    Sigh..you guys are cruel to not post the confrontation pic!

    Rekha’s sari would make an admirable curtain at Versailles..and she has enough make-up on her face to repaint the whole of the great wall of China.

    Hema looks lovely though..all understated elegance…and how lovely is that Chanderi.

    And no pics of Jaya? The patron saint of the unkempt and the dowdy?

    Rekha looks her usual fabulous self,however I wish she’d wear different colour kanchis more, I know golds her signature colour but i’d love to see her varying it up a bit. Hemas saree is simple and elegant, a real classic. The last ladys saree is something you can pick up in most stores in india for a few thousand rupees, in fact i think I’ve seen the same exact design in diff. colours on a number of people. So very common and nothing special.

      “in fact i think I’ve seen the same exact design in diff. colours on a number of people. So very common and nothing special.”

      I actually thought that of ALL three saris :P Hema’s and Rekha’s look better because they have personality but none of these are outfits I would feature on a fashion blog. Then again, this is PnP’s blog and their opinion is obviously different from mine.

    Rekha is so ott, some one tell her its not a wedding. Hema looks the best

    Hema is elegance personified. Padmini’s Sari is outdated. Rekha could be just left unsaid!!..She’ll remain in her own island of bling bling..:)

    Hemant is the most graceful lady.I love her sari which is normal nothing special still she has that elegance.

    Padmini is okay okay.
    Rekha ..never learns…I just dont have words .

      Rekha doesn’t need to “learn” anything. She’s been kicking butt long before some of us were even ever born. She is a classically beautiful women with a very strong personal style. The rest of them just blend into a very bland soup of mediocrity. Hema is understated and elegant? More like boring and safe. Now Audrey Hepburn was elegant and understated even into her sixties she had her very own unique style.

        Trisha, agree with every word. For a South Indian woman , how can wearing Kanchivaram Saree be OTT? You can see it on most ladies even during a small ceremony or gathering.

        I guess at any age we all can learn a little restrain (esp makeup :)) and so can Rekha. :)

        1. Trisha at | | Reply

          There’s a difference between restrain from wearing too much makeup that is just slopped on and from when it is applied with a tremendously good eye that accentuates and beguiles. Being able to spot the difference is the key.

    oh my god i love Hema ji saree so simple yet elegant. she is a stunner. as for rekha i have no words. why the hell is she wearing a bridal dress to a book launch, or really!!!.

    someone shake this woman plzz

    Rekha looks ridiculously OTT, guests should wear shades to shield the glare..its a simple book launch for God’s sake.

    the heavy kanjivaram, jasmine and heavy jewellery is so yesterday. I wish someone would steal all the kanjeevarams in her wardrobe, forcing her to please wear some other style

    Such a pity.

      It’s not a simple book launch!! It is the showcasing of a lifetime’s work!

      It’s Gautam Rajadhyaksha’s book launch featuring a lifetime’s worth of the spectacular work he did.

      He, fyi, is one of the finest photographers/lensman/ad campaign genius of the earlier generation. His lens work is legendary (and this is before digital stuff). He has transformed the image of many a celebrity. Suffice to say he is an icon. This launch was about his book “chehre” which means ‘faces’, which showcases some of his best work and best faces.

      IMO, this is MUCH more meaningful than some store opening, or spa launch, magazine party, music launch, etc etc.

      Sorry for the rant. I mean no harm. Honest.

      Rekha’s style is not “so yesterday”. Her timeless looks are just that timeless.

    wow!! is hema malini even for real?!! she is so gorgeous…love how she ensures that its her posture and beauty that speak volumes, and not the clothes. she’s totally diva’esque. As for Rekha, are people who swoon over her just trying to be polite? she’s been overdressing for events for the past few years now. Every award function/launch/opening/party looks like her wedding…

    I agree with Gossippie above..Hema is the only one who stands out here, for her sheer presence and elegance.

    When I grow old, I hope I age like Hema, gracefully and effortlessly, and not like an over made-up tart like la Rekha or a frumpy, sour-faced, dowdy creature like JB. I can’t belive I actually liked the woman once!

      Who ever you are try and look like REkha at her age and then comment.lol.

      1. ash at | | Reply

        Imagine calling Rekha an ‘over made up tart’!! Are you thinking of Rakhi sawant perhaps?!!! Because theres no way on earth you could use those words to describe the paragon of south indian style that is Rekha. She looks like a goddess and I pray I can look half as good as her at her age. A tarts someone who prances about in tight, tiny dresses, not someone dressed to the nines in gorgeous, sumptious Kanchivarrams. What an offensive comment!

        1. Trisha at | | Reply

          I agree Ash. I was totally shocked at the stupidity of that comment myself.

        2. way2sassy at | | Reply

          That’s the whole point Zack…I don’t even WANT TO look like La Re..scrape away all that layer of pigment, and she starts to look as haggard and old as any other 60 year old. Maybe it is time to take off those rose-tinted spectacles and take a relook, no?

          1. Kristy at |

            Yeah right, haggard, nice try. Is that what they’re calling breathtaking beauty these days? She doesn’t wear makeup to look younger. She wears it to accentuate her raw South Indian exotic looks. You are extremely rude.

          I agree Ash, Rekha might be overdressed for some, but i think she looks awesome. I love the fact that she loves to wear a saree and stunning jewellery every chance she gets :)

          Hema looks elegant and lovely, both women are beautiful at their age or should i say their have aged beautifully.

          Padmini, well the saree is sorta of sad.

          1. ash at |

            You’re so right Padma, I’d do the same if I was her too. Wouldn’t you all just love to rifle through Rekhas wardrobe and get an eyeful of all those sarees, cos I know I would! As for the jewelery, don’t even get me started on how much I love that! Could you even begin to imagine her wearing that synthetic looking number padminis wearing? Now that would be truly shocking!!At least Rekha knows what suits her and sticks to it.

    Every body seems to be obsessed with how ott Rekha’s dress sense is but no one ever compliments that she has a fab figure or she looks 10 years younger than Hema, that shows that us indians just like to point out the bad never the good. How very low of us. Compliment the lady, if it was not for her the women whould not be respected in the bollywood today. She is the first one to live life on her terms in bollywood not by marrying a powerful man like, Jaya, Hema , Sridevi, tina munium etc , etc.
