    i absolutely LOVE Raima’s saree..i think she’s one understated actress who hasn’t gotten her due..and she’s so classically beautiful too! I am definitely going to get some traditional sarees the next time i’m in Kolkata

    apsara77 , totally agree with you , she is underrated, looks beautiful here.
    I think its a tussar silk with kantha work , maybe somebody can confirm
    I have one in the more traditional off-white with kantha work and it has always got compliments :-)

    love love Ramia’s saree. See what happens when you wear a saree with grace and without letting boobs hang out?? You look good!

      Totally! Raima ( or who ever draped this on her), please teach the clueless saree abusers like PC, Celina , Divya dutta and all , that this is the way to wear a saree. Does it take away from being attractive and wow- absolutely not. So soothing to the eyes after all the bikini blouses and uni/twin boob shows!

    I really like Raima’s saree–especially the geometric border.
    Wish I didn’t see the fold-creases tho’…how hard could it be to iron out the folds before walking the ramp?

    i love raima saree ,had i been a boy i would have married her,
    Riya plz change it !!!!

  13. Jems at | | Reply

    That is a straight up baithing suit under that sari..well i guess they were trying something different (for the traditional indian woman at the beach?? – lol) …they both look gorgeous however

    raima looks elegant. riya’s face looks amazing!

    Raima looks stunning. I absolutely love her look. Riya, not so much. Esp. not with the swim piece underneath.

  16. apsara77 at | | Reply

    i don’t know, the embroidery looks a bit too intricate for kantha..incidently, my mom is bringing me a kantha saree from India tomorrow (can’t wait to see both her and the saree!)..and on 2nd glance i saw some of the other models in their sarees and the one with the model wearing it like a dress with the belt is an interesting concept on an otherwise not so interesting saree..i wish riya had worn the saree with a different drape and blouse..you can be original without wearing a bathing suit…i don’t get why she needs to make everything look ‘super sexy’..i think her sister succeeds in looking sexy even in her simplicity…

    Raima is simply stunning. The sari is gorgeous, her hair and makeup are impeccable, and I especially love the modern bangles paired with the traditional necklace.

    Her sister, on the other hand, is another matter. I love her makeup; she looks like the quintessential Bengali woman.However, Riya is already a bit bottom-heavy to begin with, and that style of draping simply emphasizes that. And what is up with the bathing suit underneath!?!

    love love love raima’s overall look…..perfecto!!! two thumbs up!!!

    i am very very happy to see that they are also showcasing local talent, adt not just established names. kudos to the weavers!

    raima looks great!!!.. i dont know why, but riya always gives off a ‘trashy’ vibe to me..

  20. Carol at | | Reply

    Riya looks like a hot mess. Raima’s saree would look better if draped properly and not bunched up.

  21. KT at | | Reply

    saree with the bathing suit look skinda slutty!

  22. C. at | | Reply

    “traditional indian woman at the beach” LOL

  23. Saya at | | Reply

    Lovely saree on Raima. Riya’s face is so pretty but lacks the oomph factor for a ramp. Wish she would just hire a stylist.

  24. CocoNUT at | | Reply

    Wow i dont think i’ve ever seen raima look more beautiful! Love the sari on her.

    Why o why did they put ria in a sari like that? It looks like they just wrapped it around her, and it’s not showing the detail of the sari! Also, like someone said before, by wearing a sari like that, it just puts more emphasis on her mid section!

    Also, what is up with that bathing suit as a blouse thing? It doesn’t even match with the sari…ufff they made her look bad :(

    Raima’s saree looks fabulous and so does she.

  26. ~M! at | | Reply

    I also think it is not Kantha.. because it is traditionally more apart..

    this makes me miss Kolkata so much..

