Actress Lillete Dubey was one of the best things about the “Indian Summers” television series. She always looked beautiful, well-dressed and elegant, even when the Parsi mother she played was having serious family issues. Most of the cast had character portraits made by the staff still photographer, Matt Brandon, a practiced hand with a camera. Set in 1932 Simla, the costume drama was an uneven soap opera dealing with a variety of personal and political themes – too many, actually.
Nearly all of the Indian women in speaking parts wore quite attractive sarees, and I loved all the cholis with puffed sleeves, a period touch we see in original images from the 1930s. Ms Dubey’s sari is a nice mix of subtle cocoa brown on beige, with a fresh turquoise and bright yellow. The design elements in the print are classic, and as correct for most of the 20th century as they are for today. I’m looking forward to the second season of “Indian Summers” to see how their costumers handle the later styles, going into the 1940s, I believe.

Nikhil Thampi’s edgy drape adds such a modern look to this 9-yard saree.

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 just loooove this combo.
Kareena is wearing Dev R Nil saree with a jacket as a blouse; yes, the jacket is the blouse.
How delightful and how interesting does it look!
Is it my absolute favourite saree styling? Of course not, it does look slightly out of proportion, but I don’t care. I find this fusion alluring and different and attractive.
The saree was styled by Tangharvi https://www.instagram.com/tanghavri/ check out her instagram.

I have been meaning to post Scarlet’s saree pictures for a long time..
But when I saw her saree pictures, with an unusual tattoo mixed together, I felt compelled to post
Click on the image to read the text of her tattoo
She did a an item number called Kamariya in Shanghai.
“I feel I was born in the wrong country,” says British model Scarlett Mellish Wilson, 24, the newest foreigner found swivelling her hips to Foreign Kamariya in Shanghai. She is happier shaking her booty than doing ballet and so made a beeline for Bollywood after studying performing arts at London’s Tiffany Theatre College. She assisted on choreography for the TV show Chak Dhoom Dhoom and next rubs shoulders with Amy Jackson in Telugu film Yevadu with Ram Charan Teja in the lead.
The tattoo says
Dance like nobody’s watching;
love like you’ve never been hurt.
Sing like nobody’s listening;
live like it’s heaven on earth
Supposedly Mark Twain quote.
