    i must disagree- totally tacky, right from the print (wrong type of flowers, they are too big,and the colours don’t agree,esp. the colour of the background) and the trim,which makes it ten times worse.

    yayyyyyy for a classic red bindi. We need to see more of these!

          Kudos to the Bindi! I agree – nothing more Indian and classic than this bindi. Enough of that jeweled crap. The bindi just lights up the face.

          Return of the classic bindi! Like!

    the way she has draped the sari isnt right…it makes her luk dowdy!!!
    on its own, the sari is wonderful though!!….very good floral pattern and i like pearls also!!…but it is the subject who hasnt carried all the stuff well!!

      hehe, I agree, the styling is nice but the draping is all wrong. If put on correctly it would have been a perfect look.

      1. Bluesapphire at | | Reply

        oh and that clutch, I think she could have gone for something plain because she is wearing a floral sari anyway. Its just a clash of prints.

    This really is very elegant. I do believe a lot of the elegance comes from the person rather then the clothes.

    Imagine Vidya balan wearing this print of Sari then we’d be singing a whole different tune.

    wow – she looks so chic and like you said loving the whole vintage thing what with the fantastic pearls and simple accessories. I’ve got a floral silk chiffon similar to that and she’s made me want to whip it out, attatch a border on to it and wear it right away!

    it’s a lovely sari. definitely better than manish malhotras

    i really like the necklace she is wearing.

    i don get you ppl sometimes…this is sucha a eyesore..n the pearls such mismatch…u guys have sucha pattern..give u a non glamourous kinda look ..u l go gaga over it even ifs really bad eg nandita dad in her silly skirts..n then after some days u ll rip apart the same thing…

    1. cutie at | | Reply

      haha, i agree ;)

  9. nani at | | Reply

    Not fair.If it was Vidya Balan in this saree, you’d have ripped her apart. The shiny border is tacky, and the pearls could have done with a few strands less. And how sad is that blouse?

    1. Priya at | | Reply

      So agree with you, nani! If it was Vidya, u guys would have glutted her.

      1. GG at | | Reply

        Totally! come on this sari is down right tacky. No amount of pearls or champagne is going add class to it.

      2. Siddharth at | | Reply

        @nani 100% agreed … way too many pearls… i guess i do like the Sari though. Those complaining about the draping i think she is wearing it the right way.

    2. SK at | | Reply

      common man! we go after Vidya as this is all she wears! NOT because she wears a saree or wears a bad saree.
      infact on most occassions P&P like her sarees but not the fact that she’s wearing one again…

  10. nani at | | Reply

    Oh, and it is badly draped as well, isn’t it?

  11. rr at | | Reply

    that is a BEAUTIFUL saree!! just wish she had worn it a bit better… but she still looks good

  12. _*Dia*_ at | | Reply

    I love this appearance. It is a classic. Plus the multistrand pearl necklace makes it look young. if it was a simple one-strand pearl necklace, it would look aged. love it!

  13. Nicole Singh at | | Reply

    minus the clutch and pearls…….just the sari…..so vintage-esque and so pretty.

  14. I am Fashion at | | Reply

    How do you guys know it is a vintage piece? May be it is a vintage inspired print? It seems to have detailing that is more updated like the sliver lining on the blouse and sari. Would you be able to confirm if this is vintage or not? Maybe she took her mom’s and updated it ..either way I think it is a spectacular piece…very Gayatri devi…

  15. SS at | | Reply

    PnP you have GOT to be kidding me! the sari is HORRIBLE!! Now take her away and input vidya balan instead ….and see how much flak she wud have got from you….! it looks like a maid servant’s sari….HORRIBLE!! HATE IT

  16. Elke at | | Reply

    ohh so elegant!

  17. FashionFetish at | | Reply

    Wow…. that’s regal ! Can you please tell where in India can I find such sarees ? designers or locales… ?

  18. Zee at | | Reply

    Oooooooooooooooo! Love this look. I had forgotten how great Indian women looked in the 60’s and 70’s movies.
    This lady looks great.

  19. sri at | | Reply

    i hate floral sarees too..maybe small floral print wud do. this wud be my moms fav saree but not mine..so yeah def vintage. looks like she matched her clutch to the border. the pearls need to be smaller in size. overall, it suits the woman. i wud never wear this

  20. shireen at | | Reply

    Dreadful! Reminds me of those chintzy drapes/ bedspreads in vintage British teleserials

  21. Prem Rogue at | | Reply

    I don’t understand what so regal about this sari. It looks like the typical thing women wear when buying vegetables at the sabji mandi.

  22. Rashmi at | | Reply

    agree the saree is beautiful but she should’ve worn a different blouse either a black or the color of the flower. also the clutch is sooooo not complementing the look

  23. anita at | | Reply

    whoa. Pnp – really surprised that you like the ensemble – i find it rather tacky

  24. Saba Parkar at | | Reply

    To be fair to PnP, they often don’t have a problem particularly with what Vidya Balan wears, but more so with how she wears it or how she falls into a boring rut.

