She got it right with the sindoor-red ghagra in her first Cannes appearance. She aced the Cannes Jury Photo Call event in a gorgeous beige and white sari,but then Vidya Balan decided to channel her inner Raajmaata-pallu and straight out of a desi daily soap at The Great Gatsby premiere. We know she loves Sabyasachi and she knows we love her but Vidya,that wasnt a dress,it was a costume. Maybe our girls got the wrong memo. How else can we explain Sonam Kapoors decision to flaunt the huge nathani (from her mother Sunita Kapoors jewellery line) which ended up dominating the lovely white lace Anamika Khanna sari with an embroidered jacket? Talk about playing up the Wests idea of Indian fashion stereotypes. It was left to Amitabh Bachchan to get it all right in a blue-white stripped jacket with white linen pants and white moccasins. Very Croisette,very summer. Give it up for Bachchan.
