    I love it! I always love her sensibility. So, this one is a winner for me.

    Such a Earthy look- perfect for a glowing mother to be. There’s really not a more perfect look for a pregnant woman than the bohemian/Earthy look. Remember Angelina at Cannes?

    I’m going to be a total hippie when I’m pregnant, just watch.

    She’s pregnant? Wow!! Why am i always the last to know stuff like this? She looks gorgeous. I hope it’s a girl. I can’t imagine her with a boy!

    I wish her all d best but keeping in mind dat dis is a fashion blog, P & P… Y oh Y do you feature this lady?? She has no fashion sense n I am sure she doesn’t want to be known for any fashion sense. I know I am sounding rude 2 some.. but C’on.. look @ d footwear!!! Fugly. If dis is called some kinda earthy look or watev u call it.. den i should be giving an award to my maid everyday. she wears the same kinda clothes as this woman but only with a better choice of chappals (?).
    I am pretty sure U’ll not approve my comments ;)

      Because fashion is not always about being all dressed up. Fashion also includes whether you can look good, dressed down.

      Your maid wears clothes like this? Wow. You must have a very high class maid. It takes some taste to truly appreciate the beauty in Indian ethnic wear and I think Nandita represents it beautifully.

      She is here because she is such a refreshing change from all the bling and synthetic otherwise! For Indian weather there is no better fibre than cotton and thank God for people who understand that.
      I really like Nandita’s clothes. Love the azhrak print on her duppatta and the red is so organic and beautiful.
      And if your maid really wears as you claim, I must insist that she has a very good choice ;) ;) ;)

      I wonder why on this blog people bring maids into the picture when trying to put someone down.

      Just because someone is a social/economic class below yours, does it mean that they are automatically less stylish? Can they be stylish within their own sensibilities and capabilities?

      By your logic, the Ambani ladies should be the most stylish in India, followed by everyone else?

      Just curious…

        Yes it is terribly racist in my opinion.

      You are right. No one approves your comments.

        olala I absolutely agree…I can think of a more crude, insensitive putdown than “my maid wears these clothes”.

        1. charan at | | Reply

          I think when someone says “maid wears this”, it only refers to a regardless attitude towards clothing (ofcourse logically noone will put effort to wear nice clothes/makeup when they know they have hours of physical activity ahead of them)

          We can totally replace that “maid wears this” to “when i clean garage” reference.

    True Payal, I am not saying she doesn’t look good in what she wears. I am saying what she wears is not good enough to be posted in a blog like this. I respect her… but nope.. I don n never would agree with anyone who says she has got a good fashion sense!
    Thanks for the approval ;)

      “fashion sense” is relative…it doesn’t necessarily have to be about labels..she has her own style. What do you consider “good enough to be posted in a blog like this?”

    2. Mojo at | | Reply

      Wow, this is why we have been bogged by issues like casteism, and child labor. how old is your”:maid”? 12?
      Fashion is also about style and if you can wear a $10 Gap dress and look better and carry it off better than someone wearing a $5,000 D&G dress. Who has better style?
      Maybe your maid has a better style than you. Just saying.

    oh my god. she looks perfect, as ever. i love how she knows her mind and is classy enough to eschew fashion fads. no gowns that look like christmas trees for her. i wish more desi ladies would wear clean classy ethnic clothes like this. vidya ballan should take some pointers.

    she looks great, this outfit is so Nandita Das. I saw her at Santushti in Delhi a couple of years ago and she looks even better in person. Such a gracious women, so polite to everyone in the store.

    she looks perfect from ankles upwards, in fact she looks like a glowing earth mother but her footwear could be improved upon.

    The great thing about this post is, I saw it after lots of shots of the women at the wedding (mostly getting it wrong…) SUCH a breath of fresh air…
    …I always wonder how Sabyasachi didn’t get a hold of her.

    I think she looks lovely.So easy and comfy.Something I would wear without a second thought.
    She definitely has her own sense of fashion.Very understated and elegant.And she is very pretty and can carry off such clothes very well.

    I love Nandita JUST for the fact that mossst of the common people can relate to her style of dressing yet she teaches how to look beautiful about oneself even in simple clothes. Dont get to see this on many celebrities these days. Love it !!!!!!

    Nandita Das is SO adorable!!! I saw an article in the Indian edition of People about her Gandhian wedding…it seemed so refreshingly simple and classy and egalitarian, just like her dressing sense.

    Im going to disagree with everybody here and hope that you feautre MORE of her on this blog. :-)

  15. charan at | | Reply

    If it was anyone else, we would be saying “what was she thinking?”
    I absolutely adore Nandita for her simplicity and gorgeous face… but… but… but… watever she is wearing here is so bad, i cant believe every one is going “wow” abt it.
    there is nothing bohemian abt it (by bohemian if you mean unconventional) and i just dont understand what “Earthy” even means in this context…

    To me, she looks relaxed, not worrying abt clothes… which is fine with me.

    But all this praise for the look and clothes just doesnt sound right. Baised much?

    1. SULPHUR at | | Reply

      well.. its not about looks. ! n as one says.. fashion is here for a moment, but style is forever.. she has GOT the style.. to carry herself……. she looks elegant in watever she wore.. n dat is wat style is !!! well out of 100 posts related to big fashion names in this blog, we r just appreciating a simple outfit.

      1. charan at | | Reply

        Exactly and i dont see a “Style” here, unless we just go ahead and confuse between style and personality.

        1. SULPHUR at | | Reply

          well.. i Dont think style would mean donning a bunch of fashion labels…n i wudnt say personality coz i dnt think she has a celeb-maintained body considering her petite frame. Anyways… Just a personal opinion. lets not take it too far :-) …………..
