The sarees are beautiful, but most of the western style/make up looks very ' 90's beauty pageant '.

STL is right I never EVER meant to offend Indian people at all, but itīs just that i donīt like the Bollywood style though I like many Indian costumes, textiles and saris.

I've never been to India, but I'm pretty sure there are many well dressed (in Western clothes) Indian girls outta there. But I think it's hard to deny that Bollywood Western fashion (at least on this example) is tacky and cheap looking.
I never said that the East is better than the West, but yeah I agree that Bollywood Western Fashion is tacky and cheap looking. And I wasn't offended. All I was trying to say is that yeah the Western Wear may be cheap or whatever, but America has taken a lot of things from India as well that in my opinion look cheap and tacky, depending on where it's from though. Those examples posted up there of Celina Jaitley tho are terrible examples to represent India. there are so many other gorgeous girls who have a more natural approach to things..not many tho I must admit.

You guys are judging indian clothes from a western mindset. We think that these clothes look 80s, glitzy and cheap but its actually a relatively new trend in India and it's not 80s inspired. The inspiration for shirts with shiny embellishments comes from the fusion of western wear with indian wear. For example, fashion forward people in India will pair jeans with a tunic such as this:

and it will be more appreciated and liked than wearing the same jeans with a Nicole Richie type top. Also, Indian people love embellishments and shiny stuff on clothes and they find western clothes plain looking. In order to make western wear more appealing to indians, designers fuse the two elements and combine indian embroidery/embellishments with shirts and skirts and to make traditional indian wear more appealing to the younger generation, they make the tunics shorter, add spaghetti straps to saris etc.


I want to add that when Celina Jaitley wears western clothes they don't look dated or old fashioned. Her outfits are actually closer to what women in the western world wear than what indian women wear.
I don't see anything 80s like about these two dresses

Ooooh I am loving the saris from these pages. I am preparing for a Bollywood Night and I would love to go in some of these saris (although I don't have such nice bodies to go along with it, but that's another story). Think I will print some of these pictures to show the Indian sari shops here.

Have more coming, please!
