    She is losing the plot.. trying too bloody hard… Chill girl, every day doesnt have to be fancy dress up! The hair looks like an owl landed on her head and flew off… Sonam tried too hard to dress to impress.. to make a statement.. normal isnt bad u know!

          1. Yasmine at |

            hehehe i think theres always something nice to say, each piece she’s wearing can be nice separately. luckily this is just the right place for that: critic. because this is a public figure, an actress notably, and has chosen to put herself out there and she’s working very hard for this much attention ya know

    I like the shirt. I like the pants too. The only thing I don’t like is where the ‘girls’ are at. I mean, halfway down your chest when you’re in your 20s? Tut, tut.

    1. FOB at | | Reply

      Not really halfway down considering the pants are so high up. They’d have looked fine had she been wearing a regular/low-cut pair of jeans.

      @ Tongue in Chic: no offense, but this is a fashion blog, not a ‘make catty comments about various parts of stars anatomies’ blog

      Criticizing Sonam’s outfit? Understandable. Targeting the poor girl’s supposedly sagging chest? Not kosher.

      Again, sorry if I offended you

      1. SS at | | Reply

        No offense CM…but that IS fashion sense..wearing a good bra IS fashion sense….now if someone said ‘her fingers have bad skin..or her eyes are too small’ or something like that…thats criticizing something not related to fashions…but comments abt how the lack of a good bra is making her chest look bad…totally acceptable….( and no offence but a lot of times I actually find your comments have a ‘tone’ to them …and are catty twds other bloggers….you do know that ppl have a right to their opinion right? )

      2. Tongue in Chic at | | Reply

        @ Chocolate Martini:
        None taken. :)
        I have to say I completely disagree with you though. Bad support ruins fantastic outfits. I need hardly point out that this is what I was implying.
        Good innerwear is essential to your look, and certainly comment-worthy on a fashion blog.

          totally agree tongue in chic

      3. Anu at | | Reply

        Sorry, but what’s not kosher? Commenting on lingerie? Seriously?! This is a fashion blog .. of course lingerie is fair game.

        1. Chocolate Martini at | | Reply

          just to clarify: I was not talking about her criticizing the lingerie. Maybe I misunderstood tongue in chic’s comment but there was no mention of lingerie just how her ‘girls’ are half way down her chest although she’s only in her 20’s. To me that sounded more like a comment on her natural anatomy than her choice of bra.

          Again, I might have misinterpreted the comment and if I did, I’m sorry.

          @ SS: any ‘tone’ your getting is completely unintended. On my comment to tongue in chic I apologized AND said that I did not intend any offense. I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but that’s the point: I am entitled to my own opinion as well and that opinion includes disagreeing with other’s opinions. If you want to disagree with me, that’s YOUR opinion and you are welcome to it.

          1. Anu at |

            I think its pretty obvious she was talking about lingerie…I mean, you don’t have to explicitly spell out EVERYTHING, do you? That would be so clinical. :)

            And I kind of agree with ‘SS’ about the ‘tone’. Please don’t take this the wrong way, but some of your comments directed at others opinions can be a little unnecessarily grating. This is a fashion blog, and a little bit of playful exaggeration never hurt anyone. Lets all just take it easy. :)

    i actually like it waist up and waist down but separately, not together.
    she has the long legs to carry off the high pants and brogues. as for the blouse it’s nice although i would never wear it myself.

      exactly the same thought here! every time she has these shoes on, it reminds me of R.K.; for me its the song ‘mere joota hai….. the top is nice but the bottom is not; coz of the shoes maybe.

  13. desigirl at | | Reply

    there’s not one bit of her outfit that I like. even the top…. makes her look so saggy. blouse, pants, shoes, hair… everything. total disaster.

  14. ants at | | Reply

    I am getting really bored of her… Sad but true… She really is trying toooo hard.. I think she should just chill and dress like a normal young kid for a change, sans the make up and the ‘i have to have a new hairstyle everytime i step out’ look.

    1. HHC Fan at | | Reply

      If someone dresses like a normal kid then she is boring and uninteresting, if someone dresses differrently it is “trying too hard”, if someone dresses in ethnic wear always it’s ‘behenji”. What can the girls in Bollywood do to satisfy people especially when these girls have to make so many public appearances?

