    Haha. She never fails to make a clown of herself. This goes to prove good designers cannot make the outfit work on fashion challenged in this case not even a normal way of putting things together. This woman has to stop giving these good designers a bad name. Jesus!

      Uff where did a whole sentence disappear. My iPhone is crazy. I was saying..work on Fashion challenged people. In this case not even a normal way of putting pieces together has gone terribly wrong. She should be sued by Sabyasachi for ridiculing his outfit.

    I have to go back to the last saree to feel better now
    Also, I want to run a brush through her hair :l

    why why WHY is it so difficult for her to even dress normal?!?!?

    Okay not to be snarky or anything but she’s worn the same rust-on-black-print 3 times in a row now! She first wore it on a kurta with off-white churidhaar I think, then on a blouse with that wonderful green sari, and now here! (Though the first two were polka dots and this is a geometric print.) Enough already!
    As usual, I can not find fault with Sabya’s clothes, but this has to be the most unimaginative pairing ever.
    And horrible hair.
    What a gorgeous woman, what a waste.

    I bet that shirt will look awesome with a plain black tank top and lots of silver bangles!

    P.S. Vidya, Please stick to your anarkalis!

      Now I have my doubts..is that a skirt, seems divided like a long culotte.

    Sabyasachi is not the easiest designer to wear unless you have your own personal style – and a strong one at that!
    Sadly Vidya …though talented and pretty … has very little personal style and does not understand the garments she’s wearing…which leads to disasters such as above.
    and as always vidya disappoints in her footwear – her and rani mukherjee always have bad footwear… why?
    on the plus side – her make up looks great…

    WHOA!!!!!! What is she wearing?! No wonder she gets all this flake for her dressing sense. You guys didn’t say anything about her hideous shoes (boots)!!!
    2 thumbs down!

    Vidya… please make me your dress designer! I swear I will give you better designs than this one! What was she thinking? She’s spoilt both the pieces by teaming them up this way…..reminds me of clothes we would chose for some historical play back in college!!!

    ROFL… I’m sorry. I’m laughing at the futility of this. She has a beautiful face. She is being dressed by one of the best designers in the country. and she STILL manages to screw it up.

    she is beginning to annoy me.. its like she dresses like this on purpose!!

    Everytime I look at Vidya’s pics on HHC, I’m compelled to comment on it.
    Why did she have to ruin such a pretty kurta and skirt by wearing ’em together ://

  18. akaa at | | Reply

    Oh lord!!
    He would definitely not approve of this!!
    She has copied the run-way look as -is and it fails on her because she is not model tall or model thin ..
    And those shoes .. she’s been wearing them in almost all her recent appearances, irrespective of the dress ……

    Even Sabyasachi couldn’t help her .. sigh!!

    1. Such at | | Reply

      I don’t think her not being tall or thin is the problem here!

      1. akaa at | | Reply

        Completely agree .. that is not the problem… the problem is her making a mess of those individually nice pieces …
        What I’m trying to say is she has just copied the runway look..
        I have the pics from this collection of Sabya and the models wore those pieces together .. a long kurta with those divided skirts .. but it looked fabulous because of the styling of the models( they are clothes-horses after all) and runway look is completely different .. you’ve got to interpret it in your own way to wear a runway piece in real life… and she’s failed to do that… that same Kurta on her with some well -tailored patiala salwars would be simply awesome!!

    I think Ms. Balan’s trying to pull off a ‘Ritu Kumar look’ but sadly fails miserably.

    madam balan has left isha koppikar far behind……..takes the cake for me……hahahahahah!!!!!!! yuck…yuck!!!!!

    i feel bad for her. i think she probably has some ‘frenemy’ type person giving her bad fashion advice lurking somewhere in the background.

    Oh my Gawd!!!!! I can’t get over this.. this is worse than any wtthey I have seen on this site! U keep commenting on how her anarkalis are boring.. I think she should work within her limitations and stick to those

    Yuck..Yuck…and more Yuck..she is such a garbage….

  25. Pri at | | Reply

    2 beautiful pieces.. completely ruined.. thank you vidya for making sabyasachi look bad… terrible terrible.. sometimes.. you really need dad to tell you.. “you’re NOT leaving the house looking like that!”

  26. Ruch at | | Reply

    Well…if everybody dressed up with ‘perfect’ hair and ‘perfect’ dresses….the world would be a boring place….i like her sense of dressing..this time!….and this dress is well….different …i still think in a good way….she looks quirky….good quirky….just my opinion.

    Nooooooooo…why Vidya, WHY?

  28. Tvish at | | Reply

    The shoes seem to be traditional Dutch wooden shoes/clogs (klompen)

  29. SxD at | | Reply

    A simple plain black churi would have been enough to make her shine in that kurta!!!!!! Else give me a scissor, I can cut that kurta into a simple tank top! Hope she reads these comments so she gets some ideas!

    Hmmm come to think of it, 10yrs back, didn’t people wear smthg like this during bedtime?

  30. kaya at | | Reply

    What is wrong with you Vidya…?

    I really don’t know what to say about her anymore. I mean c’mon a plain white well-cut, well-fitted salwar kameez with no make up would be better than this!! Infact better than allot of things.

    Honestly I think she’s very insecure about dressing and I can’t fathom why… I mean… huh!

    Dark wash J Brands and an American Apparel V neck tee? Sigh. I dunno…

  31. RC at | | Reply

    She is such a DISASTER! What was she thinking before getting out in public looking like that?

  32. I'm a male at | | Reply

    Oh I love the look. To see a women decked up like this at a wine tasting or at the mall, would simply take my breath away. Yea the plumps were kinda stupid…..but on the whole Vidya Balan’s got personality!

    I don’t feel bad about not been able to buy designer clothes now !

  34. emer at | | Reply

    I am finding it hard to believe that she came up with the ensemble herself. Something tells me this is the work of a stylist and or designer and I certainly hope its not Sabya.
    Cant believe anyone would have the guts to put this together!
    I cant even give her marks for trying to move away from her trademark anarkalli, am almost wishing she was back in one.

  35. NotASheep at | | Reply

    I was just waiting for you guys to post this one. Everything else I feel has already been said.

  36. Shi at | | Reply

    I don’t think the ensemble is the problem. It’s the clunky shoes/clogs which ruin the look. Had she paired them with better footwear and jewelery with more drama to it, it could have been a cute kitschy Indian look. too bad it was a missed opportunity!

    in college i did a project on advertising that showed how companies sometimes use terrible ads on purpose because the incredulity/horror of them assures recall value for years to conme.

    case in point: vidya balan.

    Didn’t she get the worst dressed woman award about 2-3 years ago. ( I remember SRK and Saif handing her out that “Na-Real ” award ) . What is she trying to achieve now? Here are some suggestions

    “Worst dressed of a decade” ,
    “Desiner Faluda” (the one who messes the designers) ,

    Any new suggestions are welcome !

    1. koel at | | Reply

      Some more

      “1 Nar 100 anarkali” [from 1 Anar 100 bimar ]
      “Khichadi queen” [for making a khichadi of different designs]
      “Style ka dushman”

    I like that Vidya sticks to her dressing style and is comfortable with her dress sense. But I really like her, because she is the only A List Bollywood star who consistently prefers Indian designers over Western ones.

    There are not too many women like her in West obsessed Bollywood. I think she has a very Indian fashion sense, and if it has got her this far, why change it now?
