Wearing One’s Own


I’ve seen some of her lehengas and they are pretty nice but if you ask me, I’ll take Manish Malhotra’s filmy/blingy saris over Maheka’s latest sari collection any day. I just can’t bring myself to like this net material that is so stiff it takes away all the elegance that should come with wearing a sari. The pallu and the bad folds just make it worse.

  1. The sari is worn really badly. Makeup is just plain weird and the color of the sari does nothing for her. Just goes to show what bad fashion can do to a beautiful woman.

  2. Actually apart from the design and color, I do like the stiffness of a net saari. I’m in the process of making a net lehenga myself

  3. i didn’t know that willy wonka has started churning out sarees? haha..it is a truly horrendous saree both because of the netting but also the border looks like it’s made of candy like smarties or gems or something…ok, now i have a sudden craving for chocolate!

  4. My mother always showed her disdain for net saris by calling them “glorified machar daani’s”.. i never seconded that opinion till I saw this..

    For those not fluent in hindi, machar daani = mosquito net

  5. OMG I went through a stage a few years ago..when Net saris were very big..and did BELIEVE that a net sari couldnt go wrong..but seen enough examples on this website..whats with the Indian shops selling net which blows up into an elephant dress..The ones I own fall very well and dont enlarge this way.

  6. @apsara77, Ditto! Now I got a choco craving too after reading your comment:( lol
    I agree, net saris just don’t work for me, plus the only net stuff I’ve ever liked was what Ash had worn in Hum Dil.