        OMG u said it. I feel the same way. She looks alright to me. I don’t understand the trying too hard part too. I think she dresses that way because she likes to be trendy.

      3. Jazz at | | Reply

        No, its just that we’re telling her to just relax and stop trying to be EDGY or whatever ALL.THE.TIME… We appreciate the effort, but everytime you dress like this, it seems like you’re screaming “LOOK! Im eccentric!”
        Then it gets annoying.

        1. Chocolate Martini at | | Reply

          @ Jazz: since when is a balloon sleeved shirt and a pair of brogues ‘eccentric’ . She’s just on-trend, I wish people wouldnt be so melodramatic and criticize EVERYTHING

          @ HHC fan: totally agree

          1. Jazz at |

            The shirt may not be eccentric by itself,thus the ‘waist up she looks good’ I guess ;-) But hey, u pair it with those shoes + those pants (certainly not conventional, right?? Not conventional = eccentric, right?? ) :P

          2. Chocolate Martini at |

            @ jazz: actual both Balloon sleeves and brogues are on trend in western runways right now, so it’s not too unconventional in fact its the opposite: she’s actually following the fashion trends for the moment.

            Also, unconventional is just uncommon (surely given the usual state of B’wood fashion, her being unconventional by B’wood norms is a GOOD thing :P), while eccentric is more odd or radical :) (Sorry for sounding like a dictionary)
            BTW: incase you were getting a ’tone’ from my comments, I did not intend to be insulting or snarky, no offense :)

          Agree, marky. It’s also ridiculous when some people include this argument of —oh we all know that they can afford it as though that makes it okay for them to show up in WTHey clothes or faux designer stuff. Even if u don’t have it in you, just hire a stylist.

    2. Amber at | | Reply

      Omgosh, I agree, ANTS!
      It’s getting so annoying now- she has to have new and ‘different’ clothes, new hairstyles, tons of makeup and what not each time I see her pictures. There’s nothing spontaneous about her look anymore.. especially after that whole Audi show debacle, like girl, chill. Your life isn’t some fashion show, dress normal and your age.

    Horrible pants. I guess a nice pair of fitted, mid-waist jeans/trousers would be gorgeous.

  16. ash at | | Reply

    I know what everyone means by the trying too hard comments – she really,really wants to be seen as ‘high fashion’ , and while shes got the height and quirky beauty to pull it off, shes certainly no Kate moss who makes it seem effortless.

    1. Chocolate Martini at | | Reply

      umm..why must people compare Sonam to international super models all the time? Relax guys! this isnt a contest!!and atleast she’s never been guilty of popularizing anorexia

        @ Chocolate Martini: You hit the nail right on the head – it’s the “build ’em up and then tear ’em down” syndrome. Everyone gets it wrong sometimes (Kate Moss does it pretty often actually :p).

    looove the brogues, separately not with the rest fo the ensemble…think they would b great with a more girly look. PnP and all u readers, any suggestions on how to do brogues…I have 2 pairs sitting in my closet…and dying to wear them the right way

    I LOVE that Stella McCartney organza silk blouse!!!!!

    …and I think she pulls it off quite well! As for the rest of the look, I think she pulled that off well too. (Maybe low waisted pants might have been a tad better though.

    Ahh so much HATING going on here. Chill guys!

    Love the look from waist upwards, not too fond of the pants and the shoes though. Saying that, Kudos to her for trying and making it work. The girl has style..

  20. Chocolate Martini at | | Reply

    I wish people would stop judging the poor girl so harshly: because that’s all she really is, a girl who is trying to live up to the media-given image of fashionista because it is her only claim to fame considering that both her movies have flopped. Sure it’s contrived, but its her only claim to fame and she IS in the fame game.

