    Yes, I do. She is appropriately dressed for a book launch. A little too grey and black, but she pulls it off.

    I love the sari – why doesn’t one see more saris like this on ladies from the entertainment business? They’re classy and have an elegant sex appeal.

    she looks nice.. but the purse is outdated. 80s style…

    I’ve always loved nandita’s eye make up… it makes her look so sexy and elegant at the same time,
    Love the sari.. Perfect for the occasion, its nice the way she kept the accesories minimal… It goes with the sari really good…

    Could you please tell what type of sari she is wearing – also could you also give more details of similar ethinic type of saris – fabricwise and whet-to-buy – am no good at draping a sari – but I love what she is wearing – so looking for something in cotton or light silk easy to wear … thanks.

    she looks goos. but wish she was carrying a muted red bag or wearing a big red bindi — would have made it pop

    Really love this style. Classic, simple and elegant. Very difficult for Nandita to go wrong.

    she dresses refreshingly different from all the bollywood women. In the pic she’s looking like a smart young professor.

  28. K at | | Reply

    She’s quite something, isn’t she? I love Nandita, and she mostly wears clothes that she’s comfortable in and that look good on her. (Minus those trousers she wore one time…eek).

    at least she is not looking like a real life version of Manjula here (Apu’s wife in Simpsons)

  30. Megha at | | Reply

    amazing how she makes such a simple (and actually really dull sari) glow with her

    top marks!!!

    @Ngm82 – thanks a lot. I usually shop at Fabindia when I visit India but its usually such a rushed shopping that I never realised that they had sarees.

    Can anyone else give me more suggestions on where I can find elegant/ethinic cotton/silk sarees – easy and light to wear – in Bombay.

  32. Shweta at | | Reply

    If I knew her, I would SO ask her out. Yeah.

  33. Aparna at | | Reply

    One woman who is a effortless beauty all the time.. even in the WTHeyyy moments !! Is this a saree from Fabindia?

  34. FPDP at | | Reply

    Love it! I love the grey saree!

    Nandita Das is one gorgeous woman who is almost 40 but looks 20 ish!!! I like her style of dressing.

  36. pinka at | | Reply

    @ Jayanti = cant believe she is turning 40, look at those arms….soooo 20ish….
    though i do feel dat jus becoz she works in art movies, doesnt mean she always has to dress etnic n stuff…wish she wuld move beyond indian clothes n do some classic western…wish wish wish

    she definitely 100% needed makeup, and look at the lips she should try some other shade.

    my mom has a sari similar to this

    well she looks like a lady

    * she here meant for nandita das

    i must say that i remember seeing her a few times before

    she really is sensible when it comes to choosing outfits(it suits her looks) unlike sonali kulkarni , who i do not know why chooses hideous “costumes”