  27. Dits at | | Reply

    I like raima coz the saree worn traditionally always wins.. But sari wise I think both are nice

    Love Raima’s Saree and totally agree that Raima hasn’t gotten her due. She was wonderful in Manorama 6ft under. Great movie btw.
    P.S: I think she’s wearing a jute silk here

  29. Shruti at | | Reply

    Wow Raima is rocking that saree…It’s really gorgeous. Riya’s saree is lovely too but the draping…not so much

  30. Rashmi at | | Reply

    Bengali Beauties both of them – Raima is looking lovely and elegant.. Wish Riya had worn her Sari better – that swim suit and rope tie has to go.. just trying to be different is not working..

  31. FPDP at | | Reply

    Raima looks amazing and this is how a saree should be worn!

    What’s up with Riya? Why is she wearing whatever she is wearing?

  32. Amy at | | Reply

    Love love love Raima’s look. I want one of those sarees….I’ve always been all about fancy sarees but, this look that Raima is carrying makes me want a traditional saree….she looks so elegant!

  33. Such at | | Reply

    That last shot–Yuck!
    Riya and nearly all of the models, how terrible they make the saris look.

  34. SS at | | Reply

    I love both saris so much – these are the kind of saris I wish Bollywood actresses wore more often. Raima looks tres shic – very well put together.

  35. SS at | | Reply

    oops – chic, not shic! darn flat Macbook keyboard!

  36. Shweta at | | Reply

    WOW there is only one word for Raima: STUNNING!

  37. AnnieS at | | Reply

    I love raima and her sari – she looks gorg n elegant,I really like her as an actress too – i think she;s pretty underrated as 1 – loved her in choker bali where she actually acted much better than ash(am an ash fan for her looks not her acting much), loved her in honeymoon travels too a very natural actress – love riya here too her face is gorg!

  38. dn at | | Reply

    Raima looks so elegant and beautiful. Raima’s look is a mess with that drape and blouse (if it can be called that).

  39. stuti at | | Reply

    raima looks so amazing! i love that saree, and the drape.

  40. Divya at | | Reply

    I love Raima’s saree and look. No comments about Riya.

    My guess is, it is a Tussar ( definitely ) with Kantha on it. Although Kantha work typically comes in beige/cream shades with circular embroidery on it, you get lot of designer Kanthas these days , that too on coloured tussars.

  41. monika at | | Reply

    Love Raima’s Saree. Does look like Kantha to me.

  42. neha at | | Reply

    the swim suit is a disaster, yet i still find myself liking riya more … crazy! … i think its the bindi .. i am a sucker for the whole bengali look with huge red bindi

  43. Aathira at | | Reply

    Oh all the sarees are wonderful.. well riya’s drape is weird!

    I need to get some authentic weaves from Kolkata the next time around!

  44. poonam at | | Reply

    both look great..but isnt riya 3 feet something?i bit too short for the ramp i wud think?????

  45. Nesayir at | | Reply

    Riya looks kinda chubby!!

  46. Jay Bee at | | Reply

    forget the swimming costume beneath..what the hell h ave the done to the saree on riya. It looks like the hastily wrapped it to hide the custome.

  47. viz at | | Reply

    Raima is looking gorgeous..agree never seen her look better.

  48. fas at | | Reply

    To be quite honest, both look kinda stupid too me. There is lack of taste and elegance and Riya can do much much better with a designer like me :)

  49. Flower Power at | | Reply

    raima’s saree is definitely not kantha — the underside would not be as heavy in a kantha — but a weave.

  50. Antonia at | | Reply

    I like the maroon that Riya is wearing.
    But Raima wins. She looks like pure class. & I love her hair!!

  51. avik at | | Reply

    Riya looks like a bundle of left over bits of clothes in tht saree. and whatever on earth was she thinking when wearing that cheap lycra thingy underneath that saree and why has she draped that huuuuge piece of fabric around her waist ?? makes her look 4 months preggy !!! ewwww………

    raima looks OK. we have seen better traditional sarees in Kolkata. too much is being made out of her look. she looks OK yeah but nothing mirror cracking !
