In Cue

Loved this dress on Anushka. However, the Cue dress stood out like a sore-thumb at an event where everyone else was in their Indian-wear best. Bad call Ms. Sharma.

  1. Very few of the men were in Indian wear. They were all in suits, or dress pants and dress shirts.

    I really don’t like the double standard. I know it’s how Indian society is, but woman shouldn’t be criticized for not wearing Indian–not until the same is done with men. That will never happen– Barring Government functions (where men are somewhat also expected to wear Indian/Indian inspired wear) So why judge women differently?

    The criticism *should* be that it was too casual, while most others were more dressed up.

    • Bravo Lin! I absolutely agree. Why is it that in India women are always expected to be traditional and preserve the culture, but men aren’t held up to the same expectations?

      I dont think Anushka should have worn a casual dress to the Sangeet, but I dont think any of the men should have worn their suits to the event either.

      Look how dapper Imran was compared to the other men!!! I love desi clothes done that way- event appropriate and at the same time not too ornate. That boy has excellent taste in Indian clothes.

      • Agree with u. Lets not say “dont criticise woman till men change their ways” instead lets criticise men till they start wearing indian wear.
        And it should be also APPROPRIATE indian wear. Otherwise, everyone starts wearing sherwanis. Because if men from kerela, karnataka, TN, SP start wearing ONLY sherwanis, its equivalent to them wearing suits. They got to preserve their veshtis etc too.

    • Hear, hear. It’s remarkable how rarely Indian men take the effort to match their attire to the degree of formality or to the type (Indian, western, regional, etc.) that the event demands. Even the rare times they wear Indian clothes, it’s usually a standard Nehru collared suit or a bandhgala. There are so many different types of Indian formal clothes for men, but there’s a whole tradition being lost out by the ubiquity of the ‘shirt/pant’ dressing style.
      And Indian women, of course, are *expected* to wear event appropriate clothes, or their families and the media (not HHC :), but cr***y daily newspapers & TV channels) screams about how they’re singlehandedly destroying Indian culture.

      • I agree. It’s such a shame how little Men’s Indian wear is appreciated. There’s really no better way to put it:
        “there’s a whole tradition being lost out by te ubiquity of the ‘shirt/pant’ dressing style.

        As Chocolate Martini said, the ideal preference is ethnic for all or most. I love it when I see men wearing more traditional wear. But as long as the men are wearing boring suits (and most of them are in more casual suits), no way should a woman be expected to wear Indian.

  2. *had to correct some typos (missing punctuation marks) thus the double post* sorry

    • I absolutely agree with you Lin! Especially when people like Sohail Khan show up at weddings in torn jeans and chappals and 90% of the men are wearing western wear, why point out that the other women in are in their Indian wear best in Anushkas case…I do agree that she could have worn a more formal western outfit, but she still looks really cute.

    • exactly. I wld be soooo embarrassed to be photographed like this at someone’s wedding and be the odd one out. Probably this was the most embarrassing moment of her life.

      But like the rest, i do feel Indian men should wear Indian wear more. But not that men from south start wearing bandh galas or sherwanis. Its not traditional because such clothes never belonged to southern India, nor does it suit the climate. They always look handsome in their style clean white sarong style dhotis or veshti. Same for guys from other parts of India which have other traditional Indian wear.

  3. I get that her style is simple but for a wedding reception this really is a bad call. I saw her on tv the other day. Even when she is hosting at awards i feel she is very under dressed! You can keep it simple, elegant and still very glamorous!

  4. She’s such a careful dresser, what the hey happened here?? Mayb if he do ask her, we’ll get a cliche response as ‘i just rushed from another event, so didn’t get time to change’ :p

  6. It’s fine for her to wear a Western dress but not this one.
    Her dress looks like a gray flour sack! It’s hideous!
    Just look how amazing Ameesha looked.

  7. While I agree it may look a little casual for a formal event, I think this dress looks great on her..It suits her very well, she takes risks and I like it. Very few people could wear that dress the way she does…It could have been a little tighter around the stomach/chest, thats all
