In Manish Malhotra

Comment image 51

Would love for just once to see Shilpa Shetty in a not-so-in-your-face-sexy sari. Just once. But then again, we might also be just a bit jealous of that bod of hers!

    Color – B
    Pallu on one side – B (don’t dig the pose either)
    makeup – A
    Hair – A
    overall A+ (She is pulling off an average saree vey well)

  2. oh my god…there is nothing this woman cannot pull off, her body is just insane, and looking very pretty here too. would like to see more of such soft looks on her. kudos!

  3. I agree! She sometimes tries too hard to show off her style and her body. Although I still think she’s close to perfection personified when it comes to style.

  4. i don’t think she is trying too hard, she definitely has style, but she has on and off days. ii feel that this sari in particular is pretty blah looking. there is nothing too spectacular about it. i really liked her emerald green top and black pants on the last day of the hdil fashion week though. that outfit goes to show that she doesn’t just try too hard, she actually does have good taste, even if it might be inconsistent.

  5. Okay, this girl is really stylish, I am jealous of her height and excellent body type, she is it, better than Aishwrya and the rest of them, anything that she wears suits her to the T and she knows what to wear where to wear and how to wear cloths

  6. okie.. i know everyone here thinks shilpa looks great in a sari, but I really feel that she doesn’t have the ideal figure for a sari, and that she actually doesn’t look sexy in a sari, the way Ash does for instance (could be because of no hips) – the models look gorgeous here!!

  7. When it comes to Shilpa Shetty, I can’t see the clothes, only that AWESOME silhouette. She has got the best body that I’ve ever seen, western eastern or alien. Period.

  8. eh….dont like the saree…the blouse is nice. Hate the one-boob thing as always…but the blouse is soooo purrrtyyy!! Whats a girl to do…??? LOL

    PS: She has truly got a smokin’ body!!

  9. whats wrong with the 2nd pic? why is her hip completely to one side and her body to another??

    i loved her in it on big boss and think she was looking great, tho not a big fan of the color

  10. omg..ugly ugly ugly sari…n wats wid the pose on the rite….some prob wid her shoulders…duno lookin weird in the pic on the rite…she looks the same always…borin..tryin to hard…doin everythin wy to much..over expreesion over smiles…

  11. shilpa rocks the bling. she definitely is saree material(no pun intended!) i truly suspect a twinkle insider in the reader comments. why twinkle is lavished with compliments, i could never fathom. now with shilpa defamed, i definitely think twinkletoes is also twinklefingers quickly clacking on the keys.

  12. I am just too traditional when it comes to saree. Agreed Shipa has a great body… but I seriously doubt covering the bust would take any sexiness away. It will just add to it.
    So my advise to Shilpa, please please please don’t start this “show your blouse off” trend and take the grace away from the most sophisticated Indian ensemble.

  13. Hey @veenapani,

    I think it is wrong to assume that all of us are Twinkle insiders because I know that I am just a middle class , crocks wearing woman who does not have any bollywood connections. I like what I like and write about it. Twinkle is really making affordable clothing look a million bucks wit right accessories and makeup and people love that.

  14. I actually like how she has redefined the concept of how a saree can be sexy to suit modern tastes…don’t get me wrong, of course there is no comparison with the beautiful traditional way to wear a saree, but in an era of endless item numbers, Bollywood heroines in extremely skimpy skirts and shirts (anybody seen Priyanka in Dostana???), endless blonde highlighting of hair,etc. etc. I think Shilpa should be given credit for wearing sarees very, very often (including in her international appearances where she gracefully stands out in her Indian outfits…Ash, are you listening?), albeit with her own sexy twist to it…but hey, looking at the trend of extreme skin show in bollywood, I feel she has at least combined the saree with changing times, sticking to her guns in her own way!

  15. All I see is someone who looks surgically enhanced. The hair is always boring and the face has the same look all the time – permanently arched brows, caked on makeup, etc. Boring!

    She has a great body but the ‘IT’ factor is missing.

  16. Well said, Veenapani! That has been my gut feeling as well. I love this website, but I think Twinkle is treated with kid gloves in the readerfeedback section. Shilpa is in her own way a stand-out. Her face may not be the kya dekhte ho, surat tumhari types. She is the official BlingQueen, and is drop dead gorgeous as a package. You simply cannot ignore this one, more the bling, the better she can carry it off. Even the chamku manish malhotra ensemble takes a different dimension when Shilpa wears it. Imagine Twinkle doing so…it will be like Jaya BachChan doing a Rekha. On the other hand, I can picture a lowly clingy white sari on Shilpa, and gosh, she will need no accessorizing to carry that off either.Just to be fair here….

