    CHRISTMAS! Am in the spirit.but, smaller girls should have smaller borders

    1. koel at | | Reply

      Every Christmas, our D’souza aunty used to put out her rose flower silk table cloth to decorate the center table. Once D’souza uncle gave it for dry cleaning and it never came back. The dry cleaner swears that he gave it back to D’souza aunty (May be he mistook Vidya for D’souza aunty…)

          lol @ koel. that is funny. actually the border reminds me of parsi sari borders except that they are not as wide as this.

        the border is ugh… but if she wud have had a watch.. the look would be great!! the usual charm that surrounds her is missing… :(

    she looks older to her age in this saree , think its the emb those bigggg flowers dont wrk at all on her acc to me !!

    it looks like curtain or gaudy sofa cover..yikes!!

    1. nikki at | | Reply

      Exactly my thoughts, the saree looks really bad with those big ugly flowers…

        Agree. Totally.

    Dislike the sari, particularly the border. The usual Sabya vibe is missing. VidyaB ruined it more with the way she wore it. Hair is a mess.

  5. shriya at | | Reply

    even my mom manages to look glamourous and unauntyish in saris which is something vidya hasn’t achieved here.

    vidya is looking like ‘pucca idiot’ at the idiots premiere!..lol
    jokes apart, i like the saree..but she shud have tied it higher..almost didnt notice the border at the feet. she looks like elaine(seinfield) with that curly hair here

      lol@pucca idiot. Elaine looked fab in a Sari in that indian wedding episode.

    Ewww, please don’t tell it is a Sabyasachi!!
    What’s up with her hair-do?
    I don’t like this look on her at all… 3/10

  8. chiku14 at | | Reply

    that saree luks like a bedsheet……
    blouse sleeves are jst too auntyish……honestly 3/4???
    n hair a big “?”

    Neck up, Vidya looks fabulous, and she even wears the sari well, but it’s too voluminous for such a tiny person, and the draping just emphasizes the “heaviness” of the sari; not a bad look by any stretch, however.

  10. Tina at | | Reply

    I think its the border- it WAY too big!

  11. Shireen at | | Reply

    The sari is worn in a hurry. the blouse looked borrowed from a yesteryear aunty.. and is that a very casual hair look? Just looks untidy!
    Dont feel like being so mean but Vidya can do soo much better. Even with her anarkalis!

  12. crab at | | Reply

    I’ll take it. At least it’s not an anarkali.

  13. SK at | | Reply

    cannot believe sabya wud give us this!!!
    this is so not a pretty saree. does not get my vote…
    but as always vidya drapes it well…

  14. MojitoLover at | | Reply

    Are you sure this is Sabya? Wow who would’ve thought. I agree, it is a beautiful sari, but she’s worn it very very very badly. And the broad border only makes her look bigger than she is.

  15. PV at | | Reply

    The saree is ugly.Can’t imagine the saree looking good on anyone.

  16. grozny at | | Reply

    I think that it is mainly the fact that the sari is satin! Indian women just cannot pull off satin for some reason, yet so many of them insist on wearing it!

  17. DP at | | Reply

    no offense, but that looks like a Christmas tree to me :|

  18. Megha at | | Reply

    wow that’s an ugly ugly sari
    it’s not vidya’s fault
    there’s no way that sari could look good – worn any way
    just my 2 cents – while i agree that some sabyasachi clothes are beautiful, there are also several that are not but there seems to be an aura around the brand that makes everyone swoon no matter what

  19. shyba at | | Reply

    Repeat…plain sari with printed border…..didnt like the flower print….may be good for tall girls(like me ;o)

  20. mary at | | Reply

    yawn. vidya manages to do the impossible i.e. make a sabya number look bad out of her sheer frumpiness, crazy repetitiveness and non creativity.

  21. anita at | | Reply

    I think there is such a thing as being too young to wear an outfit. And never hasit been truer than inthis case.
    It simply looks out of place on her…

    Satin saree in a Noel green color with fugly big rose embroidery!! What was Sabyasachi thinking when he designed this?? As for Vidya, I have no more words for her!!

    Namaste vidya bhenji !!!!

    1. hira at | | Reply

      The border is too wide for my liking

      and your comment is just too condescending.

      1. Rock~n~Rose at | | Reply

        @hira.. i think ashi spoke the truth.. she looks like those auntys who go all decked up to a mall / kitty party.. though most of them would tie their sari more neatly and actually run a comb through their hair

        1. Saya at | | Reply

          True that. Behenjis go all out and do a better job dressing up than VidyaB anyday.

