Couple Talk

In the past, we’ve seen ladies (Madhuri and Aishwarya) don some OTT saris to the Padma Shri awards and we haven’t been fans. But, they were winners. Kareena, on the other hand, coordinated with Saif’s white sherwani by wearing a white Manish Malhotra and for a guest was dressed just right.

The outfit was formal but not outlandish and a good choice because it didn’t take attention away from Saif. Because, after all, it was Saif’s moment.

  1. Lovely! After Priyanka Chopra at the National Awards this soothes my sore eyes 🙂 Event appropriate, age-appropriate, supportive grilfriend appropriate!

  2. saif looks sooo good. he pulls of the sherwani really well. i like this look on him!! kareena also looks really nice, her make up doesn’t look OTT and is just right, but she doesn’t steal the spot light away from saif.

  3. Dear Priyanka Chopra,
    This is how you dress in front of the President of India and a crowd that is probably your parents’ age!

  4. awwww…..

    saif is totally working the white sherwani look…what a welcome change from the bandanas and big glasses….

    kareena too….right make up…n right clothes…when i read it was designed by mm i was apprehensive till i scrolled down 🙂

  5. Rarely have something nice to say about these two but here I gotta give it to them. Ten on ten. He looks good – she looks good and neither are OTT.

  6. Saif is looking like his “parampara” days….he shudnt keep his beard. Kareena seems to be tealling the whole word …he belongs to ME …based on her grip 😉 Her face, makeup and earrings are nice…dress not so much.

    • Completely agree with you RM… Its shameful that Manish has blatantly started copying Sabyasachi… From his half brocade half net saris to his cotton cutwork benarasi angrakha with velvet borders…

      Any Sabyasachi customer would know that this was one of Sabyas best sellers last spring. Manish Malhotra has not even bothered to alter the color combination in this case. Really shameful…

      Only in India can a designer get away with this…

  7. They both look fabulous! I normally don’t like MM’s creations but this one with it’s understated elegance definately suits the occassion and Kareena carries it off very well..and Saif looks very dashing in his elegant nehru collar suit!

  8. everything is picture perfect, barring the velvet !
    nonetheless *touchwood* the couple looks gorgeous here together! way to go saafeena ! 🙂

  9. saif is my fav among all khans…i love his comic timing…and the goofy kinda guys he plays…n i absolutely love him in his shrwanis…esp the black ones wid the jodhpurs..

    • Yep, the best Khan around, esp. in a comedy. He looks so yummy….very regal, almost. Would love to steal him if K would let go of her grip on him! Although I usually can’t stand Kareeena, I think she looks great here with that hair and earrings.

    • Mmmm yep. He’s definitely the best Khan. When he wears sherwanis my heart skips a beat. He looks so regal. And when he wears turbans…my heart stops altogether (for a couple seconds at least).
      @ Hema, I’m probably less than half his age, but I’d love to steal him too!! 😀

  10. They look amazing together. Perfectly dressed for the occasion. Kareena looks so beautiful. MM delivers this time. It is still his signature style, but done well.

  11. wow…words can’t describe how amazing they look – individually and particularly together.
    i love kareena’s chudidaar…and saif truly looks like a nawab

    my one question – why is it that when an manish malhotra outfit is bad, a million people stand up to say so
    and when one is actually this beautiful, the comments are “oh i didnt think he could actually come up with something like this” or worse yet “he is getting inspired by sabyasachi”
    freakin hell…excuse my language but the over the top sabyasachi adoration is one thing but to say any nice looking outfit must be inspired by him is ridiculous…does he have a trademark on contrasting borders or using prints…i find him overrated to start with but it’s sad that credit cant be given where credit is due

    Sure MM makes completely over the top outfits that I cant imagine wearing
    But this one is beautiful
    so why not give him a little something good when critisism is so free

    sorry about the long post!

  12. Saif looks oh-so-regal and so event appropriate !! I dont know what he got the award for, but when dressed like that, he sure looks deserving.

    And kareena looks nice too.

