Best Dressed: Sridevi

A few days into the new year and Sridevi's already topping Best Dressed lists.
Here's one from IBN Live.

"Sridevi in Sabyasachi: Just one glance and she ensnared the onlookers with her elan. Sridevi's level of elegance was off the scale as she stepped out wearing a stunning sari by Sabyasachi Mukherjee at 'Shamitabh' music launch. She teamed up the champagne coloured sari with a polka dotted blouse. With the only accessory being the pair of the pair of earrings, her look was simply unmatchable..."

Puli (2015)

No official pics of Sridevi from her upcoming Tamil film Puli have been released yet. But that hasn't stopped fans from creating montages. Here's some fab fan art.

Portrait of Sri from her visit to Japan, ensemble by Sabyasachi, digital renderings added by Puneet Sharma.

With Saif Ali Khan

Sridevi's shoot with Saif Ali Khan for Filmfare magazine. This was rather a superstar-coup.

Tribute to the legend Ilaiyaraaja

A constellation of India's greatest stars hit the stage to honour maestro Ilaiyaraaja. Organised by producer/director R. Balakrishnan (popularly known as R Balki who has made the off-beat and brilliant films Cheeni Kum, Paa and produced English Vinglish), the brightest luminaries of Indian cinema Sridevi, Rajnikanth, Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, along with the cast of "Shamitabh" (that includes Dhanush and Akshara Haasan) were seen sparkling at the event.

During the glamorous night, R Balki said, "We are celebrating 1,000 films of Ilayaraja, but I want to clarify that 'Shamitabh' is not Ilayaraja's 1,000th film. Southern director Bala's film is the 1,000th film of Ilayaraja."

For fans of Tamil cinema, what a moment it was when the three biggest names stood together after aeons, Sridevi, flanked by Kamal Haasan and Rajnikanth. Dressed in a sari with her hair pulled back, the actress stood tall among the legends. As the images from the even went viral online, many commented how the acting greats of cinema should unite on screen for a film.

A momentous moment (!) for movie mavericks and buffs! We love alliteration in this blog... ;0)

East or West, Sridevi's the Best

Unlike her contemporaries, hell, or even her successors, there are few stars who look as glamorous and as confident in either Indian or a western ensemble as Sridevi does. Tall and striking, with her remarkable features and expressive eyes, Sri can walk any red carpet event with the confidence of a diva, undiminished by time, unfettered by fads. There are few who can pull off a sari with ease, fewer who can maintain faultless posture in a risque gown. She isn't stuck in time with her fashion nor as she a slave to contemporary trend. She works with what works for her. This diva can strut like the uncrowned Queen that she is. East or West, Sridevi's the best.
