    Gosh, it was such a bad look, even on the TV… and the hair color, less said better

    Her face looks really pretty in the last pic but that outfit is a complete eyesore. It reeks of unclassiness and desperation. A sari should either be wrapped properly or not worn at all in my opinion.

    1. Adara at | | Reply

      Yes, this is sheer desperation. I feel sorry for her.

      Completely agree (see my draping vent below).

        Who decides what’s proper? Ageist trolls!

        Madhuri did Dhak Dhak and Choli Ke Peeche and even then it was considered vulgar (people tried to ban the latter if I remember right).

        Just grow up.

        Also, her boobs are covered. Stop acting like its not.

    Her hair looks good…she faintly looks like JLo

    She was looking really bad……She has a beautiful face…she needs to dress according to her age…..Dis season I m not liking her look at all…

    How terribly tacky does she look, hard to believe its Madhuri.
    Whoever her stylist is for this season, she should be changed pronto – her saree drapes are getting worse by the day and at this rate she’ll win the title hands down in a Ms Vulgarity pageant. Three thumbs-down…wait a minute, make that like a 100.

    That half boob show is a downer..kills the outfit…love the color on her though…

    Is she wearing a wig?
    Tarun Tahiliani is getting Madhuri to channel his pet bollywood muse Shilpa Shetty, is he? This is all sort wrong…but it brings up the question how does one make a woman of a certain age sexy but not desperate…if sexy was what they were going for.
    On the positive, her face is ever-radiant.

    Good frickin lord! At this age being a wannabe is just trashy! If she had the right body type age aint a matter, but unfortunately she does not have it.

    She looked lovely on tv. Very very beautiful. No one in their right mind would criticize this look.

    No words. That blouse looks like it’s made from a carpet or velvet drapes. The hair looks like a rug. That last pic is super photo-shopped.

    Even separate from the lower drape, I find the upper drape annoying, too. Similar to strapless/noodle strap blouses, with one shouldered blouses (unless the shoulder is not on the same side of the drape, which would be odd in any case), it seems that the wearer feels some compulsive need to do the one-breast showoff. And quite frankly, I’ve never understood this need to show off one’s breasts in a saree – if you wanted cleavage, wear something that is not a saree, but I’m really not on board with moulding a saree into a different kind of sexiness – its sexiness lies in its elegance. And yes, sometimes one wants to show off more (nothing wrong with that), but there are other outfits with which to do it. With a saree, it comes off as tacky and quite frankly, a waste of a good (sometimes) piece of fabric. /Rant over.

      I don’t understand what gives anyone the right to say what is the “correct” way of wearing a sari? just look at ancient sculptures and paintings, and you’ll realise that this “one boob” phenomenon that everyone on HHC seems to rant on about has been long for a long time! there is no “right” way to carry a pallu or wrap a sari! However I must agree the actual sari and blouse she is wearing are quite tacky to say the least!

      1. Adara at | | Reply

        Well if we went that far, there was nothing like a pallu in fact. Only a tube and then a drape down. And some were even topless. The blouse in itself was a concept of the British-victorian concept of covering the breasts “appropriately”. Obviously its too late for us to go back to that era. :P I don’t mind strapless, one shoulder, boob show whatever but definitely one has to have the body type, the attitude and the confidence to carry off certain styles which seems the lacking point in this case.

    2. kasthuri at | | Reply

      +1 with whatever ak said. The only thing i can accept in the same of sexiness in a saree is a low waist drape like how Shilpa wears it. Anything else makes it tacky.

  13. dips at | | Reply

    Oh Madhuri! With that gorgeous face and amazing smile it’s hard not to forgive you…but you break my heart! That shade of red, a one shouldered blouse and a tacky drape….how many aspects of a look can one forgive??

    1. Tania at | | Reply

      This is unforgivable.

  14. Neerja at | | Reply

    whoever is styling her this season is doing a pretty bad job of it!
    she needs to get Tanvi Ghavri back and how!

