Okay, first things first. I’m a fan of Sridevi’s dress sense. She can carry off a short tube dress with the same elegance that she does a simple chiffon sari or a heavily emroidered anarkali. She just turned 50 and still refuses to get predictable in the wardrobe department. An innate dress sense is unarguably a quality that most can only hope to posses, but Sri has it in abundance.
So, it’s surprising to see her turn up at designer duo Abu Jani – Sandeep Khosla’s “The Golden Peacock”, an evening of couture for the Sahachari Foundation at The Ball Room, Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Mumbai. While there’s nothing wrong with the choice of dress, it’s the bulging bosom that has us staring/ wondering/ confused…? You gotta admit, it’s very unlike Sri, who always dresses to impress, not to attract unwanted attention.

Actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made heads turn when she walked the Cannes 2012 red carpet, showing off her post delivery curves in an Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla Indian ensemble. The outfit met with mixed reviews – with most fashion critics harping on the fact that the beige and gold sari only highlighted Ash’s voluptuousness. This time, however, the fashion duo seemed to have the approval of a majority of critics, as they dressed actor Tabu for the Golden Globes 2013. Yes — our darling Tabu dazzled on the red carpet in an equally inflaming red and gold sari. She was accompanied by Life of Pi director Ang Lee and the actor who played her son, Pi, in the movie, Suraj Sharma. Talking about the gorgeous sari, Abu-Sandeep said, “This mirror work jacket is a revival of our vintage work in mirror from 24 years ago. We teemed it with a sari in vermillion, the colour of India. She carried the ensemble and herself to perfection, the way she always does.” Jackpot, we say!
Actor Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara was clicked attending the wedding celebrations of her father with actor Kareena Kapoor. The young lady wore an Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla mirror work chamak ghagra in pastel shades of light green and pink for the sangeet ceremony.
And is it just us, or Sara looks like a replica of her mom, actor Amrita. Given how most Bollywood betas and betis are unimaginably plump before the acting bug hits them, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a slim and trim Sara all set to woo the camera in a few years from now.
