In Laila Motwane

52

Aptly keeping hubby Akshay’s movie in mind, Twinkle Khanna wore a blue sari by Laila Motwane. I wonder if she doesn’t wear saris much because she doesn’t know how to tie them well or because she is out of practice, but one thing is for sure, the lady knows what colors suit her best. Any other color might have made the bad draping stand out but the blue looks so refreshing. You like?

  1. Pretty pretty pretty pretty sari :) So fresh
    My grandma is the only one in my family who knows how to properly drape a sari (sad, I know- I had to learn about style from the INTERNET, thanks unfashionable mom)
    …I have to ask her to teach me when she comes to America again

        • Hey ladies…help me out: which internet site did you find most useful ? PnP doesn’t allow links, so could you please let me the name of the site.

          I have the same problem, and haven’t found the right website yet.

  2. Ooohh….lovely saree. Great hair and make-up too. And I love that she’s wearing a normal blouse and has drawn her saree properly across her chest. Nice non-blingy, non-filmy saree even if poorly draped.

  3. love love love absolute love…. both the saree and her :D its easy to ignore the slight poor draping because kudos to her for not doing the ‘one boob expose’ thingy!! I am also soooooooo glad she didn’t do a manish malhotra like every other b-town actresses. Seriously I am just tired of mm saree weraing actresses. This saree is a masterpiece and she did full justice.. like someone here said so ‘not filmy and not blingy’

  4. Minus the draping she gets brownie points for the nice color and above all wearing a sari like it’s meant to be worn-to cover the body. None of that teeny-tiny blouse with sari half falling off business. Thanks Twinkle-nice to see someone who actually uses the sari to cover themselves.

  5. She looks so nice, she seems like one of the only ‘normal’ a.k.a. well dressed woman in B-town..always manages to match things well, chose appropriate clothing and complimentary colors (notice how these are all things we learn in kindergarten?)

    • Lol yes.

      And she does it well, she has aesthetic. On top of which, despite dressing well, and I’m sure she know’s it, she doesn’t convey arrogance, over-confidence through her posture or facial expression… As if she knows it all… She could sit Kareena, Deepika, Sonam and Katrina down and give them some much needed lessons.

  7. I don’t care for the sari, I find it kind of tacky but the colour does look good on her. She has this effortless style thing going for her and looks better now than she did when she was in the movies!

  8. Now that’s what I call classic and timeless…. she looks FAB… love the sari and even the careless draping.
    So refreshing wish I could see the work on the sari more closely it looks so delicate and pretty.
    Full marks Twinkle way to go girl.

  9. WOW…I mean yeah the draping is bad but atleast she did full justice to the sari. It’s nice to see the sari worn like it’s suppose to.

    Let’s hope these other actresses can learn a thing or two from twinkle.

  10. i’ll only say yes to the sari color.. otherwise.. the blouse is no-no, the draping is terrible, and the hair – i’m not even going there!

    • It should be pleated a bit more properly at the bottom and also the way she has draped it looks like she has just thrown it around and over her shoulder very lazily. Not properly draped over her shoulder and it should be fitted a bit more by pulling it a bit more tightly over her shoulder. Still love the color and would take it any day over the tacky falling off saris with their non-existent blouses.

    • also, looks like it is about to fall off. look at her posture, looks like she wants to keep her hands close to her body to hold the sari up…

  11. I was there at MEIFF Blue screening… saw her in person (from a distance of course).

    Honestly, she didn’t look that good. The sari colour was so-so, and she looked tired and a bit washed out.

  12. Hey!!! how come Amrita gets ripped all the time for good dress and bad hair and Twinkle doesnt??
    She sports bad hair everytime she wears saree and she cant drape it right either!!
    Not fair!! Not fair!!!

  13. The colour of the sari is the only good thing about this. How can we say that she’s worn it well, when it’s not even draped properly?
    -lt’s too long at the bottom – hopefully she didn’t trip
    -she didn’t pull it across her chest properly hence it’s drooping
    -she tucked the pallu into her arm, so you can’t see the design
    -her hair looks unkempt
    -why would anyone wear such a manly watch with a sari? I don’t think watches go with Indian-wear.

    Twinkle, it’s a major film for your husband and an overseas premiere, you could have made an effort!

    • I just saw more pictures of the premiere, and the blouse was so loose it was falling off her shoulders! As someone mentioned, this might possibly be her mother’s sari!

  14. Geez…I have grown up outside of India and am overweight and I can drape a saree better than she did with all the help she has. I like that she hasn’t done the one boob out thing but come on look at those pleats!
