    i think rani has finally invested in a stylist that she so desperately needed…..i mean before this i could never imagine rani in a grey outfit minus OTT accesories

    Quite nice apart from that push up bra.

    On a lovely dress like this, its sad too see bumps on top.

    Rani’s probably the trimmest she’s ever been, but something about her — maybe the lack of height? — just doesn’t work with western clothing. It’s not just about weight guys, it’s about some insurmountable facts of physicality! Western clothes are just MEANT to hang better on flatter bodies! Now imagine Sonam in this dress…

    1. bins at | | Reply

      But in the West, there a lot more girls who like Rani vs. Sonam. They all look great! Look Sonam has a great body and is tall and lean. Still, that doesn’t mean she’s the only one who can wear Western clothes.

      Yeah! P&P please cover Rani from Dus ka Dum..it looked like she was wearing only a top. Jeez.

    wish she’d stop crossing her arms like that in an awkward pose…

    Can I just say how lovely it is to be seeing Rani? I was getting soo sick of seeing Priyanka and Katrina. She looks great… gosh hope her shoes were nice… I think sneakers would be the only shoes that would look bad with this outfit… any colour would look fine so hopefully…

    She looks good. She finally got it after after some missteps.

    SWIT SOO!! The eye makeup is great with this dress. The hair also looks good, the side fringe makes a diff from the usual hair we see her in. I like the dress cause it can be worn casually too!

  18. emem at | | Reply

    me no likey.. she looks frumpy

  19. lg at | | Reply

    She looks great here!! Now this is the way to show off all your hard work on your body….she looks fit and fabulous!

  20. AA at | | Reply

    Thats just too much makeup for this outfit!

  21. Kanira at | | Reply

    Good to see Rani back in shape…her hair looks well styled..but I found the dress a tad boring…even if doing casual..

  22. suchi at | | Reply

    this looks really good on her

  23. priyam at | | Reply

    She looks great!! She’s come a long wayyy…lets be appreciative! :)

  24. charan at | | Reply

    This is looking ok but she is not able to bring out the chic vibe… she should try to be more herself.

  25. Hi at | | Reply

    You guys don’t like her ? She looks gr8 ! And its just some small radio event. Why more edgy shoes ? The makeup is brilliant !

  26. Roni at | | Reply

    NAH………its a case of ‘plain jane’ to me……….she gotta have more omph to show of her new bod……….

  27. Rashmi at | | Reply

    She looks nice :-)! I like her look – well put together..she is short so to pull off any look will take some effort.

  28. P at | | Reply

    I can’t believe no one has commented on this post yet…Rani looks so stunning and chic. She has inspired me to hit the gym immediately. Hot!

    Agree with p&p

  30. jillie at | | Reply

    Rani has never looked better!

  31. nefertiti at | | Reply

    I don’t think I have ever felt this way with indian actors. but I think she should lighten her hair a bit. Would like nice and warm on her.

    she looks lovely.

  32. PeachBellini at | | Reply

    she looks nice here. like others, i too like the different hair and the eye makeup. i especially feel that the heavy eye makeup sort of balances the casual-ness of the jersey top in the dress. the only issues i have are her pose (sends out a meek vibe, it makes her look a bit afraid) and the shoes (i think teh ankle straps make her legs look shorter. she should’ve borrowed preity’s black louboutin pumps).

    oh and also, i will continue replying to other people’s comments if i’ve got something to add. thanks, P&P, for giving us this platform to voice our opinions :)

    Um…not to be rude (and as a fellow short one who has to slave for hours in the gym to be reasonably fit) but…does she still have this “fit” body?? She was never REALLY toned and…I don’t know. She looks a little stumpy in this…and I don’t know, something’s off. Maybe it’s the hair. I’m shorter than she is, and I totally work the western clothing -__- so don’t even go there girlies.

    1. Sej at | | Reply

      You know I am glad you dared to post this because I thought I was the only one-especially since I too am a ‘fellow short one who has to slave for hours in the gym to be reasonably fit’. She looks slimmer and it’s apparent that she works out but I am not sure I would go as far as ‘fit’ and ‘perfectly toned’ and all that shabang. Rather it’s more like compared to Rani from the past she is more fit now.

      1. s at | | Reply

        aye, aye from a fellow shortie, Rani has lost weight, but she doesnt look toned here and i dont think this look is that great either.

      2. beans at | | Reply

        totally agree with the two of you! she looks slimmer but only in relative terms… and the combination of that dress (two colour blocks) with those ankle-strap sandals… makes her look thick-waisted, with short legs…

        1. pdaervo at | | Reply

          Thick waisted is right…I don’t think Rani’s ever had a really tiny waist though, she’s pretty pear shaped. This is just unflattering.

          1. shopaholicNY at |

            ohhh gosh–finally people who agree that Rani’s so called weight loss isnt all that it is touted to be–

    2. HI at | | Reply

      The western toned and the Indian toned are two different things. I’m sure its a case off ” tooo toned bodies do not look good in Indian clothes” . So they find a middle ground like this one – a slim body. I’m not sure who called her ” toned ” . Its not the right word. But she does have a great body ! Lets commend the weight loss !

      1. pdaervo at | | Reply

        Are they two different things? I disagree about the idea that toned bodies do not look good in Indian clothes, look at the models, they looks fabulous. Nicely toned arms work GREAT with a saree. I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with not being not toned, but we shorties don’t carry weight very well. She’s lost weight for sure, but let’s not call her the epitome of fitness (and I don’t even mean bulky).

        You know, I do think that she’s pretty toned and muscular, this dress just doesn’t highlight that.

