In Manish Malhotra

50

Also attending the IPL Gala Dinner in Capetown in South Africa was Preity Zinta who wore a white Manish Malhotra sari from the designer’s recent collection previewed at Lakme Fashion Week held last month.

Although, the sari looks quite like what Kareena wore to the 2009 Filmfare Awards, Preity’s is actually different. Hers doesn’t have the extra design on the body that Kareena had. You can check out Kareena’s Manish Malhotra sari, also shown on the runway in a different color, here.

Thanks ‘luna’ for the tipoff.

  1. Looks like fashion has come a full circle…it is back to Ramayan and Mahabharat days. That is when the ladies never wore blouses, just some wrap around the bust :) LOL

    The sari is gorgeous, but I don’t dig the no blouse treatment.

  2. wow, her earrings are gorgeous! the sari is nice too, i like the combination of white and green. but just can’t get over how pretty her earrings are. she has worn them before too, but they didn’t have such a wow effect last time (with a similar looking black sari).

  3. she looks stunning! i love her earrings and she looks gorgeous without that extra layer of makeup. everything about the look is exquisite.. from the hair, to the minimal jewelry to the make up and the sari.

  5. how do you get the pallu to stay on your shoulder with a tubetop? do they use two-way adhesive tape?

    Preity is one of the few B’wood women who looks stunning after her weight loss.

    love this look on her.

  7. she’s looking good in that sari. it’s nice to see her wearing indian outfits once in a while.
    now those earrings, sure they’re nice, but she’s been wearing them at almost every big event she’s attended for the past 2 years at least. i think it’s time she get new ones…

  8. I didn’t think I would like the whole blouseless look, but Preity looks absolutely gorgeous. I love those emerald earrings, and they look fabulous with the traditional sari. It’s in a way quite humbling to see stars repeat their outfits and accessories, especially people who are grossly overpaid. My one small gripe is the colored contacts; why is it that Indians think lighter eyes automatically equals more beautiful? I am fiercely proud of my dark eyes!

  9. she wears it VERY well (although, I like the color on the runway version better)
    and actually, I find the whole Ramayan and Mahabharat interesting- I sort of like the idea (and, again, she pulls it off VERY well)
    the emerald and the gold/cream/beige is exquisite

    • I think it looks better without a blouse, not to mention that the Saree emaphasises her beauty.

      The less clothing we wear the less we contribute to carbon emissions and global warming.

      All women should wear their Saree without blouses as it really brings out the beauty and eastern look.

      It makes one proud to be and Indian as it also shows how classy a Saree looks without ablouse

  11. Hi, I don’t think the saree Preity is wearing is exactly the same as the runway piece. She has worn a white saree before which is identical to the runway piece you have included in the post.

  12. The earrings are nice no doubt …. but I think we have already seen her wear this … at Drona premiere … it is quite similar to the Chopard emerald and diamond necklace that she wore at Cannes.

  13. @PeachBellini:
    From what I recall, in her earlier movies and appearances, she’s always had dark eyes. Lately, she’s had the habit of donning hazel-ish contacts. Not that there’s anything wrong with that; I’m all for experimenting. It’s just that it’s a growing trend amongst Indian celebrities as a way to appear more “white”.

  15. just a point on the eye-contacts statement..

    if an american/european woman wears black/brown contacts, no one accuses her of trying to be “brown”.
    then why are indians accused of trying to be “white” if they chose to wear blue/hazel contacts?

  16. I’m sorry but I really need to ask, Whats the big deal???. She looks nice.Nice, nothing more nothing less. The blouse is just too boring I actually prefer the runway version….

  17. Hmm.. I don’t mind the lenses as long as you look good in them.. sadly very few people look good in an eye colour not theirs.. I’ve seen a few looks that have been ruined by a bad choice in lenses.. Evil looking, popped out, red rimmed eyes are so not the height of fashion.

    I really do like Preity here. Even with a tube top she manages to look elegant. And she draped the Sari properly!! That’s worth a few gold medals.. The Sari has the right amount of bling and the colour suits her though I rather like the colour the model’s wearing.

    @JS. Sometimes a simple, decent ‘nice’ works much better than a potential ‘Wtheyy’

  18. I don’t know why people are griping so much about the tube top.. it’s much nicer to expose a shoulder than expose the front of your blouse like other celebs were doing.
