    She looks stunning…I don’t find a single fault here. That fishtail braid is so nicely done.

    Lovely Colour on Ms. Balan! She looks gorgeous!

    I think she looks absolutely amazing. When she has her hair open, you guys say it weighs her down. When she braids it, you say make it softer. Make up your minds!! She looks really pretty and radiant here. Period.

    Such cheery and pretty colors for the monsoon. As for the braid, am just glad to see her hair not loose and parted in the middle.

    Wow, gorgeous. Love that she went with the simple everyday braid. It adds a certain elegance. also love that she pleated the pallu once which allowed her to lose the arm crook pose in a couple of photos.

    Lovely! The bindi is a little too high though.

    Here Vidya Balan has vey thin hair. So she uses hair extensions to make it thick all the time. But those hair extensions when hair left open are adding lot of volume to an already bulky voluminous dressing.

    1. Adara at | | Reply

      Oh so that mass of an unkempt hair when she has it open were extensions. Makes sense. I was wondering what happened to all that hair, the braid is so thin like a rat tail . Good Lord! True about the bulky dressing, look at her sandals even that is.

        Haha! same thoughts Adara.

        1. Adara at | | Reply

          The irony is P&P had the same honest opinion about this lady’s ghastly fashion sense (or the lack of it). If you go through the archives, you will find tons (unless they deleted it.ahem). But last few years they started giving her free pass owing to the scary aunty mob at HHC. :D

          1. Sapphire at |

            Hey Adara, do you retail saris? Coz I saw Adara sarees on a website which advertises on HHC. Just curious.

        2. Adara at | | Reply

          That’s not me, Sapphire. I have never seen that ad. :)

          Also for people who have commented about good taste. Yes, if not appreciating shabby-bad dressing which does not limit to nasty hair colored fake hair with extensions, unkempt hair, bad draping, cheap accessories, fugly wedges and sometimes fake eye lenses is considered bad taste. I sure can live with that ladies. Thanks. :)

            It’s not about whether you dislike hair extensions, wedges etc, it’s about being able to express one’s opinions without resorting to name-calling. I understand that the distinction is hard for you to grasp.

        Hi Adara Aunty, Welcome back!

          Thanks, Aritra Aunty.

        I think likening her hair to a rat-tail is a step over the good-taste line.

        1. Paroma at | | Reply

          Lol I think expecting good taste from Adara is a lost cause. She seems to thrive on negative attention.

        Done know how such shaming comments get through the moderation. Bias much, PnP???

        1. Vysh at | | Reply

          +1 P&P, sometimes I find that your moderation is inconsistent. You even let in some borderline racist comments which is surprising to me.

          1. Payal at |

            We try our best, sometimes some comments get through when we are approving a bulk at a time. Most times they are rectified when someone points out to us. Remember again, we are just the two of us managing the whole site…

    Love her the way she is , braid included. Love her sari.

    That arm crook…sigh! Now i realise why Kirron Kher always carries a batua

  16. Deeps at | | Reply

    i like the braid…..minus the middle parted hair plz

  17. Rocky Mountain at | | Reply

    LOVELY!! Like a typical Iyer girl that she is.. Gorgeous…. I am glad she did not wear fake hair or extensions. I am extremely proud of her, that she doesnt choose to “doll” herself up in clothing going around half naked like Malaika or Lisa Hayden (?) in that shimmering blue and gold on second page

    If thats what fashion is, I am happy Vidya is totally unfashionable

    I dont agree with Chennaidiva’s comments at all, what does “dress according to her position mean?” All the Tamil actresses look like they are about to go for a Playboy or Vogue shoot, there is no originality left. There is no distinction, from stars naming their new borns DAMIEN to dressing up like Angelina Jolie, wev’e become one anorexic copy cat culture

      +100.. loving her look completely..

    Not bad but then again nothing new either.

    Argh…another messy pallu!

  20. Ashes of Roses at | | Reply

    Love her for keeping her looks original and sticking to her style. But minor tweaks needed on the saree draping, arm placement etc which is getting too monotonous. Love to see her one day in a nice fitted denim and casual tee or shirt.

  21. Kartik at | | Reply

    she looks lovely. And all that black and white background gives such a good contrast. will change nothing. Love it…

    A typical iyer -iyengar girl or maami will be insulted by such a comment. How wonderfully they wear their drapes, the hairstyles, the nice jumkis, maalas on them and comparing them with this lady? LMAO!

    1. Avani at | | Reply

      Couldn’t have said it better! The Maamis are prettily dressed. Vidya Balan is a lost cause, she and fashion or graceful in the same sentence is an oxymoron. lol.

      1. Kartik at | | Reply

        What about this look is not graceful. She looks beautiful and radiant. One can drape saris in many ways. And the way she does it is equally graceful. She gives an educated intellectual leftist vibe, which she is- something that cannot be said about any other actress baring the likes of konkana or nandita. Vidya wears saris so organically.. It’s like her extension. I hate those pinned up drapes where a sari ends up looking like a dress.

    Vidya Balan is such a beautiful woman! She looks pretty darn amazing here.
