They have scorched the ramp, they have created fashion headlines and they have made both men and women skip many a heartbeat. And not just Indian celebrities, lately, hotties from the west too have dazzled in what is perhaps one of the most sensual outfits made for women – the Indian saree. And to everyone’s surprise they seem equally at ease in the 9 yards as their Asian counterparts.
Designer sarees are a must-have in every celeb’s wardrobe, not only does it beautifully accentuate the perfectly chisled figures, sporting a saree is also about embracing our culture and showing it off to the world. Saree is forever in fashion and a winner hands down!
Our beautiful leading ladies have redefined the saree and brought it into the international spotlight. Here are our top ten grossers who make the saree look deliciously sexy and viceversa.
Sonam Kapoor: ‘”I don’t do fashion. I am fashion.”
A trendsetter in her own right, Sonam carries every look with elan – from quirky prints to retro to avant garde – she manages to make a statement every single time she drapes a Saree. From Masaba to Anamika Khanna, she’s got it all in her million dollar wardrobe which anyone would want to raid. Take a glance at some of Sonam’s best Saree picks.
Deepika Padukone: “The only real elegance is in the mind, if you’ve got that, the rest really comes from it.”
Couple the tall and beautifully proportioned frame with a designer saree and you have got a winner. Not many women can look graceful and super sexy in a Saree all at the same time. Deepika is thus every designer’s muse and every Saree lover’s idol.
Priyanka Chopra: “And now, I’m just trying to change the world, one noodle strap at a time.”
Our original Desi Girl sets the red carpet on fire every time she flaunts her midriff. The quintessential exotic Indian beauty, PC is a perfect blend of subtle and glam. We still haven’t gotten over the 9 yards of oomph from her candy floss flick Dostana.
Kareena Kapoor: “It’s better to be late, than to arrive ugly.”
Over the years, Kareena has so beautifully evolved into the Indian woman and the femininity shines through every time she sports a Saree. The sheer georgettes and chiffons in striking colors and the noodle strap blouses are the ultimate fashion statement.
Elizabeth Hurley: “Forget the rules. If you like it, WEAR it.”
Hollywood meets Bollywood. Liz Hurley embraces the Saree with such ease, its hard to say this is not an outfit she wears often. During her recent visits and other appearances she has captured everyone’s attention with her Saree exploits, if you know what we mean!
Katrina Kaif: “Style is a deeply personal expression of who you are, and every time you dress, you are asserting a part of yourself”.
She is blessed with a long torso and that makes her look exceptional in saris. She brought in the trend of wearing the Saree very very low. Katrina draped in a Saree, that’s what perfect pictures are all about, aren’t they!
Shilpa Shetty: “Women often try to tame themselves as they get older. But the ones who look best are often a bit wilder.”
Blessed with a curvaceous figure, she can carry off any style with ease and great poise. Shilpa favors bling in her sarees but looks no less stunning in them. Who says mommies can’t look hot!
Bipasha Basu: “I won’t cry for you. My mascara is too expensive.”
What happens wen the fitness goddess of the film industry drapes a 9 yard around her perfectly carved out frame. Jaws drop. Its a pleasant surprise to see the glamorous beauty carry the Saree with such grace, Bipasha is the ultimate Prima Dona of fusion fashion.
Paris Hilton: “A colorful life deserves a colorful dress.”
A flawless beauty and a fashion trendsetter, Paris Hilton is remembered for her stunning red monotone Tarun Tahiliani saree heavily encrusted with Swarovski crystals. Quite an anti-thesis to the Paris Hilton we usually get to see.
Anushka Sharma: “Oh, never mind the fashion. When one has a style of one’s own, it is always twenty times better.”
Climbing the charts of success, Anushka has not only proved herself as a talented actor, she has also appeased the fashion connoisseurs with her sartorial choices. The petite frame looks absolutely gorgeous in peek-a-boo sheer fabrics.
These divas have already made their mark as far as their love for fashion is considered, but we love them even more in these drapes that elevate their fashion quotient to another level altogether.
