For two wedding receptions in a row, Farah was spotted in black. The saris themselves weren’t interesting much but what was worse was that blouse that she paired ’em both with. It didn’t flatter her one bit. Of the two looks, if we have to pick one, we’re going with the latter. The emerald jewellery set worked with the look better.

  1. I am not a fan of her sari blouse, but if anyone can wear a sari blouse with spaghetti straps it is her. At least her girls are not jetting out from each side . I think she looks nice, I do like her “wedding Jewelry”, although I would have left the watch/bracelet at home. Love her black Dior clutch. Not sure the green BV goes with the emerald jewelry. A bit OTT

  2. I usually like the way she dresses, but she’s too thin for this style of blouse particularly when paired with such clingy chiffon sarees which only accentuate her tiny frame more. I’d love to see her in a chanderi or silk saree, as I think they’d suit her figure more.

  3. I really don’t get why someone as smart as Farah Khan would wear two heavy pieces in such close proximity, as the neck and ears in pic 1. For that matter, I can’t understand why jewellers usually sell earrings and necklaces of the same design as a ‘set’ — when it seems obvious to me that a heavy bracelet would be a much better companion piece to a heavy necklace OR earrings.

    • Well, that’s what sells in India Iris esp. during weddings! If jewelers just sell so called wedding sets without one of the pieces then I am afraid they would just be lying there forever! No Indian wedding would be complete without ladies donning earrings, necklace,rings, bracelets in tow! No wonder they call it solah singaar :)

      • yep, another instance of what ‘sells’ dictating good taste as well! what i meant was, if the neckpiece is heavy, it just makes sense that the earrings be light and the hand ornaments heavy again. jewellers, for obvious reasons, continue to think more is more, but surely wearers should have better sense? but of course, here is jeweller IS the wearer!

      • agree with Shweta – its a very indian concept, heavy earrings and necklace are a must, especially for brides or when attending a wedding. I remember just wearing heavy earrings with a silk saree at a wedding and being looked at aghast for not wearing a necklace also! Afraid the western concept of wearing ‘discreet’ jewelery doesn’t wash in India! Personally I like the Indian way of donning the heavy jewels, it suits the style of dressing.
