I really don’t like this concept of bridesmaid’s sarees. No matter how beautiful the saree is, you put four of them together, it looks awful!
I know, you want to show off the bride but you can do that by having the bride wear red or something, why make a caricature out of the other pretty girls?

Aren’t these three young women just adorable in glorious black-and-white? I love how the standing girls’ sarees follow mid-fifties fashion and have slightly bouffant “skirts” instead of the slim verticality of other years. One of the most amazing things about the saree is that it can be au courant and trendy, not merely “timeless” when worn. Hair styles, makeup and accessories change with the times, and the eternal saree does so as well!
The girl sitting on the fountain wears eyeglasses of the era, and her style of frames would be retro-chic, one of the hot looks available now. In fact, I just got new glasses made last week – in fun, geeky frames. People do say that if you wait long enough, various fashions will come back into style. Sarees are clearly the coolest thing going as they never go out of style.
The caption below is from the original image negative (found on ebay), from the archives of the Chicago Sun Times newspaper. I simply couldn’t wait till August to post it:
Chicago residents Akhtar Ahmed, Mrs. Mehroo Rhote, and Mrs. Lorna Derozarid are celebrating Indian Independence Day at the University of Chicago, August 15, 1956. India’s Independence Day is celebrated on 15 August to commemorate its independence from British rule and its birth as a sovereign nation on that day in 1947. The main event takes place in New Delhi, where the Prime Minister hoists the National Flag at the Red Fort and delivers a nationally televised speech from its ramparts. In his speech, he highlights the achievements of his government during the past year, raises important issues and gives a call for further development. The Prime Minister also pays his tribute to leaders of the freedom struggle.

I like the saree ensemble, Yellow is an odd color but it is a bold color and the net sleeves help bring the color palett down to something that is pleasing.
I even like the appliqué on the blouse.
The problem is that it is all silver and she has ton of gold jewelry on and it is clashing.
You can see more of the gold part and you can also see the lemon yellow blouse….

Teja Bhai and Family is a malyalam movie. Release date is this month. The reason it is notable? Shakeela!
No one believe, who had already seen shakkeela movies, that Shakkeela will do a comedy role in any movie. All the peoples are after her “A” certified movies (that would be X rated movie in US). But the fact is Shakkeeela will be now seen in a comedy role in upcoming Malayalam movie “Teja Bhai and Family”.
Prithviraj trying to hand in doing full length comedy first time in “Teja Bhai and Family”.
Shakkeela had already tried comedy roles in films such as “Engira Bhaskaran” and “Shiva masassile shakthi”, which has no big success for her. Shakkeeela already stopped herself appearing B grade movies and will now concentrate on family friendly movies to make a new image
