Poles Apart

64

One look at Kajol and you couldn’t help but flashback to cousin sister Rani’s appearance from the MAMI opening night. Both wore floral Manish Malhotra saris with red blouses and chand bali earrings. The similarity ends RIGHT there though because as beautiful Rani looked in hers, Kajol looked anything but. Hated the velvet blouse and the maroon underskirt under the sari.

  1. Stop this biased opinions. You are just being partial to Rani. Kajol looks good. Its just the timings of both the pics that is making the diff.
    Rani is standing all posed and Kajol’s pic has been taken naturally when she was walking.

    Lets see how Rani looks 5 years from now after having a child.

    Then you can put a comparison pic.

    • It’s not about the pose, it’s about the tacky blouse n the red underskirt…come on!
      Good on choice on saree tho considering how blind Kajol usualli is..
      She looks good otherwise…
      Rani looks great but makeup wasnt flash friendly (ie too much)

    • Maddy, couldnt figure out the link between the comparison between the ladies and Kajol being a mom? Do you think motherhood makes women less beautiful or takes away from them in some way? Cases in point where women are even more gorgeous after becoming moms – Malaika and Twinkle.

      • I did not say “motherhood makes women less beautiful” If you did not understand simple english please go back and read what I wrote.

        When somebody is doing a comparison pic you do it with similar poses. In my opinion this was just a biased pic to show Kajol in bad light.

      • im sorry to say i didnt like the comparison on this site. we are only talking of fashion and style isnt it? then why compare between cousins. i like both of them but its sad to differentiate on the basis of clothes. lets just talk wht this site is intended to be. The title shud have been Ditto!

          • Just to clarify, this post was only about the fashion and how two people are wearing something very similar and yet end up looking poles apart. Just that and nothing more. And as for comparisons, we do face-offs all the time. :)

          • Face Offs are fine. But Puting Poles Apart on the title is not appropriate. Ditto as a title as someone mentioned below or some other title was fine.
            Here you are putting your preconceived opinions on the readers.
            And they are not looking Poles Apart as you can read from the comments section. Some people are liking Rani’s and some are liking Kajol’s. So how is it Poles Apart ??

    • Oh please Kajol was no better even without a child and it is not just the pose just look at the tacky clutch and the totally gauche manner in which she holds her pallu. No class.

  2. I totally agree.. Rani looked so very B’ful… Kajol looks Ok from far..can we get some close ups too? I liked Kajol’s saree minus the velvet n the skirt.

  3. Eeks…why would any one want to wear a red underskirt under a cream color saree. I dint texpect this from Kajol. Is it now fashion to wear a contrastunderskirt for a saree. Rani looks so elegant and beautiful and I hate the way Kajol has spoiled the look of such a beautiful saree.

  4. All I can say is, she does not have the style gene !

    Having said that, Kajol looks much better tan many of her appearances in this forum. There is no comparison to Rani though !

  5. Kajol is squarely in the vidya balan category as far as her dress sense is concerned. But she is so cheery and confident through it all that one indulges her.
    cant stop laughing at that blouse though. what IS that? Net sleeves? with a velvet bodice? really?

  6. Kajol’s choice of underskirt is unbelievable… i mean, why would anyone wear a maroon underskirt under a biege sari? and that blouse! ewww..

  7. Kajol & Aish –
    Velvet Blouse – check
    Transaprent 3/4th sleeves – check
    Metallic Underskirt – check

    Though both of them look good..this is not my personal pref

  8. No way! Kajol looks amazing..rani looks good too, but in a more generic plastic way, whereas kajol looks authentic, old school glamour!!!

  9. of late rani has this pretty sublime and *at peace with the world* expression that really makes her look calm and beautiful. i wonder what it is.

  10. Rani looks lovely-Kajol looks awful-what made her wear that underskirt in that colour???? With the right blouse and underskirt this saree would have looked gorgeous

  11. Agreed that Rani does win this round, but Kajol is looking quite good when compared to the kind of outfits she had on while featured on this blog previously…she’s a charmer nonetheless!

  12. even though the maroon underskirt might be a no-no…i actually think kajol looks better…i think it brings out a different shade in the sari so maybe it was intentional?
    also, rani has wayyy too much make up on

    • I had the same feeling – maybe the underskirt is silk, and supposed to add layers to the look, as it is the same colour as the blouse. Otherwise nobody would do this. I like Kajol’s look as well, not too dolled up. She looks like her fierce self. Hate the blouse though.

      Rani looks beautiful too. I would lean towards Ditto as well, and not poles apart.

      • no no guys…. the different colour underskirt is a fashion thing now …
        i’ve seen pink sarees with metallic purple underskirt … rest assured i couldnt finish my dinner after feasting my eyes on THAT!

  13. I actually think Kajol makes it work, despite the red underskirt….Its all about the personality
    Ooohhh…and Love both the Beige/Cream Sarees :)

  14. Neither. With Rani, I guess I am the only one who doesn’t like the sari. It looks like white metal foil.The blouse is horrible. Overall her appearance is very nautch girlish here.
    Kajol is more premiere ready than usual. Though her sari is marginally better but the blouse is a huge put off. I don’t mind the
    underskirt and the drape and attitude are much better. If it has to be, it’s Kajol for me.
    ps: let’s please return to the times of non flimsy, non blingy saris.

  15. Poles apart is a wrong caption! Ditto would have been better. I think kajol looks gorgeous! and oh..they have the same fiery personalities…only difference kajol tries to be herself while rani acts all sweet

    • Exactly my point. Poles Apart was a wrong caption. They are not looking poles apart. As everybody can read the comments some are liking Rani’s and some are liking Kajol’s. So both are looking nice in diff ways.

  16. why is always such a commotion when rani and kajol are compared? neither are fashion friendly. both are usually crappy when it comes to style. but both are fine actresses. in this round rani looks better. that’s all there is to it!

  17. Rani looks SO much better! I think even “Poles apart” is an understatement.
    To me, personally, Rani is always very elegant and pretty. She has this really charming sweetness about her which makes her fashion foibles seem not too bad and her good fashion moments seem awesome.
    Kajol on the other hand, just seems like she’s either trying too hard or not at all; this is reflected in her fashion sensibility too.
    So yea…Team Rani. lol

    • While both are fine actresses, Rani is a overall more versatile. She is a better dancer, easier on the eyes and with relatively (a lot of stress on the relativity) better sense of style. Plus she has a more affable personality, or at least it comes off that way in the interviews. As far as this particular post is concerned, I think one has to be blind not to agree that with such similar clothes and get up one can manage to look so different.

  18. kajol has such a tomboy thing going about her… im surprised she picked this saree to wear…!!! WOW.
    Rani does look better here… but then again we have to give marks fr trying… and kajol sure did.

  19. the personality Kajol posses, she doesn’t need to try to look good! coz when we talk abt kajol or look at her, we rarely see wat she is wearing, we see her. so, i’m not gonna give any credit to her for tryin, all im gonna say is she is the one who showed that to look good, a person doesn need to wear fancy cloths!
