The charm and sophistication of the Indian saree is unmatchable. It has now become a hot favorite internationally and even the firang babes have not been left untouched by the magic of this stunning silhouette. Of late, the international fashionistas have been making a global style statement with the saree. Many celebrities from Ashley Judd and Naomi Campbell to Victoria Beckham and Pamela Anderson have been recently spotted looking gorgeous in the exotic Indian saree. Hollywood celebrities are surely getting a generous dose of our desi tadka and this is pretty evident from the growing popularity of saree among the international divas.
So what is it that makes the saree break all barriers?
The key is to make the saree easily wearable for Hollywood celebs. Designers these days make ‘Concept Sarees’ that have pleats and pallus already in place. One just has to slip into it. Waow…that sounds pretty simple! Just wrap the saree, put the pallu over your shoulder and you are ready to go!
Even when worn in the simplest of fabrics, saree is surely a head-turner. Team it up with traditional blouses or go in for noodle-straps and corset styles; you are bound to look gorgeous. The international glamour girls like to combine the modern with ethnic looks and this is what gives an extra edge to the saree these stylish celebs wear! Let’s take a look at how international celebrities rocked in our very own six yard wonder….
