Sari Style

At her movie’s success meet and pre-release event, Pallavi was seen wearing handloom saris from Label Earthen and Ekaya paired with jhumkis. She looked lovely in both!

  1. Not big in the sarees but I love the simplicity and grace of the lady in the saree. Reminded me of late 90s when these (sarees/suits) were our best dresses..

    • Agree word by word!! Not much into sarees but like sticking to classic look like above, whenever I wear one. No silly take on sarees! And, yes miss the simplicity of 90’s.

  2. Sweet regular gal.

    Note to women in sarees and dressing tip in general:

    Do keep to a finished look esp with hair and makeup and shoes. When dealing with an incredibly clean and sophisticared lines of the Indian saree – do not drop the ball by leaving “just outta the shower” or unfinished hair.
    Also, basic skin finish. Indian eye and lip look works just fine – so pic on the right a tad better.

    If you wanna be a public figure/career – fix that hair, makeup and the gonzo, Konkona Sen waitstaff smile and posing.

    Even the humblest and simplest, homely (words like these are excuses not to excel in fields that demand aesthetic excellence) Indian classic music maestros have their act together…time to up your game lady.

    • I agree. I wish she did her hair more often and used regular make up atleast. I find it weird when people use comparison always to describe how pretty she is. She’s beautiful in her own way and not by virtue or not using too much make up or not following some trends or in comparison to others

    • No please! All the “finished” hair and makeup a la 2020s are generally horrible and simply not right for many kinds of sarees. These certainly DO NOT require it. No Indian handloom/natural fabric saree, which relies on texture and fluidity, requires the styling you suggest and no way does it “up” any game. Please leave it for MM BW sarees.

      On the sarees the Label Earthen one is pretty. Sai Pallavi has a natural charm.

      PS: I thought the word “homely” was strictly confined to matrimonial columns!!!

    • Patronising much? She looks lovely, has draped her sarees beautifully and her hair looks amazing. And oh, this “sweet regular gal” is a doctor too.

      Just to be clear, you ain’t Joan Rivers girl. This is a fun blog.

    • It’s possible you have no idea of the traditional dressing in various parts of India. All the women of Kerala wear their sarees with just washed, loosely tied hair, and each one of them looks gorgeous that way. Keep your western uptight ideas to yourself.

      • Western uptight ideas? Where’d that come from? And why is the example of how Kerala women dress even relevant here? You can’t expect a celebrity to turn up like that, can you? Purely from a movie or product branding/promo perspective, some effort can go into how one looks.

        • Please read the comment I replied to. It says one has to be prim and proper when draping a saree. There are different ways of dressing up in a saree, and that adds to the beauty. And what’s wrong with wearing a Kerala white traditional saree to a promotion? So is there a rule that they have to wear only designer sarees?

        • She meant that in the South having freshly washed hair left loose and not ironed out by some gadget is perfectly fine for an celebrity event.

          The dominance of the “Bollywood inspired by Dubai and Hollywood” look as an “ideal” has always been seen in this blog. It may come as a surprise to many that not everyone likes the look. Ironically having decided that it is high fashion, girls who get stylists – who then slavishly recreate this look – are dubbed “clownish”. Sai Pallavi would have met the same fate.

          PS: Come on, no need to get friends over to downvote:)

    • Lolol, what an arrogant and patronizing tone! What made you say ‘regular girl’? Only modern makeup and made-up hair makes one special? She is a doctor, dancer, intelligent(listen to any interview of hers) and very confident girl! And what makes you think that being ‘humble and simple’ are just excuses to not excel? Her field is ‘acting’ and she definitely excels in that, just because someone’s aesthetics are not influenced by western culture, doesn’t mean they are not pleasing..

      • I think Jord was referring to looks. What has her being a doctor, dancer and intelligent got to do with how she looks? She’s a celebrity and the point being made is, since you’re in the public eye, a little effort can go into looking nice ( in her case…. trimming or setting her hair, basic makeup to get rid of the shine and highlight her pretty features). And where does western culture even come into this discussion. Relax. It’s a fashion blog. Critique her fashion. Full stop. If we were to consider academic degrees and intelligence to critique how one dresses, then half of them wouldn’t make it here or would score very very low.

        • Thank you, if you reread the original comment and notice this line ‘words like these are excuses not to excel in fields that demand aesthetic excellence’, you would understand why I had to mention all her accomplishments.. to convey that not every simple/homely girl is average in her work whether it is films or technical..

          Trimming of hair is not done by many kerala and punjabi women, I can’t generalize but I know few women who don’t cut or trim their hair because of their religious beliefs.

          Also not everyone needs to like a look, everyone who visits this site knows and is well aware that this is a fashion blog. So just comment on the look in a respectable way, don’t try to rub the ideas in the name of aesthetic excellence and don’t demean the words humble/simple as mere excuses.

  5. The Pink saree look is so good – clean and all well in place.
    The red saree – Hair and makeup are off. Since there is a stylist also involved here, am sure, they could have done better than that. Thats a definite miss

  6. Love her in the red Label Earthen sari. She is simple and graceful and has the courage to go almost make up free which is quite something in the glamor world.
