    It would’ve looked fine on the ramp… at the Cannes red carpet though I’m not sure. Lovely ensemble though.

    the man’s attire is more appealing here!

      Agree!! Sabya is looking so dapper in this sherwani! Kanistha’s outfit is a lil out of place, but beautiful none the less.

    looks fab!!

    FABULOUS!!!! I can’t stop staring at Kanishtha…absolutely gorgeous!!

    PnP, I can understand why you feel that this ensemble is out of place on the red-carpet…it does look bridal meets designer royalty meets costume drama…but if the impractical JPG gown Sonam was wearing or the see-through gown on Mallika can fly on the red-carpet, I don’t see why this can’t :)

    1. Jenney at | | Reply

      I absolutely agree!

      Besides, Kanishtha looks divine!

    2. kasthuri at | | Reply

      I agree !! This is 100s times better than the wierd costume sonam was wearing.
      This looks classy !! And love Sabya’s look too !

    she looks breath taking!!!that dupatta with the sheer and little red is beautiful!!

    omg she looks like a mannequin!!!
    a gorgeous one BUT a mannequin regardless.

    1. Jaya at | | Reply

      Agreed! When I saw the pics I totally thought, that’s a pretty statue! It might just be these particular pics though.

    I’m loving the Dupatta and the Lehnga… and how beautiful would it look in ‘wedding colors’…. but again..?…what were they doing in Cannes ….???

    1. Sheikha at | | Reply

      My question too, what are they doing in Cannes?

  8. usha at | | Reply

    Gorgeousness!!! She looks like a classy bride…loved it!

    LOVE the lengha.. it’s so gorgeous. The blouse and chunni are not working for me.. but the lengha is so pretty!
    And I love Sabya’s sherwani!

    1. Anubha at | | Reply

      ditto. I wish the blouse were more itsy bitsy with black and red and gold zari/zardosi work and the dupatta having more gold and less red .
      Anyways kudos for Sabya.Donno what he is doing there but well deserved to be there .(How i wish Manish arora wd also be present along with one of his creation).

    i think she looks absolutely marvellous. what is so “out of place” about this look? who decides whats “in place” anyway. the idea is to give the red carpet its due regard and making an effort. even Fan bing bing wore a traditional outfit at the redcarpet, and all the ‘real’ fashion blogs always appreciate it.
    pnp you guys are serious nitpickers. sometimes its okay to swoon over someone even if theyre not stars/established ‘fashioniastas’

      Very well said!!

  11. Sej at | | Reply

    She doesn’t look very confident in that look – someone with confidence like Sonam (not a huge fan usually) could’ve pulled this out-of-place outfit off with ease.

    1. Anubha at | | Reply

      Nayanika Chatterjee wdve rocked this look.Tanishtha lacks the confidence and oomph needed .

  12. SS at | | Reply

    Odd look for the red carpet… and why does Sabya look like he is standing next to a statue?

    1. Anushka at | | Reply

      Haha my thoughts exactly..
      But yeah regarding what they are wearing, I love Sabya’s look.. very suave.. And I love her lehenga.. The blouse could’ve done with some work, and though it is not “conventional” red carpet attire, she’s looking gorgeous in it.. It’s good to see someone young showing up at an international event in traditional Indian wear. :)

    Kanishtha looks like an artpiece. love the whole outfit

    The actual top and lengha skirt are very red carpet appropriate, just the dupatta should have been worn differently, not so over the top like this.
    Otherwise I like the outfit.

    1. Dits at | | Reply

      Agree. Was thinking the same about the dupatta

    2. suchi at | | Reply

      i agree dupatta is not right

    the lanhga is really pretty .those red patches on chunni enhances the look…….i have little bit of problem with that blouse which is plain black….n comming to her face she looks nervous and nt comfortable……..like a statue…

  19. annie at | | Reply

    I love it!! wish she had not covered her head though

  20. Peachesandblush.com at | | Reply

    I want that lehenga for my weddinnngg ! Its gorgeous…but i cant wear black so :(
    But yeah, too ornate for red carpet

    1. Anubha at | | Reply

      You cd get the same in red combo.

  21. quirky at | | Reply

    LOVE it !! its regal, not OTT with shimmers, sober and Stunning at the same time….I would take this as a representative Indian fashion than one boob show ugly chiffon sarees ANY day !!

    As for sabya…SWOON !! :D

  22. Arati at | | Reply

    pretty… but it seems the photographers are not interested in clicking any pics…. too bad

    1. Froggie at | | Reply

      Thats because those cameramen are behind them. Noone wants to see the backsides :)

  23. pdabre at | | Reply

    I LOVED this appearance the first time I saw it. But I can understand why everyone would not like it. It has to be viewed in a certain way while looking at it. For me, I love it because I see it as a designer who is showcasing his creation … and so the mannequin look works for me :) And of course the lehenga is a work of art.

  24. crab at | | Reply

    She should have skipped the bangles and tika, and worn the pallu to one side instead of drawing it over the hair. Nevertheless, i love the dress. Just not suitable for red carpet.

  25. FancyNancy at | | Reply

    It’s a lovely lehnga….I think it would have been more red-carpet-appropriate if the dupatta was not draped over the head.

  26. chitown-fashionista at | | Reply

    I love the outfit – the lehenga and the dupatta are beautiful and have a beautiful contrast, just wish the dupatta was draped a little differently and not in such an editorial way.