    First of all this saree is for someone statuesque which madhuri is certainly not. Saree is nice though. I don’t like her fake hair. It makes her head look big which looks odd on her tiny shoulders.

  16. Rana at | | Reply

    Why is she doing this? She’s had a great career and now these classless moves on TV. I hope the money is great.

  17. Neharika at | | Reply

    This is just trashy. Why would she wear this? I don’t care about the age but this looks bad. I think vidya is better dressed than her. Atleast she doesn’t try to look half her age is Waist revealing outfits.

  18. KS at | | Reply

    why flaunt if you don’t have the right body type… she is becoming tackier day by day…

  19. Sarindar at | | Reply

    Not a good look on someone of her age. She needs to go for a classically elegant look rather than a tacky, ‘sexy’ one!

  20. MA at | | Reply

    She looks radiant! Apart from the way the sari is draped & the earrings, she looks absolutely gorgeous. The color, sari and styling are just fine. There’s a lot to like here.

    Sometimes there’s too much unnecessary criticism that goes on here (criticism for the sake of it).

  21. Slc at | | Reply

    The saree is really pretty and the color suits Madhuri as well. The blouse is terrible though and almost ruins the whole look. Neck up she looks gorgeous though.

  22. kasthuri at | | Reply

    This was a terrible look even on TV. The drape was really tacky. And she is just over-exposed in that show, i do not mean clothing wise. She is just praised and complimented every 5 minutes that its a total bore.

  23. Ranij at | | Reply

    Hair and makeup is stunning. Don’t like the outfit. She looking so pretty though neck up

    I really don’t understand why so many people are hating on this. Agreed it’s not the best ensemble but trashy and vulgar? I wouldn’t go that far. And boy do we live in an ageist society.

    1. Asha at | | Reply

      Nothing ageist about the comments. This would be a trashy ensemble on a woman of any age!!!

      1. fashionpolice at | | Reply

        I’m not sure you’ve read the comments. Many of them talk of dressing for her age etc. ‘Ageist trolls’ like someone said.

  25. cersei at | | Reply

    I don’t understand this outfit but she is oozing oomph here. Isn’t that partly what made her a super duper star? This is Jhalak Dikhla Jaa not Dinner with the Queen.

    People it seems are quite attached to ideas of how women of a certain age should dress. Between Madhuri, Sridevi and others, hopefully there will be a paradigm shift soon.

  26. Puneeta at | | Reply

    Hey! You commenters are giving me the wrong idea! I scrolled up to see Madhuri’s boob and there was none!! Dammit!!

    Oh, you mean she wasn’t draping the saree like you deemed appropriate? Ever seen a Raja Ravi Varma painting? *SLAP YOSELF*

    Madhuri was never the goody two shoes, who dressed up to please you aunties anyway! She was and will always be the dhak dhak girl, glamourous and sexy, so just deal with it. I don’t even think a bitchy mother-in-law could top the class act(NOT) that you have going here.

    PS: To all the 20 somethings who are being ageist (I am 27 myself and grew up watching Madhuri), to you I say “auntyji auntyji, get up and dance!” Or actually don’t, cause Madhuri is better than the lot of you in that as well!

      Ha, there comes another of my fan. Yes? My comments on this are right up there.

    Atleast she is not as desperate as Sonam (a full boob show on TV) and a winter jacket for summers…Madhuri is looking radiant …lovely smile… I hope she gets the right stylist!

    Funny how Sri Devi shows up in just as ‘vulgar’ clothes but everyone calls her a fashionista. Madhuri shows up like this and suddenly it’s OMG SO VULGAR?

    1. Steve at | | Reply

      When Sridevi wears a sari she wears it appropriately not as vulgar and obscene as this. Plus Madhuri does not have Sri’s taste in saris neither the height. Nobody rocks a sari as Sridevi.

    I think she looks lovely! The colour really suits her.
