    i do like her sari, the color is gorgeous, especially for a day event. the jewelry, not so much. pearls would’ve looked lovely on this sari. or if she wanted to avoid pearls because she wore them earlier, then i would recommend 14k yellow gold with a diamond-ruby combination of some sort.

    better than the yellow saree, but not great. For the day events I would like to see her in a colorful chiffon saree, and a better fitting blouse.

    Sari is nice, but I HATE the blouse. It looks like one of those cheap cotton ones that you’re meant to mix and match with your sari collection, i.e. it is not a part of the actual sari. The simple plain cotton does not go at all with the rick silkiness of the sari itself. Lovely sari ruined by yucky blouse

    I love Sharmila and she looks elegant. But that jewelry is too much for such an ordinary looking sari and the blouse is ill-fitting. I guess I expected more from her.

    Love her simple elegance ….i keep saying that again and again…but cant stop myself!!

    She has dressed up well for her age but this international event asks for something grand.Those Jewellery looks very cheap.Anyways, I hate those black metal jewelleries.I’m sure she hasn’t consulted any designer for this. Light colored chiffon sarees with thread work (kashmiri,lucknowi or parsi work) would have been perfect for her.

    lovely! that shade of pale mint is gorgeous on her, complemented by a beautiful smile.

    Like I said in the other Sharmila post, she looks good as usual and hasn’t made a ‘special’ effort at Cannes just to give it or herself importance. you are who you are!

    Without foccussing on minor petty details, I believe overall she looks elegant, dignified and comfortable in what she is wearing….Being fashionable also means comfortable, unlike ash whose bodice seems to be killing her and causing all that armpit buldge….

    Love the saree and the necklace – has a yin and yang thing going there. The blouse is very ill-fitting, seems she is going for comfort than fit. She continues to look classy though. Love the colour.

    Decent Saree..ugly blouse…cuuuute dimples! :)

    (Tangent topic) Soha Ali does look like her mom. Soha also sticks to the same hairstyle as her mom.

    I’m sort of in love with that saree guys o_o …really
    I LOVE the pattern and ohhhh, I want!
    I love the red with the green (it brings out the pink accent) but I think the STYLE of the jewelry doesn’t really match the style of the saree
    …and the blouse is sort of fugly and uninspired

    the jewellery looks much nicer in the latter few photos, though i wish she’d worn some other piece. her other daughter is a jewellery designer, i expected more in that department!

    oh my god…she’s beautiful. Love the sari, the jewelry, She looks impeccable man. She’s like the classiest woman after Waheeda Rahman’s generation.

    Ditto to everything on pdaervo’s comment. I think the saree is very very beautiful – want it!

    I love the way she looks, blouse could be better fitted but i am pleasantly surprised that she wore wedges :-) a smart touch!

  20. Shruti at | | Reply

    Definitely like this look a lot better than the first yellow saree one. The blouse isn’t that great but I just love that green on her! She looks lovely :)

    Hi guys…I stopped posting comments here but I just had to let you guys know that Shobha De wrote about your website on her blog:

    Beautiful Saree…Jewelry not worthy of a nawab. Hair, a distraction. Could have skipped necklace, but worn a heavy ruby/diamond earring and finger ring. Drawn back hair in a chignon. Footwear, awful. Just because she is Sharmila, it does not look bad. But overall grade D for ruining a perfect saree. D- for not being a begum

    oh my! she is so graceful! love everything about her! her hairstyle reminds me of Madhuri!:)

    Her blouse doesn’t fit her that well (you can see it in the 3rd picture). Other than that, she looks GREAT!

  28. ar00j at | | Reply

    i don’t enjoy her choice of shoes. BUT i am in LOVE with that necklace =)! and its def a better appearance than the yellow floral sar!

  29. priya at | | Reply

    Is she wearing a Uppada sari?The sari looks great.

  30. Reshma at | | Reply

    Timeless beauty indeed!

  31. hobbes at | | Reply

    The sari is gorgeous – Priya I think its either an upada or an Ahmedabadi. I think it’s perfect for the day and for her age. And I love the fact that she’s gone traditional – it’s a refreshing change from everyone wearing kaamwala designer saris. The jewelry matches well tho its not to my taste and the blouse looks a little loose. But overall effect is very classy.

    i know i saw that too…she used 2 talk abt how freida doesnt need to wear a saree cuz shes an international star now lol kinda like some of the discussions that used to go on here…i wonder what other celebs read this blog….

    @k= I follow shobha’s blog sometimes, however can’t find where she mentions high heel confidential, where did u read abt it?

    @ chuck bass is hot, k=

    i would expect more celebrities to look at it. isnt that how the new rules and regulations about posting comments came about, because one of them didn’t like what was being said and threatened a citation or something? (correct me if i’m wrong PnP).

    k=, hope you resume commenting, it’s always good to know what people think, especially since you were a regular.

    i honestly LOVE it
    the combination of the sari with the antique jewelry
    according to me she knocked it out of the park

    A heavy sari with a “statement kundan necklace”? You are obviously confusing her with Rekha.

    Deewani- the HHC comment appears at the very end of her 12th May post about Rahul G.
    I like how Sharmila Tagore looks so charming in the green saree, but wish she’d upped the glamour a notch or two (think Helen Mirren, who’s also the same age)

  42. pdaervo at | | Reply

    …Helen Mirren is ageless :/
    I mean have you SEEN her in a bikini?!

  43. Nepali at | | Reply

    I love the sari and the kangan(the bracelet/cuff/bangle).

    Sharmila–pls bring out the baubles from the palace!!!! Where are they??? Pls put them on!!

  45. Ratan at | | Reply

    Gorgeous & elegant as always!! Love the saree, and her jewelry is alright, altho I do wish she had paired a multi-string crystal- cut necklace of plain rubies, would’ve looked far better!! However, I don’t think a heavy trad saree with kundan jewelry is really required for a day event – especially since Sharmila is rarely seen going so overboard, Cannes or not!! And our trad Indian sarees & jewelry do tend to give off a heavy, formal look, more suited to night events. So in all, I think her look is perfect, minus the ill fitting blouse.

  46. Nikita at | | Reply

    Brilliant! Elegant. She is graceful and fabulous. Never mind her slightly ill fitting blouse – but it matches perfect with the sari and looks great. Well done.

  47. bubs at | | Reply

    Saree is very age appropriate but the jewelery and shoes are BAD! Also whats wrong with the blouse? it looks to be the same material as her saree, what do people expect that at her age she’ll be wearing a bikini blouse or something?!!

  48. D Chaudhury at | | Reply

    Shoes people! Why is she wearing those shoes with such an elegant sari? I agree on the blouse, but she could have worn something other than those cork heeled platform soles.

  49. red at | | Reply

    on a second note ,she wore this saree earlier also, in some pre-Mumbai Marathon event,but with a better jewellery.

    To me she looks like ONE MILLION DOLLARS ! Awesome poise, awesome confidence and lovely clothes.

  53. Mojo at | | Reply

    I htink she looks elegant and timeless. going designer is not always the ways. Remember Jaya bacchan’s green colored fiasco last year at Cannes.She looked like a fool. I agree a sleeveless blouse would have looked better, but she is 60+.

  54. Monika at | | Reply

    I really like how shes done it here, so elegant and tasteful…

    then that wouldnt be her na? it would be rekha. i love that she isnt looking as paralysed and shiny as rekha does.

    She always looks so classy and elegant, and she carries herself soo well. When you can do that, fashion doesn’t really matter…you always look good!

    The blouse should have been padded, like she wore in An evening in Paris.
