    Perhaps it is just the pictures, but the eye makeup looks ashy and brings down the look. Would have preferred fresher makeup.

      You are right. Ashy is the word. For the overall look, even.

      On another note, she looked absolutely stunning in the movie.

      yup, the whole look feels that way…. and the makeup looks over loaded…

    Matronly is the word that comes to mind.

    The blouse looks more interesting and she should have a found a way to flaunt it.. Otherwise the entire look is just looks very Stewardessy to say the least…
    P.S. NOM to anyone belonging to any profession…

    Neither yay or nay…i like the way sonam styled the sari, but i don’t really like the sari itself.

    Sonam looks unbelievably beautiful in this sari. There are other pictures of her where her makeup doesn’t look so ashy. I absolutely love this look.

    Not even Sonam can save this sari. The blouse. Fugly is a polite word.

    Not a fan of blouses with sheer yokes/sleeves. But she makes it work. Agree with Chiaroscuro that the makeup looks greasy.

    Embroidery and sequins on this saree makes it look tacky….. Otherwise this saree would have worked , it does have this old world charm to it (narghis in 1950’s)…. This girl always wears too much makeup… She shud let her skin breathe

    She looks stunning, the drape is perfect but not a fan of the saree or the blouse.

    Don’t like this look one bit. The sari is matronly and blouse doesn’t work. Also hate the pleats from where underneath blouse shows up :(
    Hate the hair too. Why can’t she dress more like her age?

    Its a sari, that you just feel like saying something about.. The more I think I dislike it, the more I end up checking it out.. She definitely makes it work

    If somebody else had sported that look..then surely this saree would have qualified as WTHeyyyy…but sonam some how saved this….surely points goes to sonam for making this look work…a bit though !

    Please ..anybody else with this blouse at least would get the wrath of all fashionistas and Sonam gets away! She looks beautiful ..yes but neck up only

    I assume all of you are style gurus in your personal life to have such authority.

    A part of me wishes that any time the word Aunty is used in the comments it automatically does not go through the filter of approval

    It is horribly derogatory though I know the word itself isn’t

    It has become a default:
    If blouse has longer sleeves (elbow and below) and the sari is draped the traditionally, there is at least one comment claiming Aunty. Whose Aunty? Are you a 5 year old? Get over it
    On the flip side if the blouse has no sleeves and drape is off center, at least one person calls out “half boob show” which is so crass I’m sorry to say. We’ve moved into the 21st century and people drape saris in different ways so get over that too. And all the crap about ruining tradition – once upon a time tradition also had women only wearing the pallu on their heads

    Sorry about the rant. These 2 comments always get to me

    Anyway Sonam does look very pretty and while I wouldn’t pick that blouse she may have changed my mind

      + 1/2. the aunty comment irks me not because of the word but because of using it for looks you described. The half boob show comment i totally approve of. In my view half boob shows just take away from the elegance of the garment eg. Amisha style.

      and once upon a time the saree wasn’t supposed to have a blouse worn with it.
      totally agree with your comment, Megha :)

    Sonam looks stunning!! The look is classy, elegant and at the same time edgy! Only Sonam can pull off this look effortlessly.

    I saw better quality pics on other websites and then make up looked perfect there.

    The sari is Beautiful, but the makeup and hair didn’t worked for me.

    Haha@ traditional saree. Actually the common women never even wore pallus once upon a time it seems. Such is the case in some parts of rural Kerala even today. Hah!

      ^ that should have been under Megha’s comment :D
