Sari Style

Comment image 17

For two recent appearances, Vidya paired her saris with a bindi, earrings, a solitary bangle/cuff, ring and braided hair worn to the side. Which of the two looks do you like more?

  1. Both looks not working much. I think the second sari could have looked way better if worn with a diff blouse cut/design with hair in a clean bun or knot.Just my opinion though.

  2. Definitely 2nd. The blouse is modern looking & different from the usual ones she sports. I do wish she had not worn the pallu like that. Why cant she just let it flow?

    • Exactly my beef. I mean, pin it up if you find it too difficult to carry. You would still be yourself, no?

      And to some commentators below, please allow her to have her arm crook. What is wrong with that? That is her body posture. That is like calling someone out over height or colour!

  3. Say what you will about Balan, it is true that she gives hope to a lot of women. As in, the hope that they can always look better than her. I know several women who are well into her 50s, wear a saree regularly and don’t really have the time to wear make-up. But they look better styled than Balan. Thank you Ms.Balan!

  4. Both looks could have been redeemed with better styling. That gorgeous face doesn’t even need much effort. But it’s evidently more effort than she’s willing to take.

  5. She looks completely shabby in both looks. I have nothing against someone wearing sarees all the time, but ppl like nandita das and neha dhupia manage to make it look so neat and elegant. This is frumpy, shabby, unkempt. She is such a good actress, I would hate for her to stop getting movies because she’s stopped making an effort. What has happened to her post marriage?

    • Those are my exact thoughts which I have been mentioning all along. Shabby & unkempt is all we see in each of her appearances. Nandita Das, Konkana, and yes Neha always look so well put together in Desi wear and they keep it real & earthy. Not a mess like this.
