Italian helmets with an ethnic Indian touch When the Italian government passed the bike-helmet law, designer Giuliana Cella decided to add colour to the drab object and launch her line of designer helmets - inspired by the headgear of Indian princes. "Helmets do not let you be beautiful," she says about why she has launched fancy helmets. Cella's line called 'Bike Couture' is as sturdy as the standard helmet, but she makes them distinctive by wrapping them with rare garments she uses for all her dresses. The rigid crown of the accessory has six covers made of Rajasthani brocade, Ashanti strips, Punjab embroidery, antique Benares saris, Bhatinda 'phulkari' and Indonesian silk batik - all unique fabric from India, the Far East and Africa. Highlighting the eclecticism of this object and its surface, which offers so much scope for imagination, she has even created a bridal helmet with a Kerala veil from India. "I had fun," explains Cella, "turning an indispensable but unattractive object into something with a fancy, historical and handcrafted look. Inspired by Indian princes, I tried to transform this everyday object into an enchanting turban, because I love beauty even in the most functional objects. Besides I want technology to have a more human look," she adds. The helmets can be personalised with whatever fabric people fancy. It will be on sale from March 2002.

Winds Of Change The days of the old style Miss World pageant are over for good. Julia Morley, the lady behind the contest has vowed to revamp the old format, which she believes is 'awful' and 'outdated', and introduce a new concept. Julia's husband Eric Morley had started the world famous contest 50 years ago and Julia took over from him after his death last year just a couple of days before Miss World 2000 was to be held. Julia reveals that it was very unnatural to her to see the girl contestants, skimpily clad in their swimsuits, turn around and around and flaunt their curvaceous bodies on stage while the questioner, formally dressed in a diner jacket, asked them the senseless questions like 'What did you have for breakfast?. Julia gets blatant to the point of calling it all 'stupid'. "I don't want swimsuit walking on stage. That is old and definitely out," says the woman in-charge of the forthcoming Miss World 2001. Now that she has the leverage over the yearly-held pageant Julia has developed a new concept for the show. She has come up with a concept of 'beauty with purpose' and is discussing the ways to do something towards contestant's education and scholarship. Besides this she has also stopped the publication of the contestants vital statistics. While the precise format for this year's Miss World contest is yet to be announced Julia says the old format won't be abandoned completely. So beware all the Priyanka Chopras of the future. Winning the Miss World tiara is going to be much more a matter of brains than beauty only.
