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?!
