    I think she looks absolutely lovely! love the color, the print- perfectly appropriate for her age, and the nice warm beach days of Cannes!

    i think she looks lovely. It is clear that she has a style of her own..and i prefer the printed one because ever since the 90’s the solid chiffon sarees have been so in vogue that there is no uniqueness to it. In choosing the printed one, Sharmila actually stand out more. She totally reminds me of my mom in these photos!

    Lovely, she looks so graceful and dignified. I prefer the printed one as well, as it is a sunny daytime outdoor event. So beautiful.

    I love the floral print better too rather than the plain one….only becoz I think it goes with the beachy vibe that this festival gives… I think plain yellow would have been a little boring ish.. She looks ELEGANT

    Gosh she is elegance & grace personified. Love her!!! Why can’t her daughter take some tips from her?

    plain yellow would have looked so boring

    @Ratan: Her daughter is an adult who has her own personality. She is not going to be a copy of her Mom good or bad.

    Sharmila Tagore looks very nice. The print is nice.

    I think the print looks so summery and light. love her simple elegance in this world of chamak chaloo sarees. she hols her own standing with robin wright.

    She should be offered to do the ads for timeless elegant watches, or is she already in it? I cannot forget her rice commercial, more than the rice, it’s her I think light green sari and her hectagonal shaped watch she’s wearing in that ad.

    She looks absolutely stunning. Love the print . Love the elegance. XOXOXOXOXO

    She looks the best amongst all the ladies in the picture (some half her age!!)

    She can give all the others in the picture a run for their money!!

    Wow, she looks absolutely beautiful and classy! Her skin is realllly nice.

    my goodness she looks younger than robin wright Penn! What does she do to remain so young and fresh? I’m sure it’s not the fair n lovely cream :) I too prefer this printed to a plain sari she definitely embodies “Timeless Elegance”

    Love it! Would have looked even better if the sleeves were not so long and matronly.

    she looks so elegant..
    im actually excited to see her next appearance

    The Sari looks as plain and boring as it can.. I havent seen a more boring Sari like this in a long time, just because its plain doesnt make it elegant, it might be looking great when you see it in person but for pictures, no it looks too plain and boring..

  20. Aarti at | | Reply

    I love it. Liked the print to. plain would hv been boring….

  21. worship_elle at | | Reply

    its simple, she looks fine .. you two are too hard on her!

  22. grozny at | | Reply

    I’m afraid, i have to disagree with most of you. Although she herself looks graceful, the sari is drab and frankly ,so ordinary. Not befitting a jury member at Cannes. Pity, because with the right sari, she could have totally stolen the show!

  23. Nepali at | | Reply

    LOL@almost all your comments Siddharth, nice to know from a guy’s point of view.

  24. Rashmi at | | Reply

    lovely and elegant – yay! way to go – she has done what many before her at Cannes have failed- presented an elegant dignified Indian image that is refreshing and lovely – with no bling!

  25. grozny at | | Reply

    I totally agree with you Payal. A plain yellow would have been perfect.

  26. Priti at | | Reply

    Love love love the floral print…she totally stands out…
    @Siddarth….I really dont think she would have looked better in a blingy saree…some people would have jumped on her for not being ‘age-appropriate’.’

  27. Indian Girl at | | Reply

    I wish I’d age as well as her ! I love the print and the blue / yellow combo. Very spring , very light ! LOVE !

  28. peechu at | | Reply

    sharmila tagore looks beautifula and definitely holds her own among the other women. just a random thought i had, if aishwarya rai had appeared on the jury (or anywhere at Cannes) wearing what the others have worn (except MAYBE the woman on the extreme right) she would’ve been bashed to no end..haha. its funny i associate Cannes with aishwarya!

  29. Anu* at | | Reply

    I have to agree that printed is more summery and fresh than plain. I would have chosen a better combo than that oh-so-Victorian color combo.

    But, at the end of the day, fashion is not about the individual pieces worn but the ‘look’ that the person sports — and BOY DOES SHE ROCK IT!!

    now she is true INDIAN beauty! wow…simple, elegant dignified!

  31. Lalitha at | | Reply

    The dimples are intact, the yellow printed saree is simply smashing, and she has (by leaps and bounds) outshined the other jury members!!!

  32. worship_elle at | | Reply

    aish isals at Cannes!! at the Up premiere

  33. nefertiti at | | Reply

    I like the 2 strings of pearls on her. A closeup pic that shows her earrings?

  34. pdaervo at | | Reply

    I seem to be the only obw who actually agrees with you P&P :) I think the print takes away from the formality
    She does looke lovely though…and are all of the judge women this year? Because that would be awesome (sorry Siddarth)

  35. G at | | Reply

    Y hasn’t anyone mentioned her double layered pearls.
    She looks great. Totally elegant & classic

  36. Shruti at | | Reply

    I wish she had gone with something..I dunno, fancier. Although, I like how she went with a nice, mild, summery colour :)

  37. Anu141 at | | Reply

    Wow.. she looks stunning. I agree with the “printed” chiffon being a good choice. Its a nice unexpected twist in this day and age of extremes (all too plain or too bling). I like that she is wearing multiple pieces (watch, necklace & earring) but the whole ensemble works well together because everything is delicate. I give her full marks for following her own style mantra and working it with confidence :-)

    Boring saree, but she’s totally working it!!
    Who’s the lady in the center? She has come turned out like she’s jus out for groceries or somethin…

  43. diptiN at | | Reply

    her hair, make up, accessorie are great, she looks OK, but with all the beautiful sarees we have, why chose one so boring, the color does not do anything for her.

  44. K at | | Reply

    She looks good, as usual. It doesn’t seem like she’s made a concentrated effort to look extra special or to please anybody at Cannes. And that’s fine. Every international event should not be looked by us like a stage to elevate ourselves. I like that Sharmila looks grounded (as did Nandita Das)…. not that there’s anything wrong with anyone who dresses up.

  45. mj at | | Reply

    stunning!! this is what every 60 year should wear and look like unless you are reed thin and can carry off western clothes. she looks tlike the royalty she married into. if any of you have had any interaction at all with old royals, you’d know this is the way to do it..ala maharani gayatri devi!! love love lovee!!!

  46. brenda at | | Reply

    @mj …i agree with you. she does look like royalty. beautifully done.

  47. Humaira at | | Reply

    I love it. Very elegant and classy.

    @Ratan & FPDP: I think what Ratan meant was that Soha Ali Khan has the genes and grace to pull it off if she chose to dress better and put more understated effort into it.

  48. Sassy_girl at | | Reply

    she is so Classy.elegant ,royal ..she carries her self in really beautiful manner and her make up is so age appropriate ..

  49. Anita at | | Reply

    plain chiffon would have looked tacky due to being too plain. I love printed chiffons in pastels with pearls ( like somone above mentioned – maharani gayatri devi’s signature style).

  50. herdisnot at | | Reply

    Looks lovely. A nice afternoon wear with blush wine and light hors d’oeuvres. I like the lightness of it all. Everything well done, hair, jewelry, make up..Too bad she messed up the beautiful mint green benaras with bad accessories. This is pic perfect.

  51. Anu at | | Reply

    she’s the oldest in the last pic, but she’s the only one whose got the poise and elegance right…the style is simple but unique :-)

    Considering what the other ladies in that picture wore, I prefer Tagore sari !! Jai Hind!!
