The Beige Effect

Comment image 39

While gowns dominated this years Filmfare awards, another dominant trend on the red carpet was the color beige.

We saw Raima, Deepika and Rekha wear beige colored saris and we thought each wore her sari well. Yes, even Rekha, because anything would have been an upgrade compared to the velvet mess we last saw her in! Anushka also was an upgrade with her Gaurav Gupta gown and Vidya was as predictable as can be in yet another anarkali silhouette.

While my favorite belle in beige was Deepika, who had just the right amount of bling and beige, who was yours?

P.S. You can see more of our review of the ladies on our MTV India column here.

  1. I didn’t know it was Vidya Balan at the right end, she looks sizzling hot. Keep it up woman, happy for you. Looks like Rekha listened to us in regards to sari, not quite there, but lookin her gorgeous self.

  2. All the ladies look fine. Actually I am really liking Vidya here. She looks fresh and chic. The photo of Deepika is not very clear.

  3. I do not get Rekha’s hair here and the sindoor (for whatever reason she puts it). Deepika’s and Rekha’s sarees are both a slight too blingy or shiny and beige for me to like. I like Raima’s sari which seems a bit wearable but find something missing in the overall look. In the end I have to say that I find it a slight bit tough that Vidya acctually looked fantastic and the best of all beige women here. Her look I agree was definitely predictable but certainly one of the best anarkali’s she has been seen in. Also, her hair looked nice.. not bad footwear and decent earrings

  4. I wonder how can somebody pick Deepika based on this picture. unless you are voting based on who has their sari’s pallu tied in the most traditional way.

  5. vidya has lost a lot of weight and looks great, the hair, make up, outfit, shoes all compliment each other. the orange disaster from the last year FF award has hopefully been archived.

  6. um…how is Deepika winning?
    anyways I’m GLAD to see this because it definitely reflects the trend on international runways 😀
    …I have to give it to Vidya, sure it’s the safe choice for her- but she does it over and over again for a reason, she looks FAB. I love her hair and makeup too
    Remember last year guys?! The improvement itself is worth praising

  7. Vidya looks the best – the best I have seen her look ina long time – she is glowing. Rekha – hmmm said it before will say it again – timewarp! yeah I know she is like a national icon etc etc yawn but the woman needs to move on … hint hint

  8. Beige is such a boring colour, but Deepika looks good from what can be seen, but Rekha somehow doesn’t seem like Rekha in this chamak chamak number.

  9. How do these ladies keep their Pallus so neat.Is this is a new way of pinning up the pallu?
    Love Deepika & Raima’s sarees & Vidya also looks so nice.
    I don’t like Anushka & Rekha here.

  10. Deepika’s sari is gorgeous so she gets my vote!

    but wow that’s a fairly toned down look by rekha’s standard isn’t it

    raima’s is also pretty…and while vidya looks beautiful her dress is oh-so-boring and not party appropriate

  11. Deepike looks nice of whatever u can make out frm the blurry picture!!
    P&p, could u add a full length or a clearer picture of deepika plss…thanx

  12. My vote goes to rekha because she looks beautiful here as usual and she has lost sooo much weight. Have you all noticed that amongst the 5 of them she is the only one over 55 yrs and the rest are under 25 yrs old that alone is a huge victory for rekha, sorry to the critics of rekha the lady has again stolen the show , thanks to you.

  13. Vidya looks pretty and fresh. But I have seen some other pics of Deepika at the event, and she looked stunning in the beige saree. So my vote goes to her. Raima looks lovely as well, very wearable saree.

  14. 1-deepika- she looks good ans carries it off well

    2- Rekha- she’s stunning and for a lady her age…thats amazing!

    3-Vidya- don’t care much for the design on the anarkali but deffo think she looks really good, and she’s lost sooo much weight…

    4- raima- everythings good, save the hair! it looks messy

    5- Ansushka- i really do not like that gown! i don’t understand what was being attempted.

  15. @ zack

    are vidya and raima really under 25 -w ith the exception of anushka none of the other including deepika look under 25…especially vidya

  16. I feel soory for Anushka ….nobody has commented on her…so while I like Raima’s sari the best…blingy but not too blingy unlike Rekha’s and Deepikas. Anushka’s also looks decent given her past appearances

  17. LOL @ Rubywoo and Zack

    Vidya is (shocking) only 27 and Raima (shocking) is 29!!
    I would have thought it was the other way round, looks can be decieving!

  18. I like Deepika and Raima.
    What’s up with Rekha’s sindoor?? When’d she get married??
    There’s no way Vidya Balan is 27! Her age is different most sites.. she’s gotta be atleast 30.

  19. Vidya is definitely past 30. Her date of birth keeps changing on wikipedia so I wouldn’t go by that.I’m sure her male fans want her to be younger and the only way they can do it is through wikipedia. Even Bipasha Basu, who was my 34 year old cousin’s senior, has her DOB listed as 1979 on many websites.

  20. I think most bollywood starlets lie about their age -going by the fact that most claim to be in their early/ mid twenties yet have been in the industry for eons – and very few were in their teens when they started out.

  21. Deepika’s saree looks lovely… I personally like the shimmer (shine?) … Vidya looks nice.. that’s it, nice… plain, bland, nice… Anushka – really? Seriously? … Raima is again, nice… Rekha gets on my nerves now… pleae can I say that an assortment of kanjeevarams, the same make up since 1982 and tonnes and tonnes of jewellery does not a style diva make… I’d rather have a Kiron Kher who at least mizes it up wihtin the framework of her chosen look… and what is with that Sindoor???? Have we really run out of ways to attract attention now?

  22. @Annie I’m shocked about Bipasha becuase she really does say she is 30. Her DOB according to her is Jan 1979. And Vidya DOB offcially is 1978, un offically who knows. Its hard to understand cause a lot of these stars claim to be only 15-18 when they started out but hell I never looke like that when I was 16.

  23. wat a copycat’s this womwn above, i can remember well wen kareena wore a beautiful sari in flimfare awards 2008. they all coping her, she looks the best…sori gals not that gud as kk
