The Festival Circuit

Comment image 28

It’s been a busy time for director Aparna Sen who first attended the IView Film Festival in New York in September and then the Chicago South Asian Film Festival in Oct. She paired her red (bomkai?) sari with silver jewellery the first time around and then a gold choker at the Chicago appearance. Love the sari. The jewellery, not so much.

Accompanying her at New York was daughter Konkona, who picked an orange one with a pink border and pallu. Of the four ladies, we know which one we loved the least. It was Raajeshwari’s. Would’ve loved Deepti if she added some drop earrings with hers.

    • Agree! Rajeswari’s sari is the least pretty. Aparna and konkana looks awesome and dipti’s look is good too but the sari is not draped that well.

  1. I think Rajeshwari looks lovely, coincidentally I met her at a party in LA a couple of days ago , she was glowing and absolutely beautiful!

  2. – All look great.
    – My fav is Konkana. She makes an average saree look awesome ! She is not the typical hindi movie actress but she is sooooo pretty ! Her mom looks great too !
    – Deepthi’s saree would have looked nicer if she draped it nicer and wore some earrings. It looks..hate to use this way of description…”widow-ish”.
    – Raageswari’s saree i dislike..

  3. Agree with KS, prefer all the rest to Rajeshwari’s. I don’t know about the drop earrings, I think Deepti looks lovely and simple and the best -forgot how understatedly elegant she has always been.

  4. I think Aparna Sen’s is a kanjeevaram. They all look good, dignified and classy. Raageshwari’s saree looks odd but she looks nice.
    Yay to handloom sarees!!

  5. for some one newly married, i think konkona looked a little dressed down but i am loving all of them. the look here is signature aparna sen look .
    btw i think u made a mistake, its Rajeshwari Sachdev

  6. Just goes to show how stunning “plain” sarees can look!
    I like Konkana’s because of the lovely pink–sometimes these sarees can look matronly, but she gets it right.

    Raageshwari Sachdev obviously didn’t get the memo about the arty look everyone was going for.

    • I think either a statement necklace or at least some earrings would have looked lovely, but I agree that her saree is the best of the lot, love aparna’s too but the black/red combo is a bit more common

  7. Aparna’s Saree is a traditional South Silk (heavy variety) very popular in Bengal (not Bomkai)…
    both the mother daughter duo looks lovely.
    between why Aprna changed the neck piece in the same event with a same saree? she looks great in both though

  8. girls girls girls! you cannot run a fashion blog and go about mistaking a kanjeevaram for a bomkai. that is utter travesty i say! fashion must understand textile just as much as brands.or maybe more!
