Who cares what she wore? There are other ways to represent India by the way she spoke, what did she speak about, etc etc

She even said herself one time she isn't into fashion she wears what she feels comfortable in so if she felt comfortable in that then theres nothing wrong with it.

Although there are alot of narrow-minded americans as well, just as there are alot of narrow-minded indians. I just don't want you guys strengthening their cases by being dismissive of western clothes or western culture in general, that's all!
OH GOD, I sound like such a GRAND DAD!!!!

And i also agree with you guys that Americans would have loved her in a sari too, and yes, my Californian friends are REALLY open-minded and sweet.

im confused...you say she can wear what she wants where she wants, then you give a final verdict: sari. This brings to mind a nice bit of dialogue from Bride and Prejudice:
Darcy: " There's nothing wrong with having standards"
Lalita: " yes, you're right, as long as you don't impose them on others"
I'll leave you guys to think about it.
And I LOVE WOMEN in saris, don't misunderstand me...yes you are right, she would have looked great in a sari...but I respect and understand completely, and agree, with what she chose to where in the end.

Messenger,
Excellent comment. That is exactly what I thought too. I am in California and people here are really open minded. She should have worn a sari but what can I say? Indians in India themselves try hard to be westernized (sigh..) but Aishwarya seems like she is an independent thinker. So she could wear what she wanted where she wanted. So the final verdict: sari!!

Master,
I hope you don't take this personally.I think Americans would have loved HER in a sari. That was an excellent opportunity to introduce indian costumes to America. If you
have lived in US you will come to know that the average American doesn't even know where India is. AFAIK personally Indian costumes generated tremendous response among co-workers. They wanted to buy a sari and enquired a lot. It is NOT uncool or rude if u appear in a sari on a Western talk show. People will remember HER more not less. If u wear a Western dress u are just one among them and easily forgotten.

Rohit i think u r aren't from india
whether u r from India or no but u have no rights to speak about our culture like this! mind ur tongue! i pray aishwarya should'nt look at this message! or else she'll feel v.bad! aishwarya is always in JEANS! when she is participating in any interview (expect those during shooting spots & any partys) check & see may be she's very comfortable with JEANS! or may be it's her favourite! Aishwarya looks beautiful in every type of dresses U (ROHIT) have no rights to say she'll look stupid these message board r only for fans not people like u

By the way, my last post wasn't directed at anyone in particular, it was just a general comment.
It may or may not apply to u.

Firstly- she IS there representing india...she said so herself before. Her quote was something like "well i'm not gonna get to represent india in the olympics, so this is the only way I'll get to represent india." Face it, even if she didn't want to represent india, she will always be looked upon as being some kind of representation. Saying that, wearing western clothes doesn't make anyone LESS traditional, or less Indian...YOU just don't wear a sari to a chat show. It's like wearing hot pants to a hindu wedding! ok maybe not that extreme...but there is a dress code which one sensibly follows with these kinda things. A sari is beautiful for formal evenings...but not respecting american ways of dressing makes it cool for Americans not to respect clothes which you wear in india.

Why didn't Aishwarya wear a sari when she was on 60 minutes or Letterman? She looks fabulous when she wears a sari. That would have projected a better image of India too cuz she's representing India and its culture. She claims to be traditional..so I didn't know why she wore western clothes to those shows..
