I am not too fond of geometric designs on a saree, but this looks pretty nice.

I really wished we could figure out this issue of how to carry the mobile phone when you are dressed to the hilt!

Clutch bag is fine, but if you are so beautiful and so popular, you have your phone ringing all the time and then taking it out of the clutch bag to answer it makes it even more awkward!.

What do you think of this chocolate blouse with a saree?

May be not, it will become too messy!

Gorgeous saree ads

 

I love this one; a great deal of effort has gone in to making the ad and it is appreciated.

The panoply of colors, the textures, the traditions, the culture clash, all captured in 120 seconds.

The most flattering thing that I can say about this blouse is that “it is form fitting” – nothing more.

Soha Ali Khan and Sharmila – who’s sassier?

Soha gets compared to mom Sharmila and for good reason. Soha herself takes great pains to look like Sharmila did in the 60s and 70s. And here she is wearing a simple blue sari with a vintage look blouse. Interestingly, half of the blouse matches the border of the sari, while the puffed sleeves are in a totally contrasting paisley print in maroon and green.

Interestingly, we found a picture of Sharmila (below) similarly peeking over her shoulder. Except that Sharmila is not wearing a sari, but a rather hot ensemble of tight hipster pants and cropped top!

I love Nandita Das, beautiful dusky complexion, piercing eyes, sharp features and serene look!

Except that I hate this ensemble. The heavy jewelry takes so much out of the impact of her beautiful face. The jewelry might be real 24 Ct gold, but it makes her look artificial! Sigh…

Now compare this to a picture of Nandiata on May 14, 2005 at Cannes.

Now this is the Nandiata that I love!

I saw Nandita Das a little over a year ago and chatted with her about her movie and I told her how much I loved her! But I wished I hadn’t met her; when I saw her, she was wearing some bohemian clothing and alas, she wasn’t the person I romanticized about.

But I don’t want to let reality interfere with the creations of new dreams with the help of fashion design.
