Maximized

15

Two back to back looks saw Ms. Balan in two different maxis and while one look worked really well, the other one was a disaster.

I wish Vidya had worn the original Anupamaa design. I have that version and can attest to the fact that it is an extremely flattering design. I just don’t get why there was the need to take a cute maxi and turn into an awful anarkali.

  1. I think Vidya is looking fabulous in the Anita Dongre maxi. I’m not sure about the original Anupamaa design being too flattering on us curvy girls. It doesn’t seem to have any shape. While I don’t think that anarkali is anything to rave about, I can see why she went with it, in order to give the outfit more definition.

  2. Payal , The MAXI is quite ok . May be anupama designed an anarkali with the same pattern as well and that is what Ms.Balan has picked up ! Who says she picked up the maxi and altered into an anarkali ? Aren’t you being a little too presumptuous ?

    • Perhaps. But after staring at the close-ups (which you can see in the link) and seeing the bad stitching, am 90% sure this is a custom modified piece and not a variation that sometimes designers present. :)

      • Completely agree with Payal’s comment – such a beautiful maxi which will go really well with Vidya’s curvy figure, that was instead badly converted into a dumpy looking anarkali :( The yellow maxi looks so sweet on her though.

  3. But, but….. Vidya seems to be wearing the Anupamaa like a Maxi ….and since her arms may not be as toned as yours the designers added sleeves. I kinda like that fact that one can add black churidar and duppatta and wear it as an anarkali. By the way Vidya looks pretty good too, yes even the green Dongre is not so bad.

  4. She looks beautiful in the green maxi. I was sick of seeing her wear sarees. Its so refreshing to see her wear something like this. Now only if she’d change her hairstyle.

  5. P&P, i think you should not include Vidya’s posts in this blog. In her interview in KWK she clearly said it, she doesn’t get fashion. She doesn’t understand it. And not every actor needs to dress up like Sonam Kapoor…i think we should respect that and leave her out of this fashion rat race…She is the only actress who is a great actor and has the courage to be different….I can’t think of single Indian actress who could have carried of dirty picture without making it look obscene…Most of the other actresses look like clones of each other…it would be great if could respect her for her differences rather than constantly keep trashing her for her fashion sense…

    • Totally agree! She is a powerhouse of talent and concentrates on her work rather than her presentation and is not afraid to admit it. We should applaud her success in the crowd of the skinny women that Bollywood is.
