Top Ten Worst and Best Dressed Women of India

What right do I have to comment on anybody's style? None, really. But I have always enjoyed reading Mr Blackwell's lists of top ten best and worst dressed people. And I did not come across any such list featuring Indian women, so I thought I should come up with one.

There are so many online photo-galleries now, with pictures of celebrities and non- celebrities attending diwali, birthday and eid bashes to chautha ceremonies and prayer meetings, that it is easy to see who is wearing what and where. Mostly they are the usual suspects  -same people who move from event to event,  so it is easy to figure out a pattern in the way they dress.

For my worst dressed list I have included women who I think pay attention to what they wear and how they look but somehow get it wrong, mostly by overdoing it.

I always wish that all my posts should be bi-lingual - in english and in marathi. It doesn't happen. But I have tried to do it here, whenever possible. (All photos are from Google images)

                                          Worst Dressed
                                                                          No. 10
                                                                   Aishwarya Rai              

Why does she wear those anarkalis? With yards of fabric flowing below the waist they belong nowhere else but on the silver screen. Why have Indian designers taken them out of Umrao Jan and Pakeeza and brought them out on the streets and why have Indian women embraced them, I am not sure.

ऐश्वर्याचं जेंव्हा नविनच लग्न झालं होतं तेंव्हा हरिवंश राय बच्चन यांच्या जन्म शताब्दी निमित्त लिंकन सेंटर मध्ये झालेल्या एका कार्यक्रमाला ती नवरा आणि सासऱ्यांच्या बरोबर आली होती.  तेंव्हा तीनं  भडक गुलबक्षी रंगाचा चमकता अनारकली घातला होता. भडक गुलबक्षी रंगाचा चमकता अनारकली न्यूयॉर्कमध्ये घालू नये. तो कुठेच घालू नये. तो उमराव जान  आणि पाकीझानी सिनेमाच्या पडद्यावरच घालावा.

                                                                              No 9

                                                                        Vidya Balan


Some people may find her well -dressed,  I don't. With her 60's style long sleeved blouse she appears to be trying to cover up her arms more than making a fashion statement.

मीना कुमारी स्टाईल लांब बाह्यांची पोलकी घातलेले विद्या बालनचे इतके फोटो नेट वर आहेत कि असं वाटत ती त्या लांब बह्यांमध्ये अडकुन पडलीय.
                                                                             No. 8


Always shining and shimmering with tons of heavy gold jewelry, loud eye make up, and golden hued sarees - need I say anything more about her style.

रेखाच्या सोनेरी स्टाईल बद्दल कमीच बोललेलं बरं.
                                                                           No. 7
                                                                     Supriya Sule

चुरगळलेली कॉटनची साडी आणि दोऱ्यात ओवलेलं मंगळसूत्र - पण कशासाठी?
Many women have shown that cotton sarees can be worn beautifully- for example: Indira Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Jaya Jetley and many others.  Supriya Sule is not one of them. Maharashtra needs and deserves better dressed women politicians, I think.

                                                                     No. 6

                                                                       Madhuri Dixit

It is unfortunate that in spite of being in the show business for a long time and living abroad for many years, Madhuri has not been able to develop a unique style of her own .

स्मिता पाटीलला स्वतःची विशिष्ट स्टाईल होती. माधुरीला नाही. 

                                                                             No. 5                                                                        

                                                                        Gauri khan

In spite of being a star -wife and probably having access to the best shopping places in the world, her style seems to be stuck in clothes that are either too short or too tight or too low cut.       

                                                                            No. 4

                                                                  Malaika Arora Khan

Like  Gauri khan, Malaika Khan wears clothes that are always more revealing than necessary.
                                                                             No. 3
                                                                         Shobha De

After commenting on other people's style for years, Shobha De hasn't been able to come up with a decent style of her own either. I have seen her photos at parties and events where she is dressed in some odd outfits in neon colors and wearing chunky mismatched costume jewelry.

                                                                          No. 2
                                                                  Poonam Dhillon

There are a lot of photos of this yesteryear actress on line - mostly badly dressed.

                                                                           No 1
                                                                    Kiran Juneja

She looked cute in Buniyad.  Now she is an example of what not to wear.