    She is just a tad bit shorter than him (taking into account her heels).

  13. I beg to differ PnP – Ash’s sari may be forgiven but not the halter blouse – covering up for a more dignified occasion makes all the difference… that is why madhuri, ash & PC looked so inappropriate.. Had they worn the same saris perhaps with a short sleeve blouse, the whole effect wouldn’t have been so tacky. Kareena would have looked equally tacky had she worn even a simple cotton sari with a spagetti strap or halter blouse…

  14. Yess! Ive bin waiting for you guys to post this!!
    How gorgeous does Kareena look? I mean she can give ANY girl a run for her money.
    You wanna take her home to mom when she looks like this.

  15. I was waiting for you to post this. Both of them look great and event appropriate. Saif looks regal in his sherwani and she really looks beautiful in the white MM. Way to go!!

  16. Saif looks soooo good that I can’t bother to look at Kareena.But I am glad that she didn’t distract me with any bright colors and OTT make-up.

    Do I spot a wedding band on Saif’s finger??!

  17. they both look great. Like Kareena’s earings, one piece of big jewelry really complimented the white outfit. Beautiful non-highlighted hair. Even the red nail polish looks OK.

  18. OMG!!! How hot does Saif look….totally working the sherwani…who can fault a nawab in a sharp sherwani………and kudos to Kareena for dressing to look like the beautiful supportive partner and not the highlight of the evening…

  19. Its time our indian actresses realize that dare-bare isnt always the way to go..especially when it comes to indian wear..
    I mean, if a gal with a banging bod like Kareena can look so much better when covered from head to toe, why does a priyanka chopra feel the need to reveal as much as possible even when in a saree at the rashtrapati bhavan?
    Kudos to Kareena for donning indian the right way, being oh-so event appropriate, and looking like a million bucks!

  20. I am confused – why is everybody talking abt madhuri – she wore a decent saree to the “awards” =)

    And this outfit is totally inspired by Sabyasachi – infact i was sure it was a sabya outfit till i read.

    But they both look awesome!

  21. I was wondering when most of use have seen the pics of saif and kareena at padma Shri why do we still want PnP to post it here ?

      • Uhm. I had not seen it before, some of us do not actually watch Hindi movies nor are aware of what’s happening in Bollywood and only check HHC because of the fashion =S

        I am just going to echo all the sentiments above- they both look amazing. I am in love with her earrings- so ethnic.
        Also, Megha, you’re right- dunno why people cannot give credit where credit is due.

  22. mr richie rich luks like a dapper,elegant,neat etc…..
    drool a bucket foolll..(full) ;p
    n kareena luks darn sweet in dat white

  23. They look like a lovely royal couple… So pretty Saif looks like a royalty.. They look like the perfect couple after Akshay and Twinkle.. Two thumbs up to both of them!!!!!!

  24. Love love love………….Kareena looks gorgeous,and she has got the sense what to wear in these type of occasion,am pointing to Ash’s choice,which was a Big no-no at the occasion(at any occasion) and her makeup was too a big let down…Saif looks royal here….

    I have seen Rekha’s pic somewhere at the same occasion,looking eleganl,wearing a beutiful saree….As take tips frm these ladies…

  25. They looks so gorgeously regal together, it makes me want to cry.

    My mom has a pair of earrings that are a LOT like Bebo’s plus I just bought this beautiful white chikan salwar kameez. And after looking at this, I’m tempted to get my boyfriend a similar sherwani, even though it would be the cheesiest thing ever.

    Any idea who its by PnP?

  26. i like this outfit of kareena’s but its a look we’ve seen since kurbaan which is ages ago!
    i wanna see something different from her.
    did anyone see her on lift karade w/ Kjo?
    she wore NO EYELINER or KOHL and loooked FAB! verrryyy refreshing!

  27. MM delivers! I absolutely love the salwar kameez. Does anyone know what the neck/top of the dress look like? Kareena is covering it with her dupatta in all the pics I have seen so far..would love to see what MM did with the neck…
