      Well..her pose is better than that of the woman in the pink in the background.

        I’m sure there were hundreds of ladies at airport wearing whatever ( positive they dress at least better than her) with awkward poses. But the unfortunate thing is they are not featured on this blog. So the comparison is silly. Kthxbai.

            vicious?? really?? i just don’t get this…how can we compare a so called celebrity with a commoner…celebrities spend $$ for their looks..we commoners don’t do that…hence comparing them is not a right thing..if somebody don’t like a look…then isn’t it ok?? everyone is entitled to his/her opinion..am i wrong??

      I wish other celebrities would do the same-not splurge on leather bags that are the result of apalling animal cruelty. I wish more of them would switch to a brand like Stella McCartney.

        What about silk sarees like the one featured above. Millions of silk worms lives? Debate can get endless.

        1. Sev at | | Reply

          I’m afraid I beg to differ on that-the nervous system and pain perception in animals slaughtered for leather is similar to that of humans (I know this because I’m currently studying towards a PhD in Biology in North America).
          And I agree that worms too should not have to be sacrificed. But how many celebs do you see here in silk sarees as opposed to the number that carry leather bags/belts/shoes? It’s funny how even when a high-end brand like Stella McCartney makes being fashionable and ethical so easy, celebrities still shy away from shopping for more ethical products. I mean, can there be abigger name in the world of fashion than Stella McC?

            Worms or cows/alligator/snake. What difference does it make? I think Saya is just trying to say if carrying leather bags have to be given a miss perhaps all the silk sarees too. I am sure the silk products consumption in India is as much as of leather bags. And i heard they actually put the cocoons in boiling water or burn the left over caterpillars so it as gory as the salughter house horror stories. To say that one is > than another is just silly.

            Why is my comment moderated? I have seen you doing this for a lot of comments when it comes to Vidya balan. No fair. My response was within your guidelines and if talking about leather/animal cruelty was such a no no, then the above comment from Sev alone gets a free pass? Only praises for Vidya will be allowed? Jeez! This biases shown towards commentators is so annoying.

            Though it seems like it, we aren’t always at our computers. Sometimes it just takes time for us to see and approve comments. I don’t see any of yours pending moderation.

            P.S: When there are comments on a post with multiple user names using the same ip address, comments do get flagged.

            I think a key point is I made in my remark on animal cruelty is being ignored to the extent that it obfuscates my point.I said that since I am working in the area of neural research in animals, I can say confidently that though it is unethical to use any animal for luxury goods,science has shown that mammals like cows that are used for leather have a much more advanced perception of pain and suffering unlike insect species. So if one was to make a decision on whic animal is suffering to a greater degree, you would have to pick mammals. I have worked on the nervous system of both higher order species as well as insect species, so I am confident about the veracity of these claims. That. Is all I said,and my comment was directed at celebrities because they can afford the high end, ethical brands like Stella McCartney unlike the rest of us who would have to do with the decidedly lower quality Payless bags and shoes were we to make such ethical choices. Again, I spek from experience because I have been leading a vegan lifestyle for the past 4 years and have therefore being researching these issues.
            And. Yes, I do appreciate Vidya Balan to a point that unwittingly, her work has become more important to me than her clothes etc. I do not know if she is ethical with regards to using products made from animals. It’s just that someone’s comment made me think of this issue.

          5. Saya at |

            I still maintain my stance with regards to this particular blog post. My point is if a celebrity can be so aware of animal cruelty and chose non leather (which i don’t think is in this case, its just that she has poor dressing sense leather or non) or a Stella McCartney they can very well use Ahimsa silk too. I am not sold on the statement that wearing silk is of lesser evil or wearing Stella McCartney is an higher ethical thing to do whatever the endless reasonings given. Each to her/his own.I rest my case.

        Then what about struck to one B’Ful bag…instead of this one

  3. Adara at | | Reply

    And they say that she doesn’t care about what she wears. But she seems to have picked up the tackiest desginer bag & kurta. Money can never buy style or class. Be it Ms Patel or Ms Balan.

    I actually think she looks good. She’s not trying hard to be someone else! Some celebrities look so uncomfortable in the tight-ass clothing that they wear to airports! Vidya looks relaxed and in her zone.

    1. kasthuri at | | Reply

      I agree. Although she looks amazing the kancheepuram saree. Cant really be compared to the Maxi look.

  5. seenthereseenthat at | | Reply

    Ms Balan’s previois Airport maxi look was the ugly one which somehow passed as okay on this site.The above kurta look is so so and the saree is the only saving grace.Her hair jewellery need a total revamp

  6. Anu at | | Reply

    I love the kanjeevatam saree look and she looks divine in it… I would love to add that saree to my collection! You can’t fault that look.

    Now that maxi… It’s not as flattering on her. It is nice to see that celebs have that ‘fav carry it all travel bag’ like us mortals :) Those shoes I agree, just have to go! Throw them out NOW Vidya!

    Awful maxi look, previous one was better.

    Also I lol at the inanities of the anti-Vidya brigade on every post. I am sure there are more than a few people who have Ash and Vidya alerts for determined anit-fangirling!

    She looks like Kiron Kher in the saree look. That look ages her by at least 2.5 decades.

    She wears the Kanjeevaram with such elegance & grace…lovely drape

  10. Devi aka DearFashionista at | | Reply

    Vidya’s looks always appears incomplete to me!! In the Kanjivaram sari, her face is so blah & undone.

    I’m speechless relating to the kurta. It is possible that this is her way of rebelling & bringing out her inner frumpy girl! :D

    1. Gaiatri at | | Reply

      Totally agree. I don’t get the constant raving in this blog every time she wears Kanjivaram. Right from my childhood, I have watched countless women (young and old alike) look much more elegant in sarees than Vidya. It doesn’t look remotely elegant when she wears such traditional sarees without bindi. It’s absolutely unfair, though, that she gets so much attention on a leading fashion blog despite being so utterly unfashionable and unstylish.

    Hey Vidya is wearing the same saree that Lakshmi Manchu wore at Ram Charan – Upasana Kamineni wedding ! Who wore it better :) http://www.highheelconfidential.com/sridevi-lakshmi-manchu-and-sneha-reddy-at-ram-charan-upasana-kamineni-wedding/

    @Priyanka : The comment earlier showed up but went missing after few mins.This has been the case with a lot of comments(not mine) i read and then those comments go missing. Being a reader of your blog for more than 5 years i know which can get moderated but sometimes it feels unfair to see the whole thread getting removed which is within your “guidelines” .Anyway i think its better off to limit comments since it’s still your blog and at your discretion. Good day!

        Obviously there will be a lot of people taking offence to a lot of things.It definitely hurts to be in your shoe. lol. Thanks for taking the time to response.

    I think she looks quite nice in both places…she’s a lady with a life beyond her clothes…

    Oh for gods sake.. just let her be! She is at the airport !!

    Guys how come no one’s thinking – there is a stylist actually paid to pull these frumpy looks off ? The sari I like – simple and classic but that bag with the shapeless kurta, oh so wrong miss Balan.

  17. Gaiatri at | | Reply

    “… two looks that were as different as night and day.”
    LOL PnP, that’s an ingenious use of words to salvage the ONLY two looks VB ever sports in her lifetime – sari look and desi maxi look with her second-skin-brown-handbag.

  18. Katie at | | Reply

    I completely agree! She looks stunning in the sari but the kurta does not suit her. She has a great figure and the kurta does not highlight this- maybe adding a thin black belt around the waist would help.
