While I certainly don't love the sari - you all know how I feel about strapless sari blouses (hate 'em) - let us pause for a moment and reflect upon the fact that it appears that Ms. Koirala actually expended some effort to look presentable in public. Gone is the severe aunty ji style severe ambada and kajal overload coupled with jarring red lipstick. They are replaced by soft, shimmery make up (i.e. more than just eye liner and lipstick) and a sleek up-do. A touch of peach blush does wonders for her! Ms. Koirala looks polished and sophisticated, yet she has a youthful glow about her. I'd say this is a vast improvement for her on all fronts (need I remind you of previous disasters?). Let us rejoice!Photo Source.
Manisha Koirala attended designer Maheka Mirpuri's collection preview in the designer's own creation. The two are apparently pals, or at the very least, Manisha is her muse, as a pic with the actress is featured on the designer's web site and Manisha is featured in Maheka's 2009 ad campagin as well. As a side note, I quite like the light blue and gold anarkali Manisha is wearing in the snaps featured on Maheka's site. You'll notice Manisha's wearing the same bow tie brooch both on the web site and at the preview itself.(L-R) Manisha Koirala, Maheka Mirpuri
