 HAVING FUN: Sanjana, Shashi and Natty. And to make the event a truly cosmo affair, there were a fair sprinkling of foreigners too.Dressed in their evening best from gowns, to short skirts to suits, the women looked stunning.

The prominent members of the Overseas Women’s Club were in full attendance. While one of them was seen wearing a bright red salwar kameez, another looked gorgeous in a black, heavily embroidered saree but was yet struggling to keep it in place.

While Indian women chose to go Western in their dressing, most firang women went the Indian way. “My husband and I love wine dos and we go to just about every wine do in town. We love food and wine is an inseparable part of our diet. Wine is elegant and good for health. If you drink whiskey you are called a boozer but wine doesn’t give you a high,” said Shireen Malani.

Writer Anitha Nair, all made up and excited about the completion of her next book said that wine drinking has become an integral part of Indian culture. Manjusha Maheswari says she used to drink whiskey but now she prefers wine. “It’s softer in taste and doesn’t leave you tipsy,” she gushes.

Later in the evening, the guests were treated to a pairing of the choicest of wine with food.
