    How long is she supposed to wear them? I wish she had worn a traditional outfit, a simple churidaar would’ve done the trick.

      agree totally

        Yeah, I totally don’t understand why one must force match traditional wedding bangles with western wear.

          come on girls give her a break… I mean just look at her smile… she looks so happy…

          she looks like a newly-wed girl who never wears western clothes but is wearing this because her dear hubby wanted her to wear it while on their honeymoon and is happily posing for pics taken by her dear hubby…

          she is in her own world now…

            hahah yes she is in her own world now. She looks so CUTE though.. and even though she is dressed in an abominably childish outfit, I must say… she pulls it off better than Katrina Kaif. It’s def a wtheyy… but she looks so gosh darn cute. N how gorgeous is her face??!! Looks like she barely has any makeup on and her features are just stunning.

      Brace yourself, KK. Choodas are supposed to be worn for a 40 day- to a year long period. Just hope she chooses the prior!

    Ye Kya ho raha hai? And where is that pink/piping lover? I think only he can salvage this look …. (By committing a bigger fashion faux pa than this and making this look better in comparison)

          @ koel: LOL between the R.I.D.I.C.U.L.O.U.S. hair-do and your comments I am totally cracking up!!!

          And aww…I actually think they look adorable together (in a VERY un-stylish way)

          1. sri at |

            i think the pink piping lover has rubbed off some of his fashion sense to her! lol

    is that a baby clip in her hair? Choodas & baby clip ???? uhhh

    1. KS at | | Reply

      yeah!chuda and baby clip..pretty oxymoronish! :D

      But i must say she looks good without makeup(almost) too!

  8. NFashionB at | | Reply

    I dont think she came out for a event or pics.Looks like dressed up in hurry for picking smthing from a shop..

  9. Aishwarya at | | Reply

    That is just horrendous! I don’t understand why women wear western outfits with chudas!! They look so moronic. Why can’t they stick to traditional wear if they MUST wear chudas? Or take the goddamn chudas off if you’re going western. Combining chudas with western is disgusting. Not to mention Isha Koppikar looks worse than a pre-schooler.

    1. Stuti at | | Reply

      Sorry but I do think its not appropriate to use the words goddmann with the chuda. It has religious and emotional sentiments for punjabis and you better respect that. A lot of girls (including me) have worn chudas with western and be able to carry it well so refrain from using such words. And before making a comment, know the history behind the chuda – I actually appreciate the fact that Isha is respecting the tradtions of your in-laws and following it so well – the way she is dressed up is a separate matter.

      1. neetu singh at | | Reply

        i too find Aishwarya’s post offensive.. a lot of girls working in offices wear western official wear with chudas..its how u blend the whole look..

        1. sri at | | Reply

          the US is adopting the bangles now..though they may not be the same indians wear..but they are made of gold and silver. they are pairing it up with weatern wear..bangles and big bracelets

          1. Enne at |

            Neetu & Stuti,

            you go girls!!!

    2. charan at | | Reply

      I dont think Aishwarya has anything against Chudas… its just it looks ridiculous with western clothing (not matter how many ppl think they carried it well **roll eyes**)
      One has to understand that this a “fashion blog” and all view are on that perspective.

      1. Sharin at | | Reply

        That’s like saying a Kirpan looks ridiculous with western clothing, or a Hijab looks ridiculous with western clothing, or even saying that Henna/Mehndi looks ridiculous with western clothing. I don’t think it looks ridiculous with western clothing at all. I see it all the time in England, Canada and the US and I’ve printed lots of honeymoon pics where I’ve seen women rock it out in Cancun and Hawaii as well. It is a “fashion” blog but certain things are out of the realm of fashion and shouldn’t be commented on.

          Then why are we missing Sindhoor and bindis in this picture, isnt that like the the mark of every married women in terms of tradition?? We dont wear it when i pull out a denim and shirt because it doesnt go well.
          I am sure the opinion of very few is not going to stop women from wearing chudas… its just an opinion.

    I think choodas can be worn with western outfits and henna as well, dont make it so outright criminal to combine Indian with western. Thats just plain ridiculous!

    1. B at | | Reply

      Well Anon, mixing ethnic and western if done tastefully looks good.. but this choodas with jeans looks hideous… Would you say, wear blue jeans , a yellow top and accesorise with yellow traditional bangles ??…

    2. Rock~n~Rose at | | Reply

      @Anon… By and large chooda and western outfits dont gel.. it would be the equivalent of wearing western boots over a chudidaar (in my books at least)

  13. GG at | | Reply

    Was this pic taken when she just rolled out of bed?? even then it is inexcusable.Its a statement ” hey I got married ! what do I have to dress for anymore.”

  14. parveen at | | Reply

    what’s wrong with going easy some times? don’t u agree that dressing up and looking all dolled up is becoming the norm and is actually so fake? what happened to simplicity? an indian woman has to wear chudas for a period of time.. and if she is happy mix matching ethhic rituals with western attires.. whats your problem folks?

    1. Kiwi at | | Reply

      Completely, copletely agree-as u can see, this is a no make up look… either she is wearing this before getting to the ‘event outfit’ or is just a very casual appearance as her shoes suggest. If one is required to wear a chooda for at least 40 days, one cannot just stop wearing Western outfits!! I find some of these comments very silly. Sure her Denim waistcoat is very silly, but this picture should not have been posted

    2. Shivani at | | Reply

      I think most of us have a problem with her clothes, not the chuda. Like what the heck – that’s the worst of late 80’s/early 90’s fashion. Who wears that sort of clothes anymore? unless she was trying to bring back the worst of 80’s.