  17. Hey ladies,

    Why are we comparing the 2 beautiful women of bollywood? How does Rekha-Jaya equation come in here? I feel that some people are trying to bring up past Akshay-Shilpa affair in innocent comments that other people have about Twinke or Shilpa’s clothes. I think all the parties are happy in their present relationships and it is time for us also to get over it and just comment on the clothes and makeup and style of the current picture that P&P post.

    Last time I checked – This was a fashion blog .

  18. i think the fact that Twinkle isnt surgically enhanced makes all the diff. both have style and you cant compare that. but one has has help from a scalpel and naturally if you’ve gone under the knife the expectations rise. you cant be surgically enhanced and still look like something the cat dragged in!

    that said – i love the blouse. the saree is very common in delhi. but i do believe the saree should be worn the way its meant to. not in the half seductive one breast popping out way. it just takes away from it.

  19. I love it when I read these comments. Prolly some Twinkle insider really is there. These comments are about fashon, read closely. It just is curious to see Twinkle glorified for something she is not. Some folks come up in arms here. She is vanilla in dressing and acting. The posts have all been about her sense of dressing as well as others on the blog. Gauri, Shilpa, and Twinkle. Comparisons will crop up. May all be happy in their relationships. Keep the chucking comments, fashion should not be taken too seriously.

  20. @veenapani, lol! twinkletoes clacking on the keys with twinklefingers…sneaky. LOve it! oh yes, before someone gets riled, twinkle is a good dresser. she does don some expensive items as well. let us not pretend she is a common gal’s zindabad!

  21. Dear Mirina/ Desibuff/ saltpepper/ veenapani/ hostesstwinkies (All with the same IP)

    Lets not instigate drama where there is none to be had, everyone is entitled to an opinion (and everyone’s opinion is welcome)! Best thing about fashion/style/taste is that its so subjective!

    Lets play nice!

  22. Adios to HHC! We are a group of desidorm gals, sharing one computer. We all feel that Twinkle is a big deal on this site. No one has been harsh to her, it is just that you guys prop her up as if she were a icongoddess. we are common gals, and we like some glamour. we visit your website to enjoy the glitz, glamour and the class. it is not classy to assume things and attack privacy. we are disappointed. Adios!

  23. Veenapani

    We get a lot of posters who to strengthen their point of view keep posting under various aliases, usually in situations that stray away from the point in question (read the about us section)!! So you can understand that we are wary. No one is attacking anything!

    As for Twinkle being a big deal on this site, if we like something, we post that, if we don’t like something, we post that too. Its a two way street. We remember the time when everyone accused us of being Vidya haters, but then the last few posts, we’ve had only good things to say about it! So, yeah… we try being as impartial as we can.

    You are welcome to your opinion. As are others. (Again, please read the about section)

    Hope to see you around!


  24. woah.. what a drama again..

    both shilpa and twinkle has their own style.. their on career path and their own personalities.. and they dress according to that..

  25. & they both have their own paths..
    some like bling and some don’t
    but it does not make anyone bad dresser..
    i would go with twinkle look for meetings..and lucheons.. and shipa look for weddings”)

  26. Veenapani, what you said is the most absurd thing I’ve heard (other than listening to Palin)… PnP are not paying any of us to post here… if most readers like Twinkle’s style, or Shilpa’,s or either/neither, that’s their individual perspective.. this blog is not intended to promote or diss any particular celebrity … noone’s propping anyone up either.. now, what was your point again?

  27. Wow…pleaaasee Twinkle gets lavished with praises coz she always makes it work. Never OTT, always to the point dressing. Here, Shilpa looks good as well.

  28. all I can say is EW…I’m suprised by come of the positve reactions
    I don’t think she can pull of a sari becasue she has NO HIPS…a sari looks best on an hour glass (or even pear shaped) figure
    too much bling too, and that second pic is weiiiird

  29. Didn’t we see Kareena in the same sari as 2nd row, 1st column? I think the saris are all nice but I don’t like the colour. Beige is nice and safe, it can be easily accessorized with a funky blouse (like Shilpa) but I like to see more combinations of contrasting colours in a sari.

    I agree with most of the gals here. I long to see women drape saris in the normal way. Another girl who rocks the sari (besides Shilpa) is Katrina!

  30. If anyone has watched her on this show, they’d know why I don’t like her. There’s just so much of powder based foundation on her face that it just looks really weird.. and her upper lip has a funny greenish tinge!
    Has anyone noticed how she hosts the show? Unbearable! Laughs too loud.. mouth oh-so-wide open! When she tries to act serious… it completely fails! Weird!
