    T-e-r-r-i-b-l-e. Who’s (ugly) curtain was stolen to make this. She doesn’t even display the confidence necessary to pull this off.

      LOL !!!!! Hillarious !!
      I think the fabric print is nice and different but surely not suitable as a kaftan..
      but kudos to shoba for looking confident in it.

      She went to a south indian wedding, at lunch some sambar fell on her saree and she had to change. Before the hosts could offer her a saree, she marches into the kitchen, grabs a banana leaf and walks out jubilant, as the crowd stares on open-mouthed! Talk about improvisation!

    You girls don’t wanna be in the bad (nasty) books of Mrs. De right? fair enough. Her audacious lashings aren’t for the faint hearted :D

    To me, this is real, bloody bad.

    1. PCritic at | | Reply

      That was exactly my first thought too…P&P dont want to upset Ms De!

      You guys want us to believe that YOU actually LIKE this outfit??? Its a big printed sack. For god’s sake, you cant see the woman’s arms – its a big WTHEYYY!!!

        And people accuse you of being biased towards Sonam :P

        Love how you proved them wrong PnP :D

      Everyone has a right to their own opinion, stop bashing P&P.

      I personally don’t like the dress either but that doesn’t mean we make others hate it as well. Let’s just agree to disagree.

    This print might work on a quirky umbrella or a gazebo but as a garment its plain awful.. and those accessories look like plastic tassles. This is what a failed project runway outfit looks like.

    1. Leanne at | | Reply

      I never thought, it would look fabulous as an umbrella on a summer beach.

  9. Sunanda at | | Reply

    Plain ol’ weird! She looks double her actual size!

  10. Preethi at | | Reply

    Missy, I think you are absolutely right! :-D
    Horrible dress, but I guess they have to face her bitchy comments if they say anything bad

    1. aparna at | | Reply

      hahaha that was my initial thought too, because this looks like a 4 year old’s halloween costume gone bad. WTHEYY for sure!!!

  11. beezee at | | Reply

    looks like a tent to me.

  12. beezee at | | Reply

    looks like a tent in the amazon jungle .

  13. monika at | | Reply

    it’s awful……the print may have worked in a dress avatar maybe…..but as a kaftan,it looks like a curtain.
    Drooling over neck necklace though! ow awesome is that!!

  14. Gayatri at | | Reply

    Yipes! This woman is usually well dressed – what went wrong here? Table cloth, shower curtain, bed-sheet – which one of these did she grab?

  15. Trisha at | | Reply

    She looks like a paan..

    1. Myla at | | Reply

      LOL! :)

  16. SS at | | Reply

    OMG..are you kidding P&P….u surely are…its a tent!! where is her right hand? ..WTHEYYY for me…looks like a costume …for a stage show….where she plays a banana tree!

  17. Venus at | | Reply

    where did the right hand go ? makes the dress look very incomplete…i’m surprised u guys liked it…its a very badly made dress

  18. Bearblu at | | Reply

    Talk about an ass-kissing! This dress is terrible and yet, the gals like it.

  19. dn at | | Reply

    The print and colour are good, but seriously, who walks out of the house like this????

  20. MSR at | | Reply

    what on the earth was S.De thinking when she chose this…she is the one to criticize every one and she ended up wearing such tacky outfit.

  21. frieda at | | Reply

    suck up.

  22. carrotswithlime at | | Reply

    She looks hideous. For someone who is so critical of others, Ms. De surely doesn’t carry a mirror for herself.

    I am sorry P&P
    i under any circumstance CANNOT believe that you guys ‘like’ this outfit form any angle.
    its sad if all this starts happening on this blog…cause thats the one difference i thought this blog had.

  27. Faiza at | | Reply

    might as well wear a curtain

  28. blmrlt1102 at | | Reply

    Awful. Overall.

  29. Shubha at | | Reply

    Its strange to see this outfit on Ms. De who used to criticise people for wearing Salwar Kameezs instead of Saris because she felt that they looked like tents.

    She had once written a long diatribe in TOI against people who did not wear the sensuous Sari and opted for Salwar Kameezs because it hid their imperfect bodies yada yada yada…

    WTHey for me….

    1. GK at | | Reply

      Yes, I remember that article, @Shubha! and I also remember getting pissed – how long had it been that Ms De had caught a local in the morning rush? Or just had an ordinary, busy life where the sari was sooo impractical as compared to the less-fussy salwar kameez? Step out of your little ivory tower, Ms De…..

      1. kasthuri at | | Reply

        I know what u mean by saree being impractical…but i know tons of women who live in sarees and prefer it more than suit (i heard some say it is airy in the right places i.e like a skirt on the legs and open waist)..
        So we cannot just say saree is impractical..its probably that we are just not used it…

        1. GK at | | Reply

          Sure, there are thousands of women who live in sarees and swear by it – but the article was critical of middle-class women who had switched to salwars. You should not be critical of people who do not have access to the same resources that you do. How many working women have the time, energy or money to work on their bodies and sizzle in a saree? So, if they find it easier to ‘hide’ in a salwar kameez, so what?
          Sorry, will now get off my soap-box… :-)

    fit for the forest outing

  35. ria at | | Reply

    i know the 80’s were primetime for her, but, she needs to move out of that time zone.

    she’s so passe, i am surprised people think she is still relevant enough to be scared of. a pulp fiction author is hardly qualified to critique others’ dressing. especially, one that is dressed like this!

  36. Apeksha at | | Reply

    OMG!OMG!!! my eyes!!!who made this?and she bought it? was it gifted?OMG!!!

  37. Zee at | | Reply

    I am at sea as what to love here ?? The Banana leaf bean bag??
    It looks like she grabbed the bed sheets from a themed resort hotel room, cut a hole through it and put it on.
    Well, after giving it some thought, are you guys expecting an invite from Sobha/her social circle to some fab social do?
    Cuz the article borders on buttering…..

  38. Myla at | | Reply

    Yes, but imagine if Amrita Rao had worn it, would you have left it at ‘overwhelming’ :)

  39. SS at | | Reply

    even if this was a maternity dress… this is possibly the most hideous outfit to date! some crazy joke in the name of fashion!

  40. lemon at | | Reply

    gosh guys..really? i am trying to see what ur seeing…but no, its still ugly. I mean its like a banana tree is slowly swallowing her up, its already got her right arm.

  41. suchi at | | Reply

    hmm i am in the minority but i actually like this on her. for once she is looking lovely. i just wish it was tailored properly that her arm was actually visible.