        2. hira at | | Reply

          Heya! Agreed Vidya doesnt look her best and I normally avoid replying to comments that put down a celebrity but i guess over a period of time, I have begun to feel really really sorry for Vidya Balan. If she dresses ethnic, then she is a “behenji”, if she dresses western, she is a “behenji turned mod”. Its like everyone loves to rip Vidya apart.

          I wonder how severe beating her confidence might take if she reads some of the comments here. If the comments are sarcastic yet have some fashion opinion thrown it, they are still acceptable. Its just the condescending comments by people just for the heck of commenting that really get to me.

          1. Rock~n~Rose at |

            @ hira..

            What about all the flak other professionals take… for eg a politician .. ala Mr Bush … or an out of form cricketer.. merely getting “hurt” or demoralised by negative public feedback will not suffice.. take it as a bugle call to pull up your socks and get to work!

            So if Ms Balan feels so “hurt” by the behenji / behenji turned mod comments.. well… sista, hiring a competent stylist would seem a wise move..

  26. Sumi at | | Reply

    I don’t think it’s the sari that’s bad (at all, actually). The blouse throws the entire look off by not matching. Isn’t it the same blouse she’s been wearing all around recently?

    1. Sumi at | | Reply

      Also. The hair. Something needs to be done with it!! It looks like she just woke up and left without doing anything with it…

  27. Viz at | | Reply

    Don’t like the hair..lovely colour but not a fan of that sabyasachi saree. And again bored with vidya looking the same at all recent events. Actually I think kareena n vidya shud exchange designers for a lil while.. Wud bring some freshness. Even though manish has done an awful job at dressing vidya in the past. But then I personally don’t think he does any better with dressing other celebs. Atleast it might bring some comic relief instead of yawns

  28. Laveena at | | Reply

    Very bad.

  29. ID at | | Reply

    The saree is nice, rich and perhaps a tad too christmassy! What totally kills it is the matron-ish black blouse and bad bad hairdo! It pains me to see how vidya ruins classy sabyasachis’ again and again!

  30. ash at | | Reply

    I think its the satin background that ruins this saree for me and the border just swamps her, maybe a taller person could have pulled it off, or maybe she should have let the pallu fall free instead of pinning it – because as it is, its looking like border overload!

  31. nisha at | | Reply

    im sorry but im beginning to get reallllyyyy annoyed at her.. isnt she fed up of dressing the same everywhere she goes… obviously not!! from now on im going to ignore any of vidya’s posts..
    i love u guys at hhc and im a big fan but vidya just is sooo annoying…

  32. KS at | | Reply

    Not working at all! If there is anything i like it is the blouse though the fitting doesnt seem right on her. I love the grand olden era saree but i wont wear it.

  33. hhc-addict at | | Reply

    If this is a Sabya sari – it just proves that everybody has a bad design day:). Goes to say something about Vidya/stylist’s choice. You cannot blindly wear anything just because it is from a particular designer. Looks like she does not have an eye for aesthetics. That said she perfectly gels with the festive Christmas spirit.

  34. Chocolate Martini at | | Reply

    I think that some of Vidya’s outfits are very graceful and so organic and traditional that they bring a welcome relief from the Bollywood bling, but still for some one to stick to such safe, traditional outfits all the time, when there are so many other fun, fab choices out there… either she’s not at all interested in fashion or she’s a little insecure about her style

    I know she said that she isn’t interested in being a babe and that she’s intellectual, but still intellectuals change it up as well don’t they?

  35. Richa at | | Reply

    Nt even sure what to ugh first…..
    The Sari , or the uglier blouse, the monstrous hair, or the draping….or those beads……
    Beats me dnt they have mirrors in their houses???

  36. kaya at | | Reply

    This sari is Sabyasachi being complacent. and Vidya too.

  37. Ann at | | Reply

    She looks good…not great but good!!! I would definitely like her to experiment more. She seems to find a style and stick to it till it bores all..including herself. I hope, if she really wants to stick to sarees she experiment more. With all the options around, kancheevarams, jamdani, ikat n all. I love sabya but do not wish to see people in just one particular style. Thats so just not me!!

  38. Violet at | | Reply

    Why oh why Vidya. Those huge red things remind me of poinsettias. Too bad .. your face looks pretty as ever but the print is a bit horrid, sorry Vidya. Can you please, please hire someone or have someone advise u..someone with some taste. No offence, love you, but, just hate to see u make bad choices and move away from what u COULD be.

    Most people have said what I was thinking. Christmas tree was the first thought in my head. Vidya looks fab in sarees but this is definitely all wrong!
