The time has gone when white was a ‘dress-code’ for Indian widows. See around and you will find our most fashionable Bollywood divas draped in these whites. Let us discuss few stylish ways you can don this head-to-toe white saree look!
It was the eve of Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s 50th birthday when the yesteryear actress Rekha stepped into her trademark traditional South Indian Silk saree – but all White! With lace embroidered white blouse with romantic ruffles down to her waist, her white saree made her look gorgeously vintage.
And when you are still struck with Rekha’s look, here walked Ms. Deepika Padukone in a sheer white net saree. The high neck white blouse, lace border in saree edged with pearls gave her a retro look. It was like a heroine from 60s has just made an appearance. Deepika balanced the look with matte red lips. Classy.
THE ROYAL LINKAGE: Examples like Maharani Indira Devi of Cooch Behar, who had her sarees created in France to match her specifications, and later Maharani Gayatri Devi who also wore vintage chiffons in whites and pastels.
THE BOLLYWOOD TOUCH: We can blindly credit Bollywood for giving a touch up to white saree look. The sensuality in chiffon sarees, under the trees, in the rains can’t be described in words. Wearing see-through white saree has really made a big impact on Indian fashion.