        1. preeths at | | Reply

          id like to add something here!

          Some short women just have broader structure, so no matter how much they work out or how much weight they lose, they dont look LEAN. this is sometimes translated to not “looking” fit. Even tall women have the same issue. For eg: Bipasha and Deepika both are of the same height (almost) but bipasha has a broader body frame so no matter how toned she is, she will still look bigger than Deepika, who is extremely lean!

          Everyones body is different! ita not about how thin you are or how toned you are, its making the best of your body.

  34. FOB at | | Reply

    I think it’s her face. I mean her body is the slimmest it’s ever been and that’s not the problem. I know there are people who can pull off western clothing without even abody like hers (plenty of Bollywood aunties and socialites). I think her face is too “Indian” for lack of a better word. It’s round and wide and just….very Indian. And on top of that it’s her personality. She really looks like she owns the territory when she wears sarees. In outfits like these, you can make out she’s not at her most confident.

    1. Anu at | | Reply

      I think it takes time to gain the kind of confidence ur talking about…at least she’s trying and is not making a fool out of herself…I mean, she isn’t trying to be in ur face cool or trying too hard to be sexy…she’s experimenting…also she may have been a queen in the sari territory in the past because her body just didn’t compliment western wear…sari’s hide the worst of ur body flaws, and they drape your assets the best…lets give her time to evolve her fashion sense…no harm in that rite?

  35. priya at | | Reply

    Rani looks fabulous here, especially compare to the recent Hi Blitz disaster. as much as i like her here, she just seems more comfortable and more herself in Indianwear than anything western. her recent attempts seem desperate somehow….like shez trying to join the teen brigade.

  36. priya at | | Reply

    oh and that smile……..wow!

  37. Saritha at | | Reply

    I love Rani….she is fabulous! the hard work that she put on is showing. Her skin is glowing!

  38. Antonia at | | Reply

    LOVE the dress. Shoes do nothing for me though.
    But overall good job Rani (&/or Rani’s stylist). Can’t wait to see her next appearance ^_^.

    1. akaa at | | Reply

      you’ve got to see her in Dus Ka Dum .. that would be a shock :)

  39. KK at | | Reply

    FINALLY!!!!!!!! She looks really good here!!! Even though I’m not a fan of the shoes. She still looks gorgeous!

  40. HHC Fan at | | Reply

    I think she looks great! Not perfect but come on it’s Rani…in relative terms she looks great! Hopefully she will find her groove with western wear as she continues to try different things…being shorty myself I know how tough it is to be trendy without looking like donuld duck :)

  41. Anu at | | Reply

    Rani looks awesome…she isn’t stick thin, and doesn’t look starved…yes she is short, but I think this length complements her…the best thing about her new look, is that her body still has the necessary curves…I don’t think you need to be flat to pull of western clothes…honestly, in the west pple spend money to get ‘enhancements’…so the curvy look with this dress is fine…my only gripe is that her side sweep fringe looks a little too school girlish…a slightly more relaxed hair do would have made her look more at ease…but really there isn’t much to critique about this look…

  42. Anu at | | Reply

    The dress is ok, nothing too great. It needed some sky high black pumps to take it to another level. Or maybe even a pop of color with bright colored pumps.

    P.S. – Rani (and Priyanka) always looks10000000 times better when she is smiling. Not fake posing smiling, but like a big toothy smile.

  43. Hema at | | Reply

    She looks great ,love the dress , the hair :) Well done Rani !

  44. anoo at | | Reply

    stylists dnt do such a crappy job!!!i doubt she hired one…..is the skirt same as the one on the model??hate the shoes…..she shd stick to sabyasachi!!!

    The gal looks great!

  46. Lalitha at | | Reply

    She is back and look at her! Fantastic! Much prefer this to her Hi Blitz photospread. Bollywood’s queen is back, and how!

  47. akaa at | | Reply

    IDK .. but something is off!! The shoes maybe .. or may be the hair… its not like a WOW .. which almost always used to happen for me earlier (yes!!, with all that weight).
    I think it’s the face .. something’s missing .. that raw appeal she had is missing ,, I am yet to see a recent RAni appearance which would make me go bonkers!!

    But seriously P&P, you’ve got to cover Rani in Dus Ka Dum.. i mean that’s something!!

  48. diptiN at | | Reply

    I am not a fan of BCBG, but she looks good, she looked better in the M missoni maxi, but she wore on Dus Ka Dum was absolutely outragous. Shoes that tie around the ankle make one’s legs look shorter.

  49. Soha at | | Reply

    OMG! Finally Rani is not looking like an auntie, she looks fab, fresh and young…that is a huge improvment

  50. Nick at | | Reply

    Very well done… I would not listen to anything bad about this. A big refresher after the series of dull looks. I have no idea what everyone is talking about but she looks fit.

  51. CD at | | Reply

    No…doesn’t work for me….the dress does not suit her height/body type. But much better make up than before!

  52. padma at | | Reply

    ok the shoes disappoint, she had a gazillion other options for it, hmm.

  53. iforgotmyfakenameonhere at | | Reply

    She looks awesome! Beautiful hair, dress, everything.

    As for the comments about her frame– well, not everyone wants bony limbs and flat boobs…she does have curves, which make her look feminine and attractive. Most guys don’t like to caress bones or rock hard biceps, they like a little softness and rani has a good balance of it.

  54. uumema at | | Reply

    she is lookin young n cute i think the shoes r just perfect….i feel tht some ppl r over critical!!! n try to find unecessary flaws!!