    I think the sari is pretty. I would drop the clutch, switch the blouse, and reduce the strands of pearls. However, the woman carries it very gracefully.

  25. lolita at | | Reply

    Very gaudy and tacky indeed!
    Don’t even get me started about the draping bit…
    A true WHATEYY for me….she should donate it back to her maid servant….

    1. eclat at | | Reply

      Wow… I’m sorry to harangue, but that doesn’t sound classy at all. I’m sure if the maid “servants” could afford better they would dress well too…They wear what they can, and if that be floral nylon sarees, I don’t think we should diss them for it- at least they wear them with personality and grace. Instead, why not try “donating” some of our lovely Kanjivarams, etc. if we want to raise “taste” levels?

      1. eclat at | | Reply

        and yes, too many “…”, I know. I normally don’t use them in real life ;/

          hear hear eclat, I am coming across so many comments on this site which say my “bai” , “maid” would have worn it. do we even realize how classist that sounds.
          the lady who works in our place works from day to night in several homes and looks after her own home and kids, but still wears a nice saree every day ( dare I say draped better then most ladies on this site) with a beautiful red bindi and has her hair in a neat bun….sorry for digressing from the topic but for me this is what well dressed means, making the best use of whatever resources one may have.

          1. goga at |

            well said…

            Cheers to that, Bharati. So true.

  26. J at | | Reply

    This is a very classy look from the lady. I totally get why PnP like it. It is age appropriate and personality appropriate. The same may have been a different story on a younger woman.

    Looks like she has taken off the bedsheets from my grandma’s shabbychic home. oh, can imagine what freida would look like a few decades from now…

  28. ss at | | Reply

    that sari is not only tacky but its badly draped too. Those pearls are such a mismatch with the gold border & gold accessories…and i dont think its a vintage sari.

  29. annie at | | Reply

    You may want to call the sari vintage inspired unless you are sure of its origins. The ugly watch, extra large pearl necklace, gold bracelet, and the mismatched clutch… nothing is working here for me.

  30. venus at | | Reply

    very tacky, and the blouse and pearls are total mismatch

  31. mj15 at | | Reply

    beautifully done…harks back to the days of royal understated looks…very maharani gayatri devi!! love love love…reminds me of all my rajput aunts in jaipur in their gauzy chiffons and pearls :-)

  32. Mayuri at | | Reply

    I’m going to disagree like mad here!
    The blouse does not fit right, the saree is not draped right, the pearls are 3 strings too many, to wear with a print like this, and the outlandish ring and gold bangles clash with the pearls!
    And do I see Pink shoes peeping put from beneath the saree hem??? *be still my beating heart!*

  33. pdaervo at | | Reply

    Classy classy classy. I fail to see how this is gaudy. Or plain. I likw this.

  34. Abby at | | Reply

    HORRIBLE Saree………..

  35. LADesi at | | Reply

    LOVE the vintage print. Not so excited about the draping or the blouse though. Overall she carries herself quite well.

  36. RM at | | Reply

    This is so ordinary plain… I love floral chiffons/georgettes but this one no way… and agree the pearls are two strings too many, teh drape is not right..and gold bangles and gold ring with pearls .. no.. if she wanted gold she should have opted for a gold neckpiece instead of pearls and it wld be ok…

  37. Kiwi at | | Reply

    I love floral chiffons with perals and that’s my standard look in summer for office. This could have been a classic look, but firstly the saree is really badly tied, the border is not nice. The print is so-so.. I have afar better collection. Still its a nice, understated look overall. I still think Gauri Khan’s floral saree was a great look( P & P had not liked it). In delhi dos, most of the ex royal women have this look down pat, esp at the races

    Love it! So old fashioned and nice! Simple and yet Glam. and on a gorgeous face.

    Tres dramatique! Very Gayatri Devisque. ME LIKE!!!

  40. SS at | | Reply

    Come on, now!! HHC…you are not serious, are you? there is nothing in here worth liking. now if Sharmila Tagore wore this, not only would it be age appropriate, they would also have the hair and ommph to carry it off…that is simply not happening here!!

    I love this saree although the pearls are a little too much in your face. I wish she had taken the time to wear it elegantly like Gayathri Devi .

    Love the sari!

  43. Swati at | | Reply

    very elegant .. reminds you of yesteryears … it is such a relief from all those chamak-dhamak manish malhotras and those heavy kanjivarams…

    very beautiful …. simple floral chiffons are really not in vogue, haven’t been for a long time but when i see someone wear it, i love it instantly.

    They do tend to make a person look older but if you are in your late 30s or in your 40s, then it is a classic understated look that stands out amidst all the glitz n glamour.

    i gotta give hhc brownie points for giving the orginal chiffon sari its due – this one is stunning! very vintage and a great print. lovely model.

  45. Pallavi at | | Reply

    Good look..could have better though. .Chiffon and pearls..reminiscent of Maharani Gayatri Devi. On the flip, she could have done herself up far better.
