I have always wondered about it; it is considered OK to use pins but not buckles.
This one looks interesting; a large buckle on the pallu and a matching small one on the blouse. At least the one on the blouse seems purely decorative.
One could argue that this is not a saree at all, its just a dress. I don’t think I will put up too much resistance to that notion.
Also note the body jewelry at the Navel.
Interesting concept nonetheless.
This is really an interesting piece (referring to the saree not Celina), normally when I think of Bandhini style, what comes to mind is a cotton ethnic saree with has certain down to earth quality and is “simple” in terms of other embellishments on the saree.
However, here the saree and the blouse are heavily embellished with zardozi and ornate trim and the result is very pleasing.
I also like the color combination of dark blue with red-orange (looks more like scarlet or vermillion) color. The lehers (the waves in the bandhini design) are well proportioned and the pallu depiction shows the mastery of Bandhini technique.
And I guess Celina is a perpetual contestant in the game of ” Below the navel – how low can you go” Olympic event.

Interesting composition. I know it is photoshopped, but I love the way the saree provides the backdrop of this scene. Its saying that the woman is filling the time and space around her with a symbol of a saree.
YSL once said that the best accessory a woman can have is the man she loves on her arm!
Yup, she is well accessorized. And the shoes aren’t bad either.

I have a slight preference for the white saree then for the red one, but both of them look great.
