahuja-nexa-2018-youtube-fan-fest-chennai-blogger-collablatest-model-shilpa-ahuja-nexa-ignis-ytff-youtube-fan-fest-chennai-nexa-ignis-review-shilpa-ahuja-chennai-blogger-indiancar-model-shilpa-ahuja-nexa-ignis-ytff-youtube-fan-fest-chennai-2018

Behind the Scenes Video: On Location for a Summer Fashion Shoot

Hey gorgeous! To take you with us on location, we shot a behind the scenes vid while doing the fashion photography of our latest summer shoot. The fashion photo-shoot for the look will be releasing soon, but while you wait for it, check out this video of me posing! Also: I talk about my work, a bit about the philosophy behind ShilpaAhuja.com and what I think personal style is!


Here’s the transcript:

“Hi! I am Shilpa Ahuja and today we’re shooting for a casual look. The mood of this shoot is tropical, natural, with a lot of trees, flowers, butterflies. Very zen! We’re in Auroville, ten minutes away from Pondicherry, in south of India.

ShilpaAhuja.com is all about inspiring confidence through fashion and lifestyle. I believe that fashion is for everyone, regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, skin color and body type. That everyone has the right to style without being judged.

Fashion trends are not meant to make you spend a lot. They just give you a lot of options to experiment with, so that you can spend wisely and choose what suits you best.

I don’t think of myself as a fashion influencer. I am just a style BFF for my readers. Our team does a lot of analysis of runway fashion and we give our own opinion from a fashion outsider’s perspective so that we can help you create your own personal style. For me, personal style is what makes you feel your best, chicest and most confident self. It helps you be happy.”

Who is a Style BFF?

Don’t we all have that one friend in our lives (or at least we need that friend) who gives us honest opinions on our fashion, who we wanna take shopping with us because she always knows what would suit us best, and who we always call for fashion emergencies (what should I wear to meet this new guy?)! Well, that’s what we at ShilpaAhuja.com want to become for you all – your style BFFs. So think of SlubTeam as your style confidantes. We want you to feel your more beautiful self. We don’t want to make choices for you, we don’t want to force any opinion on you. But we want that you should always feel confident about whatever you love to wear. And we love your opinions, too!

So, my angels, I hope you had as much fun watching our behind the scenes video as we had shooting and editing it. Should we make more such behind the scenes vids? Let us know your thoughts @shilpa1ahuja or by commenting on the video. Please do like and share our video.

Feeling Beautiful: Romantic Spring Morning – The Short-Film

shilpa ahuja feeling beautiful romantic spring morning fashion lifestyle beauty makeup video film still 8

The Film

Discover the new short-film ‘Feeling Beautiful: Romantic Spring Morning‘ in collab with Piamony Photography.

Inspiration and Story

It is a feel-good music video about #feelingbeautiful, romantic and awesome!

“This film is about a girl who believes in happiness and love, who believes that the secret to looking beautiful is feeling good and having fun!”

It is about the girl who spends her weekend doing all the things she loves! It is my first music video for this blog, and it was created with the intent to showcase fashion, beauty and lifestyle, but not in the way of a makeup tutorial or a preachy lecture, but something that’s light-hearted  and fun.

Credits

Production and Concept by Shilpa’s Lifestyle Blog & Piamony Photography
Directed by Neena Majumdar
Editing, Hair and Makeup by Shilpa Ahuja
Music by Pink Martini “Sympathique”
