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.

In a still from English Vinglish, Sridevi is carrying the Arno bag by Hidesign. Price: Rs 3995
Sridevi’s fans are super-excited to see her make her comback with English Vinglish. Most homemakers are gung ho about the mostly simple sometimes elaborate South Indian style saris she’s worn in the film. But guess what we chanced upon? Even though Sridevi’s character in the film lives in USA, some of the bags she’s carrying are from Hidesign’s stable. Yup, apparently the brand retails from California too! Bet you didn’t know that! Carmel Plaza, Corner of Junipero and Ocean Avenue, Carmel By the Sea, California, to be precise. The brand has outlets in most malls in the country, so sourcing one in India shouldn’t be a problem. Now that women have Sridevi’s stamp of approval on it, we’re assuming these two pieces will soon fly off the shelf!