  27. SMV at | | Reply

    She would have looked much better and red carpet -appropriate if she would have worn the chunni differently…this look is to village bride-ish for red carpet that too at Cannes.

  28. Nidhi at | | Reply

    In a true way representing India…i think dis is what the west is more interested in…for us as Indian we feel its very bridal and not red carpet appropriate …but as someone rightly pointed its way better than sonam n mallika…

  29. priya at | | Reply

    sabya looks soo good..finally someone who is representing Indian fashion the way it should be..no phoren designers..nobody jus basic simple indian classic attire and i love the lehenga…she looks fab..jus wish she hadnt covered her head!!

    1. Anubha at | | Reply

      how i wish Sonam had worn a Sabya sari or even an anamika khanna .

      1. priya at | | Reply

        aah now that u tell me anubha… i feel the same…though masabas saree is gr8…i quite didnt feel the “blouse” the front part plus the make up was too OTT

        1. Anubha at | | Reply

          Hey Priya .. That masaba saree was such a dissapointment. Read my comments for Sonam’s saree looks.

  30. Reshma at | | Reply

    Absolutely love it! It’s different yet looks elegant enough for the red carpet. The model is so gorgeous, much better looking than hyped up ash rai or sonam

  31. farzana at | | Reply

    the designer looks flawless….the lady looks dead….no matter what you wear…you should be confident…it the opposite for her…..she could have skipped the mang tika…..she would have looked better with loose curls……

  32. Deepa at | | Reply

    is she this year’s Miss India? She looks so gorgeous.

  33. AM at | | Reply

    Sabya looks terrific. Best dressed man at Cannes. Period.

    Wish other Indian men would follow suit and not leave it to the women to showcase our clothing :-)

  34. shyba at | | Reply

    Class Apart…….a tribute to our culture,fabric etc etc….

  35. Rounak at | | Reply

    Totally AM! Never seen Sabya look so good! Love it, he steals the show all the way! :D

  36. Ramya at | | Reply

    Wow! What a lovely, lovely lehenga. Beautiful. But then, its more bridal wear, so I’m not sure how appropriate it is for Cannes.

    But the man, he looks dapper!

  37. Sabah Zaman at | | Reply

    WoW! Love the skirt and the dupatta too! But,yes I agree this would have looked nice on the runway..looks out of place on the red carpet.. I heart Sabya’s outfits…he is the most talented and best designer right now in india according to me…Love the way he plays with textures and colors… :D

  38. diptiN at | | Reply

    love everything about her look, except the jewelry especially what she has on her head. The outfit is soooo beautiful that the rest should have been kept to a minimum. Sabyasachi look soooo handsome, I loove his outfit, especially the shawl, and the churidaar they fit him so perfectly. Oh My God, fabulous.

  39. Sania at | | Reply

    I thought the model looks divine. The dress by itself is beautiful. The colours are so rich and elegant. love it.

  40. Sharin at | | Reply

    I love the cropped top and lengha combo!!!!!!!

  41. Sabrina at | | Reply

    this is just too weird on the red carpet…and why are people saying sabya is the best dressed man? he’s clearly average. i like his shoes.
    (i must say its also an upgrade from regular sabya clothes which remind me of fabindia bedsheets and curtains)
    but the whole look, stagey and weirddd.

  42. ashi at | | Reply

    wow, she looks divine! and mr. mukherjee looks very handsome. as someone who lives in the west i can assure you, such attire on the red carpet is far more appealing than the usual haute couture [not that i don’t like them any less!] we see.

    india should be very very very proud right now.

    p.s i think kanishta stood in for rani mukherjee at the last minute for some reason?

  43. Sunanda at | | Reply

    Loved ’em both!

  44. Sharmistha at | | Reply

    SHE LOOKS LIKE A PRINCESS! Love, love, love, love, love. Sabyasachi looks great too!

  45. Sreya at | | Reply

    Guys you should cover another kolkata denizen Paoli Dam on the cannes red carpet. She looked fab. Lets face it not everybody can afford JPG, Ellie Saab or even a sabyasachi. She did a traditional dhakai sharee with real elegance.

    1. FashionVictim at | | Reply

      Yes, I saw her pictures too – she looked absolutely divine on the red carpet as well as the Eat and Dance India party.

  46. KrypticKrusader at | | Reply

    The lehenga is pretty, the look a regular staple from sabya’s bridal couture wear since the past few seasons… what’s not working at all is the whole drape of d dupatta..wearing a lehenga on d red carpet does highlight d whole “exotic east” concept well but draping d dupatta on d head wid all that jewellery makes d look very costumey almost like a Miss UNiverse national costume round…however I can probably understand why d designer wud go wid tht look…red carpets r meant to b all abt selling ure merchandise and sabya picked this out of his collection probably bcoz this look is what he’s seeking to sell to his international audience. Its gimmicky to say d least!

    M glad to c dat someone is Proudly wearn India next to her skin in a true Signature Indian way and it rocks. Thats wt India is royal, elegant and extravagant

  48. dee at | | Reply

    Its so nice to know that Sabyasachi actually creates such beautiful ensemble as well. I find it very difficult to think past Vidya balan and her sarees whenever Sabyasachi is mentioned.

  49. dn at | | Reply

    Beautiful, the artist and his art piece!! She looks gorgeous, I think if she was walking by herself she would be better off without the dupatta over her head. But this is his showcase, so she looks perfect.

    How awesome does he look?! Sabya rocks!!
