In Sabyasachi

Comment image 41


Natasha attended the British Asian Trust 2020 reception in London recently wearing a gold anarkali by Sabyasachi featuring a green velvet dupatta. While I can’t fault the finishing touches, I just don’t like the anarkali itself. I don’t mind a dull gold but this shade of gold and so much of it is something I am liking.

Do you like?

  1. Sure it’s a lot of gold to take in but it’s balanced by being kept simple with a solid pattern. Again though, if it wasn’t for the dupatta you wouldn’t distinguish between anarkali and gown. I also realized this is the first time ever I’ve seen Natasha smile, as in really smile like the middle pic. She should do so more often.

  2. Can someone plz explain this trend of no earrings with Indianwear? It makes the look bare and incomplete. Even if you happen to be wearing half of the world’s emerald reserves.

    • I disagree, with that much of gold, and that much of fabric, and that much of velvet , and that heavy chunky emerald necklace, doing away with earrings was the right thing to do. Also, I know its a lot of gold, but its dull gold and styled so beautifully. She looks very regal and chic. Also,she has worn such a clever makeup,which perfectly compliments the gold of her dress. Plus, she does not look like she is dressed for an Indian wedding!

  3. as much as I like the intent behind the look (uncut emeralds, velvet green drape and the gold lehenga) something about the look makes it less impactful than it should be…I think its the heavy, curtain like material which makes the anarkali look cheap rather than the luxurious look they were going for.

    • Totally agree.The hairstyle,emerald neckpiece&the dupatta are individually great but didnt like the anarkali atall.Texture,fit,colour.Specially this whole style is sooo repetitive.Sabya is my favourite designer but lately he is becoming very predictable.Craving for some novelty in his creations.

  4. Except the hair I love everything about the look. I think this hairstyle is sort of giving her a harsh look which was not needed here…Some other hairstyle would have given this look some sort of softness…

  5. My issue is with the gold color and necklace style here. Overall, she looks very put together but I’d rather that the color was not so cheap foil-ish and the necklace, more traditional Indian.

  6. I really think this was styling par excellence! she is in an indian outfit but such great fusion.. it is OTT just like her personal style but at the same time not garish or overwhelming. Looks exceptional!

  7. That stunning necklace deserved a better outfit. He anarkali is too shiny, almost lame/plasticky. And the dupatta contrasts badly, and does not go with the green of the baubles. Hair looks great.

  8. Agree with most of the comments. Natasha here looks nice. Also, this look reminds me to ask which designer Deepika was wearing while attending 25’th anniversary celebration of Prakash Padukone’s Badminton Academy in Bangalore, couple of days ago? It was a long black anarkali sort of bandgala. Tried finding out on insta but there was no post on on her account, neither on her stylist’s account or some of the designers she usually prefers for Indian wear.

  9. I did not realise this was Natasha until I read the caption once again! I actually do like the outfit although a pair of minimal studs would not have been out of place (as opposed to something chunky and maximalist).

  10. 1. The dress looks like a tent. ballooning at the bottom. 2. it looks like a cheap metallic tent, nothing designerish about it. 3. that velvet dupatta is no match for the tent, seems like it does not go with this outfit or the contemporary belt or her sleek pulled back hair. 4. that necklace is to die for. wish she had simply paired that necklace with a black dress and some stunning Blahniks… this is all too much to take in.

  11. She looks like pink.
    Also that whole gold cloth needs to have had a better more understated gold as it runs all over and looks cheap, shimmery. A lighter delicate gold tone would be ideal, to match with the green velvet shawl on it.
    Like this hair style on her, very different and rebel cool.