    All of this judging and scorn is starting to get a little ugly. I think most people take each of her outfits too personally because they are each trying to prove a point through her, either that Sonam is on par with international fashionistas and that India is capable of producing people whose style can be appreciated globally or that Sonam has no clue when it comes to the international fashion scene and that Indian fashion scene has a long, long way to go before it reaches there

    Either way, even if she is a little wannabe, she’s just a fun change from the rest of the Manish and Tarun addicts on this site and I’ll take her very perosnal (if sometimes naive and flawed) approach to fashion over the cold, impersonal, generically perfect, stylist-manufactured fashion sense of Frieda and her hollywood starlet ilk

    1. KS at | | Reply

      Though i completely agree with your view, i dont think she is a wannabe at all!She is young girl who enjoys fashion and at times tries hard but she isnt a wannabe. There is a thin line between trying hard and being a wannabe, there is, but where exactly it is drawn i dont know :).

    I completely agree with P&P’s assessment. She looks gorgeous top half….not so much waist down. Like the shirt and the face & hair. But the pants and shoes…not working. And I am sure she looked stunning face to face….I hear that a lot about this girl when she goes wrong with her clothes!

    saw pics of the event and i must say she looks so very different from the other ladies. and that for me is the name of the game. she is one/many step ahead of the others in fashion and style. contrived or not.
    and when you see her standing next to the others you can tell she’s class apart. so not run of the mill and just for that i give her full marks.

    I personally dont like harem pants and bubble/balloon sleeves.
    She is dresses up like old ladies dress up in UK or US.
    She thinks dressing up latest makes you fashionista and whether it suits you or not.
    Some one here said ‘confidence ‘ ,i think its more of proud…Kareena and sonam give same looks.. like no one can beat them.

  34. pdaervo at | | Reply

    I feel like a lot of people are taking this a bit TOO seriously. Some of the comments are starting to sound a little melodramatic and, well, fiilmy.
    She tired to look parisian-chic, she ended up looking like a bit of a mess. It’s fixable. I appreciate Sonam for trying, but (excuse the comparison) someone like Diane Kruger could have pulled it off. It’s all in the expression- the vibe- the confidence.
    Sonam is a little ungraceful for the look she often tries to pull off- but she has time.

        That is exactly what came to my mind when I saw this. Diane Kruger would have pulled it off and she has done these kind of looks. Sonam tried something new but came off looking a mess. That is all it is.

    She is certainly making an extra attempt for the “design” on the clutch to be seen. Don’t know how it goes with the entire outfit. Ah well, she is the fashionista here..I will just shut up :)

    balloon shirt and some pants…do NOT look like “trying too hard” from any angle. some people are just being too harsh on the girl.
    She wears what she likes to wear.

    Anyways, I agree with whatever PnP said, top half is good. I don’t like the clutch with this look.

    Don’t be hatin’, people. She looks alright. How did this wannabe/tries-too-hard image crop up? She has an effortless style and grace for her age and experience. And she manages to look good nearly all the time.

    and the clutch is not going together with this look AT ALL..just doesnt fit

    she looks different, interesting. On her it looks good, not crazy about her hair.

  42. Sharin at | | Reply

    Honestly people always hate others that have been put on a pedastal. It’s not Sonam’s fault that she has the “fashionista” tag attached to her nor is it like Aishwarya’s fault that she has a beauty label attached to her. We always judge these guys harder when they have some sort of label attached to them and it’s really no fault of their own.

    I like this look of Sonam’s but I think it’s better suited for “once in a while”. Most of her events lately she’s had a twist on classics thing going on.. very prim and proper. Would love to see her more boho chic.. I think it would do her good to look a little more youthful as that is something that she has going for her as opposed to other actresses…and she won’t have it for long so might as well rock it now!

          The comments that did get unapproved were the ones where posters were getting disrespectful/offensive towards each other.

  52. Lori at | | Reply

    I can’t believe those of you who approved of this outfit. She looks terrible. The top’s nice but the pants and the shoes ruin it. I am disappointed because I hold her to pretty high standards compared to others. To those of you who were making comments on her chest being low or whatever, hello, are you blind, the pants waist is high. Your tits would look saggy too if you pulled your pants/skirt that high. And let’s not forget she’s normally got less than ideal posture- that can also give the illusion of sagging. I just realized those are hunting pants. She’s missing the frock, a shotgun and a little dog lololol.
