In Masaba

139

With established designers hogging attention, it is really nice to see the youn’uns supporting upcoming ones. Case in point, Sonam Kapoor inaugurating Masaba Gupta’s flagship store wearing one of Masaba’s saris. We love the sari and the jewellery.

P.S. Sonam isn’t the first. Let’s not forget Deepika in Nimirta Lalwani and Bipasha/Deepika/Kareena in Armaan by Sunaina Puri.

    • Ya…it gives me a chameli vibe… It cld have been a lot nicer. I mean, make up is a ok and sonam is beautiful to begin with.Just the saree could have been worn better with a better blouse. There is too much waist exposure and the elegance and grace that a saree brings is missing. Its almost like a white girl wearing a saree.

  4. ugly sari… i don’t know much about fashion trends or labels but this looks crass to me. we get quirky but what is with the hideous orange border which looks so out of place? the bottom half of the sari and the rest of it are 2 different things that should have never been put together. The blouse..tcchh. Hate the lip colour and the earrings look out of place too.

  6. I don’t like the saree one bit, especially on Sonam. The hair, the makeup, the big red bindi..everything is just no happening! The orange border, the big jhumkas, the red nailpaint and the ill fitted puffy sleeved blouse is puke worthy.

    I’d like it better if she had a pleated drape and open hair, fresh make-up minus the bindi.

  7. I love the saree but hate the way the tummy is exposed. Why can’t they pleat the pallu somewhat so that you get a glimpse rtaher than the whole thing????

  8. “We love the sari and the jewellery. ”
    Hey Pnp, we get ur intended pun !!! Yes, luv the saree and jewellery, only not liking the way it is been worn around this time…Its not slutty, me thinks this needs much more of attitude besides her usual perkiness to carry this style….
    That aside, did she change her hair color?? Good God, one Aish is enuff :)

  9. if only sonam had chosen to be a fashion model rather than an actor, indian fashion could’ve had its firts super model. she can really transform herself with every look. and she can lend character to the clothes she wears too. love the blouse, the saree, the earrings;basically everything about this look.

    • Indian fashion already had their first supermodel(s) in the form of Mehr Jessia, Madhu Sapre, Ujjwala Raut and Anna Bredmeyer. Anyone whose followed it for a while would know that. Plus, some more topmodels such as Bhawna Sharma and Sheetal Mallar emerged. Currently, Sonam as a model doesn’t hold a candle to them. When she becomes half as spunky as Bhawna then maybe, we can talk.

  10. I hav no words. I don hate Sonam.. I love Masaba’s creations for dat matter.but dis one is plain tacky..Ugh…ly!
    n sonam cud hav kept it simple n gone easy on the tan, jewellary, big bindi, or dat ‘chameli’ pose, untied hair. I see so many things going wrong here.. the blouse is d tackiest! wat was she tryin’ to do.. show off her brand new trimmed abs???
    The sheer pallu is like ‘jale pe namak’. My eyes r hurting..
    I did look at the pics for like 5-6 times.. jus to spot one gud thing abt this look. but no

    On the other hand.. Masaba looks way better. always loved her orange pumps. n the neck piece. though li’ll choking.. it looks naicee… I like

  11. hmm…but I completely seem to hate this look on Sonam. She doesnt look classy at all. The saree is good but the way she wore it is ‘yikes’.

    • Yeah exactly
      I wish she had pleated the pallu and safety pinned it. This just looks so messy.
      But I love the bindi and the earrings! GORGEOUS.

  12. This is NOT working. That is a sari??? Looks like an amateurish kiddie project…and Sonam looks like she was styled along the lines of Kareena from Chameli…eeks :O

  13. I love the saree and the jewellery!!! And sonam looks fabulous! Though i think she needs to stop loosing weight..Its going to make her look gaunt soon!

  14. On another note, how come you have nothing to say abt the ridiculous jumpsuit on Masaba herself…she has such broad shoulders and opted for that?? Seriously, Deepika’s much attacked casual style is 10x better than the “designer’s” look…lol

  15. What a funky saree – I’d wear it in a flash. Theres shades of Satya paul but even quirkier? Its certainly an aquired taste and not everybody will like it but Sonams looking pretty and fresh in it, and her hairdos looking great!

  16. What’s the point of this sari? I just never get the point of sheer see-through ones. And Sonam is too thin for my liking now :-/ What happened to love for some nice curves.

  17. Its a really pretty sari but I dont know what it is that makes me feel like Sonam cant pull it off. I think its the lack of hips. It jus doesnt look good on her.

  18. that ash n orange combination is so cute! n the sari is so contemporary.. sonam looks good with the jewellery n the red tip but wish she wore the sari properly…that much of skin is actually kinda jarring..but then loves the way she pulled it off..this is what must b called spontaneity lol

  19. The saree is interesting(may be)…but i think sonal has a very weird posture..and drape for the saree..she could have carried it off well but i dont know something is really weirs about the way shes posing!!

  20. The problem I found with this look is that its so costume like.Seems like she’s all dressed up for a retro theme party .Plus i always feel that she’s got the attitude like a little girl ,its like hey i ve got a new dress look at it ..Thats just i feel

  21. i want to like it but can’t …. the sheer pallu, the horrible blouse, the too thin frame with strange pose ….. just not working

    …. are all designers going MM way with colour block borders in anything and everything ? Let this fad die soon

  22. The saree is quirky alright, but the quirkiness does not translate into good design. It’s a pain on the eyes. Something is off with Sonam’s styling and pose, looks like she’s trying to imitate certain Ms.D. Seriously whatever happened to individuality?? She looks stick thin and jutting her assets. What works on D may not work on Sonam.

