    I think the more traditional saris look better on her.

    Dont like the sari much especially the silver foil border… not after Tamannaah’s Raw Mango sari

    I think no one in the entire history of Bollywood might have worn a Manish Malhotra sari with that sleeve length blouse. :D So we can give that title for her. Among all others, her tailor has a relaxed job, same measurements for every blouse. No need to think about ideas.

      LOL!!!!

    Does she walk around in the house and sleep too with that arm crook? LOL. The yucky hair color and that dinchak sari, one word – TACKY. Glad that those tacky wedges are not visible. :P

      Hi Avani
      I have been noticing your comments on every single Vidya Balan post. Clearly you aren’t a big fan of her fashion sensibilities (infact I dont think anyone is) but I wonder why the need to be so vile and loathsome every single time. Worse, you sound condescending. I’m sure there is a better way to criticize someone who btw doesnt care about fashion at all (so not why she keeps getting featured on the blog) without attacking them. And if Vidya Balan does bother you so much, maybe you shouldn’t click on the post at all?

        Good Point Shruti!! Completely agree. Vidya’s and even Aishwarya’s posts attract some same chronic mean comments where the tone is overwhelmingly “Who gives a damn about these ladies! Who even cares about their horrific fashion sense!” and yet the very same users take time to comment exact same mean comments on every single post.

        Shruti, I am just giving my opinion. Pray tell me where are you ladies when the same things are said about many other celebrities are being called trashy. Why is that only Vidhya Balan gets a free pass and so much personal attacks on the commentator using anon names? The double standards are pretty high in here and anyway that is none of my concern. I don’t think you are one among them. But I definitely don’t go around contesting or defending any celebrity even if it’s my favorite just because some other commentator does not like the choice, well she or he has her opinion. Everyone has their own preference. Same applicability, if my comments bother you so much, you probably should ignore or scroll down over my comments, yeah? I will try to keep my vile in limits. ;)

          Avani: you are entitled to your opinion, like anyone else is, and it is the diversity of takes after all, that makes the forum interesting. and i definitely do not mean to pick on you, since others do this as well; but it would be nicer all around, if we can keep the discussion to the clothes and styling. too often it veers off into fat-shaming or complexion-shaming or class-shaming etc. it is sad. everyone else is already out to tell us what we should look like. why should we do it to ourselves?

        Agree with you wholeheartedly, Shruti and Aman. It’s better not to comment on posts that concern people who clearly don’t care for fashion, like Vidya. PnP, why feature her at all? She is beautiful and talented, but her clothes are not interesting. :)

        Avani, Sapphire etc., you often pick on Vidya, Madhuri, and Huma and your criticism is tangential to fashion.

          Oh no, don’t include Madhuri Dixit in that list. She is very decently dressed to be added in the list of desperately trying hard to be fashionistas of current lot. She may not be my favourite actress, but I don’t like her name dragging into this.

          1. jadine at |

            I was only saying that Ms Dixit gets crucified on this blog, along with the other two lovely ladies I mentioned.

            Personally I’m a fan of both Vidya and Madhuri, except for their style. :) I try to be constructive in my criticism, none of us are perfect!

          2. Sapphire at |

            Madhuri never tried to impress P&P or a section of visitors here who expect the same output from everyone. Which itself shows that she has a style of her own instead of copying others. I think she doesn’t even have an idea that this blog exists.

        P&P we should have an ability to search by name of user. some users are really search worthy :D

        I’m not sure where you get off attacking other commenters. she is as entitled to her opinion as anyone else.

      That arm posture is beginning to give me a nails on chalk board headache now. Which is a pity since she is such a beauty who has refused to confirm to the one size fits all interpretation of fashion and beauty.

    What’s not to like.

    If it was aishwarya rai everyone would have liked it ;)

    Erm… pass.

    i like the colour and the soft make-up. do not like the saree, though. the butterfly pattern looks like silver foil. but then, i do not really like manish malhotra clothes in general too.

  9. MK at | | Reply

    A very genuine question – How does one hold up a saree if she decides not to pleat it?

  10. LCoodly at | | Reply

    I love the color and the sari. Nicely done with a bohemiann touch.

  11. Shreya at | | Reply

    I think she looks beautiful. Love the way the clingy material accentuates her hourglass figure.

    1. saki at | | Reply

      agree. she’s a true hourglass. great shape to have, IMO.

      I love the saree (which i can rarely say for MM sarees). Its very elegant.

  12. slc at | | Reply

    Definitely not a fan of the saree itself. Not designer quality at all. but, Vidya wears the saree well.

  13. Sneha at | | Reply

    She’s such a beautiful lady but I just wish she would change things a bit.. the saree, the hair, the pose seems so dated. While I agree, this is her signature look, I would love to see her do a different look once in a way.

  14. Sam at | | Reply

    May be not a great saree…but totally loving her poise…

  15. colormenot at | | Reply

    The color suits her. The silver border brings down the look!
    I really wish she would try different blouses. Just a shorter arm length to start with ; )
    Then may be do the pleats once in a while!
    I know, I know! not going to happen!

    Hideous sari with that candy-wrapper border. Hope she was well paid for wearing it.

  17. Saya at | | Reply

    These sarees can be got in Artesia 4 for $100 even more cheaper I think in India.

  18. Deepika Anu at | | Reply

    I think, it must be really tough for a celebrity to ‘divulge’ from what they themselves defined and declared as their style.
    Even if, later they want to break free from their own definitions and want to grab a chic-sleek western dress and look fab like most ladies want.
    They might get bored but they have locked themselves in a situation where if they change much, they will be bothered much by the media.

    Everyone loves change (atleast in the clothes department) and all gals wanna try everything once :)

    I think she looks lovely. Glad she’s wearing a saree material that drapes well, as opposed to the silk ones which add bulk. Love the soft color as well.
