    m not liking the blouse ..and the pose with breasts thrust out …not like u sonam …we dont need another deepika … girl has killer smile …

      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.

        @Kasthuri: Agree!! The saree could’ve been worn better.

    Eww at the belly exposure. But the sari is nice and different. She copied Deepika’s chest thrust pose in the first pic. HA!

    What a lovely sari and Sonam is looking so skinny and beautiful … Absolutely love her with this makeup and hair … She looks like she s walked out of a sharmila tagore movie ….

      In my view Sonam is too skinny to wear this saree…she looks so emaciated and bony, it’s shocking.
      I’d classify this as WTHey

    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.

      I agree completely. I’d classify this as a WTHeyy. Like, for real.

      Totally agree. Trying too hard not to be matchy, matchy and failing miserably. Sonam makes it worse by wearing it so badly. I don’t know whether my eyes should rest on those hideous handprints or that orange color or the transparency of the pallu or that waist show-off…..Ah, goodness..so tiresome.

    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.

    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????

      I agree the pallu could have been drapped so much better.I have yet to see an actress wear a dupatta the right way. But a pallu shouldn’t be that hard to pull off!!

        A few days ago in an interview with HHC, Masaba said these words

    I don’t think Sonam has either the build or the body language to carry off a saree, especially one with a sheer palluv like this one. Not a great endorsement for Masaba at all.

    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.

    1. EM. at | | Reply

      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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    1. swati at | | Reply

      Who is Ms D ?

  64. Koel at | | Reply

    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.

    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?

    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

  70. ss at | | Reply

    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.

    She looks young and fashionable. and for some reason, not at all tacky. love her look, and am going to try it for an upcoming party.

  72. EM. at | | Reply

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
