"Movies are next to religion in India," said Suneet Varma yesterday. The go-to designer for every Bollywood actress has outfitted India's most glam for decades, dressing socialites and stars for every major wedding in India (and even one in Versailles,) and styling everyone from Aishwarya Rai on the cover of Vogue India (out next month,) to Cindy Crawford for Omega. Now Varma gears up for another high-spangled event: The Bollywood Music and Fashion Awards, which happen on Saturday. Held in Atlantic City, the festival celebrates the jewel-toned explosion of music, movies, and incredibly gorgeous girls that define the sparkly film genre - and the Indian designer is one of its defining aesthetes. Tips, the Blockbuster-y Bollywood production house, has just signed Suneet as the exclusive costume designer of three developing films to be released next year, the first of which will feature mega-star Bipasha Basu. And Suneet may soon become a household name in America, since he's currently in talks to dress some Hollywood actresses for the Oscars (the rumor goes: blonde, thin, amazingly funny). Is this the year that Carolina Herrera and Valentino get overthrown on the red carpet by a little bit of Bombay? --NATALIE HORMILLA
