    She is back! She owns the saree and comes out looking her very best wearing one. This is a perfect 10 for me. I love that she has experimented a bit with the neckline of the blouse.

    Prey tell how this is taking chances? She looks alright. Nothing extraordinary. She’s a fine actress-taking chances with her attire however if anything is usually detrimental in her case.

    Just perfect! Would not change it. So chic yet so Indian!!

    Agree with you she is back in her element..

    Yes Vidya! She needs to always bring it like she has here. The different hairdo really elevates the look.

    Which airline is she hostess for?

    1. Rana at | | Reply

      +1. Only because she is wearing a sari doesn’t mean she looks good. I mean she looks good but in an indian flight attendant way/or as a politician. This sari is not flattering her in any way, I find the design too severe.

    I love it ! She looks amazing !!! She makes sarees look the best and sarees make her look the best.

    Wow, she makes the saree look Hollywoodish! She is the Angelina Jolie of saree promotion…:)

      It is very wrong to compare her to Angelina Jolie !

    She does look nice. But the draping of the pallu is really severe. She needed to soften it up a bit. The silk fabric is soft and would not have added bulk if she had not pleated the pallu. But hair, make-up and jewelry is perfect.

    The best I’ve seen her look in recent times! She looks amazing! Methinks she should play the role of a politician in Hindi movie wearing such sarees :D

    Air hostess look…considering her off late tacky looks its better…but it reminds me of airlines

    Yay! VB is back! She may or may not look like an Indian airline crew (please dont say air hostess, its dated and sexist) but shes made an effort. This also helps soothe the Anand Kabra nightmare.

      What’s sexist about air hostess? It’s air steward and air stewardess or hostess. It really gets my goat when so called feminists start waging unnecessary wars against the minutia of the English language, for no apparent reason. Rant over.

    2. Rana at | | Reply

      Its neither dated nor sexist. Different countries have different vocabulary. In india it is air hostess.

    how, how HOW is this a designer sari?! WTF?

    1. Prisha at | | Reply

      I agree ! What’s designer about it?? Absolutely uncreative!!

    She does not look like an air hostess albeit a glamourised hospital ayah she sure does. Sorry, but the sari is of the same design.
    That said, it suits her face and proportions better hence its good i guess.

    this is one of her better looks..neck up i think she looks nice..not a fan of the outfit .. let’s hope you take it up from here

    Ugh sari with a border like a pageant sash. Designers think about your border width before “designing”. Like the blouse. Huge improvement from tight blouse yet about to fall off shoulder style she favours.

  18. reekmr at | | Reply

    She should stop wearing saree’s with such broad borders. Otherwise neck up she looks gorgeous.

  19. eclat at | | Reply

    Oh no… she reminds me of a particularly strict principal at my old school that i used to fall foul off regularly.

  20. Senorita at | | Reply

    Man. The classism here is incredible. So she looks like a matron, an ayah, an airline stewardess, a politician because she’s wearing a saree pleated and pinned? These people are human too, people!

    1. dex at | | Reply

      exactly my thoughts !!!!

    2. from-chitown at | | Reply

      I agree. There is constructive criticism and then there is contempt. I am really surprised some of these comments actually make it to the site without getting moderated.
      Yes, the saree is too severe for her. But the yellow color looks very cheerful near her face.

      Agree! A lot of preconceived notions on display here!

    4. Nav at | | Reply

      Agreed! As if it is worst thing to look like a woman who holds her own. Women cry about the patriarchal society all the time but also hate of other women (based on idiotic superficial standards), instead of empowering them. Vidya looks so fine! I love it!

    5. Gayatri at | | Reply

      Exactly, and this type of criticism is rampant across the blog, across the celebrities. Ayah, Aunty, Clown, Bai, Air Hostess are just few of them. It’s pathetic that it is going unchecked, even if it is just a populist policy.

  21. np at | | Reply

    i am glad she is experimenting…however, on anyone else it would have looked stylish but on her this particular outfit gives me a very uniform, school principal type vibes…

  22. thatgirlinpink at | | Reply

    Oops! I think she thought she was on her way to an audition for the role of Indira Gandhi. What a mix-up!

  23. arpitha at | | Reply

    neck up she looks good. The blouse doesn’t look good with the saree, and the saree itself is meh.

  24. Adara at | | Reply

    Air hostess meets hospital ayah! Best part of this look we can’t see her fugly shoes. :D

  25. Ashes of Roses at | | Reply

    Is it just me or doesn’t she look like the quintessential female advocate/judge?. Just that her saree is not white and she is missing a white coat. She looks lovely neck up.

    This in interesting in so much that we have not seen vidya do a share like this. She looks Nice. Reminds me of my school principal. A very elegant lady. For vidya this look is rather severe. Though I think it’s a nice change. As long as it’s a one-off look, I don’t mind

  27. shyba at | | Reply

    Iam on the fence!!!

    she has worn saree better than this before.

  28. Stylista at | | Reply

    I hate the blouse i mean its boring and so covered. No doubts she is lookn elegant but that blouse is making her look 10 years older. Jazz it up grl

  29. chez at | | Reply

    This only looks this good because of a long break between when we saw her in a saree. This saree is so average looking, its a crime to call it designer. The saree drape is completely off.

  30. Prisha at | | Reply

    Payal singhal is a copy cat designer. She has no distinct style of her own, she is constantly ” Inspired” by other designers. I guess she is good friends with the stylists, otherwise why would any one dress out to be air hostess????

  31. shwetha at | | Reply

    Unless she’s campaigning for a political party, this saree SHOULD NOT BE WORN. I am getting a severe Mayawathi vibe here, and I do not mean that in a good way

    1. Gayatri at | | Reply

      FYI, It is Ms. Mayawati and not Mayawathi and she never wears a Saree. I belong to U.P. and I am better informed about the achievements of the lady you are so casually remarking about. Don’t judge people by their appearance until and unless they are on this blog.

      1. bumblebee at | | Reply

        It’s a proper noun and misspellings are no great disaster. You say Shweta, she spells Shwetha. Easilhy done.
        Just because you are from somewhere, it don’t mean you are an authority on the local politicians. I should be able to tell you all about the Tories and Lib-Dems. Sadly, I cannot Dhavid Cameroon from Maggie Snatcher. Or Jayalalithaaaaargh from Karunanidhieeye.
        She wasn’t commenting on Maya’s political moves as much as she was about her sartorial choices. It’s should be okay, I assume.

        1. Gayatri at | | Reply

          When did I say Shweta? For me too, the commentator is Shwetha. I know what I speak. Besides, do we know no other way of criticizing except drawing comparisons? It really gets overboard when commentators pulls in the people from sphere outside this blog. A national leader whose sartorial sense should not be subjected to any policing because that is not her forte. Let us just spare them this policing and let them concentrate on more relevant issues indeed, while we spend our time playing comment-comment on HHC.

    This is the best she’s looked in a long time. Especially like that bracelet!

    Is she channeling her inner Indira Gandhi? She could break into “tere bina zindagi se koi…shikwa toh nahin…” any minute.
