Throwing Us A Curveball

104

There have been moments I have wondered what Kareena would look like in a Kanjeevaram sari (this isn’t one though) and wondered if that day would ever come. Ok, so that day hasn’t come but it still was a real surprise shock to see Ms. Kapoor don a sari that wasn’t a Manish Malhotra. While accompanying Aamir Khan in Madhya Pradesh for the promotion of 3 Idiots, the actors visited local weavers and to highlight their low wages called in a press conference to which Kareena wore a black Chanderi sari with gold pallu.

Am sure for her next event, she will revert right back to Mr. Malhotra but until then I am just gonna stare at this miracle! :P

  1. when i saw the second pic (just the top part) i was like, “wow!”, lovely saree…
    then i saw the full picture and went “yikes!!”
    that pallu ruins the BEATUTIFUL saree… and the thing with these sarees are the fact that its translucent and lose pallu doesnt always working… sorry Kareena. I really wanted to like it.

  2. Ahhh so simple, so pretty! I love this stuff :) I’m beginning to REALLY destest the completely made up, airbrushed, blingy, sparkly, perfect curl look that Bollywood actresses come to again and again. I love how real her skin looks and how natural her makeup is. The print is a bit big for her frame, but still <3

  3. That’s such a beautiful saree….I LOVE the pallu! It’s stunning! This is a great effort by Aamir….I really hope more and more young celebrities wear desi clothes from time to time to big events…and advertise what they are wearing.

  6. Saree is lovely… However I must say that when wearing saree at least 1 bangle or a bracelet is necessary

    Her hands are looking ’empty’

      • P & P,
        I know you are on a vacation, but I desperately need your help. I am going to meet a guy’s mother for the alliance and my guy has picked a Kanjeevaram in the navy blue color and the pallu is the same as that of kareena :) The saree is really pretty, but what Jewelry should I wear with this saree? Should I wear gold or pearl. Bangle, choker, chain, a strand of pearl what? Please please please help!!

        Thanks a ton in advance.

  7. I love the fit and cut of the blouse. So simple, elegant and understated. I think the navy color of the sari adds a stateliness and gravitas to her appearance that is very event-appropriate. I would question her sincerity if she showed up in the bells and whistles that Bollywood divas and wannabes usually do. This is such a welcome change that the visible navel and loud fish scales are forgivable.

  8. Wow!!! this is a treat to my eyes. I like Kareena Kapoor and I like ethnic Indian woven saris, so this is refreshing to see Kareena in it. This sari brought out the natural complexion of Kareena which is make up free. This sari is very rich in its zari border. Yummy…..

    • I really appreciate Amir Khan for his effort to help Indian handloom weavers and promote the fabrics. Keep it up Kareena for supporting the cause and wearing the sari woven by them. If more celebrities come forward and promote our national heritage which is getting extinct, we can get back the previous glory of our precious handloom industry.

  9. She looks so well put together and dignified – I’ve been saying it for aeons and will say it again; more traditional saris – they don’t even have to be the heavy kanjeevaram variety – would make so many of our Bollywood stars shine and look sophisticated and elegant in a way the more modern slinky stuff can’t.First Vidya in her Sabya sarees and now Kareena in this one – it’s a good period for fashion in tinsel town. :)

  10. BEAUTIFULLLLL. i have many chanderi sarees and perhaps wudnt have chosen one with this pallu but the overall effect is so classy and refreshing…much much better that the boring sameness that goes under the garb of designer wear…keep it on kareena.

  11. Yay for handloom sarees!!! Love them, I feel I and most Indian women look best in them. Also like to collect sarees from different parts of the country.
    Such a refreshing change to see Kareena like this.
    A big Yay for Aamir and his support of Chanderi handloom!

  12. Well i liked this saree a lot ,simple and elegance together and inspite of its transparency(which most of indian sarees have) and kareena without any makeup /jewellary i loved it on her.

    Someone sais ‘KK’ ,Black +gold on day is wrong and black is night color.
    Well i disagree…its personal choice.
    Indian fashion is all about colors and glitters…day or night.
    Outside india,gold shine+black is night color.

    Black is all time,any time color

  13. Wonderful, great, amazing etc etc to see Kareena like this-au natural, a look that we can identify with. Love the saree, incl the heavy pallu. She has gained weight on her face and looks better with it.

  14. This tells that a simple saree can also make someone look so elegant and pretty.One doesn’t have to spend big bucks or get designer wear to get this look.

  15. Actually Kareen did dorn a bottle green kanjivaram in the final scenes of Tashan where Akshay and her are setting up the happy ending and I think she looked pretty good in it too with her hair pulled back in a bun with flowers to go as well.

  16. Oh I just simply love this ., because I love traditional Indian textiles and handlooms .. and I saw somewhere on TV ..Aamir and Kareena visited Chanderi district in MP for their 3 idiots promotion and they went to a weavers house .. Aamir bought this sari from the weaver and ifted it to Kareena ..

    The sari is super awesome and chanderi is one of my favoruite fabrics .. Kareena looks lovely !!

  19. It’s nice to see her in something less blingy, but in this sari she looks very… ordinairy and a bit too simple. Not the same wow factor. She looks more like a star when she wears the “ugly blingy MM sari’s” ..in the words of everyone on Highheel lol.

  20. FINALLY – somebody wears ethnic and promotes the local artists and weavers….there are some “high end designers” who support local weavers etc like ritu kumar and abu jani and meera and muzaffar ali but somehow their clothes are not reachable by us commoners….so i would love it if these guys as part of their efforts also make sure these amazing sarees and clothes are accessible to more people – how about the organzing special exhibitions of sarees by these local weavers and highlighting the cause! there will surely be many takers!

  21. She looks gorgeous and hence apart from Ash she is only on who garners so many comments on this blog. Sari is the best garment for an Indian woman.This is how a sari is supposed to be draped.Amisha and Priyanka please take notes.

  23. OMG!!! i was wondering what P’n’P by’aamir gifting kareena a chanderi saree . i did not know this would be the result . i am speechless …. and P’N’P stop being so critical about pallu and stuff, i see my mom wear such simple cotton sarees all the time and they look so beautiful and elegant something that money can never buy. kareena here looks good and i am touched by aamir’s gesture. kareena looks fab here and yes she wore a kanjeevaram saree in tashan and had her hair pulled back and she had some flowers she looked so beautiful she should wear such stuff more often . i am bored of seeing rekha do that for a change rekha should wear MM :P and kareena should start wearing cotton and kanjeevaram :).
    P S is it just me or is something wrong with kareena’s eye make-up also i noticed this post has received one of the highest number of responses when i saw it it was 96 wow!!! that explains the popularity of indian sarees …yay !

  24. I see so many comments about the design of this saree. It has been done by the local weavers guys. Give them the benefit of doubt and I think it was really good of Kareena to wear it to a press conference. It gives these local weavers the publicity which they need. I mean these guys are not even trained and they weave something so beautiful.
    As far as Kareena’ saree draping skills are concerned, does she really need to prove her style quotient???
