    this is a billion miles ahead of her recent spottings, but do wish she was wearing a bindi.

      she is wearing a bindi.

  7. Bsimple at | | Reply

    @Jasmine…it seems like she is wearing a bindi…a really tiny one…the camera catches the sparkle if you look closely at pics 2 and 3 :) I think it’s a little yellow bindi…and yes, she looks great! :)

    1. Jasmine at | | Reply

      yes, i half-recognised that could be a bindi — but wish it was something large and round and purple ;) or even a small dot in purple :)

    aah..she looks lovely..wonder why do they choose MM saris again and again, when they have options like these available..

    1. Bhavana at | | Reply

    this took my breath away ! So lovely ! Yay for chosing the traditional saree with the traditional zig zag pattern and traditional colours. Gorgeous totally !
    2 “rooms” for improvement – different colour for hair and bindi.

      Agree. Such a classical Indian beauty. Would love to see her in her natural hair color.

  18. kanika at | | Reply

    not liking the green blouse… wish she had worn a golden/yellow blouse..

    why such a small insignificant bindi…

  19. aalia at | | Reply

    fantastic- without the silly wig and ill fitted clothes
    indian women look best in clothes

  20. parveen at | | Reply

    this indeed is beauty!!

  21. Jay at | | Reply

    Are you serious? The hair colour is such a clashing mess against the sari… it has to go!! pleasee! It even takes away from her beautiful face…

  22. sanam at | | Reply

    She looks absolutely stunning! Love the saree aswell..such a beautiful colour combo

  23. dn at | | Reply

    Beautiful Kanjeevaram, love the colours. I know a lot of people with this type of saree, I have a variation of it myself.

  24. MochaLatte at | | Reply

    After the purple tent, this is a breath of fresh air. She looks oh-so-beautiful.

  25. SS at | | Reply

    Both her and the saree are stunning! love the minimal jewellery, wish she’d do something about that hair…starting to look shabby, Mrs. Rai-B!

  26. Nalini at | | Reply

    Beautiful, wish we could see the full lenth- looks like the green is on pallu

  27. apsara77 at | | Reply

    LOVE this saree and Aish looks so gorgeous in it. I never thought that the combination of green and purple would work, but it so does! She looks so elegant and charming!

  28. viz at | | Reply

    elegance is an attitude :)

  29. Kriti at | | Reply

    I went WOW!!!
    You hardly see anyone in these elegant traditional sarees these days. Its just so perfect, hair jewelry makeup everything. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

  30. shriya at | | Reply

    love it! so classy and elegant!

  31. wannabe at | | Reply

    Hey P&P is it possible to get a full length pic of her, I want to see her sari…its beautiful!!

  32. ak at | | Reply

    excellent saree. my only gripe is that the blouse pattern is a bit too busy against the border draped across her chest. but SUCH a small point – arb always looks stunning when she chooses traditional weaves – when she tries too hard to look trendy and modern is where she always goes wrong.

  33. Janani at | | Reply

    I just wore the same saree to my brother’s wedding a few days ago!! Couldn’t believe it when I spotted it on HHC on my most recent visit. I loved the color and simple yet beautiful work.

    1. Nalini at | | Reply

      If u don’t mind- where did u buy the sari from :-)

      1. KS at | | Reply

        As someone else mentioned below Nalli is a great place for kanji sarees but if you don’t live down south you can try handloom exhibitions or stores they sure have it.

      2. Janani at | | Reply

        Don’t mind at all. We got in Kancheevaram, on a visit to buy sarees for the wedding. The selection and variety in Kancheevaram is pretty vast compared to some of the stores I visited in Chennai.

  34. Rashmi at | | Reply

    Where can I buy those earrings? please tell me!!! thank you!

  35. unfortunatejunkfoodie at | | Reply

    i got mine from Nalli, the grand old store for traditional sarees….wonder where hers is from, DEFINTELY not an MM creation. love the earrings too!

  36. suchi at | | Reply

    stunning! just wish she wore a simple necklace too

  37. The Housewife at | | Reply

    Love love it! :) I have such a soft spot for traditional silks… so amazing!

  38. Shi at | | Reply

    love it every south indian has this exact saree….mine is in a deep bottle green with maroon border and blouse

  39. shruti at | | Reply

    I loved the fact she went with Traditional Indian sari and not her usual filmy MM. However I feel she had way too much makeup on > I saw jaya & shweta’s pics next to her and they looked so elegant, graceful & Natural.
    I would love to see ash look more natural. No doubt she looks pretty here but I feel with less makeup she will look even better and real.

  40. pipita at | | Reply

    Thank you Ash for not wearing another Manish Malhotra sari. this sari looks great!

  41. sri at | | Reply

    I have a purple saree with green border. Looks stunning as here. its a lightweight Poona saree and pretty cheap. Sometimes it all about the colors we choose not necessarily what type.

  42. CK at | | Reply

    Aishwarya looks lovely in the barney colors

  43. Divya Ramanan at | | Reply

    Love the saree. the colours, the bindi , the bindi colour and the temple border of the saree. Kanjeevaram rocks!! She looks like a typical south Indian here and of course looks lovely!!!

  44. Flaneur at | | Reply

    this just reinstates my theory:when it comes to sarees there is nothing that can match up to our traditional fare…sabyasachi being the only designer who is an exception…n maybe the odd anamika khanna…but otherwise no one really…

    ash really looks divine…the only grouse is the hair colour…

  45. Adit at | | Reply

    love it, I am soooooo glad the Bolly girls …are going away from the chamak dhamak…heavy garish embroidery, and OTT sarees to more simple classics….kudos to her and Rani and Vidya.. way to go girls….Urmila, and Kat are you listening…

  46. SS at | | Reply

    This is pretty common design for a Kanchi, definitely not something unique, exclusive or designer about this saree. Neverthless it is striking, bold and makes a huge statement! I love the fact that she can go from designer clothes and sarees to something that a common person can find and wear! Kudos for wearing a gorgeous kanchi saree and bringing exposure to these traditional looms! She has made a traditional saree modern with the minimal jewellery and simple styling and make up! Kudos, Aish! you and your saree rock!

  47. Indu at | | Reply

    thank god she is wearing a traditional kanjeevaram sari…instead of those strapless onesshe has been wearing to the national functions!
