After I posted Kareena’s picture, I thought of Karishama and realized that I haven’t posted anything of her in a while. Sure, she was away from the limelight for a bit, and had some marital issues, but hey, if you can’t take away your marital blues by wearing gorgeous sarees, nothing else will work!!!
I don’t have to tell you that this is a Sabyasachi saree, do I?
Look at the texture, look at the proportion, look at the tactile feel and see how regal she looks.

I don’t have the patience to watch hindi movies, but I do take the time to watch hindi movie songs as “music videos” and I just marvel at the beauty of those videos. Each shot is superlatively composed, each frame is carefully constructed and color coordination is beyond belief.
One of my fav is the Dil Se’s song called Satrangi. Check it out, wonderful song, beautifully choreographed and cinematography is top notch.
This shot, Kajol in an orange saree is no exception.
What an eye catching composition. Also seeing Shahrukh and Kajol together in a new movie would be awesome.
What a dramatic scene this is – black igneous rocks, with ice blocks and Kajol wearing an orange saree personifying the fire that is engulfing SRK, who is wearing blue to connote water. Anyway, I made up all that subtext, but it could be right – that’s what I see in this picture.

Oh how much I hate this gown. And not because she disliked it herself either…
In my book, Masaba has a lots of hits and misses – remember the cow prints? I so hated those sarees…
On Instagram she commented on the embellished booblets… I couldn’t have coined a better word.
It is the same reason I hate some of the anarkalis – the booblets.
The issue is not just the booblets, but the whole thing – the blouse, the top, the lahenga – looks like some poor “masterji” who is not paid enough and is about to retire made this for a customer that he hates.
Any way, I am really happy about one thing, she did not make her bridesmaid wear something so atrocious.

Traditional Nice ethnic Bengali saree
Non-traditional saree which is like a bikini – Sarini, I call them.

From http://www.saree.com/exclusive-pink-pure-handloom-silk-saree-saaa5700 About $300.
Love the richness and depth that silk adds to the color, the texture of silk sarees is so inviting and so delicate, so alluring, perfectly suited for the beautiful woman that wears it.
Do I like the color combo? certainly note the choice of the blouse, but the saree by itself is well done. There is continuity of the color, occasionally disturbed by the contrasting colors. I don’t mind it.
