I love Nandita Das, beautiful dusky complexion, piercing eyes, sharp features and serene look!
Except that I hate this ensemble. The heavy jewelry takes so much out of the impact of her beautiful face. The jewelry might be real 24 Ct gold, but it makes her look artificial! Sigh…
Now compare this to a picture of Nandiata on May 14, 2005 at Cannes.
Now this is the Nandiata that I love!
I saw Nandita Das a little over a year ago and chatted with her about her movie and I told her how much I loved her! But I wished I hadn’t met her; when I saw her, she was wearing some bohemian clothing and alas, she wasn’t the person I romanticized about.
But I don’t want to let reality interfere with the creations of new dreams with the help of fashion design.
