While taping her television show, Madhuri was photographed in an Anju Modi sari on the sets. I understand that this look was a nod to “retro” (per stylist/designer), bit it wasn’t one I was a big fan of.
Considering everything veers to OTT when it comes to TV shows styling, in that context perhaps the look works. And Madhuri makes the look work but she shouldn’t have to!
There are so many other ways to do a retro-inspired look, and this wasn’t it. Between a polka-dot sari and a puffy-sleeved blouse, you already have a winning combination. Why then the blouse with awkwardly placed embroidery/embellishment, the belt, the shoes. Those shoes! Why does the TV aesthetic always have to be so loud (and this is not in reference to this look in particular but all television shows’ styling in general)?
