Day And Night

Before attending the FICCI Frames 2010 Awards in a Sabyasachi sari, Vidya Balan attended an anti-piracy campaign initiated at the seminar in a Sabyasachi anarkali. While she looked lovely in both outfits, I am drawn more towards the anarkali just because it was something different than what she has donned in the recent past.

Which look do you prefer?

  4. are you serious? after what seems like a lifetime of seeing her in Anarkalis, I much prefer seeing her in a saree. I like both outfits, but good lord, i am tired of seeing VB in anarkalis.

  5. Love the anarkali …… but lately i’m getting a little bored with all the Sabyasachi …. too much of those around ……

    as much as i love Sabyasachi designs, i always get the feeling that they are great for winter/autumn ….. I have never seen one that would be a great summer or spring wear – something light, feminine, flirty, young full of those joyful summer-ry colours ….

    like the anarkali here, i kept trying to imagine myself wearing it … an evening chilly party – perfect ….. sweltering delhi heat ….. errr…. no thank you ……

    i can’t remember a good summer/spring Sabyasachi design … does anyone else ?

  6. OK, Now it is officially boring and unimaginative. Agreed, there will be many comments to this post- Some will go gaga over how beautiful she looks (which is right in some ways) and some will totally lambast her fashion sense (or lack thereof). I think that if you are in the celluloid business, you should try and be creative (or at least try a different type of saree). As for Sabya, his designs are beautiful, but how many can tell by looking at his outfits and say, “OH, this is Sabya Spring/ summer 2009” or “That’s Sabya Fall 2010”, because all his designs look the same to me!
    I already forgot this look 10 minutes back!

    • I totally agree with u … all of his designs are almost of same pattern … I appreciate the fact that he always do Indian works with his designs … but other than kalamkari and banarasi he can do something different … personally I can buy only one his designs .. but I cant stuff all my wardrobe with sabyasachi like Vidya … she should try other than him ..

  7. Beautiful. Love both looks. But I am repeating myself – she looks better with a bindi when in a saree. I do wish she would change the style of the blouse though.

  8. Oh my god that anarkali is to die for! The colours are exquisite, I know Vidya loves her anarkalis and most people are going to hate her wearing one again – but when its this gorgeous who cares! The sari is beautiful also, but I feel like I’ve seen her wear the same one in different colour variations a ton of times before. Its great she sticks to Sabyasachis, but surely he has different styles of saris also, maybe she should try out one of those?

  9. ok. wen these printed sleeves first came out, i thought it was new, smart, clever, kitschy, different.. but vidya balan has managed to make it so dated so soon!

  10. Whew! What a big relief! Finally I see a pic of Vidya looking absolutely lovely in a saree and jhumkas…..blouse could be updated a bit, maybe, but I won’t complain. She is a beautiful lady and I’m glad to see her wear a saree the way it should be…very elegant. Thanks to whoever it was who helped her wear the saree. Hope to see more of her like this.

  11. Wow – I am impressed. This time around she is 2 for 2 in my books. Looks stunning in both. I am always happy to see a fully clothed Bollywood gal in Vidya. I wish the rest of the lot took note.

  12. I loved both saree and anarkali..I like the way she drapes the saree..I would also like to know where we can get this type of anarkali..

  13. Really? I thought the plain black on the yoke of the anarkali is rather jarring amidst the prints. I love the saree & boy she looks good….well drapped too!!

  14. I think she finally found her inner Diva and am happy for her…looks gorgeous and glamorous…yes glamorous….unlike commom bollywood notion glamour is all about western clothes…she looks femenine and beautiful and sexy if I may say so….I just hope she experiments mopre with different styles of Indian clothes and not get stuck in anarkali rut forever…maybe something like a fitted knee length/pencil skirt kinda fit kurta with churidars…

    • Totally! I’m so glad you pointed out that glamour need not be about western clothes, and that she looks not only beautiful and well-dressed, but glamorous too!

  16. whether one likes her dress sense or not, one has to admit that she must be doing something right if she’s managed to generate so much debate and so many comments.

  17. Does one need to change/mix up styles to stop being “boring”? Far as I know Audrey Hepburn stuck to the same look and designer all her life. And we know her reputation. I think it’s good VB , while no Hepburn and quite capable of misstepping, is evolving towards her own style instead of wearing what is in fashion and quite likely landing in the WTHeyyy. A sari might be boring these days but people the possibility exists it just may be the garment for a particular person!

    Also I think Vidya Balan has taken on the mantle of most commented on this site. Step aside, Ms. Rai!

        • Audrey Hepburn stuck to Givenchy but I dont think she ever looked repitative…Sabyasachi is a great designer but I would only like to own 1 or 2 of his outfits..his palettes are limted to black, red, brown and dark blue..and gold…and basically are a patchwork of different unmatched patterns brought together as a whole, which is brilliant, but thats all he does.

          • star i agree with you!!!i thought that im the only one who have this feeling for sabyaschi designs!! and i think vidya balan has no style whenever i look at her i feel that she copies rani mukherji!!

    • hehe …. like what you said and I agree, if she looks best in a sari then she should stick to her comfort level!!

      better than PC and her ultra short dresses and bikini blouses!

  18. My my my this is the first time I loved what Vidya is wearing…left me speechless!! Usually I don’t comment on every pic…but his time I could’t just keep mum and all to myself!!
    …hmmm adored her in anarkali esp. with those sleek pair of high heels and sheer churidaar!! Loved her gorgeous pair of jhumkaas…drooolliinngggggggg!!
    Vidya, you rock this time!! You’ve kind of made it in my books!! :)

  19. the anarkali is not different from what she has worn in the past – she seems to be drawn towards this style of neck/fit and sleeves – serach for Vidya in this site and also lookup the dress she is wearing which you have put up on Nov 4th

  20. If Maliaka can keep wearing short, skimpy dresses all the time, why can’t Vidya keep wearing Sabyasachi’s ethnic clothes all the time, esp gvein how lovely ans unique she looks..

  22. She looks beautiful, and the sari and the anarkali both are to die for.. Oh heavens.. when will I get myself a Sabyasachi .. WHEN??

  23. P & P: dont you think it is time she made an appearance in something other than a salwar/saree. She has lost weight and it isnt about your body, it is about picking the right dress, hope she tries little more. For actors who make way too many appearances, same look gets boring.

  24. Loving the sari on her … the colours et al go very well together. Only thing – her constant blouse length is getting annoying .. I think she could have worked even full length sleeves with this sari. Also, agree with someone above about her trying out different silhouettes in traditional clothes, such as a fitted pencil kurta with churidar. And whether it’s the makeup or not, she always has this lovely glowing face :)
