    ARGH! Why? The sari is hideous. Very. And that necklace, i am not too fond of either. Honestly, if these people are wasting money and beautiful diamonds like this, they dont deserve that lifestyle! X(

    It’s a pity money can’t BUY style!!

    The reason jewelry is kept in a dark colored velvet lined box is to show case its luster and shine. What a waste with all that money she did not use a stylist.Even the infamous Bachchan velvet would have worked a lot better than this saree.

    The bad saree, the badly fitted blouse, the awful side parting…what did the necklace do to deserve this…

    OMG. Her own or borrowed? N agreed!

    First off, not even a massive diamond necklace can justify heinous penciled on eyebrows. Ever.


    This is such a statement piece… I doubt she’d be the type to do a strapless dress but I wish she had worn something more suitable to show off the jewelery!

    I hope that is conflict-free in all aspects. :p

    I’m not the least bit surprised. Every desi aunty’s (50+) typical choice with a diamond set (even if its artificial) is a blingey sari. Supposedly “it adds to the glitter” … quote by, mum!

    I’m happy with my 1.5 carat…the bigger a diamond, the lower its clarity…but of course its a Cartier…so I guess it doesn’t matter then…

    OMG… well she could have chosen another saree which would complement the rock..

    wow…just goes on to prove that all the money in the world cannot buy you style!

    Money with no taste – this is what happens….
    Why would you wear it with the same colour saree? A simple dark colour saree would have brought out the necklace.

    money can’t buy good taste…

    Its beautiful!!!!!!!!! can’t believe she has killed its beauty the way she wore it..such a shame..unbelievable!!

    i agree..that combination is painful to look at,very.
    however if the lights go off..you know you have flashlights handy

    me too wondering on how much it would cost! :O

  19. bubs at | | Reply

    Oh my god, I can’t believe she actually CHOSE to wear that sari with that necklace?!! She needed to be wearing something plainer with this for sure, maybe silk or chiffon? Talk about killing the effect!

  20. Jems at | | Reply

    that sari is not so cute to begin with..and then for it to mask that bling makes it truly obnoxious!:)

  21. S at | | Reply

    and a tacky satiny shiny blouse at that!

    I can not imagine !!! 104 carats!! So much money and no taste .

    That necklace is not a very attractive fellow..if anyone gave that to me I wouldn’t wear it.
    And that sari.. no comments

  24. Addicted at | | Reply

    My eyes are hurting from all that dazzle. The necklace and the bracelt are gorgeous. Agreed that she could have worn a non-blingy dark shade sari to accentuate the bling on the jewelry. Its easier to show off diamonds on western outfits though with a deep neckilne.

    how can u guys be so sure that its real 104k diamond?….looks like cheap imitation jewelry to me

  26. ngm82 at | | Reply

    whoa! 104 carat!!! thats freakin me out!!! lol!

  27. fake at | | Reply

    and if it is real, how much is it?

  28. Lori at | | Reply

    I agree with everyone else, why bother wear something so pricey if it ends up blending in with your sari. What a waste.

  29. siddharth at | | Reply

    whether money can buy style or not is a separate discussion but yes a beautiful diamond necklace can certainly make 99.99% jealous and thats very apparent from a lot of comments here, and though I think that the Sari is kind of ugly but the woman definitely looks confident and smart and the necklace is gorgeous..

  30. FREIDA FAN at | | Reply

    this is such a shame!!! A stunning piece like that lost in the glitz of a saree is just the height of having too much money but no fashion sense. the only way to wear this is with a bare neck and just the necklace on and no other jewelry or ott accesories.

  31. deewani at | | Reply

    why can’t I find this necklace when I search for it in Cartier ste, P&P from where did u get info abt this necklace?

    104 carat necklace.. i just cannot imagine who wud be able to pay for something like that..

  34. mm at | | Reply

    i really hate that blingy sari. just goes to show that many people have more money than sense. the ginormous diamond is too in your face, ott, neaveau riche and flashy.

  36. me at | | Reply

    Okies Honeys, that goes to show that you need to distribute your money to look good which obviously Mrs didn’t do, she could have buy a smaller rock but in stead spent some of the money or a classy sari, some on getting a pair of perfect tatooted eyebrow, some on a good facial to get ride of grey flaky skin, some on a grea concelar to cover the under eye circlues. Don’t put all ur eggs in one baskets, distribute baby its all about distributino otherwise your neck will shine but the rest of you will scream tacky

    So that’s what 104 K looks like…
    I don’t like the pencil thin eyebrows….looks yuck. People often wear blingy sarees with blingy jewellery in India. While I do get the point of letting the 104K do the talk…I don’t think its that unusual to see Indian women wear it all at once !

    Really think she bought it? Most high end jewelry stores lend their items out to high profile people. Unfortunately she is not doing it any justice in these photos.

    @ Smoothiesbarf:

    How do you suppose ‘flashlights’ would work without any light for them to reflect? ;)

  41. p at | | Reply

    oh come on.. she is probably from my mom’s generation and has her own idea of style.. don’t hold her to today’s standards..

  42. _*Dia*_ at | | Reply

    i like the necklace, but together with the saree and it looks painful.

  43. zara at | | Reply

    @p: That’s no excuse. My mother is in her 40s and she’s a fabulous dresser! She would never, in a million years, even think of wearing such a tacky sari, and would probably die before she plucked her eyebrows that thin. Being understated and elegant is not an example of “today’s standards”; it’s a universal rule of fashion. There are plenty of older women who are consistently stylish: Helen Mirren, Judi Dench, Sharmila Tagore, and Waheeda Rahman, to name a few.

    ha ha, funny read above. I can just see the non Billionaire club- wives now nagging their husbands for one……

  45. deewani at | | Reply

    that still does not answer my que :P.. how do u get the info on its carat’s and all…

  46. CocoNUT at | | Reply

    WOW! What a waste…the whole necklace is hidden in the sari. The diamond would have shined with a black simple sari or something. And don’t even get my started on her sharpie over-plucked eyebrows. Thick is always better!

  47. R at | | Reply

    for a non celeb, desi aunty… i don’t think wearing a blingy necklace with a blingy saree/blouse is that unheard of! i’m from delhi… and there were a lot of aunties dressed like this at my wedding! they think that since the saree’s not dark, they look “understated”. funny, yes. unheard of, no.

    @ R – OMG I soooo know what you’re talking about! I know where I live, when there’s a wedding, the aunties bring out their most flashy saris and heavy, heavy jewelery. It’s always way too much, but they think they look good LOL

    sometimes the person I ask for advice on which earrings match my outfit is my hubby coz i am a commenor.Being a spice telecom barronness ,u must be having stylists.makeup artists at ur beck and call and despite all the status and the awsome rock Mrs Modi turns up to look like this.Major Blooper !!!!!!

    HA HA. whats the big deal people? Why is everyone so effing jealous? I’m sure a lot of us know stylish older women, but not everyone is born with style. In fact, most women at her age, that is my mom’s age dresses like that. She looks happy and confident. And this kind of combination is certainly not unheard of.

    Although I’m not jealous because I haven’t started appreciating diamonds according to carats yet (that’s just because right now I’m too busy investing in clothes and shoes) am sure this one is real expensive, but I would die before I wear something like this. It looks too loud, like imitation jewelry. She could have chosen a better design
