Sari Style

Sticking to her signature style, Amala kept it simple and elegant in her kalamkari sari while at a recent Awards event. Though it may fall in to the way-too-basic category for some of you, we think Ms. Akkineni looked lovely.

In Jatin Varma

For the Awards night, Amala picked a Jatin Varma gown, one that she paired with jewelry from Versace and Suhani Pittie and Jimmy Choo sandals. Matching purple lip color added the ever important finishing touch to her look. The gown works well on the actor; she looked nice. (Just wish she had picked different sandals!)

However, having seen Genelia wear a gown from this very collection, in the same color just a day before, the feeling of déjà vu was hard to escape. While the gowns were different from each other, having spotted the two back-to-back, they were alike enough to lack any novelty by the time Amala got around to wearing it. Bummer!

In Arpita Mehta

Wearing an Arpita Mehta lehenga-sari, Amala attended the audio launch of the Tamil movie ‘ Idhu Enna Maayam’. Given the full-sleeve blouse and the pattern, it was a good move to keep it simple on accessories. While she looked nice, I found the stitched box pleats on the lehenga itself a bit odd.

Just me?

At The Awards

8

Both these ladies changed it up at the recent Awards. To different results.

One to be mostly seen in saris, Amala picked a purple embellished suit wear. A metallic clutch and mary-janes finished out her look. Though we give her props for stepping away from the expected, this particular suit wasn’t way to go. Though she looked cute, let’s face it, even Amala couldn’t salvage that outfit.

Also a surprise was Lakshmi in her Manish Malhotra sari. Though personally we aren’t big on mesh blouses, she sure looked great!

These lovely ladies continue to do what they do while sticking to their aesthetic. Besides, we doubt we are about to see ’em change anything up, anytime soon. Not that we really mind. And yes, hundreds of women dress like this everyday but that’s not a bad thing now, is it? We like.