  23. Love the saree, the jewllery, and the bindi, but Sonam can’t carry it off. She, along with the lovely Shruti Haasan, look like they are off to a costume party rather than wearing a garment worn by the majority of their country women everyday.

    They are probably uncomfortable in sarees (and look it) but they really want to be seen as looking like they can pull off any look. Unfortunately, their Western ramp model stiffness doesn’t work with the sensuousness of a saree.

    Sonakshi Sinha has a better body language to carry off edgy and traditional, though her instinct for putting together outfits is weaker than Sonam’s.

  24. I usually love Masaba but this look falls flat. Maybe Neena Gupta could’ve carried it far better. I think you need to be curvier for this and Sonam looks so so skinny. Masaba herself looks really good though. It should’ve been such a good combination, fab designer and fab actress but somehow didn’t work this time.Maybe next time?

  25. Really?? you like this? hmmmm……i cannot believe this…this must be a joke or something…sonam must be in character for some movie where she’s playing fisherwoman
    the hair, orange binidi and the saree draping and most of all her posture all suck big time!!

  26. the sari could be interesting had the pallu been pleated a little…but with it being completely open and so see through it is really tacky to me
    i dont understand why other celebs get called out for wearing semi-sheer saris but here this is completely sheer/non-existent
    to top it off the teeny blouse?!

    i will say that i do like the bindi and the earrings

  27. Sonam does not have the figure to carry off a sari in this material. Western clothes, yes. This sari? No. Maybe a silk one or thicker sari? Perhaps. She looks too thin and the sari is anything but gorgeous.

  28. Awkward draping and posturing really kill an otherwise decent look for me. I wouldn’t have minded the sheer saree if she draped it properly but oh god, that is a disaster topped off with an equally bad blouse (save the puffiness on the shoulders – that I like). Love the bindi and the earrings but hate, hate, hate the red nails. Red and orange are not complementary, EVER. I think someone like Neena Gupta or Sonakshi Sinha would have rocked this look.

  29. Is Sonam the new Aishwarya? Haha, just said it by looking at the number of comments and mixed reactions lol ;) btw she looks really nice :)

  30. i honestly don’t understand why every one is going ga ga over this look! i looked and re-looked at the pictures. and my opinion is still the same. i think the sari is incredibly cute. i’d love to own it. although, i dont think the ‘sexy’ blouse meshes well with the fun and funky sari.
    Sonam looks terrible. I usually heart her! but i hate the hair to begin with. she looks too skinny because of it. neck up she looks like a starved village lady. all she needs is a pot on her head.
    the big (begali?) bindi is too traditional for the sari!

  31. I really do think she looks chameli like. I wish the pallu wasn’t so transparent. I get quirky but this is just off. Ohh and really, really don’t like the blouse.

  32. I love this look on Sonam. Everything works for her – the bright bit of orange, the big bindi, the jewellery & the hair.

    That said, I’ve never been a fan of saris that are sheer or draped to expose so much skin. I prefer a more elegant draping. But Sonam seems to carry it off. On anyone else, it might have looked vulgar, and I would have hated it. But I actually like it on Sonam.

  33. The only thing that’s working here is the makeup, hair and earrings! I like the blouse too but the sari itself is not working at all!!!! The pallu is just too tacky!

  34. i think masabas sarees are the only ones that actually look like they were made after a lot of thought.i dont particularly care for the way sonam has draped the saree but i love the way masaba comes up with interesting mixtures of colors,textures and designs.most othr designers jus put lots of bling on their sarees and charge obscene amounts for their uninspired ,blingy sarees ,anaralis etc.

  35. Yeah, I like the saree and the jewellery as well, PnP :) But just can’t bring myself to like how sonam is wearing it. This is not quirky, this is not fun! A BIG thumb down!

  36. LOVE THIS LOOK!! Sonam should have been a supermodel! She is beautiful and edgy! LOVE this sari and I like how her stylist has fused the traditional bindi in an orange with the sari… Very very new world quirky!
    This is a whole new take on the sari… Tired of Sabya cashing in on traditional sari work and design which has been in India since the beginning of the sari and even more tired of Manish Malhotra cashing in on blinged up Sabya style haha.

  37. Is it only me who felt that Sonam looked a LOT like Sonali Bendre?! (Though Sonali wouldn’t be caught dead in a rag like that!)
    At first look, I had difficulty believing it was Sonam.
    Bad hair, bad dress, bad pose.
    Sad :(

  38. masaba’s creations are unique and fun. I like this Saree, and definitely Sonam has not done it justice. She looks lovely and all, no faultin’ her looks. However, she has not donned the beautiful saree well.

  39. This girl actually makes me want to buy a Masaba saree!! Seriously she can carry off ANYTHING with her spunk and smile. I don’t have too much to say about the saree, but she looks Gorg!!

  40. I think this might be my favorite appearance on the blog in QUITE a while. Love how eccentric yet totally chic this look is. Masaba is clearly a designer with vision and imagination, and Sonam has the required spunk and je ne sais quoi to really pull off the audacious, fun vibe of this look.
