What happened here? Somebody fix the colors on my screen    designer saree

Azeem Khan’s festive collection launch at Colaba. There is something awfully wrong with this. It is so cluttered and busy and lacks focus.

In all of these sarees, there are way too many things happening – overdone pallu, over the top blouse and as it that wasn’t enough, jewelry that further detracts from the most important thing, the face of the person wearing that saree.

Rich Royals or decorative Nautch Girls? The array of jewellery is overwhelming! The reclining girl is wearing a few too many necklaces, but I like the piece encasing her hair – what are those called? And she has a solid circlet, like a big bangle, around her neck as well. The sarees both appear to be light-weight cotton or a silk and cotton, with golden borders and fancy pallus, but no patterning on the main fabric. One wears a contrasting colour choli, the other a tight blouse that matches her saree. It isn’t possible to tell how the sarees were actually draped. Unlike the simply dressed maharanis, these are “fancy-women” being shown off in a seductive pose, captured for posterity in their exuberant finery.

What if you like wax statute better than the real person?! If the wax statute was wearing a saree, I’d totally vote for keeping the statute and retiring Kareena. Who would know the difference?

This is Rakshanda Khan – a TV actress from the show Sas be kabhi bahu thi.

I am still trying to understand this vertical striped blouse with this saree. Antique zaree look saree is OK, but it looks out of place at the Apsara award and certainly the blouse might have vertical stripes, but it doesn’t seem to have any direction.
