This is a bit dated, from his 2003 or 2004, but I really liked the subtle earth tones and afrikana inspired jewelry.
I especially enjoy viewing the saree designs of non-desi or non-Indian for that matter, designers. They bring something special to the six yards of canvas and it is a different picture all together.
There is a lot of controversy about the cheer leaders at the Indian Premier Cricket League IPL. Politicians hate it when the cheer leaders wear skimpy clothes.
Here is a solution that I found recently. Let’s make saree a cheerleader uniform.
Something like this.
Just wait till they start dancing.
I am just kidding with the picture above, but seriously, if one wanted to have an ultra sexy saree for cheer leader uniform, that can be arranged!
We have seen it in many a bollywodd films. I don’t know whey it can’t be implemented at the stadium.
I will update this post when I find a perfect picture to show that a sexy saree uniform would work for the Indian Cricket League.
This is what the Orissa Cricket Association (OCA) chose for the uniform. Lycra for body hugging movement. Strangely, some of the UK sites are calling this a saree; proving once again that they don’t know cricket and they don’t know saree!
We have talked about lycra saree in this blog, but this is not it.
The Rabindrik dance form, as it is known, was developed following the tradition of Rabindra Nath Tagore’s music. The dance, as is the poetry upon which it is based, tells stories of the people. The dance form flourished in Nobel laureate Tagore’s haven, Shantiniketan.
The dancer wears a classic Tussore sari of Bengal, which is an unbleached natural pure silk sari, typically with a red and gold border. In the Tagore tradition, the sari is wrapped traditionally, other than the pallu which goes under the arms, around the back, and falls down the front, over the right shoulder. The sash that goes over the left shoulder, along with the matching belt, are typical of the Tagore dance tradition.
Everybody can make a fashion faux pas — except Aishwarya Rai — or so we thought, until we saw her in this transparent white sari with an unflattering bikini blouse underneath. There is only one way to put it — Aishwarya looks like she’s wearing a white bra under her sari!
One thing about transparent saris, especially white ones – you have to be extraordinarily careful about the kind of blouse that you wear. Too much adornment and it looks like a peep show. Too little, and the blouse begins to look like an under garment. To achieve a sexy, see-through look, the blouse has to be just right!
Aishwarya’s blouse is much too plain to wear under a highly see through sari.
This is a super transparent sari (below) with an over adorned blouse. It is ok to wear see-through, but not this much. There is a fine line between sexy peek-a-boo and just plain naked – and this sari – well, is just going – what line?
This picture of Kareen Kapoor shows that it is very hard to get the look right when wearing a super transparent white sari. In this case, the blouse looks more like an exercise bra.
So is it possible to get the see-thru white sari look right? Yes, if you take a look at Shruthi Hassan. The white sari is sheer but has embroidery to tone down the bareness. The bikini blouse is perfect. It has enough embroidery to not look like a bra, but not too much where everybody would be peering at it. By the way, is that just a strategically placed grey pearl on the sari, or does Shurthi have a pierced belly button?!
