Rekha was felicitated with a Lifetime Achievement Award on the opening night of the Dubai International Film Festival and she attended the ceremony sporting her signature look but with her hair down. Sunday evening, she attended the Star Screen Awards wearing another heavy silk sari but wore her hair up in a bun complete with mogra.

Which look of hers do you like more?

  1. Sridevi needs to learn how to keep it elegant in a saree from Ms. Rekha. What was that gaudy sequin one she was wearing! Rekha is elegance personified.

    • Sridevi looks elegant in a sari most of the time, plus she switches it up and tries many different looks. She definitely doesn’t need any lessons from Rekha as she herself wears and carries off a kanjeevarams beautifully! Rekha still looks good but is always dressed way too gaudy, same old heavy sarees loaded with gold jewelry and potlis. Wish she would go for some simpler looks, she has so much potential.

      • Rekha has fine tuned and stayed true to her aesthetics. She has a strong personality reflected in how she dresses. Her style is ageless and not dependent on current fashions or designers.

      • Agree with Maya.
        Rekha wears the same heavy saris and piles of jewelry to every outing and it is hard to distinguish one appearance to the other.
        She can change it up and still dress in silks without resorting to current designs. I am tired of seeing her same appearance every time.

        • Exactly! So many beautiful silk sarees and colors to choose from! It’s nice to have one signature thing to be distinguished by, but not a whole look. It just feels redundant and boring then. I just want to see her in a simple elegant sari and jewels because she still looks so amazing, face, figure, hair, everything :))

      • Agree. I love both Sridevi & Rekha. Both uberly gorgeous women who wears their saris well. But Sridevi in any sari is divinely elegant. She does not need any lessons from anyone at any decade, in fact most who say they only (ahem) wear saris should take notes from her.

  2. Loved both the looks. The necklace she wore at the awards function resembles the one Sridevi wore at the Karva Chauth. Is it a South Indian Necklace? Both hers and Sri’s necklaces are so beautiful!!! I wonder if they are made by Amrapali.

  3. Its Rekha’s impeccable style of these sarees and its iconic and shows in her passion of keeping it elegant. I have grown up seeing her in sarees and same way, evergreen beauty.

      Rekha is ever green beauty. I love to see Rekha’s sightings, because I can see her vintage silk sarees and vintage gold jewelry from her own wardrobe. Which is a rarity. Unlike others who get featured here wearing loaned designer stuff for that day and returning back. There is no individuality in that. Rekha has a strong individual style which unique only to her. Though she dresses so beautifully every single time, I wish she would tone down her make up, lip color, accessorizing and wear various other type of traditional weaves and cotton weaves etc. If she does that she can be one of my Style Icons.

        • Oh my comment made you think like that? Then I must have written wrongly. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to take away anything from her credit. She is already a style icon for her unique dressing style. I want to give her credit not take anything away. I love her sarees and style. It’s timeless. I just wished she would tone down. Again don’t get me wrong, she is already a famous style icon. I want her to be that, I am her well wisher. :-)

  4. She has maintained herself really well and kudos to her for that.

    She does look lovely. But seeing this style so many times over and over again is getting a bit boring and she has so much potential to try other stuff.

  5. Maybe I am the only one but I do believe that with a silk saree, one can always let the saree have its moment instead of piling on your entire bank account with it. There is no doubt that Rekha ji as well as Sridevi ji carry sarees really gracefully. However, I do also feel that with a silk saree on, both of them always end up over-doing it with excessive jewellery (wearing heavy jhumkas with an elaborate necklace), stack of bangles, bold lip & eye make-up, gajra, and even vermilion (it is not an ‘accessory’ so to speak but people wear it boldly along with everything else). It all comes together really crowded in my opinion and looks downright excessive at the first glance itself. Precisely that’s why, no matter how graceful Rekhaji or Srideviji are in a SILK saree (silk saree are keywords here) to others; For me, that elegance is always lost in the jungle of so many things worn together!
    Silk saree is a beautiful jewellery in itself. The wearer instantly looks so festive because of the fabric’s celebratory appeal. Rekha ji looks good here but I don’t think she would have looked any lesser lovely had she gone with a lesser excessive look.

    • BlueBells, I could not agree more with you on your comment. Less is more and I agree, the saree should take center stage. But that would look ordinary when they are shooting for the extraordinary star factor! To each his own! :)

      • Thanks SS :) While that is true that in an attempt to bring the star factor out, people end up doing excessive but, like SRK said in Dear Zindagi.. ‘Genius is to know when to stop’. :P
        Yup to each his own. :)

  6. She looks lovely in both the looks – with her hair up & her hair down. Rekha is an enigma, and she’s perfected her style over time. True she doesn’t need to wear Kanjeevarams all the time nor must she always pile on the gold. But I applaud her for embracing her heritage whole-heartedly and not giving two hoots about what anybody thinks. The sarees, the jewellery are as timeless as Rekha herself.

  7. I love her in both. Rehka is timeless and owns her style. Everyone else has a stylist and try to be trendy but Rehka always stays to true to herself.

  8. She looks fantastic in both. She is a living legend who never cared a hoot about what others thought in an age/time where such an attitude was a clear path to destruction (that too in a movie industry).
