Any woman who has ever worn a sari will agree that a sari never makes you look bad. You can drape it the way you want; you can style it to look demure, sexy or a complete bombshell! Bollywood ladies sure know how to be a head-turner in six yards of fabric. Koimoi.com looks at how these Bollywood stars drape their saris…
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
If the sari looked gorgeous on anyone, it has to be Aishwarya Rai. While sticking to light coloured saris, Ash usually experiments with the blouse, though not always with successful results (case in point: the velvet, full-sleeved one at Cannes). But when the doe-eyed actress goes traditional, she can give everyone else a run for their money!
Halter-neck, full-sleeved, sleeveless: though Katrina Kaif rarely takes the trouble to drape, she looks incredibly sexy when she does. Even then, the Brit-Indian actress sticks to chiffon saris.
The svelte Kareena Kapoor never shies from draping a sari. The sexy actress loves to show off her curves (and how!) and usually goes for the sari (mostly by Manish Malhotra) for non-promotional events. And yes, her blouses are to die for!
We’re not sure whether it’s her choice of sari or the blouse that just don’t do the trick for Priyanka Chopra. Though it’s very rare for her to go for a sari, we think that she should try a bit harder…
When you’re as elegant and sexy as Deepika Padukone, you don’t need an excuse to show off your figure. As hot as the leggy star looks in her bandage dresses, she’ll keep the temperature soaring in her saris as well.
How can this list be complete without the patron saint of saris in Bollywood today: Vidya Balan! With her exquisite Sabyasachi saris, Vidya gives all other actresses a run for their money by bringing this graceful raiment back.
Besides giving a lot of heartburn with that delicious figure, Anushka Sharma looks best when she goes 100% traditional in the sari (just look at her in that red sari!). Our only grouse is that the perky actress doesn’t don the sari too often…
The fashionista that she is, Sonam Kapoor keeps experimenting with her saris. To say the least, Sonam does look cute in them. While this star beti keeps her saris for those rare events, she manages to pull them off with élan.
