I don’t remember a time when the florals were completely out of favor! This one is interesting because it shows orange roses with stems and leaves being rose colored; this is the oldest trick in the book. Change the colors so that the there is a transference of colors from one element to the other and it gives it just a tad excitement.
This is such a remarkable picture!

If I had a category called “un-sexy” or even “anti-sexy”; I would file this in that folder.
If you can’t handle strapless, don’t try to fake it!
She puts on a nice silk saree and ruins it all by showing plastic straps. She puts on a gold armlet and gold dangling earrings and ruins it all with those plastic scraps.
Even the straps are in some dirty orange color with kiddish floral designs on it – waste of electrons to take even a digital picture of something this bad!
She would have looked so glabrous and so pretty and so sophesticated if she had just chosen to wear a spaghetti strap or a thin strap with crystals or zari on it.
If she wasn’t so pretty, I would get really mad at her!
If you haven’t figured, this is Karishma in a saree.
The saree is unremarkable, unless you consider the plain saree in itself as remarkable; and I can’t tell much about the blouse except that it is glittery and tassels and is embellished. That’s why I think the saree needs to have a zari border so that you are not relying on the blouse for the glam look.
But she has something else going for here – wonderfully coiffed hair. Looks like she just walked out from the salon after hours of teasing her hair to make them look absolutely perfect. And I think she succeeded; I am not sure about the tikka, but Liza looks Marvelous – to borrow a phrase from the 80′s.
Sometimes you see the colors, you see the texture, you see the embellishment and yet, the personality of the saree doesn’t come out.
Here is an example; remember that saree is nothing but six yards of attitude!
