Doing Black And Red

Comment image 73


Black and red seemed to be the theme of this press meet with the main protaganists of the movie ‘My Name Is Khan’ wearing the two colors. SRK looked quite dapper in his suit but as gorgeous as Kajol looked, the stripes in her Manish Malhotra sari didn’t flatter her. A non-sheer black one would have been oh-so-fab.

  1. Kajol make me feel so good about my “Tond” (tummy), We don’t need to suck in our tond to make it look toned (6 pack) for the pictures and still look like a million bucks isn’t it…

    Love her makeup as well…

      • yes, she looks like a million bucks..so neat! like the pulled back hair, big earings. although the saree cud have been better, i really dont mind the red and black one. heroine in her 30s and hero in his 40s still going strong!! muah!

        • Omgoshh they all look so good! I think focusing on the stripes is a bit nit picky for this one.. the overall impression when you first look is WOW… anything else is nit picky lol. They look great, I think Kajol looks very pretty and her body looks great in the sari as well. Agreed.

  2. I spend so much time commenting and no one ever reads it?? Black stripe saree with velvet border?? My last attempt, can i have MM’s email address?

    • imagine if mm reads this blog…he’s laughing all the way to the bank.

      mm responds in a mocking tone “you people can criticize me all you want. i am invincible. and i’ll be dressing all of b’wood till my last breath”.

      ‘shudder’ from us all.

      • Manish Malhotra is not merely the name of a designer but a virus that has singlehandedly corrupted the sensibilities of not just Bollywood but the Pakistani fashion scene as well. While a great many local designers are infinitely more creative and talented, the general public gets all starry eyed over bollywood fashion. As a result blindingly blingy, OTT clothing has been in vogue for the last half decade or so. Am actually quite nauseated just imagining the proliferation of his velvet fetish across the border. God help us all!
        As for Kajol, she can’t be made to dress up decently even if someone puts a gun to her head.

        • I so so agree with all the comments above ??
          Like how does MM qualify as a designer ?/ and moreover, just why the hell do all of them run to him for Indian wear is beyond me .. he is single handedly responsible for the disappearance of tarditional Indian weaves / embroderies / handlooms from our movies .. and it makes a huge impact .. today all you see in the Indian markets is blingy / chiffon-y saris !!
          He’s laughing all the way to the bank by making a fool out of this entire Bolly brigade!!!

          • i say bring back our beautiful heritage` traditional Indian weaves / embroderies / handlooms ! the history and design behind it is a catergory of its own.

            MM’s creations are just tardy and kitz looking..

    • and i dont know what the fuss about velvet is all about..here in Us, american women wear it for christmas parties every year. arent they supposed to be rich people’s fabric – velvet, furs, lambswool ?!

      Reply
      • I am not attending that christmas party! just kidding!
        I know what u mean but it is mostly the oldies who have not thrown their velvet tops. i havent seen young ones wearing them in past many(many) years. and as for in India esp mumbai it is never that cold to make velvet a trend that is why a lot of people find it weird.

  3. They look good. Despite the awful saree, Kajol looks good. Like her neck-up.
    Why does MM call himself a designer again? Esp after seeing the Chanderi black saree on Kareena just yesterday, this hurts.
    MM formula – take a cheap looking saree, put some velvet border to it. Is that a velvet blouse as well?
    What is the red from Shahrukh’s pocket? Just wondering.

  4. so my story was that 7 years back i wore my self designed sheer chiffon (mustard in color & minimal self print )sari with black valvet border ( typical of MM’s work) with black valvet blouse only to get a public flak from everyone including my husband and so many bad compliments about my taste in clothing , i discarded that sari then.
    But how could MM get easily get away and is conidered a famous designer? who’s making millions

    • and so i wore velvet blouses too with my silk sarees since i bought them ina hurry and didnt get time to stitch my blouses. they looked back then almost 10 yrs ago. For now, i do have a velvet top which i wear for evenings or parties. its very much back in trend now. so good for manish malhotra!

  5. Love the combination of black and red; it exudes understated elegance and reminds me of the Obamas on election night. So props for the combination and the coordination between SRK and Kajol.
    But (yes there always is a but) I don’t think she’s beautiful enough to wear her hair like that. Something less severe would be so much more flattering.

  6. REALLY UGLY sari
    he’s given velvet a bad name
    also, velvet NEVER pictures well, especially with the kind of lighting that have at Indian events
    LOVE SRK’s tie!

  7. Is velvet so in again?i hate the garment and its really uncomfortable in the heat..
    Red n black is a great combo,could have been so much better.theres no creativity here,even i could have made this πŸ˜›
    Kajol looks good,she doesnt give a damn to clothes..and SRK as usual my favourite,and somebody pls say a thing or 2 about karan also :P,noone seems to b noticing him at all..tee hee

  8. is it only me that thinks kajol’s blouse at the front looks like its actually the the back of the blouse…..its 3 inches ! How come she is not spilling out – she is not exactly flat-chested…

  9. kajol is beautiful..but y is she flaunting her paunch.she looks two months pregnant in 2nd pic & that velvet blouse is so hideous.. saree looks like sheer curtains.

  10. There she goes again…one more day one more poor choice of saree selection….SIGH !!!
    I thought exposing midriff is done only in movies ?? maybe not

  11. Are those plastic straws hanging out of SRK’s jacket pocket? Another over-hyped MM creation… can we even call it creation? I see no creativity in it! Shame.

  12. Kajol desperately needs a wordrobe adviser..she seems to be stuck in 80s..her jewelry her cloths her shoes and bags and even hair style and make up is dated…as for khan the suit is suiting him perfectly but what that two red lines hanging from his pocket

  13. can’t look past the horizontal stripes on the sari. Am no designer but even I know horizontal stripes make one look fat, frumpy and very non cool. I remember a similar chooridar worn by Vidya Balan which ended up ruining the whole look.

  14. Eeeeks, but somehow, I think Kajol is not just about her clothes.. her personality shines through. I think SRKs suit is a bit ill fitting. Karan Johar is the most dapper one, of all 3

  15. kajol sari is an eye sore. the lady never get it right and srk never liked nor will i. look like a 5 y child in his paa’s suit. again the movie may be a trash they will make it work for srk-kajol sake

  16. Its time to boycott Manish Madhotra and switch to Sabyasachi. Bollywood please sit up and take a look at how this humble guy revives and makes Indian fabrics and materials look so gorgeous….

  17. kajol would look great if she hired a good stylist. i hate the velvet. she’s lucky she has such a vibrant personality that can shine through fashion disasters.

    Reply
  18. Isnt it the same color combination that Aishwarya wore to Paa premiere.
    And she had velvet border or blouse too and her saree was sheer too.

    I like kajol even if she is ugliest-dressed.I am biased.
    She doest bother about fashion or showing herself.And her beautiful and content smile is her biggest asset.

  19. SRK looks particularily “ponchy” in this suit…has he put on weight around the middle? It doesn’t fit right…is it karan’s design?
