    both looks are boring and busy.
    a saree at Padma awards and a different hair style (messy braid) at the reception may have helped.

    Boring. With better styled hair she would have looked so much better at the wedding.

    Oh dear. Back to the AJSK tents again. She needs to really stop wearing their clothes..they do nothing for her.
    On another not, it never ceases to amaze me how Indian women think it’s perfectly okay to attend other women’s weddings and receptions wearing red bridal outfits. sooooo inappropriate! Expected better from Ms. Rai.

      Umm, I would have thought that red was not to Indian weddings what white is to western ones.

      Often brides wear gold (Soha Ali Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Shilpa Shetty), orange (Kareena Kapoor), pink (Karisma Kapoor), and various other colours. For many western weddings, white is the default colour for a bride. In Indian weddings, on the other hand, brides often decide on a colour since there is no default. I think red is perfectly acceptable as a host, or even as guest.

      And she does not look bridal at all IMHO.

        A lot of brides in the western world do not default to white either for the weddings. many women get married wearing pink, champagne, blush, ivory/off white hues, pale blue, mint, lavender etc. in the West, and guests will generally still not wear white. In India too, red is considered the bride’s color, even if she may not actually be wearing red for her wedding/reception. It’s not a rule set in stone obviously, but people should let the bride have her day, w/o upstaging her or trying to steal her thunder. :-)

    She is a gorgeous woman. But why would someone wear this shade of Red on someone else’s wedding. Isn’t it the bridal color. Just asking.

    deja vu……She looks the same all the time. It’s like she’s caught in a time warp!

    Those colours. Don’t suit her *at all *. I wish she’d try some earthy colours instead of these horrible bright, brassy shades that she prefers. I think it would suit her green eyes and complexion better if she tried ochres, rusts, deeper reds and greens for a change.

    Don’t bother to post in better pics later, what we see is enough to form an opinion. VOTE FOR CHANGE!

    Our eyes are getting tired and we yearn for change but looks like she doesn’t.

    I actually think the lehenga is beautiful. Its really the styling – her hair, make up, drape etc. that are ruining the outfit.

    It is perfectly acceptable for guests to wear red at indian weddings. Especially in this case, ash has kept her hair and accessories simple. If she had worn a mang tikka and tons of jewelry then yea these bride upstaging comments make sense

    P&P, that looks like a floor length anarkali, not a lehenga..
