    so gaudy. isn’t seema a fashion designer herself?

    what’s the difference between a gharara and a sharara?

  4. _*Dia*_ at | | Reply

    the neckline on seema is way too deep….like mehr’s and malaika’s…i’m guessing deep neckline was a theme on the sangeet? ;)

    I don’t like the material or kaam on either of these outfits – when done well a gharara/shahrara can look really grand and classy.

    they are both two-legged.. a gharara is just a little tighter from the top part

    I agree, when gharara’s and sharara’s are made of sturdier material (like jamawar, kataan, brocades), they are extremely classy. Heck, South Asia’s entire Mughal History is steeped with Gharara’s and sharara’s and anarkalis. Along with the Sari and shalwar, these are also the basics of South Asian dressing.

    both outfits are horrible.
    wonder whose hand Alvira is holding. her hubby Atul is behind in white

    @blueice: are you sure? Seema’s doesn’t look like pants at all, unless you mean the actual top.

    Thats designer Vikram Phadnis who designed lot of Malaika’s clothes for this wedding.

    That blue is just tacky …Guys if you dont mind, I just have a request. Could you may be mention something like actress alvira….or delhi socialite alvira, just so we know who they are. I am sorry if everybody knows them. Ignore it if its just me…

    I love both their outifit! :) so shiny and blingy…perfect for a wedding

    Alvira’s is awful. Seema’s – I like the colour combination, but very OTT. It could have looked classy.

    Indian Girl: Alvira Agnihothri is Salman Khan’s sister and wife to 90’s actor Atul Agnihothri. Seema Khan is actor/director Sohail Khan’s wife. Sohail Khan is actor Salman Khan’s and Alvira Agnihothri’s little brother. The entire clan is at the wedding of Amrita Arora because Amrita’s older sister, Malaika Arora Khan is Arbaaz Khans wife who is also Salman Khan’s younger brother.

    Damn, i just realized Bollywood is such an incestual industry. They are all married or related to one another.

    Payal yup….thats the diffeence

    @blueice…sharara= lehnga

    gharara=what they wore in umrao jaan….so flary it would be mistaken for a skirt, but its not….I wore one for my sisters wedding… ;)

  18. Fatima at | | Reply

    BTW where is salman khan in all of this?

    with regards to the colour theme, i think the men of the house are wearing white, whilst the others have been told to wear black…if that makes sense…arbaaz n atul are in white, so if suhail n sallu also turn up in it i’d assume thats what was ritten on the invites….

    who are these ppl?? and why is seema khan trying to outshine the bride with her bling??

  20. pdaervo at | | Reply

    they are ALL very tawdry

    Shararas are lehengas with a gathered, ruched joint at the knee, from where it flares out like a trumpet skirt

    Ghararas are shararas that have been split into pants

    The loose, trailing pants (with so much gher you had to carry the extra fabric on one arm) that they used to wear in Lucknow, and which you see in Umrao Jaan, are called Farshi Payjamas. They essentially look almost identical to farshi ghararas

    Lengha is like a skirt but more straight, not much gather.

    I quite like the colors in Seema Khan’s outfit, but the whole effect is…overwhelming!
    No wonder Saif came prepared with sunglasses to this night-time event…smarrrt boy…

    I’m making all my cousins/bridesmaids wear ghararas at my wedding. They’re so underrated these days! Brownie point to Alvira for the attempt.

    they are WTHey, but i like the color combination in the ghaghra, i just wish it was toned down and used in better way

  25. suchi at | | Reply

    actually like seem’s color combo

  26. Indian Girl at | | Reply

    @SH : LOL !! Thank you !!

  27. PeachBellini at | | Reply

    personally, i find ghararas and shararas akin to tents. in fact, they make the women inside them look a bit dumpy. they just dont have any shape.

  28. KK at | | Reply

    Their outfits look so cheap with the kind of shiny material they used!! Seema’s outfits got way too much going on–WAY TOO MUCH!

  29. s at | | Reply

    Sharara is what Alvira is wearing .
    Sharara is not a regular lehanga it’s divided like loose pants .

    i am with Indian Girl. if i don’t know who the person is, it just puts me off … and lately, i have no idea who these people are.

    A helpful tip for indian girl and rr: I don’t know a lot of the people featured here besides the obvious ones. So I just google them.

  32. lallu at | | Reply

    I think alvira is the one with sharara — remember the lesserknown shetty (shamita?) worea similar outfit and danced to Sharara sharara in a long forgotten moovie of uday chopra!!!!

  33. Indian Girl at | | Reply

    Anon – LOL ! Ofcourse, very helpful :) But yeah sometimes all I get is alvira seen here with malaika, seent here, at this party…no one really tells who she is. And since they are not like popular bollywood people….sometime you have go through pages and Pages to know who they are.

  34. mg at | | Reply

    @ Indian Girl, sometimes wikipedia is useful to get to know who these people are.

  35. mizmoonlight at | | Reply

    I actually like how Seema is looking (blush ***)

  36. pritha at | | Reply

    wat a contrast…seema’s over blingy attire and her hubby’s out for a casual attire…dnt they co-ordinate at all!?!?!??!?!?!

  37. Fatima at | | Reply

    @ lallu…sharara, if i’m not mistaken, means glitter sparkle etc, so that song had nothing to do wih what she wore… :)

    Shararas are more like flared palazzo pants, whereas ghararas are pants that are fitted to the knee and flare dramatically beyond the knee.
