Sari Style

41

I kid you not. I have a picture of my Mom (from years ago) wearing a very similar sari and looking oh-so-beautiful. (Not to mention, I remember wishing every time I looked at the pic that I were as gorgeous as her.)

Just reminds me that classic silk saris like these are so timeless. The nostalgia might be making be biased but I can’t help but gush over how charming Vidya looks.

  1. she is dressed like an 80-year old. I don’t mind the sari but she needs to learn to accessorize! not sure what statement she’s trying to make but not making an impact on me in any positive way.

      • but she is a maami..a tam bram! and i think she is embracing that thought pretty well and not mingle in the crowd that hangs one boob out! sorry! but she is in that league..and i appreciate the way she embraces and has no qualms in admitting to it…

  4. she looks very pretty…but in a very girl next door kinda way.. go to any average south indian wedding, and you’ll find fifteen women dressed like this ..maybe even better. She does exude an effortless grace though..maybe her USP IS the ‘girl next door’ thing…like Jaya Bhaduri of yesteryears.

  5. I just died and went to heaven…..the sari is that stunning. Especially the purple on the pallu. People shouldn’t be complaining about the drape. I am south indian and I know how difficult it is to carry such heavy silk saris and still manage to look casual in them. She effortlessly seems to manage that and I love her sari style.

      • Being a tam-bram myself, i think silk sarees drape very well. She should try to pleat the pallu and not be sloppy.

        She can may be get few lessons from the south Indian actresses who were silk saree so impeccably… i don’t know how those ladies can wear it perfectly, hugging the curves the right way… oh so sexy!

  6. Nice saree, beautiful colours, I love bright coloured silk. She really needs to invest in some jewelery though, what is with those earrings shes wearing?! This is quite a simple saree what with the small border and all, imagine how great it would look with a really striking neck piece.

  7. Beautiful saree…but I am sure she doesn’t want to look older than her mom!!! It should be perked up with better hair and more grace. What a sloppy pose with folded hands and sari over the shoulder…

  8. just give it up! this is how she will always be! graceful whatever!
    she does this because she can’t do anything else :D
    cannot remember another bollywood heroine in recent times or even back to sridevi/madhuri times who would be dressed like this ALL THE TIME!!!

  9. What I feel is you people dislike Vidya .When she looks fine you have to crib about it and so after many comments which say they disagree with you ,you randomly praise her to make up.The sari is preety but she is not at all looking preety here.HHC is no more intresting.It has become more of a gossip corner.

  10. Love the combination, I am sure something wrong with her blouse – if you notice her hands are covered in every photograph :) not once she has dropped the pallu or is that the way she wanted it to be..

  11. The saree is beautiful but in a simple kind of way and, given this simplicity of design, Vidya should have worked on complimenting the saree differently. Her subtle earthy look is not working here (and actually makes her look drab) and her draping style is just too plain.

    That said, I commend the choice of saree for several reasons: (1) It is a welcome break away from the I-am-a-living-chandelier look cultivated by this generation of Bollywood celebs; (2) the saree gives a wonderful boost to the handloom industry which seems to have lost the patronage of the average metropolitan shopper, and (3) fashion choices such as this force young people to dig into their mom’s closets to bring out classic silks that look classy and distinctive and never go out of fashion.

    However, given that silk saree (is this a kanjeevaram?) has no motifs on the body and a rather thin border and pallu, Vidya could have teamed the saree with heavy traditional jewelry too give her look the “oomph” factor that is lacking here. I would have also liked to see a different drape (with a longer pallu), a pulled back hairstyle to frame that lovely face, and a more sophisticated makeup more befitting the evening event.

    What do you think?

  12. dunno y u guys r gushing at this look.
    the one thing she ALWAYS gets right with her clothes is how to look 10 years older.
    pretty, and yes she does look decent for someone way older than her.
