This is an interestingly different look for Ms. Rai – almost like she got tired of playing the sophisticate all the time and wanted to wear a shiny sari that she bought at the local bazaar. The peach color is flattering for her but the silver sequined sari border and gold sequined blouse I could live without….. A peach colored spaghetti strap blouse would have been perfect with the sari.
I have a weakness for saris. I live in Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa, where we experience a rich Indian Culture. This means that on my frequent visits to Charity Shops, I am almost always confronted by some “Second Hand Saris for Sale”! I just cant resist all those metres and metres of beautifully patterned fabric for around $1.50 or 70p [R10 for those of us in SA].
This is a great saree and a wonderful ensamble. I can nitpick by saying that the writst watch is a little out of place and a little too big for the delicate outfit, but that shouldn’t take away from the beauty of the saree. The cut on the blouse is revealing but not to the point of crossing the line of being decent.
Traditional red saree with golden border and matching blouse.
This is a classic contemporary design, sequins on a broad border and simple matching sleeve less blouse. One can raise up the glamor on this saree by putting on a sequined halter top blouse or a spaghetti strap blouse.
Avoiding the neck jewelry was probably the right thing to do; although with such a simple blouse, if she had added a silver necklace, it wouldn’t have been out of place.
