Over the past couple of weeks I managed to watch a couple of bollywood films, baad baaja barat, which I’ll blog about a little later and Tees Maar Khan, now I won't get to much into the film, but lets talk about the clothes, it was Katrina Kaif’s styling in the qawwali "Wallah Re Wallah" that was so reminiscent of the late Meena Kumari.
So I wasn’t surprised to read that it’s was her look in Pakeezah that was the inspiration behind Katrina’s look.
I really have a soft spot for this look, I put it down to my watching very old Bollywood films, as I was growing up ( thanks mum) It’s the joomar that does it for me, and it has to be on show not hiding behind the dupatta.
What do you think? Is it to old school? I think it’s still wearable for say a mendhi or sangeet??
