    That said Neha still wins.
    but small win on Vidya’s part too …baby steps :) (And she does look lovely, Neha just looks AmAAzing)

    Awesome!!! Vidya looks younger and so amazing. Just a different style of blouse can make so much difference. Loove it.

    I like Neha’s hairdo better, I think it goes well with the round neck. That said, the draping is so much neater on Vidya’s part. Loving Vidya’s accessories too, and kudos for a different blouse from what we usually see her in!

    Such a Refreshing change for Vidya Balan.. a differently styled blouse, a light-toned sari and nice silver jewellery.. LIKE!
    Neha’s blouse looks very ill fitted.. rest Nice!

    Wow…just with a change of blouse-style, Vidya has managed lighten up and look like a whole new person. I used to hate those 3/4th sleeve ones. She looks luscious. De-crooking that arm will be the next level.
    Neha, on the other hand has an unerring eye for all things fashion…though if we are comparing these two gorgeous women as though they were prize-fighters, then the round really must go to La Balan.

    This side-by-side comparison shows why so many ppl have a problem with VB. Similar saree, similar colour, but how polished does Neha look! Give the same to VB and what you get is a shabby, fly-away hair mess. All the time. (This look is better, but only marginally so)

      +100. You said it. Neha makes it look SO good. Similar sari and what a world of difference. Shabbiness is part of all VB’s looks much like her arm crook. lol.

        In case it’s not clear, some of us will dislike VB regardless of what she does. That’s the way we roll.

          In the same way, we fan girls will always be hooting joyfully for all her unkempt looks with sloppy draping, terrible hair, cheap accessories. Because she is an extension of us. And that’s how deep we roll along with Adele.

    how lovely does vidya look!! a lil tweak (in this case blouse) and you have a winner!!

    Vidya is wearing a short-sleeved blouse! Hallelujah!

    Neha looks amazing but she should have skipped the earrings. Vidya does look good but the sloppy drape could have been avoided.

    Shorter sleeves actually suit Vidya much better. I hope she sticks to them but one never knows. I don’t know why Vidya doesn’t just hire someone to come over to do her sari drape for her. It’s quite common to do that.

    Yaaay for the shorter sleeves on Vidya Balan.
    But Ms.Balan, why you no drape the pallu neatly? Please do it for us!

    Full marks for a change to the blouse. She looks lovely.
    Ms.Neha almost always looks good. So am going to only give credit to VB on this post :))

    I like both of them here. Vidya Balan looks so refreshed and glowy. Am glad she is discovering sarees other than Kanjeevaram… and the blouse is different – thats already a win. That being said, Neha looks amazing. I do wish she chose the earrings or the necklace, but she still makes it work.

    What a small change can do for vidya!! She looks absolutely gorgeous…oh, that smile!!
    Neha… me thinks she needs to give up those earrings…that is one too many accesories. otherwise..love her pulled back hair, neck piece and bracelet…gorgeous ladies!

    neha is neha, looks amazing in a saree as usual. Vidyas looking way better than usual but its a bit unfair to compare her with the glamourous Amazonian neha, vidya almost always manages to look a little unpolished. Those saying neha’s blouse is ill fitting should note anavila make their blouses like this on purpose, kind of like loose tunics. Check out their runway shows.

    I will give an unbiased opinion as I am not a fan of both Neha and Vidya. I see in the tagging that Neha has a stylist and Vidya doesn’t have a stylist. But both are at same level in dressing in these pics.

    I was present at this event which was held in Bangalore last Saturday where Vidya Balan was wearing this sari and trust me she was looking FAB!! her makeup, her minimal jewellery, her hair, her blouse was all so well blended that she looked so pretty. It was an afternoon event and Vidya was looking so fresh!!

    Never thought I’d have to say this, but I actually prefer Vidya’s look. While I usually like Neha’s style,am getting bored of these boxy silhouettes she prefers these days. Where’s the change that defines fashion icons?
