    she looks gorgeous though…at least “someone” knows how a sari is draped!!!

    yawnworthy same ol’ for sure…does she realise how many different types of saris there are in India!

    Ms. Balan is way tooo young to make this style her signature style.

    it is certainly repetitive but she looks so much more put together here than her other appearances and the saree is to die for..I’ll somehow take this any day over 40’s somethings trying to dress like ‘teen something in barely there clothes :)

          Yeah man ! She looks gorgeous !

          I still hope she will try out sarees from other designers or even better non-designer sarees.

      Agree with u.
      100% vote – to the beautiful white saree and PROPER draping (no one boob show, abdomen show, see thru sarees, tacky borders….).

      I think this is her signature style, atleast for now.

    Given how beautiful she is, surely she can pull off different kinds of attire (Indian ethnic wear at least). Still she insists on sticking to the tried and tested. She looks lovely here but NEED TO SEE A CHANGE NOW !!!!

      I TOTALLY agree with RS here :) ….now a days , I start yawning before even opening the link of HHC [thr’ twitter] when they feature the combo of Vidya Balan & Sabyasachi. :O

    *yawn* good nite! thankx vidya for the help!

    thats it… its official… its her signature look! and its not a bad one. lets all make our peace with it.
    i just wish she’d experiment with different sarees

  8. nav at | | Reply

    dont expect anything new from her. it is clear that she will always wear sabyasachi. she said on a show that she trusts him and only he can dress her right. she looks good though.

  9. HHC Fan at | | Reply

    I think this is her style and she looks good in it. She is trying to channel Rekha- the minimalistic Rekha. I would love to see her wear sarees of other kinds and not just Sabyasachi!

  10. Rachna at | | Reply

    I don’t think I would yawn at that, probably write it off as her security blanket. From the looks of it, she seems insecure about her body and hence lacks the courage to try something new. I’d say Indian ethnic attire is one of the safest bets, atleast on indian women, and her persistent refusal to give us looks from the vast collection of indian attire only goes to prove she could do so much better with a stylist, heck even a lifestyle coach (not trying to be rude but for such a pretty girl, she could use some creative criticism).

    Horrible as ever

    Love it by default. After all, it’s Vidya in Sabya.

  13. olala at | | Reply

    it is not as if she is playing safe in sarees. check out celina and her sarees.

    she does look so good!

    what is designer bout the sari..??

    1. Geethanjali at | | Reply

      Thank goodness somebody said it ! Seriously ,what is there to design here ? Many weavers across our country spend countless painstaking hours and come up with hundred times better design than this. Just because it is Sabya we dont have to give it big blind nod. He is good at his stuff compared to others but sarees like these dont need any mention whatsoever

    She looks good, as usual, in sarees. The saree is beautiful too. My gripe is about the blouse. You guys can do a dozen “Again” posts about the blouse.
    Sabya, this is for you. She trusts you, so isn’t it your job to make sure you design something else that looks good on her. Where is your creativity? Have you given up designing, esp for your main ambassador?

  16. duh at | | Reply

    she has decided this to be her style, so this is her style. for those who keep talking about having and not having a style, this is what happens when u have a style. ppl can predict, hence it’s going to be boring most of the time.

  17. trinket at | | Reply

    I’d rather see her look fab in a ‘done to death look’ , than ‘experiments-horribly-gone-wrong-wtheyy’!

  18. Adara at | | Reply

    YAWN! God, how can a lady be this boring in her choice of clothes?

  19. x3hee at | | Reply

    i find the border of the sari too thick. also the combo of open hair hanging down, thick border, and tenty drape of the saree…it all makes the look too ‘heavy’ if u know what i mean.

  20. KS at | | Reply

    OR you could just say she is looking good. which she is.

  21. GG at | | Reply

    Well finally a look she has nailed perfectly. I was tired of seeing her swing from western (which she was miserably failing at) to Rekha inspired kanjeevaram- open hair- lots of makeup look.
    Make up actually does a disservice to Vidya’s beauty. She needs the natural make up or no make up look. Not everyone needs to look western ramp material.
    Vidya looks most beautiful when she doesn’t try to hard.

  22. sash at | | Reply

    I think Vidya has found her comfort level when it comes to style. Sabya sarees suit her very indian face. She’ll probably start experimenting, we just have to be patient. I think she looks fabulous, simple, elegant most of all appropriate…

  23. R at | | Reply

    She’s learned to drape the saree. Good.
    I don’t really mind that she sticks to sarees. She likes them. Okay. But can she please, at least, experiment with the TYPE of saree?

  24. Roni at | | Reply

    At first I didnt want to bother myself with comments but Priyanka’s intentions to perhaps “write Vidya’s dressing as style’ caught my attention.

    Cladding your self over and over again in the same ol sari does not spell style for me. For instance Celina loves sari and many of us would not wear it ‘her way’ but oh heck I think that’s Celina’s style and she has a style.

    Vidya simply wraps herself in the sari and that’s the only effort she makes to really ‘dress up’ .So I dont think there is any ‘style’ going on with her.

      Agree. Totally.

  25. pdaervo at | | Reply

    I would accept this as her “style”, but still feel like she doesn’t know what she’s doing. Sabya seems to be her benefactor, HE has a very definite sense of style. She still seems completely clueless.

  26. Lalitha at | | Reply

    Signature style notwithstanding, she is starting to look a tad matronly and needs to dress more her age. Live a little Vidya!

  27. monika at | | Reply

    she looks lovely & it’s an event appropriate look. Boring,sure but i’ll take boring over tacky any day & tacky is what most turn out in Bollywood

  28. naiad at | | Reply

    Hmm went through some previous Vidya posts. She wears western and you bash her, she wears Indian and you write her off!!

    Why dont you women appoint yourselves as her stylist! Im sure you would do a marvelous job!

    1. anon at | | Reply

      Vidya was not bashed for wearing western…she was bashed for not wearing it right…and same holds for indian clothes that she wears…although she has corrected the draping of the saree… i still feel she is not comfortable even in wearing a saree…salwars she does well i have to admit.

      1. naiad at | | Reply

        Hmm I really dont know what you are talking about cos she is as comfortable as one can be in a saree :)

        Face it, not all women can carry off western. Yea she can try and eventually get there, but if she has found her comfort zone and is sticking to it, dont see anything wrong with it.

        After all Vidyas purpose in life is not to please us or the HHC bloggers.

  29. Viz at | | Reply

    That’s not her style.. That sabya’s style. That’s just a comfortable way of dressing up for her.. Like someone said a security blanket. I mean really u can’t fault her look. She looks gorgeous! N she knows but heck doesn’t she get bored! I don’t think knows wat her style is as yet n thus stick to something she knows is safe!

    1. ash at | | Reply

      I agree, shes more like Sabyas ‘muse’ and hes the one dressing her. I don’t think she has a style per se, shes just wearing what shes been told to.She looks gorgeous though, its a look that works on her.

    I wish she would sto wearing those elbow length blouses.Makes her hands looks stumpy and short.Maybe a Deepika or Dipannita or a Dia can carry it of but not Vidya. Otherwise she looks pretty.Gorgeous saree.

  31. duh at | | Reply

    ok, dont want to discuss further about what her style is or not, but i have decided that this (sari, salwar kameez – which are not too blingly, having more earthy appeal with few jewellery pieces) is her style.

    if the website starts posting dita von teese, audrey hepburn, or whichever syle icons at the rate of how the celebrities are posted in this website, i will be bored of those so called style icons too. seeing someone more often and seeing the same style, same thing over and over is boring for me.