    3. S at | | Reply

      I understand she may have to wear chuddas for a certain period of time and doesn’t want to wear Indian stuff all through. However, I can’t overlook the belt, the vest and that baby clip. I am also not in favor of the dolled up look but there’s always a right way to go casual.

    4. I'm a male at | | Reply

      Aye sir I could’nt agree more. That said the outfit was plain hilarious. But I agree with ur sentiment.

    5. Shivani at | | Reply

      Our problem is that it’s an eyesore!

    6. Stuti at | | Reply

      I agree – I mean dressing up all the time probably can get to anyone and there is no harm in expermenting – you win some you loose some

    7. kish at | | Reply

      there’s nothing wrong with going simple. but if you know you’re going to an event and you’re going to be photographed, don’t wear ill fitting jeans, a vest that looks like a five year old designed and stitched it, trainers that your grand mom probably wears with her sari to jog, and hair that’s been done by your 5 year old niece.

    8. SS at | | Reply

      no problems with simplicity……jeans with a white shirt and hair pulled up ( WITHOUT the pink clip) and choodas…. not a single person would have uttered a word….coz thats simplicity….now this right here…THIS is plain horror!!

  15. pdaervo at | | Reply

    it’s not about “dressing down” because it’s possible to mix bangles with western clothes ,…BUT THIS
    It’s like 80’s in the direction fashion is not going in

    1. pdaervo at | | Reply

      p.s. she doesn’t even need makeup, she’s gorgeous- it’s the rest of it I’m scared of

  16. Shivani at | | Reply

    can I just cringe at the sneakers? LAWL.

    1. Mayuri at | | Reply

      I was wondering why no one’s noticed the sneaker’s so far!;-D

    I can never give Isha a Wthey. I like the way how her toothy preschooler (naughty) grin in these pics compliments your comment.:D

  18. Jazz at | | Reply

    Omg I understand the chooda thing, but If you MUST wear them, atleast stick to wearing chooridar kurta or something. This looks ridiculous

  19. megha at | | Reply

    while i agree that the outfit is terrible (didn’t denim on denim get banned like in the early 90s…hehe)…i don’t think she should be completely faulted for wearing her choodas with what she’s wearing
    i didn’t take off my wedding bangles for the first few days and i couldn’t quite wear indian clothes every where i went (including my honeymoon)
    i appreciate her sticking with tradition and sentiment

  20. Shriya at | | Reply

    aww. she looks sweet. the worst thing on her is the denim waistcoat. it’s vile.

  21. AnotherKiranInNYC at | | Reply


    I think the assualt on my senses would have been less severe if she wore the exact same stuff… just atleast in a dark wash.

    But really, this chuda thing and little girl clip and badly fitting jacket and sneakers thing is too preschool. where was she going? To the grocery store?

  22. preetidutta at | | Reply

    i think everythng else is ok ..just that clip looks kinda odd …

  23. TJ at | | Reply

    ok, you can add this right next to that “clown” lady. I can’t get her out of my head, that clown has given me a “Memory burn” of the wrong kind.

  24. charan at | | Reply

    I personally want to appreciate ppl wearing choodas to stick to tradition but it looks unbearably tacky and ugly when worn with western clothes.

  25. kanika at | | Reply

    I have to say as a Punjabi that I agree that the choodas must be worn… However I also agree that they look ridiculous with Western wear.

    It is not different from a south indian or UP woman wearing ‘Bindi’ and mangasutra and – I know many Punjabis who would not have an problem ridiculing them for wearing those with western wear.

    So my verdict is it is ridiculous to wear such bangles on jeans.

  26. kanika at | | Reply

    From a fashion point of view of course.

    Wow I’m so mad at everyone saying that chudas look tacky with western clothes?! I mean.. I just don’t get it. I think her outfit in general is tacky, yes, but the chudas have nothing to do with it. I’m glad she’s rocking em out. Go Isha!

    1. anita at | | Reply

      Sharin, the fact remains that this particular set of wedding choodas are too much and the color combo doesn’t lend itself well to wearing with western clothes. I will change my mind when I see someone wearing these specific choodas well with westerns..

      Another thing is noone’s opposed to Isha’s religious or other sentiments. she could just wear patiala salwars until the time period is up and she can take the choodas off right? That woudl be really traditional. I don’t think traditionally, punjabi women wear jeans and sneakers post-wedding? You can’t argue with an opinion!!

  31. kanika at | | Reply

    Sharin, so if Aishwarya wears Jeans with bindi and mangalsutra – that is not tacky ? Is it okay to do that ? Just curious

    I mean she’s soo cute..who cares about the clothes? Oh okie, she should’ve worn something traditional lol, she’s so pretty even sans make up though, natural beauty.

  34. SK at | | Reply

    i have nothing against wearing chuda with western outfits… infact it looks very fashionable if done well.
    we wudnt have noticed the chuda had her entire outfit been better… much better… Much MUCH better…
    i get that she’s tryin to do the “girl next door” type of a look… but isha isha isha … the girl next doot has progressed way beyond the denims.
    and those hair – thats what i do with my hair right before i start clearning the house!
