Vidya Balan in Saree : The Nine Yards Goddess

I miss Vidya Balan. I miss seeing her in movies. I am really really waiting for Teen’s trailer. Imagine Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin and Vidya in one thriller! It’s gonna be mind-blowing! When you think of Vidya Balan in saree, the first thing that came to my mind was, RED! She loves red sarees. Dirty Picture – Red saree, Mast Kalandar song from Hey Baby, red saree! Even the very recent Humari Adhuri Kahaani had the song Hasi, in which she wore a red saree! So red sarees are her lucky charm! If you want to take a look at some amazing red sarees online, head to VioletStreet.

  • Vidya Balan in Sabyasachi Sarees : She loves Sabyasachi, or loved. Rumors suggest that there has been a fall out between the actor-designer duo. Anyways, Vidya Balan looked enchanting in most of the Sabyasachi sarees she chose to wear. When I say most of them, I mean it! But Vidya Balan in Red saree with the high neck blouse and pearls, somehow, that look didn’t work. Even for her wedding, Vidya had chosen Sabyasachi, in red of course!

  • The ‘ooh-la-la’ Siren : We already know, that red is her lucky charm, so obviously she wears a lot of ’em. There’s no complaining here, as she looks real good. Especially, post Dirty picture, she used to look red hot! Ooh la la! Most of the blouses, she chose to wear post Dirty Picture, were backless, so ample amount of skin show 😉 The last one is my favorite as the Suhani Pittie neck piece looks amazing with the black saree! The simple black saree is something we all should have in our wardrobe!

  • Vidya in Gaurang Shah : Post Sabyasachi, Vidya has found herself a second favorite. Gaurang Shah is known for his kanjeevarams. And Vidya is known for her love for Kanjeevarams. They were destined to meet. Lately, Vidya has been spotted wearing Gaurang on multiple occasions and she looks stunning in them. She looks best in the Durga print white saree by Gaurang!

Sonam Kapoor in PRDP!

For all those who follow Sonam Kapoor, you might already be wondering about her looks in her latest movie, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

Hope PRDP wouldn’t meet the same fate as ‘Saawariyan’! The grand & colorful set, the zardosis and yards of fabric in the form of Sonam Kapoor’s lehengas, the jewelry and Sonam Kapoor’s poise add up to make Prem Ratan Dhan Payo a typical Suraj Barjatya movie.

We love AK and we hear Sonam has been wearing a lot of Anamika Khanna in the movie. We are already loving her look from the promos. Intricate jewellery and maang tikas by Sunita Kapoor, her mom, and traditional lehenga-cholis make her look like a perfect Rajasthani princess! Sonam has also been looking very pretty in all the traditional clothes she has been sporting during the promotional rounds.

We have a few exclusive snapshots from the movie. She looks ethereal in the colorful lehengas! Take a look for yourselves!
