In her next saree pic, she was seen twirling around so that her back was shown, revealing the beautiful pallu. Her fresh-faced smile was more than an accessory for the photo shoot. Her post read –

The saree by Sabyasachi Mukherjee was a light beige one with heavy embroidery and sequin work and a zari border. The pallu of the saree has ornate embroidery. She teamed the saree up with a sleeveless blouse and a simple braid. Her makeup and accessories were minimal. And yet she looked absolutely gorgeous.

Bollywood Apsara Awards 2012


vidya balan in sabyasachi mukherjee saree at apsara awards 2012Just one word , WOW…. Apsara awards 2012 left us speechless when the entire Bollywood beauties turned up in traditional Indian attire. While some sticked to their trademark style , others went ahead and did a fabulous job. An award function’s red carpet is no less than a Fashion Gala when these beautiful girls left no stone unturned to give their best.

Out of all the ladies draped in a saree , our favourite was Anushka Sharma who looked a stunner in a Sabyasachi saree. It was a half net , half velvet saree with golden borders. She teamed it up with a full sleeves black saree blouse with heavy work. Priyanka on the other hand kept it simple in a plain white saree. Amisha Patel looked hot in a net black saree with halter neck saree blouse.

Although Vidya Balan was as usual in a Sabyasachi Mukherjee but it was way different from the sarees she had been wearing lately. It was a pretty designer embroidery saree with short sleeves saree blouse in round neck pattern. Sameera Reddy looked elegant and chic in a silver designer embroidery shimmer faux georgette saree with mirror and embellished border work paired with designer embroidered sleeveless saree blouse. This saree was a number by Falguni and Shane peacock. Other ladies who made an appearance in a saree was Mahi Gill , Divya Dutta and Ragini Khanna.

A guide to the sizzling Sarees of Rani Mukherjee


rani mukherjee in gold-sareeRani Mukherjee, Bollywood’s Bong star is mostly seen dressed in Sarees. Not only she sports this Indian look in award nights but she looks extremely comfortable and chic, being in the skin of the quintessential Indian woman. In sarees, though she endorses many designers, but it is Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s creation that she prefers wearing the most.

Rani Mukherjee’s take on Sarees

Rani seems to have a fetish for the color red. Be it a gorgeous heavy polka dotted saree with golden gota patti (border) on the pallu that she wore at Shilpa Shetty’s wedding reception or a simple saree in net fabric, it is the color red that is dominant in her choice.

She was once spotted in a translucent saree, which made her look sizzling, more because of the color red and the revealing silver crystals laced doris at the back of the blouse. The poise to carry a see-through net saree as well as a heavy designer silk saree is always seen in Rani. At the launch of Dance Premier League, Rani was seen wearing a golden saree with red velvet patti (border) with golden embroidery on the pallu, which clearly reveals in some form or the other, the color red is present in her attire. She looked gorgeous in this Manish Malhotra design.

Rani loves to wear net and tissue sarees as she has been witnessed most of the times wearing sarees of this variety. Among other kinds, she prefer chiffons and at special occasions silks. However, during the Durga Puja she is mostly seen wearing the Handloom Cotton Sarees of Kolkata or the heavy silks of Southern India. A great sense of mixing her saree wardrobe gives this Bong beauty a mix of a girl-next door as well as a diva look.

Rani Mukherjee’s take on Accessories

Rani surely knows what to wear with what kind of saree to get the appropriate simple yet diva look. She knows how to strike the right balance in sarees and its accessories. She likes wearing simple round banjara earrings with dark royal blue sarees, which are elegantly laced with rusty shades brocade and golden botis.

She has also been spotted wearing a chunky pearl necklace suiting pink sequins work done on chiffon saree at a certain occasion, which she paired it with a silk sequined halter blouse. Rani usually prefers big bangle earrings to small tops.

She is hardly seen carrying purses, but the lady didn’t lag behind in matching polka dotted red saree, she wore at Shilpa Shetty’s reception, with a sleek golden clutch. Rani loves to wear halter neck and noodle strapped blouses, which gives the “diva look” with see-through chiffons and net sarees.

Whatever, the saree type is, whatever the color is, this lady knows how to capture the hearts of millions of fans with her effortless yet dazzling Indian stylization in nothing other than India’s National dress – sarees.
