Kajol is in New York attending a series of events at the United Nations for the ‘Help A Child Reach 5’ campaign. The actor who is brand ambassador for Lifebuoy will help promote hand washing to reduce child mortality.

While one appearance saw her in a Prabal Gurung, the other was in a black Sabyasachi. While we hunt for full-lengths, here’s your glimpse of her from the two events. Doesn’t she look great in the Sabya?

  1. The first one is the Black Wool Crepe Sheath with Metallic and Neon Tweed Inserts from Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2013 Collection. Sarah Jessica Parker wore that dress when she appeared in Glee.

  2. That rose is ridiculous. She’s at the UN, for Chrissake, not on the beach or at a flamenco party. Completely inappropriate. Like Amber says, I wish she’d worn the Prabal Gurung instead of that lace saree.

    • Its the Lifebuoy colour:-) Seriously tacky.

      sigh cant these folk do anything without being associated with a brand. Like first being part of a campaign for ensuring running water….

      • Like talking at Columbia or the UN is going to make kids in Dharavi wash their hands more often.
        I wish they would take the example of Matt Damon who actually walks his talk, no “sponsors” needed. He’s his own ambassador, and he gets stuff done, period.

  3. I love the Prabal Gurung dress. It looks good with a belt on the model – wish Kajol had added one.

    The look in the black sari is altogether too theatrical for an UN event.

  4. I understand that it’s wonderful to see Indian celebs wearing ethnic wear at international events (think Nandita Das, Sharmila Tagore etc.) but I much prefer her in the Prabal Gurung. She looks fresh, clean and natural there. The black sari-red lip-red flower is so jarring and inappropriate.

  5. i disagree with u Payal. i think she looks better in Prabal gurung. the only good abt the sabya look makeup n nails..saree is okayish! may be too monotonous..! but yeah she does look lovely!!

  6. Love the Prabul dress. She actually looks quite nice in the saree. It’s the hair and flower that kills it. Love those bangles. Ash would have rocked this look.

  7. This is ridiculous. Apart from the fact that this whole black net sari and flower in the hair look is tacky on its own, the fact that she wore it while giving a speech at the UN amazes me. I’m all for Indian celebs wearing Indian designers whenever they go abroad for an event, but it just reeks of insecurity when they call up their designers for an event that has actually nothing to do with how they look, but is more of what an impact their Bollywood name can make. If you see celebs like Angelina Jolie and others who do major work with the UN, they already know their place and role and don’t land up wearing a Versace gown to scream that I’m an actress. If she had worn a cotton sari and was normal, it would have looked so much more appropriate.

  8. Kajol – Please look at Angelina Jolie….learn to dress for the event! This is a formal event. Why not dress as the event demands? Too filmy!

  9. Sabyasachi is a brilliant designer but he has a very limited range. Stylists just go by his name. His clothes and accessories have its own place and purpose. One can not wear them to Cannes or UN.
    Kajol is looking ridiculous in that black ensemble. looks like she will break into flamenco number in the middle of her speech. :-)
