In Sabyasachi

Comment image 52


At Sophie and Joe’s wedding, Priyanka opted for a pale pink Sabyasachi sari complete with pink roses in her hair. You won’t find us complaining. We loved!

  1. She looks positively radiant here. The simplicity of this well-curated look does the job. Just some flowers and a wrist watch for accessories.

  2. She wore a similar designed one I grey color at Isha ambani’s engagement … I like the color here, not the blouse design.

  3. Beautiful! Glad that she didn’t do the overcurated or heavy. While at it, how novel and refreshing that she doesn’t try to white wash herself!

    • I think Payal mentioned her InStyle article where PC said she would bring in elements of her culture into what she wears – fusion I guess. This is turning the dial all the way to the other side. She does look good.

  5. Love the saree and the flowers in the hair but dislike the blouse. Why cant she wear a simple/ elegant outfit for once? She makes the saree look tacky.

  6. Badly draped though. The side views and the back view show the inner folds lower than the outer. And doesn’t cover her shoes, as saris ideally should. Maybe she wanted to show off her heels.

  7. Lovely! I’d wear that saree in heartbeat.
    She’s revived so much flack recently (case in point the post below) that I’m just happy for the admiration coming her way :-)

  8. That’s a really pretty sari & very well curated – sans that particular style of blouse.

    Might be in the minority, but I don’t find the cultural dressing appropriate here.
    None of us would do it at our ethnically different friend’s/relative’s weddings.
    Did Sophie & clan not adapt to the dress codes at PCs wedding?
    They went with the themes and the bride had her day.

    • So true..! She stands out like a really odd man. A nice gown would be so appropriate, the saree is not good and definitely not for the occasion ( a catholic wedding)

      • I don’t agree with both of you at all. I am British, born and bred and of Indian origin, all of the British (Church and civil) weddings, christenings etc that I have attended I have always worn saris. Sure, I’ve checked that the bride’s okay with it beforehand and am pleased to say that they all have been. As is the etiquette, I’ve made sure that I don’t upstage the bride and I’ve received a lot of compliments, from young and not so young alike. Interestingly, the only one occasion I did experience negativity it was from a fellow British Asian that attended the same wedding in western attire.

        • You can wear what you like, when the general dress code (unsaid, unimposed) is something why not follow.. most other times she’s turning ‘western’ but in the ocassion that required so, chose to turn up in a saree, a saree with no styling merit.

          Also guys are are ready to blow up anything, just for play,

    • How do you know what the dress code was at Sophie’s wedding? And speak for yourself please- I, for one, would (and indeed, have) wear Indian clothing at an “ethnically different” friend’s wedding. Unless, of course there’s clear and explicit mention of a dress code in the invitation.

    • I live in the UK and have attended many of my friends’ church weddings – and I have always worn a saree. I’m proud to wear my Indian clothes and generally get a lot of compliments. I don’t get why it is not culturally appropriate – you should be able to wear what you want (as long as you don’t try to upstage the bride, which would be difficult anyway, unless you showed up in a white wedding gown!!!)

  9. Classy & beautiful. No need for curated looks when a minimalistic feminine style is all she needs to stand out. Not too much jewellery or bling on saree. This is perfect.

  10. Those new Sabya organdy sarees are not draping well. The light color is too transparent and showing all the inner folds, saree not falling well. That shade of pink is not her color or for that matter not for many indians. Alia wore a same is red, was gorgeous. Blouse and that hair not doing her any favors.

    • This shade of pink is not for many Indians? Never before heard of a colour being deemed inappropriate for an entire country. And a similar sari is gorgeous on a lighter skinned actress? Good God. Racist/colorist much?

      • Maybe PC should do an 8 week course of White and Bleachy and ask Sophie to re-organize her wedding. That way, White and Bleachy can get a new commercial, and PC will be a better fit as an Indian for that shade of pink.

        • “White and bleachy?” “Better fit as an Indian for that shade of pink”
          What kind of racist / colorist human being are you? Anybody can wear whatever color they wish to! Prianka looks stunning!
          Shame on you!

            • Haha ok, joke is on me then! Hope the minister will accept my apology :)
              But the whole previous comment ” that shade of pink is not her color” had me apoplectic!
              So missed the sarcasm in the subsequent comment! Peace out!

          • I apologize for the Minister. He has a twisted sense of humor. He likes to take racist statements such as those to which he replied and twist them further to reveal the outrageous nature of the comment to which he is replying. Maybe his humor was lost on you. He likes to ‘read’, ‘shade’ and ‘sass’ people. The Minister will not listen to my appeals to tone it down. I am afraid he is a bit of a character. Until then please attempt to understand how sarcasm, humor and shade works before flying into a rage.

      • What drama man! The color isn’t flattering on her- that’s all there is to it. What if Nicole Kidman wore a shade not becoming on her? It can happen! There is nothing racist in saying certain colors & certain skin tones don’t go well together! Ppl have strange internal complexes that turn every comment into a personal attack.

        • Read the sentence in that comment carefully. “That shade of pink is not her color or for that matter not for many indians.” Try saying those words to certain races. Ppl have strange internal complexes that they are conditioned to turn a blind eye to comments that are problematic. That too in a “fairness” obsessed country like India.

    • Do let us know which colours would work for dark-skinned Indians. Maybe the cultural ambassadors of India and African nations should get together to ban pink. P&P, what exactly do you do in the “your comment is awaiting moderation” step?

      • Have you heard of colour theory? Skin Undertone (NOT skin colour) effecting the hue, tint, tone and shade of colours that looks good? Individual colour palettes? In my experience it is useful to Indians too, of all kinds.

    • TBH, I didn’t know her actual skin color at all. She looks so whitewashed in all pics to-date. This is the first time I’m paying attention to it since the pink contrasts the skin and highlights it (all good things and in a good way, please don’t come at me with your pitchforks).
      I’m just curious how do they ensure their limbs are also whitewashed in all other pics? Makeup everywhere?

    • I don’t see the point of all the venom against this comment. In my opinion, PC doesn’t look the greatest here. Maybe it’s the color of the saree or the makeup or hairdo or all of it together.. somehow it’s coming together as a dated look. Yes there are colors that people dazzle in and there are colors that brings down a look and this I believe is once such color on PC.

  11. Completely disagree – this color looks great on her. We really need to get out of this colorism mindset, it’s the 21st century lol. And fyi, Indians come in many different shades so please don’t stereotype us. You never hear people saying this shade is not for white people lol.

  12. LOVE the saree and HAATEE the blouse.
    Yeah, looks like she reads PnP and wore a saree to silence the critics.
    That said, I don’t like the styling…the flower in the hair looks a bit strange with all the hair streaming down her sides.
    That last picture is very bad…just bad timing I guess.

  13. I don’t knkw. I’m not liking this look and I can’t pinpoint why. The sari is pretty a d I lkke the colour, is it her hair? The makeup? Do I not like this shade of pink on her? I definitely don’t like the blouse. I think it’s the hair- it’s giving a matronly vibe to the whole look.

  14. Wow to those replies on my comment of that shade of pink is not for MANY indians. Why do we have to be politically correct all the time. I am sick of these liberal outrages. Accept for what it is. Everyone has an opinion. That is what this comment section is for. If you dont agree so be it. But calling me racist is uncalled for. Suhasini take a chill pill, need some introspection. Peace out.
